Ragnarok Mobile’s episode 6, Lighthalzen (Light and Shadow) update is officially coming to the SEA server on October 30, 2019.
Let me list some of the important changes and addition to this update. I’ll continue updating this post for possible corrections and for additional information about the recent changes.
New Town, Maps, and Main Quests
Episode 6 introduces a new town for players to explore. The city of light and shadow, Lighthalzen!
You can access this new town by going to Einbroch Field and going to the lower-left portal. From there, just go south (it’s the only portal in that map) and you’ll arrive at Lighthalzen.
And of course, along with a new Town comes with new main story quests. I know not most of us like doing the quests, but hey, this means we’ll have a bunch of free lightning chains and probably new wing or weapon aesthetics like the ones in Juno’s main quest.
Additionally, these maps and dungeons will be added:
- Lighthalzen field
- Bio Lab 1F
- Bio Lab 2f
New Monsters, Mini-Boss and MVP Monsters:
And of course, there would be new monsters. Here is the list of monsters you may encounter at each location:

New Instance Dungeon, Thanatos Tower
Episode 6 brings forth a new challenge, the Thanatos Tower.
Incidentally, this new raid dungeon introduces a new 2-Party Alliance System. This basically merges 2 parties to create a 12-man team party.
Seeing that there is a need to add a 12-member party system, the Thanatos Tower is probably one of the most difficult dungeons you’ll ever clear in Ragnarok Mobile.
Of course, the rewards are awesome too. As per the players in the China Server, the rewards can be headwear, pet or costumes. You can also gain materials for the advance rune system. More on this below.
New Advanced Rune System
The advanced rune system can strengthen your character by adding bonus stats or empowering a certain skill in your arsenal. A great example is the new comet skill which is an upgrade of the meteor storm skill.
This new system has nothing to do with the Aesir Monument at all. You will be needing materials to craft certain rune or upgrade them.
Check out our advanced rune system guide for more info.
New Feature, Armor Synthesis
Certain armors can now be synthesized to get a whole new armor with better stat and bonuses. This works pretty much the same as the Weapon Synthesis.
There would be new materials that can be obtained from the 120 pet adventure and new boss monsters.
I will also be publishing the full list as well as tips and tricks to obtain it in a different post.
New “House” System
The house system allows players to own houses and decorate them.
Having your own house gives a lot of perks like bonus stats for unlocking new furniture. Some furniture also gives an additional option like the ability to watch all past cinematics, your very own music box or furniture that levels up your pets automatically.
For more information, read our article about Ragnarok’ Home Function System full guide.
Does anybody suddenly want to play Sims?
New Mount System for All Classes
At the episode 6 patch, the mounts are no longer exclusive for the Swordman class. Once you reach 3rd job, players can take a quest to unlock mounts.
You can buy mounts using zeny or BCC. Mounts bought using BCC are a bit better looking. Anyway, each class will have different mounts available for them.
You can unlock more mounts through the multi-job feature.
Ragnarok Mobile episode 6 also brings a new job, the Super Novices. This brings nostalgia for those who played the classic RO like me.
Anyway, the super novice class can use any skills from all first jobs.
I wonder what skill combination is best for this for-fun-only character? But that’s for a different dedicated post. Stay, tuned!
Skill-specific Balance Updates
- Shadow Chaser’s Threaten skill cast range adjusted from melee to 2 meters.
- Parry and Auto Guard can no longer block Tetra Vortex.
- Clown/Dancer’s Invulnerable Siegfried ensemble skill can now be cast solo.
- Archbishop’s Calucio Heal can now remove 1 random debuff from allies.
- Magic Attack is now included in Damage Computation of Dragon Breath, Acid Terror and Acid Demonstration.
New Pet Fusion
Awesome new pets will be available. I don’t have accurate info regarding this yet but I managed to get some of the new pet additions:
- Orc Lady
- Orc Baby
- Moonlight Flower
Some Additional Changes
There are also some little changes that don’t need much additional explanation but are equally important:
- Max Job Level of tier 3 classes (Warlock, Shura, Archbishop, etc) increased from 60 to 70
- The base exp increased from 120 to 130.
- Goddess Blessing max cap increased from 30 to 40
- Combat Time is reduced by half but drop rate increased by 220%. This will allow you to farm fewer hours but earn pretty much the same thing.
- Cat Cafe items cannot be used on group PvPs anymore.
- Off-hand equips can now be enchanted.
- Additional tier upgrades for a lot of existing equip.
- Added INT, DEX and Magic Penetration on some enchantments.
- Double Recharge Reset.
The Ragnarok Mobile Episode 6 patch brought quite a lot of things in the game. This means new metas, grinding strategies and new challenges for the players.
