In an effort to better help newbies who have found themselves on our server, we've made an all in one intro guide for you. It's all a work in progress as we gather information that seems relevant to the custom features and mechanics found here on XileRetro~
If you haven't already you can find our download(s) here, and can register here!!
We would first like to list a few other useful and information heavy pages for some of our customs.
- General Customs: Has basically every small detail to changes found within the server, mostly surrounding items and their effects or removal.
- Release Notes: Has every list of changes we've had from all updates.
Uh oh, upon your arrival to XileRetro the ship you came here on hit the reef and has sunk. Thankfully everyone is safe but Captain Carocc needs to help you catch your bearings and teach you a little about the server and what it has to offer while you wait for rescue!

The Newbie Room aka Newbie Zone will be a very helpful center for general information on custom items and monsters~

So you've just landed here and you have no clue where to go first.
WORRY NOT, we have that covered in our Leveling Spots Guide!
There are some things you can do to make yourself a little more powerful before setting out on your journey. First being to join a Clan. Clans are NPC owned guilds that offer special buffs.
Clans are perfect for newbies and for players that don't want to be a part of a guild just yet.
You've leveled up or maybe you just wanna take a break from grinding EXP and wanna take up some zeny farming instead?
WE'VE GOT INFO ON THAT TOO, right in our Zeny Hunting Guide!
This is where things get spicy. We have sooo many interesting things going on with our customs.
On-top of the skill modifications going on, we've got custom difficulty monsters, instances, and items.
While our focus isn't by any means who can be the cutest or coolest, it is fun to dress up. It doesn't matter who you are and what you'll like. There is a costume out there you are bound to enjoy~
PK Mode On
We are a PK Mode On server, which means once you reach level 11 any player can kill you. We feel that adds a little thrill to an otherwise PvM based game.
So in your PvM travels it is always smart to carry a Demi-Human aimed weapon and some good Demi-Human/Long Range resistance armor(s).
For your Weapon, we suggest the following depending on your class;
The Starter Package contains 4x Broken Monkey Fist Cards, which are a lesser effect version of our custom Monkey Fist Card (MFC).
Hydra Card increases damage to Demi-Human race (Players) by 20% per card and Monkey Fist Card (MFC) increased All stats by 10.
For your Armor(s), we suggest the following;
- Headgear: Broken Bloody Knight Champion Card / Bloody Knight Champion Card (BKCC)
- Armor: Broken Ghostring Card /
- Shield: /
The Starter Package contains 6x Broken Bloody Knight Champion Cards, which are a lesser effect version of our custom Bloody Knight Champion Card (BKCC).
It is unlikely you'll get your hands on a Ghostring Card right out the gates but the Starter Package contains a Broken Ghostring Card, which increases resistance to Neutral Property attacks by 40%. So it's good to wear that for PvE until you find a better alternative.
Horn Card reduces damage from Long Range attacks by 35%, a good resistance card for ranged classes. Melee would call for a Thara Frog Card to reduce damage from DemiHuman monster by 30%.
Lastly for Garment is Noxious Card to reduce damage from Long Range attacks by 10% and increase Resistance to Neutral attacks by 10%.
Likely one of the most important areas of ANY server is what gear to use. Here on Retro we have around 3 Tiers of gear types. Graded by Uber, Elite, and Godly.
Uber - Tier 1
- See Also: Uber Gear
Uber Gear, aka Tier 1, is your step up from the Starter Gear you are handed upon character creation. Meant to be your early-game setup, the gear you have as someone climbing the ladder of power.
Elite - Tier 2
- See Also: Elite Gear
Elite Gear, aka Tier 2, is your step up from Uber Gear. Meant to be your mid-game setup, the gear you have until you work just a little harder.
Godly - Tier 3
- See Also: Godly Gear
Godly Gear, aka Tier 3, is your step up from Elite Gear and the last and best tier. Meant to be your late/end-game setup.
