Ragnarok Online 2: Legend of The Second (Korean: 라그나로크 온라인 2: Legend of the Second) is an upcoming remake of Ragnarok Online 2: The Gate of the World (Korean: 라그나로크 온라인 2: The Gate of the World) the MMORPG created by Gravity Corp. of South Korea and is the sequel to the popular MMORPG, Ragnarok Online.
In July 2010 it was announced the first iteration of the game had been scrapped, and a new version, Ragnarok Online II: Legend of the Second, would be developed in its stead. The new iteration of Ragnarok Online II returns to the systems and mechanics of the original Ragnarok Online while keeping the 3D engine. The game engine was changed several times since it's predecessor opened its long running closed beta in 2007. It was mentioned that the new version of Ragnarok Online 2 will be using the Gamebryo engine. The previous iteration used Unreal Engine 2.5
The game's Closed Beta Test is set to start on August 31, and all past testers of Ragnarok Online 2: The Gate of the World will get access to the CBT if they activate their accounts on the website.
The job system of Ragnarok Online 2: Legend of the Second is heavily influenced by its predecessor, Ragnarok Online.
In addition to the job system, there is also a newly introduced Dual-Life System in which certain characters can take upon a secondary role. These roles offer unique abilities that help in expanding the capabilities of a specific character.
Of all the classes brought back to life from the original Ragnarok Online, only the Merchant class didn't make the cut. The new Dual-Life System allows character development in a whole new light. Instead of using your Merchant to set up shops and vend, you may, with a new function, set your character as an NPC (non-playable character) while you are offline, rendering your services (sell potion's, food, etc. As a chef, craft weapons; as a blacksmith, create accessories; etc. all for a price) to active players while making some hard-earned zenny.
You can get material's for crafting by searching monster's dead bodies, going in the mineral zone where you can find ore's, stone's etc. for the weapon crafting which blacksmith can offer

In a recent interview with GRAVITY Co., Ltd. CTO Jin-soo Jun, it was revealed that the card system will indeed be making a comeback, but this time the cards will be attached to your character instead of individual items. The reason for this change is the fact that in Ragnarok Online many rare items were often overshadowed by low level items socketed with powerful cards. This made the inherent abilities in rare items a lot less relevant, and it proved to be a limiting factor when making new content.
The pet system from Ragnarok Online will also be making a comeback. You'll be able to tame monsters which will provide your character with special abilities and with intimacy have cute performances. At this time there are no plans to have pets directly assist in combat.
