I know there is a Reboot server and a Standard server; but, I am not sure which would be better? When people say this game became p2w now, how much money are we talking about? Now that I am older with a stable job - I might not mind spending some money. But if we are talking a lot of money, then maybe I would enjoy the Reboot servers more?

I also don't know how the class system works anymore, and how bad the economy is(I always feel like it's been bad, so this is standard stuff now?) I am downloading the game now; any tips or helpful guides/knowledge would be appreciated!

I am trying to recover my old account to see if anything would be worth something (but I am assuming my equips and scrolls will be dated..)

Thanks~

PS. everyone has a flash jump??

+1 About the helpful guide after 5 years you were'nt playing, I'd recommed watching some videos on youtube (bossing, training at new areas, 5th job, new jobs) from the past year. Unfortunately writing a wall of text would hurt both of us

Start all over again, you probably have nothing valuable to recover your old account for.
But don't go to reboot! Choose between Scania or Windia (I promise to be your friend if you go with Windia). Reboot might be friendly to new players but you'll understand soon enough that you've made a mistake.

As far as I can recall, all jobs have double jump now except for the majority of mages.

@gingakuman: thief doesn't have a vertical jump, as oppose to many other classes out there, which makes him even lesser superior (wtf can you say "lesser"?).
Mobility isn't really a factor anymore when you consider playing a thief. They ARE fast attackers, but my archers have a much greater mobility.

P.S: Welcome back! Don't listen to people who are about to tell you this game is sht and that you shouldn't download it. This game IS sht sometimes but you should totally do.

Well nexon realeased a lot of features that made this game less p2w( but i wont lie to you, the game IS STILL P2W), for example nowadays with time, patience and friends u can get to 2m range without spending a single dollar, but for getting passed a certain range ud need either nx or buy nx with mesos for perfecting with cubes every single item.
The game is much easier and more friendlier now than years ago where the range gap was tremendously high in my opinion, 2 years ago i was stuck in a certain range but nowadays little by little i manage to increase my range and get stronguer with no real money invested at all.
The only real problem i find is that there is way too many lag, way too many disconecting issues, way too many bugs and glitches and way too many hackers. But for the rest is fine =P

Some time and $1000-$2500 I'd say, depending on the events.

+1 @derkion: True, but I wasn't exaggerating. I was considering more godly equipment and funding, which I figured he would inevitably want. He could do a lot with 2m-2m range, but it does have its limits in bossing and training. Having a more godly range and luxury equipment and nx is more comfortable.

@wellness: hi! Thanks for an honest reply. I do not want to spend more than maybe...200.00 tops! I had already spent over 3k in my previous years and now I have nothing to show for it cause the game has changed so much lool RIP ME.

I might just do Reboot...
