Traveling on foot in Ragnarok Online 2 is a very slow process because the areas are fairly large. For example, it would probably take me a few minutes to run from the Newbie Area to the gates of Prontera. I used the term "probably" because I've never timed it but I'm pretty sure that it'll take me a while to get there.
Besides, I'll rather spend those few minutes bashing monsters for experience points than wasting it on something like timing a run to Prontera. LOL!
Fortunately, Ragnarok Online 2 has a mount system that will allow me to buy a mount and ride it. Obviously, riding a mount will make traveling across Midgard faster as suppose to traveling on foot. So, the question now is, how do I get a mount in Ragnarok Online 2?
Getting a mount in Ragnarok Online 2 is very easy. All I have to do is buy one from the Item Shop with real money. Yes, various mounts are sold in the Item Shop but I'll need real money to buy them. Unfortunately, I have no plans of spending real money on this game because I'm supposedly not allowed to play it.
Remember, Asiasoft's Ragnarok Online 2 SEA is for players in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam only. I'm playing the game from a country not mentioned above and that means the game can block me anytime. So, in my case, spending money on this game is not an advisable idea.
The good news is, I still got a mount for free and, to get it, I had to reach Level 15 and buy it from an NPC in Prontera. The mount is a Peco-Peco and riding it increased my traveling speed a bit. It's not very fast but it's faster than running on foot. Also, I just love the Peco-Peco because it kinda reminds me of the Chocobo in Final Fantasy.
Again, this is how I got a Peco-Peco Mount in Ragnarok Online 2:
- First, I leveled my character to 15.
- I then went to Prontera and bought it from an NPC.
