Only a few weeks have passed since
players could be married in Ragnarok Online, and they are already clamoring to
escape the bonds of matrimony. Gravity Interactive has answered the demands
of those longing for the single life by introducing divorce into the massively
multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) world.
Players are warned, that just like the real world, breaking marriage vows come
at a steep monetary and spiritual cost. Both parties must empty their pockets
and file for divorce at a combined cost of 2,500,000 Zeny (Ragnarok money), as
well as temporarily reducing their health and spell points in half.
Those feeling unattractive after getting divorced can get an extreme makeover
with a new hairstyle and even a new face by visiting the local Nifflheim hairdresser.
He/she also moonlights as an unlicensed plastic surgeon. Players willing to
risk more than just their tresses can fulfill one of their midlife crisis fantasies
by bungee jumping in the jungles of Umbala.
Divorcees who really want to hide from their ex-spouses can start all over with
a new identity and play as a Super Novice class character. This class is really
a jack-of-all-trades. Players never have to choose a specific class of skills
to specialize in.
