We are happy to have such a great community and players that have supported the server for over a full year, so we just like to extend our gratitude and respect for those who have continued to make the server better! 🥳. Our last update introduced new ways to earn donation ubers by using zenies on a dynamic algorithm, this was not the main focus of the last update but we have had great response to the update by our players and we are happy to look into other ways we can create player focused approaches. This update introduces new monster costumes on their monster counterparts which you will have to hunt down to get @Mitsune put a huge amount of effort to create this system that brings another dynamic to monster hunting. Kiki has now been updated to now automatically daily take a random five items from a pool of over 300+ items and assign a random pricing so that players can have new ways of obtaining costumes they care about, or snagging a rare and vending which now supports @whosells and @buyitems btw~
We are looking for new GM's to join our amazing team on XileRetro to help push us further, get in touch on discord if interested!!
You can now use this command to open the catalogue interface and scout out vends and their selling items.
You can use this command to now create a buying store, sit back and relax while others sell their items to you.

Hey friend so I know I'm getting back to your topic really late and that's honestly my biggest shortcoming. I'll plan to reply when I get time and when I get time? I do basically anything but what I had planned to do. GG!
Anyways, I'm just letting you know that a plan with MVPs has been in motion for just over a week for the next updates we wanted to push out.
You are not the first new player to have this issue with MVPs and higher tier PvM content.
We hear you, and we wanna make that newbie veteran gap smaller. All three of us admins are old school xRO players and previously worked on that server in some capacity in its early and current days. Mostly developing and administration! So we're super well versed in how the game used to be, I myself played there in that Golden Era just before LDS set was introduced so my affinity and love for that time is right where we are now in the content we've matched.
As per things that could be better laid out on the wiki, most if not all items removed from the game are listed. At the top of each section of removals it says anything renewal based is automatically not ingame. We did our very best to disable all renewal content and that most definitely includes renewal items.
Skill modification list on wiki is something on our backlog because well, every skill has a modification... I cannot begin to describe the massive headache I feel coming on at just the thought of making a list for that but it is something I've been trying to work up sanity to do. It's just tedious af LOL. No promises but I'll try to start one~
Anyways-- I want to thank you for the constructive criticism and we will do our best to meet a lot of them and do better. We understand you've likely already left or will be as this kind of server as is, is not for everyone. Thank you and have fun. 💜
This update focuses on zeny and economy changes, we wanted to help how the server functions around zeny and the coins you can convert them into, we also want to open up new doors for non-donators to obtain donation gears with zeny!

hope you will find this suggestions. In-Game it was really hard to find anyone (GM or Support). I tried it out for 3 days... Only 1 Event GM was online but all time AFK.
I am a really old xRO player. Not the PK that is running, i mean the really old "Original". I just saw your server and it seems to be the same one, hype! I was so happy and also invited my brother to play again. His first meaning was "uhhh, is it the real one and are there any restrictions?". This was the first, why i tried to get support ingame for 3 days. So i just looked at your WiKi. But you will not see all changes here, grr. Just a handful changes / removings / adds are listed here. Also there is NOTHING about the skill nerfs. You should do.
We have played yesterday and lvled together up to 255/120. I made a new Assassin (DildoSwag69) and my Brother always plays a Sage/Professor (Catmuh). The lvling was good and smooth but it feels like all other monsters are highly buffed and stats changed. After all, we reached lvl 255, we wanted to hunt some "low MVP" for reaching our first LKH. LKH´s were one of the best headgear at xRO. I remember that everyone hunted the "fang of garm" because this was the only thing that were really hard to get. On this server, the MVPs are so strong, it is not possible to kill them without to die. I went to Maya today morning to try it again... if you will killed in 10 seconds then you will not play longer.
One more point was, i mentioned above, many items like cards were removed from this server. And the first thing my brother made was searching for example for an "imp Card". After 10 minutes he say: "uhh, drop rate 5 percent?!". And i told him, yes of course. Then i have a look to @mi and found out that the card was removed. My brother then checked all other "normal" cards he played at xRO. And... ALL of these cards were removed, ALL! My brother immediately said that this is total shit, without improving yourself you cannot beat that "buffed" MVPs anymore. And i think he is right. I can understund to the strong MVP that you will beat them in a group or try it several times. But not for the "small" ones like Maya, GTB or Mistress. After all, my brother finally decided to leave again. Last action was to kill Garm and he gifted me the "fang of garm" like in the good old times.
I was really happy to find a retro xRO - but... its not Retro anymore. Its just any customized OldSchool Server too.
I would really appreciate to play again - or better - on the original xRO. Much things are missing here that really needs to be imrpoved before you can call it xRO Retro.
Finally find a summary of list which i would suggest to you:
MVP Room is totally missing
unbuff all "standard" MVPs
More GM / In-Game Support is needed (not beginner friendly atm)
Show in your Wiki which skills have a nerf (and may how much!)
Show in your Wiki which Items totally has been removed (not all shown now!)
Show in your Wiki which Cards totally has been removed or changed
disable the "mace" event or let it start with one player (i always run into the warp portal and always the game was stopped due to no players)
implement at least all normal cards! (if not possible due to OP i would suggest to edit them. Example Imp card: if the effect is 20% greater damage with firebolt - just do it to 10%...)
At the end my Brother not wants to play here and i only came to this server to play with him like in the good old times. Unfortunately you did so much changes that its not possible to play like the "original" one.
I would be really happy if you would make all the changes so i can take my brother back to play. But... i dont think that you will do that at all and its fine. If you will do the changes or make a really Retro xRO i wish you to contact me directly via Email.
It was a great short time at your server - i liked the treasure box event.
Stay Healthy... I wish you all the best.
Beendeluxe aka DildoSwag69
Please remember to contact me, if you want to improve the server to its original xRO (retro). Me and my brother could help you with details and also will play again if it goes original finally.
