The Beginner’s Guide to Ragnarok Odyssey

Ragnarok Odyssey for the PlayStation Vita is great. Its Monster Hunter styled gameplay will fill in the wait until Capcom gets round to releasing the real thing quite nicely. One problem though, it’s only available in Japan. So to help importers (like myself) who have either bought the game or are thinking of doing so, I’ve created this handy Beginner’s Guide to Ragnarok Odyssey. 

In here you’ll find the basics on questing, shops, item drops, status effects and a handy list of combos for the Sword Master character class. It also has some lovely character artwork, check it out!

*UPDATE: I’ve updated the PDF guide to v1.1 now. No major changes, just some changes to the text and addressing some inaccuracies in v1.0. If you have feedback then get in touch. Issuu link is also now updated.

  1. Thank you so much for this. I currently try to kearn some basic Japanese but my skills are still very low. So this guide will help me to grasp the basics of this game and this got me another little kick I needed to finally import the game. Thanks again!

  3. Thank you for posting this. I do not speak or read Japanese currently, but love the looks of this game. This will be my first import game and I am very much looking foreward to using your guide to help me learn the basics. Keep up the great work!
    Thanks again,

  4. Just a note: The winged slime with the halo in your room lets you retrieve DLC equipment and game goods found via NEAR (it’s obvious which option is which since the lower one has NEAR on it). None of these items will appear in your game even if you’ve purchased (DLC)/found (NEAR) them until you select the corresponding option when speaking with the slime.

    The “heightened state” that can be activated when the tension gauge is full is called Dáinsleif. You’ve pretty much nailed everything except for one major point: your HP gradually decreases while in Dáinsleif, but all your attacks steal HP from enemies. In other words, you’ll have to keep attacking to not die. Also, AP is unlimited while in Dáinsleif.

    Basic Commands: I’m pretty sure Block is R + Triangle. If you ever get around to adding the other classes into the guide, you should make a note that only Sword Warrior, Hammersmith and Priest can Block.

    Combos: The Finishers actually have names (they’re based on skills from Ragnarok Online). According to the JP wiki they are (your names on the left, actual names on the right)…
    Cross Combo – Holy Cross
    Launcher Juggle Combo – Two-handed Quicken
    Bowling Combo – Bowling Bash
    Four Hit Combo Spear – Brandish Spear

    There are also aerial versions of the attacks; the order just reverses; Holy Cross becomes Triangle x4 + Circle instead of Triangle + Circle x4, and so on.

    Also, you might want to update the guide a little since Online play is now available.

    • Oops, seems I was reading the first version of your guide. Disregard the part of my previous comment regarding Dáinsleif.

      • Thanks for the feedback!

        I’d love to update the guide further, unfortunately I’m struggling to find the time to do so. Perhaps when the game comes out in English I’ll do some more work on it.
