Ragnarok X Next Generation (ROX) has been updated, and the theme is racing. You won’t get to ride expensive cars; you’ll use your existing mount instead. The only downside is that some players have an unfair advantage over others in the mini-game because the movement speed of their mount and the movement speed effect still carried over into to the game. As for the rewards, remember the bee costume on novice coin exchange shop? That’s what you’ll get in this event and there is another variant that they added for it.
- Every day, claim the free ticket from the daily check in, as well as the world chat message “Race to Win Mount” to get a total of 2 free tickets.
- Aside from 2 free tickets per day, you need to spent for at least 26,500 Crystals to purchase 5 tickets per day to get a title that has no additional attribute called “Marathon Warrior Title”. And you need to buy one additional ticket on the last day that is cost 12,500 Crystals.
- Race Ranking is not fair for everyone, those who has 6 speed mount and card with movement speed will have a lot of advantages.
- Winning the race will allow you to get 10 Music Box Medal and 10,000 Zeny. 2nd place and below will only get 5 Music Box Medal.
How to win the Race
Although it’s not fair for those who have 6 speed mount, you may still have chance to win by using the Honey Party mount. This mount has a periodic acceleration skill that randomly speeds up for a short period of time, giving it more speed than normal. You can get it free daily for 1 hour use.
You could also beat other players by taking advantage of the invert controls effect. Though this technique is only applicable for those who are using Emulators, you also need to use the mouse for the regular movement. To use this technique, go to keyboard mapping of your favorite emulator, and grab a directional movement controls, then invert the WASD controls (Up is S, Down is W, Left is D and Right is A). This way, when you are in inverted, you can quickly use the keyboard control to move like normal, then when the invert skill is gone – you can go back to mouse controls.
If you win the first place, you will receive 10 Music Box Medals and if you are in the second place or below, you receive 5 Music Box Medals.
Every day, there are 2 free Ragna GP Ticket, with this, you can earn up to 280 Music Box Medals – if you always win the race. If you’re unlucky, there’s a minimum of 140 Music Box Medals for the 14-day duration of this event.
How many Ragna GP Ticket you can get per Day
For those who do not want to spend their Crystals on the Ragna Grand Prix, they can receive up to 2 tickets per day by completing quests in the game. The first one is you can get it from claiming the daily rewards found on Ragna GP menu, the other one is typing “Race to Win Mount” in the world chat. The event is 14 days long, so you can get up to 28 Ragna GP Tickets without spending a single crystal. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to get the “Marathon Warrior” title that requires 99 races to complete using free tickets. However, it’s not necessary anyway and has no additional attribute.
If you want to buy a ticket with Crystal, you can do so by paying more to get more runs. Initially, tickets cost around 1,000 Crystals but they can only be purchased in batches of one and can go up to 25,000 Crystal apiece. The following are the ticket prices available per day:
|1st Buy||1,000 Crystal||1|
|2nd Buy||3,000 Crystal||1|
|3rd Buy||5,000 Crystal||1|
|4th Buy||7,500 Crystal||1|
|5th Buy||10,000 Crystal||1|
|6th Buy||12,500 Crystal||1|
|7th Buy||15,000 Crystal||1|
|8th Buy||17,500 Crystal||1|
|9th Buy||20,000 Crystal||1|
|10th Buy||25,000 Crystal||999|
To get the title “Marathon Warrior,” which has no attribute, you need to spend 26,500 Crystals or 5 tickets per day in order to reach 99 races. For 14 days, that is 371,000 Crystals or 70 tickets. Adding the 28 tickets you get for free, that is 98. As for the remaining 1 ticket, you need buy it at a cost of 12,500 Crystal. All in all, that is 383,500 Crystals that you need to spent to get the unworthy title.

Chances of getting Music Box Medal from Mobs
You can also get Music Box Medal from the monsters by turning on Odin Blessings. The Chances for getting the Music Box Medal depends on the sizes, but as per Odin it is equal to all mobs.
|Large Mobs||0.018% Chances|
(18 chances out of 1,000 mobs)
|Medium Mobs||0.012% Chances|
(12 chances out of 1,000 mobs)
|Small Mobs||0.006% Chances|
(6 chances out of 1,000 mobs)
The chances for this event is no longer per monsters, instead they are now using direct body sizes condition. I think the game developer already figure out the problem with modified monsters like Dark Frame, Penomena, Kobold Archer, Punk and Sting whose their sizes are different compared to the original version in Taiwan leading to inconsistent reward.
|Hi-Fi Buzz||1 x Sugar Buzz Headgear|
32 x Honeybee Medal
|Bee PLAYER||1 x Sugar Buzz Clothing|
48 x Honeybee Medal
|Honey Party||1 x Buzzing Honeypot|
1 x Mount Medal
|Sugar Buzz Clothing||100 x Music Box Medal|
|Sugar Buzz Headgear||100 x Music Box Medal|
|Buzzing Honeypot||200 x Music Box Medal|

The event for this month is not appealing, because the mini-game itself is not fair for everyone. You need to cash out some money to get the new costumes (though old costumes is achievable through free quests) and the mats giftbox that is supposed for character progress are worthless. It is better to sell the medal you collected from the mobs to Exchange Center to get Crystals and if you have enough bound medals, redeem the giftbox or the sugar costumes and mount.
The total amount of Music Box Medal you can get are the following, this is without spending any Crystals:
|14-Day Event||Music Box Medal||Music Box Medal|
|Racing Event||140 Music Box Medal|
(If 2nd and below)
|280 Music Box Medal|
(If 1st Place)
|Dash Quests||84 Music Box Medal||84 Music Box Medal|
|Total||224 Music Box Medal||364 Music Box Medal|
