Ragnarok M: Eternal Love – the current mobile game that is making moms and girlfriends freak out. Admit it: you’re addicted to it. If not, you know someone who is. Whether it’s you or someone you know, here are things that happen in the game that can actually improve your life in real life… as long as you apply them, anyway. Read on.
10 Things You Do in Ragnarok M that You Should Also Do in Real Life
10. Be patient.

How many times did you walk around that ship trying to find that Ghostring? Try to exhibit that much patience when trying to get somewhere whilst stuck in traffic or whilst lost, and your life will be much better… or at least much calmer.
9. Ask for help.
When you need a Party in Ragnarok M, it’s so easy to just click on random strangers’ names with hopes that they’ll adopt you for a few minutes. If all else fails, you can pester your fellow Ragnarok M-playing friends and tell them to get online and onto your server to help you out. But do you do this in real life situations? If you can’t get something done, don’t be afraid to ask for help, be it from friends, colleagues, or even strangers who might know more about what you’re trying to get done than you do.
8. Leave when it’s no longer benefitting you.

Stuck in a Party that isn’t really doing much for your growth? Isn’t it amazing how easy it is to just leave that Party when it’s no longer doing you any good? Don’t you wish you could do that in real life? Well, you actually can – and you should. Stuck with friends who are constantly bringing you down? In a toxic relationship? JUST. LEAVE.
7. Choose your job wisely.
Before you started the game, how many people tried to convince you that you’d make a great Wizard someday just because they didn’t have a Wizard in their crew yet? Did you listen? Probably not. Don’t base your career decisions on other people. And on that note, don’t base your decisions on appearances, recommendations, or descriptions, either. Do your research and choose a job that suits your passion and your skills best.
6. Know that mistakes aren’t the end of the world.

There will always be an opportunity to start over again. In Ragnarok M, you might allot points to the wrong skills or stats, but that’s okay because you will be given the chance to reset them. It’s much like in life. You might invest too much in one relationship or one course or one career, but you shouldn’t be afraid to start over with something or someone new if things aren’t working out.
5. Be on time.
How many times did you roam around Prontera South Gate hoping to be the first to kill that Smokie before anyone else does? If you’re one or two minutes late, chances are that Smokie will be dead and you’ll lose your chance of getting a Raccoon Leaf out of it. As such, you probably wait there earlier than its appearance. If you can be as time-conscious in real life as you are in Ragnarok M, the term ‘Filipino time’ would most probably cease to exist.
4. If you don’t use it anymore, sell it.
In Ragnarok M, this comes almost naturally because your bag ends up getting full and you will want to sell the stuff you never use or don’t need. Let’s take that lesson into our lives and learn to sell or give away the clothes and items at home that we no longer use or need.
3. Pahinga pahinga din. (Rest.)

Ragnarok M does this smart thing where you don’t gain as much experience points or loot if you’ve been playing for too long. Basically, it tells you to stop playing and rest your damn eyes/fingers/mind. In other words, it reminds us to know when to stop and take a break for a while.

2. Take photos everywhere.
Ragnarok M isn’t even a real place and yet there you are, taking photos of monsters and places to fill your Adventure Guide with. Do the same in real life. Capture memories to look back on. You won’t regret it.
1. Work smarter, not harder.
It might be fun to walk from one end of the map to another or from one town to whichever town you need to get to the first few levels. But let’s face it: it gets tiring and it’s a waste of time. So, if there are ways to make things easier for you (Fly Wings, Butterfly Wings, Teleport Services), take it and go for it. The same goes with real life. Work smarter, not harder.
