Splash! Yes, that’s the first thing that will pop into your mind when you hear the word Baphomet Card. This January 9, 2008 one of the original bosses of Ragnarok Online will be invading Valkyrie and Valhalla. As stated in the announcement in Philippine Ragnarok Online site phasing out of Moonlight Flower and Pharaoh Boss card and the inclusion of Baphomet Boss card with a price ranging from 800 – 1,200 php in the Armory of Gods will be done on the same date. There will also be a random Baphomet and Baphomet Jr. summonings across all servers starting January 9, 2008.
Baphomet cards are best used for Thief class, Swordsman class, and Archer class with high dex. Since critical and other skills don’t stack with it. Why high dex? Because it has a -10 penalty to hit. Having a splash attack will let you kill several monsters/players just by hitting a single target. Haha! Like killing 2 birds with one stone!
Another boss card added to the Armory of Gods, another reason to lose the sense of hunting. In time, Valkyrie and Valhalla will be considered servers for the rich. Business as usual
The name Baphomet can be traced back to the end of the Crusades, when the medieval order of the Knights Templar was suppressed by King Philip IV of France. On Friday, October 13, 1307, King Philip had many French Templars simultaneously arrested, and then tortured for confessions. The name Baphomet came up in several of these confessions, in reference to an idol of some type that the Templars were said to have been worshipping. The description of the object changed from confession to confession. Some Templars denied any knowledge of it. Others, under torture, described it as being either a severed head, a cat, or a head with three faces.
