The Reward System is one of TalonRO's most interesting features. It is a system that provides a whole host of unique goods and services to enhance your gameplay experience! While most servers make their special features available only to donors (and thus giving them a distinct advantage over non-donors), TalonRO's approach is balanced through the system of Talon Coins, which can be earned in a variety of ways. Talon Coins can buy you some truly wonderful and unique items. However, the very best items in the game - the Super Quest Items (SQI) - cannot be purchased through Talon Coins. This guide will walk you through several features: what Talon Coins are; how you can earn them; and what you can buy with them.

Talon Coins - What Are They?


Here at TalonRO, our economy is driven by a certain special reward item in addition to zeny: the Talon Coin. It's a form of currency that can be exchanged for special account services, removing cards from items, or even almost any item or card of your choice! The full list of available items and services for purchase can be found here.

These coins can be traded, vended, exchanged, whatever you like! Want an MVP card, but don't want to compete for literally months of sleepless nights camping a spawn? Not a problem! Tired of being a girl, and want to see what the male persuasion has to offer? Talon Coins can help you there, too!

The main NPC to handle services regarding the Reward System is the Reward Guru, who can be found inside the portal at Prontera 163,168. For items, use the cash shop (available in any town) by clicking the cash shop icon in the top right corner (if you cannot see this icon, use the /cashshop command).

You can use it to exchange Talon Cash for Talon Coins, to use several services such as Rollbacks, Namechanges or to buy a reward item of your choice.These services are also discussed in the "What You Can Buy" section.


Earning Talon Coins

The real beauty of the Talon Coin economy is that you can earn them through a variety of methods. Earning Talon Coins (TC) can be done by playing minigames, participating in one of TalonRO's many timed events, or through a donation to the server. To start, we'll cover how you can earn TC just by playing on TalonRO!


Talon Cash

Here at TalonRO, we reward you just for playing the game! ...Well, almost. Across Rune-Midgard, we've put a special spin on a variety of minigames, and made them accessible to players new and old. Instead of their usual rewards, though, you earn Talon Cash. Some NPC's will still trade these Talon Cash for the minigame's usual rewards, but there's also one more use for these points - you can exchange your Talon Cash for Talon Coins! The Reward Guru NPC will allow you to trade in your accumulated Talon Cash for Talon Coins. The exchange rate changes a bit, but we'll discuss that later! This NPC can be found inside the portal at Prontera 163,168.

You can earn Talon Cash through a variety of means. Sometimes Talon Cash will be offered through a special event or promotion, but most of the time you can earn Talon Cash through several venues!

TamTam's Gift

Every month, a new region in Midgard is chosen to be the recipient of TamTam's Gift: a special blessing from our lovable mascot who will allow monsters in the region a chance. Each month, a set of maps will be defined as the region which has received Tam Tam’s Gift. When TamTam's gift is in effect on a map, all monsters will provide a chance to drop Bronze Coins and Talon Cash Tickets! Furthermore, experience rewards are doubled! What are you waiting for?


While minigames and normal mobs are fun and all, you'll also want a challenge at times. Most of the MVPs drop Talon Cash Tickets when killing them. All field MvPs except Lord of Death reward 4 Talon Cash Ticket, which gives 4 Talon Cash upon usage.

Monster Races


Here's another popular, simple minigame -- betting on monster races! If you can guess the winner(s) of a singles or doubles race, you'll win some Talon Cash! Best of all, many, many people can bet on races, so you probably only have to wait until the next race to have a shot at earning a Talon Cash jackpot! Unfortunately, to deter multiclienting and cheating the odds, only one person per IP address can enter per race. If we discover you are still finding ways to squeeze multiple accounts into these races at one time, there will be dire consequences! So please remember: only one of your characters per race! Hugel Minigames can be found at Hugel 63,73.

Anything else?

This is just our initial offering -- more custom quests in the future may offer Talon Cash, as well as any other little minigames we might think up... or any updates we might implement!

Daily Cash Betty


Daily Cash Betty, located inside the portal at Prontera 163,168, gives daily item collection missions (resets at 0:00 server time) for Talon Cash! When you complete her mission, you will receive 40 Talon Cash. She will ask for 10 to 20 of one of the following items: (please update the table if you know more items she asks for)

Barren Trunk
Bear's Footskin
Black Bear Skin
Blue Hair
Decayed Nail
Dry Sand
Earthworm Peeling
Elder Pixie's Moustache
Fig Leaf
Fish Tail
Horrendous Hair
Huge Leaf
Insect Feeler
Little Evil Horn
Maneater Root
Mantis Scythe
Mud Lump
Oil Paper
Orc Claw
Peco Peco Feather
Piece of Bamboo
Raccoon Leaf
Round Shell
Solid Shell
Sticky Mucus
Stone Heart
Strange Steel Piece
Thin Trunk
Tough Scalelike Stem
Wing of Red Bat
Worn-out Prison Uniform
Zenorc's Fang

Timed Events

Apart from the minigames that are open 24/7, there are also events/minigames that open at certain times only. Quite often these give better rewards than the other minigames, however you can't use them whenever you want! You can find the Minigame Girl in every town who can tell you exactly what each game is about and when it opens. Let's take a look at what we have. All minigames are only open for 30 minutes after their start time, except for GMC and Nightmare's Rift.



This is probably one of the simplest of ways to earn Talon Cash. Head on over to the Comodo Carnival (Warp Girl -> Comodo Carnival) to play Bingo! Sign up with Maisie Erenes at Comodo 154,314. You will be warped automatically to the bingo room when it's your turn to play, but be sure to not AFK, or you will NOT be chosen to play! And just like in real life bingo, if you AFK while you are playing, you will NOT be able to mark those numbers off your card! The winner will be rewarded with 120 Talon Cash! It's a bit of a gamble, but everyone can play, be they Novices or High Wizards! Win by making 5 lines and typing bingo into the box that pops up.

Start Times


The times listed above are in server time (GMT+1).

Fun fact, the earliest possible bingo happens at 16 numbers!

Poring Catch


There are 150 different porings on the field. However! Only one of them is real, you have to find him. If you are able to find the real one, you'll win 2 Talon Cash! Be aware though, killing the wrong one can cause some unexpected effects! Equipment cannot be used in this game.

Poring Catch opens every 4 hours for a duration of 1 hour.

GM Challenge


The GM Challenge is a party-based event (5 players minimum) that opens at certain times. It's called the GM Challenge because they are designed after the GMs of TalonRO. This basically means that the GMs on the server designed a challenge to their liking with monsters and MVPs that he/she likes or dislikes!

The decision of which GM Challenge to pick is done completely random every time it opens. One time it could be the GM Boreas Challenge while an other time it could be the GM Shiris Challenge.

You will fight through 3 floors of strong monsters and MVPs. After that, you will face a custom MVP that gives good EXP and drops nice items. Also, each player will be rewarded with 100 Talon Cash and a unique GM token at the end of the challenge. These unique GM tokens can be gathered to claim a preferred GMC Box (Classic, Cerulean, Saffron, and Crimson).

The GM Challenge opens at the following times:

Day Time slot 1 Time slot 2 Time slot 3 Time slot 4
Monday 02:00-04:00 12:00-14:00 16:00-18:00
Tuesday 04:00-06:00 14:00-16:00 18:00-20:00
Wednesday 06:00-08:00 16:00-18:00 20:00-22:00
Thursday 08:00-10:00 18:00-20:00
Friday 00:00-22:00 11:00-13:00 15:00-17:00 20:00-22:00
Saturday 02:00-04:00 12:00-14:00 18:00-20:00
Sunday 00:00-02:00 11:00-13:00 14:00-16:00

Poring Rally


In Poring Rally you will find lots of unusual Poring-type monsters. Every type is worth a certain amount of points. The person who gets most points (at least 100) by killing them after the time runs out, wins! Most points are obtained when at least 3 players are on the map. With less players, you will not get the max amount of Talon Cash. This game is quite reliant on attack speed, so prepare before you join it. You can find it in Brasilis or by talking to the Minigame Girl. Equipment cannot be used in this game.

Poring Rally opens every 4 hours for a duration of 1 hour.

Haunted House

Hauntedhouse iduna.png

There is a house with a bit of an ugly past behind it. Go to the Comodo Carnival (Warp Girl -> Comodo Carnival) to visit this eerie locale...rumor has it a murder took place inside. Your task? Find out who did it, along with where, how, and even when! If you're familiar with a certain board game, this scenario might seem a little familiar!

Four people are required to start a round of this minigame. Once you are inside, your task is to search for clues that will tell you details of the murder. Each distinct room of the house (not including the hallways and chapel) has four objects that may contain clues. Once you know all four details of the murder, talk to the Judge located in the statue in the chapel on the second floor. If you are correct, you win! If not, you will be whisked away with nothing!

But be careful! Any time you enter a room with objects, you have a chance of being whisked away by a vengeful spirit and losing your chance to guess that round! It's highly unlikely that you will be able to visit enough rooms to find all the clues before being whisked away, and even more unlikely that you will finish it all in time. For this reason, you should coordinate with the other people in the house and trade information about the clues you find to minimize the risk of getting whisked away!

However, it's not that simple...the first person to solve the mystery at the Judge will receive a hefty amount of Talon Cash. The remaining players will not receive a reward, much like Bingo. With this in mind, you may want to think carefully about when and with whom you share your clues! Don't spend too long debating or keeping mum, though, because you have only ten minutes to solve each mystery!

The first four rooms entered are guaranteed not to whisk anyone away (this applies to any of the 14 rooms; once a fifth room has been entered, the risk of being whisked away applies).

Start Times


The times listed above are in server time (GMT+1).

Devil's Claw


Lady Luxuria awaits those brave enough to challenge the Devil's Claw! Lady Luxuria has brought this classic Halloween game to the Comodo Carnival! The goal is simple; be the last man, woman, or child standing! Avoid the fiery claws of death by running around the map. Don't get tricked by the decoy claws! Homunculus and mercenaries are disabled. And if you thought you could simply wait in the corner for everyone else to die, there is AFK detection in place. Keep those legs moving! Requires a minimum of 6 players to play.

Every additional player increases the Talon Cash reward (for those lazy to do the calculations, that's 20 Talon Cash at 10 players, 60 Talon Cash at 20 players, and 120 Talon Cash at 30 players):

Number of Players Talon Cash Added Per Player
1 - 10 +2
11-20 +4
21 - 30 +6

Start Times


Other Methods for Obtaining Talon Coins


On the TalonRO Forums, we have a biweekly screenshot contest and various other regular events, judged by the GM staff. The top 5 winners will receive Talon Coins directly! From time to time we may hold additional contests, too, so keep an eye out for them!


For special holidays, current events, or just because we want to spice up the game for everyone, TalonRO will often throw an event or two! These events may involve Talon Cash, Talon Coins, or items popularly purchased with Talon Coins. Pay attention to the official events on the forums and your patcher messages!


If, after all these options, you still don't see a method you like, or still don't have enough, we do provide Talon Coins as thanks for any donation -- at the rate of 1 Talon Coin per US$1. More information can be found on our official donation page. Please remember that selling Talon Coins for out-of-game currency (real life money) is strictly prohibited and will result in a ban. The full list of server rules can be found here.

The Rental System

Apart from more permanent rewards such as Talon Cash and Talon Coins, we also offer Rental items. These are items with a temporary lifespan, namely 1 week. They are generally more powerful than normal items, so make good use of them while you have them!


Bronze Coins

You obtain these items by finding Bronze Coins, which can be gathered through various ways. Once you have enough coins, you can talk to the Rental Master in Prontera. He can be found next to the Reward Guru. Here you can rent several powerful items (weapons, armor, garments, headgears, etc.) for a period of 1 week. These items are more powerful than your usual items and can be found in several categories: 200 Coins, 125 Coins, 75 Coins and 50 Coins. All of them except the 200 Coins category can be used in Vanilla WoE/PvP as well.

The Rental Master can rent you various items for a period of one week, plus an Old Orange Box as explained above. This NPC can be found at Prontera 160,193.

TamTam's Gift

Each month, a set of maps will be defined as the region which has received Tam Tam’s Gift. When TamTam's gift is in effect on a map, all monsters will provide a chance to drop Bronze and Talon Cash!

Eden Quests

You can access the Eden Group from NPCs in various Towns.

Based on your level, Eden quests will reward you with varying amounts of EXP, Bronze Coins and Novice Potions.

Level Rewards
1 to 12 5 BC & 20 Novice Potions
13 to 26 5 BC & 40 Novice Potions
27 to 40 5 BC
41 to 90 10 BC

99 25 BC
Trans 30 BC

Reward Items and Services

When you have acquired some Talon Cash, you can spend them on something you like. Here are the available items/services you may request. All items and cards can be acquired by opening the cash shop on any town map, and all services are available at the Reward Guru.

The entire Reward List can be found by clicking here.

Questions? Feel free to ask about them in the forums and one of the GM staff or a member of the community will be happy to assist you!
