Ragnarok Homunculus System Introduction
Homunculus are creatures that are exclusive for the Alchemist class. The homunculus aids and boost the alchemist during battles. You can even levelup your alchemist character through your Homunculus alone but make sure not to forget to feed them. In order to get a Homunculus, alchemists must complete the Bioethics quest to acquire the Bioethics skills. Upon completion of the Bioethics quest, you need to have an embryo to summon a Homunculus. The homunculus respawn is in random, so if you are opting for a certain homunculus, you need a number of embryo in order to get what you want.
Ragnarok Homunculus Embryo
You could purchase the ingredients for the embryo inside the alchemist guild (alde_alche 35, 179). Be sure you have the Prepare Potion skill so you could brew the embryo. The success rate also depends on the alchemists dex and luck

The Four Types of Ragnarok Homunculus
There are four types of homunculus, each are unique and has their own strengths and weaknesses.
Skills: Caprice, Instruction Change, Chaotic Blessings
Evolution Skill: Bio Explosion
Homunculus Type: Magical- Offensive, Formless, Neutral
The vanilmirth focuses more on Int stat, therefore all of its attack skill is magical. This Vanilmirth is a good aid during pvp and can kill a player with a single firebolt. The downside however is because it is using magic, it consumes a lot of sp. So Vanilmirth alchemist owners must pitch blue potion to it every once in a while.
Skills: Moonlight, Fleeting Move, Accelerated Flight
Evolution Skill: SBR44
Homunculus Type: Physical- Offensive, Dodge/High ASPD, Brute, Neutral
The filir has the attribute of the agi stat – high attack speed and high dodge rate. Filir can even help the Biochemist during War of Emperium by breaking the emperium. The disadvantage of the Filir homunculus is its low hp.
Skills: Healing Hands, Urgent Escape, Brain Surgery
Evolution Skill: Mental Charge
Homunculus Type: Restoration- Supportive, Demi-Human, Neutral
Most of the biochemist opt for the Lif because aside from its nice looking sprite, its supportive skills works wonders. The mostly used skill is the Urgent Escape that works like the Speed Potion, only free and longer.
Skills: Castling, Amistr Bulwark, Adamantium Skin
Evolution Skill: Bloodlust
Homunculus Type: Physical- Defensive, Tank, Brute, Neutral
The Amistr has a huge hp that can serve as tanks for leveling biochemist. But this homunculus is pretty much not useful in war of emperium because his skill Castling is deactivated.
Ragnarok Homunculus Evolution
Homunculus are like Pokemon , they can evolve to the next level granted that you have reached the loyal intimacy level. You need a stone of sage in order for your homunculus to evolve. Just double click the stone of sage and your homunculus are set to go. When the homunculus evolve, it will obtain bonus status points, increased HP and SP, and a new sprite.
Feed your Homunculus
Unlike the falcons of the hunter class, you need to feed your homunculus or else they’ll die or their intimacy level would be effected. Do not overfeed (hunger > 75) nor underfeed (hunger < 11) your homunculus. Between 25-50 is the safest hunger level to feed your homunculus. The following are the list of homunculus feeds.
- Vanilmirt – Scell
- Filir – Garlet
- Lif – Pet Food
- Amistr – Zargon
Ragnarok Homunculus Sytem Command
- Alt + Single Right Click: Target monster
- Alt + Double Right Click: Attack monster
- Alt + T: Standby, idle/passive mode, cancels all commands and returns to master
- Alt + Right Click Ground: Move to location (15 tile range)
- Alt + R: Information window
Ragnarok Homunculus Intimacy
- The player dying, the Homunculus dying, or the Homunculus vaporizing does not affect intimacy.
- Using ultimate skills lowers Homunculus intimacy.
- Not feeding it (hunger < 11) or overfeeding homunculus (hunger > 75) lowers intimacy as well
Ragnarok Homunculus Death
If the homunculus die, you can use the skill Call Homunculus or Homunculus Resurrection to bring it back to life.
Ragnarok Homunculus Leveling
The homunculus levels up in terms of job experience of monsters. So you better choose a leveling spot with monsters that have high base experience. If the homunculus kills the monster alone, the homunculus gets full job exp and the full base experience goes with the player. Perfect isn’t it? You can now to the “afk” leveling which is very famous on Free to Play servers.
How to make your Homunculus loyal
It takes a while for your Homunculus to be loyal. You have to reach an intimacy of 900+ and the homunculus intimacy starts at 20 upon initial casting. The trick is, you hav to feed it when hunger reaches 11-25 and i think you have to feed it over 800 times more or less to be loyal
Ragnarok Homunculus Intimacy Level
0-3 = Hate with a Passion
4-10 = Hate
11-100 = Awkward
101-250 = Shy
251-750 = Neutral
751-910 = Cordial
911-1000 = Loyal
RO Homunculus Role in WOE
Unfortunately, homunculus are more of a liability than an asset if you decide to call your Homunculus by your side always while the siege is on going. First, they kill the plants summoned by the Alchemist class. Then, before you know it your Homunculus just died with one Storm Gust. The only useful in WOE is Lif’s supportive skill of Urgent Escape.
