The Day of Despair ends the story of Ragnarok Online and predates the story of Ragnarok Online II, occurring 300 years prior. It is the day when Freyja and her Valkyries unleashed death and destruction upon the world of Midgard.
Most notable during this time is the death of the Normans Hohenheim, Demeter, Beriel, and Vulcan, who have all been reborn as Guardians for the Life Jobs of Alchemist, Chef, Artisan, and Blacksmith respectively.
