        Are you sure? The CD currently on GMS is 10, which is what you have for the original V update too.Nowhere can I find that it was 12. I think that either they had a typo when they typed it, or the value you have is wrong.

    ummm sorry i dont understand the golden apple concept really well, so if u buy like the apple slices then each time u open it u get an item. but like the chances of getting the new items above are slim or ? like what are the golden apples supposed to give u when u click them?

    • Anonymous
      December 26, 2016 at 9:18 am

      Golden apples are comparable to the gachapon system in GMS. You basically buy them, and then use them to get a random item and a apple slice which you collect multiples of to redeem for an additional prize. The slices are like red cube fragments.

      I suppose it’s closer to philosopher books than gachapon, but gachapon’s the easier comaprison.

    This is so stupid. Why the heck would they nerf nightlords? 20% bonus exp and drop rate isnt event that much!!! They probably would nerf showdown even more to like 1% bonus exp and drop. Please nexon please… It’s gonna be harder for us to farm nodes and other droppable items.
