Inside MAPLE: 2021 SUMMER UPDATE & KMST ver. 1.2.122 – Lots of Improvements

They finally released the teaser video for the Summer update! Although it’s less of a teaser and more of a showcase of a bunch of QoL features and requested changes. Almost everything mentioned in the video was added to the KMST patch that came out today, so I’ll be covering them below. There’s a couple things that will be in later patches so I’ll mention them as well.

The Summer update, titled Maple LIVE, will take place over three patches:

  • June 17
  • July 15 (New job)
  • August 12 (New boss)

The new job is going to be an Anima mage! It is not on the test server yet, but they said they’ll release another video on June 24, so I think they’ll show it off then.

Guild Reorganization

Flag Race Reorganization

Guild Content Progress Tracking Tab

Flag Race’s entry method has been changed.

  • Every even hour at XX:30, you can enter for 2 minutes.
  • When it is time, you can enter through the button in the guild UI’s [Guild Content] tab.

Flag Race’s course selection method has been changed.

  • The courses will now be swapped once per week, every Monday at 12:00 AM, in the order of Midday Snowfield → Sunset Snowfield → Midnight Snowfield.

Flag Race Course Results

Flag Race’s point measuring and ranking selection methods have been changed.

  • For each course, your individual points will be registered based on your completion time. The guild ranking points will be calculated by adding up all the individual scores.
  • Your individual points will reflect only the highest points you received from Monday at 12:00 AM ~ Sunday at 11:59 PM.

Flag Race’s courses have been modified.

Flag Race Skills

Flag Race-only skills have been modified.

  • The skills have been changed so that they can be used without having to acquire the items, but cooldowns will now be applied.
  • You can press Tab to switch the hotkeys from ASDF to QWER.
  • Equip Snowshoes: You will not slip on ice when used. The effect can be turned on or off by reusing the skill. Cooldown: 3 seconds.
  • High Jump: Activate a high jump once when used. Cooldown: 40 seconds.
  • Rush: Quickly move a short distance when used. Cooldown: 40 seconds.
  • Run Together!: Up to 6 characters around you (including yourself) move faster when used. Cooldown: 60 seconds.
  • Cannon Fire: This skill has been removed.

Flag Star

Flag Race related items have been added.

Midday's Snowfield (Practice)

Flag Race practice courses have been added.

  • You can enter the practice waiting room through the button in the guild UI’s [Guild Content] tab.
  • You can enter the practice courses in a party of 1~6 people.
  • The party leader can select the practice course and you can play with the same conditions as a real race.

If you leave a guild or are kicked, your points will be deducted from the guild’s Flag Race Ranking Points and your character’s Flag Race Ranking Points will be reset.

The first time you complete Flag Race per week, you will be given 1,000 Guild Contribution.

You cannot enter when rankings are being settled, every Sunday from 11:00 PM to 12:01 AM.

※ The Flag Race Ranking Points from June 14, 2021 at 12:00 AM to before the maintenance on June 17, 2021 will be reset after the client patch on June 17, 2021. We thank users for their understanding. ※

Developer Notes:

Flag Race is competitive content for testing control and guild unity. In this reorganization, we tried to improve inconveniences such as the fixed participation times and the absence of practice mode while maintaining the identity of the existing Flag Race as much as possible.  Also, we wanted to minimize the burden of participation/management by changing it to something you can participate in only once per week.

Sharenian’s Underground Culvert Reorganization

Sharenian Path to the Altar

Sharenian’s Underground Culvert’s entry method has been changed.

  • You can move to the Underground Culvert Entrance through the button in the guild UI’s [Guild Content] tab or by talking to the NPC Daedal in the Guild HQ.
  • You can enter the dungeon by talking to the NPC Daedal in the Entrance map.
  • You can only enter Sharenian’s Underground Culvert by yourself, and there is no limit on the number of times you can challenge it.

Sharenian’s Underground Culvert’s progression method has been changed.

  • When you enter the dungeon, you will be moved to the Path to the Altar map. All of your buffs will be removed, and you will have 2 minutes of preparation time.
  • After finishing your preparations, you can talk to the NPC Daedal to challenge Arcanus.
  • The fight with Arcanus will last for 2 minutes.

Sharenian’s Demon Arcanus has been changed as follows.

  • The maximum number of stages has been expanded from 5 to 6. The higher the stage, the higher its HP and defense will be.
  • Some of Arcanus’ attacks will no longer knockback and stun but they have been modified to deal more damage.
  • In Stage 6, the damage dealt to Arcanus will be displayed in units of 10 trillion through the health UI.

Sharenian's Underground Culvert Points

Sharenian’s Underground Culvert’s Ranking Points distribution method has been changed.

  • At the end of the time limit, your individual points will be registered based on your acquired points. The Guild Ranking Points will be calculated by adding up all the individual points.

  • Your individual points will reflect only the highest points you received from Monday at 12:00 AM ~ Sunday at 11:59 PM.

If you leave a guild or are kicked, your points will be deducted from the guild’s Sharenian’s Underground Culvert Ranking Points and your character’s Sharenian’s Underground Culvert Ranking Points will be reset.

The first time you register your individual record per week, you will be given 1,000 Guild Contribution.

You cannot enter when rankings are being settled, every Sunday from 11:00 PM to 12:01 AM.

※ The Sharenian’s Underground Culvert Ranking Points from June 14, 2021 at 12:00 AM to before the maintenance on June 17, 2021 will be reset after the client patch on June 17, 2021. We thank users for their understanding. ※

Developer Notes:

Sharenian’s Underground Culvert is competitive content for guild members’ strength and unity. In this reorganization, we tried to improve inconveniences while maintaining the identity of the existing Sharenian’s Underground Culvert as much as possible. We have modified the overall game progression method to remove the inconvenience of having to gather as many guild members as possible at the same time, and to reduce the burden of participation, we have reduced the play time and modified it so that you can participate whenever you want.

Weekly Guild Missions

Guild Content Progress Tracking Tab

Weekly guild missions have been added. You can acquire Weekly Guild Mission Points by acquiring Hunting Points and Boss Points.

  • You can acquire 1 Hunting Point per monster killed within your level range.
  • You can accumulate up to 25,000 Hunting Points per week per character.
  • You can acquire a certain number of Boss Points per weekly boss defeated.
  • You can accumulate up to 400 Boss Points per week per character.
  • You can acquire 1 Weekly Mission Point per 5,000 Hunting Points or 80 Boss Points.
  • Each guild member can accumulate up to 5 Weekly Mission Points, and each guild can accumulate up to 200 Points.

You can acquire Noblesse skill points based on your guild’s combined Weekly Mission Points.

  • After the settlement every week on Monday at 12:00 AM, you will acquire 1 Noblesse skill point per 20 Weekly Mission Points, up to a maximum of 10 Noblesse skill points.

If you leave a guild or are kicked, your points will be deducted from the guild’s Weekly Guild Mission Points and your character’s Hunting Points, Boss Points, and Weekly Guild Mission Points will be reset.

Noblesse Skill Points Reorganization

The Noblesse skill points provided based on Flag Race rankings have been changed.

Flag Race Noblesse Skill Points

The Noblesse skill points provided based on Sharenian’s Underground Culvert rankings have been changed.

Sharenian's Underground Culvert Noblesse Skill Points

The Noblesse skill points provided based on Weekly Guild Mission Points are as follows.

Weekly Guild Mission Points Noblesse Skill Points

Developer Notes:

Noblesse Skills are a core reward provided by guild content and could only be acquired through competition which caused several problems. We wanted to alleviate the competition required to acquire them and improve the accessibility of Noblesse Skills overall by adding weekly guild missions and adjusting the Noblesse skill points provided.

Guild Point System Improvements

You can now continue to accumulate Contribution, regardless of the guild level.

When a guild member leaves or is kicked, the Honor EXP value will no longer be decreased.

Developer Notes:

Contribution was used as an indicator for continuous guild activity and a way to judge a user’s trustworthiness. However, it was difficult to use this feature since guilds that reached level 30 could no longer accumulate Contribution. We have improved this by changing it so that you can continue to earn Contribution regardless of your guild’s level.

Guild Usage Convenience Improvements

Guild members’ last login date information has been expanded from the existing maximum of 7 days to 365 days.

Position Management

You can now add and manage up to 10 guild member positions.

  • The Master, Jr. Master, and Guild Member 1~3 positions provided by default cannot be deleted.
  • You can delete a position after first changing all guild members with that position to another one.

Bulk Role Management

You can now change multiple guild members’ positions at the same time.

  • After selecting the guild members you want to change the positions of, you can change them all at once.
  • Guild administrators can only change the positions of guild members with lower positions than them.

You can now check guild content related participation information in the Guild UI.

  • In the Progress Tracking section, you can check the current guild content achievements and your participation status.
  • In the Guild Member Participation Tracking section, you can check all guild members’ guild content acquired points.
  • Guild administrators can change guild members’ positions directly from this section.

The Guild Mark registration method has been changed.

  • You can now apply PNG format images as well.
  • A real-size Guild Mark preview will now be provided.
  • The Guild Mark re-registration cooldown has been decreased to 10 minutes.

You can now level up Noblesse skills multiple times at once.

You can now use Noblesse skills by registering them to shortcut keys.

When modifying the Guild Introduction, it will now modify the existing text instead of writing a new one.

Guild Member Login Alert

You can now change the setting if you would like to see guild members logging in notification or not.

You can now move to the Guild HQ through Quick Move in each town.

You can now write a self-introduction when applying to join a guild.

Guild Content Related Achievements

The following achievements have been added.

Reboot World Reorganization

Reboot Passive

The Reboot passive’s damage boost effect has been changed to a final damage boost effect. There is a fixed final damage boost for specific level ranges.

  • Level 1~99: 30%
  • Level 100~149: 40%
  • Level 150~199: 50%
  • Level 200~249: 60%
  • Level 250~299: 65%
  • Level 300 or higher: 70%

Certain monsters’ HP have been decreased.

  • Level 110 or higher regular map monsters’ HP have been decreased.
    • Level 110-119: 2% reduction
    • Level 120-129: 4% reduction
    • Level 130-139: 6% reduction
    • Level 140-159: 8% reduction
    • Level 160-169: 10% reduction
    • Level 170-300: 12% reduction
  • Arcane Force map monsters’ HP have been decreased.
    • Level 200-209: 13% reduction
    • Level 210-219: 14% reduction
    • Level 220-229: 12% reduction
    • Level 230-300: 18% reduction
  • Authentic Force map monsters’ HP have been decreased.
    • Level 260-300: 18% reduction

Developer Notes:

We have changed the damage % effect of the Reboot Passive to final damage % so that it would have the same efficiency for all classes regardless of their base damage %. In addition, we have adjusted the HP of regular monsters so that the difficulty of hunting is not increased.

The damage boost based on level difference has been adjusted. When a character attacks a lower-level monster, their damage will be increased up to 120%.

  • Level difference of 0: 100% damage applied
  • Level difference of 1: 102% damage applied
  • Level difference of 2: 104% damage applied
  • Level difference of 3: 106% damage applied
  • Level difference of 4: 108% damage applied
  • Level difference of 5: 110% damage applied
  • Level difference of 6: 112% damage applied
  • Level difference of 7: 114% damage applied
  • Level difference of 8: 116% damage applied
  • Level difference of 9: 118% damage applied
  • Level difference of 10 or higher: 120% damage applied

Alicia's Ring Box (Rank 10)

Alicia’s Ring Boxes have been changed so that rings which cannot be used by each class will no longer appear.

  • The Level Puff Rings and Weapon Puff Rings given will only match the main stat of the job.
  • The Limit Ring, Mana Cut Ring, Crisis – HM Ring, and Crisis – M Ring will not be given to classes that do not use MP.

Developer Notes:

Due to the characteristic of Reboot World that doesn’t allow trading, we want to alleviate the experience that can occur when you acquire equipment that you can’t use. Going forward, we plan to gradually improve the reward experience for things which don’t match Reboot World’s characteristic.

Reboot Gift Box Stage 4

The Reboot Gift Box has been changed.

  • The Reboot Gift Box’s level required and reward items have been changed.
  • After the update, you can use the Reboot Gift Box to acquire the changed rewards.
  • The expiration period of the items has been increased from 14 days to 30 days.

Reboot Gift Box

Developer Notes:

There was a problem where the levels that the Reboot Gift Box could be opened and the recommended usage levels for the reward items were different, so they were not usable at the levels they could be opened and would have to be used afterwards which did not actually help in the growth process. We will provide items at appropriate levels and certain required items in Reboot World have been added.

When you create a character, you will receive a Mysterious Secret Box which can be used for 30 days to receive a Snail pet.

Link Skill Reorganization

Link Skill Transfer Limit

The daily Link Skill transfer limit has been increased from 2 to 4. You can also pay an additional cost to transfer them up to 10 times.

Link Skill Transfer

Developer Notes:

The daily Link Skill transfer limit has been increased to 4 to let you take advantage of Link Skills a little more freely. Inevitably, there may be cases where you require more than the base number of transfers, so we prepared an additional option that lets you transfer Link Skills by paying mesos.

Arcane River Daily Quest Improvements

Esfera Research Order Experience

When you complete Arcane River area daily quests, the experience rewards will now be given all at once. If you complete all the daily quests in each area and complete the following quests, you will receive the completion experience once per day per world.

  • [Daily Quest] Road of Vanishing Investigation (373m experience)
  • [Daily Quest] Chew Chew Island Best Dish (910m experience)

  • [Daily Quest] Esfera Research Order (2.489b experience)

Jean

Morass daily quests have been improved.

  • Morass daily quests’ completion NPCs have been unified to Jean in Trueffet Square.
  • The ‘[Daily Quest] Stabilize the Closed Area’ quest’s entry method has been changed from a portal in the Closed Area to talking to Jean in Trueffet Square.
  • The ‘[Daily Quest] Lab Defense’ quest’s entry method has been changed from talking to the Researcher in the Lab to talking to Jean in Trueffet Square.
  • The Experiment’s By-Products item will now be dropped by both Experiment’s By-Product A and Experiment’s By-Product B.
  • The Memory Remnants item will now be dropped by the ‘Thralled~’ monsters.
  • The ‘[Daily Quest] To Maintain Trueffet’ has been deleted.
  • The ‘[Daily Quest] Defeat 200 Experiment’s By-Products A’ has been added.

Developer Notes:

We wanted to improve the character growth experience from early level 200s to mid-level 200s. To reduce the difference in character growth speed based on play time, we have added experience rewards to the Arcane River area daily quests. In addition, various improvements have been made to the Morass daily quests’ inconveniences.

Monster Park Improvements

In Monster Park, certain stages have been improved and the new stage Arcana has been added.

  • The Monster Park ‘Auto Security Area’, ‘Road of Vanishing’, and ‘Dream City Lacheln’s clear experience have been increased. (180m experience for Road of Vanishing, 1.238b experience for Lacheln)
  • The ‘Mystical Forest Arcana’ stage has been added (2.241b experience). Only characters who have completed the ‘[Arcana] Forest of Restored Harmony’ can enter.

Developer Notes:

To improve the character growth experience at early to mid-level 200s, we have increased the reward experience of certain areas in Monster Park by about 20% and have added a new level 230 ‘Arcana’ stage.

Limen Area New Maps Added

New maps have been added to Limen.

  • World’s Sorrows Midpoint 4
  • End of the World 1-7
  • End of the World 2-6

The monsters that appear in these new maps have more HP than other monsters of the same level in Limen and you can acquire more experience by defeating them.

  • Powerful Ascension (Lv. 262)
  • Powerful Foreverion (Lv. 263)
  • Powerful Embrion (Lv. 264)

Developer Notes:

We want to provide a variety of hunting grounds after level 255 that can be used based on the character’s growth level. With the addition of these hunting grounds, powerful characters can acquire more experience and accelerate their growth rate until they can enter Cernium. The usage of hunting grounds will be spread out so players can enjoy a more pleasant hunting experience.

Improvements

Skills

Craftsman's Soul

The enhancement cutscene when using the Craftsman’s Soul skill has been simplified.

When Heroes and Paladins use one-handed weapons, the weapon multiplier has been increased from 1.3 to 1.34 and 1.2 to 1.24 respectively.

Developer Notes:

In the previous May update, we increased attack speeds which reduced the merit of one-handed weapons when compared to two-handed weapons. We have tried to compensate for this by reducing the damage difference by increasing the weapon multiplier.

Bishop

  • Pray Pray: Buff Freezers will now apply to this skill.
  • Peacemaker Peacemaker: The activated divine light’s number of enemies hit has been increased from 10 to 15.

Bowmaster

  • Hurricane Hurricane: This skill now passively increases Uncountable Arrows’ damage by 50%p.

Marksman

  • Bolt Rupture Bolt Rupture: Damage has been increased from 700% to 925%.
  • Dragon Pulse Dragon Pulse: Damage has been increased from 525% to 650%.

Developer Comments:

After 4th job, hunting performance has been gradually improved but the growth difficulty was still high in lower job advancements. We have tried to decrease this difficulty by increasing the damage of the main 3rd job skills.

Pathfinder

  • ultimate blast Ultimate Blast: Number of attack activations has been increased from 5 to 6.
  • Relic Unbound Relic Unbound: Relic Gauge consumed has been decreased from 350 to 250.

Viper

  • Super ChargeUltra Charge Super Charge/Ultra Charge: Attack boost when fully charged has been removed.
  • Critical Rage Critical Rage: This skill now passively increases attack by 30.
  • Guard Crush Guard Crush: This skill now passively increases attack by 30.
  • Unity of Power Unity of Power: Energy consumed has been decreased from 1500 to 1000.
  • Howling Fist Howling Fist: Energy consumed has been decreased from 1750 to 1250.

Developer Notes:

Since there is a large difference in overall damage between being fully charged or not, we tried to reduce the variation in attack by removing the feature of increasing attack when fully charged and adding it as a passive effect. We have also lowered the difficulty of energy management by reducing certain skills’ energy costs.

Mikhail

  • Sacred Cube Sacred Cube: Damage boost has been increased from 10% to 15%, duration has been decreased from 30 seconds to 25 seconds, cooldown has been decreased from 210 seconds to 180 seconds. Maximum HP boost has been changed to a passive effect.
  • Rho Aias Rho Aias: The number of defenses in stage 1/2/3 has been decreased from 16/16/21 to 9/9/12 respectively, the shield duration has been decreased from 40 seconds to 25 seconds, the cooldown has been decreased from 300 seconds to 180 seconds. The number of defenses required to increase final damage by 1% has been decreased from 2 to 1, the duration of the final damage boost has been decreased from 150 seconds to 89 seconds, the base final damage boost has been removed (at level 25).

Developer Notes:

We have changed the cooldowns and durations of certain skills to match the cooldown cycle of other skills while maintaining their overall performance.

Cygnus Knights

  • Element Soul Soul Master’s Element: Soul: This skill has been changed to an on/off skill.
  • Element Storm Wind Breaker’s Element: Storm: This skill has been changed to an on/off skill.
  • Element Darkness Night Walker’s Element: Darkness: This skill has been changed to an on/off skill.
  • Element Lightning Striker’s Element: Lightning: This skill has been changed to an on/off skill.

Flame Wizard

  • Orbital FlameOrbital Flame IIOrbital Flame IIIOrbital Flame IV Orbital Flame: This skill has been improved to be less affected by the communication status to the server.

Developer Notes:

By improving the overall logic, this skill has been changed to be less affected by communication status than before. We request your feedback on whether your experience has changed significantly from before.

Wind Breaker

  • Bow Acceleration Bow Booster: This skill has been changed to a passive skill. The skill name has been changed to Bow Acceleration. This skill now increases DEX by 20 at max level.
  • Albatross Albatross: The attack, damage, defense ignore, critical rate, status resistance, elemental resistance, and attack speed boosts have been changed to passive effects. The cape effect on/off feature has been removed.
  • Albatross Maximum Albatross Maximum: The attack, damage, defense ignore, critical rate, status resistance, elemental resistance, and attack speed boosts have been changed to passive effects and will stack with Albatross’ boosts. The total amount of stat boosts is the same as before the change.

Developer Notes:

Since the number of active buffs was high, we made changes such as making certain buffs passives or making the stats passive to reduce inconvenience.

Striker

  • Spear Lightning Chain Spear Lightning Chain: Chain attack’s damage has been increased from 750% to 1000%, lightning’s damage has been increased from 1000% to 1100%, last chain’s damage has been increased from 1200% to 1400%, giant lightning’s damage has been increased from 1450% to 1500% (at level 25).

Aran

  • Combo Ability Combo Ability: Aran’s Combo display effect can now be moved by dragging it with the mouse.

Luminous

  • Liberation Orb Liberation Orb: The active effect’s damage has been increased from 850% to 1000% (balanced) and 825% to 975% (imbalanced) (at level 25).

Battle Mage

  • Abyssal Lightning Abyssal Lightning: Maximum number of passages that can be created has been increased from 4 to 6, underworld’s lightning’s number of enemies hit has been increased from 6 to 8, duration has been increased from 35 seconds to 40 seconds. This skill now increases damage to regular monsters by 30% while active.

Wild Hunter

  • Wild Vulcan Wild Vulcan: Wild Vulcan’s grenades activated when used while riding on the Jaguar’s damage has been increased from 380% to 655%.
  • Wild Vulcan Type X Wild Vulcan Type X: Damage has been increased from 950% to 1050% (at level 25).

Xenon

  • Photon Ray Photon Ray: This skill will now aim 3 shots at a time for the initial aim.

We have adjusted this skill to be more useful when hunting by making the initial aim finish more quickly.

Illium

  • Reaction Destruction Reaction: Destruction: Damage has been increased from 360% to 400%.
  • Reaction Domination Reaction: Domination: Damage has been increased from 360% to 400%.
  • Reaction Destruction II Reaction: Destruction II: Damage has been increased from 550% to 610%.
  • Reaction Domination II Reaction: Domination II: Damage has been increased from 550% to 610%.

Developer Notes:

In the previous May update, we fixed the issue where Reaction skills would be activated immediately when cooldown resets applied to them. It was an error where the cooldown reset logic was applied differently than it did to other skills, so it had to be fixed, but the error occurred and was maintained for a long time. After it was applied to the official server, we are trying to compensate by increasing the damage of the Reaction skills themselves in proportion to the expected average reduced damage.

Bosses

The notifications of Elite Bosses appearing in other areas will no longer be displayed.

For Hard Hilla’s Life Leech pattern, monsters that are summoned during the pattern will no longer have their health leeched.

In Papulatus, when you are inflicted with Papulatus’ curse, a system message will now be displayed that shows you the duration.

In Suu phase 3, the energy orb continuous fire pattern will now end when it is defeated.

In Dusk, when the Fear status ends, the Black Flame pattern will also end.

In Seren phase 2’s sunset pattern, the 3-stage slash’s cast delay has been increased.

Developer Notes:

The sunset pattern’s 3-stage slash had a short cast delay and was difficult to avoid. We are trying to adjust its overall difficulty by increasing the cast delay by 40% so it is easier to avoid.

Items

  • The Cool Skull, Spotlight, and Cygnus effects have been changed to be outputted in all movements.
  • The Eye Light, Lightning Strike, Happy Winter Effect, and Rock Band Effect have been changed to be outputted while floating.

Monster Life

Monster Life Combination

In the Monster UI, the Combination Disabled display has been made more detailed.

    • The combination period has expired.
    • You can combine if you charge essence.
    • You do not have the monsters required to combine.
    • You have the monsters required to combine.

UI

Maple Union in Boss Maps

You can now use Union raid placement feature in bosses and Urus entry waiting maps.

The character stats – detailed stats UI’s information will now provide more detail.

  • Buff duration, item drop rate, and meso acquisition rate have been added to the detailed stats.

    • Item drop rate

Developer Notes:

Buff duration, item drop rate, and meso acquisition rate were not shown in the detailed stats so it was inconvenient having to calculate it yourself. To solve this, we have added those stats to the UI.

In addition, since it is difficult to know how many and where the stats were obtained, we added the ability to see amounts acquired from each category when hovering over them.

When exiting the game, the outputted play time will now be displayed up to the hundredth’s unit.

You can now compare the stat boost from pet equipment by clicking the mouse wheel to compare it with the various pet equipment you have equipped.

    Can you still manually swap to snowshoes during Flag Race? Or does it force you to utilize the snowshoes toggle skill?

    Thank you for the translation!

    Do you (and anyone else browsing) think that the Maple LIVE update is an abandoning of the GRANDIS pattern, or simply a delay? Seems like the update is not too well-received among the Korean audience, although I can understand if they need to delay the “D” update, assuming it contains story content. With all the stuff they’ve been doing between NEO and now, a delay isn’t a bad idea for another quality update.

    If the later parts of Maple LIVE do contain story content, such as the new boss, I’d be confused. I wish they’d commit, as the event looks really lackluster and if this is supposed to be our big story update I can’t say its very good. For example, take a look at the Maple LIVE event area and compare it to NEO Castle. The difference in effort is really apparent.

    • where's the D?
      June 10, 2021 at 9:12 pm

      It really feels like a filler patch so they can push out QOL updates. I’m hoping the boss is a side story type of thing that’ll add to the lore but won’t move the story forward.

    The new guild points mechanism is with an obvious bug: The attacker can sell a service which is to create multiple characters and send them to flag race , etc one by one!

  7. EsferaWhite
    June 10, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    To clarify, for server in China, attackers can easily create multiple characters, send them one by one to flag race, and using hacking programs to finish flag race in seconds. Only put bans to those substitute ids would not remove the flag race point off the related guild. So the guild members could abuse the mechanism at little cost.

    Thanks for bringing it up Max!
    Imo the extra damage for monsters lower level than you makes no sense. I know that in a logical way it does (you become stronger then it, so the extra damage makes sense), but in a practical way it does not. We have penalty for killing lower level monsters already, where they start to decrease the meso drop rate when you are higher level than it, so why the extra damage is not inverted?
    Would make more sense if the extra damage was higher the closer your level is to the monster, and this would make sense because we have bonus exp from being closer level to the monster.
    Feels like they give us extra damage with one hand and slap our faces with the other hand with a meso drop penalty.
