Discussion Board Developer Comments (May 4, 2022)


The discussion board topic of “opinions about reorganizing the official homepage guides for new and returning players” has ended and the developers have shared their thoughts.

Just a quick note because I think it might be a bit unclear and people have misunderstood before: only the blurb at the beginning is written by the developers. All of the top 10 opinions, supporting comments, and opposing comments are summarized from all of the things that players have posted. 

Hello. This is MapleStory.

We would like to thank all the players who actively participated in the discussions on the topic of ‘opinions about reorganizing the official homepage guides for new and returning players’ from March 24, 2022 to April 25, 2022.

During this discussion, we have once again realized that we have not provided enough homepage guides that players need for smoother gameplay.

As a result of carefully checking the opinions sent to us by players through the discussion board, we think that the current homepage guides lack practical information that can be used in-game, and even the explanations themselves were complicated which did not really help players. In particular, we found that many players felt discomfort due to the insufficient information for character growth and guides for individual jobs. The development team deeply sympathizes with this and we promise to reorganize the homepage guides by actively using the valuable opinions sent by players. In addition, as mentioned in the [2022 Maple Live Talk’s Homepage Guide section], we are developing a related system which will provide appropriate homepage guides in situations where they are needed. The specific reorganization details and schedule will be announced at a later date.

We would like to thank the players once again for continuing to provide their opinions of MapleStory, and we will do our best to ensure that there are no inconveniences when playing the game in the future. 

<Top 10 Opinions>

Opinions about reorganizing the official homepage guides for new and returning players
[Go to Page]

Please make an Equipment Encyclopedia.

A request to make an Equipment Encyclopedia where you can easily find the equipment of a certain level or area.

  • Supporting:
    • We need an encylopedia of all items, not just equipment.
    • We need the information of what monsters drop those items as well.
  • Opposing:
    • Concerns that it could be added as a collection-type encyclopedia content which gives specific stats when you collect items.

Please make a lock for ropes and ladders.

A suggestion to add a feature where you can turn climbing on ropes/ladders off to prevent situations where you can’t use certain skills in locations with ropes/ladders.

  • Supporting:
    • We hope that this will be improved since the flow of hunting is often interrupted by ropes/ladders.
  • Opposing:

Add Monster Park areas after level 240… please.

A request to add maps after Monster Park Arcana.

  • Supporting:
    • We hope that Monster Park will be continuously updated as new areas are released.
  • Opposing:

Improvement plan related to hunting maps ((Runes, Fritto, Mileage, etc.)

A request for improvements like certain Rune effects, Bounty Hunter portals, expanding the number of Mileage Bundles you can hold, and duration of Union experience coupons.

  • Supporting:
    • A request to improve it so that Pollo and Fritto portals can be distinguished from each other.
    • A request to improve the effects of the Rune of Rays, Rune of Treasures, and Rune of Giants.
  • Opposing:
    • Opinions that certain low-level users might need the Rune of Treasures, so it would be better to keep its current effects.

Theme Dungeon: (Old) MapleStory

A request to add a new theme dungeon where you can remember MapleStory before the Big Bang patch.

  • Supporting:
    • Opinions that it would be nice to experience past MapleStory in the form of an anniversary event.
    • A request to add a new server where you can remember the past.
  • Opposing:

We need a wiki format + straightforward guide (with reference materials).

We need a guide that only provides essential information in a concise format to make it easy for users to understand.

  • Supporting:
    • We need a guide that can help new and returning users play without discomfort.
  • Opposing:

Please make theme dungeons for level 60~100.

A request to add new theme dungeons for level 60~100 where it’s hard to level up.

  • Supporting:
    • We hope that you can add a variety of theme dungeons to make it easy to level up to level 200.
    • We hope that you can add theme dungeons that use towns like Orbis, Ariant, and Magatia.
  • Opposing:
    • Opinions that it’s not hard to level up in the level 60~100 range so theme dungeons are unnecessary.

It would be nice if videos were included in job introductions.

A request to add introduction videos that include a job’s concept and effects on the creation screen to help players choose a job.

  • Supporting:
    • We hope that you can improve it so that when choosing a job, you can try out that job’s skills.
  • Opposing:

Suggestion to add a ‘Favourites’ tab in Meisterville professions.

A request to alleviate the profession crafting cooldowns.

  • Supporting: 
    • We hope you can make Fatigue shared within the world then remove the crafting cooldowns.
  • Opposing:
    • Opinions that the in-game economy might crash if crafting cooldowns were removed and Fatigue was alleviated, so a more careful approach is needed.

Cross Hunter Coin Shop improvements.

A request to add and change the Coin Shop items.

  • Supporting:
  • Opposing:

    Equipment Encyclopedia! Nexon, please! GMS used to have the Crusader Codex with monster drop tables. That was such a useful feature and they got rid of it when Nexon updated the Familiar system.

    For Runes of Treasures(Riches) and Giants(Might), all they really need to do is make it so they only spawn in areas under Lv210 or maybe even lower. They’re useful for new characters but become worse as you progress further. Level limits would solve that.

    Dude letting people try out a class AT LV 200 WITH 5th JOB SKILLS would be so handy for players picking out a main. So many classes really only feel complete at 5th job, but it’s such a pain needing to get there just to find out if you really like a job or not.

    Please make it so that 99% of items dont arbitrarily expire after 2-4 weeks for no reason. There’s no reason. This isn’t to save space in a server database either because most of the items STAY existing, and if you click them, they go “lol this is expired” then it disappears

      Korea never had pottable badges to begin with. They don’t care about exclusive content from other services so they’re not going to address it.
