    Max, I am Impulse from Maple-News.com, and with the absence of Spadow, I am told from several sources that you are probably one of a handful of people who do this, if you could contact me at mprp12@live.com we can talk about the future of KMS news to the rest of the Maple Community.

I am not one to post comments on a blog, but you are doing a great job, keep up the good work pal, I’ll be coming here for information now, as it gives me a lot of information again, I want to thank you, and goodluck on your blog. ❤

    Hey Max, I play GMS and I’m going to be storing up some scrolls for Mercedes. I was wondering if their weapons are considered 2handed or 1handed(since maples been having tons of events with general scrolls for 1h/2h not specifics)
    Naturally I thought they’d be 2 handed but some people argue that it it’s 1handed(since it only takes up 1 slot in the equip inventory).
    So can you please clear that up for me?

    Hey Max, I have 2 questions: one about kMS, one about blog design.

    1. What happens when you use a cash shop cover on a dual bowgun. Does it say “all weapoons but guns, knucklers, and dual bowguns” or does it show two of the item. Or are there specific ones for dual bowguns.

    2. how do you get only a picture of an orange mushroom in your banner? I wanna put some BannedStory/Went my Way characters in my banner, and I don’t know what the size is either. Would I like make the characters in a program to the right side and then put that on top of the banner and make it PNG? or is there a “insert image into banner” option.

    Please help and thanks for answering! Love your blog, and can’t wait for the Demon Slayer storyline post.

    • Max
      August 13, 2011 at 7:19 pm

      Aha, okay 🙂

      I think right now the only Cash item that covers dual bowguns is the Sachiel/Janus weapons which just came out, and I’m not sure what they look like, sorry :S

      • August 14, 2011 at 4:02 pm

        Okey doke! Luckily, I’m pretty sure I like the appearance of the dual bowguns (all of them, especially the level 40, 70, and 120 one), so I’ll be fine.

        Question 2: How much is the set that gives the Mercedes hairpiece and cape, and is it permanent? I wanna get it for my Mercedes and it’ll be my main and part of my look.

        Ah, so the black and white wings weren’t out? I wondered why I saw them in GMS and not in the actual game, unless they took it out for a while…

        • Max
          August 15, 2011 at 1:10 am

    Now that GMS is start getting close getting Jump patch, there has been a question about Dark Knight new 4th job skill, Dark Imaple. The question is usually revolve around the speed of the this new skill on difference weapon speed. Is it possible to have somebody youtube a Dark Knight running through roughly 2mins for each of the following scenario, it doesn’t have to attack anything, so people can actually count the number of attack per minute.
    1. fast or normal speed weapon doing crusher
    2. slow speed weapon doing crusher
    3. fast or normal speed weapon doing Dark Impale
    4. slow speed weapon doing Dark Impale

    Thank you very much if you can actually help.

    Hi Max, I realy love ur blog and apreciate ur work.
    I have for u 2 questions about ur opinion:
    1) Do u think or know if there is chance that there wil be more game revamp like bigbang and the game will return to the BBB? I mean that they will cancel the the EXP curve and more thing ruined the game?

    2)What do u like more? The old game before the first curve or the modern game after all bigbang and those updates?

    3)Is nexon realy working on a game maplestroty 2 that will still be 2D ?

    Plz answer what do u think even if u dont know

    • Max
      December 25, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    max, do you think you can do me a favor and make a final update page in regards to the thief and pirate revamps. there is alot of confusion as what certain skills do, and this only concerns shadower, but a major question that keeps popping up in gms is how do killing points work and what skills do you use to obtain the points.

      January 25, 2012 at 9:16 pm

      Lotus is not the name of the 5th hero. First of all, that’s Orca (Orchid)’s twin’s name, who is already a member of the Black Wings and featured in the Phantom storyline. Secondly, Lotus is called Su in kMS, and gMS will not change the name of an entire job.

      I don’t think he’ll ever be defeated, haha. And definitely not, even if we defeat him, it will not return to pre Big Bang. It will most likely be a raid you can do more than once anyways, like … every other boss. 😛

    • Max
      January 28, 2012 at 12:27 pm

      I doubt it, the game’s already very easy as it is. What I’d like is a quest revamp though, to make them actually give good experience 😮

    I don’t know if you’re aware of this, but according to people, the Empress boss has been glitched in GMS ever since it’s release (you get kicked upon killing it, whether you are a hacker or not)
    so my questions are.. was it also occurring in KMS? And if so, has it been fixed?

    thanks =[

    • Max
      February 24, 2012 at 4:33 pm

      It is also glitched in kMS I believe, as if not, we’d have tons of cheap Empress weapons (like JMS).

        Me again
        A guy just told me that the Empress glitch was resolved come the DS or Ark patch in KMS. I trust your word on this matter more than I’d trust his, since you play there, but then again you didn’t sound too sure about it
        I’ll really appreciate it if you could you verify this with your fellow Maplers and let me know?

        Thanks again

    Hm.. I had a question about when they nerfed Phantom, because I’m noticing something in GMS right now, and figured the original thread was too old for this so..
    I was wondering, did they add something to the effect of not being able to assign two skills at the same time that have a similar ability.. like say, damage reductions such as magic guard and power guard? The game won’t let me put those two together now.. but they didn’t have any details about skill changes or etc. in GMS’ patches, so.. yeah~
    Thank you in advance nwn

      February 8, 2013 at 10:58 am

      I guess this is a tricky thing to figure out, hm? x3; I was thinking about maining my Phantom but now if this is the case and my plan is ruined.. I may just go with something else.
      So I guess I’m saying the priority of answering this question has been lowered~

    I want to start off by saying that your blog is amazing! It has helped me prepare for several updates in GMS and has me constantly excited about what’s coming.
    On another note, I would like to put a link to your blog in my own website (that I just started up yesterday), so anyone who visits my site can know what reference(s) I used for some information. I would also like to put links in posts to videos with skill demos (since I don’t know how to record my screen effectively and without cost), so some recommendations to a few Youtube channels to ask (or free screen recorders) would help a lot.

    Hi Max, I am a long term player of Maplestory. The game is my childhood. Unfortunately, GMS has broke down significantly after the Big Bang patch. Therefore, I am thinking about playing KMS, something that is worth my time and investment. If you could, I have a few questions I would like to ask before I start learning Korean to play the game.
    1. Are you Korean who learnt the language as a child or you self-taught Korean to yourself? If it is the 2nd option, how long did it take you?.
    2. How is the community over there? ex: More friendly than toxic? etc.
    3. How difficult is it to fund yourself? ex: Making mesos.
    4. Is it possible for a non-korean player to purchase NX with a foreign credit card?. Thank you for your time and wonderful blog. I hope you receive your response too 🙂 !

    • Max
      May 9, 2017 at 1:52 pm

      1. I’m not Korean and I’m not fluent in it either haha. If you’ve played MS before it’s pretty simple to pick up on what to do in KMS but it does help to be able to read it since a lot of text is just english words written in Korean.
      2. If you’re not Korean you probably won’t be interacting with any Korean players. The foreigner community has shrunk a lot over the past few years but we have a guild called Century that anyone can join.
      3. Depends on you honestly. You can buy some NX to make it fast or just level up/boss/sell drops in the Auction House to make money. With additional options, you can sell high level equipment/boss equipment with good stats for some money.
      4. Yep, you can buy NX from this site: https://cn-usa.com/?cmd=buy&loc=222059. However, your account has to be verified to charge Nexon Cash.

    Hello Max, I’m from THMS. The Thailand players want you to translate your content into Thai language too. Can you make it for them?

    Hi Max! I recently started blogging about maplestory as well! My niche is going to be maplestory private servers. Would it be possible to hit you up for a guest post? My website is https://mapleprivateservers.com if you want to check it out.

    Hi Max,

    I came across your website today and was impressed. Your blog has so many great resources and information about MapleStory. I thought your videos were really well done as well!

    As you might already know, Q4 holds the highest earnings potential due to increased Holiday digital advertising spend.

    Typical ad partners are not prepared to take advantage of higher ad spend because they continue serving the same ad placements for ALL users. Ezoic uses AI to provide a customized ad layout (including location and size) for EACH user to your site as the seasons change.

    By partnering with Ezoic, a Google Certified Publishing Partner, you can improve your ad earnings on orangemushroom.net by 50% or more this year.

    Do you have 15 minutes within the next week for a quick chat? I’d love to learn more about your site and see if Ezoic can help. I’m also happy to send more info via email – which would you prefer?

    Cheers from San Diego,
    Alyson Courtney
    Website Optimization Specialist, Ezoic
