Been away for almost 2 years.
It was actually a relief to be away from Maplestory. I didn’t have to keep worrying about time commitments from leveling to boss schedules, trying to make money through selling items and spending money on @Cash upgrades. I managed to focus more on spending time with my family, university, my other hobbies, work, travelling the world and friends.
There’s so much on Maplestory now. I swear my brain actually felt tired after reading everything up in the span on a few days. There’s a crap ton of Quests that gives Medals to do now, Events, new Jobs, different game Mechanics, amazing and super fun and lengthy Storylines.
When I came back, I created a Night Walker. I was kind of tired of being a melee as I am by nature more suitable to be a ranged, a fast paced player (Bowmaster, Dual Blade). The thing I enjoyed the most was Friendstory.
This was where all our favourite Cygnus masters, NPCs and Bosses (Hilla & Magnus) acted as normal maplers in a different dimension. Even Cassandra was there. It was SUPER fun and I enjoyed it most. I highly recommend everyone to experience this. It was awesome.
I’ll just keep this short. I’m still roaming around Maple alone. Most of the friends I had before are no longer playing so if anyone’s in MSEA Aquila server, add me into your buddy list or guild! I need some socialisation. :3
Item removals (both legit and duped). No warning. Ziltch.
Mapler’s feelings? F*cking frustrated.
On top of that, there are countless of bugs still yet to be addressed. What are the developers doing? Nothing. They just spew out events hoping we would close a blind eye and they wonder why the number of Maplers have been dwindling. You screw up our content, you screw up our patches, you increase the cost of many things (because we are “efficient”), you remove many rewards that we could obtain (because we are “efficient”), you make it almost impossible for non-funded to play at all! JUST BECAUSE?! We have been deemed “too efficient” even by the Korean developers themselves. Well screw you. We should be rewarded for our efficiency, not be punished.
Enough ranting. This is why I stopped playing since my last post. So anywho… I’ve continued my Paladin and now I’m at level 140! Yay! 😀 It took me 26 levels to get my Advanced Combo basic book which made training so much easier. Also, I’ve been training at Root Abyss (last room) since level 110. The EXP is amazing although my only buffs are Mercedes’ 10% EXP link skill (level 70) and Spirit Pendant’s 30% exp (2 hours and up).
OH another thing, I’ve been reading so much on whether to use 1H or 2H weapons and I’ve decided to use 2H sword because:
- It’s cheaper than 1H swords
- Scrolls are more accessible as compared to Blunt weapons (Maces)
- Looks cool when you’re hanging on a rope (BUT it covers my cute face :/)
MSEA is currently going through a downtime phase where Maplers just hang around, doing nothing much; waiting for the new patch to come. Traffic in MSEA is low except during weekends but the channels seem to be quarterly filled – most probably from the botters. Duped items still being sold and flaunted in the FM. I need friends on Maple. Ugh. Where for art thou?
PS: I’m a female blogger. Just thought I’d throw this one out there.
So if you’re playing MSEA and in the Aquila server, buddy me: QuiverQueen.
Till next time?
I hope it’s soon.
Guess who’s back?
Kind of went on a hiatus for a year since May 2012 to sort out stuff from my life… but I’m back!
I know you’ve missed me and I know I’ve probably lost a number of readers, but hopefully, something might incline you to come visit me again. 😀
Here are a few things I’m going to touch-up on in the coming week:
- Training Guide – making is concise and relate more current to what I’ve been doing lately
- Revamping Blog look – more clean and crisp (maybe)
- Update more on general things in MSEA – events, tips, tricks?
So I’ve moved from D/E/I to Aquila due to my friends leaving the game one by one and I’ve joined another friend of mine in Aquila. Let me tell you and trust me when I say, starting from scratch is no joke. Its tough!
