    A pretty big test server patch was released tonight along with a new Inside MAPLE video! The video talks about the stuff added in this patch, such as the new boss, the boss rewards reorganization, and other improvements. They also talk about their development direction for the future, and they included some stuff that will be added in the next few months and the winter update!


    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    They talked about how the new boss, the Guardian Angel Slime, has two difficulties and was designed to fit into different difficulty ranges: Normal (between Normal Demian and Easy Lucid) and Chaos (between Hard Will and Chaos Dusk). There was also some stuff about meso inflation, including a graph showing that the majority of mesos created in-game are through selling Intense Power Crystals, which is why they added a new system to combat it.

    [​IMG]

    Improvements they have planned for September include:

    • Applying the 64-Bit client
    • The Seed reorganization
    • Introducing the Probability Real Time Monitoring system

    [​IMG]

    Improvements they have planned for 2021 include:

    • Character growth experience and convenience improvements
    • Maple Guide reorganization
    • Zero creation restriction removal
    • Add the ability to show off your Achievements

    [​IMG]

    Improvements they have planned to work on at all times include:

    • Setting up a team dedicated to the story
    • Increase the supply of Rebirth Flames
    • Increasing the manpower of the team dedicated to convenience/bug improvements
    • Continuing to improve boss rewards
    • Combat meso inflation
    • Work to improve the probability experience
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    For the 2021 winter update, they split up the things they have planned into four sections:

    • Base Job Improvements
      • Improvements starting with the Adventurer jobs
      • Combat convenience improvements
      • Skill effect improvements
      • Enhancing the fun of each job’s characteristics
    • Story Content Renewal
      • Improving dialogue to match the world view and character settings

    • Boss Content Diversification
      • Add new boss difficulties (Easy Will, Normal Jin Hilla, Normal Seren)
      • Plan to continuously expand boss content
    • Character Growth and Content Usage Experience Improvements
      • Improving character growth speed

    <New Boss> Guardian Angel Slime

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Following a mysterious invitation, you arrive at Ramuramu Valley where cute slimes live. Test your strength by confronting the cute and powerful Guardian Angel Slime, who has been crowned by the God of Slimes!

    [​IMG]

    Participation Requirements:

    • Characters level 210 or higher who have completed the 5h job advancement can accept the “[Ramuramu] Who is Really, Really, Really the Cutest?” quest.
    • You can talk to the Mysterious Stone Statue at the Guardian Angel Slime’s Altar to enter.

    [​IMG]

    There are two difficulties: Normal (level 220) and Chaos (level 250). I’m not sure if there are any differences in the modes other than HP and damage as I’ve only tried Normal so far.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    When you enter, you’ll be in the Ramuramu Temple. Here you’ll see the boss as well as four different coloured gates in the corners of the maps. You can attack the Guardian Angel Slime at this point but you deal reduced damage.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Magma Slimes will spawn around the map and you can use the special skill Mascot Slime’s Help – Energy Shot to push the Magma Slimes into the gates. When a gate is covered by 3 slimes, it is closed.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    After a few minutes, the second phase will start. The Guardian Wave will start moving from the top of the map, along the platforms. You can use the Mascot Familiar’s Help – Crystal skill to install crystals that block and change the direction of the wave. The point of this phase is to lead the Guardian Wave of slimes into one of the gates that you blocked in the first phase (if you blocked all four, then you can just wait for them to enter any gate).

    [​IMG]

    If you successfully lead the Guardian Wave into one of the gates you blocked, you can return to the top of the map and attack the Guardian Angel Slime with full damage for a short period of time as it is self-bound. And then you repeat this process until it’s dead!

    [​IMG]

    The Guardian Angel Slime drops a new item, the Guardian Angel Ring (Lv. 160 ring, gives 5 all stats, 200 HP/MP, 2 attack/magic attack with 2 slots). It is part of the Boss Accessory set and is tradeable until equipped.


    Developer Notes:

    We want to provide a new goal by adding a boss, the ‘Guardian Angel Slime’ to the range where the desire to challenge new bosses was decreased because the hurdles to reach the next stage were too high.

    By adding the Guardian Angel Slime, we wanted to provide new fun by providing a mid-step boss and by breaking away from the ‘ignore mechanics and just DPS’ pattern. We expect that the newly added challenge experience will have a positive effect on players with the fun elements of games you used to enjoy in arcades.

    The main reward is a new part of the Boss Accessory set, the level 160 ‘Guardian Angel Ring’. Currently, a character can equip a total of 4 rings, so we wanted to provde more diverse ring combinations to players.


    Here’s a video of the boss!

    Boss Rewards Reorganization


    [​IMG]

    The selling prices of Intense Power Crystals will now change at regular intervals.

    • Intense Power Crystal prices for daily and weekly bosses will change every Thursday at 12:00 AM. The prices for monthly bosses will change every 1st day of the month at 12:00 AM.
    • Intense power Crystals can be sold for the prices that they had at the time they were acquired.
    • You can check the prices of currently dropped Crystals by talking to the Collector NPC and clicking the ‘Check Prices’ button.

    ※ In the test server, for function testing, the Intense Power Crystal prices will change every day at 12:00 AM, and can either increase, drop, or stay the same within 3%. Starting from August 12 at 12:00 AM, the prices will remain the same as before the patch. ※

    ※ In the official server, the Intense Power Crystal prices will change starting from August 19 at 12:00 AM for daily and weekly bosses and from September 1 at 12:00 AM for monthly bosses. ※


    Developer Notes:

    Currently, the route that creates the most amount of mesos in MapleStory is the selling of Intense Power Crystals obtained from bosses. The difficulty of growing characters to be strong enough to defeat bosses has gradually decreased while the prices of the Crystals stayed the same. As a result, it was expected that the mesos created would gradually increase and we decided that it would be difficult to properly control meso inflation. Therefore, we have applied a system where the selling prices of Intense Power Crystals changes dynamically by looking at the percentage of boss clears and difficulty indicators from a certain period of time. In order to minimize the impact on the market, the changes in Intense Power Crystal selling prices have been set to be within 3% per week.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    • Premium Accessory Scroll Voucher (untradeable, expires in 7 days, not in Reboot)
    • Premium Pet Equipment Scroll Voucher (untradeable, expires in 7 days, not in Reboot)
    • Magical Weapon Scroll Voucher (untradeable, expires in 7 days, not in Reboot)

    Bosses that drop Strange Additional Cubes will no longer drop Strange Cubes. Bosses that drop Large Boss Medals of Honor will no longer drop Boss Medals of Honor.

    ※ The type, rate, and maximum number of dropped items are different based on the boss. ※

    ※ Item drop rate increasing effects do not apply to these items. ※

    ※ The drop rates of these items are planned to be changed with updates for a certain period of time. ※

    ※ The Additional Experience 50% Coupon Voucher can be used to acquire an Additional Experience 50% Coupon which is tradeable and expires in 7 days. ※

    ※ The Premium Accessory Scroll Voucher, Premium Pet Equipment Scroll Voucher, Magical Weapon Scroll Voucher, and Accessory Scroll Voucher can be used to acquire scrolls which are tradeable and expire in 30 days. ※


    Developer Notes:

    The existing boss rewards were not provided in proportion to their difficulty, and so a reverse phenomenon occured in certain ranges. With this reorganization, various tradeable consumable items and rare crafting materials have been added to boss rewards, and you can acquire more rewards as you face higher tier bosses.

    However, if a large number of tradeable items were released at once, it could have a significant impact on the in-game economy, so the drop rate will be adjusted every update for a certain period of time. If the drop rates are changed, we will notify you through the release notes at the time of the update.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Absolabs and Arcane Shade equipment items have been changed to drop as vouchers. The following items will now be dropped instead of the previous Absolabs/Arcane Shade equipment.

    • Absolabs Armor Box (untradeable, expires in 7 days)
    • Absolabs Weapon Box (untradeable, expires in 7 days)
    • Arcane Shade Armor Box (untradeable, expires in 7 days)
    • Arcane Shade Weapon Box (untradeable, expires in 7 days)

    ※ In Reboot World, you can only select one of the items that your current character can equip. ※

    ※ Like before the update, item drop rate increasing effects do not apply to these items. ※

    The drop rate of Absolabs and Arcane Shade Equipment Boxes has been adjusted.

    • In regular worlds, the Armor Box drop rate has been increased to higher than the existing armor drop rate, and the Weapon Box drop rate has been decreased to lower than the existing weapon drop rate.
    • In Reboot World, the Armor Box drop rate has been increased to higher than the existing drop rate.
    • The drop rate of the Equipment Boxes will be higher for higher tier bosses.

    Developer Notes:

    Absolabs and Arcane Shade equipment items had a large variation in the acquisition experience based on what armor pieces and weapon types dropped. Through this reorganization, we expect that the reward experience will be equalized by changing it so that you can exchange for any equipment and supply items based on market demand.

    In addition, for the existing weapon and armor drop rates, they were not set based on value or demand, so for armor, we have changed them to drop more than before and for weapons, we have changed them to drop less than before.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The Absolabs and Arcane Shade equipment’s set effects have been changed. The Absolabs set effects have been changed as shown below.

    [​IMG]

    The Arcane Shade set effects have been changed as shown below.

    [​IMG]


    Developer Notes:

    The existing Absolabs equipment and Arcane Shade equipment’s set effects were concentrated in the 5 set, so when changing from Absolabs to Arcane Shade, you had to change a lot of them at the same time to be able to change sets without losing damage.

    With the goal of making it easier to move from Absolabs equipment to Arcane Shade equipment, the 5 set effects of Absolabs and Arcane Shade equipment have been distributed to the 2~5 set effects and the order of Arcane Shade set effects has been adjusted.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The Cursed Spellbook and Mitra’s Rage items have been improved to be dropped as vouchers. The following items will now be dropped instead of the previous Cursed Spellbooks/Mitra’s Rage.

    • Selective Cursed Spellbook Box (untradeable, expires in 7 days)
    • Selective Mitra’s Rage Box (untradeable, expires in 7 days)

    The completion requirements for the achievements when acquiring these items has been changed to acquiring the box.

    ※ In Reboot World, you can only select the Mitra’s Rage that matches your character’s job. ※

    ※ Like before the update, Reboot World’s increased boss equipment drop rate effect applies to these items. ※

    ※ Like before the update, item drop rate increasing effects do apply to these items. ※


    Developer Notes:

    The Cursed Spellbook and Mitra’s Rage items included in the Pitched Boss Accessory set had different jobs or main stats.

    Therefore, even if you acquired the items which had a very low drop rate, the reward experience was not good if you acquired one that you could not use. For Reboot World, this problem was even worse since it could not be traded. To solve these problems, we have changed Cursed Spellbooks and Mitra’s Rage to be dropped as boxes that let you choose what you want.

    [​IMG]

    The ‘Item Acquisition Permission setting’ feature has been added to the party settings.

    • You can set the item acquisition permission to ‘All’ or ‘Party Leader’ in the party UI’s party settings.
    • When set to ‘Party Leader’, only the party leader can loot items which were dropped as shared rewards.

    ※ You can check the party’s current permission setting at the bottom right of the party UI. ※

    ※ When the party’s permission setting is changed, a notification will be outputted as a system message. ※

    ※ Items dropped as individual rewards can be acquired regardless of the party setting. ※


    Developer Notes:

    When playing boss content, there were a lot of problems between players in the process of acquiring and distributing items dropped as shared rewards. We hope that adding the ability to change the setting of who can acquire items will minimize any disputes.

    In Reboot World, the selling prices of Intense Power Crystals has been changed to 5x the prices of regular worlds.

    The weekly limit of Intense Power Crystals sold to the Collector has been changed from 60 per character to 180 per world.


    Developer Notes:

    The existing 60 per character limit did not function practically as a reward acquisition limit. Since we are increasing boss rewards, we will set a new upper limit and proceed with the boss rewards reorganization. As a result of checking the accounts which recently sold Intense Power Crystals, we confirmed that only about 2.68% of them sold more than 180 per week, so we expect that most players’ experiences will not change.

    Existing boss rewards have been changed as shown below.

    • The following boss rewards have been removed.
      • 60% Chaos Scroll
      • Potential Scroll
      • Advanced Potential Scroll
      • Chaos Fragment
      • Twisted Time Essence
      • Basic Additional Potential Stamp
      • Intermediate Additional Potential Stamp
      • Advanced Additional Potential Stamp
      • Basic Soul Enchanter
      • Regular weapons and armor
      • Pet Equipment Movement Speed Scrolls
      • Pet Equipment Jump Scrolls
      • Patience Potion
      • Awakening Potion
      • Invincibility Potion
      • Experience Accumulation Potion
      • Wealth Acquisition Potion
      • Silver Potential Stamp (Reboot)
    • The following boss rewards have been changed from individual rewards to shared rewards.
      • Strange Cube
      • Rebirth Flame Level 110/120/130/140/150
      • Enhanced Soul Enchanter
    • The following boss rewards have been changed from shared rewards to individual rewards.
      • Medal of Honor
      • Boss Medal of Honor
      • Zakum’s Soul Fragment
      • Hilla’s Soul Fragment
      • Papulatus’ Soul Fragment
      • Zakum’s Arm Voucher
    • The Zakum Certificate, Papulatus Certificate, and Pianus Certificate will no longer drop.

    Developer Notes:

    For boss rewards, we want to keep the total amount of rewards as equal as possible regardless of the method of fighting the boss or the number of party members.

    Therefore, we want to keep certain rewards like Soul Fragments, equipment exchange materials, skill Core Gemstones, and cosmetic items as individual rewards and change the rest to shared rewards.

    For items that were dropped as shared rewards, if it was more appropriate to have them be individual rewards like Honor, we have changed them accordingly.

    The experience of acquiring Mileage after defeating bosses has been improved. The amount of Milage acquired has been changed based on the clear limits (daily/weekly/monthly).

    • Daily bosses: 30 Mileage
    • Weekly bosses: 200 Mileage
    • Monthly bosses: 1000 Mileage

    Together with the changes in Mileage acquired, the daily limit on Mileage that can be acquired through gameplay in Maple World has been increased from 5,000 to 10,000.

    • [Mileage] Theme Dungeon: Defeat Ravana
    • [Mileage] Theme Dungeon: Defeat Targa, Scarlion

    Here’s a video of me playing it. This dailly’s actually pretty simple and relatively fast to finish.

    After you complete the mission, you can acquire 2 Arcane Symbols: Esfera by talking to Shubert at the exit map. You can acquire up to 6 per day.


    Here’s a video of me playing it. This one is really annoying lol, you have to kill the mobs to collect Erda then shoot the gates on the right. It takes longer than the other Arcane dailies so I hope they make it a bit easier.

    Certain achievements’ names have been changed.

    New achievements have been added.

    Monsters


    [​IMG]

    In Will, when the Dimension Collapse pattern activates, if you are soloing the boss, it has been improved so that you can attack the Watching Eye in the same dimension you are in to cause the Moonlight Orbs and Black Orbs to fall.


    Developer Notes:

    In Will’s Dimension Collapse pattern, we received an inquiry about Night Lord and Shadower’s Dark Flare being installed in one dimension but it would disappear and the orbs would not fall in the other dimension. We confirmed that this issue was not a skill disappearing issue. When both Will and the Watching Eye were in Dark Flare’s range, it could only attack one enemy so it appeared to be of no use since it was hitting Will instead of the Eye.

    This wasn’t a problem with Dark Flare itself, but we determined that a pattern that could not be defeated without having certain types of skills was somewhat unreasonable, so we wanted to improve Will’s pattern.

    The Dimension Collapse pattern was intended as a gimmick to take advantage of party play, and you can still use this advantage of cooperating with your party members to find the safe dimensional before the first Collapse pattern is activated, so we want to slightly lower the hurdles experienced from the second Collapse when soloing the boss.

    In Hard Lucid, it has been improved so that when entering phase 3, any patterns that were about to activate will now disappear.

    Potential Stats


    The rates of certain potential stats have been changed.


    Developer Notes:

    Now that the Cube rates have been revealed, we would like to adjust Cube’s stats like we talked about at the last conference. This adjustment had the goal of removing certain less useful stats or limiting the number of lines to make useful options appear more.

    In this improvement, to avoid significantly changing the value of existing items, we have selected stats that only appear in one equipment type and have limited the changes to be within 10%.

    In the future, we will continue to make further improvements while observing the change in values of items through changes in potential stats.

    Detailed rates will be posted on the homepage at the time of the official server update.

    In the set rates for each stat, the critical damage +% stat was displayed as two, but they have been combined into one.


    Developer Notes:

    In the past, the ‘minimum/maximum critical damage +%” stat was changed to ‘critical damage +%’, resulting in two stats with the same name. This time, we have added up the rates of each line and combined them into one.

    The appearance rates of the following stats have been changed. These rates do not affect items that you already have, and will only be reflected when items first have potential revealed or when reset through Cubes.

    • The following stats will no longer appear when using Red Cubes, Black Cubes, Craftsman’s Cubes, or Meister Cubes.
      • (Unique) Damage when attacking boss monsters: +20%
      • (Unique) All skill levels +1 (except for 5th job and certain skills, only increases up to the skill’s max level)
      • (Unique) All skill levels +2 (except for 5th job and certain skills, only increases up to the skill’s max level)
      • (Legendary) All skill levels +2 (except for 5th job and certain skills, only increases up to the skill’s max level)
      • (Legendary) All skill levels +3 (except for 5th job and certain skills, only increases up to the skill’s max level)
      • (Legendary) Elemental resistance: +10% (based on level 120 or higher equipment)
      • (Legendary) Status resistance +10 (based on level 120 or higher equipment)
    • The following stats’ rates have been increased when using Red Cubes, Black Cubes, Craftsman’s Cubes, or Meister Cubes.
      • (Unique) Damage when attacking boss monsters: +20%
    • The following stats will no longer appear when using Additional Cubes or Srange Additional Cubes.
      • (Unique) Elemental resistance: +4% (based on level 120 or higher equipment)
      • (Legendary) Elemental resistance: +5% (based on level 120 or higher equipment)
      • (Legendary) All skill levels +2 (except for 5th job and certain skills, only increases up to the skill’s max level)
      • (Legendary) Status resistance +5 (based on level 120 or higher equipment)

    Developer Notes:

    In this improvement, less useful stats which were mentioned at the conference such as + all skill levels have been removed. Instead of removing the 20% damage when attacking boss monsters line, we have moved a certain portion of the rate assigned to it to the 30% damage when attacking boss monsters line. As a result, the rate of getting 30% damage when attacking boss monsters has been increased by 2.5%p based on Unique weapons.

    All ‘Decent skill’ lines have been grouped, and a limit has been set that you can only get one ‘Decent skill’ line from the group. These rates do not affect items that you already have, and will only be reflected when items first have potential revealed or when reset through Cubes.

    Quests


    City of Dreams Lacheln’s daily quests’ Symbol rewards have been increased from 4 to 8.

    In the [Daily Quest] Tenebris Investigation quest, the mission to clear the Labyrinth dungeon will no longer appear. You can now replace the assigned mission.

    When entering Cross World Party Quests, a message has been added that states arrows, stars, and bullet items are provided.
