  1. GMS needs the pendant slot. It wouldn’t take much effort to implement it.

  2. Cai Shen … who is he ?
    oooh and not to forget : aww those sad, sad, sad MSEA’ers.. they got nexoned more than GMS players ever got cause of the extended launch of DB .. i mean its unfair to announce that you wil release a job in 3 months.. just announce the job when you wil release it in 2 weeks.. its like putting someone in an empty room in front of a clock saying he can get out at 10AM.. cause he is looking at the clock time wil go so slow for him that he wil get bored to death.

    And Golden Richie event fails cause u can only enter at certain times -,-
    The first time that event was released in GMS i tought it spelled NEWS (not NESW), so i was wondering, what does this event has to do with the news ?

    Seems like the theme of this patch is BUNNY.
    Ooh and before i forget, what got changed in the HT map ? the say something about a rock .. but since i never did HT and dont know the map could you tell me what the add ?

    • I have no idea who Cai Shen is. The letters in the Gold Richie event actually stand for North, East, South and West (the cardinal point on a compass). You’re trying to rebuild Gold Richie’s golden compass. The entire change to Horntail was to prevent hacking in Horntail (and then deflation of HTPS) and hogging of the Horntail map. You see in the picture of the map where it has those three ropes? Well before this patch AFK players could climb the ropes and go to the top of the ropes. Horntail’s skills couldn’t reach them up there so they were safe from attacking and could AFK freely. A rock has been placed there now preventing players from climbing to the tops of the ropes. Now they can’t climb high enough to avoid Horntail’s attacks and they can’t AFK freely.

      • oooh i see .. and i know that it means North east South West, but i tought nexon wanted us to collect those letters and whne you combined them they had to spell NEWS, not thinking about the fact that it was used for a compas to make North-east-south-west.

        Does GMS also have that rock there to prevent AFKing ?
        if we do did we got it in a seperate patch like MSEA or did we had that rock there from the start ?

        and howmuch time you have to HT in GMS ?

        Oooh and something else about KMS, they changed the empress boss 2 times in Tespia, 1 time they gave her more HP, and the second time they lowerd her HP or something, but during the KMS patch they patched her with the high hp.
        So why didnt they directly patched her to the HP she would get next patch, cause this seems like an avoidable annoyance for the player of KMS …
        (soory for the noob questions about HT)

        • There’s no such thing as a noob questions. All questions we meant to be asked and I’m happy to answer. GlobalMS doesn’t have the rock and has 12 hours to kill Horntail. And I have no idea about Nexon Korea’s ways.

          • so in GMS people still afk and hack at HT like is prevented now in MSEA ?

            ooh and just somthing totaly random, have you seen the AWSOME chaos trailer ? oooh i really hope they wil make a maplestory anime now, but the chars looked a bit wrong to me, they looked like they were 2d, and not like in anime some kind of 3d, cause the BaM looked fat but on the other side he looked really flat and 2d…. to me it seemed like a mix of japanese art and american art

  3. @thechazz there is a maplestory anime. Look it up and YouTube. The farthest English translation is by redxtream or something like that.
