Feel free to discuss down below! I am personally super excited for the new party dungeons! Especially the 10 level 30 player one!
"Arrow Storm" sounds PRETTY similar to Arrow Rain, one of the most iconic and BADASS MapleStory 1 skills ( in my opinion.) I haven't seen any video of it yet, but I sure do hope it's as great as it was in MapleStory 1. I'm playing a Ranger, hope they do it justice!
The Guild Championships sound insane. Glad they added some ease of access to pull up a player's information. Pretty solid patch, I am satisfied! Here I am, talking as if I get to experience it firsthand, like I'm playing the Beta or something... Haha.
The maview search function :O
Awesome honestly, considering the potential of maview at this point.
Guild PVP - queues and tiers sounding hella similar to League.
But I'm super excited for the maids! Thank goodness they aren't just for decoration, probably going for ring-crafting.
omgggggg! so much nostalgiaaaaa
I can't wait ;w;
Vote T for thief XD
@ChannelOnion I watched your stream during the last beta test and have watched it all over on youtube because of how pumped I am for this game, and also you're a pretty fun streamer haha but is there anything in particular you're looking forward to with this next beta test? Obviously that robot war pq, but who wouldn't be? Look at that title! haha
Wow thank you @PkBlast ! I'm glad I am able to entertain you. I'm looking forward to having more time to fight bosses and gear up in this round of CBT as the test runs for longer period and the max level is lower. Can I expect to see you in the Final CBT stream as well? ; ) Check out my post about my Final CBT stream if you haven't already!
This is awesome
I would've expected the maids to do more... maybe perhaps they could assist you in combat? Or maybe your home could get Dirty overtime, and they could be around to clean it and stuff. I mean, yeah, seems cumbersome, but I think it'd be kind-of cool.
@Quantum Oh, I'd LOVE that. That'd be real cool, but... I kind-of hope for this Maid/Butler system to be more unique. Maybe they can give you like, Weekly quests or something (Not daily's, that's real cumbersome) and you can increase your relationship with you, until eventually, they can like... aid you in combat and stuff. I just hope for this thing to be unique and what-not.
