News on Maple 2 is a bit slow right now, so I thought I'd just share some of my favorite parts of a new game/new server.

Whenever a new server came out in MapleStory, I would join it. There's something about a fresh start for everyone that gets me really amped to play. Nearly equal footing all around is awesome. Nearly everyone starts broke, you resort to bartering gear instead of just forking out meso, and you try to make as many comrades as possible to make your time as enjoyable as you can.

That leads to my main point, I've always loved guilds, especially in new servers. I'm sure a bunch of you agree, it's pretty nice to have a bunch of buddies to skype, boss, and hunt with. I can't wait to see Maple 2's guild system. I'm excited for the rivalries that will sprout when the server starts and I'm even more excited to see guilds work together in order to take down the "Zakum " of MapleStory 2 (back when Zakum actually required teamwork!) I honestly hope some more Guild Quests are integrated, something that yields a good reward rather than just Guild Points to put your name on a rock.

Straying a bit away from solely guilds, I'm looking forward to the days where this site will be packed with people looking for the newest guide for their class, trying to figure out how to solve a mysterious and difficult quest. And of course, you can be sure that I'll be reading every thread about guilds that will be brought up, trying to fill their guild up with some awesome individuals xD.

Honestly, there was no true point to this thread, I just figured I'd put out a little read for anyone who was interested since there haven't been any huge updates in a while.

Thanks for reading

Will healing priests be needed in MS2, or will the characters be strong enough to survive based on potions/gear/etc? I want to be a support class but am afraid that they will not be necessary in the game.

Nah, no matter what potions/gear/etc. is available, I'm sure priests are needed. They're very useful in my opinion.

Yeah, I agree with HeartsDesire. Priests are useful. If you wanna be a support class, be it. They will be necessary. c:

The wizards have an ability that boosts not only themselves but also nearby allies with a certain percentage of magic power. Since priests' heal stacks off of their magic power, having both in a party would be very helpful.

In every game ever, a healer is always useful. In almost all situations, a healer can win or lose you the game. If you're in a boss battle, a push on HP and defenses can greatly make the fight extremely easier. In PVP, a healer can provide aid while the team is bruised up during and after the fight. In the end, the healer is one of the key parts of a team.

TL: DR A healer is like the heart of the body; it wont take long for a party to die without one.

@suyIbackwards I believe in most games you are able to survive without a healer. I don't think you would want people to have complete dependence upon you anyhow (trust me on this one). However, healers will provide an ease of play especially at bossing. In almost every game that has a healer they are usually well-balanced so no worries. It's like fighting a boss without a DPS class. It is possible but not nearly as easy. In this way a healer would help survive-ability.

@HeartsDesire thanks! This is reassuring, so I can't wait.

@KurryKing I heard about that, it's going to be amazing to have heal combos since MATK can be raised from a lot of buffs.

@Tristan Not every game has a healer role that is exactly "wanted" in a party. That's why I was asking. I know they are helpful, but in some games people think "oh well if we do a lot of damage we don't need a healer" therefore they subsitute healers for more DPS. That's why I was asking because I don't want to feel uselss. However, @dtdtd you're correct about having everyone rely on healers, that would suck because I can imagine the hate I would get already for having to keep 9 other members alive in my party... but I would like to at least know that there is a need for them in MS2.

Their Holy Symbol will also be extremely valuable for boss fights.

Saw some gameplay and what I can see is that hp pots have a cooldown after use so this just adds the need for priests in a boss fight or just a normal party.

I will confirm that priests will be definitely be needed. Pots, gear and such will not compare to the amount of healing a priest can provide for you.
