hi just uh

so apparently it takes possibly months (or even years) to get some late game items
(i mean look at new genisis set, literally 1 month wait on black mage + he won't always drop the sealed ones when you defeat him)

i mean like
'grindy' games are meant to take a long while

but a year to get enough arcane force to fight black mage + a couple of months or more (maybe even another year) to get the genisis set

that's 2 years

now maybe it's just me but
would i be even playing/interested in maplestory after 2 years of constant grinding???

and i mean if you aren't able to play like every day for whatever reason it's going to take even longer to get enough arcane power

abd i mean, slightly below that list we still have every thing at ridiculosuly slow rates

absolab already takes forever
arcane set might also take a year
tyrant set it incredibly slow
even sweetwater and fafnir are incredibly stagnant

and i mean with the recent tera burning event people would be launched into late game, suddenly have their precious 12* fafnir dissapear, and the become stuck because sweetwater took too long ?

also pensilir is not a good enough replacement a lot of the times, the amount of stars you need it at to be near 12* fafnir is alot

    i just feel like that a) future burning events need to be thought out more

    and b) there should be a slightly easier to obtain, weapon set for that large gap between pensilir and sweetwater, so people can actually progress

    c) maybe cut things down a little more realistic, since i don't know another instance in a game where a game forced you to waste months/years on it to get something

    In the next Tera Burning event when you get to level 180 and level 200 you will obtain permanent versions of the CRA Sets

    Have you seen what the finished genesis weapon is like?

    This isn't supposed to be easy to get. It's meant to be challenging.

    i hope future burning events are like this so nobody becomes stuck with an unplayable character because they weren't able to get anything before the burning event expires

    The Genesis weapons don't drop from the Black Mage; you get the sealed version upon beating Hard mode, and then you unseal it through a series of quests that involve fighting the BM's commanders.

    And the black mage himself, eight times.

    Which takes eight months MINIMUM.

    Which doesn't even touch on the fact that you need like 50 or so of the tenebris daily items as well as a drop from verus hilla. Genesis weapons aren't going to be showing up for quite a long time, I feel. At least a year before we see the first one.

    yeah no **** sherlock. Genesis weapon is from the FINAL BOSS that nexon's been milking for over 10 years.
    As for other gears, either spend $$$ or quit. Latter is HIGHLY recommended for good mental health.

    Final boss of the arcane river area, maybe. But definitely not a case of "this is the last boss nexon will ever add to the game".

    yea more boss more $$$ needed to reach cap or new cap
    allways same "drama-hype" when new boss omg cant be done if you dont cap or we need more $$dmg$$$ we cant wait year
    after feedback "drama-hype"
    youll need $$ fund and new u$p$d$a$t$e & black mage will be done solo like all other

    about items rate-time
    dont worry our glorious marvel & philo working hard with all their power to supply the need in no time

    most of it you can allready get (tyrant-kirtias wont be fixed so you can go gamble in that lootboxs & its not BiS anyway)
    sw-abso-faf its common (whales 1shot cra/lotus/comerci drop gear $$$ weekly or you can lootbox again)
    arcane set its relatively new system and wont be suprised if marvel comes with such good update (MSEA got it Arcanius Amplified )
