Biggest MapleStory Fail

    • When I first joined Maple as a kid (like under 13) I invested my SP into HP for my Warrior.
    • Wasted 10,000 NX buying a name change and then accidentally cancelled/undid the request.
    • Attempted gifting a friend a pet, but the request kept failing causing me to try multiple times before accidentally purchasing it for myself.

    Edit: Oh god, just remembered a very cringy fail, hopefully I don't get in trouble for admitting to my past crimes. I remember trading NX for mesos, didn't know it was against the rules since I was a kid and stuff (probably lied about my birth year too when I created that account), and I got scammed out of 1,000 NX for a gachapon ticket. Somehow knew this guy was sketchy, refused to sell him anymore until he sent payment, tried convincing me by threatening me that he wouldn't pay until I sent everything at once, yada yada, refused, he left, etc. Proceeded to waste 20k NX on Smegas calling him and his accomplice, the one gifted who was tried acting like he was unaware, out. It's more cringy that I even remember this. :|

    Edit 2: Remembered another Maplestory fail. I bought the pet area pick up extension or whatever it's called after seeing a user have a pet that automatically looted on separate platforms, but little did I know that they were botters and botting at the time. Looked pretty legitimate back then compared to the pets now that teleport everywhere really fast, where it would just teleport to the platform above and below the player and let it do it's running/collecting animation. Needless to say, was greatly disappointed after I bought it. And that is how a botter inadvertently benefited Nexon one day.

    My biggest fail was when I gave my account/email to some random guy, cuz he said he needed it to get me a Zakum Helm (it was in 2007-2008).

    Bragging about leveling fast (Pre-big bang) and then promptly getting banned because of many false reports of hacking.

    Another fail I got... Up until now, I didn't use link skills cause I thought "link" meant, ya know, webpage link. And you know how Angelic Buster's link skill is called "Terms and Conditions"? I thought if I used AB's link skill, it would open up a link to Maplestory's TOS

    So this fail was preceded by a stroke of good fortune when someone quitting gave me 1m mesos almost a decade ago when 1m meant something(maybe not; it was a lot to me). Shortly thereafter I had been grinding or something and someone offered to help level me and since I didn't know any better, I handed over my acc. and was overjoyed. Couldn't log in for a few days or so and after I could all my mesos were gone and I'm pretty sure my char was naked. Changed my password immediately and I never trusted anyone ever again. RIP me.

    I thought INT would make my Paladin's elemental charges stronger back before Big Bang (Yes I bought AP resets from the cash shop to get those points back)

    Also bought 5% css by accident a few times instead of 10% (dude put them between 2 stacks of 10%s in his hired merch to trick people)

    Another would be towering the ludi lower under-leveled ending up in omega sector with no tower scrolls.

    :o

    Me on my first char. Level 30 thunder breaker. Stuck there for 3 months. No joke.

    Gonna have to go with when I was making a sair, got her good Royal hair and eyes, then accidentally made her into a bucc.
    I ended up deleting the character because she was fully invested in dex.
