    I do think that more needs to be added to the rewards shop. At least a pet every month (even if the actual water of life is kept out of the rewards shop for the sake of "profit"), increase the limit on some items (cubes, shop permits, PsoK especially) etc... Generally I believe that almost everything outside of premium NX accessories should be accessible through the rewards shop, but I doubt NexonNA will do that

    MY SOLUTION:

    Me: Remove Rewards Shop and Reward Points

    Everyone: WHAT THE HELL?

    Me: Replace Maple Reward Points with plain maplepoints (Each boss will award 50 maple points)

    This would open up the whole cash shop!!!!

    It would be cool to have these all the time:

    -Buy more than 5 cubes per month (bonus cube problem solved)
    -More PSOKS available
    -Anvils
    -All Pets (Perm too)
    -Megaphones
    -FM Shops
    -Gachapon
    -Philosopher Books
    -Fashion (Beauty Coupons)
    -Surprise Boxes
    -2x Drop Coupons
    -All Cash Shop Promotions
    -Character Expansion

    We really do need bonus potential cubes in the rewards shop because the only way of changing bonus potential is with NX at the moment.
    It's also been about 1.5 years (around the Black Heaven patch) since we had pets in the rewards shop and they should be put back on rotation again.

    It'd be nice if they, y'know, rotated some of the crap in there like they used to back when it was first released. It rotated around like... four times? After that it just kinda stayed the same.

    In my opinion, Bonus Potential Cubes are one of the sole reasons this game is still pay to play. I know Nexon bristles when they hear that phrase, "pay to play," but if they don't like it, they should change the game so that it is slower but still possible if you don't pay. That way people who want to get strong without waiting can pay, while others who wish to build their character methodically and don't mind a slower pace can also get to a point where they can kill fun bosses as well. The only downside I could see to this however is people starting to think the game is too easy, and Nexon may lower the % of raising bonus potential tier if more people were to get access to those cubes. Just some thoughts, I agree with the original post, I just think it may have unforeseen effects like having to use more to get them to legendary.

    I just really hope they would change it cause those cubes are the only thing i want right now. Its a pain to see legendary weapon with rare bonus potential, i prefer removing the bonus potential from the weapon so my ocd wont kill me.

    I can't make any guarantees, but I will bring up a few of the items mentioned above, as well as pitch some of my own ideas. Hopefully, we can improve the Maple Rewards shop in a way that everyone can benefit from.

    Don't forget Reboot's woefully empty Rewards Shop. It needs a pet, or water of life, preferably both.

    Even reboot? We just wish they had a pet or even Water of Life in the Rewards shop...

    The Reward Points shop really needs Bonus Potential Cubes, IMO.

    I agree with the bonus pot cubes part. Could also use neb fusion tickets, quest boosters and maybe even cosmetics. As for Dax's suggestion about changing to MP, I agree sort of.

    I actually like the current limitations of the rewards shop, this makes it so it's not abused so bad since to some extent it already is. *cough* star planet bots *cough*

    The only reason I agree with Dax is because it will open up the majority of the cash shop w/o having to recode everything or whatever. The rewards shop really really needs improvement in terms of item list.

    I suppose if they did Dax's suggestion and even went as far as removing limits on how many of an item you can buy but STILL keeping the limit of 30k or 45k (I forgot which one) it wouldn't be so bad.

    Fluff yall saying replacing reward points with maple points aint gonna lose profit for nexon, 1st off the most you can realistically get is 1k points in one month thats only 30k points which is nothing thats couple cubes, maybe some psoks, or whatever but nexon will still have profit cause people dont wanna wait to cube their stuff or want to spend up to around 30min or more doing bosses every single day with the rest of their dailies and so on. And those saying there b star planet guess what it's being removed when fifth job comes or a little after, so dont come at me with this weak stuff of nexon losing profits, not to mention sayying 30-45min on bosses isn't bad, ya please people spend loads of time doing other stuff making it much longer and a lot of players got lives 2 attend to so ya, sorry for da ranting.

    A minor annoyance I find in the reward shop is that items get "SOLD OUT." I don't feel happy having a limit of 5 cubes. 17k for 5x blacks and 5x reds. I'm also thinking if we can even get 30k reward points now that Star Planet is gone.

    From a business perspective, I understand the limitations. The game can't be completely free, they still need to pay for servers, staff etc etc. So it makes sense if they decided to play w/ a player's frustrations w/ the cube limit in order to motivate them to actually make a cash purchase.

    Posted this in another thread but this might work here.

    Currently I do the following bosses:
    ra 1
    ra 2
    ra 3
    ra 4
    ht
    zak
    easy mag
    ranmaru
    vl
    ani
    cht
    krexel
    mad ran
    pb/cpb
    hilla
    ephenia
    gollux
    black viking

    This ends up to 810 RP. 850 if I get lucky w/ both sides of Pianus.

    On MC, I have 3 24-hour boxes that is at an almost constant rate of 200 RP, and one 6 hour box w/ an almost constant rate of 70. So my total for MC per day (assuming I only do 1 6-hour box per day) is 670.

    This leaves my total to roughly 1480. Multiply it by 30 it's 44,400. So yeah, it's possible.
