    1. Go to Event Hall. Pray hard you don't lag.
    2. Click on Maple Admin
    3. Select "Talk to Maple Admin"
    4. Select the last option, to exchange coins for V coins
    5. Click "V coin"
    6. You'll see a menu with lots of types of coins. Pick one that you have.

    This coin exchange may actually be the cause of the extreme lag in there now. If you have none of the applicable coin types, you aren't shown the option in Maple Admin's dialog box. It's likely that it's scanning your inventory for any of the listed types of coins, causing the horrendous lag which, according to @MegaScience , is made worse by opening your inventory.

    Love this, except it being in the Event Hall, of course. The ONLY place it shouldn't have been located. Typical. So much for exchanging anything :(

    You have none of the applicable coins to trade in. I have none of the listed coins and it doesn't show up for me either.

    That doesn't do anything, it just tells you that you don't have any nodrop items. If you have none of the coins in the list in your first post, then you're not given the option.

    Ha, Pepe Coins are one of the best ratios. And they're undoubtedly rare.

    Yeah, I don't want to toss my stuff.
    I guess I should just make a bug report.

    "Changes and Updates:
    A limit of 30 V Coins a day has been applied to the V Coin Exchange Event."

    Are you serious? What is the point of this at ALL? Considering a large portion of the userbase can't even USE the coin exchange event because... Event Hall lag. Right. Way to kill my enthusiasm for this update that should be amazing.

    It was added because Nexon stupidly included Tynerum Shards in the coin exchange, and those can still be farmed.
    https://www.reddit.com/r/Maplestory/comments/5d66aq/psa_the_v_coin_exchange_is_now_officially_out/da25kae/
    So instead of removing them, they put a limit on everything.

    As for the lag, it's apparently made worse due to the fact that Maple Admin is constantly scanning your inventory in order to decide whether to show you the coin exchange option.
    But then she doesn't use that information to only show you the coins you have, so you need to painfully scroll through her entire list and compare it to your inventory.

    And then when you click on a coin type she doesn't do the math and suggest the maximum number of trades you can make (like some other NPCs do), but leaves it to you.

    Really well designed event, Nexon. Living up to my expectations.

    That's a lousy reason. Farming those is fairly time consuming and... probably not worth the effort. Ugh. I have 2000+ old coins clogging up my inventory. There's no chance I can convert them all with this limit now. Not that I'll be able to anyways due to the lag... and there's zero chance this is going to be fixed any time soon.

    It really is well designed, isn't it? Love the preparation and thought put into it -eye roll-

    I think you can guess the answer to that one.


    Other question: why can't we exchange Water Bucks and MMF coins?
