maple relay weapon can't be cubed

I clicked on the quest open the maple relay event UI and the tier 4 box says the weapon is 12 stars. I clicked on the maple relay under the event list, hovered over the box and it says " the equipment obtained from the box can use rebirth flames to reset bonus stats, but cannot use enhancement, potential reset, or transfer hammers."

The box from the event list says the weapon is 17 stars and has a potential that can't be changed. the box from the maple relay UI says the weapon is 12 stars.

before I spend hundreds of hours trying to get this weapon, does anyone know the truth because nexon clearly screwed up and gave us the wrong information about this event.

is the maple relay absolab weapon 12 stars or 17? and can it be cubed because the box in the event list says it cannot.


here is my discussion with the gm

that does not answer my question. can the maple relay absolab weapon's potential be reset with cubes or can it not be cubed?

    All the ones from the previous events could, I don't see why this one would be any different.
    I hovered over the box myself and it says nothing about potential reset, only about enhancing, transferring and trading.

    We have received word from Nexon that the weapon has a fixed Unique potential of 9% damage, 35% boss damage, and 10% crit rate. Cubes cannot be used on it.

    so after all these unexpected maintenance, 30 days grinding for the weapon and we can't even use cubes on it? Who the hell is up there.

    I'd take akradian's word over anything nexon's support says. At least we can confirm Akradian plays the game.

    are you saying that it can be cubed and that akradian is wrong?

    Unfortunately, playing the game is not enough in order to know these answers. Otherwise, nobody here would even need to ask.

    I trust my source at Nexon more than I trust their Customer Support department. Past Relay events gave a 12-star AbsoLab that could be recubed. Perhaps the GM was looking at an outdated description of such events.
    However, if you all remember the question of LAB Legion Blocks, we got at least 3 different "official" answers from Nexon through the event notes and through Arwoo, and the end result wasn't quite what any of them said.

    I will try to press for an official commitment via web notice, but such is unlikely to be posted before Monday, if at all.
    For now I would suggest continuing to participate in Relay, if you can.

    They've done this event in Korea already, does anyone know if theirs was cubeable?

    I'm more inclined to believe that they will copy and paste the weapon from KMS so if it's not possible there then it's probably not possible here. Same on the reverse.

    The box says what you can not do with the weapon, and cubing is not in that list.

    not being able to cube it actually is on that list. if you hover over the box from the event tab it says that its potential cannot be reset.

    Lol just checked the event on tab, it can't be used by Zero characters, but says nothing about Illium / Cadena.

    So all we can do is wait till event finishes and see by ourselves what we can and what we can't do with the weapon. This is a fiesta.

    Why don't we all just petition for them to remove all these dumb restrictions? The weapon should act like its counterpart, or you might as well call it something else. To have an Absolab weapon that can't be cubed or upgraded is confusing. Hopefully if we can get enough petition they will fix this mess. They gave us the cake and now we don't get to eat it.
