    PATCH NOTES #4 - July 1st 2015
    Nexon Korea released the last patch notes before the actual release today. There will be no other changes before release. It's a very big post with alot of new and changed stuff.



    [​IMG]

    New Dungeon

    This new 4 man dungeon is located around Tria and is called the "The Secret of Cherry Blossom Forest" The level recommended for this dungeon is Level 18. You can enter the dungeon from 초록 숲 오솔길 (Green forest trail)


    [​IMG]
    New Boss
    This new 10 man raid boss is based around Ellina and this boss is named 해모칸 (Hemoc(or k)an) (We're not sure about the english name yet) The level recommended for this world boss is Level 28. You can enter this map from 엘보의 통나무 굴 (Elbo's log tunnel)

    *Keep in mind there's no real restriction on entering these dungeons at this moment, everything is just an recommendation. We don't know if this boss needs an pre-quest to be able to enter.



    World Map UI changes

    [​IMG]


    They've made a few changes to the world map and the UI of it. You can now see where the entrance of the Shadow World is by looking into your World Map. It is now also much easier to swap between the real world and the shadow world in the world map, they made the button to differentiate between worlds alot easier.


    Newly added notifcations for Elites / Bosses
    [​IMG]

    "<insert a boss name> appeared, Check World Map for more information"

    They've made it easier to know if a Elite / Boss is respawned. You'll get notified when an boss is respawned It will tell you which Boss has respawned and tells you to check the World Map for more information. This does not count for the bosses you have not visited yet or bosses that spawn on hidden maps. So make sure you visit all bosses / elites when you are max level. You will not get notified if those elites or bosses respawn.



    [​IMG]
    Real-estate (Housing) changes

    They've made quite a few changes how the real-estate system works in Maplestory 2. First change is that they've changed the prices of the houses. The price difference between houses will depend on the size of the house or land.

    The second change is that you're now required to have a certain trophy that unlocks you to buy real-estate. If you terminate your contract or you let it expire. You will lose the real-estate or house and will be moderated by an "Royal Family". After an certain period of moderation of the Royal Family that particular real-estate or house it will be buy able again.




    [​IMG]
    Enchantment System changes

    • You are now required to use an special Oryx Crystal (카오닉스 결정) to enchant items that have Excellent (Purple / ****) or higher quality.
    • +7 or more enchanted items will give you an special mark on your name (You can choose whether you want to show this mark in the system preferences) Highest stage will be displayed. It will also show the item grade of that particular item.
    You can also trade in this Oryx Crystal with special NPC items to gain an item with at least an quality of Excellent.




    [​IMG]
    Trophies changes and additional improvements

    They've added a new variety of trophies and there's a few changes to the reward system of trophies. First of all, they have removed the merit reward system when you unlock certain trophies. The compensation of these merit rewards have been replacement by the Guild Championship and PC Room (Net Cafe in Korea) compensation promotion benefits.

    Second change is, If you hover over an certain Trophy (tooltip), you will get information about it. You also have the option to show or see your favorite trophies you've collected and separate them.

    Last thing there's a special Emblem for special adventures that made it for Guild Championship attendees who made it in the ranking. Also adventurers who have an stylish character or made an stylish outfit in the designer shop.




    [​IMG]
    Maid Changes
    You can now receive a Dreaminess maid coupon for free by completing a quest at Level 14. They've also made the change that you can check all recipe(s) that a specific maid is capable of making before you hire him / her. (Tooltip for rings and pendants will now display additional information for all results)
    • Each maid now has a own special recipe (Not much useful for battle, but great for fun)
    • Maids have received new voice support (Various NPC also received new voice lines)


    [​IMG]


    Mount Changes
    Increased mount speed overall. They also fixed a bug that speed reduction is not applied when you're on mount



    [​IMG]

    Maview Changes
    You can now search keywords by clicking the lens button. Also you can search news about a certain person by clicking the MAVIEW button on your or his character window.



    [​IMG]

    Guild Championship Season 1
    The Menu will now show guild championship information and how many times you have participated in guild championship. This counter wil bel reset when you leave an guild.

    When the season ends, you will be rewarded by your ranking / record, but you have to participate many times to qualify for this reward.

    (More details for guild championship will be announcement later)



    [​IMG]
    Wallet System
    Certain coins (Guild Championship Valor and Karma*) will be instantly stored in your wallet now instead of your inventory. They did this to remove clutter.

    *Karma is a coin for in the Shadow World.



    [​IMG]
    Gearscore System
    They've added an Gearscore type of system where you can see how "good" users items are. Let the joy and toxicity begin within the community with this integration.

    Very bad decision by Nexon, they could have made this differently. This will invite alot of "Elite pug frustration" People who are unfamiliar with Gearscore here's information about it http://wowwiki.wikia.com/Gear_score


    And last...





    [​IMG]

    New Field Boss
    There's also a new Level 15 field-boss and he's called 둔둔! He has an frog-like appearance. Find out yourself where he spawns. When the game comes out next week.

    Gearscore is no different than iLevel that is used in multiple other MMOs. This will be a quick and easy way for people to gauge areas.

    "You can't do PQ X until you have a Gearscore of 120".

    So are maids essentially the functional equivalent of androids from MS1? Or is there some real function that they have?

    I think the gearscore is a fine idea. Realistically you want people in a pug to have good enough gear to clear no problem, also gives noobies a way to gauge where they are at gear wise. +1 to the patch notes

    Gearscore is good... im not gonna pq/boss with people over and over until we get it perfect. Rather, hit a specific desired gearscore and we can clear it just fine.

    Gearscore was freggin aweful in WoW, just because the stupidity of the community at that point in time. People were asking for people with higher gear score than the dungeon/raid item's would give them. So it became a system where geared people would only take geared people to a dungeon/raid that gives shittier gear and the less geared people could not get geared because no one would pug with them lol. I doubt that it will happen in MS2.

    The addon didn't cause the elitist behavior. The elitist community, which was present years before gearscore, needed more convenience in being elitist. During Vanilla and BC, it wasn't a big deal just because itemization in WoW. Even during Vanilla, people were looking for level 55+ MARAUDON groups just because they wanted the pre-raid spirit shield. Transitioning to ilvl didn't make the community any better. I see many groups asking for 685+ for Mythic dungeons and 690+ for HFC normal right now.

    That being said, the MS community never struck me as being anywhere near as elitist as other MMOs, so hopefully it won't be a huge issue. The main reason MS1 players were (at least before I quit 3 years ago around Jump) more relaxed about gear comparisons was because gear wasn't really necessary for doing most bosses and grinding LHC (d/c hackers and connection issues were much more difficult challenges than the actual bosses). If the dungeons and raids in MS2 are actually difficult after a few weeks of getting non-tester gear, then we'll see the same problems as in WoW. If I've been through a raid multiple times, I don't want to join a progression group. Especially with MS2's randomized stats and the likelihood of going back to old raids for crystals, I'm sure there will be groups looking for only overgeared players, and I don't really see anything wrong with that. Leading raids in MS2 isn't going to be nearly as difficult as WoW due to the overall simplistic nature, so players trying to progress can and should start their own groups.
