    Hi Royallers,

    Since some interest was shown for the first Q&A session, we will hold another one. If you have any questions you wish to ask us, you are free to post them in this thread!

    The only stipulations are that the questions must concern the game in some way; whether that be related to its content, bugs, development, community feedback, forum, website, or community as a whole, and that they must abide by the forum rules and guidelines. The questions should not be aimed at specific individuals, as we the Staff will decide on replies through cooperation and by majority vote.

    We will select up to 10 questions (if they are not duplicates of previously asked questions, and we deem them to be of high enough quality), at our discretion, but also with respect to the interest shown by the members for different questions.

    We also remind everyone that you may only post questions in this thread; not reply to other people's comments. We will close this thread 2 weeks after posting.

    Have you discussed regarding introducing more NX items to be sold via NPC? For example everstones, ap resets, sp resets, etc.

    Since there are not many before v83 maplestory content left that haven’t been added or implemented in Royals.

    Do you plan to add some after v83 Maplestory contents to Royals in the future?

    Any plans to make polearms viable to main or for bossing? Or for 2hbw to be comparable in some way to the far superior 1h?

    Any additional content planned for guild pq? I've posted lots of suggestions and lotta folks are interested in seeing it be a bit more dynamic and rewarding for all levels (unique nx, unique common eq, medals, custom guild emblems, randomized room requirements/boss difficulty)

    1. What are your thoughts on timeless and reverse weapons? Maybe tweak them to fit royals

    I don’t wanna destroy any1s endgame weapon but especially Spears weren’t well designed in maplestory. Some Lv. 85 Skis outperforming a Lv. 110 dragon weapon for „Dragon“ (Dark) Knights bothers me. Maybe we could get a meta similar to hero’s where 1 weapon is the best without si and the other is better with Si. Any thoughts/plans on that?

    What are the thoughts on trio duku leech? I find it counterintuitive that 2hit duku >= 1hit duku (correct me if I'm wrong) because of how the spawn works(?)

    On one hand, players who created new mages for trio duku should definitely be rewarded for their efforts.
    Yet, it makes others less inclined to invest in high-end mage gears to enable them to one-shot certain mobs at lower levels.

    I've always wondered if you have plans to release any other classes that were released prior to Big Bang? Aran and/or Dual Blade for instance? :)

    This question is regarding glitch abuse.

    I am not sure if this has been covered in other areas but the clearest depiction of something that constitutes as glitch abuse is from this reference: https://mapleroyals.com/forum/threa...-relog-into-the-same-map.179322/#post-1046945

    In short, the above post indicates that people who obtain an advantage over someone else in game where the said advantage should not exist falls under glitch abuse.

    I have previously asked around people I know and have been playing this game for >6mths, a good majority of them do not know what constitutes as glitch abuse.

    A certain scenario where people may not know constitutes as glitch abuse are:
    1) when an event boss (V day, Cake, Pierre, Snowman) only allows 1 character into the map but since multiclient is allowed, you (as a person and not of the same household) are able to enter with 2 or more of such characters into the map with the use of multiple devices;
    2) Using of skills when dropping into an event map where skills are prohibited (Shadow Partner, Summon - although I recall summons missing on Snowman, not sure about V day boss)

    Other scenarios where glitch abuse is ambiguous are:
    1) Starting KPQ with 4 people but once the party has entered, one player from the party can leave from the first stage (after the collection of the required coupons) and the party can continue on with 3 people. Although the original intend from Nexon was to alleviate DCs from KPQ, is making use of that allowed given that the party quest is still functional with 3 people?

    Given that there are many ways that a person may be considered as performing a glitch abuse, may I ask if we could obtain some form of verification on the common ways where glitch abuse being used (where it is not obvious such as the ban of players abusing Mom & Dad turn-in during thanksgiving).

    ~f2 Thank you for taking time to read and performing the Q&A! ~f2

    edit: I would like to thank gm Vincent (incentv) for following up on this question. As i think the answer to this was adequately responded to (as seen by 2 threads created (clarifying & feedback to add) i feel there shouldn’t be a need to answer this question any longer. Thank you!

    (Thank you vincent for following up on this during ur “ask me anything” at lounge a few weeks back!)

    Can you give an update about whether or not Pink Bean and MW30 are introduced to Royals?

    Thank you for performing this Q&A!

    Kind regards,

    What is your posture based on "Mules"? Are you ok with the current gameplay on them, are you thinking on modifying aspects of the game so new players get to be able to play without having to make mules?

    And will there be any buffs to the lv150 HP quest ?

    If your question is about Pink Bean for example, or anything else mentioned here, please understand it will likely not be answered as we don't want to answer the same questions in each Q&A.

    i got a question about my feedback, would you guys consider the slight possibility of a gender change process, similar to the name change process which is via a thread at the donator section?, as i said in my feedback the process could have a lv cap, like 30 or 50 max, to encourage players to keep creating new chars, the gender change would just be a tool for those who made a character in the wrong gender in the beginning, it would be sort of to make a slight correction, let me know if there's even a slight chance that this could be considered in the future, thanks Gm's

    Not sure if this counts as a pink bean specific question, but in general will future content (including pb) be designed to allow zerking (like how auf damage was reduced for zerk)?

    This is more feedback than Q&A, but, is it possible to provide more notice of a server check?

    As I'm sure you're aware SCs are very disruptive to the FM, and meso generation is probably the single most important limiting factor in character growth. And so, SCs are very disruptive to the personal lives of players (yes, we have them, at least at times!). Whenever there's a SC I need to rearrange my entire evening around them, spending 15-30 minutes glued to my computer trying over and over to reconnect.

    Or worse, often I do not find out about a SC until after it happens, since they are often announced on the website just before they happen or not at all.

    I realize that you probably don't want to fill the homepage with SC announcements, but perhaps you could have a pinned page that can be updated which indicates planned SCs? The website is the main form of communication with players so it's an ideal forum to share this information with the community.

    Thank you for this consideration, and as always, for the great service of this server, it's really a beautiful thing.

    Question : Reverse & timeless implementation will be quite a big change for the game’s economy if the server is planning to introduce pink bean.
    Can you share more about how the server be will rebalancing it or leaving it as it is.
    ——
    These gears are and would totally outscale whatever players has put hundreds of hours worth of effort into
    For example in their clean state :
    • Perfect clean Red Craven = 12luk 56wa
    • Average Timeless Lampion = 8luk 56wa
      5 levels available,
      - Increase Weapon Attack between a minimum of 0 and a maximum of 2 / level
      - Increases LUK between a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 2 / level
      - 10% chance for TT level +1 at level5
    With their leveling system + godly system.
    Even a perfected 19/91 Red Craven would look cute incomparison if no adjustments were considered.

    Edit : I doubt the leveling system might be working in our server or version properly. Possibily instead of coding everything, removing/not implementing it entirely just to rebalance it might actually be not a bad idea.
    —-

    Not a question @Matt but a request.
    Please adjust ariel hitbox before releasing it. Your warriors will be required jump and attack from the bottom which will be hilarious.
    Lets not make the entire melee community make a feedback thread before implementing them lol.

    So about skills i was wondering if you guys actually going to buff heroes in general.. maybe a % damage skill increment on brandish?
    I mean okay warrior shield now is 10 slots and the chance to get 2 orbs on ACA is good but on my point of view i am still thinking brandish is really weak considering pally for example
