    With the recent changes made, the bodyguards are no longer summoned on the platform which is why i think removing of iframe for bodyguard b would be an reasonable request.

    I disagree, because it was always supposed to spawn below the platform, and thus always supposed to be difficult.
    That i-frame is what makes him difficult (as well as his damage), otherwise he's just a punching bag with high HP and EXP.

    Spawning on the platform took away from the difficulty of the fight and so would changing how BGB works.

    Alright then. Let's drop the topic about removal of i-frame for bodyguard B. And I also realized that the way the Bodyguard B drains mp was pretty much abnormal compared to the one i had in the original MapleStory.

    On a side note: Bodyguard is supposed to be a difficult battle. It's not meant for 16x or even 17x NLs to solo. It's actually meant to be a party boss.

    The issue is Bodyguard B (MapleRoyals) is draining mp too frequently. Glitch? Maybe?

    No...as I said, and if you look in the video, that's how it's supposed to be. Bodyguard B has at least two different attacks, one of them is the MP drain and the other is a close range hit that deals 11-12k damage. It's supposed to be quick paced and difficult. Probably about on par with Horntail's difficulty. Some videos make it difficult to see the frequency of the attacks because the goal is to stay out of attack's range.

    Just switch your pet potions to MP Elixirs after BGA and that drain won't be a problem at all, works wonders against BGB.

    iFrames are also not too bad if you know how to attack him. Stay close to him and the iFrames will basically disappear. NLs with high HP are good at this due to their high avoidability.

    Bodyguard B iframe duration seems to be longer in the new source.
    While attacking Bodyguard B closer, it does trigger him to attack, it should reduce the frequency of iframe occurring in the old source however in the new source it doesn't work well anymore.
    I think it post a problem to those NL that doesn't wash and it's harder to pin Bodyguard B now even with a full party.

    Is there any possibility of reducing the iframe duration or removing it from Bodyguard B?

    Don't see myself doing this boss except for the thrill of a challenge. It takes too long for a fully assembled team and even then, the exp is bad for the time spent, no thanks to bodyguard b's iframe. I don't think this series of boss will be anything but just a recreational boss. For people looking for exp or mesos, look elsewhere.
