  • MapleStory M – Should You Rank Up Or Fuse Your Equipment?

    MapleStory M – Should You Rank Up Or Fuse Your Equipment?

    Sep 17, 2018

    In MapleStory M, there are only a few ways to get a higher rank weapon or armor.


    One way is to rank it up using rank up stones, the other is to fuse two max level equipment.


    Other ways would include buying rare treasure boxes with real money or buying a high-rank equipment from the Trade Station.


    For free-to-play players, the most common ways are fusing or ranking up. Which one should you do?


    Should you fuse your equipment or use rank up stones to get higher rank equipment in MapleStory M? Here’s a very brief comparison.


     

    Ranking up your equipment


    The most straightforward way to rank up your equipment is by using the “Rank Up” section under Forge.


    What you need is a maximum level equipment, 10 ranks up stones that are appropriate for your item rank and a whole lot of Mesos.


    Pros

    1. One of the advantages of ranking up is that it preserves your item’s stats. If you have a perfect base attack (PBA) weapon, ranking up ensures your weapon is still a PBA.

     

    2. It also preserves your enhancements on the weapon, i.e. the amount of star force on it.

     

    Cons

    1. For higher ranks (unique and above), you need a lot of rank up stones to rank just one item. For e.g., you need 80,000 gold leaves to buy 10 unique rank up stones for your item to go from unique into legendary. That’s a whole lot of gold leaves.


    2. You also have to pay a big cost for ranking the item up. For unique to legendary, it costs 50 million Mesos per item.


    3. You have to get your item to max level, which requires a load of refining powder.

     

    Fusing your equipment


    Fusing your equipment in this game requires two max level equipment. Furthermore, it has to be the same category (a weapon with weapon/ armor with armor).


    The rank has to be the same (e.g epic with epic) as well. You also need to spend quite a lot of Mesos to fuse.

     

    Pros


    1. Fusing does not require any rank up stones. Sure, you have to get two max level equipment instead of one, but it’s doable if you farm refining powder with your alts. You can even buy max level equipment from the Trade Station.


    2. You have a small chance of getting emblem stats. Read here to understand what emblem is.

     

    3. It costs slightly less mesos compared to ranking it up.

    4. You can fuse different classes of weapons (e.g. claw with spear), but you have to choose the base correctly. If you want the fused item to be a claw, use a claw as the base.

     

    Cons


    1. It has a big disadvantage however. Your fused item will be a totally random one but of the same class and category. For e.g., if you fuse a Jaihin claw (as the base) with a spear (as material), you will get a ranked up claw for sure. However, the stats are random (can be both good or bad) and the type of claw is random. You may end up with a Briser claw.


    2. You can’t retain the stats of the item. This means it’s a bad idea to use your PBA weapon to fuse, because you can end up with a shitty damage weapon. Most people fuse because they want the chance to get an emblem anyway.


    3. Your base item will lose one star (enhancement) after fusing. Always, always remember to put the correct item as the base. If you want the fused item to be a claw, use a claw as the base. If you have two claws, choose one with the most enhancements as the base.

     

    In a nutshell


    Hopefully, this comparison between fusing and ranking up in MapleStory M has helped you make a better decision in forging equipment.

  • KMSM(Korean MapleStory Mobile) Is So Much Different From Others?

    KMSM(Korean MapleStory Mobile) Is So Much Different From Others?

    Sep 11, 2018

    What is the difference between KMSM and global version? Some Redditors gave their own answers and judgments on Reddit MapleStory M community regarding a recent thread upon the Korean version' experience. Here are some quotes from this discussion:

    "Korean version is so much different from the Global version. Here are some key differences:

    1. Available character classes: Phantom, Luminous, Mercedes, Evan, Aran, Explorers (Including Paladin and Hero), KoC

    2. Equipment classifications: In the trade market, the equip are classified according to levels 10, 20, 40, etc till level 160, ranging from all sorts of weapons to accessories. Characters can only equip the next higher tier equip upon reaching the next level tier (10,20,30,40, etc). For each level tier, there are sub tiers which classifies the equip to normal, rare, epic, unique.

    3. Level cap is 200.

    4. Lots of event dungeons.

    5. Equipment drop rates: I started a new character and even the weakest monsters (blue snails, green snails) drop equipment at quite a high rate.

    I feel that the global version basically is a cash cow for Nexon. Korean Maplestory M feels a lot more like the PC version. So many more features..."

     

    So I played Korea Maplestory M from r/MapleStoryM

     

    "This is a normal phase for the Western release of any Korean games. We get behind the updates from Korean version by months or years so that the Western publishers can make enough profit to actually break even or obtain the updates from the developers.

    There's this MMO called Black Desert Online, at first launch for the Western players, the updates were average every week and then they pushed the major and important update almost every week now to the point they are like few months only behind the Korean version, and some players are complaining the contents were released to fast for them to actually experienced it beforehand.

    So enjoy what you what, try the Korean version if you will. The content will come, it's just a matter of timing and Nexon's decision when they have profiting enough from the game."

     

    Card

    "I played KMSM when it first came out, and I don't recall having these armors we have here in the global release, I'm pretty sure they ALWAYS had the regular gear which is leveled at like 10, 20, 30, 40 etc. My nooby mage on KMSM is wearing nooby PC style equips and it's marvelous.

    Pretty disappointing because if KMSM never had it then it's not a release we'll get later. Seems like we've gotten a dumbed down version. I really like the PC style equipment system of KMSM.

    Extra jobs I'm not fussed about, KMSM didn't have those on launch either.

    Making mesos in KMSM is A LOT harder though imo."
