All MapleStory game servers
– Connection issues
– Golden Temple monsters will no longer drop certain types of scrolls.
– The Maple Team –
That means that the 100% gm scrolls will no longer be dropping from the Golden Temple.
What are GM scrolls? They’re basically 100% scrolls that give stats equivalent to 10% scrolls. Take this for example:
Though it’s not one in this recent event, it’s still the same. They’re quite OP, and people have been using them in the past 2 days to make perfect items.
Nexon’s decision to take them out was a good idea. Complaints that it will have a negative impact on the selling of the Golden Temple tickets are for QQ-ers who don’t realize that Nexon has just traded some money for the life of the game. If it were to have lasted for the whole event, the economy would have experienced massive deflation. Although this would have brought the NX:meso ratio back to reasonable rates, its not the right way to cause deflation. Everything is overpriced now because they can be, and people will afford them. The people who are crying about how expensive everything is don’t realize that in this time, it’s a lot easier to get that much money.
The problem, anyways, lies with the hackers and dupers (who are still hackers) that are messing with the economy. Hopefully Nexon is able to deal with them eventually.
Now, as to how they’ll deal with it–I guess we’ll see. It could be a rollback, deletion of scrolls, more 2x over the weekend–who knows?
