    Look, I love to laugh. One of my favorite ways to tell jokes is while I'm gaming, its tricky to make people laugh in general, its even more tricky if have to type your jokes and your in the middle of a boss fight, which is the best time to tell jokes, or when your leeching with some friends, it would be nice to have a bit of safety built in to each map so people can type in peace. I am not an expert in every map so but one map that gets a lot of attention is Cd's. While exploring the other areas of the mall around Cd's I found each one had ladders or ropes or Balloons to hang from to stay safe, and tell some jokes or not be forced in FM. I want to know who else wants more chill spots added to popular maps so jokes and peace can me maintained, is it necessary, arguably no, but this whole game is unnecessary so for the love of comedy add ropes and safety to popular maps, who agrees?

    You're safe enough at the top of the CD's map and can only be hit if you or someone else has agro from CDs there.

    Should be plenty of time to chat around, just don't fully afk.

    Jokes are fine and all but there are balance reasons to consider too, you cant just have safe spots everywhere xD

    Adding safe spots will almost certainly encourage more AFK play. I understand that not everybody enjoys the grind, but making leeching easier makes it harder for people who DO enjoy doing everything by themselves to find a decent map to train on. If you want to socialize, you have the warp to FM button. If you want to leech, just move when you need to.

    i think it'd be nice to see you mention the map Name/ ID and others non popular maps namely, if any u have in mind? i.e. maps without safe spot: "Flaming raccoon"? which i personally use for my card hunting session (would be nice for future card grinders) but i door every time a card drops when im lazy to keep my party hp bar in check.

    If you look at the map design of earlier MapleStory content such as Victoria island or Ossyira, you’d be hard pressed to find maps without safe spots (excluding maps with flying mobs). This was clearly intentional, having safe spots in maps encourages you socialize and relax more during party play. Unfortunately, this is abused severely in the mage grind meta, and the band-aid solution MapleLegends currently has is to remove safe spots rather than balancing mages.

    Since the mage meta is going nowhere, I don’t think there is really a solution to this problem. All I can say is, this is the way you will have to play the game. You are right, but it is difficult to do anything about it.

    doubt its abusable in every map tho, since not all maps are most sought after. considering how efficient it is to grind in some maps than others. also, would be nice if u could indicate which map for example would be too abusable if safe spot like a rope was included

    I do not understand how people can be having a full conversation during zakum runs and not die. If they can do that I don't think safe spaces are necessary.

    You should seriously consider playing a bandit.

    When my guildies took me through Zakum for my helmet the auto pot never activated when Zakum did the 1/1.
