    Hello Maplers,

    We'd like to thank everyone for the feedback regarding Castellan Toad. Some very great points were raised up and were immediately taken into consideration for our decision.

    Furthermore, we have looked at every single old school JMS video with Castellan Toad (2007) available and couldn't find a single one of them with a ranged class in the team.

    MapleLegends' goal was always to put priority for those that want it authentic over those that don't. A similar statement was made when we had a poll regarding boat changes.

    Considering this, and what we've found from old footage, we came to the conclusion to release Castellan Toad unchanged and unnerfed stat-wise. However, he will stay instanced as announced in the previous thread, as to not make him infinitely farmable.

    While not everyone may be able to participate in the Castellan Toad fight with their current characters with this decision, we hope you'll understand that this was the way he was released in JMS, and that ranged classes already have many benefits at other bosses and overall, as stated by users in the feedback topic.

    Keep an eye out for the upcoming notice of Castellan Toad's launch, and with it, a small surprise. ❤

    Thank you,

    -MapleLegends Administration & Staff-

    If that were the case in GMS no one could HP wash because it cost money and ranged chars were doing HT at like 180. Following the logic stated above we should just remove the resets altogether so we can create a GMS-like experience and no ranged class can HT till 180.

    I agree with the conclusion, but I do not think a lot of people are going to be happy with the logic used here to arrive at that conclusion.

    I agree; this should give melee classes more of an edge

    The point is that there are some bosses ingame that are pretty much impossible for warriors due to the high/"impossible " acc requirement to hit those bosses.

    What do you mean by "no one could hp wash because it cost money"? There were plenty of people in GMS who hp washed even back in the day and spent plenty of money doing so. Those who didn't want to spend so much money spent more time to level to higher levels. The assertion that "no ranged classes could HT till 180" is not true.

    Anyway, this seems fair enough since on melee classes it is literally impossible to do some bosses. Ranged classes actually even have it better because they can technically hp wash enough to do this boss eventually, but warriors will never be able to hit The Boss.
