    You have sparked my interest! I think this is a good idea overall and something else for us to do in the times we don't have an event going on or we have reach T100. I think it can be an aspect of the game to be intriguing, but I know some may argue that it isn't in the original, but neither was SEA for gas folks. I could see this being a great addition; however, I am sure there's more stuff on the table that they rather push out for now, but I wouldn't count this out.

    You have my vote :3

    One thing I think a lot about is that the ring, in addition to all the benefits, would open up space for casuals to have a market with quest items

    The Junk Yard did exactly that. The market is already there. Just post your quest etcs and once people know where you are, they'll come.

    So......is this quest ring idea going to happen or not?
    I think it's a good idea. The ring stats and level requirements are fine.

    But the main problem is this:
    SkuireSkuire said : "Many, many quests in maple are worthless content with very little reward."
    ☝️
    (Direct quote wasn't working for some reason)

    Bad quest rewards are bad enough, but to add salt to this open wound, certain quests require an obscene amount of rare items to complete. After slaying umpteen hundred foes and collecting extraordinarily rare items to complete a quest, my reward is literally sometimes worse than the items I just collected. I feel scammed by the NPC's. (Ancient Tree Sap>Honey).

    It reminds me of collecting all the koroks in BoTW to be rewarded with a pile of (censored). No, I never collected all the koroks and I don't think I ever will.

    Please make questing worthwhile. This has been mentioned enough already. Better quest rewards would make the game twice as fun, well, maybe. But quest rewards really are disappointing.

    A quest ring is a new bumper sticker on an old rusty car with 4 flat tires. But a well beloved bumper sticker it would be. If you're not going to fix the car, can we at least get the bumper sticker?

    It's still in our radar, yes. We do have quite a lot of workload at the moment, especially about the HP challenges, which is why this addition is not yet part of the queue.
    As a note - the HP challenges are not intended as a replacement for this Ring idea.

    I do agree that a lot of quests currently feel like collector's items, rather than quality content. Which is a shame, since the lore they provide is fascinating.

    I think we need more people on the development team. I'd help if I could, but my knowledge of programming is BASIC. That's what I took in school, BASIC. I feel old. Everything beyond that is self-taught. As far as game development, about all I've done is tinker with retro games via hex editor. Then again, Maple is sort of retro now...

    Do you all use a Maple editing program or just 3rd party tools? I'm sure you use more than a hex editor. Maybe we need a "Quest Balancing Team".

    I assume the most time-consuming part is testing and bugfixes. A quest ring would really require a team of testers going through the whole game, completing every quest. I understand why it hasn't been done yet. It's a mountain to climb.

    Maybe after HP Challenges are completed...

    I am fairly sure the development team will implement this, but they are still developing the HP quest challenges. One thing at a time, probably.

    This was proposed before hp washing challenges were even a thing so the chance for this to be implemented is preety small.

    Questing is fun. Yeah there's a number of quests that are more frustrating than the effort is rewarded for atm. This Ring sounds like a solid sister piece to the Monster Book Ring, and should act like yet another thing you can do if you ever feel boredom creeping in. Definitely in favor of it, and hoping that HP Challenges can not only see a good flow towards being completed, but also work with this Ring without any issues.

    I think beside being 'boring' and 'generic' kill x collect y boar ass quest that plague maple is also player FOMO for overleveling quests with their respective level range. If that was removed that would be great too.
