    I am Kimberly, also known as Kimmy. Nice to meet you. We are happy you are interested in our server. Below are some of our features.

    2x Exp
    1x Mesos
    3x Quest EXP

    Explanation version:
    Our client version is v0.62 GMS. This was the MapleStory version released in November 12 of 2008, when Pirates just came out. While we are based on this version, we have a few features from later versions, such as Monster Book, which came out in v0.67. Furthermore, we have a couple of maps from different regions, as well as later versions, to expand on content while providing an Old School experience. Please read below for most of it.

    Explanation rates:
    We've chosen 2x exp because we do not offer 2x cards/coupons. This means that basically everyone has the authentic MapleStory 1x experience rates with 2x cards applied, for free. The 3x Quest EXP was done because we feel quests in MapleStory are very underwhelming. With a small boost, we feel people are more motivated to do quests, instead of just grinding. Also, every single quest works in MapleLegends!

    No drop rates?

    Since the beginning of MapleStory servers, there was an identification by drop rates. MapleLegends was for the longest time no exception, and we've identified ourselves as a 1x drop server. However, due to the nature of how chances work inside the database of each server, as well as each server having to code their own drop chance formula and % drop rates, we feel drop chances by number is meaningless and misleading. Furthermore, we do not want people to believe we have half of what another server identifying itself for example as 2x has since that would be wrong as well.

    The short answer we want to give now about our drop rates is that it's not true 1x from GMS, but still very challenging. The reason for that is because GMS had 100k+ users and we have much less, which equals fewer drops. Furthermore, we make changes to drops from time to time for mobs or maps that are seen by us as underpowered or overpowered, thus we have no *true* global drop rates.

    Explanation channel amount:
    You may notice, unlike some other servers we don't have many channels. We do this because we believe too many channels separate the community more and more, which makes it more difficult for people to see each other and make new friends. Also, too many channels give people the opportunity to farm powerful bosses over and over, which makes the server overall easier. We base our channels (currently 8) on what we believe is the right amount for our population.

    Explanation NoPay2Win:
    Donations towards MapleLegends can only be used for cosmetic purposes and not in any shape or form things that strengthen your character. Furthermore, users that donate do not get extra perks such as extra treatment or any reasons to be superior to a normal user. You donate to MapleLegends to support the server, and nothing else.

    Explanation NoVote2Win:
    Vote2win is a term in the Private Server community where the rewards from voting on GTOP is so good that you can quit for months while still voting and come back with a lot of stashed rewards and mesos. In MapleLegends there's no such thing, so playing is better rewarded than voting. Voting on MapleLegends is for cosmetics, owls, and other small things. Also, cash items cannot be traded like the original game, which means that rewards from voting cannot be exchanged for mesos. By doing this we reward people actually playing our server, and also make people that vote multiple times not have a huge benefit. Gachapon Tickets cannot be bought from the Cash Shop, and only drop from mobs in 2 tiers.

    Explanation Mapowner:
    Similar to many other popular unofficial servers, MapleLegends make use of a mapowner system. mapowner, is a system where a user 'owns' a map. You can check the current owner of a map by typing @mapowner in-game. A person that owns a map can request other users to leave or not disturb the user, to prevent kill stealing from happening. If you are not sure how mapowner works, please ask for advice on our Discord. Violating mapowner rules IS against the rules.

    With that out of the way, here are some of our features found in our server.

    Skill changes:
    Click here for our skill changes!

    • Sharenian Guild Quest
    No Carnival Party Quest (CPQ)?

    Carnival Party Quest is a party quest that we believe was not a good addition to MapleStory. The reason for that is because the EXP was very overpowered, it destroyed LPQ, and all people did was playing fixed games, by losing and winning on purpose. We believe that CPQ does not fit with the other Party Quests, who are themed based on the area. CPQ was a warp to a small map from multiple places. Due to those reasons, and our stronger nostalgia for LPQ which we do not wish to destroy, we have currently no plans to add CPQ into the server.
