    *Today on the list of things becoming more authentic are drop animations. Something horrible ugly in MapleLegends was the way we still handled these. This was one of the earlier code of MapleLegends, done in 2014. Instead of using the proper damage packets for drop animations, we did some hardcoded manual calculations, which was especially bad with ranged attacks, where drops already flew out of mobs before the shot even landed! Hopefully, drop animations from skills, especially ranged ones, look much better after this maintenance.

    **But wait, there's more! Also refactored is the way skill effect animations work. Ever noticed how in MapleLegends mobs immediately show their freeze animation or taunt animation as soon you press the button? This was never correct! On top of that, it's weird and unrealistic. Like drop animations, skill effects are meant to have a delay as well, and only show the effect when the skill has 'hit' the mob. For the freezing example, the mob still stops moving as soon as you cast the skill, so the change should be purely visual.
