    you won't get an official answer to that anywhere, best thing you can do is watch the discord under announcements and server-status for any updates

    Just why? DR Farming was not that good in the first place as ordinary DK because of pot cost. There could have been a multitude of ways to implement nerf DK mule farming without affecting ordinary DK players. Why the lazy way out?

    Not sure how the NT changes will work out but otherwise all the small and big steps taken here are going in the right direction, awesome!

    NT is actually so much fun now, I can say I genuinely enjoyed dunas for the first time in my life. Highly recommend doing a full tour when server is back up!

    That part took a while to figure out without nerfing the entirety of DK skills like mage previously has. Now that this system is in place, we can tackle problematic skills individually, instead of nerfing the droprate of the whole job, which wouldn't be fair to actual DK mains.


    That's the reasoning it has for the drop rate to be slightly reduced instead of substantially reduced like roar/mage ults. The problem isn't just with this skill, it's this skill in conjunction with multiple clients, where the recharge starts mattering way less since you're held back by mob spawn timers, so it's mainly the target count we need to take into account.

    To be fair, other classes are only budget in comparison because NL is that strong. It's a player-made economy, most players will always flock to the strongest/most afk/easiest to play classes. We felt this change was needed as Onyx Apples and Gelt Chocolates make classes that much stronger that a 50% duration on both of these was incredibly imbalanced power per time invested (farming Gelt Chocolates, Onyx Apples, etc).

    Pls nerf Night Lord Triple Throw damage and put cooldown on flashjump too.

    That's the straw that broke the camel's back, I quit the class.

    It really isn't.
    Frankly, this is not why I made a Night Lord. It's not what I signed up for, and this class in MapleLegends completely lost its only edge it ever had. That edge was being the best at bossing. Now Sairs don't even piss at NLs' direction.

    "BuT tHeY dOn'T hAvE ShIfTEr" who cares about shifter when at the end of the day you do more DPS even without it
