    I think we can all consider maplelegends to be a fairly "finished" server when it comes to adding content. PB is added, all pre-BB world tour areas are added, and most of the areas from v63-v92 have been added as well.

    So what else is there? I'm just listing things here from pre-BB, not making any arguments about if something should be added or not *cough cpq* :sick:. Not entertaining additional classes & their corresponding starting areas (KoC, Aran, Evan, DB). If I am missing things please let me know!

    Various PQ's:
    • Ariant PQ (lv20-30, pseudo pvp, awards a chair)
    • Carnival PQ (lv30-50, pseudo pvp, awards lv35-50 weapons and a pendant)
    • Carnival PQ 2 (lv51-70, pseudo pvp, awards another pendant)
    • Nett's Pyramid PQ (lv40-200, awards a belt)
    • Mu Lung Dojo [solo & party variants] (lv25-200, awards belts)
    • Ghost Ship PQ [aka Dual Raid PQ] (lv60-80, pseudo pvp, awards 7 slot cape)
    • Ice Gorge PQ [aka shammos PQ aka Hob King PQ] (lv75-200, awards +%10 HP earrings and a 180 speed mount)
    • Dragon Rider PQ (lv100-200, awards lv105 weapons that give attack bonuses and lv110 dragon armor)
    • Lover's PQ/Grandma Tree (fills the role of Amoria PQ as a marriage PQ but for China+Taiwan MS, awards 100% Shield Att scroll, see here: https://maplesecrets.blogspot.com/2011/05/unreleased-bosses.html )
    • OSSS PQ [aka Visitor PQ] (various level ranges rewarding alien equipment of appropriate level, highest awards are lv127 VIP alien gear, this PQ was attached to the Visitor event discussed in the comments of this thread)
    • Abandoned Subway [aka Kerning Subway Clean Up PQ] (lv25-30, a lower level version of Nett's Pyramid where you kill a horde of monsters for 3 stages)
    • World Tour Boss Rush (JMS version of Perion Boss Rush featuring non-JMS bosses https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygMuCbPC3J8 )
    Quests:
    • Operation Strategy [aka Timer quest] (lv59+) *likely not added because of the UI elements for the Timer egg not being in v62 [Update; as of November 2022 the UI functionality is now in MapleLegends!]
    • Coke Shield & Coke Earring (should be obtainable as a reward from the Coke Town questline)
    • Neo Tokyo Quests (lv100+) *There are additional NT quests beyond what we already have in Legends
    Areas:
    • Mushroom Kingdom [Theme Dungeon] (lv30+)
    • Kerning Square [Theme Dungeon] (lv45+) *this is the GMS version of Taiwan :sick:
    • Neo City [Theme Dungeon] (lv70+) *this is the GMS version of Neo Tokyo :sick:
    • Shanghai Yuyuan Garden (CMS town area connected to Shanghai based on the real-life tourist area by the same name, it had a pseudo pvp arena, it also gave shanghai+shaolin a world map) see here: https://kmkm.forumotion.com/t2498-yuyuan-garden
    • Lionheart Castle (lv115+) *although this is post-BB, it's been hinted to be released in Legends, stats of mobs here: http://www.southperry.net/showthread.php?t=40613
    • Internet Cafe maps (not particularly unique, smaller versions of existing victoria+ossyria maps for grinding)
    Bosses:
    • Chaos Zakum (awards chaos zakum helmet)
    • Chaos Horntail (awards chaos horntail pendant)
    • Neo Tokyo Bosses (Royal Guard S, Core Blaze, Aufhaven) *referred to as NT part 2
    • Balrog (awards +2 all stats shoes & other random equips)
    • Von Leon (see Lionheart Castle above)
    Monster Book:
    • Remaining Zipangu mobs (blue mushmom/mushdad, jonin, red slime, etc)
    • Taiwan mobs
    • Thailand mobs *not sure if cards exist for these mobs
    • NLC mobs
    • Crimsonwood Keep & CWKPQ Bosses & Amoria mobs *cards were never made in GMS
    • Coke Town mobs
    Other:
    • iTCG related exchange quests/crafting and pseudo-quest dialogue (Possessing items only acquired via iTCG code redemption allowed you to interact with various Masteria NPC's, such as Ridley's stone allowing you to talk to Ridley outside CWK for example)
    • Lv110 Dragon Equipment (craftable with Maker or obtained by Dragon Rider PQ)

    EDIT 1: added LHC
    EDIT 2: added Monster Book section
    EDIT 3: crossed out content that has since been added
    EDIT 4: crossed out crimsonwood keep cards
    EDIT 5: added iTCG related content
    EDIT 6: added Coke Shield quest reward
    EDIT 7: added suggestions/corrections pointed out by RedwopRedwop thanks!

    Apparently NT part 2 is rumored to be in the works.

    But my money is on staff working to optimize and clean up all the code before this happens.

    Either way it'll be great for us as we can enjoy a well optimized Maple experience.

    There’s a portal in wolf territory 2 that’ll teleport you to “future content”. If you try to enter the portal, it’ll hint you that there’s new content coming. I forgot the name of the new area

    it might be a bug since the mobs on the map are wrong (according to the lib, previous experience and logic), but I doubt it

    I do not believe any of the PQs other than carnival/ariant colleseum (which the staff don't want to add) are realistically possible in v62. Mushroom Kingdom may be possible (though I'm not sure if v62 can do the trampolines) but I believe the staff has no interest in adding it either.

    NT Part 2 is pretty much confirmed to be in the works, so that's something to look forward to (even though the rewards don't look that great - auf haven circlet has really low base stats in exchange for 20 slots; the 60% scrolls suck a lot and the 5% scroll is, well, 5%). Chaos Zakum and Horntail should be codable without much issues? (I don't know much about them so I can't say for certain) From what I remember with my short experience with some v83 servers, Balrog seems very unlikely to be implementable on v62.

    That's the portal that leads to lionheart castle (party play area for level 115+ that was added a few months after big bang). I guess I can include that area since the staff are hinting at its eventual release

    TBH, I'd like any other PQ other than these, the toxicity of "Win-Trading" while one person would leave then join and that person would be left out of it.
    (Party leader adds someone on the opponents win then say that they have to go right after and then another party would have to be formed again and that person would have a chain reaction of just not having a win traded could happen to anyone and its not a nice addition)

    Lion Heart Castle was my all time favorite addition to MapleStory as it provided such awesome 115+ party grinding and overall promoted interaction among high level players (other than bossing). Would be so cool if it ends up being added *hopeful eyes*.

    I think that certain content can be refurnished for other gameplay purposes rather than just omitting them because they would become a dominating content in the 'meta'.

    If my memory serves me right, there would be some request for some form of PVP back in the day. But maplestory does not seem to be a game that is suitable for direct PVP, so some indirect form of PVP (eg, monster carnival) was introduced. I think that this PVP gap could be filled with some content. For example, rework the rewards of monster carnival (say, strip away the exp component) and the mechanics (say, open the content to everyone but limit to second job skills) and it could fill the gap.

    Alternatively, if it is technically feasible, custom content should not be totally out of the window. Nostalgia gets players back into the game, but if we want players to stay or return consistently, new content would be necessary.

    Is he though? If the content remains the same for an eternity, people will eventually burn out. I think a big factor why Legends has been growing and maintaining a large playerbase as a v62 2x exp server is because they have been progressive with the updates at a very plausible speed. I'm not saying ''Let's get Chaos Zakum & LHC'' but updates that were added like monster book add a big share to the game that for a lot of people is another year of content.

    Fair point, you're right there. I think I spoke too quickly out of dislike for excessive progress/new content/powercreep.

    I feel like the only way PvP stuff like carnival could work in Legends without A) undermining old content and B) creating tons of toxicity is if they just outright removed all rewards.

    Like you literally get nothing, no exp, no mesos, no scrolls weapons gacha nx chairs. Except maybe a win counter or leaderboard for top players.

    This would allow the content to be a fun distraction while adding dimensions to the game. Carnival is a pretty cool idea but it was way too good for leveling and maple is a fookin grindy game, so naturally it devolved to win trading and also completely outclassing all available content in its level range. If we remove these incentives to it then the PvP aspect comes front and center again, could be a fun challenge for minmaxers while providing new fun goals for players who dont want to grind/wash for late game; how strong can you make a level 50 character to climb the Carnival rankings?

    Just spitballing a suggestion.

    I’d be glad if somehow the server “runs out” of content to add. Then there can finally be some attention put to rebalancing all the still kinda messed up but band-aided early and mid game content. There is so much potential especially in quests for rebalancing to occur. Also they could finally fix coke town and add the coke shield and whatever other random cool items like ITCG stuff

    LHC - It encourages 6 man grinding parties, which would really boost the social aspect of the game. The bonus party exp could be adjusted to not make it op.
