Warning: I still can’t take screenshots.
NO, DON’T LEAVE! T_T
I’m trying to figure out why. I take the pic and I know MS gets the command (screen freezes momentarily) but my computer doesn’t receive the picture. ;-; I really wish I could play in windowed mode.
Onward to the real blog!
I spent almost all night Mapling.
I deleted my old Windia mage because I wanted the name SoulofHaruhi. Yes, just for the name. o_o
I’ve noticed that they’ve added new quests and now they have Victoria Island monsters on Maple Island.
Good for potential warriors and permanent beginners but bad for mages with only 4 STR. T_T
I spent like forever beating up on Stumps just for one twig and I never got it. T^T I spent so long hitting on them that after awhile MS disabled my attack for a few seconds. Ahh!
Anyway, those quests made it much easier to reach level 8. I’m kind of ticked though. When I started, I had to play for hours nonstop to get to level 10. Of course, it didn’t help that I was in channel 1 ^^ but after level 7 or 8, I had to go to the secret portal east of amherst to gain the rest of my levels. I think that portal might be gone! ;-;
Not to mention that little “quests” kept coming up that awarded exp points just for reading something. I got 11exp for reading about SP. Ahh…they newbies have it so lucky…
After my departure from Maple Island (which is now free if you do the Lucas quest), I went to Olaf who also had a new quest I’ve never seen before. Also, did anyone notice that Mai called Olaf, “she,” and Olaf called Mai, “he”? Haha, did Nexon mean to do that?
So I did the usual things you need to do to become a Magician. I went to Grendel, who talked a lot, made me a Magician and gave me a spiffy new newbie wand (back in my day I had to buy it!). I also noticed that he offered the trip to Leafre quest. I almost took it but I remembered the 30k I had to pay to get back to Orbis. >.> I wonder how many newbies got stranded in Leafre.
When I was done with him, I got ready to leave but then a light bulb accompanied by an annoying alarm sound appeared over my head. Grendel was going to help me train! Yeah! Okay! I had to defeat “eightslime”. “Haha,” I chuckle to myself. “What is ‘eightslime’?” I go to the next screen and complete the quest in like 10 minutes. I get like 300xp for it and go up to level 9.
Uh, I’m feeling kind of bad that this is so easy.
Next, I am to kill “twentyslime.” Done in a flash and I’m level 10. I stop there for the night because I want to play on my main before the kiddies log on and lag up the place.
Lesson for the day is to learn how to swim, aim, shoot, and heal ALL AT THE SAME TIME!!!
I go to aquarium after taking a quest from the scientist in the sewers. (How was I supposed to know he had dead dog skin-or something like that-on the table?) I’m supposed to kill 50 aqua pepes but there are hardly any sniping spots and little space (and no air!) so I nearly got owned and wasted so many pots. I’m going poor because I’m wasting so many potions. *emosigh*
I soon grow tired of this and then I start testing out the creatures of Aquarium. I get chased around by fish, seahorses, and crabs for a few hours or so. I complete a couple of quests and then I die because I went exploring.
I go into the cave that leads to Pianus. I test one of the monsters. He hits me for about 150hp. I think it’s safe to go further into the cave. It’s one area away, the monsters in the new area can’t be much stronger than the monsters from the previous area.
I slap a sea monster thing. He slaps me back HARD. And by hard I mean 1459hp. T_T I have 1100hp or so. Instadeath. ;-;
No worries though. Aqua monsters give good exp so in no time I get the lost exp back. However, I’m back to where I started. Which is 35%. I wanted to get to 40% but I was getting bored…
Later on, I plan to play on Cabal for awhile. I need to get to level 30 today or else bad things will happen. *_* I’ll try to include screenies from there but they’re not as fun as MS screenies.
