The MapleStory Reboot Progression Guide

MapleStory-2-pets-620x350

This guide is intended to reveal the answer of the “Where do I train” questions. Hoping this article can help you.

A lot of guides neglect important aspects that can greatly improve progression rate. They also use a bunch of acronyms that new players simply won’t understand, which lead to more questions. Hopefully, this can resolve all of those questions in one location.

MapleStory-2-pets-620x350

Let’s begin:

Section 1: Training Areas
Note: I have picked the most easily accessible training locations(Typically Maple Guide). If not accessible through Maple Guide – use the World Map and search for the monster name
Level 1-10: These levels are usually covered by your tutorial quests. Follow the short quest lines and hit level 10 and get your Job advancement.
Level 10-15: Proceed through quest line OR kill some monsters in a nearby area.
Level 15-30: Move over to Flaming Mixed Golems.

In the Maple Guide, you can click the right arrow(from Recommended Quests) and switch to the next bullet point. This teleport will take you to a map nearby Ellinia where you can then use the World Map to navigate to Ellinia. Use Quick Move to access the Taxi and go to Henesys. From Henesys, use the world map and search for Flaming Mixed Golems. Go there.

MapleStory Reboot Progression Guide

Lv30-50: Gold Beach. All the maps here are good. Depending on the class you are playing, some are better than others. I typically prefer one map from the main Gold Beach entrance. To get to Gold Beach from Flaming Mixed Golems, you can go back to Henesys. Use the world map and set the Six Path Crossways(Center of Victoria Island) as your navigation point. On this map, there is a pilot guy about half way up the tree(Stay on this map). Click on him to get to Gold Beach.

Level 50-60: Riena Strait. At level 50 you gain a warp to Riena Strait through the Maple Guide. Just follow this and do the quests here. The quests are actually slower than grinding at the rock slab monsters towards the end of the strait. But just do the entire quest line anyway as you will get a face accessory. Alternatively, use the Maple Guide to teleport you to Wild Boars at lv55 and stay there until level 60.

Level 60-80: Copper Drakes in Sleepywood. To get here, navigate to Perion(If you are at Wild Boars) or use any of the previous Maple Guide warps to get you back to Victoria island. Go to a main city and take the taxi to Sleepywood. Go one map to the right and train here

Level 80-85/90: White Pangs: Use the maple guide to get here
Level 85/90 – 100: Sand Rats at Sahel 2: Use the Maple Guide to get here(only available at level 87 I believe, but you can start training here efficiently at around 85). You can use the Maple Guide to teleport you to the Pyramid. From there, you can navigate to Sahel 2 with the World Map.

Level 100-104: Zakum. All classes can solo Zakum at level 100. It takes two runs on Non-burning non-2x EXP days to get to Lv104 from Level 100. So, go here for those 4 levels and hopefully get face/eye accessories.

Level 104-113: Runts. Use Maple Guide to get to the little yellow furballs(Jub Jubs). Train here.

Level 113-130: Robos. Teleport to Robos using Maple Guide
Level 130-140: Blue Dragon Turtles: Teleport here using Maple Guide.
Level 140-150: Dark Cornians: Teleport here using Maple Guide
Level 140-160: Mysterious Path 3: This is the map name, the monsters there are like Selkie and something else.

Level 130-160: Moon Bunnies: I don’t recommend going here if you are a new player as they do not drop Level 130 or Level 140 equipment

Level 150 + : At this point, you don’t really NEED to grind anymore, there’s a check list of stuff that you need to do which I will cover.

Section 2: StarForce/Potentials
I was debating putting this above the training section, but whatever
In your item inventory, there is a Magnifying Glass and also an anvil looking icon in the bottom right of the window. Items that have Potential slots available require the Magnifying Glass to be used. You typically want % stat on the potentials.
Tiers: Rare -> Epic -> Unique -> Legendary

Be sure to use all Runes of Riches and aim specifically for the equipment. It’s very possible to get an entire set of Epic potential equipment with main stat before level 140.

Starforce equipment whenever you want before, as it is cheap(takes about 5 minutes) It’s not too important for training. You want to make sure your weapon is 5 starred throughout training though. Also when you get Epic potential equipment, you want to discard whatever you have and transfer them up(using Hammer icon). So that you can carry that Epic Potential all the way until your Level 140 gear(Saves ALOT of mesos and time in the future).

IMPORTANT: Focus on Cubing(Look at other guides for this if you don’t know what cubing is) your Secondary -> Emblem -> Badge. In that order(Badge should be Ghost Ship Badge)

Section 3: Level 150+? Ideally by the time you reach this point, you should have full Pensalir equipment(with whatever potentials, but Epic + mainstat would be great). Most classes have around 50-70k range at this point.

Go get your Ghost Ship Badge(obtainable from Boat Quay Town from Ulu’s Quest)
Do Horntail Prerequisite(Very fast, just accept the quest and it will teleport you there)
Do Gollux Prerequisite quests(You need to do CrimsonHeart questline and switch to Tynerum once it becomes available). Found in the lightbulb on your left
Do Yu Garden quest line(Gives you access to a Black Market merchant in which you do quests on a board to get Yu Garden coins). You can buy Epic Potential Scrolls for 30 coins, and you can get 26 coins per day from the board

Magnus Prequest
Finally, just do the following every day until you hate yourself:
Zakum, Horntail, Hilla, Magnus, Gollux, Ranmaru in any order you want at the hardest difficulty you can(Probably normal Zakum, easy/normal Horntail, Normal Hilla, Easy Magnus, Easy Gollux, normal Ranmaru)
Beyond this, there are plenty of other resources. You might want to get Commerci, and some other random stuff done at some point.
End Notes
Will add more at some later time, but this is just for all the new people asking where to train.

There have been a lot of comments regarding comment about not needing to grind at 150+.

The purpose of this statement is that efficiency drops significantly. Why? Because you’re better served by increasing your range at this point. At around 150, you unlock so many ways to increase your range that you should do that before seriously considering grinding further. The difference between a 2HKO and OHKO is a world of difference in training time. And it’s even greater when you’re weaker. Presumably anyone recommending that you grind on Road to Oblivion 4 at 160 is ignoring the fact that any fresh character at that level will have around 100k~ range(with suboptimal potentialling) which makes training bad.

Prioritize the simple equipment gains(probably only takes a few days). Even leveling a link skill is more productive than training with such a low range.

NBA 2K17: How To Choose Your 2K Team During New Season

055772

Now the 2016-17 NBA season has started, you can keep up to date and play out the season ‘live’ by playing each of the games that day in a season mode (previously available on the ‘Play Now’ option).

The number one draft pick, “our” Ben Simmons, suffered a foot injury that’ll keep him off the court for three months (if not the entire year).

Steph Curry, last season’s MVP, was taken down a peg by the drafting of Kevin Durant to the Golden State Warriors. (Curry, despite his pivotal role in helping the Warriors break the record for most wins in a season, now holds the fourth highest salary on the Warriors. Stings a bit.)

And LeBron James, who delivered the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first NBA championship over the favoured Warriors, became the league’s highest paid player, after signing a three-year contract for $US100m. (Tragically, this puts Space Jam 2 even further away.)

055772

With the new season comes newer narratives to obsess over. Will the Warriors work as a collective, now that they’ve brought their major, non-Cleveland-based rival on board? Can they break – or equal – their past season’s record of 73 victories? Will they finally claim the championship many thought they deserved earlier this year? (And geez, these are only the uncertainties we have for Golden State.)

Trouble is, following along with an entire sporting season can be a slog. Eighty-two games a season, per team, not including the playoffs, amounts to one hell of a time-suck for the casual baller. Many will instead be creating their own narratives in NBA 2K17, the second-most pure form of basketball absorption. This writer will certainly be doing so.

The question is, which team is tops in the latest iteration of the video game?

Anyone looking to simply start playing – and skip the ‘My Career’ origin story – is immediately offered a choice between the Warriors and the Cavaliers. It’s a fair assumption. But what if you don’t want to simply go with the crowd? What if you’re seeking an idiosyncratic team to call your own? Maybe you just don’t want to be called a bandwagon-jumper by picking Steph or LeBron’s teams. Or maybe you want some additional justification to do so.

Whatever your motives, here are the superficial reasons for selecting your 2K team.

10. Golden State Warriors

nba-golden-state-warriors-stephen-curry-nba-2k.vadapt

The latest updates to the 2K series are minimal, besides the inclusion of 2016’s draftees and a new shooting style that is slightly more temperamental – unless you’re Steph Curry, who barely ever misses. Woe betide anyone who dares to play against the Warriors – your friends included. Remember: Nothing’s more frustrating than an opponent who only goes for three-pointers (and sinks them with impunity). Combine that with Draymond Green’s wandering leg and the generally frustrating presence of Durant and you’ll quickly become despised should you ever select the Warriors. Consider the wreckage to your personal life.

9. New York Knicks

Late last year, I was lucky enough to see the NY Knicks play the Chicago Bulls at Madison Square Garden. Seeing them in 2015 was like watching Al Pacino share the screen with Robert De Niro in Righteous Kill. Right icons, wrong time. Still, the Knicks have the towering, essential Carmelo Anthony and up-and-coming legend-in-the-making Kristaps Porzingis. They also have Derrick Rose, which is hugely problematic. Hence: they are nine.

8. Philadelphia 76ers

 ben simmons

Ben Simmons may be benched for the foreseeable future, yet he’s totally playable right now in the world of 2K. Here, this bottom-ranked team’s fabled ‘process’ is paying off just fine, with their young and hungry roster eager to climb to the top of the Eastern Conference. Playing as the 76ers – and winning – is basically as close as you’ll get to the fantasy realms of RPGs. Anything can happen.

7. Miami Heat

chris bosh

The legendary Chris Bosh’s career is basically done – except in 2K. Give him one more crack at a ring.

6. Brooklyn Nets

LOL. JK. Justin Lin’s hair can’t make this a worthwhile choice. That’d be Linsanity indeed.

6 (For Real). Oklahoma City Thunder

This is where you take your vengeance against Durant and the Warriors. Russell Westbrook may not be able to pull it off in real life. Avenge him.

5. Chicago Bulls (’92-’93 Championship Team)

The domination of the Warriors is a deterrent in 2K17… however, if you really want to win without putting in much effort at all, it’s hard to go past peak Bulls. Unlike the field goal-loving Warriors, you can dunk up a storm with Michael Jordan himself. They may be meaner than Steph and company, but their brand of basketball is more fun to play (and watch).

4. Chicago Bulls (’97-’98 Championship Team)

Same as above, except this team has Luc Longley and Dennis Rodman (and is arguably even better). Before the Warriors came along, these players notched the record for most wins in an NBA season (in ’95-’96). If you’re so inclined, you can pull Steve Kerr off the bench and get him to chasten the current-day Warriors (who he now coaches). So that’s fun.

3. Minnesota Timberwolves

Karl-Anthony Towns

The Ringer called the ‘Minnesota Timberpuppies’ the “next hipster team”; meaning, this is the gang to watch if you’re looking to get in on the ground floor of potential champions. They’ve got the awesomely named Andrew Wiggins on their roster, along with previous Rookie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns and future Rookie of the Year Kris Dunn. Start practicing.

2. Australia’s ’16 Team

What, you’re not going to give the Boomers a run? Any other pick would be un-Australian.

1. Cleveland Cavaliers

 LeBron James

Going with the trophy-holders may seem like the obvious choice, but how can you deny LeBron? If you need to justify it to yourself, consider this: Who knows how long we’ll be able to play as the towering legend? (This is his 14th season.) There’s nothing more fun in NBA 2K17 than running rings around cowering defenders as King James. That’s not even accounting for his teammates Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert (of “Fade”!). Sure, Kevin Love handles a bit sluggishly; nonetheless, this is the team. LeBron does the laundry too.

Those are just some of the suggestions we have. Which team will you select? Feel free to play around to find the ones that suit you best. For more NBA 2K17 tips and tricks, keep it right here on U4NBA.

Forza Horizon 3 PC Players Getting Banned 30 Years For Cheating, Glitching Or Nothing

Forza Horizon 3 PC bans have started rolling out, and players are furious. Abuse of popular glitches, cheating or most things that trips the protection system generates a 30-year Xbox Live ban.

For proof the dilemma, one need check out the official Forza subreddit. It’s flooded with reports from disgruntled gamers still figuring out what they’ve done wrong. The investigation is ongoing as well as the development team at Playground Games has stayed mostly silent, but there are many culprits becoming suggested.

One of the very most obvious of these is the “drift tap glitch” popularized a little while ago. It allows players to quickly level up with certain perks and cars on specific parts of the open world. If performed correctly, the glitch keeps awarding “ultimate drift” skill points regardless if the vehicle has basically go to a complete stop. As a result, it’s possible to earn approximately 1 million XP in approximately 15 minutes. That means quicker leveling up and faster unlocks than intended.

There can also be software-based triggers at the same time, including PC trainers which you can use to unlock and utilize any content in Forza Horizon 3 using a moment’s notice. Just like a cheat menu for such as Grand Theft Auto Online, these mods may result in bans if discovered by Internet security measures. Of course, like the majority of ban waves, there may also be plenty of victims claiming they’ve done absolutely nothing to earn the sanctions. In those cases, processor overclocking software and gratification benchmark suites are already suggested like a scapegoat.

Regardless on the reason, Playground Games did actually warn PC players about incoming cheating and glitching penalties yesterday. In an official forum post, that it was said that changes will be coming to “provide the ideal experience to your vast majority of players that enjoy Forza Horizon 3 the way it had been meant to be played.” It was confirmed that anyone not playing fair could well be subject to a “non-reversible permanent ban from online participate in the game.” For this particular multiplayer-focused title, that’s quite the hefty punishment.

These ban reports are merely one of many recent complaints leveled up against the PC version of Forza Horizon 3. Since launch, the port has suffered with poor optimization that could only be improved which has a series of lengthy workarounds. Patches have since been released, but performance remains spotty many times.

Forza Horizon 3 can be obtained now on Xbox One and PC.
