A Master Craftsman's Cube prices about 50m to craft Galicia; Meister Cubes cost about 110m possibly? I'd be lucky if I even find ONE at a day doing everyday bosses on two characters lol. I only have the Large Spider familiar to aid with drops, though. Maplestory M Mesos a lot of +drop rate%, you'd be dropping cubes fo' days.
So unless you are super rich and may drop billions crafting cubes, or you've got a lot of fall rate % to farm them out of managers, it is gonna take some time to get decent possible lol.
Also, scrolling/enhancing is becoming a lot less pay-to-win together with the addition of Star Force enhancement. Regular equipment doesn't have any opportunity to boom until 12 stars if you are enhancing with this new system, and it is a really low chance. Plus, if you flourish, you can keep the potential and scrolling of this boomed item to the same one. Also, formerly CS exclusive scrolls can be found in limited quantities in the rewards shop, and even as drops in-game. MapleStory is slowly becoming less pay2win.
Don't worry, this won't be a long text like this one (that I shut for this reason).ButI have left a few points about this particular topic in that thread. It is possible to use some of them as reference, but do not comment them. Just leave your thoughts.
Just to summarize. Just to think, yes Nexon might have done it wrong when they increased cap damage and exactly the same time, buffing bosses HP, there was also no way to receive totally free cubes when they increased cap. But, the solo facet take too much place in certain players mindset particularly when they watch those OP players performing cap and solo several end-game bosses (except tough lotus of course).
