Is it just me or does this game expect us to play 3 hours a week total?

I want to improve my skills.
Takes 10 minutes to cap out experience.
I want to improve my gear.
30 Dungeons every week.

What do you all do afterwards?

Nearly at 1.2k trophies, and going to max out every character slot.

-Can't get 300 dungeons badges because of fair fight changes and haven't found pierce + piercing.

    Problem with normal dungeons are the drop rate of epics... Though they don't cost much at all now.

    With hard dungeons it's even worse, you can't trade an item with good stats.

    I think for a lot of people the social aspect of the game is a big time sink, for me personally as well, whenever I'm done doing something, I spent my day chatting with people, helping others out, fishing, playing mini game's and so on, but I'd imagine once you've done everything that there is to offer on current patch it'll get a bit bland.

    MapleStory 2 is designed to be a social game, honestly the dungeons and gear is just side stuff . This game is clearly meant to be a Second Life / VRChat type game. Everyone just wants to turn it into a grind game . "But why would Nexon make this?" Well for the past like 5 years people have been making / commenting / posting about old maplestory nostalgia back when MapleStory was about party play , socialism and exploration.

    Yeah,it is more like mobile phone game than anything,but good mobile phone game
    Please tell me how to get insignias,i mean some like "be founder" are obvious
    I have trouble to find them in trophies list.
    I do this
    >Do 30 dungeons on 3 characters in 1 hour
    >Do all the gathering in 10minutes
    >Craft 1000items in in 30minutes or so
    >Fish for hour or two
    >Do event for 1minute
    >Pet friend's vegetables for 30seconds
    Log off and repeat next day.

    I wish for something like "Find Friend chat"
    Or something else that is global but with no voucher needed.

    You're missing the whole point of the game m8, if you want grinding go play wow

    Isn't this suppose to be a social game? One can grind and be social at the same time right?

    Maybe you're right, it might not be the right game for me.

    You absolutely can lad, but we all spend different amounts of time on those aspects and it happens to be, that you prefer more things to do over the socialising part and that is respectable. Everyone has their own preferences in this regard.

    Party play? They removed PQs and replaced them with mindless dungeons that anyone can solo.
    Exploration? Free portals, taxis and helicopters everywhere, quest arrows and no hidden locations. Miniature maps crossed in 10 seconds by free flying mounts.
    Grinding was a choice in MS1, here it's not because everything is spoonfed.

    They managed to mess up a lot.

    I dunno about you , there's alot of maps to explore . Tons of hidden chests to find and exploration objectives to do. Does it have as much as MS1? NO of course not , because they're still gonna build more areas later. Soloing a world boss takes about 2 hours solo , and don't give me that "fair fight" bs because Fair fight is there to stop people from just solo farming all the WBs in 2 mins. Almost everyone has free premium and this is a LAUNCH event , which is why i think it's being so generous with the rotors , I don't see any rotors in the Halloween event. There are a bunch of hidden locations , the cave with the BrocoTurtles is "hidden" is it hidden well? No because it's the first map outside of Lith Harbor , but I know some people who couldn't find it till I pointed it out to them.

    Again , I dunno if the trailers haven't said much to you but they are clearly advertising this as a more social casual game . Yea they show boss battles because they are cool but a huge chunk of the videos dedicates to Fashion , Socializing , and House building . MS2 is NOT your typical grindy MMORPG , maybe KMS2 was , but GMS2 is not . But I've seen nothing from you guys but whining that it's not more like every other MMORPG out there. We actually have somebody in the forums saying they WANT P2W. Like..wth? But again , this is the forums , the place where people come to complain so..I guess someone will always have an issue.
