Maplestory is going through another big patch. Consider it the revamp of the revamp. However, this patch largely affects scrolls, consumables, and skills which were missed in the last patch.
Considering the way mob attack and player defense worked, certain scrolls that only give 2 defense were completely worthless in the grand scheme of things, so scrolls that give defense were greatly buffed. Also, some scrolls now give upward of 50 - 100 accuracy, and some scrolls even give +350 HP!
New Equip Type:
In other news, a brand new type of equip was added to the equipment window. This one is called "Pocket" (charmPocket in the data). Although I don't see any actual items related to it in the data, I do wonder what its use will be.
There was something else interesting added to ETC items. There is a new variable called "bagType" which is always equal to 2. I am unsure of what this means, but if I had to wager I'd hope it would fix some of the problems with having enough storage for all of the quests that are available to you.
Skills with Flags:
One of the changes with the skills that I'm most excited about is the addition of flags with each skill. It gives a more clear and concise explanation of what the attack or skill does, and I assume that this data will also be reflected in the skill description. For example, in the Crusader's ability "Attack Chance" which increases damage to stunned, frozen, or blinded mobs, there are now three corresponding flags in the data - incDamToStunTarget, incDamToDarknessTarget, incDamToFreezeTarget. This will help not only users of these skills to know more about the mechanics of each skill, but it will also help data extractors be able to relay that information in offline extractions.
There will be no traditional extraction this time around. There's really no new data added. A lot of existing data was changed.
Method of Attack:
2. Adventurer Skills
3. Cygnus Skills
4. Aran/Evan Skills
5. Resistance Skills
6. Skill flags
