I'm not much of a "serious" player of Maple anymore, but I'm coming back into the game after a few months hiatus. The hgihest character I've ever leveled, after all these years (I was around since Broa) is my Evan. It was 16x before my hiatus, and now it's 17x after all these server crashes and the 3x exp.
I remember reading, on this site, about Evan revamps a few months ago, and seeing the OMGspeed of Evans in videos in kMS. I got excited, for the first time in a long ime, after reading gMS's website announcment of Aran/Evan revamps. I thought to myself, "speed to be able to compete with other classes, Blaze hitting multiple targets, Telecasting FINALLY, all of these upgrades will make me want to train this character to 19x." Then the patch came. I was ... confused.
Things I've noticed:
Telecast added, along with Teleport Mastery
Take less dmg to hp with new MG
Removal of the slow buff
Things I expected that I don't see:
Blaze still hits 1 target. I read on extractions here a while ago it was supposed to be multi target now?
Attack Skill Speed has not increased, or if it did, it's not noticeable by me. (or at least for earthquake, flame wheel, and blaze)
I remember looking at skill videos and seeing that dragon moving around very quickly, people were killing Captain and Kru at breakneck speed. Flame Wheels were so fast the numbers were almost unreadable. Where is my speed update? When I took my hiatus, I was sad because my wife's DB took 13 minutes to kill zakum, where it took me almost 40 minutes due to the slow speed of my Evan's skills (at 40k range) ... now I got hype for nothing?
Am I mistaken with these updates? Is there something I did not see? Or were the speed updates nerfed after I saw those videos? Am I just wasting everyone's time now because I'm out of the loop?
