Ring Scrolling/Augmentation (Kanna Ring or whatever)

Leaving this here for my friends’ and I’s reference, least it gets lost in the chat.
This works for MA too, I guess.
Image result for Kanna Ring
Okay first things first you need tons of the following (quantities are how much I prepared for mine. Grossly overestimated, but I doubt this will be the last ring/item you scroll anyway):
-Chaos scrolls of Goodness 30% (x100)
-Innocent scrolls (x100)
-Clean Slate Scrolls (x100)
-Golden Hammer 50% (x100)
A LOT of spell trace (x2 stacks of 9000)
-Mesos for Starring (500mil. I was very unlucky, lol)

Kanna’s Treasure (Ring) only has one upgrade slot by default, therefore you have a potential of 3 slots to scroll.
x 1 Default slot
x 1 Golden Hammer slot
x 1 Cash Hammer Slot (Optional)

You want to get your first default slot to be your 5WA slot. The next slot should be hammered and scrolled for 30% WA/MA and main stat. The last hammer is the cash hammer, which is optional, depending on whether your ring explodes or not when trying for 18*. 

Referenced above, the aim of your first slot is to get +5WA (that’s the max), which comes from your chaos scrolls.

1. Scroll your ring with the Chaos scroll FIRST.
The following situations will occur.

IF CHAOS SCROLL PASSES ON FIRST SLOT, check stat for 5WA.
IF IT IS 5WA (cry tears of joy) , hammer for additional slot.
IF HAMMER FAILS, Clean Slate Scroll (DO NOT, BY THE LOVE OF GOD INNOCENT SCROLL ITto return failed hammer slot.
Hammer and Clean Slate Scroll till you get the hammer slot that passes.
Move on to Step 2.

IF IT FAILS, hammer to get another slot.
IF HAMMER FAILS (cry), innocent scroll immediately.

IF CHAOS SCROLL PASSES ON FIRST SLOT, check stat for 5WA.
IF IT IS NOT 5WA, Innocent scroll immediately.

IF FIRST SLOT FAILS, HAMMER PASSES AND CHAOS SCROLL FAILS AGAIN, innocent scroll immediately. Duh. 

IF FIRST SLOT FAILS, HAMMER PASSES AND CHAOS SCROLL PASSES, check stat for 5WA.
IF IT IS 5WA, Clean Slate Scroll to return the first slot that failed.
IF IT IS NOT 5WA (tilt), innocent scroll immediately.

Repeat above process till you get 5WA and your first slot back. (Or until you decide to give up on life)

If you get through this, the battle is pretty much half-won. I lost my ever-loving shit because I kept getting confused on what to do next.
Scroll with friends, it really helps. Trust me on this.

2. Once hammer passes, scroll your last slot with 30% scroll for WA.
You can do this via spell trace.

IF YOU FAIL, just Clean Slate Scroll (again, watch out for the innocent scrolls in your inventory) the slots back for you to scroll 30% again.
This is why you need a lot of spell trace.

Once you are done with everything above, you should have:
-No more slots to scroll (all slots available should have passed at this point, no wasted slots. It’s just two slots man, c’mon.)
-5WA on your ring
Basically a perfect traced ring.

Next, Star your ring till 17*. PLEASE BE CAREFUL NOT TO LET IT EXPLODE AFTER 15* as there will not be another kanna ring to transfer the potentials over. You only get one Kanna Ring per character.

I will not advise you to go 18* unless you have other rings and can replace this ring if it explodes.
I mean, I guess you could #yolo and purposely click for 18*. If you think about it, the destroy rate is 10-15%. By this time, you would have failed your 30% and 5% scrolls over a hundred times and you’ll know the odds. But seriously though, if you’re planning to go free to play, wait for a better ring to come by before going hamz on your Kanna ring.

Please note that this scrolling method only works for rings that alrdy have WA/MA on them. If you want to add WA/MA on rings without, you’ll need Premium WA scrolls that you have to buy with real money from other people. #pricey

Not that you haven’t spent money trying to get the scrolling items above already, but the point of this guide is to not spend as much.

You will however, have one more hammer that you can only buy with @cash. It’s like what, S$13? I would suggest only investing in this hammer IF you manage to 18* your kanna ring. No point spending $13 on something that you may cause explode, no point spending $13 on something that hasn’t reached end game potential.

If you go manage an 18*, I would go Premium WA scroll immediately for the sweet 4/5WA additional. Those are #pricey, but you’re trying to build something viable for your character, plus Kanna Rings can’t be traded.

Whatever’s left is your normal tier-ing of equipment from Epic to Legendary. If you go legendary, don’t settle for anything lesser than 21% main stat.

And… yah. I guess that’s how you do this scrolling thing.

Maple Story Vloging?

So two days after I’d written about Jubeat and mentioned the handwork I put into my studies (as well as semi-promise a post on my school work), I am writing about another long time game that I play, which is MapleStory. Well done, Cherie. Pat on the back, Cherie.

Settle down now, I haven’t been playing Maplestory, in fact, I doubt I’d go back to playing it anytime soon (if not at all), but I do keep tabs and run rain checks on the game. For example,

  • What’s the new patch about?
  • Any new hairstyles?
  • New cash items?
  • New job classes?

Recently (or maybe not), the level cap has gone up to 250 and the famous MrYaNdAo is no more the top mapler. Instead, it’s this guy called ‘PerfectLogic’. Aye, the guy who came up with the ultimate level rushing and expensive guide infamously known as, ‘The PerfectNight Guide’. Here’s a video of him proving that his method works on his Xenon.

After watching this I felt pretty demoralized because I’ve been on Maple Story for a good 6 years, and do I have a level 200?

Mainly because I have no determination whatsoever.

Okay, so it may have been the lack of cash. Or that my equipment kept exploding on me when I tried scrolling them. Evidently, I am very easily deterred.

Any-who, my god-brother showed me his videos on a long (and not so lonely) bus ride and ever since, I have been so amused by him, I can’t stop rewatching his videos.

You’d think that someone who spends so much time on a game would have no life whatsoever but guess what? This guy actually managed to make pretty decent videos and me laugh out loud on the the bus. He talks about scamming, how to be successful in maple without using money as well as help calculate ridiculous time frames to illustrate how long it would take for everyone to reach level 250. His latest Q&A was hilarious too.

He’s also pretty damn awesome because he’s a/the high(est) ranking player who actually has time to make and edit videos just to talk to us internet people. Here are a few videos of his Vlogs:

Many people thinks he’s a hacker but you have to give him some credit. Just because he can ‘down’ chaos Zakum in 19 seconds (I know, sounds ridiculous even when I say it, right?) doesn’t mean he’s automatically a hacker. Don’t forget, he has multiple level 200 accounts. Out of all that time he’s spent on Maplestory, he’s bound to have a good amount of cash saved up in there, right? Let’s not forget, his other accounts aren’t too shabby either, and he spends a hell load on @Cash in game.

Don’t even start with calling him lifeless, he does other things like attempt to socialize with us internet people through YouTube. And the above point supports my stand in what way again…?

Let’s not forget how he’s so calm about everything. So chill. Like ‘Lol alright, you think I’m a hacker, whatever.’ then goes back to being extremely zen. Nothing like those irritating megaphone-wars squirts.

HE ALSO SPEAKS IN CHINESE BUT I’M SO FOND OF HIS VIDEOS, I’LL READ THE SUBTITLES EVEN THOUGH I HAVE TO PAUSE AND REWIND ONCE IN A WHILE BECAUSE HE SPEAKS SO FAST IN CHINESE IT’S LIKE RAPPING AND THE SUBTITLES GO BY FAST TOO. 

Alright, I’m off to rewatch a few of his videos and for the record, I just finished my C-COM Major Project report!

Cheers!
Cherie (:

Maple Zakum run

My first ever Zakum run after playing Maplestory for 6 years. Not only did I only hit level 100 with the help of Big Bang patch this year, this is my first ever boss run. Like legit, everyone-used-to-talk-about-it, kind of boss run.

I went with my brother. He’s items are pretty godly so his damage is a given. Took down most of the arms for me. I only did on of the arms. Which is pretty pathetic a damage range, seeing that we are only 15 levels apart.

*shrug*

Anyways, it’s pretty impossible to take screenshot after screenshot of what was happening in-game so I took a video instead. How long it took me? I have no idea. I was too busy spamming potions.

I got a zakum helm too. I have no idea what to do with it cause my Scarlion boss help is 3 stats to all better than my current zakum helm. The helm isn’t even potential-ed!

Alrighty, I’m off to the airport to study. Will be bringing my laptop with me but will be studying seriously okay!

Bye-yah!

Cherie.

Demon slayer patch and new permanent cash items! :D

Hello! I’m back.

Demon slayer came out yesterday and my goodness, Maple is a lag fest.

I can barely play without disconnecting and everyone looks the same! Pale skin, wings… we even look the same!

All the maps are full because everyone is do the same quests. This gives everyone an excuse to map raid freely, which really gets on my nerves.

Which is why,

I am planning to only start training my Demon Slayer next week. This means that this week, I have to hit level 130 in Kuropyon. Only Four more levels to go!

Funny things that happened to me while I was playing in my Demon Slayer account:

1) I’m a guy. 

I play as a guy in my Demon Slayer. One, so I can marry myself in maple later on, two, being a shemale in maple is pretty fun and lastly, the demon slayer character in the video was a guy so it’s only normal.

2) I am a cat. 

Yes, I am. My demon slayer’s IGN is Kur0pin, to go with my other character, Kuropyon. Apparently, Kuropin is the name of a cat in the anime, Prince of Tennis. It happened when I was doing Slime PQ. I was stoning/lagging when the party leader said: ‘Cat. Barrel 4.’

I was really at a lost of what to do. I had no idea I was a cat at that time so I ignored him. Of course, Singaporean players get pissed easily and before I knew it, he was yapping at me, actually calling my IGN this time round. So embarrassing. It’s a good thing he doesn’t know me in real life. Because then I’d be a girl and do you know, for online games, a guy pretending to be a girl is fine but a girl pretending to be a guy is just plain awkward.

(一。一;;)

3) I’m a very nice guy and many girls want to date me. (ROFL)

This happened mainly because I was playing as a guy. I’ve been really nice to people around maple okay! Good reputation. I’ve been nice enough to share maps and guide people around maple.I actually spent 15minutes teaching some girl how to glide in her demon slayer and she famed me. Only 49 fame to go! Stupid fame cap. 

Because of this, I’ve been stalked around the Resistance town. Even the girls in maple, super thick skin. Either that, or it’s just shemale guys trying to prey on other guys. But I’m a girl so it’d mean that it’s still one boy and one girl, just that we swapped genders? I don’t know where I’m going with this but it’s still something to think about.

That’s about it. I didn’t play for very long. I’m only at level 38.

Anyway, with the new patch comes new permanent cash items!

I bought a few because my hands were itching. Here’s how I look like now:

Hehe. Yeap! I can’t wait till something nice comes out for Kuropin. If not, I’ll be dressing him in a blue bath towel.

(。・`ω´・。)/

Alrighty, I’ve got to go. I’ll leave you with something I saw when waiting to go for the random event today.

It’s a clock boss that some wild hunter caught.

BONUS PICTURES! (:

PYON!

BUBBLES 😀

All the people of SUBWAY. (:

Cherie.

Heartattack. Risk taking, never again.

I’m in school now.

They cancelled the morning lecture but I brought my laptop to school so it’s not that bad. Anyway, much has happened over the weekend. Besides the fact that I am now level 126, there are two other events that happened over the weekend in maple that had me screaming and squirming.

So it come to that time in a maple character’s life where being high leveled just isn’t enough anymore. You have to start scrolling your equipment. Which I am. I started with my Timeless Blooms, which I cubed and it turned out pretty well.

My level for my timeless is already maxed. The weapon attack didn’t go up very much but it’s a good thing DEX did. I made up with scrolling it with Equipment Enhancement Scrolls (EES), raising my weapon’s WA to 128. I’m pretty happy with the potentials though, very contented.

No. of cubes: 5

After scrolling my timeless, I moved on to my bathrobe.

As much as I’d love to take credit for scrolling this, I can’t. I bought it from the free market because I felt it would be cheaper than buying a heck load of scrolls and get demoralized when it fails or if my robe gets destroyed in the process. Don’t ask how much. It wasn’t exactly cheap but well… it was cheap. In a strange sense. I’m currently working on it’s potential. I know it’s currently epic but seriously, what so epic about these stats? I get it that it’s a 3 liner, but I don’t really need accuracy, STR or invincibility. Next time I’ll try for DEX. 3% at least.

No. of cubes: 1 (for now)

Another thing that I got potential on was my Magic Arrow.

Firstly, I don’t understand why it’s sold so expensive in the Free Market. I guess it’s because people don’t know that you can actually buy these at the Mercedes safe town for about… 550k? Seriously people, paying 3.5m for something worth 550k isn’t worth it. Of course you’ll have to spend money getting potentials on these babies but a normal potential scroll is currently around 2.3m in free market. 70% pass rate, you can get a perfectly good Magic arrow for 2.8m. That’s still lesser than 3.5m.  The 3.5m ones aren’t even potential-ed for you!

Back to the point, I think my potential on this is also very satisfactory. I don’t see much ATT+12 arrows on the market. Of course I’ve seen 3% ATT on boss but those are hella expensive and it’s only 3%,  what the heck. Let’s not forget the 10% chance to apply Lv.6 Poison when attacking. I think that potential is pretty cute don’t you think?

No. of cubes: None

I also started on my cape. It’s fine already actually.

I scrolled it myself! ^^ Potential-ed after the first try. I bought the cape when it was potential-ed because it was cheap not because I was too lazy to hunt my own. Probably the best thing that happened to me this whole month. 6% DEX +6DEX! Happiness maximum!

No. of cubes: None

Iet me introduce to you my earrings.

Pretty beautiful a pair aren’t they? Well, I am not proud to say that I bought them. Yes, I bloody bought them. Have you any idea how much they cost me? Only the rest of my money. Here’s the back story. Originally, I had a pair of rose earrings. The really pretty level 85 ones that all the old school maple pros used to use. It had a DEX potential of +6% but it wasn’t scrolled. I scanned the market for 3 days straight but I could not find one safe scroll. Safe scroll meaning, 60%. 70% scrolls have a 50% boom rate upon failure. 

So guess what I did on the fourth day? Itchy hand. 70% earring scrolls were all that I could find and they were going so, so cheap in the market. So I bought 3. I scrolled the first one, buffs on and jumping (they say it make your character luckier) and it EXPLODED. COULD YOU IMAGINE MY FACE WHEN IT HAPPENED? 

Well I know someone who would know, I was on webcam when it happened. I was screaming and whining for 15minutes straight. I decided to pick up the phone and dial my life line, my brother, who lent my 200m to find something else that was better. Which I did, and my GOSH it was expensive. I can’t even disclose the price. It hurts too much. I still owe my brother 200m though.

Let’s not talk about this anymore. It’s far too depressing.

No. of cubes: I bought it dammit.

Moving on to the last item that I got this week. My Mark of Narnia as I call it.

Yeah man. This pendant right here. The service wasn’t that expensive. 30m? Thanks to the guild iExtistancE. They do services really well, although my time slot was delayed by a lot because some asswipe tried to bargain for 20m instead of 30m. Anyways, to get to the start map itself, I had to go through this very confusing maze of portals which I got lost in numerous times but got used to after a while. The jump quest was a bitch though. You couldn’t take your own sweet time to jump this. It was all about timing. If you were to slow, you wouldn’t be able to out run/jump the totem pole, which dealt a damage or 55k upon touch. If you notice, my life is only 4k so it’ll be an instant death for me.

After dying say…5 times, I gave up and my brother who was watching me suffer offered to take over. He got it done in 15minutes. As expected of a level 200.

As scary as the PQ seems on youtube, it wasn’t very scary during service. It was just a lot of waiting.

Another scare.

Somewhere last week, I was freaking out on twitter. This was because I got bugged. Half way through Escape PQ, My timeless DISAPPEARED. Which meant I had nothing to use and my damaged dropped like crazy, not like I could do any harm without a weapon anyway. But I really freaked out, because that’s what I simply loved looking at while I’m camping for PQs. Its nice to look at an epic equipment okay, all glowing and pretty.

I thought I was robbed! I practically contemplated quitting maple for good. ROFL.

Well, good thing it was back when I relogged. If not I’d have been depressed.

Alrighty. It’s 10.15am. Got to run to my next lecture.

I’ll update on more stuff I scroll. If I have enough money to scroll.

Laters!

Cherie.
