I've run FD 240 times Maple M Mesos for my own +15, I have never got horns in lube/rog or a kanduras, I am at 2k pet grabs without a epic, I have fine rolls and can clean up to cdev but the mill only comes back and even tougher with gear that is legendary, it took me so long to get appropriate stats that I do not even need to grind for longer legendaries.
Gemstones will be the absolute worst aspect of the rng, the percent chances are just ridiculous and the sum that can do them is demoralizingly minuscule, about 4 attempts a week which will likely all fail and everything you can do is simply grind treva or guild coins to get maybe 2-3 more attempts if you grind for the entire week nonstop that is just insane, socketing I believe its largely fine except for your 500k meso fee on obtaining accessories that's just too much in my own opinion.
It's a massive rng meso sink which will only drive you broke because you're unfortunate, the worst part is that stone are actually necessary for raids beyond cdev because of the absurd hp increase the supervisors obtained. When you push fail after neglect after fail to your own players they just get demoralized and quit, doesn't help
there is literally no point in getting better equipment, no satisfaction for anything you do, all you can do it only talk with friends, shame everyone is just asocial in this game so nobody talks, you never find an actual communal guild, they're all super attempt hard and very unfun, someone I know reached rank 1 in cdev clears for a while, got recruited in a try hard guild and that only made them quit. ?
Its funny, once I saw this announced and eventually MaplestoryM Mesos launching after teasing it for years, I was decided NOT TO PLAY. I connect and bot population and games. With bot counters that are inadequate and a skewed manipulation factor. Yet I was horrified as someone who'd completed beta localization, and got dragged into the match anyway.
