Coming back after a very long break

So I decided after much debate that I'm going to start playing Maple again, I know I shouldn't but it's too late now.
There may be a few people left here that remember me but the majority won't, I'm looking for some friends and quite possibly a guild in Bera.
If you want to add me then either post here or add my character; Medou.
Oh and for reference, my old character was called Chikkon.

I've got a level 51 and seem to be doing fine, I didn't start unfunded either, not rich but not poor.

I don't know what the fascination with damage is, since the only reason to get gear is to level faster, but you level so fast now that you can get to like 150 in under 2 days, so there's no real point in the gear because there's so little left to do at that point, except for bosses.

It is pretty ridiculous how fast you can level up now, I remember playing back in the beta days and it was such a grindfest then. They now seem to just hand you exp.

The biggest complaint from players before Big Bang hit was how long it took to level up. Here's a pie chart Nexon made which shows what players wanted the most from Big Bang and onward...

Wow, I remember people being unhappy about how long it took to level but it still didn't stop any of us playing it.
It just seems to have gone from one extreme to the next, I don't mind as I don't have as much time to dedicate to it as I used to so it still feels like I'm making progress even if it is only a few hours progress.
