Maplestory | KMS Post Black Mage DPM

With the release of Black Mage: Labyrinth, there won’t be any skill changes until the update after the Black Mage has been defeated if they follow the KMS timeline, which they probably will most likely. So, the last DPM chart made by 나제불 for the post black mage update is a nice indicator of how each class holds up to each other in terms of DPM. Original Source here.

As for using this chart to compare how the jobs in GMS stack against each other, it should really be taken with a grain of salt because the jobs skills and mechanics are not at all 1 to 1. GMS just copied and pasted the same stats for the new 5th Jobs skills as the ones in KMS for the patch notes even though there different in-game. In general, GMS balance between jobs should be a little bit better than KMS because we get the patches at a later date.

As always, any GMS exclusive classes such as Beast tamer, Jett, Kanna or Hayato are not included in this chart.

Notes with * mean it’s not fully translated, might not actually fully translate it because it’s a hassle finding the equivalent names in GMS. Just wanted to see the spread, which doesn’t seem too bad compared to previous charts which went above 200% multiplier.

Warframe | Fastest Way to Farm Solaris United Standing

Warframe‘s latest update Fortuna has added a new open world environment called the Orb Vallis on the planet of Venus. The city there, Fortuna has a resistance called the Solar United that are fighting back against the Corpus rule, players can complete bounties, trade in minerals or fish to gain standing with Solar United and gain access to their wares.

After reaching certain threshold of Standing, players can achieve their reputation with Solar United and gain accuse to their most prize wares such as parts to create a nailgun or to craft a personal moa.

I currently find mining to be the fastest way to obtain standing at the rate of 3k per 4 minutes. The strategy is to go outside of Fortuna and do a loop around the Fortuna entrance, there is on average at least 6 veins to mine from before having to go back to Fortuna to reset the mineral veins. It seems that atleast one of the mineral veins out their will net you one of the two rare minerals that go for 1k standing when traded in. Actual rates may vary but this seems to be the fastest and easiest in my opinion. Remember this is without any resource boosters and at worst, you can get 1k standing per run and that is about the same speed as just doing bounties on the highest difficulty. It also seems that buying debts from the ticker is much easier than doing bounties for debt-bonds which seem to have a terrible drop rate.

Currently the bounties at their highest difficulty give an average about 1k standing per 5 minutes but that can vary due to the different mission types. The benefit of doing bounties is that it rewards debt-bonds which are required as sacrifice to achieve higher standing with Solar United.

Fishing seems to be the slowest way to obtain standing as the very rare fish have a small timing window to spawn and their spawning location is way too varied and not always consistent.
