Ironman
Added Ironman job and Ironman mode, inspired by Ironman from Old School Runescape.
To create an Ironman character, create an explorer character and proceed with the dialog prompt you see as soon as you enter the game.
You must be a level 1 Beginner to advance to Ironman, as well as have a total Maple Legion level of 1,000.
Similarly to Ironman in OSRS, you cannot trade with others by any means. You cannot use the Free Market's trading features, and partying is disabled. Regardless, Ironman is able to perform all party activities alone, including boss raids such as CWKPQ or Boss Rush.
Ironman has a nice set of new, and buffed skills.
Ironman can equip all kinds of equipment without job limitations.
Ironman's damage scales off of STR mainly but may benefit from other stats according to the weapon you equip.
Ironman's skills have a max level of 1 and you gain a skill point once every 20 levels.
You gain 2 levels of Maple Legion per each level of Ironman.
Ironman gains HP on level-up similarly to Warriors.
Ironman automatically obtains level 3 Maker skill, and can craft all items available on Maker regardless of the job requirement.

Note: Ironman is an actual custom job and does not override ANY skill or job in the game, unlike the attempts of other game servers to add new jobs to the game.

Ironman learns the following skills:
  • Slash Blast - Ironman uses his abilities to steal a fu***ng skill from Swordsman. Attacks 15 monsters, dealing 1000% damage. Additional attack range is 500% as long as you hit any first monster.​
  • Teleport - Ironman's giga powers allow you to teleport. Range: 300​
  • Maple Warrior - Unleashes the giga powers of the ironman, to increase the stats of the character. +15% all stat for 900 seconds.​
  • Brandish - Ironman be like "hmmmmm today imma be a Hero my mans", quite literally. Attacks 5 monsters 5 times, dealing 555% damage.​
  • Glass Cannon - "it do be like that sometimes". Attacks 15 monsters twice, inflicting 1337% damage. Cooltime: 15 seconds.​
  • Smite Shield - A shield is placed in front of the Ironman, inflicting lots of damage to monsters. Attacks 15 monsters twice, inflicting 1000% damage. Cooltime: 10 seconds.​
  • Death Star - Ironman throws a giant star in the air to deal significant damage to monsters. Attacks 15 monsters twice, inflicting 1200% damage. Cooltime: 13 seconds.​
  • Giga Adventurer - The Windian Ironman gains the ability to burst all the monsters on the field. For 15 seconds, skills will not enter cooltime. In addition, all skill cooldowns are reset. Cooltime: 90 seconds.​

Note: Some of the showcase videos are not up to date. Certain skills perform a different amount of attacks per skill usage.

Equip Enhancement Scrolls
Equip Enhancement Scrolls are now added into the game, and they will provide your equipment pieces with additional stats upon successful star enhancements.
The success rate for the first star is 75%, and each successful enhancement further reduces the success rate by 5%. Success rate caps out at 10% and cannot go lower than that.
Upon failed enhancement, the star-force on the equipment will be drop by 1.
Not to confuse with Equipment Enhancement in the official game - in Windia, Equip Enhancement Scrolls will not destroy your pieces of equipment!
Additional stats gained from star enhancements are separated from flame stats, but they scale with the equipment's level requirement as well as the stats of the item.
The system applies stats on-the-fly, which means you can gain or lose stats from star-force enhancements if your equipment benefits from the additional stat scaling off of the equipment's stats, if you happen to be upgrading the item using star enhancements before applying scroll upgrades or item level upgrades on the equipment.
The Equip Enhancement Scroll can be obtained from Miu Miu The Traveling Merchant for 175,000,000 Mesos per piece.



The item's star-force enhancements are displayed visually next to the flame stat display:



Innocent Upgrade Items
As a new addition to the upgrade items family, we introduce the Innocence Scroll. Currently available at 20% success rate.
When applied on a piece of equipment, the equipment will be restored to its original state.
To obtain this upgrade item, talk to a pile of pink flowers in the Free Market. The conversion costs 250 White Scroll.



Cash Locker
The cash locker limitation of 120 items per locker was increased within Iron to 960 items, per community feedback on the change.
Internal optimizations have been applied to make this possible once again!

Vote Points Shop
We have noticed that our online user count did not tank very heavily. However, our GTop100 votes have.
We believe the main reason is due to the cash locker limitation, which is now increased once again.
In addition, we have new items for purchase from Agent W; to give players an incentive to vote for us again, as well as make paid features easier to access.

  • 24 Hour VIP Pass (15 VP) - Once purchased, your character can use all character VIP benefits for 24 hours from the moment you purchased the benefit.​
  • One-time Stylist Coupon (Untradable, 20 VP) - You obtain a coupon which can be used to change your style through Big Headward (the Stylist NPC) without having the Stylist membership. The coupon will be consumed upon use.​

Credits Shop
Due to a popular demand from users asking for new ways to spend Windia Credits, we have added new items to the Credits shop (Inkwell).

Chair Gachapon
We now have a Chair Gachapon which contains 209 new chairs, imported from GMS!
The Chair Gachapon only includes brand new chairs.
Not every new chair will work like they work in GMS due to v83 client limitations. This means you won't hear BGM played by chairs, and mounts/skills will not given by having certain chairs.
We haven't added text chairs (e.g. Yu Garden Savior) as you cannot fill in their text in v83.
Chairs which shift your character's position will not do that, as the behavior is not implemented in v83.
There are no jackpots, and each chair has an identical chance to be obtained.
You can use the Chair Gachapon for 5,000 Credits by talking to Inkwell.

You can view this gallery containing a few of the many chairs available!


@sok
You can now talk to Inkwell and purchase account-wide access to the newly added @sok command.
Usage of the commannd will automatically apply the Scissors of Karma effect to every eligible piece of equipment in your inventory.
Using the command will not consume any Scissors of Karma items, and you do not need to have them in your possession.

Star Protector Scroll
Inkwell now sells the Star Protector Scroll.
The scroll protects pieces of equipment from losing a star-force enhancement level upon a failed enhancement attempt once.
Any attempt to enhance (whether it is failed or not) will remove the protection effect from the equipment.
Protected items display [p] on their tooltip.
The scroll is sold for 4,000 Credits.



Golden Maple Leaf
Due to a high demand (and now due to Mesos having more value), we've added Golden Maple Leaves to allow trading mesos in high amounts.
You can purchase the item from Miu Miu the Traveling Merchant for 1,100,000,000 and sell it to any NPC shop for 1,000,000,000 Mesos.
