This is largely about the Madhouse, however, it applies to too many events in Maple, that have a part of RNG and limited efforts. Thus, also things like the Dark Lords MS Mesos of Darkness, Hunter's Club, SAO (although that you had a paid component), etc. An event needs to have a means to make sure everybody wins, provided they strive hard enough.

Examples for your Madhouse event: Allow going back in if reaching the Escape space, without consuming another pass. It's still possible not to find a particular page, even when allowed to roam the Madhouse eternally, but it gets vanishingly unlikely. Make it possible to buy any diary page you are missing by paying some (big) amount of coins.

Make the opportunity for getting a page out of the proper reactor go up with the number of attempts that you make, until it reaches 100% or until you get the page. So, if the prospect of a Test Tube dropping Page 2 starts out in 5 percent, then each time you activate a Test Tube it will go up by another 5%, until after 20 Test Tubes you are assured of getting that page. When you get the webpage the opportunity resets to 5 percent and stays there.

I'm certain other methods can be considered. The important part is, again : be sure everyone who makes a sincere effort can finish the occasion. But making us work hard and then fail due to random chance, is bothersome, enraging, and unfair. Real Life does that, but we play games to escape the temptations of actual life, to not acquire more of them.

After a couple frustrating efforts in the train and beating Shao, I have come up with a way to kill her for Zero which should lead to no death (it did for me, twice in a row,) plus a couple(somewhat obvious, but still potentially helpful)tips for escaping the train. Most of this depends on the ability "Time Holding" so in case you're too low to have that ability, this might not be as helpful, but you still might find a few hints.

Always visit the left as that's where the final car is along with the explosions you have to escape from beginning on the right side. Stay on top for so much as you can as there's less things to block you and allow the explosions to grab up to you.When you need to go down, simply jump close to the edge of the top of a car and you ought to get within the next one.Don't kill some of these critters, just repeatedly press your potions and walk past them.Make sure you've got your "Rewind" on if you're large enough to have it. Should you make a mistake and the explosions are in opinion, use "Time Holding" and attempt to get as far ahead of these as you can.

After the fight starts, attack her until she teleports. (She can teleport in front of you, sometimes, so if you have "Rewind" I do recommend having it on, just in case.) When she teleports, immediately press double up-arrow onto among those (clear, no enemies on it) preceding platforms. Wait till you hear four (4) explosions. That is when you know that there's no longer any leaf bugs right down under. (The leaf bugs will kill you inside one hit) Jump down and continue attacking. Repeat this until she starts spawning her giant fire charm.

When she starts spawning her giant fire charm, immediately press "Time Holding" and press double up-arrow to get along with one of the high platforms, like Cheap Maplestory Mesos before. Wait there till it finishes, and jump back down. Repeat the first four (4) steps until she's dead. I hope this is helpful to anybody stuck on Shao. I could not find some additional guides on this.
