Your notes should not contain anything too personal. Nor should hey contain pure anger or sadness. Your notes should be a general summary of your feelings, no demands or expectations. Again, this petition is to have our voices heard and does not guarantee change in any fashion. Posting blatently in this thread just to chat dimished the credibility of this petition, and there will be those who disagree, or just wish to be annoying and post anyway without signing. Do not rant or argue with them, place your signature and let everything be.
Do not post here if you do not agree. Do not post "I disagree". To disagree with a petition all you need to do is not sign it.
EDIT: Because this is a petition and I did state that if you disagree that you shou;d not post, I am hereby stating that if a post is made saying that you disagree, you hereby agree. If you did not wish to promote this cause, you should not mention it or post here, it only bumps the thread to the first page.
Since the "Chaos" patch, Dual Blades have been without Phantom Blow and have had to gather the book on their own. Of course the simple and easy fix is to go hunt for them yourself; however with DC hackers back on the rise and the massive amount of people who seem to 'camp out' at the Door of Zakum, it's not easy. Your other solution is to buy one from someone who's defeated Zakum; also not easy for the average person because their price is set too high for the majority of people to afford. Couple all of these things with the groups of Maplers who like to hoard various rare items, and the chances of getting a Phantom Blow skill book are very slim.
It appears that all Chains of Hell books were changed into Phantom Blow books, but all those who had the Chains of Hell skill were left without it, only to try and find its 'replacement' Phantom Blow. Yet all those who had Chains of Hell books, were given Phantom Blow books. This change doesn't seem fair to those who worked hard to gather Chains of Hell in the first place. A general consensus shows that when the Big Bang patch was released, warriors who had the skill Brandish and had it moved from their 4th job tier to their 3rd job tier, were given Intrepid Slash after the patch, and didn't have to go hunt for their book. The community is asking for the same treatment here; equality. As of now, it appears that possible days of waiting and hunting Zakum went to waste for those who had to gather their Chains of Hell book that way, and those who spent their hard earned mesos to get the book went wasted as well. This does not only hurt the faith of your amazing players, but smears a blank mark over their careers. As a community, we ask for a compromise.
From the Community of Maplestory.
