  1. "Best stats" in general depends on the character. Generally speaking however. you want to focus on stats in this order: Crit Chance, Crit Damage, MP Regen. Follow that with a healthy mix of Attack and Special Attack, depending on the character. And yes, it is possibly to hit SS with a level 60 set of Gacha Armor, but it would require good cards to go in the slots. If you have any further questions, our discord is a great place to find support from Staff or the community.
  2. Congrats! Thank you all for participating in this event. Judging was hard (for a variety of reasons) but we have our winners!

  9. It works for Uno, however for other characters it appears to be broken, yes. Enid is aware and it has been fixed, but not implemented in to the game yet. It will be fixed in game next patch.
  10. Let me look in to this, using it for my Uno gave me 500 uses each.
  11. Forging 1 time will give you 500 of the special to use. We think this is a very fair price.
  12. Mari

    GCM Team Q&A!

    Welcome! Recently in our community discord, I asked you to ask us some questions, and here are the replies! Now, several of the same or similar questions were asked by many people, and several questions were things we have already answered in the discord, so I apologize if your question was left out. We will be covering Custom Content that is on the horizon, as well as former staff and food choices! With that out of the way, let's hop right in! Questions will be divided in to three categories based on everyone in the staff, the Dev team specifically, and the GMs and Moderators. Let's hop in! ─────────────────────────── o ────────────────────────── Everyone: 1. What are your Mains in GC? [kouyz]: There's a long time i stopped playing gc, but my main character is sieghart (pk), but i also like to use all mp characters, in particular mari (gunslinger), lass (d.a), sieghart (pk) and arme (archmage). [Adrian]: Sieghart [Enid]: It's a rivalry between Ronan, Zero, and Edel. I love the whole playstyle of all three characters and their colors are why I highly prefer them also. [Mari]: Mari, Lime and Elesis, but I wanna learn Asin and relearn Ley as well. [Lucifer]: lass, siegheart, jin, and anyone i wann play at the moment 2. Why is staff team so cool and good looking? [kouyz]: Good genes and Johnson's baby help. [Adrian]: Magic. [Enid]: Why are YOU ALL so cool and good looking? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) [Mari]: I sacrifice people and bathe in their blood. 3. Pie or Cake? [kouyz]: neither. [Adrian]: Cake (And this isn't a lie) [Enid]: Pake. [Mari]: Pie. Always pie. If I had a choice between dying and never eating pie again, I'd stab the person trying to take pie away from me. [Lucifer]: why not both ? 4. Is being a staff member for GC a job? Does it pay? Would it be a part-time or full-time job? [kouyz]: It's more like something that I have fun doing. It's not a full-time job cuz im a bit busy with my personal life (family, university), but always i get a free time to focus on a new system or stuffs, i tend to spend at least 20 hours doing this, until i get the work done. [Adrian]: I take it as a friendship, if i get repaid for it or not doesn't matter, and i work for it when i receive any job [Enid]: It's not truly a job, if anything it's more like a hobby you can take on. Depending on your exact position you get paid but those who slack more than likely get nothing, if you want to join for payment then it's best you don't join at all. [Mari]: I work for free, but if Kouyz/Rain wanted to pay me I wouldn't say no. As for actual time, it is sorta full time for me. If I'm online, I make myself available to help out. [Lucifer]: you have to i mean its alright to joke from time to time but u cant let it get out of hand. I dont get paid nor do I want to tbh; I enjoy just helping people and banning stackers/hackers. 5. Where did Rivia go? Everyone: Personal life got too crazy for her be both GCM staff and deal with IRL stuff. There is no bad relationship between us, however. 6. Why is GC Madness called "Madness"? [kouyz]: Because when we started working with gc, it was a completely madness (just imagine having to deal with all kog bugs coding in assembly only), and also the name sounded cool. [Adrian]: Because this name is cool [Enid]: Personally, I got no clue. I just assume it's because the future of Madness is pure madness (in a good way!) (/◕ヮ◕)/ [Mari]: Sh*ts crazy, yo. [Lucifer]: cuz your stuck with us <3 ─────────────────────────── o ────────────────────────── Dev staff: 1. What are you currently working on for the next big update? [kouyz]: Hmm, basically im working on a custom client which will allow us to change and implement new custom things to gc again, like kog used to do, but for that i have to remake most of things implemented from season eternal to season 5 from scratch, like pvp options, gacha, dungeons, megaphone, loj, new interface and a lot of other stuffs (that's what i've been doing these months). This client will also allow us to fix some mess kog did with their code and fix common exploits like stacking. 2. What are your general plans for custom content? [Enid]: Well, if you've seen me type around in Discord you know that we're taking things nice and slow. We believe that rushing content will just cause new bugs, new glitches, and be a total mess. Our objective right now is our custom client and once we're finally on it, we plan to begin teasing our first official custom Event Dungeon (which has been in the works for over 3+ months) and start the true 'madness' (heh) from there. The possibilites are endless and we definitely don't have any plans to stop soon, we have new characters, continents, systems, jobs, etc all in our plans for the future and hope that with time, we will eventually implement them all. One of the biggest concerns with new skills would be finding someone to voice it, which is hard because we can't just go ask the official actor/actress! (Or can we?) 3. Is it possible to create a new character? Yes. 4. Is it possible to add completely new jobs for characters like Lime, Asin, Edel, Veigas, and Uno? Yes. 5. Will we ever get shared inventory again? [kouyz]: Definitely not. Actually im able to do that, but the database structure would've to be changed again, due to that we would have to delete most user data that had already been saved in the old structure. [Enid]: It's a low possibility that will ever return again. At first, I believed that separation was a terrible thing (don't get me wrong, it still is) but the content we have planned for the future and our Crest Revamp (which will overhaul every single crest in the game to provide an RPG-type element into the game) is highly better for separation as it removes that idea of having a Lv. 1 run around with a crest such as the one from Wizard's Labyrinth and all in all, opens the doors for us to improve upon all individual content. As of now, we're working on making item movement between characters be smoother and easier to do and hope to eventually have a way for you to move items from character to character without Warehouse.. all in due time. 6. What new event dungeons/regions are you planning on adding? Details? [Enid]: > . < The event dungeon details are a secret! But I will gladly leak one detail; it's the home of someone in the Grand Chase. As for regions, we're planning to expand upon Archimedia further (the eastern side of it to be precise) and get the lore going from there, we already got story written starting from the aftermath of Tower of Disappearance and the mode of transportation so it should tie up quite nicely! After that, things get a bit more complicated.. we plan to have more continents in the world map of Aernas and later possibly a way to enter a completely new dimension (such as the Underworld) with its own continents, dungeons, and so much more! 7. When will the Auto Unseal Button be added to Gacha? [kouyz]: The auto unseal is already implemented on our custom client and will be released soon, im just improving and updating some old libs and stuffs to make our client have a good performance (and fix the fps drop) 8. For balance changes instead of just damage increase ever gonna make certain skills have bigger AOE or adding different properties making certain skills freeze,burn,suction and etc? [Enid]: The damage increase was an introduction to what we can do, it was also a learning experience for me who was studying all the functions available which would be important in the future for creating attack/skills or revamping a attack/skill entirely. Right now, our next rebalance will be Combo Attacks for dungeons and once we're all set in our, ... custom client, we'll begin looking into a possible renewal of Lire's 4th Job, Nova, and improvement/renewal/revamp of many existing skills for many characters! 9. Are you planning on ever making your own revamps of other characters or changing existing ones to make them better? Like Ronan or Mari's revamp? [Enid]: Oh for sure! As I said above, Lire's 4th Job, Nova, will be our first official custom revamp for a job. Eventually, as time goes by and we notice that a character just isn't working anymore with their current kit, we will give them a full on revamp/renewal on the scale of possibly Ronan! With a revamp comes new cut-ins, skills and so much more, so it's quite an exciting thing to always look forward too and we obviously hope the community can pitch in their ideas for when we do one as we want to make sure that the idea/opinion of players are all heard and we can't always do it by ourselves! 10. Are there plans for custom IS skills to be added? Will Uno get a skill tree? [Enid]: As of now, the only character to be getting a custom IS will be Rin (specifically something Twilight-oriented) and a few particle improvements for her original IS, eventually we might look into giving 2nd/3rd/4th jobs a second IS, but it's all in the clouds now but we definitely hope to have something out soon. Uno will not be getting a skill tree for a while, similar to "custom content" we do not want to rush it and take our time with this, and as I stated above, somehow getting the voice for skills and such will be quite difficult. 11. What is your main focus of what YOU want to add into the game the official server never had? [kouyz]: Well, that's basically the same question as before, but we have plans to add new minigames and improve some old things that kog never revamped. I also have plans to make a new pvp game mode and improve the pvp options. ─────────────────────────── o ────────────────────────── Mods/GMs: 1. What sorts of events do you plan on running? [Adrian]: Fashion contest and find the GM maybe, we are open for suggestions too, sooo fell free to suggest anything. [Mari]: I'm going to be running a fashion event pretty soon here, and I want to make a speed-running event, I just gotta learn how to make it happen... [Enid]: I don't really control events but I think we plan on Fashion, Trivia, PvP, Screenshot the Word, Forums, etc. We're just trying to get everything in order first. [Lucifer]: In the near future I want to be able to do events that winners get a set of their choice, maybe even old sets for some events. 2. Can we have GCM pvp tournament with prizes soon? [Adrian]: It's impossible to check if someone is using illegal tools like macro and etc on tournaments, but maybe on the future we can host one, i will leave it to Kouyz. [Mari]: What Adrian said. We want it to be 100% fair, which we can't guarentee right now. [Enid]: Before we do tournaments, we want to begin shipping out some daily PvP missions and improve the foundations of PvP and simply get the gears for it running again. But yes, when we're ready then you can expect a tournament with prizes which we hope to go as far as 'phyiscal'. [Lucifer]: Of course. 3. What was your reason for joining the team? [Adrian]: I really need it...?, uh...well...i just like to work with this game and received a invite, nothing more [Mari]: To get la- I mean, because I deeply enjoy the game and wante dto aid in the growth of the community. Plus, I had experience through my guild and IRL customer service experience. [Enid]: Eh.. it's a bit complicated. I'm a mega Grand Chase lover, I came to madness with the intention to simply play and have fun and see how far they can go. I was originally the first Lime to cap on Madness (RIP Sleep) and decided to contact the owner, Kouyz, to see if I can help with anything and it just so happened that I had a knat for working with GC scripts. He gave me a choice whether to join the team or not and I took it and here I am, I mostly joined to hone my skills and simply work for the game I truly love so much. Extra: For those who don't know my exact role in the staff (Scripter), I am the one who controls most of the content available in the game and provides most of the casual bug fixes, while Kouyz and RainMaker deal with the more bigger things that I usually can't do. For instance, I handle everything in the K-Ching Shop, I handle the rotations in the game such as event dungeons, mini games, sets, etc. I also work on the drop tables and am the go-to man for suggesting items to add/bring back. I fix bugs such as a monster not dropping, a mini game having wrong rewards, a dungeon not letting you enter or anything trivial like that (though I play a huge role in the fact that Madness has a lot of bugs fixed that are not fixed in other servers). Kouyz/RainMaker deal with account problems, database issues, host problems and anything BIG like that, so if you have issues with anything like that, hit them up. :V [Lucifer]: My GC experinces was dead sadly, but I found a new one from just helping people and trying to keep the game alive. 4. Is Mari a girl or a boy? [Adrian]: Professor Oak Intensifies [Mari]: Who cares? Buy me dinner then we can talk. [Enid]: Well, Mari is a girl but I am not aware of [MOD]Mari's gender. [Lucifer]: All im say is Mari's mine c; ─────────────────────────── o ────────────────────────── And that's it for now! We will host more Q&As in the future as more questions arise that deserve to be posted in such a manner! Thank you to those that asked the questions and thank you to the staff for putting up with my bullsh*t! Cheers! -Mari
  13. Welcome to Grand Chase Madness! Introduction Grand Chase Madness first launched on March 20th of 2017! Region: International Host Location: Dallas, TX Time Zone: Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) We here at Grand Chase Madness are dedicated to bringing you the best experience possible playing this beloved game and pick up the game from where KoG left it off. This guide will be a summary of who we are and provide you with the information you need to help you along your way. Important Note: If you have any questions or want to leap in and join the community, we advise you doing so by joining our Discord Server HERE. Our community is most active on Discord and is where all the good stuff happens! If you join in, feel free to introduce your self and don't hesitate to ask any questions! Server Information We are a Season V EP3 server which means we have all of the latest content available in Grand Chase such as: Uno the Bloodless Dimensional Door Tower of Disappearance Land of Judgment And More! Our Rates: EXP - x1 (This is submit to change in the coming days) GP - x1 (This is submit to change in the coming days) But do not fret about our rates! We provide you with a Queen's Jewel and even a free jump to Level 70 when you first create an account! With Dimensional Door you can hit 85 in literally a couple of days of dedication from 1! Our server relies on the community's voice to keep the wheels rolling and things updated. For instance, our Coordi Gacha is entirely determined by the community via. a poll which we put up shortly after a gacha rotation in which players can vote for what they want to see next! You will be able to find the poll usually in our Discord's #announcements channel or on our official Facebook page! We also have a rotation in our cash shop/hero shop that rotates monthly with a brand new set of costumes and wings to allow those who can't cash to at least have a chance to acquire some premium items! As a benefit for playing on the server, you can stamp your attendance once a day and receive a total of 60 VP, VP being the real money currency used to buy premium items in our cash shop! It might not seem like a lot, but we have revamped the prices of almost all items in the store to appeal to the daily VP and donation rate so more than likely with a couple of days of waiting you should be able to afford most of the low cost items! We are NOT Pay To Win! We always try to provide both GP/CASH players with options to keep both side equal. We also removed warehouse restrictions on 99% of items so you can move pets from one character to another! All this without a cost! But that's just the tip of the iceberg, if you want to see what we have to offer then you'll have to download and see for yourself! New Player Rewards When creating an account, players start out with a bundle of goodies to help them on their way, these goodies include: 3500 VP (Our shop has been adjusted so most things cost less and usually are available for free during some events) Queen's Jewel (1 Week) Skill Key (x1) Weapon Change Key (x1) 4 Free Character Slot(s) 1 Free Character Jump to Lvl. 70 (Consumes 1 Slot) Madness Support Box (Read HERE for more information) Additional items and Special Event Missions are sent through our mailbox as well! Virus Information YOUR ANTIVIRUS MAY DETECT THAT GRAND CHASE MADNESS IS A VIRUS IT IS NOT Grand Chase Madness relies on a heavily encrypted file for server and game security, most Antivirus' will detect this and Falsely Flag it as a virus. Once you download Grand Chase Madness, it is advised you add the Game Folder to your Antivirus' Exceptions list. If you are unsure of how to do so, come to our discord and we will lend you a hand! You can also search guides online on how to add folders to your exceptions list depending on your antivirus. In the near future we will be attempting to remove the false positive to prevent players from having to add an exception or deactivate their antivirus. FPS Issues and Fixes Thanks to Grand Chase being an old game there was bound to be FPS(Frames Per Second) issues on some computers using latest software. If your game is choppy or slow, it most likely is because of these FPS issues(Tap F6 to view your FPS). We have several fixes you can try to solve these problems: d3d9.dll (Place this in your Grand Chase Madness folder and launch the game) Reinstall your Graphic Driver (It temporarily fixes it for a couple of people) Restart your computer (If your FPS is usually 60/60 and suddenly is 40/60, restarting might help) We will soon be making internal changes to the client to hopefully permanently solve all FPS issues for all users. For now, please bare with us and try these fixes until we work out a permanent solution. Character Rebalance Here at Grand Chase Madness we overhauled all characters to make them viable for late game PvE(Dungeon). Our rebalance only affects skills for now but combos will soon be affected leading to brand new combos/skills being made in the near future! Soon enough we'll touch up on PvP(Player VS. Player) but make sure to be careful while doing so without causing huge problems. A full list of all the changes can be found HERE. Future of Madness This is just the beginning of what we have to offer. We are hoping to implement brand new content into Grand Chase Madness such as new jobs, new characters, new systems, new continents, new dungeons, and so much more! We are growing as a community and hope to get bigger as time passes and hope for a bright future for Grand Chase Madness. If you would like to assist in the development of Grand Chase Madness as a whole then go on over to this thread and apply for a staff position: Have any questions or concerns? Come talk to our moderators and game masters at our Discord! It's the quickest and easiest way to reach us and also the best way to make friends and get all the help you need! ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ We promise we don't bite ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ Cheers!
