To be brutally honest, the game is so easy that you'll end up skipping a majority of the content.
Everything is a fraction of the time you'd spend in the past, and places are less memorable because of your limited time spent there.
Bosses are the only thing that will actually require some effort to learn how to defeat. But like everything else, you'll end up overpowering them with decent equipment.
The thing that made maplestory easy mode, is the potential system.
Enhancement Stars, Extra Scroll Slot Hammers, Potentials, Bonus Potentials, Sockets.
None of this shit existed back then. You can see that this fan alone provides 135k damage. Far exceeding the 2k of the past.
So if you intend to come back to maple, expect things to come very easy to you with minimal effort. There is no need for parties, you solo everything.
This may bore you very quickly, but some people keep playing regardless.
