Clean Slate Scrolls have taken the spotlight of White Scrolls. They don't have the same effects, but they're popular and involved with many illicit transactions which can be traced back to hacking and duplication. They're sold in large amounts which gives cheaters the advantage to make billions if not millions of mesos, at the same time promotes players to purchase these MapleStory items due to their low cost and benefits to perfect their equipment. I know I'm a hypocrite, but I'm suggesting it for the health and continued growth for MapleStory to prosper.
What I propose to combat against the rising illicit Clean Slates:
1. The Removal of Clean Slates from the Elite System:
It's clear as day that botters have taken advantage of the Elite System from day one of it's release. They're able to farm large quantities of countless items, one of them being Clean Slate Scrolls. The removal of Clean Slate Scrolls as a drop from Elite Monsters & Bonus Stage Rare Purple Chests will hinder the gain of these botters.
2. Spell Trace Variant of Clean Slates Implementation:
Something else needs to be put into it's place if Clean Slates were removed from the Elite System. Why Spell Traces is because of it's allows diverse type of upgrades. Enabling this option allows players to use certain amount of Spell Traces on equipment with failed slots. Spell Traces can also be farmed by many other methods besides the Elite System which are way more effective in the long run.
I am well aware that the Field System also drops Spell Traces, and I would push for it's removal because of botters. However that is an entirely different conversation. I also understand that my suggestion may need some reviews from other players about their opinions of the current game and my suggestion.
