MapleStory Jump! – Counterattack of the Blade

3 04 2011

Already?  A new set of updates is coming to KMS MapleStory.  This update, known as MapleStory Jump!, won’t be as large as the Chaos and Big Bang patches, but important and interesting nonetheless.  If you read my last post about the reconstruction of warrior classes coming soon in KMS, well that is the first part of MapleStory Jump!  You can read this blog post by clicking here.

As stated by Spadow, MapleStory Jump!  will come in three phases, just as the Chaos and Big Bang patches did.  Translated from Korean, these three segments are known as: Counterattack of the Blade, The Spell of Awakening, and The Arrow of Speed.  These three patches will occur in KMS from March to May.

The Counterattack of the Blade will be the reconstruction of the warrior classes.
