MapleStory Aftershock Tomorrow Night!

9 03 2011

Ah!  The moment you all have been waiting for….MapleStory AfterShock!  Tomorrow night, Nexon will be shutting down MapleStory for a night of updating.  This update came way sooner than I expected…so I’ll have to work a little harder and get my blaze wizard up.

The wait is finally over and those being tortured by slow training can now head over to Von Leon!  Nexon is also opening the Evolving Ring Event 2!  Those of you that missed out on level 17 rings have another chance~!

And last but not least, 2x exp cards are being reintroduced!  The Sapphire and Ruby EXP cards will allow you an hour of 2x exp, but they become invalid once you gain 150%/130% within that hour.

GMS Spring Update!

22 01 2011

I am very, very excited to be writing this post! This might be the juiciest one yet :P. According to the Dev Blog on the MapleStory homepage, Nexon is promising a lot of things that are players will be demanding with absolute perfection. These “promises” include Von Leon (Yes VON o.o), guild revamps, and of course…ULTIMATE ADVENTURERS!

The Dev Blog explains about how Nexon dedicated to a patch a month, but how that isn’t working out. They say that their New Year’s Resolution is to include less patches, but still packing 2011 with the most exciting content yet. When all of this content reached KMS, it was posted by Spadow. Most of the information is still the same through GMS.

Guild Revamp! Yes, guilds are getting revamped. Creating a guild, emblem, and alliance will cost much less. Now, GPQ is not the only source of GP (guild points) for our leading guilds. Guilds will gain points for the leveling of guild members. Unfortunately, guilds will lose GP when a member leaves. GP can buy bonuses for all of the members. All of the following pictures are taken from Spadow’s Blog.
