Chryse in GMS

7 04 2011

As many of you may know, the Floating Island of Chryse came to Global MapleStory a few days ago. I’m here to inform those of you who haven’t heard and those of you who are too lazy to research this information. 😛

Long ago, the isle of Chryse floated peacefully above Orbis. Its mysterious core powered the isle, keeping it afloat and sustaining its inhabitants. Over time however, Chryse drifted away from Orbis, and all contact was lost.

Chryse is not what it was. The once-beautiful island is awash in an atmosphere of darkness and danger. You will find a town in danger of destruction from powerful monsters, but saving the town will only be the beginning of your adventure. Talk to Michaela about the terrifying dangers that now confront the islanders and the powerful monster that must be destroyed.

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.

I’m sure that many of you maplers have seen or heard about the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan the previous week and has caused distress throughout that country.  Nexon just announced that they will be donating 1.2 million dollars (around 100 million yen) to Japan.

There are many ways you can help contribute to Japan.  You can donate any amount of money to any of the following charities by clicking the names:

Nexon also allows us to contribute, within our gaming purchases.  Any nexon game card purchases between the 14th and 20th of March will be donated (100%) to Japan.

MapleStory AfterShock Patch Notes

10 03 2011

Hello again maplers!  This will be the last post before the arrival of MapleStory Aftershock!  Unfortunately, this post will also be bland and picture-less. ):  I’m not going to go through too much information, as I already explained a lot of it in:

Ultimate Explorer

  • All Cygnus Knight characters that have reached level 120, advanced to “Chief Knight”, and completed the Empress’ Grace Quest will be allowed to create a Level 50 Ultimate Explorer character.
  • You will only be allowed to create one Ultimate Explorer, no more chances will be given even if the Ultimate Explorer is deleted.
  • Dual Blades cannot be chosen as an Ultimate Explorer.
  • An extra character slot will not be given, so there must be on empty slot for the Ultimate Explorer to be created.
  • The Ultimate Explorer character will have the same skin color as the respective Cygnus Knight character.
  • Ultimate Explorers have a maximum level of 200.
  • Ultimate Explorers will receive Empress’ Might skill, an Empress’ fine set of clothing, and a Successor Medal.
  • Empress’s Might: [Max Level: 1] Allows the character to equip items that have a level requirement up through ten levels higher than the character, if the character meets the other stat requirements.
  • Empress’s Fine Set: Includes a hat, a robe, gloves, shoes, and a weapon. Talk to Empress Cygnus upon reaching Lv.70 to upgrade to the Empress’s Brilliant Set.
  • Successor: HP.MP +200 / ATT, Magic ATT+2 / Speed, Jump+10. This medal includes the name of your Cygnus Knight. For example, if Cygnus Knight Mihile created an Ultimate Explorer, that Ultimate Explorer would receive a medal named Mihile’s Successor.
  • Ultimate Explorer characters will receive a Cygnus Knight Skill that corresponds to their job.  These skills are Mihile’s Soul Driver (Warriors), Oz’s Flame Gear (Magicians), Irena’s Wind Piercing (Bowmen), Eckhart’s Vampire (Thieves), and Hawkeye’s Shark Wave (Pirates).  These skills gain a level for every ten times you level up.  The max level of these skills are 5.

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.
