MapleStory – Merging Worlds?

9 04 2011

Hi maplers!  This is going to be a fairly short post, but informative nonetheless.  On the recent Dev Blog, Nexon spoke to us about differences between the overpopulated and underpopulated worlds of Maple Story.

This month, they plan to test a new system where players from two unpopulated worlds will be able to see each other in-game.  Boundaries will still be the same, the two worlds will remain two different worlds, but with more connections.  These connected include inter-world guild alliance, marriage, ETC.  Nexon also plans to give away a certain number of world transfers a month to people in overpopulated worlds. (I.E. Scania) and plan to restrict character creation to a certain number.

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.

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.
