MapleStory players will have another character to check out with the arrival of "Luminous", a character that wields both Light and Dark magic. According to lore, Luminous is the only one who was successfully able to seal away the Black Mage, though not completely unscathed.
Players looking for a powerful character will enjoy Luminous and both his Light and Dark powers. As he garners more strength through practice, his skills become more impressive and he is able to better control the darkness within. New skills that are available to learn and use include Reflection, a skill where Luminous emits a powerful arrow of light that splits when it hits enemies to deal splash damage; Apocalypse, which opens the Abyssal Rift under enemies to flood them with void energy; and Death Scythe, where a scythe-toting reaper comes down to destroy enemies.
To help players level Luminous, MapleStory will feature a 2x drop and EXP weekend this weekend.
