MapleStory Players Can Celebrate Some Big Events Coming Starting Today!

By Suzie Ford on January 23, 2019 | News | 0

Now that the Black Mage has been defeated, MapleStory players are looking for the next "big thing". As of today, an update called "New Beginnings" sees the level cap to rise 275 after more than five years where it currently stands. In addition, there are new enemies to face off against, four celebratory events to play through and level 200 Genesis weapons to collect.

The four events include a number of new titles, gift boxes and more. "Each gift box grants better rewards based on a player’s Alliance Rank and also has the chance to grant an extra item, such as legendary weapons and equipment, up to 500,000 Maple Points, or damage skins."

  • Gold Richie's Lunar New Year Party will kick off on January 30th
  • Utah's Farm begins on February 6th
  • Choco Onslaught starts on February 13th
  • Dark Lords of Darkness Event also gets underway on February 13th

Players level 245 and above can relive valiant battles in Tenebris against the Black Mage as well as complete daily quests in these regions as they become permanently available. The game is also bringing new quests where players can obtain a weapon box containing Genesis weapons after defeating the Black Mage. Players can unleash the power of their Genesis weapons by completing missions to unlock their weapon’s full ability.
