MapleStory 2011 Summer Update!

On June 29, at 11 am, Nexon will have a conference outlining their 2011 Summer update for MapleStory! Obviously, Cannon Shooter will be a part of it, but what else will be released? The two mysterious new jobs? The thief and pirate balancing patch? The remaining heroes? Check back here tomorrow!

Edit: The conference is over! Check past the cut for all the information and things revealed!

Edit (2): As of 2:50 pm EST, I have updated this post with many more pictures and more information! Please read on~

The new MapleStory update is called MapleStory Legend!  The previously  known Cannon Shooter will be released on July 7. The Archer Hero’s name is Mercedes, and she is the Queen of Elves. She will be released on July 21. The Resistance warrior is called Demon Slayer and will be released on August 4!

The Cannon Shooter job is an extension of the Adventurer class. He uses a new weapon called the Hand Cannon. He is focused on power. As he is sailing with his crew Skipper and Riding, he is attacked by a Balrog and shipwrecked! But on that island he finds Stoner, who enlists him to fix the cannon on the island and send them home.

He also has a partner, Monkey! Monkey helps the Cannon Shooter out in a lot of his skills, and even buffs him up with things like Monkey Magic.

Glamour and elegance, the Elf Queen Mercedes has awoken! She uses a new weapon called the Dual Bowgun. Her play style is all about quick movements and attacks, and also combos.

She, like Aran, was cursed by the Black Mage and frozen in ice. Her town was put in a deep slumber as well. After she has awoken, she decided to travel the Maple world and defeat the Black Mage to lift the curse that is still set on her town.

At level 70, she gets her mount, the unicorn. At 120, it grows!

Mercedes resides in the new elf town Eurel. This town was shown during the Maple Idol event, a secret easter egg by Nexon!

Some of Mercedes skills include:

Mercedes is not a gender locked character, you can be both female or male.

The Demon Slayer will continue the Edelstein and Black Mage stories. He was a part of the Black Mage army but then his brother was killed by the Black Mage. In rage, he betrayed them and almost died. However, he woke up in Edelstein, and decided to join the Resistance to exact revenge upon the Black Mage and his army.

Demon Slayer has the Demon Force System. Instead of MP, the Demon Slayer uses Demon Force. The Demon Slayer uses one-handed maces (blunt weapons), and on his other hand is his Force Shield. I assume that it will be sort of a permanent equipment for this job. The glow of the Force Shield changes as the Demon Slayer advances.

He collects it by attacking monsters, and it appears in the form of glowing orbs.

This job is very special since you can customize his skin, face, and more.

The Demon Slayer does not have a mount per se, instead, he has wings, which he gets at 70 then upgrades at 120.

An example of Demon Slayer’s skills. Some of his skill names are:

  • Death Curse (gives a chance of instant death)
  • Dark Spin
  • Devil Cry
  • Death Throw

As part of an improved system, everyone will receive a permanent +20% speed, and also you can now hold 300 potions in one slot instead of 100. The NPC repurchase system will be added. The Profession system will be improved on, many more items will be available to make for all three professions. Also, all Victoria Island quests will be reorganized so they will provide good experience for those under level 30! I think this will lead to a revamp of every quest, so they will actually be done!

The Legend Festival, which comes with this new update. It includes many things. Every weekend there will now be 2x experience and Super Fight score. Two new worlds will be released, one on July 7 with Cannon Shooter, and the other on July 21 with Mercedes. They will receive 2x experience and drop. There will be a Hot Time event where everyone will receive in-game items, and maybe even some Cash items! Everyone who participates also receives tokens. Those who raise one of the new jobs to level 50 will receive a ring.

The new  1 + 1 event allows you to give experience from one character to another. You must raise one of the 3 new classes and get them to level 70. Then, you can copy their experience points to another character, or even add them to the same character you got them from.   There will also be a 2x increase in drop rate of equipment and use items. You will receive full equipment sets at level 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 50, 60, and 70. There will be a new event called 3000 Days. During this, MapleStory will celebrate its 3000th day. You can hunt monsters for Orange Mushroom Stamps to get the Maple 3000 Days Celebration Medal. On July 16 and 17, there will be a party held to celebrate it. Everyone will receive buffs and Legend coins. You can also hunt monsters to get the 3000 Days Celebration Box, and open it for the 3000 Days Celebration Cape.

The biggest part of the Legend Festival is the Shop of Legend. You can buy many different items here using tokens. A list of items:

  • AP Reset Scroll, SP Reset Scroll (account tradeable)
  • Various Advanced and Special scrolls
  • Legend’s Scrolls (15%/45%/75%), 36 different kinds!
  • Profession Recipes, 103 recipes are available, including the new items introduced with the Profession system improvement
  • Spirit Pendant, past event items such as Maple items
  • Legend Weapons, 73 items
Sounds really good doesn’t it? Especially that AP Reset! However, you must be thinking where to get tokens?
  • Raising one of the three new jobs
  • Participating in attendance checks
  • Clearing party quests/Super Fight/Monster Park
  • Participating in the Legend Festival events
  • Raising your profession skills
  • If you are an old user and you are returning

This is the new character creation screen. As you can see, all three new characters do not share buttons with their class counterparts.

There is a new system called Link Skill. You can raise each of the new jobs to give a new skill to your other characters. Pirate Bless, from the Cannon Shooter,  gives 15 to all stats, 5% HP and MP. Elf’s Blessing, from Mercedes, gives 10% experience and also allows you to return to Eurel whenever you want. Demon’s Fury, from the Demon Slayer, gives 10% damage to bosses.

Here are HQ pictures of the Cannon Shooter, Mercedes, and the Demon Slayer.

I am very excited about these new jobs! How about you?

    Haha, yes. It seems every time there is a major patch in GMS, KMS decides to go out and reveal their next big patch within a day.

    Adventurer Rebalance? Big Bang.
    Big Bang? Chaos.
    Chaos? What are you planning now, KMS?

    • June 29, 2011 at 2:19 am

      Hopefully the final part of Chaos will live up to its mystery. It will be a great chance for Nexon America to earn respect and not just be seen as a KMS copycat. Also it could be a great chance for Nexon America to screw up and make GMS players lose all hope in decent exclusive content.

    who knows what it could be knowing nexon it could be something thrown from random.
    but if by chance it was the thief and pirate revamp that would be pretty sweet.

    June 28, 2011 at 11:44 pm

    The unicorn mounts really killed it for me as a guy, I been waiting for the archer hero for over a year now. I dont mind the fact the hero is a sexy cute female elf archer, but seriously nexon “Unicorn” mounts for “Males”? -__- especially the non-gay males sigh…plz change the mount to a Bird or something =(

    • Alilatias
      June 28, 2011 at 11:57 pm

      Even as a girl, I agree with you. I knew the Archer Legend would be primarily represented as female (because just about every powerful archer NPC in the game is female except for Legor in Leafre, not to mention that Korea’s culture seems to have a thing for female archers judging from the Olympics), but those unicorns/pegasi are just taking it too far.

      I was hoping for an eagle or something. Right now, I’m dreading the cross-dressing henehoes that will likely have a field day with this class.

      • Karkain
        June 29, 2011 at 12:09 am

        Ugh, we have enough cross-dressing Henehoes. All we need now are cross-dressing Henehoes on unicorns. *facepalm* This is why I would’ve wanted it to be something a little more simple, like their mount just being a classic steed. Is that just too much to ask?

        • Yurifically
          June 29, 2011 at 2:03 am

          Um..You can change gender for her you know o_o. It doesn’t have to be a girl.

          • Karkain
            July 6, 2011 at 12:04 am

            The point was that since a guy Dual Bow would looks ridiculous, people would more likely than not pick a girl.

  18. Karkain
    June 29, 2011 at 12:05 am

    Demonslayer?! Frick, I better get running! He’s gonna be after me faster than Speed Racer!

    Anywho, Demonslayer looks a little flashy for a Warrior class, but oh well, I will simply make do as I master that class. I’m disappointed in the choice of weapons, as it appears to be mace. I kid you not, I have nearly every sword, spear, axe, and pole arm; but no maces. On a side note, when I saw the top left picture in the Demonslayer skill group, I thought of Gamma Ray’s signature face-thingy on their albums. But nonetheless, I am looking forward to it, and towards mastering it.

In one of the Aran’s past pictures I saw the hero wielding just a bow…Dual Bowgun just looks like 2 crossbows…..I’m dissapointed.. ):

    June 29, 2011 at 2:09 am

    NexonKR must have realized that with the exception of Battle Mages not a single one of the classes they’ve released since Aran has been original (Before people try to jump all over this post, slapping a Dragon onto an elementalist and calling it a hero isn’t original). All three of these classes have me interested, and I am looking forward to seeing more information on Mercedes and the Demon Slayer.

    June 29, 2011 at 2:14 am

    WTF. A fairy or elf princess riding a unicorn across the world defeating monsters? How bad can it get… 😦

  25. June 29, 2011 at 2:15 am

    Well well well, I must congratulate you on becoming Spadow’s successor. This topic released so soon really does put ahead of your competition.

    I expect to see lots of KMST content from you and don’t leave any bit of info behind. It’s those small pieces of the puzzle that make the big picture beautiful.

    • Yurifically
      June 29, 2011 at 2:32 am

      Ears look normal. I would assume this is something that would be changed before release.

    I never thought I’d like a class more then Aran. Then Demon Slayer came along. Damn you Nexon Eu and being so behind D:!

    Does Pirate Blessing / Elf Blessing / Demon Fury just add attack to other chars the more you level or do they have unique effects?

    Also did NexonKr mention anything about the storyline for Mercedes or Demon Slayer?

    • Doitean
      June 29, 2011 at 6:51 am

      Believe Pirate Blessing is the same skill Cannon Shooters get as a beginner it gives 15 to all stats and 5%hp/mp according to an earlier entry on this blog.

    Original my ass.
    mercedes = wild hunter, but instead of riding a jag, it rides a unicorn. Some kind of skills (both using a bow and using the mount)
    Demon slayer = Mid-boss ripoff. In Disgaea there is a character named Mid-Boss. He looks EXACTLY like demon slayer. For those that don’t believe me,

    same hair, same wings, same face.
    Cannon shooter = sair using a cannon

    So coooool!
    Mercedes looks so awesome!

    And I took a note on these last lines… 300 pots instead of 100, increase drop rate, and best of all – +20% base speed for everyone!
    It’s about time!

    will those 3 buffs from all 3 of the new jobs stack on ur account?

    • Max
      June 29, 2011 at 6:43 pm

      I think they will. However there’s no actual patch notes or anything about them, so for now, its basically just a guess. None of them give the same thing anyways so I see no reason why they wouldn’t stack.

    What weapon with the Demon Slayer be using? Axe/Blunt Weapon perhaps?

    • Max
      June 29, 2011 at 9:21 pm

      One handed mace (blunt weapon) is what I hear. And his shield is called the Force Shield, there’s no information about it but I assume its like a permanent equip.

  53. June 29, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    Kewl, and I think Maplestory Ripped of Demon Slayer of Grand Chase’s Dio, he’s a demon and he doesn’t use mana either, except he uses AP not “Demon Force”

    yo were do u get all these reference demon slayer being a warrior? when my first impression of his was mage, cuz his weapon is far from anything warrior.Unless some1 can speak korean here and explain the freaking conference ciz im dying here cuz from all the vids ive seen not once i saw the slayer wear anything warrior

    • June 29, 2011 at 9:16 pm

      it was a resistance warrior in the data…

        July 2, 2011 at 2:26 pm

        Aren’t One handed blunt weapons for Warrior?.. Just sayin’ -.-

    • Max
      June 29, 2011 at 9:22 pm

      In the wz files, his code corresponds to the Resistance class and the warrior type. Also, you can see in some videos that he has a ‘guard’ effect, meaning he must be a warrior (or he has the Holy Magic Shell buff on, but that’s different). And he’s a Resistance, so, it wouldn’t make sense to have two mages 😛

    its possible for it to be a cross breed between mage and warrior like battlemage its waaaay too flashy for a warrior, i mean explorer class alrdy has a sin but nao it has a sin and a db, in this situation being a battlemage in a resistance class and another mage in the same class, nexon can do anything to the classes

      Hey, we got our ridiculous Jump updates pushing us to top DPS in the game. I’d wager quite a bit that Mercedes is the reason why our Jump update was so ridicuous in the first place.

      That said, I don’t think Mercedes is going to outdamage Bowmasters at their own game. She seems like an extremely mobile ranged/melee hybrid archer with superb mobbing skill. I already main a Bowmaster, and I’m looking forward to trying out this class, since it’s exactly what I imagined it to be, complete with the Lightning affinity as well.

      Hell, I made up a class about half a year ago that seems to have the exact same playing style and Lightning affinity as Mercedes. (If you’re interested, it’s here: http://www.southperry.net/showthread.php?t=44197&daysprune=-1)

    June 29, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    There is a new system called Skill Link. You can raise each of the new jobs to give a new skill to your other characters. Pirate Bless, from the Cannon Shooter, gives 15 to all stats, 5% HP and MP. Elf’s Blessing, from Mercedes, gives 10% experience and also allows you to return to Eyurel whenever you want. Demon’s Fury, from the Demon Slayer, gives 10% damage to bosses.

    What level do you need to be to obtain these skill?

    • Max

          They’ve always been like this, haha. It’s sort of random when they’re available. We’ve only had them open twice, once when they came out for the first time, and second when the Return of the Heroes update came.

          Thank you! 🙂

      This winter. Think about it, last year, KMS had big bang in the summer and we got big bang last winter. Were like 6 months apart. So probably were getting the Legend update winter to Jan. 2012. If we get the jump update faster after we get our “exclusive” update from Chaos. Don’t worry it will come soon.
      OT: The monkey’s hair from Cannon shooter is priceless lol
