Maplestory Justice Update!

It is confirmed, the next update is called MapleStory Justice! The new Thief and Pirate images look very cool! But who is that character in the middle?

On December 15, the Beginning of the Counterattack, the Thief and Pirate update will be released. And even more exciting, on December 29, the Phantom (Thief hero) will be released! On January 12, a new town called Aswan will be released~

One by one, the Black Mage’s army has been making themselves known, spreading the dark forces of their master. Through the catastrophe and chaos, through the misunderstanding and distrust, the reborn thieves and pirates will emerge spectacularly! And at the same time, another hero will be shaking the Maple World, freeing towns from the grasp of the Black Mage!

The trailer has been uploaded, as well as a commentary about its skills! Like always, thanks to Spadow! Please look past the cut for it~

This is the trailer! Subtitles thanks to Spadow~ Just press the CC button to see them!


At the climax of the 2011 Spring update, the classes whose names were the only things left unchanged! The Thief and Pirate return, stronger than ever!

Starting at 3:00 in this video, it begins to talk about the Thief Phantom. I will be talking about this part of the video, so looking at the skills may help you understand!

Phantom is one of the five heroes sealed by the Black Mage. Hundreds of years ago, he was a famous thief, he even deliberately left traces to people who did not even know he was there. The people called him the Phantom.

Due to the death of a close friend, he went on the path of the hero. He fought with the others and sealed away the Black Mage, but just as they were frozen in ice, so was he. And now he is revealed! With a triumphant smile, confident attitude, and the elegance of the past, he fights to defend the Maple World!

Phantom has high evasion and critical chance! It is a combination of the Thief concept and many unique skills and system~ His weapon is a new one, called the Cane, and the secondary Cards. Attacking monsters grants you more Cards and you can then use more skills!

This is the home of Phantom, the air ship Crystal Garden! It was the ship shown in Inkwell’s Secret Diary! It looks really nice! Those are the NPCs in the ship that help out Phantom.


When creating a Phantom character, you have a choice between two faces and two hairs. The top are for males and the bottom are for females.

This is the Phantom‘s mount! A car? He’s so cool!

The talent of the Phantom Thief is that he can use skills from other characters in the same map! How exciting~ He enters Steal Mode and chooses a character to take a skill from. The Cane then turns into a weapon from that class!

Phantom uses something called the Card Stack, and every critical attack recovers cards! When the Card Stack is full, you can use the skill Judgement, which consumes all the cards in the stack and chooses a random card and gives you a buff that corresponds to that card!

This skill is super cool, its called Phantom Shroud and allows Phantom to quickly move around the map without being hit! You just need to press the arrow keys in the direction you want to go in!

This skill, called Soul Steal, allows Phantom to steal buffs from a monster! In the video you can see he takes the Armor buff from Ani!

These series of skills are called Breeze Cart, Phantom Charge, and Twilight! They connect with each other~

This skill is called Ultimate Drive, it pours consecutive attacks on the monsters in front of you.

Tempest of Cards is a skill with a gradually increasing range!

Phantom also comes with a skill called Return of Phantom, which lets you return to Crystal Garden. He also has a Link Skill! It’s called Deadly Instinct, and it passively increases your critical chance.

On January 12, a new area will be added. This is the underground city that disappeared, Aswan. It was rumoured that a ghost haunts the town, so no one went there.

This is the Black Mage’s Army’s General, Hilla. Hilla is the one who controls Aswan, will Maplers have to fight her?

Content that affects the entire account will be added! For example, a world-wide Link Skill!

There will be simultaneous cooperation and competition between worlds! With both old and new methods of battle!  Experience special benefits~

Finally, there will be a Map Navigation system, where you can choose where you want to go and the game will guide you there! There’s also a Simulation system that uses your characters. Finally, bosses like Zakum, Horntail, and Van Leon will become instanced!

I’ll try to add in some information about Phantom’s storyline and Aswan’s storyline tomorrow~!

            Actually, the Pirate Hero is the opening and closure to the Black Mage concept. His name is Testonen and he is Kyrin’s father. Here is the video that Nexon made back in 2008 when Pirates first came out:

            Besides, wouldn’t common sense say that Demon Slayer guy’s brother would have to somehow be 500 years old?

        May 13, 2012 at 12:54 am

        Demon Slayer is not a maple legend, he is a Resistance classed hero, who failed to kill the black mage, due to his lust for revenge after his close friend was killed. He was not sealed in ice, he was sealed inside an egg, and hes is a warrior. He is not a legend, demon slayer was evil to begin with as a black mage general.
        The real pirate legend is Luffy, unfortunate for the name.

        • trololol
          June 14, 2012 at 8:18 am

          wrong, Demon Slayer was an ex-general of the black mage, the other generals was planning a attack on leafre, where Demon Slayer’s family live in, the black mage promised not to destroy leafre, but once he got to leafre, it was in ruins, his family was slaughtered, thats how he wanted to take revenge

          July 1, 2012 at 4:59 pm

          Luffy is a fake name. The MAGICIAN Hero, which has already been released in KMS, is Luminous. A magician who uses a balance of Light and Dark spells.

    lets wait and see if its worth it
    and i hope those arent its actual skills(the hurricane and the heavans hammer) maybe they are like skills you CAN obtain
    and lastly whats happening on the 12 of january?

      they can copy someone’s skill as long as they are in the same mapas tat mean no need for bishop anymore just find a afk one and copy hs

      • Happiness
        December 8, 2011 at 5:43 am

        Which bishop would actually be afking at the RIGHT map? And if you wanna bring your bishop there, that just defeats the whole purpose, but yeah, nice tactic xD Especially now since HS gives 150% exp solo

        • elqlosecond:D
          December 8, 2011 at 10:36 am

          I guess you have to be in the same map, so probably if there is a bishop, you will find his entire party there.
          Also it may be for a limited time only, so even if you change channels the buff wil expire.
          and lat thing, it also may not be possible to steal ALL skills, it just shows hurricane and heaven hammer, so it might be just skills that ressemble that class (ultimates, etc)

    i need translation does that mean justice can use other skills depending on the card he flips so he can copy moves from bm, sin, db, and so on O_O it just blew my mind.

    • Happiness
      December 8, 2011 at 5:55 am

      First, i think you mean Phantom, not Justice. Phantom is the Thief Hero and Justice is the name of the update.

      Phantom has the ability to steal a skill from other characters in the map when he enters Steal Mode. Do you see the two dark pictures focusing on a character with a sniper crosshair after “This is the Phantom’s mount, a car? He’s so cool!”? That is steal mode and you can select another character and “steal” a skill from their skillbook that lets you use that skill.

      What’s unclear is if you would steal that skill at maxed level or according to the skill level in that character’s skill level. This skill probably will be nifty since you can steal a MW30 from other players (If you steal according to their level) so you won’t have to buy the SB. 😀

      The Phantom Can Steal Skills from Explorers ONLY. Excluding: Dual bladers, Cannoneers, ect. So he can only Skill steal from Explorers that are magicians, Bowmen, ect.

      The Phantom can Only Steal a certain amount of skills per skill called “Talent of the Phantom theif I, II, III, IIII, V.” you can Only Steal Certain Types of Skills EXcluding Certain buffs that don’t affect the entire party.

      The Phantom is NOT OP (thank god). If you YouTube The phantom and see its damage at lvl 200 or what ever u want it is Ridiculously Weak!

      As for the Theif/Pirate Revamp, I think Battle ship and The transform skills are gone and stuff in a trade for new skills. (i don’t like the idea of that!). The Theives have been Revamped the LEAST. i think their gaining more than their losing.

      I have ONE question myself. Does the Theif/Pirate Revamps effect the Phantom in anyway?

      • CloakAndCane

    I honestly like the new job >_<. It has an interesting new system. I thought battle mages were lame till i played one and now its my main :P. The skills are flashy and nice :P. I can't wait till this comes out on GMS probably next year. But by how fast Nexon is putting up updates at the moment it may come by spring-summer.

    Lol at all the people complaining about it copying other characters abilities, you do realize that’s only ONE of his skills right? o_o
    I mean seriously it’s like every time Nexon gives us something new fresh, and exciting the spoiled American kids will complain about every silly little thing they can find, without even giving the new content a chance, absolutely pathetic.

    Also ROFL at the people saying Luffy sucks, yeah the main character from the number one series in Japan who just got a huge upgrade sucks… American idiocy never ceases to amaze me ¬_¬

    Anyways Phantom looks kind of complicated but a heck of a lot of fun, I can’t wait to play as him.

    I REALLY like it how the thief hero is neither NL or Shad. Instead, he is completely different! That is so awesome. I think this is the first hero I am actually excited about as the past Hero’s were too similar to the adventures – which gives me no real reason to play them. Granted, Aran and Mercedes was different from warriors and archers in many aspect, but I feel like it wasn’t distinct enough.

    However, this new class just seemed really cool in ever aspect. This completely caught me by surprise! I hope Nexon will continue to innovate the new classes and Heroes as I am very tired of Copy and Paste skills with different graphics. Noting innovating about it at all.

    Woah, I’m stunned by the Justice update.

    1) The second update in KMST on Pirate/Thief skills was a good one although it was just mostly decreased MP usage. Hope nothing shocking comes out when they release it in KMS.

    2) Phantom, Thief Hero. Nexon did a GREAT job, solving 2 most common complaints
    -New classes just copy and paste skills from previous classes with slightly different animations
    -New classes are just OP versions of their predecessors (EG: DS> Warriors)
    To those people who call Phantom cheap, OP, etc.. you seriously need to shut up since you will be unsatisfied either way.
    *What’s trending now is that Nexon starts to give a standard face with slight changes for new classes (Merc, DS) etc so it’s kinda hard for customization, but anyways.

    3) Aswan is kinda cool. I love how Nexon keeps improving the story in overall for Maple and I hope it has something to do with Pirate Hero. Can’t wait!

    4) Lulz to all the assumptions that they would call the Pirate Hero Luffy. Any other suggestions beginning with the name L?

    The unexplained stuff such as Simulation System sounds exciting. Please shed light on this ASAP Max! 😀

    Sweet.This legend rocks.SO gonna make one.People who are whining and complaining obviously don’t know what they are talking about.In most of the games there is a character called by the name of trickster,jester or whatever you may like (you can use ditto as a pokemon reference).Nervetheless,this character has the unique ability to copy other skills.Now this character has some drawbacks,you CANNOT copy each and every skill.There are specific skills copyable.Also you can steal one skill at a time.If nexon follows this pattern like the other games,I am sure this character would be liked only a select few players.

    Since tespia isnt here,all this is speculation.But I am super excited for this legend 😀

    WHOZAH!!! Pirates and Thieves finally get thier BIG BREAK!!! 😀 woot

    KMS keeps on getting better cooler and most of all “Flashy Fly” :3

    Phantom is totally “Big Pimpin” on that mount and dat BIG ASS “SO FLY” SHIP LOL

    And finally we get more maple world expansion, Aswan.
    Though I’m gonna bet its ridiculously high lvled, like 160+ at least. ~_~
    I hope its not too high like Knights Stronghold which is like 180+

    IF thats the case, What KMS need to do in the future is cut the exp curve for 120+ by 50% that we people who have lives can actually enjoy lvling all these new characters up to 200 therefore enjoying the full extent of this godawfully addicitng MMO. ~_~ mattaku

    I think Aswan mentioned somewhere? By the 3rd Job Instructors or the dudes in Zakum Dungeon. And it sure seems like the Orbis El Nath region was been getting alot of expansions more so than other places with exception to Time Temple.

    In the beggining we had Orbis, then El Nath, Zakum, Orbis PQ, Hobo PQ + Ice Ravine, Cyrses(Greece), and Leon Castle.

      Agreed. The car doesn’t seem to fit in well; Neither do a lot of the foreign content like Taipei 101, Singapore, Maylasia or even Kerning City. I wish they would just stick to a more fantasy genre.

      Aswan reminds me of the lost town in the Zakum area. I keep thinking it is because of the flames and background.

    Phantom’s “Card” system sounds like a more-limited version of the Demon Slayer’s Force system – instead of getting tokens (“force” or “cards”) to execute special moves from every hit, you only get them from crits.

    Moving around a whole map with no damage? If they gave Phantom “Master of Inventory” then by god that would be the ULTIMATE mule character.

    • JProllz
      December 8, 2011 at 2:03 pm

      Also, for a guy/girl who just recently(?) got unfrozen from a block of magical-ice, Phantom is doing REALLY financially well – hiring several people, having a giant home-ship, as well as fuel and funds to run both. Damn that’s one RICH thief.

    • rubiksmaster123

      well demon slayers copied arans about charging up attacks with a basic attack. and Im pretty sure arans took that system off of heroes or something.

      But the thief hero looks so awesome, I hate how people are complaining about this class being a copycat, because that’s not all the moves for the class.

    Isn’t Aswan a city in Egypt? I would love to see where the new town is located in which region, or it might be like Edelstein or Erev, or the Aran based area.
    The lady in the picture is probably a boss. But since Empress Cygnus is already so OP, i’m really interested to see how powerful she is going to be. And I think the reason they keep updating the skills and job is to prepare maplers to face the ultimate boss, black mage, in the final chapter.
    By the way, there must be a defect for an op job like this- eg: Dual Blades are required to purchase their skill book through cash shop, might be a pain in the ass for some of the maplers. They might make an effing long cooldown before the Phantom can start stealing skills again, or limit the number of skills they can steal per day.

    Im glad nexon is trying to give us new stuff in the game, but i think they are doing it the wrong way. they culda stoped at pirate update and increased the lv cap from 200 and added 5th and 6th jobs o.o

    Although, i do like the look of Phantoms, its just gunna be the new OP class everyone hates.

    For anyone who wants to know I have been doing alot of research about phantom and discovered with the steal skill you have to be on the same map as the chara you are stealing the skill from but after you have the skill it is yours until you get rid of it. You may only steal 1 skill per job class. About how much sp the skill will have I’m not sure. I believe it will be maxed.

    Anyway the steal skill is better then it sounds, sure you can only have a certain amount of skills in your inv. per job advancement but it’s still better then having to stay in the same map as whoever you are stealing the skill from, right?

    So basically, you copy siege mode off a mechanic and kill bosses instantly.

      No, you can only copy from Adventurers, and even if you could steal from other classes, you wouldn’t be able to get the mount, use your brain before you say something stupid

    I had a quick question Max, with the Justice patch and the loss of PvP, do we lose the PVP gear? Or will BATT just disappear?

      Nope, all Battle Attack still exists, although its useless.

    2KLeaves :
    Actually, the Pirate Hero is the opening and closure to the Black Mage concept. His name is Testonen and he is Kyrin’s father. Here is the video that Nexon made back in 2008 when Pirates first came out:

    Besides, wouldn’t common sense say that Demon Slayer guy’s brother would have to somehow be 500 years old?

    I know it’s been a long time, but I’m only just now looking over patch info since re-jioning the game after a long time, and.. Testonen cannot be the pirate hero. He is not hundreds of years old, if he was the father to Kyrin, who is still alive in this day and age. He must have been born long after the Black Mage fought with the heroes and was sealed.

    i would still put the Phantom class as a pirate class. Because when he steals a skill (can not be passive has to be active) he doesnt actually steal it, because stealing would mean that the original owner (In this case another class) would lose that skill. however he copies the skill, and that is what pirating is…

    Hilla is just another boss they have implemented to try and make game play more fun, seeing as bossing is becoming easier and easier.. even an unfunded bishop can solo zak now…

      also when you “Copy” a skill from another Adventurer class (Warrior,Bowmen,Thief,Pirate,Mage) you memorize it in your load-out skill and you then have that skill untill you decide you have no use for it, this however does require “Impeccible Memory” Skill that you get at each Job advancement. you level this skill up like any other skill, and when you do “Copy” a skill, that skill is the same level as you impeccible memory skill in the Required Job advancement *For example… 4th Job advancement Impeecible memory is level 19, You try to steal a level 30 Maple Warrior, You will only get a level 19 Maple Warrior Regardless.

    “Maplestory Justice Update! Orange Mushroom’s Blog” was indeed a great article. In case it possessed much more pictures it would likely be perhaps even more effective. All the best -Janie
