CMSt ver. 071 – Root Abyss & New Bosses!

December 14, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Root Abyss - The Giant Root

This post title might seem a bit random, but actually it’s very surprising! China MapleStory’s test server has released the new area and bosses of Root Abyss before kMSt! This area is the one hinted at with all of these boss previews and even one of the last Inkwell’s Secret Diary entries! I don’t know why CMSt got it first, but I’ll try my best to cover it~ It’s really really interesting because it is really important to the storyline of MapleStory~

Please note that many of the translations I am using are from Hadriel of Southperry from this thread, so huge thanks to him for posting them!

Sleepywood

The new area is located in Sleepywood actually! You can see the root of a large tree off the path to Ant Tunnel.

Falling into Root Abyss

My guess is that once you approach it with your character in game, you’ll fall into it (obviously).

Root Abyss

You will then find yourself in the Root Abyss! It’s a new area with 4 new bosses! This area is for levels 110 to 160. There’s only one map in between each boss so it’s not that great for training though.

Each boss has two different modes, one for levels 110 and over and the other for levels 140 and over.

First Meeting with Alice

You will be awakened by a girl named Alice. Now… there’s something special about her that you should know.

World Tree Alice

Alice is the World Tree, the Transcendence of Life for the Maple World! After the battle with the Black Mage, her powers became very weak. She rested in the Root Abyss, at the centre of Victoria Island, to regain her powers, since the area is filled with life energy.

Alice in Ereb

However, it seems that Alice has been sealed in the Root Abyss! To help her, you’ll have to defeat the four bosses in each gate.

The above video shows the ending of the Root Abyss storyline~ Thanks to Spadow for the video and chuanjun of EllinForest for the translations!

You reluctantly bring Alice to Ereb, because she has been sealed for so long and has not been able to see the world. However, you and her both know she will be safer there under the protection of Cygnus and Shinsoo. After Alice begins her sleep, Nineheart tells you that the Sealing Guardian has been revived. Who this is we don’t really know… but it probably means a new story will begin soon!

Damien

And we finally know where this picture takes place, in Root Abyss! More interesting is that we now know the identity of this mysterious person, none other than Demon’s brother, Damien!

Queen City

Now let’s get into the bosses. First off, in the path to the left, lies Queen City. It’s really creepy with all the skulls and spiderwebs…

Bloody Queen

The boss for this area is the Bloody Queen. Definitely scary… I bet her head spins around to reveal something super hideous, haha.

Afternoon Tea Garden

The area to the bottom left leads to the Afternoon Tea Garden.

Pierre

This is Pierre, another boss in the Root Abyss. I wonder what type of skills he uses…

Crack in Time

The next area is called the Crack in Time, and it definitely looks that way.

Banban

Banban (name TBD) is the boss for this place. I guess he can control the power of time, although how a chicken got that power I don’t know, haha.

Abyss Cave

The last area is the Abyss Cave. This one definitely looks like it’s the big boss zone, haha.

Belum

This is the boss, Belum (again, name TBD). He’s huge! And I wonder if he’s really a dragon or a worm… we don’t really know what’s below the rocks.

This video (thanks to forad999!) shows the fights against Banban, Pierre, and Bloody Queen! They all have the Death Count system, and the items they drop are Epic if you fight them in their 140+ form. They all have some pretty unique skills compared to the past Maple bosses. They really give importance to your positioning in fights rather than raw damage.

Banban can make the timer advance a few seconds, I think it’s whenever you stand on that clock that he summons. He drops a hat that looks like his head, haha. Pierre has his tornado that leaves DoT tiles on the floor, he also drops a hat. Bloody Queen does a slash attack that inflicts different status effects on you, from her you can get a chair that looks like the one in her map.

Finally, Belum, who seems to have the most annoying fight of all. Every few seconds he will disappear into the ground and reappear, making it really hard to do damage to him. He can also fly out of the ground! He drops a hat like Banban and Pierre.

      Maybe he is the mysterious “Sealing Guardian”? lol dont know why he would be though and he would have been too you to seal Alice down there right after the Black Mage was defeated. Then again it is said that she went down there to rest first and was then later sealed down there.

        Adding maturity to this game is the worst idea ever. I would say that 80%+ of this game’s population play it because it is cute. If you didn’t want cute you should have played a different game that employs better graphics.

          im just saying i ike the direction the game is taking in terms of art style……. and plus you know yourself that statistic you used is fake and made up on the spot……

    • fynn
      December 14, 2012 at 7:04 pm

      If you took your head out from underneath the ground and ignored the cliches that were inevitable to any half decent game, you would know that bloody has more important HISTORICAL connotations than that of it’s colours.

      • Baroque
        December 17, 2012 at 6:26 am

        You, too, might do well to remember the past — Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is of literary significance, and is referenced in a great many modern works ranging from movies to games to even anime and manga. Sure, ‘bloody’ has more connotations than just ‘red’, but when it is in the name of a queen in an area that references Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in so many, many ways (ranging from the obvious fall-down-a-hole to the less-obvious giant, terrible dragon [for Through the Looking-Glass is so often referenced alongside the first book when making such areas as this, in particular the Jabberwocky]), it is not incorrect to assume a connection to the color even if the Queen of Hearts and the Red Queen are not exactly the most GENTLE folk in the world of literature — or mayhaps I should say it is not incorrect BECAUSE they are so inclined to inflict harm.

        While not everything in MapleStory is a reference to other works, they do occasionally like to throw in an area that does reference something, and to recognize them is half the fun of the area. I look forward to the day this content comes to GMS.

      • Baroque
        December 17, 2012 at 6:34 am

        I actually find the fact that Banban is a rooster (not a chicken) to be a nice touch considering they’ve given him temporal powers. After all, while it might not be terribly impressive, it does at least hold some relation to time (the crowing of a rooster being a traditional signal in fiction [and sometimes real life] that dawn has arrived and all that). It could also even be a partial reference to another character from the work, the Dodo.

        Only time will tell on that last note, though.

    It’s about time MapleStory got something related to Alice in Wonderland, I think most games out there have something at least a little bit similar to this story. And the bosses look AWESOME! They have a new kind of drawing, seem more clear than other sprites in the game and also that Bloody Queen is really creepy, I’m gonna love this area.

    Hey max, her connection to Ereb is the fact that Cygnus and her knights when to find the world tree when the black mage sprung his trap on them turning them evil and what not. Or am I wrong?

    • Max
      December 14, 2012 at 6:29 pm

      That was only a dream created by the Black Mage to scare Cygnus so she wouldn’t look for power.

    WHOA, wait….when did the transcendence’s battle the black mage?!?!?!?!?! I thought it was only the 5 heroes?

    • SneebleDoo
      December 14, 2012 at 8:24 pm

      Well remember, the black mage attempted to take the power of the other transcendence’s. Although Alice may not have been directly involved with the actual battle itself we have to keep in mind she could still have had a major influence on those events that took place before, during, and after the battle. Not to mention the three transcendence’s may all be connected as each world has just that: three transcendence’s. Light, Life, and Time. It is possible that when one is harmed all three suffer. Maybe no worlds can exist without all three and the the sealing of the black mage (Transcendence of Light) had an impact on the other two as well (Rhine and Alice).

    • Anonpixels
      December 15, 2012 at 7:51 am

      Well, the Black Mage was a Transcendence himself, the Transcendene of Light.
      He tried to steal Rhine’s (Goddess of Time, Transcendence of Time) power of Time, remember?
      Alice possibly had an impact because she pretty much feels all life in Mapleworld. Because of the number of deaths and injurys in the battle against the black mages, she probably had to use her own power to protect a lot of people from losing their lives.
      Also: Remember.
      The FINAL battle against the Black Mage contained the five heroes. It wasn’t the only battle.
      Before that happened, the Black Mage probably fought the other Transcendences for Power, like Rhine and Alice.

    Yes! Love the new info on the overall Maple-Story-Line! They haven’t revealed the character designs for any of the three Transcendence’s for Grandis though. Hope they get to this next!

    Anyways, Alice looks really cool and I love where this story is going (I think).

    Nice post and I cant wait to hear more!

    Gasp! There are now void zones?! I’d like to see them damage ****** deal with this. Damage won’t matter as greatly anymore. Survivability (in the case of the death count system) and tactics are going to be key in these battles, not just straight up raw damage. Well played, Nexon.

    And did I just see phantom blow and advanced charge blow drop from that chicken-like boss? That’s rare stuff there. I see people in basil, particularly in the paladin forums QQing about there not being ACB skill books in the market, well I hope this fixes it at least a little. Then again, I don’t expect that much stuff drop in the real version since this is just a test server.

      it is 140+
      read a little closely… “two modes” lvls 110+ and 140+
      area is for lvls 110 to 160.
      if 160 is not lvl140+ in your standards then stop max leveling your characters and try other characters. We got plenty now…

    Why do asians always use a foreigner especially white people as the symbol of life and protection when today they are causing millions of people to die in Africa. Thoese countries are already poor and they are making them into stoneage. Wow its more like a symbol of death. Well people might flame on me, I am, I think I am ready for it.

    OT: Well I think CMST got it first because both of them is working together according to the same thing. So probably Korea already wrote what it needs to include and CMST just did it faster.

      maybe it is because of all that brainwashing you received from bleeding heart liberals be it professors, movie stars, talk show host, or those idiots from MSNBC, who are complete and utter hypocrites that love to propagate their delusional and radical ideology against the success of White European, Western civilization, about how the the third world countries rots in their own shit, thanks no education, freedom and corrupt totalitarian and/or theocratic governments in complete control of everyone’s miserable lives?

      I do not know what made you make that silly statement based on really silly and naive thinking, thanks to condescending stereotypes, but I would suggest looking outside your bubble and what the world and it’s people really looks like.

      We have many your so called “evil white people” working as humanitarians doing more for the people in Africa and other poor countries than China or Russia could even care of doing.

      It’s called the United Nations, though they are just as corrupt and irrelevant as any major establishment.

      But anyway I digress with my own hypocritical delusions of grandeur, and talkings from my posterior.

      We Asians just like White/European western culture. It is I what I call “Ceteris paribus”, meaing in my personal definition “That’s just how we roll bitches”

      Plus, I love this Alice in Wonderland reference to this Root Abyss area, its so gothic emo awesome. 🙂

      Bloody Queen is FREAKOUSLY CREEPY
      Pierre is like the Mad Hatter, “Mad Clown”
      and “FOLLOW THE WHITE CHICKEN with the monocle and snazy suit”.: ROFL

      and HOLY SHIT ITS SILFER THE SKYDRAGON!? The Eygptian God Card that Yuki Moto used to defeat Seto Kaiba…. derp…

      Belum reminds me a cross of YuGiOH, Pokemon, and the Jabberwocky.

    If you got it on with the Alice the World Tree, would the kids be human or plants?

    But I digress. New content is fine and all, but…it’s just a bunch of new bosses with a complete ass pull plot device tacked on.

    http://strategywiki.org/wiki/MapleStory/Towns

    I remember when most of those were implemented. It meant exciting new areas and new content to explore. There was an adventurous new frontier feel to it. New content put the ADVENTURE in ADVENTURER. Now it’s all about more power, rather than exploring and enjoying the game. MOAR BOSSES MOAR POWAR! With new areas added only as needed in order to have some place to put them. I also remember when party quests still had value. But that’s another issue entirely.

    Suffice it to say, this stuff doesn’t impress. Yay, more enemies to kill. As if the game doesn’t have enough of them already.

    I miss the feeling that new content used to inspire, before it started feeling less thought out and more “forced,” as if they’re just adding things because they have to.

    • FUCK MAPLE
      December 16, 2012 at 9:37 am

      You are so right on that point.

      I also remember the thrill of exploring new areas, like Korean Folk Town, and Omega Sector, Ariant and Magatia, and Leafre, and Singapore.

      I also remember how we didnt have Ultimate Teleport rocks or whatever, and that dude that sells Planes, where we had to wait 10 to 15 mins of traveling between continents.

      and I also remember the fun and challenges each PQ had that relied on teamwork and “cooperation” but that was back in Maplers had more “class” and “maturity”

      Now its just the complete opposite. They made this game too easy and give aways for all noob players. Not only that but there is sense of multiplayer comradery and community, where everyone acts like selfish antisocial assholes, and treats each other like shit, cus they are just mere strangers

      not only that but its nothing but FM Merchant whores farming for shit, making mad Amount of meso and then sells them to meso sellers for real money

      ITs all about GREED and POWER HOES.

      Theres only 2 types of Maplers these… FM WHORES and POWER WHORES

      there used to be many HenesysHoes in almost every map of Henesys but not so much.
      maybe because they lvl like mad to 160 and then moved to Future Henesys so they continue acting like HenesysHoes without harassment from trolls.

      Oh shit and thats another thing TROLLS ARE FUCKIN EVERYWHERE!!!
