January and February Update Preview!

January 17 Monster Life

The MapleStory homepage was recently updated, this time revealing TONS of information! This includes the rest of the Unlimited patch as well as things we haven’t seen in Tespia yet and future updates! Some of this stuff is really exciting, so read on!

First off is Monster Life, being released on January 17. We already knew about this, and I covered it in another post, so I won’t talk about it.

Root Abyss

Root Abyss will also be released on January 17. Save the World Tree, Alicia, from her seal!

“Please, get me out of here…” a mysterious girl will tell you when you awaken in a dark place, almost like a prison. Alicia, the World Tree, has been sealed in Root Abyss and only you can help her escape!

Damien, the newest commander of the Black Mage and Demon’s thought-to-be dead brother, seems to be the main villain in this story. The video, although short, was really cool I think, and it showed adventurers!! Although we haven’t seen much of Damien at all in-game so this is sort of odd… maybe it’s a surprise addition?

Seal's Guardians

Damien has left four Seal Guardians, Bloody Queen, Pierre, Von Bon, and Vellum! Defeat them in order to crush his scheme! However, be careful, these bosses are powerful beyond your imagination. (Well not really, but it makes things more exciting this way, doesn’t it?)

Level 150 Set

The ultimate item set equipment, the new level 150 set, can only be obtained in Root Abyss! If you wish to become stronger, challenge it!

Aswan Liberation War Surprise Reorganization

At the same time, it says that Aswan Liberation War will also receive a surprise reorganization! I wonder what they’ll be changing… there’s not much they can do, unless they completely redo how it works or something, haha.

New Party Quest Tangyoon's Cooking Class

A new party quest, Tangyoon’s Cooking Class will also be released on that date. I still don’t know what happens in here, but it requiring 1 to 3 parties has me interested (although that level requirement…).

January 31 Cygnus Returns

Now the more exciting part! The newly released patch on January 31 is titled Cygnus Returns, and brings with it a complete reorganization for the Knights of Cygnus!

Shinsoo's Death

The Black Mage’s commander, Damien, attacked Ereb and killed Shinsoo. Cygnus awakened in order to revive her! (She succeeded) Although incomplete, Cygnus’ awakening will give the Knights of Cygnus a newfound power!

The video above says COMING SOON, I’m excited to watch this fight between Shinsoo, Cygnus, and Damien!

Complete Transformation! Striker!

On January 31, the Striker job (Thunder Breaker in GMS) will receive a complete transformation! They will be able to reach level 200, their job advancement levels will be changed, and the ultimate pirate will be born! Strikers will receive all new skills, summon the God of the Sea to split the ocean! Hyper Skills as well, of course.

It seems that each Knight of Cygnus job will be reorganized in different updates. In February, the Wind Breaker (Wind Archer) will be newly reborn! I wonder what they can do with the Soul Master, considering they already have Mikhail…

January 31 System Reorganization

On this date, there will also be a system reorganization! The meso limit will be increased, and world merges are coming as well.

        Is that really your main concern? They can probably easily change mikhail to a non gender locked class. If Nexon honestly cared that much about keeping a class to its true form they would have made phantom gender locked coughAriacough

      i think the the cygnus knights will become completely new with alot more newer skills and possibly diff weapons because thats supposed to be the new thunder breaker and it looks like she has a new weapon that kinda looks like a blade/anchor,making them seem like new jobs, cant wait to see the all new blaze wiz.

      • January 11, 2013 at 7:11 pm

          The Black Mage knew Cygnus was looking for more power for her knights, and so he made Arkairum create ‘Future’ Henesys and Ereb in order to scare her. It’s not real, it’s just a dream that could be a possible future.

          So Max, does that mean that if you had a thunder breaker, they are gonna change into a new job right?

          During the last blog I was thinking of some possible things Nexon might do with CK, and I am somewhat on target. This was what i was thinking.

          They are gonna remove all CKs and make them the CK instructor.

          Ex: If you are a Blaze Wizard, you are gonna become Oz.
          Night Walker>>> Eckhart
          Wind Archer>>> Irene
          Thunder Breaker>>> Hawkeye
          and OFC Dawn Warrior>>> Mikhail

          But the the thing that made me think this is a bad idea is because of the Gender lock Mikhail has and what happens if the CK the person made was a female. The only thing I thought that might change this is if Mikhail is not gender-locked.

          SO what do you guys think. Does this sound like it is gonna happen?

          I know there is only one picture (most likely Thunder Breaker), but Nexon might just be hiding the other plans they have for us. They might even break it into parts and release them one patch after the other.

    Sorry Max, but I was wondering, with this happeing to the Cygnus Knights…. What’s the point of having regular Explorers? These “upgrades” seems like basically better versions of the Explorers that already exist…. And what about Ultimate Explorers? Unless the buff or make some kind of side quest ala Cygnus Skill quests Explorers get, this just doesn’t make sense..

    • Savi
      January 11, 2013 at 8:11 pm

      Unless they buff Explorers again*

      • January 12, 2013 at 12:26 am

        cant judge just yet haha

        • Savi
          January 12, 2013 at 9:01 pm

          Yeah, you’re right. But it just seems weird that’s all… Cygnus Classes were 120 for a reason, they where stronger at lower levels than Adventurers, and we have Ultimate Explorers now. Unless they turn them into the CK Instructers like Mikhail, I do not like how this is going for the Adventurers…… But anyways, you’re right, we’ll just have to wait and see I guess ^^

    • Bob
      January 12, 2013 at 4:08 pm

      They are most likely gonna receive another revamp soon. Nexon will soon notice that adventurers are far too weak (need a lot of funding to do damage close to the new jobs coming out where you dont even need fund) compare to other jobs soon and they are gonna get revamped….

      I hope they arent going to skip Thief and Pirate Revamps like during JUMP patch and give us the revamp like half a year later….

      • Bob
        January 12, 2013 at 4:10 pm

        Wait, I just looked at the trailer for Abyss Root just now and you notice that the Adventurer Warrior was in it. The Adventurer Revamp might be coming out very soon.

        • Savi
          January 12, 2013 at 9:05 pm

          Yeah, I noticed that too! Finally Adventurers have SOME relevance to the main story other than being in an alliance with the Resistance and CK 😛 Seriously, they need to be more involved in the main story of Maple Story…. Isn’t this supposed to be MY story after all, not Mercedes’ or Mikhail (seriously, its’s sooo weird when you are doing quests with Aran, Mercedes, ect they call you by their names and not your IGN….)

          • Butterfly24
            January 14, 2013 at 10:11 am

            It’s not weird because it’s their “Hero nicknames” of some sort,its like your title.same as you dont call a doctor in his private name,Or your father /mother. Anyways ,Explorers are free souls,unlike the new classes coming out after resistance,each of them has only 1 in the whole world by the storyline,kaiser is one of a kind,ab ,xenon ,demon avenger,luminous and on and on… adventurers are supposed to be “free souls” that travel around the world,loads of them exist.
            So I dont find it weird they have no storyline,the whole idea about them is just being free out of duty and doing whatever you want.

            That’s not true; while the earlier name-locked jobs like Aran, Evan and Mercedes used to be called by their job names, at some point it changed and now they do call you by your IGN. (Latter name-locked jobs like Luminous and Hayato are all referred to by their IGN)

    • Rawrsaur
      January 13, 2013 at 11:07 pm

      well there are other jobs besides ones that CKs are based on. >.>
      Plus, the revamped CKs would most likely be getting different skills from regular explorers, hence somewhat different game-play between CKs and their Adventurer counterpart.

      I repeat, “most likely.”

    Is it better then EMP?

    • Reason
      January 11, 2013 at 10:26 pm

      Being that it’s a full set that’s 10 levels higher and seeing as how all new non-event equipment have set effects, what do you think?

    • Butterfly24
      January 14, 2013 at 10:13 am

      Obviously it is,Because its not an event set and also 10 levels higher,Much like that when Reverse and timeless came out they were better than lv 110 eqps,And Eligos were better than Timeless,And Empress was better than Eligos,So I guess Root Abyss will probably be better than Empress.

  19. January 11, 2013 at 9:18 pm

    I would rather they out the other 4 Chief Knights than revamp KOC o_O, have a feeling that they are going to be stronger than Adventurers.

    • Butterfly24
      January 14, 2013 at 10:15 am

      I would not rather this,Too many classes already.I think Mihile should be excuslive thing.
      I just hope that now they’ll complete the 5 sets of each and stop making characters,For atleast a year or two…
      I mean,There are 3 more novas that need to come out and 2 more extra adventurers.5 more classes are more than enough.

      • January 15, 2013 at 2:18 pm

Cant wait to see what unique skills come to each one but im most excited for NW’s.

      Also, loving the new look for cygnus, she looks badass. Hope the other character designs (the new ones for each knight or whatever) look cool and im super excited! Voting for empress cygnus as a playable character (dont worry, i know it will never happen). That video is also really cool! the adventurers finally make an appearance in the promo videos (well finally adventurers besides the dual blade; and the pirate promo video doesnt count cause its in 3d and its sooooo old)

      Nope not happening. We didnt receive a lot of other data so no, we wont be getting the revamps for CKs anytime soon.

      BTW: I believe Abyss Root was a group project with all the different Nexons. KMS is like the “proto-type” for all the other Maplestory servers so all the data that comes out should be in KMS first but the fact that China came out with it first show that Abyss is not from KMS. It is like during back then when KMS received the Monster book, we GMS got the book like a few days later.

    We GMS are receiving Abyss Root in January 16. I guess this is the first time GMS actually got something before KMS got it.

    But sadly the chance of most of the characters to kill all four bosses is not likely since we didnt even receive the Hyper skills for most jobs. In the GMS Abyss Root trailer, the boss was doing 80k which is even higher than the current HP cap….. Even if Paladins are the best tanker, one hit from that is still going to instant kill them……

    • January 12, 2013 at 8:21 pm

      they are getting it the same day. Time zones account for ‘difference’

      • Bob
        January 14, 2013 at 12:13 pm

        Well in a way you can consider it as us getting the patch earlier. Cuz the date for the patch is earlier.

        I am not sure but doesn’t the Eastern side become that day first then the Western side?If so then we are still getting the patch like 12-24hrs earlier than KMS meaning pretty much one day earlier.

          add to that the usual 12- 24 hours Unschedule Maintence we always have in GMS after a patch
          and we are getting it at the same time

    I’m happy Cygnus finally awakened and her knights can get 200 and what not, but I’m sad they’re calling TB the “ultimate Pirate” now.
    Basically kicked normal Pirates to the curb. 😦

      The “Ultimate” pirate huh? It is gonna be a bunch of skill mixes like Corkscrew Blow, KAMEHAME HAAAA, and some other skills that are ripped off some other job but in a different animation.

      BTW: The KAMEHAME HAAA is referring to the blasts all the pirates have.

      AB: That 2nd job skill.
      Bucc: Bucc Blast
      Mech: Laser Blast
      Current TB: Bucc Blast
      Cannoner: Bazooka Blast

      AND you can somewhat consider Corsair’s Eight-leg since it pretty much has the same system as the other blast skills.

        • Butterfly24
          January 14, 2013 at 10:22 am

          Also because his brother friggen left cause he died,So he rather joining against his brother more than joining him ? It does make no sense…I bet there’s gonna be another cheesy story of Damien being sick of living to his big brother’s shadow and now seeking revenge or black mage revived him and took away his memories or something like that ,blahblahblah…

          • Looloo
            January 15, 2013 at 7:27 am

            Well, the Black Mage destroyed Demon Slayer’s home and killed his mother and brother, but what if the Black Mage told Damien that Demon Slayer did it, and he joined the Black Mage to avenge his mother. Since Demon Slayer worked for the Black Mage, Damian would probably be alright with working under him to get avenge his mom and kill Demon Slayer.
            Well, that’s what I think happened.

    What I get from “the ultimate pirate will be born!” is that MAYBE pirates are getting a hero, like a modern day maple hero, that joins the original 5 re-awaken heros. I don’t know just a thought, remember when many were complaining the last hero was a magician? (or like I like to call him the bad ass cleric) and STORY is left to be spelled (S=striker) who knows, we’ll have to wait.

    • Anonymous
      January 14, 2013 at 12:04 am

      I actually agree with you for some reason and seeing that you have given a little proof actually gives me a little hope. Ever since tempest hit GMS I enjoyed luminous but I kind of felt that the pirate hero was missing. I did have a theory that maybe they could make the “new hero” generation with a pirates like kind of Evan. Anyways let’s just wait and see.

      • SneebleDoo
        January 14, 2013 at 10:29 pm

        Here’s the thing. I agree that there could, and should, be a new generation of heroes. ones that rise from Maple world to fight alongside the old heroes and the rest of maple world against the newer evil that threatens not just Maple World, but the entire Maple Universe (including grandis and any other worlds affected by the Black Mage and Grandis’s transendant of life). However, I dont believe that the Striker will be one of the the new heroes and i dont think necessarily they will spell STORY although it is a possibility. This new Striker will be followed by the other Cygnus Knights but the hope for 5 new heroes still remains for me

        • jmk
          January 14, 2013 at 11:38 pm

          Thank you all for your replies, and yeah I agree, spelling STORY is just a thought. But yeah, old legends fighting alongside new heroes would be really interesting.

    • Butterfly24
      January 14, 2013 at 10:27 am

      Story shouldnt be spelled because its basically MAPLE story ,E.g. the story of the five heroes. Also ,As weird as it sounds the AB is the pirate hero xD,Cheesy anime-ish one but she is . (Not belonging to the heroes that fought the black mage tough),Also if you didn’t notice,100 years ago pirates didnt exist.If you dont remember,they existed only after Kyrin’s mother gave birth to her ,And as she grew up she went to travel the seas,And ended up returning to the land her mother helped to create and made a pirate crew.

      • Savi
        January 14, 2013 at 10:32 pm

        Wait, wasn’t Kyrin’s father a Pirate?! I always thought he was supposed to be the last hero o.o

      Ima say xenon is coming around march April ish, considering how they are updating faster and faster

      • Bob
        January 14, 2013 at 12:37 pm

        The thing is the GMS is like catching up to KMS like crazy. Back then it took around 1month per patch (~ 4weeks) but now GMS changed it to 3weeks per patch. And knowing on how GMS send out Hyper skills with Kaiser’s patch (1 week after AB for KMS), they might send out all the remaining Hyper Skills in the next patch. If so, then we might get Xenon patch around mid or late February and Cygnus patch around March. By that time KMS might have send out all the Cygnus Knights as well so ~~ it will be cool.

        • January 14, 2013 at 6:51 pm

          yeah i hope they space between updates gets reduced to like 1-2 months.

        And i swear, if Cygnus thief is gonna be the same as NLs or 10x more OP than NLs then they better revamp all the classes. The reason why i believe NLs are popularly played is because of the uniqueness of the class and not it’s OPness. We are so weak and with even high amounts of funding we can barely do as much as the other thief jobs. And since NWs are pretty much the same, it will send NLs to a pile of crap……

    • Bob
      January 14, 2013 at 12:08 pm

      O crap, i forgot about hackers….. But anyway who cares. The only good thing the bosses drop are coins/item to buy the good scrolls. And I believe the scrolls are untradable so the best the hackers can offer from Abyss scroll Service.

    Butterfly24 :
    It’s not weird because it’s their “Hero nicknames” of some sort,its like your title.same as you dont call a doctor in his private name,Or your father /mother. Anyways ,Explorers are free souls,unlike the new classes coming out after resistance,each of them has only 1 in the whole world by the storyline,kaiser is one of a kind,ab ,xenon ,demon avenger,luminous and on and on… adventurers are supposed to be “free souls” that travel around the world,loads of them exist.
    So I dont find it weird they have no storyline,the whole idea about them is just being free out of duty and doing whatever you want.

    Hmm I see. Well, I get the fact about Adventurers being free souls and just kind of thrown into the Black Mage war I guess, but I just want them to be more relevant to the main storys progression, instead of mere stand-byers… But then again… that wouldn’t make it MY story… and Adventurers would be like the other classes, perhaps…. Im just rambling now lol.

      Read more carefully,It’s a shared project,CMS already had it first. All of the Nexons probably worked on it together.But yet it’s silly,The bosses are almost unbeatable without hyper skills or damage/hp cap increase and flame of reincration and such…
