Dimensional Library

A new type of theme dungeon, the Dimensional Library has been opened! It’s a living, breathing record of events that occurred in Maple World! Each book is filled with stories that no one has ever known, come to the Library and read them~

Through the Dimensional Mirror

You can access the Dimensional Library through the Dimensional Mirror, if you are level 100 or above.

Library of Dimensions

By talking to the skylark Rita, you can enter a book! This will allow you to directly experience important events that have occurred in the past in Maple World~

Say goodbye to existing theme dungeons’ quests of hunting monsters or collecting items, the Dimensional Library is different. You will become the main character in each of these stories!

The librarian Thales will hand you three books to choose from (you have to do them in order though).

Episode 1 White Mage

Episode 1: White Mage – hundreds of years ago, there was a genius magician who studied light magic in Maple World. But… where is he now?

This part will feature a Monologue Mode, where you can read the thoughts of characters and click to further the story.

Episode 2 How to Become an Empress

Episode 2: How to Become an Empress – the next in the Empress of Ereb’s lineage, a nervous little girl appears. Can she really be an Empress?

In this part, you’ll have to help Cygnus work on her traits so she’ll be confident in herself!

Episode 3 Black Witch

Episode 3: Black Witch – it has been reported that the Black Wings are planning to assassinate Empress Cygnus! Investigate the disappearance of Dunamis and find out who is causing all of this!

This part features many minigames in which you’ll have to participate in to chase after the culprit.

Chaser of the White Mage Empress Maker Hobby of Reading Books Pendant Slot Expansion Mastery Book 20

For each Episode you complete, you’ll get a medal! The first two are called Chasing the White Mage and Empress Maker, which give the same stats (4 to all stats, 160 HP and MP). The third is the Hobby of Reading Books medal and it gives 4 to all stats, 175 HP and MP, and 1 attack/magic attack.

You’ll also get a 21 Day Pendant Expansion Slot for completing all 3 Episodes, and you can extend its duration by 7 days by finding a Piece of Story from monsters inside the theme dungeon. This Pendant slot can be extended up to 3 times (so you can get at most 42 days of an extra Pendant slot).

And you’ll also receive a Mastery Book 20.

Boss Arena Notification

A new type of player versus player content, Boss Arena is now open! Click the icon and talk to Spiegelmann to join the waiting list, where you’ll be automatically matched with another player who is close to your level/rank.

Choosing a Boss, Handicap, Skills

There will be two rounds, one where you control the boss and one where you fight the boss (controlled by the other player). First, you’ll have to choose the boss you wish to play, choose 2 of 4 common skills, and your handicap.

With a higher handicap, your boss’s defenses will be lowered and your opponent will do more damage, but you’ll gain better prizes at the end if you win.

Boss Arena Bosses

The bosses that you can choose from are Magnus, Ani, Arkarium, Dragonica, Cygnus, and Van Leon.

Using Boss Skills

Each boss has 3 attacking skills, 3 regular skills, and the 2 common skills you picked beforehand. They’ll be put on hotkeys for you and they each have cooldowns, so use them wisely!

Players will not be able to use their job’s movement skills but will be given a Flash Jump which can be used up to 10 times per round. You cannot use any potions, pets, Androids, or change equipment/hotkeys while inside.

Winning Boss Arena

To win, you’ll have to either exhaust all 10 of the other player’s Death Count (if you are controlling the boss) or defeat the boss and get his health to 0 (if you are fighting the boss). You have 5 minutes to do it.

If after 5 minutes, no winner has been found, one will automatically be chosen based on the remaining Death Count and HP of the boss.

Boss Arena Results

After both rounds have been completed, an overall winner will be chosen and you’ll be able to see the number of rounds you won, the Death Points you got, and the level of you and your opponent.

Boss Arena Ranking System

There is a ranking system for Boss arena, based on your wins and losses! It goes from C rank all the way to S.

Boss Arena Emblem

And obviously, there’s an item you can get for participating in Boss Arena, it’s the Boss Arena Emblem! This is a special emblem because you can wear it on any character (for jobs that did not receive an Emblem slot beforehand) AND it can receive additional options (unlike already existing ones)!

The Boss Arena Emblem begins at level 60 with 5 to all stats and 1 attack and magic attack. However, its stats will increase as your Boss Arena rank increases! This will not change the potential of the item.

The Emblem is given to you after participating in Boss Arena 10 times.

Brutal Flame of Reincarnation

Also, for every 3 wins in Boss Arena, you’ll receive a Brutal Flame of Reincarnation which resets the additional options on your Emblem at a 100% chance.

Kritias Map

They also made some slight changes to Kritias. The number of monsters that spawn in each map has been adjusted and the health and experience of all monsters has been increased! Great change because they actually gave trash exp before haha.

The first event is the RED Thank You event! Until August 19, you can log in and receive the R.E.D. title which gives 2 attack and magic attack, 1 all stats, and 100 HP and MP.

    • Bob
      August 12, 2013 at 10:17 pm

      Lazy as in looks lamer? Personally I find this to make DB’s skills link more so in a way, it is always good to have. And I am sure DB’s can be far stronger now so if you play it don’t worry too much about it. At least I dont see any “nerf” other than Blade Fury; it seems to have lost some upper range but balancing is all Nexon’s job not our =D

      • .
        August 13, 2013 at 11:03 am

        Blade fury didn’t get nerfed, in fact it got buffed on bigger AoE (150% ->200%) and shorter delay (810ms -> 720ms)

        Also, blade fury was VERY weak to begin with. Making it faster was a solution I guess.

      I personally am quite content with both revamps of Dual blade and Cannoneer, and the new lvl 100 theme dungeon. Now that Red is hopefully finished, perhaps KMS will now give both Blaze Wizards and Nightwalkers the a proper overhaul akin to the other three Cygnus Knights, come September.
      As for 5th job, I really doubt that they will be coming out until Winter of this year since they have to give every class 5th job skills in additionto the Cygnus Knights they have yet to revamp. Finally, I personally feel that Mikhail and Mechanic no not need a revamp as they are already strong as is.

    Dear Nexon, it would be awesome if the Dimensional Library had like a scene/quest viewer for your character’s story and a CG gallery as well. You don’t have to do the quests again but the text involved will be shown and stuff like that.
    Please please pleeease.

    Sure I could just remake the character but it would be very nice and convenient. Just saying.

      5th Job was never part of RED, I don’t think so that is.

        That V appeared at the end of the RED showcase, so i hope its going to be the first part of the next patch, and not in the end of RED, cause the image has nothing on the “RED stuff”

    I believe they said we won’t be getting fifth job for quite some time as it takes time to develop one for every single job in Maplestory, including one for the Cygnus Knights that have yet to receive a revamp, so please have patience. My source for this comes from Spadow.
    “I’ll begin to say that nothing of the 5th Job Advancement was said. In late May, Nexon had announced in an interview that they were working on the development of 5th Job. However, because of the large amount of work and detail that has to be spent on the skills it will take some time. My take on it is that we will probably see something around winter.”

    Waiting for Blaze Wizard and Night Walker. Hoping they’ll fix Freezing Breath so it provides something useful for the user.

    Boss arena needs to die , just tried it and is retard-ish , you don’t really control the boss only tell him which skills to use , he moves by himself. Oh and the bosses hit so hard you’re prolly gonna have to go full range mode when it’s your turn without boss….

    learn to boss arena ok

    I have a question that I would like the community to answer. Which class do you guys think is better and why: paladin or dual blade. I can decide which I should make my main so I would appreciate it if you could help me out

      Actually u should never decide based on other opinion, find one job that suits you or u like the most 🙂 DB if u wan fast attack, Pala if u wan elemental attacks, well at least that how I main my pala way before Legends. If u cant decide, try them both:)

    I see they’re still not done fucking Walkers and Wizards in the ass. About how many more classes need to be revamped/added before they finish updating the Cygnus Knights?

    • Mugen
      August 19, 2013 at 10:11 pm

      Also, Mechs. No revamp for them either?

      • Kevin
        August 19, 2013 at 10:56 pm

        Mechs are pretty strong they dont really need a revamp unless they are putting to resistance link skills ¬¬

        • Mugen
          August 20, 2013 at 7:46 pm

          Regardless of being pretty strong, which they haven’t been since they were nerfed shortly after their release, Mechs are the only Resistance class to not receive a shiny new coat of pimp. Slayer (in the form of Avenger), Xenon, Bams and even Wild Hunters all received special attention from Nexon. Mechs, on the other hand, have been almost as ignored as Night Walkers. It’s about time they were redesigned with less steampunk, more super robot cliches and a healthy dose of gar glasses. Also, a jetpack like Xenon’s. Alternatively, powered armor might be more appropriate. Still, when’s the last time Mech’s had their obligatory yearly buffing?
