MapleStory 2 – End of CBT!
Hey guys! Earlier today, the Closed Beta Test for MapleStory 2 ended. Over the past five days, I had a ton of fun playing, exploring the world, and checking out all of the game’s features! I took so many screenshots and I recorded some videos as well to share with you guys.
Some of you might have received an email about a post called the Comprehensive Guide to MapleStory 2, but that was a mistake on my part, it’s not ready yet! But come back soon, because it’s going to have a ton of information (you won’t need any other site!) 🙂 Right now I’ll just share with you guys my videos~
The game has a lot of customization of your character, even from character creation above. In Beauty Street, you have access to a lot of hairstyles and faces, as well as the ability to change your equipment’s colours!
Another thing I loved was the variety of emotes you can have, called dynamic motions in MapleStory 2. You get like 12 basic ones and you can buy so many more in shops.
In the Grand Hall in Tria, you can advance to a job of your choice. Currently, only five jobs out of eight were available: Knight, Wizard, Priest, Ranger, and Assassin. The other three jobs, Berserker, Heavy Gunner, and Thief should be available in the next testing phase (OBT?).
Here’s a tour of all of the cities in MapleStory 2: Tria, Henesys, Kerning City, Perion, Ellinia, and Lith Harbor. At first glances of the game, I wasn’t too sure about the block style, but it works really well and some areas are beautiful! I love that Ellinia is actually a giant tree that you can climb.
The music in this game is amazing, especially the remixed versions of the original. Go to 5:25 and bask in the glory of remixed Ellinia. I really hope someone can extract the music, there’s a lot more tracks than the Alpha client and some BGMs were changed from then as well.
Due to the limited SP for all classes (100 at all levels), you can’t spam your stronger abilities. You have to weave in more basic skills which replenish SP. As a Ranger, I was really squishy so I had to make good use of my Frost Shot to slow enemies and create distance between us.
Anyways, the game is really fun and I hope you guys can experience it soon! Hopefully my guide will be out before the end of this week, but no promises~
