MapleStory 2 – Season 3 Update!

Balrog

The second large update to MapleStory 2, Season 3, has been added! This patch includes an increased level cap to level 50, new skills, bosses, and party dungeons as well as new areas to explore. I believe this is the last level cap increase for now (it was mentioned in the patch notes). Note that Zakum has not been added yet, but it was available in the CBT, so I’m not sure if he will be added as a level 50 boss or they’re waiting to see if they’ll increase the cap again.

Like the last patch, updated skill tables will come soon!

You can see a good overview of the content which was added in this patch through Maview’s Level Guide!

    Skype has launched its website-structured consumer beta on the world, following starting it
    broadly from the U.S. and You.K. previously this 30 days.
    Skype for Internet also now can handle Chromebook and Linux for immediate messaging communication (no voice and video
    however, these require a connect-in set up).

    The expansion in the beta contributes help for a longer
    list of spoken languages to help strengthen that worldwide usability
