The kinds of potions that regular monsters drop will now scale based on the monster’s level.

Potential Stamps, Additional Potential Stamps, and Golden Hammers will now allow you to click the equipment you want to use them on after double clicking them, just like Cube items.


If you complete content from the Maple Tutorial and receive a stamp, you can now use the Maple Tutorial to teleport to that content regardless of your level.


Monsters’ buff and debuff icons will now be displayed all at once.

The maximum distance before a pet will teleport to you has been increased. In addition, the speed at which pets move towards items when picking them up has been increased greatly.

All jobs’ maximum down jump height has been increased. However, this does not apply to Mechanics.

You can now purchase more than one item at a time when using coins at coin shops. However, certain items will be excluded.

When Demon Avengers receive the Hero’s Gloves, Mu Gong’s Gloves, So Gong’s Gloves, Teacher’s Gloves, or Student’s Gloves from the Mu Lung Dojo, their all stats option will be changed to HP.

Mechanics can now choose which colour they would like to change to instead of it being random.

Angelic Buster’s cosmetics specifics have been relaxed.

  • You can now wear Cash overalls, tops, bottoms, eye accessories, earrings, shoes, and capes. Weapon and ring Cash equipment will apply to both your transformed/non-transformed looks.
  • You can now see both your before and after transformation equipment at the same time on the existing Angelic Buster-only Coordi and the Cash tabs.
  • You can change your transformed equipment freely through the Cash tab on the equipment window. The existing Coordinate skill has been deleted.
  • In the Cash Shop’s preview area, you can transform using the Dress Up button and freely change your outfits before and after transforming.

On multi-level terrain, to make acquiring items easier, the location where items are dropped after a monster is defeated has been changed.


The duration of Soul Skills will now be displayed on the right side of the screen.

Items received from the MVP Daily Pack will now be shown in the chatting window after exiting the Cash Shop.


Items that have an expiry date have been changed to be easier to see in the inventory.


The readability of NPC names in maps has been improved.


The Cross Hunter UI‘s shop tab has been changed to match the items sold by the Cross Hunter Hideout’s NPC shop. You can now buy Scroll Traces and other items through the Cross Hunter UI.

If you choose to return a character to normal if it was previously deleted and is in the ‘ghost’ state, you will now receive a confirmation message before it is returned to normal.

When you exit the game, you will now receive any rewards that you did not receive. This includes items from PC Room Connection rewards, Daily Gifts, and MVP rewards.

Epic Potential Scroll epic-potential-scroll unique-potential-scroll

The icons of Epic Potential Scrolls and Unique Potential Scrolls have been changed to make them easier to distinguish from regular Potential Scrolls.

You can now right click character names in the chatting window to receive the following options:

  • Save Name
  • Whisper
  • Add as Buddy
  • Party Invite
  • Guild Invite
  • Report

Battle Tab Separators.png

In the chatting window, meso and experience numbers will now display separators for every thousand, to make it easier to know how many units you have received.

Pet buff skills’ activation/deactivation messages will now be shown in the Battle tab.


You can now place the Screenshot and Settings shortcuts on other keys instead of them being locked to ESC/Scroll Lock. Consequently, you can now use the ESC/Scroll Lock keys for other shortcuts.

    What does QoL mean?

    • Max
      October 3, 2016 at 8:52 pm

      QoL = quality of life, just general updates that aren’t necessarily new content but they make the game feel better 🙂

  7. October 3, 2016 at 9:30 pm

    If we already cleared previous versions, would there be any changes to the quests/dialoge?

    • Max
      October 4, 2016 at 12:07 am

      I don’t think so, it’s designed as a new theme dungeon with small references to the older versions (just like Mushroom Castle).

      • October 4, 2016 at 12:01 pm

        Well in MC, if you already completed the old version, there are some changes. An example is saying you beat the Minister last time

    • Hanabira.Kage
      October 5, 2016 at 1:44 am

      It’s basically a sequel to the previous version of the dungeon. The story’s gonna be different.
