I’m not level 225 yet so I won’t be able to do a tour video, but here’s a slideshow of the maps in the area!

NOTE: The area’s storyline is not complete so we don’t know who the person wearing the cloak is (although I’m 99% sure it’s Orca…). We’ll have to wait a week until this hits the official servers for confirmation!

Arcane River

lacheln

Although this was not mentioned in the patch notes, all Hidden Hunting Grounds (360 AF areas) in Arcane River have been removed. I guess this is because there is now a higher level area than Lacheln available so they want you to go there?

      Yes! There’s actually space for 2 more, for a total of 6 Arcane Symbols. So maybe they’ll add two more areas in the future :^)

    At least Maple is being considerate enough now to put a story mode Lucid…. When I saw the first line in the guide (To enter arcana, you have to defeat Lucid and complete Showdown quest), I was thinking Ok, so my journey in arcane river ended already ^^

    Any information on whether or not there will be a daily/party quest for this arcane symbol, and if not do you think there will be one with the official server patch?

    • Max
      February 3, 2017 at 12:07 am

      No dailies atm. I’m not sure if they’ll include them with the official server patch because only Road of Vanishing came with dailies. Chew Chew’s Hungry Muto was only added when Lacheln was added, and Lacheln’s Dream Breaker was just added a couple of months ago.

      Probably! Daromi is his name and ‘daramjui’ is squirrel in Korean so it’s sort of similar.

    Some of those monster levels make me feel like they’re preparing to ramp up the level cap again or something.

    Well, I’m guessing they found a way to bring back players, so daily quests are what will make them log in every day to play. However, people who are not over 220 or 230 cannot do those daily quests. And leveling is a pain in the butt so they might stop once they are done with the first 2. Win-win but also not really.

    How did he get the slide show of the maps in the area? Is this kind of information for other maps available somewhere? It looks like it’s really useful for comparing mob spawns… and it’s pretty.

        Is it possible for you to upload a compilation of these kinds maps over time? I really like it. Also, are the mobs manually placed? Or are the spawns actually as shown?

        • Max
          February 3, 2017 at 9:53 am

          For future maps I sure can! And I think the spawns actually are like that because I didn’t place the mobs myself.

    thanks.

    i’m maybe will not see the new area. i’m not doing bossing and Lucid is hard for i/l mages…and for all the jobs 😛

    the park theme is looking so unnecessary… i’m pertty sure i want NEO CITY to be open again. this is the only area that locked.

    the monsters in Arcana looks so cool. but no boss?

    • Max
      February 3, 2017 at 12:46 am

      The big monster at the end is the boss, but just a story boss like Arma for Road of Vanishing/Chewrup Tree in Chew Chew.

        Maybe he meant an actual boss like Lucid or so? I wonder if we would be facing Orchid or whoever that robed girl is or if she will just be aiding to go even further into the end of the Arcane river.

        • Nir
          February 3, 2017 at 4:23 am

          yeah, you’re were right on “no boss” 🙂

          Orchid and Lutos are really sad story.

          but WHERE IS THE BLACK MAGE.

    I feel Arcana is like Orchid and Lotus homeland. Those spirits looks alike to them when they were spirits as well the subconscious bunny from Orchid’s dream back on BH. What could Orchid want from this place? absorb power to become strong and face whoever challenges her? or is she just investigating to reach out Black Mage?

    Another thing is that whenever uncap is released, I’m sure it would be up to Lv 350.

    I can’t wait for the upcoming storylines to know more about this place!

    What makes you think that the mysterious girl is Orca?

    • Anonymous
      February 3, 2017 at 7:09 pm

      This. It looks more like beryl. Look at the hair color (assuming it’s not just lighting) and the way the bangs fall. Plus that’s similar to how she looked in black heaven when she had the poncho on.

    • Max
      February 3, 2017 at 9:03 pm

      The entire area is based off of spirits, and Orca (and Suu) are spirits of darkness that were given form by the Black Mage (who also created Arcane River!). Plus Orca’s storyline is unfinished from the end of Black Heaven, where she went to Guwaru to receive her true power.

      • Anonymous
        February 8, 2017 at 3:42 am

        The robed figure in the image could possibly be Francis as well since the bangs look very similar to his as they are flat and cover the eyes completely. Plus the hair looks kind of has this greenish tint to it.(even though it’s hard to tell what color it is in reality.)
        Furthermore, he did follow Orchid when she went to see Guwaru after the events of Black Heaven, thus completely possible that he went with Orchid to Arcana for currently unknown reasons. However, the robed figure could also possibly be a completely new character. But, given the theme of the area it makes sense that Nexon may be trying to continue Orchid’s storyline at some point.
        But, unfortunately we can only speculation who the robed figure is until the area comes out of the test server and has been fully explored/cleared, or Nexon tells who they are.

      No, 5th job skills are not affected by buff duration/cooldown reduction/cooldown resets.

      It took an exceptionally long period for pocket maplestory to make it’s way to the west. But considering the tie-in features and how well maple M is doing in KR, I wouldn’t be surprised if by this time next year we have it for GMS/EMS.

    I will be very honest. I find it quite boring hunting monsters down now a days. The structure of new maps are becoming way too simplistic, linear and predictable, which caters a lot to grinding rather than discovery and environmental interaction. Although the size of some maps have remained slightly the same, many maps have become smaller, and new maps have been created small as well. I think it would be far more exciting if they had bigger and more creatively structured maps like they did before pre-big bang. With the addition of more mobility skills in the recent years it has become way too easy to move through maps and grind on monsters. As a matter of fact, monsters are far too easy to defeat even without link skills, character card sets, etc. One reason being is that new and revamped skills within far out match the ordinary mobs and their combat abilities. I think monsters need revamps of their own. There needs to be some challenge in order to call it an adventure.
