    Will the weekly quests for Kritias be the same as the daily quests or will their difficulty be increased? I can live with only getting three anti-magic stones a week instead of up to seven if I only have to do the equivalent of one day of quests.

    I mean, I could just finish grinding my way to Tyrant Gloves before this patch hits GMS but laziness and all.

    • Max
      January 3, 2019 at 10:57 pm

      They’re the same quests as before. I think you get 2 from the first area, 2 from the second area, and 1 from the last area but I’m not too sure.

    Happy New Years and I am loving what I see, Thank god for the Hyper Stats and reduction of meso’s for symbol increase, Just wish they give more hyper skill SP so I can upgrade some of my other stuff.

    Overall this looks great….Sadly I got some time….A LOT of time to wait for this to hit GMS unless they do a giant out of no where bulk update.

    Are the new wama hyper stats affected by % from potentials?

    • Max
      January 4, 2019 at 5:54 pm

      Not sure, the description in game for STR/INT/DEX/LUK says specifically that they’re not affected by % but the one for attack/magic attack doesn’t say anything.

    “The amount of time required to reach level 30 for Adventurers, Aran, Evan, and Resistance has been greatly decreased.”
    So what exactly does this mean?

    • Max
      January 4, 2019 at 6:14 pm

      I think they buffed the experience the job quests give so you level up faster from them like newer classes.

  13. January 4, 2019 at 2:17 pm

      Regarding your question on Temple of Time/Kritias, I added them to MapleStory fandom. Here’s a link to start, you can browse through the other level ranges:

      January 4, 2019 at 6:15 pm

      I’m not gonna post the new monster levels its too annoying and I don’t see the benefit of knowing them lol.
      The quests are the same as before, you just get all of them at the same time.
      Yeah all the statues spawn at the start and when you kill them all then PB will appear.

      • January 5, 2019 at 9:03 am

  14. January 4, 2019 at 6:20 pm

    Should mention Arcane Force Hyper Stat only increases Arcane Force itself – Not the Arcane Symbol main stat. Also, clarify the Star Force damage increase only applies to Star Force maps(?).

      Max always waits to post about the events till the main world opens up because they sometimes remove events entirely (like the double miracle time kms had on tespia, but not on the main game) and really often change them a bunch.
