Spring! Spring Project

Maple Guide

The Maple Guide has been improved.

  • The recommended quests/hunting grounds for each level provided by the Guide have been changed to be more appropriate.
  • Certain recommended quests’ experience rewards have been increased, and the number of monsters or items required has been decreased so quests will now take less time to complete.
  • The number of areas that can be moved to using Quick Move have been greatly increased. You can unlock the ability to move to specific towns and monster maps by completing the quest lines or defeating a certain number of monsters.
  • The Quick Move Favourites feature has been added to make it easier to teleport to frequently used areas. You can select 10 areas which will always be displayed on the main page at the bottom.
  • When you reach certain conditions, you will now be given the following rewards, once per world.

Sprout Rewards

The Growing Sprout title gives 10 all stats, 500 HP/MP, 5 attack/magic attack, 10% additional experience, and 30 Star Force, and the stats expire in 90 days. The Growing Sprout Weapon gives 3 attack/magic attack, the stats expire in 1 week. The Dream Tree medal gives 4 all stats, 200 HP/MP, and 2 attack/magic attack.

Developer Notes:

In the Maple Guide improvements, the recommendations and quest efficiency have been improved so that character growth can be achieved easily just by completing the quests until level 200. In addition, to further enhance the ‘Quick Move’ which was a main feature of the Maple Guide, the number of areas you can teleport to have been increased from 43 towns and 21 maps to 66 towns and 107 maps. Finally, we would like to help players who are exploring Maple World for the first time by providing rewards when they reach certain levels/job advancements to make it easier for them to adapt.

Arcane River area story quests’ clear records will now be shared between characters in the same world, and a Story Skip feature has been added.

  • If there is at least one character in the same world that has completed all of the story quests, other characters can skip the story of those quests.
  • If you skip the quests, you will receive a summary of that area’s story.
  • If you skip the quests, all related quests will be completed and you will receive all item rewards. However, you will not receive the experience rewards.

Pink Bean Boss UI

If there is at least one character in the same world that has completed all of the pre-quests for Caoong, Papulatus, Von Leon, Arkarium, Pink Bean, Cygnus, Magnus, or Guardian Angel Slime, it has been improved so that other characters can automatically enter those bosses.

Black Mage Practice Mode

Black Mage’s Practice Mode has been added.

  • It can be used up to 20 times per day, regardless of the type of boss monster.
  • You cannot acquire experience or rewards.

Jin Hilla Entry

When entering Jin Hilla, you will now enter immediately without having to complete the Labyrinth of Suffering dungeon.

In Jin Hilla, the number of NPC Chat/Harvest key inputs required to recover los souls from the Soul Altar has been changed to be based on the number of party members.

  • 1 party member: 10 inputs
  • 2 party members: 15 inputs
  • 3 party members: 20 inputs
  • 4 party members: 25 inputs
  • 5 party members: 30 inputs

※ The number of party members is calculated based on the number of people in the map when the Altar is created.

Seren (Phase 2)

In Chosen Seren phase 2’s Mitra’s Power pattern, the height of the safe spots has been adjusted so that characters will not get hit even if they are not crouching.

Masteria's Arcane Stone

The 5th job advancement quests have been improved.

  • You can now complete the 5th job advancement without the ‘Preparing for a New Power’ quest that required 100 Star Force.
  • The conditions for completing the ‘Masteria’s Arcane Stone’ quest have been changed. Instead of finding the Horizon portal, you must now kill all the monsters to pass the Goddess’ test.
  • The ‘Another Power, Arcane Force’ quest’s completion requirements have been changed from defeating 10 Happy Erdas to 1 Happy Erda.
  • The ‘Another Power, Arcane Force’ quest’s Arcane Symbol has been changed to increase Arcane Force by 40 when equipped.
  • When you complete the ‘[Road of Vanishing] Arcane Symbol: Road of Vanishing’ quest, the Arcane Symbol: Road of Vanishing you are given has been changed to be level 2.

Link Skill Presets

The Link Skill preset feature has been added.

  • 3 presets are provided, and you can change each preset to have your desired Link Skills.
  • You can select the desired preset and click the Apply button to use it. The total transfer cost will be determined based on the number of remaining transfers for each Link Skill in the preset, and any Link Skills with 0 remaining transfers cannot be transferred.

※ When a preset is applied, any Link Skills that are currently applied but are not in the new preset will be removed.

Keyboard Shortcuts Presets

The Keyboard Shortcuts preset feature has been added.

  • 3 presets are provided, and you can change each preset to have your desired shortcuts.
  • 3 new preset hotkeys have been added which you can use to change your keyboard shortcut presets.

The Skill Alarm feature for when a skill’s cooldown ends has been added, and the quickslots’ displayed cooldowns have been improved.

  • When a skill with a cooldown is registered in the Skill Alarm window, a notification effect will be activated when the skill’s cooldown ends.
  • You can register up to 6 skills in the Skill Alarm.
  • When a skill’s cooldown is less than 60 seconds, the remaining cooldown displayed in the quickslot has been improved to be more visible.

When an Elite Boss is defeated, the Bonus Stage has been removed and experience orbs will be dropped as rewards.

Facial Expression Keywords

When you have a facial expression item and enter keywords related to each item in the chat window, it has been improved so that the expression is applied automatically.

Fritto

The experience rewards from Fritto’s Bounty Hunting have been increased.

2x Experience Coupon (15 Minutes)

Monster Park’s Sunday Growth Boxes and Saturday Festival Boxes have been changed to give 2x Experience Coupon (15 Minutes) instead of 1.5x Experience Coupons (30 Minutes).

Dusk Debris

In Dusk (Normal/Chaos), the images of the 3 kinds of Void Fragments that appear have been improved to be more easily distinguishable.

Character Creation

The character creation screen has been improved so that if you move the selection cursor to the left on the first character, you can choose the last character. Similarly, moving the selection cursor to the right on the last character will choose the first character.

Union Attack Power

For Union attack power, the increase based on the character level has been improved so that it is increased for every 10 levels from level 250 and higher.

For Union attack power, the increase based on Star Force has been improved so that it is increased when Star Force is 380 or higher and 400 or higher.

When you login to the game, if you are wearing a pendant in an expired pendant slot, it has been improved so that a notification message is displayed in the chat window.

Maple World General Stores

Maple World general stores have been improved to include arrows, Subi throwing stars, bullets, Return to Nearest Town Scrolls, Lie Detectors, Appearance Return Vouchers, Silver Karma Scissors, Pet Food, Mastery Book 20, and Mastery Book 30.

A new recovery potion item, the Sprout Potion, has been added which heals 5000 HP and MP. The Sprout Potion can be purchased from all general stores in Maple World for 1000 mesos each.

Cash Shop New Font

The Cash Shop font has been changed to improve readability.

In the Cash Shop preview, white and black backgrounds have been added.

Cash decoration items and other Cash items (excluding pets) that were restricted from being moved to the Cash Shop’s wardrobe can now be moved there.

Monster Life Release Lock

In Monster Life, a Monster Release Lock feature has been added. You can use this feature to prevent the accidental release of monsters.

Buddy Login Alert

The buddy login notification has been improved. When an account buddy logs in, the character name and the buddy memo’s nickname will be displayed together to make it easier to identify who they are.

Trade Meso Units

When trading, it has been improved so that when you enter mesos, they will be displayed with 억/만 units.

V Core Enhance Select All

When enhancing V Cores, it has been improved so that you can Select All enhancement material cores at once.

A notification message has been added for when you cannot swap equipment due to lack of inventory slots.

The quest window’s navigation feature has been improved so that it can be used even when the world map window is open.

Disabled Pet Auto Buff Skills

Pet buff skills will now remain in the equipment window in a deactivated status even when you unequip your pets.

Chat Commands

Chat shortcuts have been added. You can register frequently used messages as shortcut keys or commands and use them as needed.

In the Auction House, when selling items, you can now use the Tab key to move through the price and quantity input windows and use the Enter key to register the items for sale.

Chew Chew Island and Lacheln area’s beginning quests have been improved. New quests that automatically start have been added to make it easier to start these areas’ quests. If you have already completed Chew Chew Island or Lacheln quests, you will not be able to complete these quests.

Cobweb Droplet Stone

The descriptions of certain items like main crafting materials or items used to trade in for coins have been changed. Things like the items’ uses and the locations of the NPCs where you can exchange them have been added.

New Boss Difficulty Additions

Easy Will

Will (Easy Mode) has been added. It requires 560 Arcane Force (as opposed to 760 Arcane Force for Normal/Hard Mode). In terms of difficulty, it is between Easy Lucid and Normal Lucid.

Normal Jin Hilla

Jin Hilla (Normal Mode) has been added. It requires 900 Arcane Force (the same as Hard Jin Hilla). In terms of difficulty, it is between Hard Will and Chaos Guardian Angel Slime.

Normal Chosen Seren

Chosen Seren (Normal Mode) has been added. It requires 150 Authentic Force for phase 1 and 200 Authentic Force for phase 2 (the same as Hard Chosen Seren). In terms of difficulty, it is between Hard Dunkel and Black Mage.

Mileage quests related to the new boss difficulties have been added. Achievements related to the new boss difficulties have been added.

Developer Notes:

For certain boss sections, there was a problem where the difficulty to reach the next level of bosses was too high, reducing the desire to challenge them. To make it easier to move from boss to boss, we wanted to present new challenge goals by adding Easy Will, Normal Jin Hilla, and Normal Chosen Seren, where characters can naturally challenge the next difficulty boss as they grow.

Boss Accessory Set Additions and Reorganization

The Dawn’s Boss Set has been added.

  • The Guardian Angel Ring has been changed to be included in the Dawn’s Boss Set.
  • The Dawn’s Boss Set consists of the following 4 items:
    • Twilight Mark [Level 140 Face Accessory] (can be acquired from Normal/Hard Lucid and Normal/Hard Will, tradeable until equipped)
    • Estella Earrings [Level 160 Earrings] (can be acquired from Normal/Chaos Dusk and Normal/Hard Dunkel, tradeable until equipped)
    • Guardian Angel Ring [Level 160 Ring] (can be acquired from Normal/Chaos Guardian Angel Slime, tradeable until equipped)
    • Daybreak Pendant [Level 140 Pendant] (can be acquired from Normal/Hard Jin Hilla and Normal/Hard Seren, tradeable until equipped)
  • The Dawn’s Boss Set‘s set effects are as follows.

Dawn's Boss Set

Achievements related to the new accessories have been added.

Developer Notes:

The Pitched Boss Set is difficult to acquire and the burden of enhancing them is very high, so many players used regular boss accessories with relatively lower enhancement limits or accessories with no set effects. The newly added Dawn’s Boss Accessory set is designed to fill the gap between existing accessories and the Pitched Boss accessories. We would like to provide a new option for combinations and growth for accessory parts that haven’t been changed for a long time.

In addition, we expect that by providing these equipment as new rewards from higher tier bosses, it will make challenging bosses more enjoyable.

Genesis Badge

The Pitched Boss Set’s set effects have been reorganized.

Pitched Boss Set Reorganization

Developer Notes:

Even though all the Pitched Boss set items have very high acquisition difficulties, the 8th and 9th items equipped did not receive set effects so there was a problem where the items’ effectiveness was low. By adding new set effects this time, we want to improve their effectiveness and under the same standards of enhancements, prevent the loss of stats when changing equipment from the Dawn’s Boss set to the Pitched Boss set.

In Reboot World, when you acquire mesos and there are no party members in the same map, a notification message about the reduced mesos has been added.
