KMS ver. 1.2.360 – MapleStory Destiny: Adventurer Remaster!

January 27, 2022 56 comments

Adventurer Remaster

The second patch of the MapleStory Destiny update has been released! It contains the long-awaited Adventurer Remaster, as well as job balancing for all jobs and various system/QoL changes. This entire set of test world patches over the past month were some of the longest and most frequent in a very long time so I’m glad I can finally take a break haha.

However, since the Adventurer remaster is now finalized, I am planning to record videos showing them all off, especially because they added skill voices in the official server! Not sure when I can get them all out but I’ll try to start this weekend.

Also, I think I forgot to mention it before but I finally made a Patreon! A lot of people were asking me about this for a while so I set it up a couple of weeks ago. If you want to support me, you can check out the page! Of course, it’s not required, but white-listing my blog in your ad blocker would also help. All proceeds go into the blog’s yearly costs (and my NX addiction). 🙂

Phantom Blow Effect

A surprise test world patch was released today, with some changes to the Adventurer remaster! The planning team leader Kim Chang-seop wrote these notes and mentioned they released additional changes earlier than planned as a way of repaying players’ enthusiasm and support for this update.

The next set of changes should be released next week on January 18, which is also when they will be doing a balance patch for all jobs.

Maple Us: MapleStory Employee Blog

Maple Us

As mentioned in the Destiny Live Talk, Nexon has released a new website called Maple Us, where MapleStory employees (mostly programmers at the moment) have written various posts about what they work on and the processes they go through. The articles are genuinely really interesting and I was surprised at how in-depth they went! The site also works as a recruitment site where it lists out some of the benefits employees get, what jobs they’re currently hiring for, and how you can get in touch.

I’m definitely not going be translating these as the articles are pretty long and I’m way too lazy but if you’re interested in things like how features in-game get implemented from start to finish, or how their backend DBs work, things like that, it’s definitely worth a look (using Google Translate should be enough). However, since they just released it, I’ll just list out some of the things that popped out to me in each of the current articles.
