KMS ver. 1.2.366 – MapleStory Ignition: Cygnus Knights Remaster!

June 30, 2022 29 comments

Cygnus Knights Remaster

The first patch of the MapleStory Ignition update has been released! The Cygnus Remaster gives all of the Cygnus Knights, including Mikhail, an updated look and various improvements. This patch also contains various quality of life changes, Hyper Burning up to level 250, and the Ignition Fireworks Festival event!

In terms of the remaster, there were basically zero changes from the last test world patch until now (really disappointing tbh). I decided to just do a full skill translation so it won’t show the differences from before and after the remaster, but you can check the two KMST posts for those. There was one additional developer notes section for Wind Breaker which I’ll include here.

A new test world patch was released as scheduled, with some more changes to the Cygnus remaster skills, as well as the updated story. The patch also includes more QoL improvements and the events we will be getting (which will be covered next week).

Shortly afterwards, the director Won-ki did a live video on YouTube addressing some of the main complaints people had with this patch, such as the new Hyper Burning event’s rewards being lackluster and the new Cygnus voices being too meme-y and bad.

KMST ver. 1.2.142 – MapleStory Ignition Showcase & Cygnus Remaster

MapleStory Ignition

Yesterday, the MapleStory Ignition Showcase took place where they talked about the stuff coming this summer! Afterwards, the test world was opened with the initial changes of the Cygnus Remaster.

For the skill changes, the patch notes were a little vague this time around for some reason and I was also pretty busy this weekend so I’m just going to translate them as they were given and only give additional detail for the newly added skills. The patch notes also were missing some of the skills that were updated so I added those in where I noticed them. Some of the skill changes were actually quite extensive but I didn’t have a chance to fully cover them, so I’m thinking I will continue to just translate the patch notes like this and then when the changes are pushed to the official server, I’ll do a full skill translation just like I did with the Adventurer Remaster to make it easier to understand.

2022 Maple Live Talk!

2022 Maple Live Talk

Yesterday, the 2022 Maple Live Talk took place in Korea. The general director Kang Won-ki and the planning team director Kim Chang-seop answered questions sent in by players and talked about what they could do to improve the game accordingly. It was seriously long, about 5 hours, but I’ll try to summarize the questions that were asked and their answers.

At the very end, they even teased the summer update, and announced the MapleStory Ignition Showcase which will take place on June 11. This will presumably show off the Cygnus remaster and other things coming this summer, similar to the MapleStory Destiny Showcase in December!

KMS ver. 1.2.363 – MapleStory’s 19th Anniversary: Maple Momentree!

19thEvent.0

MapleStory is turning 19 years old! The 19th anniversary, Maple Momentree, will take place over the next two months. This patch also includes a ton of quality of life changes, a new boss matching system, story updates, and skill improvements!

The Maple Live Talk will take place on May 1 and will probably be our first glimpse of what’s coming up after this. If I had to guess, May’s patch will include the aforementioned Mu Lung Dojo and Union expansions and then June will be our summer patch with the Cygnus remaster and Odium.
