GMS v.104 – Legends – Part one [Patch Notes]


Hi there people! I’m a little bit late with this, but I cannot not post the Patch Notes for the Legends update that has already gone live. Like I wrote in my previous post, there are many new and changed things, like of course the Cannoneer, revamped Battle Mode and Professions system and many more cool things. Things I didn’t mention before are tons of new Events. I will explain them all (well, all that have started) to you in a future post. That would probably be this weekend.

Note these are only the Patch Notes from the MapleStory website which I copied. A post with my experiences of this update will also be done this weekend I think. Since I don’t have much time to write on my blog now, because of school and stuff, I’m not sure of the dates those post will come. However, they will come :). Well, here are the Patch notes:

(To see them, click ”Read more of this post” first!)
