The third Legendary Hot Time event is coming on January 14! I think this is also the last Legendary Hot Time, since there are no more Legends updates coming (I guess). You have to be online between 2:30 and 2:31 PM PST in order to receive a box which contains nice stuff again! However, it’s recommended to be logged in at least 5 minutes before 2:30, because MapleStory is very crowded around these times. Also if you didn’t receive your box in this minute, don’t go offline! No, just wait some more seconds/minutes. The box can be opened from 3:00 PM to 11:59 PM the same day.
There’s also the 2x EXP event going on before and after the Hot Time. Read on to see all the rewards you get and may get!
A Hot Time event box always contains items that you get at an 100% chance! Here they are:
1 AP Reset Scroll which can reset all your assigned AP.
1 Storm Growth Potion which can instantly raise you one level if you’re below max level. This item is time limited.
1 Devil Horns (scroll down for the stats of this equip!)
1 SP Reset Scroll which can reset all 1st – 4th job SP.
1 Unidentified Love Letter which can give a random amount of Fame.
1 of these items which gives you Exp for one trait.
These are the stats of the Devils Horn. It’s a bit the same as the Elven Tiara which we got in the previous Legendary Hot Time event, but it looks different. This is a good hat for the Demon Slayer (extra stats).
There are also items you might get, so not 100% chance:
|Hero of Legend badge
Lv. 140 weapons:
Timesplitter One-handed Axe
Timesplitter One-handed Hammer
Lionheart Battle Scimitar
Timesplitter Two-handed Axe
Timesplitter Two-handed Hammer

Here’s a picture of some of the listed items above.
And the stats of the Hero of Legend badge, which is also a great equipment:
I think these are all the rewards you can get from this Legendary Hot Time! Oh, and two more things:
The 2x EXP event is from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. (That’s every weekend day until January 31. There’s a 2x EXP from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM during the week days.)
Last thing just some information to be sure to get your reward. (Quoted from the MapleStory site:
Some restrictions apply to Hot Time. In order to participate, you must:
- Be logged in to a character that is level 13 or above.
- Have space in your inventory to receive the box.
- Be logged in for the whole minute from 2:30 PM – 2:31 PM server time.
- Be in the main map of a town or hunting map that is regularly accessible.
- Make sure your character is alive.
- Have space in your inventory to open the box and receive the rewards inside.
Moments before Hot Time and until Hot Time is past, please do not engage in any activity – simply relax!
- Do not change channels.
- Do not engage in any quests.
- Do not enter the Cash Shop or MTS.
- Do not talk to any NPCs or use Gachapon.
- Do not use your inventory or storage.
- Do not manage your wedding wish list.
- Do not enter a mini-dungeon.
- Do not use a ship or other timed method of transit between locations.
It is also strongly recommend that you spread out to prevent the chances of slowing down your connection. Some recommended ways of doing this are:
- Logging in well before 2:30 PM.
- Being in a town that isn’t heavily frequented by other Maplers.
- Being in a channel that is less populated than others.
- Avoiding being clustered in large groups.
- Avoiding performing graphically intensive skills. Remaining still is best.
- Avoiding Maplers or monsters that might be performing graphically intensive skills.
That’s it. Hope to get a new Hot Time event soon!
