Yesterday Nexon has announced the next Major Game Update: Renegades! This update is almost the same as in KMS, which had the Justice update, some things are different. Nexon has also revealed a Teaser page for the upcoming Renegades, see it here! Read on to see what’s in this upcoming update! :)
Let’s start with the Renegades Teaser Page! As you can see in the picture above, three updates will take place during the Renegades update:
- Jett – Playable Character
- Phantom – Playable Character
- Hilla (& Azwan) – New Boss (& new Party Quest)
I will discuss all these things in the next part of the post.
First of all, Jett. Jett is a girl (which really surprised me), and she is the upcoming GMS exclusive character! We don’t know yet what ”job” she has, but we do know that she’s a criminal on a planet called Cerberus. Here’s something the Cerberus Rapid Reaction Force HQ said:
Citizens of Maple World:
A dangerous criminal has fled to your planet after committing a heinous crime (CLASSIFIED) against the planet Cerberus and its people. We are hereby offering a hefty reward to anyone with information leading to the identification and capture of the intergalactic terrorist known as “Jett.” Contact the Cerberus Rapid Reaction Force immediately with any leads.– Cerberus Rapid Reaction Force HQ
When you go to Jett’s Teaser Page, you’ll immediately notice Jett’s logo. It looks nice in my opinion!
Another interesting thing is the bar at the bottom of the screen which already has one out of the four trailers/pictures in it, which you can view here:
The last box in that bar says: ”Access granted on 6/27”. Does this mean Jett will arrive on June 27 or 28? I hope so!
[Update]: I think it will be June 27, since I think that ”D-19” thingy is a timer or so!
Well, I think this is currently as much information as I can give right now, stay tuned for more!
The next Renegades update will be the coming of the Phantom! The Phantom is the Thief Hero character, and uses a cane as primary weapon, and cards that serve as secondary weapon. He has a really interesting ability: he can ”steal” almost any skill of an Explorer character! That’s really nice!
Here’s the story of Phantom, quoted from maplestory.wikia.com. I don’t know if they are the direct owner of this story, but anyways, huge thanks to the one that wrote this:
A century ago, he was famous among the wealthy merchants and noblemen. He deliberately left traces when stealing, and even then people did not even know who he was. They called him “Phantom”.
Throughout the Maple World, Phantom was honored. However, the death of Aria, the Empress before Cygnus, with whom he had fallen in love with while trying to steal the great treasure of Ereve, caused him to join the Heroes to take revenge on the Black Mage. He seeked one of the heroes, Freud, for an invitation, and he was most welcome. After a fierce battle, he and the other four heroes sealed away the Black Mage and saved the Maple World. However, due to the curse inflicted by the Black Mage, all heroes except for Freud, who died in the battle, were trapped in ice and went into a deep sleep.
A hundred years later, Phantom reawakens from the curse. He infiltrates Ereve, where a meeting is being held. Hilla , a commander of the Black Wings poses as an Empress by showing a Skaia (a jewel said to glow in the hands of the Empress) that glows in her hands but doesn’t glow in Cygnus’s.
Luckily, Phantom comes to the rescue. He calls the Skaia held by Hilla a fake and destroys it, saying that the real Skaia is in his hands. This causes Hilla to back off and flee from Ereve. Phantom then gives Cygnus the real Skaia and returns to the Crystal Garden.
A friend who loved the Maple World has came back to defend the Maple World and battle the Black Mage a second time. The Phantom Thief has returned.
Relation with the Black Mage
Phantom was once one of the seven generals under the Black Mage by the name of Suoh. It was first mentioned he was once a of the Black Mage’s Commanders when his picture was shown in Inkwell’s Notebook. He bares a striking resembalence to another commander, Orchid, who is known to have a missing twin sibling. Perhaps he went “missing” when he sought revenge after the death of Aria.
The Phantom will arrive in GMS on July 2.
The third and last update will be the Fight for Azwan! Azwan (Aswan in KMS) is a town that was founded many years ago, but later it was destroyed, and Hilla took the lead of Azwan. Hilla will be a new boss to fight with! This update will also add a new Party Quest to MapleStory. That’s basically what Azwan is, a PQ!
Azwan and Hilla will join GMS on July 16.
That’s it for now, I hope to be able to collect more information soon. Happy Mapling!
P.S: Not any words were spoken about the Pirate & Thief revamp… Does that mean GMS will not going to do that update? We’ll see!
P.P.S: This is my 100th post! PARTEH!
