GMS v.121 – Rise Against


The new update called Rise Against has been released! This update brings some new and changed content to MapleStory. The Resistance classes have got some skill changes, and there are some changes for the Battle Square and Hilla Expedition too. Other than that, the Cash Shop has been totally revamped. Lastly, there’s some new content, which includes a new boss: Chaos Pink Bean and a new theme dungeon: Sakura Castle. Oh, and of course there are some new events! Please read on!

This is the new world selection background.

New Boss: Chaos Pink Bean

A stronger version of Pink Bean has been added: Chaos Pink Bean! Players who are level 170 or above (while 190+ is recommended) can take on Chaos Pink Bean in an expedition of at least three members, with a maximum of 30 members. Chaos Pink Bean is an enhanced version of the normal Pink Bean, which means Chaos Pink bean is stronger, and has more HP. It is located in the Temple of Time: Deep Inside the Temple.

You can try to kill Chaos Pink Bean twice per day. However, you’re only permitted to kill it once per day, so if you kill it in your first try, you can’t try it again.

Chaos Pink Bean can drop his own equipment, Timeless equipment, Fearless recipes, Mystery Mastery Books, Clean Slate Scrolls, and Advanced Equip Enhancement Scrolls, as well as some other nice loot.

The Theme Dungeon is for players of level 70 and above and it consists of 16 quests which you have to complete around and in the castle. After you’ve completed the quests you may defeat the boss: Gigatoad.

After you’ve accepted the quest “Tae Gong’s Request: This is NOT a fish“, the quest chain starts. You’ll then be asked to go to Wiz, the Librarian. Wiz gives you the next quest and a book which you can use once to teleport to Sakura Castle.

From this point and on, you can enter the Theme Dungeon by using the Dimensional Mirror.

There are also rewards for killing the Gigatoad and completing the quest chain. Like King .For defeating Gigatoad you get a box which can contain equipment from level 60 to 70. There’s a possibility that you get a Musashi Hat out of it:

Cash Shop Revamp

The Cash Shop has undergone a total revamp! The resolution has changed to 1024 x 768, and everything has become way more easy to find.

A new feature is that you can now ”like” an item. If you sort the items by likes, you can see the items that are the most popular among the Maplers.

The renewed menu is displayed a lot better too. Not only can you distinguish all tabs better, new ”sub”tabs have been added too, so you can see all kinds of hats, for example.
