March Game Update: Grand Athenaeum

[Update] – The release date of the update has been confirmed. Grand Athenaeum will hit GMS on March 26th!

It has been a long time since there was something exciting going on in the Maple World, but finally there’s some news. An Update Spotlight video about the upcoming update Grand Athenaeum has been uploaded to YouTube a just now. It features quite some new content. For example, Boss Battle will be made available, a new Theme Dungeon called Grand Athenaeum will be added, and more. I guess there isn’t much to explain for me; everything that you need to know is explained in the video below!

Once more information becomes available, I’ll let you guys know!

Beast Tamer Teaser Page!

A couple of days ago a new playable character class was announced by Nexon, called the Beast Tamer. This character uses a ton of skills using her bear, snow leopard, hawk, and cat. Nexon has also released Beast Tamer’s Teaser Pagewhere you currently cannot see a lot of information, other than a weird (but cute) animated video that you can also watch below.

Spadow has also uploaded a very informative video of the Chinese MapleStory Test Server where you can see a lot of the Beast Tamer’s Skills. As you can see in the video, Beast Tamer’s ‘map’ is located in Dawnveil, just under Commerci.

I’m told that Beast Tamer will be released in GMS, JMS and CMS on January 15, but I’m not completely sure about that. I’ll let you know when there’s more information.

Happy Mapling!

Happy 2014!

In this post I would like to wish everybody a nice and safe 2014! I thought Google’s New Year doodle fits in this post, haha. In case you’re interested in my 2013 year in blogging, it’s right here!

I hope 2014 is both gonna be a good year for me and you, but also for MapleStory! I hope I can keep blogging for some more time.

RED: Zero – Update Highlights

RED’s second update, Zero, has been announced. This new playable character is being released on December 18th and Nexon has published the Update Highlights and a trailer of the update.

Oh, and before I show you the Update Highlights, I want to say this: I’m truly sorry I haven’t published a post about the first RED update, First Impact, yet. Again, the problem is that I’m just too busy to spend enough time on my blog. I will, however, upload a video of the new Explorer’s tutorial, and I will write a post about Zero, when it’s released.

Dawnveil: Demons of Tynerum

After taking a break of more than a month, I finally feel like blogging again! In my last post I said that I was gonna write a complete post about the next update in MapleStory. Well, it seems that things turned out differently. This Friday, I came back from a schooltrip to Italy. We had lots of fun there! Anyway, I didn’t expect an update to be released while I was away.  The update is already out for five days now, so I think it would be a little pointless to write a complete post about it. I’ll just go over the most important things in the update Dawnveil: Demons of Tynerum! Please read on.
