    The final patch of the MapleStory Ark update has been released! The Sea of Beginning, Esfera, the sixth area of Arcane River, as well as the new boss, Commander Will are now available!



    Here’s the Maple Update Info Centre video for this patch.

    [​IMG]

    Here’s the Esfera background they have on the MapleStory homepage!

    The Sea of Beginning, Esfera

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The new Arcane River area, the Sea of Beginning, Esfera, has been added. Characters level 235 or higher who have completed the ‘It’s Not Time Yet’ quest in Morass can go to Esfera by accepting the ‘Strangers’ quest.



    The beginning of the end, a new world without Transcendents. Esfera, the Sea of Beginning is found at the end of Arcane River. The waves of life swaying in the blue light were beautiful enough to move your soul, but deep inside, the powerful aura of the end was sleeping.

    Here’s the new background music that was added in this patch.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The thing I found most interesting about the story that I can gleam from just extractions is that the Tana with purple hair and red clothes is actually Aiona, who is the Transcendent of Light of Grandis. She was said to be in the place where only the light could reach. The map on the left is the Temple of Light, in Esfera, but there’s another version of the map in Grandis. It seems Esfera is tied in with Grandis and its Transcendents somehow…

    In addition, the map on the right is called The Place Where She Slept, which could mean that Esfera is the place where Tana hid herself away after the events of Kritias. Hopefully we find out about her past and why she is so powerful! Also, the NPC beside her is just called ??? and seems to be able to transport through dimensions. He is probably pretty important as he’s the one that destroyed the Cygnus ship when you first enter Esfera and he shows up beside Will in the illustrations. Who could he be?

    I will hopefully be translating the story line just like I did with Morass and Ark as soon as possible, so keep an eye here or on my Twitter for when that’s done!

    Boss: Will

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Will, the ruler of the Mirror World has finally appeared in the Sea of Beginning, Esfera. You can meet him while completing the Esfera quests in the Corridor of Diffraction.

    You can fight Commander Will in a party of 1~6 people. Currently, there is only a Hard mode. Will’s boss map requires 760 Arcane Force.

    Mechanics


    [​IMG]

    A new mechanic that you will encounter as soon as you fight Will is the Moonlight Gauge. It will be a circle on your screen that fills up as you attack. When it’s completely filled, you’ll be able to use a special Moonlight skill, depending on which stage of Will you are on.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Will has a total of 3 stages, but some of his attacks are common across all of them. Randomly, Will will summon Beholders around the map, which will shoot out bullets either straight or diagonally.

    If you are hit by these bullets, your Moonlight Gauge will be decreased, so try to avoid them!

    [​IMG]

    Randomly, spider legs will shoot down from the sky.

    Phase 1

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    In Will’s first phase, he actually has three HP bars! He is actually in both the real world and the Mirror World, so you’ll have to fight him in both. At the top, you’ll see his red HP bar, which is his ‘true health’, when that hits 0 he’ll transition to phase 2.

    Below that one, you’ll see two thinner bars. One will be blue/purple and one will be grey. These two HP bars are his HP in the real world and the Mirror World. They are separate and will only go down when each version of Will is attacked. While in one world, you’ll see the other world’s HP bar as grey.

    [​IMG]

    Occasionally, Will will use his screen crack skill. After he does this, all 3 HP bars will be set to the same amount as the blue or purple HP bar with the highest remaining HP. For example, if the red bar was at 100%, the blue bar at 70%, and the purple bar at 50%, they would all be set to 70% HP remaining.

    Therefore, you’ll need good communication and coordination to split your party among the two worlds and whittle down the HP bars at a similar rate.

    [​IMG]

    Now, how can you attack him in two different worlds? You’ll need to use the Moonlight Gauge – Space Move skill, which allows you to move to the other dimension. T

    Phase 2

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    In phase two, you’ll be moved to a map with reflections of both your characters and Will on the ground. As you can see, Will’s reflection will attack while he is attacking as well, which means you’ll need to dodge not only his real attacks but also the attacks from his reflection that would hit yours.

    [​IMG]

    In addition, this phase blocks all forms of recovery. Again, you’ll need to charge up your Moonlight to use Moonlight Gauge – Health Recovery, which will allow you to use health recovering potions and skills once more.

    Phase 3

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    In phase 3, Will goes full spider king and transforms for most of his attacks. There’s not much information as no one reached this stage in KMST but maybe we’ll see some more videos soon.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    These three animations are titled Infection, with the last one being labelled After Host Death. Maybe this skill is a status that is inflicted one one person and can spread to others nearby, even after death?

    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    In this phase, Will seems to be able to summon spiderwebs that bind your movement (maybe something else, not sure). You can use the Moonlight Gauge – Spiderweb Removal skill to remove them when needed.

    Rewards


    [​IMG]

    A new 5th job Skill Core has been added. This skill cannot be acquired through Core Gemstones or Core Crafting. You can only receive it by using Mirror World’s Core Gemstones, which can be acquired from Will.

    You also receive one of these Gemstones after defeating Story Mode Will, so you can at least get level 1 without having to face the real boss haha.

    [​IMG]

    New Pocket items have been added. These are part of the Dark Boss set, along with the Rouge Control Machine Mark, Magic Eye Patch, Black Heart, and Dreamy Belt.

    Ark Mega Burning


    [​IMG]

    The Ark Mega Burning event will run from January 25 to February 7.

    [​IMG]

    When you create a new character during this event, you can choose to make them a Mega Burning character! Note that you cannot burn an Ark or Zero, and you can only do this once per world per Maple ID.

    Characters can only become Mega Burning characters when they are created. You cannot change your Mega Burning character but if you delete it, you can make another one.

    [​IMG]

    The main benefit of a Mega Burning character is the ability to gain two extra levels per level up. This effect will take place until level 130!

    [​IMG]

    You’ll also receive the Keep on Burning title which gives 10 all stats, 10 attack/magic attack, 10% boss damage, 10% defense ignore, and 400 HP/MP. The title can only be equipped after reaching level 130 and its stats will expire in 14 days.

    [​IMG]

    At level 100, you’ll receive the Legendary Secret Box which when opened will reward you with 2 Mastery Book 20’s, 2 Mastery Book 30’s, and a full Black set.

    [​IMG]

    At level 30, you’ll receive the Level 30 Equipment Box which is self-explanatory.

    [​IMG]

    Finally, when your Mega Burning character is created, it will receive a Snail pet that has 5 hours of magic. It comes with meso loot, item loot, auto loot, and auto HP/MP. You cannot use the Water of Life on it.

    Ark Sugar Time


    [​IMG]

    The Ark Sugar Time event will run for only one day, January 27, from 12 PM to 12 AM.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Characters level 33 or higher (or Zeroes who have completed Chapter 2) can access the Ark Sugar Time UI using the event icon. During this event, the amount of time that you are logged in will be recorded in the Ark Sugar Time UI.

    When you stay logged in for a total of 30/60/90/120 minutes, you can click the button on the UI to receive the following rewards:

    • 30 Minutes
      • 10 Ark Coins
    • 60 Minutes
      • 10 Ark Coins
      • 2x Experience Coupon (15 minutes)

      • Ark Sugar Coin Box (gives 10 Ark Coins the first time you open the box, then 5 additional coins per box opened)
      • 2x Experience Coupon (15 minutes)

    Once you have received all of the rewards above, your cumulative time will be reset and you can collect them starting from the beginning again. You can receive the rewards up to 5 times per Maple ID.

    Your cumulative time will be shared between all characters on your Maple ID and will continue to add up until you reach the maximum 120 minutes. Once you have reached the maximum number of rewards (5), you will no longer accumulate logged in time.

    Discovery Arena


    [​IMG]

    The Discovery Arena event will run from January 25 to February 7. Win battles to earn tremendous rewards!

    ~ this event is sorta complicated to understand just from the text so I’m gonna play it tomorrow and add information about it then ~

    Discovery Life


    [​IMG]

    The Discovery Life event will run from January 25 to February 7. Raise your own parrot to get unique colours and special buffs!

    [​IMG]

    When you start the quest, you’ll receive the Parrot Summon item. When you use it, you’ll summon your Parrot and it will give you various stat boosts.

    It can only be used until February 15.

    While hunting monsters around your level, they can drop 5 different colours of fruit, which will give you 50 Ark Points and that colour of fruit when you loot them.

    You can get up to 20,000 Ark Points per day through this method. There is no limit on the number of fruit you can loot or use in a day.

    [​IMG]

    You can use fruit in your inventory to change your Parrot’s colour and level it up. As your Parrot levels up (to a maximum of 10), the stat boosts will increase.

    The Parrot requires 40/60/80/100/120/140/160/180/200 fruit to level up. Every few levels, it will grow up!

    The Parrot gives 2~20 attack/magic attack, 2%~20% damage to regular monsters, 2%~20% damage to boss monsters, 2%~20% defense ignore, and 2%~20% critical rate, based on its level.

    In Discovery Link, you can only see and kill your own monsters. Monsters here also give 120% additional bonus experience. You can pay 10 Ark Coins to spawn 500 monsters. The daily limit of how many times you can spawn monsters is based on your level.

    • Level 100~119: 500 monsters
    • Level 120~139: 1,000 monsters
    • Level 140~159: 1,500 monsters

    The number of monsters remaining will be maintained even if you leave the map or disconnect from the game. You can also change the summoned monsters to others that are within 20 levels of your character level. However, Arcane River area monsters cannot be summoned unless you have access to the area.
