    More information about the MapleStory Ark update has been revealed in a video posted on the MapleStory homepage! I’ll translate it below.

    In addition, the first two parts of the update have been added to KMST, including changes to the V Core system, improved dailies, a new episode of Dimensional Library, and the new job, Ark! There’s a lot more so keep reading.

    Current status: Translated everything in the patch notes but I’m still working on adding details + images of Ark’s skills. I’ve been super busy today so it will probably be done by tomorrow. TL;DR: it’s basically a dark, edgy Eunwol clone :^)



    V Care (December 21)

    • Daily quests simplified
    • Matrix Points (V Core slot growth system)
    • Arcane Catalyst (system to transfer Arcane Symbols through the account)
    • 5th job advancement wait time removed
    • Elite Boss & Pollo and Fritto efficiency improvements
    • V Core experience preserved when enhancing
    • Minimum acquired Arcane Symbols increased
    • Ark Innocent Scroll
    • Road of Vanishing Hidden Hunting Grounds efficiency increased
    • Torrential Zone Bait improvements
    • Monster Park – Road of Vanishing
    • Burning Fields after maintenance improvements
    • “The moonlight is shining in Mirror World.”
    • “I cannot be the moon.”
    • Dimensional Library – Episode 5: Shadow Alchemist

    Ark (January 4)

    • A despicable scheme, a split relation, a disastrous tragedy.
    • “I will protect you… even if I become a monster!”
    • A boy who became a monster after a cruel fate, Ark.

    Esfera (January 25)

    • The end is coming… a new world without Transcendents.
    • Arcane River’s 6th area: Esfera
    • And Commander Will.
    • Finally, the curtain rises on the prelude of chaos.

    – MapleStory Ark –

    The stuff from the first two parts was actually just released today so I’ll go into more depth about that later, but the Esfera patch is very interesting! I was waiting for Will to return after Hilla mentioned that he wasn’t dead at the end of the Zero story. I guess he’ll be our next big boss!
