    A couple of days ago was the Lucid Dream Festa, an event held at Lotte World in Seoul to announce the winter update, titled Dreamer! It included the various events for the winter, the new Union Artifact system, new Mastery Cores and a Common Core, a new Epic Dungeon system, and various quality of life improvements. Shortly after, the test server opened with some of the content mentioned in the showcase.

    Lucid Dream Festa

    • Lucid Dream Festa
      • This is both the name of the showcase and the overall event in-game. Lucid previously had been themed around nightmares, but in this update, she now has happy dreams. A lot of the characters you met in Lacheln also have a different look, like the Cleaner who is now a flashy masked gentleman and the Ragdoll who is much happier than before.
    • Midnight Party
      • This is the main event for the winter update, similar to the Identisk Island event.
      • The Daily Party rewards can be claimed just by logging in. The Weekly Party rewards (including EXP Vouchers) can be claimed by defeating monsters 3 days per week.
      • The previous summer amd winter events lasted 8 weeks but this one will last 13 weeks (Midnight Party lasts 12 weeks). Since 2023 was the 20th anniversary, they really wanted to make this the year of MapleStory so they prepared a fitting end with even better rewards.
      • The final Daily Party reward is a Transcendent Growth Potion, which gives one level up when used, up to level 269.
      • The final Weekly Party reward is a Dream Lucidroid and Fairy Heart.
    • Coin Shops
      • The Dream Fragment Shop is the normal coin shop.
      • The Night Fragment Shop is the weekly boss coin shop.
      • There is also a Meso Shop.
      • The Dance Fragment Shop is a shop where you can spend coins you get from minigames in the Monster Arcade to buy special outfits (including some from overseas and from Maple M that players requested).
      • You can exchange Dream Fragments for Dance Fragments, for players who want more cosmetic items rather than the regular coin shop items.
    • Dream Messenger
      • The Dream Messenger skill includes the temporary stats as usual, but it also has new additional types of stats you can level up (increased Sol Erda drops from bosses, experience from Bounty Hunting, Runes, Monster Park, extra Symbols/experience from daily quests).
    • Experience Events
      • They brought back all of the experience related events that players enjoyed from the summer update (Lacheln Winter Feast skill for experience while hunting, Midnight Dream Catcher for hunting special mobs like Food Storage, Galina’s Tomato Festival which is an experience Punch King, and Dreamer Zero to One Hundred).
    • Goldrich’s Treasure Hunt
      • The Goldrich’s Treasure Hunt event expands on the tradable event items they have been adding recently. Over the event, different items will drop from monsters, the first month being VIP Boosters.
    • Hyper Burning & Tera Blink
      • The Hyper Burning event has been improved with better rewards and gives access to a new area called Tera Blink that is a special map you can use to level up from 10~200 within 15~20 minutes.
      • This will also have special tutorials for new players for job advancements, Spell Traces, Star Force hunting grounds, the Toad’s Hammer system, and Hyper Skills/Stats.
      • Burning World also has an updated Step Up UI and rewards. You can also World Leap early starting from the 9th week of the event, instead of having to wait until the end of the update.
    • Sunday Maple
      • Shining Star Force Time will take place on January 7.
      • Miracle Time will take place on January 14.
    • Union Artifact
      • This is a new growth system that is replacing Monster Life. You can grow your crystals to get time-limited stats to all characters in the same world.
      • You must complete Artifact Missions to get Artifact Experience to increase your levels. They include things you would naturally do while playing the game such as doing your dailies, defeating bosses, and completing certain quests.
      • When you complete Normal and Boss Missions, you will also get Artifact Points that you can use to acquire desired stats.
      • You can equip between 3 and 9 Crystals. You can use your Artifact Points to increase your crystals’ levels and assign the stats you want. Based on the levels, the stats will be increased. You can also extend the duration of these stats using Artifact Points.
      • You can get the following stats from Union Artifact (including all the ones players used in Monster Life):
        • Main stat
        • Attack/magic attack
        • HP/MP
        • Damage
        • Critical rate
        • Critical damage
        • Boss damage
        • Defense ignore
        • Status resistance
        • Item drop rate
        • Meso acquisition
        • Additional experience acquisition
        • Buff duration
        • Cooldown skip
        • Summon duration
        • Final Attack skills’ damage
      • You can naturally acquire Artifacts through content you are already participating in. Their main goal was to avoid having an RNG experience (like Monster Life) or requiring additional work outside of normal gameplay.
      • You will also acquire Artifact Experience and levels based on your previous Monster Life Level. You won’t be at exactly the same level as before but a lot of players should be able to enjoy the effects they had in Monster Life very quickly. In addition, they designed the system so that if you continue to grow, it will be better than what you had in Monster Life.
      • Unlike Monster Life, this system is available in Reboot World. Together with this, Reboot World’s final damage will be adjusted.
    • New Mastery Cores
      • Unlike the first set of Mastery Cores which was generally focused on bosing, this set didn’t have a unified purpose. Instead, they looked at each job and made a Core that supplemented what they needed at this point in time. For example, classes with weaker mobbing were given stronger mobbing skills like Ice/Lightning (Frozen Orb will be more useful when grinding) and Demon Slayer (changing Demon Explosion to be a single-hit skill, a new gimmick that fires Demonic Orbs). Classes that needed a bit of a boost in bossing were given skills like Aran (changing the way Hunter’s Targeting works) and Wild Hunter (updating all of the Jaguar skills). This is their goal going forward, rather than just enhancing the performance of existing skills, they want to upgrade them and give a more complete combat experience to all classes. This is something they’re doing in this set as well, for classes like Luminous and Soul Master that are getting new special passives. They want every Mastery Core to be worth it to level up so they will add other effects as needed.

    • New Common Core
      • Sol Janus: Twilight (mark type passive skill) or Sol Janus: Dawn (install type active skill).
      • This new Common Core gives up to 50% additional experience acquisition.
      • The goal for this Common Core was to be a meaningful skill in hunting and character progression. Janus is a god with two faces, so you can choose between the two different forms on the skill. You can choose whichever will let you hunt more comfortably and easily. The passive buff was added for players that didn’t necessarily need the added mobbing benefit as well.
    • Epic Dungeon: High Mountain
      • This is new content for players that have completed the 6th job advancement, and will expand on the overall story and give new types of combat experiences.
      • You can acquire large amounts of Sol Erda and experience every week. In Reboot, you can also get Sol Erda Fragments.
      • The first Epic Dungeon takes place in the area of High Mountain, home of the Celestial race, right after Cernium. Seren returns to High Mountain to try and repair the destroyed Holy Sword Azor, where she meets the ancient god Mitra as well as other ancient demons.
      • You can choose to do it one at a time or all at once, but it takes a bit of time to do it all at once (unlike other existing weekly content).
      • They also want to add dungeon-only skills that let you defeat more than 15 monsters at the same time, so that you can have a fast pace dungeon-crawling experience that previously was not possible in MapleStory.
    • Improvements
      • You can open multiple Core Gemstones at the same time.
      • You can upgrade all of your equipped Cores at the same time.
      • Changsup actually mentioned that it’s really late to be doing this since 6th job is already out, but it’s still something that should be added and so they worked on it. And it can still be useful as many players are still working on their 5th job Cores, either on their main or side characters.
      • Monster Park Extreme has been added to the party recruitment window.
      • Combat power information has been added to the party recruitment system.
      • Boss entry limits have been removed.
        • The entry interface has been improved. Instead of a simple text box for all bosses, they added a pretty and functional UI together with the Practice Mode update.
      • You can now pick and choose various buffs and skills to use when entering Practice Mode bosses.
        • You can choose to receive Guild Skills, Heaven’s Door, Echo, various buff potions and items when you enter Practice Mode.
      • Black Heaven and Heroes of Maple story reorganization.
        • You can now enter Suu and Demian without having to complete them.
        • For Black Heaven, the story has not been changed but the overall play time and cutscenes have been shortened to make it faster.
        • For Heroes of Maple, they have drastically updated the story (important points like things related to Abraxas, the Transcendent Stone, the relationship between Masteria and Friends World).
      • Arcane River hunting grounds terrain improvements.
      • Grandis hunting grounds’ Elite Monsters/Elite Champions/Runes will now be instanced.
      • Grandis hunting grounds’ Elite Bosses will return.
      • Experience acquired from defeating Elite Bosses has been increased.
      • Rune reorganization.
        • Rune of Regeneration and Rune of Treasures removed.
        • The remaining Runes have been improved to be better when hunting. The Rune of Giants has been changed so that you can transform by pressing the NPC Chat key one more time, instead of transforming instantly.
      • Maple Auction’s Cash category can now be filtered by gender.

    • You can collect Artifact EXP to grow your Artifact Level. As your Artifact Level increases, you will be given Artifact AP which is used to grow Crystals, the limit for holding Artifact Points will be increased, and the number of usable Crystals will be increased at certain levels.
    • Artifact Points are used change Artifact Crystal’s stats, extend their duration, and reset AP.
    [​IMG]

    You can acquire various stats through Artifact Crystals.

    • Depending on your Artifact Level, you can use a specific number of Crystals.
      • Level 1 or higher: 3 Crystals
      • Level 10 or higher: 4 Crystals
      • Level 20 or higher: 5 Crystals
      • Level 30 or higher: 6 Crystals
      • Level 40 or higher: 7 Crystals
      • Level 50 or higher: 8 Crystals
      • Level 60: 9 Crystals
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    • Each Crystal can have 3 different types of stats from the following list. You can change the combination of stats to any combination of your choice through the [Stat Conversion] feature. Each stat can go up to level 10.
      • All Stats (up to 150)
      • Max HP/MP (up to 7500)
      • Attack/Magic Attack (up to 30)
      • Damage (up to 15%)

    • Crystals can grow in rank by using Artifact AP. They can go up to level 5.
    Growth StageStat Level BoostConsumed Artifact AP
    Level 11–
    Level 221
    Level 332
    Level 442
    Level 553

    ※ When using the AP Reset feature, it will consume 500 Artifact Points to reset the rank growth status of all Artifacts.

    [​IMG]
    • The Artifact effect is applied by adding up all of the stat level boosts of all Crystals. However, each stat will only apply up to level 10.
    • Each Crystal has its own stat duration applied. Crystals whose stat durations have expired will not be included in the Artifact effect. The stat duration can be extended to 30 days from the date you extend it, through the [Duration Extend] feature.

    ※ When extending the duration of 1 expired Crystal, it will consume 1000 Artifact Points.

    ※ Crystals whose stat durations have not expired yet can also be extended. In this case, the Artifact Points consumed will be reduced in proportion to the length of the extended duration.

    ※ However, when a Crystal is acquired through levelling up your Artifact, its stat duration will be set to 30 days from that point in time.

    You can set the expiration of all Crystals to 30 days from the date you extend them all at once by using the [Bulk Extend] feature.

    (This last part is not from the patch notes.)

    If you’re confused, I’ll try to give a simple explanation for this system.

    • Complete the missions to get Artifact EXP. This includes the Normal/Boss missions which reset weekly, and are very easy since you just need to defeat monsters and bosses, and also the Special missions, which reward you for completing a variety of different content within the game.
    • As you get Artifact EXP, your Artifact Level will go up, unlocking more Crystals.
    • As your Artifact Level goes up, you will also get AP. This is used to level up your Crystals.
    • Each Crystal can have 3 different stats, and it will increase those stats by a certain level depending on what rank the Crystal is. (e.g. a Level 5 Crystal will increase the three stats on it by 5 levels.)
    • You can think of each Crystal as a trio core from the V Matrix, and your stat levels will be added up from all of your unlocked Crystals. (e.g. as shown above, my level 2, 1, and 1 Crystals all had the same stats and so I got a total of level 4 all stats, HP/MP, and attack/magic attack.)
    • Each Crystal has a 30 day duration. You can pay Artifact Points (from completing Normal/Boss missions) to extend them, up to 30 days. You do not lose the Crystal if you let the duration expire, you simply need to pay for the full 30 day extension again.
    • Therefore, if you were to go directly to the end of this system, you would have a total of 9 Crystals at level 5. You could max out a total of 12 stats (4 x pair of level 5 Crystals for 3 different stats) and half boost 3 other stats (1 x level 5 Crystal for 3 different stats).
    • You need a total of 9000 Artifact Points per month to keep all 9 Crystals active. If you look through the Normal/Boss missions, you can see its actually quite easy to get that much just by doing your weekly bosses.
