    v.250 - Happy 19th Anniversary, MapleStory!

    The 19th anniversary of Global MapleStory is coming up on May 11th! It’s crazy to think that we’ve been on this adventure with you all for 19 years. To celebrate, we’ve prepared special events as a thank you for being part of this community so be on the lookout for some sneak peeks!

    v.250 - New Job: Forest Child Lynn

    The arrival of Forest Child Lynn is finally here! Lynn is a magician that uses a Memorial Staff weapon and the power of the forest to summon Spirit Guides to help her defeat her enemies. While she can do strong damage with her Spirit Guide skills, she also has a variety of healing skills and buffs to help her party, so she will be very helpful as a support. (Also since players have been asking, yes, she will be released on the day of the v.250 update!)

    We know many of you are curious about the conversion details from Beast Tamer to Lynn. Please wait until the patch notes have been released as it states all the information related to this topic.

    v.250 - Mayple Island

    Welcome to Mayple Island! Yes, we named it Mayple because it’s occurring in May! Mayple Island is a place that was created from the sparkling memories of Maplers. Meet those from your memories and receive abundant gifts by filling the Wish Orb that contains the dreams and hopes of people. The more you fill the Wish Orb, the better the rewards you’ll receive! Plus, there will be fun mini-games, photo booths, popularity contests, and other unique experiences throughout the event, including a museum exhibit where you can win OG Maple items. Don’t miss out and experience them all!

    v.251 - Angelic Buster Remaster

    Our queen of music, Angelic Buster, has blessed us with her return! In addition to her new look that is cuter and lovelier than ever, check out the newly changed skills. She’s also releasing her first mini album for you loyal fans, so we better see Angelic Buster as one of your top listened to artists in your 2024 Wrapped!

    v.251 - Legion Artifact

    After Monster Life ends, a new growth system called ‘Legion Artifact' will be included. Through various gameplay, players can naturally complete the missions and get time-limited stats that can be applied to all characters, introducing a new integrated character growth system.

    v.251 - Epic Dungeon: High Mountain

    Introducing MapleStory's first epic dungeon for characters level 260 and above! Dive into the story of the awakened sun god Mitra who has returned to the High Mountain after a long slumber. Defeat numerous enemies and get plenty of EXP and rewards.

    v.251 - Dreaming Lachelein

    We invite you to Lucid’s happy dream! Aren’t you curious about Lucid’s dreamy festival that isn’t a nightmare but something everyone can enjoy? Not only can you get LOADS of EXP, but there is a special reward shop, and content and mini-games for rapid leveling waiting for you. Explore all the exciting and special events that Lucid has prepared!

    v.251 - Midnight Party

    Welcome to the Midnight Party! It’s not a real party without goodies, so participate in the daily and weekly parties by defeating monsters to earn unique rewards, such as custom Lachelein outfits and backgrounds. After you’re done partying, you can earn your very own Lucidroid to accompany you on all your future endeavors.

    v.251 - Hyper Burning & Tera Blink

    Spiegelmann prepared a special map this time for Hyper Burning called Tera Blink! If you’re designated as a Hyper Burning character, you’ll be 200 with a blink of an eye in Spiegelmann’s ‘World Inside the Hat.’ Helpful rewards will be given every time you complete missions to help you progress even faster.
