    Attention Maplers,

    As noted in the Q1 2023 Roadmap post, MapleStory will be retiring the current set of Cubes with our February update, currently scheduled for February 8, 2023, and releasing a new slate of Cubes, utilizing a new Cube Fragment system, and allowing some Cubes to have a chance for double rank-ups.

    The following existing cubes will be discontinued starting February 8, 2023:

    • Occult Cubes
    • Bonus Occult Cubes
    • Master Craftsman’s Cubes
    • Meister’s Cubes
    • Red Cubes
    • Black Cubes
    • Bonus Potential Cubes
    • White Cubes
    • Karma Meister’s Cubes
    • Karma Master Craftsman’s Cubes
    • Karma Bonus Occult Cubes

    The following new cubes will be released on February 8, 2023:

    • Mystical Cubes: Obtained in-game. Can be used on Rare to Epic items.
    • Bonus Mystical Cubes: Obtained in-game. Can be used on items up to Rare tier.
    • Hard Cubes: Obtained in-game. Can be used on Rare to Unique items. There is a chance of double rank up if used on Rare items.
    • Solid Cubes: Obtained in-game. Can be used on Rare to Legendary items. There is a chance of double rank up if used on Rare items.
    • Glowing Cubes: Can be purchased from Cash Shop. Can be used on Rare to Legendary items, with a chance for a double rank-up.
    • Bright Cubes: Can be purchased from Cash Shop. Can be used on Rare to Legendary items, with a chance for double rank-up and the option to choose before or after Potential lines.
    • Bonus Glowing Cubes: Can be purchased from Cash Shop. Can be used on Rare to Legendary items, with a chance for double rank-up.
    • Bonus Bright Cubes: Can be purchased from Cash Shop event sales. Can be used on Rare to Legendary items, with a chance for double rank-up and the option to choose before or after Potential lines.
    • Karma Solid Cubes: Obtained through in-game events. Can be used on Rare to Legendary untradeable items.
    • Karma Hard Cubes: Obtained through in-game events. Can be used on Rare to Unique untradeable items.
    • Karma Bonus Mysterious Glowing Cubes: Obtained in-game. Can be used on Rare untradeable items.

    There will also be adjustments to how the Cube Fragment system works. The new Cubes will give new Cube Fragments when used, and these Fragments can be exchanged for a variety of items listed below:

    • Advanced Potential Scroll: 5 Cube Fragments
    • Special Potential Scroll: 10 Cube Fragments
    • Bonus Potential Scroll 70%: 15 Cube Fragments
    • Perfect Potential Stamp: 30 Cube Fragments
    • Perfect Bonus Potential Stamp: 50 Cube Fragments
    • Special Bonus Potential Stamp: 100 Cube Fragments
    • Epic Potential Scroll 80%: 100 Cube Fragments

    Existing Cube Fragments – including Red Cube Fragments, Black Cube Fragments, Bonus Potential Cube Fragments, and White Cube Fragments – that are obtained prior to the February 8, 2023 update will be usable until March 22, 2023.

    During the February patch, any existing unused Cubes that remain in players’ inventory will be replaced with the corresponding new Cubes, on a 1:1 basis. In addition, during the December update, currently scheduled for December 14, 2022, the permanent duration Red Cubes and Black Cubes that can be purchased in Reboot world’s Cash Shop for mesos will be changed to have a 90-day duration. Reboot world players who purchased the permanent duration Red and Black Cubes from the Cash Shop prior to this duration change will have the option to request a meso refund via the Maple Admin NPC from December 14, 2022 (after maintenance) to February 8, 2023 (before maintenance). The requested refunds will be processed in two iterations - once during the January 5, 2023 maintenance, and once during the February 8, 2023 maintenance.

    Finally, we will be running a Miracle Time event during the December patch for all worlds during the following times:

    Aurora, Bera, Elysium, Scania, and Luna worlds:

    • UTC: December 17 at 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM, 10:00 PM - 11:00 PM
    • UTC: December 18 at 3:00 AM - 4:00 AM

    Reboot worlds:

    • UTC: December 18 at 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM, 10:00 PM - 11:00 PM
    • UTC: December 19 at 3:00 AM - 4:00 AM

    Reboot will be running Miracle Time without the registration again. There will be a 2-3 second delay between Cubing attempts during Miracle Time to help alleviate the lag. We are aware there could be potential issues, and should issues come up, we will be disabling the event and will run a pre-registration Miracle Time for Reboot at a later date.

    We'll share more details about these Cubes as we approach the February 2023 update, and we hope you enjoy the Miracle Time!
