Coming Soon: Skybound Expansion - Phase 1

MapleStory 2 might have only come out a few months ago, but we're not letting that get in the way of a massive update to turn Maple World upside down! Learn about the big pieces for the Skybound Expansion, learn about the celebration's special prizes, see the massive list of improvements that are coming soon, and more that comes when the Skybound Expansion arrives on Thursday, December 6th!

And More!

A new job, the new Epic story, holiday events, PvP Arenas, a massive giveaway, and that's not remotely all! If you've been keeping an eye on the Producer Blogs over the last month, you will have gotten sneak peaks and special looks at many of the improvements to the features in MapleStory 2 coming with the Skybound Expansion, including:

  • New Normal Chaos Raids, to help bridge the gap for Maplers trying to reach the pinnacle of the previously released Hard Chaos Raids
  • Hard Adventure Dungeons will be adjusted to help players gear up properly for the ultimate challenge of Chaos Raids! Keep an eye out for the Week 7 State of the Game Producer Blog for more details!
  • Three new and more intricate weapon UGCs for the Soul Binder, Runeblade and Assassin
  • Daily Missions will lead to huge rewards as you collect Weekly Mission Points, which can result in a collection of useful items, including 20 Chaos Onyx Crystals, 48 Metacells, 65 Blue Stars and 14,400 Onyx Crystals every week!
  • The Priest Heavenly Wings skill will no longer send the devoted healer hurtling towards nearby players and potentially into the fire that their ally was escaping
  • Guilds will start with 60 members, and expand up to 100 by Guild Lv. 13
  • A free Character Slot for all Maplers, and an additional purchasable Character Slot to boot!
  • And more!
