    MapleStory 2 is only just finishing its second month of service, but we've been making so many changes to the core systems that we need a special post just to cover them all. We've made all of the below changes in response to your valued feedback and harsh-but-fair criticism, and we hope that the below changes make MapleStory 2 the best game it can be.

    Table of Contents

    Hard Adventure Dungeons


    Hard Adventure Dungeons have seen some of the biggest changes, as we work to smooth out the difficulty for players gearing up for Chaos Raids (more on them in a bit).

    Prior to the Skybound Expansion, all of MapleStory 2's Hard Adventure Dungeons were intended to be roughly the same difficulty, and had identical reward structures to match. The unfortunate result of this was that players seeking to simply hit the Gear Score requirements for Chaos Raids would repeatedly run "The Fire Dragon" dungeon, as it was the quickest and simplest dungeon to complete, causing progression to feel more and more repetitive.

    With the Skybound Expansion, we are adjusting the Hard Adventure Dungeons to fit into three tiers of difficulty. As part of that, The Fire Dragon and Labyrinthine Halls final bosses will be weakened, reducing their health by 10% and attack by 25%. In addition, we are adjusting the formerly-identical Gear Score requirements for the dungeons to the below:

    Dungeon Name Entry Gear Score
    Previously Now
    The Fire Dragon 2100 1800
    Labyrinthine Halls
    Temple of Immortals 2100 2100
    Lubelisk
    BeyondLink Tris 2100 2800
    Rune Temple

    Note: It was deemed that the difficulty and complexity of the BeyondLink Tris and Rune Temple dungeons were already above that of the other dungeons, and would not need to be made more difficult.

    Additionally, the rewards for those dungeons are being adjusted. Previously, you could get Epic-quality gear for any item slot from any of the dungeons, which only encouraged repeatedly completing the easiest and fastest one. Instead, each Tier of dungeon will reward from a more limited selection of items, to make finding just the right sword or breastplate easier, as well as a few other additions...

    Dungeon Name Hard Adventure Dungeon Rewards
    Previously Now
    The Fire Dragon • 1 from Headgear, Top, Bottoms, Gloves or Shoes and 1 dungeon-specific weapon • 1 from Headgear, Gloves or Shoes
    • 50x Toad's Toolkit Fragment
    Labyrinthine Halls
    Temple of Immortals • All Weapons - players choose among Mupagoth, Rune, MSL weapons
    • 50x Toad's Toolkit Fragment
    Lubelisk
    BeyondLink Tris • 1 from Top or Bottoms
    • Epic Bonus Re-Roller Box Fragment (Weapon)
    • Epic Bonus Re-Roller Box Fragment (Armor)
    • 50x Toad's Toolkit Fragment
    Rune Temple

    [​IMG]

    Epic Bonus Re-Rollers allow you to re-roll the values of the bonus stats on the noted type of gear, so that if you find an item with the bonus stats you need, but too low to be useful, you can take another roll and keep whichever numbers suit you best. It takes 6 runs of BeyondLink Tris or Rune Temple to get enough fragments for an Epic Armor Bonus Value Re-roller, and 30 runs for an Epic Weapon Bonus Value Re-roller.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, 100 Toad's Toolkit Fragments can be used to create one Toad's Toolkit, an Enchantment Wildcard! These toolkits can be used in place of a copy of the item you're enchanting, making it much easier to get the items you need to upgrade your best gear past +10!

    We hope these changes will help you get your gear in top shape and make yourselves ready for the challenge of Chaos Raids, and speaking of those...

    Normal and Hard Chaos Raids


    Chaos Raids are the most challenging content in MapleStory 2, and we didn't want that to change. We want your first time taking down Devorak, Captain Moch and Papulatus to make you shout for joy, to be something that truly must be earned...

    ...but we also recognize that the jump in difficulty from Hard Adventure Dungeons to Chaos Raids was too much, and there needed to be a stepping stone to get you to a place where you feel like you have a fighting chance on your first go. The natural solution was to create that stepping stone, renaming the current set as Hard Chaos Raids and creating the new Normal Chaos Raids!

    [​IMG]

    A Normal Chaos Raid is a blend of the accessibility of Hard Adventure Dungeons and the challenge of Chaos Raids:

    • Gear Score requirements are the same between Normal and Hard mode.
    • A maximum party of 6 players can enter a Normal Chaos Raid
    • Normal Chaos Raid Bosses have considerably less health and do less damage with their attacks, but you still must defeat the boss in under 15 minutes and safe revivals are still limited
    • Normal and Hard Chaos Raids share daily and weekly raid limits
    • Ludibrium Clock Tower is only available in Hard Difficulty, no easy mode for the clock master!
    • The rewards are as follows. Playing only Normal Chaos Raids can eventually get the same quality of equipment as Hard Chaos Raids, but will take considerably longer:
    Map Name and Difficulty Armor Drops Accessory Drops Etc.
    Normal Shadow Altar Devorak's Treasure Fragment Selection Box, with your choice of:
    • 5x Extreme Headgear/Gloves/Shoes Selection Box Fragments
    • 5x Rage Headgear/Gloves/Shoes Selection Box Fragments
    • 5x Panic Headgear/Gloves/Shoes Selection Box Fragments One of the following, dropped randomly:
    • 4x Absolute Earrings Fragments
    • 4x Absolute Pendant Fragments
    • 4x Absolute Ring Fragments
    • 4x Absolute Cape Fragments
    • 4x Absolute Belt Fragments
    • 1x Gemstone and Gem Dust Box
    • 1x Special Red Potion
    Hard Shadow Altar Devorak's Treasure Selection Box, with your choice of:
    • Extreme Headgear/Gloves/Shoes Random Box
    • Rage Headgear/Gloves/Shoes Random Box
    • Panic Headgear/Gloves/Shoes Random Box
    • 1x Gemstone and Gem Dust Box
    • A chance to obtain a Devorak Combat Pet

    • 5x Extreme Tops/Bottoms Selection Box Fragments
    • 5x Rage Tops/Bottoms Selection Box Fragments
    • 5x Panic Tops/Bottoms Selection Box Fragments
    • 1x Gemstone and Gem Dust Box
    • 1x Special Red Potion
    Hard Moonlight Fortress Moc's Treasure Selection Box, with your choice of:
    • Extreme Tops/Bottoms Random Box
    • Rage Tops/Bottoms Random Box
    • Panic Tops/Bottoms Random Box
    • 1x Gemstone and Gem Dust Box
    • A chance to obtain a Captain Moc Combat Pet
    Hard Ludibrium Clock Tower Papulatus's Treasure Selection Box, with your choice of:
    • Extreme Weapon Random Box
    • Rage Weapon Random Box
    • Panic Weapon Random Box
    • 1x Gemstone and Gem Dust Box
    • A chance to obtain a Papulatus Combat Pet

    Daily Missions


    We're also improving Daily Missions, so that you can get more consistent rewards without needing to grind through all the missions every day. With the Skybound Expansion, you will instead gain Weekly Mission Points with every Daily Mission you complete, with the points carrying over day after day.

    [​IMG]

    With every 300 Mission Points you earn each week, you'll earn a Gold Mission Complete Box, containing a set array of items; no more needing to pray to the dice for favor. Do your daily missions and you'll be able to pick up the following prizes!

    • 300 Mission Points: Gold Mission Complete Box (Tier 1), containing 2,400 Onyx Crystals, 10 Blue Stars, 8 Metacell and 4 Chaos Onyx Crystals
    • 600 Mission Points: Gold Mission Complete Box (Tier 2), containing 4,800 Onyx Crystals, 20 Blue Stars, 16 Metacell and 6 Chaos Onyx Crystals
    • 900 Mission Points: Gold Mission Complete Box (Tier 3), containing 7,200 Onyx Crystals, 30 Blue Stars, 24 Metacell and 10 Chaos Onyx Crystals

    That's not all, of course. While the changes to Hard Adventure Dungeons, the addition of Normal Chaos Raids and more reliable Daily Missions are the big headliners, we also have dozens of other changes. Check out the full patch notes below!

      • Valor Tokens will be given as rewards that can be used in the Arena Shop.
    • How to participate:
      • Adventurers Lv. 50 and above can queue for a match in the Maple Arena menu. The match-making system gathers all queued adventurers in 4-minute intervals and pairings will be determined by your Match-making Rating.
      • If you are matched and decline to enter, a penalty will be applied and you will be unable to queue for 30 minutes.

    • Ladder Score:
      • After a Maple Arena match, your Ladder Score (scores players can view) increase or decrease based on your performance. Ladder Score can't go below 1,000.
