Now that MapleStory‘s big bad has been defeated, what’s next? How about a big party and a level cap increase?
That’s what’s in store for dedicated Maplers, when the Black Mage: New Beginnings story line kicks off on Jan. 23. The level cap goes up from 250 to 275 — the first such increase in five years — and a series of Maple Alliance celebration events will grant players special titles and gift boxes with unique rewards.
Missed out on the big battle? If you’re at least level 245, you can go to Tenebris to re-live it, while also enjoying daily quests and other quests that can set you up with a Genesis weapon after defeating the Black Mage. Learn more about all the goings-on at the MapleStory site.
And what would a big event be without an infographic? Nexon’s got one of those, chronicling 13 years of MapleStory. As it turns out, only 0.5% of all characters are above level 200, which makes people benefiting from the level cap increase a rather exclusive club. In fact, there are overall 43.4 million MapleStory accounts but just 47.8 million characters. Haven’t you people ever heard of alts?
