MapleStory‘s v.216 update, Astral Blessings, is on the horizon and the big headliner is the Celestial Festival. The once-a-year event celebrates the arrival of the solar eclipse and features several astrological activities players can take part in — such as Unending Night, the Princess Parade, and hot-air balloon rides that grant players EXP.
The update also introduces the Burning World Leap. It’s time for players to prepare to leave the Burning World and move to a new one — specifically any non-Reboot world. Of course, your characters need to meet the requirements to make the move.
When the update launches, Nexon will also host a new Fairy Bros’ Golden Giveaway. During the duration of the event, players who log in for at least an hour a day will earn special rewards. While it wasn’t explicitly stated, the image of the event window on the game’s site shows it running from August 26 to November 17.
