Two blades that divide the darkness!

new job is scheduled to be released soon in the test server.
This time the thief hero can shine.

Anyone who visits the Korean MapleStory website will see a new page. A background with three silhouetted characters.
It says it’s coming soon. Well I guess after all they will not be disappoint people with the very big patch planned in March.

A few days ago I published a poll about the new update and the three most voted at the moment are:

  • New maps for high-leveled players 23% (220 votes)
  • A new job 22% (211 votes)
  • A lot of disappointment 22% (209 votes)

Around 950 people participated in this poll and 22% thinks there will be a new job. Well, you are right.
There is not a lot of information yet about this new job, but what I can tell you is that this job will use a new type of weapon: dual blades.

This is a new scroll, it can only be used on blades.

  2. Takebacker says:

    What the fuck ever happened to high level content Nexon?

  3. Trer says:

    Wow 2nd one, NICE JOB SPADOW

  4. Jack says:

    Can’t wait! Keep up the good work Spadow ^.^

  5. Grindy says:

    Can’t wait for more information on this new class! I just saw some attacking animations on a different website, and I have to say they look awesome so far. I’ve never been into the thief class, but I’m definitly hopping on the bandwagon for this one!

  6. KooT says:

    Argh… I was guessing, there would be a job using two blades.
    But I was expecting it to be the pirate one, cause in every pirate movies, we see pirates using blades, but not in Maple !

    Then I really don’t know what will the Legendary pirate be ! I hope that nexon will surprise us once more.

    In my opinion, the Legendary bowman will be the less imaginative.

    • Bownissley says:

      i was so excited to see what the legendary bowman class was gonna be but then they are coming out with the thieves first .-_-. for the pirate class i really hope they use guns!

  7. SwordStaker says:

    Totally called the dual wield =P

    Takebacker :
    What the fuck ever happened to high level content Nexon?

    agreed =\

  8. Kris says:

    Any word on when this will be added to Tespia?

  9. Forte says:

    YES DAGGER CLASS NEXON. YES.

  10. Onyx says:

    Seems pretty cool. :P
    The gap between the classes is really small, though. Didn’t they say in that conference that they expect to release the new class by the END of the year? Well, this is no end.
    And I was expecting some new high-level area similar to ToT. xD

    • Alilatias says:

      I’m pretty sure they were talking about releasing Evan by the end of the year. I though that conference took place at the beginning of last December.

    • shibii says:

      i know GMS will have some soon, but cant say anything :P march/april we will get great contents on GMS ^^

  11. joey says:

    wonder whats the name and on a totally none related note for the life of me i cant find an evan mob quest video to save my life
    well cool job

  12. sgtgrif says:

    *Faints* … Dual Blades *sparkly eyes*

  13. Shadoo says:

    WHOA!! Looks so badass

  14. Roy Heath, Sr. says:

    looks stuff in wonderking LOL

  15. DarkRecon says:

    *Drools* THIS GONNA BE AWESOME!

    Hey Spadow, didn’t one of your old blog posts mention something about new swords during an extraction? Think it was the one when Plat. Karma Scissors came out. You think that might have to do with this new class?

  16. Zane says:

    you just made my day, babe

  17. Nate says:

    I’m guessing that the new class has something to do with nature?

  18. Imitazion says:

    All I know so far, is that the weapon is categorized as “Blade”. So lets get prepared for some fast slashing.

    • Spadow says:

      I saw them from a different source. It certainly does not look fake to me, but to verify this, I will need an insight of the next patch which might add skill data.

  19. Nessa says:

    Kyooo. I hope the guys name is Izan cause I made a character named Izan a LONNG time ago haha. XD and i think it would totally be epic with Izan.

    • Alilatias says:

      SouthPerry’s patch extraction lists some new hairstyles. One of them translates to “Ryan [color] hair”. Racie’s notes in a different thread at SouthPerry indicates that another hair style called “Aran [color] hair” was added too.

      I don’t know if this is just some coincidence or Ryan is the actual name of the new legend though.

  20. malapo says:

    did anyone notice that the leaves arent suppose to be there? there are no trees in kerning city. perhaps their skills have something to do with leaves?

    wow. that works also thats a nice name. :D linnkk? :o

    woot way to drop popularity on shadowers!!!
    now we have rare cheap daggers while our gear is like 500 times more >.>
    it would be better if second dagger is weaker while a mastery skill to raise the second dagger’s performance

  23. Geo says:

    Unfortunately, they will be unable to use shields. I wonder how they will balance it out.

  24. Hanabira.Kage says:

    If the skill animations are real…omg. Triple Stab and a Triple Assaulter? >.>

    and what’s with the metal orb thingy…lol

  25. blabla12345 says:

    making this job will be very expensive…
    it would be the same story it was for pirates when guns and knucklers came out their prices were too high and now they are too low who knows what will happen with this job…

  26. Boob says:

    Oh. So I see I bought steelies for nothing… Thats….Thats very nice.

    I think the blacked out legend in the middle is wearing a mask, If you look closely to the left side of his face where the tiny bit of light hits it you can make out an orange line above and beneath his eye, Also there’s a cut off where the eye is and the mask, making me think that he’s wearing a mask more :P But it’s all just speculation xD

  29. HI!@# says:

    its not a mask i think he has orange hair and red paint across his face

  30. HI!@# says:

    and u can tell his attaks has to do with wind look very good =D

  31. Nhan says:

    Good work, but I laugh if the jobs turn out as a fail…
    Makes me regret making a sindit :(
    Anyways, looking forward release of bowman’s legend job
    Hoping it would change my view of crossbow jobs :)

  32. TwilightMoon says:

    ever since I heard about the evan class I was hoping for the thief legend to be a dual wielder. Now just hoping we need 2 blades to equip (2 godly blades even more godly damage! =D). Though, it will be kind of expensive xD

    can’t wait for more info on this =D =D =D

    its won`t be 2 Diffrent Blades its one weapon just u see 2 blades like knuckle that u see 2 knuckles on each hands.

  35. DestinyThief says:

    Hey Spadow
    * i was wondering if the dual blades are 1 chr slot(and you see 2 blades on your charter) or 2 chr slots for 2 blades (maybe you can wear a lvl 10 and lvl 20 blade at the same time if you have too chr blade slots)
    * ow yea and i thought it was confirmmed that the 5 names were: Aran,Evan,Ian,Ochan,Utan?? thats what you said…

    afterthat i cant wait for more info about the new class

  38. NiNjAStRiKeG says:

    haha nvm, u can delete/remove my 2 previous posts, i read further into ur blog, thx for all the info spadow

  39. TwinBlader says:

    Hi,Im new here.I only want to ask one thing(Prediction required).
    1.I play MSEA but Evan isn’t out yet…When will it come out?
    2.How long will Ryan come out in MSEA?

  40. TwinBlader says:

    At second thoughts,I will figure it out myself unless anyone bothers helping me out.Thanks F2

  41. Borgus says:

    the two thieves standing around look lik a dit and a sin so it makes sense the twin blades is another adventurer thief job

  42. ShadowQuill says:

    Post on Basilmarket has de-bunked the “skills” shown.

    *
    They’re aran, sin and Evan skills all mixed up and recolored.
    The first few strikes are all different angles of the new L7 animation, the final red swing is the final hit from Aran’s overswing, the letters that appear are the Savage Blow symbols with the color reversed (if you notice, when he’s cutting through the skill, even the shining edges are cut, he probably used paint or something) and the last black swirl thing is Evan’s dragon rush, just recolored, the beginning to it is a WK’s lightning charge, turned black, the bomb at the end is also from a Neo Tokyo monster I believe.
    Oh, and the big leap attacks are all the same Overswing hit, just shrunk down. When he jumps into the air near the end, if you mess around, you see it moves EXACTLY the same as the second hit from overswing, it’s just smaller.
    *

    Also, for people saying “there’s a sin and a dit”, the one on the left is Dark Lord, and the one on the right is likely the Hero classes generic informative NPC, like Lilin with Aran.

  43. jaden says:

    its a dual blade and it is suuuuuuuuuper strong

  44. XCelestrial says:

    Lol,its not a hero class.Its an explorer class called Duel Blade,i find it boring.Its been released for some time in EMS(english,or North america Maplestory).He weilds a Katara and a dagger,with flashy moves and required a lot of funding and NX to move on.it has many job advancements.Its 5th job REQUIRES NX to move on.
