Chaos Zakum defeated!

Updated with video!


Alternative link

I’m sure many of you have seen the Chaos Zakum video of yesterday. If not, click HERE to see.
But after numerous attempts, players were able to defeat Chaos Zakum!~

The first server to defeat Chaos Zakum is Yellonde+Kastia:

(Click on the images to enlarge)

The person who uploaded the screenshots said that Chaos Zakum dropped 3 helmets and some skill/mastery books.
This run contained 26 people.

Another server that defeated Chaos Zakum is the Stius server.

The Khaini server defeated Chaos Zakum as well, with 12 players.

In the last two screenshots I see an odd monster.

There are three versions of this underling of the Black Magician.
All three are level 200 and each have 1,8 billion HP!

However, you won’t be fighting them~
When you defeat Chaos Zakum (and Chaos Horntail) you will see 2 of these underlings appearing on your screen saying the following.

호오.. 용사의 후예들이여, 진정 나를 즐겁게 만드는구나.. 하지만 이 정도의 힘으로 우리들을 쓰러뜨릴 수는 없는 일… 하물며 그분에게 저항하는 것은 있을 수 없는 일이지…

이제 때가 되었도다. 곧 온 세상에 어둠의 장막이 드리워지게 될 것이다. 그리고, 위대한 자의 부활과 함께… 너희 모두는 어둠의 힘 앞에 무릎을 꿇게 되리라. 하하하하!

Oh… Descendants of heroes, you make me really pleased.. However, you cannot beat us with power like this… Moreover it is impossible to resist against him…

Now it’s time. Soon there will be darkness among the world. And, with the revival of a great person… You people will lose under the power of darkness. Hahahaha!

Hmm… Again threatening us with the revival of the Black Magician? Oh, please! If they continue teasing us like this, the Black Magician will be released in MapleStory 2 in 2011 or later.

    Wow, pretty cool. :)

  2. Person says:

    Me Likey

  3. Mesniaa says:

    That is pretty swag how 12 people beat Chaos Zakum, and neat message, stop teasing me with the revival of the Black Magician it’s like showing a horny guy boobs but he is unable to reach them.

  4. TableCAKE says:

    Goodwork Spadow (:

  5. WOA!!!
    Wow Im also kind of happy the black mage is not yet revived,
    the way things was looking the dragon rider looked like him…

    GREAT JOB for the team and yay level 200’s

  6. Luxeraph says:

    Maybe its just me but if the chaos bosses are the cynical to the normal orange mush I don’t think we really have any chance of betting the black mage as we are now, even if they let 100 people at a time, IMO after we get all the legends and the BM being near, NX might gives us something equivalent to a 5th job if not it would be really unfair to almost all of the jobs since the BM might hit near 30k.
    But I don’t think they would make the BM only for MS2, unless they intend to abandon MS after MS2 comes out, which IMO would be a big waste of money.

    • thechazz says:

      how u know DM wil hit 30k … there is nothing confiremed about him as a monster … so how do i come up with him dealing 30k dmg

      • Luxeraph says:

        I never said he will hit 30k and I’m just saying that since I have seen PB hitting over 20k and since chaos HT might be as strong as PB just imagine how the BM who made such a powerful mosnter will hit.
        Unless we never battle him directly.

        • thechazz says:

          woah pb 20k .. never knew he was that strong .. but i think we have to fight BM in stages ….. or make it like a sort of PQ that u gotta kill some of his underlings to make the BM weaker and then u can fight him and he is … wel weaker OR yo can choose to rush in right away and fight him just as hard as a PB

  7. TRAGyukNo says:

    now we only hav to wait for horntail to be defeated ;D

  8. NEXON says:

    黑暗結界解除。

  9. Ghost says:

    I sense the new high level content will include a high leveled boss related to the black magician (or even the Black Magician himself). I bet it’s gonna be harder than PB (or even a theoretical CPB)

  10. shibii says:

    lol @ “Hmm… Again threatening us with the revival of the Black Magician? Oh, please! If they continue teasing us like this, the Black Magician will be released in MapleStory 2 in 2011 or later.”

    seriously i was thinking the same thing as i was ready the translation just before you say that xD

  11. Hanabira.Kage says:

    1.8 BILLION HP?! Hell, if the Black Magician’s underlings have THAT much HP, I’ll hate to see how much HP Blackie himself will have.

    Strange that they even put in a level and HP count for those things if they’re not meant to be fought. Perhaps Nexon decided on those values first so that they won’t have to later? Since those things appear here anyway…

  12. jobshen says:

    it’s so pretty!But i wanna to tell the chaos BOSSes is tell us the black magician is coming to us truthly. Imaging,if the black magician let his squire to atc an justice NPC and allow the new job to born,so this is so interesting!

  13. oooopoooo says:

    i guessed it right!
    i knew those chaos bosses were connected to the black mage.
    how else would those bosses get that much more powerful?

  14. ARCHER says:

    there better not be a 3d maplestory 2….

  15. rauleli says:

    What about chaos Horntal?

  16. Chuey says:

    There’s the mystery boss monster I posted about last time (and lost my head for it). I thought you’d fight it though, so I’m a little disappointed yet I find this appearance-thing pretty cool also…

  17. Nhan says:

    $10 that they will raise the level cap
    I’ll laugh if the black magician was a snail in disguise

    • Alilatias says:

      I’m going to laugh hard if the first phase of the fight turns out to be a snail that tries to OHKO everyone by ramming into them. Going to have to jump all over the place to avoid it.

  18. Sal says:

    Hmmm, a few questions:

    Are Chaos Zakum’s summons the same as normal Zakum’s?

    In the video in the last post, there seemed to be quite the difference between the damage that different characters were taking, ranging from 1.2k to 5.4 (or higher). How exactly is such a wide range possible?

    Was this the high level content patch that was slated to be released in March?

    • Ghost says:

      Yea but i think the stats has been increased too

      Unstable damage?

      Yes, but it seems like Nexon has moved their focus to the new mechanic job, seeing that the Chaos Bosses are the only hint of the new content and we’ve literary seen Nexon working on the new job.

  19. KanesWrath says:

    the black mage is a pile of shit… couldnt they create something more epic…

  20. One says:

    If Nexon would do something really epic, it would be elf-based world in maplestory. elite area, lvl 150-190 monsters, chance to make yourself an elf via quests those reguire you to prove your strenght.
    or something?

  21. SwordStaker says:

    So wait MapleStory 2 ISN’T a brand new game? It’s just a huge ass update?

    • Spadow says:

      I don’t know, but I don’t think it’s a really big update.

      • SlayerGhost says:

        Kinda hard to see them making an entirely new game altogether while continuing support for the original.

        I bet it will be a massive update, and then they’ll kinda just tweak the name of it, to, say, MapleStory: Black Mage Chronichles (Just a quickly, on the spot thought up name, no need to troll over it).

        • Spadow says:

          There is a different development team for MS2 and it will be a sequel to MapleStory.

          • SlayerGhost says:

            Oh. It’ll be interesting to see how they come up with that then… Cuz at this rate, unless MapleStory 2 comes out when we’re all graduated from college, we’ll have MapleStory 2 before we even know how the first one ends. And as Nexon gets slower and slower with every update, the situation begins to look more and more grim…

          • SwordStaker says:

            MS2 better take a long ass time to come out then. I would not ditch my hard earned characters for a new game -.-

    • Ghost says:

      I can’t imagine MapleStory actusally ending, and it would be hard of Nexon to continue MapleStory if there was a better version of it. Either MS2 is a new segment of the game that is personally responible for their content (meaning they don’t go through the orignial developers) or it is the orignial version of the game but with different battle tactics (i.e. first-person battle or something similar to KH)

  22. KanesWrath says:

    i wouldnt be surprised if the black mage will end up been Super weak compared to pink bean and once it’s dead it will say “i shall be back”

  23. Zero says:

    maybe they will raise the level cap of the Cygnus Knight to 200 and the other jobs to 300 (O_O)

    • Ghost says:

      Not that far, at most they would raise the levels up to 250 and the CK to 180. Plus the 5th job advancement would be needed.

  25. SlayerGhost says:

    Zero :maybe they will raise the level cap of the Cygnus Knight to 200 and the other jobs to 300 (O_O)

    Hell to the no. There are aren’t even any 150+ training areas as it is, so getting to lvl 300 would be damn near impossible. And with Cygnus Knight’s ability to lvl ridiculously fast, with all of their Adventurer counterparts’ godly skills, the game will become broken and straight unfun to play. People will start to only make Cygnus Knights and REALLY leave Adventurers in the dust.

  26. Daikokuro says:

    Uh spadow got a few questions if you dont mind answering :

    A) Are the Blades from lv.10 – lv.40 Dual Bladers available for purchase through NPC’s?

    B) Can you maker the Blades from lv.50 onwards?

    C) For which skills did you have to buy Mastery Books from cash shop which were of 100% success rate?

    D) To summon chaos Zakum do you have to use the same sacrifice (Eye of Fire).

    E) Does both the Chaos Versions drop Maple Warrior 30 like the regular horntail does?

    Thanks in Advance for answering!

    • Spadow says:

      A) Yes
      B) Yes
      C) Slash Storm 20, Tornado Spin 20, Mirror Imaging 30, Flying Assaulter 20, Sudden Raid 30, Thorns Effect 30
      D) Yes
      E) I don’t know

      ^^;

  27. IastAran says:

    Am i the only one who thinks that if they make maplestory a whole new game (MS2) that thats like a kick to the nuts to all the ppl who got to lvl 200 and still want to fight the Black Mage?

  28. Takebacker says:

    SwordStaker :
    MS2 better take a long ass time to come out then. I would not ditch my hard earned characters for a new game -.-

    Nexon wouldn’t want you to do that either, lmao.

    meh I don’t know what to think of this “Ms2” or something. Becuase when it comes out NEXON might ditch “Ms1” all together. It’ll just be screwed.

  30. Mesniaa says:

    I doubt they will get rid of Maple Story when MS2 comes out, it’s a different team doing it, and most likely will be a different art style and type of game play, I could see it being before the events of Maple Story like leading up to what we got, back story on the Black Magician, maybe show us things like Masteria and what it was before it disappeared.

    It would be neat to see everything back in time like how we can go back with the time machine to Ellin Forest.
    I’m not saying any of this is happening just I would find it very interesting.

    • SlayerGhost says:

      Spadow said it’s a sequel. If it were showing the events before the first MS then it’d be called a prequel.

  31. LoveWinter says:

    I think that we will have the black magician in about 2 years time. See, every job takes few months to create and go to other servers, then new patches comes out and updates are available. We have 2 remaining. if you calculate and estimate, it should take 2 years or less, unless NEXON wants to delay it. In the meantime, let’s concentrate on our own characters and wait patiently, being anxious to get the new jobs won’t get NEXON to do it faster.

    • SlayerGhost says:

      We actually have 3 remaining. Aran and Evan are the only known of legends as of right now.

      • Hanabira.Kage says:

        Evan isn’t actually a Legend. Evan is merely a successor to the actual Legend.

        Mir is from a legendary bloodline though; that of the Onyx Dragon.

        • Ghost says:

          Do you think they would make a job for Freed the legend after already having Evan?

        • Secun says:

          Then why are Aran and Evan in the same character creation category and how could we play as Freed if he’s long dead?

      • thechazz says:

        just saying this : spadow once sayd that nexon sayd : we have 2 more jobs to release .. 1 being a hero and 1 being related to the BM … so only 2 more new jobs and since engineer wil be out soon ( i think it wil be related to the BM) we can only expect 1 more :)

        • Ghost says:

          It is possible that they’ve chosen to make more, learning from the March Patch hype, Nexon’s hints are usually skewed.

          • thechazz says:

            wat ya mean ??
            i cant remember annything during the march patch (no im serious stop laughing) can u plz refresh my memory

          • Ghost says:

            In december, Nexon anounced a high-leveled area for the March, March came and no new high-level content came. And even now the new content hasn’t released.
            Same goes for Nexon America and Masteria (although it is partically the players fault for assuming that the NLC event quests are actually a hint for more content)

  32. MorbidMagus says:

    SlayerGhost :
    Spadow said it’s a sequel. If it were showing the events before the first MS then it’d be called a prequel.

    We have no actual confirmation if its a Sequel or a Prequel.

    • Spadow says:

      What? The word sequel was written in several news articles.

      • Ghost says:

        There’s always the chance they will change their minds, they could of just said it as a sequel so people wouldn’t imagine a MapleStory 0

        • SlayerGhost says:

          Yeah. And if we’re basing this off of the same interview where Nexon promised a major patch in March it could literally be anything. Hell, MapleStory 2 could just be an update to the original game. <_<

          • thechazz says:

            uhm …. wel from what i know nexon also publiced mabinogi , and more versions of it …. mabinogi heroes and vindictus coming soon.
            so if once they anounce that there wil be a MS 2 i think it wil be coming , only in like 2012 …. wel i hope it wil NEVER COME !!!!!! unles it wil be sooooo much fun then its good :)

          • SlayerGhost says:

            Mabinogi Heroes = Vindictus.

  33. IastAran says:

    if they do make it a separate game a lot of people would prob quit maple

    • SwordStaker says:

      Thats the wrong part. If its a whole new game NO ONE is going to want to start over for something that may be remotely the same.

      • Ghost says:

        But a lot of people would eventually quit the original maplestory if they stop updating it.

        • SlayerGhost says:

          I doubt it’d be just like the current MapleStory…

          It could be more 3D based, but still 2D… Think LittleBIGPlanet, but with MS flair.

          Not to mention the company running it might not be Nexon, which is always a plus…

          • Spadow says:

            That doesn’t make sense at all.
            It’s obvious that Wizet is developing MS2 and Nexon being the publisher.

            The most recent event where MapleStory 2 has been mentioned was at the Evan press conference for MapleStory and hosted by Nexon.

          • thechazz says:

            woah okay forget all my comments about MS 2 .. i tought u were joking , okay man i belive you now =D
            but i think MS2 wil be a different story . like no more BM i think you then play AS the followers as the BM and the heros and legends wil be seen as the enemy.
            shinshoo (that bird from ereve) wil be like a zakum fight.
            all the job instructors + their cygnus knight instructors fight wil be a horntail , and aran + evan + (maybe new job else nothing) wil be a PB fight .. then u gotta fight 2 enemys at time or more :)

          • SlayerGhost says:

            So you’re telling me MS2 will be the exact same game as the first MS? Excuse me if I find that a bit hard to beleive.

          • Spadow says:

            No, I never said that.

            Let’s just stop about the discussion of MapleStory 2. It will come not anytime soon.

          • TableCAKE says:

            LOLOLOLOL.

            MS2= The normal game, with the same accounts.
            But haves Major updates like.
            There will be anorther FM,5th job,Maplestory Menu will change.

            All stuff like that..
            Cause when they are making a new maplestory almost everyone will quit The normal MS or they will all play Ms2 so that will be a big fail.

            RoflRofl
            Bad English I KNOOW.

          • SwordStaker says:

            Uhm What? It’ll be no one will play MS2 especially the high levels because who the hell would want to start over.

          • SlayerGhost says:

            People start over all the time. I myself have half a dozen different characters…

    What doesn’t makes sense is “3D based, but still 2D”

  36. PsychoThomiGMS says:

    It would be very awesome if they could make a new job named ‘Dark ‘ ,and they would get to be some kind of black magician’s apprentices :D.And they could hurt other maplers,and to start in a whole new world,so wehn they reach lvl 100 they could challenge normal maplers to a pvp :D.

    • Ghost says:

      Do you know how easily “attacking” other players can be abused?

      People will go: ‘Forget Ksing you, we’re gonna kill you!’

  37. PsychoThomiGMS says:

    ‘Dark ..something..’*

  38. SwordStaker says:

    SlayerGhost :
    People start over all the time. I myself have half a dozen different characters…

    True.People would honestly only quit if they stop updating normal ms I guess. And who knows it might be such a fail in Korea it’s never released here. That is HIGHLY doubtful.But it may never reach outside of Korea.We never know till its here.(If it isn’t cancled)

    • SwordStaker says:

      Forgot to add.It could be like Mabinogi and Mabinogi Heroes(Vindictus) Two games under the same name(almost) and yet Mabinogi still updates and Mabinogi heroes is a totally different story.

      • SlayerGhost says:

        Mabinogi and Mabinogi heroes are totally different games, though. Mabinogi is just straight boring, but I’m actually excited for Mabinogi Heroes.

        • SwordStaker says:

          Ah sorry. Maybe it’ll be a Pokemon like thing. Whole new storyline (Excluding Gold and Silver) introducing new gameplay.

  39. Ghost says:

    SlayerGhost :People start over all the time. I myself have half a dozen different characters…

    SAme here but at least can go back to them

    Ghost :In december, Nexon anounced a high-leveled area for the March, March came and no new high-level content came. And even now the new content hasn’t released.Same goes for Nexon America and Masteria (although it is partically the players fault for assuming that the NLC event quests are actually a hint for more content)

    oooh so that u meant with march patch xD
    but what u mean with masteria ?
    because i see that in MSEA and KMS they have a better masteria ( further than theme park if im not mistaking , wich i could)
    and wha does masteria has to do with NLC that u mention ??

    • Ghost says:

      The probelm with Masteria is that Nexon America has been dropping hints with event quests (during Thanksgiving and anniversity months) without releasing any new real content. Masteria is dead and gone. The head staff employee for Masteria has quit or got fired. And the last real patch we got in Masteria was CWKpq

      Also GMS has the best (somewhat) content in Masteria because it origin of all the content there. Also its the only version of MapleStory that has all the areas.
      Plus, there are no theme parks at Masteria (yet, Cody’s theme park has been mentioned but I dobut they will ever get to it). You must be getting it confused with ‘Malaysia’ which has a theme park. But not even KMS has that and GMS has all the theme park that MSEA has.

    What are you talking about? We’re the only version with Masteria

    • Ghost says:

      Incorrect.
      http://strategywiki.org/wiki/MapleStory/Towns#Masteria
      The only exclusive area in Masteria is the new halloween content we got last year, and that has rather small

    • thechazz says:

      wo wait wait wait !!!
      masteria is with the gallopera monsters and stuff right ??
      or am i confused with nlc …. and to ghost : kms and msea dont have NLC … i think only GMS , because we are the only ones with windraiders and bigfoor boss

      • Ghost says:

        NLC is in Masteria
        KMS does not have NLC
        MSEA has NLC
        Windraiders and bigfoot are in CWK (CWK is in Masteria)

        • thechazz says:

          oooh wait i get it now … so masteria is like every town / associated with a town or close to that isnt on the world map and ISNT an event map ?
          and malaysia is just a new place like vic. or ereve ?

          • Secun says:

            ..No. You don’t get it at all.
            Masteria is a seperate continent that can be reached by taking the Kerning City Subway.
            Ghost even linked the StrategyWiki page.. You really should learn to read.

          • thechazz says:

            woah dude easy ….
            i only looked at the maps and wich server has it and wich doesnt.
            so masteria is like NLC …
            kay thanks =D

      • Ghost says:

        Gallopera is in Malaysia

  42. thechazz says:

    maybe with revival OF A GREAT PERSON they mean a new job related to BM … like its a really good fighter for the black mage .. thats why A GREAT PERSON

    • Secun says:

      “a great person” means the Black Magician himself, not a new job.

      • thechazz says:

        wel it hasnt been confirmed that BM comes soon .. and they ARE developing a new job , so it would make mroe sense that the new job would be THE GREAT PERSON else they would say : OUR MASTER or THE BRINGER OF DESTRUCTION, because a great person doesnt sound of the BM caliber , bceause a great person sounds to weak for the BM

        • Ghost says:

          It’s probably a rough translation, I wouldn’t be surprised if they change the title in GMS. and besides the mechanic job, we’ve have yet to hear a new job in development

          • thechazz says:

            yeah your right about that but wouldnt it be fun if the engineer would be related to the BM and be one of his elite fighters , or brainwashed and taken from the past / future to the present =D

          • Ghost says:

            Anything’s possible, especially since we haven’t heard anything about KMS for over a week…

          • Secun says:

            I’m inferring that “a great person” means the Black Magician because I don’t recall anyone else who’s having attempt at being revived..

          • thechazz says:

            well maybe they are ready to call forth their great ally , the engineer job …
            would be cool if they would mean that so because their technologie has been lost but the black mage and his members found the lost technologie to make an army of engineer job ppl to fight for the BM =D

    thechazz :wel it hasnt been confirmed that BM comes soon .. and they ARE developing a new job , so it would make mroe sense that the new job would be THE GREAT PERSON else they would say : OUR MASTER or THE BRINGER OF DESTRUCTION, because a great person doesnt sound of the BM caliber , bceause a great person sounds to weak for the BM

    I don’t see the point in that.
    Why would a Black magician deciple after beating Chaos zakum tell Maplers theres a new job? o_O Just think about it…. Why would an enemy show up to tell the good people theres another job coming who is going to fight againts the black mage.
    It doesn’t make sence. o-o
    I’m almost 100% sure they are talking about the Black Magician.

      nononono , what i meant was they will tell one of their elites wil wake up or so to HELP the black mage and fight AGAINST the heroes

    SlayerGhost :People start over all the time. I myself have half a dozen different characters…

    Yeah, but what level were the characters? It has taken months and months and for some people, even YEARS to get to their character’s equips, levels, and status. A level 30 can be restarted and remade in less than a day. With 150+ it takes time and money to replace.

    Hmm…. that underling looks familiar…

    Oh! I know! It looks like the exact same image from one of the battle mage’s skills. You posted the video yourself Spadow.

    • thechazz says:

      actual it doesnt , because the battle mage skill has a other face , has a scythe and other cape and it has hands.
      the underling it more like a ghost-ish while revive is more like a grim reaper

    • Spadow says:

      I compared the two images and they’re not exactly the same.

    hmmmm if thats what they r saying is resistance the first round?

  48. LOLOLZ says:

    imagine nexon decides to make an opposing job to the adventurers, cygnus knights and the heroes that serve under the BM AND they include a PVP, wouldnt that be funny…to bad this is a 2D game and probably could not incorporate PVP cause of all the unbalanced jobs in the game. But it’d still be pretty awesome if maplestory was a 3D game with the same storyline don’t you think?

    Maplestory 2? What is this Spadow? Is there a new game for Maplestory? :O
