Arch Mage, RISE & MapleStory Spark

”This severely cold wind will put you asleep!”
What a treat! Another entry from the Secret Diary of Inkwell! It seems they have a liking for the word ‘rise’. Because now the Arch Mage will arise again!
It is obvious. The adventurer overhaul is coming very soon. Are you excited? Even though I returned to my blog I haven’t really played MapleStory. Just the casual log on and log off.
I’m waiting for the RED update to arrive and I’m really curious what they’re going to do about the Viper (Buccaneer) class because Viper was my main character class.
In other news, MapleStory in Japan will get a big update coming this summer!
I already have heard rumors of a MapleStory version getting the Spark update instead of Unlimited. It’s Japan! I have heard this update might hit in China as well.
So what is Spark? Not much is known actually. Only three things:
- A new character class
- High-leveled content
- User Interface (UI) changes
A new character class might mean Xenon or Demon Avenger because they’re not in Japan, however it could also mean an exclusive Sengoku class like Hayato and Kanna.
In the Hayato and Kanna story line, these two characters are referred as the Children of the Five Stars. In the tutorial of Hayato and Kanna you see an old Japanese temple with five gates.
The RED update in Korea will at least release one new character class, but due to data mining it seems there will be two: Zero and Ether. Their names in the quests are Alpha and Beta. They are the Children of God and created from the tears of the Goddess of Time, Rhinne.
High-leveled content is welcome. The Japanese version already has the maximum level cap of 250 and high-leveled content wouldn’t certainly hurt players who are past level 200. I hope the RED update in Korea will deliver some great fantastic high-leveled content.
Finally, the UI will receive refinements. I don’t know what exactly will be changed.
