Dual Blader and Cannon Shooter, ready for takeoff!

This will be our moment!

That feeling~

Seems like some people judged too fast about the “special treatment” for Dual Blader and the Cannon Shooter character class.
The RED update was actually divided in three updates, but it seems we’re getting a fourth update which will probably include this revamp.
As of right now, we don’t have Boss Arena (Boss PvP). I’m curious what Nexon has in store this time.

I have sympathy for the Flame Wizard and Night Walker users. No revamp for you yet.

Captain! Battleship is ready for take off!

”Bounce! Bounce! Bouncing bombs!”

A new entry has been published in the super secret diary of Inkwell. This time it is showing one of the last classes that will receive an overhaul: Captain (also known as Corsair in GMS and perhaps other versions).
The name of the file suggests that the name of this skill is called Cruiser Artillery. Bouncing bombs. Interesting. If the image is not animated for you, you can click here to see it.

A new term in the test server will start very soon so everyone will start with a clean slate. We are very close to the first update of RED.
I want to know what will happen to Viper (Buccaneer). The first update of RED that will include the newly revamped Adventurers is scheduled for July 4th, 2013.

The broken carpal bone in my right hand is healing. I went to the hospital for check-up and received a new orthopedic cast.
I’m stuck with it for six weeks which is a bummer of course because summer is just around the corner.

Night Lord is BACK!

”The outlaw of the night who quietly aims at your heart! Night Lord!”

The next teaser is out and it’s the turn of the Night Lord. A revamp for the adventurer thieves can be expected soon.
When I saved the image to my desktop it says the name of the file is Showdown Challenge.

Meanwhile, the Bowman revamp is already out in the test server and I saw some really great new skils for the Bowmaster and the Marksman.
Below you can check out the videos pf the changes made to each class.

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!

Dark Knight, RISE

”The Dark Knight who signs a contract with death will have its true nature revealed!”

This page was taken from the Secret Diary of Inkwell. It gives players a preview of what is coming soon to MapleStory.
I hope by now you know that all adventurers will be completely overhauled in the RED update. The scroll in the image above says at the top: Reincarnation.

Yesterday the MapleStory client was updated to version 1.2.194 adding several new content. In this update it brought skill refinements and balancing to the Wild Hunter, Aran, Evan, Xenon, Kaiser, Angelic Buster, Demon Avenger, Phantom, Mercedes and finally the Wind Breaker. It added a new theme dungeon for players above Lv. 30 called the Fairy Academy of Elinel.

A new party quest Altar of Masteria has been implemented. This party quest can be accessed through Crimsonwood Castle in Masteria via the Mirror of Dimension. It is the Korean version of the GMS Crimsonwood Keep party quest but I’d say.. less exciting. Hopefully I can bring a video of this party quest to you soon.
New bosses as souls are available: Ephinia and Arkarium. I’m on my quest to get Cygnus though! A few existing theme dungeons and party quests have been changed to more convenience.

I want to bring this post to your attention. I’ve said that I discovered new job ids in the quest data in a new test server patch.
Three weeks ago a Korean user on insoya found out about a new warrior class whose name was 에테르 (Ether). He said he got it from the MapleStory executable which means an unpacked client.
I didn’t believe it when I first saw it, even though he posted images as proof of his discovery. But now I don’t think he is lying.
When I go back to that post of three weeks ago and view his images, I see strings of information related to the world merge area. This area can be accessed by all characters from all the worlds in the game. We learned about the world merge area on May 19. This means the user could not know about it three weeks ago.
Besides that, there are also strings with the name Zero in it such as: 제로 착용 가능 (Equipable as Zero).

Time will tell, my friends.
