MapleStory: RED due for summer 2013

The official livestream for MapleStory’s 1st festival has just ended. I would like to thank everyone who went to see my livestream on Twitch.TV.
I hope you enjoyed the festival even though you probably couldn’t understand much. A sweet event that happened: a girl came on stage and explained how she met her boyfriend on MapleStory. Next thing you know, you see her boyfriend proposing for marriage. Isn’t that just brave?

After many words have been exchanged, the update preview has finally been shown to everyone in the audience. As you might notice, the summer update for 2013 will be called RED. It stands for Revolution, Evolution and Delight.

What does the RED update mean for MapleStory? Remember that this is just an update preview. More information will be revealed in June.

Coming soon!

Hey everyone. MapleStory’s first festival is just around the corner and I know what is coming soon.
In the latest update of Tespia, they’ve added new jobIDs to a lot of quests in which a ”Shadow Temple” has been mentioned.

The new jobIDs are:


This means it is an entirely new Warrior job. There will also be new areas.
I’m sorry for not posting a lot of updates, but I’m waiting for the festival to begin.

Other than MapleStory I have been playing Dungeon Striker which entered open beta a few days ago.
It is a new game from the creators of Dragon Nest. I’ve been playing in the closed beta and I anticipated for the open beta release.
If you have a hangame account you can download this game at Join the 엘리아 server because that’s where I am playing in.

MapleStory’s 1st Festival

MapleStory's 1st Festival

On the 19th of May, Nexon will hold a special party in Korea at COEX.
Users are invited to join this party.

There will be events where invited users can participate in, an exhibition about the past ten years of MapleStory, the celebration of the 10th anniversary of MapleStory, special performances by SISTAR and Girl’s Day and information about the anticipated 2013 Summer Update will be revealed.

Now, I know Nexon likes to hype. I have to wait and see if this ”historical” update really is historical.

The adventure has come to an end…

This was a really hard decision for me. I have decided to pull the plug on my blog.
Most of you readers will probably be disappointed in me because of this, but I have to do what is best for me.

Lately, my life is interfering with this lovely hobby, which is blogging.
My mission of Spadow’s Blog was to give everyone rich news about the latest content in the Korean version of MapleStory.
In the beginning my entries were sloppy and not that great, but I have grown in time and become better in it.
It’s quality over quantity what I was aiming for.
For me, creating an informational post with translated info, images & videos from my own and other sources is not easy.
Most of the posts required a lot of hours. Though, it was hard but my blog proved to be a success.

A lot of events have occurred in my personal life, so I really need a break from blogging.
Blogging on the internet is really a passion that I love to do. Did you know that I didn’t like it at first?
I, really am thankful to all my (loyal) readers who visited my blog over the past 2 years and 10 months.
All your comments have been read by me and I’m sorry I could not answer on all your comments.

These days, I don’t spend a lot of time in MapleStory, but I will definitely keep playing, though not much as I used to.
I intend to keep going with uploading videos on my YouTube account and I stay semi-active on Twitter.

Today is a really sad day for me and I wished it would never come, but now I suddenly have to leave you.
I will not delete this blog because I put a lot of effort in everything.
Visitor, it was an honour knowing you. Again thank you very much for sticking with me till the end.

Maybe… just maybe I will come back…


What’s coming after Jump!?

Today the patch for the last part of Jump! has been released to the public server, the ”Arrow of Speed” update.
Don’t worry my friends! There are no nerfs since part 2. From what I’ve heard from friends, the new revamped Party Quests are nice. Fast experience gain.
I will soon make a new blog entry about this update.

So…. Jump! is coming to an end. What’s next? The data of this patch gave me the answer.
The patch note from this update said that Nautilus Port is in the middle of an upgrade.

NPC Valerie! Valerie is the student of Kyrin. Missiles? Construction site?
What is she planning? Hmm…  Valerie told me that she has something in store. Something about.. a secret weapon twice as strong. However, she told me it was a secret.

Hahahaha! You can’t hide secrets from me, Valerie! I know that there is going to be a new Pirate class!
There is a script attached to her in the data. The script is called ”cannon_forewarning”.
The forewarning is her current dialogue. Cannon has to be the new secret weapon that the new Pirate class will use.

New Pirate class?
Read after the jump!

Happy 8th Anniversary!

MapleStory Jump! update

This patch is part of the three phases from the Jump! update. It’ll probably not be as big as Big Bang and Chaos.
This big update will give MapleStory more class refinements and other new content. Why do I know that there will be more class refinements?

Look at the picture above and you can tell that even in Korean, you can see some text at the top.
In March there will be a patch named 역습의칼날 (Counterattack of the Blade), in April there will be a patch named 각성의주문 (The Spell of Awakening) and the last name of the patch that will be released in May is 질주의화살 (The Arrow of Speed).

The Jump! update will start in March and end in May. The patch with the Warrior restructuring (also known as Counterattack of the blade) happened today so that leaves us with April and May.

I believe that the Magician class will be revamped in April, because only Magicians use spells and magic. And in May the Archer class because they use arrows.

What will happen to the Thief and Pirate class? I don’t know, but they deserve adjustment too. Time will tell.
