LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MapleStory M, Nexon’s popular free-to-play mobile MMORPG, has officially launched its latest update, bringing the long-awaited Pathfinder class to the game alongside a flurry of winter season events and activities for Maplers to tackle. The Pathfinder update has also increased the max level to 250, and brings new daily and weekly missions, achievements, and a new mini-dungeon to the game.
As of today, the sharpshooting Explorer who wields an ancient bow, Pathfinder, is available as a new playable class. Maplers who pre-registered their Pathfinder were eligible for items such as Auto Battle Charge Tickets and EXP tickets, while all players can take part in Mega Burning and On-Time/Growth Support events to help level-up a new Pathfinder quickly. As a bonus after today’s maintenance, both MapleStory M and MapleStory will be running the Pathfinder Link Event through January 19, 2022, whereby, after reaching level, 70, 120, and 140 on MapleStory M with the Pathfinder, Maplers can garner rewards in both games, including a Pathfinder outfit gift box, Ancient Relic, and more.
The Black Mage's fourth commander, Arkarium, formerly a servant under Rhinne, Maple World's Transcendent of Time, makes his debut in MapleStory M. Maplers will be able to craft all-new boss accessory Dominator Pendant using the materials acquired when defeating Arkarium.
A new map in the Arcane River has also been added, the Dreaming City Lachelein, bringing with it new quests, monsters, area items to discover, and a new Arcane force field. Mini-dungeons have also received a quality of life improvement with this update so that Maplers can auto-play multiple times by using tickets and mesos.
In addition to the events celebrating the arrival of Pathfinder, players can look forward to numerous winter seasonal events occurring throughout December and into the new year:
- I&B Burning Challenge Mission Event - From December 15, 2021 through January 19, 2022, this event returns, granting not only Ice Agent or Burning Agent player titles, but also granting daily missions for players to conquer.
