When a developer makes a big change to a game, such as through an update, or a patch, they often take the time to explain what they did. Why? So that there is no confusion or misunderstanding about what they did, or how they did it. These are called Patch Notes, and have become a major part of the game development process. MapleStory has had a new major update via the Lucid update, and the team has gone to Patch Notes to explain it all.
First off, the new expansion allows you to go to Lachelein in the Arcane River, and introduces you to Lucid, who is defined as MapleStory’s toughest boss yet. You’re encouraged to explore this new city, take part in numerous events in it, and find out how Lucid came to power. It should be noted, that you have to be at level 220 to partake in many of this updates events.
As for the events, there are several that will be accessible to players. The “Hasty Hunting” event will have you fighting monsters in order to get “Haste Boxes”, which will contain random rewards of all shapes and sizes. This weekend will have a 2x EXP & Drop event, where all EXP is double, and the chance of getting items via drops is doubled too.
There’s also Hot Weekends, Player V Reward Events, plenty of new Arcane Weapons, and much more in this update. So check out MapleStory and its new Lucid update, you might just find something very cool for you to do.
