Help Gaga make a birthday cake and win prizes! Visit Gaga in any town to begin the 4 Candle quest! Gaga will give you one candle to keep lit for forty minutes. After keeping the candle lit for forty minutes, you'll get one piece of birthday cake. You'll need to collect four pieces to complete the 4 Candle quest. Random users will be chosen to win in-game items, cash items, and offline prizes each day until the event period is over. If you're lucky, you can win a MapleStory skinned laptop!
(Note: If you log out of the game before the forty minutes is up, you will lose the candle, and no cake will be given. Any pieces of cake you do earn throughout the event period will stay with you until you complete the quest.)
Patch extraction info was posted by haha for v.70 on his forums, soon afterwards his site went down. leaving only word from the few people who got to see the data.
CWKPQ goggles upgraded (might be gacha only) Item description: "Description: Strange eyewear that allows vision in multiple dimensions.
A short inscription states: "Who says the goggles do nothing?"
Hsalf's hat: (CWKPQ - might be gacha only) Cake boss is back (in some type of mini dungeon/event dungeon) there are 23 new quests large cash shop sale coming Quest UI changes (more info in game for quest help, possible tie to monster book) MW30 from HT (though may not be "released" in this patch, may mean were getting JMS update? mw20 = zakum, mw30 = ht/PB)
quest to get PQ boss cards info: "You can "buy" Special cards once a day with Maple Leaves. the first
boss is Mano, and it took (in KMS) 500 leaves. Then Stumpy was 1,000,
Deo was 1,500, etc. The amount needed for each boss went up by 500.
do this via the guy Tienk in Lith Harbor. You can get King Slime and
the other PQ boss cards in this way (Every special card except those
two event mobs I believe.) The only catch is that you must be at least
within 10 levels of the boss to buy it. So, to get King Slime you'd
have to be at least 30."
