Put on your best new clothes and celebrate the Chinese New Year in
MapleStory! There’s a lot to do if we’re going to turn this year into
one of luck and prosperity!
Turn Back the Spirit of Evil!
It is commonly believed that the color red has the power to turn back
evil spirits and bad fortune. The heroes of Maple World don’t just wait
for fortune to turn around though; they make their own good luck!
Evil spirits have taken all the special red envelopes made to celebrate
the New Year and planted them on monsters. Get out there and defeat them
to get the red envelopes back! When you find them, turn them in to Mr.
Moneybags for a random number of mesos. Turn in five red envelopes and
get a FREE 30-day Hanbok Cash item!
New Year, New Life!
Begin your Year of the Rabbit by embarking on a new adventure with your
significant Mapler! Any characters that get married during the Chinese
New Year event will receive ten red envelopes to start their new lives
off with wealth and good fortune!

The Mechanic is the latest hero to join the underground Resistance
against the Black Wings. This evil cult has taken over the town of
Edelstein and is using its resources to revive the dreaded Black Mage.
Unlike the Battle Mage and the Wild Hunter, the Mechanic isn’t blessed
with special powers or an animal companion. Instead Mechanics are just
ordinary citizens of Edelstein who use their brave hearts and mechanical
ingenuity to create home-brew weaponry to use against the Black Mage’s
minions. Together with the other heroes of Maple World, they will battle
back against the darkness!
The Mechanic’s greatest ability is his knowledge of robotics. His skill
with the mining Mechs of Edelstein allows him to modify one into a
mobile combat platform boasting a number of unique experimental weapons.
As the Mechanic’s skills increases, the Mech will be able to be
temporarily upgraded with new weapons and abilities and the Mechanic
will add to his destructive repertoire with other robotic companions.
Most Mechanic skills must be performed while mounted on the Mech.
The Prototype is the Mechanic’s first and most basic Mech. While it’s
only a few simple upgrades from the basic mining Mech, don’t
underestimate its power. Abilities like Gatling Gun, ME-07 Drillhands,
and Flame Launcher make it a versatile and useful companion. The
Prototype will be the Mechanic’s companion throughout the Mechanic’s
The second Job Advancement for the Mechanic doesn’t come with an upgrade
to the Mech itself. During this time, the Mechanic is working on
learning new attack skills gaining the ability to move quickly using new
skills such as Rocket Booster and Open Portal: GX-9.
Upon reaching the third Job Advancement, the Mechanic will gain a skill
to temporarily upgrade the Mech with "Siege Mode.” This mode allows the
Mech to transform for a short time into a stationary engine of
destruction. When not in Siege Mode, the Mechanic will work on a host of
subsidiary robots that can be summoned onto the field to aid the
Mechanic in combat. These include a combat satellite and Healing Robot
H-LX that can fix the Mechanic up during a fight.
Once the fourth Job Advancement rolls around, the Mechanic will be ready
to turn the Mech into the ultimate fighting machine! The Mechanic will
gain a skill that allows them to temporarily transform the Prototype
into the Missile Tank, and is as far from the humble mining Mech as
could be imagined. When combined with the new Amplifier Robot AF-11
(which enhances the abilities of everyone within range), the Bots ‘n’
Tots robot factory (which creates a whole bunch of tiny exploding
robots) and the Giant Robot SG-88, there’s almost nothing the Mechanic
can’t take on!
The Mechanic is ready to take his stand in Maple World. Be prepared,
stay informed, and put the Black Wings on notice, because about the
Mechanic will be here on January 19, 2010!
