It’s the biggest event in Maple World’s history and the hottest 2D MMORPG in the world is about to get hotter.
If you are exploring the Maple World -- that is, you’re NOT in the Cash Shop, MTS, or on a boat -- you’re going to be very happy this Saturday!
Hot and happy on this day, this minute:
Pacific: Saturday, December 11, 2010, 2:00 PM - 2:01 PM Eastern: Saturday, December 11, 2010, 5:00 PM - 5:01 PM Hours are based on the server time, as seen on the official MapleStory website.
At that time on Saturday, for one single minute, everyone who’s logged in the game will automatically receive a gift box in their inventory.*
Don’t risk the chance of missing the hottest minute of Big Bang and log in before 2 PM. Then, if you really must leave, wait until you have the gift box safely in the inventory.
So just what is inside this special gift box? An SP Reset Scroll.
But it’s no ordinary SP Reset Scroll, this is the ultimate SP Reset Scroll!
For some of you, this event on Saturday will be especially hot as you may receive a Cash Shop favorite like the 7-day Aura Ring and Henesys Face Coupon (Reg), or one of the various 60% scrolls!
* Please make sure you have space in your inventory to receive the item. If you were logged in during Hot Time and were unable to receive the item for any reason, you may still talk to Cassandra from 2:30 PM to 8:00 PM Pacific (5:30 PM to 11:00 PM Eastern) on December 11, 2010 to claim your gift box.
Worried you might miss this very short event? Then log in early Saturday for a two-hour 2x EXP and Drop event! Pacific: Saturday, December 11, 2010 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Eastern: Saturday, December 11, 2010 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM

You need all the help you can get with the Black Mage threatening to take over the world! That’s why we’re giving EVERY CHARACTER -- you read it right, that’s EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER -- a free SP Reset Scroll!
This SP Reset Scroll is not your average scroll though -- this is the scroll to top all SP Reset Scrolls! With one use, it will reset all your Skill Points except your beginner’s skills!
From 12/9/10 to 11:59 PM on 12/15/10, for one entire week, log into every character you play to receive this awesome SP Reset Scroll each! Have 14 characters? Log in 14 times at least!
One thing though, once your character receives the SP Reset Scroll you only have 24 hours to use the SP Reset Scroll because after 24 hours, it will disappear!
