One of the main features of Big Bang is an improved experience curve. With anywhere from 2 to 5 times faster, 2x EXP coupons are no longer an essential part of the leveling experience and so we will remove the coupons from the Cash Shop with Big Bang. 

Maplers who still have 2x EXP coupons in their inventory will be refunded the remaining time with Maple Points. Please give us a few hours after the game is live tomorrow to complete the refund. 2x Drop coupons are not affected by this change. 

Thank you and see you in Maple World!

(From 12/7/10 to 12/23/10)

MapleStory went from almost nothing to an amazing place to be in just a few short years. To celebrate its growth, we’d like to give you the Evolving Ring!

When you first get it, it will have no stats, but give it time and it will evolve into the best ring you own!

This is what you do on your first day of the event:

1. Log in and talk to Gaga to receive a ring. This ring will have no stats.
2. Explore the new Maple World for an hour. 
If you log out not having stayed the full hour, the ring will disappear.
3. When you have stayed the full hour in Maple World, your ring will evolve 
into a level 1 ring automatically!

From your second day to December 23, 2010:

1. Log in and tell Gaga you want to evolve your ring. He will give you a box.
2. Explore the new Maple World for an hour. 
If you log out not having stayed the full hour, the box will disappear.
3. When you have stayed the hour, the box will automatically open up to reveal a potion.
4. Take the potion to Gaga to evolve your ring.

So the Evolving Ring can evolve up to 17 times, once per day! 

No matter what, be sure to talk to Gaga on December 23rd to evolve your ring one last time. Because on this day, he will not only upgrade your ring to have more stats, he will upgrade it to be TRADABLE.

Why wait to download the Big Bang patch? Download NOW and avoid waiting on Tuesday.

The Manual Patch is only available to players who already have version 0.92 installed. So if you have an older version of MapleStory, you will have to wait till launch to update the game.

To manual patch please follow these instructions.

1. Download the Manual Patch here
2. WAIT! Do not proceed until the Big Bang update begins and the game servers are down.
3. Copy the Manual Patch files into your MapleStory folder, typically C:\Nexon\MapleStory
4. Once the Big Bang update completes and the game servers are back Big Bang!

Please note if you copy the manual patch files into your MapleStory folder before the Big Bang update begins, you will not be able to start the game. Once the files are copied, MapleStory will only start after the Big Bang update is complete.

Are you ready to download the Big Bang?

Big Bang Changes
- Leveling

o As mentioned in a previous post, the experience curve for leveling is much less steep after Big Bang than it was previously. This means from Lv.10 on, the amount of experience points needed to progress from one level to the next is lower, making leveling up faster throughout levels 10 - 200.

- Fighting

o Extensive changes have been made to the fighting system. The formulas for damage, defense, accuracy, and avoidability have all been extensively overhauled. Important to note for new and old players alike is that accuracy is decreased by a set amount for every level lower than a monster you are, to prevent players from attempting to hunt monsters that would be too difficult for them.

- Maps

o Several changes have been made to maps throughout Maple World, with the most extensive change being a completely rearranged Victoria Island.

o Towns have new layouts, and many monster maps have been removed or replaced.

o Foot travel to the Victoria Island towns has been expedited with the addition of Six Path Crossway to the center of the island as a hub.

§ The entrance to Sleepywood and the airships to Orbis and Ereve have been moved to Six Path Crossway as well.

o Some modifications have been made to Orbis to make the town easier to navigate.

- Item Drops

o The drop rates of many Use and some Etc. items have been increased, with the drop rate of most HP and MP recovery items having been increased considerably.

- Party Quests

o The starting levels for some party quests have been changed, and the upper level restriction for most party quests has been removed.

o Many party quests that weren’t previously in the Party Search menu have been added to it.

o Modifications have been made to some of the party quests, such as First Time Together.

o Astaroth has been added as an option to the Dimensional Mirror for characters of the appropriate levels.

- Quests

o Most NPCs in Maple World received a lesson in grammar, so their dialog should be grammatically correct.

o Most quests in the game have been retooled. Quest requirements have been adjusted in response to the changes in maps and in monster levels.

o Quests that are now for a different level than before have had their rewards adjusted accordingly.

o The hunting and/or collecting requirements for the completion of many quests have been lowered to expedite their completion.

o The experience rewarded for many quests that are still for the same level has been increased.

- Monsters

o Most monsters throughout Maple World have had adjustments made to their levels, to varying degrees.

o The stats of monsters—as well as the experience they give, the amount of mesos they drop, and the level of the equipment they drop—have been adjusted accordingly.

o The levels of monsters have been specifically adjusted and consolidated to one area in order to prevent an excessive need for travel throughout Maple World for quests of certain level.

o Some monster maps are now restricted by level to help prevent players from wandering into areas that are beyond their level range.

- Skills

o Skills for all jobs have been streamlined and consolidated into the most useful ones.

o If you had Skill Points assigned to a skill that has been removed, those points will be returned to your SP pool.

o A warning message will appear when you assign all SP normally obtainable to a lower job, to prevent you from accidentally assigning too many SP to an earlier job.

New Events
- Evolving Ring [12.07.2010 - 12.23.2010]: A blank ring that can be upgraded once per day for a maximum of 17 times. On The final day of the event, the ring in your inventory will evolve into a tradable ring.

o Talk to Gaga in major towns to get a level 0 ring. Stay logged in for an hour to evolve the ring into a level 1 ring. Remember to not log out until your level 0 ring has reached level 1, otherwise you’ll have to start again.

o Log in every day and ask Gaga for an upgrade. Hold the item that he gives you for an hour, and then return the potion back to Gaga to increase the ring by 1 level. Logging out before the one hour mark will cause the item to disappear and you'll have to start again.

o The ring must be in your Equip inventory in order for it to gain a level.

o On December 23rd, the current version of the ring will become tradable. This does not apply to users who start the event on this day.

o For reaching milestone levels of 20, 60, 80, 100, 120, 140 and 160, you will receive an Energy Capsule. This capsule can be traded to a character on the same account and can only be used by a Resistance character for an instant EXP injection. Doctor's orders restrict 7 uses of this item to prevent unwanted side effects.

o For reaching level 40, you’ll receive a special Weapon Box that can be moved to another character on the same account. This box contains a Resistance-specific weapon, so it can only be used by members of the Resistance.

Dread tidings from the Sea of Fog. Rumors swirl around. Unbelievable tales of a ship with rotten planks and tattered sails that swoop down on unwary vessels and plunder them. And the crew of this dread ship? Could it be that the dead have escaped from Davy Jones’ Locker and are even now terrorizing the water of Maple World?


The call goes out for brave adventurers to find this strange apparition, battle its undead crew and destroy the ghost ship’s mysterious skipper to make the sea lanes safe once again. Do you have what it takes to battle against this watery terror?


To enlist in the battle against the ghost ship:

     - Ghost ship is a "race”-style Party Quest. In order to participate, your character must be levels 60-80.
     - Qualified characters will receive an auto start quest from Captain Hwang when you log in.

     - To begin, take the Dolphin Tax to the Sea of Fog.

     - Assemble a group of three and talk to Norrington for permission to enter the ship.

     - When an opposing team is assembled, you will have to race through the ship’s five rooms to the captain’s cabin. When the captain is defeated, the team with the most monster kills will receive bonus EXP in addition to the normal EXP granted during the course of the quest.

     - In addition to EXP awards, persistent players will receive equipment for winning the Public Quest 30 and 50 times.
