MapleStory M, the free-to-play, massively multiplayer online mobile game for iOS and Android, has received a new content update that brings a multitude of new material for players, including three new explorer classes, improved equipment enhancement systems, and more.
Starting today, players can delve into Maple World using three new unique explorer characters with different abilities. This includes the swift thief Shadower character who deals close-combat damage with a dagger, the Hero warrior who uses “Two-Handed Sword” and “Two-Handed Axe” as main weapons for powerful blows to enemies, and the Arch Mage (Ice/Lightning), the flashiest Magician Class of Maple World who uses Ice and Lightning properties to annihilate enemies.
Players will also be able to enjoy a new equipment enhancement system. This update includes the Emblem Enhancement where “Emblem Trace” can be extracted from Elite items and can be used for “Emblem Enhancement” to elevate abilities of Emblem to be more powerful. It also features the Exaltation system where players must use Elite equipment that is identical to the base equipment or utilize Exaltation Stones as material during Exaltation.
