[Sorry the music is messed up, my recorder didn’t work properly.]
FULL credit to Tony (ResistBattie of Khaini) for providing me with a key and making this possible!!! I would also like to thank Hyun for offering me one as well!!!
The new game I told you about, MapleStory Adventures, has its closed beta open right now. It will soon be open for everyone, so I’ll guide you through the whole game~!
NOTE: The game is a single-player game unless you invite people from your Facebook. Also, everything will be done using the mouse.
The game starts by telling you the overall storyline of MapleStory (the Black Mage, the Empress, etc.). Then, you get to choose your job. There are only two jobs you can choose from, Warriors and Mages.
The game is VERY simple and very similar to MapleStory. All you have to do in this game is quests and level up.
There’s only one continent in this game, Victoria Island. And out of that, there’s only Perion, Ellinia, Henesys, and Kerning City (aside from the beginner maps).
Each map can be unlocked as you level up; they require to be a specific level.
Click on the thumbnails to enlarge.
The maps can be found in the ‘Map’ button of the UI. Speaking of UI, I’ll describe it.
Energy: Similar to HP AND MP in the real MapleStory. Your energy recovers every 5 minutes, and you can have more than your max. Each attack you take will consume energy and every time a monster hits you your energy will decrease.
Summon a friend: Summon one of the friends you invited OR the built-in computer friend (your instructor). The computer should have the same level as you (it says it on the star), and when you summon a friend they can help you. For this computer one, it will automatically help you attack monsters and also tells you tips about the game when you click on it.
Equipment, Consume (potions, ‘Use’ tab), and Misc (ETC., your quests items as well). When you hover over a specific item (or actually look next to the symbol), you can see how much power (or energy) it adds.
You can’t really see it, but under the herding stick (which is unequipped) there’s a little red X at the bottom (). When you click that X, you have the option of selling it for gold for the amount it’s worth. So for example, that stick is worth 200 gold~
Contains all the ‘Style’ equipment purchased from the Shop (described later), organized by type~
Unsurprisingly, you get skills to use at this game. You can only use one skill at a time, and you need to purchase upgrades using gold and Skill Permits (, you get them from completing quests). There are several skills you can learn~
As you can see, my Power Strike is level 5. That’s because, if you pay a certain amount of gold/Skill Permits, you can level it up. Your character comes with a level 1 Power Strike when you begin, but there are level requirements to even get each skill.
Mages also have some skills:

Map – Already described
The shop sells in-game items for Gold. There are 3 types of items it sells, gear, style, and special.
Gear is the usual equipment that we use to increase our stats. Here, EVERY equipment gives power and ONLY power. You need to be a specific level to purchase/wear an equipment. The ‘Gear’ equipment available are:
Aside from ‘Gear,’ there’s also ‘Style.’ Style equipment are like Cash Shop equipment.
As you can see, I’m still wearing that shirt but it’s not visible; the mushroom shirt is a ‘Style’ item so it’s the one that’s seen.
Here are the ones available for you to buy (you can purchase them using gold):
Last thing in the Shop is ‘Special’ items. Those are other items that can be bought in that shop. Right now, there’s only one item:
It’s one of those ‘Mystery Boxes.’ It gives you something random. I’m guessing this one gives you something random from the Shop, but I don’t know that for a fact.
All I know is, it’s something like the Henesys Mystery Box, which is like this once opened:

When you kill monsters, they may drop a special item that’s a part of a collection. When you have all the items of a collection, you’ll get a reward (all the rewards are energy but the amount varies). The collections are:
It also gives you a background on what monsters are in that game…
As I said previously, everything in this game is being done with a mouse.
Everything is clicking. When you want to move, just click on the spot you want to go to and this shoe will appear:
It points out the location it’s going to. When you want to attack, just click on the monster and it will automatically go and attack it.
Once clicked, the big fight has begun!
Same thing with portals/NPC’s, just click on them.
When you kill monsters, they will drop Gold/XP stars at a 100% rate.
They might also drop collection items or quest items, but I don’t know about equipment.
XP stars will automatically go to your XP, but you may physically click on gold/items to pick them up. If you don’t, you will receive the gold anyway but any items will disappear.
Note that when you’re attacking, that’s the only time you’re vulnerable. Monsters CANNOT damage you except when you’re attacking them. That’s because, if you ever run out of energy, you will just stop and won’t be harmed in any way till you recover. That’s why you cannot die in this game.
When you attack/move, you can always stop by clicking the red ‘Stop’ button:
Quests are probably the only things you’ll do in this game. The quests are given from NPC’s just like in MapleStory. In the beginning, your job instructor (which is Emily for warriors) will carry out your quests.
Then there won’t be too many notices, you’ll have to find the NPC’s that have quests for you on your own.
The quests are very straight forward so I can’t really spend too much time on them.
That’s pretty much it… I can definitely see why they made this game. If you haven’t noticed already, every single part of this game is in the real MapleStory. They already had everything so they just had to put it together.
And for other news, GMST is glitched for me so I can’t log in (MapleStoryT.exe stops responding when I try to enter my character). And KMST nerf’ed Cannon Shooters even more, and in addition added a few hints of the maps where the Cannon Shooter starts. I don’t think I’ll report Cannon Shooter nerf’s till it comes out to KMS, so I’ll just have to link you to Fiel’s extraction.
Oh and for GMS, only one thing really caught my attention.
^That package is 49,990 NX. If I’m not mistaken, that’s $49.99.
^That package is 99,990 NX. Hmm… $99.99?
Oh and just remembered that there’s another ‘lol2xevent’ in KMS and GMS. Nice for KMS, but BOO for GMS. 2X events are getting old and boring in GMS…
Anyway, the GMS 2X EXP/Drop will be at:
Friday, June 17th from 2PM – 4PM Pacific (5 PM – 7PM Eastern)
Saturday, June 18th from 2PM – 4PM Pacific (5 PM – 7PM Eastern)
Get as many Crystal Chests as you can!
As for KMS, the 2X EXP/Battle Points (for PVP) event will happen at:
2X EXP – June 18th, 1 PM – 4 PM KST
2x BP – June 18th, 5 PM – 7 PM KST
