Bug fixes/Changes/Known Issues

– Truckers, Galloperas and numerous monsters were awarding more EXP than intended.
The EXP awarded for killing them has been tuned to be in line with monsters of
the similar level.
– Winning the Sea of Fog PQ no longer grants more EXP than shown.
– Players should no longer disconnect when using Spouse Chat.
– Players should no longer be sent to Ariant when exiting the Free Market if they
entered from Magatia.
– Players should no longer be sent to NLC Town Center when exiting the Free Market
if they entered from Ariant.

Tower after defeating the Prime Minister.
– Many of Zipangu’s maps have had their art adjusted for 1024×768 resolution.
– The music should no longer loop when fighting Palpulatus.
– It is true that Duey will no longer offer his services. We threw him a great retirement
party and he’s now sipping lemonade on an island off the coast of Florina Beach.

  1. Lol, I was late on telling you the next world was Arcania.

    • You might also want to put a poll for the next world after Arcania.
      Also, fix your post. It has duplicates of pictures in there.
      Other than that, your website is running fairly well.
      Thanks for the updates.

  2. update note : spam misplaced pictures xD
    but what in the world (haha get it) is GMS thinking, we just got 2 new worlds…
    now lets see this from a realistic perspective :
    If people wanna start in a new world they would have done that in either zenith or el nido.
    If they only wanted to make a Resistance char in a new world they would have waited for Resistance and then made it in zenith or el nido.
    If they didnt wanna start in a new world they would have never made a char in zenith or el nido.
    Its not like zenith or el nido now are full, so why bother making another new world 2 weeks after 2 new worlds got released, its not like people wanna stop playing their chars no the new worlds zenith or el nido to start in another new world,
    if they would have been smart they would have released all the 4 worlds at the same time, cause i still asume that with mechanic we wil get another new world, cause in tespia these (?) 4 worlds had bandanas.

    seems like they dropped rooney and Duey, but we can still visit Duey, im gonna visit him soon 😛
    But i wonder why they droped Duey…. okay i never used him but .. nah okay he was useless

  3. msupdate :
    I can’t imagine MapleStory without Duey. So many people depended on him.

    are you serious ? almost no one used Duey .. oooh wait since this is his funeral,
    Duey, you made the lifes of so many people so easier.
    You were a great Hero and will be missed.
    And who knows, maybe Duey wil come back as a new job : Deliverman
    Or maybe it turns out hes gonna work for the blackwings and deliver their mail.

    But what is with the pictures zach ?
    i mean now we all got DEMENTHOS in out little picture above our name

  4. Times were added by 2 hours.

  5. I thought it was 10 Hours?

  6. sohbet :

    my motherlanguage isn’t english, but isn’t it merry christmas ?
