#11 – “The Visitors” – Part II!

Part II started!

Yes, it is true.  Part II has started.  However, more or less because of the server crash almost a week before, there is no opening banner that says, “Part II.”  Thankfully, I have the banner right here, when the servers crashed.

However, I am currently having connection problems.  I’m not sure if it’s just me.  Channel 6 of Windia is very empty right now, and I couldn’t manage to hold a connection for more than 15 seconds.

Update! Channel 1 of Windia is strangely empty.

It must have crashed.

In other news, I’ve discovered the reason for the mysterious banner/wallpaper that first mislead people to believe it was the Krakien Jungle expansion for Masteria.  What appears to be a town in MapleStory is actually the future, where aliens took over the Maple World.

Now, the whole point of the event is to stop the aliens.  But wait, if, in the future, the whole event concluded already, does this mean that the plan doesn’t work?

Anyways, the quests required to get the Crystanol involve platforming and avoiding aliens by hiding behind bushes.

Yes, you can hide behind them.

For me, the jump quest took the most of my time.  I failed about 3 times doing it, but I finally got to the top.  Did I mention they have moving platforms?  They are very annoying, especially when you jump just a little too early.  The crystal is very big (and it strangely looks kind of like the Ellinia crystal, if I’m correct) and obvious, so you should have no hard time finding it.

You could just try to sneak past the aliens and lose your Crystanol Shard when you get caught, or, you could just change channels.  Yes, it teleports you back to the base, but you can just go back to the future and talk to Rozz.  After that, you acquire the Bing Machine, the entire set.  I love how I can finally kill aliens now.

Yeah, my character looks sharp. (Of course I’m kidding!)

After you acquire the suit, you can now start a string of four repeatable quests which will give you tokens to upgrade your suit with.  I heard you can upgrade your suit to a permanent state, but only if you have all of your upgrades maxed out, I think.

Well, since I’m not doing the quests today, I’ll update this blog later.

Oh, and this is definitely being added to the “History of GMS” page.
