#19 – Big Bang – Shadower > Night Lord in Mobbing

Yup, you heard me, that’s right! The Shadower seems to have an awesome DPM on mobs now, outperforming the Night Lord by far. From this Shadower video and this Night Lord video, the Shadower seems to be the superior job here! What speed! With the added flash jump, the Shadower improves!

Note that the levels are very similar–I got AristosMS’ videos for this one.

I’m not sure about the other jobs, but Shadowers rule!

Will there be a bandwagon?  Read a BasilMarket video’s comments about Shadowers after the Big Bang here.


#4 – “The Visitors” Event! Part II Post-poned!

Today was the start of “The Visitors” Event’s Part/Stage II!  It seems exciting, but there is some problems today…

The Server Crashed!



The servers of Windia, Broa, Bera, Scania, Mardia, Khaini and others crashed today.  Upon the start of Part II, the majority of the channels on the servers crashed and disconnected many Maplers.  BasilMarket is in a scramble, and there is so much activity that a thread was designated to this issue on this website.  This thread has grown very fast in just a matter of minutes.  The thread is currently growing very fast, and is at 48 pages.  Here is the link to the thread:  link to thread.

Nexon still hasn’t addressed this issue.

Update! Nexon did an unscheduled server maintenance to deal with this problem.  Link to article:  here.

The two pictures above are of Channel 7 and Channel 2.  I have been disconnected several times.  Channel 4 and 7 seemed to be the only ones that didn’t crash.  I connected long enough to get screenshots of both the filled Channel 7 and the empty Channel 2.

What is the cause of this sudden server crash? Was there a rollback?

I’ve been hearing some slight speculation that either hackers are invading MapleStory, the servers are being over-loaded, or that Stages 1 and 2 of this event are going at the same time.  Stage II was supposed to happen in 7 days.  But, the banner’s screen says “Part II” instead of  “Stage II.”

lailaimoon says:  “Maybe these problems are because Nexon is cramming too many contents into patches at a time? -o-“

kikutaiamu (or thetank2 on basil) says: “It’s probably because as of now, stage 1 and stage 2 are happening SIMULTANEOUSLY.

Perhaps, this is happened because of this person?

redlinexd says:  ” every since potential came out, everything is eff’d up, did u guys see the person who potentialed a red craven over 24 times? how on earth does that happen?”

kikutaiamu (or thetank2 on basil) said in response:  “He ENHANCED his craven 24 times, not POTENTIALLED. it happens because of a PACKET EDITOR hack.

Maybe there was, as of this comment on a thread from BasilMarket as proof:

LightAmazigh says: “Because before setting up a shop, I was equipped with a Red Whip, until I decided to remove it. But when I went on again, I saw myself wearing that Red Whip

Everyone seems to be in a scramble. Many people seem to be upset about the server crash.  Many are quoting the end of the world, 2012, and are blaming Nexon for this.  Nexon is currently working on this, and started a server maintenance.

But, they are still angry.  Is there going to be a second major rollback, like the Explorer’s Ring Event?


Yeah, many people are angry.  But, if you were doing the Part II quest, there might be a way to get your Crystanol back:

mintroparan says: “I got d/ced for the maintenance right when I was about to get my Bing Suit.
Heres a tip: Once you get the Crystanol Fragment, go out and get hit by a monster, then cc, you will get your fragment back.
You only get the fragment back, when you are in the room with the quest’s NPC in it.”

Thanks, mintroparan.

Your characters should not be stuck in the event map if it is canceled, delayed, or etc.

wjang59 (BS username) says:  “well pretty much that means alot of characters might be stuck untill next week [including me since i was at the event map]”

Golfek says in response: “Unless you haven’t noticed. If you log out in the Deep Sea, Mine, etc. you get sent back to Henesys when you log in.”

#2 – The Visitors – Preview

Link to Nexon’s Articlehttp://maplestory.nexon.net/News/Events.aspx?boardNo=200&contentNo=008mo&pageIndex=1

The Omega Sector Secret Service is activated!  As the visitors come to the Maple World, a new, dynamic, real-time event is launched!  Deemed, “The Visitors,” it is a special event which has been hinted to have original content, even though Thailand MS got it as well.  I have heard that we are getting much more content than TMS.

However, is Nexon trying to prove to the Maple community that they do work hard and they can make a good game?  Surprising, perhaps this is the warm-up to the highly-anticipated Big Bang?  Perhaps this will be interesting…

#1 – Tespia and the Invaders

Link to Nexon’s Articles:

The invaders are coming!  Apparently, some people had suspicions about a new wallpaper that had come out recently a few days ago.  What was it?  It couldn’t be Neo Tokyo because the backgrounds and characters in the wallpaper didn’t look like it.  Was it a Masteria expansion?  Yes, maybe!  The Krakian Jungle of Masteria was noted to be a very highly-advanced civilization, in the middle of a jungle.

Most people thought it was this… until recently.

It has been revealed by the article I linked to that this wallpaper shows pictures of not a new Masteria area, but new content for GMS.  There is even an exclusive party quest just for GMS, though the area has been released in ThailandMS, though, according to this article, we got the content on the new Tespia server first.

So welcome to GMS, Tespia!

#0 – Welcome to the blog!

Welcome to Widojin’s MapleStory News! This is my first MapleStory news blog, and it will focus on the Global version of MapleStory.

I created this blog because new GMS exclusive content pushed me to.  Now, I will try and give information on MapleStory updates and GMS things.  I may just spin things around, but oh well.

My in-game character is Widojin on Windia, in GMS.  I might create more in the future, but for now, this is all I have.;

Thanks for coming to this blog, everyone!
