GMS: v.137 – Unleashed Update Highlights & World Transfer Event

The update highlights for v.137, the first part of the Unleashed update, has arrived sooner than I thought! This patch is going to to be quite the package, and the changes are really exciting. Levels aren’t the only thing that are getting a new cap in this patch! The new content coming for higher levels is also super packed with stuff to do.

Going through the highlights, here’s what we’ve got from the official website post:

Increased: Max Level, Max Damage, Max HP, Max Mesos

The level cap has been raised from 200 to 250! The means jobs and characters that were previously capped at 200 can now climb even higher! To aid your climb to the top, we’ve also increased the maximum damage limit from 999,999 to 50,000,000 and the health point cap from 99,999 to 500,000. The meso cap has been increased as well, allowing you to build a bigger nest egg.

New: Level 3 Link Skills

Along with the higher level cap, several characters’ link skills will now go up to level 3 when they reach level 210. This includes the link skills for Cannoneers, Mercedes, Phantom, Luminous, the Demon Slayer, Mihile, Kaiser, and Angelic Buster.

New: Twilight Perion

Journey to Twilight Perion, a new area in the Gate to the Future. Monsters range from Lv.190 – 200. In addition to regular maps with swollen stumps, pillaging boars, and sinister masks, there are four party play maps filled with ancient golems for you and your friends to battle!

New: Spirit Valley

Stop by Monster Park to challenge the Spirit Valley Dungeon, open to characters Lv.200 – 209. Monsters range from Lv.201 – 209.

New: Twisted Aqua Road

Investigate the strange happenings of the Twisted Aqua Road theme dungeon. Monsters range from Lv.200 – 210.

New: Alien Visitor

Help Dr. Bing uncover the secrets of a crashed spaceship in the new Alien Visitor party quest. Visitor enemies are level 209.

New: Fantasy Theme World

Romp around Fantasy Theme World in Ludibrium, the latest in the Fantasy brand theme parks. Earn a new medal and win a new helmet to spruce up your character! Monsters range from Lv.125 – 140.

New: Cooking with Tangyoon

Help Tangyoon prepare delicious dishes in exchange for EXP and new equipment! This party quest is for characters Lv.60 – 90; the monsters and EXP scale to your level.

Revamped: User Interface

Several parts of the UI have been remodeled, including updated designs for the equipment, item, and skill inventories, the character stat menu, the world map, and the tooltips for skills and items. The new appraisal system allows you to reveal the secret stats of equipment with hidden Potential, and the item enhancement menu automatically sorts your equipment upgrade items and allows you to combine scrolls to create a random new one. You’ll now also be able to hide your quest and event notifiers on the left side of the game window, and the Monster Life button window will disappear after your farm reaches Lv.2, at which point you can access your farm through your Game Menu.

Revamped: Malaysia and Singapore

Several quests and all of the monster levels have been updated to have better gameplay flow. New quests involving Captain Latanica and Krexel have been added which allow you to obtain the new Ghost Ship Exorcist badge and the new Krexel Pauldron. Region maps have also been added to assist you in navigating these areas.Monsters in Malaysia now range from Lv.131 – 150. Monsters in Singapore now range from Lv.145 – 170.

Updated: Masteria Monsters

The levels of most monsters in Masteria outside of the Prendergast Mansion have been updated to allow for smoother gameplay throughout the region. Monsters outside of the haunted house now range from Lv.100 – 120.

Updated: Special Victoria Island bosses

If you previously out-leveled your chance to fight Andras, Marbas, Amdusias, Valefor, Crocell, or Astaroth, we’ve removed the level cap to fight them, as well as for the quests to get the job –specific hats associated with the first five.

Back from hiatus: Sharenian Guild Party Quest

The Sharenian Guild PQ was closed before the guild system was updated because it was designed to function with the old guild system. After making some modifications to ensure it doesn’t conflict with the current guild system, we’ve brought it back with the same gameplay, as you requested.

Event: Unleashed Coin Shop

Gale and Spark restocked after closing their Tempest shops and have returned with an assortment of wares, including new Unleashed set equipment!

…and more!

All of this and more will arrive on June 19! Stay tuned for the update notes to get more details.

There really aren’t enough words to describe my feelings for this patch. Nexon is really doing us (as Maplers) so many favors and the changes’ pros definitely outweigh the cons. Tons of high-level content to accomodate the brand new level cap, a fresh new UI, and the return of quite a few things (mostly GPQ for that matter; yay!).

Speaking of which, Nexon is holding a ‘World Transfer Event’. Yeah, you read that right. Starting June 19th, the same day of the new patch, you will be able to select one character and choose a world to transfer to, except Scania. Oh, and the best part is, it’s only 1 MESO! However, there are a few restrictions that unfortunately come with this deal. The details are as followed, directly from the website:

Details:

  • The World Transfer item can be purchased through the Cash Shop for 1 meso from June 19 to June 26th.
  • However, the actual world transfer will take place during a maintenance after the event period has ended.
  • You can only purchase this item once per account. So choose carefully!
  • Your character must be at least level 50.
  • You CANNOT transfer to Scania.
  • Your character must not be married or a Guild leader.
  • Your account cannot have any recent or serious ban history.
  • You can only take up to 100 million mesos with your character to your new world.
  • You must have an empty character slot on the world you wish to transfer to.
  • You will lose any items you have stored on Fredrick or your Hired Merchant.

This is really interesting. Maybe this is a strategy to even out the worlds’ populations? Or maybe just to indirectly reorganize them? I can’t wait to see what is made of this opportunity. Stay tuned for my continued coverage on MapleStory Unleashed!

Until next time,

Waru
