GMS – v.152: Mark of Honor, Hieizan Temple Update Highlights

Nexon America has announced GMS’ next update which has to do with a series of older patches, the Mark of Honor content. This time, they have brought a theme dungeon where players can “go back in time” into the Sengoku Era where they can experience game play as Hayato and Kanna and fight a variety of different monsters. This patch brings two major updates as well. Firstly is the new region of Kritias, a “mysterious” kingdom next to Leafre. Kritias will entail a variety of events that feature equipment, chairs, and skins. Jett, the GMS exclusive class, will be going through some MAJOR revamps including their skills and their storyline. Kudos to you folks who kept faith in Jett, for the time has now come. Read on to read the actual update highlights as well as a few words from me.

This summer, role-play as your favorite Sengoku characters in Mark of Honor: Hieizan Temple. Take on this challenging new dungeon, guarded by the Princess No, as Kanna or Hayato, or their friend and ally Ayame.

Once you’ve reigned supreme, try out the new area of Kritias. Plus, try out the revamped Jett class, now with all-new skills and a more detailed back-story! While you’re out bounty-hunting, keep an out for new Wanted posters, and defeat the monsters listed to receive their bounty.

But that’s not all! School is back in session at Maple Leaf High and Mr. Schrodinger needs your help! Read on for all the details on MapleStory’s newest update.

Go back in time and play as Kanna, Hayato, or their friend Ayame in the days before they traveled to Maple World. Try out these heroes’ special skills, and explore the new Hieizan Temple. Then, embark upon the Princess No Expedition to receive a special Jewel Box containing Lv. 140 secondary weapon equips and other rewards, such as a Princess No Chair.

Check out the new high-level area of Kritias! A mysterious kingdom has appeared near Leafre…what could lay inside? Hunt Commanders and Minion Monsters to earn Kritias Points and Kritias Coins, then trade them in for Lv. 150 earrings, shoulders, and glove equips. You can also complete daily quests and take part in Invasion Events. New damage skins, chairs and mounts are just some of the rewards waiting for you in Kritias.

Jett is getting an upgrade, with a completely revamped set of skills. With Backup Beatdown, you can launch a flurry of attacks with your bounty hunter allies, while Starforce Salvo will fire a repeated hail of energy bolts. Jett is also getting a new secondary weapon and an increase to HP! With an expanded intro, you’ll get a deeper insight into the back-story of MapleStory’s favorite bounty hunter.

Class is in session, and Mr. Schrodinger needs his students’ full attention! Fight your way through classrooms, completing quests along the way. Break desks and other furniture to rescue lost friends and collect recyclables. Gotta keep that school green! Collect Model Student Candy and exchange it for brand-new totems and pocket items.

It’s monster hunting time! During the Bounty Hunter Event, you’ll find Wanted posters for infamous monsters all over Maple World. Collect their bounties and you could receive sunglasses, rings, necklaces and earrings, plus special medals and badges. Want a break from bounty hunting? Collect Pearlescent Clamshells from monsters in the Clam Shell Attendance Check Event to earn various scrolls, plus a Character Slot Expansion Coupon!

Lucky for me, one of my main characters is a Hayato, a class that I genuinely love and have always found ridiculously fun. Hope you guys can have similar experience with this new Sengoku theme dungeon! It’s great that we’re getting some new content to go through as I will definitely be exploring Kritias myself. Jett’s skills look rather…original? We’ll have to see in-game. I gotta say though, for all of you that have Jett mains, it’s impressive you’ve stuck this far and have dealt with the negativity yielded by a lot of players which was provoked by Jett’s sort of “copied” skills at the beginning. I had a bit of hope in this class as well. I’m glad it’s getting a revamp. Oh, and what a “great” way to approach the school year…with Maple Leaf High. *facepalm*

Will any of you be trying out Jett in this update? I certainly will be trying one out. I sort of liked Jett when it first came out but grew bored of the gameplay. Hopefully, this revamp will be a phenomenal refresh! Most importantly, though, I am excited to try out the new region of Kritias.


Until next time,
