MapleStory 2 Goes to the Sky and Introduces Soul Binder Class

Skybound Expansion Phase 1 Includes PvP Mode, New Events and Special
Rewards

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–MapleStory
2
, the leading MMORPG available on Nexon
Launcher
and Steam
is bringing a slew of additions including the highly-anticipated
Soul Binder class, new Sky Fortress area, a PvP mode and more.

The game’s new Soul Binder class is a hybrid magic damage dealer
and healer who studies ancient magic taught only in the depths of the
mysterious Halo Mountains. While her spellcasting power is still raw,
players must train to tap into the devastating potential deep inside.

A new area is also available with the Sky Fortress, a new staging
ground warship that remains in the skies. Along with the new location,
the Epic Quest continues with new Faction Missions assigned by the five
factions who have gathered together including the honorable warriors of
the Royal Guard, the agents of the Dark Wind, and the spiritual
spellcasters of the Lumiknights. Each faction has its own shop, unique
items, skins, chat bubbles, decorations, and more.

In addition, MapleStory 2 is introducing its PvP mode with
the Maple Arena, a 1-on-1, best of three matchup between players
to show off their skills and claim brand new PvP gear. Also, to bridge
the gap for Maplers trying to reach the previously released Hard Chaos
Raids, new Normal Chaos Raids have been added and Hard Adventure
Dungeons have been adjusted to help players gear up properly for the
ultimate challenge of Chaos Raids!

To celebrate the update, MapleStory 2 is hosting a Skybound
Celebration
event where Maplers level 10 and above who log-in during
the first month of the update will receive 30 Elixirs, 30 Master
Potions, and a Level Up Booster Ticket, which boosts combat, performance
and fishing experience. Once players reached level 60, they will be able
to claim additional items including a level-up potion which instantly
boosts a character to level 50 and more epic rewards.

With the update, festive seasonal holiday events arrive to Maple World.
Players can step into Merry Village and claim dozens of special prizes.
