MapleStory launches last part of BigBang update
The final update for MapleStory’s BigBang update is now live. The update adds the Mechanic, a new class that rides a ME-07 Mech and uses robot minions, capable of attacking, healing, and extra map movement. This comes in addition to two other new classes – Wild Hunter and Battle Mage – as well as improved graphics, two new worlds, quests, rebalancing, and an improved experience curve.
To celebrate, an SP Reset scroll and prizes will be handed out to players between 2 pm January 22 until January 23; 1pm-3pm on January 22 will also offer double experience for players logged in.
MapleStory is published by Nexon, which also publishes Mabinogi, Dungeon Fighter Online, Combat Arms, and Vindictus.

Good things come in threes
MapleStory Big Bang trifecta now complete, unveiling new Mechanic class
Nexon’s triple phased Big Bang update for MapleStory, the 2-D side-scrolling massively multiplayer online game, is now complete with the addition of the “Birth of the Mechanic” content. Maplers can now assume the role of the valiant Mechanic character class while joining the Resistance in their battle against the menacing Black Wings, foul underlings of the wicked Black Mage.
The Mechanic is a member of the Pirate family and carries the same weapons and equipment as a standard Pirate. As a mounted character, the Mechanic rides a powerful ME-07 mech and uses advanced technology to activate robot minions to wreak havoc on unsuspecting Black Wings. Both new and experienced players will find that the Mechanic’s fast-paced combat advantages and simultaneous attacking and healing capabilities, combined with the ability to navigate more efficiently through maps, provides new formidable ways to battle the Black Mage and explore the newly overhauled Maple World.
The three-part Big Bang update has completely renewed the MapleStory that players have come to know and love, introducing a slew of changes that offer players a completely remastered adventure. The previous Big Bang updates, which rolled out in December, introduced a visually richer Maple World, a simpler user interface, redesigned and rebalanced skills, an easier EXP curve, two new worlds, the Wild Hunter and Battle Mage classes and much more. With the addition of the Mechanic class, the new character class trifecta and Big Bang update is now complete.
To celebrate the Birth of the Mechanic release, MapleStory will be having its third Hot Time event on Jan. 22, from 2:00pm PST to 2:01 pm PST. Players logged in at this time will all receive an SP Reset Scroll as well as a chance to win a timeless item or other prizes valued at 5,000 and 10,000 NX. Players are encouraged to log in early and participate in the 2X EXP and drop from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. PST to ensure Hot Time participation.
