v.165 - Pink Bean Superstar Update Preview
Sorry about not having posted patch updates lately; we've been very busy with other stuff behind the screens. This, though, we think you ought to see.
[header]v.165 - Pink Bean: Superstar Update Preview[/header]
Come meet MapleStory's newest superstar--Pink Bean! For a limited time, you can create a special event character and play as MapleStory's first Monster Job! In addition to enjoying the revamped party quests, end-of-summer events and the return of Murgoth Dungeon, players can now experience the improved Tower of Oz dungeon which has been specifically updated for high-level characters!
##PINK BEAN CHARACTER EVENT
For a limited time, create a character with the very first Monster Job available in MapleStory--Pink Bean! Tricked into coming to Henesys by his rival, Black Bean, Pink Bean will be available for character creation from August 19 to October 6. Pink Bean uses Strength, and equips Warrior gear. Everyone will receive one character slot in order to create a Pink Bean character. Pink Bean is an event character, meaning that there are limitations to what the class can do. At the end of the event, the Pink Bean character will be removed. To keep fond memories of your time as Pink Bean, players will receive rewards to use on other characters after the event.
##TOWER OF OZ IMPROVEMENTS
Tower of Oz is receiving some new updates to improve the experience of this dungeon for high-level players. It will now target Lv. 140 players and above. Some of the stages will be reordered and have their requirements fine-tuned. Additionally, Stupid Pills will last longer! A weekly ranking will also be added, along with new rewards. The Ring Box reward list will also be overhauled to remove some of the lower consumable items. Now you'll have a better chance at great rewards!
##PARTY QUEST REVAMP
Chryse is returning after a long closure and has been made into a party quest. Up to four players Lv. 75 to 120 can enter as a group. Many other party quests are receiving updates to their rewards, so that you can get better items even quicker. Their daily limit will be reduced from 10 entries a day to 5, but each run will be more lucrative! Some of the EXP has been increased, and some of the reward requirements have changed. Resurrection of Hoblin King and Kenta in Danger party quests have been redone with new missions and rewards!
Murgoth Dungeon is making a return! Players Lv. 75 and above can enter up to ten times a day as parties of either 1v1 or 2v2. Once inside, clear rooms of monsters and see which team can find three Soul Shards first! But beware; Murgoth Dungeon is full of monsters which represent the five main jobs of MapleStory. How much damage you inflict will depend on your class! Earn points to exchange for rings, masks and more.
How time flies! Place Time Capsules on maps, go hunt monsters around your character level, and your Time Capsule will open to give you a sweet reward. Then help Cassandra pick lemons for her lemonade stand to earn mesos and a store permit! And enjoy the last of the summer with a camping trip. Can you keep away the hungry animals that want to take your food? Earn restorative items, chairs, and medals!

[quote=chyeung360]Update notes come out the night before patch begins. The content previews are released a week beforehand. So wait a week and update notes will come out.[/quote]
There is no page for such things though...Can't even see previous update notes?
[quote=ando2112]But where are the update notes...
I always read these things for the detail, and they're gone?
Example: Whats the stats of this Pink Bean medal...Or how hard will his 30 missions be?[/quote]

Stealth R&J nerf?
Update looks fun. I might return for a little while to try out the PB class even if it's temp only. Murgoth was really fun when it came out. Glad it's back. Other than that though I don't see many players doing the new pqs at all. If no one pqs now I doubt anyone will try out the revamps. Maybe one time to see if the xp is better or not but that's about it.
This actually looks really fun!
I kinda hope the new Chryse PQ will be on par with Romeo & Juliet so it gives players something other than a grind fest.
I hope we get some neat stuff to remember our pink beans
The trailer is so cute! <3
[quote=wall]Time to quit my shade and temporarily fund a pink bean[/quote]
If it's the same as KMS, you can't "fund" it.
You can't even trade with other users.
Glad to see the return of murgoth dungeon! Good thing I decided against dropping those murgoth shards.
Yay, I have a reason to play again
Finally, 42f revamp for Heroes to enjoy.
Time to stop begging for mesos and temporarily beg fo-
How do I nominate myself as Pink Bean councilor?
Rip when class is removed.
