Let MapleStory Be Your Valentine! 2/8 – 2/28

Love is in the air! It's time to hold that special someone close and celebrate by taking part in these fun events!

Choco Onslaught

Wednesday, February 8 – Tuesday, February 28

Everyone loves chocolate on Valentine’s Day, but so many people are sharing chocolate that it’s threatening to take over Maple World! NPC Cassandra is concerned about this threat and wants you to stop it by eating all the chocolate in the world. Players Lv. 33 and above can begin by accepting the quest ‘This Is the Age of Choco!’ from the event notifier on the left-side of the screen. Complete the guide quests to receive a Choco Syringe, a useful item for stuffing chocolate into your mouth.

Hunt monsters within your level range (10 levels below and 20 levels above) to receive Sweetheart Choco. Use your Choco Syringe to consume Sweetheart Choco, which increases your Choco Power, a special buff skill. Choco Power can be increased all the way to Lv. 250 and gives different stat boosts (Speed, Jump, ATT, DEF, etc.)  for different level ranges. Cacao Combo EXP orbs also give Choco Power during the event. You can check your Choco Power level with the Choco Syringe.

Be careful, though. Eating too much chocolate at once can trigger Choco Frenzy, which will cause you to lose Choco Power and spew a small percentage of the lost chocolates. If you trigger Choco Frenzy, however, you will be able to increase your Choco Power levels at an increased rate for a limited amount of time afterwards.


Because of all the chocolate in the world, the elite monsters have also become choco-crazed! Defeat these monsters to obtain the Golden Choco Tickets they drop, and then use a Golden Choco Ticket to take a trip to Choco World.

When you use a Golden Choco Ticket, you will be transported to one of three special mission maps. In Choco Crush, you must eliminate as many choco monsters as you can within the time limit to obtain Sweetheart Choco.

In Falling Choco, you must collect falling Sweetheart Choco while avoiding other falling obstacles.

In Choco-crazed Nue, you must defeat the boss, Choco-crazed Nue, to obtain Sweetheart Choco. Beware his Choco Breath attacks!

You can also complete daily missions and achievements to obtain various rewards such as a Chocolate Overload or Chocolate Emissions facial accessory, Chocolate Rain weather effect, EXP coupons, Golden Choco Tickets, Sweetheart Choco, Reward Points, Selective 4 Slot Coupon, and Choco Syringe Chair.

You can also receive a medal and title:

  • Chocophile: Medal. Untradeable. STR/DEX/INT/LUK: +4. Weapon ATT/Magic ATT: +3.
  • Choco Crusader: Title. Untradeable.

You can also purchase helpful items in the Maple Rewards Shop (located within the Cash Shop) to assist you during the event:
