[Updated December 6] Maple Alliance Events!

[Update] Added information about the 24-hour 2x EXP event that activates after completing goddess statues.


The war against the Black Mage has finally begun, so join Cygnus in her quest to bring peace to Maple World with these Maple Alliance events! Players Lv. 61 and up will be able to join the Maple Alliance, and start completing Maple Alliance missions to accumulate Determination. As you and other players gain Determination, the World Gauge will gradually fill up and progress the story, and help to unlock the final battle against the Black Mage!

[Updated December 6] In addition, every time one of the three goddess statues is completely filled with Determination, a 2x EXP event will activate for 24 hours in all Reboot and non-Reboot worlds! This event will start up to 1 hour after the goddess statue is completed. Go out and gather Determination to help the Maple Alliance!

Here's a taste of what's available this week as part of the Maple Alliance events:
