Cold That Came with the Tempest

November 29, 2012 - January 29, 2012
Requirement: Lv.13 or above

A twisted game of tag where the sole objective is you see if you can pass on your sickness to other Maplers! See if you can avoid the sniffles during the whole event. You can catch the contagion from Cassandra, and the Maple Administrator is your makeshift doctor helping to cure you.

The Cold to End All Colds
  • Talk to the Maple Admin directly or through the Event Notifier.
  • If you get a cold, talk to the Maple Admin and ask her for a diagnosis.
  • She can temporary suppress your symptoms.
Contagious Tempest
  • Talk to Cassandra, the only NPC who managed to get sick.
  • You should really be careful, you don’t want to get sick either.
  • Seriously, she does look really sick… maybe you should stop talking to her.
