Have you ever wondered what it was like to control the awesome fury of a Maplestory Boss? Well, wonder no more as Spiegelmann has a new event for you! All you have to do is click on the Boss Arena event notifier on the left side of the screen!
Boss Arena is a contest between you and another Maplestory player. Depending on your win/lose record, you are given a ranking. It's a two round battle where each of you get to play as one of six Maplestory bosses. Each player can choose from Magnus, Ani, Arkarium, Dragonoir, Cygnus and Von Leon. Each player takes a turn as a boss, while the other player attacks them. The player can respawn 15 times in an attempt to chip away the boss's health bar. The player that is able to kill the boss with the most amount of lives left, wins. If both players manage to kill the boss in the same amount of lives or both lose all 15 lives without killing the boss, then the winner is the player with the lowest level. If you are the same level, then it's a draw!
During the Boss Arena battle, each boss has 3 unique attacks and 3 previously chosen skills. Before the battle, each player can choose 2 more skills from a total option of 4. That gives you 3 attacks and 5 skills. Attacks are quicker with shorter cool down times, while the skills are placed in a queue and are performed in order. Additionally, when choosing which boss you want to play as, you can alter your player's attack or defensive powers by moving a slider. More defense means weaker attacks and vice-versa.
When you are fighting against the boss, your jump skills are taken away and instead you are given 10 flash jumps. You might say this is unfair, but players are a lot quicker than the bosses so we had to do something to help even out their speeds. Players cannot use inventory potions, but potions do randomly spawn in the map, so you'll get to use those instead.
At the end of the battle both the winner and the loser are given experience points. The winner, is of course, given more. The winner is also given an untradeable 100% Chaos Scroll. After 10 battles the players are able to collect a Boss Arena Emblem. The emblem is upgradeable 6 times, each time gaining power. You are able to upgrade your emblem each time you go up a rank. Keep in mind through, if you drop a rank, so does you emblem.
So get out there and feel the overwhelming power of being a boss!
