Blog: Learn more about Limitless with SavageAce

Hi Maplers,

Today, we’d like to talk a little bit more about what’s coming your way soon in the MapleStory V: Limitless update on November 30th.

This Limitless update is all about getting you ready for 5th Job coming in December. To help you reach level 200, we’re opening several events and applying some changes to help you level faster.

The Mega Burning Project event is back and for those of you who haven’t participated in this event in the past, you can select one new character to get two free levels every time they level up!  Pro tip: You’ll want to burn your character at level 2 or 5 to get the most benefit.

For those of you who reach level 140, the Breakthrough V event will be giving you a free level up potion every 10 levels, until you reach level 200. The Breakthrough V event also awards additional items such as slot expansion coupons, Maple Point coupons, cubes, scrolls, and much more.

To give you some gear and help you level, we're also running the Play V Reward event that allows you to get Meso, Cubes, and even a 12 Star Absolab Weapon! All these rewards can be obtained both in Reboot and Non-Reboot worlds.

As far as permanent changes, the total cumulative EXP required to reach 200 has been reduced by about 30%. The larger changes to the EXP needed can be seen at higher levels, from about level 105, all the way to 200. At level 105, the amount of EXP needed to level up is reduced by about 10%. This reduction rate compared to the previous level curve quickly starts increasing until it is about 30% lower at level 200.

We want all of you to be able to get your 5th job and explore the new Arcane River area in December, so we’re making it even easier to reach that content.

In our last letter to you, we also told about some additional “A Better Maple” changes we’re bringing, and they will all be available to you on November 30th. Let’s go a little bit more into some of these changes to understand what they mean for you.

  • UI has been revamped with more customization
    • Lots of UI changes were made to make certain functions more convenient, apply a more streamlined and modern design, and allow you to display more quick slot buttons at the bottom of your screen.
  • Adjusting the restrictions for the Magnus boss fight
    • In the past, restrictions were placed on the Magnus boss fight to help mitigate abuse. However, these restrictions were placed a long time ago and need to be adjusted. So we are adjusting the party size and time to kill restrictions on the Magnus boss fight to be less restrictive than it was previously.

We’d love to hear your feedback about all these changes, so join us on the forums and let us know what you think!

Happy Mapling!
