- Stars have struck in several maps around the Maple World, including Minar Forest, Clocktower Bottom Floor, and Dead Mine!
- The monsters there have been transformed into stronger versions of themselves.
- A specific amount of enhancement stars on equipped items is required to effectively attack these monsters.

Part 2: Shining Star
- A new cross world area, Star Planet is added.
- Players can play a variety of mini-games such as Star Monsteropoly or Star Game of Yut to earn Star Points that improve their Star Grade.
- Players can earn Star Points to become a Shining Star!
- This is done so by becoming a Top 5 of any of the Star Planet game ranking leaderboards or if players are in the Top 100 of the Star Planet rankings.
- Star Grade is used to attain certain benefits for the player while they are in the Star Planet.
- Star Grade can be increased by earning Star Points from the mini-games.
Part 3: Black Heaven
- The first blockbuster in MapleStory, Black Heaven is added.
- Global Maplestory released only part 1 and 2 under the name "Shining Star". Black Heaven was released 2 patches after Shining Star (and came after Maplestory X Attack on Titan patch) as a seperate update.
- GMS implemented significant changes in the Star Force system, related to the maximum amount of Star Force for each item. The differences are listed here:
|Lv. 95 or lower: 5 stars (Superior equipment: 3)||Lv. 95 or lower: 5 stars (Superior equipment: 3)|
|Lv. 95 ~ 109: 8 stars (Superior equipment: 5)||Lv. 95 ~ 109: 8 stars (Superior equipment: 5)|
