Ever since the arise of the Black Mage, the world has been thrown into greater chaos, thus Maplers must rise to become stronger through three different sequences.
Part 1 : Age of Heroes
- All classes were revamped.
Part 2 : Age of Artisans
Part 3 : Age of Battle
This patch introduces a PvP system which players can battle against each other. PvP consists of 3 (or 4 in some versions) modes:
Free-for-all: Defeat as many enemies as you can.
Team Battle: Score more points than the opposing team.
Ice Knight: One player becomes the Ice Knight and others have to defeat him within 7 minutes.
Capture the Flag: Capture the opposing team's flag 3 times.
This update also releases a new set of equipments, a new area, and a new boss, for Maplers over Level 160. However, the boss expedition is only for Maplers over Level 170.
Part 1 : Monster Familiar
This first part of the update contains Monster Familiar, a new function enabling Maplers to summon monsters which can help attack other monsters, Soul Weapons, a weapon allowing Maplers to summon Bosses, Gate to the Future, and skill changes.
Part 2 : Way of the Artisans
This part introduces Professions which is also featured in Chaos, but with Jewel Making and Blacksmithing merged, and the release of two new, JapanMS exclusive professions: Tamer and Huntsman.
- In KMS, the director of that time was Hanbyeol Oh (오한별, O Han-byeol) (2010 ~ 2011?).
- The patch names for MapleSEA used the fan translation of the Korean names, which are Return of the Heroes, Technological Age and Super Fight.
