Chaos (or Renaissance in JMS) is a large update which contains class revamps, Professions, a new area, and a new boss. Like Big Bang, the update comes in 3 patches.


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

MapleStory Age of Artisans

This patch introduces Professions. Only 2 can be chosen from the following: Herbalism, Mining, Smithing, Accessory Crafting, and Alchemy.

Part 3 : Age of Battle

MapleStory Age of Battle
Mob Cygnus

Future Cygnus

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

MapleStory 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

MapleStory 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.
