Ursus the Mighty is a massive beast and the first ever raid boss in MapleStory.
Masarayu was a man who had everything, his fortunes matched those of Gold Richie, and he had nothing to fear. Then one day, he heard about Ursus, a beast who displayed the very power and anger of nature itself. Ursus cared not for wealth nor riches, and his sheer power made Masarayu dub him "The Mighty". A bounty was put on Ursus's head, and now heroes and adventurers line up to fight him in droves.
Ursus is the first ever raid boss in Maplestory, and this means that his fight isn't anything like what you've experienced before.

- Ursus has an individual ranking system for each player. In increasing order, you can earn E, D, C, B, A, S, SS, and SSS ranks upon the end of the fight. Your rank is based on a number of factors including damage dealt, revives, time taken, deaths etc.... Higher ranks come with higher rewards.
