Chaos Dungeons

Coming July 21st, something is happening in the deep places in Maple World. A dark power has possessed Zakum and Horntail, making them even deadlier than they were before. Chaos Zakum and Chaos Horntail are here -- are you ready for the challenge?

Chaos Zakum requires an expedition of at least six Maplers that are skilled and strong of at least level 100. Defeat this enraged monster and you'll have the chance at picking up a Chaos Zakum Helmet, Chaos Zakum's Tree Branch and some awesome scrolls!

Chaos Horntail needs at least six Maplers even stronger than those needed to fight Chaos Zakum. You must be at least level 110 to go on this expedition but if you can defeat Chaos Horntail you might be lucky enough to pick up a Chaos Horntail Necklace!

Chaos Zakum
• A more powerful version of Zakum is available to adventurers. This boss is available in channel 10.
• The dungeon is open to characters level 100 and up.
• Expeditions can be no less than 6 and no more than 30 characters.
• New loots!
• Entrance requirements are the same as normal Zakum.
• Chaos Zakum will drop Advanced Potential Scrolls and Advanced Equip Enhancement Scrolls.

Chaos Horntail
• A more powerful version of Horntail. This boss is available in channel 15. (Currently there is a known issue with the message at the entrance of Horntail stating the event is in channel 13. We will address this in the future.)
• The dungeon is open to characters level 110 and up.
• Expeditions can be no less than 6 and no more than 30 characters.
• Entrance requirements are the same as normal Horntail.
• Chaos Zakum will drop Advanced Potential Scrolls and Advanced Equip Enhancement Scrolls.
• A chaos version of the Horntail Necklace is available.

Potential and Enhancement Systems

Item Rank
• Items are now separated into ranks. Items with a white border are Normal, items with a blue border are Rare, items with a purple border are Epic and items with a yellow border are Unique. White items are the most common and unique items are the most rare and hard to get. But they have the best attributes.
• When an item drops from a monster they have a chance to be Normal, Rare, Epic or Unique. Items that are ranked rare or above will drop in an unidentified state.
• An unidentified item is shown with a red border. Using the magnifying glass on the item will reveal its potential. Items that are unidentified can be rare or better rank potential. There are restrictions to the magnifying glass depending on the level of the item.

Magnifying Glasses
• Basic - Can identify items that are level 30 and below
• Average - Can identify items that are level 70 and below
• Advanced - Can identify items that are level 120 and below
• Premium - Can identify all items

Item Potential
• Under this new system, some weapons now have hidden potential attributes that are randomly assigned. Normal items have their usual attributes but Rare or better items will randomly be given one to three hidden potential attributes. The higher the rank of the item the better the potential attribute will be.
• A Normal item’s potential attribute are not visible until a Potential Scroll is used on the item. Use a Potential Scroll on the item to make it “Unidentified” then use a Magnifying Glass to reveal the potential.
• Potential Scroll - Assigns a potential to a normal ranking item without using the upgrade count. Success rate 70%. Item is destroyed upon failure.
• Advanced Potential Scroll - Assigns a potential to a normal ranking item without using the upgrade count. Success rate 90%. Item is destroyed upon failure.
• Potential Scrolls can drop from monsters in the world or they can be found by using the Miracle Cube Cash Shop item. Each Miracle Cube used will yield one scroll fragment. Combine five to create a Potential Scroll and 10 to create an Advanced Potential Scroll.
• Using the Miracle Cube on an identified will reduce it to an unidentified state. Reusing a Magnifying Glass will reveal a new set of Potential traits.

Equipment Enhancement
• Apply an Equipment Enhancement Scroll or Advanced Equipment Enhancement Scroll. Each successful use will increase the item’s stats!
• The success rate of the scroll will decrease as the number of enhancements increases.
• Should the enhancement fail, the item will be destroyed. The number of yellow stars above an item’s name shows the number of successful enhancements the item has received. One star means the item now belongs to the Excellent Class and the item name will be in red in the description. Three stars mean Special Class and the item name will show in green.
• 1st enhancement: 100% success rate, 2nd enhancement: 90% success rate, etc

Follow System

MapleStory is about many things--adventure, excitement, fun, but most of all it's about friends! Friends are the lifeblood that makes MapleStory live and we're always looking for new ways for friends to help one another.

Coming on July 21st, the MapleStory Follow system is designed to make helping friends easier than ever before. The Follow system is simply a way to set your character to follow another around without your intervention. It's a great way for a friend to show you the best way to get to that secret hunting spot or how to get through that dungeon unscathed or just to take a nice walk through a Maple World spot of your choosing!

Here's how it works:
1. To start following another character, simply right-click on the person you'd like to follow around. A pop-up window will appear. Please note that the other character must be standing on a flat surface and be within 10 feet for the system to work. The Follow system will not work on characters that are on ladders or hanging from ropes.

2. Left-click 'Follow.'

3. The person you are trying to follow must accept your request. A pop-up window will appear on their screen asking if they'll allow you to follow them. They must click 'Yes.'

4. Your character will begin following the other character around. If you perform any action while in 'Follow' mode, the mode will be canceled and your character will stop moving. To start 'Follow' mode again, return to step 1.

Note 1: The Follow system may be canceled if players attempt to travel through certain portals.

Note 2: The Follow system may be disabled on certain maps.

But on topic, it seems like they're making it more like every MMO ever made. Item Identification, random attributes, dual-wielding, the "I'm too lazy to make more bosses so I'm going so slightly edit the sprite of the first one and give it +50 strength." trick.

Dual Bladers look kick ass though.
