9th Anniversary Events – Check ’em Out!


Happy birthday MapleStory! You’re getting old now, but that doesn’t mean you still can’t have fun. Check out all the events below!

April 30 to June 10

How time flies – MapleStory is turning nine years old! Help us celebrate this momentous occasion by taking part in these fun events:

Bursting Word Bubbles

During the event period, head to the 9th Anniversary Event Map and fight the monster that guards it. Defeat the monster and you’ll advance to the next round, where you’ll face more and more fearsome creatures. Once you reach Round 5, you’ll come face to face with Dong-Dong-Chi-Ang. Send him packing and the Balloon Reactor will burst open and rain down sweet rewards.

 

Monsteropoly!

Join two other players in a Maple-themed board game. Roll the dice to advance your piece and purchase monsters from the spaces you land on. When other players land on spaces you control, you’ll earn points. Whoever earns the most points wins and will be rewarded with 9th Anniversary Coins.

 

9th Anniversary Rally

Move from map to map and crush monsters before time runs out! Defeat as many monsters as possible for maximum EXP rewards. Talk to the Rally NPC to begin.

 

Maple Leaves Keep Falling On My Head

Travel to the event map and gather falling Maple Leaves within the time limit to win 9th Anniversary Coins. But watch out for snail shells and rocks – these pesky obstacles will slow down your collecting speed.

 

Endurance Road

Do you have what it takes to endure the Anniversary’s toughest challenge? Complete the jump quest and you’ll be rewarded with a Secret Box, which could contain 9th Anniversary Coins, trait items, a Random Transform Potion or the brand-new Neptune Chair.

 

9th Anniversary Party Prep

Help NPCs Cassandra and Inkie prepare for the big Anniversary Party. Plant a Maple Tree Seedling in the 9th Anniversary Maple Park and protect it from nearby monsters, or just decorate the park and have fun. Lend a helping hand and you’ll be handsomely rewarded.

 

9-Year-Old Maple Tree

Visit the 9th Anniversary Maple Park on the hour between 4 PM and 8 PM (PDT). After one minute, you’ll receive a Maple Tree buff that increases Attack and Magic Attack. Stay for another five minutes and click the Maple Tree to grab 9th Anniversary Coins and a special Gift Box.

 

Maple Leaf Just For You

Hunt monsters within your level range to earn Maple Tree Seedlings. Collect 50 Seedlings and you will be rewarded with a Maple Leaf, which can be turned in for 9th Anniversary Coins.

 

Levitating Admin

NPC Maple Admin wants to get in on the party too! Maple Admin’s giant balloon will appear in towns and fields to drop a Developer Letter and a gift box full of rewards, like the brand new Uranus Chair!

 

9th Anniversary Attendance Check

Hunt 200 monsters within your level range and you’ll receive an Attendance Stamp. Receive better rewards for each cumulative day. Stamps earn you items such as potential scrolls, a 9th Anniversary Pendant, a Double Orange Mushroom Mount, or the brand-new Venus Chair. The rewards get better each day, so be sure to check in throughout the Anniversary celebration.

 

9th Anniversary Achievements

MapleStory’s 9th Anniversary isn’t all games and prizes; there are achievements to be had as well! Unlock achievements by completing a variety of tasks, including winning Monsteropoly 10 times, getting the Maple Tree buff 10 times, and collecting 10 Attendance Stamps. Receive titles, a 9 Year Maple Master medal or a brand new Earth Chair just by participating in the fun.

 

9th Anniversary Coin Shop

Collect 9th Anniversary Coins, then visit NPC Inkwell’s shop in the Event Hall to peruse his wares. Trade in your coins for 9th Anniversary scrolls and equips.
