Nexon America has announced that the second installment of MapleStory’s Big Bang update has gone live. Rise of the Resistance introduces the Wild Hunter and Battle Mage classes and the new town, Edelstein. Players are encouraged to join the Resistance as one of the new classes. The Resistance Class is a new collection of heroes that have banded together to thwart the dark deeds of the Black Wings, a secret cult dedicated to the resurrection of the vile Black Mage.
In addition to the new changes to MapleStory, players looking for some holiday cheer are now able to visit Happyville and participate in the annual Maple Christmas Tree Event. As an added bonus, on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day from 2 pm to 4 pm PST, a double experience and enemy item drop event will take place. With how easy the Big Bang update has already made it to level, along with double experience, it should make it incredibly easy for all players to gain multiple levels in the 2 hour period.
Lastly, the second Hot Time event will be taking place on Wed., Dec. 22, from 2:00 – 2:01 pm PST. Players logged in at this time will receive an SP Reset Scroll, a box from Cassandra with a random item, and a chance to win one of several prizes valued at 5,000 and 10,000 NX. Players are encouraged to log in early and participate in the 2X EXP and drop from 1:00 – 3:00 pm PST to ensure Hot Time participation.
