Spirit Weapons and Monster Comrade

I just woke up a little bit ago with my friend on XFire sending me a link to Nunnnuko’s Twitter Page. There’s some interesting stuff! Where to begin…?

 

 

Okay, so… Apparently there are these new weapons being implemented called “Spirit Weapons.” Those of you who have played Mabinogi probably know what this is. From the video, I believe you kill monsters and collect their spirit to charge your weapon (those little glowing orbs that you see). After your weapon is fully charged, you can press your basic attack key (I may be wrong, but that’s what I deduce from the video) and you summon a boss of some sort to attack with you. I may be describing it poorly, so here’s a video!

 

 

 

 

I’m already intrigued. Then, Nunnnuko links us to this other video that’s titled “Monsters Are Comrades?” This one is interesting. I’m not entirely sure how this works, since they don’t really show how the monsters are summoned, but it looks like you can summon monsters to help you attack. It looks similar to the Wild Hunter’s skill that lets you summon monsters, but the Wild Hunter’s skill doesn’t allow it to attack, while this new content allows your monster comrade to attack along with you. I’m not sure if their damage is based off of your damage range, though. Here’s a video if you’re still confused :

 

 

 

 

It’s some pretty interesting stuff. It is unknown if these features will be cash-based or not. It is also unknown if this means no Ultimate Adventurer next patch, despite what the previous patch’s extractions and implementation led us to believe. Also, you may have noticed that the videos show parts of MapleStory Chaos, but in fact, the Japanese version of MapleStory has not yet received the Chaos patches, so I suppose these videos show it may be coming sooner than any of us realized!

 

This patch will go live on June 29th.

    This is really great content and I can’t wait for it to hit GlobalMS.

      No where did it ever say it will hit global. Don’t just assume that GMS gets everything.

        If the GlobalMS community wants it, chances are we’ll get it at some point in the future.

    So now June 29 patch after all? I wouldn’t worry about JapanMS staying down for too long. Nexon Japan has a way of always bouncing back in content.

      They take far too long to do it. Justin was telling me that the entire Chaos patch is completed in the Data, but not activated (Even in this coming patch according to Silver Bullet or whoever it is that does the JMS extractions). I don’t get the point. Just give it to us!
