LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Off the heels of the recent Rise: Promise of the Guardian update, iconic MMORPG, MapleStory, is kicking off the second part of its massive summer update with Rise: Surge of Power. Beginning July 22, Maplers can participate in the Burning World event, and continue Rise events.
Through the Burning World event, players can create up to 3 Mega Burning characters. Until September 17, Maplers will receive a variety of perks for quick growth and rapidly increase a total of 3 levels every time they level up, up to level 150.
Players can also gain even more Rise Coins through new Rise Events, including:
- Eileen’s Support Event: Complete ‘Eileen’s Support’ quest to obtain ‘Eileen’s Support’ skill. The skill activates when hunting monsters near a player’s level. As players eliminate monsters to reach training goals, they will obtain a heap of Rise Coins.
