Black Mage Showdown Launches In MapleStory
MapleStory publisher Nexon has launched the final chapter of the war with the game’s long-awaited villain, the Black Mage which will see players worldwide band together to survive and strive for victory.
Players will be put to the test in the lead up to the final battle across two new areas, The Labyrinth of Suffering and Limina, both full of challenging foes bent on preventing the triumph of good over evil. To assist players, Nexon has bestowed a 5th job skill upon all classes which will aid in the trials ahead. However, only players at level 200 or higher who have also completed the 5th job advancement can enter the Labyrinth of Suffering and continue on their quest, so be sure to meet these requirements before the event closes or risk missing out.
There are also three new Defence Missions now available for MapleStory players to take on in this update:
- Flame Bird Support – Players can learn the Flame Bird’s Summon skill by talking to Helena. While the Flame Bird is summoned, defeated monsters will drop Flame Bird’s Determination
- Twilight Defense – This mission involves 2-4 characters joining forces to defeat enemies using cannons and protect the castle walls
- Battle at Sea – Players must defeat enemies within the time limit with ships and crew members
To help celebrate the launch of the Showdown Against the Black Mage, Player2 have 10 keys for MapleStory Pet Training Master Pet Packages to share with our readers, each of which contains the following items:

It was whilst toiling away in the bowels of the now mythical Australian Gamer forums that Stephen del Prados attempts at writing were recognised by then up-and-coming Matt ‘Hewso’ Hewson as “not terrible”. Since then Stephen has contributed to such sites as The Age’s now defunct Screen Play, the recently retired Black Panel and currently serves under Editor-in-Chief Hewso for Player2.net.au, at least until the pattern of decline obvious in his previous engagements is picked up by Hewso and he is exiled from games journalism forever
