1. Date of Release for ALL Big Bang Updates!

As most of the Maplers are aware, there will be 3 phases for Big Bang updates and are dying to know all the dates. We will be revealing all the release dates now!
To minimize hassles that Maplers might encountered during several client patching, only 2 client patch will be required instead of 3!

Big Bang 1 – The Beginning of Changes! (Game Client Patch on 18th May 2011)

Big Bang is all set to rock the MapleSEA world with its revolutionary changes.

Like the birth of a new star, this will be an update that changes almost everything!
There will be huge changes: maps, monsters, quests, skills, EXP equation, damage equation, job balancing, resolution, UI, EVERYTHING will be different!

Big Bang 2 – Rise of the Resistance! (Server Check / Update on 25th May 2011)

Rebel Army of Edelstein!
They are the rebellion against the Black Wings and they will free their town at all cost!
Edelstein is now the home of the Black Wings, a secret cult dedicated to the resurrection of the Black Mage.
They recently came out of hiding and took over Edelstein, oppressing the citizens of Edelstein into silence while working hard to resurrect their evil lord.

What will you see in this update?

New Classes!

Join the Resistance in their struggle for freedom!
Join as a Battle Mage or Wild Hunter, by far the most versatile character classes in MapleSEA which will bring an exciting new way to game play and challenge for players looking for their next heroic experience!

One who use his staff to beat back the Black Wings and will be the first into rush into danger, placing himself between his teammates and the forces of darkness!
The other is an expert markswoman, will race to the front line of battle on her loyal Jaguar and shoot down her enemies with deadly accuracy!

New Maps!

Discover Edelstein, the home of the Black Mage! Battle the Black Wings and help destroy the infamous cult that swore to resurrect him!

New Stories!

The Black Mage, the greatest evil in MapleSEA has returned! You must confront the Black Mage’s minions as you struggle to save the world in all new storyline!

Big Bang 3 – The New Reinforcement – Mechanics! (Game Client Patch on 6th July 2011)

Who are the Mechanics?

The final piece of the 3 new classes that will be featured in Big Bang.
The Mechanics are ordinary citizens of Edelstein who will answer the call for greatness.
Lacking the talent for magic of Battle Mages or the skill with crossbow and jaguar of the Wild Hunters, the Mechanics must draw on their ingenuity and use their gifts with technology to bolster the ranks of the Resistance!
They will join the Wild Hunters and the Battle Mages and free their home from the forces of darkness!

The Mechanic is a well-balanced class that offers fun and challenge for new players and experienced Maplers as well.
