The Epic Showdown Against the Black Mage Begins Now in MapleStory

MapleStory, the iconic free-to-play global MMORPG from Nexon, has launched the final chapter of the war with the game’s long-awaited villain, the Black Mage. The most anticipated clash event in Maple history brings two brand new Tenebris areas, an epic duel against Black Mage’s leading Commander Verus Hilla, and the monumental battle against the Black Mage himself.

Players level 200 or higher who have completed the 5th job advancement can access the Labyrinth of Suffering, Tenebris’ second area. At the end of the quest, players will find Verus Hilla, one of the Black Mage’s leading Commanders, ready to fight. Limina,  Tenebris’ final area, is also available as players must help the Tenebris expedition escape dangerous situations inside to complete the Journey of Destiny.

In addition, every class will receive a new 5th job skill to fight the Black Mage and once the Maple Alliance gathers enough Determination to power up the Spark of Determination, all out war breaks loose as the highly anticipated Black Mage Boss Battle will become available. With the Black Mage’s HP being shared across all worlds, MapleStory players across the world must work together in this epic battle to finally defeat the Black Mage.
