Players can pre-register now until July 17 in Phantom’s proposal Pre-Registration Event by tapping Phantom’s icon in-game to receive a special gift box with unique items including Unique Weapon Whetstone, Unique Armor Whetstone, Auto-Battle Charge Ticket and more.

Featuring a cane as his main weapon, the Phantom is a master thief who steals the abilities of characters in the Explorer class. Skills including Phantom Shroud, Return of Phantom and Steal help players plan more strategic strikes, while the Phantom’s most special skill – Judgment – comes into play when delivering critical damage to mobs, triggering randomly stacked cards that give players additional attack. Phantom characters between levels 3 to 100 will also be able to level up a total of 3 levels per each level up through the Mega Burning event.

This update also includes the implementation of a mobile-friendly Wedding System. Wedded in-games couples will be showered with rewards, including the Eternal Wedding Ring and a party buff when they party up together along with special gifts during anniversary milestones. Wedding guests can also join a special after party event to obtain special rewards.

Additionally, players can now express themselves via the newly added Emote Wheel and experience a higher Expedition Mode battling Chaos Horntail. Other features include the Rebirth Flame and Soul Weapon system, majorly upping the ante on gameplay and giving players more ways to deal damage and level up.

To celebrate, players can participate in exciting in-game events, including Maple Memory Leaf Gathering events, a special Achievement event to support Lucia for great rewards, a One Year Anniversary Special Attendance Event to obtain rewards such as a special Damage Skin and Boss Accessory Choice Boxes.

Monster Park, an amusement park themed event, will also open on July 25th where players can visit Safari Express, a high EXP hunting zone and rest in Sauna to build high EXP.
