Dual Blade is doubling the fun in MapleStory!

NEXON Europe today releases a brand new Job Class for its Fantasy MMO and celebrates the arrival of the two-handed ninja with plenty of events

What’s better than playing a sneaky ninja wielding a deadly blade in an online game? As a matter of fact: it’s playing a fearsome ninja wielding two deadly blades bashing through hordes of monsters! For players of NEXON’s premier Fantasy MMO, MapleStory, this one has finally come true: Dual Blade is the next Job Class added to the already impressive selection of playable heroes. Furthermore, NEXON Europe reveals a vast amount of new related content and events that are available right away.

Master of the Blades

Spreading out from“Secret Garden”– headquarter to the mysterious organization of the Dual Blades– agents of great power and skill are seeking the Dark Lord’s whereabouts in all Maple World to finally follow their masters' order to take revenge. These agents are now available for players to conquer their beloved realm! Dual Blade, the brand new adventurer class in MapleStory, is a very versatile and mobile character that comes with a lot of devastating Special Moves enabling players to deal out significant melee damage to huge mobs and single targets alike. As one of the most feared assassins of Maple World, Dual Blades are famous for rushing in, drawing their blades and sweeping whatever remains from their foes.

Follow the path of the Ninja

To introduce this new, devastating Job Class, NEXON Europe is about to host several events flanking the release: first off, any party containing at least one Dual Blade is rewarded with bonus EXP for playing party quests. Furthermore, some“Dual Blade Secret Reports” are spread throughout Maple World. Players obtaining these reports while hunting monsters will receive rewards from NPC Cassandra. On top of all this, players deciding to follow the path of the Dual Blade in person will get some nice benefits such as receiving an everyday buff that enhances EXP and drop rates as well as a level-up reward, granting access to special masks and scrolls for this class every ten level (20 to 100). The time to unleash the powers of the Ninja on Maple World has finally arrived! And it was never more worth treading this path!

A dedicated website on the new Job Class and the flanking events can be reached here.
