MapleStory2 is a sequel to the original game that we have waited for a long time. Back when it was launched, there were several server-related problems, but most of them were quickly resolved, so let’s take a look at the impression the game leaves when you play it.
Level Up without Story Quests
The first thing you notice is that you now earn SP and AP via trophies and note once you finish a quest. This is important as those that do not want to follow the story can also progress and upgrade their skills for the endgame. It works a bit different with those that focus on story quests as they are welcome to perfect their abilities via these side trophies.
While we are on the topic of upgrading, you can level up quite quickly. In fact, you can reach the maximum level in no more than two days. Perhaps the developers will add some extra leveling options, but at this moment reaching level 50 seems like an easy task. When it comes to dungeon rewards, there are certain limits and the drop rates are not set that high. In fact, it takes several hours to finish ten dungeons, but you probably won’t get a single epic drop. If there is anything good about the dungeons it’s that when you die, you will be revived fairly close to your place of death, so you don’t lose too much progress.
Choose Your Home and Decorate It
When you exit the dungeons, you realize that you can adjust your own apparel, which is extremely fun. In fact, you can create items and sell them in the shop to earn merits. You can also create your own weapons, but it seems like you have fewer options there. The firearms that you can find while playing seem more powerful and prettier than the ones a player can create. Players can also design their homes and work on taming pets. This is cute as you can choose a theme for your home, so if it is Christmas, why not have holiday-themed premises?
The graphics of MapleStory 2 are interesting and the sound contributes to the atmosphere well. Everything seems incredibly fun and there are areas where you can get truly creative. Exploring dungeons is fun and boss mechanics are intriguing. The fact that you can fish or tame pets also adds to the depth of the game.
