Nexon has announced the second phase of the Skybound Expansion for MapleStory 2 is launching on January 10. The rollout includes a new chapter of epic quests, new dungeons, Chaos Raids, and seasonal events to kick off the New Year. As huge fans of the MMORPG, giving it a 9/10 score and calling it “a more than worthy sequel” in our review, we’re excited to explore all of the new content.
With the latest update, the Fortress Rumble Dungeon is introduced. Players who reach the “Trusted” reputation can enter 5 types of single-player dungeons. The new dungeon rewards include legendary weapons and armor, which can be obtained through rank rewards. I can imagine that Noisy Pixel’s Brian Lee will be spending hours and hours grinding away to get the best loot possible. Maybe he’ll be willing to trade with me… just maybe.
The update also brings the insanely challenging Wrath of Infernog Chaos Raid. Players can enter the raid when they earn the “Alliance Soldier” trophy and have reached at minimum level 50 with a 9,000 gear score. This raid is clearly only for elite players and those looking for a challenge. Players who complete this dungeon will have the opportunity to obtain Pluto’s accessory set: the very first legendary accessories in the game.
Additional updates include housing user interface adjustments, along with a variety of fun seasonal events to kickoff 2019 in style.
There are also events for players to explore that are happening between January 10 to January 31. Check out what they are and the requirements for each event:
- Infernog Expedition Support – Players level 10 and above can obtain Expedition Commemorative Coins based on cumulative login time.
- 2019 Lucky Pouch – Players level 10 and above can complete various quests to obtain a Lucky Pouch, and additionally can earn rewards by opening specific numbers of Lucky Pouches.
- Hide-and-Seek Hijinks – Players level 10 and above must complete 16 various quests based on the corresponding NPCs. Players who complete quests will obtain rewards. Players who became “Friend of the Day” and contributed to the quest condition check will get a buff.

Author’s Take: I wonder how many hours Brian has put into MapleStory 2? I’ve only scratched the surface with it, so I’ll definitely be needing his help to level up ASAP to enter the new raid.
