MapleStory 14th Anniversary (Graphic: Business Wire)
From April 24 to June 12, events named after past major seasonal updates
such as Chaos, Nova, Ark and more will be available under the 14th
Street event. At the beginning of the event, players will receive
the 14th Street Fairgoer title and increase their reputation and stats
as they complete missions. Once all missions are complete, Maplers will
receive the 14th Street Celeb medal.
After a long wait, players will also be able to create a Pink Bean
character through June 12 by talking to Pink Bean outside the Chaos
Pink Bean Theatre. New skills for Pink Bean include Pink Bean’s Scooter,
which will help avoid damage while riding, and Twilight of Gods, which
allows Pink Bean to recreate statues that appear in the Temple of Time
to attack enemies around.
The update also brings the Pink Bean’s Movie Script, which gives
players a set of 30 missions to complete. When completed, the quest
rewards Maplers with the stat boosting Holy Pink Beanity title.
A special Big Bang Store will also open where players can use
their 14th Street Coins on unique items such as the Pivotal Adventure
Ring, the 14th Street Tour Bus Mount, and the Hall of Maple Warriors
