Explorer Nation

Explorers of all classes will soon be able to experience a new type of game with Nexon America’s Return of the Explorer rebalancing update for its hit MMORPG, MapleStory. The four original Explorers - Mage, Thief, Bowman, and Warrior, along with the later added Pirate class - will all be rebalanced and renewed in the scheduled June update.

Each class advances through four jobs and each is enhanced and improved with the Return of the Explorer update. Mages, who use staffs and wands as their main weapons, gain an increase in attack skills and damage. As masters of moving quickly, Thieves earn an increase in attack and a decrease in cool down time. Bowmen become more powerful and see an increase in damage power. Warriors also gain an increase in damage power, as well as a few other changes which allow them to improve their elemental attacks. Lastly, Pirates undergo several changes, including the ability to use their guns at close range.

The Return of the Explorer update implements new changes to each of the five explorer classes to enhance the player’s experience. To learn more about the upcoming improvements, visit: http://maplestory.nexon.net. Join other fans at www.facebook.com/maplestory.
