MapleStory: Age of Artisans is Here

Tonight servers will be going down and when they come back up MapleStory will enter the Age of Artisans, which is the second of five updates that are part of the larger content update Chaos.

The Age of Artisans will bring with it a ton of new content including a new town Ardentmill, seven new professions, the new trait system and of course many new items and planned events.

Players level 30 or higher can now learn one of the new professions which include, harvesting, crafting, herbalism, mining, alchemy, smithing, and accessory crafting.  The new town of Ardentmill has trainers for all these professions.

The professions system gives players more ways to expand their character’s traits. Traits allow you to increase certain abilities of you characters, and can be leveled up. The traits are: Ambition, Empathy, Insight, Willpower, Diligence, and Charm. Players can view their traits in the Character Info menu or in the Production Skill menu if you are Lv.30 or above and each trait has 100 levels.

The update should take about 5 hours so servers will be back up early tomorrow morning for those of you who can’t wait.
