Another major highlight is the Hyper Burning+ system, which allows players to accelerate their leveling process dramatically. 

Starting 29 May, the Tera Blink – where newly-created characters after Level 10 gain two extra levels for every level up until Level 200 –  combined with Hyper Burning+ systems will enable players to quickly reach up to Level 260. The initiative includes an updated tutorial and special hunting missions to facilitate rapid progression effortlessly through early levels, accompanied by Spiegelmann’s Growth Guide, which offers exciting content missions to further boost player development.

On 10 July, MapleStorySEA will introduce new 6th Job Skills, adding two new skills per class to expand combat capabilities and promote significant growth in character development.

  • 6th Job Mastery Skills: Each class will receive a second Mastery skill to further enhance their combat prowess.
