    Hi Deity, They changed the name from Automata to Xenon because it sounds cooler and futuristic. This reminds me of Intel Xenon Processor used in their Supercomputer.

    Ayumilove, people are wondering if Xenon (the guy with the whip) is the same as Automata. Please verify this and make more pictures, as knowledge is the best weapon in things like Maplestory.

    Hi Miikun, I will be adding picture once the official images are release for the skills. Too many images slow down the page load ^_^ “

    You need a better blog, Ayumi-chan. Like the one orangemushroom has, yours is just hard to read and WHY SO FEW PICTURES?! RAAAAAAAAAHHHH

    tl;dr blog needs more color and order

    Dragon Warrior and Jett were based off Pirates, from the name it could be a Mech with some sort of stealth system and speed.
