MapleStory2 Homepage

MapleStory2 is a 3D game with a block-based world similar to MineCraft. Customization is a key feature, allowing you to change the visual design of your player and many game elements such as items. You will be able to create your own house, dungeons and more. The original MapleStory and MapleStory2 will be separate games, therefore your players and progress cannot be transferred over. Furthermore, Nexon will continue to maintain and run both at the same time, so you will not lose anything once MapleStory2 launches. MapleStory2 is being developed by Nsquare, the joint development studio formed by Nexon and NCsoft. MapleStory 2 will be released in Korea on July 7th 2015 at 7PM KST (10:00 UTC+0).

MapleStory2 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Can I play MapleStory2 with an unverified Account?
A: No, you can’t yet as with the required verification, you must ensure that you live in Korea so you will not be able to bypass that. You can purchase verified Accounts for $12 USD.

Q: How to get activated/verified accounts?
A: There is two way to get an Activated Nexon (KR) account needed to play Maplestory 2:
1. Having a Korean friend that could activate your Nexon (KR) Account using a Korean phone.
2. Purchasing an Activated Nexon (KR) Account on a site specialized in selling Korean Games Accounts.

Q: Do I need a VPN to play MapleStory2?
A: No, you don’t there is no risk at getting banned if you don’t use a VPN as long as you don’t share an account.

Q: How do I login/play into MapleStory2?
1. Visit MapleStory2 Nexon Homepage
2. Enter verified account credentials (e-mail and password). Click “LOG IN” (blue button).
3. The website redirects to a captcha page.
4. Re-enter verified account credentials with correct captcha. Click “LOG IN”.
4. Wait for browser to auto-refresh page in 5 seconds to return to MapleStory2 Nexon Homepage.
5. Click “Game Start” yellow button.
6. Wait 10~30 seconds for game to start.
Note: If you complete step 2 using an unverified account, you will not be redirected to a captcha page and receive a small pop-up window error message. If you installed MapleStory2 in a SSD (Solid State Drive), it will take less than 20 seconds for the game to boot/start whereas 20~40 seconds if installed in a HDD (Hard Disk)

Q: Why does the update take so long?
A: This is probably because you aren’t located in Korea. This means that your ping is high and the download speed low as-well as many are updating at the moment.

Q: Why am I stuck in Maple-Island?
A: This happened to me twice and is probably because of the high ping/Server Maintenance they made. Just restart the Game and everything should be fine.

Q: Why did my Level/EXP reset?
A: This is because of the Server Maintenance during the last hours. You have to do all again.

Q: I’m getting a dialog box when i start the game with verified account?
I bought a Korean account and I’m able to log in without any verification issues. However, I’m getting a strange dialogue box that is giving me some date and time table. Is the server down or is this some kind of limitation to the hours that I’m allowed to play?
A: It is now a maintenance. Should be done in an hour or so.

Q: How to spawn bosses?
A: If you go to the map, there are maps with the boss icon in them. put your mouse over the icon and it will tell you the channels that the bosses are alive in. If you tried to enter a channel with boss alive inside but being blocked, it means the channel is full. You have to wait for it to open again or try one of the higher numbered channels.

MapleStory2 Notes

Avoid buying user created cosmetics, especially if item use copyrighted material

TL;DR: Don’t buy things that violate the copyright rule.
In the Merit shop, the second tab (디자이너 샵) is user created cosmetics. I have looked through the market, and most (if not all) violate Nexon’s rule stating no copyrighted material or designs can be used on items. I know that BMO backpack looks awesome. But buying items that violate copyright rule is risky, since Nexon may not refund your Merits (because you just endorsed a copyright violation). So if you plan on spending Merit (which is basically cash), use it on Nexon’s shop, which is the first tab named “프리미엄 샵”.

  6. Raknahsa

    Hi there. I was wondering if its possible to help out with the English translation.

  7. km

  8. Guilty

    Hello there, i’m from brazil we had our server for MS1 but our server was closed long ago : /. I Still love MS and i wanna play MS2, do u know any trustworthy website which i can buy an korean verified account? thx so much (i used to see your videos since looooong ago xD).

  9. Ayumilove Post author

    @Player: I’m currently running on Windows 10 Pro 64bit and able to run MapleStory2 without any issues. Yeah, I created a guild called “Ayumilove”, but wasn’t active in MS2 right now since busy with work.

  10. Jouu

    @ayumilove Thanks for the reply! You really helped a lot thanks! :))

  11. Ayumilove Post author

    @Jouu: You do not share EXP in MapleStory2. You just need to hit the monster once to gain full EXP when the monster is defeated by anyone else. Currently upgrading skills does not require Crystal Fragments anymore (No need to use red/blue/green cyrstals). Just need to level up more to get sufficient Skill Points to add into your skill to unlock/level-it-up.

  12. Jouu

    Hi Ayumi thanks for the guide and everything! I’m enjoying my maple right now :)
    Btw I have some few question to ask you. How do I upgrade my skill using crystal fragment? I press K it show my skill list there is only + and – to up my skill.
    And another question I party with my friends exp doesn’t share. We are lvl 21 on 23 monster.

  13. Player

    @Ayumilove : I’ve re-installed my OS to Windows 7 64bit and it works fine now. Somehow MS2 was unable to launch Xigncode and Black cipher when It was on Windows 10 64bit. I’ve disabled and even at a stage removed all Antivirus but it still happens. Thanks for the help regardless.

    Do you have a guild in the game that’s AyumiLove? What’s the criteria to join? I’ve signed up for it but haven’t got accepted. :D

  14. Ayumilove Post author

    @Classic_steel: Download the English patch data file provided here, and then replace the one in MapleStory2. Then try the game again using the Korean data.
    Note: I assume that you did not perform any modifications to the Windows host file. If you did, please revert those changes to its default.

  15. Ayumilove Post author

    @Player: I noticed that you have posted the error “Winlicense (Address: 0x1f6b830)” on both MapleStory and MapleStory2 sections.
    1. Which game that you run causes this error to pop up? (example: MapleStory1 or MapleStory2)
    2. What is your computer specs? (example: CPU/RAM/GPU/HDD-SSD)
    3. What operating system are you currently running? (example: Windows 10 Home/Pro 32/64bit)
    4. When did you first notice this error? (Did the game previously run successfully login and in-game?)

  16. Ayumilove Post author

    1. Before you start game, switch to Korean data.
    2. Start game and wait for the window to pop up.
    3. Quickly uncheck the box that auto-starts game. Switch to English data.
    4. Then manually start game from the pop up window.
    Note: If it does not show in English ingame, exit the game, extract the data from the zip and perform the steps 1 to 4 again.
    Note-2: If you see Xml.m2d.en and Xml.m2h.en means its currently set as English data disabled)
    Note-3: If you see and means its currently set as Korean data disabled)

  40. Joe

    Nevermind! It worked! I just had to keep trying by re-extracting English patch xml files over until it finally worked! Sorry and thank you!

  41. Joe

    Hi everyone and hi Ayumi! I am having a problem with the English patch.

    It worked the first time, but every time I log in and run MS2, the client would start downloading the correct xml files over the English patch.

    Is anyone having the same problem or is there a way I could possibly fix it?

    I also tried to re-extract the xml files+switch into C:NexonMapleStory2Data but the client will patch over again. Thanks

  42. David

    Thanks for replying, as you have asked there is nothing in the process tab for the application of MapleStory2 when I try to start the game. This is the first time trying as I have not played it before and also the question regarding my computer specifications it should be more than capable of running the game. As the features are, i7 – 2600 CPU @ 3.40ghz, 16GB RAM, NVIDIA GTX 960. Plus the addition of trying to start the game on multiple web browsers such as Chrome, IE and Firefox.
    Thanks again.

  43. Ayumilove Post author

    @David: Hi, could you try opening the Task Manager window (right-click taskbar where the Start menu is lcoated, select “Start Task Manager”). Could you see any MapleStory2 application running in the background? Also, what is your computer specification? (CPU~Processor/GPU~graphic card/RAM~memory/Disk Space) This is to identify whether you computer is capable of running MapleStory2. Were you able to run it once successfully or is this your first time running the game?

  44. David

    Hey Ayumilove, I’m having trouble with launching the game where the game just never appears after the hackshield window. Would you happen to know a solution? Thanks.

  45. Fripnucks

    Hi Ayumi, thanks for the review videos and the hard work. Can you please make a thread to rank classes that deal the most DPS to the least? Both in PvE and PvP. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just to give a rough idea for new players before making a character, thanks in advance.

  46. IzIz

    when I use a Korean phone number it always has an error, why?!! just why?!

  47. PeachStab

    The link for the official client download gives me a pop window asking if I want to allow the new window to auto close, if I click no, it still closes, and then link does nothing. Help?

  48. Ayumilove Post author

    @NewPlayer: You’re most welcome. Do take note that the English patch isn’t perfect. Mails/Items that exist in latest patch may not be listed in the inventory when you’re on English patch, but it will be there when switched to Korean patch.

  49. NewPlayer

    @Ayumilove Thank you for uploading the new English patch. I have been waiting weeks to play this game in English

  50. Ayumilove Post author

    @AgamenonxD: There aren’t any new English patch. However, I have tested with the available patch above, and it still works with MapleStory2.

  51. AgamenonxD

    So… no more patch :( ?

  52. Oreo

    Hello. Quite curious if you will be making a Golden Chest Location guide? I’m an avid fan of doing things for achievements and getting the Golden Chests for every location is one of the things I hope to complete. :-)

  53. Ayumilove Post author

    @Jonas: I have used WTFast before for MapleStory and it does reduces the lag and speed up response time quite a bit. I’m not sure if it applies for MapleStory 2 since when I game on it, it’s pretty sufficient to not require WTFast. You could try it to check whether it helps with your FPS/lag. Hope that helps. :)

  54. Jonas

    Is it safe to use WTFast to reduce ping on Maplestory 2?

  55. AgamenonxD

    @Ayumilove i send u mail to u, can u ask me plz?

  56. NewPlayer

    Maybe weeks for english patch, been playing commando or without english patch on maplestory 2. It seems like there is a lot of content to translate.

  57. SnowBlues

    Anyone know when the English Patch will be here?

  58. shana2906

    I was wondering if grinding is still the best training in this game. I recently got back in and am doing quests and I’m stuck on one of them. It’s called “The New Bait” (Level 33) given by Growler (the cat guy). If you could help, that’d be great!

    Would like mind start a new post to teach us how to make English patch?

  71. Ayumilove Post author

    @raindash: Personally for me I do not use any Korean VPN since my account is not shared with others. If the game account that was sold was used before (meaning it contains game characters of MapleStory2, or perhaps the player deleted all his character account and tries to sell it) then it is possible the system detects could detect it is login by a foreign user from different IP address. If you feel safer to use Korean VPN, you can use it to safeguard your account at a cost though. I’m not sure whether Korean VPN requires monthly fee.

  72. rainadash

    I bought account but in the email it said “you’d better use kr vpn to connect”. You said it is not needed unless sharing an account. Is this considered sharing an account or should i ignore the message?

  73. Ayumilove Post author

    @bun: Try deleting both the kr/en existing data file and re-extract it out from the zip file (2017-02-19). I have tested today and the English translation patch is working fine.

  74. bun

    @Ayumilove it’s not working ): still in korean.

  99. Ayumilove Post author

    @Hangul: When you first time surfed/visited the MapleStory2 Nexon game/landing page, there will be a mini pop-up that request you to install the Nexon Game Manager. Do that and you will get the similar one as shown in the video. If you chose to ignore it, then I’m not sure what else I can help with.

  100. Ayumilove Post author

    @Soujirou: You will need a Paypal account or Visa Credit Card to get a verified game account. Google Search is your friend :)

  101. Ayumilove Post author

    @Conjuring: From my experiences playing KMS2 for over 2 years, I have not got banned for not using Korean VPN. Do take note that if you playing KMS2 in different areas (e.g. you play in USA, then after few months later, you play in a different area like Canada/Asia, the system will detect something amiss and will request you to re-authenticate again. ) The re-authentication also occurs if you have not logged into the game for more than 3~6 months. It’s up to you though if you feel that it provides you more security or perhaps it could lower the ping/latency, then I highly recommend you to use the VPN method.

  102. Conjuring

    Hi ayumi,

    are you sure that we wont get banned w/o using a KR Vpn ? i’ve read forums saying that people are getting banned for not using a VPN.

  103. Soujirou new here though i really want to play maplestory 2 badly, back then its in korean so i gave up and just wait for and english server to be released. but when i read about the english patch last night i downloaded the game and the problem now is a verified account..anybody kind enough to help me register? or atleast lend me an account so i can play? please..mail me if you want to help me thanks. [email protected]

  104. Hangul

  110. Ayumilove Post author

    @Cairn: Thanks for the guide on obtaining the +12 miracle weapon!

  111. Cairn

    You need to collect three different colour stones from the event.

    Blue stone – log into the game and then go to the event page check in for ten days to get the golden box for the blue stone. The golden box also gives you an enchantment protect scroll and small chance to get +12 enchantment scroll as well.

    Green stone – Get the daily quest from the event NPC. Completed a level 50 dungeon to get a fragment stone. You need ten of it.

    Yellow stone – Level up your livestock processing and ore processing to level 4.

    Event page

  112. Ayumilove Post author

    @bun: Sorry, I’m not sure how. I play MapleStory2 less often than I used to be as I will be focusing on other priorities.

  113. bun

    @ayumi , how do we do the event quest that give +12 miracle weapon, event quest taken in queenstown

  114. Cairn

    @NiDOT, you can try this.

    1. Copy the whole MapleStory2 folder into any storage devices such as thumb drive.
    2. Ask your friend to download the Nexon game manager from the official Maple Story 2 website.
    3. Install Nexon game manager and open it.
    4. After you open it, it will automatically start downloading the game.
    5. Once you saw some progress let’s say 1% downloading complete, you stop and close it. You don’t have to download the whole game.
    6. Now copy and overwrite the whole MapleStory2 folder from your storage devices.
    7. Start the game and play.

  115. NiDOT

    ty ayumi i want to ask again , how to copy my ms2 to my friend’s computer. can you give me tutorial for that.

  116. Ayumilove Post author

    @NiDOT: If the update does not show any data being downloaded KB/MB (kilobytes/megabytes), it means the download is stuck and will not proceed with update. Remove any English patch files, and try updating the game. Once the game is fully Korean patched, then only use the English patch. The game requires at least 200~500Kb/s to play the game smoothly with very few players in map. Large towns may require more than 500Kb/s to load all data from other players.

  117. NiDOT

    my update is taking time so long , can some one help me?

  118. Cairn

    Thank you! I really appreciate your hard work! /hug

  132. bun

    english patch not working on this new patch

  133. Eden

    I don’t think there will be a new server on Dec 15, at least they never mention about it.
    However, some new feature might be implemented, new method for enchantment, new skill point allocation, etc. I really like the climbing on test server which don’t have to press any key and also flying doesn’t consume EP anymore.

    And I heard there will be an event on Dec 15 given out +12 weapon(permanent)!!!

  134. Ayumilove Post author

    @bun: I’m not sure about the MapleStory2 Restart. They mentioned MS2 Restart will be having something on Dec 15, 2016.

  135. bun

    hey @ayumilove, will we get another new server on ms2 restart day?

  136. Ayumilove Post author

    @Banky: Download Nexon Game Manager and install it.

  137. Banky

    then what i should do redownload game or download just nexon game manager?

  138. Ayumilove Post author

    @Banky: Probably that you did not install the “Nexon Game Manager”. The MapleStory2 website will prompt you to install it for conveniences unless you ignored it, it won’t ask you to install it.

  139. Banky

    Excuse me. Why when I’m log in and click “start game” there’s no game manager windows and I couldn’t change the language in to Eng. Isn’t because game manager?

  140. Ayumilove Post author

    @Nahar: Press F5 to refresh the explorer. If it still remains the same, then delete those files and re-extract the files from zip that you have downloaded.

    Thanks for your help, I really appreciate it!

  143. Ayumilove Post author

    @AngelicEyes: Download and install 7zip, and use this software to extract the files out. I have re-tested today and the files are able to be extracted/decompress fine.

  144. Bun

    @yolo i found it already, thanks

  145. Bun

    @yolo, i mean the damage meter, so i know who did the highest damage in dungeon or boss fight.

  146. Yolo


    Setting>Battle Information> Tick the first 4
    Press ESC > Second Button > Fourth Button > Tick first 4

  147. Yolo


    Well, u miss out something, there are 1 more 1,500 merit bonus…
    U just need to go to the event webpage, scroll down until u saw a RESTART, then u just need to click the word below the ‘RESTART’ to register yourself, then you will entitled for 1,500 and other etc.
    Hope this will help you

  148. Yolo


    You are right, just simple as that. i’ve done everything there and move back to the original server

  149. bun

    guys, how do we open Damage meter? or dmg chart. i want to see my damage while fighting boss

  150. AngelicEyes

    Hiya, how can i get the Xml m2d file? when i get it from the zip file through google drive i get an error while decompressing it. /

    thnx for your help.

  151. Eden

    I also came here looking for more details regarding the RESET event.
    From what I’ve gathered, there are four things you need to be completed in order to receive 11,300 merit from the event.

    1) Main story quest – 10,000 merits
    Redo the whole main quest until you finished [에픽]불안이 지배하는 세상 which is LV50(?) quest I assume? I’m at LV35 at the moment.

    2)Party matching – 300 merits
    Completed a LV50 dungeon via the new party matching.

    3)Gathering/Production – 500 merits
    Not sure what needs to achieve in order to get the merit.

    4)World map exploration – 500 merits
    You need at least 300 points to get the reward. Each map has its own exploration quest now, such as using the telescope gains you 1 point.

    I still need clarification from someone who actually can read Korean and has already finished the event missions.

  152. AngelicEyes

    @ AyumiLove,

    Forget my previous problem. Lets go to the real problem now :). I’m getting a (31) error code after the install manager is trying to start the game.

    I need you Godly Skills <3

  153. AngelicEyes

    @ Ayumi I’m stuck at the Game Manager the % stays on 0. after a few seconds I can see the total size of the game. but it does not go up, after waiting for anything to come back, I just click on the cancel button-> after clicking I’m getting this error code ( [ ERROR CODE = -60 ] Koreans sentence (43215517)
    below the numbers is another sentence written in blue

    at the bottem a Ok button to close

    is there something that I’m missing did anyone have this problem be4?

    I Can’t wait to join everyone in the maple paradise. :)

  156. waaika

    @ayumilove ayumi can u guide me a <reset event for 11300 merit ?

  157. bun

  158. Yolo

    Thx ayumi for the english patch
    but do you know that now maplestory 2 got another test server with totally different platform of maplestory 2. Everyone in the game, now playing the test server because merit will be given.

  159. waaika

    @ayumilove yep this windows is locale korea. but i still start game this pop-up is show anytime.

  160. bun

    everytime we go in ms2 we need to load up the english patch?

  161. Ayumilove Post author

    @waiika: Does your Windows Operating System has Korean language installed? If Windows doesn’t have it, then it will not show the Korean words in that pop-up box.

  162. waaika

    You know this ayumi?

    Hey ayumi, do you have the latest boss spawn timetable, because karkar island boss are missing from this link

  166. Ayumilove Post author

    @Simon: If the game account was logon with a very different IP address (e.g. Canada IP, then switched to US IP), then it’s possible that KMS2 request you to re-verify. Was your account logon by someone else from different country? The other one is if the game account was not login into that account for a long time, it will also require you to re-verify the account.

  167. Simon

    Hey ayumi, i was curious, yesterday i was unable to trade or drop items and once i verified with my email it allowed me to trade and drop again. Then today while i was playing my account went into protection mode and says i need to reverify again… this time its with a korean phone number…. not just email.. is there something i can do? I had this account since april… was working fine till now is there something i can do and something i can do to avoid this happening in the future?

  168. WenSheng Deng

    I found out my mistake. I tot I followed exactly what you did. It was my part that I messed up. Thank you so much for the patch and the help! :D

  169. Ayumilove Post author

    @WenSheng: Kindly send me a video recording of the steps you have done to login into the game using the English patch to my email at irisheartcpu (at) gmail (dot) com and so I could determine which part that you may have missed or perhaps it could be error on my side with the guide which I can correct.

  170. Yolo

    Thx ayumi

  171. Ayumilove Post author

    @WenSheng: The English patch you have in your computer has been overwritten by the KMS2 server or you have not manually switched to the English version. Delete those m2d and m2h. Replace with the ones from the zip file. Switch to Korean data first before start game via Internet Browser. Kindly read the readme.txt guide as provided in the zip file for the details and watch the video for an overview of how its done. It’s not a plug and play as it needs user intervention.

  172. PocketPicker

    Thank you =)

    I’m curious though as to how the translation is done. it would be really sweet to have a guide or some tips on how to do it manually ourselves in-case we end up waiting over a week for a patch.

  203. Ayumilove Post author

    @Josh: Hi, if you open up the minimap, you can find the yellow/golden question mark. This will help give you some hint such as you will need to travel to that map to continue on the quest. If you were to press “TAB” keyboard button to open the minimap, do you find any yellow blinking circle? This will tell you that you will need to either eliminate those enemies in that area or to collect items. What job is your character on? I wonder if its a specific quest for a particular job.

  204. Ayumilove Post author

    @Yolo: Oh, whats your IGN (in-game name) in MapleStory2?

  205. Yolo

    Thx Ayumi for the info, btw saw you in the game =)

  206. Ayumilove Post author

    @Yolo: I don’t think you will need VPN if you are playing in one area. If you do switch often, VPN would be useful as it will not require you to re-verify when your account is accessed from different location.

  207. Yolo

    Without using the VPN, is there any chance my account will need to re-verify?
    Is there any chances knx will ask us to re-verify our account if we dont use VPN?

  208. Josh

    This is kinda related to the English patch. One of the quests I’m on doesn’t explain the step correctly and I don’t understand what i should be doing or looking for. I’ve spent over 2 hours walking around this map trying to find what i believe is meant to be a door but i don’t know and i cant find one. The quest is [Epic] A ray of hope “Make the legend” the step deception is: Journeys into door h. Stowe 69 vols.Go to the area shown in the Stowe Nikon’s heart Search(0/1) Any help would be great :)

  209. Ayumilove Post author

    @XiaoDoDo: Ensure that both Korean and English files are not the same size. If they are, it means the English patch has been overridden by the server with Korean language. You will need to replace that English patch by re-extracting the files out from the zip file that is provided in download link.

  210. XiaoDoDo

    Hi Ayumi, but it’s seem like not working on my PC, the game still in korea language, just paste the file which name ”switch”, ””, ”” into Data folder from Maple Story 2 right? and I did press the ”switch” file before click to start the game, I did make sure the file is in ”kr” at the back :(

    I have received your screenshots from your e-mail. It seems that the English patch did not cover those items. Will need to wait for the new English patch to solve those issues.

  219. Ayumilove Post author

    @XiaoDoDo: KMS2 has recently released a new mini update/patch, that may cause the English translation to not work for new items (may not make item visible in inventory/etc). Will need to wait for new English patch to solve these issues.

  220. XiaoDoDo

    hi ayumi, may I ask is it not able to play as english now? :(

    however, there are no Striker skills. T^T could you please update the striker skills?

  233. Ayumilove Post author

    @Krawlin: Korea MapleStory2 has updated some of the files, therefore English patch will not work with the latest update. The English patch will take awhile to be updated to translate the new update patch from KMS2. In the meantime, you can use the original Korean data as provided in the zip file to continue playing the game!

  234. ShoukoChan

    @ayumilove i appreciate it! i wish that i can send you the video how the bug look like ><. by the way. good job! keep it up ~!

    Hi Aiyumi ~ . just want to let you know that the kms2 english patch that i’m using now got some bug. some of my item is gone until i change to Korean version . and my item is bugging too. can you please update the english patch ver please ~ thank you so much!

    Already excess more than 8gb hard disk space I installed T_T

    @RokuRonin: Currently, there are no news about MapleStory 2 reaching MapleSEA nor Global MapleStory this year.

    I think it would be similar to how MapleStory 1 is launched.
    MapleStory 1 is first released in Korea (KMS) on April 29th 2003.
    MapleStory 1 reaches North America (GMS) on May 11th 2005.
    MapleStory 1 reaches South East Asia (MapleSEA) on June 23rd 2005.

    Looking at the past history of release date, I estimated that MapleStory 2 will reach other continents which are North America, South East Asia, Europe and Japan in 2 years time:
    MapleStory 2 is first released in Korea on July 7th 2015.
    MapleStory 2 reaches North America (GMS) on August 18th 2017.
    MapleStory 2 reaches South East Asia (MapleSEA) on September 30th 2017.

  251. RokuRonin

    Do you have any info whether it will be out on SEA?

    kids 16 and under are not allowed to play between midnight and 6am korea time.
    if your account was verified by a minor’s identity, you wont be able to play during this time period until they turn 17.

    @Qs: You will need a verified Nexon Korean account to play any games in Korea Nexon Homepage. To play MapleStory2, follow the instructions as mentioned above.

    @Mr Lau: Currently I do not have the latest MSEA with me. Perhaps you can ask one of your friends who is playing MapleSEA to share his file via pen drive / flash drive. :)

    @ThatGuy: Probably they will but there are no indicators mentioning it will be released for NA as GMS2 within this year. Currently KMS is delivering new patches daily every 6-8am KST (Korean Time). I wonder if GMS has the take to perform that too.

    Hey, Ayumi. I just did a quick skim of this post, so you may have already touched on this before. Do you have any idea or information as to when MS2 will be released for NA players?

    @X9sasuke9Xi: Thanks for your grammatical checking! I have updated the word. Will be adding in more useful information as time goes :)

    Couldn’t help but notice a small grammatical error. Your reply to “Do I need a VPN to play Maplestory 2?” should say” don’t share an account”. Overall, your guides are really helpful. Keep up the good work.
