    @all: The following items has been updated:

    1. Added Hyper Skills for MapleStory M Corsair.

  2. Mateusz

    @Ayumilove

    It’s not useful at all, it doesn’t do anything. I’ve tried using it everywhere and on everything, from bosses to normal mobs and it doesn’t do anything.

  3. Dylan

    Can you also introduce the names of the pirates? E.g Valerie = [photo]

    Thanks

  4. Ayumilove Post author

    @Mateusz: Currently it’s not so useful right now as the Daily Dungeon and Elite Dungeons requires players to clear all the mobs first before facing the final battle with the boss alone.
