The V Update, as mentioned, introduces a fifth job to all classes, providing 41 brand-new skills for players to use. Players have to be level 200 and also need to finish the Temple of Time questline. If those requirements are met, a Memory Keeper NPC awaits to grant max-level players all-new power.

Those new skills will be put to the test as a new area will be introduced. The Arcane River continent will launch today with the Vanishing Journey area and a new questline for players. A second area, Chu Chu Island, will go live on December 28th with its own questline involving a child-like rock creature.

The V update also introduces a new V Matrix Skill System, which will let players direct how their characters grow. The V Matrix opens up alongside the Fifth Job unlock, granting players the ability to select the advanced skills they want to master, combine skills for greater power or make existing skills even more impactful.

Other enhancements include a smoothed leveling curve, new UI improvements, an expanded inventory, new questlines, and new in-game events.

MapleStory’s V Update will go live today at 2pm PST. A video showcasing the update’s features can be seen below, and patch notes for the update are online here.
