Hi Maplers,

These are the days and times that we'll be showcasing some of the upcoming content with our summer expansion on May 30th. These are all on Wednesday 1 PM PDT to keep it consistent.

Our May 15th showcase will be demonstrating the Awakened skills and abilities of all existing classes.

On May 22nd, we'll take the brand new Striker through some of the new challenges that you'll face as you become stronger.

Finally on May 29th, we'll get a look at the latest story arc of MapleStory 2 against the dangerously corrupted Terrun Callibre party.

Follow our official livestream channel for updates and notifications >> https://www.twitch.tv/playmaple2

Hope to see you there!

    There seems to be a little bit of conflicting information here, in the stream he said that the new drops aren't going to be tradable but some of them (the six boss specific ones) said "tradable" so are they going to be tradable like the other dungeon specific drops e.g. Varrekant's Wings or is none of this stuff going to be tradable?

    Could you link me to where I said the new boss accessories wouldn't be tradable? Unique level 60 Epic boss accessories will be tradable.

    With end-game gear being tradeable, we understand the concern that we are allowing players to pay to reach the end-game. However, we assure you that this will not be the case for the new end-game gear that we are planning to release this summer in our next major expansion update.

    But now multiple of the shown items said "tradable", not just the accessoires but in general:

    True, you guys never actually said that level 60 epics / legendaries are not going to be tradable, just that there won't be any ribbons and "end-game gear" would technically be referring to the new ascended stuff. This would also explain the "new players won't have a problem getting the entry requirements for the new content". Still this was anything but obvious and why still have this "can't transfer within account"? Do you want to encourage people to continue to not bother with properly gearing up their alts? Getting a perfect version of a weapon your alt could make good use of knowing that you can't give it to him is just cruel (same thing with your old gear).

    Ah, that's what you meant. I explained the moment it was brought up to not take the contents of the livestream verbatim because it's operated on a test server. When you receive those items on the live service, they will be bound immediately (you won't be able to sell them or move them to alt characters).

    So it's not just end game gear that won't be tradable and out of the non endgame gear some of it will and some of it won't be tradable. Good to know.

    It follows the same structure.

    Unique boss accessories will be tradable and exceptional pets that drop.
    Standard equipment drops will be bound on obtain.
    What's new with this update are epic pets that drop from raids. These cannot be sold to other characters but CAN be moved to your alts. They bind to the character that you decide to equip them on.
