Hey Folks

bit of an internal guild discussion is sparking a bit of debate so thought I'd ask the questions here, Rune Blader is it one of the classes we get at launch or is it released afterwards? or do we simply not know yet?

Thanks Heaps!

    No one officially knows. But Rune Blader wasn't a class that was there when game was released it came with an update, most likely no, I hope so though...

    Most likely no. But I'd say the odds of it coming out within the first 6 months are relatively high.

    Apparently we're getting the update post - Restart which is after all 3 classes were added. <---- This is rumors.
    Whether they choose to have all those classes is a different story. They might just only keep what the update gave.

    Some people are saying that it will be released afterwards which is a little disappointing cause Rune Blader looks really cool!!!!

    No one knows for sure, but I think it's decently likely since the Chinese server of Maplestory 2 did launch with Rune Blader. We won't know for certain till at least a bit closer to Open Beta (if that happens) or Launch, but let's hope it will!

    There is an official announcement out now that the answer is no.

    They'll be saving it for marketing, ensuring a new injection of players somewhere down the road.

    Nothing brings in new players like launching a new class.

    The specific quote which you are referring to is "The following classes will be available during the MapleStory 2 Closed Beta: Archer, Wizard, Knight, Thief, Priest, Heavy Gunner, Assassin and Berserker." . Yes, in the Closed Beta that means no, but not for launch. I don't think it's super likely, but they didn't close out whether or not RB will be there during the full Launch

    Ah, good point. I missed that detail.

    we already know were are only getting the base 8 classes in the CBT, and since we are going from CBT to launch with no deleting or resetting of data, then you shouldnt expect to see the other 3 classes at launch, but maybe a few months down the road they will be available.

    but from what has also been said, we can expect to get the Restart update enhancements/ changes.

    Logically, it makes no sense to release the classes right at the end of CBT for launch but not have them in the CBT, because then what's the point of the CBT.

    Either way there are plenty of good classes releasing in CBT and even if thats the roster for release we'll all have something we can enjoy! :D
