Update (2:00 PM PDT): An update has been deployed to resolve an issue where players are unable to login into their Google accounts on Nexon Launcher if running Windows 7. Please note that this update will help resolve the login issue for a specific group of players. We are still looking into fully resolving this issue impacting all players.

The day is finally here: MapleStory 2 is finally launched, free to play for Maplers all around the world! It's been an exciting 6 months since our announcement back in April, and we're thrilled to finally be able to share this new dimension of Maple World with everyone. We've got plenty more in store for you as the days, weeks, months and years unwind, and we hope you have a blast with our very first update and the new job, new maps, new monsters, new events and new outfits to come with the Official Launch Update!

New Job: Runeblade

The Runeblades of Terrun Calibre are the perfect marriage of melee combat and mystical might. On the hunt, chasing after a traitor to the order, the Runeblade will stop at nothing to take vengeance upon the vile Holstatt and avenge his teacher's heinous murder... but it will take the combination of Pelgian bladecraft and Jibrician rune magic to stop him.

The Runeblade uses a powerful combination of heavy melee attacks and powerful elemental spells that become bolstered with the runes applied to the Runeblade's two-handed blade. Use the Flame Sigil to boost your health and make your Echoing Blade assault burn the opposition, or apply the Frost Sigil and harden your armor along with your weapons, causing the Impact attack to freeze the ground your foes fight on. With attacks and spells that devastate in both the melee and at a distance, Runeblade's an effective fighter against nearly any opposition.
