MapleStory Sneak Peek: New Dawn Update

By maplestory

It’s going to be a brand-new day for MapleStory when the New Dawn update goes live in early September. If you can’t wait that long, here below have got a little treat for you: a video preview of Mihile, who previously served as an NPC and can be played in the update. Players will be able to explore Mihile and find out how he became the Knight of Light — and investigate his abilities in the process.

Mihile uses a one-handed sword and a special shield known as the Soul Shield. Unlike other shields, this one improves as Mihile does, earning an upgrade with each advancement and leveling up as it gains experience. That gives Mihile a defensive bulwark from the start of his career all the way to the apex. Check out the preview past the cut, and keep your eyes peeled for more information before the update in early September.
