MapleSEA fires up the June school holidays with the launch of two
characters and a new hangout for players as it releases part four
of its Season 2 content today.
The first character to be introduced is the final hero who
helped to seal up Black Mage, Luminous. During the battle, Luminous
and Phantom were the last to arrive upon Freud's instructions. When
Luminous entered the Black Mage's throne, he found the injured
Freud and through telepathy, Luminous was told to seal off the
Black Mage once and for all.
However, in the midst of Freud and Luminous fighting to activate
the seals, Black Mage attempted to break free and Luminous had no
choice but to physically clash with him. Though Black Mage was
ultimately defeated, Luminous was tainted in the process.
100 years later, as Luminous woke up and found himself in
Ellinia, the dark powers within him gained control and he
annihilated the entire area. Slowly, he gained control over
himself and realised that his light and dark powers are at an
imbalance as the dark powers he gained from Black Mage started to
show its true form and therefore, he had to make the choice between
the Light and the Dark.
As a Luminous, players will be able to choose either the Light
or the Dark powers to embark on an adventure with the challenging
character. They would have to maintain the balance between these
two powers to unleash the most damage upon their enemies.

While Luminous is caught up with the balancing of his powers, a
new character is also rising in
another part of the Maple World, Pantheon. Kaiser also
originates from the Nova race like the Angelic Buster. He was
defender of Grandis 100 years ago, and went off to battle
Magnus, one of Black Mage's commanders after telling his comrades
to stay behind
and protect Pantheon.
Unfortunately, even when he transformed to his final stand as
wore on, Magnus proved too strong and Kaiser had to unleash an
attack that eradicated both Magnus'
forces and himself as a last resort. It was
that Kaiser would eventually reincarnate as a Nova child.
Forward to the present times and a little boy called Kyle formed
the Heliseum force with his friends, Tear and Velderoth. In the
same battle where Tear became the Angelic Buster, Kyle killed one
of the priests, who tried to seize a relic, after Tear was
defeated. At the same time, the Kaiser powers awaken within him and
he killed the remaining priests.
When Kyle regained consciousness, he was told that he is the
reincarnation of Kaiser and from then, he had to accept his destiny
as the defender of Pantheon.
Players will have to fill up a morph gauge by using skills to
attack their enemies, before they can transform into Kaiser. Once
transformed, players will be awed by the power Kaiser during the

Other than creating new adventures with the new characters,
players can also travel to the new Gold Beach resort for a breather
and hang out with their friends at this sunny recluse.
Gold Beach is a new theme dungeon where Gold Richie is in the
midst of setting up his resort business with his son, Gold Richie
Junior. Set against a backdrop of white sandy beaches and crystal
clear waters, players will need to help Gold Richie overcome some
of the problems he encountered while trying to start his resort
Open to level 40 and above, players will need to accept a quest
to be ported over to this new map. Otherwise, they could head to
the Six Path Crossroad and look for Pilot Irvine if they needed an
escape to the sunny paradise.
In conjunction with the launch, there will also be a plethora of
events and activities waiting for players to participate and
explore and win attractive rewards and prizes. Players can also
keep a lookout for a unique party experience that will be coming
soon to celebrate MapleSEA's 8
th birthday too.
