Here is a great fun fact about MapleStory:
Thursday, 17th January 2019, Global MapleStory is 5,000 days old!! *Clap Clap*

So what is so special about that day???
- Well, it's exactly 5,000 days since the Global MapleStory's service was launched officially (it was on 11th May 2005)!
- In Korea MapleStory (KMS), they greatly celebrated that ever existing of the game about 2 years ago.
- For that celebration, Nexon Korea invested in a special orchestra project of which is called MapleStory Symphony in Budapest.
This happened 2 years ago, too. Classic MapleStory music have been remade with an orchestra! I'm sure that some of you remember it!
One of the most known ones which was implemented into the game is the one called The Tune of The Azure Light featuring Arcana content released as part of the Arcane River region during Override (Beyond) days.

The Tune of The Azure Light (Orchestra Version)


Here's a track created using the theme of Masteria Through Time content:
An Eternal Breath


- If it's not enough, they invested in some special in-game events including some exclusive rewards including permanent decorative cash equipments such as Maple 5000 Days's Flag.
But I think that the most special reward among the others which is permanent and transferable within characters in the same world of account
is the Maple 5000 Days Cake Chair which is the only chair in game which greatly benefits with the fastest ever of HP and MP recovery - 5,000 HP and 5,000 MP every 10 seconds as the number the of days of celebration! To win that final reward, it required to collect candles from monsters for a 10th tier cake during the event period (up to 10 times).
It was impossible to get all of them in one day, and if a day or two were missed, it was possible to complete these (up to 3 times a day).
Rewards included a skill which is looking like this:

Rumbling Maple Skill (can be used until the end of the event)

Cake Chair (transferable within characters in the same world of account, permanent)

Even though I'm not sure why it was not mentioned officially...

Happy 5,000 days everyone!!

    Shade feels like most people sometimes he's relatable.

    So if MapleStory is over 5000 days old...
    Now I can't remember if she's ALWAYS said this, but I think she has...

    Utah has had over 5000 birthdays! I don't know how he managed to paradox himself into having one every single day.
    But, Happy Birthday Utah! I'm sure you're tired of hearing that!
