Players interested in a powerful and magical character can now play as Phantom and help this cursed soul protect his late Empress Aria’s successor. MapleStory will also be holding a Phantom Welcome Event and opening a new world to celebrate the Renegades update.


With a charming personality and money to spare, Phantom uses his cane and magical cards for his attacks and skills when pulling a fast one on unsuspecting players. This tricky Thief Hero can mimic certain skills of Explorer class characters and use them to his advantage. This highly mobile, fast attacking and critically damaging Phantom character is now available for players to create in MapleStory. Players who create Phantom, or any other character, in the new Renegades world will be able to access a special quest from Cassandra.

Hundreds of years ago, Phantom was a master thief who gained fame and fabulous wealth by stealing only the most precious treasures from the rich. He left signature items at each crime scene, but because his true identity was never revealed, he was dubbed “Phantom” by the people. Phantom decided to join the fight against the Black Mage when his beloved Empress Aria was murdered by an envoy of the mage. Falling under a curse, Phantom was frozen in magical ice for hundreds of years and has only now broken free, filled with vengeance and the desire to defeat the Black Mage.
