Active players will be able to repeat these quests multiple times, earning a sizeable cache of Eva coins. These coins can be traded for a host of shiny rewards. Most notably a range of Rei, Shinji, and Asuka skins are available for your avatar. Chairs based on the Eva units and an iconic Evangelion scene between Shinji and Kaworu are also available, alongside hairstyles and Eva androids.
In the end, many of these quests are quite pointedly used to increase player engagement and keep you playing existing content. Whether it is used to incentivize players to MapleStory 2 Mesos stay logged in by holding a battery for thirty minutes, farm mobs for metal shards, or step into Monster Park to train, these do reward players active in the world. It introduces little in the way of insight or narrative, but that isn’t really the intention here. For players are regularly logging into the world, these quests act as a suitably fresh taste to regular content, and honestly, it is very cool to see an Angel stomp into town and pick a fight.
I have to be honest, I don’t play MapleStory as much as I’d like, but I am a massive Evangelion fan and that is clearly what hooked me. While MapleStory doesn’t have the same deep technical capabilities of massive open world MMORPGs, there are moments that are crafted with a clear reverence for the source material. If you want to battle Angels, the Maplestory X Evangelion event is on now https://www.lolga.com.
