After 5+ years of success and development, Aries has decided to iterate on its success by overhauling its farming methods to improve gameplay for early, mid, and endgame players alike. Enjoy various methods of farming without getting bored of doing the same thing repeatedly (no more MP farming, no Bye-Bye Station, etc). Few MapleStory servers live 5+ years. Fewer servers are up to date with Global MapleStory. Celebrating 5+ years of continued success with the latest Anniversary Event, AriesMS is the only server that has both. With constant updates and a supportive Staff Team, come give us a try today to see why!

Additional Remarks: Still banners for all 4 seasons, this draft is meant to reflect each seasonal event in the banner, RLH, Anniversary, Christmas and Halloween. I do hope on practicing more and may make different drafts/versions as the month goes on but it is not guaranteed so this may or may not be my final submission.

Edit: 2nd version for Halloween included in the 2nd link. Portrays Halloween more than the previous one.

Any feedback or suggestion both from staff or players for either the offline event or just general photoshop/digital art are highly appreciated and welcomed.

Perhaps you've had bad experiences with Maplestory private servers, where your hard-earned progress gets wiped into nothingness in a single night? Fear not, as AriesMS has been running for over 5 years now, and stability has always been our top priority. Being up-to-date with GMS, AriesMS comes with everyone’s beloved end-game bosses such as Darknell and Verus Hilla for players brave enough to challenge them and reap the rewards. Gearing up has never been more fun with AriesMS’s improved and optimized mesos rates, providing players with an option to not only farm in the ever-challenging Monster Park, but also earn some serious cash while levelling at the same time! If you are still not convinced, how about 4 seasonal events each year, each containing entertaining daily activities and unique prizes to be won? Join AriesMS now! And experience the time of your life on our iteration of how we think the mushroom game should be played.

Throughout the 5 Years journey, we have been improving everyday to make grinding easier for early/mid/end-game players. No more relying on MP Farming and head out to Elite maps for easy Mesos/NX farming rates. We also have a unique Paragon system where you can continue to train at Paragon Maps after the max level all the way from P1-P100. Also, not to forget our Seasonal Events as well as Anniversary Events where you can obtain unique Pets/Mounts and NX items. Responsive GMs and Staffs will always be there to answer your enquiries! We will continue to grow and provide you with the best in-game experiences! Wait no more and join us and have fun!

AriesMS celebrated the 5th Anniversary this year! For these 5 years, we have been delivering awesome contents and keeping up with GMS patches flawlessly.

We axed the stagnation of the leveling experience by implementing the one-of-a-kind Elite Channels and Paragon Systems for beyond 300! With our insane 8x EXP rate, our Maplers can enjoy the frenzy of leveling without suffering unhealthy fatigue as in official servers!

We also revamped our farming systems, boosting the meso rate to 6x, improving all maps meso quantity, and diversifying our farming methods (Bosses, FPQ and Dojo). Along with our active market with supportive platforms (Discord and Forum), Monster Park no longer stands as the sore farming method of AriesMS!

For Maplers who fancy challenges, AriesMS offer most endgame bosses with functional difficulties! Enjoy the rush of adrenaline when battling in the Labyrinth of Verus Hilla, or test your resolve in the Final Horizon of Guard Captain Darknell!

Become our next legendary Maplers now in AriesMS!
