A patch, sometimes referred to as updates, is typically a major addition to the game. Patches are organized into Chapters, Generations, Seasons, and/or Episodes. Each Chapter is made up of Generations, and each Generation is made up of either Seasons or Episodes.
Currently, Mabinogi North America's Client is at Version 196. The latest patch is The Saga: Iria II, which was released on October 14th, 2014.

Before Closed Beta
On December 19th, 2007 Nexon America released its NA Mabinogi teaser site, featuring a small teaser Mabinogi video.
Some time later on the official website has been released with little to no information about Mabinogi.
On January 4th, 2008 Nexon started posting video clips of Lorna and Pan explaining to players what can be done inside the game, the first episode was released on that day.
A Couple of days after January 4th, 2008 Nexon opened the registration to the Closed Beta.
On January 25th, 2008 Nexon decided to end the Closed Beta registration process, and notified all the registered accounts that the Closed Beta would start on January 29th, 2008 and gave the download links to the Closed Beta client.
On January 29th, 2008 the Closed Beta finally began, and Nexon started the server called Nao (so called Mari now, which is interestingly the other way it should be), it is unknown how many players logged in during this time.
On February 5th, 2008 the Closed Beta ended, it ran for 8 days and was shut down at 9 P.M. PST, all the characters were deleted.
A day after the end of the Closed Beta, on February 6th, 2008 Nexon posted an announcement on the official website that Pre-Open Beta was to be launched on February 23rd, 2008, and any person would be eligible.
On February 22nd, 2008 players noticed that the patch server had started working, and their Closed Beta clients updated to version 6, this was the first patch recorded by players in Mabinogi.
On February 23rd, 2008 the Pre-Open Beta was launched at 10 A.M. PST, and servers had been opened again with the single server called Nao.
On February 25th, 2008 the servers were shutdown, and Pre-Open Beta had ended at 10 A.M. PST. Nexon had announced to their players that Open Beta will launch on March 5th, 2008. The Pre-Open Beta ran in total for 2 days.
On March 5th, 2008 the patch server had been launched again, and people updated their clients, at 3 A.M. PST the servers of Open Beta had been opened with the servers named Mari, Tarlach, and Ruairi.
On March 26th, 2008 the servers had been shutdown at 5 P.M. PST, and the Open Beta ended, and all the characters left untouched.

- During the patch called 'The Pioneers of Iria', Nexon North America released three Generations in one patch: Generation 4, Generation 5, and Generation 6 at the same time.
- It should be noted that Nexon updated at that patch to Generation 6 Season 4, but did not have some of the content in Generation 4 to 6, most of which were released with Generation 7 and Generation 8.
- There are times where Nexon North America create their own minor patches and do not name or announce them, these patch notes are not released here due to that reason.
- Nexon North America has the right to and may change any updates from their Foreign Content renditions. Nexon America may also choose to not include any updates or part of updates.
- This was initially intended but bugs/glitches on Nexon's side caused this to be removed and later implemented.
- This was an intended feature in a previous version yet implemented now due to glitches in the past.
