A patch in Mabinogi is called a Chapter, Generation, or Season and sometimes is referred as a combination of the three such as CXGXSX (Example: Handicraft was implemented in C1G2S4). Each Chapter is made up of Generations, and each Generation is made up of Seasons.

A chapter is much like the chapter of a book on Mabinogi; in each chapter there will be a new story.

The Current Celtic Knot icon
The Green Celtic Knot icon
  • The term "Chapters" started at the release of Generation 4, named C2G4S1.
  • In Chapter 1, the Mabinogi Celtic knot symbol was green in color. From Chapter 2 onwards, it became orange.

Generation patches are large updates. Each Generation usually includes a new mainstream quest, new areas, races, towns, skills and more.

  • Generations are made up of seasons, and when a new Generation starts the Season count will get reset to 1 (Example: If there's a Generation patch, it will be named Generation X Season 1).
  • Generations don't come fully at once. They start with a big update labeled Season 1, and then continue with smaller seasons after. (Read the Patch Notes for better details.)

Seasons are always small patches, but don't get them wrong, they always add something small and special into the game. Most of the time there's only 4 seasons in each Generation, but this changes sometimes.

  • The "Extra" Seasons are actually named Sub-season X.

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 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.

Closed Beta

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 will start on January 29th, 2008 and given 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.

Pre-Open Beta

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 25nd, 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.

Open Beta

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.

Trivia

  • 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.
    • European Mabinogi had a similar patch called 'The Uncharted Lands' before it was discontinued.
      • This patch contained Generations 4 through 11.
  • 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.
  • Patch descriptions of the unimplemented Chapters, Generations, and Seasons are based on the Korean Mabinogi. Nexon North America may change them. This page will be updated when those patches come out in the corresponding server.
  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 This was initially intended but bugs/glitches on Nexon's side caused this to be removed and later implemented.
  2. 2.0 2.1 This was an intended feature in a previous version yet implemented now due to glitches in the past.
