kMSt ver. 1.2.438 – Protector of the Dragons, Kaiser!

This patch was HUGE, adding both the tutorial for Luminous as well as the new job, protector of the dragons, Kaiser! There’s also the long awaited Tempest shop and some new Cash Shop items! I’ll be going down the patch notes so read on~!

Kaiser will come to the real server on July 26! There has been no storyline added. I will cover the Tempest shop and Cash items a bit later, I’m busy right now!

The first new job of the Nova race, Kaiser, has been added! I think we can expect four more jobs! Kaiser has its job advancements at the regular levels of 10, 30, 60, and 100.

When you create one, you can choose your gender, as well as choose from two hair styles. From left to right in this picture, it’s male, female, male, female.

Haha they reused Luminous’ character creation background.

Kaiser seems to be some sort of half dragon, he comes with horns, wings, and a tail!

Kaiser uses two-handed swords, and a secondary weapon, the Dragon’s Soul. I think at fourth job you can give potential to the Soul.

Kaiser uses the Morph Gauge and Command skill systems. The Morph Gauge appears on your screen, it has the symbol of a dragon. As you use skills, the Morph Gauge will fill up and give you extra stats! If you are third job, once the Morph Gauge turns red, you can use the Transfiguration skill to transform!

To fill up the Morph Gauge, you must use the Command skill. Now, as Kaiser, you can hotkey his skills like normal. However, using them like that will fill up the Morph Gauge very slowly. To do it faster, you must use your Dragon Slash (attack key) as well as the arrow keys and the Command skill to activate skills. Doing so will fill up the Morph Gauge much faster as well as healing a percentage of your HP.

This patch also added Luminous’ tutorial, in which you can make the choice between Light and Dark. It affects some of the storyline as well as your skills (only first job though… I think). I don’t have time to record them, so I’ll just use these videos uploaded by NeoLegionEX (thanks!).

As you can see, Luminous is the final hero to enter the battle. On his way in, he sees Phantom and Aran, who hold off the Black Mage’s forces. Inside, Mercedes and Freud have already been defeated, Demon Slayer as well. After hearing that the Black Mage has been weakened greatly, Luminous seals the Black Mage away!

In the Light version, you gain access to the skills Twinkle Flash and Light Magic Enhancement.

In the Dark version, you get Dark Falling and Dark Magic Enhancement. This one is sad though… you abandon Lania after you destroyed her home!

Luminous Skill Changes

  •  NEW SKILL: Dark Falling (1st job): [Dark Magic] Attack up to 6 enemies in front of you for 107% damage using dark magic. (max level: 20)
  •  NEW SKILL: Dark Magic Enhancement (1st job): Your damage is increased by 5% when using dark magic. (max level: 5)
  • Nox Spear (3rd job): damage has been decreased from 401% to 361%
  • Death Scythe (3rd job): damage has been decreased from 330% to 230%, number of hits has been increased from 4 to 6, cooldown has been increased from 10 seconds to 24 seconds
  • Dark Light Mastery (4th job): Death Scythe’s damage boost has been increased from 50% to 100%

Thanks to Fiel of Southperry for all skill icons and effects!

A new Pink Bean pet has been released, what makes this one unique (other than the attack bonuses for having it out, just like the Demon pets) is that its colour can be changed! After buying a Pet Color Change coupon in the Cash Shop, you can use the colour scrollers to change how your pet looks~

Also, the Zakum Dungeon Additional Entry Coupon has been added to the Cash Shop, along with one for Horntail. You can use these coupons to enter Zakum’s Altar or the Cave of Life more than the alotted 2 per day. However, you can only use 5 Additional Entry Coupons per day.

The Tempest Shop has been opened, you can find it by talking to the NPCs Wind and Spark in all major towns! Like other festival shops, they have a variety of items (mostly copy pasted, haha). I am definitely NOT going to list every single stat of every single equipment, you can check Fiel’s extractions for that.

        No. This constant spamming of new classes has ruined Maplestory beyond repair. The game has become so horribly unbalanced and convoluted that there’s almost no point in new players joining or old players returning.

    • Sky Slasher
      July 10, 2012 at 6:28 pm

      So this means no 5th jobs as speculated since if there were gonna be fifth jobs – Kaiser would have them. Since they are a part of Tempest update. Me thinks Nexon has planned variable skills for left over jobs in the 4th job. Maybe they can offer player a hundred skills and the player chooses which ones to get and maximize. Something along that lines.

      • Karkain
        July 11, 2012 at 4:42 am

        Not by a long shot. Just because Kaiser doesn’t have it doesn’t rule out the possibility for it. They may use 5th job as an attention-maker for the old classes, then turn around and do it for Kaiser. There’s a hundred different ways they could cut it. It’s not over until the fat lady sings.

    I wonder if Kaiser will be included into Black Mage story line or if Nexon is planing a new story line for the future.. I’m saying this since I think it’s the first time we hear about a new “Race” -> Nova.

    • Sky Slasher
      July 10, 2012 at 6:26 pm

      Looks like a new story line . Nexon should wrap up the black mage sage and start a new story. Probably Novas come from another planet(America Style) or parallel universe( Asian Style) with new continents , items , enemies and a new super villain in the league of the black mage.

    For some reason the animations for Kaiser looks as if they were created by a less experienced animator. They just look a tad too simple compared to some of the previous more elaborate skill animations, and the transformation is a bit too static. It would be nice if Nexon refined the skills a bit more before officially releasing the class.

    Kaiser is a copy of a magic gladiator/warrior with Hyon armor in Mu Online. It is EXACTLY the same armor and wings. The transformation even flies the same way!

    Google it for more info! :D

    _______
    Although I would accuse Nexon of copying, I once wondered years ago what it would be like to have this type of warrior in Maplestory. :3

    • July 10, 2012 at 6:31 pm

      And btw, Dragon Armor in Mu Online can be altered in a way to turn it red to look like Kaiser’s armor. o_O

      July 10, 2012 at 10:29 pm

      The correct name is Dragon Armor, there is no such thing as Hyon armor, that’s just a pirate server with renamed items. Also, magic gladiators can’t wear helmets, the “warrior” class name is Dark Knight, or Blade Master after job advancement.

    If we have to choose between light and dark, what was the point of the that orb icon on your screen that changes between light and dark

    • Tom Cat
      July 11, 2012 at 1:49 am

      i think the choice between light and dark only affects the first job skills and some of the story line, You will still be able to use both dark and light skills no matter which choice you make i believe.

    I couldn’t understand the dark tutorial, but why did luminous destroy her house?

    • Max
      July 10, 2012 at 8:39 pm

      From what I understand, Luminous bears the curse of the Black Magician in which his power is part of Luminous. That’s why Luminous uses the dark/light skill system, because the dark side is the Black Magician’s magic.

      In that moment, Luminous gets taken over by the Black Magician and destroys everything around him.

    Unflinching Courage says 4o instead of 40%? And so for luminous you could choose your own desired element or it’s balanced?

    • Max
      July 11, 2012 at 11:33 am

      I think the choice only affects your first job skills. Everything else is the same.

    Hmmm The Kaiser is way more stronger than the Luminious. They have huge damage,boost to def,mag def,attack,damage%,hp,ignore monster’s def,ignore some damage,critical and boss damage% :D I want to see the nerf already!!!! most things will be half :D and the % to give stats or instant death will go down ohhh and probably cooldowns go up :D. ks wars!!! Have fun Korea.*The update is still really nice* Oh and the 5th job may come. Max translated that there will be good things coming for high level people BUT like some one said up there ^ that if it really comes the new classes will also get the 5th!!!.

    Oh can anyone clear me this… Wasn’t the Aran who sealed away the Black Mage and not Luminious…?

    • Karkain
      July 11, 2012 at 4:46 am

      In the Aran storyline, it just says that the 5 Legends defeated and sealed the Black Mage. It was left ambiguous on purpose.

    • Tom Cat
      July 11, 2012 at 5:45 pm

      in the silent crusade quests i believe Freud (and Afrien) are the ones who seal him away… idk these story lines are all mixed up

    July 11, 2012 at 4:58 am

    Aran = better spearman
    Demonslayer = better dark knight

    Kaiser = better dragon knight

    sucks to be spear using adventurer

    Another warrior job that requires you to spam Atk…
    Well at least the Skill-Link is nice

    • Anonymous
      July 11, 2012 at 5:28 am

      You’re not required to spam attack.

      Unlike Aran, apparently the skills can be hotkeyed and the gauge doesn’t disappear if you don’t use it for a period of time. And unlike Slayer, it can simply spam skills while using pots to recover MP. It’s a vast improvement upon both, without the annoying drawbacks of either.

      The only problem I have with it is that the gauge fills up slower when hotkeying instead of using commands. Using command/arrow keys is terribly inefficient, just like with Aran. But the impracticality is essentially a handicap, making Kaiser not as OP as one would think.

  43. nerdykid
    July 11, 2012 at 6:02 am

    Can anyone explain what will happen if a player decided to choose either of the light/dark side? It does give out damage boost but what about the storyline and the 2nd, 3rd & 4th job skills?

    • BattleStyle
      July 11, 2012 at 2:35 pm

      As I see it, the only differences are:
      1) The chosen element (light/dark) will be stronger then the second, because of the 1st job skill: light/dark magic enhancement
      2) Your 1st job attacking skill is different
      3) The storyline is different.
      Besides that, nothing changed, it’s still the same job with light/dark system :)

    July 11, 2012 at 6:23 am

    some people said we hade a change in luminous gameplay, i think not, i you loook at the video the luminous light do the same thing of the first test in kmst,, maybe the only thing with a change is the storyline and the damage of darknnes and light for what side you chose, i think both luminous uses light and dakness but one is more powerfull in light and the other more powerfull in shadow

    July 11, 2012 at 1:43 pm

    these skills seem overtly flashy and not maplestory, especially the part with swords floating above the head and the giant transformation :( maybe make the transformation a little smaller to match similar proportions to other classes…
    well in my opinion

    • Tom Cat
      July 11, 2012 at 5:54 pm

      really? i was thinking Kaisers skills are a step down from flashy skills in recent classes such as Mercedes and Demon Slayer and Luminous. Almost as if there trying to bring skills back to the look they had right about when pirates came out. of course some skills (like the falling sword skill you mentioned) are still flashy and ‘new mapleish.’ well i guess most skills after 2nd job are pretty flashy, but 1st and 2nd job skills remind me of ordinary warriors
