kMSt ver. 1.2.457 – Demon Avenger & MapleStory Unlimited!

November 28, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

A new patch has been released in Tespia, giving us additional changes to Random Options, bosses, and other things. However, the more exciting thing is a new job, not Automata, but Demon Avenger, a split path for Demon Slayer! The preview video for the Winter update has also been released~

The Winter patch is called Unlimited, and will consist of 4 updates~

  • December 6: Unlimited – more powerful items, bosses, and characters!
  • December 20: Demon Avenger – intense charisma! Feel the true power of the Demon!
  • January 3: Xenon – the eyes of a sad fate, born to be the perfect battler
  • January 20: Monster Life – MapleStory delivers special fun! A fun party to make new friends begins!

What really interests me are those little fade ins at the end of the video… Who are these people? They seem really creepy for being a chicken and a clown… and the dragon… maybe we’ll be receiving a new area with these as bosses?

Additional Options (renamed from Random Options) have been changed slightly. The probability of equipment having it has been decreased, as well as the chances of receiving certain options such as boss damage and total damage.

Weapons will receive Additional Options based on a percentage of their base attack and magic attack while armor will receive fixed values depending on the rank of the Options. Items that have their level requirements increased will have a higher chance to gain advanced Options.

The list of items that can receive Additional Options are: pendant, face accessory, eye accessory, hat, earrings, top, overall, bottom, gloves, shoes, cape, belt, pocket, and armor. Secondary weapons and shields cannot have Additional Options.

A new item, the Flame of Reincarnation, can give items Additional Options. They can be used multiple times on an item. Using a Flame on an item will give it 5 Scissor counts (this effect will only work once per item though). The Flame will give different Additional Options based on if the item is a regular equipment or boss equipment.

Some bosses will now drop recipes for their equipment that will have Additional Options when created. The list is as follows:

  • Van Leon equipment
  • Stone of Eternal Life
  • Dominator Pendant
  • Loveless equipment
  • Chaos Pink Bean (Black Bean) equipment
  • Cygnus equipment
  • Tyrant equipment

When fighting a boss, rewards will be distributed automatically after the boss has been defeated. In addition, equipment that bosses drop will have a higher chance to have Additional Options.

The Zakum expedition has been removed. Bosses have received some changes again.

All Bosses

  • Boss monsters’ defense has been reorganized

Magnus

  • Magnus’ skill effects have been changed
  • Sleeping gas’ effect has been lengthened to be more noticeable

Cygnus

  • Cygnus’ whirlwind skill’s duration has been decreased
  • When expelled by Cygnus, you must defeat all the monsters to return to her map
  • Some skills that were used too often were adjusted
  • The characteristics of her summoned monsters were changed

Pink Bean

  • Warning notice of attacks and effect times have been changed

Arkairum

  • The health of your copy has been changed
  • The characteristics of the summoned priests have been changed
  • Arkairum’s drops have been adjusted

Hilla

  • Normal Mode and Hard Mode’s summons’ health have been adjusted
  • The characteristics and damage of some attacks have been changed

Van Leon

  • Time limit has been changed to 30 minutes

Zakum

  • Chaos Zakum’s health has been changed

Horntail

  • Chaos Horntail’s health has been changed
  • The effects of some skills have been lengthened
  • The characteristics and damage of some attacks have been changed

Monsters level 160 and over have had their health, defense, and damage increased. Monsters level 110 to 159 have had their health and defense increased.

Inner Ability has been reorganized, it is now named Ability. You now unlock each line of Ability by doing a quest at level 30, 50, and 70. The set up of Ability ranks has been changed to Rare, Epic, Unique, and Legendary. All Circulators have been condensed into the Ability Circulator, and you will receive them for every level of Honor you get after 31. You can also buy them from the Aswan shop or from bosses.

     

Mercedes, Phantom, Mikhail, Luminous, Kaiser, and Angelic Burster have received level 2 Link Skills~ Like Demon Slayer and Cannon Shooter, you must reach level 120 to unlock level 2. Also, existing Hyper Skills associated with the damage cap have been adjusted based on the new damage cap.

  • Elf’s Blessing: level 2 – 15% bonus experience
  • Deadly Instinct: level 2 – 15% critical chance
  • Guardian of Light: level 2 – 110 second duration
  • Permeate: level 2 – 15% defense ignored
  • Iron Will: level 2 – 15% HP
  • Soul Contract: level 2 – 90% damage increase (45% for Link Skill)

Demon’s new split job advancement, the Demon Avenger, has been added! It is created using the same process as Demon Slayer. After you arrive at the Resistance HQ, you must choose whether to become a Demon Slayer or Demon Avenger.

Like Demon Slayer, you can choose to be a male or female Demon Avenger.

He uses the Desperado as his weapon, and the Force Shield as his secondary weapon. However, his Force Shield does not increase his Force.

His damage is based off his current HP, and his skills consume HP but no Force. This is new to MapleStory, a character who does not require any stats but only HP!

Demon Avenger has the ability to use increasingly power skills with the Exceed system. As you use an Exceed skill, it will become faster and stronger. This will also apply if you do not use an Exceed skill for a certain period of time.

Exceed attack skills will increase your attack speed / make your attacks stronger the more you use it, but it will tire your body and the HP you can absorb from Absorb Life will decrease. The skill’s characteristic will change once Exceed skill enters the final enhanced state, and if you use skills other than mobility skills, enhanced state will reset.

        November 29, 2012 at 12:31 pm

        Well if you actually searched up what scythes are, they aren’t that great for fighting. Scythes are used for farming and aren’t like swords where you just slash around and it cuts. It is like an axe but the blade is at the bottom edge of the thing. If you ever try to attack with a scythe by thrusting, you will only be hitting your opponent with the blunt edge.

        BTW: I am sure most of you guys that wants scythes are all anime watchers. I know scythes are used many times in anime battles and are strong buy in reality they aren’t even that great. If you watch Bleach and know what Kira’s shiki form looks like, you’ll how it is used to kill people. They are somewhat similar.

        Just for you to know, I am not against them making a job with scythes, but i am just bringing up the point that scythes are not meant to be used as weapons but for harvesting back then when people had no technology. ^o^

          November 29, 2012 at 9:21 pm

          lol thanks for clarifying. I know what a scythe is and i would be a dumbass to try to use one in a fight but they look sick as shit and it could be a magic scythe. Any weapon with magic is automatically good!

    Does his story change at all if you become an Avenger? I think it would be cool if Slayers go against the Wings and Avengers join them or something. I just want a class that works for the Black Wings!! Evans excluded of course.

    • Karkain
      November 28, 2012 at 11:28 pm

      It wouldn’t make any sense for Demon Slayer (Avenger, in this case) to join the Black Wings, who are minions of the Black Mage after Demon Slayer/Avenger kinda lost his family to him. The entire plot of Demon Slayer’s/Avenger’s story is vengeance. Although I too would like to see “evil” classes…

    • Brayson

      If anything, it has to do with the level requirement changes that the Additional Options have given us; altering the levels of equipment, but keeping the same stat requirements.

    • Max

      Its so he can wear equipment without needing str (since he requires HP), it does not ignore level requirements.

          But if you look closely at the pic showing Demon Avenger’s AP window, all the add AP buttons are greyed out except for HP, meaning you can’t even PUMP anything other than HP, meaning you wouldn’t have herpaderped, because you COULDN’T have herpaderped even if you WANTED to.

      November 29, 2012 at 1:40 am

      I know what you’re saying, but in all seriousness, there is almost no such thing as an “original class” in MapleStory, as such…
      Hero, Paladin, Dark Knight, Arch Mage (I/L and F/P), Bishop, Bowmaster, Marksmen, Night Lord, Shadower, and Dual Blade are ALL based off of generic fantasy character ideas.
      Evan is knocked off of Eragon (never actually read the book, but this seems to be what people tell me; correct me if I’m wrong)?
      Mercedes is taken from Demon Hunter in Diablo III (which was in the making long before Mercedes was for Maple) and they added Elven qualities to it
      Phantom is loosely based off of Gambit from X-Men (you can probably find more if you poke around on BasilMarket)
      Luminous is easily knocking off Red Mages from Final Fantasy considering that it utilizes light and dark magic
      Kaiser is a clear modification of Dragon Knights in general fantasy lore
      Battle Mage is just that…a mage designed for close combat from generic fantasy; nothing tricky there
      Wild Hunter is basically just a mounted archer; tons of those in books and what not
      Mechanic is based on anything involving mech suits, whether it be Gundam or the mech suits in The Matrix
      Cannoneer is just a guy with an artillery cannon; tons of those in pirate stories
      Jett…uhm…Han Solo?
      Knights of Cygnus are carbon copies of certain Adventurers; act accordingly
      Mihile is based on a mix between Paladin and Hero; act accordingly
      Demon Slayer? I recall some people claiming that he was based on some character or other in some game, feel free to fill me in
      I got nothing on Angelic Buster and Aran; it’s also way past my bedtime right now and I don’t feel like digging, so I’m content with this
      Point being that if you want to get serious, Nexon never really had any ideas as far as classes go

        Kaiser and Magnus are copies of the Breath of Fire IV characters Ryu and Fou-Lu.

        Both were 1 being split in 2, and they could transform into dragons. Ryu’s best form was Kaiser, and Fou-Lu’s best form(Ryu’s opposite) was Tyrant, thus Magnus’ equipments names.

        The rest is more or less as you said.

          Copies? Ryu and Fou-Lu look nothing like Kaiser and Magnus. The closest thing in that game to the Novas is Ryu’s Myrmidon dragon form, the sword wielding armor dragon thing. The same thing can be said to the guy above with the random list. Gambit and Phantom? lol right

          Demon Avenger, however, looks like an exact copy of Castlevania’s Alucard, save for the face mark and colorful sword. I mean, the hair, outfit, wings, and sword wielding? Yeah, definitely a copy.

            Both DEAL with cards (pun intended)
            Both use some sort of staff weapon (a cane is just a shorter staff)
            Both are professional thieves (obligatory text within parentheses)

        Eragon… not really. Uncle didn’t really know about any egg, the egg appeared totally differently, and only stuff Dragons could do was Breathing Fire. Besides occasional magic-outbreaks.
        But it has got a FEW silmiaritys or relations.
        For example, in the first book, Eragon and Brom had to use cover-up names so nobody really knows their name. Did I mention Eragon’s name was ‘Evan’? Huehuehue.

    Awesome new class. I’d definitely play it if it wasn’t going to be ruined forever (or for at least a whole year) in 6 months.

    Such a shame that it’ll be Demon Slayer all over again.

    By the time it comes to Global, Nexon will have already fucked it in the ass with a baseball bat, subsequently tearing out all its innards and leaving Demon Avenger a hollow, weak, useless shell of the class he once was upon release. Even after the first set of inadequate buffs, the time between the 6-months-later nerf and the 1-year-later reparations will still be horrible for Demon Avengers.

    Although, if they made the option to create one a permanent addition to the game (instead of dicking around with time limits) that might get me to start playing again. Probably not, though, as the NA community is insufferably moronic with it’s cries of “OMG SO OP!” this and “HEY! HIME!” that. They’re kind of like Navi, only legion.

    I hope just once Nexon doesn’t give in to their incessant whining about shit that doesn’t matter, and instead responds to any and all criticisms of the class with “problem?” or “u mad?” Although I wouldn’t mind if they retooled the attack animation and speed of Execution to be a bit cooler and significantly less fugly

            at first i think that Automata and Xenon somehow are the same class but when i check back the skill table of Automata,his skill are not matched with the Xenon’s weapon and i think Automata are Demon Slayer/Avenger brother,Damien.

          Let me resume this:
          -That’s not Demon Slayer’s brother Damien, that’s Demon Slayer himself, it’s just a new branch from the same class, it’s the same person, but different classes.
          -Second, there’s no Automata, the name is Xenon, Nexon renamed it. Also, we don’t know what his skills are, or what the weapon is actually. That class can be anything, it can be an android too, some androids in fiction are so well designed they look humans, this one can be too, so shut up and wait for the thruth.

    I quickly went through the comments.

    So Demon Avenger has the same storyline as Demon Slayer, right?
    Is Demon Avenger actually the same person as the Demon Slayer?

    His sword looks really epic in the picture and I love the skills he got.

      IT IS basically demon slayer (exact storyline), but you can choose him to become either the good’ol DS or Demon Avenger after talking to the Resistances

      The class itself is now “Demon”, if you look at the topmost image.
      When you do first advancement, you can choose from Avenger or Slayer.

    From what I’ve read, it’s pretty much the followin’ points:
    Demon Avenger is exactly the same thing as Demon Slayer with the exceptions being stat mechanics, weapon mechanics, and skill mechanics. Otherwise Demon Slayer and Demon Avenger have the exact same personality, storyline, and interactions with NPCs. Storyline-wise, they can never interact with each other because they lived through the exact same event at the exact same time.

    However, I have several questions that may not be answered.
    1) Is it possible for the Demon Avenger to have it’s weapon classified under a sword for scrolls?
    2) Is it possible that the Shield does anything at all? I’ve only seen it in use for 4th job skills.
    3) Max, do you think that the Nexon company might remove the AP reset because of stats invested in HP cannot be retrieved?
    4) (For people that know how to build AP builds) Would it be more advantageous for me to invest in STR instead of HP? I’ve read somewhere that the amount of strength increases the % HP one would receive upon leveling up.

    • Max
      November 29, 2012 at 3:35 pm

      1. Nope, it’s an entirely new type of weapon with its own scrolls.
      2. It doesn’t do anything at all really, its only there to be its secondary weapon.
      3. Not sure.
      4. STR does not affect the HP you gain.

    • ro
      December 1, 2012 at 1:26 am

      With Demonic Class, the average player won’t be putting any points in STR/DEX/INT/LUK at all. You could try to run a stat build, but since the points will only be going to HP why remove the AP reset at all?

      Xenon is an element*, and it’s likely named Xenon because, as a noble gas, Xenon is very luminescent when energy is applied to it, making it excellent for laser optics, much like the laser whip he seems to be holding.

    just like GMS loves ALIEMS

    Lets make recycle/reboot the success of “Legends” by remaking another Demon Slayer with a 2handed Sword, cus BLEACH and other 2handed swords weilding anime characters are so freaking popular and awesome!!

    So that Xenon dude is supposed to be the Thief Resistance character now instead of Automata?

    shouldn’t they be saying “half-demon” on the creation screen, since DS/A -is- a halfblood?
    actually it’s been bugging me right along, they should be demonic slayer/avenger. EVERYONE is a demon slayer at some point since there’s demon type mooks in the game. hello, balrog?

    ANYWAY. interesting to see them go with the whole HP IS EVERYTHIIIIIIING! concept here. be interested also to see some story stuff for this, since I find it hard to swallow that the dude would completely change out his power set and yet have NOBODY say anything different about it. especially merc, and anyone else who’d remember who he is.

    seems a lost opportunity, not having it be DS’ brother; they could have used the “dramatic battle of brothers” cliche then.

      Half blood? Which one of his parents are human because I don’t remember his mother being a human or anything other than a demon. We never got to see his father so he could just be an none f-ugly looking demon. Unless you can show me where he’s a half blood in the game, ( I would love to see as it would make his story line more interesting) if not he’s just a regular demon. Also as everyone has noticed his hair and skin goes paler as a demon avenger. I’m assuming that without demon force he becomes less demonic which could be proof of him being a half-blood.

    Boycott Nexon is just an angry loser who now realizes how much time he wasted on this game and has no one to blame but himself and his stupidity for allowing a maple to ruin his life.

      Who knows maybe GMS will call it something else like they done with “Jump! to Ascension” and Alliance 3 parter patches, and “Justice to Renegades”.

      Maybe they will call it something cool like Maplestory: Super-Nova? or Maplestory: Transcendence?

    Zakum expedition will be gone?? So the only way Evans can get Flame Wheel is through Hilla?!?!

      No. Only the signing up for the expedition will be gone. You can still participate, as the actual Zakum isn’t gone.

    Maybe the Bird is another species of Humanoid creatures living in Grandis, like Humanoids with Bird Features, and the clown..probably some kind of Nova Demon..

    mithi9 :
    Doesn’t sat anywhere that weps have more damage
    I beg of y to try out for example Mercedes after this patch
    U will NOT hit close to what this thing hits
    U can only get % increase damage with random options
    And Max clearly stated that the probability has been decreased when get a good random option
    Or even try any adventurer class
    Even at lvl 120 it won’t hit as much as this does at 60

    Dude, adventurers suck compared to all the new stuff. Always have and always will. If you’re going to declare a class OP, then you need to compare it to OTHER timed classes, like heroes and Novas, not adventurers.

      Sure , compare it to any other hero
      Mercedes for example
      I have one on kms lvl 129
      And my range is nearly 10 k
      Hits no where close what so ever
      While this thing hits in the 500k are with a range of like 11k -_____-
      Tell me that’s completely balanced

        December 3, 2012 at 8:38 am

        And FYI I compared it to Mercedes, not an adventurer

        if u didnt see correctly u will see that damage will increase

          I’m not sure why everyone is thinking that everyone’s damage is now off the charts, if you’re lucky you’ll get a decent option on your stats
          You’re not going to magically start hitting high numbers

        1. You most likely have low funds.
        2. Demon avenger is in KMST not the actual server
        3. An unfunded mercedes can get 10k range easy at lvl 95
        4. Warriors are OP
        5. Do i really need to say anymore?

        dont bother complaining ignorant idiot, if a class as a whole has low damage that just shows that its more for funded people, mercedes is also built for dealing multiple attacks very quickly, ridiculously fast attackers tend to commonly have low damage

        • mithi9
          December 3, 2012 at 8:26 pm

          so if a class on a whole has op damage like this class, its meant for unfunde people?
          there are so many holes in your logic -_____-

          • 1307Unlucky
            December 4, 2012 at 10:51 am

            Um… Mercedes is not a job/class that focuses on heavy damage. Mercedes is probably one of the only classes that focuses on attacking in quick succession like Dual Blades. Either that or you have terrible luck with scrolls, equipment potential, or you allocated your stats to a very inefficient way.

    Um… I just noticed that after going over some skills of DA and DS that DA doesn’t have the skill that allows him to use the wings. So can he still use the same wing skills or does he have to acutally walk like the rest of the classes?

    • Max
      December 3, 2012 at 3:52 pm

      I didn’t add it in because they weren’t in the patch notes, but yes Demon Avenger has the same demon wing skills (double jump, upper jump, glide) as DS.

    The chicken pretty much looks like Bulsajo(aka Pheonix), a character from the Korean webtoon ‘Jungle High School’, who has a head(and maybe hands?) of a chicken and a human body. It would be hillarious if it really were him, hehe

    Demon Avenger is cool, but if he follows the same storyline, then..errrr…I’ll think about it before I start to play him.

    No offense, but I’m not really interested in Xenon. I like Gothic-looking guys better XDD

    Great blog you have here but I was curious about if you knew of
    any community forums that cover the same topics discussed in this
    article? I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get feed-back from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Kudos!

  132. July 15, 2013 at 12:37 am

    I almost never drop remarks, however I looked at a few of the responses on this page
    kMSt ver. 1.2.457 – Demon Avenger & MapleStory Unlimited!
    | Orange Mushroom’s Blog. I do have some questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be simply me or do some of these comments appear like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at other online social sites, I’d like
    to keep up with anything new you have to post.
    Would you post a list of all of your public sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  133. September 27, 2013 at 4:47 am

    Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your bog site in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
    overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
