kMSt ver. 1.2.389 – Mercedes!

Today a new patch was released to Tespia, and the new job Mercedes is available! Sadly, I don’t have a Tespia account right now (I hope I get in to the coming term!) but I have covered all the skills!

Everyone’s speed has been increased by 20%. The Quick Move system has been added. Click a button on the minimap and you can choose to be moved straight to a useful NPC on the map! All the quests in Victoria Island have been reorganized! They are now very good exp for those under level 30!

The Legend Festival has begun! Many items are available for purchase for Legend Coins in the Legend Store! A full AP reset, SP reset, advanced scrolls, many Legend weapons, many Legend scrolls, and many equipment are on sale! For more information, see my previous post.

The profession system was improved greatly. All levels of every profession now need half the amount of experience, and all crafting gives double experience. The amount of fatigue you have each day has been increased from 100 to 200. Fatigue replenishes itself faster now. You can now buy an Advanced or Expert ticket from Menz for the new hidden mining/herb rooms. Also, when crafting, you can now make more than 1 item at once. For example, if you have the materials to make 10 bronze plates, instead of making each one separately, just input 10 when it asks and you’ll make them all at once!

Many, many, MANY new items are now available to be crafted. Things like the White Angelic Bless ring, which gives 10 to all stats and 12 attack, and this Dominator Pendant, which gives 35 to all stats, 10% HP and MP, 5 attack and magic attack, and 15 speed and 10 jump! There are even potions that give invincibility, droprate/experience increases, and resistance to states!

The terrain of Nautilus Harbour has completely changed. Every single map has been reorganized! For example, here is the new interior of the Nautilus. In Henesys, the terrain was slightly changed. Two new monsters have been added in the Golem Temple area, Fire Mix Golem and Ice Mix Golem.

The third unicorn pet was added, Unicorn Genie! If you have all 3 Unicorn pets, you will gain access to the Pegasus Riding skill.

A new world will released with Cannon Shooter, it is called Legend. Another world will be released soon, when Mercedes is available to the regular server.

Please check past the cut for the skills of the legendary Hero Mercedes and more information about this patch!

Raising a Cannon Shooter or Mercedes to level 50 will give you the Legend Ring. This ring starts off with only 1 to all stats and 1 attack/magic attack, but level it up and it ends up with 4 to all stats and 3 attack/magic attack! It can be transferred within the account! Cannon Shooters also get a choice of 1 Special Mastery Book at level 70.

Something special about Mercedes is that she does not use arrows. Well, her Shield slot is replaced with her Magic Arrows. These are very special as they never run out, and most of all, they can be potentialed.

Mercedes Tutorial

Thanks to Spadow for the video! As you can see, Mercedes’ tutorial begins as a level 200 in the past, similar to Aran. She meets Freed and Afrien, and then goes to her town of Eurel. Soon, the whole town is frozen and she too is encased in ice…

    Hey, I know you don’t have access to Kmst right now so this might be hard for you to answer, but where is the new Legend’s town situated? I heard Victoria Island but I’d like to know where abouts 😮

    Also, I saw in the patch notes MANY quests were revamped (or possibly added o.O), What’s up with that?


    • Max
      June 30, 2011 at 5:20 pm

      There’s a portal that leads to the path to it somewhere in Ellinia 🙂

      That has to do with the complete reorganization of quests on Victoria Island that I talked about in my Summer Update post. Basically, now the quests are really good exp for those under 30~

      Well, I have a bowmaster as well, and seriously, this class looks WAY better than both bowman jobs right now. They beat out Marksmen’s mobbing skills by far, they have awesome mobility, and they also have Hurricane along with Sniping. I think there will have to be many nerfs…

  10. theXcited
    June 30, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    I REALLY LOVE THIS CLASS, but i think i have to say it…. it is kinda OP. Not extremely OP but a little. It gets 70Attack bonus from skills, unless it has a multiplier that isnt very high then that a bit much o:. But as i said before its not super OP. I look forward to making one and the skills look VERY original. It has many air based attacks which some other classes have but these attacks are actually based on how high you can jump, thats something nexon never did. Overall 9.5/10

      You haven’t played/heard about the Evan story? 😮

      Basically Afrien shields Freed from the Black Mage’s freezing curse and is frozen himself. But he leaves an Onyx Dragon egg that is hidden by Freed. Then Evan comes along and finds the egg and forms a spirit pact with it.

  13. June 30, 2011 at 8:20 pm

    Wow, this class is great. I’m saving db mask and evan glass for it. I hope they wont nerf it

    I’m a marksman and this is just…i’m feeling bad for both the adventure archer classes right now 😦 Not only is our snipe (which had been our best bossing skill) crappy post chaos, but now there’s a better version of us out there, not only do they have the best bossing skills, but they also the better mobbing skills (which was something marksman could be proud of with our pierce)…not to mention all the other great boosts they have );

  17. Alilatias
    June 30, 2011 at 8:42 pm


    I love the skill design! The skill design is amazing, both in terms of looks and effects! Especially all of that chaining with Charge Drive, and Unicorn Spike allowing my party members to inflict more damage against the affected monsters (instead of having a Rage/SE ripoff skill like I was almost expecting Nexon to do). I waited two years for the Archer Legend, and now I can’t wait!

    It’s a shame that she had to have a Hurricane-type skill though, as it doesn’t fit in with the playing style at all (moving extremely quickly while attacking). I’m expecting major nerfs too, but I’m already sold!

  18. Really?
    June 30, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    Ok we archers finally get a nice update(jump) and then you bring the terror we had with (wild hunters) back again with Mercedes.. wth?
    Why must everything this class do hit 6-8monsters 3-6 times? Every damn skill. And it gains hp from the attacks and it passively gains 10% hp and mp every 4secs? So i should def. quit my Bowmaster. There is absolutely no balance to the archer class.

      I acctualy dont think this class will be nerfed to bad, if you look at the way it plays it will take some skill to be good at it, that and the dmg it does isnt extreamly op as it, sure some of its skills need to be a little tweeked but i actually think they did a pretty good rough start with this one.

      No. It doesn’t do that at all. People with no understanding of game mechanics and are unable to see the big picture need to stop talking. Flashiness does not equal power.

      Compare the Bowman Jump updates to Mercedes. Mercedes occupies a spot in between Bowmasters and Marksmen (better mobbing than Bowmasters but worse 1 VS 1, better 1 VS 1 than Marksmen but worse mobbing than Marksmen), and doesn’t even have a party skill to boot. Mercedes also doesn’t have a max HP increasing skill.
