kMSt ver. 1.2.390 – Mercedes Skill Changes

A new patch was released~ That was pretty fast, Mercedes became open just yesterday!

A new item has been added, called the Innocent Scroll. It comes in a 70% (with 30% of breaking if failed) version and a 20% version. It completely resets the stats of an item, the potential, and the levels (if you can level it up).

Mercedes now receives 5 SP at advancement, since before this patch, she was missing 5 SP to max every skill in first job. And now for the skill changes!

  • Cross Piercing: Instead of hitting 165% 2 times, it now hits 83% 4 times.
  • Soul Purify: No longer heals your MP.
  • Unicorn Spike: Now has a 100% chance of critical. Weakened effect now lasts for 10 attacks, and 20 on bosses.
  • Ishtar’s Ring: You cannot move while using this skill anymore. Now passively increases damage of Strike Dualshot. Prerequisite of 20 Strike Dualshot was added. At max level, increases damage of Strike Dualshot by 25%.
  • Legendary Spear: Damage has been increased from 520% to 572%. Now passively increases damage of Leap Tornado by 20%. Prerequisite of 10 Leap Tornado has been added.
  • Defense Break: Now has a 30% chance of ignoring 100% defense.
What do you think about these changes?

    i want the mercedes in Gms soooo badly.

    Before soul purify can heal hp and moving while using ishtar’s ring really is annoyed by other archer class! But after it changes to cant move while using ishtar’s ring i think is better now?

    They clearly must not be as overpowered as people think they are, if their skills are still getting tweaks like this.

    Soul Purify restoring MP and full firing speed Ishtar’s Ring while walking was ridiculous, though. The rest seem rather justified.

    just asking about the scroll, does it reset an item to unidentified or totally clean unscrolled?

      Completely clean, no scrolls, no potential, nothing.

        Which doesn’t sound useful at first, until you realize that it can probably be used on rare and normally unsalvagable equipment such as Immortal Pharoah Belts and Blackfist Capes that were screwed over by Chaos Scrolling.

    What they ought to do as well is tweak the Legend skill “Elf’s Recovery”. I understand that it will only slow down pot burn and they have less HP than real Bowmen, but 10% every 4 seconds is ridiculous when compared to what Heroes have (and this is a 3rd job skill too): 80 HP and MP every 4 seconds. Can anyone say “A moron came up with that HP value?” It’s not even like 80HP per 4 seconds is helpful; but that’s not the point. Point is that 10% is a lot, especially considering it’s a Beginner skill! Thank God that their Dual Hurricane was rooted to 1 spot, maneuverability for that skill is absurd unless the class is just really awful (i.e. Wild Hunters). And finally, I especially detest this class since they have a Dual Hurricane and Dual Snipe; that’s just wrong on so many levels. It’s basically an all-offense class with little backing it up, and furthermore, lacking party skills. Utterly repulsive…
    On a brighter(?) side to it, it would be comical to see one jump/roll right into a boss and get killed.

      1: That Dual Hurricane is not really a Dual Hurricane like we all thought it was.
      2: That Dual Snipe is still weaker than Crossbowmaster’s Snipe, and it has a longer cooldown to boot.
      3: They don’t have party skills. But they do have a debuff skill (Legendary Spear) that, while not very useful in training situations, is invaluable in boss fights since it’s something the ENTIRE EXPEDITION can take advantage of. What’s an example of another debuff skill that is invaluable in boss fights? Threaten.
      4: For god’s sake everyone, if you don’t know how [censored] works, don’t talk about overpowered and crap. Please do look at this:


      Mercedes is weaker at mobbing than Crossbowmasters, and barely stronger at single target than Bowmasters (which is something that’s probably going to be addressed in later KMST patches anyways). She also doesn’t have a max HP increasing skill (and all the healing in the world won’t help you if you get one-shotted, even moreso if Water Shield gets dispelled), AND her training consists of running up close and personal against mobs.

    Whats the difference between 70% and 20% Innocent scroll? Thanks in advance.

      Um, the 20% has no chance to break your item.

    • July 3, 2011 at 9:26 am

      20% scrolls are for people who can afford White Scrolls.
      70% is for people who think they’re lucky and their item won’t explode on them.

    What does it mean by resetting your stats? Slots and everything?

    • Max
      July 5, 2011 at 12:40 pm

      Yep, it will turn into an entirely clean item. No scrolls used on it, no levels, no potential!

        And all stats/wa revert back to pre-scroll stats?

            So if my weapon was 113 attack (above average) pre-scrolling, pre-leveling, it would go back to 113, or would it go to 105 (average)?

            Not sure, I guess it would randomize it again.
