kMSt ver. 1.2.391 – Mercedes Buffs & Thief Nerfs?

It looks like we won’t have to farm Legend Coins for the AP Reset! On July 9, there will be a Hot Time event where everyone will receive an AP Reset! You can also get some personality potions, a Legend Coin, and a Mysterious Love Letter, which gives some fame. NX items will be given out as well! Will you be lucky and get a Protect Shield, Miracle Cubes, or some other Cash item? Log on at 2:30 pm on Saturday and see~

New skill changes have appeared, and there’s even one for the forgotten thief class?

  • Shadow Partner/Mirror Imaging: can no longer do more damage than  the original damage it is copying.

Hmm… why would they add in this random change? When will the real thief and pirate rebalancing come? Only time will tell… There was also another change to the other classes, INT no longer has an effect on your maximum MP (unless you are a mage). To compensate, the formula for MP gain upon levelling has been changed.

You can only stay in the mining/herbalism maps for 10 minutes, rather than the 20 minutes that was previously announced.

The durability system has been renewed! All tablets now have a fixed 70% chance of passing. Failing one no longer breaks your item! Tablets now add more stats than regular scrolls.

Upon logging on, everyone receives a free Character Slot Coupon! (unless you have 15 slots) Another coupon will be available in the future through an event!

Mercedes’ magic arrows have been renewed~ They look much more magical now, haha. Also, the multiplier of the dual bowgun has been adjusted. Does that mean it is higher or lower?! Anyways, go past the cut to see Mercedes’ skill changes~

  • Spirit Infusion: (previously called Soul Purify) No longer drains HP. Now increases damage and critical chance for a certain period of time.
    At max level, increases damage and critical chance by 15% for 180 seconds.
  • Final Shot: The range of this skill has been increased, and the damage has been increased from 75% to 90%.
  • Lightning Flare: The range of this skill has been increased, and the damage of this skill has been increased from 150% to 181%.
  • Elemental Knight: Instead of attacking a monster that you may have attacked then moved away from, they will now attack the monster that you are currently attacking.
  • Legendary Spear: Passive effect of raising Leap Tornado’s damage has been increased from 20% to 30%.
  • Highkick Demolition: The range of this skill has been increased, and the damage has been increased from 147% to 176%. The animation has been renewed.
  • Ancient Spirit: Instead of increasing critical chance by 15%, it now increases max HP by 1500.
  • Defense Break: Chance to pierce defense has been increased from 30% to 40%.
  • Ishtar’s Ring: The animation has been renewed.

    I HATE what the did to soul purify
    The class already has low hp and now there is no way to heal…….
    Apart from potions
    They better cinque it back

      Now they’re rightfully squishy like any other bowman class, and they still get more extra HP from Ancient Spirit. Can’t really complain. 😛

      HP Drain with a Hurricane-like move is broken. Beautiful… but broken. I’m glad they fixed this.

      They still restore 10% hp/mp every 10 seconds though, it’s pretty good. I’d rather have the extra damage+critical than hp restore. You can always buy potions it’s not like pots are that expensive and they changed it to 300 pots/slot so it isn’t all bad.

  2. July 5, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    Soul Purify isn’t as much of a necessity as it was before. Kinda sucks right now.

    It’s great that they changed the colour of high kick demolition because after all it looks like a wind-based attack.

    So due to the new mp formula, newer characters will have more mp than a character made before?…

    • Max
      July 5, 2011 at 3:27 pm

      I think so…

    I liked the old Ishtar’s Ring animation a lot better, but I can see why they changed it. It was a bit too close in color to Hurricane before.

    They should have made it blue instead, though.

    • Knite
      July 5, 2011 at 6:22 pm

      I agree, but not blue (wildhunters afterall)

      • Alilatias
        July 5, 2011 at 9:46 pm

        Sometimes I forget Wild Hunters even exist. :/

        Uh, okay… How about purple? Or a darker red?

    “INT no longer has an effect on your maximum MP (unless you are a mage). To compensate, the formula for MP gain upon levelling has been changed.”

    I guess no more HP washing in the future for all classes? Death of HP washing? All ranged classes and Mercedes remain Low HP forever? =/

    What happens if you have a surplus of MP under the new system, can you still turn it into HP via AP reset? will int affect map MP if you pump AP directly into MP?

    How much mp do you gain per level as a pirate now in KMST?

    • Max
      July 5, 2011 at 7:16 pm

      Sorry I can’t answer any of those questions D:

      The only information I have about this new formula is the stuff in the post, which was from the patch notes… and I can’t test MP gain because I don’t have a Tespia account right now… hopefully I get into the next term~

    I like what they did too Highkick Demolition but Ishtar’s Ring? It has some Gold soup insect color (lol)

    You know, I like your blog Max, but your constant updating and editing to your posts is kinda annoying.

    I like to read all my information at once

    • Max
      July 5, 2011 at 10:56 pm

      Sorry D:

      It’s just that I like to release information fast and then more stuff appears that doesn’t really fit under another post so I just add it in… I’ll try and wait more before posting so that doesn’t happen!

    • Yurifically
      July 6, 2011 at 12:11 am

      Um HELLO? He’s already posting and trying his hard to post these information for us too see. Now your saying It’s annoying If he edits? Go to some other blog. Max tries his best. Of course there will be information coming out after he posts a new topic after like a few hours or so. Don’t say something so stupid.

      • MonarchVV
        July 6, 2011 at 1:16 am

        I doubt that what I said was stupid. How would you react if a chapter of a story kept on changing every time you read it?

        Would you honestly keep rereading the same thing, even if it was just a little edit? Spending my time combing through the entire post repeatedly to find new info is rather bothersome, y’know?

        • Yurifically
          July 6, 2011 at 1:27 am

          Well this isn’t a fantasy world were a Chapter Book edits on its own…. Well is it his fault that something new comes? He wants to show the thing he already know to show us and then he finds something new and has to edit. Or would you just wait for hours and hours and get bored of waiting until you see everything?

          • MonarchVV
            July 6, 2011 at 1:46 am

            That was just an example, no need to nitpick. And yeah, I would rather wait a little bit longer to read all of the details at once rather than reread something for a little extra info.

    i am confused about the new thief nerf. wat does it mean? shadow partner only have 50% of original damage so how is it going to be higher then the damge its copying

      sounds more like bug fixes to me

    • Max
      July 6, 2011 at 10:08 am

      There’s some skills that make it hit higher, such as Dual Blade’s Final Cut and stuff.

    Good job on keeping us posted Max! I Check back here frequently for updates now. I think you’re doing awesome, blogging isn’t easy lol. Also Ishtars Ring DOES look a lot like. . .dragonfly wings? I guess that does fit the whole nature/fairy/elf thing she has going on. Personally, I think that’s an improvement over the huge thing that it was previously, it’s more well drawn.

        Fantastic blog you have.

        One tip (that you probably wont need). If you get popular as a blog, dont get big headed and feel like youre insanely important. That is, dont become Spadow.

        • Alilatias
          July 7, 2011 at 2:36 am

          I wouldn’t worry about that. I don’t think Spadow looked bigheaded and considered himself insanely important. This is coming from someone who lurked at his blog since the KMS Balrog Boss days, long before it went mainstream.

          I’d be WAY more worried about gaining unwanted followers – In Spadow’s case, the flood of Basiltards since the time of KMS Evan/Dual Blade era who preached everything on these blogs as if it were the gospel.

          Unfortunately, something like this is inevitable – everything popular eventually draws in bad people. It’s the sad way of things.

    with the sp/mi nerf, does this mean that shads wont be able to hit 999999 anymore :O

    I have a question about the full ap reset thing. I heard that you can only hold up to 255 ability points. How does the reset thing work? Cause people said that it can’t exceed over 255.

    • Max
      September 19, 2011 at 3:59 pm

      It can exceed that limit! I know because I had way more than 255 AP when I used mine 🙂
