kMSt ver. 1.2.396 – Demon Slayer Skill Changes!

Many skill changes await! There was also a lot of storyline added, Demon Slayer has quests until level 140! There’s even one at level 200! Van Leon and Orca are both a part of the Demon Slayer’s storylines. The tutorial has not been added yet, for some reason. I believe they’re making another anime-style trailer to show at the beginning of the tutorial just like Mercedes.

 Force Shield of Patience: maxDF +20, DEF +10, MDEF +5 (level 10)
 Force Shield of Will: maxHP +150, maxDF +50, DEF +30, MDEF +15 (level 30)
 Force Shield of Power: STR +7, DEX +7, maxHP +350, maxDF +80, DEF +60, MDEF +30 (level 70)
 Ultimate Force Shield: STR +12, DEX +12, maxHP +600, maxDF +110, DEF +85, MDEF +45 (level 120)

Note, these are all unlevelled stats. If you level them, they increase only the stats that they already have (ie. the first two shields will never get STR or DEX) and the maxDF does not increase upon level up. The max level is 4 for the first three and 9 for the last one. They are all untradeable and cannot be scrolled or potentialed.

These Force Shields are the only way to change the amount of Demon Force you have, other than advancing. At level 10, you’ll have 30 DF, level 30 will be 60 DF, level 70 will be 90 DF, and 120 will give you 120 DF.

Stats for scepters and the skill changes are below!

 Doomed Scepter: +29 attack (level 10)
 Dignity Scepter: +49 attack (level 30)
 Assurity Scepter: +69 attack (level 50)
 Demon Bane: +83 attack (level 70)
 Evil Bane: +108 attack (level 120)

These are all untradeable, fast (5), require no DEX, and have 7 slots. You get both this and a Force Shield when you get to the specific level required. And now what you’ve all been waiting for, the skill changes!

    All these increased HP Consumptions making me have second thoughts bout these Demon Slayers, looks like they gonna have even more difficulty bossing as well, any idea on how much HP they got? Cause if it ain’t high it aint gonna be good for them.

        Lmao they hav 10k hp at 4th job. They warriors after all. The hp consumption doesnt bother me.

    • Ddragonkill
      August 7, 2011 at 12:38 pm

      dude theyll be great at bossing because no mp and lots of hp

      • August 12, 2011 at 2:47 pm

        … Not really.
        They may not use MP pots, but they have to constantly restore Demon Force with the slash thing, so even if they use their fastest move, they will drain the DF faster, thus lowering DPS.

    Those who are wondering if they have high HP or not.
    They do, if you saw Spadow’s video of third job Demon Slayer
    His 119 Demon Slayer had 10k HP. w/o Hyper Body and its clean.
    Max I think you should upload Spadow’s videos of his Demon Slayer

    Its looks like they got nerfed pretty bad, i mean they seem like an average class now or maybe weaker? any1 think so or have different ideas?

    • Megadeus
      July 28, 2011 at 5:45 pm

      The nerfs don’t look that bad. If you look, it just seems like most of the things that got nerfed simply became more costly in terms of HP and DF – which is good, because a lot of those skills have high dmg%s as well as high target and hit numbers.
      Also, the post above you notes how much HP a Demon Slayer would have… which is expected, considering they’re Warriors. Also, look closely, the ones that take upwards of 300 HP (the dangerously-HP consuming ones) are the type of skill you wouldn’t be spamming since they take so much HP, DF, and cast more slowly – they’re finishers. The ones that take only a little HP to use (<200) are the ones you'll cast more often, and let's face it, at most levels you'll take that kind of damage anyways.

        July 28, 2011 at 11:54 pm

        I agree, but if so,,, then i feel like they should increase the max amount of DF, now because most skills waste hp and some of the main skills, (such as demon breath and demon explosion) have their DF usage increased, after this i feel like their restricting the demon slayer game play to demon slash only, because of the high consumption of SOME OF THE MAIN moves which demon slayers use. I still like this class but i feel instead of increasing DF by 30 each job adv it should be by increased 40, i feel like the Max DF is a little low. But again i might be wrong, im just putting my opinion out here.

        • Momiji
          July 29, 2011 at 12:04 am

          I would say the DF amounts are fine. Given the fact that against bosses, which is where you’ll want to dump all your skills anyways, you recover 5 more Force than regular monsters and deal 10% extra damage (I believe it was). I personally think it’s also fine given the fact that they also have a DF equivalent of Arch Mages Infinity, giving them infinite DF for a short duration. And again, like stated the high HP cost skills are not meant to be spammed, their your finishers/show-offs. The low HP skills will probably be used actively with the basic-attack combo in training.

        • December 23, 2011 at 10:16 pm

          well there is a skill that lets u use infinite DF for about 30 secs i think so thats good

    • ???
      July 28, 2011 at 5:48 pm

      Demon Slayer is probably around the same as Mercedes after she was nerfed also; still a bit OP, but not as godly as before. I

      John :

      I lol’d. There’s already a Mage Resistance, so I can’t imagine what else it could be other than a Warrior.

    This is a buff.. I don’t see what you guys are talking about. If you have played a Demon Slayer in kMSt after this patch you would know. Bossing is better for them now and also dont know any 140+ person without auto hp/mp

  9. Reza
    July 28, 2011 at 9:00 pm

    As omar said this is more of a buff than a nerf DPS wise however the HP concerns me.. also the fact they cant be hp washed (Hasnt HP wash entirely been removed with the legend update? I realy don’t hope so) But god emon Impact: damage was decreased from 600% to 400%. Hit count was increased from 4 to 5. Now ignores 50% PDR if attacking a boss monster. is the most boss skill ever lmfao

  10. July 28, 2011 at 10:12 pm

    I’m not really phased by the changes. In fact, I like them. The more things that make them unattractive to the masses makes them all the better a class. The HP costs will be a ton of fun.

  11. MrDingy
    July 28, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    .. basically the only thing that got nerfed was that they consume more hp? soft. i can deal with that 😉 as long as they are still bad ass looking i am not giving up on this smexy class

  12. MrDingy
    July 28, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    Demon Impact: damage was decreased from 600% to 400%. Hit count was increased from 4 to 5. Now ignores 50% PDR if attacking a boss monster.

    ^.. do they still have their 30% extra damage + 100% crit..? o.o

    The changes improves Demon dmg against boss, and faster n more absorbing force demon slash? AWESOME. Also, they have quest till 140, this will keep me occupied when I’m bored of training. Really looking forward to it cming to MSEA, hope it outs at dec2012 or I wont be able to focus on my major exams.

    Nice that the Slayer (I’m omitting “Demon” because “Demon Slayer” implies he kills demons, which isn’t exactly correct) has quests up till Lv140.

    Now if only Nexon would do the same for everyone else to spice up gameplay a little, so to speak.

    I don’t know why people are getting so worked up over the cost of hp for skills. Demon slayers have a party skill that gives party memebers and themselves a drain ability like arans combo drain, so the fact that skills use hp isn’t that big a deal. I for one am excited to try this class seeing as how my favorite classes are arans and bams and this is somewhat a combination of the two. Also I love their mobility.

  18. GreenTeas
    July 29, 2011 at 2:13 am

    I wish they’d make the other adventurer classes look as attractive as this class. Spamming ground smash and power strike (etc.) looks like joke compared to demon slayer 2nd and 3rd job skills.

        Dear Ignorant Players,

        Please note that NO individual class is exactly OP but a bit more powerful in the eyes of the public. Quit hating on these new classes just because their skills are more appealing than ur main character’s. Just because a class seems better that ur main’s doesn’t mean that you can hate on it. Grow up because nexon doesnt have to keep updating. It isn’t a necessity that Nexon has to keep adding new classes. Just remember that you dont have to be afraid of progress.

          Dear Mr.Ignorant please look up my channel on YouTube “DrChowder” you will see my overpowered Demon Slayer which is clean, ans has no funds yet I can solo Pap in 4 mins and do 320k+ with Demon Impact at lvl 1. I don’t hate this class, its quite the opposite. I adore classes with lots of HP so this will do me well.

          I suggest you stfu

            Dear Baroken,

            I did not use that to reply directly to you. Iwas trying to tell people that when there is a new class it is most likely to be nerfed later on to be more balanced. I just dont like it when people call a class OP right as they first come out like for mechs for example. Have you seen the youtube video when the mech owned pap quicker than ur demon slayer? That is what nerfs are for. Now do you see any mechs solo pap that quicky lately? The answer is “NO” because mechs got nerfed. I now hope that you see my side of the picture.

    This class seems like Frankenstein in Noblesse ;D

  28. July 31, 2011 at 7:31 am

    I think that this is just a class to be deifferent and similar to its hero counterpart (the Aran). Aran has the combo system while DS have the force system. The both also require the spamming of the attack keys. They are different in their combative skills as well as their transportational skills. As arans have combat step, DS has wing related skills (double jump, high jump, and double jump). I also beleive that they share some similar qualities with Mercedes like a powerful move that hits a lot of monsters but isn’t an Ultimate. They both also seem as if they were opposites as Mercedes seems a more celestial as Demons Slayer seems a bit demonic. Personally, I dont care if Demon slayer is kind of demonic, I’m still making it as well for Mercedes having a Unicorn/Pegasus mount. I can’t wait to see what the Resistance/Hero Theives are all about. I also cant wait till nexon comes up with third additions to the archer class(adventurers of course), and maybe, just maybe will they come up with fourth add-ons to to the warriors,mages,archers,theives, and pirates with just different bases and different fighting styles. Now, after reading this comment, you may think…. ” Dam! this guy has no life” well think again. I’m just here stating what i think about this and what is yet to come. So please reconsider making any rude comments that are inside your head and keep the to yourself? ( if there are any). Thank you and have a wonderful day =3
