kMS ver. 1.2.140 – My Experiences & Tips for Ascension!

September 27, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Quest Specialist medal get~ While finishing quests for this medal, I nostalgia’d hard. Doing the old jump quests (I actually did them all! …except Sabitrama’s), going through areas I otherwise would never have gone to (Wooden and Rocky Masks, the best training spot for 20~30!). All in all, it was pretty fun!

And it also gave me a chance to try out the Victoria Island reorganized quests. Each town has a specific quest line that takes you from level 10 to 30, giving you equipment along the way. I can honestly say in terms of annoying-ness, from least to most, it goes Henesys > Nautilus > Ellinia > Perion > Kerning City. Kerning City has soooo many “kill 200 ____” quests and it’s such a pain to keep going back to the deep subway or swamp.

I also  got my Silver Mane mount! Although I don’t use it much, it’s still nice to have!

Well, about the stuff that actually came out this patch, I haven’t actually done a lot of it. Mu Lung Dojo takes way too long to finish (I could do Easy Mode, I guess) and I never get enough people to start Monster Carnival! However, I’ll keep trying in order to get 150 wins for the Carnival Winner medal!

Look past the cut for tips on some of the new things coming out in Ascension!

Even though the new medal window lets you get back medals you have dropped, don’t overdo it! The price increases each time you get a medal. I think it caps out at either 1 million or 10 million mesos. Either way, it’s a lot!

In the Romeo and Juliet party quest, it can quite possibly be the most amazing experience from 70 to early 120’s.

How? Get to the stage with the Neo Roids and the two ‘jump quest’ rooms and just grind, grind like you’ve never grinded before! Some people stay until there’s like 5 minutes left then finish the rest of the party quest, but some grind for the whole time. Either way, great place to train! However, watch out for people who use you to get inside then expel you! They fixed this in a later patch in kMS by not allowing party leaders to expel inside a party quest, but I don’t know if GMS will get that right now.

In the Dragon Rider party quest, I don’t know if this is a problem only with kMS or not, but you should change channels after every party quest. Why? Because sometimes the first boss, Dragonica, gets glitched and doesn’t spawn. It might seem like a good thing but you lose out on the experience from it and from your completion reward! Your reward is decreased if you don’t defeat Dragonica.

In the Kenta in Danger party quest (one of three new party quests!), when you have to protect Kenta from the monsters for 3 minutes, you can just start the timer and have your entire party jump down to the floor and wait there. He won’t get hurt and you won’t waste your potions! You do however miss out on the experience from defeating waves of monsters, so some people choose to fight.

In the Prison Break party quest (another new party quest!), the maze is the only tricky part (other than the jump quests for some people I guess).

Here’s the trick: each room has a number! The exit to the maze is located in room 6. To get to room 6, you can of course randomly go through the maze, but there is a more efficient way! In room 1, one of the portals there will lead to room 5, and one of the portals in room 5 will lead to room 6! Therefore, have one of your party members go to each portal in room 1 and tell everyone which goes to 5. Then in 5, do the same! Use the reindeer outside of each portal as a marker, kill them only if you’re going into the portal of the platform they guard.

        Nooooooooo!!!! Well did prices skyrocket? And we might not get it because we have free speech in US. So might work in maple? I can only dream.

        Lol Max how come ABR’s are only 30m in kms still?

        • Max
          September 28, 2011 at 5:21 pm

          Because we have a lot of botters/people farming for them.

        I’m curious as to the specific effects of this–a lot of people have been speculating that it hurts the regular user more than the botter, but nobody can really tell since it’s only just been implemented. Did you even notice the effects? Did it reduce botting at all?

        • Max
          September 28, 2011 at 10:50 pm

          I really don’t like the system. I can’t hunt at lower level places for things like the Angelic Bless recipe anymore 😦

          It hasn’t affected botting much at all. Botters simply kill themselves multiple times when they’re about to level, so they can continue hunting there.

    Thanks for the advice, Max. On another note, is it possible to turn the Mercedes ears off if they don’t look quite right with some hairs?

    • Max
      September 27, 2011 at 9:07 pm

      There is a Cash item that removes them, Carta’s Pearl. It can also give elf ears to anyone without them.

    Do you know how much EXP you get from grinding from the Neo Roids? How you’re explaining it to us, it seems like it’s A lot of EXP. Also, thanks for the tips!

    Is there any weapon covers for mercedes? It really doesn’t look appealing seeing two giant vine-like things in front of my character. I’m asking for when it comes to gms

    • Max
      September 28, 2011 at 7:41 am

      Some items in packages that came out after Mercedes can cover them, not sure of specifics though, sorry :S

      You can move to a shop in any channel, and it shows you the channel/room of each shop.

    Is the pink-haired girl wearing Kenta’s Goggles? Or are those another pair of glasses/hat?

    Ok,nice blog and 1 question:after jump does dual blade player can’t play them?

    • Max
      September 28, 2011 at 7:42 am

      I’m not sure what you mean? :S

      • Forad
        September 28, 2011 at 9:37 am

        I think what he means is if players can’t create a dual blade job after jump update?

    • monblank
      September 28, 2011 at 9:48 am

      We never have job creation restrictions like kms, so no.

    What’s this I’m hearing there taking out legend?

    The stat or the creation?

    • Alilatias
      September 28, 2011 at 3:42 pm

      I’m pretty sure they’re referring to the Legend shop, which had stuff like AP resets for Legend coins that you could get throughout the entire 4 or 5 part patch.

      • Max
        September 28, 2011 at 4:20 pm

        That was removed too ^^

    • Max
      September 28, 2011 at 4:20 pm

      Yeah, they have a limited creation time. Yesterday was the last day you could create a Cannon Shooter, Mercedes, or Demon Slayer. I’m sure they’ll come back later though, like Dual Blade (for kMS).

    max what 3rd job skills would u recomend starting on first. i am a ranger at lv 93 but soon today gms will be receiving sp resets. i currently have maxed thrust inferno and evasion boost. do have any advice for a fellow bowmen now that the skills will be changing?

    • Max
      September 28, 2011 at 4:21 pm

      I maxed everything except Strafe (since Hurricane is better). I was already around 11X when Jump came so I didn’t really have any order in skills. D:

    Go BattleMages! oh that reminds me, i saw on yours and shakars blogs that BaMs will get monster rider skill in jump, was it true?

    • Max
      September 28, 2011 at 4:39 pm

      No, they don’t. And I don’t think I wrote that o_o;

      • Snowboy8
        September 28, 2011 at 7:52 pm

        You didnt right that, nor did shakar. BaMs are stuck using Yaura+tele or event mounts. (BaMs can use event mounts unless it states they need monster rider). I hope i can do the pq, im in Nova, its soooo empty >.<

        (what lv r u max?)

        • Max
          September 28, 2011 at 8:07 pm

          I’m level 179, almost 180! 🙂

      Spadow mentioned that you can now get the mount after 300 pqs from the Hoblin PQ, which was a nice addiction for BaM’s, since they don’t get mounts, but that’s the only mention I’ve seen of anything.

      • Snowboy8
        September 28, 2011 at 7:53 pm

        BaMs cant ride the hyena from Hob pq. it requires the monster rider skill which we dont get. (i got one one my BaM…. useless >.> )

        • monblank
          September 28, 2011 at 7:56 pm

          So you got the mount that is almost impossible to get and you couldn’t use it?
          That must suck…

  19. October 1, 2011 at 6:09 pm
