kMSt ver. 1.2.406 – Resistance, Aran, and Evan Reorganization!

Part one of the series of reorganization patches has been released to Tespia! The Resistance, Aran, and Evan’s skills were changed. That’s not all, there’s also an Ellin Forest expansion!

Read on for skill changes and the other new things added in this patch!

All skill values are from the max level. Some skills are a bit weird, like giving 8 critical damage. I’m assuming this means percent, but they forgot it when they were adding it in. Since I’m not sure, I just left those without the % sign.

Ellin Forest has been reorganized! As you can see, it now has a world map! There is also a questline now, where Spiegelmann sends you to investigate the mysterious area and you end up helping Helena to protect the Altaire Camp!

 

 

There are a couple of new monsters, as well as two new bosses~ The one on the left is called Chow, and the one on the right is called the Fairy Queen, Epineah! She drops Epineah’s Ring, which gives 2 to all stats, 50 HP and MP, 45 defense and magic defense, 1 attack and magic attack, and 15 accuracy and avoid (level 105, untradeable).

You can get the Ellin Forest’s Guardian medal from finishing this quest line, which gives 4 to all stats, 160 HP and MP, 90 defense and magic defense, 1 attack and magic attack, 40 accuracy and avoid, 7 speed, and 1 PvP damage.

    

The Maple Union (which I previously called Maple Alliance, the word can be translated both ways but a romanized item confirms it is union) quests have been expanded on~  There are now quests from level 15 to 74, after which you join the Union!

Battle Mages, Wild Hunters, Mechanics, Aran, and Evan can do a special set of quests to get the above weapons. They give (in order): 105 magic attack, 93 attack, 70 attack, 97 attack, and 105 magic attack. They’re all level 75 and they have 7 slots.

Also, for those of you who lag a lot, they’ve also added in an option to change the quality of skill effects!

As for the Cash Shop, there are three new things. The first is the new Pink Bean pet which is now on sale, it’s a multipet too. Then there’s the Wing Master Orca set, which you might want to get if you’re a Black Wings fan. Finally, there’s a new type of shop!

It’s the Old Lady Stand, and it acts just like a regular hired merchant except for one difference.

There’s a new tab called Buying, and the shop owner can search up, then list any items they want to buy. You input the amount you want to buy and how much you want to buy it for, and the money is automatically taken away from your inventory. Then, shop goers can enter your shop, and sell you the item without you having to find/trade them! When you close your shop, you’ll receive the items you have bought this way.

You can see in this shop, the owner wants to buy 1 Red Potion for 99 mesos.

P.S. I got my Crow hair, along with a new outfit!

    I love the changes, specially to the quests.

    Are you adding them to your Union guide?

    Also, you forgot to add that Blaze skill of Evans attacks 8 monsters now.

    I’m sad Magic shield is now a passive skill.

    Nice job, Max.

      wild hunters’ hurricane hits for more damage, more shots per second, AND they can move around while doing it. corsairs and bow masters also have a rapid fire skills. why dont you take a look at all the damage formulas before bitching about mechs and making yourself look like a jackass.

    Great job on the article.

    Nice changes! 😀

    But I’m wondering, Max:

    Say, for my BaM, if I spent a lot of mesos to get lvl 30 Advanced Dark Aura, and now the skill is being movied to 3rd Job… Will my SP be moved to a lvl 30 Advanced Blue Aura or something, so I save some mesos?

    I know they’ve transfered SP and given some free Skill Books in the past, I’m just wondering if they’re gonna do it for this, too. :O

    • Max
      October 22, 2011 at 12:01 am

      Looking at Fiel’s extractions, Advanced Blue Aura is an entirely new skill and Advanced Dark Aura was deleted, so I think you’re just gonna get the 30 SP back into your pool.

    • Eliseo
      October 22, 2011 at 12:03 am

      Also looking at Fiel’s extractions, there are 100% mastery books for all the revamped classes. So I guess the Ascension/Jump event of us choosing a 100% mastery book will repeat. No wasting your meso.

    Mechanic’s didn’t get Physical Training or Pirate Training?
    I’m disappointed.
    if they going to add it in during Thief and Pirate Revamp fine.
    At least give Mechanics the skill that gives +30 Str and Dex like Cannon Shooter.

    • Arrol
      October 24, 2011 at 6:32 pm

      It’s called Physical Training for a reason.

    • Celan
      October 25, 2011 at 4:46 am

      >They just sit around in their mech
      >They do physical training

      That’s making sense. They could rename it to “Electronic Upgrade”, because the Mech guy just presses buttons.

    • Max
      October 22, 2011 at 12:12 am

      There’s no like skill description so I can’t say, but I think it has something to do with gliding… (sort of like Demon Slayers? They did use the Demon Jump skill icon as a place holder)

      • Bob
        October 22, 2011 at 12:40 am

        Speaking of Demon Slayers since they have skills that sue HP does that mean we can die from using a skill? If we were to mass spam the skill so we go down to 0 HP or do we stop at 1 hp?

        • Yurifically
          October 22, 2011 at 3:43 am

          If you get hit while doing the skill, your HP will go down more. But If your distanced, your HP won’t drop to 0 because your going to end up using all your Demon Force instead of having 0 HP but your HP will still go down.

        • Anonymous
          October 23, 2011 at 3:17 am

          You will be prompted that you do not have enough HP to use the skill, it’s the same as the not enough MP message.

          This means that you are unable to use the skill that requires that much of HP, it is possible to drop your HP to 1 coincidentally but you cant die from spending 16 HP when you only have 16 left (you can’t use the skill at all).

          An opinion is an opinion, there’s no right or wrong. It’s not fact because it’s based on how you feel about it.

          I’m pretty sure people are taught the difference between Fact and Opinion in school when you’re around 10-12 years old…

    October 22, 2011 at 12:59 am

    wait… lemme get this straight… you can use all 3 auras at once?!

    Also, this makes me wonder what they’ll do for UAs, CKs and The first 3 (warrior, mage and bowman)? Will the warriors get stance on 3rd job like how they’re giving it to BaMs at 3rd job? But then again, Arans aren’t getting stance-like effects on 3rd job…

    Also, what is this “Dragon Flight”?

    • Yurifically
      October 22, 2011 at 3:46 am

      Dragon Flight I think is the same as Demon Slayer’s glide. Since on the extractions, Dragon Flight used Demon Slayer’s Demon Jump Icon which you are able to glide in the map.

          October 22, 2011 at 8:39 pm

          How do you know Legend will be released in December? There’s 3 Parts in Legend. Plus, everytime gMS releases a big patch, they always have server maintenances and bug fixes and patches. Us we don’t. Ascension was released in September. You expect to have Legend in 3 months? It took us around 4-5 months till we had the whole Legend Patch.

    So…since BaM’s auras can overlap now, does that mean when you use body boost, you get the effects for all 3 auras?? 😀

    It’ll probably be the same as when people hacked to get all 3 auras. Only the first aura would get the buff..

    @Max I noticed one error in your post
    Seventh Growth

    Magic Amplification: MP usage and magic attacking skills’ boosts have been increased from 135% to 150%
    Breath: damage has been increased from 610% to 700%
    Killing Wing: damage has been increased from 450% t0 500%
    Magic Resistance: now increases magic defense by 40

    for evan, isnt the breath skill be fire breath or flame breath but why in your post is only called breath? If im correct, please amend you mistake in this post as it may confuse the people who read your blogs
    Thankyou

      Notice the miniscule damage increase versus other classes and even your other skills, when mech is considered balanced already. Its basically going to put you on par with other classes. You’re just a bit more like sairs now. They didn’t think it was gay. They were jizzing in their pants like Max on Shakar96.

        Incase you didn’t notice how mechs are now, that miniscule damage increase gets X6 and 100% crit. However I read from the extractions that siege mode uses mp now so they’ll be more like bowmasters/wildhunters. (they’ll still have to cancel every 100 shots unless pivoting counts as moving)

        Also try to find a siege mode hack vid against zak to see how cheap this is.

      No. KMS is actually balancing. All classes are getting buffed. You’re going to be around where DS is, not way above. If that doesn’t happen, they’ll inevitably buff them again. Way too much again. And have to revamp all of the classes. Again.

    Personally, I think the Battle Mage has gotten a lot better! They get to hit more monsters, do more damage, and use power stance in third job! IMO, the only thing bad was that Advanced Dark Chains was removed

    BaM are missing 10 SP from 4th job, since Stance and ADA take up 60 SP total, but ABA and Energize change use 50 SP. I’m not saying they take up 60 because energize already has 10 SP in it before the update. WHERE DOES IT GO?

    • BattleStyle
      October 22, 2011 at 11:09 am

      Usually Battle Mages has 4 SP missing at lvl 200 to be maxed in all skills.
      I guess that you put the 10 missing SP like this:
      4 SP- maxing all skills
      6- putting in 2nd or 3rd job skills

  35. October 22, 2011 at 11:25 am

    Wow, nice changes! Personally I like the Mechanic changes, because I’m a lvl 127 Mech in GMS. Especially the Siege Mode which is now a toggle On/Off skill :). I hope they will come soon after the Legend update of course! (And other nice updates)

  36. October 22, 2011 at 11:41 am

    Yes!!! I absolutely love the changes to Battle Mage! The movement of skills is a tad strange, but it won’t bother since my Battle Mage is past 130. The Blue Aura changes are great! I’m majorly hoping that we won’t get 1hko’d by 1/1’s since that really never made sense to begin with. I don’t care for the switching of Adv. Dark Aura and Adv. Blue Aura, but at least Adv. Blue Aura is probably going to be a cheaper Mastery Book. I’m still very much satisfied with the Aura changes. The upgrades for the Blow attacks are nice, but I never really considered damage to be a Battle Mage’s problem since it is more of a support class to me. And I am seriously loving the massive ramping for Energize! +30% Max HP/MP (formerly +20%) and +450% Weapon/Magic Defense (formerly +150%) is a trade I would make any day, even if I had to throw an extra 20 SP in. I hope Battle Mage’s only future changes are in damage infliction, their defensive capabilities are absolutely beautiful right now.

    Parting words: THAT STANCE IS OP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “Aura skills can now be overlapped”
    Does that mean we can have multiple aura skills’ effects active? Or that the animations stack?

    Everyone here seems to be assuming it’s the former, but I won’t listen to that since they’re 99% chance not KMS players (and thus why they visit here).
    Clarification, max?

    • October 22, 2011 at 12:41 pm

      If you’re going to say that it means that “Multiple Auras can be active so long as there are multiple BaM’s with different ones on”, that it would be pointless to post it since it is like that already. And why would you have the animations stack without the effects? That would be a huge waste in coding effort. To me, the only logical explanation is that one BaM can have multiple Auras active.

      • MSEAF
        October 23, 2011 at 10:46 pm

        does it means when we super body, it will effect all of the 3 auras? that would be so cool!

        • October 23, 2011 at 11:08 pm

          I doubt that. As cool as that would be, it would make Battle Mages very easily OP. It would be a lot smarter and fairer to keep it limited to one like now. How they might figure that to work I don’t know. But I guarantee Super Body is going to get changed to accommodate the new Auras.

          • JProllz
            October 25, 2011 at 5:12 pm

            And how does not having all three auras activated not make Battle Mages slightly more unfair? It’s a general boost to to just about all capabilities if we get to have all of them active: Enhanced attack (and area-based DoT) and attack speed, enhanced defense, enhanced movement (which we’re already good for because of Teleport).

            Maybe I’m being too optimistic of Nexon’s balancing efforts, but being able to stack all three auras’ effects from one caster is already pretty stacked compared to the previous Auras where you had to take a tradeoff (speed vs damage vs defense).

            A huge waste in coding effort? What, to add possibly just a few images and a few lines of code to make a smooth animation? If a GIF image can handle the effect-stacking then that’s nothing compared to programming an entire class’ skill set.

          • October 25, 2011 at 10:17 pm

            Battle Mages don’t exactly have much HP/MP, and the extra 10% isn’t going to make a ground-breaking difference. Sure, they get a nice buff from having all 3 Auras simultaneously active, but what about the fact that they’re competing with Demon Slayers, and (soon to be revamped) Warriors? They’re going to need the boost if they want to keep up. Even with all 3 Auras on right now in GMS, my Battle Mage would still pale in comparison to my Dark Knight or Hero. The new Aura system is hardly stacked.

            What you’re talking about is adding the animation of having all 3 Auras, yet only having 1 Aura active. Uhm…how is that NOT a waste in coding? Why spend the time to add irrelevant animations when you can either A. Not add them at all, or B. Add Aura overlapping, savvy?

    • October 23, 2011 at 11:15 pm

      Aran doesn’t need anymore mobility. You forget that Aran is a Warrior, and Warriors have no mobility. It’s a serious stretch as it is, and their only justification is because they need to move quickly to keep their Combo up (which is not even a problem anymore). Now that they can FREELY SPAM their Rush-like skill, it would be excessively stupid to give them more mobile attacks. Arans got a fair upgrade.

      • Anonymous
        October 24, 2011 at 12:06 am

        I agree. The only problem you ever had with combo was moving across an ENTIRE map, and even then, you shouldn’t be spamming your combo skill every 30 seconds. Just use it when your combo’s about to go out. You literally never have a problem. Now that the clock lasts longer, we’ll really have no problem.

        I like our upgrade. Also, we got a free +30 att. as well as many good damage increases. We also just became gods of survivability. We can tank hits from Akryum, although it would still be huge potburn, most likely. Maybe not with the drain buff, if you’re godly funded.
