kMS ver. 1.2.148 – The Beginning of the Counterattack!

December 14, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

 

The first patch of the Justice update has been released! The Beginning of the Counterattack is now available! This enormous patch includes a ton of thief and pirate changes, Legend class nerfs, minor Adventurer changes, the Christmas event, a Neo City reorganization, and many new core systems!

Read past the cut for more information! There’s even a new entry in Inkwell’s Secret Diary! The skill changes are at the end because there’s a lot of them~

* updated at 5:30 pm, December 15 *

Before I get to the new stuff in-game, I’ll talk about the new Inkwell’s Secret Diary entry!

What is the identity of this mysterious woman?!

I think that it’s quite possible that this woman is related to Phantom or the new city Aswan. Don’t you think she looks a little like the silhouette of Hila?


Thieves and pirates made before the patch are able to receive one free SP Reset from the Maple Admin upon logging in! The SP resets last for 3 days.

Pirates can receive their own mounts now, after the fourth job advancement by completing a quiz for Samuel. Vipers receive Super Transform and Captains receive Battleship! You cannot use skills or attack on these mounts. They have 170% speed and 120% jump.

You can trade in your old mastery books or skill books to Maple Admin in exchange for mastery books for the new skills that they have received~

There is a new world called Justice! You can get the Justice Bandana (18 all stats, 180 defense and magic defense, 25 accuracy and avoid, 10 Craft, 10 slots) at level 70 and the Frontier Earrings (4 all stats, 100 MP and defense, 5 slots) at level 100. They also receive 2x experience daily from the 15th to the 23rd!

The bosses Zakum, Horntail, and Van Leon have become instanced dungeons! That means that you won’t have to wait to get a channel, and an unlimited amount of parties can enter in one channel!

The new Navigation System has been added! It can be used in two ways. The first is through the Quest window! You can press the  Get Directions button to be shown how to go to the NPC in question.

You can also open the World Map, press the Register Directions button, and press a dot on the map. It will leave an icon and then you will be led to that map!

No matter which way you choose, this is how the Navigation system looks. The red arrow will point you towards your destination!

Super Fight is now closed temporarily. You can trade in any existing BP with Maximus, but Battle Square is now closed. All items sold by Larson are now sold by Inkwell, and Proofs now drop from monster level 50 and over. Incoming Super Fight revamp I suppose!

Neo City has been reorganized! The maps and monsters have been changed around, and the area is now tailored towards those level 125 and over!

As you can see, Nex has been moved from the tree! He now spawns in every map at a small chance, and you’ll know why in a little bit!

If you finish the quest line, you’ll receive Andy’s Mastery Book, which can give you a level 30 mastery book for your class (except for Maple Warrior). You’ll also get the Time Travelling Character medal, which gives 6 to all stats, 400 HP and MP, 1 attack and magic attack, 50 defense and magic defense, and 200 accuracy and avoid.

You’ll also receive the Time Traveller’s Laurel, which gives 10 to all stats, 200 HP and MP, 200 defense and magic defense, 400 accuracy, 100 avoid, with 7 slots. It comes unidentified and also is Epic on reveal!

You can also collect Time Sand from Nex to trade in for scrolls with Andy. 10 gives you a Time Traveller’s Laurel Only Scroll which adds 1 attack and magic attack at a 100% rate to the Time Traveller’s Laurel (you can get a maximum of 1 per character). You can also trade in 30 Sands for a Chaos Scroll (you can get a maximum of 3 per character) and 100 Sands for a Miraculous Chaos Scroll (you can get a maximum of 1 per character).

The Justice Shop is now open! You can collect Justice Coins to trade in for prizes. This is very, very, very similar to the Legend Shop during the Legend festival. When you log on you get one Justice Coin for free from Cassandra! You can also get more from the Merry Christmas in Maple event, as well as the Level Up Mission, that gives you coins when you level up.

It will be open until February 29!

David is the NPC that runs the Justice Shop! You can trade in the coins you earn for many different prizes, including equipment, recipes, and scrolls! A lot of the items that are sold in the shop at David are the same as the items sold during the Legend Festival!

The first items in the shop are the <Justice> weapons! There are Justice versions of the level 80, 90, 100, 110, and 120 weapons! However, the level 120 weapons are copies of the Maple Weapons from the last anniversary, rather than Reverse or Timeless weapons. All the weapons come unidentified!

Here is a picture of the <Justice> Maple weapons! I’ll assume that its easy enough to see which weapon is which, but for reference, 공격력 is weapon attack and 마력 is magic attack! If you have any questions, please ask~ The Maple weapons cost 85 coins.

Most of these items should look very familiar, they’re items that you could have gotten through events over the year of 2011! They’ve returned, most with better stats, plus they’re all permanent this time!

  • Grape Earrings (2 to all stats, level 20, 5 slots) (7 coins)
  • Grape Pendant (2 to all stats, 50 def and m.def, level 20, 3 slots) (7 coins)
  • Grape Belt (1 to all stats, 50 def and m.def, level 20, 3 slots) (7 coins)

  • Exciting First Love (3 to all stats, 50 def and m.def, level 60, 5 slots) (25 coins)
  • Ice Crystal Face Painting (2 to all stats, 10 def and m.def, 30 accuracy and avoid, level 40, 3 slots) (15 coins)

  • Watermelon Necklace (3 to all stats, 50 def and m.def, 1 attack and magic attack, 10 speed, 8 jump, level 60, 3 slots) (25 coins)
  • Frog Hat (4 to all stats, 70 def and m.def, 2 attack and magic attack, 10 speed, 8 jump, 5 slots) (25 coins)

Next up are the scrolls! I think that all of these are the same as the Legend Shop, but I’ll still list them! You can also get special scrolls such as the Chaos Scroll or Clean Slate Scroll!

  • 20% One-handed Weapon for Attack/Magic Attack Scroll (3 to all stats, 5 attack/magic attack, 15 accuracy) (12 coins) (12 coins)

  • 20% Armor for Str/Int/Dex/Luk Scroll (4 Str/Int/Dex/Luk, 20 def and m.def, 15 avoid) (10 coins)

  • Advanced Equipment Enhancement Scroll
  • 10% Clean Slate Scroll

You can also buy Mystery Mastery Books for 27 coins! These kinds are a bit special though. There’s one Mystery Mastery Book for each fourth job! That means you will only get Mastery Books for that job’s skills! However, you can only buy 3 of these per character.

The other kind is the Mystery Special Mastery Book for 55 coins, which when used allows you to choose 1 Special Mastery Book to have! A Special Mastery Book takes your skill’s master level all the way from 10 to 30, with a 100% chance of succeeding! You can only get one of these per character though.

Recipes are also available! Reverse weapons, potions and elixirs, and accessory and Android recipes are yours for the taking!

Like during the Sports Meet event, you can also buy the Pink Coin Purse, which holds all ‘collect to trade in’ items! It has 8 slots, so that’s a lot of etc slots saved!

On December 17, the Justice Hot Time event will take place! If you’re logged in at 2:30pm, you’ll receive the Justice Luck Box!

You’ll receive a full AP Reset, 20 Justice Coins, a Mysterious Love Letter, a Justice Item Lock Voucher, personality trait potions, and the Counterattack’s Goggles hat at a 100% chance! You can also get a level 125 Fearless weapon or even a Cash item if you’re lucky!

You can take the voucher to the Maple Admin to receive a free 90 day Item Lock!

Now, there’s two versions of the Counterattack’s Goggles, one gives extra bonuses to thieves and the other to pirates (they have the same stats though). They give 10 to all stats, 100 HP and MP, 100 defense and magic defense, with 10 slots. It can be traded through storage once with the Share Name Tag.

Now with the thief hat, if your job is Hermit, Night Lord, Chief Bandit, Shadower, Slasher, or Dual Blader, you’ll receive an extra 5 to all stats, 5 attack, and 100 accuracy. The same bonuses apply with the pirate hat if you are a Buccaneer, Viper, Valkyrie, Captain, Cannon Blaster, or Cannon Master.

You only get one, and it depends on your job. If you’re a thief or Dual Blader, you’ll receive the thief hat. Likewise, if you’re a pirate or Cannon Shooter, you’ll receive the pirate hat. Otherwise, the hat you receive will be chosen at random!

On December 17, there will a 2x experience event as well! It starts from 1pm and ends at 3pm.

Also, when you log on, Cassandra will have a message for you, from none other than the Mysterious Thief Phantom himself!

You’ll also receive Phantom’s Notice, which you can open for three prizes. You get three Justice Coins, a 30 minute Phantom’s Notice Attack/Magic Attack buff (with that neat effect) and a Phantom-only equip item, the Phantasma Carte, which comes unidentified.

The Merry Christmas in Maple! event has begun! It will run until December 28~ I’m sad though, because Happyville was not opened…

You can collect Santa’s Shiny Boxes from monsters around your level and open them for prizes!

  • Polar Bear Chair (expires)
  • Justice Coins
  • Christmas Snowball (cape) (50 HP, 35 defense and magic defense, 10 slots) (expires)

  • Magical Christmas Stocking
  • Reindeer Milk/Sunset Dew

You can also hunt for Christmas Seals from monsters and trade them in to Cassandra, for every 100 Seals, she’ll give you 1 Justice Coin!

During the event you can raise the Magical Christmas Stocking item pot! It drops from monsters and comes from Santa’s Shiny Box. It sleeps for 30 minutes and can give you many prizes!

  • Santa Reindeer Riding 7 day Coupon
  • Rudolph’s Red Nose (2 all stats, 2 attack and magic attack, 5 slots, expires)

However, it is untradeable so it’s not like the I’m a Lucky Guy medal.

You also have a chance to receive:

  • Positive Chaos Scroll
  • Advanced Equipment Enhancement Scroll
  • 20% Clean Slate Scroll
  • Special Potential Scroll
  • 60% Miraculous Chaos Scroll

The Beginning of the Counterattack event has begun! Thieves and pirates (Adventurers, Knights of Cygnus, Ultimate Adventurers) can get the Union Ring at level 70 (80 for UA’s).

At second, third, and fourth job advancement, they can get 60% weapon for attack scrolls. For every 3 level ups from level 120, you get the same weapon scrolls.

In addition, you’ll receive equipment from level 10 all the way to level 70! And any thief or pirate above level 70 can receive a free Special Mastery Book!

    Hey max, id like to know what happens to our mastery that is in skills past mastry books. You said you turn in old books for new ones but do you have any idea which skills transfer over to which skills after they are deleted??

    • Max
      December 15, 2011 at 12:59 am

      I don’t know personally, but you can go on Southperry and see which skills were just changed (as in renamed and stuff) and which are completely new, the changed ones will probably have their master levels carried over. It’s possible that Nexon carried over the deleted skill masteries to the new skills, but I don’t have a fourth job thief or pirate so I can’t say D:

        As I know, you get a new skill book by exchanging it for an old skill book that doesnt has use.
        If you had already used the old skill book, then you will miss.
        Like TT for example, if you use it now, you will not get QT, if you save the book you will be able to trade it.

            ….everyone always says this…but CS are slow as fuuuuckk, so that’s another huge factor…not to mention they shoot frickin cannons….ummm hello??…they’re a tank class, they’re supposed to deal bigger dmg. Balancing classes doesn’t mean you make it so everyone does the same thing, what’s the point in that? Different classes have different pros and cons, a pro of CS was that he did more dmg….now they ruined that. Tell me, what’s the point of using a tank class that is slow as hell and doesn’t do dmg any better than the faster classes? exactly.

      That’s Nexons strategy to make more money. Make a job, lots of people play it, people overspend NX. Nerf it the next day, they’re useless. Release another powerful job that reqires a different stat, more people play them people buy NX, Nexon nerfs them the next day. Repeat.

    Man… this is just…. i dun know what to say…. but one thing’s for sure… Legends got nerf quite badly while pirates and thieves are…. not that good either… and what the heck for Marksman Piercing? decreased damage and more attacks? more like FFFFFUUUU face…
    i can see a lot of nerfing in this release… but they will soon change it again… (i hope)

    Thanks for the great insight Max, =)

    • December 15, 2011 at 1:51 pm

      The marksman piercing was actually an improvement. Before it was just hardcore 1500% damage, now its 520% 3 times. 520 x 3 = 1560% damage. Improvement.

      Pirates also got quite the improvement, Buccaneers are almost powerful enough to take on a dual blade on certain bosses with high PDR, ect.

      Corsairs, though they’re basicly an all round mix of archers, are really powerful.

      • Average Guy

        January 4, 2012 at 5:50 pm

        If I wanted to play a marksman clone, I’d play a marksman. Not a corsair.

        The part that’s worrisome to all the marksmen out there today is the fact that the 1.2x damage increase per monster may not be there. Thus, people will seriously have to quit their marksmen to go and play the clone.

        Useless. Fking. Nerf.

    geezes! DS got the blunt end of the nerfing hammer. But then again, I wouldnt blame nexon. I played them on tespia, unfunded, and god-jesus heck! they are STRONG! i mean, i can LITERALLY solo monster parks stages that are 5-10 levels. yes, a lot of people can do that, but chances are, they are funded.

    I was NOT funded at all, and most monster park takes 12 min to complete only for demon slayers. some of them takes less than 3 min! i think it was at lvl 40 at that kerning mall place.

    demon slayers, i think personally, is the strongest out of the three class pre-nerf. yes, i saw that 30 sec mercedes clip, but im sure, giving the same gears to ds, he probably will be able to do the same amount of damage as well.

    Max I have some questions, if you have some time could you answer?
    1- When you steal a skill it will be in the max level or do you need to use yours SP to max it?
    2- What are Phantom’s cons?
    3- Are they an expensive class?
    4- Do you need to buy others weapons to use a stolen skill (example buy dagger to use double stab)?
    5- Are they a class of bossing or mobbing?
    6- They have good party buffs?
    7- Is possible to steal a skill in the Free Market?
    8- I am definitely stealing priest skills (HS, Mystic Door and another that I don’t know right now), but what would be great first, second and fourth job skills to steal (considering you can steall four skills for first job, four skills for second job and two skills for fourth job)?
    9- I am curious to know when you get out of Crystal Garden in what map you will be?
    10- How is possible to get that car mount exclusively of Phantom?
    11- If I steal (example) thief skills in first job, in my nexts job am I allowed to steal others explorers skills?

    • Max
      December 18, 2011 at 11:50 pm

      1. I explained it in my last post about Phantom, but it depends on both the skill level of the person you stole it from and the level of your Talent of Phantom Thief skill. Whichever is lower will be the level of the skill you stole.
      2. Um, they’re sort of squishy I guess. That’s all I can think of right now xD
      3. They’re not even out in the real server, but it depends on if % luk gear in your server is expensive or not.
      4. Nope, your Cane will turn into whatever weapon you need.
      5. They’re the jack of all trades! It all depends on which skills you steal~
      6. They can steal any party buff, but they don’t have any of their own.
      7. Nope, you can’t use the Steal Skill in FM, but you can use it in the FM rooms.
      8. First job would be Haste, second I guess HB or something, fourth job Sharp Eyes or Advanced Bless?
      9. I think whatever map you came from. I haven’t seen if there’s a way to enter Crystal Garden without the Return of Phantom skill.
      10. It’s not possible to get it right now in Tespia I think.
      11. You can steal any Adventurer’s skills at any point in time.

    Emm Max, quick question about Shadower Instinct and killing point. ..

    1) Shadower Instinct gives 20 attack itself .. with 5 killing points, it’ll give another 30 attack. So, does that means Shadower Instinct gives out a total of 50 attack at its full potential? Which means Karma + Shadower Instinct = Total 80 attack? That would be CRAZY AWESOME. Or is it only gives 6 attack depending on how many killing points are earned?

    2) Do killing point slots only appear on head when you cast Shadower Instinct? Lastly, are the killing points only for Assassinate and the extra attack buff ? Does it increase damage for other skills if you let the killing points just hover or float whatever on top of your head?

    • Max

    All I have to say is that Vipers are top tier for damage…this skill is so overpowered and truly devastating….2,000% dmg and it’s as fast as Cannon Masters’ Cannon Bazooka…

      If you have the books, save them and you will be able to trade them.

    Hey Max, so all of the revamped classes are getting new skills and skills replaced/deleted. Any idea on which FOURTH JOB (they’re pretty much the only ones that matter because of Mastery Books) skills get turned into what?

    Do you need to reach level 70 on a thief or pirate to get the union ring or can u be over 70 before and get the ring? I’m confused :/

    • Max
      January 18, 2012 at 11:54 pm

      You need to start from a new character and get to level 70.

    thanks to all the people who bitched moaned and complained about these classes. i really feel bad for the demon slayers. i myself play wild hunter but seriously nerfing them that fucking bad just because you suck at playing your own character? just wow. yeah their a little strong but now YOU are going to be the over powered piece of shit.

    I love all these new changes, but I demand nerfing corsairs in a near future. Seriously they are a combination of a BM and MM but with all the best parts. The total 1vs1 dmg with rapid fire and hurricane are basically the same (higher if lucky with the dice/summons lower if unlucky) and they have that stupid OP mob attack that does over 2000% to 6 mobs? wtf. And a snipe attack to end. They will get nerfed. They have to.
    Other classes are nice IMO

    Hey Max. Great job with your blogging. Keep it up!
    I’ve been reading through the comments looking for the answer to this question or at least somewhere where I could have it answered but…
    If I haven’t used my triple throw book, does that mean I can trade it in for a quadruple throw book when it comes out?
    and if not, if I use the TT book, does it change into QT after the update or do I need another skill book to learn QT? Trying to decide on whether I should a TT book or not now.

    • Max
      February 10, 2012 at 4:24 pm

      Thanks 🙂

      Um, mastery books that are not used after the patch (i.e. the skill is removed) will not be changed, but you can trade them in to Cassandra for a NEW mastery book of your choice. So you can trade in like… Triple Throw 30 for Purge Area 20 or whatever, but you can’t get a Shadow Shifter book for example.

      • DC
        February 11, 2012 at 4:44 pm

        Wait, it isn’t one for one (like TT 20/30 for QT 20/30 exactly)? So you could trade in a cheap book like Ninja Ambush 20/30 or Ninja Storm 20/30 to Cassandra for sought after books like QT 20/30, Star Expert 20/30, Dark Serenity 20/30?

        • DC
          February 11, 2012 at 4:46 pm

          I notice you can’t edit comments on blogs, but didn’t you mention the Maple Admin exchanging old mastery books for the new mastery books and NOT Cassandra? I just want to clarify.

          • Max
            February 11, 2012 at 5:02 pm

            Oh yeah its Maple Admin, not Cassandra, but not like it really matters 😛

        • Max
          February 11, 2012 at 5:01 pm

          Yes, you can trade in any cheap deleted skill mastery book for any new mastery book of your choice.

            February 14, 2012 at 4:41 pm

            One last thing, if you don’t mind me asking, Max. Are the new mastery books tradeable or untradeable?

  102. Timmeh
    April 16, 2012 at 5:37 pm

    Oh my. Too many questions.

    To start with, Demon Slayers weren’t exactly number one in damage to begin with. Have there been any changes since those listed to fix the horrid nerf? It hardly seems my Demon Slayer is worth playing if this is what’s being thrown at us.

    2. Leech Aura says that you can heal up to 50% of your HP and cannot heal afterwards. Does this essentially mean that you can get the effect of an elixer ONCE and then cannot heal with anything but a Cleric’s heal afterwards? I mean, if a person were using it during bossing, wouldn’t that be suicidal? It seems as if using it in regular grinding would be suicide, given the mobs do enough damage.

    3. It says that, even with some proper funding, a Corsair still can’t quite match a DB? Are DBs seriously that OP right now? Corsairs, Nightlords, and Bowmasters should be the kings of DPS (though not mobbing) and they’re outclassed by DBs still? It seems even Shadowers trump Corsairs.

    4. Does Marksman’s Pierce continue to increase in damage as it pierces? (1.2x on the second hit, 1.44x on the third, etc) Or is it a maintained percent per enemy like any other mobbing attack?

    5. Overall, which classes among these would you say have ‘improved’?

    • Timmeh
      April 18, 2012 at 1:18 am

      I’m considering whether to level my Corsair further before the update. Will Corsairs still be pretty good after the revamp? Better? Worse?

    Hey max i got a question, ive heard that the new meso explosion will only hit 10 times on monsters, and 15 times on bosses, if so that means the 6% extra damage we get is redundant because we compared to our current (gms) meso exposion we actually hit 15 times per monster! :O

    i dont know how true/accurate it is but can you please verify?

    cheers!

  113. Wilks
    May 12, 2012 at 7:46 am

    never mind, ive verified,

    “Explodes nearby mesos to damage enemies. However, mesos that belongs to others cannot be exploded. You can stack the effect up to 10 times for regular monsters and 15 for Boss Monsters.”
    “Level 20: 20 MP Cost: 30, Damage: 186% per Meso, Max Targets Hit: 10, Number of Hits: 15”

    what does stack mean?
