kMS ver. 1.2.151 – Lunar New Year!

As some of you may know, I did black out my blog a few hours ago. It was supposed to start at 8am est but I could not get online until about 4pm est. So it was really only down for about 4 hours, plus this is a small blog so it may not have had much of an effect, but it’s important to raise awareness about the SOPA because if passed, it could hurt a lot of websites on the internet, even blogs like mine!

This patch did not bring much more than a new event, but it’s pretty cool! The Lunar New Year is an important event for Koreans. Therefore, there are someย  items that you can get that are really good! This event runs from January 19 to February 1. There’s also some other things I want to talk about such as the Aswan world map and Aswan as a training place, so stay tuned.

The first part is called Fun Maple Yut Nori. It’s a popular game during the New Year in Korea, you can learn a bit about it here (once Wikipedia’s black out ends, haha). Monsters around your level will be dropping these sticks, and when you pick one up, you get 1 to 5 points. You can even lose a point! But for every 200 points you get, you can talk to Cassandra in town to get a Justice Coin~

There’s a new raid, where you must defeat the Black Dragon! Every hour at XX:05 and XX:35, you’ll receive an invitation to the fight. For beating him, you’ll receive 2 Justice Coins! But you can only fight him 6 times per day… at least it’s a really easy way to farm coins~

You can collect 20 of three ingredients to make Rice Cake Soup! Every time you complete this quest, you’ll receive a Lunar New Year Rice Cake Soup which gives you a buff based on your level (1~30: 20 attack and magic attack, 500 HP and MP, 31~70: 20 attack and magic attack, 1000 HP and MP, 71+: 20 attack and magic attack, 1500 HP and MP) and 1 Justice Coin. It sorta sucks because the Soups don’t stack… and they expire in a day or two… But it takes literally 2 minutes to complete this quest so it’s good to farm Coins. However, you have to wait 10 minutes between each quest and you can only get a maximum of 5 Coins per day…

This one is really awesome! When you log on each day, you can tell your wish to the Little Draco! You can then choose one of the 7 prizes (50% Golden Hammer, Special Potential Scroll, 60% Miraculous Chaos Scroll, 15% Accessory for Attack or Magic Attack, and 15% Armor for Attack or Magic Attack). Hold the Normal Orbย  for 1 hour to become a Powerful Wish’s Orb and give it back to receive the prize you chose! You can only get each prize twice over the course of the event, and since it lasts 14 days, you can get 2 of all of these items.

Monsters around your level will drop Lunar New Year’s Gift Boxes, which you can open for many prizes! This includes the 4 Moon Bunny Cushions were from a long time ago! I’m very excited because as most of you know, I like to collect chairs! For so long, I’ve had only 3 out of the 4 cushions, and I’ve been really annoyed that they didn’t make them available again… finally I can get the last cushion!

  • Justice Coin
  • 1 of 4 random Moon Bunny Cushions
  • 30 Day Money Bag Riding Coupon
  • Black Dragon’s Earrings
  • 20% Black Dragon’s Earrings for Attack or Magic Attack Scrolls
  • 70% Black Dragon’s Earrings for Stat Scrolls
  • Sunset Dew
  • Reindeer’s Milk

There are also a series of Hot Time events for this event, with really good prizes! The first, on January 21, gives a 50% Positive Chaos Scroll, which can only raise the stats of an item if it works. The second one on January 22 gives a Lunar New Year’s Miraculous Blessing potion, which gives lots of experience! I don’t know if it gives a set percentage or a different amount for each level range…

The third Hot Time is on January 28, and it gives a Black Dragon’s Shoulder (which gives 2 to all stats, 2 attack and magic attack, 30 defense and magic defense with 3 slots, unfortunately it cannot be traded nor can it have potential) and a 3x Experience Coupon! Yes, you’re reading that right, not 2x, 3x! On January 29, it gives a 100% Epic Potential Scroll and another 3x Experience Coupon!

This event also gives an Event Stamp, if you manage to get 5000 points from the Yut Nori event by the end of the event~

That’s not all! Every day from January 19 to February 1, there is 2x experience from 1pm to 4pm~ I hope I can get to level 190 soon!

The Aswan world map has been added! As you can see, it is located in the Nihal Desert! The specific map itself shows the different modes and difficulties, and a tower in the middle labelled Hilla’s Tower. This tower is never reached, so there’s no point in putting it there…. unless… foreshadowing of a future Aswan update? With Hilla as a boss? Maybe…

Finally, remember how I said that Aswan was a complete disappointment? It’s actually not. It’s a really good training place! The most popular way is to choose Attack Mode on Hell difficulty and stay on the left while attacking the oncoming mobs! As you can see, during 2x experience, I was receiving over 200k experience per monster! For a version without party play zone Lion Heart Castle, it’s really good. Currently I’m level 187, almost 188! I’m excited for 19X~

            why not cheat to 5th?

            also, how do those items from the previous hot time that bring your rank up to S work? does it affect all every line you have? or only one of them. do you choose which line you want to enhance?

    Could you make a Phantom Skill Table linked at the same place where the Legends’ skill tables are, and perhaps even the storyline too?

    Thanks in advance.

    • Max
      January 19, 2012 at 4:44 pm

      I can do the skill tables but I don’t have much time to do the storyline… I can add a small blurb near the beginning with the videos and some screenshots if you want?

    Those are some awesome events there, heh heh.

    So, what’s the normal EXP rate of the Aswan Hell Difficulty mob? Or did I miss that from another post…

    • Max
      January 20, 2012 at 4:39 pm

      I think around 25~30k exp for that level range, but it is a party play zone so most of the exp came from the party bonus :3

  22. January 22, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    Well, just like how the Legends finale brought Akyrum, maybe the Justice finale will bring Hilla?

    By the way, would you say 120-160 would be faster at party play LHC or Aswan?

    • Max

    You get 1 coin every 200 points, just saying

    You’re protest of SOPA may have been for nothing. Obama just signed the international treaty ACTA, which is worse.

      Lolwut, ACTA was signed last year…..
      Oh, And does 3x stack with 2x events?

    Max, is leveling in KMS as easy as GMS?

    in GMS you can just get a priest to HS you at LHC at 2x while having some cash shop 2x coupons. Plus the mercedes buff with two spirit pendants, with the legends 1.5x buff.


    Wow. I know in KMS, LHC isn’t a party play area any more, but I’m still curious. Many people can get to 200 in less than a month.

    • Max
      January 27, 2012 at 3:30 pm

      Not sure, but that sounds much higher than any exp multipliers we can get xD None of our event exp coupons stack with 2x events, plus no cash shop coupons ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Things seem really slow in KMS atm, any ideas when the next Kmst update will be and will it only be stupid filler content until the next big patch o.O?

      well, tespia starts again from feb 6
      so soon enough we will get more things
