kMS ver. 1.2.154 – Dual Blade Reorganization!

February 22, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

In this patch, Dual Blade received a reorganization, and it is finally able to be created again! There is also a new boss, the Black Mage’s commander, Hilla!

Starting on March 5, in Aswan, the World Match will be closed. You can now fight the remnants of Hilla’s army up to 5 times a day. They drop Conquerer and Emperor’s Coins, and you can gain Honor as well.

Excitingly, Hilla has finally been released as a boss! She can be fought with an expedition of 2~6 people over level 120 twice a day, in either Normal (level 120+) or Hard mode (level 170+). She drops many desirable items! In Normal Mode, you can only get the first two on the list I’m about to post.

She has some special abilities, like summoning an Altar that attracts you to it until you defeat it, a cage that can only be broken by normal attacks from your party (only in Hard Mode, if you don’t do it in time the person dies and Hilla restores HP)!

I think Hilla is the first boss ever to drop a Cash item (the pet, Dark Soul, and its equipment)!

  • Stone of Eternal Life (3 to all stats, 3 attack and magic attack Pocket item, untradeable)

  • Necro weapons (level 120 weapons)
  • Necro weapon scrolls

  • Hell’s Fire (7 to all stats, 100 HP, MP, defense and magic defense, 2 attack and magic attack earrings, 5 slots, level 130, and untradeable)

  • Dark Soul (pet, lasts 90 days, is a multipet, comes with Meso Loot, untradeable, cannot be moved into the Cash wardrobe)
  • Dark Soul’s Earrings(pet equipment, 7 slots, cannot be moved into the Cash wardrobe)
  • Dark Soul’s Power Stones (20% chance to give 2 attack to  the Dark Soul’s Earrings, with a 50% chance of breaking if failed)

Me and my guildmates decided to fight her (Normal mode of course, Hard is too hard!) and we defeated her pretty easily. I learned that the restriction of two per day is only for leading, so you can go in many more times than that!

Monster Park has been reorganized~ Monsters’ HP has been decreased and the amount of monsters per map has been increased! The drop rate for Monster Park ticket pieces has been doubled! Also, you might see this special monster randomly spawn while inside. If you defeat it, it can drop equipment that comes epic on reveal!

In addition, in Monster Park runs where you have defeated the special monster, when you enter the final portal after clearing, you’ll be taken to the Treasure Storage. Here, you can fight Bonus Spiegelmann for Greed Boxes that give special items when opened.

The books gives many prizes:

  • Pendant of Greed (2 to all stats, 5 slots, account tradeable)
  • Pendant of Greed Scrolls (25% attack/magic attack scrolls with a 25% chance to explode if failed and 30% stat scrolls)
  • Mystery Mastery Books
  • 1.3x Experience Coupons
  • Secret Recipe
  • Monster Park Coins
  • Potions

This is the new character creation screen, focusing on Dual Blade!

Dual Blade creation has been changed! You can now choose your gender regardless of KSSN, and there are two default hairs and one default faces for each gender! (Did you notice my pro editing skills?)

The tutorial has been renewed! I recorded it for you guys, sorry for any little lag spikes I had, haha. P.S. You can see the changed Kerning City and thief hideout at the end of the video!

Dual Blade’s advancement system has also been changed: Level 10 – 1, Level 20 – 1.5, Level 30 – 2, Level 55 – 2.5, Level 70, 3, Level 120 – 4! At fourth job, Dual Blades can receive a special mount called the Dark Owl.

Thanks to Fiel of Southperry for skill icons and animations!

With all this new stuff, obviously there has to be some events! The first is called the Dual Blade Reorganization Celebration event! It’s shorter in Korean… It starts today, on the 23rd, and ends once Dual Bladers cannot be created anymore. This confirms that they are not a permanent addition, yet again.

First off, all Dual Blades receive a free SP Reset upon logging in (obviously).

All newly created Dual Blades receive a special gift, which contains three items. The first is a 30 day Pendant of the Spirit, the Newly Born Dual Blade medal, and the Owl Effect Cash item!

All Dual Bladers in the correct level ranges will receive free special mastery books! They have a 100% chance of passing!

  • Level 30+: Slash Storm 20
  • Level 55+: Flying Assaulter 20
  • Level 70+: Mirror Imaging 20
  • Level 80+: Shadow Evasion 20
  • Level 120+: Blade Fury 30 & Thorns Effect 30

All newly created Dual Blades that reach level 75 receive a free level 75 dagger and blade! They come unidentified, and also have special effects! When you are level 100 or more, the dagger gives an extra 8 attack, and the blade gives a 5% chance to hit 7% extra damage on a boss monster and 7 extra attack.

All newly  created Dual Blades that reach level 50 receive the Dual Blade Ring! It gives 4 to all stats, 80 HP and MP, 3 attack and magic attack, 10 defense and magic defense, and 5% critical chance! It is tradeable through the account with the Share Name Tag!

This ring cannot stack with the other Adventurer Rings!

Next up is the Dual Blade Level Up event, which gives all Dual Blades items when you reach certain levels. You will see that almost all the checkpoints give this Go! Dual Blade! buff, and it’s a bit special so I’ll explain it.

This item is a buff that is used when double clicked, it gives HP and MP for 30 minutes. However, it does not go away once used, and has a 30 minute cooldown before it can be used again. It only runs out on the day it expires (May 1st)! Also, as you get more, the effect of this buff increases!

  • Level 10/20/30: Dual Blade Level Equipment Box, <Go! Dual Blade> buff coupon
  • Level 15/25/35: Dual Blade Level Equipment Box, <Go! Dual Blade> buff coupon
  • Level 40/50/60/70:Dual Blade Level Equipment Box, <Go! Dual Blade> buff coupon
  • Level 45/55/65/75: Dual Blade Level Equipment Box, 1.5x Experience Coupon
  • Level 80: 60% Blade for Attack Scroll, <Go! Dual Blade> buff coupon
  • Level 85: 60% Dagger for Attack Scroll, 1.5x Experience Coupon, <Go! Dual Blade> buff coupon
  • Level 90: 60% Blade for Attack Scroll, <Go! Dual Blade> buff coupon
  • Level 95: 60% Dagger for Attack Scroll, 1.5x Experience Coupon, <Go! Dual Blade> buff coupon
  • Level 100: 60% Chaos Scroll, 1.5x Experience Coupon, <Go! Dual Blade> buff coupon

All Dual Blades will receive special face accessories (masks) depending on their job advancement! All of the masks are untradeable and expire in 30 days (cannot be time extended) except for the final one at level 120, which does not expire and is tradeable through the account once.

  • 2 (Lv. 30): Green Mask (1 to all stats, 30 HP and MP, 1 attack, 10 defense and magic defense, 5 accuracy and avoid)
  • 2.5 (Lv. 55):Blue Mask (2 to all stats, 55 HP and MP, 1 attack, 20 defense and magic defense, 10 accuracy and avoid)
  • 3 (Lv. 70):Purple Mask (3 to all stats, 70 HP and MP, 2 attack, 40 defense and magic defense, 15 accuracy and avoid)
  • 4 (Lv. 120): Dual Blade Mask (4 to all stats, 120 HP and MP, 3 attack and magic attack, 60 defense and magic defense, 20 accuracy and avoid)

All Dual Blades also receive special medals based on their job advancement!

  • 2 (Lv. 55): Storm in the Darkness (100 HP and MP)
  • 3 (Lv. 70): Crossing Winds (1 to all stats, 150 HP and MP, 50 avoid)
  • 4 (Lv. 120): The Brightest Shadow (2 to all stats, 200 HP and MP, 100 avoid)

Finally, a couple of Hot Times! The first is on February 25 and gives the Shiny Golden Headband!

If you didn’t notice, this is Dual Blade’s signature hat! It gives 10 to all stats, 100 HP and MP, 100 defense and magic defense, 25 accuracy and avoid, and 10 Craft. It has 10 slots, is untradable, and can be traded through the account once with the Share Name Tag.

Also, if you are a Slasher or Dual Blader, you receive a boost of 5% critical chance, 5 to all stats, 5 attack, and 10 speed! I guess they increased the stats from Tespia to match the other hats!

On February 26, you can get an AP Reset and SP Reset!

Oh and also, the Star Star Festival (season 7) has begun! You stay logged in game and collect Star Stamps, that you can trade in on the website for both in-game items (cubes, smegas, Maple Points, Nexon Cash) as well as real life items! I see a Macbook Air and an iPad 2! You can see the prizes here.

In the Cash Shop, Inner Ability Protects were released for A and B ranks. They lock the rank of one of your Inner Abilities for one Circulator (which reset all of your Abilities, randomizing both stats and rank).

To use one, you first choose the Inner Ability that you wish to lock the rank of (the rank must match the Protect you bought). You’ll see a lock icon beside the one you’ve chosen to lock. Then, use your Circulator! As you can see, the locked Ability stayed the same rank (B) while the others changed.

I think that this is a bit of a rip off, as they only lock one of your three Inner Abilities, they only last for one Circulator, and there’s no Protect for the S rank.

S/S Royal Hair coupons have been released! As always, most of the girl hairs are better than the guy hairs…

S/S Royal Face coupons have also been released! I really like a lot of the male eyes, but I have no NX to buy the coupons with…

The Chubby Raccoon pet was released, its animations are much cuter than I expected!

      Venom would go to the the newest one. Monster Bomb I think will just be used as old SP points to use for other skills.

  15. February 22, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    I really like this patch now the Dual Bladers are perfect in my opinion
    They got equal dodge chance like the other thief classes and they’ve even got an extra mastery skill on which I was hoping that they would get for even more stable damage.
    I also like the extra damage increases and added effects in some attack skills like Pblow, Blade Fury, Target dummy (which is now more usefull then before), CoH, Final cut,….
    I’m so glad they removed Monster Bomb its was one of the most useless skill of Dual Bladers and I hope Monster Bomb will get swapped/replaced with the Blade Expert skill that would save me alot of time because I already got Monster Bomb on Lv20. ;P
    Anyways very good post as always Max, keep up the good work mate ;D

    Looking pretty nice. Max, if you could, could you “possibly” ask a Dual Blade(Pre-Revamp to now) if when Monster Bomb gets deleted, does the current Mastery Level and SP points into it, get automatically transferred into Blade Mastery? Or is it left in the SP Pool. Im sorry if I waste valuable time.

    Hilla seem’s promising. I always hated going in big parties because it means splitting the loot will be a lot harder, thus potentially causing conflicts. So I am really glad that Hilla is only between 2-6. However, going in with a group of 6 does mean more chances of killing Hilla… thus more rewards… Hmm… Well, thanks Max. Made my day.

      Like I said, there’s no end date on the Dual Blade Reorganization Celebration event, it just says “until Dual Blade creation is stopped”, which means they haven’t decided when to limit the creation again lol.

      like he said,
      1. the mask has no slot ,so no potential.
      2. there is no end date to get the mask.

    NEW SKILL: Flying Assaulter: While in the air, quickly dash down and attack up to 8 monsters for 165% damage 4 times with a 20% chance to stun for 6 seconds, while rushing them. You must have 120% or higher jump to use this skill. If this skill is level 10 or higher, you can use it with level 15 Tornado Spin or level 20 Bloody Storm. (pre-requisite: level 10 Self Haste) (master level: 20) [requires mastery book at level 5]

    Max, you don’t need 120% or higher jump. I could use it at 100%.
    Not sure if this was said before.

    Quick question. Is the Final cut “damage boost has been increased from ‘40% to 60%’, duration of damage boost has been increased from 40 seconds to 60 seconds” a typo? because it used to be 140%. Also i am lvl 158, will i still receive the lvl 120 DB mask?

    • Anonymous
      March 3, 2012 at 9:05 pm

      140% is the total damage from that text. the 40% to 60% is a boost to the normal 100%. according to the description above, you can’t get the mask because you have already advanced to 4th job. just make a new db for the new badass looks and all the goodies that come along with it.

    You can use the Inner Ability Protects to lock one of your Rank and the skill will be changed but the Rank remain the same right? 😮

      uhh you’re being unreasonable. First, KMS didn’t have the BigWig event nor do they have the jump start dual blade, so how would Max know, he’s not some time traveler you know, just an ordinary player from KMS.
