kMS ver. 1.2.155 – Knight of Light Mikhail!

With less than a week in the test server, the new job Mikhail has been released!

The new character creation screen, emphasizing Mikhail and the Dual Blader.

You can only create a male Mikhail, and he comes with his own hair and eyes!

An unnamed boy in a small village who possesses the spirit of light is found  by Nineheart after a long search to become the knight of light, Mikhail!

Nineheart trains Mikhail until he’s ready to be reborn as the knight of light!

Here is a video of the full tutorial!

Mikhail uses one-handed swords and has a special shield called the Soul Shield, which grows with him. It can gain experience and level up, and it is also automatically upgraded at each advancement. At the fourth advancement, it becomes the Soul Shield of Justice,and comes with potential. The first reveal will always be 6 str, 24 accuracy, and 6 attack.

Here are my fully levelled up Soul Shield of Pride (2nd job), Soul Shield of Valor (3rd job), and Soul Shield of Justice (4th job).

If you remember the Character Deck system, Mikhail’s card gives 2/3/4/5% in weapon defense. He also counts as a Cygnus.

Until level 120, Mikhail receives the extra 10% exp per level up that regular Cygnus do.

Mikhail has Blessing of the Empress, and increases it by 1 point per 5 levels. However, he can only get up to level 24 Blessing by level up. He can get to level 30 from 24 by doing quests to level up his Noble Spirit skill.

At level 120, Mikhail receives the Cygnus version of Echo of the Hero, and he can also create an Ultimate Adventurer. At level 200, he receives the full version of the skill.

I recorded myself training at Future Ereb. As you can see, Shining Blast is probably the only skill you will use when training…

Thanks to Fiel of Southperry for the skill icons and effects!

Spiegelmann has opened the mini theme dungeon, Spiegelmann’s Strange Gallery! It’s for levels 50 to 120, and can be accessed through the Mirror of Dimensions.

It consists of four portraits, one for each season. They take you to a mini-area and completing each area gives you a Spiegelmann’s Decorated Shoulderpad with random stats. It does expire, but it can have potential. The one in the above screenshot gives 2 to all stats, 5 MP, 2 magic attack, 20 defense, and 2 speed.

In Spring, help Spiegelmann groom a new moustache!

In Summer, Spiegelmann needs you to make him a gift!

In Fall, you have to hatch Manon’s egg!

In Winter, you find yourself lost in the snowy mountains~ My friend Volt finished this part, and he said once you are able to leave the canyon, you see Spiegelmann carving Zakum!

From each portrait, you’ll receive a piece of the Unveiled Portrait! Once you’ve collected them all, click on it and enter~ (You can later hunt the monsters within the past portraits for more pieces).

You’ll have to defeat the Frame monster!

It drops Spiegelmann’s Belt (1 to all stats, 1 attack and magic attack, 1 speed and jump, 3 slots, can be traded once with the Karma Scissors, cannot have potential) as well as an envelope which gives you scrolls for the belt! There are 30% Spiegelmann’s Belt’s Chaos Scroll, 30% stat scrolls, and 20% attack/magic attack scrolls. Each has a 70% chance of destroying the item if failed.

Now onto events! The first is the Knight of Light Mikhail Open Celebration event! It lasts until May 16 (wow that’s a long time)!

All Mikhail characters receive the Knight of Light Chair! Darn, it’s untradeable…

At level 50, they receive the Mikhail Ring! It gives 3 to all stats, 2 attack and magic attack, and 10 defense and magic defense. It can be traded through the account once with the Share Name Tag. However, if you are 3rd or 4th job Mikhail, you receive a bonus 2 to all stats, 1 attack, and 100 accuracy.

At level 75, they receive the Shining Soul Caliber! It is untradeable and gives 88 attack (fast speed). It comes unidentified. If you’re level 100 or more, you get an extra 8 attack!

Mikhail also receives full equipment until level 70~

At second job advancement, you receive the Mikhail’s Earrings, which give 3 to all stats, 1 attack, and 1 magic attack. They are untradeable and have no slots at all. At third and fourth job advancements, you get a Special Mastery Book of your choice (so yes, total of 2). They expire in 30 days though.

There’s also some Hot Times coming up! On March 24, you get Mikhail’s Silver Helmet. It gives 10 to all stats, 100 HP and MP, defense and magic defense, with 10 slots. It can be traded through the account with the Share Name Tag. If you’re a 3rd or 4th job Mikhail, you get an extra 5 to all stats, 5 attack, and 100 accuracy.

On March 25, you get a 30 day Pendant of the Spirit, March 31 gives a Positive Chaos Scroll, and April 7 gives a 100% Epic Potential Scroll!

Next up is the Luck’s 3!3!3! event. It runs until April 4th~

Each day you’ll get 3 free items: a 1.3x Experience Coupon which lasts for 1 hour and expires in 2 days, a 3×3 Event Teleportation Rock which you can use to teleport to predetermined cities with a 30 minute cooldown which lasts for 3 hours, and 10 Fresh Strawberry Juice,which heals 3000 HP and MP.

If you accept the above quest 3 days in a row, you’ll be entered for a chance to win 1,000 Maple Points!  This happens between March 22 and March 28, and March 29 and April 4.

Next up, you’ll receive a quest to kill 300 monsters around your level. Each time you complete this quest, you’ll receive a 3×3 Event Box. Every third time you complete this quest, you’ll also receive a 3×3 Event Gold Box!

The3x3 Event Boxcan give:

  • 30%  3×3 Glove-only Attack/Magic Attack Scroll (can only be used on the 3×3 Gloves, gives 2 attack/magic attack, if failed destroys the item)
  • 70% 3×3 Glove-only Stat Scrolls (can only be used on the 3×3 Gloves, gives 4 stat, if failed has a 70% chance to destroy the item
  • Personality trait items
  • Sunset Dew/ Melted Cheese

      Well in the tutorial he does ask to be called “small boy” or something, so I’m not sure if he had no memory or what :S

      • March 22, 2012 at 10:22 am

        It would make the most sense if he originally called something, then when Neinheart and the Empress come, he sort of casts aside his name while he is an acolyte (for all of 5 minutes) and then assumes the name of Mikhail when he is accepted by Cygnus. Mikhail is probably more a title than a name.

        March 22, 2012 at 5:01 pm

        doesnt really matter if they take elements from other classes to make this? Also a dawn warrior is basically a hero and the only skill they used from cannons would be bazooka, so i dont see how they’re so much like cannoneers

        • Raul
          March 22, 2012 at 9:11 pm

          Mechanics were the first class that had lasers, Cannoneers copied them.
          Anyhow, it matters that it’s copied because it’s not fun to play a class that you’ve played before with the exact same skills. And it’s fairly insulting when they just make a Frankenstein Monster and expect you to believe that it’s “new”.

        By “gender locked” it means that any gender account can make one, but it will ALWAYS be male (in Mikhail’s case), no matter what gender the account is.

    Most skill animation looks a copy of 4th Job Adventurer Hero and 3rd Job Dawn Warrior with slight recoloring. The rock skill animation looks weird abit, with 2 rocks greyed and the other brimming with bright light. Notice?

    Personally I would like to see an Irina class. I loved playing as a Cygnus Wind Archer. If ever they come out with that I would definitely make one. 😀

    Does Mikhail benefit from his own empress blessing? Or do you need a Cygnus Knight if you want your Mikhail to have empress blessing?
