Inkwell’s Secret Diary – The Prelude to the Tempest!

[Game/Maple] The tempest is coming… Big Bang was just a beginning.
The prelude to the great tempest that surpasses the Big Bang! 

I think that this confirms the next game update will be called Tempest! However, what could it mean by saying that Big Bang was just the beginning…? Obviously this update will include Luminous, but what else?

We know that the job advancement levels were decreased… could this mean 5th job? How about another restructuring of the game, with huge changes to mobs and stats? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see, but I’m really excited! Darn this diary, getting me hyped up for everything…

    That 61XX class

    Perhaps 5th job
    And hopefully making monsters hp higher
    Cuz right now
    Everything is easily killed with one hit

      5th job sounds lame ish. Instead of calling it 5th job they should put somekind of new advancement name like Finale Advancement or etc etc 😀

      • Bob
        June 26, 2012 at 9:53 am

        After reading Max’s blog about 5th Job i have been doing some math just now. If u noticed the level of every job advance is increasing by 10.
        Explanation: 1st Job-1-10 (needed almost 10 levels)
        2nd Job-11-30(needed 20 levels)
        3rd Job-31-60(needed 30 levels)
        4th Job-61-100(needed 40 levels)
        There is a chance they might add another job advance since there aren’t many people that would actually play from level 100-200 with no extra things to do in the game so making an extra job advance at level 150 might be nice. In my opinion, the chance of KMS doing this is very unlikely but it never says a man cant dream o3o. I am also very interested in what they meant by Big Bang was just the beginning.

        • EternalRain
          June 26, 2012 at 12:28 pm

          Uh, 1st job is still 1-30. Second is 30-60. Third is 60-100. 4th is probably 100-180, considering there’s so many skills to max in 4th. 20 levels for a quick 2-3 skills for 5th job seems pretty likely.

          June 26, 2012 at 10:28 pm

          .you might want to fix that since first jobs usually start at lvl 10

        • Anonymous
          June 26, 2012 at 11:03 pm

          1-9= Beginner
          10-29= 1st job
          30-59= 2nd job
          60-99=3rd job
          100+=4th job

          Unless they split up the skills that you get in 4th job or lower SP required, i think it’s not very likely 5th job will be at 150

    5th job would be chaos -_- but i think it would be super awesome!

  12. June 25, 2012 at 4:05 pm

    Uh-Oh…Im on edge

  13. June 25, 2012 at 4:21 pm

    Restructuring and all would be nifty. 5th Job would be dynamite, especially since some of us have brick walled because we mastered 4th Job… *insert rant here*. But how about some more high high-oriented content (perhaps effective solo options for training?)? I can’t be the only one out here who is tired of relying on others to be able to get something done. Enough speculation on my end, this ought to be interesting to see indeed.

      July 7, 2012 at 9:17 pm

      Yep, we could definitely stand for some solo high-leveled content…

      LOL -_- i made this post to, just not under my account.

  15. June 25, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    Cool, and maybe EVEN more new classes, like a thief res, or a archer.

    • Aku
      June 26, 2012 at 1:51 pm

      Oh I’m with ya.. I haven’t exactly been dying to see a new archer, but given the numbers.. that needs to happen. xD Thief resistance I’ve been very interested in.. but have no ideas. I figured the archer could get either a composite bow/giant bow+melee, or something along those lines.. Though they’ll probably pull something stupidly random if they make another. xD

      • yoshi140
        June 26, 2012 at 2:01 pm

        I agree, I think a new archer should have types of melee skill. Maybe he can use a skill when he pulls his bow into to and one side in a knife. They would still be able to use bow though, that would just be for the skill. But in the end you are right, they will make something stupid. P.s. the thing i said about the archer i got for kid Icarus :P.

    i would love nexon if they brought in fifth job that you had to quest for skills and did like a reverse big bang, decreased exp, decrease dmg my thought are they nerfed the game to make money and it attracted negative attention and they plan to change it back as they made their fortune with the black mage content.

      Probably 150…

      • EternalRain
        June 26, 2012 at 12:29 pm

        Or 180. 80 levels isn’t even enough right now for some classes to max their skills (Marksmen) from 120-200, so how can you justify lowering the level range from 80 levels to 50?

        • Brayson
          June 26, 2012 at 4:14 pm

          If I had to guess, I’d say that they would decrease the number of skills you’re given in 4th job by a few and place them into 5th job along with 2 or 3 new skills. That’s the most logical thing imo.

        • altesien
          June 28, 2012 at 12:01 pm

          There is no reason to have a skill go up to lvl 30
          and only increase by 0.5 % or 1% each time

          They could easily make all the 4th job skills fit for

          153 skill points

    Let’s think. In the big bang we got 3 new classes, and a game rebirth. In here we new we get 1 class and maybe 5ith job. I think fith job and a game rebirth is coming!

    • Name
      June 25, 2012 at 8:50 pm

      Scratch that, this is BIGGER than big bang. Big bang has the word “Big” in it. Fith job sounds plausable. The levels have been changed, so the fith job odds go up. There was a class released in tespia, so class ods are 99%. But what else? If fith job is made, unless 5th job has only a few skills and is not an actual “Job” An incresed level limit is coming. With an incresed level limit, the bosses need to be harder and there needs to be more bosses. Wow.

    Wow 5th jobs would be cool, except I was really hoping for them to increase the max level…
    Wonder what other things this Tempest update might bring though?
    Perhaps the 3rd archer class that I’ve been waiting so long for?

    Ive always wanted max level increase. But that wouldnt really be fair to all those that played all that time to reach that maplestory rank. So I was thinking. Maybe new ranking system for all new characters made?

    • Bob
      June 26, 2012 at 9:59 am

      I prefer 999,999 over that number any day. That number looks so ugly even though it is more damage. if they want to make a new cap they should make it 9,999,999. See what i mean doesnt that number look a lot better?

      Tempest mmm catchy 😀 I think it wil be a big patch since big bang is just the beginning they wrote I hope to see new user interface more professions better mining- herbing – alchemy – craft system. More content with a story line with alot of quest, more puzzels , and if the 5th job is coming.. I hope it wont turn out like this.. this job has no flash jump/tele lets give this job this also or this job has no 90% mastery lets give the others this to.. Then I want to orginial skils. But yeah keep the good work up nexon 😀

      June 26, 2012 at 12:37 pm

      oh and also i wish they would stop limiting the character customization when you create a class like for the demon slayer and Mercedes. i also hope the the rest of the Cygnus knights will get a character class like Mikhail. but i still hope it wont be gender locked.

    June 26, 2012 at 10:52 pm

    Am I the only one who hopes, that they add hd full screen resolutions?

    And 5th jobs could have a story to it.
    For the 5 heroes, they could get Awoken and the adventures could Arise to the age of Hero’s.

    And than there should be 5 evil Hero’s to spell out STORY.

    • Kiddo
      June 27, 2012 at 4:49 am

      They would have to change all the maps to full HD and everything will turn really small.

    • June 27, 2012 at 12:37 pm

      In order to have “Evil Heroes”, we’d need a faction system since we would then have the opportunity to play as villains, and that would require a lot to go hand in hand with it. I.e. exclusive maps and mobs since bad guys are bent on killing good guys so we’d need “good guy” mobs, possible “raiding system” (go to other faction’s place and ransack it), and a lot of storyline. Personally, I doubt we’ll get “bad guy” classes since that would require a LOT of work and development.

  34. Anonymous
    June 26, 2012 at 11:09 pm

    This is really unrealistic, but wouldn’t it be cool, if there is a 5th job, that you do quests the skills, and you have to pick from a selection. So basically you get to pick 5 out of 10 quests to do to get skills for 5th job.

  35. Allons-y
    June 26, 2012 at 11:46 pm

    When NX ran out of ideas, 5th is a backup choice. This thing we can predict before 😦

  36. June 27, 2012 at 6:15 am

    I wish they actually re-do ALL maps in a darkish style.. Like the Black Mage is resurected and all maps looks destroyed. Like a big apocalypse in the whole maple world ! That would be awesome in my opinion

  38. June 27, 2012 at 7:05 am

    More ideas : Removal of mastery books (xD), add a change character button in menu so we don’t have to relog everytime, delete travelling time totally

    • June 27, 2012 at 9:00 am

      The character change button would be really nifty 😛

      • Jett "Flash" Gordan
        June 27, 2012 at 10:27 am

        Oh yes I would vote for that.

        Nexon needs to build thier game to where we dont waste so much time on useless things like traveling, relog to other characters, and also cut down on the EXP curve so that old and newer users can enjoy every single class, (among a seemingly never ending creation of new classes) by getting to lvl200 much faster, and easier enjoy its ultimate acheivement.

        really who has the time to grind like mad after 120 and up to 200?
        its now faster but hard enough trying to get to 120 on one character. but thats just me.

        • June 27, 2012 at 3:29 pm

          Actually I don’t really agree, I mean getting to 120 in KMS isn’t that hard (I can do it in less than a week without playing excessively) But then we all have to agree that 120-200 is a pain.. Especially past 160 when all you can do (in order to get decent exp in a decent time) is Pq’s which is boring after a certain time. If 5th job really comes out, I think it would be cool to increase the level limit to 250. Like I saw on blogs and forums people thinks that 5th job will be at level 150 (because you need 10 levels to get 1st job then +20 levels to get 2nd job , +30 to get 3rd and +40 to get 4th so it would be normal to have +50 for 5th.) My point is that 50 levels may not be enough SP to max the 5th job (If they plan on making a lot). Anyways that’s just me 😉

      • June 27, 2012 at 3:23 pm

        It makes actually a long I’ve been hoping for that. But it would still need some kind of cooldown or else we could do hot times on all characters which would be cool but too advantageous.

  39. June 27, 2012 at 9:00 am

    Hope to see Original 5th Job skills and not Lasers / Advanced Version of the skill.

    “S” theory. for MAPLE group become MAPLES, SHARK = the forgotten hero

    • June 27, 2012 at 7:27 pm

      If they do that Maples wouldnt make sense if u ask me. Maplestory would make more sense but i doubt nexon would make 5 more special/op classes or maybe they will if they run out of things to do.

  41. pie-is-awesome

    June 27, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    If it would be lovely if they changed the 32 bit thing to 64 bit. So that we can finally see numbers larger than 2.14 Billion. Some new storyline would be nice. Black mage is getting kind of old.

    • June 27, 2012 at 7:19 pm

      U cant just chnage the entire storyline right when its reaching (or so we preume) the end…
