kMS ver. 1.2.165 – Choice of Light and Darkness!

The second patch of the Tempest update has been released, the Choice of Light and Darkness. It features the final hero, Luminous!

In addition, another entry has been posted in Inkwell’s Secret Diary, with what could be a sneak peak at our new continent!

Sanctuary of Grandis, the citadel of the gods that reveals their glory.

This entry is called Sanctuary of Eternity. That’s Kaiser there, standing in front of it. Could this be part of the new continent that was talked about in the Tempest update? Maybe it’s part of this Nova place that Kaiser is part of. One thing is for sure though, it looks very cool!

These are the two login screens for this patch. In the second you can see all 7 commanders of the Black Mage! Magnus, Hilla, Akyrum, Von Leon, Orca, Su, and Guwaru~

Battle Square was attacked and destroyed by the Black Mage’s forces! Grand Battle was meant to train Maplers to fight the Black Mage, and he obviously didn’t want that.

The new hero job, Luminous has been added! Luminous’ first job advancement is at level 10, second at level 30, third at level 60, and fourth at level 100.

There are two different default hair and eyes for each gender, and you can choose the gender you wish to be.

Luminous’ character card gives 10/20/40/60 INT.

Luminous’ tutorial, in which you can make the choice between Light and Dark. It affects some of the storyline as well as your skills (only first job though… I think). I don’t have time to record them, so I’ll just use these videos uploaded by NeoLegionEX (thanks!).

In the Light version, you gain access to the skills Twinkle Flash and Light Magic Enhancement.

In the Dark version, you get Dark Falling and Dark Magic Enhancement. This one is sad though… you abandon Lania after you destroyed her home!

As you can see, Luminous is the final hero to enter the battle. On his way in, he sees Phantom and Aran, who hold off the Black Mage’s forces. Inside, Mercedes and Freud have already been defeated, Demon Slayer as well. After hearing that the Black Mage has been weakened greatly, Luminous seals the Black Mage away!

Luminous, along with the other 4 heroes and Demon Slayer, was able to seal away the Black Mage. However, this came at a cost, the Black Mage corrupted the mage of light, Luminous, with his evil power! Luminous must now balance between light and darkness.

 

Luminous uses a new weapon, the Shining Rod, and secondary weapon Orb. At fourth job, the Orb can be potentialed!

It also has a really cool job advancement animation!

Luminous uses a dark/light skill system! Let’s start from the top left, which is the Sunfire state. Luminous gets increased damage on his Light skills and heals some HP each time he uses one. As you continue using Light skills, you’ll reach the Equilibrium state, where you can use all of your Equilibrium skills without cooldown and without using MP, along with 100% increased damage. Afterwards you’ll hit the Eclipse state, where your Dark skills will become more powerful, with 50% increased damage and no MP used.

This means in order to do the most damage, you must keep switching between using light skills and dark skills, and you can’t spam one attack!

The Magician of Light Open Celebration event has begun! It lasts until August 31.

If you reach level 50 on Luminous, you’ll get the Luminous Ring! It gives 3 to all stats, 2 attack and magic attack, and 10 defense, magic defense, and accuracy. It can be traded through the account with the Share Name Tag. If you’re a 3rd or 4th job Luminous, you get an extra 5 magic attack!

At level 70, you’ll get your choice of one Special Mastery Book~

You’ll get equipment boxes at level 30, 50, 60, and 70 to help you along your way!

Also, at each level above, you’ll get a 1.5x Experience Coupon!

Of course, there will be some Hot Times to celebrate Luminous’ arrival! The first, on July 14, gives an AP Reset Scroll, Character Name Change Coupon, Lateral Dogma, as well as the chance to get an Abyss weapon and the Tempest title.

Character name changes are new in kMS (we’ve never had them before). This one is better than the ones in the other versions, it allows you to instantly change the name of any of your characters (it doesn’t matter which of your characters has the coupon).  The Lateral Dogma hat gives 10 to all stats, 200 HP and MP, and 50 defense and magic defense, and it comes unique on reveal! It also gives an extra 10 INT, 6 magic attack, and 30% HP to Luminous characters.

Each day you’ll receive 1 Coin for free (2 if you’re a new job i.e. Luminous or Kaiser)!

You can also hold Cassandra’s Bottle of Wind for 30 minutes to get the Filled Bottle of Wind, for which you’ll get 2 coins for (4 if you’re a new job).

You can also get Tempest Celebration Ice Boxes from monsters around your level. If you open them, you’ll have a chance at getting Tempest Coins, personality trait items, potions, and Ice Bars (which last for 3 days)~

You will be able to spend your coins at the Tempest Shop, you can find it by talking to the NPCs Wind and Spark in all major towns! Like other festival shops, they have a variety of items (mostly copy pasted, haha).

For equipment stats, you can check Fiel’s extractions.

Spark sells equipment and scrolls. This includes the new Tempest set (which looks pretty cool, actually!). The Tempest set consists of a hat, overall, gloves, shoes, cape, shoulderpad, belt, earring, and weapon.

      Korean are mage wh0res, Pirates is a western civilization American/Canadian/European culture. (idk im just BSing)

      But it is only fitting that the final hero should be a mage, after all, it takes a Mage of Light to beat the Mage of Darkness (Black Mage), it just wouldn’t make sense to have a “Pirate Hero” be the one last hero to seal Black Mage.

      Because if you look at the story line they have set up, pirates didnt exist, and you can even see kyrins mother making the first “gun” in the ellin forest npc map from ludi time portal. obviously pirates didnt exist, so they filled the gap, and because of the demand for a new pirate class, they brought in cannoneers and Jetts/Dragonwarriors, two classes i hate

    I remember hearing awhile back about a Mapler in the story that had helped the heros in the past. Apparently he is from the future. Wouldn’t it be cool if this new race features a time traveler? What do you guys think

      from what I recall that “mapler” is any given player character in one of the later questlines.

    Max, you mentioned that the Helisium Elite Class equips become more powerful if you enhance them, is there a specific item or scroll you use? they seem quite OP clean.
    Also, im guessing you would pick the light class, but is that recommended for dmg? Apocalypse seems a tiny bit OP in hitting 350 SEVEN tims, but its range doesnt look as much as light reflect (i wonder why light reflect wasnt used in the video).

    Luminous does not excite me.

    Unlike JMS, KMS does not seem to understand that Maplers don’t want pure AOE mobbing classes. Most Maplers want at least a single fast 1v1 bossing skill. Luminous does not provide this. And that’s terrible. Revamped Battle Mage is lookin’ pretty good in comparison.

    • July 13, 2012 at 12:23 am

      that just makes every class the same….

      most of the game is largely unkind to single target stuff. believe it or not, bosses aren’t the only things you’ll fight over your character’s lifetime. 😛

      For flippin sakes. No one freakin knows the exact date to when Luminous comes out to GMS. DO WE LOOK LIKE TIME TRAVELERS OR SOME SHIT TO YOU? Each update/content that arrives in KMS comes out to GMS in a 5-6 month time span. That’s the best answer anyone can give you. Geez. Impatient “kids” these days.. -___-

    is it me or have they lazed out about the cutscenes after DS? yet again the male/female option is presented, but the cutscenes show male exclusively.

    also, somehow it bugs me that picking dark at the start sets luminous straight into THE POWER OF DARKNESS IS MINE! BWAHAHAHAHA! mode; you’d think that’d come later, and (s)he’d initially just abandon lania out of not wanting to risk making things even worse with another such outburst. owell, I’m not the writer.

    Howdy, I believe your blog could possibly be having browser compatibility problems.
    When I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that, fantastic site!
