kMS ver. 1.2.176 – Post Season and Belt Crafting!
After a long dry spell, finally a patch has been released! However, it only features events, no actual content haha. Some of them are pretty nice though, so that’s a bonus!
Also, in the Cash Shop, new scrolls were released. These are special as they are actually real scrolls that can be used on items! The first two are 100% Accessory for Attack/Magic Attack scrolls and they give 2~4 attack, and the second two are for pet equipment, giving the same. There’s also a Special Potential Scroll that is guaranteed to reveal a 3 lined item. How do you feel about these new Cash items?
The first event is called the 2012 Maple Post Season, and it runs until November 14. It’s a baseball themed event led by Deimos from Chryse!
On November 8, there will be 2x experience from 12pm to 6pm.
Deimos will ask you to collect 30 Spicy Chicken from monsters, and in return you’ll receive a Post Season Box (which you can open for prizes) and a Cheering Balloon. You can do this quest 30 times per day.

Next is the Baseball Catching minigame! If you remember from the last anniversary, the Maple Leaves from the Sky event, this is just like it. This time however, you must collect baseballs! There are 3 kinds and each gives a different amount of points (Tattered Baseball – 1 point, New Baseball – 5 points, Golden Baseball – 10 points). You have 3 minutes to get as many as you can!
Based on your score at the end, you’ll receive prizes! Yeah the boundaries make no sense, I guess it’s random if you’re in between the two cross overs.
- 99 or less: nothing
- 100 ~ 249: 1 Post Season Box + Cheering Balloon
- 151 ~ 250: 2 Post Season Boxes + Cheering Balloons
- 251 or more: 3 Post Season Boxes + Cheering Balloons
You can trade in your Cheering Balloons to Deimos for prizes in any town! 20 will get you a 2x Experience Coupon that lasts 30 minutes and expires in one day.
You can also get titles! These titles give 5 attack, magic attack, and 5 to all stats. However, none of them are permanent. 10 Balloons gets you a 3 day title, 30 gives you a 10 day, and 90 gives you a 30 day.
After you have chosen your duration, you can then choose which team you wish to support! They’re all the same save for appearance.
- Van Leon Lions
- Leafre Wyverns
- Folk Town Tigers
- Mu Lung Bears
- Pantheon Heroes
- Orca Twins
- Henesys Eagles
- Chryse Giants
There is also a web shop for this event, where you can trade in your Maple Post Season Web Shop Coupon for a chance to win t-shirts, hats, and plushies.

During this event, different quests will be available to you on different days. Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays will be the Monster Golden Bell quest while Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays will be the Jewel Party quest.

Once you have collected Jewel Craft Belts and Jewels, you can combine them by talking to the Moon Bunny in town into different belts!
Each day you’ll receive 1 Jewel Party Coin for free. You can also hold a Clover Leaf for 30 minutes up to 5 times a day to get another~
You can spend your Jewel Party Coins at Lux’s shop. He’ll appear every 2 hours from 10am to 12am in the channel 1 Free Market Entrance. I think his shop changes each time. Wait… are those Hot Time hats?
