kMSt ver. 1.2.467 – Newly Reborn Striker!

God of the Sea

The patch containing the first Cygnus Knight reorganization, for the Striker job, has been released! Read on for more information! Note: for skill tables, I have listed all the skills they currently have in Tespia, not just the new ones, as to minimize confusion of which skills stayed or not (although most have been deleted).

Strikers can now reach level 200! Their job advancements have been changed to match the other classes (level 10, 30, 60, and 100). Their fourth job skills do not require mastery books. By the way, they still have Empress’ Blessing and Noble Mind, they didn’t remove those skills (at the moment, it may change in future patches).

For existing Strikers, their SP and AP have been reset, as well as their HP and MP, which will be determined by their job advancement and level. The creation of Ultimate Adventurers has been closed. Strikers can not do certain Knights of Cygnus quests.

The new Strikers use a really interesting chain system! Almost every skill (except AscendI believe) can be linked to one another, decreasing their delays and allowing you to combo them! It’s really fun to Ascend/Thunder across a whole map, destroying the monsters in your way, haha.

        January 22, 2013 at 11:22 am

        Knowing Nexon they might make NW not a star required job any more….. Look back at all the range type jobs these days. Merc has Magic arrows so requires no arrows. Cannoner can shoot stuff out with no cannonballs. If they keep this up what is the point of making a job that requires Stars/arrows.

        BTW: These days any jobs that requires Stars/arrows are the weakest of them all. Their damage is far lower than the other jobs and requires lots of funding just to make them close to the damage a new job can do. For example, lumi unfunded can do like 20-30k each line with Apocalypse and hits like 8x + the “shadow Partner” which does half of that so 15k x 8. NLs with no funding does like 12k per hit + their SP only giving them a total of 50% extra damage totaling about 72k. A lumi just need 2-3 hits from Apocalypse just to do the amount of damage a NL can do. BM as well are weak as hell.

        I believe they truly need to give the jobs revamps so the can at least match the new class damage…. Or they should just make all then new jobs less OP. the more they make the jobs OP the more people want revamps for their class and then the cycle starts over again….

        OT: If they dont make the revamp I am tranfering to a NW. It is a guarantee that the NW will be stronger and better than my NL. This way my damage can at least be my “deserved damage”.

          January 22, 2013 at 11:23 am

    Did anyone else noticed thunder is a copy of the dual blade skill. Also is good that they didn’t give him a super large range skill or a skill like hurricane and linking skills was taken to a whole new level. oh and Max you forgot to say 100 for the fourth job at the start of the post.

    January 21, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    Also, I believe their Lightning/Thunder passive they get in each job refers to some sort of super-old ranking system judging from their 4th job which is just “Thunder God”. I’m fairly sure the first one “인” refers to “인간” but I’m not sure what the other two are…

I laughed when I realized this “god of the sea” is a whale LOL. I’m a bit sad about the closing of UA’s though..

      You are only losing 10 str from change because passive gives you 60 str if you are currently 120, it gets better after lvl cap changes to 200 than itll be like if you had 100 extra ap

    • Max
      January 21, 2013 at 9:33 pm

      For Element: Lightning, it has a max stack of 5 at fourth job I believe (with all the Thunder skills) but there’s also the buff from Tornado (which I’m not sure is used for Annihilate or not…)

      • January 21, 2013 at 10:07 pm

        Ahh I see, so Annihilate = Octopunch
        This looks like quite a decent job to me, 80W.ATK buff, 81% Damage Buff (96% If Chained) Only thing thats missing from the new skills is Stance for them ^^

          Hmmmm do they actually need stance though? I mean they seem to move around a lot, I’m just wondering not disagreeing with you

          • January 23, 2013 at 7:37 pm

            Well, even Dual Bladers have stance. Stance is extremely useful in boss fights, in my opinion

    • Max
      January 22, 2013 at 11:48 am

      In Tespia you create a Striker by using the old Knights of Cygnus button and you only get to choose the default hair and eyes that regular Adventurers and Cygnus get, so no they don’t. But I think they’ll change it soon because they’re not gonna open the creation of the unrevamped Cygnus when they release Striker, right? So either he’ll get his own button (with maybe unique hair/eyes) or they’ll do something else.

  71. Tetrin
    January 22, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    How are those beginner skills given? At 1st job advancement?
    Do Noblesse still have Three Snails? Can Noblesse or any of the jobbed Cygnus knights go past 120 yet, or did they find a way to code it in so only Striker can?

    • Max
      January 22, 2013 at 12:29 pm

      Yep, when you advance to 1st you get them.

      No more Three Snails. And right now, when you create a KoC you start off at Lith and can only advance to a Striker, by talking to Mr. Goldstein.

    oh! you know what I think would be interesting if it happened,
    so most likely they are going to do this whole new revamp on all the cygnus knights characters, making them into their own unique class branch (which I think is a nice change 😀 )
    and maybe they are going to continue the canon characters of the actual cygnus knights as well, leaving their original powers like mihile. so it would be cool if they made a hawkeye character that can do shark wave and what not with the new skills like what they did to mihile.

    that would be a nicer fit for the role of mihile instead of having him change with dawn warior revamp.

    Bob :
    Knowing Nexon they might make NW not a star required job any more….. Look back at all the range type jobs these days. Merc has Magic arrows so requires no arrows. Cannoner can shoot stuff out with no cannonballs. If they keep this up what is the point of making a job that requires Stars/arrows.
    BTW: These days any jobs that requires Stars/arrows are the weakest of them all. Their damage is far lower than the other jobs and requires lots of funding just to make them close to the damage a new job can do. For example, lumi unfunded can do like 20-30k each line with Apocalypse and hits like 8x + the “shadow Partner” which does half of that so 15k x 8. NLs with no funding does like 12k per hit + their SP only giving them a total of 50% extra damage totaling about 72k. A lumi just need 2-3 hits from Apocalypse just to do the amount of damage a NL can do. BM as well are weak as hell.
    I believe they truly need to give the jobs revamps so the can at least match the new class damage…. Or they should just make all then new jobs less OP. the more they make the jobs OP the more people want revamps for their class and then the cycle starts over again….
    OT: If they dont make the revamp I am tranfering to a NW. It is a guarantee that the NW will be stronger and better than my NL. This way my damage can at least be my “deserved damage”.

    Dear Bob

    I am sorry to hear you are this frustrated about your old NL isnt as OP as it was, but from another point Nexon is doing a great strategy which you cant see or even dont understand. Adding new jobs can attract people which are having several lvl 200 chars to keep on playing, which means a way to keep their faithfull clients. Another point for adding new chars that are OP is that no funded new players can do good dmg so they wont get bored.

    Can you imagine if they didnt add new jobs how many players they will loose? or just jobs that are UN-fancy as a paladin?

    Beside that I think Nexon made Maplestory the best 2D MMNO, I dont think another 2D MMNO can be as succesfull as Maplestory in the coming years.

    All with all Nexon is a succesfull company which can even keep the frustated you playing.

    Pros:
    >Strikers can now reach level 200! Their job advancements have been changed to match the other classes (level 10, 30, 60, and 100).
    >Their fourth job skills do not require mastery books.
    >they still have Empress’ Blessing and Noble Mind, they didn’t remove those skills
    >The creation of Ultimate Adventurers has been closed.
    >dat flash jump
    >sharks
    >ANCHOR SCYTHE! ANCHOR SCYTHE! IT’S AWWRIIIGHT!
    >LIGHTNING BREAKER! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqT-2i2jymk
    >Water Breaker -> cue imagery of Striker falcon punching a preggo chick in the gut
    >Wind Breaker is Water Breaker’s waifu
    >Buccs got fucked
    >Brawlers are now obsolete. Suck it, Adventurers.

    Cons:
    >requires skill chaining
    >FUCK SKILL CHAINING
    >Water Breaker isn’t Night Walker
    >WHAT ABOUT NIGHT WALKERS?!
    >fuck pirates

    Yeah…I’ll wait for Wind Breakers. But I’m still hoping for there to one day be a Sin that doesn’t suck. Sins have been old news since before the big bang, never once ascending or being reorganized into anything worthwhile. Even Justice didn’t do them justice.

      well the thing is, the striker is an entirely different class, so it would really matter in the end’
