kMS ver. 1.2.189 – Golden Week and Cash Updates!
Well it’s been a while since the last patch in both Tespia and the real server, and we still don’t know the next Cygnus to be updated (although the patch will be on March 21!) so I decided to do a sort of filler post haha. It includes a small event that was added as well as all the new Cash items that were added this month that I thought you guys should know about, since I usually skip over them.
Also, my friend Andy (Asinine) has reached level 201! Congratulations~ I don’t think he’s going any further though, haha. Oh yeah, I misread the patch notes a while back, you DO gain 5 AP when levelling past 200, just no SP.
Speaking of level 201, take a look at this. That character is a rogue (first job thief), haha. The powers of leeching!
Oh yeah, while I was doing the Twilight of Perion quests, I came upon this cutscene. It shows the newest commander of the Black Mage, the dream manipulator! I believe this girl is the one who created the Gate to the Future. You can read more about it at Spadow’s tumblr~
The event that came out is the Golden Week Spring event, and runs for only three days, from March 1 to 3.
Every 10 minutes, you can collect 50 Pinwheels from monsters for Cassandra to receive either a Chaos Scroll or a 20 attack/magic attack buff.
Also, you can log in each day to claim free prizes! On the first day and second day, you’ll get a 1 day title that gives 3 attack/magic attack and 5 all stats. On the third day, you’ll get a 90% weapon scroll that adds 9 attack/magic attack and 3 to all stats as well as a 14 day version of the title beforehand.
On to the Cash items! This one’s not really important but I thought it was cute, a new hired merchant, this time a panda!
A new item called the Maple Royal Style coupon has been added, for 2,200 NX. Using it gives you a random Cash equipment from a set (the set changes each month). What’s interesting is that the equipment will have stats!! Above you can see the weapon cover, which gives 10 attack and 1 magic attack! I’m not sure if they all give the same stats, if its random, or if any of the other ones even give stats, but still… wow.
However, the stats of the Cash item will expire in a certain amount of time. You will then be left with just the item, no stats.
In the past couple of months, Nexon has released a crapload of those etc items that need a Cash item to be opened! As you can see, everything from after the Slime and Mushroom Omok Set to the Herb Bag are all these items, it’s crazy.
One of the most recent of these is the Magic Harp. It costs 1,900 NX and it’s just like any other of the ones above like Peanut Machine, ice cubes, or feathers, but it has something extra.
This is the Fever system! Every time you use a Magic Harp, the Fever Gauge will go up by a bit. Once it’s full, the next Magic Harp you use will give you a special item!
They even have Double Fever Times (like Double Miracle Times), where the Fever Gauge will go up by twice as much if you use one.
The special items for the Magic Harp included scrolls, flames, Timeless and Ultimate equipment, as well as the new Scarlet weapons, which I talked about in a previous post. These are level 145 Lucky items, meaning they can take the place of another weapon in any set.
Just a few days ago, they released the New Magic Harp, which also costs 1,900 NX. It also uses the Fever system, and you get a Warrior’s Heart Piece when you use one (this will be important later). You can trade in 20 for a Normal Warrior’s Heart or 50 for an Advanced Warrior’s Heart.
The New Magic Harp’s Fever items include:
- Advanced/Normal Maple Warrior’s Hearts (one for each job)
- Magical Weapon Scrolls (100% success rate!)
- Scarlet weapons
- Helisium/Nova equipment
- Emperor’s weapons
- Fairy/Blizzard sets (wearing two equipment of the same set will give you boss damage!)
- Various scrolls
- Flames of Reincarnation (levels 130 and 140)
Again, you see those Warrior’s Hearts! What are they for?
They’re for the new Maple Heart Pendants! When you log in, you’ll receive a Heart Pendant. Collect a Heart Pendant’s Chain from monsters and combine them to form the Incomplete Heart Pendant. You can then use the various Hearts found from the New Magic Harp’s Fever prizes to upgrade it!
- Incomplete Heart Pendant: 5 attack and magic attack, expires
- Evolving Heart Pendant: 10 attack and magic attack, permanent
- Whole Heart Pedant: 15 attack and magic attack, permanent
- Awakened Heart Pendant: 25 attack and magic attack, permanent
- Transcended Heart Pendant: 30 attack and magic attack, permanent, Superior item
Yeah, that’s a third tier necklace that gives 30 attack (magic attack if you use the magician Hearts to upgrade it), has 3 slots (I think the other pendants have slots too) as well as being a Superior item (which means it will gain massive stats from enhancements). That’s crazy…
All available to you for the low price of hundreds of New Magic Harps~
