kMS ver. 1.2.194 – Wild Hunter Reorganization, Job Balancing, Fairy Academy and Crimsonwood PQ! [updated]

Job Balancing

The previous Tespia patch has come to the real server, but there is one large difference. Battlemage was not changed, their skills are the same as before. I wonder if this is because people were not happy with it? I don’t know about you guys but I think the new animations fit the Resistance a lot better than the dark ones (albeit this is a really late change).

Anyways, Wild Hunter received some changes and new skills while 9 other jobs were balanced. They released a new theme dungeon as well as a party quest, so read on! Adventurer creation has been blocked! What does this mean? Will RED be coming sooner than expected?

Wild Hunter Character Card Effect

Wild Hunters have been reorganized! Along with the following removed and new skills, they have received both increased attacking speed and attack range! To celebrate, fourth job Wild Hunters will receive a free Special Mastery Book for a skill of their choice until June 30.

Victoria Island Map

Fairy Academy Elinel

Fairy Academy Elinel

A new theme dungeon for levels 30 and above, Fairy Academy Elinel has been added! You can access it through Northern Woods: Giant Tree after talking to Pansy.

Firefly Slime Fairy Slime Water Element Tree Element Mystic Wisp Basic Spellbook Advanced Spellbook Onion Turnip Mole King

Here are the monsters for this area, I think they look much better than the ones they made for Colossus the Giant.

Fairy Academy Items

You can get some new items from here, including the Fairy Academy Honorary Teacher medal (2 to all stats, 120 HP and MP), Elinel’s Bracelet (1 attack and magic attack, 5 slots), and Elinel’s Wings (10 avoid, 5 speed, 3 slots). There’s also a scroll for the wings that give 1 to all stats at a 100% rate.

Crimsonwood Citadel Underworld

A new party quest, The Altar of Masteria has been added! It takes place in the theme dungeon Crimsonwood Citadel and requires 3 ~ 5 people levels 130~200. The more diverse your party is, the more rewards you will receive. It can only be accessed once you have completed the quest “The Road to the Underworld”.

Master Runes

Work your way around the maze while avoiding the pillars in order to activate the Masters’ rooms’ runes.

Master Red Nirg Master Margana Master Rellik Master Hsalf Master Jackson

Afterwards, you’ll be able to fight the five Crimsonwood Masters in order to obtain the legendary weapons! When fighting these bosses, if you are the same job as them your damage will be increased by 30% and they will use one less skill.

Crimsonwood Citadel Office

What’s interesting is that there is the same room as in GMS, with the map outlining Versal’s attack on Masteria, it even has Naricain! Currently, kMS does not have anything other than Crimsonwood Citadel, which is much different than what is shown. It’s possible this might just be a place holder. We have the bonus room as well, with many chests.

Masteria Shoulderpad

The prize for this party quest is the Masteria Shoulderpad, it is level 130 and gives 5 to all stats, 4 attack and magic attack with 0 slots. It does not expire but it cannot have potential.

Tangyoon's Cooking Class

There were some changes to party quests as well! Moon Bunny’s Rice Cake now gives you 5 Rice Cakes when cleared and the hat costs 50 Cakes now. Tangyoon’s Cooking Class has been made less strict and an achievement bar has been added.

In Traces of the Goddess, Papa Pixie can now drop the Goddess’ Bracelet and Shoes, and the cost to trade them in for Goddess Minerva items has been changed to 10 and 15 feathers.

Resurrection of the Hob King‘s clear experience has been increased and the cost to change the earrings into Perfect Earrings has been changed to 25 Proofs. Ice Knight’s Curse has also had its clear experience increased.

Fantastic Theme Park

The quest requirements for Fantastic Theme Park have been decreased (good thing too, one of the quests wanted you to kill 777 of a monster!).

Ring of Fairy Queen

Also, a new reward has been added for the Ellin Forest quest chain. At the end you’ll receive the Ring of Fairy Queen, which gives 3 to all stats and 3 attack and magic attack with 1 slot, but it can’t have potential.

Queen's Fragrant Butterflies

Snake Sauron

Two new Soul Weapons have been added, for Ephenia and Arkarium. Ephenia gives you Queen’s Fragrant Butterflies, which increases the HP and MP of those in your party by 50% for 180 seconds with a cooldown of 300 seconds.

Snake Sauron inflicts 350% damage every second for 10 seconds on up to 10 enemies with a 240 second cooldown.

Medusarkarium

There is also a Great Soul for Arkarium, that gives Medusarkarium, which deals 2500% damage on up to 15 enemies and stuns them. There is a cooldown of 300 seconds.

Autopilot Riding

The new Autopilot Riding system has been added! To use it, first you must get an autopilot mount (based on your job you’ll get one for free! 120% speed for 30+, 150% speed for 60+, and 170% speed for 100+).

Autopilot Navigation

Then, choose on the world map which map you would like to move to and pay 1500 mesos. This system only works in Victoria Island.

Autopilot Movement

You’ll then see your character move by itself to where you want to go, ignoring any collisions or damage done by monsters!

Maple Firecrackers

Maple Firecrackers will be spawning around the Maple World! Defeat them and collect 1000 points in order to choose a prize! You can choose any Maple Black weapon, Hat, Suit, Gum, Ring, or Maple Prime scrolls.

Maple Survival Minigame Event

The next event is called Maple Survival Minigame and it runs until June 12. It’s actually really fun! Every XX:10, XX:30, and XX:50, you will be invited by Spiegelmann to participate with 3~5 people, seeing who can do the best in four minigames.

Raining Stones

Finally, it’s Raining Stones! Avoid all the stones, hitting 3 of them will completely use up your HP gauge and you will fail. You can become invincible for a short period of time once by pressing Shift.

Root Abyss Pets

The Root Abyss pets that were added in Tespia a while ago have finally been released, haha their food is the World Tree’s Fruit.

Asteroid B612 Riding

A new mount has been added to the Cash Shop, the Asteroid B612 riding! You can buy a 7 day version for 700 NX or a 30 day version for 1500 NX. It functions as an autopilot mount, so you can use it with that system, it will move faster than the regular balloons.

Mesodizer Chairs

And finally, my favourite part, the box can also give you one of 6 different Mesodizer chairs! There’s one for each colour of Mesoranger (red, blue, green, yellow, pink, black) and if you sit on them with others who have the other coloured chairs, you’ll form the fully transformed Mesodizer!

It’s such a cool idea and totally fun, I want them so badly~ You can even get a free medal and Black Mesoranger outfit if you post a screenshot of you and your friends with the completed Mesodizer on the MapleStory homepage!

    Lol I hope everyone is happy with their low range non-battle-resistance-like skills with no updates on attack, easier obtainable auras (30 points at 4th job to max the advance ones) (and it stays at 80 including mastery books), and also slower attacks. On another note.. great post Max. that moving system will comes in handy for new characters.

      ‘Cause pink/purple and yellow are “Resistance-like” … That’s AB theme. Also, Demon Slayer is dark, and is Resistance. I’m not sure how people think the new them fits better when it’s a fact that “dark” is in the Resistance from other places.

        Other than the animations no one complained about the damage and speed. one thing lost its cooldown. even passive were taken off. and that’s just stupid since the animations were cool looking and their weren’t that bad. And also the demon slayer was the black mage’s commander so his power were like that before. the resistance are just citizens learning how to use their technology and skills.

      evans are actually pretty balanced in terms of attacking speed and buffs to be on even level with the newer classes. It was just their damage that was a bit lagging. On the other hand, Arans generally are seen as one of the weaker classes besides pre revamp cygnus knights and have one of the lowest DMP outputs. Generally speaking there is a reason why arans are rarely seen in boss parties beyond party buffing. They needed to even out the playing field otherwise they would lose the players would really like arans.

      Btw, remember the big RED update? Chances are you’ll probably get something out of it, just cross your fingers 🙂

      (PS: Might be wrong about arans and bossing, sorry)

      • Pit
        May 22, 2013 at 11:08 pm

        Not really. they are really good. arans get a bunch of damage increase due to buff passives and combos. but if unlimited has increased the power of everything then they deserve it.

    The stance skill isn’t as same as Battle mage or warrior idiot. It comes with another skill. And Bishop resistance ans stance some with others kill too. And not like warrior or Battle mage who have Stance skill alone.

    If the revamp will bring the BIG EXODUS to Maple..i believe nexon will think that twice. I think once they change one of the class skill too but ppl didn’t like it so they changed back. But I forgot which one..though this change didn’t come to GMS and only happened in KMST.

      Depending on the Adventurer revamp, we may have either a exodus or a lot of happy people.
      Some of the comments on Insoya regarding the BaM revamp were positive and some were negative. I, myself, think that Battle Mages did need a graphic and skill overhaul, though for the sake of most people’s sanity, it might’ve been nice if they kept something like BKB.

      Some jobs have different dmg multipliers on there weapons.
      For instance a hero with a 1h have a much lower multiplier than cannoneers cannons (cannons have the highest dmg multiplier) So say u have 3000 in the stat ur job uses and u want a certain dmg range on a hero you will need much more total wep attack than cannoneer would.

      Basically Xenons wep multiplier was far too high.

      I find evans well made. Any more skills will ruin it. They already have a bunch of Buffs and takes forever to cast if not on a rope. So I believe changing the % on the attacks skills is a very fair deal already. Stop complaining and just accept it. At least they didn’t change BaM. The new animations look great but it pretty much Nerf’s them since they hit less, so it would affect the people who payed big $$$ and is able to hit cap.

    Simply make them faster take that delay down from the initial regular attack or just leave them alone.

    two unrelated questions about joker items and root abyss sets from couple of versions ago:
    1) if you are wearing items from two sets (say you are wearing root abyss hat, top and bottom AND empress cape, gloves, shoulders, shoes), which set does the joker weapon complete? One of them or both? If just one, which one? do you get to choose?
    2) i probably didn’t do enough reading, but do root abyss set give 30 or 60% boss in total?
    3) i think you mentioned in one of your previous update that root abyss hat is also a joker item? it doesn’t seem so in GMS as of the moment, is it different in KMS?

      1. No, it will only complete one set. I believe it chooses the one with the highest set ID (in the data) so you won’t be able to choose.
      2. Root Abyss set gives 40% boss from the weapons and that’s it.
      3. The Root Abyss hat is not a joker item, the Chaos Root Abyss boss hats are though (like Chaos Vellum Helmet).
