kMSt ver. 1.2.484 – Kritias & Monster Battle!

Fallen King's Castle Entrance

The new high levelled area, Kritias has been added in the latest Tespia patch! In addition, the new content Bamon’s League (which I believe other versions will be receiving at similar date as kMS?) was also included.

These things (maybe along with more?) will come to the real server on August 1.

Critias Kingdom - Marketplace

Kritias is a kingdom that disappeared from Maple World long ago. It is open to Maplers level 180 and above, and can be accessed through Sky’s Nest 1 in Leafre (or Pantheon’s Dimension Gate, Veritas, and Crystal Garden). A world map and other means of transportation will be added in a later patch.

This is the place that allows Maplers from every world to come together! The monsters in Kritias go up until level 210.

Half Magic Stone Piece Half Magic Stone Enheim Coin

When hunting monsters in Kritias, they have a chance to drop Half Magic Stone Pieces, which you can collect and put together to form Half Magic Stones. You can trade them in to Lavian to get Enheim Coins which you can use to buy items.

Inverse Codex

You can also infuse your Half Magic Stones into your Inverse Codex, enhancing its stats and upgrading its level. The Inverse Codex is a new pocket item and it starts off with 2 to all stats, 2 attack and magic attack.

I don’t know how many stones are needed to level up but I do know the stats it will gain!

  • Level 1: 50 defense and magic defense
  • Level 2: 100 defense and magic defense
  • Level 3: 100 HP and MP
  • Level 4: 200 HP and MP
  • Level 5: 1 all stats
  • Level 6: 2 all stats
  • Level 7: 1 attack and magic attack
  • Level 8: 2 attack and magic attack
  • Level 9: 1% defense ignore
  • Level 10: 3% defense ignore
  • Level 11: 2% boss damage
  • Level 12: 3% boss damage

Inverse Jewel Earrings Inverse Metal Shoulder

The Codex is part of the Kritias set with the Inverse Jewel Earrings (6 all stats, 600 HP and MP, 4 attack and magic attack, 6 slots, untradeable) and Inverse Metal Shoulderpad (10 all stats, 10 attack and magic attack, 1 slot, untradeable). I assume you can get these through the shop mentioned above (or maybe below?).

They are level 150 and there is a set effect! For wearing all three of the items above, you’ll gain 20 attack and magic attack and 20% boss damage.

Critias Commemoration Coin

Half Magic Stones can be traded in for another type of coin, the Kritias Commemoration Coins, which you can use to buy certain items.

Kritias Shop

Here is a picture of the Kritias coin shop (thanks to 콘파쿠 of Insoya)!

  • Inverse Jewel Earrings – 200 Kritias Coins
  • Inverse Metal Shoulder – 200 Kritias Coins
  • Inverse Codex – 100 Kritias Coins
  • Hekaton’s Rest chair – 100 Kritias Coins
  • Flying Battleship Riding Coupon – 10 Enheim Coins
  • Hecaton’s Fist Riding Coupon – 10 Enheim Coins
  • E.X.P. Entropy (increases experience from Kritias mobs by 1.5x) – 5 Enheim Coins
  • A.M.P. Entropy (increases chance to find Half Magic Stones) – 1 Enheim Coin
  • Hilla/Magnus/Van Leon/Arkarium Transformation Potion – 7 Enheim Coins
  • Base Damage Skin – 5 Enheim Coins
  • Digitalize Damage Skin – 150 Enheim Coins
  • Kritias Damage Skin – 250 Enheim Coins
  • Empress Clear Count Reset Coupon (resets your clear count for the boss, can be used once per day) – 6 Enheim Coins
  • Hard Magnus/Chaos Von Bon/Chaos Pierre/Chaos Bloody Queen/Chaos Vellum Clear Count Reset Coupon – 3 Enheim Coins
  • Half Magic Stone Combiner (I.M.S) – 5000 mesos

Base Damage Skin Digitalize Damage Skin Critias Damage Skin

These new items have been added, they’re called Damage Skins. The first is the base, the second is called Digitalize, and the third is called Kritias. Using one will change the appearance of your damage numbers (except the first, unless you already used one of the other ones). However, Zero cannot use them.

Digitalize 0 Digitalize 1 Digitalize 2 Digitalize 3 Digitalize 4 Digitalize 5 Digitalize 6 Digitalize 7 Digitalize 8 Digitalize 9 Digitalize Guard Digitalize Miss Digitalize Resist

Critias 0 Critias 1 Critias 2 Critias 3 Critias 4 Critias 5 Critias 6 Critias 7 Critias 8 Critias 9 Critias Guard Critias Miss Critias Resist

And here’s what they look like. The first is the Digitalize skin and the second is the Kritias skin.

Hekaton's Rest Chair

This is what the new chair, Hekaton’s Rest looks like, but it pales in comparison to the size of the real Hekaton, haha.


Commander Invasion (Magnus) Commander Invasion (Hilla) Commander Invasion (Lion King) Commander Invasion (Arkarium)

The Kritias area is constantly in danger of invasion from the Black Mage’s commanders. Just what are they aiming for in Kritias? The commanders and their soldiers invade several times a day. The people of Kritias eagerly await the help of Maple warriors to fight them!

Critias Kingdom - Marketplace (Invaded)

After every invasion, Kritias’ environment will change. If too much damage was taken, you’ll have to repair it before the next one or else Kritias may be taken over by the Black Mage!

As the allies of Kritias, Maple Warriors will have to undergo missions. If you manage to defeat a powerful Captain-class monster or commander, you’ll even gain special rewards. Currently on the test server, the commanders have not appeared. To get the Kritias’ Defense medal, try to help defend Kritias from other monsters.

Hekaton With Mapler

They have begun preparations to add the 1v100 boss Hekaton! Hekaton was actually the King of Kritias, but he became corrupted and was cursed to inhibit his castle.

I tried to render his map but it broke my program (so big!) so I just did his body. He’s huge!! You can even stand on some parts! Can you spot the Mapler?

Fallen King's Castle Minimap

I can see the minimap and it looks gigantic, with many platforms everywhere (probably to allow 100 Maplers to move around and hit his whole body). There are portals on the side walls that let you go up and down the platforms.

Thanks to Locked of Southperry for the picture!

Bamon Lv 1 Orange Mushroom

Monster Battle, Bamon’s League has been added! It is a new type of content where you can capture, raise, and battle other Maplers with monsters found in Maple World! Basically Pokemon, haha. (thanks to 비츄 of Insoya for the pictures I am using here)

Capture Success Capture Failed Already Owned

To get the Bamon Capture skill, you must complete certain quests. After that, you can use it to try and capture monsters! The success rate will depend on the monster’s level and the level of your Capture skill. All captured monsters will be shared throughout your account.

You can even capture boss monsters! But be careful, it will be much harder than regular monsters.

Bamon Book

After you have captured at least 3 monsters, you can use the Bamon Book UI to participate in Bamon’s League. The Bamon Book shows your captured monsters, your equipped monsters (which will be used in leagues), Bamon skills, and Bamon equipment.

Bamon equipment can be gained from monster drops. There are 190 kinds (helmet, overall, gloves, shoes, cape, weapon) and can be equipped onto your monster to make them stronger. Bamon equipment will have a special red B in the bottom right corner to distinguish it from regular equipment.

Monster Battle

Pressing the Battle! button at the bottom of the UI will automatically find someone in Maple World with a similar level as you. At the beginning of the battle, you can choose which attack to use or else it will be chosen randomly. The battle will proceed automatically. If needed, you can minimize the UI during the battle.

Bamon Win

Your monster will gain experience if it participates in battle, and as it grows stronger, it will gain additional effects. Winning or losing will affect your ladder score and changes your current ranking, which can be one of the following (in order):

  • Beginner
  • Amateur
  • Semi-pro
  • Pro
  • All-star
  • Superstar
  • Legend
  • Mythic

Pipsqueak Leon Pipsqueak Orca Pipsqueak Hilla

Three new pets have been added, the Pipsqueak Commander set! It includes Pipsqueak Leon, Pipsqueak Orca, and Pipsqueak Hilla~

            does anyone think the bamon is kinda like Bakugan Dimensions? I mean, you have 3 monsters from your collection on your team, they’ll select a command automatically if you take to long to make your move. Also, the whole “dependent on the mobs level and your capture skill’s level” seems to be like scouting from Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker, which Monster Life’s fusion thing also reminded me of, down to the monsters having Grades (ranks), and the highest rank being SS (I mean, in Joker, there was a rank beyond that, X, but does that really matter)

            Oh guys, I just thought of something. Well, the Critias Skin is probably obtained in Critias, but what about the Digitize Skin? I think I know! Think,what part of the game is a DIGITAL world that you can personalize, can DIGITIZE yourself into. Thats right! DIGITAL Skin could be from the digital world known as the Evolving World! I think it’ll be bought with Evolving Coins in the Evolving Shop. I think the Critias Skin will likewise be available for purchase in one of the two Critias Coin Shops with either Enheim Coins or Critias Commemorative Coins.

    MapleStory now has “Pokemon”-esque Pet Battles? (Similar to WoW)

    OMG! This is exactly the type of unique game system MapleStory needs to make it the best MMORPG game out there..

    I’ve said before, that MapleStory has the potential to be the best MMO, currently no MMO’s are good, not even WoW. They are all utter sh1t.

    But MapleStory, if it gets actual “End-Game”, balanced enjoyable PvP, more character depth, and a new unique Game System, it has the potential to be the best. The groundwork is there, it just has to be polished.

      Yes, very true. Maple right now is pretty much the best 2D game out there and all because of the “greediness” many people talk sh(i)t about Nexon. With these new contents and stuff, it is going to make it far better and make people want to play again.

      • Dark Evan
        July 24, 2013 at 8:44 pm

        they were in the first few promos for RED because the first update, First Impact, updated all 14 adventurer classes that appeared in the vid in some way, and that update in particular was being advertised in addition to the RED update as a whole. Now, the ONLY ad I remember adventurers being in that DOESN’T pertain to the RED revamp, in like, THREE YEARS, was the Root Abyss epic, which had Warrior, Thief, and Dual Blade, but also had Mercedes, Demon Slayer, and I think one more person that I don’t remember. The first animated epic ever, the Chaos PVP ad, didn’t have ANY adventurers, not counting Dual Blader, and other than Dual Blader, just Aran, Mechanic, and Battle Mage were featured. It seemed to symbolize the Heroes getting back at the Resistance for the torture that the then overpowered Resistance put the then underpowered heroes through, saying “haha you were nerfed and we were buffed, you hogged all of the monsters, stopping us from killing ANYTHING, but now WE’RE strong and YOU’RE weak, and now that maple has a PVP mode, there’s nothing to stop us from killing YOU for experience”

    all these numbers flying all over the screen is very obnoxious and annoying!

      Hecaton is what I call a boss. The bosses should be huge (even bigger than screen) and many people should encounter them instead of soloing a boss the size of the player

    Maple is becoming more and more exclusive to the high-lvled, “no-life but Maple” losers.

    sorry but who fucking cares anymore about this stupid ass excuse of a game?

    Certainly not people who can’t make it to 180 or above…..

    Hecaton looks and sounds stupid, and pretty much only the ridiculously funded and OP’d damage wh0res with beast stats and equips will pretty much hog and solo that boss all to themselves anyway.

    Maplestory sucks, period…

      its like this since lvl 1-100 is really easy, but full of content and the true hard levels (150+)
      dont have much content.so nexon try to “balance”.look at how many theme dungeons 30-60 got and look how many 120+ got. its something like 3 while the lower levels have something like 7, and this is only the theme dungeons.training places…almost 80% of the maple world is filled with mobs 1-120 which is less then half of the max level (250) and lvl 200+ got almost nothing at kms.in gms the state is a bit better,but in GMS you must be funded to actually train.

      Here is the English translation:

      I am most certainly upset from the recent changes done unto the Night Lord skill: Quadruple Throw. The skill seems to no longer be as aesthetically pleasing due to its delay changes, to which, also makes much of the visual happenings quite difficult to view upon. It also seems that other characters of the game have far superior offensive capabilities in terms of execution speed. I now wonder how such modifications would change the way Night Lords are played. Quadruple Throw does not seem to have much of the utility compare to what it had beforehand. I am most certainly upset.
