kMSt ver. 1.2.488 – Boss Arena!

Boss Arena

Another Tespia patch has been released, this time with Boss Arena (finally!) and some small changes to Dual Blade/Cannon Shooter. And there’s a Hot Time for the real server so I’ll talk about that too.

Note: I haven’t found any pictures from my usual sources so the ones I’ll be using in my post are ones I’ve put together using in-game data.

Boss Arena UI

Boss Arena is open to all users level 60 or over. It is also a combined world content, meaning you can enjoy it with users from different worlds! There are two rounds, one where you will fight against another player’s boss and another where you will be the one controlling the boss.

It actually looks really fun! You can see a video of it here.

Ani Arkarium Dragon Rider Empress Magnus Van Leon

To join, click the Boss Arena icon on the left side of your screen and matchmaking will find another player with a similar level and score as you. You will then be taken to a map where you can choose one of 6 bosses (the UI is like one of those arcade fighting games haha) and your handicap (a higher one will make your boss’ defense lower but will give you better rewards), after which the fight will begin!

The player controlling the boss will have to exhaust all of the other player’s Death Count, while the regular player will have to defeat the boss by lowering his HP to 0. Whoever completes their goal first (within 5 minutes) will win the round. If there is no winner by that time, one will be chosen based on the boss’ remaining HP and the player’s remaining Death Count.

Each of the 6 bosses has 3 attacks and 5 skills. They all have cooldowns so you’ll have to use them strategically. For players, all movement skills will be disabled but you will be given a Flash Jump skill.

Boss Arena Results

After the 2 rounds are over, an information window will appear. You will be given experience based on your performance.

Boss Arena Emblem

In this patch, a new item called the Boss Arena Emblem was added! I don’t know how to get it exactly but it gives 15 all stats and 3 attack and magic attack. It is level 60 and untradeable.

The weird thing is, all the classes that have Emblems at the moment already receive them for free with basically comparable stats… does this mean that all classes will be able to use this Emblem?

Skill Changes

Dual Blade

  • Phantom Blow Phantom Blow: range has been decreased, effect has been renewed (just to make it shorter to match the range)

Hero's Will Effect

  • Hero's Will Hero’s Will: effect has been renewed

Cannon Shooter

  • Cannon Jump Cannon Jump: distance moved has been returned to normal
  • Cannon Buster Cannon Buster: attack speed has been returned to normal

Hero's Will Effect

  • Hero's Will Hero’s Will: effect has been renewed
  • Rolling Cannon Rainbow Rolling Cannon Rainbow: this skill now ignores Damage Reflect

August 10 Hot Time

On August 10, there will be a Hot Time at 2:30 PM! Be logged in to receive the following prizes.

  • Revolution Belt Gift Set – Revolution Belt (3 to all stats, 4 slots, untradeable, level 80) & 30% Revolution Belt Only Scroll (gives 1 attack and magic attack)
  • 80% RED Weapon Scroll for Attack/Magic Attack (given based on your job, gives 8 attack/magic attack)
  • Gold Potential Stamp
  • Personality Growth Elixir
  • 20 RED Coins

August 10 Lucky Items

And if you’re lucky, you’ll receive one of the following.

  • Zero Android
  • Fafnir Weapon Box
  • RED Weapon Box
  • Level 140 Armor Box
  • Random Adventurer Hair Coupon
  • RED Celebration Red Handkerchief

Maple Royal Style Coupon

In the Cash Shop, a new Maple Royal Style Coupon has been released. If you’re not familiar with it, buying one will give you a random Cash Shop equipment that is in the list at that moment.

Right now, you can get one of the above: a hat, one of two capes, or one of two weapons.

Ice Summer Set

You can also get one of the Ice Summer set equips. These are special because if you collect all 5, you’ll receive 5 all stats and 3 attack and magic attack.

Trendy Royal Hair Coupon

And finally, another Trendy Royal Hair Coupon is now on sale, with the above hairs being available from it.

          Hey Max, what do you mean by “they didn’t do anything to the creation of these two classes. Not yet, anyway”? Do you mean that they still haven’t been made standard adventurers? Didn’t they do that in the FIRST IMPACT, like THREE UPDATES ago?

          • Max
            August 12, 2013 at 2:19 pm

            They are regular adventurers yet, but they still have their own creation buttons.

            I meant they didn’t anything like a new tutorial like regular Adventurers lol, and Cannon Shooter still doesn’t get his hair when you create him, etc.

    Max,

    For both Cannon’s skills, when you said return to normal, does that include using the old animation, or both updated animation are still here just what they did was back to normal?

    Thanks

      Boss Arena is not connected to PVP (as in the in-game place/system) at all.

    Nice update, but the set effect for this ice items kinda concerns me…It’s the first time I’ve seen a Cash Shop equip give combat stats like that. I hope this doesn’t become another “pay to win” trend.

      inb4 they allow cash shop equips have potiental and slots for scrolls

      • August 11, 2013 at 1:35 am

        LOL. It’d drive people nuts if they use it on non-perm items. But then they’d have to work on raising the damage cap…Again. XP Oh, MapleStory~

    Wish they removed or change Nautilus strike since that skill is slow and inferior to all of 4th job cannoneer’s skills. Other than that I like the patch.
