kMSt ver. 1.2.489 – World Merged Party Quests, Hero & Resistance Changes!

September 6, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

MapleStory Resistance

A new patch has been released in Tespia, this time bringing world merged party quests (although only Moon Bunny’s Rice Cake and First Accompaniment are available right now) along with skill updates to some heroes, Battle Mage, Wild Hunter, and Mechanic!

I’m sorry for the late post but I have been super busy this week with moving to university and such, and will probably be even more busy when classes start… my posts may be very late. I’m sort of debating to pause this blog for the moment until I can decide if I have enough time to keep it up, but I’ll try for now!

Party Quest Union Entrance

Party quests are now world merged! Participate in them with characters from other worlds~ After clearing them, you’ll receive experience based on your level and Party Points which can be used to buy certain items. But you cannot party with characters that have a difference of 20 or more levels.

Items you can buy with Party Points include:

  • Gooey Shoes (Lv. 60)
  • Rainbow Rice Cake on Your Head (Lv. 100)
  • Moon Bunny and Slime Chair
  • 60% Party Quest One-handed/Two-handed Weapon for Attack/Magic Attack
  • 100% Party Quest One-handed/Two-handed Weapon for Attack/Magic Attack
  • Party Quest Damage Skin

Let’s move on to the skill changes. I think that the ones for Phantom and Luminous don’t count, and they didn’t even touch Aran haha. Maybe future patches?

          they are forgetting the real issues like battle kings bar that should have been changed into a toggle skill because it is so frustrating trying to use it after finishing blow while trying to maximize BaMs speed -_- and some hyper buffs for finishing blow

          • Anonymous
            September 8, 2013 at 9:05 pm

            Can you really complain when they did something similar back when they changed BaMs to have the more mechanized staffs/RGB Auras/Rock Fists and everyone hated it? They probably thought everyone hated auto-use Hypers and decided to not make it toggle-able.

          • Me, Mario!
            September 9, 2013 at 1:19 pm

            I think is press 2 buttons than just spam skill, its boring. I agree with the buffs for FB. BaM’s passive buffs sucks

            September 10, 2013 at 12:52 pm

            i actually liked those skill replacements that they had done in that kmst reorganization patch for BaMs one they were faster and two i hate having to press a button constantly after another for a powerful attack the auto attack of battle kings bar was brilliant and the fist was a great skill it had a great range and was extremely powerful now they are trying to link attack skills making it even more annoying i like holding down a button and it doing the attack that idea is great. they could have done a lot better with this reorganization this is pathetic thus far hopefully with the real patch they have some useful things

            What kind of person actually WANTS to just hold down a single key all day? Its one of the main issues people have with maple.

            September 11, 2013 at 6:30 pm

            a toggleable battle kings bar would be great if you want you can press as many different buttons as you please but having skills that have to be used directly after a next one is annoying AF, and please speak for yourself and not the entire maple community

          • John
            September 12, 2013 at 7:53 pm

            agree with everyone above, Sweeping Staff/BKB should autochain into Finishing Blow. If you just wanted FB you could just use that like say if you were mobbing, while if you were bossing you could just hold down SS/BKB and it would chain automatically.

            Otherwise the Battle Mage revamp looks pretty awesome and there’s not much else we need improved. =/

            September 21, 2013 at 6:42 pm

            You all sound lazy and/or spoiled by having too much stuff to do your work for you. The only skill that would and should auto-activate while you attack is a weak final attack that happens as you do your attacks. BKB is pretty much a complete attack that is super powerful and, just like aerial attacks, needs a prerequisite as a price to pay to use its powerfulness. Skill is required here, not that auto-combo stuff you see in some fighting games now where you just hold down or rapidly tap a button and watch awesome combos [which you aren’t even causing] and damage fly.

            Also yes, the choice of just doing the traditional finishing blow is really good (ever notice how bkb in gms has been read as 2 attacks by the bot-prevention system? Can only do 33 full combo attacks in 1 spot as you pound a boss in from an ideal spot before you have to reposition yourself…)

      Why isn’t there Aran…most of the skills look outdated, they should at least have some appreciation.

      • Anonymous
        September 8, 2013 at 9:08 pm

        Arans got a LOT of buffs last time, are barely ever nerfed, good all-around, and their skills look fine.

        • September 8, 2013 at 11:46 pm

          They’re still the weakest and most vulnerable of all the warrior classes–the most recent patch crippled them in several respects, and they have the lowest potential damage among all warriors as well. “Good all-around?” No. Not by a long shot.

          Get you facts straight before posting anything =.=
          Or since you are on a roll you should also tell everyone that Kaisers dmp is low and Luminous is a slow class with no way of getting around!

        What’s interesing is that Big Cruch Aura’s Hebrew Character is actually flipped upside down then flipped right to left. Then it represents the character “Aleph”, which symbolizes strength. Just something interesting I saw XD.

      • knite
        September 6, 2013 at 2:41 am

        cept then they wouldn’t be able to combo as easily. It’d be better if they just had a longer and faster combat step

    • Nar
      September 6, 2013 at 6:53 am

      I’m really curious about this one as well… Because advanced strike is at like 150% damage I believe, so if they buffed strike to 200%… Well that just would make sense haha

    Can’t they just increase Finishing Blow’s damage for battle mage?
    And what’s the point to have Big Crunch Aura when you still have Super Body? .__.

    • September 6, 2013 at 7:57 am

      yea, im wondering the same thing. since we have perma body boost, what’s the point of this ‘new skill’ if we can’t use it … at all?

      • Xcod
        September 6, 2013 at 11:13 am

        I dont think so, the last update increased auras’ effects but not the duration time. So you can use 2 of these skills alternatively. The difference is Big Crunch aura will also grant the enhanced effect to party member while Super Body not

        • Xcod
          September 6, 2013 at 11:19 am

          Okay I might be wrong with the Super Body’s time duration. This new skill is pointless if you are not in a party

          • Me, Mario!
            September 6, 2013 at 3:53 pm

            Actually, SUPER BODY is useless, cause Big Crunch Aura is really better. 30x boost!!!!

          • Ivangold
            September 6, 2013 at 4:25 pm

            30x boost is insane i think it may be 3x

          • Anonymous
            September 6, 2013 at 11:43 pm

            What came into my mind was that they could just move the effects of Big Crunch Aura into Super Body and making other buffing skills that adds attack or whatever.

        • September 7, 2013 at 2:00 am

          right..say the 30x was a typo and it really just meant 3x. in which case is still heaps better than BB’s 2x. does that render BB redundant then..?

          • Me, Mario!
            September 9, 2013 at 1:21 pm

            Thats NEXON logic 🙂

        • John
          September 12, 2013 at 7:47 pm

          I think Big Crunch Aura is just a boost to Hyper Body.. Hyper Body was double the effects of auras while Big Crunch Aura should be 3X.. And I doubt it works on party members. (but I don’t play KMS so someone would have to check to be sure)

      This late revamp may do it really stronger than the other. Only a idea, I dont know. Or they just forgot mages and thiefs

      • Dark Evan
        September 11, 2013 at 2:13 am

        They already forgot mages and thieves before, and they’ve forgotten archers and pirates as well. Why can’t they forget warriors for a change? Seriously, HALF the classes released since demon slayer were WARRIORS. This is NO EXAGGERATION. Don’t believe me? there were six warriors released since Demon Slayer, Slayer, Mihile, Kaiser, Hayato, Avenger, and Zero. There were only JUST AS MANY characters who WEREN’T WARRIORS, six, with Phantom, Jett, Luminous, Angelic Buster, Kanna, and Xenon. Furthermore, there is 11+ warriors in the game, and the next most plentiful class is Magician, which has 8 different classes, 7 if you don’t count blaze wizards, that means, that there is less than 75% of any other class that there is warriors. Furthermore, there are only 5 thieves, 4 if you don’t count xenon. Furthermore, there is a Warrior for EVERY single character order. No other class has been able to say that since Mihile was released, since, for the first time, there was a warrior of a job order that did not have a mage as well, or was going to have one soon after. Worse, there are TWO job orders currently ONLY having warriors in them, orders that are not likely to EVER get another member.

        To add insult to injury, nexon, knowing FULL WELL that Warriors already GROSSLY OUTNUMBERED anything else, released A WARRIOR FOR RED, a warrior that was made ABSOLUTELY CLEAR would be the ONLY Child of God Class EVER! Despite warriors already being almost certainly the only one with a Chief Knight class, due to a combination of the unpopularity of Mihile, as well as their coincidental decision to release Mihile first out of the five.

        They have so many different directions to go with the classes, that are somewhat original compared to the crud they’ve been pulling. Seriously, all these warriors with the same slashing animations? If your going to pump out at least two warriors a year, then get started on the scythe-wielding class everyone’s been wanting, or, I know! how about a class that specializes in 2h bw/axes.
        There’s a few untapped ideas in other places too. Like, the Child of God, could’ve been a Temporal Mage. Another Mage we don’t have yet is a Druid. We’re also missing a summoner. What about a Water,Wind, and/or Earth Mage? There’s even a few ideas in the Thief, Archer, and Pirate department. An Archer that uses a Slingshot? No? How about a Boomerang? Javelin Thrower? What about a Pirate Wielding a Cutlass? No? How about a Musket? Or bombs? A theif using Nunchucks? Tonfa? Senbon? Dagger with Chain? Some sort of energy around the fists that makes the wielder a Martial arts expert?

        So many good ideas and fresh ideas for other classes, and even a few warrior ideas that are fresh compared to the ones nexon has been implementing, despite having made 11 warriors. You’d think that they’d use up all the good ideas first before coming up with lame ones themselves

            November 30, 2013 at 12:54 am

            They should also make a class that is like a botanist. I know it sounds lame, But chucking venus fly traps and using giant poison spitting flowers seems kind of fun to me. Also, maybe a class based out of aqua road that weilds a trident and has water stuff? Hybrid class like xenon of mage and warrior

    Is that party shield buff a passive effect? Doesn’t make much sense if it only came into effect when you were in the shield. 0.o

        September 7, 2013 at 6:57 am

        100% stance is okay, but wh’s are not supposed to tank damage for the sake of it… with the new skill “Draw Back” it gives even more motivation for whs to hide at far range to snipe enemies, Moreover, the new juguar provides resistance to status and all, which is a real big deal unless you (1) already have 100% status resist or (2) love to buff all the bloody time during boss-fights when they dispel the s0o-many-damm-buffs wh’s have.

    Can I ask you a question Max? We recently got the link management skill in gms and I was under the impression that you could move all of your link skills by just logging on the character you wanted it on instead of logging on every character to move the link skills. I don’t know if the one in gms is bugged or if it really wasn’t what people thought it was :\

    • Xcod
      September 6, 2013 at 11:22 am

      The one GMS received was correct, in KMS you still have to log in every character to move link skill. The only reason this skill appeared was to cut down the length of beginner skills.

      • knite
        September 6, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    NEW! Big Crunch Aura (4th): Maximize the effects of all your current Auras for 150 seconds, increasing their boosts by 30x. This skill cannot be used if Super Body is active. There is a cooldown of 90 seconds. (max level: 10)

  53. Lawl random asian passing by
    September 8, 2013 at 12:06 am

    I think nexon probably typed it wrong for big crunch aura…It it’s 30x then it would give
    With decent CO
    Dark aura boost
    21*30= 630 damage…
    51*30= 1530 percent chance of producing dot…
    265*30= 7950 dot damage…
    Yellow aura boost
    36*30= 1080 walk speed
    2*30= 60 attack speed
    21*30= 630 dodge rate
    31*30= 930 enemy speed lowered
    Blue aura boost
    300*30= 9000 def boost
    250*30= 7500 hp boost
    66*30= 1980 percent def boost
    assuming that passives get buffed too
    you’d get another 660% resistance to status effects and elements
    930 passive magic attack
    1260 dodge rate for yourself
    If dot stack is also multiplied you get 120 stacks of dot with it dealing 7950 damage every 1 second. You probably won’t get all 120 stacks on in a mere 8 seconds but assuming you are using twister which has 180ms(I think or is final blow plus BKB faster? I don’t really know) along with the new final attack attached to genesis you get…I’m too lazy to do the math so I’ll steal off joetang’s chart (which is outdated I know) 16.54 hits + 9.924 (60%) = 26.464 hits per second so you can get 27 hits (rounded up) * 8 which is 216…(holy crap so it’s possible to get all 120 stacks in half the time) just counting the dot your damage per second is roughly 7950(damage) *120(hits of dot assuming all stacks)…954000% (lol what)
    so say you have a capped 2m~2m damage range 15900000000 per hit of dot. Then there is the damage cap. But say you’re not using any equipment or skill that changes the damage cap you still hit 50m*120 hits per second which is 6000000000 dps as reference cygnus + her lackeys have 107100000000 hp in total so if it’s like this you can kill cygnus and her lackeys in 17.85 seconds. even if the dots don’t get multiplied you still get 630% damage.
    So in order to cap you’d only need a 3174 (2000000/630) range which you’d most likely have passed by the time you hit 4th job even if you’re naked and is using a beginner staff.

    tl;dr if big crunch aura really is x30 then the entire game would be completely broken.

        Anti-cancer responses are about as annoying as cancer posts, really. “No, just no.”

        Let me be specific for you:

        You’re training during 2x.
        People visit, people go (just looking for free channels).
        One visitor does not go away and begins attacking mobs (specifically KSing you).
        You ask the trademark “cc please”.
        His response (if you get any) is the new TrollFace emote.

        As if it wasn’t already bad enough with the immature portion of the Maple community.

        Under different circumstances, however, I wouldn’t mind the emotes when chatting with friends.

    Well lets see here

    We got 3 out of 5 Cygnus Knights nicely Revamped, with new improved tutorials and questlines and skills,

    Then the 5 Adventurers + Cannoneers and Dual Blades…

    Now we need Aran and Evan getting the same treatment… and the Resistance, though Resistance was fine just the way they were when we first got them, plus a few improvements and buff along the way.

    It would be nice if Guild PQ aka Sharenian Castle was made into a seperate Theme Dungeon,

    that way each area/town of Victoria Island now has a theme dungeon,

    Mushroom Castle for near Henesys,

    Kerning Sqaure at Kerning City,

    Ellinel Academy near Ellinia,

    ???? ??????? place near Perion? in the Future???

    Gold Beach near Nautlis/Florina Beach
    (even though not shown in world map but the theme is relatively similar Beach like)

    Sleepywood could use a theme dungeon, though Root Abyss is pretty much like one just boss theme dungeon, just no questline or maps with mobs to train on…

    Oh yea and like Crimsonwood Keep theme dungeon for lvl130+ having a PQ at the end of its questline,

    The mechanic update makes me wanna cry. I love my mech and i never made it for damage but we dont excell at anything. We are really at the bottom in every aspect i mean in siege mode we can barely move wich make us really bad at end game bosses.

    Even if they would make us 2x strong we would still be low in DPM, that says something. I love this class but i also love bossing and just the fact that i need to put in 3x more funding to make this almost as good makes sick.
    This class was made to be strong and slow not slow and weak.

    Nexon has some sorta of issue with pirates but especially mechanics i was really looking forward to a good rewamp since Mech deserve the best rewamp ever made in Maple.
    We never get anything, its tiring seeing all other classes getting rewamps after rewamps.

    We should get max crit dmg, more dmg on siege mode and dont even let me start on Distortion bomb =.=
    I really hope nexon is just teasing mech with stupid rewamps like 5% on lazer cause they got big plans in store for us but i hiiiiiiiiiiiighly doubt it.

    Does anyone know how to get in contact with KMS or something? cause i really want all of us mech lovers out there to send in rewamp ideas for mech since they cant come up with it themselves.

    As usual Mech get the short end of the stick… let me rephrase that> We never got any stick at all short or long.. We just get mud thrown in our face!
