kMS ver. 1.2.211 – Return of the Mystic Gates & The Seed Changes

February 26, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

ver. 1.2.211

This patch is sort of boring, just the last Tespia patch released to the real server. Still no enhancement or potential changes, I guess they’re still being tested.

But there’s some cool events and MapleStory 2 pictures I will also be talking about so read on! Oh and I finally updated my collections page after like… 2 years (I have 100 chairs now!).

Mystic Gate Locations

Mystic Gates have reappeared in Maple World, in Henesys, Pantheon, and Leafre. Join together with other Maplers and fight the bosses in these towns!

Anyone level 75 or higher can participate, and the bosses will appear every weekend in March. Before a boss spawns, a message will be sent to all channels.

Mystic Gate Icon

You can also use the Mystic Gate icon on the left side of your screen to warp to one of the three towns above. However, you can only use this once every 20 minutes.

Mystic Gate UI

Inside the Mystic Gate, you’ll find the NPC Professor Moon, a summoning circle, and the Attack Ranking. When a boss spawns, fight it to appear on the Attack Ranking! A boss will appear for 15 minutes before disappearing if it isn’t defeated in time.

If you die inside the Mystic Gate, you won’t lose experience but you’ll respawn back in town. You can reenter the Mystic Gate an unlimited number of times.

Mystic Gate Researcher and Master

Professor Moon will have some quests for you to complete. There’s one for each of the 5 bosses that can spawn (Zakum, Horntail, Hilla, Van Leon, Arkarium), each awarding you with experience based on your level (once per day). You also get 20 Cross Coins for the first boss you defeat per day.

He also has two medal quests, the first is the Mystic Gate Researcher medal which gives 5 all stats, 3 attack and magic attack. You can get it by opening 100 boss items from Mystic Gates. The second is the Mystic Gate Master medal which gives 10 all stats, 4 attack and magic attack. This one requires 200 boss item.

Note: these quests will carry over any progress from the last time Mystic Gates were here!

Boss Reward Items

Based on the damage you have done, you might appear on the Attack Ranking! Your place will determine the amount of boss items you’ll get. First place gets 6, second place gets 5, third place gets 4, fourth place gets 3, fifth place gets 2, and everyone else will get 1.

However, if you do no damage, you will not get a prize.

Boss Rewards

You can open these boss items for a variety of rewards, depending on which boss was defeated!

Alicia and the Seed

The undersea tower, The Seed, has received some changes to make it simpler to access and more enticing to Maplers! First of all, some of the early floors (1, 2, 3, 4, 7) have had their difficulty adjusted to make it easier to reach higher floors.

Seed Practice Entrance Ticket

Glinda now sells new Seed Practice Entrance Tickets. These can be used to enter a practice version of any floor (other than the 1st, any rest floors, any boss floors, or anything above floor 40).

Completing a practice room will not allow you to enter the next floor, nor will it give you any prizes. Any Hazy Stones you have equipped will be used up when entering. Finley will not appear in practice floors.

World and Channel Select Screen

Finally, for the first time in a long time, the world/channel select screen has been updated!

Look, you can see my new world Luna, which is a combination of Khaini, Plana, Stius, Windia, Galicia/Medere/Culverin/Fleta, and Meriel/Leona/Aster (so yeah… pretty big).

Elite Boss Souls

Oh and Boss Souls have been added for the five Elite Bosses.

Auction House Quick Move

The Auction House has been added to the Quick Move UI. If you’re not on channel 19 already, it will automatically teleport you there.

March Royal Hair

The March Royal Hairs have been released!

Trendy Royal Faces

There’s also the Trendy Royal Faces.

Chihuahua Pets

The new Cookie, Caramel, and Choco Huahua pets have been released!

Come to the Mission!! Event

A new event called Come to the Mission!! has begun and will run until March 27. Basically, each day you can complete a daily quest for 30 Scroll Traces, up to 3 times per day.

The quests are really easy, and they generally require you to either: party with someone of a specific level, job, fame, etc., or get a certain Combo Kill or Multi Kill.

Honey Honey! Event

And this is the Honey? Honey! event, I actually think its super cute and fun! It will run until March 13.

Butterfly's Honey

To participate, you’ll have to collect Butterfly’s Honey by killing monsters around your level, but it’s not an item drop. Think of it like WP from monsters for Zero, or collecting souls for Soul Weapons. When the bar fills up, you get 1 Honey.

Butterflies don’t make honey… so I guess this event has to do with beeterflies? Butterbees? Beeflies?

My Unique Butterfly

You can use your honey in the Unique Butterfly window! Basically, everyone gets their own butterfly to customize and play with~ Each option changes one part of the butterfly randomly (from left to right its antennae, face, body, wings).

The last option is ‘play’ and gives 3 hearts to your butterfly.

Honey Butterfly Riding

Everyone also receives a special Honey Butterfly riding mount (which can also fly) for free! It’s permanent and its appearance will be based off of your unique butterfly!

There’s so many choices and combinations, I don’t know how I’ll decide what I’m gonna go with…

Butterfly Gifts

If you get 10 hearts in one day, you can also get a special gift from your butterfly.

Butterfly Titles

Each day you get 10 hearts, you qualify for a new title! These actually have really great stats, but sadly, they expire 30 days after you get them…

The first one gives 4 all stats, 1 attack and magic attack while the last gives 10 all stats and 7 attack and magic attack!

Empress Ereb

Let’s move on to MapleStory 2. Oooh its information about that girl from previous pictures! I guess people were right when they thought she was an Empress, I guess she’s the first Empress of Maple World since her name is actually Ereb! The island was named after her?

It was then.
There was an aura of sadness in her eyes when she passed by.
Even those she was talking with could not notice that one moment.
Quickly, Ereb returned to looking happy with her bright and gentle smile, and the Empress’ Garden regained its warm sunshine.
But after walking away, she seemed different than usual.
Like a little bird trembling before a storm’s waves.

With a responsibility to take care of the world’s well-being, the dedication and respect of everyone in Maple World, it might be too much weight for her fragile shoulders.

In the Traia Palace’s Garden stood someone unknown.
She shook with fear as she saw the identity of the threat.

Bella Vid-Bleim

Look, it’s Bella again! This one gives a bit of her backstory, which actually seems sad…

Sometimes, my head hurts like its about to break.

Each time it happens, a faint memory resurfaces.
A rough white beard against my cheek, a hug with a warm smile, promising me that no matter what, he’d protect me.

But my life, the meaning of my existence, was taken away from me and thrown away by them.
My hatred will never stop.

Even though I am here now, I will strike fear into their hearts and throw them into the flames of hatred with my own hands.

      All their resources are being directed towards the development and testing of Maple Story II.

    This patch was relatively disappointing since it was nothing but, events and some minor tweaks to certain mechanics. While these tweaks are necessary in some regard they are underwhelming compared to what KMS what had released around this time last year. It seems that ever since after RED their updates per month have been getting smaller and smaller. While You And I was finally a bigger update akin to the ones they had in the past, updates like Fly had such little impact that it seems almost forgettable, let alone the news years patch they had after you and I was also small as well since it was nothing but events, and cash sales. I hope the reason KMS has taken so long to come up with another update is because they are working on something big for March/April, like the Night Walker and Blaze Wizard revamp. Seriously it has been a year since Kms revamped the other three knights, and BW and NW have been left in a state of limbo, I believe that its about time that BW and NW finally get their revamp instead of left to rot for another month in place of yet again another filler patch.

        I agree i really liked my blaze wizard back in the day i’d like the chance to enjoy it again, i feel like they just threw away nw’s n bw’s. I’d also like to see aran’s and evans get a link skill respectably, every other hero has one i think they’re entitled to one too.

      You should actually be very happy about the small updates. Smaller updates every month, mean just one thing: Bigger half-year updates (bigger Winter and bigger Summer updates). Because of these small updates, we’ll be getting a huge update at Summer. They’re preparing something big, for sure. It’s also better to have smaller updates every month, and have bigger updates at Summer and Winter. Also, hewtru, MapleStory II is being developed by a totally different team in different offices (according to what Nexon said), so MapleStory II development shouldn’t affect MapleStory’s development speed.

      • John
        March 15, 2014 at 11:02 am

        Smaller updates doesn’t mean we are entitled to get bigger updates at all.. Maybe it’s pessimistic but I think they just have no idea what they are doing. *shrugs*

      • March 16, 2014 at 2:17 am

        I see. Then I see one of two things: One, Nexon ran out of ideas and are tactically stalling time. or Two, “they are holding the best for last.”

        Also do you got source on the bit about MapleStory II’s development team? Sorry for being dense, I must have missed it. ” ^ ^

    Personally I don’t mind a small update like this every so often, but unfortunately the updates that they have been coming out with lately have been very lazy and uninspired lately. I am not asking for a massive update each month like the summer or winter patches rather I would like to see updates that add more then one or two minor tweaks to the game akin to the Cygnus Returns update we had around this time last year, Evolution world, etc.

  18. Reine
    March 14, 2014 at 5:19 pm

    Sick of these small updates. I know it’s not the fault of the people reporting it, but I’m still sick of it. BlueRay101, I’m the complete opposite. I’m NOT happy about these small patches because it means bigger ones later. It doesn’t seem to mean they’re coming out with bigger patches lately. These boring patches are just Nexon being lazy ever since they finished RED and announced MapleStory 2. The winter patch this year wasn’t all that big compared to other winter/summer patches, and if that was small, the summer patch won’t be much better. So it’s not that they’re just working on something bigger and better. The only highlights were SEED and EunWol (the revamps in You and I aren’t highlights. They’re just damage tweaks). Other winter/summer patches gave us several new areas, several new classes, new skills, and still gave us damage revamps. During the rest of the year in those years, we got a new class or two, new features, new areas, AND revamps. All we’ve been getting lately are minor tweaks. It seems like they’re putting all their resources in MapleStory 2, which CONSTANTLY announces new features or highlights. I’m pretty sure they reassigned the MS staff to the MS2 staff since they announced it. It’s too convenient that it gets news and highlights all the time and MS gets a trickle here and there.

    Maplestory 2 is gonna suck balls people.
    Not only that but Nexon’s brand flagship game Maplestory itself is slowly going to wether and die like most MMOs these days

    Gamers are finally waking up and realize what a crock of shit/money burning pile of shit these FREE to PLAY, PAY TO WIN games are doing to thier wallets and savings accounts especially in a shitty economy dictated by ObamaCare

    The END IS HEAR brothas and sistas, its time to embrace the darkness that called Government runned healthcare aka “Obama Care”

    March 19, 2014 at 2:38 am

    nice funny haha yea

    anyway, these patches post-RED seem REALLY fucking lame to be honest with you here.

    pretty much in YOU and I, Nexon is taking away all the good things like Monster Park, and Monster Park Extreme and other things like Root Abyss and whatever good systems for the lower lvls (under 100s) as a means to grinding EXP like mad.

    and you know the funny thing is, they done this crap before, they had Monster Park and Monster Park Extreme’s lvl cap increased based on popularity and then decreased it just becus they can right? lol right… or maybe enough people complained about it being too hard to grind to lvl100 get to use Extreme or Monster Park.

    Now that theres are too many elite lifeless losers making lvl200+ characters with ease,

    You have nothing BUT lifeless lvl160 to 200+ losers like you people running around in high lvled areas like Commerci Town, or Root Abyss, or Hall of Honor, or Future Perion grinding for mad hax exp, or farming and crafting overly priced godly shit like Fafnir weps, Seawater weps, along with mass amounts money put into potential cubes and the ever annoying and obnoxious ego stroking via item megaphones showing the whole community what a fucking loser you are for having invested so much into creating a ridiculously hacked weapon made from your life savings and weekly paychecks from your minimum waged losers jobs.

    On top of that, now Nexon is making or forcing solo maplers or solo antisocial users like myself to have to grind and KS our way around popular maps again

    that or do mind-numbing, hair-pulling Party Quests with complete fucking useless idiots for which most dont even fucking speak English.

    I really feel that most English maplers have abandoned this game… Its fucking sad.

    GMS may as well just rebrand themselves as LATINO MAPLESTORY, since its completely crawling with them beaners like a plague. Sorry if thats sound racist but I speak the facts.

    Finally time to quit for good… See ya later fuckers lol

  21. March 19, 2014 at 3:00 pm

    Nexon’s purpose to keep you hook to the game as much as possible
    hence the redundantly stupid events for farming coins to get special limited event-only items, scrolls, equips, and weapon sets like in Legends, Tempest and RED

    Grinding like a brainless zombie forcing you to buy 2x exp coupons to minimize the pain and time wasting suffering to get to your desired levels.

    And it would be no surprise to know that some of these “lifeless losers” you speak probably works at Nexon as a means to goat naive users like you into further mind fuck pychology to make you more addictive to the brutally competitive nature of the game.

    “This is my design” (Hannibal show reference lol)

    Dont hate the players, Hate the game dude.
