kMS ver. 1.2.212 – Freud’s Diary & the Onyx Ring!

MapleStory Freud

A new patch has been released to the real server, but it is again just events. Don’t worry though, this one is actually very cool and super interesting! It’s honestly a great event and I hope there’s going to more like it in the future.

In addition, another MapleStory 2 teaser has been released, this time with the first BGM of the game!

Freud's Diary - Onyx Ring

The event that has begun is called Freud’s Diary – the Onyx Ring, and it runs until April 23. It details Freud’s adventures after the Black Mage was sealed away and he was left alone uncursed. This event is both story-related and it gives a great item!

Episode 1 Rewards

It starts with you finding an old soldier named Anello being attacked by the Dark Warrior Mokadin (one of the Elite Bosses). After you save him, he gives you a few items.

  • Onyx Ring “Encounter” – 1 all stats, 10 HP and MP, 20 defense and magic defense (summons the Element Onyx, the little ball of light near the character)
  • Damage Skin Storage Scroll – allows you to store one Damage Skin inside it while you are using another, you can switch them out at any time (scroll expires in 90 days)
  • Freud’s Diary

The Onyx Ring is the basis of this event, as you bond with it, it evolves and gets better stats. But along the way, Freud’s words come to you in the form of his diary, and they’re actually really sad…

We fought together to save the world,
It wasn’t perfect but we were able to achieve our goal.
As a result, my friends received a curse.
A friend shielded me and thus I am still here, alone.

One day you will return, my friends,
Aran, Mercedes, Phantom, Luminous,
and Afrien…
People will not forget you,
I will leave a part of my memory here.

One day, these memories will remind others of you.

This is the first part, after getting the “Encounter” ring.

Episode 2 Onyx Ring's Growth

You can begin to upgrade the ring right away. The 1st Growth  is available from March 27 to April 23, but the 2nd Growth can only be unlocked after April 3.

1st Growth Onyx Ring 'Share'

In order to upgrade to the Onyx Ring “Share”, you must defeat 999 monsters for Anello. It gives 2 all stats, 20 HP and MP, and 10% chance to inflict a status condition.

After doing so, you’ll be able to choose an element for your ring. Each element gives a chance to inflict a different status condition, and at the 2nd growth, they will give different stats.

  • Fire: chance to inflict Slow (2nd Growth – maximum critical damage increase)
  • Lightning: chance to inflict Stun (2nd growth – critical chance increase)
  • Ice: chance to inflict Freeze (2nd growth – minimum critical damage increase)
  • Earth: chance to inflict Blind (2nd growth – resistance to statuses and elements)
  • Poison: chance to inflict Poison (2nd growth – defense ignore increase)
  • Light: chance to inflict Seal (2nd growth – boss damage increase)

Choosing your element can only be done once and cannot be changed. The colour of the Onyx which is summoned when you wear the ring will change based on the element.

The situation is not going as well as you’d think.
The Black Mage was sealed, but evil is still running rampant accross the continent.
Most people have left, in search of a new continent to call home.
Some people could not leave, without suffering.

Do you know what I can do for the remaining people?
Helping everyone…
My strength and time are too limited.

There is not much I can do for the ones who are alone…

My friend who always gave me strength when I was down.
It was all thanks to Afrien that I was able to fight the Black Mage along with my friends.
Afrien I wish you were here…

I have decided.
I will travel and help those in need.
And maybe someday, someone else who loves Maple World like me
Can have another Afrien within this ring,
Which I leave with some of my own strength.

Here’s the second entry of Freud’s diary, unlocked after the 1st growth.

2nd Growth Onyx Ring 'Growth'

You can upgrade your “Share” ring to the Onyx Ring “Growth” after April 3 by defeating 1 Normal Zakum. Now, the ring will gain the specific stat I mentioned above, 10% to be exact (e.g. 10% critical chance increase, 10% boss damage, etc). These rings are like Dojo gloves in that their stats are given through ‘Special Potential’ and cannot be cubed.

The “Growth” Ring gives 3 all stats, 30 HP and MP, 1 attack and magic attack, with 20% chance to inflict the status. It gains 10 slots and the ability to level up (to a max of level 5). After levelling up fully, the ring will give an extra 7 all stats, 70 HP/MP, and 4 attack/magic attack.

The Onyx will reach its final form, a fairy. This effect will not appear if you have another item such as the Angelic Blessing equipped.

I don’t have the diary entry from this part yet (because I can’t upgrade it) but I can add it if you guys are interested.

Befriending the Onyx Ring

There are also a bunch of side quests you can do while this event is going on. The first is Befriending the Onyx Ring, which requires you to hold an item for 30 minutes. After completing this, you can choose one of three buffs: one that gives 1.5x experience, one that gives 30 attack, or one that gives 30 magic attack, all lasting 30 minutes.

You can do this up to 4 times per day.

Onyx Ring Training

There’s also the Onyx Ring Training, from Anello. Each day, he will give you the choice of one of 5 different options to train your Onyx Ring.

  • Defeat 300 monsters around your level
  • Clear Monster Park 3 times
  • Complete [Befriending the Onyx Ring] one time
  • Defeat Easy Zakum
  • Get 100+ Combo Kill

Completing it will give you the choice of a certain prize depending on the week.

1st~2nd Week (March 27 – April 9)

  • Mastery Book 20
  • Mastery Book 30
  • Eternal Flame of Reincarnation (can only be chosen as a prize once per week)

3rd Week (April 10 – April 16)

  • Onyx Stone of XXX (a 100% scroll for the Onyx Ring “Growth” which gives 8 STR/DEX/INT/LUK/400 HP/4 all stats)

4th Week (April 17 – April 23)

  • Onyx Stone of Attack (100% scroll for the Onyx Ring “Growth” which gives 1 attack)
  • Onyx Stone of Magic Attack (100% scroll for the Onyx Ring “Growth” which gives 1 magic attack)

Anello's Weekly Goals

Anello also has weekly goals for you to meet, and if you do, he’ll give you prizes!

  • Week 1 (March 27 – April 23): get the Onyx Ring “Share”
    • Sweet Damage Skin
  • Week 2 (April 3 – April 23): get the Onyx Ring “Encounter”
    • Impactive Damage Skin
  • Week 3 (April 10 – April 23): defeat Normal Hilla
    • Keyboard Warrior Damage Skin
    • 8 Slot Title Bag
    • 8 Slot Chair Bag
    • Miracle Circulator
  • Week 4 (April 17 – April 23): defeat Black Warrior Mokadin and Assault-bot CQ57 (Elite Bosses)
    • Reminescence Damage Skin
    • Black Cube

Who Am I

Another fun little event that is related is called the Who Am I? event, and it runs until April 9. Basically, on the homepage, you can access this cute minigame where each day, you have 10 seconds to enter the name of the NPC shown, for 10 NPCs in total. You can ask for a hint and it will give you the consonants (or like… the Korean equivalent I guess) of their name.

After all 10 NPCs have been shown, it will count up your right answers and give you 50 Mileage for each correct one! That’s 500 per day if you get them all right, 7000 for the whole event haha.

Also, if you get 100 correct in total or more, you’ll receive a free Rainbow Nametag Ring and Rainbow Chat Ring.

Experience Coupon Great Giveaway

Also, the Experience Coupon Great Giveaway!! event has begun and will run until April 20. Every Saturday and Sunday during this event, you’ll receive 6 free 30 minute 2x Experience Coupons!

April Royal Hair Trendy Royal Faces

In the Cash Shop, the April Royal Hairs and the Trendy Royal Faces of this month have been released.

Finally, for MapleStory 2, they have released the Sweet Breeze BGM, which is stated to be for Henesys! There’s also a cute animation of a slime~ Thanks to x3TheAran59 for the video.

      Where is the blaze wizard and night walker revamp!!!

      • Dark Evan
        March 28, 2014 at 9:27 pm

        Who cares?! This event is WAY better than a stupid revamp to some classes which the devs can take as long as they like balancing considering no one plays them bc 1. they haven’t been makable for a YEAR 2. as they are currently, they are essentially rehashes of Fire Poison Arch Mage and Night Lords, and 3. much weaker versions of the nearly identical F/Ps and NLs at that. Why can’t appeasing a portion of the playerbase that is very near nonexistent wait till AFTER this EPIC event.

        As an Self Proclaimed Mir-Acle Master and Evan-guard, Dragon Master’s History Historian, and expert on all things related to Onyx Dragon or Spirit Pact Related, I MUST have this event in GMS! I MUST get the rest of this diary! He wishes for someone who loves the Maple World as much as he does to get the ring, for it to give them strength and confidence like afrien did to him? As an Evan, I MUST get that Onyx Ring! Btw, does anyone else see that the 8 mainstat rock can outclass the 1 atk rather easily? On my Evan, 5 stat is already worth about 2 atk, or something, so it might as well just be chaosed if your set on atk. Now, I’ll have to choose which element to get. Hmm… Fire is Evans main element and i could use the max crit dmg i suppose, and i think slow works on bosses. But Earth is decent thematically, and I WANT extra status resist, but not sure blinding works on bosses. Lastly Poison is the only one of these elements that mir DOESN’T use, and Onyx Dragons are supposed to be OMNI-ELEMENTAL, and more PDR is ALWAYS helpful, especially if you want to go with friends to CVellum or the Foolish /Stupid Scarecrow or whatever the Oz character was [idea: what if they made SEED Origins or SEED Beginings or Prologue to the SEED that was based on Oz:the Great and Powerful] but I’m pretty sure poison doesn’t work on bosses (ik the poison dot that replaced the poison status on nearly every skill works on bosses, but methinks that potential type lines use the OLD poison status. Even so, i’m pretty sure boss tags are being removed from party play mobs in You & I, bc 1. with the entire maple world becoming party play, there won’t be anything left to use things that bosses are immune to on, 2. they lowered the instant death rates considerably bc of the higher health mobs, if they were all immune to it then why would it even matter, and 3. if they were ALL boss tagged then quite a few skills would be worthless, and they might as well REMOVE the tags and make the DEFAULT [as in , no tags] do the same things that boss tags did)

        • Dark Evan
          March 28, 2014 at 9:59 pm

          Hey Max, which Elite Boss is Assault-bot CQ57? I assume Black Warrior Mokadin is the Warrior, and based on Pirate’s Tech affinity, I guess Assault-bot CQ57 might be the Pirate? Am I right? If not, is he the Thief, Mage, or Archer? Thank you in advance!
          PS, Are elite bosses difficult to locate and/or defeat? If so, it’ll be HORRIBLE having to seek out and kill/destroy TWO SPECIFIC ones in a week!
          And I really wanted that Luminescence skin on my Evan too.

          • Max
            March 28, 2014 at 10:41 pm

            It’s the thief.

            They’re ok to find, basically they only spawn after X amount of Elite Monsters have been killed in a single map. So if you’re grinding it shouldn’t be too hard to find one. Also, if anyone else finds one near you, you’ll get a message in the chat and you can see on the world map.

            Whenever me or my friends find an Elite Boss we just call each other over because there’s literally no downside + everyone gets bonus items 😀

          March 29, 2014 at 10:37 pm

          You’re so lame lol “Self proclaimed evan guard..” stop you make me cringe. Only a handful of people share the same opinion as you, as many people would rather want the revamps. You said that the NL and BW were basically the same as the explorer classes. The DW, TB and WW were practically the same as the explorer classes, but nexon revamped them to be something different. Therefore, your point you tried to make was completely invalid.

          • Dark Evan
            March 30, 2014 at 12:35 am

            That’s the point. They are CURRENTLY irrelevant, and they won’t be til AFTER the revamp. Thus creating a viciious cylce where nexon can postpone the revamp of an irrelevant class all they like, but they can’t BECOME relevant until they are revamped, so nexon can just keep postponing it. Don’t get me wrong, Thieves and Mages are my fave classes. My first main and alt were Evan and DB respectively, and when BaMs came out, like a 3rd alt, didnt care for phantom tho, but when lumi came out he became alt #3, and kanna became alt #4, xenon became alt #5, didnt care for bt. I chose NW to be my blessing mule back in the day as well.

            Also, my Evan needs all the resistance it can GET! I don’t know if any of you can see past the 95% resistance is OPed mindset, but mathematically, the downtime makes it no different than 60% resistance on say, kaiser, except that the boons of outside bonuses is halved past 5%, and is UNABLE to have 100% resistance with the WEAKSAUCE resistance that he has when it ISN’T summoned. (well, status resist obv, as evan and archmages have built in 100% elemental that can be switched off in case the mobs are weak to it)

            Anyway, the point is that I am upset as any that they left the TWO best class branches out of the ck revamps, but noone plays them and they already have OTHER mains to pass the time for now, right? So they can wait for this EPIC storyline-based event, right? I WANT ELEMENT ring (if i choose poison, hope its poison purple and not poison green)

            That possible10% resist means nw and bw are not as important as link mules, and this’ll probably be more fun.

          The reason nobody plays them may be because of those reasons, but that’s why people want the revamp so bad; to have something to look forward to. Wind Archers, Thunder Breakers, and Dawn Warriors were also rehashes until their revamps, and people want to know what Blaze Wizards and Night Walkers will be getting. Plus, why couldn’t they do both the revamp and the Freud event at the same time?

          I just hope that what they get will be worth the wait.

    Hey Max, I’m pretty sure 레미너선스 is not Luminescence, but Reminiscence, for two reasons: 1) 레 isn’t “lu”, and 2) “reminiscence” fits the event storyline better, since it means “a story told about a past event remembered by the narrator.”

    • Dark Evan
      March 28, 2014 at 9:42 pm

      Technically, korean pronounces r and l nearly if not completely identically,
      so it could be romanized as Leminescence, or Luminescence, since it’s phonetically “close enough” Also, he talks about endeavors to help light, or luminescence, return to maple world, and his wish for this ring to be the light that shines through the darkness for its owner, the way Afrien did for him. Keeping the darkness of fear, doubt, and loneliness at bay with the light of courage, confidence, and friendship. You see, Luminescense works well too.

      • anonymous
        March 29, 2014 at 3:02 am

        Yes, but I’m quite sure Nexon wouldn’t call luminescence as 레미너선스; knowing that they call Luminous as 루미너스, they do in fact poetically differentiate the two pronunciations.

      • Dark Evan
        March 30, 2014 at 12:42 am

        Again, luminous was written differently in korean than this. and r and l are similar in korean right? so leminescence could be reminescence right?

      yes that would be awesome, evan essentially INTRODUCED Dark element to the game and is the only user (ua thieves’, night walker’s, battle mage’s, dark knight’s, and luminous’s “Dark” skills are actually non elemental)

      Not sure since it’s not available yet but I assume you can, because right now you can choose between the buffs/Eternal Flame.
