kMSt ver. 1.2.508 – So Many Skill Changes!

New City (1)

After a very disappointing patch in the real server, Nexon has released a new patch for Tespia with a huge amount of skill changes as well as many other things (seriously… a lot). It’s all in preparation for the Summer patch I believe, so read on! There’s so much, they split the patch notes into 3…

Next week will be the event where they release more information about this summer’s update, it will probably include some of these. By the way, they are definitely hinting towards 5th job! There’s also some information about what the developers are working on at the moment!

New City (1) New City (2) New City (3)

They released some developers’ notes about a new city that is being developed right now! These pictures are the background concepts.

I like the third one the best, I hope they stick with it!

Hi Maple users,

Let me first say hello. We have a team of mind-reading robots hard at work preparing for the summer update.

Saying that, the summer heat has already begun, so we know you’re waiting for the big summer update that is released at this time of year. There are probably a lot of you who are wondering what type of content we are creating. Today we are going to show what we are currently developing!

* images are under development and might be changed later *

As you can see, this map is not a straight view, it’s a quarter view world. This is a large map in Maple World where everyone can gather to play a variety of mini games and enjoy events. Various other events will also be held for Maplers. We want to give more rewards to users who can only play a couple of times a week rather than every day.

We will continue to work hard and develop this place for you. You’ll be awarded some content while you wait, due to the upcoming event which will release new information!

We are very excited to show you and we are expecting a lot of interest. We will continue releasing developers’ notes with a variety of news. We appreciate how much you love Maple and we hope for your continued support and feedback.

No matter the changing weather, whether its heat or rain, we’ll see you in Maple World!

Thank you.

Star Force

There is a new system called Star Force. Star Force is the total number of stars on all the equipment you are currently wearing. Overalls will give twice the amount of stars to make up for top/bottom combos.

In maps with fallen stars, you need a certain amount of Star Force to fight the monsters efficiently. In addition, you can use Star Force in the Maple Tutorial system to weaken monsters in maps that you teleport to.

Equipment Enchanting (1) Equipment Enchanting (2)

Daaaaaang, those later enhancements cost a lot of mesos. Items that you wish to enhance now have a limit of stars based on their required level. Superior equipment will have lower maximum stars.

  • Lv. 95 or lower: 5 stars (Superior equipment: 3)
  • Lv. 95 ~ 109: 8 stars (Superior equipment: 5)
  • Lv. 110 ~ 119: 10 stars (Superior equipment: 8)
  • Lv. 120 ~ 129: 15 stars (Superior equipment: 10)
  • Lv. 130 ~ 139: 20 stars (Superior equipment: 12)
  • Lv. 140 ~ 149: 25 stars (Superior equipment: 15)
  • Lv. 150 or higher: 25 stars (Superior equipment: 15)

Star Force Minigame

You can now play short mini games before enhancing to increase your success rate of enhancements for a short period of time. If you play multiple times consecutively, the difficulty of the mini games will increase.

Star Force Icon

failure protection system has been added to Star Force enhancements. When you have more than 10 or 15 stars on an item, an icon will appear. This icon protects the item from going below 10/15 enhancements!

Fallen Stars Pam Mr. Pierre Scadur Warrior Raul

There are new quests in East Minar Forest (level 100), the Clocktower in Ludibrium (level 115), Dead Mine (level 120), and West Minar Forest (level 130), all having to do with characters seeing fallen stars. These quests have to do with the new Star Force system.

Minar ForestFallen Star Portal

In addition to the above quests, many maps have been affected by these stars and have changed appearance. Each of these maps has a ‘recommended Star Force’. If you don’t have enough Star Force, the monsters will be shielded and you’ll do decreased damage.

The Lion King’s Castle quests have had their required levels increased from 110 to 115. Easy Van Leon’s difficulty was lowered. Its patterns have been simplified and some skills were adjusted. The drop rate of Purification Totems and Solid Dark Matter have been increased.

The coin shop in Lion King’s Castle has been reorganized. It no longer sells current level 120 Marx/Alma/Fox/Nox/Cora Van Leon equipment or the current level 125 Victor/Hex/Celine/Ska/Mer Van Leon equipment. Lion King’s Noble Medals have been deleted, now you only use Lion King’s Royal Medals, which can be acquired by using 50 Purification Totems on a Lion King’s Medal. Existing Noble Medals will be automatically changed into Royal Medals.

Horntail

Many of the quests in the lower Ludibrium clock tower have been removed. At the Cave of Life, Keroben has fled, meaning you no longer need a Transformation Elixir! Moira is now waiting at the Cave of Life entrance to help those with Honorary Marks of the Expedition Leader fight Horntail.

The Maze Room has disappeared, and now with the Mark, anyone can challenge Horntail alone. Easy Mode Horntail has been added, for those level 130 and higher. Normal Horntail’s recommended level has been raised to 130.

Magnus

Easy Magnus‘ difficulty was lowered. Compared to its entry-level, some attacks were doing too much damage so they have been modified.

Orca (1) Orca Orca (2)

Evolving System has been enhanced! The experience from monsters inside has been increased. The ‘central control system’ has been updated to allow you to access all of the Links. Some of the maps inside have been changed. Monsters have had their stats changed. Some of the quests/missions have been changed.

The limit has been changed from 5 times in one day (20 minutes each) to 3 times in one day (15 minutes each). You can now revive inside Evolving System and when you loot an Evolving Coin, all party members will receive one as well.

New Evolving System

Some new quests have also been added, involving Orca disappearing and enhancing the Evolving System.

Machine C-2‘s shop has been adjusted. He no longer sells ES Armor scrolls, or Enhancement scrolls. He now sells Mastery Book 30 and 100 Scroll Traces. Some cores have been added and deleted, and some core prices have been changed.

Mastery Book Prices

Mastery Book 20 now costs 3 million mesos and Mastery Book 30 now costs 5 million mesos.

Maple Tutorial

The Maple Tutorial system has been reorganized. It is now split into Normal/Hard, for level 10-100 and the new level 100-140 guide respectively!

Maple Tutorial Rewards Maple Tutorial Map

The window has been updated, now giving a lot more information including the main rewards from the area. If you right-click the place, you can find where the content is located on the world map.

Elite Monster's Appearance

Elite Monsters and bonus stages have been modified. Now, Elite Monsters’ skills will be proportional to monster levels in the map.

In bonus stages, Mimics’ drops will now be private to whoever hit the box. An error has been corrected where the Mimics would fly to the top of the map. You can now only get 3 rare items from a single bonus stage. 50% Innocent Scrolls are now a reward from bonus stages.

Experience

Party experience has been changed. Now, if there is a difference of 40 levels in the party, the party will not give bonus experience for the extra party members.

Blacklisting has been enhanced, now people on your blacklist cannot /find you or send you notes.

Updated Buddy List

The private connection system has been improved, now when you log in privately, you will be marked offline in the guild list and guild alliance list. In addition, others will not be able to /find you.

You can no longer use teleport items in maps you’ve been taken to through boss party matching.

Receiving SP

Acquiring 4th job SP has been changed. Now, after level 100, when you hit any levels ending in 0, 3, 6, and 9, you’ll get double the SP. After level 100, every 10 levels you get, the base SP you get per level up will be increased by 1. When you advance to 4th job, you will now only get 3 SP instead of 4.

SP Level Up

The skill level up window has been changed. Now when you want to use your skill points, a separate window will open which will allow you to add large quantities of SP into skill. This will also prevent you from accidentally using your SP.

Master levels have been changed for many skills to make only 255 SP required for 4th job (for all jobs except Evan and Zero). After level 140, you will no longer gain 4th job SP. As a result, only 255 SP will be saved when resetting SP.

Skill Changes

Hero

Hero’s hunting ability is not very good. This is because they have no way of moving fast across a map. Although we could just increase their damage or skill range, we want to stay true to the Hero’s character concept. Therefore, Self Recovery was improved and Rage Uprising’s cooldown was reduced to be more helping in hunting.

  • Combo Force Combo Force: this skill no longer pulls enemies towards you, it now moves you towards the enemy instead
  • Self Recovery Self Recovery: HP recovered has been increased from 1000 HP to 1500 HP
  • Rage Uprising Rage Uprising: cooldown has been decreased from 30 seconds to 10 seconds

Paladin

Paladins have high survivability but high damage at the same time. Our concept of the Paladin was to be able to tank a lot of damage, but they are too strong at the moment.

  • Void Elemental Void Elemental: elemental ignore has been removed
  • Advanced Charge Advanced Charge: charge skills’ attack count boost has been decreased from 2 to 1

Dark Knight

Dark Knights with 50% or higher buff duration boosts could always use Gungnir Descent without a cooldown. Our concept for it was to be a strong damaging skill which is not always available to use. In addition, Cross Over Chains gave way too much damage.

  • Beholder Beholder: cooldown has been increased from 60 seconds to 70 seconds
  • Cross Over Chain Cross Over Chains: total damage boost has been decreased from 100% to 80%
  • Sacrifice Sacrifice: duration has been decreased from 40 seconds to 30 seconds

Archmage (I/L)

Archmages’ ability to hunt and boss are both very bad. Therefore we have increased the damage of Chain Lightning, and have given them more damage passively.

  • Freezing Effect Freezing Effect: in addition to existing effects, when attacking Frozen enemies with lightning attacks, your damage will be increased by 8% per stack
  • Chain Lightning Chain Lightning: damage has been increased from 273% to 300%

Bowmaster

Bowmasters’ damage is low due to a lack of attack from their buffs and passives. In addition, we received a lot of complaints that Arrow Blaster was difficult to use compared to the 4th job Hurricane skill. Therefore we increased their attack and moved Arrow Platter and Hurricane around.

  • Extreme Archery Bow Extreme Archery: Bow: in addition to existing effects, this skill now gives 30% damage
  • Illusion Step Illusion Step: DEX boost has been increased from 40 to 60
  • Hurricane Hurricane: moved from 3rd job to 4th job, damage has been adjusted to 280%
  • Arrow Platter Arrow Blaster: moved from 4th job to 3rd job, damage has been adjusted to 181%
  • Arrow Platter - Reinforce Arrow Blaster – Reinforce: changed to Hurricane - Reinforce Hurricane – Reinforce: Hurricane’s damage is increased by 20%. [req. level: 155]
  • Arrow Platter - Boss Killer Arrow Blaster – Boss Killer: changed to Hurricane - Boss Killer Hurricane – Boss Killer: Hurricane’s boss damage is increased by 20%. [req. level: 177]
  • Arrow Platter - Extra Target Arrow Platter – Extra Target: changed to Hurricane - Split Damage Hurricane – Split Attack: Hurricane’s damage is halved but its number of hits is increased by 1. [req. level: 195]

Shadower

Shadowers need to collect 5 Killing Points in order to strengthen their skills, but otherwise their damage is low. To solve this, Killing Points now have a maximum of 3 and some skills’ delays have been adjusted. In addition, Assassinate’s high percent damage hits the cap a lot so we increased its limit. Also, Asassinate’s effect was changed due to comments given to us.

  • Muspelheim Muspelheim: skill delay has been decreased from 1200ms to 1020ms

Shadow Partner Effect (1) Shadow Partner Effect (2) Shadow Partner Effect (3)

  • Shadow Partner Shadow Partner: skill casting effect has been changed

Assassinate Effect (1) Assassinate Effect (2)

  • Assassinate Assassinate: skill casting animation has been changed
  • Shadower Instinct Shadower Instinct: maximum Killing Points has been decreased from 5 to 3, extra attack per KP has been increased from 6 to 10
  • Assassinate - Limit Canceller Assassinate – Limit Canceller: maximum damage cap has been increased from 60,000,000 to 70,000,000

Captain

Captain’s Fusillade’s delay is too long and lacks the ability to hunt high defense enemies. In addition, Rapid Fire’s damage and Captain’s bossing ability are low. We adjusted the delay of Fusillade and increased their maximum HP. We wanted to increase the damage of Rapid Fire but there was a fear of Phantom becoming too strong so we increased Captain Dignity’s damage instead.

  • Fusillade Fusillade: skill delay has been decreased from 1410 to 1110
  • Crew Commandership Crew Commandership: in addition to existing effects, this skill now gives 5000 HP passively
  • Captain Dignity Captain Dignity: damage has been increased from 100% to 200%
  • Rapid Fire - Add Range Rapid Fire – Add Range: range boost has been increased from 50 to 100

Evan

Evan has enough damage compared to other magician characters, but they lack the ability to move quickly with Teleport, making their hunting less efficient. Therefore we increased the distance of Teleport.

  • Teleport Teleport: distance moved has been increased from 150 to 255

Mercedes

Mercedes is not very efficient at hunting, and we wanted to return to her stylish elf archer concept with skills like Ring of Ishtar and Legendary Spear. Therefore, to create more stylish play patterns, we gave them the ability to link together skills and gave more damage when linking them. In addition, we increased Leap Tornado’s damage. People complained that each of the debuffs durations were too short so we lengthened them, but Legendary Spear without a cooldown was too strong so we added one back.

  • Strike Dualshot Strike Dualshot: can now be linked with Charge Drive, Unicorn Spike, Legendary Spear, and Lightning Edge
  • Leap Tornado Leap Tornado: damage has been increased from 195% to 215%, can now be linked with Gust Dive and Legendary Spear
  • Unicorn Spike Unicorn Spike: debuff duration has been increased from 15 seconds to 30 seconds, can now be linked with Charge Drive, Strike Dualshot, Legendary Spear, and Lightning Edge
  • Gust Dive Gust Dive: can now be linked with Charge Drive, Strike Dualshot, Leap Tornado, Unicorn Spike, Legendary Spear, and Lightning Edge
  • Highkick Demolition Highkick Demolition: can now be linked with Leap Tornado, Gust Dive, Legendary Spear, and Rolling Moonsault
  • Ignis Lore Ignis Roar: attack boost has been removed, this skill now gives you 6 attack every time you link a skill (stacks up to 10 times) for 10 seconds
  • Legendary Spear Legendary Spear: debuff duration has been increased from 15 seconds to 30 seconds, cooldown of 5 seconds has been added, can now be linked with Leap Tornado and Gust Dive
  • Lightning Edge Lightning Edge: debuff duration has been increased from 15 seconds to 30 seconds, can now be linked with Charge Drive, Strike Dualshot, Unicorn Spike, and Legendary Spear
  • Rolling Moonsault Rolling Moonsault: can now be linked with Leap Tornado, Gust Dive, and Legendary Spear

EunWol

EunWol’s movement speed is low and linking skills together is clunky. Therefore we have added some speed and changed the skills to automatically do all of their hits with one skill press. However, this might be inconvenient at times so you can now move or jump to cancel the skill while its being used.

  • Spirit Bond 2 Spirit Bond 2: in addition to existing effects, now gives 20 speed
  • Mega Punch Mega Punch: now automatically hits twice with one key press
  • Island Strike Island Strike: now automatically hits twice with one key press
  • Ground Strike Ground Strike: now automatically hits twice with one key press
  • Shockwave Punch Shockwave Punch: now automatically hits three times with one key press
  • Bomb Punch Bomb Punch: now automatically hits four times with one key press

Flame Wizard

Flame Wizard’s Orbital Flame’s damage added up very fast and was too powerful. In addition, Blazing Extinction’s attack range was high enough that you could use the skill to hunt by itself. Therefore we have decreased Orbital Flame’s number of hits and movement speed, as well as decreasing Blazing Extinction’s range.

  • Orbital Flame Orbital Flame: number of hits has been decreased from 2 to 1, speed has been decreased
  • Orbital Flame II Orbital Flame II: number of hits has been decreased from 2 to 1, speed has been decreased
  • Orbital Flame III Orbital Flame III: number of hits has been decreased from 3 to 2, speed has been decreased
  • Orbital Flame IV Orbital Flame IV: number of hits has been decreased from 3 to 2, speed has been decreased
  • Blazing Extinction Blazing Extinction: attack range has been decreased

Wind Breaker

Wind Breakers were too powerful. Therefore we reduced some of their damage.

  • Fairy Turn Fairy Turn: damage has been decreased from 195% to 175%
  • Gust Shot Gust Shot: damage has been decreased from 285% to 260%
  • Sky's Song Sky’s Song: damage has been decreased from 370% to 345%
  • Trifling Whim III Trifling Whim III: damage has been decreased from 280% to 260%

Night Walker

Our concept for Night Walker was to have strong bossing capabilities while giving up the ability to hunt well, but it was too good at both. Therefore, we lowered the number of bounces of Shadow Bats and also decreased Quintuple Throw’s boss damage. We also received complaints about Siphon Vitality’s duration so we increased it.

  • Bat Communion Bat Communion: number of bounces has been decreased from 2 to 1
  • Bat Communion III Bat Communion III: number of bounces has been decreased from 2 to 1
  • Siphon Vitality Siphon Vitality: duration has been increased from 5 seconds to 10 seconds
  • Quintuple Throw - Boss Killer Quintuple Throw – Boss Killer: boss damage has been decreased from 20% to 10%

Demon Slayer

In a previous balance patch, we added a slow effect to Demon Impact but it didn’t apply to Evil Torture and it wasn’t useful so we corrected that.

  • Evil Torture Evil Torture: Demon Impact’s slow effect now activates this skill

Battlemage

Battle Mage’s skill damage were low and their buff skills had long delays. Therefore we added a new skill which gives them invincibility if revived and increased their skill damage. Also, we changed some skills’ buff durations to unify them.

  • Spirit of Freedom NEW! Spirit of Freedom: The Resistance’s strength and desire for freedom gives 5 seconds of invincibility if revived. (Beginner skill)
  • Quad Blow Quad Blow: damage has been increased from 155% to 165%
  • Hyper Dark Chain Hyper Dark Chain: skill delay has been decreased from 1050ms to 880ms
  • Blood Drain Blood Drain: duration has been increased from 120 seconds to 200 seconds
  • Death Blow Death Blow: damage has been increased from 165% to 180%
  • Dark Lightning Dark Lightning: skill delay has been decreased from 1320ms to 720ms
  • Super Body  Super Body: buff duration has been increased from 150 seconds to 200 seconds
  • Finish Blow Finish Blow: damage has been increased from 240% to 280%
  • Cyclone Cyclone: damage has been increased from 360% to 480%, cooldown has been decreased from 12 seconds to 5 seconds
  • Dark Genesis Dark Genesis: skill delay has been decreased from 3240ms to 900ms
  • Big Crunch Aura Big Crunch Aura: buff duration has been increased from 150 seconds to 200 seconds

Wild Hunter

Wild Hunter’s mount acts as a penalty due to its buffs and long skill delays. Therefore, we added a new skill which gives them invincibility if revived and enhanced its buffs. We also unified buff durations and we added some passive HP to Beast Form. Finally, Rampage as One’s cooldown was reduced to be more useful while hunting.

  • Spirit of Freedom NEW! Spirit of Freedom: The Resistance’s strength and desire for freedom gives 5 seconds of invincibility if revived. (Beginner skill)
  • Soul Arrow Soul Arrow: Crossbow: attack boost has been increased from 30 to 40
  • Howling Howling: duration has been increased from 240 seconds to 300 seconds
  • Cross Road Cross Road: skill delay has been decreased from 1320ms to 930ms
  • Beast Form Beast Form: duration has been increased from 150 seconds to 300 seconds, attack boost has been increased from 30% to 40%, HP boost has been decreased from 80% to 15%, in addition to existing effects this skill now gives 80% HP passively
  • Wild Vulcan Wild Vulcan: skill delay has been decreased, range has been increased
  • Assistant Hunting Unit Assistant Hunting Unit: skill delay has been decreased
  • Extend Magazine Extend Magazine: duration has been increased from 130 seconds to 300 seconds, damage has been increased from 10% to 20%, all stats boost has been increased from 20 to 40
  • Rampage as One Rampage As One: cooldown has been decreased from 60 seconds to 15 seconds

Mechanic

Mechanic’s mount acts as a penalty due to its set up time, including its transformations for various skills. Therefore, we added a skill which gives them invincibility if revived, adjusted the delay of many skills, and increased the damage of Heavy Machine-gun so that its worth taking the penalty it has.

  • Spirit of Freedom NEW! Spirit of Freedom: The Resistance’s strength and desire for freedom gives 5 seconds of invincibility if revived. (Beginner skill)
  • Metal Armor Prototype Metal Armor: Prototype: skill delay has been decreased
  • Atomic Hammer Atomic Hammer: skill delay has been decreased
  • Rocket Booster Rocket Booster: skill delay has been decreased
  • Open Gate GX-9 Open Gate: GX-9: skill delay has been decreased
  • Mechanic Booster Mechanic Booster: skill delay has been decreased from 1400ms to 840ms
  • Magnetic Field Magnetic Field: skill delay has been decreased from 1260ms to 630ms
  • Metal Armor Heavy Machinegun Metal Armor: Heavy Machine-gun: skill delay has been decreased from 540ms to 270ms, damage has been increased from 240% to 300%
  • Accelerator EX-7 Accelerator: EX-7: skill delay has been decreased from 1260ms to 630ms
  • Healing Robot H-LX Healing Robot: H-LX: skill delay has been decreased from 1260ms to 630ms
  • Metal Armor Missile Tank Metal Armor: Missile Tank: Heavy Machine-gun’s damage has been increased from 30% to 40%, MP consumption has been decreased from 25 to 10, skill delay has been decreased from 840ms to 420ms
  • Robo Factory RM1 Robo Factory: RM1: skill delay has been decreased from 1260ms to 630ms
  • Amplifier AF-11 Amplifier: AF-11: skill delay has been decreased from 1260ms to 630ms
  • Laser Blast Laser Blast: skill delay has been decreased from 1110ms to 900ms

Xenon

Xenon’s 3rd job hunting ability is low so we increased some skills’ damage.

  • Combat Switching Explode Combat Switching: Explosion: damage has been increased from 200% to 220%
  • Combat Switching Shoot DOwn Combat Switching: Shoot Down: damage has been increased from 250% to 270%
  • Combat Switching Divide Combat Switching: Split: damage has been increased from 251% to 271%

Mikhail

There was no reason for Soul Rage to have a cooldown since it switches between being able to attack multiple mobs and 1 monster.

  • Soul Rage Soul Rage: now an On/Off skill

Kaiser

We thought it was awkward that after you use Final Figuration, you can only use a certain number of skills. Therefore you can now use all active attack skills in Final Figuration. We also increased the damage of some skills to increase hunting efficiency in 2nd and 3rd job.

  • Flame Shot Flame Shot: can now be used in Final Figuration
  • Impact Wave Impact Wave: damage has been increased from 250% to 270%, can now be used in Final Figuration
  • Chain Pulling Chain Pulling: damage has been increased from 250% to 280%, can now be used in Final Figuration
  • Petrified Petrified: can now be used in Final Figuration
  • Wingbeat Wingbeat: can now be used in Final Figuration
  • Sword Strike Sword Strike: can now be used in Final Figuration
  • Infernal Breath Infernal Breath: can now be used in Final Figuration

Angelic Burster

Angelic Burster has very high damage skills but their damage cap was low so we added an increased cap. We also created a new skill to increase the number of hits that Angelic Burster can do.

  • Affinity IV Affinity IV: in addition to existing effects, this skill now increases your maximum damage cap by 20,000,000
  • Soul Seeker Expert NEW! Soul Seeker Expert: When using active skills (except for Soul Seeker), your attacks will have a chance to automatically trigger Soul Seeker. (required skill: level 20 Soul Seeker) (max level: 10)
    • Level 10: 25% chance to summon a Soul Seeker which does 70% of Soul Seeker’s damage

          No adjustments for Buccs? I’m not sure if that means that the Dev Team thinks they’re just fine or that they can’t be bothered to do anything for us.

          They could have at least lowered the delay of Bucc Blast, or given Dragon Strike a secondary effect so that it’s not completely overshadowed by it, but I guess that’s fine. At least we’re not NLs…

      you considered only getting a buff a good thing what about that still annoying need to activate BB before using big crunch aura? how about the annoying ass having to press a button for finishing blow then a separate button for battle kings bar which increases its delay btw making BaM’s slower? how about that new skill that IF revived it activates how in the HELL is that useful? can resistance members revive themselves? why make a skill that is 100% reliant on another class? there are so many why not do this or you should just do this or why did you do this? BaM’s with battle kings bar can be very efficient simply by making it a toggle skill that when on automatically attacks after Finishing blow. Dont make BaM’s have to buff up so much. Make cyclone like angelic busters which can drag in boss mobs,and make it so that big crunch aura doesnt need BB to be activated before it can be used and BaM’s would flow so much easier

      • Max
        July 11, 2014 at 12:11 pm

        Invincibility skill is for places where you can revive yourself like in bosses, so you can summon your Jaguar/Mech/cast your Auras without being hit by anything.

          Thank you Max for clearing that up but it is still seemingly useless in regards to efficiency where as most classes can get out their large skills easily BaM’s main boss skill has to be triggered directly after finishing blows use and the timing gets very messed up during a boss battle making it tedious and annoying

Why not just raise the cap as the new job advance comes out? This is as annoying as people saving seats for someone who may not even show.

    • Anonymous
      July 11, 2014 at 1:27 am

      The “link system” seems good for mobbing but, ignis road now gives attack bost based on how you link skills and thats pretty unnecessary while fighting static bosses like zakum and HT, not really sure if I like that change on ignis road, sames goes for legendary spear, the cd could be a problem if you are trying to link it multiple times.

      • Anonymous
        July 11, 2014 at 4:32 am

        On paper it seems that Ignis got a terrible nerf considering spamming Leaf Tornado for mobbing is still best, and the 3 debuffs only need to be applied every 30 sec, even tho Ignis has to be retriggered every 10 sec. However, if each stack resets the entire stack duration, then using Spikes Royale every cooldown would seem ok. Or they can just change the stack duration to 30 seconds, double the damage bonus per stack and half the max number of stacks

    • Me Likey Likey
      July 12, 2014 at 1:22 am

      I wouldn’t say they are the most hated. Wild Hunters and Mechanics aren’t exactly the classes people flock to. I wouldn’t even say Buccs are the most hated by Nexon either. Marksman would probably take the cake when it comes to that. That class gets shafted the most out of any other class due to getting nerfed and glitched regularly and almost never receiving a buff or boost in damage. The only advantage to the class is that if you had a couple thousand dollars to spend in the game they could potentially be a great class since they have a large cap (Pay2WinClass). The biggest shafting of all time goes to Bishops after Big Bang though. The Dawn Warrior nerfing was pretty big too but at least they were actually completely OP before.

    Captain buff is still sucks bad… because even now headshot is still better to use for bossing than rapid fire… and rapid fire is an ping depend skill.. by improving Captain Dignity damage from 100 to 200% is still not worth using rapid fire over headshot and headshot got no buff at all these 100% extra on this final attack skill is still meaning less for headshot. therefor they didn’t even improve captain abilities … that really sucks because I think captain is the weakest and noobest class out there now days

    • Young
      July 13, 2014 at 12:33 pm

      For me, I feel that the main problem of captain is the loss of attack when we die to a boss skill like arka’s screen crack, since our attack buffs come from our crew and roll of the dice, and they have a long countdown so we can’t buff up for damage until after like a few mins… The crew and dice roll should be modified so that they stay with us even when we die, so that we don’t lose our buffs which have ridiculously long cd time

  31. noi
    July 11, 2014 at 3:26 am

    Captain changes are useless. O.o … even now we don’t use rapid fire at all… we only use headshot even after these changes headshot is still better and the changes to Captain Dignity are meaningless on headshot skill .. so basically we got no improvement and rapid fire is ping depend skill so basically if they wanted to make Captain jump over from using headshot to use rapid fire instead the Captain Dignity should’ve been at least 400% rather than 200% other wise headshot is still better skill to use.. more range and more dps ignore defense 400% and 100% critical chance.. why would they make so meaning less changes?

      are you mad at that? its because the class it self is very weak. but the changes that could be made to make it better are not being made they are trying to make the classes more balanced but with BaM’s efficiency could make it more balanced rather than skill delays and buff durations increasing.

A class that has tons of HP, MP, can heal itself, has an ultimate, hits fast, has huge defenses, several hits, huge damage, summons, invincibility frames, and party buffs for speed, attack, avoid, defense, etc.. it was an everything class.. so to compensate they nerfed them hard and put huge cool downs on everything.. but just like every other class, if it is “balanced” it is destined to be weak because Nexon makes a new OP class every month.

          at one point it was op in comparison to how all other classes were but they re-balanced to weakened it and then made every other class stronger than it and still never brought it back to a proper balance

    Uhh, about heavy machine gun for mechs, is that a delay decrease in the time to enter it, or decrease inbetween shots?

      July 11, 2014 at 11:30 am

      I believe its changing into the form, not the attack delay.

      • knite0
        July 12, 2014 at 1:12 pm

        There’s one reason why I don’t think it’s that; entering heavy machine gun mode is definitely longer than 540ms at the moment.

    Ice Lightnings need to hit more monsters on Chain Lightning, Thunderstorm needs to attack faster and have more damage along with Elquines, we need WAY less delay while beginning to use Ice Orb, and Ice Orb needs more hits per second.

      well they would also have to make changes to their counter parts bishops and F/P Archmages. because what you are asking is going to cause another gap between them and in your case bend it in I/L’s favor but they could simply buff all at this point if they are looking for efficiency. but unfortunately we have no say =(

    Maybe 5th job won’t start till 170/180, they could do 4th till 140 then use hypers as a filler till 170/180 then give you 5th. Though that would probably be boring as you can only put a point in hypers every so often and they would be better off with keeping it the way it is currently.

    Nothing for Soul Masters?
    ok. ;-;

  56. these changes
    July 12, 2014 at 1:49 pm

    Explorer warriors: this was a Nerf but not a massive one, and anyway, they’re warriors. they can take it.

    i/l mage: this seems too small to be important, but whatever.

    bowmaster: this is mostly going to be hitting phantoms, not bowmasters, but it’s not a fun change for either.

    thief: weeeeeee things look pretty now!

    captain: i’m glad that they’re trying but between the boat thing and headshot no one’s going to actually USE rapidfire, even after this update. other changes look nice though, and headshot’s probably going to be moved to fifth job anyway.

    Evan: wait, wait, wait, you went to the trouble of changing the evan’s teleport skill, but you DIDN’T let us use it in the air like explorers? WTF NEXON!?!

    Mercedes: i’m glad that the mercedes got link skills, but returning the cooldown to that skill ruins the class for me.

    Eunwol: thank you. thank you. thank you. thank you. thank you.

    Blaze wizard: ha-ha i still liked this class better before the revamp that gave them level 250 :3

    wind archer: the only thing about this class that i thought was op was sentient arrow. especially after soloing nett’s pyramid twice. they didn’t even change that skill and i still use it as my main skill at 4th job T.T oh well.

    night walker: “too good at mobbing” WHAT THE F**K?!?!?!?!?!? i have like, 3 skills that even hit more than one thing not including hypers! oh my cod!

    battle mage: i’m glad that the BaM is getting updated, but it seems to me like the updates here are only really a half finished thing. and spirit of freedom should also work like the EunWol skill in that it revives you itself, it’s a little stupid otherwise.

    Wild hunter: speaking as someone attempting to main a wild hunter; i have to say: OMAHGAWDYUS! but spirit of freedom should also work like the EunWol skill in that it revives you itself, it’s a little stupid otherwise. and when i heard wild hunter revamp i was still hoping for more. this is one of the few classes that gets, including hyper skills, nothing that hits the whole screen, even though they feel like a character who should more than almost anyone else. they used to have one, and i don’t like what they replaced it with. and i think that wild Vulcan still does far too low damage.

    mechanic: so many skill delay decreases! i’m so glad. those were why i stopped playing the mechanic. but spirit of freedom should also work like the EunWol skill in that it revives you itself, it’s a little stupid otherwise.

    xenon: can’t you like, replace one of those modes with something for mobbing instead of increasing damage? you’re not really even fixing what you said you were.

    mikhail: oh my god! this is huge! let’s call this update “mikhail reborn!”

    kaiser: it really was pretty stupid that only some skills worked in ultimate form, now we just have to hope that they start allowing arrowkey attack commands in ultimate. also: wingbeat could already be used in ultimate form you dingbats!

    angelic buster: it won’t work nexon. we still won’t play that class. sorry.

    NOTABLY MISSING:
    people have been complaining about these guys being missing:

    Night lord: we do really have to face the reality that this class always has been and always will be, almost the same as night walker. witch one is better will change from time to time, but nexon seems to have no intent of separating them.

    Buccaneer: can you guys shush? the bucc is pretty powerful already and anyway, more ways to punch things? not nearly as interesting as the other stuff the bucc has now.

    Aran: Nexon ditched this class after big bang. they may have added hypers, but that is it. and that’s okay. why? there really isn’t anything to add here. what would you even change besides increasing damage sometimes? the aran was released finished, compared to the eunwol and the demon avenger where much laziness occurred. (avenger re-uses someone else’s storyline and Eunwol has almost no active buffs to avoid making skill effects, [plus, first job: who ever heard of a skill with a master level of 25? O_O])

    I agree completely with “these changes” especially about captain changes.
    I mean at first I was like yay im so happy that they realize captain is sucks in everything now and even tho that he meant to be a bossing and pure dps class he fail even at dps.. but then again these changes are completely useless even with adding 50 range to rapid fire and 100% to final attack thing.. no one is going to use rapid fire at all. so these changes are meaning less. headshot is still better in any anything .. at this rate im just going to quit my captain and make another class for example warrior which are always strong no matter what.

    For Eunwol, will we still be able to fully control his punches(switching directions mid combo) or did they remove the control all together? It would be great if holding down the skill key did the punches automatically but losing full control for simplified gameplay would be a shame.

    I am not going to play MS again as long as bishops stay ridiculously weak. Now even if they had their Genesis back without the cooldown they’d still be weak. The supportive-type excuse is lame. In many other online games priests can be considered as strong. There is almost nothing left for bishops that make them unique.
