kMSt ver. 1.2.001 – Suu and Level 160 Items & MapleStory 2 – CBT and New Cinematic!

November 20, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

A lot of information all at the same time today!! First of all, the first patch for the new Test World has been released, featuring a new boss Suu and a new level 160 set!

In addition, for G-STAR 2014, Nexon has released two videos: one cinematic and one that shows off what they’ll be adding in the upcoming CBT as well as the date for the beta test. Read on!

Test World Open

Test World is the new test server for MapleStory, with a new set of rules. You can see my previous post about it.

Drop rate has been changed to 2x for items and 5x for mesos. Experience rate depends on your level: 2x for level 1~29, 3x for 30~119, and 2x for 120~159. These rates will apply in channel 1 and 2, but 3 and 4 will be the same as the official server.

The goal this time is to test the new level 210 boss, Suu. You can enter through the Boss Matching system with a party of 1 to 6 people, level 140 or higher.

In the official server, the requirements will be to finish all Acts of Black Heaven, and be level 190 or higher. There will also be a daily or weekly limit imposed.

If you clear Suu in an unusual way, you will not receive any rewards.

  • Suu has 300% defense and resists all elements
  • the map has diagonal teleports (e.g. take the portal in the top left to reach the bottom right)
  • you must attack the central laser core
  • 5 second potion cooldown

Suu has many attacks. He can shoot lasers at you. He can drop objects from the sky (lightbulbs stun you for 1 second and deal 10% HP damage, iron plates stun you for 2 seconds and deals 20% damage, and rocks stun you for 3 seconds and hits 30% damage). When you get hit by something you fall to the bottom of the map. He can also summon robots.

Absolabs Hat Absolabs Suit Absolabs Shoes Absolabs Gloves Absolabs Cape

This patch also added a new level 160 set, the Absolabs set. I guess Suu drops them. It has the Absolabs Core Hat, Suit, Shoes, Gloves and Cape as well as a weapon.

Here are the equipment stats. Note that there is one set for each job (they all look the same for now though, it might change in the future)

  • Hat: 45 main and secondary stat, 3 attack/magic attack, 10% defense ignore, 11 slots, untradeable upon equipping, can be traded with the Karma Scissors
  • Suit: 65 main and secondary stat, 5 attack/magic attack, 12 slots, untradeable upon equipping, can be traded with the Karma Scissors
  • Shoes: 20 main and secondary stat, 5 attack/magic attack, 7 slots, untradeable upon equipping, can be traded with the Karma Scissors
  • Gloves: 20 main and secondary stat, 5 attack/magic attack, 7 slots, untradeable upon equipping, can be traded with the Karma Scissors
  • Cape: 15 all stats, 2 attack/magic attack, 7 slots, untradeable upon equipping, can be traded with the Karma Scissors

Here are the weapons‘ stats. They each come with 30% boss damage and 10% defense ignore (except the Blade) and have 8 slots. They are untradeable upon equipping and can be traded with the Karma Scissors.

  • One-handed BW: 60 STR and DEX, 197 attack
  • One-handed Axe: 60 STR and DEX, 197 attack

  • Desperado: 2000 HP, 205 attack
  • Wand: 60 INT and LUK, 241 magic attack
  • Staff: 60 INT and LUK, 245 magic attack

  • Soul Shooter: 60 DEX and STR, 154 attack
  • Energy Sword: 60 STR and DEX, 154 attack

The set effects are:

  • 2 equips: 30 all stats
  • 3 equips: 30 attack/magic attack, 10% defense ignore
  • 4 equips: 20% HP and MP, 200 defense and magic defense
  • 5 equips: 40 attack and magic attack, 30% boss damage
  • 6 equips: 50 attack and magic attack, 10% defense ignore

Let’s move on to MapleStory 2! At G-STAR this year (a gaming convention), they showed off some more! Here’s a new cinematic!

It confirms the beta test will begin in January 2015!!

They also released a video showing off what they’ll be adding in for the upcoming CBT, including 32 new maps for Ellinia and Perion, new bosses, NPCs, and quests, as well as a shadow world where you can participate in PvP anywhere!

In addition, this CBT will finally let you test the three classes which were not available in the alpha test, Berserker, Thief, and Heavy Gunner!

And one more video, this one’s just a short preview of MapleStory 2!

      It’s going to expensive as hell. You’re better off buying CRA now and buy it some time after.

      Not to mention this set is def worse than CRA + Tyrants. The only upgrade that MIGHT be worth is weapon, but even then it’s like, 30 att in exchange for 30% boss or w/e 4 set of CRA is

    When do you estimate the MS2 beta will reach America?

    • melusine
      November 21, 2014 at 1:20 am

      Probably not at least for a couple years, if I remember correctly, Maplestory 1 took a couple years to be released globally, and considering there is more content (maybe) to start off with in Maplestory 2, it will take a while to localize, on top of Nexon America having to obtain servers and develop infrastructure for MS2.

      So, my guess is probably late 2017 or early/mid 2018.

        SEA came out before GMS. However, I doubt the same will occur this time around. Even though the North American market seems weak I think Nexon knows that 3D games thrive in North America. I would shave at least 1 year off of your estimate.

          I dunno. It depends on how long the beta is. I think we might get it within half a year of kms launch. We don’t need a beta, just translation.
          They prob don’t want to wait that long again. Competition is strong, they just need more servers which is easy enough. Infrastructure is there.

            that sounds about right

            Huh I thought I read somewhere that as soon as the beta is over it will come over to GMS, I think I read it on siliconera

          • Likey Likey
            November 26, 2014 at 4:30 am

            Think about what you just said. “They need to translate it.” It takes 3 to 6 months just to get new content currently. Do you really believe they can transfer over an entire game within that same amount of time? Plus, unlike with content updates, with MapleStory 2 they’ll have to assign new roles or even hire new people as well and purchase and setup new infrastructure. Nexon isn’t capable of doing all of that so quickly. It’s not like you can just hire way ahead of time and have people sitting around on payroll either.

            All things they can do in advance. Do you really think in this day and age with all the other mmo’s and browser games etc that they will wait that long?

    I’m pretty sure Nexon said that MS2 will be a global release.

    • November 25, 2014 at 8:08 pm

      Nope. Several articles, however, state that. No one knows if its true or not.
