kMSt ver. 1.2.003 – Mechanical Grave & Skill Changes!

Mechanical Grave

A new Tespia patch has been released! This time, we’re getting the promised level 200+ area! It’s the Mechanical Grave in Edelstein, based off of Black Heaven. There were also some other neat changes, so read on!

Don’t forget, MapleStory 2’s CBT starts in less than two weeks, I’m excited~

Star Force

Some Star Force maps have been changed. In El Nath, you can now use the Danger Zone Taxi to go straight to the Dead Mine, and both the Dead Mine and the Cave of Trials maps have had their monster regeneration rate increased greatly.

In Ludibrium, Twisted Passage and Forgotten Passage have had their terrain changed and their monster regeneration rate increased greatly.

In Minar Forest, you can now use the Danger Zone Taxi to go straight to Dragon’s Nest, and the monster regeneration rate has been increased greatly.

Black Heaven and Moko

Now, after completing Black Heaven, you can play through it again by talking to Moko, who will allow you to reset your progress. When replaying Black Heaven, you will receive the same experience but less Honor.

Classic Yutnori Psychic Yutnori

A new minigame called Psychic Yutnori has been added in Star Planet. The existing Star Yutnori has been renamed to Classic Yutnori. Both of these are available in the Star Arena Street. In Psychic Yutnori, at the beginning of the game you are granted two psychic abilities from sixteen.

Fight! Return of the Legends

In Fight! Return of the Legends, you will now be matched with users with similar scores as you. All Avatars’ experience required per level has been adjusted and the Health Regeneration Core skill has been buffed. In addition, some Avatars have had their skills changed slightly.

  • Mike: Shield of War’s cooldown has been decreased, Mace Armor’s damage has been increased
  • Manji: Sky Cut’s damage has been decreased
  • Grendel: Ice Orb’s damage has been decreased
  • Mu Gong: Whirlwind Leg has been changed to allow you to jump
  • Dark Lord: Bat Grave’s slow effect duration has been decreased

Previous Button

The login process has been improved! A new ‘previous’ button allows you to return to a previous screen without having to log in again. Also, when creating a character, you will now immediately log in to that character instead of being returned to the character select screen. Finally, when logging off, you will be returned to the character selection screen instead of being forced to log in again.

Many jobs have had their skills changed.


Divine Charge’s damage was low compared to lower jobs’ Charge skills and we thought this did not make sense. Therefore, its damage has been increased.

  • Divine Charge Divine Charge: damage has been increased from 405% to 454%


Since Marksman have high critical chance, the efficiency of Sniping was not as much as it could be due to the damage cap, so we increased it for this skill. The critical chance effect of Distancing Sense was not very useful so it has been changed to defense ignore. In addition, some other skills were changed.

  • Distancing Sense Distancing Sense: critical chance effect has been changed to defense ignore
  • Net Throwing Net Throwing: slow chance has been increased from 70% to 100%, cooldown of 5 seconds has been added
  • Dragon Pulse Dragon Pulse: number of monsters hit has been increased from 6 to 9
  • Extreme Archery Crossbow Extreme Archery: Crossbow: in addition to existing effects, now adds 15% minimum critical damage
  • Sniping Sniping: damage cap has been increased from 300,000,000 to 400,000,000, range has been increased, skill delay has been decreased
  • Additional Bolt Additional Bolt: Distancing Bolt’s critical chance boost has been changed to a defense ignore boost
  • Sniping - Limit Canceller Sniping – Limit Canceller: damage cap boost has been increased from 400,000,000 to 500,000,000
  • Long Range Trueshot Long Range Trueshot: damage cap has been increased to 500,000,000, cooldown has been decreased from 30 seconds to 15 seconds
  • Bullseye Bullseye: in addition to existing effects, Bullseye now gives 20% damage


Vipers are not very viable at bosses due to their need to stay close to them. Therefore, Double Spiral can now be used during other skills to avoid attacks and reposition yourself.

  • HP Increase HP Increase: in addition to existing effects, HP Increase now gives 100% Stance
  • Double Spiral Double Spiral: can now be used during other skills, when used together with either the left or right arrows you will be rushed in that direction
  • Ultra Charge Ultra Charge: due to HP Increase’s change, this skill’s Stance effect has been removed


Fusillade’s attack range did not match the animation.

  • Fusillade Fusillade: vertical range has been increased


Mercedes has been given a fun hunting pattern in previous skill balancing but the skill damage has been deemed inefficient. Therefore, we added a few more damage boosts, and we also increased the range of Leap Tornado.

  • Potential Power Potential Power: in addition to existing effects, Potential Power now gives 20% damage
  • Spirit Infusion Spirit Infusion: damage boost has been increased from 15% to 30%
  • Leap Tornado Leap Tornado: attack range has been increased
  • Ignis Lore Ignis Roar: attack per linked attack has been increased from 3 to 4
  • Ancient Spirit Ancient Spirit: damage boost has been increased from 30% to 40%


Xenon mainly uses Snipe at bosses but as a major skill it was a bit low on damage. Therefore, we increased the number of attacks and reduced the skill delay. Also in earlier levels, to make Blade Dancing more useful, the damage was increased. Finally, after reviving, your Energy Gauge will no longer reset.

  • Blade Dancing Blade Dancing: damage has been increased from 225% to 260%
  • Purge Lob Masquerade Snipe Purge Lob Masquerade: Snipe: number of hits has been increased from 5 to 6, damage has been decreased from 450% to 400%, skill delay has been decreased


Just as a small change, some skills’ motions have been changed after you use Final Figuration in order to look nicer, and you can now sit or climb ladders and ropes in that form.

  • Dragon Slash 3rd Enhancement Dragon Slash: when using Final Figuration, this skill’s motions will change
  • Wingbeat Wing Beat: when using Final Figuration, this skill’s motions will change
  • Gigaslasher Giga Slash: when using Final Figuration, this skill’s motions will change

For many classes which have passive skills that are automatically activated while attacking, it might lead to some frustration at some places. Therefore, the following jobs have had some skills changed into On/Off skills.

  • Shadow Bat Night Walker: Shadow Bats
  • Aegis System Xenon: Aegis System
  • Soul Seeker Expert Angelic Burster: Soul Seeker Expert
  • Fox Spirit Fire Fox Spirit EunWol: Fox Spirit (4th job’s Fire Fox Spirit has been changed into a passive skill)

Using a Soul Skill

In order to prevent users who use their Soul Weapon skills in order to hunt automatically (botting), we have made some changes including Soul Weapon skills will no longer fill the Soul Weapon gauge and if you use a Soul skill multiple times in one place, it will no longer be able to be used.

Edelstein World Map Mechanical Grave World Map

A new area for level 200~230 called the Mechanical Grave has been added! Haven is a new town where Androids live and is also where Black Heaven crashed. It is located above Edelstein and can be accessed through a new cable car in Edelstein Trails 4. You can also use a taxi in Edelstein to come directly to here.


It consists of 5 areas: Haven, Mechanical Grave, Skyline, Black Heaven Deck, and Black Heaven Interior. You can see the monster stats here.

Here’s a video of the area, man those things hit hard. I couldn’t even hit the later mobs, they were too high level and I just missed all my attacks haha.

Normal Suu

The new boss Suu has received a Normal mode, which has the same limitations as the original but is easier for players to defeat.

Absolabs Set

The Absolabs set has received a new design (thanks to Spadow for the image!), and also a new part: the shoulderpad which gives 14 all stats, 10 attack and magic attack with 1 slot.

The item stats have not been changed but the set effects did.

  • 2 items: 1500 HP and MP, 20 attack and magic attack
  • 3 items: 30 all stats, 25 attack and magic attack
  • 4 items: 30 attack and magic attack, 200 defense and magic defense, 10% defense ignore
  • 5 items: 20 attack and magic attack, 30% boss damage
  • 6 items: 20% HP and MP, 20 attack and magic attack
  • 7 items: 20 attack and magic attack, 10% defense ignore

Absolabs Coin Shop

You can now buy the weapons from this set in a shop in Haven, for 8 Absolabs Coins each (including the Zero Lucky Scroll) as well as the Shoes and Cape (for 3 Coins each).

Absolabs Coins

To get 1 Absolabs Coin, you must trade in either 50 A Rank Energy Cores or 1 S Rank Energy Core. I believe the A Rank ones are from daily quests and the S Rank one is from Suu.

Root Abyss Seal Guardians

New boss Souls have been added for Pierre, Von Bon, Bloody Queen, Vellum, and Suu! There are two skills for each (I guess one is for the Magnificent versions).

Pierre has one where he uses his hat skills on monsters around you, and one where you can randomly summon either Blue, Red, or Purple Pierre for a period of time. Both of Von Bon‘s skills are summons, and Vellum has one where he shoots his laser and one where you summon a Junior Vellum for a period of time.

Both of Suu’s skills are summons as well, I think the difference is damage (and maybe animation?). For some reason there’s no information about Bloody Queen’s haha.

    Question: since Snipe’s cap was raised to 400m, did they update the hyper skill for it, or did they overlook it?

    • mr.wzlee
      January 8, 2015 at 1:12 pm

      I think Max left out this thing. Snipe- Limit Canceler is now raising the cap of Snipe from 400m to 500m. Max, I saw this from the website you posted for the monster stats for Mechanical Grave. Can you clarify this? Thanks. =)

    What the fuck is this? Why is this patch named Maple ICE & BURN if there’s absolutely nothing for Aran or Evan? Fuck this game. It’s ok tho, all those other classes ~REALLY~ needed those buffs!

    Do you think they’ll make a better Link Skill Manager, or did this new log process sort of solve the problem?

    • Max
      January 8, 2015 at 4:23 pm

      I’m not sure, it does make it easier but I still hope they’ll update Link Skills so it’s not as annoying xP

    If you access Suu/Lotus through the Mechanical Graveyard, where did you access the boss battle for him before this patch?

    • Max
      January 8, 2015 at 11:18 pm

      You could use the boss matching system, or I believe either talk to Moko or the Dimensional Mirror to get warped to the map outside of Suu.

    This 200+ area is pathetic lol, 120k exp from the strongest mobs and there seems to be not even party play? Stronghold still beats this. The +cap on snipe is already more than enough but monstrous merc/xenon buffs really, those jobs really deserved it they were so weak! *no*

    • Blix2
      May 11, 2015 at 7:07 pm

      LOL Mercs are strong? Clearly you haven’t played one since the nerfs (this was posted before the nerfs) Mercs are insanely week, not the best bossers, and definitely one of the worst mobbing classes in the game.

    if they change those passive to ON / OFF skill, why cant they change Night Lord’s Passive to ON / OFF as well? This makes even no sense. :X

    This new absolute set rips empress apart but still doesn’t compete with cra and tyrant, I think any new set to
    be relevant has to incorporate Tyrant equips like the Tms overall. I like that overall a lot because it makes alien helmet relevant again with all those lovely slots and 4th tier pot XD

  30. April 22, 2015 at 10:51 pm

    Why aren’t they buffing kaiser? Xenon is now so OP. Snipe deals 12 lines of dmg, with illusion up at 400% and 240%. Kaiser can still do only 10 lines at 280%. How is that fair?

  31. aaa4three
    April 30, 2015 at 1:31 pm

    I think they shld either make kaiser more op or more tanker(becoz weapon def is locked at 9999). The nexon team shld atleast remove the weapon def limit set on kaiser.
