kMS ver. 1.2.227 – Maple Ice & Burn: Mechanical Grave!

ver. 1.2.227

The second patch of the Winter update, Maple Ice & Burn, has been released! This one includes the new level 200+ area, some minigame updates as well as system changes and skill changes.

Psychic Yutnori

A new game has been added to Star Planet, called Psychic Yutnori!

Psychic Yutnori

In this new mode, you and your opponent get access to 3 special abilities (purple ones affect your roll and orange ones affect the board). They’re all a lot of fun, like one that makes it a 50% chance to get a 1 and 50% chance to get a 5.

Star Yutnori Options

You can choose between Classic and Psychic Yutnori by talking to the attendant in the Star Arena.

Return of the Legends Changes

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.

Return of the Legends Skill Changes

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. The maximum character limit has been increased to 36.

Finally, when logging off, you will be returned to the character selection screen instead of being forced to log in again.

Star Force

Some Star Force maps have been changed. In all cases, the monster regeneration rate has been increased (this means more monsters and faster).

In El Nath, you can now use the Danger Zone Taxi to go straight to the Dead Mine. In Ludibrium, Twisted Passage and Forgotten Passage have had their terrain changed. In Minar Forest, you can now use the Danger Zone Taxi to go straight to Dragon’s Nest.

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.

Skill Changes

Paladin

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%, in addition to existing effects Divine Charge now grants the Holy element

Marksman

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

Viper

Vipers are not very viable at bosses due to their need to stay close to them so we made Stance passive.

  • HP Increase HP Increase: in addition to existing effects, HP Increase now gives 100% Stance
  • Ultra Charge Ultra Charge: due to HP Increase’s change, this skill’s Stance effect has been removed

Captain

Fusillade’s attack range did not match the animation.

  • Fusillade Fusillade: vertical range has been increased

Mercedes

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

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

Kaiser

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

On Off Skills

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.

  • Night Lord‘s Mark of Assassin
  • EunWol’s Fox Spirit
  • Angelic Buster‘s Soul Seeker Expert
  • Night Walker‘s Shadow Bats
  • Xenon‘s Aegis System
  • Archmage (F/P)‘s Ignite

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.

Pierre Soul Von Bon Soul Bloody Queen Soul Vellum Soul Suu Soul

New Boss Souls have been added for Pierre, Von Bon, Bloody Queen, Vellum, and Suu.

Pierre, Von Bon and Vellum’s Souls are just special attacks, Bloody Queen’s gives a buff, and Suu’s is a summon-type Soul.

Magnificent Boss Souls

If you’re lucky enough to get a Magnificent Soul, you’ll get a stronger skill. Now, all 5 Souls are summon-types. For Pierre, you’ll summon one of three colours of Pierre and for Vellum, you’ll summon Junior Vellum.

Edelstein World Map Mechanical Grave World Map Mechanical Grave Map

After Gelimer was defeated in the Blockbuster: Black Heaven, the giant airship Black Heaven crashed into the ground above Edelstein. Now, this area, titled Mechanical Grave, is exploreable!

Mechanical Grave is designed for users level 200 and higher. It is accessible through a new cable car in Edelstein Trails 4, or by using the taxi in Edelstein.

Mechanical Grave Areas

  1. Haven: the home of the Black Wings’ abandoned robots.
  2. Mechanical Grave: roads leading to the Skyline with rogue robots.
  3. Skyline: a large tower used to access Black Heaven
  4. Black Heaven Deck: the exterior of the fallen air ship Black Heaven.
  5. Black Heaven Interior: the inside of the fallen air ship Black Heaven.
  6. Core Entrance: the Core of Black Heaven where the boss Suu resides.

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.

Daily Quests

After completing the story quests in Mechanical Grave, you’ll gain access to some daily quests. There are six different kinds of quests which you can do.

Normal Suu

In addition, Suu has received a Normal Mode. This mode is similar to the Hard Mode which was released earlier, but is easier to clear. You can see more information about the boss here.

Energy Cores

In Mechanical Grave, you’ll be able to collect a new type of item, Energy Cores. Suu drops S-rank Cores and you can get 3 A-rank cores per day by completing 5 daily quests. Some of the daily quests also reward Cores themselves.

Absolabs Coins and Shop

You can trade in 50 A-rank Cores or 1 S-rank Core for 1 Absolabs Coin, which you can use to buy Absolabs weapons (8 coins, including the Zero scroll), shoes (3 coins), or capes (3 coins).

Absolabs Set

Speaking of which, 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

Fluffy Cat Pet

In the Cash Shop, new Fluffy Sheep pets have been added.

Pandora's Box Special Items

The Pandora’s Box has been updated with the new Boss Souls and the level 145 Scarlet weapons.

Epi's Box Special Items

The Epi’s Box has been updated to feature items related to Black Heaven.

MIB Coin Shop and Briefcase Event

    So, wait, wait. 5 quests for 3 A-Rank cores per day? (At least make the coins vary, darn it) Where 1 Coin is worth 50 of those? And the equips need multiple coins? And Normal mode Suu is most DEFINITELY going to be impossible for average people?
    *Throws chair out window*

    I get these equips are supposed to be pretty darned difficult to get, but this is just obscene. 17 Days for one coin? 51 days for the CHEAPEST equips? Really?
    I’m done.

    • Anonymous Coward
      January 14, 2015 at 10:02 pm

      Cores* vary.
      And also, wouldn’t 1-3 coins per quest be fair? Ugh.

    • Karkain
      January 14, 2015 at 11:46 pm

      While I agree with you, the idea is to coerce you into fighting Suu, or grind it out the “easy” way. Give it time, though, because they’ll likely make it reasonable-ish eventually.

      • Anonymous Coward
        January 15, 2015 at 8:18 pm

        Yeah, I suppose that is true. I guess whenever level 170 equips that will completely overshadow those come out. The 3 A cores, 5 quest thing still pisses me off a great deal.

        I even bet those quests will be like like:
        “Hey, kill 999 of these guys” “Also, collect 500 of this item” “Oh, hey, go get 200 of this rare item.” And then including some unholy mixture of these.

        Yeah, now I’m ranting, sorry.

      After actually doing some, I think some of the daily quests also reward A-rank Cores! I did 2 daily quests today and I got 1 A-rank Core, and I see the quest that says if I complete 3 more I can get 3 Cores.

        *Sees this only now*
        Huh, well, wow. That’s actually a gigantic improvement.
        Substantially less miffed about it now, thanks for the update Max.

    This is some good news, The Auto seekers are fun but I have noticed they can lag other players and while I do mostly fight by myself I do know they can be a pain to other players who hate it when I throw seekers

    An on and off will be useful and nice to see Korean Folk town slowly coming back

    this is fucking great! now we have tons of hackers hacking scroll traces in the special ticket prize event map with those bunnies. I heard they get like 100k traces per hour pr char, which is basically 15 USD per hour per each char, keeping in mind the deflation and tax for selling mesos (or no tax but sell cheap illegally in black (china) market).making millions a year.

    yea well, i dont mind usually but those shitty little cygnus chars botting through RA gets annoying sometimes
