kMSt ver. 1.2.006 – The SEED R!

Alicia and the Seed

A new Tespia patch has been released, this time including the updates to The SEED, a new party quest, and many game system changes!

The SEED Question Box

The SEED R has been reorganized.

  • The SEED’s entry limit has been increased from level 100 to level 140. Users who have already completed the introduction quest earlier can enter normally.
  • The SEED’s default Hazy Stone time has been increased from 5 minutes to 10 minutes. Mounted Hazy Stones’s duration boosts will be slightly lowered but in most situations, users will gain more play time inside the tower.
  • Weekly rankings have been added to The SEED. The rankings reset at midnight on Monday, and users who were 1st-10th place will receive an Emblem with strong potential options.
  • Based on the number of floors conquered, users will now receive a certain number of The SEED Medals of Honor.
  • The SEED ring box configurations have been changed. Consumable items will no longer be given through these boxes. In addition, the chances of getting other items has been changed so that users can obtain more valuable items.
  • Glinda’s shop now sells The SEED Question Ring Box, which gives a ring with random potential options that expires in 3~5 days, as well as Scroll Traces.
  • Collecting 10 Broken Box Pieces will now gives the highest level Ring Box.

Here are the changes done to the floors of The SEED.

  • The 2nd Floor and the 23rd Floor have been swapped.
  • Monsters on the 3rd Floor will drop more Turtle Eggs. If the Adventurer you gave Eggs to loses, you can talk to them to get them back.
  • The number of correct platforms needed to pass the 9th Floor has been decreased from 11 to 8.
  • The 14th Floor will now give you 99 bullets and 3 minutes to kill all the monsters. After completing the stage, your Hazy Stone time will be decreased based on the number of bullets used.

The SEED Master Emblem

I’m not sure which ranks get which but there are two The SEED Emblems in the data.

  • The SEED Expert Emblem: 15 all stats, 3 attack and magic attack [30% boss damage, 30% defense ignore, 9% total damage]
  • The SEED Master Emblem: 20 all stats, 5 attack and magic attack [40% boss damage, 40% boss damage, 30% defense ignore]

The Emblems expire in one week.

The Xerxes of Chryse party quest has been added! You can talk to Michaella at Spiegelmann’s Guest House to begin. Characters level 75-120 can participate but the recommended levels are 75-90.

The party quest requires 1~4 people, and can be completed 10 times per day. In some of the maps inside, you’ll gain extra experience with your party members and more Xerxes’ Core Piecess will spawn in the bonus stage.

Thanks to maplefreak26 for the video! You can see the party quest uses a new Chain skill mechanic, which allows you to grapple from one platform to the other. After beating the boss, a Bonus Round will start, giving you the chance to collect Xerxes’ Core Pieces.

Michaella's New Glasses Michael's New GLasses

100 Cores can be traded in for Michael’s New Glasses (3 all stats, 5 slots, level 75) or Michaella’s New Glasses (2 all stats, 2 attack and magic attack, 5 slots, level 90). Both items are untradeable but can be traded with the Scissors of Karma.

All or Job Rankings

Mu Lung Dojo’s ranking system now has job rankings. The job rankings will show the top 9 players of your job.

The 1st place user of the ‘total rankings’ will receive Hero’s Gloves, while the 1st place user of each job ranking will receive Mu Gong’s Gloves, and the 2nd and 3rd place users of each job ranking will receive So Gong’s Gloves. All other users will no longer receive prizes.

Pink Bean Death Count

Pink Bean (both Normal and Chaos Mode) now have a death count of 5 deaths per person, without loss of experience.

Using a Rune

The Rune system has been reorganized.

  • Runes will now spawn in maps without monsters.
  • Their respawn time has been reduced.
  • A notification will appear on the screen when a Rune spawns.
  • The duration of Rune buffs has been increased from 2 minutes to 3 minutes.
  • Runes will now show information on their effects when you go nearby.

Elite Boss' Appearance

The Elite Boss system has been reorganized.

  • Rare Treasure Box items have been added.
  • Users who hit the Elite Boss at least once will receive a Rare Treasure Box, and users who deal the most damage may receive more as additional compensation (up to a maximum of 3).
  • Rare Treasure Boxes can only be obtained if you are within 40 levels below and 30 levels above the Elite Boss.
  • Rare Treasure Boxes can no longer be obtained from the Bonus Stage.
  • 20 Rare Treasure Boxes can be opened at most per day per account.
  • ‘Plague’ and ‘Commandeering’ Elite Boss monsters have had effects added to show their skills in advance
  • ‘Plague’ and ‘Commandeering’ Elite Boss skills have been combined to prevent redundancy.
  • ‘Reflecting’ Elite Monsters have had an effect added that can be seen when the skill is activated immediately.
  • The number of skills an Elite Boss can have has been decreased from 3 to 2.

Soul Weapon Effect OFF

The ability to toggle Soul Weapon effects has been added.

  • An ON/OFF button has been added to the Soul Weapon UI.
  • When the button is ON, the effect will be visible to you and other users but if it is OFF, it will disappear.

      Hey Max, that “New” Chain skill mechanic, isn’t a new MECHANIC, the only NEW thing is that this particular chain skill is not class specific… Grappling was already a thing for Angelic Buster and Kaiser…

      (unless I’m mistaken that they both function like a Hookshot, and while the Nova’s grapple works like the Hookshot from Legend of Zelda, this one works like the Grappling Hook from the Wind Waker…)

      • Dark Evan
        March 20, 2015 at 11:38 pm

        Hey max, I have a question:
        “This spring update’s big picture has not been revealed yet. Coverage in more detail will be released soon!

        EunWol (Forgotten Hero): I want to see my friend…
        Freud (Previous Dragon Master): I’ll be back!”

        I don’t speak Korean, and since this a translation of an image, I can’t copy/paste it to google translate it (before you say there’s no point/it’s crap, the only thing it SEEMS good for is giving alternate/out of context, translations from foreign languages TO English, but only the LITERAL meaning from English to other languages, and phrases like “The big picture” are often not the same word for word, just have the same meaning [ex: the Japanese phrase “Coin for a cat” is equivalent to English “Pearls before Swine” and while to express that you ARE hungry/thirsty/in pain/furious in Spanish, you literally say you HAVE hunger/thirst/pain/fury. “Yo Tengo Furioso” means I am furious, but it literally means, “I have fury”])

        Anyway… do you think that “Big Picture” means that we haven’t seen the primary intent/reason for this update?

        It doesn’t seem like “Big Picture” could be something as small as an event… That may just be a teaser for something BIGGER…

        They promised us Aran and Evan revamps during the Coordinator’s Helping Hand, could they be referring to that? Could THAT be the “Big Picture”?

        On the other hand…
        Shade says “I want to see my friend”, meaning he misses Freud…
        Freud says “I’ll be back!”, as though he’s reassuring his friend that he too will return…
        He IS a master of all sorts of magic, including time magic (and maybe Death Magic [necromancy])… Could we be faced with a SEVENTH hero [or rather, the original second…]?
        Before any of you say “LOL we already have Evan”, remember that the Black Mage’s curse, was INTENDED to be used to break the spirit pact (on Freud, because he was delusional enough to think that the Pact was not only PREVENTING Afrien from betraying Freud, but also preventing him from DESIRING/CONSIDERING betrayal… and that Afrien would join him, Ironically, because afrien got in the way, his intended target was the only Hero NOT affected by the curse), not to freeze the heroes, and it did…

        Meaning Freud no longer has access to the power of the Onyx Dragons… But unlike Evan, he was a formidable magician WITHOUT the spirit pact, he mastered all sorts of spells before creating the pact, so while Evan relies ENTIRELY on Mir, Freud would get very LITTLE, if ANY power from Afrien [maybe a few passive buffs/link skill] and instead rely on his mastery of various types of magic [basically, he’d be an elemental mage with access to Fire, Ice, Lightning, Dark, Holy, and {maybe} Poison magic, in addition to support/healing magic, and a lil bit of Battle magic, and maybe a summon spell or two… {not like a TON of each spell, just 1 or 2, [and an “elemental expert” hyper/4th job that would make the non-4th job ones viable in 4th…] and, to switch things up, he’ll either use a Spellbook as his weapon, or JUST wands…}])

        Also, the fact that he wears COMPLETELY different clothes in Mirror World [and appears at the same time as Evan, who is presumably his REINCARNATION {and why are ANY of the heroes still alive in Mirror, they were never frozen… and Freud may not be able to cheat death with magic, but he believes in an afterlife, and shade ending up in Limbo/Oblivion (both literally, as in he’s been completely forgotten, and theologically, as in “the soul dies with the body”), could because he mistakenly believed he offered his life, not his existence, at the time he said “No afterlife? Freud’s gonna be disappointed, (and maybe Providence allowed him to return to the land of the living BC his job wasn’t finished [but only just now, because “It was too soon”)
        and since Freud made the spell, he’d know that there WAS a 6th hero, since he knew the spell required a sacrifice, and since he didn’t remember the person’s name or face… (and he would never sacrifice a stranger, and would never forget the face of a stranger if he volunteered without giving a name), he could set things straight for Shade/Eunwol as a result (since he knew someone was messing with their memories, and he could ask Shade to “Recall the oath the heroes made to protect maple world” to prove that he’s not a spy PRETENDING to be that guy…) allowing them to trust Shade/Eunwol knowing that the spell required a sacrifice of a friend… after keeping in mind that they should trust someone who uses “Heroes’ Oath” that claims to be their friend.
        And of course, only Freud REALLY knew how to MAKE the seal, since they were all frozen, AFTER he escaped, he wouldn’t have time to explain to them that the spell had a sacrifice they wouldn’t remember… But Freud would know that this PARTICULAR spell needed a sacrifice…)
        Alternatively, the term “Big Picture” could have a symbolic double meaning… As in, the Heroes don’t remember the full scope of the oath, because they don’t remember making that pact with a 6th person, or the reason that guy became a Hero… “We all have our own backgrounds, personalities, specialty, and reasons for fighting, whether that reason be to protect the people you lead, to protect the world your loved ones cherished, to protect the light from the dark threatening to consume all, to protect your honor, to protect the Family that took you in when you were alone or to protect all life, but even though we all have very different personalities, we don’t always get along, and we may have different reasons for doing so, we all gathered because we have one thing in common: Our oath! The black mage sees our dependence on other people as a weakness, distant hearts have different motives, and usually different goals, and usually cannot be in perfect sync, and We may be six COMPLETELY different people, but while we all have our own reasons, our goal is the ONE AND THE SAME! Our hearts are ONE, and we will FIGHT AS ONE! We will FIGHT for those who cannot defend themselves, we will fight for Our LOVED ONES! Our NEIGHBORS! Our DESIRE FOR PEACE! Our HOME! Our WORLD!, Today, their fight is MY FIGHT! Today, THEIR FIGHT IS OUR FIGHT!”
        Freud’s Diary, pt 2 could be a permanent fixture… with the second part of Freud’s Diary, then each class could have a 200 quest, where the Final Testament of the Diary Upgrades the 200 hyper by inspiring the Adventurers/Cygnus Knights/Resistance and revealing the truth about the spell to the heroes/gives shade a way to prove that he’s on the level by “Showing them the page”, upgrading Heroic Memories/Heroes’ Oath to “True Heroic Memories”/”Completed Heroes’ Oath”, “Remembers the ENTIRE oath the Heroes took to defeat the Black Mage, allowing it to remain in effect the ENTIRE time”

        True Will of Liberty: The encouraging words of Freud inspired you to fight HARDER for liberty, allowing your resolve to never waver…

    >chryse is now a higher level PQ
    I am left to wonder what they expect lowbies to do to get to higher levels, given how they keep taking all the lower level “stuff to do” and making higher level PQs out of it.

    Is Chryse itself still in the same place as it was before, or was it removed? Also I’ll never forget the original quests for that place, man were those bad!

      Chryse is still closed off in Tespia, not sure what they’re planning to do with it now that this PQ Is out…

    Worried about Dojo update…… its going to make dojo equips harder for undfunded people to get…. especially in populated servers and for popular classes.
