kMS ver. 1.2.247 – Zakum Update & Hunting Changes!

ver. 1.2.247 World Selection

In the newest patch, Zakum has been updated to use the skeleton animation system! In addition, various hunting changes and bug fixes have been implemented.

Oh yeah, for those of you who have been awaiting the Aran and Evan update (for the past couple of years), we finally have a date!!

Zakum: The Newborn

Zakum’s battle pattern has been renewed.

  • Zakum now uses the skeleton animation system, giving it a more diverse battle pattern.
  • Zakum’s 8 arms’ patterns have been updated as well, and will change based on the phase Zakum is currently in.
  • Zakum now uses the Death Count system (5 deaths allowed) and has a potion cooldown.
  • You can enter through the Door to Zakum in El Nath or use the Boss shortcut.

Chaos Zakum has been changed.

  • You can now clear Chaos Zakum 2 times per week. This is no longer shared with Easy/Normal Zakum, which have a combined clear limit of 2 times per day.
  • Chaos Zakum’s difficulty has been increased.
  • Chaos Zakum now uses the Death Count system (5 deaths allowed) and has a potion cooldown.
  • New equipment rewards have been added.
    • Enraged Zakum's Helmet Enraged Zakum’s Helmet (45 all stats, 400 HP and MP, 2 attack and magic attack, 11 slots, level 150, untradeable upon equipping, can be traded with the Platinum Karma Scissors)
    • Enraged Zakum's Belt Enraged Zakum’s Belt (18 all stats, 150 HP and MP, 1 attack and magic attack, 3 slots, level 150, untradeable upon equipping)
    • Enraged Zakum's Cape Enraged Zakum’s Cape (12 all stats, 1 attack and magic attack, 10 speed and 5 jump, 7 slots, level 150, untradeable upon equipping, can be traded with the Platinum Karma Scissors)

Zakum's Altar

Both Normal and Chaos Zakum have a similar moveset. I’m not too sure how it works but it seems you can hit both Zakum’s body and its arms to deal damage. While the arms are still alive, they can do one of two things:

  • The arms will slam down onto the ground where there is a small effect, if you get hit you’ll instantly die.
  • The three platforms on each side will spawn and the bottom floor will be set on fire, dealing constant damage. The arms will slam together creating a laser on the platform level that has an indicator. If you get hit, you’ll instantly die.

After you defeat the first phase, Zakum will crumble and start using new attacks.

  • Zakum will dig into the ground and come back up in a different place (like Vellum).
  • Rocks will fall from the ceiling, if they hit you you’ll be caught in a web that slows you and blocks any movement skills.
  • Zakum will summon a large green cube that you must be under before he casts his attack or else you’ll instantly die.
  • Zakum will cast super defense/magic defense, causing your attacks to deal 1 damage.

Field Hunting Reorganization

Bounty Hunter Brothers Polo and Prito


While hunting monsters, there is a chance that a Bounty Hunter portal will be created. When you enter the portal, you’ll encounter the Bounty Hunter Brothers, Polo and Prito, and you will randomly join them on one of the following adventures:


Bounty HuntBounty Hunt (Stage 5)

  • Bounty Hunt: help Polo hunt the 5 waves of incoming monsters

If you participate in Polo’s content, you’ll receive a lot of experience (from hunting the monsters) as a reward. If you participate in Prito’s content, you’ll receive experience and items based on your performance as a reward.

Bounty Hunter's Portal

You can enter 20 Bounty Hunter portals per day, and the limit is reset every day at midnight.

New items from Polo and Prito have been added.

  • Polo’s Friend (medal) [15 all stats, 5 attack and magic attack, 1000 HP and MP]

Rune of GrowthRune of Transcendence Rune of Bombardment

Three new Runes have been added.

  • Rune of Growth: the map’s summoned monster limit will be increased by 3x for 1 minute (this effect will disappear if you change maps)

  • Rune of Bombardment: ride a flying ship with powerful attacks for 1 minute

Here’s a video of the new Runes, and the change to the Rune of Destruction.

    Max do you happen to know the requirements to get polo/prito’s medals? I would assume it’s just something like “complete 100 of the tasks each brother provides” but I can’t find it in my medal UI, nor does talking to them through the portal guide give any insight.

    Did… they ever put Reborn Zakum in the Test Server? Or was the Test Server content (from a previous post) all that was in the server up until the moment the patch was released, ergo Reborn Zakum was only recently released to the public without any player testing done beforehand.

    though I hope they can revamp the other 3 together so that all 6 heroes have the same illustration style.

    Ok, so from the KSMT, we also now have a Revamped Zakum, with much better attacks(HE FREAKIN JUMPS?!) but with terrible drops now being that the Chaos Zakum Helm is gone and replaced with a terrible cape, belt and a new version of the helm that has 45 all stats but loses the 10%hp/mp(and it doesn’t drop the poison weapons from what it looks like, or maybe Max had bad luck?) The equips have no set effect, are not superior Items, and have no secondary effect like ‘damage to bosses’ or pdr for that matter. Way to make the pay2win gap slightly bigger. The old hat was better for Xenons and Avengers, and this new hat is nowhere near as good…
    On the plus side, Aran and Evan are getting a revamp. Yay… I guess. still wish they would fix other things(I/L mage in general, at least Evan and Aran’s skill work, and are not purely there to look pretty) but hey, it’s something. The new skeletal system would be great with Evan as it would fix the massive delay off his earlier skills, but Aran? I hope they don’t give him combo based skills, ones that are based on the ‘killing monsters combo exp’ effect. The only way I can see them actually pulling it off was if they made it so that your power would be permanently adjusted even if you lose the combo, kinda like that skill that Kinesis got.

    • Max
      October 16, 2015 at 7:49 pm

      Yeah it still drops the Poisonic weapons.

    • October 18, 2015 at 7:31 pm

      Demon Avengers and Xenons are freakishly powerful on their own (and if they have powerful equips, they are monsters*). As for the new Zakum equips, Nexon can later decide to add set stats like they’ve done in the past, we just have to be patient.

      *NOTE:When we take into account cap damage dps, yeah, the DA is awful (I think…?).

  25. October 19, 2015 at 2:00 pm

    does the new helmets works same as CRA hats?(like chaos vellum hat) that can be part of any set? or its just useless hat with bit better stats than chaos?

    I still don’t get why they think giving every boss OHKOs (and other attacks that ignore all defensive skills) is a good idea.

    • FateOfPandas
      November 29, 2015 at 2:21 am

      I think its because they dont want you to hold down a button and beat a boss, but instead have dodge and avoid things, what i s
      don’t get is potion cooldowns, overall they arent bad but don’t make zakum reduce you to 1 hp before i can power elixir that’s dumb and overpowered

        He doesn’t seem to 1/1 you anymore, he can just OHKO you the second you respawn. And because he’s a boss, all your defensive/invincibility skills to protect against that are completely useless. Why even have those skills at all?
