KMST ver. 1.2.027 – God of Control & Name Change System

Stage 3

The first test server patch of 2016 includes a new type of challenge content, as well as a new name change system and a few other minor updates.

Act 2 of Heroes of Maple will take place in the ruins of the all-seeing god Abraxas! Also, you guys might not have noticed but I tweeted that you could get weapon versions of Mercedes, Luminous, and EunWol through Royal Style Coupons. Well, in this test server patch, they also added pet versions! However, the images have not been added yet so I can’t show them off.

God of Control

Forest of Guts

God of Control is a new type of content that challenges the limits of your control through various stages. One set of stages has high speed dashes and unique jumping that is different than usual. Other stages will be revealed in the official server.

  1. To Play ‘God of Control’
    • Users level 33+ can participate in God of Control.
    • After completing the God of Control! quest, you can enter through the Dimensional Mirror.
    • You can challenge God of Control 10 times per day.
  2. ‘God of Control’ Basic Controls
    • You can press the ← or → arrow keys twice to use a high speed dash.
    • While jumping, you can press ← or → to control your character. Certain stages will give you more free control.
    • You can press the ↑ arrow key when jumping to jump higher than regular.
  3. ‘God of Control’ Basic Rules
    • The stage will be cleared once you reach the goal portal.
    • You will be given a ranking of 1/2/3 stars based on your clear time.
    • You can stay inside a stage for up to 10 minutes, after which you will automatically exit.

Currently, there is one set of 10 stages. As you complete them, your best times will be recorded and you will be able to see your rank (stars).

I completed the first six stages (one took me a while haha) and I gave up on the seventh. It’s actually pretty challenging and I’m looking forward to seeing other types of stages!

Character Name Change

Character Name Change

The Character Name Change system has been added.

  • Instead of existing character name change events which would only take effect after patches, a new character name change system has been added which takes effect after relogging.
  • You can change your character’s name through Mister Newname in every town.
  • By talking to him and choosing the ‘Change character name’ option, you can change your character name. After choosing your desired character and character name, you can re-login and play your renamed character instantly.
  • You can change a character’s name 1 time per week.
  • To change your name, you will need to pay 15,000 Maple Points or use a Character Name Change Coupon.
  • Precautions to take before changing your characters’ names are:
    • You cannot change your name to one that is already taken or one that includes blocked words.
    • After changing your name, items you created before will not have the creator’s name changed.
    • Your name in the Guild Skill weather effect will not be changed.
    • Your name on wedding invitations will not be changed.
    • Your name on rankings shown by NPCs will not be changed.
    • Your name on Cash items or gifts that have messages, messages, or deliveries will not be changed.

Mister Newname

For example, I talked to Mister Newname in Mechanical Grave and…

Name Changed

Voila! Instant name change!

Heroes of Maple

Like always, they did not add any Acts in the test server but Act 2 will be released in the next official server patch! It will take place in the ruins of the all-seeing god, Abraxaswhich is where Evan was at the very end of Act 1.5.

They did however add some new NPCs and illustrations in the data so I’ll show them off to you guys.

I think these ones for Demon are actually from Act 1.5 but I didn’t put them in a post before so here they are haha.

In terms of villains, it looks like Arkarium will appear, along with some new Demon enemies riding wolves.

A few new illustrations for the Heroes were added (EunWol with tears of joy?!) in addition to special animations where Mercedes performs an acrobatic flip off of Sylvidia, Phantom appears in the flurry of cards, and Luminous teleports in.

… and Evan gets caught in a booby trap.

Finally, here are some new monsters, a rock golem thingy titled Shimma in the data, and a mysterious girl surrounded by clocks and chains…

        I hope they give us rewards or something on the main servers for each star and it doesn’t just turn in to another piece of forgotten content a la monster life. hell yeah for kinesis/zero emblems though. And zero on reboot! Finally.

        • Max
          January 8, 2016 at 6:12 pm

          Yeah I’m 100% sure they just haven’t added them yet because otherwise this content will be pretty much worthless lol.

    Does the God of Control stuff give you any rewards, or is it just for fun?

    • Anonymous
      January 8, 2016 at 2:21 am

      No rewards yet, but the NPCs besides One Two Punch Cat (really?…) don’t work, though they do talk to you when you enter certain stages to talk to you about mechanics.

    • Max
      January 8, 2016 at 7:42 am

      Right now I don’t think there are any rewards… hopefully they’ll add some later.

    Oh yeah, is the damage skin storage system similar to GMS, in that you can store and re-use skins infinitely? I’d love to be able to put my special event skins in there so I don’t lose them.

    If i may know, i know its totally off topic but i have no idea where to message you, and frankly all the forums i know about kms are outdated. But if i may ask, whats the ideal way to train after 160+, What equips are end game, and last but not least how can i contact you for further info. Sorry if this was off topic, Thanks~

    • Max
      January 8, 2016 at 6:13 pm

      Not sure about training spots, you can probably google a guide for GMS and just use the spots that KMS has? End-game equips would probably be CRA + Tyrant + boss accessory set or something like that :O

          That seems highly likely. I just now looked back in the official story of Damien web comics and the attire and hair style match, plus Arkarium states he is using his power to keep her body from wasting away.

    Hey max, about the name change, you said either 15k maple points or a Name change coupon, where do we get these name change coupons? will they be sold in cash shop too? Those last pictures of the monsters look like pantheon which means Nova revamp soon?! L>Nova Archer, Thief and Mage!!!

    • Max
      January 9, 2016 at 6:25 pm

      Not in the Cash Shop, I think they’ll be given out through events and stuff so they can still have ‘name change events’ like they did before, except now they’ll just give out a coupon so you can use the new system.

        January 9, 2016 at 11:54 pm

        so only through Maple Points and Events.. Not even Reward points (Mileage system) ?!

        • Max
          January 10, 2016 at 1:47 pm

          Yeah. Well actually in KMS you can buy Maple Points for NX in the Cash Shop (10k NX -> 10k Maple Points) so you can basically buy them with NX. And KMS also has the Meso Market where you can buy/sell Maple Points from other users so you can also buy it with mesos 🙂

      January 10, 2016 at 1:48 pm

      Hmm I don’t live in Korea and it works fine… that’s a weird error. Have you tried waiting until the Character Card/Part Time Job buttons become active? When you login, it takes a bit of time to connect to the server and retrieve that information so maybe you’re logging in too early.

        Oh, it works now thanks. But how do I reduce the lag? My screen freezes a lot of the time. I dont know if its internet speed, or just that there’s a lot of ppl on the server or…?

    Hi Max, I have a question regarding Phantom’s Talent of Phantom Thief H. I noticed that Cannoneer’s Hyper Skill Buckshot wasn’t included in your list in https://orangemushroom.net/2015/12/02/kms-ver-1-2-249-heroes-of-maple-unveil/ . Does that mean that Phantom is unable to steal that skill? Thanks in advance.
