KMS ver. 1.2.256 – Minor Changes and New Events

Yeah I bet by the title you can tell what this patch is (hint: boring). It’s pretty much everything in the last test server patch + 2 events: Rock Paper Scissors with Zakum and Higher and Higher Crown Stacking (which won’t even start for another couple of weeks).

Really hoping for something exciting to come soon for the summer update!

Client Optimization

The client’s size has been reduced by 1.78GB through data optimization. (I actually checked with a clean install of the last version and this one, and it’s exactly right haha).

Note that the patch file for this patch was literally just redownloading the client (~6gb) so it errored out for a lot of people and Nexon recommended to just redownload the installer.

Damage Skin Storage

The Damage Skin Storage‘s maximum number of slots has been expanded from 10 to 15.

Clothing Box

The Clothing Box will now highlight items that it cannot dispose of in red.

When using the Miracle Circulator, you can now hover over a stat’s line to see it fully.

Updated Skill Transparency

Certain skills have been changed to allow the ‘skill effect transparency‘ option to affect them as well.

It seems to include summons, install type skills, and hit effects now. I think they also increased the maximum transparency of your own skills, because I can barely see any of them now haha (I have Arrow Platter installed as well as Phoenix summoned in the above SS).

  • Black Knight Mokadin
  • Crazy Mage Karianne
  • Human Hunter July
  • Charge Type CQ57
  • Fighter Plaid

For the glorious one.

An error where Elite Monsters and Elite Bosses were not appearing in Korean Folk Town has ben fixed.

An error where Elite Monsters would disappear in Black Heaven Maze 5 has been fixed.

Rock-Paper-Scissors with Zakum

Rock-Paper-Scissors with Zakum

The Rock-Paper-Scissors with Zakum has begun and will run until June 1. The reigning champion, Petite Zakum, has returned and wants challengers for his title!

To play, you’ll first have to collect Rock-Paper-Scissors Tickets. You can do this in two ways:

  1. Hunt monsters around your level (you can acquire up to 200 tickets per day with this method)
  2. Complete the ’10 Minute Ticket’ quest from Zakum which requires you to hold an item for 10 minutes to trade in for 10 Tickets (you can acquire up to 100 tickets per day with this method)


Talk to Petite Zakum to play once you have some tickets! The UI looks like this.

  1. Your pick of Rock-Paper-Scissors
  2. Petite Zakum’s pick of Rock-Paper-Scissors
  3. Your current win streak
  4. Your current prize
  5. Your choosing area/results of the match

If you’re unfamiliar with this event, basically you just play Rock-Paper-Scissors. If you win, you move up one item on the right and can then choose to cash out (receive the item) or keep playing to move up more.

However, if you lose, you don’t get any of the prizes and your streak returns to 0, unless you pay a certain number of tickets to continue at your current streak number.

      you’ll probably be SoL. Max has said a couple times he doesn’t play anymore.
      Neither does anyone else. I’m amazed they still have the game running. It’s dead as fuck.

        Awwww…. Well thanks for telling me. saddly I had such big hopes for this game… I can’t belive they ruined it already ;(

          It’s not that they ‘ruined it’, it was just never a good idea from the getgo. From the start, when they first showed off that awful cube-designed world in the first gameplay trailer, to the reveal that it would be an action RPG, and then the closed betas when they revealed the game was a worse, more generic grind than MS1.

          The issue with the level cap being 30 at first then quickly expanded was a big issue, they quite literally dumped all the content they had within like 3 months of the game’s launch, and they’re actively developing right now. A bi-annual solstice schedule like maple 1 has will not work with a game where you are quite literally capable of having the best gear in a week of play. The customization is about the only saving grace to maple 2, and it’s still heavily censored, really unwieldy to create stuff, and expensive as hell. Plus the issue of PVP being a p2w shitfest, oh and buying potions, and being able to pay to reset boss entries(keys, which are also tied to PQs) and a bunch of other really really annoying dumb stuff.

          Trust me, you’re not missing out on anything. Hype was built up entirely by a really small community of people who stopped playing maple forever ago (zelkova, spadow) and think their word means anything.

      Yeah I don’t play it anymore and it’s honestly not doing well at all, the popularity has plummeted.

      Even looking at content updates, the last big patch was way back in December with Rune Blader + fishing/music systems and since then, its just been minor patches with no actually new content.

        Tree of Aavior is better than MS2? Good joke.

    May 23, 2016 at 2:02 pm

    Either Nexon is working really hard on fifth job, or we’re about to meet Gertrude, Silvester, and Gogoat, three more forgotten heroes who are all warriors that use new weapons called the “technically not a bow,” the “we can still call this character a warrior, yes?” and the “Weird horn-things.”

    All three will be gender locked, and really overpowered.

      Or, like they said in the interviews months ago, that they’ll be working on optimizing the game, and maybe having 2D skeleton animation applied to other older bosses (horntail, VL).
      Why on earth is everyone assuming “5th job in 2016” means summer patch? It was never really that feasible. I mean, it’s possible, but it seems like they’d want to hype it up instead of saying nothing. Less talking usually means less content, which lends itself to the theory we’re gonna have a smaller summer patch with lots more under the hood changes, which is fine by me.

      May 23, 2016 at 3:05 pm

      So yes, Eunwol, Gogoat, Gertrude, and Silvester woulds spell “Eggs.”


  6. #5th Job for Winter 2016!
    May 23, 2016 at 3:16 pm

    They will release a new Nova perhaps (seriously, there were 4 cubes, and Angelic Bu(r)ster took one). Or an official thief for the resistance (Xenon is NOT a thief, nor a pirate, just some hybrid stuff). However, there is the possibility of another random job (Kinesis was extremely random) I hope they won’t release another Cygnus “hero” though.

    No matter how cute Mihile/Mikhail is, I still think it was a weird release. If they wanted to tell his story, they just could have released a short video/movie of 10 to 30 minutes, not like they have a lack of fund to do that.

    As for 5th job, it might use the 2D skeleton animation. Which will take time, especially for 30+ jobs. They’ll have to release this for all of them at the same time, unless they want to cause an uproar or something. So IF it comes during the summer update, wow. But do not count on it. Even autumn would be surprising. I expect the drop for winter.

    Oh yeah. And like 4th job, they will surely release a new area with their own bosses, NPCs, and mobs (which includes visual, sound effect, and music). So it’s not like they ONLY had to release 5th job like that in the wild. It has a load of work associated with it.

    • I don't remember what other name I used
      May 26, 2016 at 11:13 am

      I mean, Ultimate skills rolled out aout 3 jobs at a time, and that was fine. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if fifth job did the same.

      I’d actually appreciate it more, since there’d be time between releases to try out the new changes to each individual.

      Plus, fifth job is equal to about three or four sets of ultimate skills. (Not in terms of skill count, but passive skills are generally really easy to code, being basically adding some numbers, and active things are a lot more complex. Ultimate skills gave you three active skills, one of which was basically a reskin of the same buff for every job.)

      So a slow release of fifth job would actually make me really happy.
      Ideal rollout for me would be:
      First update:
      -Explorer fifth jobs for bowmen, Thieves, and Pirates. (including canoneer and duel blade)
      Second update:
      -Explorer warrior & mage.
      third update:
      -Resistence 5ths, including Xenon and Demon.
      -Heroes including Eunwol
      -Anybody else I forgot about.
      -Cygnus knights

      Explorers first because explorers. Kinesis I just stuck with the smallest section.
      Resistance earlyish because my highest level is wild hunter .3.
      Heroes after that, as they have some of the most solid ultimates, and can still hold their own for a while.
      Cygnus last as a peice of self-referencialism, becuase cygnus used to level cap at 120.
      Zero does not need a fifth job for obvious reasons, and Pink bean I don’t care about enough.
      In terms of non-kms jobs, beast tamer has their own levelup system and doesn’t need a fifth job, Zenn and Jett should be updated with the explorers, and Hyato and Kanna should be patched out because they’re laggy and overpowered and make no sense and I don’t like them.

      • EvanAndMir
        June 2, 2016 at 6:33 am

        About the only smart thing you said was about the Cygnus knights. Apart from them, explorers should be LAST “because explorers”, and by “explorers”, I mean “self-entitled little buttholes like yourselves”
        I mean look at that, Resistance third because you have a Wild Hunter, the fk is that?
        No, if they’re going to be brought back from the dead o do some 5th job, it’s going to be THEIR kind of 5th job.
        Second, they said that the reason it’s taking so long is because UNLIKE HYPER SKILLS [because that IDIOT over there keeps calling them Ultimate Skills], they’re doing them all at the same time.
        Also, the fifth and second updates both have 6 people disregarding kinesis.
        A REAL release order puts the REAL heroes before some everyday trash
        First Part: Heroes, Nova, Kinesis, and Zero
        Second: Resistance bc Demon Slayer and Xenon
        Third: Cygnus BC Mihile
        Fourth: Explorers because they’re nothing special
        EX: version specifics should all do their own thing.

    Just a short question Max
    I realised there’s minor lag whenever i load youtube while playing the game recently
    Since the game size has been compressed, does it mean now it requires more internet connectivity to play it?
    Is there option to choose between compress or not to compress the file
    Anyone address this issue to the forum so far?

  8. May 27, 2016 at 7:03 am

    hah the little Zakum.

  9. May 27, 2016 at 6:12 pm

    They should release the Black Magician boss already, and let this game die with some dignity left.

      They’re just regular area bosses so probably only slightly stronger than the monsters in those maps?
