Today’s patch contains all of the changes that I talked about in the previous test server update as well as a few events. The longest running one will end on April 26 so we can expect the 14th anniversary patch to hit that day!

World Select (Sunday Maple)

Here’s the other world selection screen for this patch.

Here’s the MapleStory Update Info Centre video for this patch.

When you leave the Mind and Body Training Centre, you will now receive another Entry Charm based on the remaining time on your original Charm.

Mu Gong's Gloves

All gloves acquired from Mu Lung Dojo have been changed to Lucky Items, meaning they can count towards any set effect. This will also apply to gloves that you currently have.

Game Related

The item drop rate increase formula has been changed.

  • Item drop rate increasing effects will now be applied at the same time instead of being applied in a certain order based on the source’s type.
  • For some items, quest items, and event items, drop rate increasing effects will now only be partially applied.
  • The drop rate of Core Gemstones has been increased.
  • The effects of Union’s Luck and Wealth Acquisition Elixirs have been increased.
    • Union’s Luck: 30% item drop rate → 50% item drop rate
    • Wealth Acquisition Elixir: 10% item and meso drop rate → 20% item and meso drop rate

When Star Force Enhancement cost discount events and MVP/PC Room discounts are applied at the same time, the pre-discount cost will now show the original cost.

  • This change was made to reduce confusion as previously, the pre-discount cost would show the event-discounted price. The discounted price will be calculated the same as before, the event discount then the MVP/PC Room discount.

In Floors 2~8 of The SEED, monsters will no longer drop mesos.

An error where you could enter the boss Von Leon even if your party members were on another channel has been fixed.

    so… no Nodestone drop rate raised, huh? 😦

    i guess the medals for kerning orbis and whatever are lame.

    i think maybe monster life should be deleted. no one use it.

    • Max
      March 29, 2017 at 11:38 pm

      The drop rate of Core Gemstones (Nodestones) was increased!

      • PirateIzzy
        March 30, 2017 at 1:00 am

        Too bad they didn’t increase the drop rate of symbols.

        • March 30, 2017 at 11:21 am

          I mean, who grinds symbols from normal mobs anyway? Vanishing Journey has dailies, then there’s Muto PQ and Dream Breaker, none of which are affected by drop rate.

    “Hero’s Will: now gives immunity to status conditions for 3 seconds after using the skill.”

    Does this also apply to its variants (Nova Temperance, Clear Mind, Will of Erda)?

    • Max
      March 29, 2017 at 11:41 pm

      Just checked and yep, it applies to all of those except Clear Mind! I’ll add them in to the post.

    • 1k
      March 30, 2017 at 2:07 am

      Actually, the temporary immunity to status seems to be an unlisted attribute in GMS, though i’m not sure if its 3 seconds or just 1 like Sniper’s Pain killer.


      Tested with Hero’s will, Pain killer (states in description of skill), and will of erda.

      • Max
        March 30, 2017 at 10:39 am

        I looked at the skill data and yeah, it looks like they just increased the duration from 1->3 seconds. But the skill description never mentioned this 1 second duration so I just translated the change as a new feature!

      Why Demon job don’t have this skill? Nexon change the resistance rate format too

    Any new details about drop rate changes? It’ll be like IED after all?

    • Max
      March 30, 2017 at 10:42 am

      I just read a post on Insoya saying he had 150% drop rate before the patch (100% from 5 equips, 20% from Ability, 20% from Decent HS, and 10% from the Wealth Potion) and he got 7-8 Core Gemstones per hour (tested over 10 hours). Then he did this again after the patch with 160% drop rate (same items, just the Wealth Potion’s boosted effect) and he only got 4-5 Core Gemstones per hour (over 10 hours). It looks like it was a net decrease? Drop rate testing is pretty hard without a lot of sample data so he might’ve just been unlucky.

      • Anonymous
        March 31, 2017 at 6:14 am

        That sucks. And Nexon said core gemstone drop rates were increased? What a joke!

      • Ryan
        April 8, 2017 at 4:54 am

        Hm… i calculated that the 160% if applied like IED would be 83.2% instead. That means 2.6x drop became 1.8 times. Assuming he had 2.5 times with 7-8 nodestones, that means 0% = 2.8-3.2 per hour. And 4-5 nodestones at 1.83 times marks is 2.18-2.73 at 0%. This seems to be lower than before even if we apply IED formula. However, if he was farming during 2x drop/exp or used a coupon/familiar then i believe the nodestone drop rate at 0% would be higher. Assuming 2x event/familiar, he would have 5x meaning 1.4-1.6 per hour and after the changes, 2.66x (might be less due to dimishing returns) resulting in 1.5-1.9 nodestones per hour.
        If he farmed nodestones without 2x, then ya… idk what “increasing” base nodestone drop meant haha.

    Hi Max,
    the skills changes to Mercedes you wrote are available in many patches ago
    so i don’t think it is new. . .

    • Max
      March 31, 2017 at 11:39 am

      I just checked my pre-patch version of KMS and these things were not mentioned in the skill descriptions. Maybe it was some sort of hidden feature lol?
