    Afterimage Shot’s cooldown increase should actually be green. According to Insoya, due to its passive effect it’s actually a buff rather than a nerf.

    • Max
      April 20, 2017 at 10:45 pm

      Yeah I was debating putting it in green since Afterimage Shot is used mainly for its effect while on cooldown but I thought it would be weird/inconsistent with regular skill changes lol.

      • Anonymous
        April 20, 2017 at 10:57 pm

        Maybe you could put an explanation in parentheses explaining it? Like “Note that this is a buff because of the passive effect benefitting from the cooldown increase is more the nerf to the active effect” or something? Or what you just said about the passive effect being the main point of the skill.

  6. April 20, 2017 at 10:45 pm

    Hey Max, you marked the Breath of Earth changes for Evan in red (I assume to denote a nerf) but I think it’s actually a buff, unless I’m misinterpreting it.

    Here’s my explanation: http://i.imgur.com/fx7DnTy.png

    • Max
      April 20, 2017 at 10:49 pm

      Oh yeah, rereading the skill description, it seems that the skill now states ‘except for 35% of the skill’s damage, the damage will be divided by the number of monsters attacked’ so it would be a buff! Fixed.

    • Ray
      April 22, 2017 at 8:44 pm

      “Dragon Breath – Wind Bonus Chance: damage boost has been increased from 40%p → 85%p” I wonder if this means instead of Wind Breath being stronger than Dragon Breath when enemies’ hp are below 35%, it will be 85% now ? If so, does that mean our dps will be better since we get to use it more, but I’m guessing the cooldown will still stay the same ?

      ” Dragon Breath: Swift of Wind’s damage boost has been increased from 130%p → 160%p” Will this mean anything beside better mobbing because it only increases %dmg for Wind Flash ?

    The Lucky item will be included in every set for which you are already wearing 3 or more equipment from.
    For example, if you are wearing 3 Root Abyss set items, 3 Absolabs set items, and 2 Meister set items, the Lucky item you equip will be included in the Root Abyss and Absolabs set but not the Meister set.

    Does this mean the lucky item will apply to sets that don’t include hats? (e.g. If I wear Chaos Vellum Hat, can I get set bonuses from equips that don’t require hats as long as I have 3 or more of them?

    • Max
      April 21, 2017 at 1:45 pm

      I’m not 100% sure because I don’t have any Lucky items to test with, but I think it’s the same as before, the set will have to include the Lucky item’s type (so no, the Chaos Vellum Hat would only work with sets that have hats).

  8. Kaiji
    April 20, 2017 at 11:45 pm

    The changes to lucky item. Does it mean that the chaos vellum helmet is included in meister set?

    • Max
      April 21, 2017 at 1:47 pm

      I’m not 100% sure but I don’t think so, because the Meister set doesn’t have a ‘hat’ item.

    About the Demon markings on the bottom of the page; Demons can choose from four or five different markings when creating their character. Does the cash item let you choose which one you can get or is it random? Or does KMS only have one style?

      It just takes away/brings back the one you chose upon creation.

          April 22, 2017 at 9:57 pm

          I copied over my Demon to KMST and it for some reason made my Demon Marking to the ‘blank’ one. I used the Demon Mark Shift and it just did nothing (I guess it ‘took it off) and then I used it again and it didn’t give me any options (I assume it just ‘put it back’). I’ll try tomorrow by creating a new Demon with an actual marking.

      KMS has sources of non-expiration tradeable souls. I don’t recall details (Max could probably fill in on that), but I think if you search with Owl of Minerva in GMS, we actually already have them – just not released.

      I think %damage gets worse as you get more %damage/%boss damage while % final damage is always good so it might be a buff?

        it would be better obviously, but atm u can count it as 10% avarage crit dmg over time, but still we got a pretty nice buff this time c:

          April 21, 2017 at 1:29 pm

          oh w8 look closely in your prime skill, it has a passive 8% crit dmg wich will be 20%, so the 20% will be static, you could say its 20-30% crit dmg in total 25% over time, thats pretty sick

    As a player of GMS, I am equipping Bounty Legend Set with a ring and Eyes but also Scarlet Ring (Lucky Item). That means I am wearing two pieces of equips excluding Scarlet. It currently fits into Bounty Legend set because it is same level Req. as Superior Gollux Set, but a higher set ID. Reading this change, I am worried to see I might actually lose my 3rd set effect, so losing +10%Damage bonus and making Scarlet Ring useless because I already have full set of Superior Gollux. Do you know if I really need to get 3 pieces of Bounty Legend Set or is it not a necessity in that case, knowing I have full superior gollux set with double pendants, ring and earrings (not wearing gollux belt) ?

      That’s bumbertyr. His position at Nexon is a QA for Lawbreakers, not for Maplestory. As far as everything he writes on the official forum goes, unless otherwise stated he’s just a normal user, not speaking officially.

      I’m a forum mod. I link to Orange Mushroom all the time. It’s the best way to get an English translation on upcoming features. But anything official will typically be put in a post of its own on the main site or explicitly stated by Arwoo/OneLetter/SavageAce/etc.
