KMST ver. 1.2.050 – World Party Quest Changes

Ariant Hunting Competition

A new test server patch has been released! This one includes a few changes to world merged party quests, Bait (same as Cursed Runes), a few ‘fixes’ to Hard Lucid, and a couple of skill changes.

They also added a few more anniversary events and they will be extending them, so it seems there won’t be any new content for May. ūüė¶

Monster Life

NPC Farms have been added.

  • NPC farms are farms owned by various MapleStory NPCs. (duh)
  • Every day, the NPCs and their monsters that appear will be different. You can find them on your Suggested Friends list.

    • Squishy Shoes
    • Sticky Shoes
    • Brilliant Altair Earrings


OTP PC Register

This one doesn’t really affect most people since it’s a KMS-only system, but it’s still pretty useful. Basically, U-OTP is a one-time password system that generates a new password for you every time you want to login and sends it to your phone. It’s been implemented for 5 years I think.

This patch, they added the ability to save PCs to your account, so if you login on a saved PC, you don’t have to go through the OTP system. Up to 3 PCs can be saved to one account.

Cursed Bait

In Chu Chu Island’s Torrential Zone, unused Bait will now activate the¬†Cursed Bait¬†effect.

    • 20 minutes: Stage 4, 100% experience/drop rate reduction

  • If you use Bait, you will receive the¬†Sealed Rune‚Äôs Power¬†buff which prevents you from being affected by Cursed Bait effects for its duration (same as the cooldown before you can use another Bait).

    Curious to know what the notebook, book and letter pages are for :S

    And HLucid’s “error” of healing an absurd amount of health, lol.

      There’s 3 quests, 1 from the OPQ NPC and 2 from the Helios Librarian Wiz that require you to get all 10 pages of the notebook/book/letter. Not sure what the rewards are but I think these are quests that existed before?

        Never knew those existed, can’t find them via google too… :/ Kinda random rewards if that’s the case though.

    What does it mean when Hard Lucid’s hp is lower than 10%, the invincibility pattern duration is decreased slightly? Does it mean that she can’t be damaged under 10% health?

      She’s got a ridiculously high amount of invulnerability when her health goes below 10% health. She starts using a few attacks that make her invincible during, but the invulnerability period lasts well beyond the attack, like a second or two beyond the end of the attack animation, so it makes the fight a lot closer than it needs to be.

    Hey Max, did you ever consider making a brief post about your MapleStory history? I recently have been feeling nostalgic about the early days, and there are many players online who shared their story. It would be a cool read about when you started, your first character, friends/guilds/funny memories etc.

      Haha that would be cool but I don’t know where a lot of my early screenshots are! Maybe if I can somehow find them.

    hey max, what level is the new warrior’s ring from party quest rewards and can it be potentialed?

    • Max
      May 23, 2017 at 8:56 am

      It’s level 70 and I don’t think it can be potentialed since it has no slots. It also expires in 14 days so it’s probably not useful in any way lol.

      May 23, 2017 at 3:05 pm

      Maybe! The summer patch will have to include something big whether its new 5th job skills, a new class, a new blockbuster, or something lol.
