KMS ver. 1.2.278 – MapleStory Nova: Splash!

1.2.278

The first patch of the MapleStory Nova update, titled Splash, has been released! It contains the new Spirit Saviour content in Arcana and a few events, including a pre-creation event for the new job Cadena which will be coming on July 6.

MapleStory NOVA Schedule

The MapleStory Nova update will be split over 5 patches:

  • June 22: Splash
  • July 6: Chain of Liberation, Cadena
  • July 20: History, Another Story
  • August 10: ?
  • August 31: ?

Here’s the MapleStory update info centre video for this patch.

Spirit Saviour

Spirit Saviour Map

Spirit Saviour is a new type of content in Arcane River’s Arcana area where you must save as many trapped Stone Spirits as possible while avoiding multiple monsters who will interfere with you in a limited amount of time.

Characters who have completed the “Forest of Regained Harmony” quest can enter Spirit Saviour by talking to the Escaped Stone Spirit in the Spirit’s Tree map.

Spirit Saviour x1

After attacking and destroying a trap holding a Stone Spirit, press the Spacebar key and the spirit will begin to accompany you. If you bring the Stone Spirit to the shining spot at the centre of the map safely, you will receive Rescue Points based on the number of spirits with you (up to 5 at one time).

  • 1 spirit: 200 points
  • 2 spirits: 500 points
  • 3 spirits: 1000 points
  • 4 spirits: 1500 points
  • 5 spirits: 2500 points

spirits-remains-fly

You will have a certain Armor. If you are hit by the Spirit Remains that spawn occasionally, this level will decrease and if it hits 0, you will instantly fail and the content will end.

deadly-venom-spirit-attack-1

In addition, as soon as you have a spirit accompanying you, a Poison Spirit will spawn and chase you across the map. If it hits you, you will instantly lose all Stone Spirits accompanying you. The more spirits you have with you, the faster and bigger the Poison Spirit will get.

When the time limit is over or your Armor hits 0, the content will end. After the content ends, you will acquire 1 Spirit Coin per 1000 Rescue Points. You can trade 3 Spirit Coins for 1 Arcane Symbol: Arcana.

You can enter Spirit Saviour up to 3 times per day. You can acquire up to 30 Spirit Coins per day. If you play in a Premium PC Room on a weekend, you will receive 30% additional Rescue Points and your daily limit of Spirit Coins is increased to 40.

      the only “info” is a name. The main page update is just changed from the teaser trailer for the whole summer patch to be more of a teaser for cadena.

      The july 20th patch is named “History, another story” though.

    ‘When an Arcane Symbol is dropped, it will now only be visible to the user who has dealt the most damage to the monster who dropped it.’

    I know many solo trains but there are players who might want to party. With these kind of change I don’t think someone wants to party with a job that can kill the map very fast such as Luminous. The Luminous would get most of the drops in this example.

    ‘After clearing a boss, the dungeon’s time limit will now be changed to 5 minutes.’

    I guess they meant the boss remaining timer will change into 5 minutes after you killed the boss, so you got 5 minutes max to loot all the drops. What is the use of this change?
    Most of the bosses are instanced except a few unless it is different in KMS?

      In KMS there are limits to the amounts of players that can have an instance of, say, Zakum, open at once. And if you play during KST primetime you can end up sitting there mashing to get into zakum for 15-20 minutes, and people will sit in the room for an exceptional amount of time. with 30 channels it’s significantly less of an issue than it used to be, but it’s still an issue. This is just a tiny change to make things better.

        Oh I see thanks for the reply. Then we have that in GMS too but it’s not as crowded I guess. I remember a full instanced channel at Zakum and Gollux before.
