KMST ver. 1.2.056 – Morass & Skill Balancing!

20170824175502117_450006240

A week before its release in the official servers, a new patch has arrived to the test servers containing Morass, skill balancing, changes to boss rewards, and more!

Swamp of Memory, Morass

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The new area of Arcane River, the Swamp of Memory, Morass, has been added.

  • Characters who are level 230 or higher and have completed the ‘Forest of Regained Harmony’ quest in Arcana can talk to the Flying Fish in the Four Path Cave to fly to Morass.
  • In Morass, you will meet the girl who caused Arcana to fall into chaos, Tana.

The most interesting thing about Morass is that although it starts off in the Coral Forest, it eventually changes into Trueffet, the royal palace of Kritias. This is because Morass is a swamp that changes based on the memory of those who enter it.

As a survival technique, the Erdas here imitate the appearance of enemies from your own memories. The Flying Fish actually gets some funny dialogue saying it is an Erda that likes being a fish with giant wings, which is really whimsical even in its own eyes (until the player tells it that flying fish exist in Maple World already).

Tana, who passed through Morass just before the player, caused the entire surrounding area to react and take the form of her memories. The Flying Fish explains that it happened due to her immense power over Erda, even stronger than the Black Mage who passed by before her.

There are also some very interesting NPCs such as Arkarium (a young version?) and Hekaton (non-giant monster version!).

The following monsters have been added.

Time to Papulatus

The boss Papulatus’ battle patterns have been renewed.

  • A variety of actions and new attack patterns have been added. New mechanical devices have been installed at the base of the clock tower to disrupt characters.
  • The entry methods are the same as before. You can enter from the base of the clock tower on the lowest floor.
  • To summon Papulatus, you will need a Piece of the Dimensional Crack, which can be received from the NPC Flo in the Passage of Time after completing related quests.
  • Easy Mode and Chaos Mode have been added.
  • You can enter Easy/Normal Mode 1 time per day (the limit is shared between them). You can clear Chaos Mode 1 time per week.
  • The existing Papulatus in Mu Lung Dojo and Cross Hunter will keep the old patterns.

Here’s a video of a player showing off the various mechanics of the fight. I think I figured out most of them but note that the information might be a little incorrect since I haven’t actually fought him yet.

Both Phases

Crane

Along the top of the map, there will be crane machines that will periodically move up and down. If you are caught by them, you will be stunned in place for a certain period of time.

Red LaserBlue LaserPapulatus Laser Explosion

There will be red and blue lasers on two sides of the clock which will rotate in place. If the two lasers touch, they will activate a screen shatter effect (like Arkarium) that one shots everyone. You need to block the lasers with your characters to avoid this.

At the top of the screen, below the timer, there is a red clock that starts ticking down from 3:00 minutes. Once it hits 0, Papulatus will summon falling winding keys (like Magnus meteors). They will fall randomly for 30 seconds. I’m not sure if they both one shot or not but there’s two kinds, yellow and purple.

Phase 1

Papulatus can summon blue clocks on the ground which will explode after a short time and one-shot anyone on it. You need to avoid these horizontally as they will hit people even if they’re on platforms above it.

Time Rift

Papulatus can create time rifts on the ground which will one-shot anyone standing in them until they disappear. You can avoid them by standing on the platforms above them or by moving away from them.

You and Papulatus will have a clock over your heads. If that clock hits 0, your skills will be sealed for a certain period of time. To avoid this, you must defeat the Tick Tocks and Chronos around the map and loot the clocks they drop which can either double or halve the remaining time.

After you defeat the first phase, Papulatus will enter his sleeping mode. During this time, the clock in the middle will be divided into 6 sections with numbers such as 0%/1%/10%/100%. After a certain period of time, Papulatus will reappear and heal himself based on the sum of the remaining sections of the clock. To avoid this, you must defeat the Dark Stars around the map and loot the drops they have to advance the clock 10/30/50 minutes/2/4/9 hours and get rid of the sections by landing on them.

Phase 2

Other World's Papulatus

Papulatus’ second phase uses a projectile attack where he throws a gear at you (don’t think this one shots).

Other World's Papulatus

Papulatus will summon a bunch of Other World’s Papulatus which are weaker and will fly around and attack you.

Papulatus can use a time bomb similar to Urus and Lucid, which will divide the damage among nearby party members.

Papulatus can also forcefully teleport you (like Chaos Von Bon).

New Papulatus related rewards have been added.

  • Papulatus Mark (8 all stats, 1 attack/magic attack, 150 defense, 5 slots, tradeable until equipped, Lv. 145, eye accessory, part of the Boss Accessory set)
  • Papulatus’ Clock Chair
  • Papulatus’ Soul Fragment

  • Ruler of Time.png Ruler of Time: Deals 2000%/2400% damage 1 time on up to 15 enemies. Cooldown: 120 seconds.

Normal: Ruler of dimensions!
Hidden: Yearning…

Boss Reward Reorganization

You will now receive meso rewards based on the difficulty of a boss.

  • When you defeat a boss, you will receive a Powerful Strength Crystal.
  • The Powerful Strength Crystal is a time-limited etc item. Its value is based on the difficulty of the defeated boss and the number of party members who participated. In Reboot World, its value will be even higher.
  • You can sell the Crystal to the Collector in the Free Market to receive mesos equal to its value.
  • The Collector will only buy 60 Crystals per week.
  • Existing potion rewards (except Elixirs and Power Elixirs) and mesos have been removed from boss rewards. The drop rate of Elixirs and Power Elixirs has been adjusted.

A user on Insoya compiled a list of meso rewards for each boss.

  • Easy Zakum: 110k
  • Normal Zakum: 450k
  • Easy Magnus: 450k
  • Easy Papulatus: 450k

These values are if you defeat these bosses in a party of 1. In Reboot World, the amounts will be increased to 3x as much. As the party size increases, the total reward will increase as well but they will then be divided amongst party members.

    Nexon certainly made the game morass with all those boss entry limits and goring their drops.

      This comment made me laugh. Thanks.

    will that damien eye and lotus face be Psokable? I hope so.

      Nope, it’s just like the other boss items that become untradeable after being equipped.

    “Some bosses’ entry/clear limits have been changed”
    What the hell Nexon, this is retarded. I hope these don’t go through, but knowing them it will.

  5. August 24, 2017 at 9:00 pm

    Eww. Boss crystals and the 60/week limit seems to be an attempt to nerf farming bosses for mesos. Also, having meso% will no longer affect the payout.

    August 24, 2017 at 9:39 pm

    Whoo boy, those boss entry limits are garbage.
    I hear the KMS community is raging, so hopefully they change it.

      I hope so too, though backlash didn’t affect the drop rate changes going through.

        Did the prices of nodestones / core gemstones surge after the drop rate % went through?

        • Chow
          August 26, 2017 at 5:51 am

          The recent drop rates change on nodestone only in KMST.
          It seems that they need to consider thoroughly before they release it in KMS.

          I think they were 3~4m each before and now they’re ~7m each.

          The changes did come to KMS at the end of March.

      Even if these changes are in KMS, GMS might not have them. Our version of Demon Avenger and Xenon’s update was better than KMS that limited a crapton of stuff.

      Unlimited I think it was called (for GMS at least, KMS had another name)?

      So yeah, there are chances GMS might cut some of the bad stuff, not all is lost.

    These boss changes better not go through. It’s a move that just makes being a noob at the game even worst than it currently is.

    The boss changes have got to be one of the most ridiculous changes ever. This is going to severely hurt GMS reboot players from making mesos, and the fact that nexon stupidly made it 1 entry a day will hurt a lot of us trying to level mules in zakum/hilla/horntail. This better not make it through test servers or I will be very disappointed and I am sure gms players will be highly affected by this as well. Stupid, stupid change, they better revert it.

      KMS gets pretty much no experience from bosses so that’s not a problem for us but people are still mad lol.

        Ah I forgot that Kms exp is terrible but still, this will totally kill GMS if it comes here.

    Finally Zero is getting buffed after all those nerfs.
    30% damage basically replaced with 25% final damage.

      I think they experimented on her in Kritias but I’m not sure.

    obviously Nexon really has some personal issues with Flame Wizard. It’s like one heavy blow in the head one after another, while Night Walker even gets something new like a delicious shadow servant boost and FD% and the remaining cygnus knights hardly get heavily nerfed in the core.

    is the 25% final damage better than 30% damage on zero?

      25% Final Damage is way better than 30% damage

      Damage% suffers from diminishing returns from either Damage% or Boss%(in cases against bosses, due to the additive nature between Boss Damage% and Damage%)

      Final damage% is a multiplier after other stats are calculated, and it is even a multiplier on other Final damage% sources

    The way they changed mercede’s hair in the art looks cute. But I hate how the ingame hair is nothing like the art.

      It’s an event, and max doesn’t usually cover events in KMST because they change so wildly to official release.

      Ryude sucks in legends return btw, manji moonbeam is still the god combo.

        Mainly I don’t cover events in KMST because usually not a lot of people actually participate in KMST so it’s hard. Also I’d have to screenshot everything myself instead of using the event notices Nexon posts lol.

    Kms have a lot of player so they can do what they want to, but if they do the 1 entry boss to GMS they´ll kill all…

  20. August 26, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    OMG! They showed some love to Pap…I felt that boss needed more attention.
    I like these and yes another map…heh I was expecting the next arcane map to be like 239-249 in monster levels

    Question Max, where did you get the map renders? Did you find them elsewhere or did you manage to get them yourself? If it’s the latter, could you explain how via PM on Southperry?
