KMST ver. 1.2.063 – Esfera and New Boss Will!

intro_1.0

A new test server patch has been released, with the final content for the Ark update. It has the new area of Arcane River, the Primal Sea, Esfera, as well as a new boss, Spider King Will!

I guess the Black Mage makes his Commanders all get makeovers before they are able to be fought 😛

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here are all the maps of the area, super pretty! Esfera’s maps require 560~640 Arcane Force.

Blood Cage 

Contaminated Sea 

Diffraction 

Mirror Cage 

Soup of Life 

Temple in the Mirror 

Here’s the new background music that was added in this patch.

Boss: Will

Will, the ruler of the Mirror World has finally appeared in the Primal Sea, Esfera. You can meet him while completing the Esfera quests in the Corridor of Diffraction.

You can fight Commander Will in a party of 1~6 people. Currently, there is only a Hard mode. Will’s boss map requires 760 Arcane Force.

I’m not too sure on the boss fight specifics yet but I’ll add them when I find them!

Mechanics

Will has 3 stages. Again, I have no idea how the boss works (for some reason he actually has a blue bar and grey bar underneath his regular HP bar), so I’m just gonna be posting the animations for now.

Randomly, Will will summon Beholders around the map, which will shoot out bullets either straight or diagonally.

Mob Skill (Area Warning)

Randomly, spider legs will shoot down from the sky.

Web

I’m guessing he can summon spider webs which will trap you if you walk into them? Something like that probably.

These three animations are titled Infection, with the last one being labelled After Host Death. Maybe this skill is a status that is inflicted one one person and can spread to others nearby, even after death?

Screen Crack

Of course, what would any boss be without a screen cracking instakill?

It seems that there are special skills that you can use while fighting him that have to do with the Moonlight Gauge. These skills consume a certain amount of Moonlight to transport you to another dimension, allow you to use potions, or remove a spiderweb.

In a video that I saw, the fight begins with Melan telling you that Will needs to be fought in two different worlds at the same time, and you should collect Moonlight to be able to move to the other world. This could be why Will has two additional HP bars, one for each world. You might have to defeat him in both worlds at the same time, so you’ll need to split up your party accordingly and coordinate.

Phase 1

Will’s first phase is sort of normal, he just sorta floats around and attacks you.

Phase 2

Phase 2 adds a couple of new attacks as well as the reflection of Will’s true form below. I’m not sure if this means you’ll get hit twice by every skill or something…

Phase 3

In phase 3, Will goes full spider king and transforms for most of his attacks.

Rewards

Mirror World's Core Gemstone.png

A new 5th job Skill Core has been added. This skill cannot be acquired through Core Gemstones or Core Crafting. You can only receive it by using Mirror World’s Core Gemstones, which can be acquired from Will.

Spider in Mirror Effect

  • Spider in Mirror: Will’s Erda disrupts space, connecting reality with the Mirror World. For a certain period of time, spiders from inside the mirror will appear in reality. (max level: 25)
    • Level 1: Consumes 15% max HP. Disrupt space, dealing 780% damage 12 times on up to 15 enemies. For 48 seconds, a mirror will be summoned. Every few seconds, it will enter an attacking state, during which it will use up to 10 spider legs to deal 182% damage 8 times. If a single enemy is hit by 5 spider legs, the attacking state will immediately end. After the attacking state ends, there is a reactivation cooldown of 5 seconds. Cooldown: 250 seconds.
    • Level 25: Consumes 15% max HP. Disrupt space, dealing 1560% damage 12 times on up to 15 enemies. For 48 seconds, a mirror will appear. Every few seconds, it will enter an attacking state, during which it will summon up to 10 spider legs to deal 364% damage 8 times. If a single enemy is hit by 5 spider legs, the attacking state will immediately end. After the attacking state ends, there is a reactivation cooldown of 5 seconds. Cooldown: 250 seconds.

Will’s Boss Souls and Soul Skills have been added.

Grasp of Destruction Effect

  • Grasp of Destruction Grasp of Destruction: Consumes 300 Soul. Will transforms into a spider and unleashes a devastating attack, dealing 1000%/1200% damage 4 times on up to 15 enemies. Cooldown: 40 seconds. (max level: 2)
  • Spider King Spider King: Consumes 250 Soul. For 120 seconds, summon the Spider King Will, who deals 1800%/2200% damage. Cooldown: 150 seconds. (max level: 2)

Will has also been added to the Soul Collector, with two new illustrations.

“A person’s true worth is revealed through their choices.”

“Wah, what a surprise! I didn’t make this choice!”

New Pocket items have been added. These are part of the Dark Boss set, along with the Rouge Control Machine Mark, Magic Eye Patch, Black Heart, and Dreamy Belt.

I assume that Will will drop them, just like these other equips are dropped by their respective bosses.

  • Cursed Red Grimoire (20 STR, 10 DEX/INT/LUK, 100 HP/MP, 10 attack/magic attack, tradeable until equipped)
  • Cursed Blue Grimoire (20 INT, 10 STR/DEX/LUK, 100 HP/MP, 10 attack/magic attack, tradeable until equipped)
  • Cursed Green Grimoire (20 LUK, 10 STR/DEX/INT, 100 HP/MP, 10 attack/magic attack, tradeable until equipped)
  • Cursed Yellow Grimoire (20 DEX, 10 STR/INT/LUK, 100 HP/MP, 10 attack/magic attack, tradeable until equipped)

The One Who Pierced the Truth.png

A new medal has been added.

  • The One Who Pierced the Truth (15 all stats, 1000 HP/MP, 4 attack/magic attack)

New items have been added.

  • Primal Droplet Stone (dropped from monsters in Esfera)
  • Cobweb Droplet Stone (dropped by Will)
  • Arachno Coin

Arachno Coin Trade.png

Similar to the the Phantasma Coins in Lacheln, in Esfera you’ll have to hunt monsters to collect Primal Droplet Stones and defeat Will for Cobweb Droplet Stones.

You can trade in 10 Primal Stones and 1 Cobweb Stone for 1 Arachno Coin. (Thanks to 세벽 on Inven for the screenshot!)

Arachno Coin Shop.png

You can spend the Arachno Coins in the Arachno Coin Shop. Here you can buy the Arcane Shade weapons for 24 coins each, or the Arcane Shade overalls/hats/shoulders for 16 coins each. (Thanks to 일감 on Inven for the screenshot!)

Maple Achievements

New Achievements have been added.

  • Ultimate Light from the Ultimate Darkness
  • [Area Exploration] Explore Esfera
  • [Will] Stronger Spider (defeat Hard Will 1 time)
  • [Will] Spider Elimination Expert (defeat Hard Will 10 times)

    What makes spider in mirror skill so special that it only comes from that special core gemstone…. Reading the description, it doesn’t sound too great of a skill. If you can’t craft it, then are you suppose to kill Will like 13243243242 times to max it? I mean the concept of getting the boss’ skill is cool, but doesn’t seem worth…

    • Max

    Someone from Reddit posted Will boss raid video that has some interesting finding about Will HP in first stage.

    If you look at Cloud’s comments, it seems that Will HP bar is shown in 2 dimension (in 1 dimension, you’ll see blue and grey bar, while in another dimension, you’ll see purple and grey bar. Grey bar indicates the HP from opposite dimension).

    The trick to reduce Will overall HP is to reduce HP on both dimensions evenly.
    When a spider screen cracking appear, the main HP, purple and blue bar will readjust to maximum HP between blue and purple bar (Let’s say blue bar = 70% and purple bar = 60%, then the main, blue and purple HP bar will readjust to 70%)

      I think they managed to get to Phase 2 recently. But most of them had little to no death counts.

    Nexon went overboard on Will…. the spider portal thing is too fast and too many, it should be slowed down like lucid’s flower rows skill in phase 1. With the beholder skill and bullets the map looks like a mess, not to mention Will pushes you towards them, so it’s easy to get hit 3 times in a row by different skills and instant ko

    Does this mean Maple’s ending? (also no new equipment set rip)

    • Anonymous

      I think it’s unlikely. This is the finish of the arcane river storyline, but there’s no black mage fight yet, and no real closure to the story of the black mage in particular. When the final area drops on main servers we’ll see if they cop out a “you killed the black mage hooray!” but I highly doubt it. Most likely is that we see another set of mid level updates, either 140-180 or maybe even some streamlined early game stuff. Then after that’s taken care of, more 200+ areas, probably sidegrades to arcane river utilizing arcane force, without being direct continuations.

      • Max
        January 21, 2018 at 12:34 am

        No one said this was the end of Arcane River :^)

          January 21, 2018 at 10:06 am

          It’s likely though, since there’s no continuation of the river in the map like the rest of the areas. Unless there’s going to be an extention in that black hole (?) thing

          • Oto
            January 21, 2018 at 1:18 pm

            Maple said, the Black Mage will be waiting at the end of the river. And also, maple also said that the Black Mage isn’t the last boss in the game. Plus, the Ark update subtitle means the prelude of chaos. x3TheAran59 translated for us and pointed out those things for us. The Black Mage will raid Arcane River and that will likely happen in the next update. They most likely are going to increase level cap if they plan to expand Arcane River since Will is a lv 250 boss and if another area is going to be released, the level of the new monsters must be over lv 250 because Esfera mobs are already up to lv 249.

            I got a guess maybe the river could be going down. It seems that Maple does plan to expand it a lot more before this update since the path seems to be going right. Maybe it would go down to save more space for map stuff idk.

    I assume there will be level uncap to 300 (given to the amount of V slot remaining to unlock, it seems like 300 or 350. Also I think there could be more inside that void sphere, as it seems its absorbing everything including the arcane river which is probably why everything in Nameless town is disappearing, it gets dragged to the sea and up to that sphere. I don’t think one could just access it how it is, there must be someone that might be able to cleanse it or dispel darkness from it or else create a crack that the maplers can access later on. Maybe Tana?

  24. January 22, 2018 at 2:45 pm

    I surely been out of the loop for some time,
    The last arcane river map?
    heh….Time to farm more symbols and stuff.

    Somebody must have never been to the towers of Ludi
