KMST ver. 1.2.066 – Job Balancing!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A new test server patch was released, and it contains a lot of job balancing changes as well as some changes to bosses. It’s also the first time the official patch notes included specific numbers!! I hope this trend continues ūüôā

Also I couldn’t find a good image to show off the patch contents so here’s some random monsters that were just added in this patch. Welcome to the new art style of MapleStory!!

Job Balance Adjustments

The goal of this set of balance adjustments is to unify the effects of certain skills and maintain consistency between them. There are also a few non-numerical adjustments to various skills.

All Jobs

The Weakness skills only applied to a single specific monster, but since that is different from what was expected from the skill names, they have been changed to apply to all monsters that include their names. However, the damage boost was too high so it has been decreased.

  • Pig's Weakness¬†Pig’s Weakness:¬†now applies to all monsters whose names include ‘Pig’, damage boost has been decreased to 10%
  • Stump's Weakness¬†Slime’s Weakness:¬†now applies to all monsters whose names include ‘Slime’, damage boost has been decreased to 10%
  • Stump's Weakness¬†Stump’s Weakness:¬†now applies to all monsters whose names include ‘Stump’, damage boost has been decreased to 10%

While invincible, you expect not to be affected by any skills including those that move your character, so it has been changed so that you will not be affected by those skills.

  • Skills with Invincibility:¬†you will no longer be affected by effects that move your character while Invincible, such as Vellum’s Breath
  • Bind skills:¬†fixed an error where Suu’s lightning pattern after the platforms fall and Damien’s orb pattern while in the air would continue while they were Bound
  • Elda Nova¬†Erda Nova:¬†fixed an error where the Inner Ability ‘+ number of monsters hit’ would affect this skill
  • Spider in Mirror.png¬†Spider in Mirror:¬†fixed an error where sometimes the Mirror World’s Spider would sometimes not be summoned after distorting space

All Thieves

Ready to Die’s second stage’s penalty was less than its effect, so its duration has been decreased.

  • Ready to Die¬†Ready to Die:¬†when entering the 2nd stage, only 50% of the skill’s remaining duration will be applied

All Pirates

  • Loaded Dice¬†Loaded Dice:¬†for jobs without Lucky Dice, the 5th job version of Lucky Dice will no longer be affected by buff duration or cooldown resets

  • Ignite¬†Ignite:¬†fixed an error where this skill did not activate near the monster for monsters like Horntail and Lucid
  • poison-nova¬†Poison Nova:¬†when more than 3 explosions hit the same enemy, the explosions ‘ final damage will be decreased by 50% (damage will not be decreased for 3 or less)

Bishop

There is an inconsistency where certain attacks can be blocked and certain attacks cannot, so this skill can now reduce the damage from % HP attacks without exception.

Bow Master

  • Arrow Platter¬†Arrow Platter:¬†fixed an error where sometimes this skill did not deal damage when using Windows 10

Captain

Some skills have very high % damage so some have been changed to final damage so that they are less affected by equipment growth. For Fusillade, we have not been able to increase its range much due to its special ability so we have divided them into two different versions.

  • claiomh-solais¬†Claiomh Solais:¬†while on cooldown, the additional attack will no longer activate Damage Reflect

Flame Wizard

The 5th job skill Flame Discharge relies heavily on Ignition, so if there are fewer monsters to attack, you lose out on some damage. We have adjusted the effects of some skills so that you can apply Ignition more easily.

Boss Monster Difficulty Changes

Urus Skills Selected

The Skill Select system has been removed from Urus. The system was designed to increase enjoyment of a large party battle by reducing the number of skills used in the map so you could see them all. However, it is more important to reduce the gap between characters based on how many skills they could use.

        Though I am curious; our Rangefinder passive is a %Final Damage increase based on distance, is it? Because all this while I thought it is only %Damage increase.

      They’re not enough, number of lines is low and the cooldown imposed on glory wings makes javelin pretty bad even with the damage buff, you should still deal more damage outside glory wings.

    “Some skills have very high % damage so some have been changed to final damage so that they are less affected by equipment growth”

    Why does it sound like %dmg is more significant than %final dmg? I thought %final dmg is always better? Any idea?

    • Max
      March 23, 2018 at 9:29 am

      No it’s because you can get %dmg and %boss dmg on your equipment which then makes any % damage you have on your skills less effective. But final damage is multiplicative and has no diminishing returns so it’s almost always better.

    bleh having 30 seconds on ready to die is alraidy low, and the need to cast it 2 times is alraidy crappy, basicly with this nerf u get like 12-13 secs to attack with the 2nd phase

    No mercedes buffs, dam. I was hoping they change all our passives to %Final damage and make ignis stacks less of a chore to keep up like making it passive completely. If anything, they should take out the Cooldown on rolling moonsault as I see no reason that it should have one since it does same exact damage as aerial barrage, same with spikes royale losing its cooldown.

    How the hell is Bucc not nerfed further. It’s like they want this class to be stupidly broken OP.

    game is closing down soon it seems, no new content or mechanics and just new jobs/p2w boss/constant tweaking numbers of previous jobs. time to quit!

      Yeah it’s not like they haven’t been focusing content around winter/summer patches for the last 8 years or anything. DEFINITELY time to quit.

    xenon never gets new attack skills since launched in 2012/2013. And now they nerf it further, it’s like they asking dick from me to suck at.

      Kaiser too, not a single new skill since it’s released and got nerf with Dragon Link and Transformation.

    I main Aran so its really cool that they changed how maha’s fury functions. But like, I couldn’t find any videos to this specific skill change. If you can find a video with it, that will be great!

        Thanks so much Max!!!

        Holy!!! Maha’s Fury is WAAY better than the shet effects before that. Love what they did with it. Its much more versatile and gives much more room to mobility and its clearly very powerful. Do you know what the skill info for it is at lv 1? I’m wondering if there is any difference between the one before at lv 1 and this one at lv 1. Nodestones aren’t easy to come by so it would be useful to know what power it packs at lv 1. Thx

          At level 1: 31 sec duration, 6% attack boost, blizzard deals 468% damage 5 times on up to 10 enemies every 3 seconds. 150 sec cooldown

            Thanks!

            Hmm. is that really it? So it seems like they are encouraging you to level it so its nearly twice as powerful than the one before. Since the damage boosts/levels in an accelerating fashion.

            Sounds about right. its like it is a quarter stronger and by the end, its nearly double more powerful.

    this is what this bs game became, balancingstory, since 2012 ~ 2018, it was all about rebalancing

      Yeah because its much better to have 3-4 over powered classes and a bunch of bottom dwellers, yeah that makes SO much more sense good job.

    They should nerfed bucc more like seriously, they’re still broken as fk.. #nerfbucc
    And ready to die halftime nerf is so bad, the risk is so much for the skill yet the gain is so little, stupid gamemaker decision

    Is cannoner’s ICBM buffed or nerfed?

    • Max
      March 24, 2018 at 6:00 pm

      I think it’s a buff? I don’t play CS but now the explosion part of ICBM works just like the cannonball, it hits multiple times over 1 second.

    And Kaiser’s knock back resistance is unchanged, everything about kaiser is unchanged, just with a new useless home sweet home skill, and the Nova’s guardian is still bugged when summon in the corner of the map. ūüėź . I really hope to have some new skills to change some shitty skills like charging with spear, larger version of blade burst to extend the hit box, and the blade fall skill will do dot damage while the swords are on the ground, and what’s the point of wings when you can’t fly like the trailer, and the stupid stone dragon still has the stupid skin, as well as fire breath. Meh

      Totally agree with you. Besides, I want some changes to Dragon Barrage and Dragon Slash. They seem underwhelming.

    You can’t satisfy every job with every job balancing. There are winners and losers irregardless of any skill adjustment Nexon make. The only important thing is that you are playing your favorite job and this is all that matters.

    ‚Äúnow deals damage to enemies using Damage Ignore or Damage Reflect‚ÄĚ

    Wait does that mean it triggers damage reflect

    nexon sucks,, i dont think they even try make decent changes anymore.. while ago we often saw reworks to classes and decent balancing .. right now.. only few classes worth playing.. and what is all this noise about Bucc being so op? bucc is strong .. but dam ever tried play one? its a glass cannon melee that has less defensive and less life than corsair.. its so much work to play it.. dragon take so much energy now.. need to stack hyper for dps 4 times.. if you dont have buff freezers its an awful class… sometimes pplay comfort > damage. corsair .. seems still shit to me.. cannon gets boring.. all items are untradeable basically.. this game really is dying. i wish they finally make decent reworks again as they used to.. and stop making new classes. we have far too many..

    Hi max

    i have some question

    “Deadeye: cooldown has been increased from 25 seconds to 30 seconds, now when attacking less than the maximum number of monsters, the skill will deal 4% increased final damage per monster not hit”

    That’s real?
