haste.0

A new patch has been released, with job balancing changes (including some additional ones from KMST), boss difficulty changes, and a couple of events (Haste, April Fool’s Day, and Hashtag Maple).

The next patch will be on April 26 for MapleStory’s 15th anniversary!

Here’s the other world selection screen.

Here’s the Maple Update Info Centre video for this patch.

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

Hero

  • Incising Incising: cast action delay has been decreased by 25%
  • combo-death-fault Combo Death Fault: fixed an error where this skill was not affected by changing the ‘Other Characters’ Skill Transparency’ option

  • 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. This change will bring you closer to complete invincibility in certain bosses so we have changed the number of shields, regeneration block time, and shield duration to change it into a skill that you must use specifically when you need it.

  • Holy Magic Shell Holy Magic Shell: now decreases damage taken from % HP attacks by 10%, duration has been decreased from 20 seconds to 15 seconds, shield count has been increased from 10 to 15, time before you can receive the effects of Holy Magic Shell’s shields or heals again has been increased from 30 seconds to 80 seconds

Dual Blade

  • Phantom Blow Phantom Blow: damage has been increased from 275% to 315%

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.

  • Hollow Point Bullets Hollow Point Bullet: attack boost has been increased from 30 to 60
  • Fullmetal Jacket Fullmetal Jacket: damage boost has been removed, now gives 20% final damage

Mikhail

Mikhail is a character whose performance changes based on the usage of Royal Guard. Royal Guard’s difficulty and effects have been slightly lowered to make it easier to use.

  • 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.

  • Weakness Insight Weakness Analysis: critical damage boost has been increased from 8% to 15%
  • Orbital Flame IV Orbital Flame IV: now deals 10% increased damage to regular monsters

  • God of the Sea God of the Sea: fixed an error where this skill could not be linked to Annihilate

Install Maha’s effect was less satisfying than other characters’ 5th job skills so it’s effect has been changed and the damage has been increased to make it more powerful.

  • Level 1: requires 100 Hash Points, basic background, maximum 1 hashtag, choice of 3 expressions
  • Level 2: requires 300 Hash Points, choice of background colour, maximum 3 hashtags, choice of 6 expressions, choice of character pose
  • Level 3: requires 700 Hash Points, choice of background colour or picture, maximum 5 hashtags, choice of 9 expressions, choice of character pose
  • Level 4: requires 1000 Hash Points, choice of background colour or picture, maximum of 7 hashtags (hidden hashtags revealed), choice of 12 expressions, choice of character pose

The total number of Hash Points you collect will be displayed as the number of likes on your chair.

Hashtag Phone

Your Hashtag Phone is how you will customize your chair. Using it, you can change your character’s expression, pose, background, and hashtags/emoticons.

For backgrounds, in addition to basic colours, you can use pictures of places around Maple World! However, you’ll have to go to specific locations and take the picture before you can use them. Here’s a list of all the locations!

For hashtags, the limit is based on your current level. You can also put emoticons in your caption with no limit, but the total number of hashtags + emoticons cannot exceed 14.

How do you get emoticons? Elite Monsters will have a chance to drop Emoticon Boxes, which when opened will give you a random emoticon (there are a total of 18) you can put on your Hashtag Chair. These boxes are tradeable.

Daily Reward

Each day, if you acquire 100 Hash Points, you will complete the daily mission and receive a 20 15th Anniversary Coins Voucher. This can be claimed once per world.

Missions

In addition, for each level your Hashtag Phone reaches, you’ll get prizes. These can be claimed once per world.

  • [Level 1] 4 2x Experience Coupons (15 Minutes)
  • [Level 2] Craftsman’s Cube
  • [Level 3] 150 15th Anniversary Coins Voucher
  • [Level 4] 2 Meister Cubes
  • [Level 4] Hashtag Master Chair (permanent, once per character)

    40% damage on phantom blow instead of another line. I like it but can’t say that I like the fact that the last resort nerf went through.

    ICBM nerf or buff? Not sure if 2000% damage continuous damage for 1 sec deals more than 7000% damage.

    So, are Abyss equipment actually in the RA coin shop, or is it RNG dependent (i.e. from sealed boxes)?

    • Max

      They’re not in the coin shop

          Got some Abyss Recipes from LeBlanc’s shop that appears after you kill a boss randomly, so I think that’s where they added them!

    What’s this? They didn’t nerf I/Ls again? I guess that can be seen as a gain at this point.

    Nerf for bishops as usual ok – why not just delete the class at this point?

    Why nerf bishops again? They already nerf heaven’s door and now this? Might as well nerf the whole skills while you’re at it nexon :l

    So they’re gonna fucking remove the 30% damage buff for paladins…to replace with some shitty 20% final damage? I don’t see how that will make the job any stronger, they’re literally fucking everyone over with ridiculous nerfs.

      Bro 20% final damage is pretty big though

    • June 25, 2018 at 9:31 pm

      Final damage is way better tho.

    Is the cannon shooter [Overburning cannon] change a buff or a nerf? I can’t tell

    • Max

      Final damage is better than regular % damage almost all the time.
