KMS ver. 1.2.300 – MapleStory: Black Mage – Prelude of War!

The second patch of the MapleStory: Black Mage update has been released! The Prelude of War includes the first area of Tenebris, Moonbridge. Along with it, many new Alliance Missions, Alliance Skills, and the Alliance Supply Shop have been added.

Edit: On July 7, a new patch was released for ver. 1.2.301, with a new temporary world called Burning! It’s a new type of world meant to help lessen server stress on the most populated worlds. More information about it is located at the end of the post.

Tenebris Expedition

Flame of Desire.png

The Flame of Desire has been activated. At the Flame of Desire in the Outpost, you can deliver your collected Desire to the Goddess Statues. Based on the amount of Desire collected within the statues, the Journey of Destiny will progress.

The Journey of Destiny is shared between all players in every world. You can see its progress in the appearance of the Goddess Statues as well as a special UI at the top of your screen.

As the Journey of Destiny progresses and the Goddess Statues are completed, the story of the Tenebris area will proceed to the next stage and new regions as well as Alliance ranks will become unlocked. However, you cannot enter regions from previous stages.

Alliance Medal

For every 100 Desire you deliver to the Flame, you’ll receive 1 Alliance Medal. For every 10,000 Desire you deliver to the Flame, you’ll receive an additional 10 Alliance Medals.

You can use your Alliance Medals to increase your Alliance rank or purchase items in the Alliance Supply Shop.

Desire

The daily limit for Desire has been increased from 10,000 to 50,000!

Alliance Rank

The Alliance ranks have been added. As the Journey of Destiny progresses, new Alliance ranks will be opened.

The Alliance rank has a total of 13 ranks: Warrior, Guardian I~IV, Hero I~IV, and Legend I~IV. The highest rank that can be achieved during this patch will be Guardian IV.

You can speak to Nineheart at the Outpost to increase your Alliance rank by giving him Alliance Medals. As your rank increases, you’ll be able to access new Alliance skills and Alliance Supply Shop items. 

  • Warrior → Guardian I: 300 Alliance Medals
  • Guardian I → Guardian II: 150 Alliance Medals
  • Guardian II → Guardian III: 150 Alliance Medals
  • Guardian III → Guardian IV: 600 Alliance Medals
  • Guardian IV → Hero 1: 600 Alliance Medals
  • Hero 1 → Hero 2: 300 Alliance Medals
  • Hero 2 → Hero 3: 450 Alliance Medals
  • Hero 3 → Hero 4: 1200 Alliance Medals

All of these systems (Alliance rank/skills/supply shop) will only be available until the Black Mage is defeated.

When you reach certain ranks, you’ll receive special prizes from the Empress. You can only receive these items once per world.

Alliance Skills

Alliance skills have been added. Alliance Skills are skills that increase your characters’ stats and help in your adventures.

The Alliance skills are separated into [Content Skills], [Ability Skills], and [Goddess Statue Skills]. Based on the type of skill, the methods of acquiring them and levelling them up are different.

  • Content Skills: when your Alliance rank is increased, you will automatically unlock these skills, which you can then level up using skill points given based on your rank.
  • Ability Skills: when your Alliance rank is increased, you can talk to Grendel to automatically learn and level up these skills.
  • Goddess Statue Skills: when the Journey of Destiny progresses past a certain stage and each Goddess Statue is completed, you can talk to Grendel to automatically learn these skills.

Based on your current Alliance rank, you can talk to Grendel at the Outpost to acquire skill points and Ability skills. Certain Content Skills will require previous skills to reach a certain level. You can see these required relationships in the Alliance Skill UI.

Alliance Skills can be reset once per day for each rank. The skills that can be learned are as follows.

Based on the world’s progress of the Journey of Destiny, Tenebris’ story will proceed gradually. As you can see above, the area’s maps will be revealed over time, so you’ll have to work together and collect enough Desire to unlock everything.

In the Tenebris area, special Expedition Missions will become available. Completing them will reward you with the Alliance Loot, which gives items such as Desire, mesos, and Core Gemstones.

In the Tenebris area’s maps, up to 10 characters can enter the same instance of a map. The monsters will be individually assigned, so you will only be able to see and hunt your own monsters. However, Elite Bosses will appear for all characters, but will not summon any Elite Monsters and the Bonus Stage will not apply.

In the Tenebris area’s maps, unlike regular maps, there will be no Runes, flowers/veins, or Burning Fields and no items will be dropped. However, you will be able to gain a lot of additional experience from various exclusive gimmicks.

In the Tenebris area’s maps, you will have a 1 hour time limit and after that time is up, you will no longer gain any experience from monsters. The time limit will reset every day at midnight.

Giant Monster

While fighting the giant monster, its powerful aura of fear will impose a 5 minute time limit on you. The time limit will also be decreased if you are hit by the monster’s attacks. However, if you are able to persist in battle for more than a certain amount of time, you’ll be able to go inside the monster and deal more damage.

The additional missions can be the following:

  • Air Flow Changes Observation: Defeating Monsters
    • While hunting in Moonbridge, a strange fog will occasionally cover the map that allows you to fly around. You must defeat 1,000 monsters while this fog is active.
  • Gray Dust
    • While hunting in Moonbridge, all monsters on the map will occasionally be replaced by Gray Dust. You must defeat 200 Gray Dust monsters.
  • Expedition Sign Charging
    • While hunting in Moonbridge, you will occasionally be asked to charge up the Signs using Magic Stones dropped by monsters. There are 4 Signs in the map and each can be charged up to 5 times. The progress is shared by all characters in the same map.
  • Pathfinder
    • While hunting in Moonbridge, you will occasionally be asked to charge up the Signs using Magic Stones dropped by monsters. After the short time limit ends, you will receive a Pathfinder buff based on the minimum charge level of all the Signs in the map (e.g. if 3 were charged 5 times and 1 was charged 4 times, you’d receive the ‘charged 4’ buff). You must receive the Pathfinder stage 3 or higher buff 3 times.
  • Giant Monster’s Attack Pattern Observation
    • While hunting in Moonbridge, the Giant Monster will occasionally attack using a giant spider leg around the map. You must observe this attack (be in the map while it happens) 60 times.

  • Battle in the Fog
    • While hunting in Moonbridge, you must defeat 10 Elite Monsters.
  • Giant Monster’s Aura
    • While hunting in Moonbridge, the Giant Monster’s aura of fear will occasionally appear in a map. While it is active, you have 3 minutes to defeat all of the fear monsters that are spawned. If you can defeat all of them in time, you’ll receive the Overcoming Fear buff which stacks up to 5 times. You need to stack the buff 3 times for this mission.
  • Surging Fear
    • While hunting in Moonbridge, the Giant Monster’s aura of fear will occasionally appear in a map. While it is active, you have 3 minutes to defeat all of the fear monsters that are spawned. You must defeat 50 fear monsters.
  • Giant Monster Internal Strike
    • You can enter the fight against the Giant Monster when you have this mission active. You are given 5 minutes to fight against it, but every time you are hit by one of its attacks, the timer will be decreased by a few seconds. If you are able to survive against the monster for about 3 minutes, Cygnus will lead you inside to its Core. For this mission, you must deal a certain amount of damage to the Core.

Here’s all the illustrations for Moonbridge.

Here’s all of the maps for the area! In actuality, the maps with monsters on them are copied 20 times. You can see on the world map the areas are separated into ‘rest map’ then a cloudy area (which has 6-8 maps in game).

In each rest map, you’ll be able to choose which map you would like to go to, and each one will show the number of other characters currently in that map (maximum of 10 people).

Union's Luck

Item drop rate increasing items’ logic has been changed.

  • Due to a variety of drop rate increasing potential, consumables, and skills that sometimes share a maximum limit and sometimes do not, the logic will be organized to be easier to understand.
    • Potential: maximum limit of 300% (unchanged)
    • Skills/Ability/Premium PC Room Benefit/Reboot Additional Drop Rate/Wealth Acquisition Potion: no limit
    • Consumables (other than Wealth Acquisition Potions)/Events: maximum limit of 100% (shared between both)

Urus’ Golden Time has been changed to 10:00 AM ~ 10:00 PM for the summer.

In order to improve game server performance, certain achievements have been temporarily restricted.

  • Combo Kill related achievements
  • Meso acquiring related achievements
  • Ring acquiring related achievements

The Character Creation Restriction function has been added.

  • To provide stable service, character creation can be temporarily restricted if the number of users in one world exceeds the available limit.
  • If a world’s character creation is restricted and you don’t have any characters in that world, you will not be able to create any new characters there.
  • Starting from July 5, Scania, Luna, and Elysium will have character creation restricted for anyone who does not already have a character there.

The Channel User Restriction function has been added.

  • To provide stable service, the number of people that can join each channel has been limited.
  • Since each channel will have a different number of users, you should try to join another if you receive the message that one is blocked.

If you are currently logged into a world, you will not be restricted if you switch to another character in the same world.

The following errors have been fixed.

  • Fixed an error where for Tera Burning characters, completing the Call of the Erda quest without completing the prequests would cause the Lost Memory Priest to disappear, stopping progress from other quests.

Burning World

Burning World

Burning World is a new type of world that is temporary! It was created to help lessen the load on the servers for the most populated servers, Scania, Luna, and Elysium.

Burning world will allow character creation and growth from July 7 to September 20. It will stay open from July 7 to October 17, after which all information and characters in the world will be deleted.

What’s the point you ask? Well, first of all, you’ll be able to create up to two Mega Burning characters in this world (burning up to level 130). Also, if you have not already made your Tera Burning character (or you delete your existing one), you can also make it in this world.

Secondly, after August 20, you will no longer be able to grow your characters there but you can transfer them to Scania, Luna, or Elysium. Note that you can only transfer up to 3 characters out of the world.

However, if you don’t transfer them before October 17, they will be deleted along with the world.

Burning Skill

Burning World has special benefits for all characters in the world. The first is a special passive skill given upon character creation, called Burning. This skill gives:

  • 1.5x experience rate
  • 3x meso rate
  • 50 attack/magic attack
  • 30% damage to regular monsters
  • 30% damage to boss monsters
  • 30% critical rate
  • 30% critical damage

Mega Burning

The second benefit is (as mentioned before) that you can create up to 2 Mega Burning characters. They will receive all of the same benefits and rewards that the regular Mega Burning event gives.

Mega Burning Items

The third benefit is for Mega Burning characters created in this world. They will receive the BURNING medal (5 all stats, 250 HP/MP, 1 attack/magic attack), automatically expanded inventory slots to 56, a 10th Anniversary White Armor Set Box, and a 30 Day Teleport World Map.

Mega Burning Level Up Items

The fourth benefit is for Mega Burning characters created in this world. They will receive the Root Abyss Set Boxwhich gives the Root Abyss set (hat, top, and bot) as well as the Expiring Fafnir Weapon Box. 

Unlike the Tera Burning rewards, the Root Abyss armor will not expire, while the weapon will last for 60 days instead of 30 days.

Here’s the entire list of what items you’ll receive and at which levels.

  • Level 130: Root Abyss Set Box
  • Level 140: Condensed Power Crystal
  • Level 150: Pendant of the Spirit (7 Days)
  • Level 160: Aquatic Letter Eye Accessory
  • Level 170: 2 Craftsman’s Cubes
  • Level 175: 2 Miracle Circulators
  • Level 180: Dea Sidus Earrings
  • Level 185: 100% Epic Potential Scroll
  • Level 190: Powerful Rebirth Flame
  • Level 200: 20 Core Gemstones and 30 Selective Arcane Symbol Vouchers

Character World Leap

The fifth and final benefit of Burning world is the ability to World Leap!

After September 20, you will no longer be able to level up in Burning World, but you will be able to move your characters to Scania, Luna, or Elysium. Up to 3 characters level 130 or higher can be moved. If you don’t move your characters before the final day of Burning world, they will be deleted!

While in Burning World, your characters will have certain limitations.

  • Cash Shop: allowed (certain items cannot be bought or used, but they will be once you move to Scania, Luna, or Elysium)
  • Item Trading: allowed
  • Auction House: allowed
  • Storage: allowed
  • World Merged Party Quest: allowed
  • Link Skills: cannot be transferred to other characters (once you move to Scania, Luna, or Elysium, you will be able to use them normally)
  • Meso Market: not allowed (once you move to Scania, Luna, or Elysium, you will be able to use it normally)
  • Maple Union: not allowed (once you move to Scania, Luna, or Elysium, you will be able to use it normally)
  • Monster Collection: not allowed (once you move to Scania, Luna, or Elysium, you will be able to use it normally)

Event Related

If your main characters are not in Scania, Luna, or Elysium, you won’t feel left out of getting two free Mega Burning characters!

From July 7 to July 18, you will receive 2 Mega Burning Boosters in Bera, Zenith, Croa, Union, Enosis, Red, Aurora, Arcane, Nova, Reboot, and Reboot 2. These items can be traded through storage and when used on a character, you will be able to receive 2 extra levels per level up until level 130 for 30 days.

    • Max
      July 10, 2018 at 5:36 pm

      Your skills and rank are shared (assuming within the world but I don’t have characters in other worlds). But each character gets their own supply shop limits and Desire limit/Alliance Medals.

    However, you cannot enter regions from previous stages.

    so if we compete Moonbridge we can no longer return to it? And you don’t get to keep the skills either..

      That’s the alliance skill you get in the warrior tab, you can choose to get desire while AFKing (blue glow) or exp (green glow).

    • Max
      July 5, 2018 at 9:18 pm

      Yeah above is correct, it’s the Alliance’s Origin skill. When you use it you can choose between getting Desire or experience.

    Do you know how to actually upgrade your alliance rank? I’m hanging on to my coins, but the option neinhart has seems to just refer me back to the menu.

    • Max
      July 5, 2018 at 9:18 pm

      ATM the highest rank unlocked is Warrior (the base rank). You won’t be able to upgrade until the Journey of Destiny progresses (each orb filled up will unlock a new rank).

    Do you know how the Tenebris Expedition Ring will work in Reboot? Will we get a fully upgraded ring already given that we cannot use scrolls? Or will we just get the base ring?

    Also, I saw that it says you only get one Expedition Ring Enhancement Scroll after you become Guardian IV, how do you get the other 2?

    • Anonymous
      July 6, 2018 at 12:17 am

      Since the rewards are only detailing the guardian level, I imagine with the other patches since we’ll have the other ranks, we’ll be able to see the other rewards as well. My best guess is guardian 4 hero 4 and legend will reward the scrolls.

    • Max
      July 6, 2018 at 4:18 pm

      There are pre-scrolled versions in the data so I assume Reboot will get those. Like the above person said, these are just the Guardian rank rewards since that’s the highest we can get this patch, the other scrolls will most likely be given out with the higher ranks.

    MAX, for Sunday maple effect, it’s 2x Desire gain, not limit, the limit doesn’t increase, the desire you gained from whichever sources get doubled instead, as the korean stated “gaining rate?”

    July 12, 2018 at 10:59 am

    Max, trying to understand drop limits, kind of confusing me, 300% from potentials is the limit – means there’s still improvement if i have right now 240%(3-40% items) and i’ll go for 3 more (6 – 40% + 3-20% so 300% total) and I couldnt find where greed pend passive drop go in, u said skills, inner ability has no limit, what about items?
