KMST ver. 1.2.079 – Winter Class Balancing

KMST ver. 1.2.079

Okay so I was wrong, this test server patch (which will be coming to the official servers next week) is not the first one for the winter update. That will actually be on December 27 (and I think even that will be a ‘pre-update’ instead of an actual update). Instead, have some job balancing!

Class Balancing Adjustments

The goal of these balance adjustments is to adjust skills where the skill concepts and performance do not match or their identities are weak. We also want to increase consistency and emphasize certain class characteristics.

As a result, certain classes’ Double Jump skills have a longer action delay than others have been adjusted and Buff Freezers will apply to more summons. In the case of summons, normally, they are not protected by Buff Freezers but when they are core skills to a class, it becomes a disadvantage compared to other classes and we would like to have them apply.

All Classes

Several different skills that create additional attacks have been added and their names are quite varied, so it was difficult to understand which were Final Attack type skills. They will now state in the skill descriptions if they are.

  • Final Attack skills: skills that are considered Final Attack skills will now display that attribute in their skill descriptions
  • Erda Shower Erda Shower: the skill effect will now remain where the skill was cast

All Warriors

  • Aura Weapon Aura Weapon: fixed an error where Aura Weapon’s wave’s damage and number of hits were not affected by +damage/+number of hit boosts to the attacking skill that activated the wave

All Archers

Guided Arrow was very inconvenient to use every 30 seconds, so we have increased both its duration and cooldown to reduce tediousness while maintaining its performance.

  • Guided Arrow Guided Arrow: duration has been increased from 30 to 60 seconds, cooldown has been increased from 30 to 60 seconds, number of attacks has been increased from 45 to 90

All Pirates

Overdrive was not good enough to be worth the penalty after using it, so it was less useful than other classes’ skills. By increasing the skill’s attack boost, we hope to increase its value.

  • Overdrive Overdrive: attack boost has been increased from 50% to 70%

Adventurer Warriors

  • blitz-shield Blitz Shield: fixed an error where the shield could not be manually exploded if you changed channels after using it

Hero

  • Combo Attack Combo Attack: you can now right-click the skill icon in the skill window to turn the Combo effect on/off, the number of Combo counters can now be checked in the buff section in the top right part of the window
  • Sword of Burning Soul Sword of Burning Soul: fixed status’ range has been increased, can now be saved using Buff Freezers

Paladin

We have made it easier to use Grand Cross, which was difficult to use because of range.

  • Paladin Expert Paladin Expert: critical damage boost has been increased from 8% to 15%
  • Grand Cross Grand Cross: you can now move while casting this skill, damage reduction has been changed to 50% at all levels, cooldown has been decreased from 180 seconds to 150 seconds, attack range before the cross grows in size has been increased by 20%, time before the cross grows has been decreased

Dark Knight

  • Pierce Cyclone Pierce Cyclone: final attack’s damage has been increased from 2400% to 3000%, number of hits has been increased from 12 to 15, the final attack can now activate Aura Weapon’s wave

Adventurer Magicians

  • unstable-memorize Unstable Memorize: when a skill that has no SP invested in it is used, you will now perform a special action

Archmage (F/P)

  • Slime Virus Slime Virus: fixed an error where the skill transparency settings of other characters did not apply to this skill
  • Flame Haze Flame Haze: fixed an error where the skill transparency settings of other characters did not apply to this skill

  • Blizzard Blizzard: fixed an error where the blizzard would fall on enemies even when the skill was not on cooldown
  • Freezing Breath Freezing Breath: fixed an error where the skill transparency settings of other characters did not apply to this skill
  • Spirit of Snow Spirit of Snow: damage has been increased from 600% to 700%, damage when hitting 1 enemy has been increased from 1000% to 1400%, number of enemies hit has been increased from 8 to 10
  • Elemental Adapting (IL) Elemental Adapting (I/L): fixed an error where the shield would remain after defending against a status attack

Bishop

Their main skill Big Bang’s attack range was quite narrow, so they had a big disadvantage while hunting, even considering Holy Symbol. It’s range was greatly increased. In addition, Heaven’s Door and Ethereal Form, which can be considered buffs in a way, will now be available to use in Vengeance of Angel state, to increase convenience.

  • Heal Heal: fixed an error where attacks hitting enemies affected by Heal’s debuff would have their damage increased instead of their final damage
  • Big Bang Big Bang: attack range has been increased by 68%
  • Vengeance of Angel Vengeance of Angel: you can now use Heaven’s Door and Ethereal Form while in this state

  • Peacemaker Peacemaker: damage has been increased from 600% to 700%, divine light’s damage has been increased from 800% to 1000%

Bowmaster

Poison Arrows were much less useful than Magic Arrows and Drain Arrows. By giving them their own role, it makes the choice of which arrow to use more meaningful.

  • Quiver Cartridge Quiver Cartridge: attacking an enemy that was poisoned by Poison Arrows will increase your critical damage by 4%
  • Advanced Quiver Advanced Quiver: Poison Arrows’ critical damage boost is increased to 8%

Night Lord

  • Critical Throw Critical Throw: the skill’s stats did not change based on amount of SP invested so the critical rate boost has been readjusted to be based on the skill level (the final boost is the same as before)

Shadower

  • Veil of Shadow Veil of Shadow: fixed an error where the damage would not apply if the character was transformed or bound

Dual Blade

Except for some of Dual Blade’s 5th job skills, their attack range was not very big and their power was not very high. The attack ranges of their main skills will be increased and to reduce the disadvantage of Blade Tornado, it will be buffed to match other 5th job skills.

  • Phantom Blow Phantom Blow: attack range has been increased by 60%
  • Blade Fury Blade Fury: attack range has been increased by 27%
  • Sharpness: critical rate boost has been increased from 25% to 35%

Adventurer Pirates

  • Octopush Octopush: action delay after jumping has been decreased

Nautilus’ additional attack had a slightly different duration so it has been changed to match the skill’s cooldown. Since it will up more frequently, the damage has been reduced to keep its performance the same.

  • Battleship Nautilus Nautilus: additional attack effect will no longer have a separate duration and will be activated while this skill is on cooldown, additional attack’s damage has been decreased from 250% to 165%

  • Nautilus Assault Nautilus Assault: fixed an error where invincibility did not apply while casting this skill

  • Bow Expert Bow Expert: critical damage boost has been increased from 8% to 20%

Night Walker

Siphon Vitality, which increases your maximum HP, can be disadvantageous while fighting bosses that deal a certain percentage of your HP so the skill has been changed to create a shield that increases survivability.

  • Critical Throw Critical Throw: the skill’s stats did not change based on amount of SP invested so the critical rate boost has been readjusted to be based on the skill level (the final boost is the same as before)

Siphon Vitality Effect (Shield)

  • Siphon Vitality Siphon Vitality: HP boost when you create a Mark of Darkness has been removed, now when you create all Marks of Darkness you will gain a shield for a certain period of time

Striker

  • Heaven and Earth Heaven and Earth: passive 25% damage boost has been changed to 20% final damage

Aran

It was difficult to add Fenrir Crash to the attack cycle because of the short time period of the Swing buff so its duration has been increased. The time that Generator could not be used after exiting Adrenaline Boost also felt quite long so it has been decreased.

  • Swing Research I Swing Study I: final damage boost after using Smash Swing’s duration has been increased from 2 seconds to 3 seconds

Phantom

Mark of Phantom could be considered a very high power skill conceptually, but its risk was too great for the skill to be as useful as it could be. This risk will be decreased by changing its Dark Sight effect to invincibility.

  • Judgement Judgement: the UI can now be moved using the mouse
  • Talent of Phantom Thief ITalent of Phantom Thief IITalent of Phantom Thief IIITalent of Phantom Thief IVTalent of Phantom Thief H Talent of Phantom Thief: fixed an error where stolen skills could not be used, fixed an error where using Net Throwing would cause the client to exit, fixed an error where Oak Barrel Roulette’s description did not appear correctly

Mechanic

Metal Armor Full Burst has a penalty after being used but the concept was to offset its high damage. However, the damage was not high enough and its penalty was more than intended, so the skill’s identity will be enhanced by increasing its damage.

Kaiser

Reshuffle Switch’s skill concept was to choose between attack and defense on a case-by-case basis but the defensive mode was almost never used.

  • Double Leap Double Leap: action delay after jumping has been decreased

Kinesis

Psychic Bullet has no cooldown and we intended for it to be one of several combat patterns. However, its damage was too high and it became the only choice. We have reduced its initial damage and increased the damage of the Micro Black Hole so you can make a choice between them.

  • Ultimate - Psychic Bullet Psychic Bullet: damage has been decreased from 1600% to 1100%, Micro Black Hole’s damage has been increased from 700% to 1000%, now if you use Psychic Bullet while a Micro Black Hole is still active the existing Micro Black Hole will not disappear and a new Micro Black Hole will not be created

Illium

It was difficult to know if a Reaction skill was activated on Soul of Crystal so its visibility has been increased by adding a separate effect. In addition, by increasing the power of other skills, Illium’s bossing ability has been increased.

  • Crystal Ignition Crystal Ignition: attack interval has been decreased by 40%
  • Gram Holder Gram Holder: number of hits has been increased from 5 to 6, duration has been increased from 30 seconds to 40 seconds

    RIP kinesis 2018-2018. A very brief stint of being useful, then they gored psychic bullet once, and made it part of a rotation, now it’s just straight up useless.

      Its actually a buff. The patch before this, the black hole will keep resetting, which made your PP not able to regenerate as much. Now because they made it so the black hole stays no matter how many times you spam the skill, you are able to regain PP. Nerfing the damage isnt a big deal, because this skill is only useful in mobbing.

        It’s not just a PP reset thing, that’s what Psychic Drain was for. I do agree that it is amazing in horizontal maps in like BTC, but because of the massive nerf to the base damage, it might mean that players will have to probably transition into Metal Press for their burst.

          wait what. bullet used for bossing? i thought metal press was always the go to boss skill . esp when in overload mode. btw where is BTC

        “It’s actually a buff” No, it’s not. Not by any stretch of the imagination in any way whatsoever. The skill originally released being able to stack black holes. You could rack up 10-20PP in a matter of seconds on a bound enemy. They changed it to only having one black hole at a time citing it a “bug fix”. That’s fine, you now can get 5 PP per on a good hit, even spamming it. Now, the black hole stays which means you have to TIME your throws, else you’ll end up throwing a bullet with no black hole as the other expires. It’s garbage, that’s way too much effort to put in to a rotation in bossing, it’s never going to be used.

          Have you read the patch before? You cannot stack black holes. They made it where if you spammed the skill, the black hole will keep resetting. So compared to last patch, it is a buff.

          Of course if you compare it to the very first patch of this skill, it is definitely a nerf.

            You didn’t even read my post which just proves you probably don’t even play kinesis, but that’s fine. Yes I read the patch, I played kinesis. this black hole that stays is worse in every way than just having it stay how it is now because the black holes disappear and if you’ve thrown out a new one and it’s not timed perfectly, you’re missing out on 2-3 lines of damage, which is enormous. The first patch was great, but it was broken. The last patch was a nerf which I didn’t like, but was understandable. This just gores it. There’s literally no reason to EVER use this skill. It’s far far worse than it was after the first nerf.

            In the first patch when they initially release this skill, it’s stackable, and it even triggers telekinesis…. It was changed because it’s too OP, understood. But this is……… really garbage, it’s just a mobbing skill after this shit “revamp”

    Wtf, they boost night lord n db so much and they just going to ignore shadower at all?!! Why not fix the 3rd v skill burst dmg or duration or fix the meso explo n assasinate combo which are so hard o maintain together esp. in global/sea. That’s just plain lazy work there and no love at all! In this case they might as well change the future shadowers all to dualblades since they don’t even bother to care about it at all at this point!

        The range improvement for db is ok, not complaining but they buff blade tornado skill dmg and reduce cd which is unreasonable at all (Note says that db 3rd v skill weaker than others bla bla bs when actually shad 3rd v skill 90 sec cd for 2.5sec burst is much worse than db blade tempest burst with same cd and higher dmg% wtf! so reasonably their other skills should be weaker since their burst so much op!) By reading that sidenote alone, can tell they favor db so so much lol! They have no qualms about increasing eviscerate cd from 10 to 14 sec previously so why only db gets the cd reduction by 25%? Unless they reduce cd for shad 3rd v skill or eviscerate, then that would be fair for both!!

      How?

      If you multiply the lines and changed damage, they made it so that you have more LINES which is very important. The base damage remains the same. If anything, Joint Attack has become better. If you use an attack buff or something, the extra lines make it stronger than if you had less lines even at a higher damage. For funded players, if they hit cap damage, having higher damage is useless and thus the extra lines make their attacks that much more effective.

    Kaiser ? Oh please, replace the command button with the old command would be the best buff, nothing seem to be changed but a little bit of boss damage percentage, and the defense mode ? Still nobody will use it unless they’re really bored.

      Uhh are you dumb kaiser had huge changes this patch.

      FINAL FORM HITBOX IS THE SAME AS EVERY CHARACTER NOW.

      That by itself is monumental.

      We got reduced delay between flash that’s fine. And dragon link is useless BUT not for wing beat because if you use dragon link for it the second wave casts FASTER.

      Also decent buffs to attacker mode.

        When you said ” Huge changes “, it’s like ” well Kaiser hasn’t been changed for a while now “. First of all During bossing, yes people may cast Wing Beat two times to charge the Gauge for transformation, but Final form in GMS is different from Final form in MSea because of it as well so not so many people transform unless they need final damage boost. Yes it’s good if the hit box changed, and people may use final form more often, but it’s not “Huge changes” since it’s only a little bit better compare to the time they updated Dragon Link to replace the combo system which already had the function to charge Dragon Gauge faster and Regen.

    I’m going to assume the “monster appearance speed” improvements for Savage Terminal and Tenebris aren’t about spawn rate, but rather their spawn animations. Guessing it’s because their spawn animations take too long. would that be correct?

    • Max
      December 8, 2018 at 4:36 pm

      I think it is spawn rate, in the data they increased/decreased a variable called mobRate for each map in Moonbridge/Labyrinth and the 3 in Savage Terminal.

    Does Night Walker’s shield HP get shown as a number anywhere?

    If it gets added to the normal heath bar like Angelic Buster, that would be terrible. My AB keeps dying because of that stupid shield making it look like I have more HP than I actually have.

      they don’t exist on KMS so you usually don’t get info for them until 4-5 months later when JMS/GMS/TMS/every other version really, gets them.

        Sadly they get revamped half of 1/3 the times the normal classes do get revamped.

    Hi Max, as you mentioned in BaM’s Grim Reaper: “the duration increase will now increase by the max per attack”, I believe you missed a “3 seconds” before “per attack”.

    “Unstable Memorize: when a skill that has no SP invested in it is used, you will now perform a special action”
    So you can’t deliberately leave some skills at level 0 to maximize your chance at free Infinity casts anymore right? And how does this special action work anyway?

    • Anonymous
      December 9, 2018 at 8:56 am

      I’d also like to know the special action but we most likely won’t find out about it until the patch hits live. Side note leaving some skills not leveled results in no skill being cast, it still occupies the chance to roll into that skill but it won’t cast the skill so it ultimately doesn’t increase the chances to roll into anything as no skill gets deducted from the pool.

    lots of flash jumps revamped except for the worst flash jump in the game(kinesis)

    • SomeFaggot
      December 10, 2018 at 10:31 am

      I think the idea is that those characters incorporate flash jump into their usual mobbing rotations more so than others. Kinesis can attack, pretty much, the whole map from one spot so mobility isn’t as important.

    Hey max. Does that 2nd password section mean I’ll have to change mine? If so, do you need to reverify your account when you change it or just use the email?

    • Max
      December 12, 2018 at 10:45 pm

      If you login and it shows a message about your 2nd password, you’ll have to change it to match their new security restrictions. After March 30 or whatever, you can no longer change your 2nd pw in-game and must do it on the website, and you can only do that if your account is verified.

        So no need to reverify, thank god.
