KMS ver. 1.2.309 – MapleStory Adventure: Skill Balancing & Pre-Registration!

December 12, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

Adventure.0

The first patch for the winter has been released, and it’s a bit disappointing haha. First of all, this winter’s update is called MapleStory Adventure! There’s not much information about it so far but it does have something to do with a place called Adventure Island.

This patch contains a pre-registration event so technically, the Adventure update will not start until January 10 (official server, test server patch should be on January 3).

This patch also contains the skill balancing from the last test server patch (as well as some extra changes) and the Christmas event for this year. There’s even another Tera Burning event!

2018christMas.0

Here’s the world select screen.

Update Info Centre

GM Sori was really lazy this patch, just an image instead of a video for the Maple Update Info Centre.

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 its 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

Archmage (I/L)

  • 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
  • Frozen Orb Frozen Orb: castdelay has been decreased by 35%
  • 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 small, so they had a big disadvantage while hunting, even when considering Holy Symbol so 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 38%
  • 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 arrowhead 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%

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 Sharpness: critical rate boost has been increased from 25% to 35%

Adventurer Pirates

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

  • elysion Elysion: cooldown has been decreased from 240 seconds to 180 seconds

Wind Breaker

  • Wind Blessing Wind Blessing: has been changed into a passive 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.

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

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.

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

      adventure is the start of the winter patch series (think ark series, black mage series, etc etc). Unless this is the first winter in like a decade where they don’t actually have a major patch set.

      couple 3rd phase runs as well, not posted on youtube as the people don’t really want to put themselves out as marks. No one’s beaten him yet. Hilla’s still a really difficult boss, and she’s REQUIRED to get an item necessary to get the item to enter the black mage fight. So, it’ll be a while. GMS/TMS will just use their p2w shit to beat him the day he’s out though don’t worry.

          GMS and TMS both have ridiculous p2w like BoD that literally let you survive dying and instakill techniques, and both (TMS more notably) has people who can hit damage cap reliably. There’s a damned hard lucid SOLO that happened on tms.

    Does the Bowmaster Poison Arrows Critical Damage debuff boost damage for other people as well, or does it only apply for the Bowmaster who debuffed the enemy?

    Are the KMS Demon Avengers not bothered at all by the fact that you need to switch off Demonic Frenzy just to have enough health to reuse their V decent skills? We use more than 4 of those buffs and it’s atrocious. I think it’s futile to try and get this through to the global team so I was just wondering.
