KMS ver. 1.2.348 – MapleStory’s 18th Anniversary Pt. 2 & Improvements!

The second patch for the 18th anniversary has been released, although it’s only a single new event to replace Blooming Race. Other than that, this patch includes a lot of improvements and bug fixes. Nexon also released a notice stating the changes they made from KMST based on feedback, which I’ll include at the beginning of the post.

Changes from KMST ver. 1.2.121

Reboot Improvements

The Reboot passive’s damage % boost will be kept the same as it is currently.

Developer Notes:

We are preparing the Reboot passive improvement with a goal of implementing it in the June update after additional testing. In addition, we will review the regular monsters’ HP and experience multiplier to see if there is anything that we can change.

Event Improvements

The Blooming Dance Party‘s difficulty has been slightly decreased.

  • The number of dance moves in stage 3~4 has been decreased from 6 to 5.
  • The number of dance moves in stage 6~7 has been decreased from 9 to 7.
  • The number of dance moves in stage 8~9 has been decreased from 12 to 10.

Developer Notes:

When we reviewed the test world’s Blooming Dance Party play patterns, we saw that a lower amount of people reached the higher stages when compared to previous events, so we have adjusted the difficulty to make it a bit easier.

Skill Error Fixes

The following patterns can now also be defended against by Mikhail’s Royal Guard and Adele’s Dike.

  • Pierre’s falling hat pattern
  • Vellum’s stalactite pattern

Improvements

Skills

Certain jobs’ skills have had attack speed increasing effects added or their existing effects have been increased.

  • Hero: Weapon Mastery Weapon Mastery now increases attack speed by 1 stage.
  • Paladin: Weapon Mastery Weapon Mastery now increases attack speed by 1 stage.
  • Adventurer Magicians: MP Increase MP Increase now increases attack speed by 1 stage.
  • Adventurer Archers: archer mastery Archer Mastery now increases attack speed by 1 stage.
  • Cannon Shooter: Buck Shot Buck Shot now increases attack speed by 1 stage.
  • Flame Wizard: Book of Fire Book of Fire‘s attack speed boost has been increased from 1 stage to 2 stages. Scroll Polishing Spell Control now increases attack speed by 1 stage.
  • Luminous: Spell Mastery Spell Mastery now increases attack speed by 1 stage.
  • Angelic Buster: Lyrical Cross Lyrical Cross‘ attack speed boost has been increased from 1 stage to 2 stages.
  • Kinesis: pure-power Pure Power now increases attack speed by 1 stage.

The maximum limit for mastery has been increased from 95% to 99%.

Developer Notes:

Currently, only Kinesis applied mastery up to 99% while other classes were restricted to 95%. When Expert type skills had their skill levels increased by things like Combat Orders, the mastery would not be increased past this limit so we have increased it.

Bowmaster

  • Bow Acceleration Bow Booster: This skill has been changed to a passive skill. The skill name has been changed to Bow Acceleration. This skill now increases DEX by 20 at max level.
  • afterimage-shot Afterimage Shot: Active effect’s damage has been increased from 800% to 1200% (at level 25). Cooldown has been increased from 30 seconds to 60 seconds.

Developer Notes:

For Afterimage Shot, it was inconvenient to use it every 30 seconds to activate the passive effect, so we have alleviated this by increasing the cooldown.

Viper

  • When you die and resurrect, your Energy will now be maintained without having to use a Buff Freezer.

Soul Master

  • elysion Elysion: Duration has been increased from 30 seconds to 40 seconds. Cross the Styx will no longer consume MP while this skill is active.
  • Soul Eclipse Soul Eclipse: Duration has been increased from 30 seconds to 40 seconds.

Wind Breaker

  • Pinpoint Pierce Pinpoint Pierce: Debuff duration has been increased from 30 seconds to 60 seconds.

Phantom

  • Cane Acceleration Cane Booster: This skill has been changed to a passive skill. The skill name has been changed to Cane Acceleration. This skill now increases LUK by 20 at max level.
  • Misfortune Protection Misfortune Protection: This skill has been changed to a passive skill. The elemental resistance and status resistance have been increased from 40%/40 to 45%/45.
  • Pray of Aria Pray of Aria: Damage boost and defense ignore have been changed to passive effects.
  • REMOVED! Protect Misfortune - Immunity Enhance Misfortune Protection – Immunity Enhance, Protect Misfortune - Max Heart Point Misfortune Protection – Max Heart Points, Protect Misfortune - Max Magic Point Misfortune Protection – Max Magic Points
  • NEW! Talent of Phantom Thief Reinforce Talent of Phantom Thief – Reinforce: Stolen attacking skills’ damage is increased by 15%. [required level: 150]
  • NEW! Talent of Phantom Thief Persist Talent of Phantom Thief – Persist: Stolen buff skills’ durations are increased by 10%. [required level: 165]
  • NEW! Talent of Phantom Thief Enhance Talent of Phantom Thief – Enhance: Increase Steal Skill’s number of 4th job skill slots by 1. [required level: 190]

  • blackjack Blackjack: Number of cards thrown when Blackjack is used has been increased from 1 to 3, bounce damage has been increased from 800% to 1200%, unseal damage has been increased from 1200% to 1600%, number of bounces has been decreased from 20 to 6 per card, cards’ movement speed has been decreased (at level 25). The Liberated Card effect has been added: after using Blackjack, if you re-use the skill when all 3 cards still remain, they will now all fly to the enemy with the highest maximum HP in range in front of you and disappear, liberate their power and deal 1400% damage 1 time on up to 10 enemies, activating 3 times. The number of attack activations will increase based on the thrown cards’ remaining attacks (including the unsealed attack), up to 21 attack activations. If you cast this skill by pressing the down arrow key with the skill, the Liberation attack will be activated as soon as the cards are thrown. The existing function to instantly unseal the cards when the skill is re-used has been changed to activate the liberation attack.

Developer Notes:

Since Talent of Phantom Thief is usually used for buff skills, the number of buffs that needed to be used was high so certain buffs were changed to passives to reduce inconvenience. In addition, to increase Blackjack’s effectiveness a bit, we increased the number of cards and added a new feature.

Luminous

  • Dark Crescendo Dark Crescendo: Buff duration has been increased from 12 seconds to 20 seconds.

Crossroads of Destiny

  • NEW! Crossoads of Destiny Crossroads of Destiny: You can choose between walking the path of light or path of darkness again to change your skills. However, the story cannot be changed and will proceed with your initial choice. You can only use this skill in towns. You can press the ESC key to cancel the selection and close the UI. This skill is not affected by cooldown resets and cooldown decreasing effects. (max level: 1)
    • Level 1: Cooldown: 6 hours.

Developer Notes:

After the Dark Crescendo change, certain content showed different patterns than before so we have increased the duration a little more. In addition, since the choice between light and darkness happens shortly after character creation, we have added a new skill that lets you choose between them again after growing your character enough so that it doesn’t affect performance that much.

Demon Slayer

  • Devil Cry Devil Cry: Action delay has been decreased by 23%.

Kain

  • PossessionPossession II Possession/Possession II: Malice created every few seconds has been increased by 10.
  • Sneaky SnipingManifest Execute Sneaky Sniping Sneaky Sniping/[Possess/Execute] Sneaky Sniping: First attack’s range has been increased by 11%.
  • Grip of Agony Grip of Agony: MP consumed has been decreased from 1000 MP to 600 MP, duration has been decreased from 6 seconds to 5 seconds, maximum number of harvested Agony has been decreased from 15 to 5, maximum duration has been decreased from 20 seconds to 10 seconds, cooldown has been decreased from 180 seconds to 90 seconds, damage has been increased from 950% to 1200% (at level 25).

Developer Notes:

Grip of Agony’s duration and cooldown have been decreased so that it can be used more flexibly to match battle situations.

Zero

  • Divine ForceDivine Swift Divine Force/Divine Swift: Buff Freezers will now apply to these skills.
  • Critical Bind Critical Bind: Critical Bind will no longer bind normal monsters. Monsters that are not bound by Critical Bind will now be debuffed, and Alpha’s critical rate and critical damage will be increased when hitting monsters with this debuff like when hitting bound enemies. The debuff has the same resistance time as the bind resistance.

Developer Notes:

Critical Bind was inconvenient because of the constant messages of bind resistance when attacking a large number of normal monsters, and Critical Bind’s critical damage boost effect did not apply to enemies that weren’t affected by the bind. Since there was little benefit to binding normal monsters, we have changed it so that it only affects boss monsters and the skill now debuffs enemies that are not bound, so that the critical damage boost effect would still be applied.

Boss Monsters

9091000.img.stand.0_new

The boss monster exit portals have been changed to be translucent so they do not cover attack patterns.

When the Damaged Black Heart, Absolabs Essence, and Arcane Shade Essence drop, they will now appear as large icons.

[Colour Blindness Support] Pierre (Normal/Chaos)’s hats have been changed to have different patterns to make them easier to distinguish.

  • Purple Pierre and Blue Pierre’s hat patterns have been changed.
  • Pierre’s Soul icon and the Chaos Pierre Clear Reset Ticket icon have been changed to match the updated hat patterns.
  • Pierre’s Soul Skills ‘Surprise Pierre’ and ‘Pierre’s Hat Gift’ have been changed to match the updated hat patterns.

The resurrection logic in Zakum (Easy/Normal/Chaos), Von Bon (Normal/Chaos) and Vellum (Normal/Chaos) have been changed to a method where you resurrect without re-entering.

  • Alleviated an issue in Von Bon (Chaos) where if a character died then resurrected when the space time collapse pattern was activated, Von Bon would continuously stay in an invincible state.

Developer Notes:

The resurrection logic has been changed to fix issues caused by the re-entry logic such as continuous patterns’ images being invisible if you died then resurrected when soloing or casting 2 patterns at the same time which should not have been cast together.

In Lucid (Easy/Normal), the Nightmare Golems and Nightmare Poison Mushrooms have been changed from taking fixed damage to having normal HP.

Lucid’s bomb pattern’s difficulty has been eased.

  • Lucid will now cast the bomb debuff on all characters, and you will only be able to see your own bomb and its remaining explosion time.
  • When the bomb explodes, instead of the damage being distributed amongst nearby party members, the damage you take yourself will now be decreased based on the number of nearby party members.
  • The bomb’s damage has been decreased from 199% max HP to 180% max HP.
  • When the pattern is activated, a dream containing Lucid’s memories will now appear at specific areas of the map. If you are near the dream when the bomb explodes, you will receive the same damage reduction effect as if you had 1 party member nearby. However, if there is even 1 other party member nearby, you will not receive the damage reduction effect from the dream.
  • When the bomb explodes, it will no longer spread to other characters.

Developer Notes:

We have reduced inconvenience by applying the remaining time and distance to party members more accurately, and have changed the pattern so that it can be overcome even when soloing.

Sealed Genesis Weapon Box

The Genesis weapon liberation quests’ difficulty have been eased.

  • When challenging Will, Lucid, or Jin Hilla, you can now perform the mission in a party of 2 or less if you are both on the same Liberation mission and have not already cleared it. If you enter as a party of 2, you will receive an additional penalty of 50% final damage reduction.

Developer Notes: (TN: I actually forgot these in the KMST patch notes!)

The Genesis weapon liberation quests were designed to have the maximum difficulty in single-player format. But depending on the boss monster patterns, there were big differences in relative difficulty when soloing them, so we have tried to ease their difficulty by allowing party play with limited conditions. To prevent drastically changing the difficulty, you can only participate with party members who are on the same mission and you will receive a final damage reduction.

Ability

Resetting Ability

The Ability rank up difficulty has been eased.

  • When resetting Ability, the rank can no longer go down.
  • Since ranks can no longer go down, the feature to lock Ability rank has been removed.
  • When resetting Ability, the chance to increase ranks from Epic to Unique has been changed from 1% to 2%.

The method of resetting Ability lines will remain the same. The first line will be the same rank as your Ability and the second/third lines will be set based on the probability of the Ability rank.

The Ability reset costs have been changed as follows.

  • You can no longer lock lines at Epic rank.

Ability Reset Costs

Developer Notes:

We are planning to improve the Ability system’s difficulty step-by-step, and the first one is to ease the difficulty of tiering up and reducing deviation. Resetting Ability will no longer decrease rank, and the overall reset costs when locking lines have been decreased. As a result, the expected amount of Honor required to go from Rare to Legendary has been decreased by about 15%.

Etc

Certain parts of the Blaster image in the Resistance character creation window illustration have been changed.

Xenon and Zero’s character creation window illustrations have been changed to use spine effects.

The item enhancement UI has been improved.

  • Fixed an error where if you were enhancing an equipped pendant, the damage boost when compared to another slot’s pendant would be displayed.
  • Equipment that cannot be equipped will no longer display the damage boost.
  • While enhancing items, you can no longer equip or unequip items.
  • While enhancing items, you can no longer move items in your inventory or use the item sort feature.

Developer Notes:

To avoid mistakes due to equipment locations changing while enhancing items, we have changed it so that they cannot be moved.

Wish Coin Drops

The Wish Coin acquisition logic has been improved.

  • Pets can now pick up Wish Coins normally.
  • Wish Coins will now appear with a large icon when they drop.
  • When additional Wish Coins cannot be accumulated due to situations such as already having acquired 400 Wish Coins in a week, a message will now be displayed on the screen.

All Cure Potion

The All Cure Potion‘s item description has been updated to include a list of statuses that it can remove.

  • Poison
  • Seal
  • Blind
  • Weakness
  • Curse

The Diligence and ‘Master of Enhancement’ guild skills‘ descriptions have been updated to include a list of scroll types that are not affected.

Current Hair Colour Preview

In the Cash Shop, you can now preview Hair Coupons or Face Coupons using your character’s current hair and face colour.

The maximum number of Red Cube Fragments, Black Cube Fragments, and Additional Cube Fragments in a single slot has been changed to 9999.

Pet Auto Pot Settings

In the System Options, a new option has been added that lets you choose if Pet Auto HP should apply when your skills consume HP. The maximum amount shown has been changed to 95% to match the current logic.

Union Preset Difference

In the Maple Union UI, when looking at other presets (even if they are not being edited), it will now show the difference in attackers and battle power from the currently applied preset.

In Monster Park, if you try to enter while the profession window is open, a notice will now be outputted that tells you to close all related windows and try to enter again.

The Lady Blair’s Dream Express event will now appear in the event list 7 days before it starts so you can confirm the event period.

Adventurer Magician’s Unstable Memorize’s skill description has been changed from ‘random’ to ‘specific’.

Developer Notes:

Since only certain 1st~4th job skills are activated and the chance of activating later job advancement skills is higher, the chance is different for each skill so we have updated the wording to be clearer.

Papulatus (Skill 3)

Papulatus can no longer be bound while in the Alarm Mode.

Developer Notes:

During the Alarm Mode, Papulatus does not use any patterns other than the map pattern, but if it was bound, it would begin to move freely after the bind ended, allowing it to use its own patterns along with the map pattern, which increased the difficulty. We have changed it so that it can no longer be bound while in Alarm Mode so that the difficulty does not change based on skill usage.

Fixed an issue in Suu where if a party member died in Phase 1 then didn’t revive until the party members entered phase 3, they would not be able to move after being moved to phase 2.

When there are party members who exited, the number of candles will now be decided based on the number of remaining party members. The number of candles will change after the next soul cut.

In Black Mage phase 3, the powerful damage laser’s effect has been changed to be different from the regular laser. Fixed an issue in phase 3 where Mikhail’s Soul Link applied to party members.

Quests

Fixed an issue where there was an awkward notice when trying to enter the Resistance Headquarters’ Training Room Force.

Fixed an issue with the ‘[Arkarium] Queen of Elves’ quest where if you accepted it and immediately forfeited it, you could continuously receive Afrien’s Essence.

Fixed an issue in the Cross World Party Quest First Accompaniment <Last Gateway> where if there was one party member and the character died, an additional King Slime would be created.

Fixed an issue in Reboot World where if you completed the ‘Who Am I’ quest, you would receive a 100% Gloves Attack Scroll.

Fixed an issue in Reboot World where if you completed the ‘Scheherazade’s Third Problem’ quest, you would receive a 100% Overall STR Scroll.

Items

Fixed an issue with certain item images.

When you clear a boss and it drops equipment with Rare or higher potential, the size of the aura effect has been fixed.

Fixed an issue where certain profession crafting recipes’ item names were awkward.

When enhancing equipment, the maximum amount of speed and jump has been increased to 100.

Developer Notes:

The maximum amount of speed and jump that an equipment could have was based on the low 40/23 set in the past. After that number was exceeded when enhancing items then the number of enhancements were reset, an error would occur where the speed and jump would be applied as negative numbers.

We will correct this error by increasing the maximum limit of speed and jump to 100.

Fixed an issue where personality traitf experience acquired from personality trait items was included in the daily limit.

Android item descriptions have been unified to display the same information about the ‘Go to Store button in the Android equipment window’.

  • Cadena: Agent Shoes (defense decreased from 5 to 2, number of slots increased from 2 to 5)
  • Angelic Buster: Nova Training Shoes (defense decreased from 5 to 2, number of slots increased from 2 to 5)

Developer Notes: 

There was an issue where Innocent Scrolls could not be used for these equipment because their original stats were different than the ones given upon character creation. To fix this, we have adjusted the original stats to match the ones given later.

The tooltips for certain rings sold in the Blooming Personal Coin Shop have been changed.

  • The Cosmos Ring “Complete” Exchange Ticket will now display the completely enhanced item.
  • The Vengeance Ring “Complete” Exchange Ticket will now display the completely enhanced item.

Fixed an issue where if Zero was Star Force enhancing Lazuli, the results window would output Lapis’ icon.

Fixed an issue in the character stats UI where Legendary Ability lines’ background images were outputted awkwardly.

In the Equipment Transfer UI, the tooltip for the Equipment Trace has been changed to say ‘Failed when enhancing at 13 stars or higher’ to ‘Failed when enhancing at 12 stars or higher’.

Developer Notes:

We have changed the notice text in the UI to match the current logic since it was unclear that it was talking about trying to enhance from 12 to 13 stars.

    Talent of Phantom Thief Enhance Talent of Phantom Thief – Enhance: Increase Steal Skill’s number of 4th job skill slots by 1

    Does this increase the number of skills they have access to at one time or they can just steal an additional skill?

    • Max
      May 20, 2021 at 2:44 pm

      It just gives 1 more slot in the UI to hold stolen skills, it doesn’t let you use more skills at the same time.

    So ability rank can’t drop, does this include unique lines under the legendary prime line and if they are unique already, they will never drop below unique making attaining 3rd line boss% much easier or am I wrong in this understanding of rank can’t drop and that only affects the top ability line?

    • Max
      May 20, 2021 at 2:45 pm

      Nope it only applies to the overall ability rank (aka the top line). The other two lines can still be any rank, based on the rates they provided beforehand.
