A week before the official server patch, the test world has been updated with the new boss Watcher Kalos and its area of The Tower That Never Stops, Karotte as well as the new level 250 Ethernel equipment and more job balancing!

Unfortunately, Karotte is not a new level 275 area, it is only a small storyline addition to Hotel Arcs at level 270 and it does not have a new Authentic Symbol or any new monster maps. But it does tease the next area in Grandis, which will be called Odium!

Will be adding in the last few error fixes at a later time since I’m busy playing Lost Ark :^)

  • Ethernel Knight Pants
  • Ethernel Mage Pants
  • Ethernel Archer Pants
  • Ethernel Thief Pants
  • Ethernel Pirate Pants

Remains of Kalos Will

The Ethernel equipment can be obtained by defeating the Watcher Kalos, collecting 10 ‘Remains of Kalos’ Will’, and using them to choose one of the hat/top/bottom items.

Ethernel Set (Warrior)

The Ethernel set has the following set effects. In this update, the set consists of 4 pieces (weapon, hat, top, and bottom) and includes the Genesis Weapon.

  • 2-Set: 2500 HP/MP, 40 attack/magic attack, 10% boss damage
  • 3-Set: 50 all stats, 40 attack/magic attack, 600 defense, 10% boss damage
  • 4-Set: 15% maximum HP/MP, 40 attack/magic attack, 10% boss damage

Developer Notes:

As mentioned in the DESTINY Live Talk, we have added the Ethernel equipment’s hat, top, and bottom which can be acquired from Kalos. In addition, to make the provision of the equipment faster than the cycle we talked about before, Kalos will drop the ‘Remains of Kalos’ Will’ at a 100% rate as individual rewards, and after you collect 10 of them, you can trade them in for one of the Ethernel hat/top/bottom items.

The set effects for the parts that can be acquired in this update have been added up to 4, and the set effects for 5 and more parts will be added when new pieces of the set are added.

Also, considering that when changing from the Root Abyss set to the Ethernel set, players could no longer receive the ‘10% maximum HP/MP’ from the 3-set effect of the Root Abyss set, we have moved the ‘15% maximum HP/MP’ stat from the previous 6-set effect of Ethernel to the 4-set effect.

Improvements

Skills

Developer Notes:

As mentioned in the previous Adventurer Remaster update, we have made additional numerical adjustments and structural/error fixes for most jobs based on the data we looked at after the update.

Certain remastered Adventurers’ skills became much more effective than we intended and we inevitably had to slightly nerf them. Since the range of changes was so big, we will continue to adjust the Adventurer jobs more quickly than other jobs for a while. We ask for your understanding.

For the remaining jobs, we made additional combat performance buffs and structural adjustments. The numerical changes were set to a maximum of around 10%.

As mentioned in previous Developer Notes, combat performance adjustment work will be carried out steadily and continuously with the adjustment range being set as conservatively as possible to prevent sudden changes.

We hope that these skill improvements will give players a more enjoyable combat experience than before, we will do our best to show a more complete look.

Hero

  • Weapon Acceleration Weapon Acceleration: The STR boost has been increased from 10 to 20.

Paladin

  • Blessing Armor Blessing Armor: The skill will no longer be affected by skill effect transparency.

Dark Knight

  • Reincarnation Reincarnation: The skill will no longer be affected by skill effect transparency while Reincarnation is active.
  • Beholder's Revenge Beholder’s Revenge: The damage has been increased from 182% to 255%.
  • Dark Resonance Dark Resonance: The boss damage boost has been increased from 10% to 15%.
  • beholder-impact Beholder Impact: The damage has been increased from 125% to 235% (at level 25).

Adventurer Magicians

  • Infinity Infinity: The skill will no longer be affected by skill effect transparency while Infinity is active.
  • Unstable Memorize Unstable Memorize: The cooldown has been decreased from 360 seconds to 355 seconds (at level 25). The rates and percentages of the cooldown reduction have been changed. When you use Unstable Memorize but fail to use the activated skill, Unstable Memorize’s cooldown will now be reset.
    • 1% chance of 20% reduction
    • 5% chance of 25% reduction -> 6% chance of 23% reduction
    • 10% chance of 30% reduction -> 6% chance of 24% reduction
    • 35% chance of 35% reduction -> 6% chance of 25% reduction
    • 15% chance of 40% reduction -> 10% chance of 27% reduction
    • 10% chance of 45% reduction -> 11% chance of 30% reduction
    • 5% chance of 50% reduction -> 12% chance of 33% reduction
    • 5% chance of 55% reduction -> 12% chance of 35% reduction
    • 5% chance of 60% reduction -> 12% chance of 38% reduction
    • 5% chance of 70% reduction -> 8% chance of 40% reduction
    • 3% chance of 75% reduction -> 6% chance of 45% reduction
    • 1% chance of 80% reduction -> 5% chance of 50% reduction
    • 2% chance of 55% reduction
    • 2% chance of 60% reduction
    • 1% chance of 65% reduction
  • Memory Choice Memory Choice: When Memory Choice is activated and you use the number keys to select a skill, continuous input of the number keys will now be ignored for a short period of time.

Developer Notes:

In the previous Adventurer Remaster update, Unstable Memorize was changed to activate a fixed skill and have its cooldown decreased based on a certain rate. This was done to remove the negative experiences when an unwanted skill was selected, and to improve the structural problem where you had to input the skill frequently even in complex combat situations.

We achieved our goals above through the structural changes. However, in this process, the difficulty of maintaining Infinity became much lower than before, and as a result, Adventurer magicians’ overall combat performance became excessively higher than we intended.

Therefore, in this update, we have slightly lowered Unstable Memorize’s performance. We ask for your understanding.

Separately, since Unstable Memorize’s cooldown became longer and the risk of skill failure increased, we have added a feature to Unstable Memorize that resets its cooldown if it is failed to be used due to things like attacks from boss monsters, to improve the experience of using the skill.

Since the range of changes in the previous Remaster update wa very big, we will continue to monitor for a while and continuously make changes to ensure proper combat performance.

Archmage (F/P)

  • Megiddo Flame Megiddo Flame: The skill has been changed so that the monster with the highest maximum HP is prioritized only when it is a boss monster. Monsters that are invincible or cannot be hit will no longer be tracked.
  • DoT Finisher DoT Punisher: Monsters that are invincible or cannot be hit will no longer be tracked.

Archmage (I/L)

  • Chain Lightning Chain Lightning: When Chain Lightning hits an enemy, the delay for the damage skin being outputted has been changed to be faster.
  • Ice Aura Ice Aura: The sound effect while Ice Aura is active has been removed.

  • Fountain for Angels Fountain for Angels: The duration will now be displayed as a buff icon.
  • Angel Ray Angel Ray: Fixed an issue where Angel Ray could hit certain monsters that could not be hit by attacking skills.
  • Big Bang Big Bang: This skill now deals 50% increased damage on regular monsters.
  • Holy Blood Holy Blood: The skill description has been changed to be more accurate. After this skill is used, it can no longer be cancelled for 1 second even if the skill is re-used.

Bowmaster

  • The 2nd job skills’ UI display order has been changed.

Marksman

  • The skill descriptions have beenc hanged to be more accurate overall.
  • Sniping Sniping: The damage has been increased from 465% to 480%.
  • Enhanced Sniping Enhanced Sniping: The damage has been increased from 510% to 535%. The damage of the additional hit activated when Sniping hits a marked enemy has been increased from 250% to 320%. The additional hit will now be affected by Additional Bolt and Sniping – Bonus Attack.
  • Repeating Crossbow Cartridge Repeating Crossbow Cartridge: Full Burst Shot will now prioritize hitting the boss monster with the highest maximum HP if there is a boss monster within range. Full Burst Shot’s firing location has been slightly changed. Full Burst Shot’s damage has been increased from 600% to 750% (at level 25).

Pathfinder

  • Ancient Bow Acceleration Ancient Bow Booster has been changed to Ancient Bow Acceleration.

Night Lord

  • Shadow Leap Shadow Leap: The distance moved when used on the ground has been decreased.
  • Triple ThrowQuadruple Throw Triple Throw/Quadruple Throw: The skill descriptions have been changed to be more accurate.

Developer Notes:

In the previous Adventurer Remaster, we added the up-jump skill Shadow Leap to Night Lords.

For Night Lords, they had Shadow Web for upwards mobility and it could be linked with Flash Jump after it was used. To keep this experience, we made it so that Shadow Leap could also be linked with Flash Jump.

However, in the process of adding Shadow Leap, the upwards movement distance was significantly higher than before, and with the addition of being able to link it with Flash Jump, their mobility increased excessively when compared to before the Remaster.

Therefore, we would like to adjust their mobility by slightly decreasing the upwards movement distance while maintaining the characteristic of being able to link it with Flash Jump.

Shadower

  • Cruel Stab Cruel Stab: The lower range has been increased by about 27%.
  • Meso Explosion - Enhance Meso Explosion – Enhance: The skill description has been changed to be more accurate.

  • Head Shot Headshot: The damage has been decreased from 1185% to 980%.
  • Pirate Style Pirate Style: The stance boost has been changed to a passive effect. The reduced evasion rate will now be displayed more accurately.
  • Bullet Party Bullet Party: The damage has been increased from 455% to 500% (at level 25).

Developer Notes:

In the previous Adventurer Remaster, we tried to increase Captain’s combat stability in more recent dynamic boss battles by reducing the dependency and uncertainty of summons and increasing the damage of their own skills. Various changes were made in line with this goal, and among them, Headshot’s damage was significantly increased.

As a result, using Headshot unintentionally became more effective than using 5th job skills and Captain’s combat performance also increased excessively higher than we intended.

Therefore, in this update, we have made some adjustments to Headshot and Bullet Party’s damage. We apologize for not taking a closer look at the changes in combat performance beforehand.

Cannon Shooter

  • The 2nd job skills’ UI display order has been changed.
  • Mini Cannonball Mini Cannonball: The damage has been increased from 180% to 360%.

Fixed an issue where the Highness Warrior Helm item looked awkward from behind the character.

One-Handed Weapon Motions

It has been improved so that when you have a two-handed weapon and certain other game weapons equipped, you can now choose to change your Cash weapon’s motions to the one-handed weapon motions. The option is at the bottom left of the equipment window > Cash tab. You can also preview Cash weapons’ one-handed weapon motions in the Cash Shop’s preview window.

  • Affected Game Weapons: Two-handed sword, two-handed axe, two-handed blunt weapon, spear, polearm, crossbow, gun.
  • Affected Cash Weapons: Cash weapons that can be equipped over all weapons, Cash weapons that can also be equipped over one-handed swords (e.g. Singing Violin).
  • Actions that Apply One-Handed Weapon Motions: Standing, walking, jumping, taking a breath.

Developer Notes:

Since Cash weapons can already be equipped over various game weapons, it is possible to provide the option to view one-handed weapon motions for them.

Cash weapons include all sold Cash weapons as well as those given through events such as the Fairy Wonky’s Glowing Leaf. You can choose the one-handed weapon view option if you have a two-handed sword, two-handed axe, two-handed blunt weapon, spear, polearm, crossbow, or gun equipped with a Cash weapon that can be equipped over all weapons or on one-handed swords.

We tried to implement the requests from players who wanted their weapons to not cover their characters as much as possible, but we ask for your understanding that it would be difficult to apply a full conversion to one-handed weapon motions as the game weapons are currently only able to operate with set motions.

Maps

It has been improved so that you can use the Maple Gate and Friends Gate in ‘Hideout/Headquarters’ and ‘East Forest/Magician Association’ by clicking on them.

UI

When connecting to a web browser while playing the game, it has been changed to open the default browser instead of Internet Explorer.

You can now remove skills from Pet Auto Buff even when it is deactivated.

If you enter an incorrect answer more than 3 times in the Meso Market’s lie detector, you will now be moved to the Room of Truth.

Zero

  • Fixed an error where Zero’s Critical Bind’s bind effect duration did not apply correctly in certain situations. The skill description has been changed to be more accurate.

Developer Notes:

In the January 27 update, we changed it so that if Critical Bind was used on an enemy that was already bound, Critical Bind’s bind effect would be added to the existing bind effect and be applied.

However, in the last update notice, there wasn’t enough detail for our improvement work so it was confusing to understand if the maximum time would be guaranteed when using Critical Bind.

First of all, there is a condition that Critical Bind’s bind effect is applied only when the remaining duration of the regular bind is less than 2 seconds (half of Critical Bind’s bind duration). Critical Bind is usually used after mainitaining other bind effects for as long as possible to maximize its effectiveness, so this condition did not have a significant effect.

In the January 27 update, while maintaining the above condition, we changed it so that if the remaining bind effect was shorter than 2 seconds, then Critical Bind would be applied with a duration of 4 seconds no matter when it was used.

For example, if a normal bind effect with a duration of 10 seconds was applied and Critical Bind was used after 9 seconds passed, previously the original effect was 9 seconds plus Critical Bind’s effect of 4 seconds for a total bind of only 13 seconds. After the change, after the full 10 second duration, Critical Bind’s effect of 4 seconds would be added for a total bind of 14 seconds.

However, during this change, we discovered an additional error and fixed it where if Critical Bind was used when the remaining bind duration was exactly 2 seconds, it would not add those 2 extra seconds.

We sincerely apologize for not being able to fully explain these details, and we have also changed the skill description to be more accurate.

      Yep they started actually releasing the full storylines in KMST this winter so it’s all out there. I haven’t done it myself but I’ve read a bit about it and its definitely super interesting (related to the Realm of Sages mentioned in other Grandis areas and jobs, the origins of the Angler Company, what lies ahead for the Adversary, etc)!!

          (obviously in Korean) Once it comes out next week, you can check this page, they usually include all the important story points:
          For now, they just have bits and pieces like on the page for Kalos, T-Boy, Angler Company, and Lepus.
