KMS ver. 1.2.377 – Mapril Island (Part 2)

May 18, 2023 10 comments

This patch is basically identical to the test server in terms of changes and content (boss set tradeability & Symbol improvements). It also has some extra events for the second part of the 20th anniversary, Mapril Island.

Since I didn’t write the post myself for part 1, I’ll mention some cool things I noticed. Other than the event map itself having tons of easter eggs and throwbacks to past anniversary events (including being able to visit a lot of the old maps!), there’s a cool theme with the Mapril spirits. The main NPC is named Amely Ports, which I thought was a really weird name at first, but it’s actually an anagram of MapleStory! The other spirits (Mariella, Apricia, Plana, Leona, and Emma) are coloured the same as the five job icons, like in the Maple Union UI, and their initials spell out MAPLE. I hope this makes up for me not realizing that the Momentree NPC names were referencing Lith Harbor and Ellinia, which someone pointed out to me last month lol.

I know some people were a bit disappointed but personally I’m a big fan of this anniversary! The coin capping is extremely fast (1.2k mobs), the skill they added in this patch specifically is amazing for experience, the rewards are a lot better than previous events (three Maximum Growth Potions just from the daily attendance), the shop cosmetics look really good, and Dungeon/Frozen Blast was a hit of nostalgia.

The next official server update on June 15 will be the first patch of New Age, but we won’t get any information until the showcase on June 10, so the test server patch won’t be available until right after that. They’re going to start releasing teasers (including posters and music) in a few days though so maybe we can get an idea of what will be happening sooner!

KMS ver. 1.2.372 – MapleStory Savior: Fairy Wonky’s Wongstaurant!

December 22, 2022 13 comments

The first patch of the MapleStory Savior update has been released! It includes various improvements to the overall growth experience, the Star Force system, and many skill changes. The main event for this winter, Fairy Wonky’s Wongstaurant, has also begun!

I tried out some new things in the post including anchor links to/from the overview, which I think will be pretty useful. Also I decided to stop covering Cash Shop updates since the rotations are never the same for every version lol. However, I’ll still add the more important information such as new Master Label/vac pet rotations and things like the BLACKPINK collaboration.

KMST ver. 1.2.143 – Cygnus Remaster Skill Changes

June 24, 2022 16 comments


A new test world patch was released as scheduled, with some more changes to the Cygnus remaster skills, as well as the updated story. The patch also includes more QoL improvements and the events we will be getting (which will be covered next week).

Shortly afterwards, the director Won-ki did a live video on YouTube addressing some of the main complaints people had with this patch, such as the new Hyper Burning event’s rewards being lackluster and the new Cygnus voices being too meme-y and bad.
