Goodbye February, hello March!

Goodbye February! You were a short month, but you gave us something really cool.
Hello March! Do you think you can handle the big update that’s coming to MapleStory?!

I’ve been doing some  Time Temple quests and it’s going good right now.

It’s a good thing that Final Cut (4th job skill)  was given a cooldown of 100 seconds.
This skill doubles your attack for 60 seconds when it’s maxed.

Chain Hell is a skill similar to Demolition of Viper. You can use this skill only in Dark Sight, when used, it will grab one monster towards you (similar to Snatch) and attack the monster for 12 times. 24 times with Mirror Imaging on.

Sudden Raid. Ah… At level 1 it does not consume a lot of MP, but when it’s maxed it will use 980 MP.
600% damage and attacks 15 monsters. Not bad.

Dummy Effect. You can summon a dummy of yourself only when you have Mirror Imaging on.
Your alternate self will separate and be a dummy.
Monsters will attack the summoned dummy, but your dummy has a certain value of stamina. Once that value has been reached, your dummy will disappear.

This skill works like the Puppet skill of a Ranger.

    spadow can u upload video of your dual bladder in training? do u play both kms and msea?

  3. Yorckie says:

    Every skill looks awesome! What’s the first one? O_O

  4. dudeslash says:

    final cut?

  5. Jacky says:

    Final cut looks ugly.

  6. Pelipro says:

    I expected the ‘Sudden Raid’ skill to come from the ‘remixed Archer’ class, but ah well.

  7. The New Guy says:

    Spadow is there a required level to make a dual blade?

  8. Bownissley says:

    what is windowed mode??

  9. SwordStaker says:

    I thought NEXON Korea promised us new high level training areas.Come on, I’m sick of hearing the higher levels whine about how they have nothing >.>

    Also back when Aran came out in NAMS my friend said this:MapleStory is going to get worse before it gets better.

    Looks like its going that way…

  10. Blooper says:

    Spadow could u make videos of the Dual Blade job advancments?

  11. Snow says:

    Thanks for clearing up the final cut buff thing, I was wondering what it was.
    60/100 seconds of 2x dmg is still insane. :]

    Spadow, could you upload a video about how dummy effect works? Is it just a carbon copy of puppet, or is there more damage reduction?

    Also, I take it that you lose mirror image when you cast dummy effect and cannot cast mirror image until the dummy is gone?

    • Spadow says:

      You lose your mirror image right after your dummy separated from yourself. You can cast Mirror Imaging, but your dummy will disappear.

  12. Takebacker says:

    Anything about how thorns works?

  13. WOW!!!…I voted new how level maps….
    I hope they do add stuff like PVP and also new places in the maple world..

    Keep up the good work Spadow

  14. joeloveslego says:

    Spadow, are you Korean?

  15. zy says:

    joeloveslego :
    Spadow, are you Korean?

    Alot of idoits ask him before check his reply at the other posts

  16. Zach says:

    This job is like a super copy cat of other jobs. Nexon seriously ran out of ideas.
    Mirror Image = Shadow Partner
    Dummy Effect = Puppet
    Chain of Hell = Snatch + Demolition
    Final Cut – 2x Dmg Buff = Corkscrew Punch
    Sudden Raid = Mage Ultimates – Long delay
    Thorns = Sharp Eyes
    Upperstab = Final Toss
    Flying Assaulter – Jump = Dragon Thrust

    So what? They’ve taken all the good from the other jobs, gotten rid of the BS (Especially from Evan), and made it awesome. What’s wrong with that?

    • Bownissley says:

      um maby a job that is too good…

      • Secun says:

        This is where the whole “limited creation period” thing comes in.

        • Alilatias says:

          Limited creation period is a [censored] method of “balancing”, and you all know it.

          If you’re going to compare damage between a Dual Blade and any other class, will the fact that Dual Blades are limited make any changes to individual damage comparisons? No.

          All it does is limit the amount of people that play this so-called overpowered class. Even then, this method of limiting won’t mean much in the long run in terms of whatever crap meaning of “balance” they have. This is especially considering that it appears that many are planning on making accounts full of Dual Blades and selling them all later for profit.

          Seriously, if they were going to make a class be this powerful and be limited at the same time, they should have done a Level 100+ character requirement instead.

          They could still make sales off 2x cards (assuming KMS has 2x cards) from people leveling up characters to 100 so they can unlock Dual Blade, and they wouldn’t have to worry about as many people selling accounts behind their backs.

  18. DestinyThief says:

    I want the 3th legendary class in the big march patch ;D

    i like the legendarys
    oyeah and i wish that the Dual Blade job is a no time limit class

  19. Frost says:

    Spadow u dont play anymore kms?You only play KMS(T)?
    Its me FrostDagger xD!

  20. lol ^^ says:

    Black magican connected class, could it be black wings, like job? :D
    Maybe new maple world places(there is still place at bottom of map) xD Can’t w8!

  21. addictedtoms says:

    spadow isnt it like very unlikely to have 2 jobs in 2patches with no patches in between
    FYI i voted for high lvl training spots

  22. tnextg says:

    i voted PvP cuz they really should put it

  23. Alilatias says:

    I’m more interested in wondering when the content of this supposed big patch is released in KMST. If we’re lucky, we might see it all later today (read: in the middle of the night for us living in the United States).

    Sounds like a good idea to me. Keep in mind, Nexon America has been known to stray away from small aspects that KMS has implemented ( A good example being The ill-fated Mu Lung Dojo).

  25. Brandon says:

    @Spadow Or any1

    Can someone explain is Sudden Raid Spammable like over and over such as the 4th Job Mages.

    And my other question is when u first get ur 1st job adv do u start with 25 dex base no matter what?

    Ty in advance

    • Alilatias says:

      Sudden Raid is spammable.

      I would think that you also start with 25 base DEX no matter what, although this is going off of the logic that you would have that much DEX because you start as a 1st job Rogue with half of the standard skills. You’ll have to wait for Spadow to answer this if you want a concrete answer though.

      …Besides, I would imagine that going DEX-less on a Dual Blade isn’t really worth it anyways, seeing as the Blades have the normal DEX requirements.

    You mean rush for flying assaulter

  27. I got something random to ask..
    Is the balance patch done and if not…Do you think bishops will get balanced??

    Man this big patch is making my head spin I cant wait to see what happens….

  28. Enquirer says:

    What happen to the price of Dagger for ATT scrolls after the launch of Dual Blade?

  29. SwordStaker says:

    Is it going on now?Or do we still have to wait a little more?

  30. Anubis says:

    I know many here voted for PVP, but in a old interview with GMs of BMS ( Brazil MS XD) they said that there will never be a PVP ’cause Nexon wants to keep the general rating on the game. So, very likely, this will continue. Probably the March’s patch will be another frustation for everyone. Enjoy it! =D

  31. XinwxHleak says:

    I really hope they DON’T bring out PVP it would kill NAMS’s economy and make the douches in NAMS even more cocky then ever… High level training maps would be good also maybe level 70ish-120 type mini dungeons, as we all should know by now dissapointment is a garentee, a new job would be cool

    OT : i voted dissapointment

    • Snow says:

      NAMS = what, GMS?

      • Alilatias says:

        NAMS = GMS.

        It’s a rather uncommon way to refer to GMS, but it’s been gaining in popularity ever since EMS and BMS were formed (and everyone living in Europe and Brazil were kicked out of GMS by IP ban).

        • TehFrancis says:

          Not entirely true. I’m European and I still play GMS. The thing with this block is that no new accounts from outside North America can be registered, but the old Global players are still allowed to stay there. We just can’t make additional accounts.

  32. Alilatias says:

    TableSUN:

    “WHats this crap?
    It wont have any point…
    Cause everyone in maple is like 100+”

    Really? There are plenty of people who don’t have a Level 100+ character yet. Suggesting that -EVERYONE- here has a Level 100+ character seems like leecher mentality at this point.

    Also, note that I am primarily talking about KMS at this point, in which being at a higher level in KMS means a lot more than it does in other versions (due to KMS not having the reduced EXP curve and broken equips/cheaper pots of the other versions).

    • Alilatias says:

      …Although now that I think about it, 100 might be too low. Perhaps 120?

      Either way, I know that what I’m suggesting still isn’t good enough if we want TRUE balancing. Limits on character creation does nothing that actually makes a so-called overpowered class become balanced in the long run.

    • Takebacker says:

      KMS is years older than GMS, so they do indeed have many many more high levels than GMS does.

  33. Alessandro says:

    Wait did u guys say that the third legend is cummin out in the March patch? what day, whats the name of it, and why is it cummin out before duel blade and evan on GMS if they were advertised WAY earlier?

    • Alilatias says:

      …We’re talking about KMS. Some Q/A sessions were held by Nexon of Korea back in December, promising us that KMS will get a HUGE patch in March. By huge, they appear to have said something like ‘Training areas for Level 100+ people’ huge.

      It’s March now, and we’re anxiously waiting.

  34. SlayerGhost says:

    Alilatias :What about the Mu Lung Dojo? I thought the Mu Lung Dojo of GMS is the same as it is in KMS.

    KMS changed the PG formula to be based on ACC to avoid people leeching in the Dojo, but GMS just put a lvl difference restriction.

  35. Voltaire says:

    아이크….스파도님 일반서버 더해요 그럼 테스피아더 해요?

  36. SlayerGhost says:

    Secun :Really? Never noticed that. Then again, I don’t normally play Heroes, so meh. Still seems pretty stupid to me.

    I didn’t know Heroes had it… O_o. I was thinking Pages…

  37. TehSage says:

    Maybe what Nexon will do is release little content but require a huge patch which contains materials needed for future patches?

    Meh, pretty much is a whole new region. OR ‘Singapore & Malaysia’ since they’re awesome for mid levels o_o

    P.S. I hope they stop doing the limited edition craps.. what a waste of resource.

  38. SwordStaker says:

    Patch pl0x =(

  39. dotdot says:

    If this is limited then Nexon’s game data is like a library.Looks like too many books are filling those sheleves.

  40. Ghost says:

    What day is the new high leveled content coming to KMST?

  41. Dic3Headed says:

    LOL i wonder if they will release a black mage job dhen maple will be flooded with black mages =D
