KMST V367 ~ Ice Knight
January 25, 2011 89 Comments
Hey there! There has been a few patches released in the test server that I didn’t mention about such as the Lunar New Year events.
I think version 367 is worth telling you.
On January 15th, the Super Fight content was added to the official server. Since then there has been a lot PvP skill adjustments to make it fair for everyone. Recently I got a score of 1000 in Survival mode. There’s an event going where you have to achieve certain scores and if you achieved those scores, you will be awarded with Larson Challenger Event items. The event items expire, but if you have done all the score quests and eventually achieved 1000, you will be awarded with one permanent Larson Challenger item.
I got a pendant, but it’s useless for me because I already have a Horntail Pendant.
I rather have the shoulder pad since shoulder pads are really hard if you have lag in PvP. ㅠ
Anyway, the Ice Knight mode has been added to the test server. ^^
Ice Knight has been added to Super Fight (PvP) which means it’s available for everyone.
To start Ice Knight mode, there has to be 10 players available in the map. The match has a time limit of 7 minutes.
When all 10 people enter the map, there’s a countdown from 3 till 0 and then the match starts.
When the match starts, someone will be randomly chosen as Ice Knight.
As a challenger, you have kill the Ice Knight with the other nine people in the map. There’s a blue HP bar that indicates the amount of HP that the Ice Knight has left.
As an Ice Knight, you have to eliminate the challengers.
The Ice Knight has an ‘ice gauge’, the gauge fills up when the Ice Knight attacks players.
Special attacks from the Ice Knight requires ice energy which can be obtained from the ice gauge.
▲ Ice Chop [Command: ↓ + attack key] : The Ice Knight swings his axe forward to hit and possibly stun many challengers.
▲ Ice Smash [Command: ↑↑ + attack key] : The Ice Knight transforms his axe into a giant sword and can smash and freeze many challengers.
▲ Ice Tempest [Command: ↓→ + attack key] : The Ice Knight can attack many challengers with a powerful force of ice, able to leave damage over time.
▲ Ice Panic [Command: ↓↑ + attack key] : The Ice Knight can cast a strong curse that’s able to transform challengers into snails.
Furthermore, the Ice Knight can double jump like the Wild Hunter’s jaguar.
Challengers are able to eat HP and MP recovery potions while the Ice Knight can’t. In all the matches that I’ve played, I have never seen an Ice Knight win. That’s bad in my opinion. I think the Ice Knight should be difficult to defeat and not just a mode that can be finished in 2 or 3 minutes…
The current Ice Knight mode in version 367 is probably the easiest AND fastest way to gain EXP.
I obtained 901,274 EXP with a score of 532. The score is bad compared to other people, because I lag.
That’s basically it. I really hope they’re gonna make it a tad difficult because it’s too easy.
You’re supposed to have fun when you’re playing in Ice Knight mode.
I had fun when I first tried it, but the fun quickly disappeared when I noticed it was easy. It has to be a challenge!
I think Nexon can pull it off..
There’s a new pet in MapleStory – the Persian Cat!
A cute pet? The fish in the cat’s mouth is a pet accessory.
Unlike other pets, the Persian Cat can automatically buff a skill for you! There are three pets in KMS that have the auto buff ability: Skunk, Scuba Duck and Persian Cat.
