KMS ver 1.2.133 ~ The Arrow of Speed

The final patch of the Jump! update. Adventurer & Cygnus Archers have their skills refined, system improvements and all Party Quests are renewed!
Every Archer is entitled to one SP reset scroll, you can only get it for a limited of time.

Recommended levels have been added to the Party Quests.
I have not tried out all the Party Quests yet.

Read more after the Jump!~

p.s. A poll can be found at the end of this entry. I ask for your vote.

These Party Quests are renewed and the first three are new.

- Ice Knight’s Curse: Recommended for Lv. 30~69
Kenta in Danger: Recommended for Lv. 120 and higher
Prison Break: Recommended for Lv. 120 and higher
Moon Bunny’s Rice Cake: Recommended for Lv. 20~69
First Accompaniment: Recommended for Lv. 20~69
Cracked Dimension: Recommended for Lv. 20~69
Forest of Poison Fog: Recommended for Lv. 70~119
Sign of the Goddess: Recommended for Lv. 70~119
Romeo & Juliet: Recommended for Lv. 70~119
Pirate Davey Jones: Recommended for Lv. 70~119
Resurrection of the Hob King: Recommended for Lv. 120 and higher
Dragon Rider: Recommended for Lv. 120 and higher

I’ve heard from friends and guild members that this revamp is a success because the experience gain is fast.
I myself tried out Resurrection of the Hob King Party Quest. What I noticed was that there are only three stages and Shammos walks a lot faster in the right direction.


[Alternative Link]

I gained 2% of experience in almost 5 minutes at level 164. I think that’s pretty good.
This Party Quest used to be very boring and Nexon did a great job renewing this one.

With the revamp, Nexon added a new system. The difficulty rate of the Party Quest depends on the average level of your party members.
For example, three Lv. 130 players can rush through the Party Quest with no trouble. But, if there isa Lv. 150 and 160 in the party, then the Party Quest will become difficult for the Lv. 130 players. The monsters and boss monsters will adjust to the higher leveled players.

The rewards from the Party Quests are completely changed. Better rewards are available. The rewards are basically an upgraded version of the original rewards.
When you talk to Shammos, there is an option you can pick. The option is if you want to obtain a reward.

Number 1,2 and 3 are upgraded Rex earrings. They have a level requirement of Lv. 120 and each color adds +8 STR,DEX,INT, LUK, +10% HP, +1 weapon/magic attack and +100 physical and magic defense.
The fourth option is the Rex’s Hyena mount. I was so happy to see this option, because now you can actually get it from Shammos.
There is a catch… For each upgraded Rex earring, you need to give Shammos 50 Proof of the Hob Warrior.

The Rex boss drops it and if one party member picks it up, everyone in the party will receive one. For the Rex’s Hyena mount, you need 300 pieces…
That means you’ll have to do this Party Quest 300 times. +_+
In case you are wondering, the bag is a Party Quest item bag. You can get it from a special quest that requires you to clear a Party Quest.
In this bag, you can store up to 8 Party Quest items. Proof of the Hob Warrior is one of them. I think other Party Quests have similar items in which you have to trade it for a reward.

Overall, even though I haven’t tried all Party Quests yet, I think Nexon is doing a great job with it. The Rex’s Hyena mount gives Battle Mages a mount they can have since the Resistance class doesn’t have one aside from the Wild Hunter.

There is a new notification system~
Let me first tell you what the five icons mean.
The lightbulb is for quests, the star is for events, the purple G box is from Deia’s G-Potion supply (new guild skill), the PC icon is when you are connected to a PC Room and the heart icon is for Item Pot.

The icons appear on the left side of the scrolls.
It’s an improvement, but now it’s hard to tell whenever I have a new quest available. I’ll get used to it. :)

A reminder to distribute your AP and/or SP has been added. It’s an exclamation mark.
What do you think? It’s great and all, but shouldn’t they have it added it way earlier?

The user interface of the medal collection has been updated. A few buttons have been added and everyone can now actually see your collection by clicking on your character info. They can see how many medals you have, how they look and what the stats are.
You can now sort your medals by name or date of acquirement.

Do you see that red button? If you tossed a medal away, it will register in your collection. However, now it is possible to get back that medal!
Yeah!~ However, I’m not sure if there are limitations. You have to pay meso and each time the fee goes up. You need to pay 1000 meso for the first medal.
Look in the image above, it says I need to pay 10,000 meso if I want my 3rd medal back in my inventory.
I have a Henesys Donor King medal, but that medal cannot be re-obtained for obvious reasons.

The main point of Jump! The Archer restructuring!
Nexon made some tweaks during the transition to the public server. Check it out~

Now here's a kid whose whole world gone all twisted, leaving him stranded on a rock in the sky.

  1. obvious man says:

    Really like the revision of the pq’s. Hope more people pq now.

  2. Ayako says:

    AWESOME UPDATES!!! i cant wait for come to GMS <3

  3. straighthook says:

    awesome!!!!!!

  4. A. Person says:

    Snipe GIF is broken, Spadow.
    Also, is the Proof of the [somethingorother] applied to all PQ’s now?
    If so, the pimp goggles are gonna be hard to get from the Aqua Road PQ, and same with the belt from LHCPQ.

  5. Le herpy says:

    Awesome :D

  6. PaCh says:

    wait, so the party quest got new versions? or did it change permanently?

  7. Renian says:

    Sigh, Warriors got the short end =/ Might ditch my Dark Knight for a archer now >w>

  8. Whitept says:

    So, we only get one book for free and gotta hunt the others (as in, get them from secret mastery books)?

  9. Jason Wang says:

    Cool, I’m 7th

    • TheXcited says:

      dont do that its really rude and annoying to everyone, either contribute to the discussi0on or dont post at all man

      • Peter says:

        sorry about that. :O I really love this patch cause i got my archer which was my frsit char. still levle 25 ahhahaha XD

      • 메이풀 서토리 says:

        Wad that framed
        Towards me?..,,,
        Why did i do
        If you find it annoying… Dont read it
        It’s for spadow anyway…

    • techboy says:

      spadow said that if this type of posting doesnt stop he will make it stop

  10. techboy says:

    certainly either archer or magician. now i think magician had best improvement as in from a to b was biggest(in dmg) but i think archer is best cuz of double jump and 160 speed+ major dmg upgrade

    • Chocolatey says:

      wow double jump is so much like flash jump lol

    • Oreo says:

      it’s a160 speed cap, they don’t auto get 160% they can just go past 140% if they have enough speed total and double jump is a height boost not distant meaning it is nothing like flash jump which is more distance than height

  11. Lambo says:

    ARCHERS GET PIMPED

  12. TheXcited says:

    personally i thnik mage cause he have yhad reaLLY goos upgrades which make our roles in the game more noticable like how AM got wya better attack power and bish got cool support skills . i think you should make a seperate post for the poll, doesnt really make sense to put the poll on an updates that only archer’s would read, it makes it biased
    GOOD JOB AS USUALL U ROCK!!!!

  13. Ghost says:

    I think we’re biased towards the latest improvements, especially since most of us hold the notion “the best come last” regardless if it is actually the best.
    I believe the heros have come out on top damage wise, after all I haven’t seen any skill that can top a 10000% damage (especially if advanced final attack stacks with it), although they do suffer with a lack of length.

    Although aside from job revamps and their events, I would choose part 3 to be the best, since a revamp for all PQs is sooo much better than a half of monster park.
    Although the bad part about the PQ revamp is when GMS gets it, they’ll probably revamp CWKPQ, which is bound to be a disaster…

    Too bad the new jobs will once again destroy the balance of power in the game….

    • Chocolatey says:

      wait do you mean the new archer hero?

      • Ghost says:

        I mean the ‘Hero’ adventurer, haha.

        Spadow, can you tell us anything more about the Saint Saver quests? You’ve mentioned it in part 1 of the patch but never gave us any details about it. Also does Nexon give you any guidelines on which medal can or can’t be re-obtained? (besides the obvious limit on the people who can have it)

  14. wintersouls says:

    3 classes down 2 more to go hope thief gets the next class revamp most likely out of all the skills id like to see some new skills for bandits to speed up training. next something new added to sins 3rd/4th job skills to make playing a hermit exciting again. and for heavens sake the time limit on shadow partner needs a increase in my opinion. im not much of a db fan but quite frankly their skills are still too overpowered so if anything was to change to them thats good but not really interesting to me.

    btw spadow have you ever tried any of the thief classes besides nightlord thats the only class i have seen in any of you’re videos

  15. OMG says:

    OMG IS THERE REALLY THAT MANY SERVERS IN KMS? OMGOMG

  16. Alilatias says:

    “The Rex’s Hyena mount gives Battle Mages a mount they can have since the Resistance class doesn’t have one aside from the Wild Hunter.”

    Actually… No. I heard Battlemages cannot use the Hyena mount simply because they don’t get the Monster Rider skill, unless KMS changed that recently.

    I voted Mages. Even though I’m an archer and think that Nexon did a great job with our Jump update (although they probably made us overpowered), Mages desperately needed a revamp for years now. They seem to be quite viable as all around attackers now.

    • Snowboy8 says:

      You are correct, in GMS, resistance can get and equips the hyena, but we cant use it since we dont get the monster riding skill. we can use CS mounts. BaM’s have tele and yellow aura which helps

    • Random Person says:

      What this post says, I’d have to say mages as well. Only specialty they ever had was fast lvling with blizzard/meteor ect. which was stolen and of course mages got shafted. Mages over all needed way more revamping out of all of the 3 that needed upgrades. Now all that i need to see happen is a pirate revamp, i want to see those knuckles hit harder.

    • wind archer 97 says:

      yes though i would have rather nexon not make archers over powered because that means nerfs in the near future and when you are playing a good char and sudennly it is mondo weak, you just kinda feel left out

  17. Ragoss says:

    Great job as always Spadow! I only wish they would develop a better system to party with people in pqs b/c in gms on my server it can still be hard to find other people to pq when no one wants to wait around for people to do it with. I think we need something similiar to instances in WoW where you queue up and it places people in a party together who put themselves in the list. Then you just go in by hitting accept in a prompt. That way we can still train while waiting, sadly I don’t think this would happen.

    • darklime says:

      I agree, they should make the queue thing so that when we’re training, we can go in and PQ or PvP when it’s available. It’ll probabl happen…in 5 years. xD

  18. tu76 says:

    spadow where do u find the time to set these great blogs up

  19. Balestre says:

    I have a few questions.
    1)Is the ring tradable?
    2)Do all the events only apply to archers created after the patch, or do some of them apply to all archers characters. For example, #1 is obviously for newly-created characters, but event #4 seems like it could be for all archer characters.

    • N0body says:

      Ring – Bowmen only = One-of-a-kind
      Cannot resell to merchants
      Account shareable
      Shareable once
      0 slots

      Credits to southperry

  20. Chocolatey says:

    yea spadow!! number 1! the skills are looking awesome can’t wait till hit gms.

  21. Randomizm says:

    Does this mean Pirates and Thieves don’t Boosted =(

    • Killmeplsok says:

      I guess not, maybe they’ll get boost in another patch(along with the archer legend/some other new jobs)?

    • Alilatias says:

      Every Jump patch has been released alongside other new content, such as Monster Park alongside Warrior Jump, Monster Park 120+ alongside Mage Jump, and PQ revamp alongside Archer Jump.

      I’d put my money on Thieves and Pirates getting revamps this summer, although one has to question the logic behind revamping pre-existing classes alongside the release of a new class. Or if not, the next two months won’t have anything to do with the new classes. (Either way, I wouldn’t expect these classes to be out for another two or three months anyways.)

  22. James says:

    I wonder what will be next voerall cause of the new hero , resistance and pirate… well i wont focus on KMS for a while ive been chosen for GMS tester and i need to focus more on GMS chos now, but i will also focus on KMS anyways.

  23. Richei says:

    hey spadow is it possible to get the archer ring when you’ve already made the advancement, because i already have an archer already and i dun wana delete it and make another one with the ring

    • Alilatias says:

      Make a new archer -> Get it to Level 10 -> place ring in storage -> take out ring on main.

      • Richei says:

        does it really work? i thought all adventurer rings were untradable

        • Alilatias says:

          They are account sharable through storage once. After you put them in storage and take them back out, you can’t put them in storage again.

  24. Is the ring tradable because I have an archer and I don’t want to restart it since it’s at bowmaster but 5% crit is really sweet

  25. Stonespoon says:

    Hey, Spadow, I was just wondering if you could possibly give me details on that Prison Break PQ? I’m asking because for an event, which was to design a new part of the game, I sent in something with that same name. Thanks in advance.

  26. Heartlessme says:

    Spadow, can you email me? I can buy you a top-level domain so like spadow.net etc. and set up WordPress for you on it.

  27. Bloodjedi says:

    Brilliant stuff Spadow! It’s great to see someone putting in a lot of hard work for complete strangers =3

    These changes are awesome!

  28. Zef says:

    Well..got mixed feelings on archer updates. I like the changes, more or less but i hate the skill animations…they’re not realy much of an improvement imho, especially snipe that should look more deadly. Take pierce for example – that sucker looks lethal and that’s the way it should be. But those new animations..bleh.

    Love the raising of max speed for archers – that’s a step in right directions, i would add more jump too. But flash jump? come on, i’d leave that to thieves.

    Generally i think warrior update is the best. Yes i know i’m not fair (pally player), but did you see charge blow and new charge animations? Most beautiful skill out there if you ask me.
    As for less eye candish reasons – warrior update pretty much did what others two didn’t – gave the classes a nice boost and new skills, yet didn’t turn them upside down and you still know warriors are warriors and what each one does best.

    • Oreo says:

      not flash jump; it works like wh 2nd jump thing, it’s for height not distant, theres a reason that wh had such a high speed and no jump, that’s why they had the double jump skill

      • Oreo says:

        and charge animations look rough and rugged, hurricane/rapid fire/ranger drain shot/albatross all look better imo

  29. Edatron says:

    The Archer revamp seemed more exciting and epic than the Warrior and Mage revamp. Thanks for the info Spadow!

  30. chickdigger802 says:

    gah. UI updates.

    Wonder how many more big updates before MS finally has widescreen aspect ratios…

  31. KousetsuTaz says:

    arans still are better x3

  32. test0rn says:

    i think archer updates are good but theres no HUGE change as for other classes. mages got more new skills and warriors have better looking skills. ok that archers get a fj like skill was about time…. but i still voted for mages coz before-after compare is 100% win while others just got better…. looking forward to see “new” classes which IMO are totally not needed…. i would prefere more content, bosses, pq’s AND guild pq2 or something ;)

  33. roro says:

    The Sniping skill animation is broken for me… Maybe it’s just in my computer but you should still look into it. If anyone else has that problem you should say it… At least i’ll know it’s not just me xDD

  34. Koffie says:

    I really love the changes, can’t wait to play with all the new skills myself when it gets here.
    One thing I don’t really like is the removal of Storm Break, I really liked that skill, shooting a Tornado that knocks back enemies<3
    But it'll be a while before it gets here so I can enjoy the skill while it lasts :P

    Btw did they also renew GPQ?

  35. ZsarasHeroes says:

    Lovin jump cant wait for the first warrior patch ;-) hmm which class shud i make since there all gud hehe

  36. LuffyBrawler says:

    Bah, majority vote is going to Archer just because it’s the newest piece of news and everyone is excited about it. Magician was definitely the most beneficial of the Jump updates. At least Warriors and Bowmen were still boss-worthy and could train at a good speed…. Magicians were almost entirely useless before this.

  37. Peter says:

    awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwsome

  38. Narwhol says:

    Do the effects from Dodge (3rd job) and Illusion (4th job) stack? As in, will BM’s now have 50% dodge or only 30% total?

  39. BattleMage says:

    even if their are new characters, i certainly wont quit my BaM, because it is my highest at 148, and That was an accomplishment for me since its my first 4th job char.
    + there might be less BaMs, in GMS Scania, (usually i only see 20 a day, all being lvl 100 and below, and 5 being 130+), so if there is less, than our ADA will become wanted even more (maybe). so yea thats my comment on me not making any new people, (unless its the thief hero). if i get something wrong, please correct me. Yes, i know this comment wasn’t needed, but i wanted to post something since i never do. lol
    Sincerely~ HobKing of Scania.
    oh btw spadow, if you read this. did you play GMS? cus i had yu as a friend back in 2006, and its still on my first characters buddylist.

  40. Random Person says:

    So much information -sprunger turns on-

    I just gotta see some pirate revamping. If i ever do i will be in a nerdgasm state in front of my computer for a while.

  41. that stuff looks cool for archers even though I dont really know much about them but I do like the new medal thing thats going to be useful

    I see theres some medals I wont get back cuz they was not added to the list but was given though quest but this is nice to know

    and yay for faster shamos

  42. Idiosyncratic says:

    Can that ring stack with adventurer rings and the other job-related rings?

  43. Axxez says:

    YESSS :D Thanks for taking your time to do this, Spadow! :)

  44. Ghost says:

    Apparently, Spadow you can post some stuff about GMS now, since we’ll be getting brand new content.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_xCr8SvS60

    Hopefully whatever it is, it will be as good as Masteria…

  45. Bob says:

    Hey Spadow can those Special 60% scrolls (The scroll adds +3 weapon attack, +3 DEX and +1 STR) be used on ANY item? or is it only specific to certain items?

  46. darklime says:

    Yup, Archers got the best updates while mages got shafted…again…

    Thanks for the info, Spadow! BTW, when you say the recommended Lv.’s for PQs are like from 70-119, does that mean 120+ can’t do it anymore or that it’s just recommended? (Knowing how Nexon words things). And I agree that Nexon should’ve put the notification system a long time ago, like right after beta/first few patches.

    • SlayerGhost says:

      How did mages get shafted? They are all ridiculously powerful now. Even Bishops. I don’t get it.

  47. craig says:

    unless the rex mount is released as a skill, battle mages cannot use it, since they never obtain the monster riding skill

    • dennyvuquach says:

      I think the Rex (Hyena) mount has its monster riding skill on its own, so Battle Mages can ride that mount.

      • Random Person says:

        They don’t even need a mount. Doing this is also kinda stupid. Rex’s hyena mount runs at 180% speed, the exact same as the Red Draco, or any lvl 200 mount. It kinda defeats the purpose of getting lvl 200, unless you want 2 maintain a lvl200 position in the rankings, or get echo.

        • Randon Stranger says:

          I must say, Its not everyone’s goal to get level 200 at all, or have the time and patience to train all the way there no matter how easy people say leveling is, it still requires a quite bit of patience… also i personally don’t like the Red Draco mount and its always good to have more options.

          Yet I don’t use my Mage anymore but when i used to, even having teleport, same for my thief having flash jump I got a mount because they just look so cool, It’s more a fact of personal likeness…

  48. HDex says:

    So pierce’s damage was upgraded and it still does more damage as it goes through each monster? If so, then I think the update was fair. This was mostly for bow masters not marksman but hey I’ll enjoy myself as an MM anyhow. Magician JUMP was the best by far. Though my bishop is only my mule now I will definitely enjoy it more. Also, since the HP and damage buffs are linked to a summon would that mean bosses can’t dispel them? If that were the case then there is no longer any downside to being a bowman. I say TAKE THAT to corsairs..

    • Alilatias says:

      Yeah, I guess they decided to buff Piercing as such because it needed to be worth using with that one second charge-up. Wish I could say the same for Big Bang, though.

      And yeah, it seems Spirit Link cannot be dispelled.

      • Random Person says:

        That’s the most OP part of it. No need for decent HB. Might as well toss ur pants that you spent billions on into the trash can.

        • Alilatias says:

          Do note that GMS is the only version with Level 70+ common pants, as far as I know. KMS developers don’t give a darn.

          I’m quite sure decent HB stacks with Spirit Link anyways.

    • Godly says:

      I won’t even have to fully charge it to break damage cap to 2.4 mil on the sixth monster…
      A full charge for me now (it’s level 21 so it’s only 1015%) hits just below 800k…

      Corsairs still have their revamp coming… you know Nexon isn’t going to just let Buccaneers stay the terribly-weak way that they are, and they’ll just revamp all the pirates while they’re at it.

      I wish they left Pierce at hitting twice at 750%… It would’ve been stronger for me… meh, thats okay.

  49. Cynter says:

    Well… like maplestory always does i think these updates will come in December for us in gms and something new for kms in December maplestory always does stuff like that.

  50. sammya says:

    “Overall, even though I haven’t tried all Party Quests yet, I think Nexon is doing a great job with it. The Rex’s Hyena mount gives Battle Mages a mount they can have since the Resistance class doesn’t have one aside from the Wild Hunter.”

    reffering to the BaM part i think itll get beginners a mount too (yes i am a lv 50 beginner) :)

  51. Chocolatey says:

    Does anyone know if soul driver may gotten stronger after chaos or jump?

  52. Frank says:

    Warriors needed some mobility skill IMO and perhaps a drain skill too or some HP healing skill for Heroes and Dark Knights

    • Godly says:

      Well then the Marksman should complain that we don’t have drain either… everyone should.

      And you have a mobility skill, it’s called Rush :)

  53. xlnsindit says:

    Tmd!!!!! Thief revamp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. Alex says:

    Hey spadow, I was wondering one thing about the other game your playing, dragon nest. Currently im awaiting its beta testing to see if i was selected but the question i have is, Does pvp give you experieince points or something to that effect?

  55. Nicholas says:

    So if I had the donation medal I can buy it back for 10k? :D

  56. Sarah says:

    Do you think a mage CD change will occur later?

    • Godly says:

      What mage CD? Mages already got a Jump! update, with a godly skill that has the same cooldown as Snipe, which is marksman’s ultimate.

  57. monblank says:

    what is that pc icon for? i know it says that you are connected from a pc room, but why maple have to remenber you that you are from a pc? you get a price from it? pc rooms maple players get better stuff than laptop players?? o.o

    • Spadow says:

      PC Rooms give bonuses and it’s always fast internet.

    • Alilatias says:

      PC rooms might be quite popular in Korea.

      Here in the US, though, not so much. They were probably popular here during the Counter-Strike days, but now, I don’t know any that still exist.

      I think they’re stores with a ton of computers that specialize in letting people come in and play whatever the heck they want.

  58. ipokesnails says:

    Hey Spadow, is that 160 max speed only applied to archers because of that skill, or the cap changed for all classes?

    • Alilatias says:

      Seems to be archer only for the time being.

      Don’t look at me, I’m an archer and I don’t get it either.

      • ipokesnails says:

        Yeah, I’m a 16x bowmaster and it does seem quite odd.

        • GrSniper says:

          It’s the skill that changes it.

          “- New skill has been added: Archer Mastery (1st Job) – Learn the basic techniques of an archer. Increases your accuracy, avoidability, shooting range, movement speed and the maximum speed limit.”

          • Alilatias says:

            We know what it does. It’s just that we don’t know the logic behind Nexon giving something like this to us in the first place.

  59. William says:

    Sorry to be of subject. But will we be able to make android gear after Chaos? And if so, will it be much easier to make the gear? Thank you.

    • Alilatias says:

      If you’re talking about Android gear as in those level 70 equips that require Iruvata Boosters… Those are GMS exclusive, so Spadow wouldn’t know anything regarding that.

      The main worry is that since Maker gets removed with Chaos, it may be impossible to forge any further Android equips. If it’s still possible, you’d most likely have to go with the Mining/Blacksmithing route to make them.

  60. William says:

    Well I think GMS is going to revamp masteria. Hopefully with the revamp crimson weapons an android gear will be much easier to acquire.

  61. heyy says:

    spadow
    when do you predict the next kmst patch will be?

  62. Rob says:

    Hey Spadow, do you have any clues on the new classes that appeared in the coding? im kind of dazzled about the dualbow – it seems like something so irreal that not even NX would try it :P

    Besides that, thanks for the great work you do!

  63. Ragoss says:

    Quick question about this update guys. What happened to all the phoenix and dragon pulse skill books. Did they book the new skills or just vanish and did points convert from old skills into skills, like what happened with afa for warriors.

  64. Dante says:

    So…Thiefs are last…what a let down.

    • Random Person says:

      Theifs have been #1 for a while. When i mean a while i mean a very long time, while pirates for that long period of time were treated like trash. It’s Pirates time to shine now.

  65. Victor says:

    Wait… What is that about Jump coming to an end… Does that mean they won’t revamp Thiefs and Pirates? Wtf? That’s so unfair omg… NL needs a serious update…

  66. Super Mario says:

    It seems that the party quests have the limit of level again @@?

    I think that it’s no good….

    Because some equips cannot be obtained if you over quests’ Recommended level…

  67. Maiya666 says:

    Is pheonix link stackable with hyperbody, or should I ask if hyberbody still exist after this patch?

  68. Bombardings says:

    Hey Spadow, or anyone else that can hlp me with my problem: If i make a bowman before the jump update, can i still get the special mastery book? cuz it looks so beepin sexy… :O

    • Alilatias says:

      From the looks of it, you can get special mastery books on pre-existing Archer characters.

      Good luck choosing which one you want, though. Just about every 4th job skill is useful in their own way, the main ones for Bowmasters being Sharp Eyes, Hurricane/SoA, Spirit Link, Advanced Final Attack, and Bow Expertise. For Marksmen, it’s Crossbow Expertise, Snipe, Spirit Link, Piercing (which looks like it can be jump spammed now) and Sharp Eyes.

      Mastery books for the already existing Bow/Crossbow Expertise, Piercing/Hurricane (the 20 versions of both skills are just about non-existant), and Sharp Eyes are already expensive enough as it is.

      As someone who is already well on the way to maxing Bow Expertise and Sharp Eyes, that cuts down my choices to Hurricane, Spirit Link, and Advanced Final Attack. Choose wisely.

  69. Escy says:

    Anybody think they should change the Summoned birds looks when whne using Spirit Link

    • Alilatias says:

      They don’t need to. The bird summons are already the best-looking summons in the whole game. Spirit Link also has sort of an ‘aura’ effect when the birds are summoned as well.

  70. lostinmaze says:

    Hi spadow,

    I have heard that mechanic and wildhunter will be made worse during these updates?

    is that really? me and my friend just bought billions of skill books, equips, potentials, cubes in making these two jobs…..and left our 15x bishop and 14x ice mage…..

    …this is painful….

    • Alilatias says:

      Mechanics and Wild Hunters don’t get nerfed.

      Jump just makes the other classes catch up (or in the case of Archers, outright surpass them).

  71. jumper001 says:

    Hello, I have a question.

    The Archers’ Special Mastery Book that increases the skill level to 30 at a 100% success rate. Do you know if those are tradable or untradable?

    Thanks =D

  72. NewBeginning says:

    Oh, wtf? Shouldn’t Wild Hunters count as a type of archer? If so why weren’t we rebuffed :(

  73. Coro says:

    We shall be missing you, Spadow. D':

  74. yichinoob says:

    no matter hot strong bowman can be ill ks them

  75. Anuj says:

    Wait im confused but does it mean that anyone below lvl 120 cant do hoblin pq anymore or does it mean it is recommened to be at that lvl? And does that also mean that pqs will have a max lvl limit now, cuz i enjoyed when the lvl limit for a pq was 200.

  76. QQ says:

    thieves need some serious buff, especially sins, they have NOTHING special now. nexon is bs

  77. BoomRanger says:

    Wait,so if Phoenix is a 3rd job skill now,is silver hawk still necessary?and also,probably a stupid question,but is fire shot inferno?

  78. kiddo says:

    sorry.. but anyone can form.. which skill changes into which new skill? for example the skillbook of concentrate is now >> ?????

  79. Randoms says:

    So now thunder breaker ae now the slowest due to the fact every cyngus besides thunder breaker HAS a mobile skill at 2nd job

  80. Jason says:

    sure GMS coders are catching up to KMS.
    but their security to KMS is 20 years behind.
    Hackers, Dupers, Scammers everywhere lol

  81. Kimi says:

    ok I’m a bit confused, will they wipe out our entire stats on our skills so we can get new ones and just remake our skill stats? or does it only apply to archers that are newly made? cuz i want those skills~ but i also have some skills that are maxed and are being taken off and im wondering if i will get compensation for those…

  82. alan says:

    Does the times you did the pq reset (ex. 95 times completed current) when it gets revamped or does it say the same( ex. after revamp; 95 times completed).
