KMS version 1.2.98 ~ Item rating & reinforcement system and more!

Currently the servers of MapleStory are down due maintenance. (patch)
The previous patch was the anniversary patch which was released on the 26th of April.

Today we’re getting another content patch in such a short time.
This patch will contain the anticipated item rating & reinforcement system and Chaos Zakum & Horntail!

Version 1.2.98 Update Preview (IE only)

The most awesome thing of this preview is that it says that the drop of equipment items will be 10 times higher and drop of scrolls 2 times higher!!

Well I have goofed around on Tespia with the item rating & reinforcement system and I discovered something funny.

I used an advanced potential scroll on this Maple hat and it gave me two potential abilities.
+2 STR and 10% chance of falling in love for 10 seconds.

Am I being clear? No?

The ”falling in love” part means that my eyes will turn into heart-shaped eyes without having the CS emote!
I did a quick search in the data and found out that you can get more ”Cash Shop” emotes from this astonishing system.

The normal potential scroll has a 70% chance of success, the advanced one has a higher chance of success.

You can get the regular and advanced potential scrolls from monsters or through Cash Shop.
Only Zakum, Horntail and Pink Bean can drop the advanced potential scroll, but if you’re not capable of slaying one of the three boss monsters then the only option left for you is cash.

The image above says you can get a regular potential scroll if you exchange five pieces of the Miracle Cube. ()

If you want the advanced potential scroll, you will have to exchange ten pieces of the Miracle Cube.
You get a piece for every reset you apply to an item with the Miracle Cube.
So let’s say that you want the advanced potential scroll? You will need to buy 10 Miracle Cubes and use it 10 times on an item!

The update preview said that one Miracle Cube costs 1,200 won and a bundle of 6 for 6,000 won.
You will have to pay roughly $10 for an advanced potential scroll… ;;

I doubt that someone has successfully defeated Chaos Zakum and Horntail in Tespia.
In the update preview I read about a change for these bosses.

Chaos Zakum

  • You can enter the altar of Chaos Zakum in channel 10
  • You must be Lv. 100 or higher to enter
  • The time limit for Chaos Zakum is 1 hour and 30 minutes (!)
  • You can enter with a minimum of six people. Maximum is 30
  • Price ▼

Chaos Horntail

  • You can enter the cave of Chaos Horntail in channel 15
  • You must be Lv. 110 or higher to enter
  • The time limit for Chaos Horntail is 2 hours and 30 minutes (!)
  • You can enter with a minimum of six expedition members. Maximum is 30
  • Price ▼

Aside all of that, MapleStory is going to release the Knights of Cygnus in mobile style~!
Before MapleStory DS, people could play MapleStory on their mobile, but it’s very limited.

Currently you can play on one of the Adventurers and soon the Knights of Cygnus job will be added to Mobile MapleStory. No doubt that Aran will be implemented in the future.

    You need an “I don’t like” button…
    I was expecting more news…. or clues about the mechanic job…
    Far as I’ve seen about it, looks nice

    But I do like the bg on the chaos zakum and chaos ht

  2. AlOnE says:

    MapleStory is almost pay2play in recent changes,I wonder how long will the game last if they keep implementing those thingy that need cash.

    OMG OMG DOWNFALL OF MAPLE LMAO

    • Luxeraph says:

      Well it hasn’t to be like that, I mean I have play a game that the cash users where almost vip accounts, but the way it was managed it wasn’t that big of a deal if you were a noncash user you could still get anything a cash user could get with some effort, nothing like the MTS, they used direct cash trades and since they saled the game currency in the cash shop there was no speculation on the cash user side.

      • thechazz says:

        uhm MTS is THE way for noncash users to get cash .. and all the items in MTS are items u can also get without use cash with putting in some effort…
        MTS is a good way to get nx without paying … just selling your stuff not for messo but for cash

        • Luxeraph says:

          It is indeed “THE way for noncash users to get cash” but its so broken due to its high cash tax(at leats here in gMS(whith nexon saying it was due to people using it as storage while not increasing by a lot the mesos needed to put anything for sale) that unless you get something that is worth more than 20M is quite hard to sell anything, since in most worlds is 1:10 and the minimun is 110=1m (some cheap scroll) but with the tax that adds 500, well i don’t think wost people would pay five times more for something and if the seller takes that in mind he/she then loses some money.

  3. Awesome! says:

    I’m sure a team of player will beat chaos zakum… but chaos horntail…

  4. sgtgrif says:

    I’m not liking those time limits O-O”

  5. Lucky says:

    The chaos zhelm and htp can level up?

  6. rauleli says:

    no info of new job -.-

  7. Bomber123 says:

    Oh wow, time limits.
    Chaos Zakum’s limit is fine, but chaos horn tail…

  8. Solarboy says:

    Well, the equipment rate seems to be one of the best things ever, it will be nice, but it kinda kills the purpose of the maker skill no?

    Im thinking of wonderking equips rate.

  9. FailedName says:

    I like zakum’s new background, it makes him seem more powerful

  10. Luxeraph says:

    Has HT always had that ugly outline?

  11. Alessandro says:

    The introduction of these “chaos bosses” is somewhat discomposing, I find. Nexon has failed to implement unique content once more by rehashing two bosses that were essentially superannuated years ago. It would appear that their method of propagating “new content” only appertains to what is essentially plagiarizing their own material, annexing minute components, and delivering them as “brand new,” as opposed to “improved, somewhat.” The “redesigned” Zakum Helmet and Horntail Pendant will surely retire the older models, and no one will be bothered to attempt fighting the original bosses, aside from running lower-level players who cannot wear the renewed equipment. Even so, that will also defect in due time.

    • Lionheart365 says:

      I like it. In the past zakum was a challenge and much more fun. They’re bringing this back.
      But the easy CS scroll stuff?
      **** you nexon. Maplestory is almost no longer free to play.

      Wow… I’m in shock. Was that an actually intelligent post from… from YOU?

      At any rate, I agree with what was said, I’m just caught off guard by who it was who said it…

  12. dennyvuquach says:

    To me, the time limit is the reason why Chaos Zakum and Chaos Horntail are insanely difficult. At least they give people more than an hour to fight, unlike Pink Been. But I’m still happy that I’m using Targa Hat on my Bishop until I level to 180 or more.

    • Ghost says:

      Imagine Chaos Pink Bean, you get half an hour to fight it with 5x the original HP and all of them get more stronger skiils

      • SlayerGhost says:

        Why do people keep talking about Chaos PB? What in hell makes people think that there’s going to be a Chaos version of a boss already so damn near impossible it might as well be? I mean, it’s only been killed once, ffs.

        • Ghost says:

          I’m thinking that Nexon if nerf the original PB or at least extend the time limit, then CPB would be harder than the current one.

          • SlayerGhost says:

            Again, why are people talking about Chaos PB when it’s only ben killed once? Your comment didn’t answer my question.

          • Ghost says:

            Because Pink Bean is part of the main-line bosses.

  13. Ghost says:

    What happen to the pirate getting this?

  14. Heavy says:

    The most awesome thing of this preview is that the drop of equipment items will be 10 ten times higher and drop of scrolls 2 times higher!!

    Is that permanent?

  15. Anonymouse says:

    Is there a limit to the number of abilities an advanced potential scroll will give to an item? Or could an advanced potential scroll say give 42 different features to an item? lol

  16. Alilatias says:

    Useless CS emotes from the potential scrolls? Ew. I hope it’s only limited to the advanced one, because I’d seriously rage if I got something like that heart emote instead of something that actually matters, like a +% HP bonus.

    On another note, those limits sound rather reasonable. I like the Chaos Zakum limit – it’s likely to make it difficult for groups to hold the altar (and attempt to extort all other groups) for extended periods of time.

  17. APersonWhoPlaysMape says:

    I just have one question, about POTENTIAL abilities. Since POTENTIAL abilities like the Falling In Love one, have chances, do things like str +2 also have a CHANCE of working? Please answer :D

    • Alilatias says:

      The STR +2 is automatic. The emote one specifically states in its description (and in its description only) that it has a 10% chance of triggering whenever you attack.

  18. Takebacker says:

    I think you mean you have to use the miracle cube 5 times on items to get an advanced scroll.

  19. KanesWrath says:

    … i bet after “chaos” zakum and horntail the will make “Advaned Beyond any mapler to beat bosses” (ye that will be their name) and they will have 10x the hp and 10x the dmg…
