KMST V326 ~ Just one more…

Yeah~~~~! MapleStory is currently under maintenance (patch) and will be up very soon with hopefully no extensions.
I will blog tomorrow about the new patch in KMS~

KMST was updated just before the official patch goes live.

A few significant things were changed in this patch: skills, items and the EXP given by a lot of monsters has been decreased.

EDIT: Patch has been extended by 2.5 hours. OTL

Finally the Buddy list, Party, Expedition, Guild, Guild Alliance and Blacklist windows were updated.
I don’t like this because it’s much more smaller than the previous UI.

We finally get chat tabs. Hooray~!

Two new items:

Time Traveler’s Laurel
REQ LV: 105
STR: +5
DEX: +5
INT: +5
LUK: +5
Magic Defense: +180
Weapon Defense: +180
HP: +180
MP: +180
Accuracy: +400
Slots: 7

Ludibrium Cape
REQ LV: 115
Magic Defense: +43
Weapon Defense: +48
Accuracy: +420
Slots: 5

Remember! These are NEW items. Your existing Ludibrium Cape will not have 420 accuracy. You’ll have to earn the new one. How? I don’t know. Maybe they will replace the old items with these two.

”info.addition.critical.damage 10” was removed from the Adventurer’s Critical Ring. I don’t know why this was removed.

    Why are they changing things with one day left?

  2. cookie4mesos says:


    New Crusher, Fury, and ‘Dark Force’ animations are sexy.

  3. MrYelnats says:

    So adventurer rings no longer add any critical damage?

    • SwordStaker says:

      CRITICAL ring no longer gives CRITICAL damage. What afail.

      • andrew says:

        lol. cruel rings and the other mage ring should have 0% crit and make crit ring have 5% crit cuz cruel ring get 3 wep att 1 mag att while critical ring still has 2wep att 1mag at… lol o-o

    • Luxeraph says:

      *A day has passed since the big bang first part was realesed and kms forums and tickets are flooded by angry players raging because the once useful critical ring has been made useless, what will nexon do?*

    • Chibi says:

      HOLY CRAP >,,< Glad i started a sin for my 2nd ring, now time to grind from lv30 to lv50….5 days left…do i have TIME?!?!?!?!?

  4. ilovebubu says:

    Yay for Buccaneer updates I hope they don’t decrease it again. :D

  5. MrYelnats says:

    Hmm…. this may actually reach GMS within the year.

    • Zacairga says:

      It WILL. November or December, most likely. If it comes any sooner then Lord help us, Nexon is gonna fail.

      • Alilatias says:

        GMS. The only version whose fanbase does not want stuff to come much earlier than expected, because that usually means Nexon is going to bombard us with CS-related changes to hell and back.

        • Luxeraph says:

          That and a bunch of glitches bugs and errors in the coding that could have been avoided if they took their time to test it properly.

  6. joey says:

    by how much was the exp decreased like 10 points es monster (i hope) or like 100 points -_-

  7. Volt says:

    yay! big bang in T minus 2 hours 30 min!

  8. Yorckie says:

    Spadow, how do you get the skills animations/effects? Are they just on the .wz files and you extract them? Simple as that?

  9. Leon says:

    there realy nerfing paladins IMO

  10. Inferno says:

    Yes!!!! Finally they make phoenix worthy of being used at higher levels as it will stun.

    • Zacairga says:

      It’s not worthy at all. You realize how long a second is? Snap your fingers. A second just passed.

      • Alilatias says:

        Agreed. Phoenix stun needs at least three seconds for it to be any effective. I’d be much happier if they allowed it to inflict critical hits though. Hell, give crit to the Mage summons too, while we’re at it.

        • FailedName says:

          You do realize that a stunned monster breaks out of stun once it is attacked, right? Stun (though it has its moments) Is pretty useless unless you plan on waiting a second before attacking the monster again.

          • Zacairga says:

            Really? Cuz on my shadower the stun is broken by attacks, but strangely, it isn’t on my Ranger. I guess I’d have to go with what has happened on my Ranger.

            Either a way, a 1 second stun is 100% useless, no matter how you look at it.

          • Alilatias says:

            Attack a stunned monster with ranged attacks = stun is not broken.
            Attack a stunned monster with melee attacks = stun is broken.

            Intentional or lousy programming by Nexon? You decide, but this is something that Buccaneers have been ticked off about for quite a while now.

          • FailedName says:

            Oh wow, I was unaware of this… I take back what I said?

          • Fan says:

            It’s pretty annoying all right.

      • Jacky says:

        The bird attacks every second. Frostprey freezes for one second, and you don’t see marksman having trouble with it.

  11. Snowcone says:

    can you post the pirate lucky dice skill images or even a video of them? Im very excited for them! :D Thanks for the updates

  12. Tyler says:

    After all these new skills buffs/nerfs…Evans don’t look as great as they did before…I hope I don’t regret making one after this. Now I really want to go back to explorers.

  13. YAY Magic Mastery! WOOT!,
    Hmm cool Ludi cape and yay a new Time Travelers circlet neat!

    Thank you for posting….Thank gowd I got the Cruel ring

    • Zacairga says:

      I’m in love with that other helm… The +18 to all stats one. The Time Traveler’s circlet is as useless as the dungeon you get it from.

      • Keitau says:

        Wow ur like constantly making people feel bad about everything oh and are u talking bout ravana, zakum, or scarlion helms?

        • Zacairga says:

          What did I say to make him/her feel bad?

          I’m not talking about any of the helms you just listed.

          • tori says:

            i think your talking about that hat that gms had a few months ago, the one where u needed to get X amount of items (the lvl up event) i think it was somthing like ravan dana

          • Zacairga says:

            I just specifically said I’m not talking about that helm…

            My God, is it really so hard to comprehend that I MIGHT be talking about NEW stuff? <__<

  14. TheP4nda says:

    Chat Tabs! WOOT, i hope there is one without megaphones…

  15. Raffaello Greco says:

    Hm, I was so hyped about DB but I decided to resist the temptations to make one. I’ll have to wait for Battle Mage and Wild Hunter. BTW do they need nx for some skills? Please answer my question.

    • joey says:

      i dont think it matters if they need nx for skills in kms cus even if they dont gms can put mastery books in the cs like evan D:

      • Raffaello Greco says:

        Very true. But I just wanted a heads up. I’ve been scouring the internet for an answer and haven’t found anything. If it requires nx in KMS then it’ll require nx in GMS for sure. If it doesn’t require nx in KMS then we don’t know. If it does require nx, this’ll be the first time i’ve spent real money on maple.

        • Zacairga says:

          It doesn’t require any NX so far, so more than likely it won’t.

          • Ghost says:

            When you say “so far”, you’re talking about KMST right?
            (at least almost) Everything in the KMST CS is free…

          • Zacairga says:

            Yeah. Dual Blades showed that they needed stuff in KMST, and Resistance isn’t, so chances are KMS won’t need NX. From what I hear from the KMST players, the only free stuff there is the stuff that’s new.

            It’s up in the air on whather or not it’ll cost money in GMS, though. I’m pulling for them to be CS exclusive classes, purely for laughing purposes.

  16. Sean says:

    What’s the point in lowering the EXP to next level, if they lower the EXP you get? Why not just leave it the same? That’s like everyone lowering their prices of items, but also everyone gets $3 taken off their hourly wage. :/

    • Keitau says:

      Actually it’s not like tht and WTF are u saying did u see the exps required to lvl even with exp reduced ppl can easily lvl unlike now.

    • Alilatias says:

      1) People could be leveling too fast. Did you know that during this whole time, the EXP rate of Tespia was 1x? People like ShiKage of SouthPerry were able to train a new character from Level 1 all the way to 10x in the past three weeks. With no 2x card. Or leech.

      2) They’re probably going to introduce quests that give a significant amount of EXP, and the developers may not have wanted grinding EXP to surpass quest EXP (when measured over the time it may take to complete the quest).

      The second part is speculation though.

      • Zacairga says:

        Grinding exp already does surpass quest exp though…

        Seriously, the ONLY reason people did quests was for collective purposes and for that medal, and when Master Adventurer came out nobody even bothered anymore.

        I think it’s more than likely the first one. The exp is ridiculous. At lvl 74 you can lvl by killing a whopping… seventeen windraiders on 4x. That’s insane.

        • Alilatias says:

          And 68 Windraiders on 1x. Which is still absolutely insane, that’s like 3 cycles through Lower Ascent, if not less.

          Oh man, everyone’s going to go KS each other to hell and back on Crimsonwood Mountain if Nexon America leaves everything as is.

          • gamester47 says:

            I have a feeling nexon is going to butcher the hell out of masteria and cwk when gms gets the big bang update…. theirs no way they can leave it as is with the new exp cure.

          • Zacairga says:

            Lul, partying is almost gonna be required. Strength in numbers when defending your map. xD

  17. Ghost says:

    Look at them’s Accuracy!

    There must be one hell of a Accuracy formula now, since most regular jobs could easily get over 1k Acc with those two items.

    Speaking of Accuracy, is the stat-to-Acc formula still the same? (1.25 dex = 1Acc, and something similar with luk)

    But the Crit rings…. I already got one of them on my main and was about to obtain another….. is this jsut a weird glitch? are they seriously just gonna take out the main reason we got the ring? are they planning to at least compensate the players who have it?

    • Luxeraph says:

      Maybe they’ll make it a 5% att ring :P

      • Ghost says:

        But where’s the Critical in Critical Ring?

        Btw that would be more helpful than the cruel ring for anyone with a total weapon attack over 60 (which is a majority of players)

        • Zacairga says:

          Poor crit-ringers. I’d be livid. Luckily, I went with the Cruel ring.

          • Ghost says:

            I’m going to get my mule character up to level 50 and wait as long as I can for KMS to reveal an improvement on their Critical Rings…

        • Luxeraph says:

          Critical raise in attack xD idk I was just playing around since I would also be mad if they took the critical away from the critical ring (my main is a ranger), unless they took the critical rate but raised critical damage by 50% or something.

    • Secun says:

      Judging by that line, they’ve taken out the critical damage, but not the rate.
      I imagine they’ll just use it to boost crit rates, because seeing as most 3rd/4th job skills already have a built in crit rate/dmg bonus, the ring’s damage bonus would be useless.

      tl;dr Crit dmg+: no, Crit rate+: yes

  18. enoch says:

    gosh….Nexon fix the itemization for end game…everyone will still wearing BR till lv 200..
    Give item stat bonuses for reverse armor to make it worth while to equip..

  19. DAggers says:

    Gawd, i hope they will make a new ludi cape..but not design the old one..
    Coz i throw it oredi..T_T
    Magic Mastery? A new skill?

  20. DAggers says:

    Magic Mastery? A new skill?

  21. Emenia says:

    Spadow, regarding the critical ring, have they just removed the 10% increase in critical damage? So the 10% likelihood of a critical is still in effect? Would a cruel ring be better than a crit ring now?

  22. Volt says:

    chat tabs ftw!~ reminds me of everplanet

  23. Ghost says:

    I checked Fiel’s extraction, it seems there’s one more hat you missed, it looks very familiar to the wild wolf bandana, close-to-same stats too. Perhaps for a level up event?

  24. PureRise says:

    Just curious, since I’m a Drk myself, does the red crusher that you got at 120 still exist? Does that mean that you will have Blue at 70, red at 120, and that new purpleish one at 150?

    If so thats one of the coolest little animation changes I’ve ever seen lol.

  25. BuddyAran says:

    Is the patch over or still extending???

  26. X says:

    dang bucs recive the lowest boost from crtic since its a + x% instead of a multiplyer.
    guess thats why they changed paladins attack into 3 lol.

    really wana see lucky dices animation f5 i hope its good

  27. KobeKun says:

    epic new ludibrim cape

  28. Salmonility says:

    Hmmm. Seems like majority of KMST is playing adventurers. The lack of hero and resistance buffs/nerfs could be indicating a neglect of heroes and resistance or nexon thinks they are balanced. But considering Aran and Evan currently being in the lower tier of dpm in KMST I think Nexon wants heroes catergory to be removed.

    • Ghost says:

      I highly doubt the last part, in the Big Bang info convention in Korea, a person asked about the remaining 3 heroes. They answered that they will be released next year in order to continue the plot.
      This also shows that Alilatias’ theory of a hero/resistance character is probably not possible,

  29. Alpha says:

    All these changes, and I/L STILL don’t get any animation changes/updates? They should really update all these skills because some skills still look horrible :(

    • Zacairga says:

      The skills look fine the way they are.

      • Alpha says:

        Not really, they look very… basic compared to other skill changes like F/P Fire Arrow. They should really update all the skill animations (like they did with Heal, which now looks a lot better.)

  30. Alilatias says:

    I found this image over at Insoya last night.

    FA works with Hurricane/SoA. Hello brokeness?

    • Zacairga says:

      Lmao. I saw you posted that on SP. 200% Hurricane that activates FA without no delay…

      Hurricane went from being a light machine gun to a gatling gun.

      It costs 400 thousand dollars to fire this weapon… for twelve seconds.

      • Keitau says:

        lol i like the new hurricane. at least us archers have one skill tht make us unique and works kinda like an ultimate

      • Secun says:

        Hah, Hurricane is gonna be doing some insane damage.

        I am heavy weapons guy!

    • Luxeraph says:

      Good they’ll give us SP resets, when I use it I would max FA since now it doesn’t look so useless, though I wonder what it will do to stuff like AR/AE (FA rain xD)?

      • seralyn says:

        not a good idea. the fact that this glitch is obviosly broken would suggest itl be fixed, wasting sp on fa for this would be a reeeeeeal bummer

        • Alilatias says:

          The skill levels of the Archers’ 2nd job skills were altered so much, to the point where we will get enough SP to max EVERYTHING in 2nd job and still have 1 (or 2) SP points left over.

  31. iRyahn says:

    LMAO wdf happened to Crit ring? Anyways do cruel rings still crit/add crit damage and can a KMS player confirm this please xD

  32. BuddyAran says:

    Some questions I need to clarify, from the 1st Big Bang updates patch in KMS (Not KMST) (If you think its important for all of us post it in your next post)

    1) If most of the mobs level has increased, will the level requirement for most of the quest changed drastically? Also, will there be removal for max level restriction for PQ-related quest?

    2) Has the monster book been reset, or remained the same but changing the details of the monster (HP, EXP, ect)

    3) Has the drop rate of rare items from a certain mobs (Like Napendeath Honey, Flaming Feather, ect) changed too?

    4) What’s the damage capacity now in KMS? 500K or 999K? (This is because I found a video of a Marksman snipe King Slime with 500k damage)

    5) Which of the PQ is currently not in the Portal of Dimension list?

    If I have more questions I’ll post it later. Thanks and enjoy the new updates~~~

    • Spadow says:

      1) I don’t know, I haven’t played the game yet because of the extensions!
      2) Monster Book feature has been disabled for now.
      3) No idea.
      4) I also don’t know, I thought it was 999k, but it’s possible that it is changed back to 500k.
      5) Right now you can access the following PQs through the Mirror of Dimension:

      1. Kerning PQ
      2. Ludi PQ
      3. Ellin Forest PQ
      4. Orbis PQ
      5. Davey John PQ
      6. Romeo & Juliet PQ
      7. Resurrection of the Hob King PQ

      • ace5008 says:
