KMST & KMS updates

In KMST the Resistance sign at the character selection screen was added.
The job name is now colored and they finally added the bar animation when you use a HP/MP potion.

It’s so annoying that it goes straight from A to Z. Sometimes I don’t see that I’m running out of mana. >_<

Wild Hunters have their critical shot skill removed instead Jaguar Riding will give the 40% critical bonus. Final Attack was added and this is awesome with Wild Shot.

The reason I’m only doing ‘5’ damage is because I am in the area where you can catch for different colored jaguars.

In the previous Tespia patch, the effects of a few old skills were changed. They said that were going to add a newer animation for Rage, but now I have seen that they have changed Thunder Spear as well.
Why not change the other skills of Adventurer?..

Thunder Spear


I forgot to tell you that there was a patch on the 16th that added the new set of skill changes and animations. The Cruel Ring lost its critical damage in KMS too. :(

On the 16th, Pink Bean was defeated in the El Nido server of KMS.

[Alternative Link]

Scania was the first server to defeat Pink Bean.
I think this still counts as an achievement for the Korean players even though Big Bang boosted all classes.

    the rings r worthless now

    • Alpha says:

      They still give W.Atk, which is still pretty good.

    • Chank says:

      I don’t think so. :\

      The rings aren’t USELESS, but it seems like the Critical Ring will outshine the other two now.

      • TehFrancis says:

        *sigh*, the rings are NOT worthless… they only removed the additional critical damage, the critical rates will stay. But that obviously means that the Critical Ring is the best available ring as of now.

        • Wisdom says:

          What about the Magical Ring? Does that still have it’s Critical damage?

          • Yoshiyahu says:

            The Magical Ring never had critical. Just Stun/Instant Kill

          • Tsu says:

            Actually the Magical ring had the same critical rate as the Cruel ring.

          • MrYelnats says:

            Yes, since Spadow never mentioned the Magical Ring. Expect it to be removed soon too, just like the Cruel Ring.

        • mydogisdrwho says:

          Wait a minute…noob question coming, but isn’t the critical rate and damage pratically the same thing? since the rate is what causes the damage or am I thinking of something completely different?

          • lalalaa says:

            that only applies for jobs who don’t have critical. And in the big bang, all jobs now have critical.

        • HD says:

          I’m not totally sure about this, but since cruel gives one more weapon attack wouldn’t that make it better in the long run?

  2. Aryln says:

    What were these skill changes and animations on the 16th? Will you be posting them later?
    Thanks so much for all the info. :) Keep up the good work.

  3. Alpha says:

    Thunder Spear looks amazing. I want to see them change all the old skills <3

    • Aryln says:

      Also, I notice that whenever they get hit lightning bolts hit PB back for damage. What is this? :)

      • Zacairga says:

        A 3rd job skill for Thieves. It works like power guard, but it’s for the entire party and has a 1 minute cooldown. It returns dmg taken to the party members at 100%.

  4. S-T says:

    Seems like their dmg cap n hp cap was raised, seeing tat pink bean does 3xxxx dmg n the bishop dealt 255k genesis.

  5. carlpaul says:

    wow all going to change TT-TT like old times

  6. fu says:

    My God, the new skills are always one color, I don’t like it.

  7. rauleli says:

    new thunder spear animation looks great i like it

  8. fu says:

    I want more color in any skills.

  9. Mike says:

    omg i love how you can pretty much pick your jaguars color!

  10. Royal says:

    Spadow, please answer this: Does the Magical Ring still have it’s 5% for 20% Damage critical? What are your thoughts on whether or not if KMS will remove this later?

    • Spadow says:

      They haven’t nerfed the Magical Ring (yet). My thoughts? I really don’t care that they removed the critical damage because I don’t have one.

  11. Alilatias says:

    Some KMS developer really likes the color blue… Blue’s my favorite color, but I do have to agree that it’s getting ridiculous when it looks like close to half of the game’s attacks are going to use the same shade of blue.

    I hope they redo Arrow Rain, Arrow Eruption, Arrow Bomb, and Iron Arrow sometime down the road. Oh, and change the design (And color? Red would be awesome) of the Final Attack arrows. Right now, they look really out of place with Hurricane, Wild Shot, etc.

    • Zacairga says:

      While we’re at it, I hope they change the Flash Jump animation to make it seem more dark… Hell, even haste could use some aesthetic changes. I never could get why all the other skills seem so sneaky and dark while those two can light up a room.

      • Keitau says:

        lol basically wat ur saying is to make the hermit flash jump look like the night walker flash jump

        • Zacairga says:

          Or the Dual Blade flash jump…

          Since they’re just a branch of Thieves, why do they get the sexy as hell ninja fj while we have this tealish color? Spread the love a ‘lil.

          • Keitau says:

            true their fj is sexy bt i think they wanted the classes to be kinda unique thts why they gave them diff color fjs

          • Zacairga says:

            Then make Shadowers’ fj a different color. Dual Blades are no better than we are.

          • Keitau says:

            lol i think nexon classifys sins and dits in the same place bt i agree with u it should be different

  12. Kouki says:

    Are wild hunters able to attack close range?

  13. Jacky says:

    Wait Scania beat pink bean?

    • Ghost says:

      KMS Scania, if it was KMS then a hell lot of spam would be all over the forum sites

      Now that Pink Bean has been defeated in KMS, can you tell us anything about a special non-weapon equip from PB? For example, the Zakum Helmet and the Horntail Pendant.

      • Keitau says:

        I thought the pink bean had already been defeated before. Well I jus like the new updates and in kinda hoping for the skill colors to change. It seems like whenever they get the chance they change the skill color to blue I miss the old colorful ms.

  14. Joel says:

    There are a few more skills that look “out of style”. Like Magic Guard.

    • Egimald says:

      true true~ I would love for them to update magic guard =o

      death to the little fairy! >=D

      • Zacairga says:

        I didn’t even know that was magic guard. I spent a solid year thinking it was bless. I thought magic guard was passive… That’s how bad the animation is.

  15. DAggers says:

    i discover 1 thing..
    they now move the HP/MP/EXP number to right side now?
    original is at left side if i not wrong.

  16. Marcelkti says:

    What happened to the Forum EllinForest????!!! D:

  17. YAY! The PinkBean has fallen to the BigBang!!!!

    Also is that a BlackWings hat???

    Also Thunder spear looks cooler yay

  18. JunCurious says:

    I hope they change Rage back to Red/Orange. Blue makes no sense, Rage is suppose to be an angry skill.

    So… Pink bean’s been defeated. Yay :D
    Too bad the Big Bang didn’t make Shadowers more needed in Boss runs.
    Every other class has either high damage, or a vital skill like Res, Dispel, Hyperbody, Time leap, Sharp Eyes.

    Cruel and Critical ring are pretty on par now.
    The 5~10% critical rate isn’t too big a different now, and the Cruel’s 3 attack helps balance it.
    Magical ring rocks, having 8% stun, 5 % crit, and still keeps its damage. :D

    • Zacairga says:

      I’m glad they didn’t make us more wanted. I’m happy with just being a “Come if you want to” class. The introduction of Flash Jump and Shadow Partner is already threatening our uniqueness when all the Narutards come rushing in. It doesn’t help that we can get Lucky 7 if we want to.

      • Keitau says:

        lol are u talking about sins or dits? and yea kinda seems unfair tht bandits het fj. shadow partner seems like a skill they should get but flashjump is a skill they should have made exclusive to the nightwalkers and assasins

        • Zacairga says:

          I’m talking about Dits. Anyone who knows me at least slightly by now knows I’m a Shadower.

          I like my Flash Jump, kthnxbai.

          • Keitau says:

            lol extreme lol yea i like the dit class bt its kinda too tiring bt now they have fj i might be compelled to make one since i like their skills better than sins

          • Alilatias says:

            I’m one of the people that will say that Dits need to have their Shadow Partner removed, all of their attack skills buffed to compensate, and be given Meso Up.

            Seriously. I don’t get why Hermits get to have Meso Up while the freaking BANDITS don’t. Really ironic when you look at the meanings of both words.

          • Keitau says:

            lol but dits need their shadow partner and also be given meso up is what i think. plus i think the only reason they gave hermits meso up is because they are part of the thief class so they need some way to make money. also when u think about it, dits dont really need meso up since they have steal, pick pocket and many other meso gaining abilities

  19. NEXON says:


  20. Waitin says:

    rage should be red/orange, why would it be blue? and thunder spear looks way cool now but again, why blue? it should be like a neon green/ electric yellow. emphasis on ELECTRIC. and wat r all the times, (doesnt seem that there r many) that pink been has been legit beaten?

    • Anonymous says:

      -points at Chain Lightning-

    • JunCurious says:

      Pink Bean has never been beaten under the 1 hour time limit.
      The big bang update’s the difference this month.

      • Zacairga says:

        @Waitin- All the other lightning skills are blue though. I think it’d be pretty safe to say MS Lightning = Blue lightning. Lightning is also blue in Avatar.

  21. Lionheart365 says:

    I like blue, but WTF? It’s not the only color!!!

    • Zacairga says:

      Lol. Instead of acknowledging that they made the skills better (Which they did. Booster actually has something to it now), you people choose to bitch about the color.


      • Keitau says:

        lol well most ppl look at the negative side so u cant blame bt i know ur gonna blame them so yea bt it really doesnt affect me since my main is a wind archer so go ahead and bitch and u go ahead and oppose them. it jus makes it more interesting

        • Mesniaa says:

          Sure we can blame them for looking at the negative side, or better yet, just being annoying kids who can’t ever be pleased.

          • Keitau says:

            lol like i said it just makes things more interesting. and yea we can say they are annoying kids but we cant be sure yet lol. have u seen the things tht ppl write, its hilarious most of the time

          • Zacairga says:

            Keitau, I’m going to have to politely ask you to stfu. Your comments aren’t even slightly relevant to the discussions we are having. Thank you.

          • Keitau says:

            Watever. I still say they shouldn’t use so much blue. Sure the new skill animations are nice but using too much of the same color would make people sick of it regardless of how cool the animation is or how much Dmg it deals.

          • Keitau says:

            Well… sorry for being an annoyance and according to u saying shit that don’t make sense. (deeply hurt)

  22. toupe says:

    Hey Spadow, what are the skill changes that took place on the 16th?

  23. mune0106 says:

    So, how many jaguars in the jaguar area?

  24. notorious says:

    aww nooo.. not the rings :(

  25. Luxeraph says:

    I don’t know but are they changing a lot of the skills to blue because they’re gonna do what they did with the first job skills, blue than red/orange and finally purple? If it is so they better not touch bowmans skills they’re good as they are now.

  26. HelloSpadow says:

    so pb drops mw 30……………?

  27. Ghost says:

    I could imagine a Chaos PB without looking like a fool now ^_^

    Hopefully CPB will have a long time limit like Zakum and Horntail, and the background would be dark twilight and stars.

  28. Douche says:

    Can Wild Hunter casts skills (Five Shots, Hurricane and etc.) without riding on Jaguar except for those Jaguar skills (Crossroad, Gust and etc)?

  29. Joel says:

    I’ve always wanted to know something but never asked.

    Since KMS got the EXP reduction do PQ’s still give out the same amount of exp?

    Do battle mages have mounts?

  32. Waitin says:

    waaaaat??? the pqs were nerfed too?????

    • Keitau says:

      Of course they were nerfed. Do u know how much exp cpq gives? With the new curve that would be enough to lvl a person two times simultaneously

      • FailedName says:

        “I hate it when my team loses and I only level up once…”

      • Ghost says:

        Would the monsters in mcpq1 still give the same amount of exp when defeated?

        If they changed it to the same exp in mcpq2, then i’m gonna rage….

  33. GrSniper says:

    Aren’t wild hunters overpowered compared to adventurer archers?

  34. bibi says:

    omg.. Spadow. I found ur outit in KMST a bit SM-like ;P

  35. AlOne89 says:

    i really wish that they could make the players to get their skills colour randomly,it will be interesting and fun to guess on what colour of skill will you get when you proceed to higher level..and hey!!everyone is unique now!!that’s refreshing!!

    • Keitau says:

      thts a good idea but i highly doubt they are gonna do tht. and most people will bitch if they dont get their favorite color as their kill. plus its too much work and they doint want more work on top of their normal workload.

      • Phantasm says:

        How about a colour wheel so that we can edit what the colour of the skill will look like.

      • Bob says:

        Actually, if they did decide to do it, they could use it as another greedy money pit. Because people who didn’t get their favourite color could buy something in the Cash Shop to change it to what ever colour they want (kind of like what I understand the cosmetic surgery to be like)
        Anyway, does anyone have a video of the new thunder spear being used? Because it looks absolutely awesome

  36. Waitin says:

    its fun to have the color u want but is it rly that important? and i hate to sound like a noob, but i kinda am-ish so…… wats cpq?

  37. mapledude says:

    so what jobs are getting most of the advantage in the skill changes? can someone enlighten me?

    • LemonBallz says:

      I think the clerics are, because their Holy Arrow does 392% damage on normal monsters…

      • Zacairga says:

        392% is nothing…

        Shads are getting flash jump, shadow partner, big time buffs, as well as dmg % rewards for chaning skills together. Arch Mages are becoming regular powerhouses now, and Paladins are actually useful.

        • LemonBallz says:

          Excuse me, did I include all the other job adv. for the Cleric class? No. I clearly said that the Cleric CLASS has the higher advantage because of the 392% of damage dealt on any monster. Now you started comparing a 3rd job with 2nd adv. The reason I picked cleric is because with the Holy Arrow upgrade they can be offencive and supportive class at the same time. I don’t think you can compare a Cleric with any other 2nd job that is able to Heal for almost nothing and attack. In my opinion the best class to have from lvl 30-70 would be cleric. I’ve done a little bit of reasearch on all of the 2nd job top damage they can reach, with skills. This is the list.

          >1.Bandit with maxed SB > 552% damage in total.
          >2.Brawler with maxed CB > 474% damage.
          >3.Cleric with maxed HA> 392% damage. +Able to heal
          >4.I/L Wizard with maxed CB> 374% damage.
          >5.Gunslinger with maxed IS> 348% damage.
          >Crossbowman with maxed IA> 346% damage.
          >7.F/P Wizard with maxed FA> 332% damage.
          >8.Hunter with maxed AB>316% damage.
          >9. ALL Swordsman on 2nd job with maxed GS> 312% damage.

  38. Bob says:

    Anyone know of a video showing the new thunder spear in action? Id like to see that
