KMST V335 ~ A new guild system

Hello everyone~

About twelve days left until the 2nd term of KMST ends. This term was great, I’ve experienced Big Bang, Resistance and the Mechanic job.
I’m always looking forward to what MapleStory is getting next aside from new jobs… =_=;;

Recently I said that there was a notice posted on the test server website saying there will come a new guild system.
Today the new guild system is available  in the test server.
I already had an idea of what it would look like and I was right: Guild levels and skills.

The patch note is kinda long with images and extra information. You’ll definitely want to read more about it~

MapleStory test client Ver. 1.2.335 has been released.
In this patch the following matters were incorporated.

<Game related>

1. The requirement for creating a guild has been changed.

– You are able to create a guild on your own.
– The cost of guild creation has been adjusted.
┗ Creating a new guild costs 100,000 meso.

– To enter quickly, the NPC Lea can take you to the guild headquarters from each town.

2. The fee for guild management has been changed.

– The fee for increasing guild slots and a guild mark has been adjusted.
┗ Upgrading my guild slots from 10 to 20 costs 1,000,000 meso. An emblem costs 500,000 meso.

– The fee for deleting a guild and guild emblem is gone.

3. The way to gain Guild Points (GP) has been changed.

You can gain GP in the following situations.

– When the play time of a guild member passes one hour.
– When a guild member in the guild levels up.
– When a guild member purchased a guild skill.
– When a new member has been added to the guild.

4. Guild level has been introduced.

– Your guild level is decided by how many GP you gain.
– A guild skill can be used according to the guild level.
– When someone leaves a guild, an amount of GP will be deducted.

5. Guild skills were added.

┗ NPC Deia takes care of the periodic support. She can give you a special G Potion.

->  

The G Potion heals 100% HP and MP.
All Guild Skills except for Guild Periodic Support last for 5 minutes. Guild Periodic Support lasts for 168 hours.
You can renew the guild skills, but there is a price to pay.

I’m sure you are wondering what the currency is to pay the price for the skill to learn and to extend.
At this moment it’s meso. But really.. 155 mesos for another 5 minutes of extra 10% EXP sounds too good to be true.
So what I assume is that it’s meso in the test server for testing and when it will be implemented in the official server it will be Guild Points (GP).

– A skill can be learned once the guild has reached a certain level.

– Time-limited guild skills that last for a period of time can be extended by paying a small fee.
┗ Extending a guild skill will cost you mesos. If you see the image above, it means that I only have to pay 20 meso for Lv. 1 Meso Up. The extend price is different for other guild skills. To see the skill price & price to extend information, look at the skills above.
– If a guild member purchases a guild skill, all guild members will receive the effect.

  1. joerockshaha says:

    Haha thats pretty dam sick :D

  2. Fan Jing says:

    Ohh.. KMST was so great :( You must be upset :( By the way, the guild system now so cool!

  3. Waitin says:

    oh well. u had a great time in kmst :) and the new guild system is amazing

  4. Keitau says:

    Wow tht new guild system looks crazy. But I’m kinda pissed tht the price for making a guild and expanding it has decreased. It seems kinda unfair to those who spent all tht money in their guilds

    • nicholas says:

      what are you crazy i was gonna wait until i made 7mil before i left my guild and made my own guild that was basically about hunting and chatting with friends but mostly killin stuff with your guild(so pretty much a large pool of available people to PQ and go bossing and chat and hunt for rare items and do quests with at all times without the hastle) now its gonna cost me less than 1mil(too bad i spend my 2.something mil on a korean fan many many potions a pan lid sheild and being nice to newbies)

      • Keitau says:

        Wat I’m saying is that wat will become of the old guilds which ppl spent more than 60 mil. It kinda seems unfair that other ppl can make guilds for cheap. On the other hand if they give refunds or compensation then it’s all good

  5. :D says:

    Awesome guild system.
    I like the skill too :)
    More XP look awesome.

  6. iMeltFaces says:

    Even though kmsT is coming to an end. I hope you keep using this blog.

    Thank you so much for all the updates on maplestory, and filling us in!

  7. MSEAF says:

    gosh! what will happen to the existing guilds then?

  8. Chibi says:

    heh, you can see that there is no limit to the level of the guild member, and then GP must be set for leveling, i can see a Guild being a Skill mule getting new mule characters get to lv10, delete, make same character, get to lv10, infinite GP, This new system is bound to be abused *sighs*

  9. Skyhawk says:

    Yay!!! I can be a 1 man guild :D

  10. unohano says:

    You know spadow, you could just fill us up on news when it comes to the official server… Idk we would still know before it gets here (GMS). This blog is very good to us……. so I can only hope you continue posting!!!

  11. yay!!! My Guild “TheJatoSquad” Will be more active with this!!!

  12. Volt says:

    Woohoo! At the part where it says if som1 uses a skilll does that mean if max used exp increase everyone in the guild wud get exp increase? And is Gpotion trade-able?

    • Chibi says:

      I think its a perk for the guild your in(meaning it works for everyone, people could boast about being in a high level guild.
      think about it, +20att right off the bat at lv1 (only accounts with lv200s will have that)
      +20 Jump and Speed, you’ll be the fastest on maple island,
      and 5mins of use:
      hm… finish maple island (lv1-10)
      Massive boost in the first 5mins of CPQ,
      do great in CPQ2
      Do amazing in BPQ(or any other boss battle)

  13. oooopoooo says:

    great!
    onw to find an active guild…
    also, any new stuff about “party killing”?
    i want to know more about that.

  14. notorious says:

    so its like family rep?
    get points and earn buffs

  15. plsbanthem says:

    So what skill and lvl does an existing guild with 100 guild members will be? can give some examples if u dun mind? ty

  16. TableCAKE says:

    Thanks Spadow! Good work up there.
    Hope u will come in next Tespia.

  17. BowMastaJM says:

    Sounds great! this should be good for my guild Catnip :D

  18. ihatebleach says:

    How about the fee for guild alliance? Is there any special things for guild alliance too? As MSEAF said, what will happen to existing guilds?

  19. Waitin says:

    i went to go play maplestory at 10:00am (eastern) and it said it had been extended to 11:00 so i came back then to see it say “the update was completed at 10:05am……. wow -_- they need to get their facts straight.

  20. joe says:

    im pretty sure WoW cataclysm already made a system exactly like this in their beta testing and announced it a while ago as well.

  21. Orgeuil says:

    Do you guys know what’s the max lvl a guild can get? Will it be lvl200 like characters?

  22. S says:

    so doese this mean the skill has unlimited time if you have the money?
    in other words means… there is no cold down ?

    • Chibi says:

      looks that way, but like he said, it will most likely cost GP instead of meso in the official servers;
      btw, i wonder how that will work, is it only the guild leader who selects the buff and use the skills, if not, the GP will be drained over night if thats not the case

  23. MassCreed says:

    spadow, if the GP is set to zero, for old guilds, what do you think are the chances it will do the same in KMS,

    :( cause i worked my ass off for my guilds GP.

  24. meteor-summoner says:

    Wow, looking forward to this! Now it will be easier to get guild points for those who don’t like to do GPQ (like me… :[ ) Unfortunately, I might abuse the create guild on your own feature and put my characters in a bunch of guilds only made up of the character that created it xD

    The guild skills look interesting ;P

    • Valckior says:

      It’s really outrageous, how, Our plain and simple Fancy Buddy List Like chat; Turned into a Business or a club like nothing.It’s amazing! I don’t really have time for GPQ either so we’re in the same boat there, but I love adding people, that’s my happiness about a guild, expanding and meeting people 8D
      and Dang Ninjad,
      I wanted to do the exact same thing you mentioned about making guilds in separate characters to boss an display separate guilds xP

    I don’t understand how the Peroidic Support has 10 levels.
    Do they give better G pots or something?

  27. eros says:

    Sound like the Guild war system will follow the step to release.

  28. somenoob says:

    nice post i can’t wait for this to come ot gms…to bad all o gms just CRASHED due to the visitors event T_T_T_T_T_T_T
    anyway so anything new with dragon nest spadow? you havent said anything bout it sincelike march

  29. andrew says:

    Hey spadow, guess what just happened in GMS.
    We crashed. Completely. Almost all channels. It was some visitor event thing, something is wrong and the second part came too early, every channel crashed and the whole thing went crazy.

    • CzImGreen says:

      Yes, it was funny how everyone was lagging though. I like the event by now… cliché, but nice storyline

    • TacoBeard says:

      no mean to offend u but i absoulutely loved watching everyone d/c tobad now all areas are filled with un killable aliens T_T
      also i would thing that if u cared u would’ve explained fully
      im guessing u liked the d/cing to

    • Waitin says:

      the first part is really annoying since u have to do it 7 times to get the medal. its even worse now with all the unkillable monsters in the way of getting the animal gas and vegetable oil. i cant wait for the 2nd part to come out.. and work so i can get the visitor suit :)

  30. Zero says:

    True..I wonder when KMS is getting our event. or did they have it? (dun dun dun)

  31. Yorckie says:

    Excellent!

    Spadow, according to an image on a Chinese forum something was changed or added to Brandish, Ice Strike and Magic Composition. Could you confirm if it is new damage, effect or animations?

  32. DarkLordKarkain says:

    I’m torn whether I’ll like Guild Skills or not. I like the way it was before because it took patience, but I also like easier leveling, it’ll make some of my characters less boring to train with if I’m rolling with Guild Skills. I will say this though, I’m freaking glad that I don’t have to just Guild PQ to get Guild Points. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love to Guild PQ, but let’s be reasonable, it makes more sense to earn Guild Points by leveling/recruiting/killing time than by only doing Guild PQ.

  33. flyXwing says:

    This really worries me.

    What is the real purpose of being in a guild?

    Would it be to gain these benefits, or a place to make new friends?

    • DarkLordKarkain says:

      Yeah, this new system is going to be abused to the edge of existence and back. I don’t mean to be a serious downer here, but I don’t really see people in guilds because they like the people, but rather because there is something to gain from them.

  34. tyson says:

    whens this patch coming out in the regular server?

  35. tyson says:

    and how does the BM’s vengance skill looks like T-T i know the skill sucks but i want to use it if its a hitting skill XD

  36. Enovan says:

    HEy there ,

    Until today update, anyone know whats was brave slash skill current delay? is it still 840ms or 770 ms or 1020 ms?
    Mind sharing? thanks

  37. tyson says:

    wait… so to get a skill you need to buy it with mesos or GP? im confused

  38. Noname says:

    look at this deadcouple.. they just totally copy and paste only.. really annoying. -.- ppl work so hard to finish it they just copy paste. should find a way to punish them..

  39. Renkotesu says:

    Well if they did give some kind of refund or compensation to previous guild owners, I would be a rich person indeed. I spent around 100m each guild I made expanding to max slots, not to mention that I changed my emblems over 20+ times in each guild over the past 48 months.

  40. Renkotesu says:

    Well if they gave some kind of refund or compensation, I would be a very richer person. With an estimated 400m spent to make and expand 4 guilds to Max slots, not to mention an Alliance on top of that and changing all emblems more than 20 times in a span of 48 months.

    That would be around an 80~90% refund, which would be a nice 425~625m refund.

  41. Ghost says:

    So Trade Shop Efficiency Increase will increase/decrease the amount of mesos that you brought/sold without affecting the amount of mesos the other person sold/brought?

    So if i’m the buyer with max mesos and I’m currently using Trade Shop Efficiency Lvl 5. It will be possible for me to buy an item worth max mesos?

  42. Noname says:

    yalor. only know copy and paste. last time spadow got complain them also..

  43. Silenis says:

    Honestly, this is a great idea, but it seems like another shaky prospect.

    At the least I hope the GP gained by joining to GP lost by leaving ratio is the same, or people will troll guilds by draining their GP. Not to mention, if it’s mesos, this also makes it so that the richer people will be targeted as either the people everyone wants in their guild, or the leader of the guild everyone wants to join. The GP resets back to 0 themselves are a bit undesirable. Also, like everything in MapleStory, I wouldn’t doubt if the amount to level a guild up is completely outrageous.

    As for other things, I agree with the other people on the abuse of the whole system by creating useless characters, leveling them up for a while and then deleting them. It’s just another way to keep people buying NX to level faster and keeping them glued to their screens. Also, who says people won’t join a GP and meso rich guild, drain them of their EXP and Meso buffs, and then leave? Seems highly hazardous if you’re paying for the buffs with GP…

    Either way, good idea, but highly abuse-able system.
