KMST V362 ~ PvP & other changes
January 6, 2011 107 Comments
A new update has been released in the test server yesterday. There are a lot of changes that I want to tell you about.
The name of the PvP map has been renamed to ”Battle Square”. You can enter Battle Square through the Victoria Island cab.
Currently the Battle Square map is poorly designed with existing NPCs in place. They’re placeholders. The update made it possible that players can earn BP (Battle Points) and redeem the points for prices.
The first four equip items are temporary equips. They only last for 3 days and it’s not worth it in my opinion.
However, the other rewards are interesting. You can see a scroll, a recipe, two books, another book in the form of a mastery book and a pouch.
The scroll is a Scroll of Mystery. You need x1 ”Proof of Ares” to get it.
When it’s in your inventory, you double-click it to see what kind of scroll you get. I got an accessory for mana scroll 65% from it.
The next item is the Recipe of Mystery scroll. For this item, x1 Proof of Ares is needed.
The Recipe of Mystery gives you a random recipe that you can use. In my case I got a Lv. 130 archer glove recipe for Blacksmithing.
The two textbooks are pocket items. A pocket equip slot can be unlocked when you have Lv. 30 Charm.
The green textbook adds +3 to STR, DEX, INT and LUK, +3 weapon/magic attack and increases your PvP damage by 2.
The blue textbook adds +5 to STR, DEX, INT and LUK, +5 weapon/magic attack and increases your PvP damage by 3.
Pretty good for a pocket item. The green textbook needs x2 Proof of Ares and the blue textbook x8 Proof of Ares.
This item is [Mastery Book] Mastery Book of Mystery. It gives you a random mastery book. You need x1 Proof of Ares.
The last item is the Daenantu Pouch. It’s available for x1 Proof of Ares. The pouch gave me x50 sunset dews. But it can give you a variety of items such as meso, potions, Proof of Ares, items that increase personality stats, Chaos weapons and more~
So you are probably wondering what this Proof of Ares thing is, am I right?
When the Technological Age update was released last week, I noticed that for Jewel Crafting you need the Proof of Ares item to make shoulder pads and other Blacksmithing equipment.I was wondering how to get this item, but now I know. It’s from PvP.
Proof of Ares. In this current situation you can earn it from Cassandra. (placeholder NPC)
Cassandra gives me three options:
- x1 Proof of Ares for 10 Battle Points
- x4 Proof of Ares for 30 Battle Points
- x7 Proof of Ares for 50 Battle Points
BP is pretty easy to get if you’re a master in PvP haha. The amount of BP depends on your score in PvP.
Remember that this is in the test server, everything might subject to change in the official server.
I will not be posting the skill changes for PvP, because I just know that will take me a long time and I’m sure Nexon will update the skills often until it’s balanced for everyone.
The test server client AND the official server client is currently shitty and incompatible because I’m disconnecting a lot.
I really hope Nexon can fix this because it’s pissing me off. I can’t even log on my main character… -_-;;
Unfortunately, the Ice Knight mode is not available yet in the test server, but the new morphs has been added.
One person gets chosen to be an Ice Knight in this mode. The Ice Knight has the ability to freeze players. Other players have to avoid getting freezed by the Ice Knight. If the Ice Knight freezes all the players, he or she is the winner.
In this post, I explained how disassembling equipment works. Alchemist is the only profession that can disassemble equipment, but there is a restriction on disassembling certain level equipment.
I’m glad to announce that in this update it has been changed.
Alchemy Lv. 1 : up to level 50 equipment
Alchemy Lv. 2 : up to level 70 equipment
Alchemy Lv. 3 : up to level 90 equipment
Alchemy Lv. 4 : up to level 110 equipment
Alchemy Lv. 5 : up to level 130 equipment
Alchemy Lv. 6 : all equipment
This is really an improvement.
Oh yeah haha, they added new transformation potions for Alchemy.
They added these new transformation potions:
Two new special transformation potions were added:
Lion King – Believe it or not, but they actually added a potion where you can turn into the Lion King monster!
Papulatus – Another cool transformation is this one hahaha! No, there is no second form of Papulatus where you can transform into.
Alchemy is a pretty good skill, but I prefer Mining and Jewel Crafting. :<
Today I found out in KMS that you can gain Sense even if you cannot collect herbs.
I completed this Temple of Time quest on my Viper and it says 감성 +40, which means I gained +40 Sense. I haven’t completed quests in a while and this is my first. So maybe you can get Sense through quests?…
Thanks to the + 메이플스토리 + Daum cafe, here is a recent video about the Empress Cygnus boss monster.
