KMS ver 1.2.131 ~ Spell of Awakening

The Spell of Awakening update along with the 8th anniversary event is finally here!
I can smell a bandwagon of Fire/Poison mages coming up.

Like in the Counterattack of the Blade update, a special event called Boom Up is held to celebrate the revamp of Magicians.
In short: when you advance to the 1st job advancement at level 8, you will be rewarded with a Magician’s Ring (adds +100 MaxHP, +50 MaxMP and +3 Magic Attack) and three equipment boxes.
When you advance to 2nd job, 3rd job and 4th job advancement, you will be rewarded with a special 60% scroll (adds +3 Magic Attack and +3 INT) and an x1.5 EXP buff.

The Maple Administrator will give you a list with available Special Mastery Books or 1 Secret Mastery Book when you completed your 3rd job advancement at level 70. Existing players over level 70 will also get this event quest. ^^
Last but not least, Magicians who are level +120 and level up 5 times from their current level will get the same reward (not the Special Mastery Book) when you advance to 2nd, 3rd and 4th job.
This Boom Up event will end on May 11. I think that’s where the Archer revamp will start in the test server.

Anyways, Nexon did some tweaking in this update in the Magician skills.
Unfortunately Nexon changed all party play zones to regular play zones. The affected zones are Ellin Forest, Neo City, Lion King’s Castle and Knight’s Fortress.
The only area where there is party play zone is Monster Park.

8th anniversary~!

8 years!! Wow! I’ve played MapleStory for years now and I’m still amazed that this game keeps me playing…
When Korea introduces the anniversary update, it always reminds me that other versions will soon have their own anniversary updates as well.

In this update, Cassandra gives you her 8th Anniversary Diary. When you open the diary, you will see ten available missions.
The missions are important. If you want a nice reward, you’ll have to complete all missions 8 times.

[ The ten missions located in your diary ]

[ Rising Star ★ ]

There are six missions that can be completed only once per day. I’ll keep it simple and short. You can pick a girl who you’re a fan of.
Lilin, Valerie and Empress Cygnus are the three rising stars in Maple World.
I’m a fan of Empress Cygnus because in the future she’s not a rising star but a badass evil person. So I choose her. ^o^

These following missions can be completed only once per day and they are required to train your idol.

Mission #1: [Vocal] You need to collect 8 different handbells for your idol to train her vocals. Each handbell represents a music mode.
Red colored handbell = Do
Orange colored handbell = Re
Yellow colored handbell = Mi
Green colored handbell = Fa
Light Blue colored handbell = Sol
Blue colored handbell = La
Purple colored handbell = Si
Black colored handbell = Do

Complete this quest and your idol gives you 10 8th Anniversary Maple Leaves and EXP.

Mission #2: [Musical Instrument] You need to collect 8 different music notes from monsters within your level range to train how well trained your idol is with instruments.
Complete this quest and you’re given 10 8th Anniversary Maple Leaves and EXP.

Mission #3: [Dance] Gaga gives you a Motion Capture camera and you have to hold it for 30 minutes. After you have kept it for 30 minutes in your inventory, bring it to the girl you’re a fan of and she gives you 10 8th Anniversary Maple Leaves and EXP.

Mission #4: [Appearance] Your idol is keen on her looks. She gives you a calorie consumption measuring device (which is a device that measures the amount of the calories burned by recognizing the movement of the user) and asks you to defeat 200 monsters within your level range.
Complete this quest and you’re given 10 8th Anniversary Maple Leaves and EXP.

Mission #5: [Popularity] Help your idol to raise her popularity by collecting one Star Cheer Placard from monsters within your level range.
Complete this quest and you’re given 10 8th Anniversary Maple Leaves and EXP.

Mission #6: [Reputation] Your idol is skyrocketing when it comes to popularity, so she has to be careful of the paparazzis trying to film her embarassing moments. Unfortunately Star Paparazzi, the most successful paparazzi in Maple World managed to succeed filming such a moment of your idol and it’s your task to bring the humiliating film back!
Complete this quest and you’re given 10 8th Anniversary Maple Leaves and EXP.

All these missions are repeatable everyday because you have to complete it 8 times.
But wait…! There are 4 missions left. These are missions that can be completed anytime and doesn’t have a limit of 1 completion per day.
However, these missions are much harder than the other 6.

The first mission in the top left corner requires you to use a Palabird’s Feather scroll.
There are two different scrolls. One is the normal Palabird’s Feather scroll which has a 20% success rate of upgrading Maple Beryl equipment into Maple Letinum equipment.

The second is a Shiny Palabird’s Feather scroll. This one has a 100% success rate.
How do you get it? You can either buy the normal Palabird’s Feather scroll from the NPC Inkwell, who by the way, also sells the Maple Beryl equipment and special anniversary scrolls or you can hunt a Palabird for the Shiny Palabird’s Feather scroll.

It’s a perfect opportunity. Because the second mission is to defeat 8 Palabirds. Unfortunately Nexon made their spawn time limited. On weekdays it spawns between 6~10 PM KST and in weekends between 2~10 PM.
The Palabird drops Maple Leaves, Armor & Accessory 60% scrolls and the Palabird’s Feather & Shiny Palabird’s Feather scroll.

In my opinion, the most difficult mission is using the Palabird’s Feather scroll 8 times. Because you have to use it on 8 Maple Beryl items.

You can ONLY buy Maple Beryl armor from Inkwell. He isn’t giving it for free… You’ll have to come up with some 8th Anniversary Silver Coins.

[ 5 8th Anniversary Silver Coins in exchange for 500 8th Anniversary Maple Leaves ]

Anyways, Cassandra can give you 8th Anniversary Silver Coins in exchange for 8th Anniversary Maple Leaves.
These leaves are new, so if you have old ones you can exchange them with Cassandra for the new leaves although it’s not guaranteed you will get all your old leaves converted into new ones.

1 8th Anniversary Silver Coin is worth 100 8th Anniversary Maple Leaves.

Monsters are only dropping 1 leaf so that’s going to be a problem. Although… Bosses and Master Monsters drop a lot of leaves!
And I know exactly at which boss I’m gonna farm me some leaves!

Inkwell isn’t only selling armor, but also special scrolls to commemorate the 8th anniversary.
He sells:

One-Handed Weapon for Attack scroll 20%
▷ Adds +7~+8 Weapon Attack to all one-handed weapons.
One-Handed Weapon for Magic Attack scroll 20%
▷ Adds +7~+8 Magic Attack to all one-handed weapons.
Two-Handed Weapon for Magic Attack scroll 20%
▷ Adds +7~+8 Magic Attack to all two-handed weapons.
Accessory for Armor scroll 20%
▷ Adds +3 STR, DEX, INT and LUK to armor.
Accessory for Attack scroll 20%
▷ Adds +1 Weapon Attack to all accessories (belt, pendant, ring).
Accessory for Magic Attack scroll 20%
▷ Adds +1 Magic Attack to all accessories (belt, pendant, ring).

If the scroll fails, your item gets destroyed.
And Inkwell sells the normal Palabird’s Feather scroll for 25 8th Anniversary Silver Coins.

I think you’re curious about the new Maple equipment aren’t you? I made a nice list. Check it out~

Maple Beryl is the level 45 equipment and Maple Letinum is the level 70 equipment.


So you already know how to get the Maple Beryl armor, but how to get the nice weapons?
It’s not going to be easy…

Every once in a while you might get lucky and a monster will drop a Maple 8th Anniversary Box for you.
You’ll have to get really lucky though because it’s rare in the public server.

When you open the box, you have a chance to get one of the Beryl weapons or if you’re really unlucky, you get some Maple Leaves….
I’ve already said how you can upgrade your Beryl equipment into Letinum. But I’m going to tell you it again.

The only way to upgrade Beryl to Letinum is by scrolling it with a (Shiny) Palabird’s Feather scroll.

[ Full Maple Beryl set ]

[ Full Maple Letinum set ]

A set is considered complete when you have the hat, overall, shoes, gloves, cape, shoulder pad, belt and weapon.
The full Maple Beryl Set gives the following:

AllStat +5
Weapon Attack: +3
Magic Attack: +3
Speed +5
Jump: +5

On the other hand, the Maple Letinum Set gives the following:

AllStat +10
Weapon Attack: +6
Magic Attack: +6
Speed: +10
Jump: +10

When you look back in my diary, there are 2 missions left. One mission that involves with a mushroom and the other with some sort of plant.
Luckily they’re connected to each other.

Monsters in Maple World drop this item called Mini Maple. It’s an item pot, which is a new thing introduced in the second update of the Chaos update.
A new window will open when you double-click the item. Mini Maple has four levels or rather said stages.
You can feed an item pot with equipment and ETC items. If you feed it with potentialed equipment, the blue bar will raise higher than with normal equipment.

When the blue bar is full, the Mini Maple will go to sleep for approximately 21 hours.
There are special items for item pot such as a basket full with hearts that raises the happiness (increases quality of the reward), or an alarm clock that reduces the sleeping time to 30 minutes and more~

Mini Maple has four stages and this is the result of the last stage. ▼

Double-click the Mini Maple and you’ll get a Golden Maple Fruit. Mission completed! Yup, you have to raise the Mini Maple 8 times.
The other mission requires you to use an Orange Mushroom Riding skill. The riding skill is connected to the Mini Maple because the Golden Maple Fruit can give you a reward!

Do you see the Orange Mushroom Riding skill? It also gives other riding skills as well and one of the special 20% 8th Anniversary scrolls or 8th Anniversary Silver Coins.
You only need to use the Orange Mushroom Riding skill once and not 8 times! Thank you for that Nexon. +_+

In the end, when you have all missions completed, you’ll be rewarded with the 8th Anniversary Medal!!

This medal adds:

AllStat: +8
MaxHP: +80
MaxMP: +80
Accuracy: +80
Avoidability: +80
PvP damage: +2

Unfortunately the medal has durability on it. However, once the durability reaches 0, it can be repaired again.
I’m looking forward getting this medal because it will be my best one after my Attendance Check Ending medal expires…

To conclude this post, I think I’ve experienced better anniversary events. The events are good and keep you busy, but I think the quality is decreasing. In this anniversary you can’t even get the other Maple equipment and there’s no new chair or shield. Bleh. ~_~

    Yay second post. Can’t wait to see the 8th Maple Anniversary.

  3. Anon says:

    Cool Stuff..

  4. Zyrk says:

    Amazing, It Feels Great To Be A Class / I/L Again ;)

  5. SonicDeco says:

    I cant believe nexon left Angel Ray with 900%… giving the best spammable skill to a “support class”

    • VivaceAssai says:

      Its no where near the best attacking skill. Lolz, look at paralyze and chain lightening

      • Random Person says:

        What he said, it does good damage, but all jobs need a decent way to lvl, for sure bishops did not have a fast way to lvl.

      • Wisdom says:

        “to a “supporting class” “

        • Random Person says:

          Well if you really want to think of it that way, when bishops had no way to lvl as fast as most ppl were, then you can pretty much say bye to your wanted bishops in HT, CZAK, CHT, PB and LHC because since they did not have a good way to lvl, none were being made by the good players of maple. Honestly i wouldn’t be QQ’ing, because now you will see bishops more often around maple, which is very important for obvious reasons.

  6. LynjanDakari says:

    So does this mean Bishop’s Big Bang was un-nerfed?

    • Jizz in ma pants says:

      Calm the hell down, before they got to 120 and max the skill, you’ll have plenty of time to grind up and k/s them on the way. Ypu’re frogetting how hard it is for clerics to get from 1-70…. Besides, they got alot of shit in the past, they should just enjoy it untill it gets patched. I don’t hear you complaining about Mechanics, that’s what you should be doing instead of picking on the most non-used underpowered class…

  7. Random Person says:

    COOL!

  8. VivaceAssai says:

    :D OMG, I’ve got a bishop but Ima make a f/p and i/l deleting my BaM and mechanic x.x

  9. VivaceAssai says:

    Bishops were never nerfed, the only thing pplz are complaining about is genesis, genesis was never meant to be a spamming skill….

  10. greennov1 says:

    awesomeness

  11. AlmightyHero says:

    Cool Login Screen!

  12. John says:

    Are does mission hard?

  13. Someone says:

    Is it just me, or does CL seem slower than before?

  14. darklime says:

    GC even more OPed, sweet. So does this mean mages are finally on-par with other classes? Probably until Nexon makes Archers, pirates, and thieves more OP….

    Spadow, the 20% critical rate added to CL means that it is stacked with the previous % crit? (5% base, 15% original + 20% new) Or does it just mean instead of 15%, it is now 20%?

  15. Zannygirl says:

    so i have a few questions:
    do mages get an AP reset?
    is the mage ring tradable or transferable within the account? or available to existing mages?
    is big bang one of the options after 3rd job? :)
    and spadow, THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!

    • Anonymous says:

      1) No AP reset
      2) Mage Ring should be tradable within the account and it’s available to existing Mages, as Spadow said, if you’re 120+ when you level 5 more times OR I assume when you’re between 30-120 when you make your next Job Advancement
      3) Big Bang is a 4th job skill.

    • Spadow says:

      1) No.
      2) It is tradeable once and you can share it within your account to other characters. To get the ring, you need the make a new Magician.
      3) No, it’s not.

    • Troy says:

      do you mean a SP reset?

  16. anon says:

    You bet your bum people are going to bandwagon F/P Mages. I’ve already got a name reserved for it! <3

    • anon says:

      Forgot to say, F/P was my first class ever, and it’s been FOREVER since I played one. SO excited!

      • LuffyBrawler says:

        Same here. =) F/P was my first character on Scania. Then Windia came out and I moved to it and never looked back. However… since GMS has World Transfer on sale right now… I might move that old F/P mage over. It would be cool to play as my very first character again! :D

        • NoamFer says:

          F/p was also my first class, and I really hope that it wont get bandwagoned, because one thing I really liked about being F/P is being unique, and now I’ll see all those damage hos shaming F/P’s.

  17. I love the animated pictures and how they work also the sining maple girls nice to see the empress is back to her ol self

    I can’t wait to get in on using these skills and I think it was a smart move to add a 10sec to doom cuz things would have gotten crazy

    Angel ray now makes me think of Fire Strike due to how it goes through foes the same way but less rapid dmg hits

    Well have a happy 8th

  18. frank says:

    Wow this is awsome

  19. s0meb0dy says:

    8th anniversary… sounds great!
    Mages now are OVERPOWERED!!! Glacian Chain=12 monsters, 450% damage, 4 times, ignores 40% of the enemy’s defence, freezes for 5 seconds, affects damage over time for 15 seconds, 135% damage/second. Total damage=450%X4 (1800%) +15 second of DoTX135% damage/second (2025% damage in 15 seconds). so 1800%+2025%=3825% damage, so it’s do 3825% damage, freezes for 5 seconds, and ignores 40% of the monster’s defence. now, because it’s recastabke each 5 seconds, the damage over time will be 675% damage, so 1800%+675%=2475% each 5 seconds, and ignore 40% of the monster’s defence, and this is only ONE monster, on 12 monsters it’s 29700% damage!!! (HOLY ****!!!)
    Did anyone understood? :O
    But let’s leave it, the 8th looks epic, I wonder what it’s going to be…

    • GOGO says:

      8th is the years how long maple korea has been running….

    • Axxez says:

      Are you serious?? Mages are not OP.

      • s0meb0dy says:

        Axxez says:
        April 22, 2011 at 3:40 AM

        “It’s OP. They should really do something about it :P”

        Axxez says:
        April, 22, 2011 at 3:43 AM (Three minutes later)

        “Are you serious?? Mages are not OP”

        …I’m sorry to say but that’s a fail, sorry.
        What I’m trying to say here, they made mages too strong so now they are stronger than other classes, “Glacian Chain” also comes with easy control for “Big Bang” which is very strong too… which is about 1500% damage for each monster, combine everything with Infinity, double damage.
        I know F/P mages are very strong too, and they are stronger than some classes too…
        Bottom line: Not balanced again… -.-

          Well at very least, at least mages can finally shut up about being the underdogs of Maple society. That’s all I care about.

          • s0meb0dy says:

            Well, you know what happens when they buff a class, right? then all the other classes cry that they didn’t got buffed, and it’s a spam of “OMG, THAT IS KSING ME!!! OMG NERF THEM!!!”

        • Axxez says:

          Well.
          I meant the Mist Eruption is OP compared to other mages.
          But overall, mages aren’t OP compared to other classes.

          • anon says:

            its not, u gotta waste a cast to place a mist to explode, and poison mist its really slow, a glacial chain every 5 secs does more damage than a eruption every 10secs, damage over time doesnt work on bosses, besides ani or LHC… and chain lighting its like 30% stronger than paralyze already…

            I/L mages got the best part in this update with a loooot more dps.

          • darklime says:

            @ s0meb0dy : Mages won’t be OPed, trust me. Nexon will never make mages OPed. We are probably on par now, which is good and all I care about. If I wanna be OPed, I’d make a DB or a mech. As long as we’re not too unbalanced, then I’m happy. Also, even if we do become OPed, what’s wrong with that? Mages have always been the underdogs, it’s about time we kick some ass.

            @ Arrol : Amen

            @ anon : Damage over Time DOES work on bosses….it’s been working since BB, bro.

    • Alilatias says:

      Good luck even finding 12 monsters to hit with Glacial Chain in the first place, with the kind of range the skill has. I’d rather they reduce the mob count from 12 to 8 and increase damage by 20%.

      Us Archers have Arrow Rain with an even larger range, yet we struggle to hit the maximum 10 enemies that the skill can hit. You’ll be lucky if you can hit more than 6.

      You want to see overpowered? Look at Mist Eruption. I/L’s got very shafted in comparison to F/P’s. Then again, Nexon Korea has lately been very kind to classes that were long considered to be the butt monkies of MapleStory in the pre-Big Bang era.

      • Random Person says:

        Agreed, NL’s got an ass kicking after Big Bang.

      • s0meb0dy says:

        That’s actually an easy control, use Blizzard/Meteor/Genesis to kill moster(s)/leave them with few HP, and then cast Teleport Mastery, so then you killled all the 15, and with that time you get easy kills, and then at the time left, “Glacian Chain”+”Big Bang” in every platform and then training is really easy. I know some of the magician’s skills, their range is too small, and need to be increased, It will be good if they will, but I would be happy to increase the range and descrease the damage a little bit, and I didn’t said F/P mages are not OverPowered, and they ARE Overpowered, Just saying I/L mages are strong too…

        • anon says:

          Takes 3.75 secs to cast a blizzard/meteor/genesis, in all that time u could easy kill the entire plataform with CL/Paralyze/AngelRay + teleport mastery, 2 hits of any of those skills with teleport mastery and u do more damage than a max blizzard/meteor/genesis, so those skills barely help, the best use for them its killing monsters in a higher/lower plataform than urs with a single hit, and they have 30secs cool down, wich makes em even more useless… i dont think any AM would max those skills before reaching lvl 170… cant be so sure about bishops.

  20. Killmeplsok says:

    Can’t wait to know more about the new anniversary quests, sounds interesting.
    And LOL at Pap and Manon.

  21. GOGO says:

    wtf….
    mist explosion is OP
    500*5=2500% damadge……………….40% ignored…………….
    tell me that isnt OP….
    meh i dont really care tho

  22. James says:

    wow this made my day and im on vacation…

  23. VivaceAssai says:

    Ima amke a f/p and i/l after this comes out, that way I got time to get my corsair ua and also get to use alll the cool new skills :DI already got a bishop :\

  24. LordMapl3 says:

    I was thinking, maybe I will make my UA a bishop after seeing this. Maybe use it like the F/P training method. That on a now decent class…… Hmmmmm…….

  25. Tyler says:

    Spadow, do you know the master levels of Arcane Aim and Adv Bless?

  26. Ken says:

    Are the Special Mastery Books or Secret Mastery Books trade-able?

  27. anon says:

    A bandwagon of F/P mages coming out?, but I/L AMs seem to have better dps agains bosses even afther this changes.

    • DAggers says:

      Although I’m an i/l, but i still think ME is

      Don’t u see the holy imba dmg of Mist Eruption?

      • anon says:

        but with 10secs cool down, glacial chain outdamages mist eruption in 10 secs intervals… and CL has even more critical.

        • Raven says:

          you forgot the 1.35 multiplyer for each extra dot on the mob thats why MEruption is so oped

          • anon says:

            There is only one place to use that efectively i can think of right now, LHC, in any other place including bosses, MEruption gets owned by glacial chain.

  28. Hanabira.Kage says:

    Just in case you missed it, Spadow, the mission with the picture of an Orange Mushroom states (00/01) while all the others state (00/08). Apparently, that one mission only needs to be completed once.

    Might be pretty tough. :x

  29. techboy says:

    im disappointed i made an i/l now instead of f/p. but is paralyze alone, with reg buffs of coarse better or worse then chain lightning alone, with all reg buffs. but either way f/p would be better bosser just explode thing is better then the other i/l skill

  30. JKnight says:

    with regards to the power guard and power reflection change, when you say “ranged” attack, would they also include magical ones or physical ones only?

  31. Kimicatdemon says:

  34. G says:

    I disappoint @ dispellable MG…

  35. Arrol says:

    Hey Spadow, when it said that Advanced Bless reduces 20% MP cost, does it mean like any skill any class uses will use 20% less MP?

  36. SharkyMikey says:

    I had seen on BasilMarket, a post which shows the 3rd patch of Magician Restructuring…Check it out if u wanna…Plz do see this Spadow and tell if its fake or not…http://www.basilmarket.com/forum/1998327/0/KMS_Jump_Results_Mage_Reconstruction_quotPart_3amp.html#

  37. LuffyBrawler says:

    While Adv Bless is a great step forward for better placing Bishops into their proper support role, taking away Holy Shield was, in turn, a step BACK. While I agree that Holy Shield and Mana Reflection are the two least-used skills of the 4th job set, why worry about Bishops getting Arcane Aim in the first place? Arcane Aim is pretty much just for bossing; there are very few mobs that would be useful for, especially now that LHC isn’t the most popular training place anymore. How much should Bishops really be attacking bosses when they have other tasks?? Holy Shield was a much better Bishop-suited skill than Arcane Aim. They should have kept it and IMPROVED it by decreasing its cooldown. Not to mention that Bishops now lose the passive 40% resistance to debuffs! If they’re gonna take away Holy Shield, they should’ve at LEAST added that to another skill, like Bahamut.

  38. FF_Cloud says:

    Holy Magic Shell sounds like a rip off from “League of Legend’s” skill which protects the towers *forget the name of the skill :(*

  39. Tyler says:

    Thanks to the person about about the master levels of AA and Adv Bless. Is the HS book being used for the new bless and the reflection books for arcane aim or are they completely new books? Gonna be a pain if they are.

    • DAggers says:

      Someone in KMST said that he ever has some bishop sb in his inventory.

      After the patch, he found out the the skillbook changed to either arcane aim or Adv bless.

      So, i assume the skillbook will change to its new skill.

      *Quickly buy those SB with cheap prices npw* !!

  40. techboy says:

    My-Kul said that i/l have higher dpm and better bossing then f/p. i understand that chain ligtning is stronger but isnt all of the explosion and what not with all of the damage over time wouldnt f/p have better bossing capabilities.
    basically what i am asking is wouldnt f/p arch mage be better at bossing cuz of all of the damage over time?

  41. techboy says:

    the updates to bishop and angel ray are definately not bad. stop complaining ppl. the new angel ray seems so awesome but f/p and i/l are still definately better. chain ligtning and paralyze are better then angel ray and the arch mages also have more skills to increase strength such as elemental amplification -_- thats 150% of all ur dmg on its own. they are still gonna be a supportive class just not as terribly weak anymore(still weaker then other unless they are funded extraordinarily more).
    also i still have my question:
    what i am asking is wouldnt f/p arch mage be better at bossing cuz of all of the damage over time?

  42. Axxez says:

    I have over 30 of those mushroom riding from the older events :D

  43. PaCh says:

    Hello Spadow! I love how exact all your info is, but could you tell me one thing?
    Does the item pot “die” if you log off before it “sleeps”

  44. JKALYJ says:

    I still consider only cleric and priest to be support while bishop as a awkward mage tank, based on the fact that they really do decent dmg compared to their number of buffs and dont die easy. (also note i said AWKWARD mage TANK, not just tank).But if other insist on tagging Bishops as support then i’d have to say with this bishops are more of a personal buff class now, the speed boost and multi hit skills and a more simplified Angel RAY as well as a full effect HS while solo gives bishop no reason to attach themselves to any form of party now, they do plenty of dmg and have fair enough mobs as well as a good crit rate to just solo so i dont see much of these amazingly sexy new buffs being put to party use that much. In terms of bossing aside from the fact that most the major boss already require a bishop (that no one seems to appreciate half the time -.-) theyll be wanted even more. and as a bishop i personally dont think AR needs to do more dmg than the other two AM skills but i do think it should at least have a % total of 1000%-1100% but its eh :/

  45. DracoRukario says:

    Definitely looking forward to this patch for my priest as well. :)

  46. Ghost says:

    Man Nexon is making us really work for the equips this year. You’ll need 114k maple leafs to acquire all the Beryl armors from Inwell! Not to forget the difficulty of getting a maple weapon. Really there are not worth it considering lvl 70 equipment really don’t last long.

  47. ajerul says:

    first, why they change the party play zone? aww now no one wanna make a party and everybody will play solo… sad

    in my opinion those mages such as i/l and f/p is quite good for bossing. i think they deal pretty good damage too. well maybe since everybody keep saying that and this and keep closing their eyes shut that is why i think they are not really famous. and of course mages skills arent flashy as others and seems slow.

    about gene, blizzard and meteor thingy, i agreed they got c/d.

    those who were saying priest barely got any buff, you’re wrong. priest got better skills such as that blessing. the arrow also getting better as well as the shining ray.

    come to think of it, this game is an online game! they are not made to be play solo.

    • JKALYJ says:

      Arrow only got better in use not in dmg, still comes out to the old 900% dmg

      • dennyvuquach says:

        Angel’s Ray may still come out with 900% total damage, but it has the benefit of Bishops who can hit more than 999,999. Not to mention they finally have Magic Booster, which helps them deal better DPS.

    • iClappys says:

      i agree with you, if you want to play as a bishop, play like a supporter

      • Venoshik says:

        i personally don’t wanna start anything. but bishop is a great solo class, they kill as easy in terms of trainning as any other class actually, and this is just big bang terms. No offence to anyone here but most ppl speak of bishops out of the fact that they make one to priest as an hs mule and frankly playing and muling are totally different.people in game expect bishops to be a submissive support because of this, and honestly some are but others like to solo and do is perfectionatly. people dont think bishops can do much simply out of the fact that
        1. not to many make them or stay with them to bishop
        2. no one makes it to play it, but make one just for hs.
        If you have a bishop thats all fine and well, but by the way you refer to a bishop i doubt u do, and refering it as a support class before uve tried it makes little sense~what u experience through your screen is totally different for a supposed support class

    If you’re complaining about the rewards, depending on which version you play all of the rewards have been outdated by previous updates (Time Traveller’s Medal, Crusader’s Ace Shoulder, etc.). I’d say the new UIs are pretty awesome.

    • DAggers says:

      lol, don’t u forget they need 8th anniversary maple leaves!!!! not normal maple leaves!!!!!!

      you collect now also no use..

      Spadow: Anyways, Cassandra can give you 8th Anniversary Silver Coins in exchange for 8th Anniversary Maple Leaves.
      These leaves are new, so if you have old ones you can exchange them with Cassandra for the new leaves although it’s not guaranteed you will get all your old leaves converted into new ones.

    I don’t see how the quality of the 8th Anniversary is decreasing. It has much more events/quests than most other anniversaries. Most previous ones’ main objectives were to hunt monsters and get Maple equips, not helping a specific “Maple Idol”.

    Yay, I can finally hunt and train w/o a a party! That also means the price of HS can skyrocket!

    • Alilatias says:

    Hi, Spadow!

    Just a few questions: How can we obtain Maple Letinum equipment? Is it only from monster drops? If so is there a database we can use to check what monsters drop it?

    • Spadow says:

      Only from upgrading Beryl equipment.

      • Some guy says:

        Ohh I see it now. I must have missed reading that part. So the 20% scroll does it destroy your equipment if it fails?

        I must say the spawn rate of the monster that drops these special scrolls is so limited…. :(

        And thanks!

  82. SquishyGMS says:

    Spadow, I have a question about you:
