KMST V278 ~ Balance Patch part three

The preview of the return of the Adventurer gave us a hint that the balance was not done yet.
The third and probably the last balance patch has arrived.

The balance patch is scheduled for KMS on the 7th of January.

Check out Part One and Part Two~

Let me check out the new skill changes!

Nexon said in a Q&A that they will buff up Arch Mage and Paladin as well.

Patch, patch, patch!

This month a lot of different versions of MapleStory released new, huge content.
March should have been the jackpot for MS, but instead of delivering huge content, they released a party quest for Lv. 75 ~ 200.


Let’s have an overview of what kind of content other versions got for their March update.

KMST 1.2.190 – Balanced skills

These skill changes are good to see. I can’t wait to use Screw Punch or Backspin Blow while Transformed! With these skill changes I’ll believe KMS now has a higher chance to kill Pink Been quicker. It’s still bugged at the moment. I expect to see more Pink Been updates, the patch notice said they added a Mastery Book:
[Mastery Book] Maple Warrior 30!
Who drops it? I do not know, but we will see in the future.

Pink Been in China MapleStory Test is good to go, i have seen screenshots of players trying to kill Pink Been after the 5th phase, but not the actual defeat yet.
For the patch notice, click on ”more…”

9/1 – Current videos of the updated skills

Here are some videos after the balance patch and test server patch.
My previous post contains videos in the test server.

I will try my best to search for better videos.
Thank you for those who uploaded the original videos.

KMST 1.2.275 ~ Skill Updates: Backstep Shot (Haste + Wings)

KMS ver. 1.2.89 ~ Skill Updates: Fist, Energy Charge, Buster and Dragon Strike

KMST 1.2.278 ~ Skill Updates: Strafe

KMS ver. 1.2.89 ~ Skill Updates: Blast, Holy Charge, Rush, Thunder Charge and Charged Blow

KMS ver. 1.2.89 ~ Lv. 150 Paladin with updated skills hunting in Road of Regrets 5

KMS ver. 1.2.89 ~ The return of the Adventurers

Finally! The balance patch arrived.
Like I said, part three of the balance patch in the test server was the last one.

Everything from the test server is implemented in this patch. Including the Adventurer Rings.
I just noticed that the rings were nerfed. I edited my previous post about the Adventurer Rings.

Click here for the OLD stats.
These are the NEW stats:

Adventurer’s Cruel Ring
REQ LV: 30
Weapon Attack: +3
Magic Attack: +1
HP: +180
MP: +100
Has a 1% chance to instant kill 1 enemy
5% chance of dealing Critical Damage (20% Damage)

Adventurer’s Critical Ring
REQ LV: 30
Weapon Attack: +2
Magic Attack: +1
HP: +180
MP: +100
Has a 1% chance to instant kill 1 enemy
10% chance of dealing Critical Damage (10% Damage)

Adventurer’s Magical Ring
REQ LV: 30
Weapon Attack: +1
Magic Attack: +5
HP: +100
MP: +180
Has an 8% chance to stun an enemy for 6 seconds
5% chance of dealing Critical Damage (20% Damage)

And something new in this patch is that you can NOT wear Lilin’s Ring ()  and a Adventurer Ring (,,) at the same time. And you can only wear ONE Adventurer Ring.
This was applied and tested in the latest test server update and brought over to version 1.2.89.

It is probably for the best. People would be too overpowered if they could wear Lilin’s Ring along with these three Adventurer Rings.
I can’t imagine how many people are mad or happy at this moment.

For translated patch notes about the balance patch. ▼
