KMST V355 ~ Reorganization Update Part 2

It was only a matter of time for part 2. This update gives another set of skill changes and this time the SP Reset scroll was given to all characters.

This is good news for everyone who messed up their skill points during the Big Bang update, now you’re given a second chance.
The cap from the item’s maxHP, maxMP, physical defense, magic defense, accuracy and avoidability has been raised to 999.

Part 2 of this update offers new skill changes. Aran’s Final Blow can now deal 100% critical damage, Crossbow Master’s Sniping can now deal 4×900% damage only on boss monsters, the instant kill applies to normal monsters and there’s no more durability on Captain’s Battleship.

KMST V353 ~ The reorganization update has arrived

The latest update in the test server is finally the anticipated ‘reorganization’ update.
The reorganization update contains major stuff. New skills, skill animations and of course the changes.

As you see on the image above, Aran, Evan, Resistance and Dual Blade are back and available for creation!!
Currently Dual Blade is only available in the test server, I do not know if Dual Blade will be back for creation in KMS.

In this update, several combat calculation formulas (defense, accuracy and avoidability) have changed.
To reflect this change, the HP, MP, physical defense, magic defense, accuracy and avoidability bonus on scrolls and consumable items have been changed upward.

Future Soul Masters will have a hard time leveling, because Nexon replaced the Brandish quest with Soul Driver. That means when you advance to 3rd job, you’ll obtain a Brandish at Lv. 70 and Soul Driver at Lv. 100.
Soul Driver got nerfed too.. Soul Driver can attack up to 6 monsters with 180% damage instead of 8 monsters and 250% damage.

By the way, in the test server we didn’t get a SP reset scroll, but I’m fairly certain we will get one when this update hits the official server.

Aran, Evan and Resistance are limited jobs… for now

A new notice was posted on main homepage yesterday.
The notice says that after October 28, you cannot create an Aran, Evan or Resistance character in the official server anymore.
It will make those jobs limited just like the Dual Blade job.

This already happened in the test server, there was an update yesterday.
When you navigate to the character creation window, you will see this. ▼

COMING SOON!
These jobs are currently being reorganized.
Existing characters will be available.

It seems the Resistance and Hero characters will get an update. Reorganization? What do you think what will happen?
I don’t know, but I’ll find out soon~
There was no date given when the character creation of Aran, Evan and Resistance comes back.

This is madness!

I’ve been browsing through the screenshots on insoya.com. A lot of interesting screenshots can show up such as item drops, Free Market deals, potential abilities on items and damage ranges. Some screenshots can be classified as hot which means it’s a hot topic.
So I clicked on this hot topic and saw this amazing screenshot from an Aran in the Tespia server.

The first Lv. 200 Dual Blader in KMS ~ 첫사랑2004

The Aran character ‘Kara‘ leveled up to 200 in 68 days. It was impressive to see the speed, however when Evan was released, ‘Slim’ leveled up to 200 in just 47 days!
But with an ultimate attack, you level up faster, right?

Dual Blade was released on February 25th in MapleStory, since then a lot of people have created characters.
After 72 days, a level 200 Dual Blader was born.

Quite surprising, eh? Dual Blade is such a strong and fast job, yet the Evan character is the fastest leveler.
Kara and Slim always trained in mini dungeons and they were with more people who gave them EXP and help.

Speaking of Dual Blade…

Dual Blade can still be created in MapleStory until May 9.
I quickly created one since I had an empty slot left.

MapleSEA’s ”Win A Trip To Korea” contest

MapleSEA held a “Win a Trip to Korea” contest with the launch of the Aran class last November.
The contest was about winning a trip to South Korea to explore everything what Korea has to offer~
Not only Korea, but also the Nexon office.

Four winners were chosen.

Occasionally I check the Facebook of GMS and MapleSEA because sometimes there are new photos and information on their profiles.
I already saw the ”Won Our Trip to Korea!!! >w<” album a couple days ago, but recently new photos of the Nexon office were uploaded.

I took a peek and saw interesting photos.  I’m actually envious of these four winners. I really am.
Does anyone know them in real life? I’m really curious about what they heard. And did they get the chance to ask questions about future content? I wish I could talk to them. >.<!

Also does anyone know when these pictures were taken? Because on one of the photos I saw a monitor with a picture of Lex, the newest boss monster that was released in Tespia version 1.2.300. (!)

I’m not going to post the whole album haha, but only a few shots from the Nexon office.

Do you want to see the photos that I found interesting?

Will the thief hero be called Ryan?

A lot of us are probably curious about the name of the next hero. I’ve saw a few such as Ivan, Odan and Ian. But nobody knows until a patch will unveil the new job.

In the ver. 1.2.286 test server patch several new hairstyles were released.
One of the new haircuts was the female Aran hair.

There is also a male Aran hair (they’re available in different colors)

This hairstyle was released with the ver. 1.2.286 along with the female Aran hair:

The name for this hairstyle is 라이언 헤어, which means Ryan Hair.
Since the release of Aran and Evan, maybe they continue following the ”an” trend.

What do you think?
