I don’t really have much time to write this post, so I’ll just rush through the update right now. Sorry, but I am very busy now since the year is almost over and every teacher decides to assign projects -_-.
Anyway, in this update the 9th Anniversary events were added along with Fantastic Park, which is basically Malaysia in GMS and other MapleStories. And also, the Legends jobs (Cannoneer, Mercedes, and Demon Slayer) were added and revamped. Honestly the revamps were lame. You might have not known this, but every time I put ‘by …%’, it means that all Nexon did was change 1 number around, and therefore the change applies to all levels.
So yeah, let’s get to the skill changes:
KMS v.1.2.156 -> KMST v.1.2.428
Damage Increased by 40% (180% at max level -> 220% at max level).
Damage Increased by 10% (40% at max level -> 50% at max level).
Explosion Damage Increased by 50% (250% at max level -> 300% at max level).
Damage Increased by 70% (170% at max level -> 240% at max level).
Damage Increased by 100% (760% at max level -> 860% at max level).
Damage Increased (600% per hit for 2 hits at max level -> 500% per hit for 4 hits at max level).
Number of Attacks Increased (2 -> 4).
Damage Increased by 35% (285% at max level -> 320% at max level).
Delay of each hit decreased (90 ms -> 60 ms).
Damage Increased by 100% (300% at max level -> 400% at max level).
Self-destruction Damage Increased by 100% (420% at max level -> 520% at max level).
Damage Increased by 10% (60% at max level -> 70% at max level).
Damage Increased by 10% (100% at max level -> 110% at max level).
Damage Increased by 20% (520% at max level -> 540% at max level).
Damage Increased by 15% (405% at max level -> 420% at max level).
Damage Increased by 10% (170% at max level -> 180% at max level).
Demon Slayer (2nd)
Demon Lash’s Damage Bonus Increased (20% -> 30%).
Damage Increased (100% at max level -> 120% at max level).
Demon Slayer (3rd)
Demon Lash Arch
Demon Lash’s Damage Bonus Increased (60% -> 70%).
[Therefore final damage amount increased from 80 to 100.]
Damage Increased by 50% (150% at max level -> 200% at max level).
Damage Increased by 15% (140% at max level -> 155% at max level).
Demon Slayer (4th)
[Final damage amount increased from 200 to 220 obviously.]
Damage Increased by 30% (235% at max level -> 265% at max level).
Damage Increased by 60% (240% at max level -> 300% at max level).
*Oh and also, Monster Magnet’s formula for amount of enemies hit changed again for the worse but it’s still 6 at max level.
Hm in addition to that, the legends will be back on creation on the following dates:
- Cannoneer – April 19th.
- Mercedes – April 20th @ 8:30 A.M.
- Demon Slayer – April 20th @ 9:30 A.M.
So, Fantastic Park was finally added. It’s basically a theme park (WHY) for levels 120~130 that was added to Ludibrium.
I was actually excited for this, but now I’m disappointed. Yes they added Targa & Scarlion, but they nerf’ed their helmets! They suck now, only like 5 on all stats -_-.
Rode all the way to Ludibrium for nothing.
So, MapleStory is 1 year older. This year, they added a couple of different events, and they are actually original this time.
I’ll go into more details when it comes out to the real server, but for now, here’s a general overview:
- Monsters are dropping Maple Leaves and boxes (that give either pots, new level 79 Maple weapons, or Maple Leaves).
- Gift boxes added to each town (that drop many goodies).
- You may wonder what that die is for^:
When you double click it, you get sort of a Monopoly game!
You get to roll the dice and to roll it again you have to either do a quest or nothing (if you get a bonus). For example, I rolled a 2 and landed on a quest from that old “hene-hoe”:
They also added a yeti to play music for you. And there’s some run every 10 minutes.
And of course, the coins are not useless. There’s a shop, which Inkwell once again owns:
And of course, he sells brand new level 79 Maple equipment.
Awesome, I actually can’t wait this time .
- New Synthesizer item was added to cash shop.
So what it basically does is transfers the stats from the item on the right to the item on the left so it looks like the item on the right. In other words, it changes the way the item on the right looks, making it look exactly like the one on the left. Pretty stupid, but I really would like to use it on a pair of Work Gloves on a yellow pair of Work Gloves~. And hey, when you use it, you get a +1 to all stats Pink Bean hat .
- Gateway to the Future is now a party zone.
- WHAT THE HECK IS THIS? In an upcoming Hot Time event, they’re giving out a FREE White Angelic Blessing!!! What sucks is that it’s temporary, but I still want it.
There are actually a LOT of Hot Time Events, they’re also giving the Demon Slayer horns. But I really like that ring… Dang it, I don’t think I’ll be on.
- Sick new chairs added:
Anyway, sorry I didn’t cover so much, it’s because I really had to rush this time. However, I can tell you for sure that the post I’ll write for when the update hits the real server will be BIG.
