Just a little while ago this update was released in KMST, and now it’s out in the real server! The patch is actually called Union’s Advance.

If you noticed on my previous post, the results for the next term of KMST are out. I didn’t get accepted :(, but congratulations to everyone who did!

Well, anyway, I’ll start off with the skill changes made in this patch.

Halloween Events

[Click to enlarge and view the animation!]

This year, Nexon has decided to add a series of events for Halloween! There are two major events added in this patch for Halloween! They will be running from October 27th till November 17th.

Haunted Mansion Quests

Haunted Mansion is open again in KMS for the new PQ that was added especially for Halloween!

If you’re level 13 or above, you’ll get a quest from the Masked Gentleman.

Just like Monster Park, he’ll send you to a specific channel based on your level (you change it, relax). The PQ, like every other PQ, has monsters that are based on your party’s level average so that’s why he does that.

He will send you to the Haunted Mansion and inside you’ll need to gather 2~6 people within a 20 level range. Then you can start the PQ.

The PQ is not an ordinary PQ, it doesn’t have stages in order. There are 4 (well 5, 6 if you count the NPC) portals in the map and you have to choose where you want to go. Each portal will lead you to a specific stage.

Stage 1

Basically, you have 5 minutes to kill all the monsters and enter the password. The password is a 3 digit number that I’m guessing is given at one point in the PQ.

Rewards:

1 Mask Piece + 1 Key (which I’ll get to at the end)

Stage 2

All you gotta do is look around the room and click on the NPC books. At one point, the books you click on might summon more books and you’ll have to kill them.

Rewards:

1 Mask Piece + 1 Key

Stage 3

Voodoos/Hoodoos will be spawned in the map and you’ll have to kill them until you obtain 30 Mirror Pieces. You have 5 minutes for this stage also.

Rewards:

1 Mask Piece + 1 Key

Stage 4

You’ll be sent outside of the Haunted Mansion and the doors will be locked with pumpkin locks (they’re monsters). Kill all the pumpkin locks and unlock the doors.

Rewards:

1 Mask Piece + 1 Key

Stage 5

Now, this is where the Keys come to play. You need to have completed all the other stages (or at least, have earned 4 keys) in order to do this stage.

Masked Man will be spawned and you have to kill it. He will then drop a bag.

When you open that bag, you can get:

  • Masked Man’s Hat – +5 all stats, +30 Weapon/Magic DEF, 10 slots. Permanent 🙂
  • Lame medals above your head (there are 2).
  • 3 or 2 Mask Pieces.

Now what are those Mask Pieces for?

You can exchange 10 Mask Pieces for 1 of those masks:

There’s a Crying Face Mask and a Sad Face Mask. They both have similar stats (+4 all stats, +2 Weapon/Magic ATT, +50 Weapon/Magic DEF. Crying Face Mask: +5 Speed/Jump, Sad Face Mask: +30 Accuracy/Avoidability) and they both last for 3 days.

Oh and also, when you PQ, a Witch Cat may spawn:

When you kill it, you may get:

  • Mystery Mastery Book.
  • Smiling Mask (lasts for 5 days, +5 all stats, +50 HP/MP, +3 Weapon/Magic ATT, +7 Speed/Jump).
  • Angry Mask (lasts for 5 days, same stats as Smiling Mask except it doesn’t add speed/jump, it adds 50 Accuracy/Avoidability instead).
  • 1.5X EXP coupon.
  • 1 Mask Piece.
  • Personality trait potions.

Happy Halloween!

There are a couple more quests related to Halloween besides the Haunted Mansion Event. Here they are:

Halloween Candy Basket Event

You can do this quest as many times as you want every 10 minutes. You’ll get that basket^ and you’ll need to fill it up with candy.

You can get candy from monsters your level and it will appear like the pumpkin at the bottom^.

Once you’re done, you’ll get your rewards! You’ll get 1 Halloween Pumpkin Badge.

The badge’s stats are random just like Monster Park’s badges have random stats, and it lasts for 30 days (the examples show that you can even get +5 ATT and +12 of a specific stat!).

Halloween Surprise Boxes

Kill monsters your level and they might drop Halloween Surprise Boxes. From those boxes, you can get:

  • Red Ball Mask: +2 all stats, 5 slots. [Temporary]
  • Purple Ball Mask: +3 all stats, 5 slots. [Temporary]
  • Pumpkin Hat: +2 Weapon/Magic ATT. [Temporary]
  • Halloween Pumpkin (which shoots pumpkins).
  • Mighty Halloween Elixirs – Invincible for 20 seconds (with 10 minutes cooldown).
  • Mysterious Recipe.
  • Profession Skill Level Up Coupon.
  • 1.5X EXP coupon.
  • Pots
  • Personality trait potion.
  • 7-day broom mount.
  • Halloween Pumpkin Chair.

Pumpkin Monster

At a random time, a pumpkin will be spawned in town.

Killing it gives everyone in the map a 30 ATT buff for 30 minutes!

Jack-o-Lanterns

^These pumpkins will appear in random maps. Hit them and you’ll get candy (which gives you EXP).

Hot Time

There will be two Hot Time Events, one on 10/29 and one on 11/5.

On 10/29 – 1 SP Reset Scroll.

On 11/5 – 1 Halloween Amazing Blessing – Gives you a lot of EXP.

Halloween Tree Decorations

There’s a tree for Halloween and you need to decorate it! You can support by getting pumpkins from monsters and giving it to the tree. Depending on how many you hand in, you can get rewards:

Etc.

Towns have those monsters. They don’t attack you and you can’t attack them (pretty much like ghosts).

Other Events

There’s actually only one, a celebration for the revamp.

  • Create a NEW Aran/Evan/Resistance and get it to 70. You’ll get this ring:

+3 All Stats, +3 Weapon/Magic ATT, +20 Accuracy/Avoidability.

  • Reach 3rd job on any Aran/Evan/Resistance and you’ll get a 60% weapon for ATT scroll.
  • For Arans/Evans/Resistance levels 120~197, level up 3 times and get a 60% weapon for ATT scroll.
  • Arans/Evans/Resistance will get equipment boxes at certain levels:

At levels 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 50, 60, and 70 you’ll get a box and from the box you’ll get a set of equipment.

  • Arans/Evans/Resistance that hit 70 (or, at least, are over 70) can get free Mastery Books:

They’re all permanent, by the way.

That’s actually all the events, now for other changes!

Other Changes

Everything I told you in my previous post, INCLUDING ELIN FOREST REVAMP, plus this:

  • New Skill Resolution change feature:

This will basically decrease your skill’s quality if you choose, like so:

[Click to enlarge]

As you can see, the quality is a lot worse on the picture on the right^^.

  • The new Jaugar and Maple Union quests.

The way you get it is simple. All you have to do is gain access to the Maple Union HQ (which you can do by going to Ereve and talking to the Empress):

Then, you will get a quest from a light bulb (not the people). Accept it and you will be sent to a place with… rocks…

They are actually monsters, you have to kill them by doing ’10’ damage:

What the quests wants you to do is get 10 of these things which are dropped from those rocks:

Once you get 10, go to the HQ again. You’ll get a couple of things.

A Maple Union Weapon, which, as I described:

Union Crossbow – [Level 75] +93 Weapon ATT, 57% Knock-back, 7 slots.

Union Gun – [Level 75] +70 Weapon ATT, 7 slots.

Union Polearm – [Level 75] +97 Weapon ATT, 7 slots.

Union Staff – [Level 75] +105 Magic ATT, +69 Weapon ATT, 7 slots.

Union Wand – [Level 75] +105 Magic ATT, +64 Weapon ATT, 7 slots.

An SP reset scroll if you’re a Resistance/Aran/Evan player, and the new jaguar if you’re a Wild Hunter!

The stats of the jaguar changed from what it was in KMST. It now has the speed of Jaira, 120% speed (all the other jaguars have 100% speed) and 50% chance of preventing knock-back!

[Click to enlarge]

Yep, it looks pretty cool. Go show it off now 🙂

That’s pretty much it for this update in KMS. As for GMS, it’s now getting Rise of Fellowship!

  1. First? And thanks for the post shakar.

    Maha’s blessing got changed =D and a lot of the skills seem to be changed back to original state.

    • Oh I should mention that Most of Aran’s other skills, Final Charge, Fenrir, Toss, Combo Smash, Final Blow, Rolling Spin, Judgement can work with Final Attack now.

    • I wonder when will this impersonator stops.
      Looks like he hates you Shakar yet he’s there everytime like a BIG FANS of you.

      Still, Arans looks good, too bad stance(or should I call it freeze standing?) is still in 4th job.

    • You should know that if you wanted to pretend to be Max, you could at least use his wordpress name or at the VERY least his forum name…

  2. this patch is well … i expected more form you nexon!!!

    wild hunters don’t even get silver hawk at 2nd job yet or phoenix at all! it sucks! they put feline berserk in the same job as dash’n’slash? WTF!!! wh are ruined now 😦

  3. my rant about wh getting ruined… continued

    and no multiple attack at first job yet? come on! no one will create one now! your making feline berserk better and moving it back a job!?!?!?!!?!? FUCK YOU!!!! i don’t even wanna play my wh anymore!!! here is what u should do:

    triple shot tays same at master level but master level moved to 10
    crossbow booster same
    jaguar bite: simple one hit attack that hits 3 monsters master level: 15 at master level 150% damage
    second job:

  5. Still great for Evan~! Heh, they must really love us Legend classes now, huh? I did kinda like the changes to Dark/Blue Aura, and I liked them in the advancement they were in… Oh well, haven’t touched my BaM except to harvest/do events anytime recently.

    • There is in KMS, no idea when it comes to GMS (it came with one of the Union patches). Same thing with Sports Events, don’t get excited. And lastly, it doesn’t seem like ITCG set will continue.
