KMS v.1.2.149 ~ Justice Part II

[Click to enlarge and view the animation]

After numerous re-balancing patches that happened in KMST, our thief hero Phantom is finally released to the test server!

Although most of the data was already in the KMS WZ, the patch was pretty big. It also contained another video, which I will show you below. I won’t start off with the skill changes first, there were no changes from the last KMST patch (except two skills, one was a beginner skill which you shouldn’t care about and one was Phantom Charge, delays were lowered from 690 ms -> 540 ms). Also, Monster Park and PQ’s were revamped, as they were earlier in another KMST patch.

No point in me going over the class again, so I’ll just redirect you to my Phantom guide (which I’ll update soon with the full storyline).

New Year’s Events

Since New Year’s is coming soon, a couple of events were added. Not too many at all.

First of all, they replaced Santa’s stamps with Black Dragon Orbs:

Trade 100 of those for 1 Justice Coin.

In addition, they replaced Santa’s Magical Box to New Year’s Bag:

Open it and you can get the following:

  • 1 Justice Coin.
  • 1.5X EXP.

  • Elixir of Fortitude (+10% all stats for 2 hours).
  • Warm Abdominal (belt, +2 all stats, +2 Weapon/Magic ATT, +50 Weapon/Magic DEF. Bonus for Phantoms: +2 Weapon/Magic ATT).
  • Traveling shop (or whatever it’s called).
  • Black Dragon Transformation Potion – Transforms you into:

  • Potions.
  • Personality traits potions.

There will also be a massive amount of 1.5X EXP given. Every 5 levels from level 50 till level 100, you’ll receive a 1.5X EXP buff.

  1. I finally get this video, was kinda confused at first.

    But this is pretty much the return of Phantom.

    The reason Mercedes, and Athena are the only ones that recognizes him is because of they’re long life being elves. Aran losing his memory wouldn’t.

    I believe this has something to do with claiming cygnus as a false empress, or something along those lines.

    Then Phantom shows up comparing the current cygnus to the previous one or something.

    Kinda hard to figure out more from just the video without understand what they’re saying.

    and First…..

  2. It is not Cygnus but Aria on the video. I was confused because of the knights but I am sure I heard the word ‘Aria HwangJe’ – ‘Empress Aria’ in English. I could be wrong, but…

      • (Shake head, and sigh’s…)

        watch the video again, it’s cygnus. Aria only shows up in phantom’s small flash back.

        This is present time, Phantom returning. If it were the past more people would recognize him.

        At the end you see phantom giving cygnus wut Aria wanted to give Phantom at the end of the other video.

        Must have been some type of royal treasure or something. Watch them both together Cygnus hair styles are very different, and the hair pieces they have are different as well. Cygnus have a feature hanging from her hair piece,and Aria having two strings hanging from hers.

      • Oh, my bad, wrong post/video (thought you posted it on the ‘Happy Holidays’ post).
        Yeah you’re right, that’s exactly what happened on this video (the most recent one). You can tell because he’s looking at Cygnus and he sees Aria.

  3. Stupid Question:
    Does the Elven people view the Phantom as a “hottie”? It kinda looked like Athena Pierce (maybe Helena; don’t know) and Mercedes were looking at him like they found their boyfriend (or really dear friend).

  4. You’re so slow getting to 120. Why the hell is it taking you so long? I get that KMS doesn’t have the Haunted Mansion year round, nor CBD, but still I’ve gotten to 120 In 2 weeks, only playing an hour and a half a day, playing “KMS style” (w/o Haunted Mansion mobs, CBD, nor LHC (Since GMS kept the party play)).

    • Well, when u play as Mercedes, in a quest at lv29, she unites with Athena Pierce and she tell her a lot of things, including the fact that she met Aran again, that he lost his memories and somehow he’s fighting for their side. And that was b4 Phantom came back, so it makes sense that she didn’t seem surprise to see Aran there. The weird thing is that Aran didn’t seem surprise after seeing Phantom. (pretty sure he got all of his memories back, though I haven’t played past 3rd job yet) :))

  5. If you were to steal Magic Guard (I’m assuming that you can) would it be better to steal a higher level or a lower level one because having 85% of the damage being taken from your mp if you have a low max mp kinda leaves you potting constantly.

  6. i love how you excited about lv110. it always took me 1-2 weeks to get from lv110-120. yesterday, i whent with my guild to lhc and got from lv110-123…. now im lv135 XD

    • As I previously said, it’s an accomplishment for me because I pretty much quit MapleStory and I never hit 4th job before. For someone who rarely plays and never hit 4th job, getting to 110 is a milestone.
