Inkwell’s Diary ~ Entry #18!

There was another patch in KMST yesterday, but it was a really small one with a couple of changes to Luminous. No big deal, I’ll just update the skill tables when the job comes to KMS.

Well, for this entry, Inkwell is giving us a warning of an upcoming tempest (as in, storm!). On the 5th of July, there will be a tempest, or rather the Tempest update will come.

Pretty quick, I must say. The job isn’t even stable yet, nor are all the skills adjusted to 4th job’s new beginning at level 100. And worst of all, there wasn’t even a conference! We know NOTHING about the update (aside from Luminous and job changes, but that’s probably just 1 part out of 3).

Let’s wait, only a couple more days.

P.S. – I’m thinking of dedicating a post to the Dragon Warrior class that was released not too long ago. Should I? Leave your thoughts below.

P.P.S. – Oh crap:

More world alliances are forming. One of them is between Demethos, Galicia, El Nido, Zenith, and Arcania. The other is between Bellocan and Nova. Click on the image to learn more.

GMS v.1.12 ~ Renegades: Part I!

The patch was supposed to be today, but it was postponed till tomorrow. Luckily, though, they released the PATCH file today! It’s really big, a whooping 288 MB file :|. In this post, I’ll be covering all the new content, which include the release of Jett. I will also be using the official patch notes which can be found here.

Inkwell’s Diary ~ Entry #17!

Inkwell is back with a new entry. He had like a week with entries, now he got lazier.

Anyway, you may be wondering, what’s the definition of the word “tempest” doing there? Actually, no you’re not. Clearly, it’s the name of the new update with Luminous and such. They even said at the bottom of this entry (named “Rise of the Storm”): “The tempest is coming… Big Bang was just a beginning” (in English, why did I just type it over o_o).

Aside from that, he didn’t leave anything. Now time for me to laugh, LOL. Tempest? LOOOL. Big Bang kind of fit, Chaos was alright, but the names of the updates thereafter only got worse and worse. They are basically throwing random English words with no relevance to the actual update.

And speaking of L’ingOL, only two more days till lulJett comes out. Let the excitement begin (NOPE).

Jett – The Final Countdown

Only 4 (?) days until the class is released and Nexon has already added the update’s highlights. Surprisingly, they are following what I predicted they would do at first; follow what CMS/TWMS planned and ONLY revamp thieves. The update will bring the thief revamp, but, I’m sorry to say, the pirate revamp won’t come until the end of the summer :/.

Well, let’s see what they posted, shall we?

KMST v.1.2.435 ~ Luminous, the Mage Hero!

UPDATE: Except for videos & skill builds, DONE!

So, the final hero is revealed! Luminous, a new mage hero, completes the 5 heroes that fought the Black Mage. Now that you think about it, a pirate hero could not exist because pirates weren’t one of the original heroes. In fact, pirates were only added to GMS on v.62 (data at v.56. How do I know this on top of my head? Private servers).

It seems like the heroes really do spell M.A.P.L.E. as we predicted! Mercedes, Aran, Phantom, Luminous, and Evan! Awesome, so that’s all the 5 heroes. I guess the Maple Story should end now…

Well, until that happens, just enjoy the new job. It’s actually pretty fun, I must say, and cool too!

Jett Revealed!

[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRrSe91OcZ8%5D

I’m really confused about what happened… First, I heard people say Spadow “leaked” it. Next, I hear about MMORPG.com releasing that same video. Right after, GM Hime announced it on Twitter/Facebook.

This is pretty messed up, just like the video. I mean, it’s the SAME thing as the Dragon Warrior! It’s basically Mercedes + revamped Corsair -_-.

I wonder if that’s the video they were planning on releasing tomorrow. Probably is, damn. Call me negative but I really dislike the class now, more than I imagined (I was excited at first :/). Rule of thumb: don’t get excited over anything -_-.

KMS v.1.2.163 ~ Resistance Revamp

[Click to enlarge and view the animation. Actually, you better. I wasted 4 MB on uploading this picture!]

So, I’m still not done with my program for extracting skill animations and such (I’m stuck on the z-values, why the hell are they stored as strings -_-. I would appreciate any help, by the way!), but that’s fine because there was another patch in CMST recently that changed Dragon Warrior once more and they will probably have many more patches until its release (which is on the same day as the release of Jett!).

Hm, not too many skill changes, but a lot of events.

Inkwell’s Diary ~ Entry #16!

Well, I just woke up and found out that there was a new entry in Inkwell’s Diary! I have to go to school in a second so I’ll make it quick. The title of the post is “Light born in the darkness” (어둠 속에 태어나는 빛), and Inkwell left the following message:

위대한 이야기의 결말이 빛과 함께 공개된다.

The great end of the story will be revealed in the light.

End of the story? Are they finally introducing the Black Mage? Will Magnus be released? I mean, there were some NPC’s in the WZ and this stand. Although, there’s still Guwar to release… So… I don’t see how it will be the end.

Well, I guess we’ll just have to wait. And speaking of new classes, Dragon Warrior was released to CMST yesterday. I might cover it in a number of day once I finish a program I’ve been working on that, in my opinion, is really cool :).

So far, we know about 3 jobs that will be released this summer. Exciting content, I guess.

KMST v.1.2.434 ~ Resistance Revamp, Cherry Flower Castle, & Chaos Pink Bean

[Click to enlarge]

UPDATE: Info about Jett at the bottom.

For those of you following my twitter, you already know about the troubles I had with Windows 8. If you want to play MapleStory, DO NOT get it. I spent a majority of the day installing Windows 7 because I couldn’t play KMST on Windows 8 :/. Well, that’s fine; the OS was terrible anyway. The whole reason to why I downloaded it in the first placed was because I had a touch screen, but what sucked is that the touch screen didn’t even work (crashes every time I use it).

So, much earlier today, a patch was released to KMST that pretty much brought almost all of the Inkwell Diary entries (except the Black Mage one) together into one update. To compensate for my lateness, I worked hard on this post :P.

Inkwell’s Diary ~ Entry #15

[Click to enlarge and view the animation]

Oh my Gosh, Inkwell, just stop -_-. He posts an entry like every single day now. This one is just a post about the Resistance revamp we saw in one of his earlier posts, and it shows the new Battle Mage (titled “The Return of the Battle Mage’s Storm”).

His message:

파멸의 소용돌이! 강력해진 싸이클론!

Swirl of destruction! Powerful cyclone!

Many promises but no updates. How great, Nexon.
