I was waiting for some events notes for Magnus, but there were none. All they gave was the patch summary and the Hot Time events notification. That Nexon.
So, without further ado, let’s talk about the Magnus patch~
Magnus was released and a lot of things were revealed about the fight against him that I didn’t discuss when it came to KMST simply because nobody knew (i.e. his rewards). Let’s start with what we already know, however.
First off, Magnus is found in Helisium. Helisium is a new dungeon for levels 90+, but all we care about is Magnus.
You can reach Helisium by going to the top-right portal in Pantheon.
OR you can go to the top-right portal of Dimensional Portal.
More about Magnus. He was a traitor of the Novans, you have to help them, blah blah that kind of thing.
To fight Magnus, you have to recapture Helisium HQ by surpassing the Tyrant Citadel and confronting him. If you are a Novan, you’ll get a quest to kill him. You don’t have to be a Novan to fight Magnus, however.
To fight Magnus, you have to be level 100+. The party can be of any size.
There are also two different modes: Normal and
Boner Hard. You can enter both modes as many times as you want, but you can only FINISH Normal mode once per day and Hard mode once per week.
There’s also the Death Count system that you see above, which we discussed in the past. If you die 20 times, you are done. Just quit because he will destroy you.
Magnus also has a zone of his own, which is pretty unfair. You can only deal damage on Magnus and use potions if you are within the poles/pillars.
What truly sucks is that he can change it as much as he wants, forcing you to get even closer (dayum) to him.
Next system he has is the Bombing System. He has 3 types of bombs: Green, Blue, and Purple. Green = takes 50% of your HP, Blue & Purple = instant death.
Another thing attached to the Magnus fight is a tool that sprays Sleeping Gas. When you are caught in Sleeping Gas, you can’t move, use skills, attack, or even use potions. You can escape it if a party member has Dispel or Shining Redemption.
Magnus has several attacks that we barely care about but I have nothing better to say. Keep in mind that you can click on the images to see the animations (waste of my memory, to be honest):
Magnus also gives some pretty sick rewards. One of them is the really cool 2-handed sword I talked about (a nerf’ed version, at least) that adds 50 on all stats and 250 Weapon ATT!!!! He can also drops Tyrant equipment such as the ones above. The one on the right (Altair Nova, +50 all stats, +30 Weapon/Magic ATT, +150 Weapon/Magic DEF, 2 slots) is the one you get from Hard mode, and the one on the left (Altair Runt, +30 all stats, +17 Weapon/Magic ATT, +70 Weapon/Magic DEF, 1 slot) is from Normal mode.
Guess what else you can get? That’s right, COINS. You can trade the coins for Tyrant equipment.
That’s all for Magnus.
Azwan returned. Hold on, let me look into my pocket and see if there are any damns in there that I could possibly give.
EDIT: Problems – pocket is wet (and it’s NOT water). EDIT 2: LOL I’m not actually editing this post. EDIT 3: I THINK I FOUND SOME! EDIT 4: Oh wait that was, uh, something else. EDIT 7: Could not find any, sorry.
I know you guys love Hot Time Events as much as I hate them, so let’s go over the rewards that you will never get because I will D/C all of you on every single upcoming Hot Time events.
Just kidding. The first Hot Time is on the 18th and the rewards are: 20 Tempest Coins, 100% Lucky Day Scroll, and Milky Angel chair. Only 10 people per server will get a 5-star enhancement scroll (30% chance of succeeding). On the 19th, the rewards are: 20 Tempest Coins, 50% Vicious Hammer, and 100% Additional Potential Stamp. Also, 10 people per server will receive 100,000 Maple Points.
Er, those dates kill me. It’s so sad, I just wasted another summer doing nothing. By nothing, I mean it. NOTHING. No studying, vacationing, or anything at all :(.
To cheer me up, please post how you spent your summer below. It really ticks me off that I did nothing.
UPDATE: I also forgot to mention that the Red Leaf High event was added to GMS.
