kMS ver. 1.2.152 – Cross Hunter & Mu Lung Dojo Reorganizations, & Golden Temple!
This patch was basically everything in the last post (Cross Hunter and Mu Lung Dojo reorganization, theme dungeon Golden Temple, Temple of Time reorganization) and a couple of events, pretty boring…
I did find out some new information about some of the things added though, including a very rare recipe that might become very easy to obtain…
The Golden Temple is now a theme dungeon, a permanent addition! It is located near Mu Lung and Herb Town. You can go there by talking to Hak or by using the Mirror of Dimension (which really defeats the point don’t you think?).
With new maps, quests, and monsters (including a new miniboss), the Golden Temple has been renewed! Ravana is still the final boss though.
For completing the quest line, you’ll receive the Seeker of the Golden Temple medal (5 to all stats, 350 HP and MP, 1 attack and magic attack, 100 defense, magic defense, accuracy, and avoid) and a Mystery Mastery Book.
You can return at any time to fight Ravana again. The first time, you might have noticed he didn’t drop anything, but after that he will!
He can drop the new Ravana’s Golden Crown (12 to all stats, 80 HP and MP, 80 defense and magic defense, 12 accuracy and avoid, 8 slots, tradable with the Scissors of Karma) or Ravana’s Helmet (18 to all stats, 60 HP and MP, 100 defense and magic defense, 10 accuracy and avoid, 5 speed, 2 jump, 7 slots, tradeable with the Platinum Scissors of Karma), as well as Mystery Mastery Books.
You just need to collect 10 Blazing Sun Bursts to combine into a Sun Burst, and be over level 130. You can fight him 5 times a day, in channels 6 to 8.
Cross Hunter has been reorganized! All quests begin at level 75 now, and many of the lower level bosses have been deleted. Bosses have been organized into different Chapters. There’s also some new prizes, which are really cool, because there are titles that give stats!
Cross Hunter has been given its own UI! The tabs at the top allow you to switch between Chapters, and you can see each boss you must hunt in each chapter. a CLEAR sign will appear on bosses you have already defeated, and a big CLEAR sign will cover the page once you have beaten them all. You can press the buttons below each boss to be guided to their Mystic Gate. Once finished the chapter, you can press the bottom button to receive your prizes!
In Chapter 1, you must hunt Timer, Zeno, Deo, Master Dummy, and Deet and Roi. These are available to you at level 75 or higher.
For completing this chapter, you’ll receive the Apprentice Hunter Proof title (which gives 1 to all stats, 100 HP and MP when in effect) and 10 Cross Coins. Until the end of February, you’ll also receive 10 Justice Coins.
Then you must hunt Centipede, Master Hob, Master Harp, Master Birk, and Kentaurus King! This can be done at level 95 or higher, if you have completed Chapter 1.
You’ll receive the B Rank Hunter Proof title (which gives 2 all stats, 200 HP and MP) and a Cross Hunter Weapon Scroll (which when used gives you a 100% scroll for a weapon of your choice that gives the stats of a 60% scroll), as well as 15 Cross Coins and Justice Coins.
In Chapter 3, you must fight Chimera, Manon, Papulatus, Griffey, and Richie! Don’t worry, they all have their own Mystic Gates. However, they do not drop quest items or anything… so no getting your Manon’s Cries from the instanced version… These bosses are available at level 115 or higher, if you have completed Chapter 2.
You receive the A Rank Hunter Proof title (which gives 3 to all stats, 300 HP and MP) and a Cross Hunter Mastery Book (which gives you a random 20 or 30 book for your job). You also get 20 Cross Coins and Justice Coins.
In Chapter 4, you must fight Pianus, Leviathan, Dodo, Lilynouch, and Lyka! Available to you if you are 135 or higher, and have completed Chapter 3.
You receive the S Rank Hunter Proof title (1 attack and magic attack, 3 to all stats, 300 HP and MP), an 80% 2 Star Equipment Enhancement Scroll, and 30 Cross Coins and Justice Coins.
The fifth tab holds the Cross Hunter Shop, meaning you don’t have to go back to Edelstein every time! The prices have also been reduced, and the equipment are tradeable through storage once.
Mu Lung Dojo has been reorganized! There are now three modes, Normal (level 90+, with 10 stages), Hard (level 120+ with 20 stages, and Ranking (level 130+ with 40 stages). You can do Normal and Hard Mode 3 times a day, and Ranking Mode 3 times a day.
Hard Mode now has a rank system! It calculates your rank from SS to B depending on your Time Points and Bonus Points! Bonus Points can be received by looting the Bonus item that drops from bosses.
Based on your rank, you’ll receive prizes! SS Rank gets you So Gong’s Panda Paint (an eye accessory that gives 6 to all stats, 200 HP, 1 attack and magic attack, 100 defense and magic defense), S Rank gets you Unul’s Panda Paint (an eye accessory that gives 5 to all stats, 150 HP, and 75 defense and magic defense). They last 7 days.
A Rank gets you 3 Mu Gong’s Elixirs, which give 30 attack and magic attack and 10 speed for 1 hour, B Rank gets you 10 Power Elixirs.
Ranking Mode‘s prizes are the same, but the gloves’ special effects no longer apply within the Dojo. You can still receive the Belts, and bosses will now drop Dojo Belt scrolls! By completing Normal Mode, you can receive the So Gong’s Successor medal~
In both Orbis Tower and Eos Tower, new ropes and ladders have been added to make moving and training easier. You can now also pay money to the Magic Rocks to move floors! This is an amazing change, although a bit late…
In the Ossyria continent, all shops now stock level 50 to level 70 equipment!
The Temple of Time has been reorganized! The maps are much smaller and easier to traverse, and the shelter maps in between have been removed. In addition, you must now only kill 333 monsters for each quest! And perhaps the best part, the NPC Johanna will teleport you to each of the three sections of the Door to the Past! No more walking!
Johanna also runs her own shop, so you can repot or NPC items right at the Temple of Time!
Speaking of shops, while traversing the Door to the Past, you may come across the Special Box NPC, who sells scrolls, recipes, and materials for cheap (10k mesos each)!
This NPC is what I was talking about at the beginning of my post, because on the MapleStory website, confirmed, is that the Special Box can sell the White Angelic Bless recipe!! One of the rarest recipes in the game sold for 10k… I guess people will be camping for this shop!
It also sells Pieces of Time, Mystery Mastery Books, Timeless and Reverse recipes, and Advanced Potential Scrolls, but who cares about those in comparison?
The Justice Thank You event has begun! It will run until the end of February. When reaching 2nd, 3rd, and 4th job, you’ll receive a one-handed or two-handed scroll for attack or magic attack, as well as a Mystery Mastery Book for your job at 4th job!
The quests where you must clear 3 Monster Park runs, 3 Party Quests, and reach Wave 15 in Nett’s Pyramid now give 2 Justice Coins each! Nett’s Pyramid items now come Epic on reveal!
For the Level Up Event, based on your current level, you must get a certain number of level ups to receive a Justice Coin and a 1.5x Experience Coupon!
The Justice Shop has been updated! All weapons now come Epic on reveal, and you can buy 7 Pet Equipment for Attack or Magic Attack scrolls now. Two new items have been added, the 30 day Pendant of the Spirit for 30 Coins, and the 8 Slot Party Quest Item Bag for 55 coins! I already have this bag, but I guess it’s good for new people~
Now there are a bunch of Hot Times planned, but they’re getting lamer and lamer… On February 4, you get a 2 Star Enhancement Scroll and 2 1.5x Experience Coupons. On February 5, you get 2 1.5x Drop Coupons and 2 1.5x Experience Coupons.
On February 11, you get a Valentine’s Android Box (which gives a Valentine Heart and Android) and 2 1.5x Experience Coupons. On February 12, you get 2 1.5x Drop Coupons and 2 1.5x Experience Coupons.
On February 18, you get one SP Reset and 2 1.5x Experience Coupons. On February 19, you get 2 1.5x Drop Coupons and 2 1.5x Experience Coupons.
Finally, in order to celebrate the various reorganizations, some new events will take place. Ravana’s Golden Crown will have a higher chance to be higher than Rare rank, and Blazing Sunbursts will have a 2x chance to drop. For completing the Golden Temple, you’ll receive a 1.5x experience coupon, and you’ll be able to enter Ravana’s Altar one extra time per day.
For Cross Hunter, you’ll receive Justice Coins for completing Chapters. Also, the Veteran Cross Belt and Veteran Cross Pendant will come Epic on reveal!
In Mu Lung Dojo, the belts you can get will come Epic on reveal, and you’ll receive Justice Coins for clearing different modes (3 for Normal, 4 for Hard, and 5 for Ranking)~
