kMSt ver. 1.2.454 – November Update & New Thief Resistance, Automata!

A huge patch was released to Tespia including the things for the November update (Demon Slayer and Cannon Shooter reorganization, Resistance and Cannon Shooter Hyper Skills, the new theme dungeon, Monster Park Extreme) as well as some Tempest class nerfs AND the data for the new thief Resistance class, Automata! It looks it will be coming out on December 6! (thanks to Yoon for finding this picture~)

The maximum number of character slots has been increased from 18 to 19. Ok… why not just to 24 or something…?

Party quest entrances have been consolidated to one map for the lower levels and one for the higher. You can now use your arrow keys to control the Dimensional Portal. In addition, some party quest rewards will give set bonuses if worn together~

The new Monster Park Extreme has been added, for characters level 40 to 100. You can participate by entering the new portal in the Monster Park map. It does require separate tickets which you can get through daily quests. The new NPC Spiegella has been added to oversee Monster Park Extreme.

After entering, you’ll fight monsters more powerful than the existing Monster Park and you can gain experience as well as special prizes if you satisfy certain conditions while fighting the boss monsters.

The new theme dungeon Paradise On Earth, Gold Beach has been added~! Characters level 40 and above can go there by talking to Irvine in Lith Harbor. It’s a beach resort owned by Gold Richie, and there you can see his son, Gold Richie Junior!

The monsters are pretty cute, they’re like those slime monsters from Singapore all dressed up as different beach or aquatic animal related things~

The theme dungeon Kerning Square has been reorganized. This includes new NPCs, quests, and a revised storyline!

There’s a couple map changes, such as the lobby which has been completely revamped, as well as some of the monster maps. For example, the floor with CDs now have them spawn on both the bottom and top platform! Even better grinding, hahaha. There’s also an elevator that will take you to whatever floor you want now, instead of you having to walk to each one~

Let’s talk about the skill changes first!

Thief Resistance: Automata

The Resistance’s thief has been (slightly) revealed, the Automata! It could also be Automaton I guess, but the Korean ends in 타 which is a ‘ta’ sound. No images or skill effects or even skill data have been released, but we do know the skill strings, which I have translated below.

Automata’s weapon is the Energy Sword, and I believe its secondary weapon is the Energy Collector. He seems to be some sort of Android or robot…

The Automata seems to use a few different systems. The first is the Power Storage, which is a beginner skill. It looks like its just another sort of MP, but it’s only used for three skills I believe (Agility Tuning, Reflection Sensor Link, Critical Point). It also increases your dodge rate based on how many Power Storage you have.

Dodge rate is also important to Automata. Many of its skills increase its dodge rate or give extra effects based on whether or not you dodge an attack. It’s sort of similar to Angelic Burster’s Affinity skills and Recharging, I guess (like not the ‘need to Recharge to use skills’ part).

Finally, there’s the Tactic Selector system. This is sort of new to MapleStory! It lets you switch the effects of some of your skills based on your situation. These skills are Sword Flexible, Combat Mode Switching, Pulseforming Network, and Energy Field Unfold. There are three different ‘modes’ for each of these skills, and they all slightly different effects. For example, Pulseforming Network can either be a strong single target skill, a linear mobbing skill, or an AoE explosion around you! It will be interesting to see how they’ll make each ‘mode’ desirable~

        Dear, Motherfucking ignorant bitch-ass
        I really don’t understand why people get so butt-hurt over a class receiving a buff to make up for the nerf. I get that people don’t want end up with a weaker class and get KSed by the current “OP class” as so many people like to call them. It’s not that they are overpowered, it is most likely the fact that your character is weak and unfunded or you are just one of those people who get on the internet and complain about a class in a 2D mmorpg that was only buffed to rebuild the population of DSs in the game. I have a Marksman in Khani, and my range is 50k-60k and I haven’t spent a penny on the game.

        What I’m saying is that you shouldn’t give a shit about other classes getting buffs. If you’re scared of getting KSed, either get someone to KS em’ back, Get stronger and hunt them down later, Take advantage of the class while they still have the buff, or just stop being a sore-ass bitch who will probably continue to be one even after he reads this and complain about an online game to people who have no power to change anything because he has nothing better to do with his life.

        Allow me to give you some advice for the future. If you feel like going on a blog to complain about classes temporarily being strong than yours, then you should probably just void that thought because no one needs to be reminded that said class is “OP” because people see that an uncountable amount of times and frankly put, It’s irritating. Don’t bother with complaining because no one will give the slightest shit about your comment. Keep those thoughts to yourself. Nexon only buffs classes to gain publicity and get more players of that class.

        I’m not typing this because I have a DS, because I don’t but it pisses me off when ignorant retards get on the computer, pull up their internet browser, go to a blog about an online game and act like the community is your own personal Online Game Councilor here to listen and give a shit about your problems while you’re eating a cookie and sippin’ some milk.

        Well that concludes my rant for today, but don’t worry! If you respond to this then there shall be more. If you actually read this whole thing then props to you, but if you skimmed through this like a bitch-ass dipshit then you can go jerk off in the corner of your room to some dude’s NXed Out pixelated character because I have probably wasted my time with a dumb-fuck who I had believed to have a shred of a chance to change his trifling and biased ways of thinking. Any-who I wish you a good day.
        Sincerely, John Doe

        P.S. yes, I am bipolar

        “Nine Tail Jörmungandr:” Jörmungandr is a norse mythic beast also known as the world eating snake. It has nothing to do with Japan really. I’m guessing this Automaton was an experiment of the black mage meant to destroy the world but something malfunctioned and stuff.

      yes very disappointing why did ever other class get a boost to their primary attack skill except BaMs that sucks they are stuck with 200% 6 times but other classes get an additional attack,increased attack % and increased critical chance their new attack sucks and they wasted a possibly great skill increase for teleport mastery -_-

        Battle Mage gets removed cooldown on Dark Shock and +3 hit counts in exchange for -25% damage. That’s 750% x 4 I think.

    Hi Max! I have a couple of aesthetic questions regarding Kaisers.

    Firstly, when you change your hair from default do the horns stay? I’m guessing they do but all the videos of Kaisers have them with default hair/face, so I couldn’t be sure.

    Secondly, in the extraction thread on SP.net someone Google translated a line as “Demon Slayer, AB and Kaiser can wear cape and made the wings invisible”. If this is true does that mean NX cape = no wings/tail? I’d really love this.

    If you could confirm/debunk either of these I’d really appreciate it, thanks!

    But if you notice, BaM’s Hyper skill doesn’t have a cooldown, i.e. it’s a combo extender. and can be used endlessly(as long as it follows Finishing Blow). Extra 4800% right there.

  53. November 9, 2012 at 8:23 am | #107

    …..

    Battlemage has the same teleport mastery focused hypers as the I/l Mage….
    Reinforce is EXACTLY the same
    Add Range is twice as good for Battlemage, 100 vs. 50 increase
    Only the last skill is totally different. I/l get two extra moster hit per cast (to greatly spammable skill, nice)
    Battlemage got 1sec invulnerability at cost of the losing the damage potencial (WTF is this, ESPECIALLY IN CONJUNCTION WITH REINFORCE?!)

    Seriously Nexon. Buff the Battlemage’s Telemastery Hypers with the I/l ones, and compensate I/l with something that fits them more. KTHXBAi

    • November 10, 2012 at 4:41 am | #108

      I think the BaM’s Tele Hyper Skills are fine. Personally, I only see the 1sec i-frame as useful out of that trio. Going by the idea of tanking, all a Battle Mage will really need to do is Tele after every attack (if you’re bossing, you can just “up” tele and not go anywhere) and you can avoid a great deal of attacks/effects. When GMS gets these Hypers, I don’t imagine my BaM will be dying very oft, if at all.

    Buck shot- (100%-40%)3= 180%
    Blue blood- 100%+ (100%*.9)= 190%
    Shadow partner- 100%+70%= 170%

      There are waaaaaaaaaaay more factors in total damage that you are ignoring here. And if you’re just looking at the new multipliers, cannon shooters got an extra 10% overall passive damage added to one of their skills, besides that you need to look at every, not just one part of each character. That’s pointless.

    like always the Demon’s are feeling the LOVE from nexon, they seem more OP than EVER, and cerberus looks pretty cool, Battleking bar its great, its an spammable skill like aran’s beyonder, and it looks hella cool, but his others buffs kind of suck… anyways the resistance thief sounds interesting and now im really waiting the hyper skills & Revamp on my DS :D

    Is it really certain the Automata will be the RESISTANCE thief?

    It doesn’t have the Will of Liberty hyper skill that all the other resistance classes have; instead it has 3 unique hyper skills, like the Nova classes. Is it not possible it’s either a unique class with no group, or possibly intended to be in the Nova’s subgroup?

        So I’m guessing Frenzy Core is Automata’s Link skill, right? Because it follows a trend of link skill bonuses. Demon Slayer: 100% Boss Luminous: 10% PDR Phantom: 10% Crit see a connection? these are all bonuses that Nexon seems to consider “equivalent” to each other, and the only one missing is %total damage, which would likely have a lower amount, as because it is considered like double the value of the other 3, so it would likely be 5% total damage.

    I have a feeling the Automata is gonna look like one of those robots employed by the Black Wings in Verne mines. Namely Muscat, Zechtok, Dolcetta, etc.

    The instructor is Orchid afterall, former Black Wings leader. She has access to their technology. I hope they’re customizable like Mech’s new colors. I would want a gold one.

          November 13, 2012 at 7:09 pm | #125

          yeah, and Elex wasn’t Demon Slayer’s instructor, so their logic of Claudine being Automata’s intructor is flawed, especially since both Claudine and Elex took up other positions since they did not have Thief and Warrior Resistance members, and, also, if its indeed automata and not automaton, then it sounds like it could be a name, making it a singular character. (Demon Slayer is the ONLY exception to singular characters having names and nonsingular ones having titles, and he is a singular character with a title, so there has never been a nonsingular character with a name (and by the way, Demon Slayer not having an official name doesn;t make sense, since all the other commanders are refferred to ONLY by name (except Hilla, the Necromancer, Von Leon, the Lion King, Orchid, the Wing Master, and Lotus, the Black Master, but at least THEY are refferred to by name Arkarium and Magnus never had a job title)) Anyway, since Elex is busy instructing the recruits, and Claudine is busy leading the Resistance (dude, there is no way you could train people for a job, AND lead a fairly large and likely not very sophisticated organization)

    Switching between single-target, multi-target and AoE all with one skill would significantly increase flexibility that traditionally has been supplied only through multiple, different skills. :)
    ‘Tis a good idea, except right now there’s no real need for “strategy” except how to avoid damage reflection through magic crush and devil bind and so on :/ The only time you need multi-target is Von Leon and Cygnus (maybe Akyrum if you’re a magician class).

        I hope they nerf it so that the hits is 2x instead of 3x.. I am really tired of seeing classes hitting a bunch of hits. Shadowers used to be exceptionally unique with meso explosion because of the wall of hits, but now we have so many classes like kaiser and luminous that are capable of doing that. Enough is enough, NEXON!!

        I wouldn’t mind if they keep it 180%(-10%, 2x hits)….

    extremely disappointed in the bam hypers…

    -Invincibility makes Teleport useless as an attack. It helps people who boss, but is useless for people who fight regular monsters.
    -Union Aura is disappointing.. Instead of getting some new buff instead we just get a boost to Body Boost.

    Wish we had gotten the +2 targets to Teleport instead of the invincibility; at least that would be worth getting.

    • Anonymous
      November 12, 2012 at 1:56 am | #159

      2 more targets on a skill that is hardly used would be worthless, while invincibility can be used to ignore weaker enemies or dodge hits from monsters. also using it to kill weaker monsters would be it’s only use but it already hits enough monsters especially since dark chain or now dark lightning could do a better job in most cases. It is pretty much a epic dodge skill that is easy to activate including the fact it takes about a second or less to use teleport and will be like a legit god mode if you use it in place. Taking off the damage of teleport could be a con, but it’s not as if it was our best skill. I’m only assuming its complete invincibility and not ignored by magnus or azwan.

      The only thing i agree with you is Union Aura it’s pathetic. It only increases the duration of a skill we already have and doesn’t make up for it in increasing damage cap. It would’ve been a whole new aura or increase all the auras we already have like a adv body boost. If it was a whole new aura it could increase amount of hits, damage cap, def. It isn’t a good skill a longer duration on body boost is only so good.

    Automata is evil, or black wing will build copies of Automata. I am basing this off the fact that in Neo City, the future of maplestory, there is a monster called Iruvata. I think this monster used to be half human since it human like appearance, and of course most of the robots look like robots not humans(just look at rooby or the other robots of Neo City). And also the big tip of this, Iruvata has an energy sword on here arm. This could all just be my own imagination, but what do you think. Also, almost forgot, the final angel bosses on Neo city, since they are the same as Iruvata, human like and have an energy sword.

        A robotic human with an energy sword, I don’t know how you don’t see this. That is what automata is so far, until art comes out that is all we know. And since Neo city is a future maplestory there can be many possiblities.

    > sees someone complaining about a class being OP
    > stops reading comments there

    And that’s part of why I stopped keeping up with MapleStory stuff. In addition to the pay to win nature of the game, and the excesses of both greed and power creep institutionalized by Nexon, the biggest turn off in the game is the envious green eyed monsters who won’t be happy until ever class (but theirs) is nerfed down to absolute suckage.

    Automaton looks pretty cool, and I’ll be checking back to see what him and his skills look like, but it’s still not enough to make up for the insufferable community that Nexon caters to with one nerf after another, while knowing full well they’ll just buff everything up again in a few months.

    Le sigh.

    so, Max, after your post about character relationships, I decided to pay a bit closer attention to the words said during quests, as long as I’ve been playing maple, I honestly I used to keep clicking and kind of go into “just shut up and give me xp” mode. So, I was bored, and decided to make a resistance character today, ended up making a wild hunter. In that one scene where you free that girl from the cave, when you go inside the cave to check for your friends, I noticed that the mad scientist guy may have been talking about automata. I play in GMS, but he was talking about some endless supply of fuel, joining the black wings to be a good choice and finally “That android the black wings wanted will soon be complete.” The character in the central chamber in that scene appears to have a blue tail and wings, seems like too much of a coincidence to be unrelated. xD

            In thinking along of the lines of maybe the standard creation story. Like, who am I, What am i, you know, a search for self discovery or something. Maybe fighting against what he was created to do, and In that fight joining the resistance to destroy what created him in the first place. It’s cool how maple has always had underlying things like this before the release of a lot of it’s classes.
