    Big Bang update.

    Post  Kubo on Wed Jul 07, 2010 8:58 am

    I've made an excel file for the Post-Revamp DPM. I know it's not correct, stop bashing me for it. This is just for reference as it happens to be now. If you think it's incorrect, don't open it, but also don't PM me/post here. I've had enough of it. I've not added defence for example, which will make mostly DKs stronger, and please be aware that this damage on bosses will be reduced by 25%, on normal monsters by 10%.

    I've updated it 5-7-10, and here are some pictures of the DPM list:

    No Buffs
    All Buffs

    The characters are level 200, all neccessary skills maxed, fully 60%ed equips, and +14 atk (2 30%, 4 60%) weapons. They have the best adventurer rings for their job (which turns out to be Critical ring for w.atk classes, magical ring for mage classes, but this is probably incorrect as the effect of adv. rings on MinCritRate is unknown for now). Hero/Paladin have NRW, DrK has Sky Skii, Mages have the highest level ele wand/staff, Bishops have Reverse staff.

    AGAIN a new patch

    A new patch has been in KMST. There have been some more skill changes, I have updated those.... and a new consume item that EVERYONE will get:

    SP reset!

    It resets all SP. Appearantly, it got changed to just reset everything to 0.


    The release date for when this comes to KMS is known. Three patches after each other. Called the "Maplestory Big Bang" ( Trailer).

    The first patch is shockingish soon: In ONE week, nexon will bring the revamp to KMS. The date is planned on 8 July 2010. This first patch is called "The Initial Changes".

    Nexon thought of a nice story along with this though. There is a nice comic about this, credits for it go to spadow this time ^^ And their will be 3 patches pretty fast after each other.

    The story is that black mage made all those changes to victoria island and the monster levels, and that the jobs became stronger because of that.

    The other 2 patches will be that the Resistance Class is coming out 22 July (patch is called "The Movement against the Black Mage"), and another patch will be 12 August, probably including the Mechanic Job (called "Reinforcements")

    Interesting picture about the Resistance!

    I like this =3

    If you want to prepare for this patch, do NOT add ANY points in DEX if you're a warrior. DEX will play a VERY little role on the amount of MISSes once you're at or above the monster's level. Dexless really seems to overpower regdex. If you're a mage... Add LUK a bit. You'll need it. I do not know how much, just that you need it.

    News on Damage System and Accuracy System

    Damage System

    The formulas for the damage ranges in KMST 1.2.321 are known. Here is what it is:

    Max:Multiplier*((Main stat*4)+Secondary stat)*(Attack(or M.Attack)/100)
    Min:(Base mastery+Mastery skills)*Max

    There are a couple of things I need to point out:
    Main stat is... well the main stat. For warriors: STR, for bowmen: DEX, for mages: INT, for brawlers: STR, for gunslingers: DEX, for thieves: LUK.
    Secondary stat is... the secondary stat. For warriors: DEX, for bowmen: STR, for mages: LUK, for brawlers: DEX, for gunslingers: STR, for thieves: STR+DEX.

    The Multiplier depends on your type of weapon. Here's a list of weapons and multipliers:
    1H Sword--1.10
    1H Axe-----1.10
    1H BW------1.10
    2H Sword--1.29
    2H Axe-----1.27
    2H BW-----1.27

    The base mastery (for min. dmg) is 15% for ranged chars, 20% for close combat chars and 25% for mages. Normal mastery gives another 50% (all jobs).

    I have been testing a bit with lv 200 character's stats, and I found out that the damage ranges were ON AVARAGE raised by 53%. The least being Hero/Paladin (23%), the highest being Night Lords (a whopping 134%, so yes, that's more then doubling your current damage ranges, you NLs ^^).

    I also have a list of DPM, but I will not be posting it untill I know how Criticals work, and what I did wrong at corsairs/buccanneers (as they end up WAY to high now).

    Critical System

    The new critical system is something interesting. First of all, everyone starts with 5% chance to hit a critical. Base. This can be increased by skills like holy attractions, Critical Combo and Sharp Eyes (just naming a few). The damage is a little different from what it's now. The description says that the damage lies between 120% Minimum Critical Damage and 150% Maximum Critical Damage. If you just do (DmgWihoutCrits * AvgCritDmg), it does not go smoothly with what we've been seeing in the videos. There must be something else, but we don't know what. Then the skills. There are a lot of skills that have in their description and in the WZ files that it adds to Minimum Critical Damage. There is however, no single skill that says it adds to Maximum Critical Damage. If the skills were really only to add to MinCritDmg, then you soon get a MinCritDmg that's higher then a MaxCritDmg. I guess that's wrong, but we don't know anything more about it. The only thing we know now from observing videos is that Crits do not add as much damage as they do now. Crits will NOT be so overpowered anymore, SE will NOT be so wanted anymore, same for Thorns.

    I will update this when I know more.

    Monster Defence System

    Monsters got a new variable in the WZ files which says how much % damage is reduced from your attack.
    This variable comes in 3 forms:
    10, so -10% on ALL your attacks. This applys for almost every normal monster.
    20, so -20% on ALL your attacks. This applys for some normal monsters.
    25, so -25% on ALL your attacks. This applys for ALL major bosses (from Mushmom to PinkBean).

    Accuracy System

    It is confirmed that mages need LUK to hit stuff.
    For non-mages, it seems like accuracy/dex plays a VERY small role in the % of misses. The thing that counts mostly, is the level difference. Warriors one level under the mob miss (almost) everything, while dexless warriors without equips can almost 100% hit monster of their own level or lower-level mobs.
    Thus, this patch IS killing LUKless mages, but is NOT killing dex-less warriors.

    KMST 1.2.319, 1.2.320 & 1.2.321

    Main things:

    Exp needed to levelup is nerfed beyond recognition. More then 50% of the exp is cut off. The exact exp to level up for each level remains unknown to me, as it's not just -x% for each level. For level 199-200, f.e., the exp compared to GMS's exp is less (or if you take lv 152, in GMS it's 131m, in KMST it's 66m), but for lv 10-11 it's actually 100 exp more (1244 instead of 1144).
    New formulas for EVERYTHING (min/max hit, avoid, def, accuracy etc, etc, It makes mages need LUK most probabaly)
    All of the attack skills for mages now no longer have a basic attack value and instead have a % that will be used with the new magic damage formula. So also mages now can really SEE their min/max hit. Things like gene hit 1100% ^__^
    NEW max hit: 999k instead of 199k (ZOMGPROZORZ) Picture =D
    Lots of other skills are removed too, like HP increase. However, nexon made it so that warriors get more HP from leveling up. Result: same HP (more or less) at level 200.
    Level of some monsters is drastically changed (Coolie/Miner zombies at level 130, Skeles at level 153)
    Max level for all PQs is level 200 (not competetive PQs like CPQ/CPQ2, sorry forgot to add this =P)
    Resolution change (a new widescreen option is added. Pic: Pic of resolution change
    New UI: Pic of new UI / gene cooldown
    Victoria island has a new world map: Picture of it (it got changed a TINY bit in KMST 2.1.322)
    Monster cards are here to stay, they're just removed from KMST untill the new monster's stats are placed on the monster cards.
    Change in Family System. Instead of 2x party, there is only 1.2x party now. Family bonding is 1.5x D=

    Exp reduction

    Okay, this is what I've found out from all the screenie's i saw from KMST.
    Level | GMS exp | exp without EXP curve | KMST exp | % exp of what it's now in GMS | % exp of what it's now in versions without EXP curve | Source

    10 | 1144 | 1716 | 1244 | 109% | 72% | Source
    52 | 631k | 789k | 129k | 21% | 16% | Source ( WTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF )
    91 | 5,06m | 6,32m | 1,51m | 30% | 24% | Source
    152 | 131m | 163m | 66,9m | 51% | 40% | Source
    162 | 223m | 279m | 127m | 57% | 46% | Source

    Mob Changes

    These are some changes in the monsters (yea, some: more or less all monsters were changed). The top line is what it's currently is in GMS, the bottom bold part is what it is in KMST now.

    Skill Changes

    All Final Attacks are now 150% at 40% chance (Video of brandish + FA)
    New skill: Ground smash does a great deal of damage (300% dmg at max) for small mobs (3 at max) (Picture/PictureIngame and a video =D ).

No idea if this got changed in 1.2.322b.)
    - Advanced Combo Attack gives at max level +10% per orb.

    What this all means


    Well. Skill %s have increased. The damage cap has increased. The monster levels have increased. Skeles have 260k HP. EXP needed to lvl is decreased
    Training places will have to be changed VERY BADLY in EACH AND EVERY guide. Nothing is correct anymore, I've seen that Magatia is a full lv 60+ area (even sand rats are lv 59 or so)
    This will just mean that you will stay at the same mobs for more levels, but more or less for the same time. However, you will not stay at skeles or ToT at level 140 to 200, but your end game monster will be more around level 170.

    BIG NOTE: The skill %s say close to nothing, as the min/max damage formulas are changed too. What used to be 300% COULD be 100% now. Not very likely tho. The exact new formulas would take ages to find out.

    Critical changes

    There has been a lot of critical changes, for almost every job. However, something most of you probably didn't know yet, is that there is a BASE crit rate of 5%. For example, this mage has a crit rate (2nd row from the top) of 45%. I know that this bishop just has a +40% crit increase skill, but I think crit can be increased by a couple of other things: Crit rate from a skill, but I haven't seen a single mage skill that would give crit rates, Crit rate from equipment, crit rate by level (the last one would be really, REALLY interesting), or crit rate by LUK/INT/STR/DEX/Hands (that would be REALLY interesting then, that would mean that warriors maybe need LUK/INT for higher crit rates...). The strangest part I'm wondering about however is that there is no set Critical Damage for the skills. I think that would mean that criticals ALWAYS deal 150% or 200% or w/e of the damage.
