The Chaos Patch information was leaked a week ago and is said to be launched in October and November on GX. It will be divided into 3 patches spanning over two months of patches and updates. Here’s whats coming your way:
19 October 2011: Return of the Hero
Lots of classes are getting their skills re-balanced in this patch and the Hero class is getting the same treatment as well(maybe this is what the patch is named after). For those who have theorycrafted stats like defence, accuracy and avoidability, all of that will be revamped too. So it’s time to research on new calculations. Conclusively, this major re-balancing of skills and combat calculations can only mean one thing: They are setting the stage for PvP.
- Dual Blades, Arans and Evans get new Skills replacing some old ones
- Mechanics get a debuff in terms of % damage formulas
- All adventurers get slight changes in skill % damages
- Skill changes can be found here: KMS Chaos Patch Skills

To think that Nexon had thought good and hard about the adjustments made to the jobs in Maplestory when they came up with Big Bang. But I guess they still need to tweak the skills due to their new damage calculator. I’m not going into much detail because this is KMST. T for Tespia which is a test server. Something we should not rely 100% on but it’s a good indication that there might be a patch for the Big Bang patch. How typical of Nexon.
What i dont like about this patch is how it affects Dual Blade in terms of one skill which is Sudden Raid which will be removed. I’m not sure if players who spend @Cash or NX on the Sudden Raid skill book will be compensated but for now, i suggest that all maplers do not spend @Cash or NX on Sudden Raid.
At first Nexon makes Dual Blade really attractive to well, attract players to spend real money on a character and 6 months later, they decide to weaken them slightly because they realised how imbalanced that character is. Then after another 3 months, they could decide to remove one of the skills completely from their skill list. It’s absurd, in my opinion.
But change is for the better. …i guess.
If you want a complete list of what skills were tweaked in KMST, click on the link below.
Okay. Most of you have heard and read of the release of Dual Blade in MapleSEA and the Big Bang Patch which was released in KMS and also will be released in GMS (by Christmas 2010). You must also have heard that Dual Blades will be nerfed terribly.
You begin to wonder, is this true?
Are they nerfed that badly?
Should i spend a lot of money buying the equipments before they’re out?
Is it worth it?
Are you going to listen to other people without reading my post?
Well i’m here to aid you in your decision. The Dual Blade skills which are nerfed are mostly for 1st and 2nd job skills where as 3rd and 4th job skills have been mostly boosted.
Read on to see which skills i’m talking about.
I didn’t realise how out-dated i was.
So i was browsing through the MSEA Prediction thread and came upon reading the ‘Outstanding contents from KMST”. I noticed that there were two titles i wasn’t aware of; Guild Skills and Ultimate Adventurers.
A system of guild skills have been implemented in KMS. Its where the guild can collect funding and spend mesos on guild skills that can boost your maplestory adventures. For example, increased attack, increased critical rates, increase exp gained and etc. as long as you are a member of that guild.
I think this is awesome.
On the other hand, Ultimate Adventures is the continuation of Knights of Cygnus. Once your Knight of Cygnus character reaches level 120, you are given the option to create an Ultimate Adventurer. Once you accept, you will be give an Ultimate Adventurer character starting from level 50.

Missing skill in Evan Characters
We have receive feedback from Maplers in Delphinus/Eridanus World regarding the loss of skills and skill points of their Evan Character after today’s Server Check. The Game Developer has been informed and is currently looking into this issue.
Should there be any Evan Character from other world facing this same issue, please do not hesitate to send in enquiry to iBox to inform us.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused.
A wonderful beginning for the month of June.
This announcement was made by MapleSEA admins regarding the missing Evan skills for the worlds of Delphinus/Eridanus. This happened after the server check and cash shop maintenance on 1st of June 2010 at 9:30am till 12:00pm.
I’m a member of Delphinus and what i discovered was that all my skills were reset to zero, “0” and what skills i could add was 6 points into the Beginner skills; Recovery, Three Snails and Nimble Feet.
I hope the Maple Team sorts this out ASAP and hopefully no items/mesos are lost.

Critical Bug in Evan Charcters for Delphinus & Eridanus World
Due to the critical bug in the game system, we are unable to recover skill points and quest information for Evan Class in the Delphinus and Eridanus World at this moment. However, in order not to cause any further game disruption to your gaming experience while the Game Developer, Nexon, is looking into this matter, a reasonable amount of Skill Points will be added into your affected Evan Character. All affected Evan Class Characters who were blocked previously will be unblocked and we will continue to work closely with the developers to recover your loss.
After all these issues are resolved, we will be giving out a token of appreciation to those affected players to thank you for your kind patience about this matter.
Once there are further updates, we will update them on the website immediately.

Maplers of Delphinus and Eridanus may have to re-do all quests once Nexon is done “fixing” the bug. We’ll watch and see what they do next.
