Easy Arkarium Strategy (flyknight2’s version)

December 20, 2013 Leave a comment

Easy Arkarium is 10 times more easier than Normal Arkarium. Putting Easy Arkarium to death is not much of a problem. Still, many does not know of the strategy to reduce or avoid death.

1. The Mobs

MAPLESTORY 2013-12-19 22-20-50-509Arkarium summons his mobs to heal him. Taking them out first if a great idea because they heals Arkarium every second. The more mobs he summons, the more HP he will heal. That means you’ll face a lot of problem to defeat him.

2. Damage Reflection (DR)

ark1

Damage reflection is casted randomly by Arkarium, it is one of the main cause of death. He either casts Cancel Weapon Attack, Cancel Magic Attack, or Damage Reflection. There is no specific timing for it so keep your eyes peeled to see when he casts Damage Reflection. Remember, his damage reflection has high damage.

Below are some guide to overcome damage reflection:

  • Hero, Dark Knight, Paladin: Use Magic Crash whenever the DR animation appears, this will prevent him from casting it.
  • Xenon: Using Easy’s System should help in doing some damage.
  • Demon Avenger: If you’re bored, just use Inhale Vatality to hit some “1” damage.
  • Phantom: Using Vol D’ Ame can steal his DR.
  • Kaiser: Whenever Kaiser’s Majesty/Final Form/Final Trance is used, just continue hitting.
  • Others: Just stop attacking.

3. Pain Enhancers

There are times when you saw this on top of your head. I’m not sure what it does but I can ensure it enhances the damage you receive. Not curing it can be trouble when caring your HP. Using All-Cure Potions will not do the trick. Only the potions dropped by the mobs summoned by Arkarium will do the trick. Pick one up, then say bye bye to the status.

4. Instant Death

ark3

Arkarium got 1 skill that will immediately kill everyone in the room. Some managed to avoid them but most do not. By doing the proper way and counting the proper time will do the trick.

Firstly, Bishops can protect themselves or others by using Holy Magic Shell or Heaven’s Door. While Phantom can survive once with Final Feint.

MAPLESTORY 2013-12-19 22-20-35-526

When fighting, always notice Arkarium’s HP bar. Because by hitting his HP to around 70-80% will make him trigger the first instant death. After he triggers the first instant death, he will use another and another at an interval of 1 minute 30 seconds (more or less).

MAPLESTORY 2013-12-19 22-23-24-937

As his HP drops to around 45-50%, it will trigger another instant death (regardless of the 1 minute 30 seconds) and initiate the “law-breaker”. Law-breaker simply means it breaks the law above. He changes the way he triggers it. Instead of 1 minute 30 seconds, he changes it to 1 minute.

MAPLESTORY 2013-12-19 22-28-32-504

 

Also, when his HP reaches around 30%, he will use another instant death (also regardless with the above laws). Then, he will said “you must be dangerous one… I am going to do my best for this fight”. As he said this, he will trigger another instant death after a few seconds. Then, every instant death goes back to 1 minute intervals. So if you died due to instant death with this situation appearing, do not respawn first, wait for it to use the second one instead so you can save your death count and EXP.

MAPLESTORY 2013-12-19 22-22-51-294

How to avoid you ask me. Well, there are also laws to this. First of all, Arkarium’s position is the key to success the trick. Notice the picture above, Arkarium’s max position from the right is that spot. If he goes any further to the left, it is hopeless for you to survive instant deaths. Note, pushing/pulling does not work on Arkarium.

Once that is done, just simply move to the left corner of the map once it uses the Instant Death skill. But this is not an easy task. The instant death has a very quick effect. Different classes have different mobility. The only way I can say is you must have practice to know when to start running to the left. Because Phantom is the only one fast enough to run away. Other classes all will face problems with running.

End

I guess that is all I can say. Good luck and enjoy bossing!

Happy New Year 2013 – A new beginning: The end

January 1, 2013 Leave a comment

11 days ago we survived the apocalypse! YAY!!

The year 2012 ended really fast, don’t you think so? I could just surf back my videos throughout the year and see how I did in the year.

This year will be a busy year for me, I have to care for my academic studies, piano lessons and exams, religious activities and others. As a planning, I decided to stop updating this blog page. I have some few reasons to support my decision.

  • My posts are mostly copied

Yes, if you notice carefully my post for Justice updates, you can find out that I copied the update notes from other blogs like shakar or orangemushroom.

I don’t feel like copy others’ anymore. Instead of copy from them, why don’t ask my readers to read theirs? It might work for most of us, consider that MapleSEA updates are copied from KMS and GMS.

  • Time

In my previous Justice posts, I spent days copying them. This takes much of my time which I can use those time to do other things like hanging out with my friends.

I know that KMS posts take hours, but they have that time to update their posts. But not me, and the best thing is not to compare myself to them.

It’s not the end of my blogging

For most of you don’t know, I have another blog page. You can access it below:

ArticleFly

For now there is only Mandarin posts, I will type them when I feel like it. Some of my time is invested at that page.

I will continue blogging, except that it’s not related to Maplestory updates.

What about Facebook?

flyknight2’s official page will not be closed, it will be up and running as usual. I might share some pictures too.

fly, are you quitting?

This question doesn’t have an answer yet. For now I will continue with the game but will be less active due to insufficient time.

When I cannot cope with my studies, I will quit temporary. I might be quitting permanently on 2014 where college starts.

Youtube?

Youtube page will not be shut down as well, I know there are no videos uploaded recently because there is NOTHING I can record.

I will remain semi-active on Youtube because making videos consumes lot of time.

Final words

I, flyknight2, wishes all my friends, family and fans, not forgetting my fellow readers a Happy New Year: 2013. May this year be a great year for you, accomplish new things, Happy Mapling as usual and you might hear from me next time. 🙂

Once again, thanks for supporting me. Hope you all will continue supporting me.

-flyknight2

Happy New Year!!!

MapleSEA Justice – Liberation of Azwan

December 5, 2012 Leave a comment

Maple0003

Story

Azwan is an ancient underground city beneath the Nihal Desert. It was recently rediscovered by the Cygnus Knights, following the attempt by its leader, Hilla, to usurp Empress Cygnus’ throne.

Hundreds of years ago, Azwan was a beautiful and thriving metropolis. The beautiful and powerful Hilla, who was a chief sharmaness, craved more power. In exchange for eternal power, youth and beauty, she betrayed her city to become a commander under Black Mage.

She took control of Azwan and used necromancy to revive its dead population as minions in her army. She lined the city with giant, magical totems to recapture the souls of her fallen forces so they could returnagain.

The obelisk that serves as the entrance to Azwan has recently reappeared in the desert and has come under investigation by the Cygnus Knights. Brave adventurers can join the fight, leading forces from Ereve in their battle to defeat Hilla’s army and free the enslaved souls of the citizens of Azwan.

Requirements

  1. Be level 40 or higher.
  2. Move to Azwan lobby via Mirror of Dimension.

MapleStory 2012-12-05 21-38-25-481

There are four tiers of battle

  • Level 40-79
  • Level 80-119
  • Level 120-159
  • Level 160-200

Game modes

There are 4 game modes:

  1. Attack
  2. Occupy
  3. Defend
  4. Supply

General similaraties (Besides Supply mode)

  • They all have 4 difficulties – Easy, Normal, Hard, Hell.
  • Cygnus monster minions will spawn to help.
  • Higher difficulty levels feature more powerful monsters in greater numbers, but more Honor EXP and Azwan coins are earned if victorious.

  • The Maximum number of players allowed: Six players.

Occupy and Attack mode

How to play?

  1. Stop enemies from progressing left.
  2. Destroy the Guardian Tower on the right to win.
  • If enemies reach the left side, the Guardian Tower will recover HP.

The Guardian Tower (Right)

The Guardian Tower uses two powerful beam attacks that will deal damage without regard for any avoidability or invulnerabilities that you might have. Use Cygnus Minions as tanker.

The Owl Tower (Centre)

The Owl Tower drops rocks and deals massive damage. These rocks deal damage without regard for any avoidability or invulnerabilities that you might have. Take cover by trying to take cover while they hover in the air for a moment before dropping.

When in Hard or Hell Mode

Hilla’s Altar will appear in Hard and Hell modes to increase the challenge.

Differences
There are some differences between the Occupy mode altars and the Attack mode altars:

  • Altars in Occupy mode have a wider attack range than those in Attack mode.
  • Altars in Attack mode have an additional skill that recovers the Guardian Tower’s HP.

Defend Mode

This mode focuses on a tower defence strategy. Prevent the Cygnus Faith Stone from being destroyed to win.

There are two strategies to win:

  • Smash all of the ballistae.

  • Protect the Cygnus Faith Stone until time runs out.

Supply Mode

This area functions much like a normal hunting mini dungeon. There is no difficulty option for this mode.

You can accept the quest between 2p.m. to 8p.m..

  • You can view your Honor level, Honor EXP, and Inner Abilities in the character stats menu.

MapleSEA Justice: Mysterious Thief Phantom

November 13, 2012 Leave a comment

Background

Phantom was famous among the wealthy merchants and noblemen. He deliberately left traces after each steal but even then, people did not know who he was so they called him the “Phantom”.

Phantom was honored throughout Maple World. However, the death of Aria(the Empress before Cygnus), forced him to join the Heroes to seek revenge on the Black Mage. He had fallen in love with Aria while attempting to steal the great treasure of Ereve.

He sought out one of the heroes, Freud, for an invitation to join and was accepted to be one of the Heroes to fight against the Black Mage.

After a fierce battle, Phantom, together with the other four heroes, sealed away the Black Mage and saved Maple World. However, due to the curse inflicted by the Black Mage, all the Heroes, except Freud who died in the battle, were trapped in ice and went into a deep slumber.

A hundred years later, Phantom woke up from the curse. He infiltrated Ereve, where a meeting was in progress. Hilla, a commander of the Black Wings, posed as an Empress by presenting a Skaia (a jewel said to glow in the hands of the Empress) that glowed in her hands but did not glow in Cygnus’s.

^ Hilla comes in

Luckily, Phantom came to the rescue. He declared the Skaia held by Hilla a fake and destroyed it, saying that he had the real Skaia. That prompted Hilla to back off and flee from Ereve, but not before she told him that Maple World was already in “his” (the Black Mage) hands. Phantom then gave Cygnus the real Skaia and returned to Crystal Garden.

Short guide to Zen: 4th Job Advancement

November 7, 2012 14 comments

Here is a short guide to Zen’s 4th job advancement:

  • Once you reach level 120, you will receive a quest for Aide. Accept that quest and head to the Nautilus. Then, find and talk to Aide.
  • Aide will tell you to go to Magatia to get 2 Weird Clue from Homunscullo, loot the green powder it drops. It is the item you will need. Once you collected everything, head back to Nautilus and find Aide.
  • Next, you will be told to head to Mu Lung to find 10 Memory Clues. Get them from Sage Cat, loot the purple powder it drops. Find Aide again when you’re done.
  • After that, Aide will ask you to go to Leafre to find 10 Imporant Clues. You can hunt them from Black Kentaurus. The drop rates are quite low for this one. The quest item is white powder. Return to Nautilus and talk to Aide when you’re finish collecting them.
  • This time, Aide needs you to go to Mu Lung again. But this time she give you an item, use this at the map Entrance to Sky Forest (First map at the left of Mu Lung, map filled with Chipmunks). Then, you will be teleported to another map with a boss in it. Kill it and return to Nautilus.

There will be a short storyline here, just continue talking and you will be advanced to 4th job.

It’s a great idea to plan your journey 🙂

Good luck!

MapleSEA gave quite a low number of information. So finding the correct info will be hard. My best choice is copy from GMS.

Oh, the character creation part is changed.

New System

The Character Card System allows players who have a minimum Level 30 character in their Maple ID, to generate a Character Card.

One character in the Maple ID can obtain 1 x character card. If a player has 3 characters in their Maple ID, they can generate 3 x character cards.

Each Character Card has a Rank. The Cards with higher Ranks will have better effects.

The minimum level requirement for the Part-Time Job is Level 30.

Players can select the characters to activate the Part-Time Job System via the Character Selection Screen. A menu will be opened upon clicking the Part-Time Job button in the upper right area of the screen.

There are five types of part time jobs. Up to three characters per world can be assigned to different part time jobs. Part-Time Job rewards are different for each type. Rewards are given by NPC Ms. Appropriation who is located in most towns.

Characters that are doing a Part-Time Job cannot be logged in.

The Navigation feature is not provided for special maps such as event maps, hidden streets, and certain other maps that have restrictions.

Level-up Guide

This new menu recommends quests, hunting grounds, and other content based on your level. Very functional as Party Quests and Monster Park undergo revamp.
