As far as I can tell, the following things have changed from the kmst version:
Yellow Aura's passive gives 2 attack speed now, in addition to 15% evasion rate, 30 speed, and raising the speed cap by 20. The aura itself still only gives 1 attack speed.
Drain Aura's passive gives 3% hp back per kill. The regular recovery's still 1000 hp every 4 seconds though.
Blue Aura's defense bonus is back to 150%.
Battle Mastery's damage% buff is lowered from 30% to 20%.
Nerve Stimulation gives 25% evasion rate, 30 speed, and raises the maximum speed cap by an additional 20.
Dark Aura's active effect is buffed to 20% damage. The passive is down to 15%.
Debuff Aura is applied for 8 seconds, after mobs are exposed to it for 4 seconds.
Spell Boost's damage buff has been reduced to 10%. The other bonuses stay the same though.
Death Contract's damage formula is reworked from 170% + 2% * per character level to 200% +2% * per character level. Cooldown while bossing is lowered to 5 seconds.
Battle Master still gives an additional hit to blow type moves for 40 seconds. The cooldown is down to 120 seconds.
BKB still has the 9 second cooldown, and is down from 700% to 650%.

Most of the bonuses lost with aura were returned in the passives, with the exception of damage %, which they felt needed to be nerfed a lot. Wonder why.
Doesn't look like your blow animations are getting changed anytime soon, either.

On one hand, battle mage lost 45% damage, several attack speed tiers, and enormous hitboxes.
On the other, [url=http://www.insoya.com/bbs/zboard.php?id=ucc&no=52187]blow attacks don't sound stupid anymore.[/url]
I'll take it.

It's worth mentioning that the 30% magic attack from spell boost more than makes up for the loss of damage %, which has diminishing returns anyways.
**Edit:** spell boost just gives 30 flat magic attack and that's gross
I have a feeling that kms was trying to go for a more mobile playstyle for a long time already, ever since the canceled revamp. Spamming bkb was fun, but it gets pretty boring and tedious quickly, and I think the new dark lightning and teleport upgrades should help fill in that gap. Dark Genesis's quick cast and 18 second cd are nice too, not to mention Death Contract. The speed cap thing's annoying, but reaching cap from fast(3) shouldn't be too difficult.
I'm really only worried about DoT's replacement. Everything else is growing on me.

KMST ended early. Funny, because the last time KMS saw the last BaM revamp, they hated it so much they had to cancel it. I guess Nexon grew a backbone.[/quote]

Or the players like it. Does anyone think that Nexon will try again if enough players scream at them, or will they just shrug?

It's actually 30% magic attack.

Oh, how about that. Apparently the dark aura passive was changed from damage to 15% magic attack too.
This revamp's just super.

I agree 100%, this revamp was great IMO. I can understand why people are raging but for me it doesn't bother me at all. I cannot wait for this to hit GMS.
