September 3, 2021 Global Lab Patch Notes

When using their longbow, Rangers had limited mobility as well as combos to utilize. Most of the skills did not allow Rangers to use other skills until the skill animation ended. This became less of a problem when Adventurers got the hang of the class, but for new Adventurers, this made it difficult to learn the class and was a source of frustration. Therefore, we made her move more freely while keeping the feel of playing Ranger intact.

As more classes were able to close the gap, Rangers started to struggle to compete against them as they lacked stamina and damage when using the skill Blasting Gust and comboing off of it. Therefore, the skill Flow: Bypassing Wind was reworked. Even though Flow: Bypassing Wind’s rate of fire was reduced, it allows Rangers save stamina while using it. Additionally, the skill Tearing Arrow was improved to help Rangers keep enemies at bay by making it fire at full charge when used immediately after Flow: Bypassing Wind.

For Awakening Rangers, there was a lot of feedback that she lacked ranged skills. Therefore, we added some ranged skills to her skill kit. Additionally, Ranger lacked any defensive capabilities while Wind Step was on cooldown. This made Rangers extremely vulnerable during that time, so we reduced its cooldown to 2 sec and added a movement skill. The added movement skill can currently only be used to move in one direction, and the skill Riding the Wind was reworked to be able to fire at that location.
The skills Flow: Rooting, Flow: Piercing Wind, and Flow: Heavenly Knot will be combined with the skills Vine Knot and Spirit’s Shackles. Ranger’s powerful skills like Regeneration and Nature’s Tremble have long cooldowns as they dealt significant damage compared to other skills. These two skills were improved by reducing their cooldowns significantly, making it possible to use them more often.
The damage of the skill Flow: Disillusion, that dropped in efficiency when hitting multiple targets, was improved to hit all targets in an area for equal damage. The skill Wailing Wind was improved in the same way.
Through this update, Rangers are now able to perform Back Attacks with their ranged skills and increased their damage overall. Moving forward, her PvP damage output will continue to be adjusted until it becomes similar to other classes. As for her PvE capabilities, they are expected to be improved in the future.

September 10, 2021 Global Lab Patch Notes

Main Weapon

● Flow: Bypassing Wind - Changed the skill description.
● Flow: Bypassing Wind - Fixed the issue where using the skill from the right after using it from the left would first activate Blasting Gust.
● Riding the Wind – Improved the skill so it can be activated from the ground and not only in mid-air.
- The skill was improved so you can use it for backward attacks when activating the skill from the ground.

With this Black Desert Global Lab update, the skill is set to be activated with the skill Riding the Wind. However, it will be separated into another skill for our next update.

● Razor Wind - Fixed the issue where you could not combo Evasive Explosion Shot while crouching during the skill.
● Blasting Gust - Fixed the issue where you couldn’t combo the following skills after using this skill:

Succession

● Call of the Earth - Removed the spirit enhancement buff from the skill and combined it with the basic succession skill.
- An extra spirit attack effect will now be applied to certain succession skills without having to use Call of the Earth.

Previously, a spirit attack buff was applied when activating Call of the Earth to make it feel as if you were defeating monsters with the spirits together at your side. However, it was unnecessarily tiring to constantly activate Call of the Earth when defeating monsters over a long period of time. This is why we improved the buff to be applied at all times.

● Prime: Ultimate: Blasting Gust - Improved by applying the spirit attack buff upon hit.
● Increased the hit damage of the spirit attack buff.

Before

After

Hit Damage 123% x 2

● Prime: Razor Wind - Changed the Spirit Hits to only apply during the 1st hit.

 

Awakening

Awakened Ranger has seen hit damage adjustments to several skills. Breezy Blade and Flow: Rushing Wind in particular were two skills with a small area of attack but large damage.

Would love to see her Passive getting upgrade as well. Movement speed buff is good. But 10% is just not on par with 10% of others stats like attack speed, accuracy or evasion.
So maybe give it a little tweak more please.
