We have been giving much thought to the abundant feedback we have been receiving from our Adventurers from around the world. The first issue that many Adventurers brought up was how slow, and therefore frustrating, the class was to play before Succession. In response to this, we've increased the casting speed of the Absolute and Succession skills. The second most common piece of feedback was about Sage's stamina consumption when using the skill Rift Chain. Rift Chain was originally devised to allow Sage to move without allowing the enemy to know his location. Furthermore, the skill was meant to be used at its highest level as an invincible dodge move that can be used even while on cooldown. We limited the use of this skill with stamina consumption in light of its remarkable utility. However, many Adventurers felt this to be too limiting for Sage to fulfill his potential. In response to this, we reduced this skill's cooldown and stamina consumption. In addition, the lower levels of Rift Chain can now be used more often. Also, we fixed a number of bugs and improved Sage's combo capabilities. We hope that you will continue to show interest for Sage and invite you to continue to give us your feedback.
