Updates Oct 12, 2022, 10:00 (UTC+8) October 12, 2022 (Wed) Update Details - Class Changes

CLASS CHANGES

Developer Commentary:

Skill point costs have been adjusted for all classes. You can now learn all Succession or Awakening skills with 1,000 total skill points. We hope this change will alleviate some inconveniences you might have felt from overwhelmingly high skill point costs when leveling a new character. Thank you for all your suggestions regarding skill points.
On top of this, the new passive skill "Weight Training" has been added to all classes. You can spend your skill points to increase your Weight Limit by up to 150 LT. Maxing this passive skill out requires 1,500 skill points, but to keep it from being too much of a skill point sink for most players, the first 120 LT will cost only 500 skill points in total, and the remaining 30 LT will cost 1,000 points.

Common
  •  Skill point costs have been adjusted for all classes.
    •  Skills with "Level 55 or below" requirements will automatically be learned without any skill point cost.            
      • However, skills and passives that provide additional effects to these skills still cost skill points.            
    •  The total skill point cost for learning all Succession or Awakening skills has been adjusted to 1,000.            
※ As mentioned through "[Notices] Skill Reset for all Characters," you can receive [Event] Secret Book of Old Moon (3 Days) from Challenges (Y) if you log in before the scheduled maintenance on Oct 26 (Wed), 2022.
※ You can enter the Battle Arena from Lv. 56 and adjust skill add-ons via "Battle Arena Skill Instructor" Tachros after the maintenance on March 23, 2022 (Wed). 
 
  • The passive skill Weight Training I to X has been added to all classes.
    • You can increase your weight limit by spending your skill points on this passive.

In addition, Prime: Darkness Released grants Forward Guard when used backward, allowing her another option to retreat when needed.

TAMER

Developer Commentary

The efficiency of riding Heilang has been improved for Succession Tamer.

MAEHWA

Developer Commentary

With this patch, we focused on improving Succession Maehwa's ability to freely attack and retreat, and the consistency of her attacks during Red Blade.
Succession Maehwa's PvP gameplay was focused on movement skills such as Prime: Carver or Prime: Dragon Bite to approach the enemy, and on AoE Floating from Prime: Red Moon. However, this combat style heavily relied on debuffs for it to be effective, which proved to be difficult. So we replaced Stub Arrow with Prime: Charged Stub Arrow so it can be instantly activated to deal considerable damage to targets without the use of combos. Furthermore, we added Red: Blooming with Super Armor during Red Blade so she can reliably counterattack the enemy.

Main Weapon, Succession
Red: Blooming
  • New skill - Red: Blooming has been added.
Skill Description Visual
 
Stub Arrow: Triple Shot

VALKYRIE

Developer Commentary

There weren't any drastic overall changes to Succession Valkyrie, but significant changes were made to Judgment of Light and Divine Power, her core skills. First, Prime: Judgment of Light I, II, and III were changed to be activated on their own. Its Casting Speed was also increased, so we expect to see this skill be used more often in PvE and PvP. For Divine Power, we improved Prime: Divine Power and Ultimate: Divine Power to activate as a single skill when both skills are acquired, allowing for concise skill motion and high damage at the same time. This will also make the skill more effective in both PvE and PvP.
However, since these two skills were representative of Valkyrie's past playstyle, we expect some of you to not welcome this change. We will check your feedback on Succession Valkyrie after this patch and keep on making improvements.

Main Weapon, Succession
Ultimate: Righteous Charge
  • Changed to a flow version of Righteous Charge.
    • Automatically inflicts SP Explosion after using Righteous Charge.

    • Change number of hits and PvP Damage Reduction Rate.

KUNOICHI

Developer Commentary:

We've made improvements on Awakening Kunoichi with a focus on using command keys, namely by making it more efficient to switch between her shortsword and sah chakram, as well as improve her overall attack speed in Awakening (with her sah chakram). First, we've minimized the inconvenience of having to switch weapons by maintaining her sah chakram even when moving backward (W) after Block Jump when acquiring Flow: Block Jump in Awakening. We've also made it possible to activate Half Moon Slash with her shortsword via hotkey for a quicker transition. 
We've also improved some of her sah chakram skills, including Half Moon Slash, Lunar Dash, Danse Macabre, etc. to combo into Ninjutsu: Block Jump more quickly for cleaner attacks on an approach. Chain Crash: Sah Chakram and Moon Storm combos were improved and Lunatic Discus was changed into a short, simple skill that deals immediate, high damage, increasing the attack speed of sah chakram skills overall.

WIZARD, WITCH 

Developer Commentary

We started with balancing the strength that comes from Teleport and Ultimate: Teleport for Witch and Wizard. Now both Witch and Wizard can activate Ultimate: Teleport respectively. Although many of our Adventurers have requested for this update, we were hesitant to do so for fear of not being able to maintain unique qualities between the two classes. These skills are shared between the two classes, and as they greatly impact their performance, we realize we should have made this update a bit sooner. It seems a bit late, but we will continue to make improvements to Witch and Wizard moving forward (Please note that we've added new effects for Succession Wizard since Ultimate: Teleport was also separated).

Main Weapon, Succession

ARCHER

Developer Commentary

Archer's crossbow is being used as a secondary option as his greatbow covers a wider range and causes greater destruction. With this in mind, for this update, we've improved Archer's crossbow to perform abilities that are required, different from those performed with his greatbow so that you can better utilize his crossbow. Also, we've changed Storm of Light so that he can consecutively fire arrows more quickly with his crossbow than with his greatbow. In addition to this change, we've changed Light's Mark to Shadebound Beam with which he can aim at the target.

NOVA

Developer Commentary

Awakening Nova's past overperformance led to her Star's Breath recovery and defensive effects being adjusted. After these changes, Awakening Nova players now tend to utilize the quoratum to overcome the sting's weaknesses. As a result, her identity as an aggressive, fierce attacker suffered. With this patch, we focused on reinforcing her offensive capabilities.
Star's Breath recovery is significantly increased with your sting. Also, the cooldown of En Garde, Combust Life, and other skills have been reduced so you can mainly utilize accel skills. Furthermore, to minimize the sluggish feeling while En Garde is inactive, we improved the damage of certain skills and fluidity of Break Orbit and Swooping Ring. To balance out these enhancements, we tuned down the defensive capabilities in Guard with your quoratum so Succession Nova is not overshadowed in this aspect.

Main Weapon, Succession
Binding Star
  • Changed skill damage.
    • Attack damage 346% x4 → 1280% x7

SAGE

Developer Commentary

First, for Succession Sage, we've made changes to the skill Overdrive so that when you use it after it stacks to 10 levels, the effects remain. The increase in Casting Speed and cooldown reduction effects for Reset will also be applied. 
For Awakening Sage, we've made more changes to the skill, Bolt. You can now quickly combo into other skills after Bolt without having to use Shock Relay (skill cancellation). Also, we've added the Stiffness debuff to Shock Relay and made changes so that Shock Relay can instantly be activated with your main weapon (when you've locked Ator's Thorn).

CORSAIR

Developer Commentary

Corsair was adjusted in the past due to her Mermaid form being too powerful, but after recent assessments, we concluded that she is now in need of some improvements. Mareca: Spiral of Dreams was changed so it can combo with other Mareca skills. This skill will be effective in situations where Mareca: Sea of Dreams may not be. Additionally, the "No Guard Gauge recovery" effect on Prime: Heirloom of the Crow now applies to all Succession skills, enhancing her unique role.
For Awakening Corsair, we improved her options in aerial combat. Mareca Swing can now be used to launch yourself in the air, allowing evasive movement and consistent damage while airborne. Furthermore, the additional attack of Pirate's Life For Me was changed to a ranged projectile, improving the fluidity of combos when used with harpoon attacks.
And finally, Labao of the Slippery Scallywags' has been improved to more reliably support the Cap'n.

DRAKANIA

Developer Commentary

There were significant changes to Awakening Drakania. Markthanan's Heart was improved to also apply its effects in Awakening. Since wing-spreading skills in Awakening (Dragonblood: Savage Decree, Dragonblood: Doombringer, Hexeblood: Aerial Burst, etc.) grant HP recovery, we expect greater stability in PvE and PvP.
Additionally, Hexeblood was improved to better fit her theme. The additional Attack Speed from this state was increased from 10% to 15%, and "All AP +10" was added to it as well. Staying in Hexeblood form will now be viable for PvE, and you will be able to freely alternate between Hexeblood and Dragonblood as we originally intended.
