|  ALL CLASSES 

The idea behind Succession started from a simple wish; I wanted to see the tough Warrior holding his Longsword and Shield, and the nimble Ranger rain down her arrows from the skies above.


Compared to combat in a class's Awakened form, pre-Awakening combat was already outstanding and well-constructed—but we wanted to go one step further and bring out the full potential of the pre-Awakening combat system to make it more impactful to the gameplay. However, this could not be achieved without a major revamp of existing systems that would make pre-Awakening combat equal to Awakening combat.


So, we focused on three major points when we began preparing the Succession Updates.


First, we worked with the goal that Main Weapon Skills must be able to compete against Awakening Weapon Skills. It was important for us to make sure that Succession did not fall behind Awakening in PvE as Adventurers went out to defeat monsters.


Second, we reworked certain Main Weapon Skills to elevate the appeal of pre-Awakening combat. Although there were variations on how this was implemented for each class, the changes were all aimed at matching the appeal that Main Weapon Skills have always had.


Third, we wanted to make it easier for Adventurers to master the controls of the Main Weapons. Main Weapon Skills had the downside of having too many skills available, making it difficult to get used to. With that in mind, we created fewer skills that will deliver the same amount of action as the Awakening Weapon Skills. Succession will bring tactical upgrades with their main skills and supplement them with Absolute Skills—just as Adventurers did with Awakening Weapon Skills.


So, we present Succession not as an upgrade, but as a second path for Adventurers. It presents to you a crossroads where you can choose between Awakening and Succession, making our combat system even more enjoyable while offering versatility and choice to all our Adventurers. Additionally, we will continue to work on balancing the classes as the Succession Updates continue to roll out.
