|  ALL CLASSES

Just as we did in the past week, we focused on balancing certain characters for today's update as well. Major updates are as follows.

 

First for the Warrior, we increased Reckless Blow's total damage, as well as adjusted movements during Head Chase. While the damage per hit of Reckless Blow has been reduced, we've increased the total number of hits thereby creating a better impression of inflicting greater damage. Head Chase was used by certain Adventurers (pressing Q during Head Chase) to cancel into combos, so we improved its movement to be a smoother transition to other skills so other adventurers wouldn't have to resort to using such means.

 

For Ranger, we focused on the capabilities of the Awakening skills. We adjusted the previously rather long cooldown times of certain skills to increase their usage, and changed the Air Smash effect of Flow: Disillusion into a Down Smash effect, adding the possibility to combo into other Down Smash skills such as Flow: Rooting. We are ongoing in our research to improve Awakening skill combos and their capabilities for the Ranger.


For Maehwa, we wanted to rectify the attack range of certain Awakening skills, as well as increase their usage. Particularly for Maehwa Awakening, there are a lot of skills which involve her moving forward to attack, of which we extended the frontal attack range of certain skills, thus improving their ease of use. Also, we changed Petal Bloom during its charging phase to combo into Sleet Steps.


Regarding Wizard, there were a lot of comments about the inconvenience due to the lack of a skill which transitioned from main weapon to awakening weapon stance. Therefore we made the Dark Flame skill transition from main weapon to awakening weapon stance, as well as allowing Water Sphere and Flow: Aqua Bomb to combo into other skills. In addition, we now made Evasion and Teleport useable during skills.


Witch Succession has the specialty of fast cast times when comboing with skills after using Magical Evasion. Here we felt that we wanted to further emphasize the uniqueness of Magical Evasion as playing the pivotal role in the Witch's survival and combos. Now whenever the Witch uses the Magical Evasion skill, we added the effect of her disappearing momentarily from all players. We wish to further make distinct the individual charm and personality of the Wizard and Witch classes, and are looking into further ideas at the moment.


For Dark Knight we also focused on her Awakening skills. First, we changed Air Strike to have the same effects in both Awakening and Succession. We changed the non-Awakening Air Strike skill's Bound effect to only apply if the first hit did not apply the Bound effect, which used to apply to all good extra hits. In addition we listened to your feedback and supplemented skills that weren't being utilized much, which included Grip of Grudge, Cluster of Despair, Trap of Vedir, among others.


We sought to supplement the somewhat frustrating movements of Striker Succession. We improved Discharge Energy to activate more smoothly for the Crimson Fang - Flow: Bombardment combo by allowing Strikers to freely choose between the two different types of Crimson Fang combos based on the situation. We also changed Prime: Wolf's Fang's attacks to be focused on the targeted enemies during use.


For Ninja, we focused on improvements for hunting convenience and speed. Therefore, we increased the damage of certain skills as well as the ability to combo with them, and changed the Drastic Measure skill to be even more powerful when used during Asura state.


We are carrying out class improvements with our research and testing based on your important feedback. We will do our best for the sake of all adventurers.
