Job Rank II Skill Rebalance

In an ongoing effort to improve the game experience for all players, regardless of what selections they make in class or build, we improved skills for different classes that we felt were lacking.

These adjustments may not be the final changes we make to classes, so please continue providing feedback. We are especially interested in hearing from players who try out some of the lesser-used skill branches after these adjustments are made.

Please bear in mind that not all suggestions made by players could be accommodated, as some of them run the risk of creating greater balance problems in the future. We tried to use your feedback as much as possible when planning out these changes, and will keep them in mind when we examine class balance again in the future.

Archer

Archer players suffered from dealing a little less damage than the other DPS who were bringing buffs to the table. Moreover, their Wind Focus, despite potentially being more powerful than their Fire Focus, felt very clunky to play due to animation locks. We boosted their damage a little bit so that they can even the playing field when facing down a single target, and improved the main attraction of the Wind Focus while also making Greater Sharp Eyes a more useful tool.

  • Flame Arrow's damage has been increased across the board (8%, 15%, and 16% respectively per stage), and the damage of the three-arrow combo has been made constant, instead of being heavily front-loaded. Additionally, Flame Arrow IV's damage was increased by 22%.
SkillLevel 1Level 2Level 3Level 4
Previous Tier I Flame Arrow 201% + 88% + 88% 219% + 96% + 96% 237% + 104% + 104% 255% + 112% + 112%

New Tier IV Flame Arrow 80% + 36% 88% + 40% 96% + 44% 104% + 48%
  • Damage from each Multi-Drive Shot arrow has been increased by 30%.

  • Greater Sharp Eyes further increases the amount of damage dealt by the Archer, and the buff's duration has been increased to 40 seconds (up from 30 seconds).

  • Twirling Wind Arrow's channel animation was reduced by 40%. Please note that, despite rumors to the contrary, this skill is also affected by Attack Speed.

Assassin

Give me more Spirit! Assassin players have been suffering from issues of SP starvation for a very long time, which often led to a lot of memes about them. Needless to say, many of you commented that when the class works, it feels right. So, in an attempt to address the issue, we made a few cost adjustments. While these don't fully address the SP issue at its core, it should hopefully greatly alleviate the burden. Adjusting Redoubled Pain to be able to critical hit on it's main damage source will require careful monitoring to make sure it's not too powerful.

  • Redoubled Pain's SP cost has been reduced to 9 SP (from 11 SP).
  • Redoubled Pain can now score a critical hit when consuming the poison.
  • Binding Punishment's SP cost has been reduced to 15 SP (from 20 SP).
  • Dark Mire's SP cost has been reduced to 30 SP (from 40 SP).
  • Assassin's Circle can now score a critical hit.
  • Shadow Stance has gained additional Dark Damage.
SkillLevel 1Level 2Level 3Level 4
Previous Dark Damage Bonus 9% 18% 27% 36%
New Dark Damage Bonus 10% 20% 30% 40%

Berserker

The Berserker's Bleed Focus is notoriously powerful for dealing super-fast damage, while being nearly indestructible thanks to the Raging Soul buff. We elected not to touch this skill tree at all and instead focus on the Swordplay Focus of Berserker, designed around slow but impactful hits. By slightly adjusting the cooldown of Aerial Smash it should seamlessly flow out of two cycles of Skull Splitter. Additionally, we're increasing the amount of power Blood Fury provides while also increasing its trigger threshold from 30% all the way up to 50%. That'll really let this focus excel in the second half of battles, rather than the last leg of the fight with dynamic Skull Splitter resets, Dark Aura resets, and powerful Bloodlust mini-nukes.

  • The physical attack bonus provided by Blood Fury has been increased.
SkillLevel 1Level 2Level 3Level 4
Previous Physical Attack Bonus 4% 6% 8% 10%
New Physical Attack Bonus 4% 6.5% 9% 11.5%
  • Aerial Smash's cooldown has been reduced to 7 seconds (down from 8 seconds).
  • Blood Fury will now activate when striking a target below 50% max HP (up from 30%).

Heavy Gunner

Heavy Gunner has been in a solid spot in terms of ranged DPS, but the Plasma Focus was lacking due to a number of inhibiting problems that made it finicky to use. Some slight adjustments should make it more enjoyable to play while also centering the spotlight on the Plasma Focus' Sky Hunter, which may require additional attention later to make it less difficult to use. As Heavy Gunner is a DPS class with no utility, we will closely monitor to see if it needs additional improvements to get it where it should be compared to other classes.

  • Plasma Chain's explosion can now score a critical hit.
  • Sky Hunter's cooldown was reduced to 30 seconds (down from 60 seconds).

Knight

When it came to the Knight, we felt like the class was already in a good place with damage in the Longsword Focus. However, halfway down the Shield Focus of the Job Rank II skills we felt like its ultimate skill, Heaven's Judgment, was far too weak. We've made some slight adjustments to damage and will come back to this skill branch later to see what else we can do to make it as appealing as the Sword Focus, but centered on support. This is just a start.

  • The skill damage of Heaven's Judgment has been increased by 10%.
SkillLevel 1Level 2Level 3Level 4
Previous Heaven's Judgment 1125% 1256% 1387% 1518%
New Heaven's Judgment 1237% 1381% 1525% 1669%

Priest

Priest characters ran into an issue where if they weren't providing much-needed healing in content where it was needed, they were often passed over in favor of a more powerful damage-dealing class or a Soul Binder. In order to make them more appealing, we've made slight adjustments to make their support a little better and more consistent, while also improving their Battle Focus so that multiple Priests can play together with far fewer drawbacks than how it is currently.

  • The damage amplification provided by Vitality has been increased.
SkillLevel 1Level 2Level 3Level 4
Previous Damage Increase 7% 7% 7% 7%
New Damage Increase 10% 10% 10% 10%
  • Divine Wave's chance to activate additional damage as well as heal has been increased to 25% (from 12%).
  • The bonus damage of Light Sword can now score a critical hit.

Runeblade

For Runeblade characters, its Rune Focus, the lesser known little brother of the Blade Focus, is often neglected. We've made some minor adjustments to its damage so that players interested in the Rune Focus can do so; however the bulk of the Rune Focus' power will come in a later update.

  • Rune Trigger's damage has been increased by 15%.
SkillLevel 1Level 2Level 3Level 4
Previous Flame Damage 220% 238% 256% 274%

Previous Thunder Damage 298% 323% 348% 373%
New Thunder Damage 342% 370% 398% 426%
  • Dimension Blade's damage has been increased by 20% and the SP cost has been reduced to 20 SP (down from 30 SP).

  • Under the Fire Sigil, Quintuple Cut is now able to score critical hits from its bonus damage.
  • Under the Lightning Sigil, Dimension Blade is now able to score critical hits from its bonus damage.

Striker

No changes were needed to Striker, whose skill focuses are good as they are currently.

  • Nothing!

Soul Binder

Vision is an all-powerful omnipotent being… but compared to the powerful Animus Focus, it's currently hard to justify playing with Vision. We've increased the damage accordingly so that it can at least be a proper contender. Soul Binder will also receive the only nerf for this update, a decrease to the potency of Soul Cube, while also gaining the option for the shield to be similarly powerful by expending one of their Awakened Mantra. This skill was far too overpowered in its current state and made other classes' survivability issues obsolete. It will still retain its title of the strongest shield, just now the Soul Binder will have to sacrifice some damage in order for the shield to be as powerful as it was before.

  • Vision Torrent's magic attack bonus has been increased.

Previous Magic Attack Bonus 4% 6% 8% 10%
New Magic Attack Bonus 8% 12% 16% 20%
  • Vision Torrent's duration has been increased to 25 seconds (up from 20 seconds).
  • Spirit Bound sees an increase in damage by 15% when enhanced hitting a single target.

  • Vision Crush's SP cost has been reduced to 25 SP (down from 40 SP).
  • Soul Cube's HP overshield has been reduced across the board. Empowering it with an Awakened Mantra Orb will increase the potency of the shield.
SkillLevel 1Level 2Level 3Level 4
Previous Soul Cube Shield 20% 40% 60% 80%
New Soul Cube Shield 8% 16% 24% 32%
New Enhanced Soul Cube Shield 16% 32% 48% 64%

Thief

Thief is already a top contender when it comes to dishing out damage. We wanted to focus more on bringing on some overall quality of life improvements to the class that'll make both building and playing it more comfortable. The Poison Focus saw a small buff to put it up to pace with its stronger Shadow Focus.

  • Battle Step has been changed into an active skill rather than a passive skill.
  • The Retaliation buff will now last 18 seconds (up from 12 seconds).
  • Players will only require Lv. 3 Mind Breaker to proceed to leveling Haste (down from Lv. 5).
  • Shadow Step's cooldown has been reduced to 6 seconds (from 7 seconds) and the engage distance has been increased to 12m (from 8m).
  • Shadow Step will now grant Rush for 8 seconds when cast.
  • Poison Master now grants additional Poison Damage.
SkillLevel 1Level 2Level 3Level 4
Previous Poison Damage 3% 6% 9% 12%
New Poison Damage 4% 8% 12% 16%

Wizard

The Storm Focus of the Wizard was lacking a great deal of firepower that the Fire Focus had, even though both skill trees had a great deal of complexity. By increasing the raw output of the Storm Focus, we hope that it could see situationally similar use to the Fire Focus with a different but still-exciting playstyle. We would still like to revisit the subject of the frustrations Fire Wizards have to deal with, so we ask that you give us additional time to resolve some of the playstyle problems.

  • Dual Cast's skill damage has been increased: 15% for Handy Lightning and 20% for Ice Shot, and the SP cost has been reduced to 13 (down from 15 SP).

New Ice Shot 84% 93% 102% 111%
  • When Ice Cream Time and Thunderbolt are on the same Macro Key, the game will always try to prioritize Ice Cream Time first.
  • Perfect Storm's damage has been increased by 15%.

Hard Adventure Dungeon Rebalance & Trader's Ribbons

  • We've been going over the current state of new players and the trials they have to go through from the moment they start their adventures in Lith Harbor all the way through their progression to the latest challenges.
    • After reading a great deal of feedback and going over the content from our side, we've decided that in order to make the ease into higher level dungeons more gradual, we will decrease the stats of the enemies you encounter.
    • The HP of all enemies (including bosses) will be reduced by 25% in the following dungeons:
      • The Song of the Oracle
      • Guardian of the Seas
      • Icethorn Ridge
      • Malevolent Manor
      • Madrakan Ramparts
      • Madrakan's Heart
    • The damage of all enemies (including bosses) will be reduced by 30% in the following dungeons:
      • The Song of the Oracle
      • Guardian of the Seas
    • We hope that by making the enemies easier to defeat that newer players challenging the content will be able to more easily push through adversaries while more experienced players can enjoy more visceral combat with the slew of enemies.
  • A total of 98 Lv. 60 Trader's Ribbons can be earned a week from A-rank rewards in Lv. 60 Chaos Raids and Eye of Lapenta Dungeons.
    • Trader's Ribbons can be used on Lv. 60 Epic or Legendary equipment that hasn't yet been equipped on a character.
      • Double-clicking on the ribbons in your inventory will open a UI which will allow you to place an item in the window to unbind it.
      • The amount of ribbons required varies depending on the equipment type. The amount of ribbons needed is listed in the item's tooltip.
      • Unbound items can be traded once or sold on the Black Market, but cannot be moved between characters on the account.
    • Trader's Ribbons are rewarded once per week for achieving A-rank in the following Chaos Raids and Eye of Lapenta Dungeons:
      • Frostpillar Temple (Hard): 14 Ribbons
      • Madrakan Spire (Hard): 14 Ribbons
