You guys might have been caught up in all the hype about Xenon, but today, Demon Avenger was released! This patch also included a couple of changes as well as some new events, so read on~
All tooltips have been updated to match the new equipment tooltips! And not just items, anything that appears on a hover.
Demon Avenger begins with the same tutorial as Demon Slayer. They are created using the same button, now renamed Demon. Like before, the Black Mage burns down Demon’s home, and his mother and brother Damen are lost. (well not really Damien but of course he doesn’t know that!)
After you have completed the tutorial, you will be able to choose whether you wish to become a Demon Avenger, or Demon Slayer.
Demon Avenger uses a new weapon, called the Desperado, as well as the Force Shield that Demon Slayer also uses. However, Avenger does not have any Demon Force.
Demon Avenger uses the new Exceed skill system! When using special Exceed skills, the more he uses them consecutively, the faster or stronger they get. However, you will heal less HP per attack and the HP consumed will be increased as well, so you’ll have to be careful.
He also uses an HP based skill system. The damage that Demon Avenger does is dependent on his current HP, and will decrease as it decreases (until 70% HP, where any more lost HP will not decrease his damage).
Demon Avenger’s main stat is HP and his secondary stat is STR. AP Resets used on him will give back the points used in HP.
Demon Avenger’s character card gives 1%/2%/3%/5% boss damage.
