The additional attack’s final damage is increased by 15% for every second the enemy was taking damage over time (up to 5).

          February 23, 2017 at 12:16 pm

          Ok so I tapped Hurricane 4 times (with like 2 seconds in between taps for the Arrow Rain CD) while Arrow Rain was active and AFA only procced 4 times so I’m pretty sure Arrow Rain does not activate it.

          Arrow Rain does not proc the passive effect of Afterimage Shot either.

            Thank you. Oh well I was excited when I read 5th skills would activate FA. And since arrow rain procs magic arrow, I was hoping it would proc AFA as well. Hopefully it is a bug.

    1 skill I would like to ask is that the assassinate for shadower has a debuff that can stack 3 times , what the difference between 1 debuff and 3 stacked debuff?

    • Max
      February 22, 2017 at 1:24 am

      Oh my bad, you can actually only use it with Assassinate if there is an enemy with 3 stacks on it!

            thats depend how the assassinate is “linked” to the skill, if its fast and able connect well, it can be a good skill

            3800% damage 7 times with an additional 100% critical rate and defense ignore is quite a high damage

        • Max
          February 22, 2017 at 11:46 am

          Yeah 1/2 stacks doesn’t do anything

    Max what do you mean in marksman change to snipe ”Arrow speed has been increased”, it will go to the monster faster? does this mean it’s a lower delay?

    • Max
      February 22, 2017 at 2:19 am

      I believe it means the arrow will move faster towards monsters, otherwise they would say the cast delay has been decreased or something.

      Just wanna ask the owner of this comment. I guess piercing is nerfed now? 😦 Overall damage it reduced due to lower multiplier….

        Did some shoddy math, on the first 5 it’s an increase of 16.5% damage overall: https://puu.sh/ueNSq.png but on the 7th and onwards we definitely lose out. The range is lowered from min – max but it’s definitely a buff

            So in other words, our damage to monsters become more consistent, but losing out from the 7th monsters onwards (Level 20 Pierce enhancement). But if the arrow move quicker…..that should be able to compensate the nerf. Thanks buddy for the calculations!

        The guy pretty much sayed already, in the end you gain a lot more since it’s harder to ko mobs in the front, and the mobs in the end you already do a ton of damage, i think it’s great this for any marksman.

        • LWZ
          February 22, 2017 at 11:05 am

          A correction to make. Since the cast delay is still the same, it is still a nerf for us if we actually hit the 7th mob (or more). Still like what you have said, it is easier for us to 1HKO mobs now. I guess this is more towards balancing though. Split arrow range really hurt my eyes though…..Long Range True Shot is not good enough for multi-platform kill. ><

          • Ivangold
            February 22, 2017 at 12:02 pm

            Long range true is actually really good for multi-platform, you can, in certain maps, take more than one platform at once, it’s nice to have less dalay.
            Also with these changes, since your snipe/pirecing arrow hit the mobs faster, you can train faster with piercing since it will kill mobs faster.
            In bossing the snipe can problably land more hits in the same time, since you can lose a snipe because it was too late, now you can problably hit one more snipe before you need dodge/wait another chance to attack.
            The Split arrow seens really OP, look how far the plataforms are from each other, and she can get both at the same time, almost no job can do that besides Luminous who always was a good mober.

            February 22, 2017 at 1:45 pm

            Long Range True Shot: Yes; it does work well in some maps. It is basically like a weaker version of multi target Snipe. Some maps require better timing for this skill though.
            Snipe and Piercing: I have checked the video below (I think you did too), sniping’s difference is more obvious in the long run, while piercing not so much.
            Split Arrow: Nuuuuuuu T.T Maybe they want us to use Long Range True Shot more. And probably like what I have said above, they want us to have precise timing to get the best ends for Split Arrow (Similar to Long Range True Shot, but worse due to shorter vertical range for Split Arrow.) ><

    God of Control was trash anyway. Novel idea, terrible, terrible implementation. It felt like a couple interns made it with all of the issues, same exact background, awful music, awkward controls, and shitty level design worse than any JQ in the game.

    Hi Max. For the ArchMage’s Infinity, does the korean patch note mention about 200% limit or only 20 stacks? Coz i saw a web site translate it only mention 20 stacks. Yes I know 10% each stack. but with Decent Combat Order. each stack become 11%, then it will be different.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Max
      February 22, 2017 at 11:51 am

      The skill description specifically says it goes up to 200%

    So, are we keeping the 350/750 blue/purple/red combo orbs, or are they adding new, higher-level orbs?

    • Max
      February 22, 2017 at 11:58 am

      Someone went up to ~3500 Combo on Insoya and they said that the experience stays the same from 999 Combo to 2000 Combo, then the experience goes up by 1.1x. And then after that it stays the same. So potentially one new Combo Orb colour? Idk why they would make it max out at 9999 but stop the scaling at 2000 though.

    Ok so why did we have to reduce Soul Master’s Hyper by 850% and make True Sight as a buff almost useless?

  15. Anonymous I/L mage
    February 22, 2017 at 4:20 pm

    Ok, so looking at what has been going on, I/L mages have been nerfed. I’m not surpised, as they kept giving us stuff, they had to balance it out at some point. Then they nerfed Nightlords a bit, increasing Bleeding Toxin cooldown- I suspect because of Phantoms abusing that, though personally I like the Gambler’s strat(Fire Aura, Meso explosion, Pickpocket, Rage, and Venom burst. Its called that because money and cards and stuff flies like a table was flipped for 30 secs. Its not the best, but its hilarious to watch)
    Some interesting touch ups with Marksman, Battle Mage gets some nice buffs, Night Walker finally stops getting nerfed, and we lose the Rune of Hordes for the Runes of Mesos, which I am assuming is what one of the GM’s from GMS was talking about when during an event they mentioned the possibility of the removal of that rune. Yes, I was listening in on that conversation, and I know who you are, and I know you will read this message. Because you always do. (:D)
    Also, thank goodness they got rid of “god of control.” It should’ve been called “Lets jump with NES classic Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde” as Maplestory’s movement controls are too similar to that old game. If you don’t believe me heres a link to an online version of the game: http://game-oldies.com/play-online/dr-jekyll-and-mr-hyde-nintendo-nes# I dare someone to actually measure out the 100% speed of a maplestory character and compare it.

      NL’s Bleeding Toxin was nerfed didn’t affect Phantom, since Phantom has his own seperate cooldown when stealing Hypers.
      I believe it was due to NL having high mobbing capabilities with Bleeding Toxin, as Mark of Night Lord CAN spread the DoT, and it flies around the whole map, so basically NL can inflict the whole map with a painful poison.

      Remember their Illusion skill first got buffed and it was like one of the best skill, and all the other classes’ skills also became faster. Then flamewheel and blaze became faster, so do others’. And just as we thought this revamp was going to set Evan’s spot up there for a while. Nope, losing 30% final damage, and you think that was bad enough ? 2 best skills for bossing turned into worst ones, and we have to use a new rotation which won’t even be good enough for dps if you don’t have the hat to decrease cooldown time. And all those passive and active skills just put Evans around the same spot as they were before all this revamp – with a more complexity to maximize decent dps. That’s just plain stupid. Thank you Nexon ❤

    Thks for the Update.. I like the way it depicts the changes made on each of the character. ^^ However I would suggest the use of colours to differentiate the buff or nerf. it will make it even easier for readers to spot the changes conveniently. doubles Thumbs Up to Max.

    Hi Max, would you say with the current changes to shadower’s skill, it’s a better version or worse than the previous mechanics? Even with this new test vid, I still dunno what to think of it…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFEzR3fVdP8

    • Boomerang
      February 25, 2017 at 10:48 am

      i think its better dpm wise, you lose the counter attack wich was an OP defensive thing, but shadowers need more dpm pretty badly, so for this one i think its a little bit better, besides no other class can dodge/counter an 1 hit KO skill, keeps its kind of fair

    • Max
      February 25, 2017 at 1:01 pm

      IDK about it damage-wise but I think concept-wise it matches Shadower better? The counterattack mechanic was a bit weird and seemed a lot like Mikhail’s Royal Guard but now it’s more of a counter mechanic like Shadower Instinct’s Killing Points/Assassinate’s 3 hits/etc.

      • Anonymous
        February 25, 2017 at 10:47 pm

        For the wounded debuff that Assasinate casted, will it affect the poison stacks? Or both will be casted at the same time? Will the wounded debuff cause DOT damage also? I can see that venom burst is back to its OP state, would be nice if the poison stacks are not affected by wounded debuff.

        • Max
          February 25, 2017 at 11:42 pm

          Sorry I don’t really understand your question? The wounded debuff is completely separate and doesn’t have any poison effect.
