Job Skill Improvements

Developer Notes:

In this January 24 test world update, we are making overall numerical adjustments and correcting errors that were sent in my players since the last update.

First, for the numerical adjustments, we made adjustments up to 20% of jobs’ existing combat performance, including the remastered Adventurers. The numbers were changed by comprehensively reviewing each job’s combat performance, role in party play, control difficulty, and combt related statistics from the official server.

After the last update, many players shared their disappointment with the skill improvements. We apologize for presenting content that didn’t meet players’ expectations, both in quantity and quality.

In the future, we will do our best to minimize players’ inconvenience by continuously improving skills and gradually improving combat performance to reach levels that will satisfy users.

  • Spirit Throwing Spirit Throwing: Fixed an issue where the skill name was changed to Spirit Stars.

Striker

  • The logic where the next used skill was linked when the skill key was released has been changed so that it is linked when the skill key is pressed. The list of skills that are affected are the following.
    • Lightning Punch
    • Flash
    • Shark Sweep
    • Tidal Crash
    • Ascension
    • Thunder
    • Gale
    • Annihilate
    • Thunderbolt
    • Typhoon
    • Descent of the Sea God
    • Shark Torpedo
    • Lightning Spear Multistrike

Developer Notes:

Striker has a special link logic that is different than other jobs’ linking. Most linking logic links skills by cancelling the previous skill’s action when you press the skill key down of the next skill to link. However, Strikers’ skills would be linked when the next skill key was released, with the exception of Tidal Crash which had a stop on re-use feature which was added in the September 17, 2020 update, and it could be inputted with both the key down and key release.

This link logic wasn’t a big problem before, but on the January 18 update, the feature to cancel previously inputted skills using Tidal Crash was added, and this led to the error of Tidal Crash being used twice becoming more frequent.

The following is a step-by-step explanation of the problem where Tidal Crash would be used twice in a situation where Annihilate, Thunderbolt, and Tidal Crash were pressed in order.

  1. Cast Annihilate by pressing the key down.
  2. Thunderbolt was key downed, but the skill key was not released so it was not linked.
  3. Tidal Crash was key downed, cancelling Annihilate and activating Tidal Crash.
  4. Release Thunderbolt’s key which was key downed in 2, activating linked Thunderbolt.
  5. Release Tidal Crash’s key which was key downed in 3, cancelling Thunderbolt and activating Tidal Crash.

The improvements we made to Tidal Crash in the January 18 update were meant to make the experience of using skills better, so we want to maintain them. In addition, generally, the logic where skills are linked when the skill keys are pressed provides a smoother skill usage experience and it would improve the issue where Tidal Crash is activated twice, so we have changed Striker so that skills are linked when the skill keys are pressed.

  • Thunderbolt Thunderbolt: The action delay has been decreased by about 4%. This skill will now be linked faster than before.
  • Lightning Union Lightning Union: The final damage boost has been increased from 19% to 24% (at level 25).

Developer Notes:

In the last January 18 test world, we significantly increased Chain Lightning’s forward chain range and chain range after hitting a monster, but we still received many comments about the inconvenience when using it. Therefore, in this update, we want to improve Chain Lightning’s usability by changing two parts of its logic.

First, the range when searching for monsters to chain to from the initial cast location has been greatly increased. With this change, we have alleviated the frustrating issue where the skill would not chainn even though there was a nearby monster that it could chain to.

Second, the reference point for searching for the next chained monster has been changed from the bottom of the monster to the centre of the monster. In the past, when we set the chan rainge to be based on the bottom of the monster, there was a problem where it chained relatively well downwards but not upwards. With this change, Chain Lightning has been improved so that it chains equally well both upwards and downwards.

In addition, since we changed the search logic, we have also significantly increase the vertical chain range so that players were used to the existing downward chain range do not feel any discomfort.

  • Elquines Elquines: Fixed an issue where there was an awkward effect when teleporting to the character’s location.
  • Ice Aura Ice Aura: Fixed an issue where if you hovered over the quickslot icon while the vortex was not on cooldown, a description other than Ice Aura would be displayed. The skill description has been changed to be more accurate.
  • thunder-break Thunder Break: The final damage reduction when multiple lightning strikes hit has been decreased from 20% to 15%.

Bishop

  • The skill descriptions have been updated to include more detail about each attack’s element.
  • Triumph Feather Triumph Feather: Fixed an issue where this skill could not be registered in the Pet Auto Buff.
  • Bahamut Bahamut: Fixed an issue where there was an awkward effect when teleporting to the character’s location.
  • Vengeance of Angels Vengeance of Angels: Fixed an issue where there was a delay if you used another skill immediately after casting Vengeance of Angels.

Developer Notes:

After the January 18 test world update, we received a lot of comments that there was an error where skills were linked smoothly in a way that was different from the official server.

This issue occurred because in that update, we restored Vengeance of Angel’s existing logic from before the remaster which ignored the delay for skills that were used after Angel Ray and Teleport. We restored this logic on the 18th because we did not intend to eliminate the smooth link experience between the existing Angel Ray and Teleport, and after the remaster, Vengeance of Angel’s skill restrictions were removed and players felt that using more skills was smoother than before.

This is an improvement to making Bishop’s skill usage experience better, so we will keep it without any additional changes. However, we found that there was a delay in the next skill used immediately after Vengeance of Angels, and so we have improved this problem as well.

Improvements

Items

The Petite Death set images have been partially changed.

Developer Notes:

We checked various opinions after the test server and have supplemented the Petite Death set pets’ standing and moving motions and changed the Bella pet’s skirt and eyebrows to improve and soften their overall atmosphere.

For the Bella and Thoth’s equipment, the size and shape have been changed while taking into consideration the harmony of the pet’s size and distance from the pet nametag without departing from the Master Label’s motif.

UI

The quickslot and buffs’ shadow effect’s transparency has been changed to be slightly darker to make it easier to see the time passing.

Error Fixes

Items

Fixed an issue where the Guardian Angel Ring Set Conversion Scroll could not be placed in Scroll Bags.

Fixed an issue where the Ocean Bakery pets’ buff skill descriptions had awkward wording.

Fixed an issue with the Perfect Tactical Relay Ver. 3 Chair where capes were not visible.

Fixed an issue where the Arcane/Authentic Symbol stats for non-Demon Avenger and Xenon characters changed. (Since the stats were restored based on the enhancements at the time of the January 18 test world update, the level and stats may not match if you enhanced them after the Janaury 18 maintenance.)

Skills

Fixed an issue where % stat boost effects like from potential did not apply to Xenon’s Star Force Conversion skill’s stats.

UI

Fixed an issue in the boss entry UI where Hard Demian’s entry limit was displayed as 1 time per day.

Fixed an issue in the Shortcut Settings UI where if you reset the 3rd preset to the basic key settings then entered the Cash Shop or Maple Auction, the 3rd preset would be reset to the optional key settings.

    For an “Explorer Remaster” it’s kind of weird how all the non-Explorers are receiving the bigger buffs.

    is there a clearer example of this ” You can no longer use Royal Guard again during Royal Guard’s action.”

    • Max
      January 24, 2022 at 5:35 pm

      I think it means if you cd reset Royal Guard, you can’t use it right after using it the first time, like you have to wait a little bit before you can use it again

      • GMSMihile
        January 24, 2022 at 8:14 pm

        that’s interesting…i didn’t know Royal Guard cd could be reset. It isn’t affected by CD reduction nor is it affected by Rune of Skill. Thank you for the response! Appreciate the hard work.

        I assume it’s referring to the fact that you can spam Royal Guard during the cast animation. That’s how it is on GMS at least and it never made sense for me. Guess this confirms it’s also the case on KMS. P.sure you can’t reset RG’s cooldown.

    “Adrenaline Boost Activate: The duration has been increased from 30 seconds to 300 seconds.”

    is there something wrong with the translation? seems to me that they meant increasing the cooldown instead of the adrenaline duration

    • Max
      January 25, 2022 at 12:22 am

      No it means you have 300s to choose to activate Adrenaline Mode instead of only 30s (but most people will not wait that long lol it’s just to give you more freedom)

    Why striker no given any skill damage increase or passive skill add final damage?

    • Anonymous
      January 25, 2022 at 4:24 pm

      strikers attacks now link together much faster so while theres no flat numbers increase you are getting a damage increase by being able to attack faster, similar to getting a +1 or even +2 attack speed increase depending on the exact changes, i believe the numbers are posted in the previous skill balance changes post
