Future Balance Adjustments

After examining the game's current balance, the development team noted the following problems:

  • The combination of Meteor Cudgel's potential with the Double Saber Gear:
    • Lets it generate a high amount of whirlwinds.
    • Makes it easy to dish out high amounts of damage.
  • Performing too many of these whirlwinds also causes a bug where they display incorrectly.
  • In addition, Elysion's potential, "Innocent Appearance" appears to be really powerful.

Since this can affect the balancing of future updates, they have decided to nerf them in the following ways:

  • They will place a cap on the number of whirlwinds simultaneously occurring through the Double Saber Gear.
  • They are also going to nerf the values for "Innocent Appearance."

As a followup on the changes made towards customized technics, they plan to nerf them in the following ways.

  • They will reduce Ice Fang Na Barta's power.
  • They will reduce Umbral Na Megid's power.

In addition to distributing the All Skill Tree Reset Pass (mentioned in the Sep. 2nd article), they plan to release some form of compensation to all users in the future. More details will be announced in a future posting.
