KUNOICHI

For the Class Reboot for Succession and Awakening Kunoichi, we focused on improving "utility" and "function." We added extra command keys to Ninjutsu: Block Jump, Tendon Cutter, Lunar Dash, and more which can be called the main skills in Succession and Awakening so that you can use each of the major skills in a greater variety of ways. However, some of the content for the skills revamped today might still undergo changes when adjusting the balance before it is updated in the Black Desert live server.
For Succession, we focused on making improvements by alleviating the overall difficulty level of class. A representative example of this would be improving the Ninjutsu buff to be activated for more Succession skills than before so you can use the Ghost, Soul, and Spirit Ninjutsu buffs, which are passive in Succession, without feeling the need to use certain skills. Also, we improved the utility of Prime: Tendon Cutter, Prime: Flash Slash and improved the skill motions of Shadow Clone so that you can use them in a wider variety of ways.
For Awakening, we increased the damage of skills including Half Moon Slash and Lethal Spin Spree and added buffs to Half Moon Slash to be more powerful than ever even in PvE. Also, we improved the utility of Sah Spree of Sonan and Lunar Dash. In addition to these, we improved the main combo skills used in Awakening including Flow: Chakram Rise and Moon Storm to be comboed more naturally with other skills in a wider variety of situations.
