Suggestions/Comments: Succession Nova needs a reboot like every other class.

Hey,

Since the reboot, older classes (well, most of them), have been able to show a much better performance. 

However, some of the newer classes, which were for some reason left out of the reboot, are now lagging behind compared to the rebooted ones. Nova is one of them.

Succession Nova is at the moment among the weakest classes, if not *the* weakest, in PvE -- from low to high-end.  She does have a niche in PvP in which she is useful, but that niche is exremely limited -- almost as limited as a DP Shai. 

Since the character reboot, every single character has undergone significant changes. Except for Succession Nova, that is. As a result, she is very outdated. Most of her features are useless. Her 'unique' HP regeneration passive is as good as gone; compared to Woosa's similar passive, it is an absolute waste of a skill -- and that's not mentioning that Nova literally damages herself with every skill. She is one of the most unsustainable characters in PvE because of that, and because of a surprising lack of FG skills despite being a shield class. Every one of her non-command skills is simply useless; they barely even quialify as filler skills. Her shift+e is simply an atrocious skill; and it used to be one of her most iconic features. 

Should I mention her mobility? She is the slowest class in the game *by far*. Her stamina is gone after a few dashes, and she can't move afterwards; her w+c and s+c don't function as proper movement (and barely have any use at all). Her only iframe is pathetic and has a gigantic cooldown; her BS rage skills are the worst in the game. 


Awakening Nova, on the first glance, does not struggle as much as Succession, but at the moment she is far from optimal. She used to be at the top of the pack on Orcs due to being able to abuse weapons, but nowadays pretty much every reworked class is capable of that -- but without a weapon, she is quite honestly average. 
And that is on Accel. That is her main problem -- while on accel she is comptetitive and can perform on the same level as other classes, without it she feels very inadequate and slow. Her skill pool is very small, first of all, compared to rebooted classes. She also has very long cooldowns, which leads to enormous skill drought -- she constantly runs out of skills, even if she uses all available fillers, and either has to use rabams, awkwardly move around, or use her repeatable skills. Beyond 3 main damage skills, her fillers are very, very weak: they have small aoe, small damage, and no utility. At the moment, her awakening suffers from the same problems awakening DK suffered from before reboot. 

[Edit: since the suggestion was submitted, Awakening Nova has received a range of very good and substantial updates and reworks to her key mechanics, changing and improving almost every aspect of her gameplay.]

In short, please, just improve Succession Nova.

P.S. Axian should act as Maegu's fox in idle stances. It's a key aspect of the character's identity, and both functionally and lore-wise acts exactly like Maegu's fox. Let it appear by the class, too.

Day 2 of asking PA to reboot Nova and other newer classes. 

And fix tamer, probably.

Drak just came out and that pile of garbage already needs one.

They simply nerfed Sage to oblivion, and have no idea what to do with Corsair and Hash.

All these classes have some sort of stupid gimmick or overly long flashy moves.  Devs don't know why there are ninjas or zerkers all over the place.

We'll have to see Drak's awakening to be sure, but her succession does seem to be all over the place, bordering on OP in some instances, and being hot garbage in others. But she's being tweaked constantly; she's just an unfinished class, is all. 

Sage, Hash, and Nova are really down there after the reboots. At least they tried to do smth with Hash, but seemingly failed.

Sage is jsut nerfed to the ground. People are still afraid of them cuz of his release PTSD, but that doesn't make him viable at all. Awakening may hold some ground at 1v1 and a little bit at Elvia, but Succ is just... yeah.

Nova Awak has a reputation for being a strong grinder among non-Nova players, but in reality, she is consistently below top-15 at almost all end-game areas except for Elvia; losing even to Tamer. Tamer, who's currently in the trashcan. And some classes post-reboot do Elvia much better than she does, anyways. Her cooldowns are just too long and skill pool is literally the smallest among all awakenings; her few large-aoe skills that made her top grinder pre-reworks lose even to DK nowadays, and skills like s+lmb, s+f, w+f, f, s+q have probably the  smallest aoes in the game, along with among teh lowest damage in the game. Self-buffs like attack speed and ap are so short you barely manage to squeeze two skills after them. She has zero iframes outside of Accel, and the one in Accel is puny; there's no escaping from mob's nukes. She barely handles Gyffin. 

Succ Nova is jsut a masochistic grinder. No movement, skills wind up for like 30 minutes each, she can kill herself without any assistance from hte mobs, etc etc etc. Q DP buff lingers for just 5 seconds, which also translates to awa nova. You get it. 

New classes were left in the dirt after reboots along with a few failed reboots like Tamer and Archer (after his short shining moment). It's sad.

nova (especially succ) needs to be booted out of the game for good

Recent improvements (Global Labs and KR this week) to Nova seem to be good, but very surface-level. They do not solve key issues neither for succession nor for awakening. 

Awakening still suffers from skill drought, lack of damage and utility on most of them and overreliance on a few strong ones, very lackluster performance outside Accel and overreliance on it -- which means everywhere, especially in PvP, novas are stuck sucking vacuums for two minutes before they can join in for 30 seconds of Accel. It needs a rebalance between Accel and non-accel, so that latter (and general performance) is improved, but Accel is not made as OP as it used to be; possibly not as strong, yet longer or sustainable through use of breath-generating skills. 

And yes, she still needs a visual rework. 

Succession Nova just needs improvements in every department. Faster movement, less HP drain, more damage, shorter cooldowns. 

Also come on, stop torturing Tamer and buff them properly. 

Also do something about succession Sage, please.

Yeah pretty much how I feel. I play Nova Succ because big shield. I like big shields. Its a hot smelly dumpster fire of garbage compared to other classes thou. If our damage going to be trashy smelly garbage, at least give us alot more tankiness and support abilities. (Agro-Draw, More CC, More Shielding/Tanky Tank, Life-Link to save other players.)

If they just reverted all the nerfs they did to Nova she would be ok

Yeah, at least that. If they don't want her to deal damage, at least make her tankier.
