Hello, everyone and Pearl Abyss Team!

I've been playing Archer as my main class since I started playing BDO 3 years ago on SA servers, I used to play on NA servers as well. I've invested so much in this class, not only time but pearls as well. Just to find out that after the new patch the class is just not playable anymore. And I've tested it as much as I could, to make sure of it!. Please! Pearl Abyss, change it back, because it was not a BUFF, it was a BAD REWORK, Please, listen to players that actually play the class, not only on PvP but also on PvE as well.

Does not make any sense on changing [Spear of Sylvia ], It was one of the few useful closed-combat skills that Archer has, and changing it to a basic shooting arrow skill like every single other doesn't make sense, it just make the class unplayable and less attractive.

-

-

Also [Marked Bloom] was one of the only useful skills for PvE because of the AoE that was not being affected by terrain like the [SHIFT + E] is, also it had the option of casting it on recharging, even having no damage for PvP, it was the main good skills for Archers on AoE grinding, because you could at least use it with no cooldown, and now it's useless for PvE  as well because it's not possible to use it as before. It was also a bad decision on making it a solo skill, it just reduce the option to add better status in other important and useful skills. just filling some slot that could be better used on any other skill, especially when considering the poor defense that Archer has in many aspects.

Also one of the most importants things currently, is that Archer skills are now consuming so much stamina, it's just impossible to complete a full rotation smoothly as before. Especially if you are playing Awakening and not Succ most of the time.

Archer has been a solid class in terms of rotating and mobility for years. It just needed some minor adjusts on the status to be useful as well on PvP in order to stay a little bit longer on PvP without being destroyed. The same goes to some end-game grinding spots. It Just minor adjusts on status, NOT a rework in the small number of useful skills that the class has.

 I really hope Pearl Abyss read this and make the changes that the players really want. Not only for Archer but for any other Class that are not receiving the love that they deserves. Which is sad because the combat in this game is too good and also being reference in the MMO world for a very long time.

-

-

For now I'm quitting BDO, after 3 years. Because I've invested so much on my Archer, even having a lot of other classes on lv60+, Archer since its release, was the only class I really enjoyed playing as my main class for years and it's just not playable anymore. such a waste of time and Pearls.

gg everyone!

It's not like they think through or test their changes. They completely killed off succ Nova for good after previous nerfs. It's not even possible at this point to fix that class after they rushed out these new pve i-frame changes.

Upvote for content, not that you're leaving.  Sad result of careless unrequested updates.

indeed, They could just ask players instead I bet a lot of us would be more than happy on explain precisely detailed about it, no one knows better than the classes than the ones that are daily playing/testing and making the better use of it.

it's just sad.

indeed my friend, this game has so much potential for being the top 1 in many aspects.

I've only been playing this game for five months and archer was one of my favorite classes. It wasn't the best in pve but it was fun to play. It just needed some minor tweaks to make it better. I don't understand the rework, this is the worst possible outcome. 

      The lesson I learned today is quite simple. Don't spend pearls on outfits and such because you are probably decking out a future mule.

       I love this game but I'm wondering if this is the future for every class. Maybe I'm wasting my time and money.

The changes on Marked Bloom and Spear of silvya are really nasty and confuse us a lot in pve. AoE back please !

Gaping Darkness is also screwed up.  What was once a very easy, useful skill (RMB) is now impossibly hard, (w+e) and useless in most circumstances.

it could be worse, you could be awkened caster with 1 reliable movement forward every 7 secs. try farming one tap areas with that kit.

Spear of Sylvia was bad but was good. This was my defensive skill when I was surrounded by mobs. Now Spear of Sylvia is useless to me, removed good heals and where is FG (Spear of Sylvia had SA, now it should have FG according to patch notes)?

As already said: without ability to use Marked Bloom during cd Marked Bloom is useless, small increase in endgame doesn't compensate for the loss of 50-80% grind speed on 1 hit mob zones.

And DoubleTap. This skill without protection is useless, the fact that we can use it more comfortably now doesn't change anything.
