New Additions and Improvements

Class Changes
Main Weapon, Succession

Prime: Earth Tremor

    • SHIFT + F → F

Scars of Dusk, Prime: Scars of Dusk
  • Fixed the issue where DP increase effect would not activate upon using Scars of Dusk after Counter.

Musa, Maehwa
Main Weapon
  • Changed the skill as follows:
    • Changed so it cannot be comboed into basic attacks when used with your main weapon.
    • Changed the movement distance and continued activation speed when used with your main weapon.
    • Fixed the issue of the Super Armor effect not being applied during the skill's Invincibility > Super Armor defensive effects when [Musa] Chase II is used off cooldown.
▲ Using Chase once and continuously - Before (Left), After (Right)

Succession Musa is a class that specializes in quick combos dealing swift and powerful attacks. He can easily overwhelm opponents by hitting them with initial debuffs, then going in with combos. Swift in both attacking and retreating, with quick but critical strikes, he can gain the upper hand against opponents without a similarly matched skill set. However, he struggles against those with similar play styles. In order to balance this, we've moved the defensive effects of Prime: Crust Crusher to Prime: Blooming, so that Blooming can be used to guard him from attacks when needed, or turn the tide of battle with the skill's offensive attributes.

Today's patch added Maegu's Lv. 56-58 enhanced (Rabam) skills and two Prime skills.

First off, we designed her Lv. 56 Rabam skills to be comboable with other skills. Her Lv. 57 Rabam skills, with Frontal Guard and Super Armor respectively, were designed to add some utility to bolster her stability when necessary. Last but not least, her Lv. 58 Rabam skills include Spirit Sparks, which helps her melee defenses with Frontal Guard and HP Recovery, and Soul Charm, which can be useful when used as Maegu re-enters the fray thanks to the HP Recovery effect.

Her Prime skills include Prime: Fan of Flames, a ranged attack that reduces your enemy's Movement Speed and can keep them at bay, and Prime: Nukduri Dance, which deals melee area damage with an AP Increase buff that can be used in all directions.

With the additions of Rabam and Prime skills, we've reduced the damage of Foxspirit: Tag and Lurking Claws for PvP. Since Maegu is gaining new melee skills to her arsenal, we decided to implement such adjustments to balance her strengths in both ranged and melee combat.

Last but not least, we have removed the illusory double that "charges forward" for Foxflare, Petal Play, and Flower Shroud. Thanks to her doubles that can spawn front, back, and even to the sides, Maegu has been regarded to be in the top tier for PvP, so we decided to add some limitations to the number of skills that spawn these doubles.

We are continuing to test and observe Maegu's gameplay for PvP internally, along with analyzing various data we've accumulated from the game. We will look to see if today's changes were either too extreme or too lax, and we plan to make further changes if deemed necessary.

  • Added Rabam skills.
    • You can learn the first Rabam skill at Lv. 56, the 2nd at Lv. 57, and the 3rd at Lv. 58.
    • You must learn the preceding skills to learn a Rabam skill.
    • You can only learn one Rabam skill for each of the aforementioned levels.
