Minor balance update

Postby Harboe » 04 Oct 2017 07:44

Hello guys,


Today Not Aion has received an update which does the following two things:

  • Fear Shriek/Demonic Scream (only in BG): cooldown decreased from 3 min to 2 min (doesn't apply to 6v6).
  • Earth Transformation (Compassion of the Earth): disabled so that putting points into this High Daeva skill will no longer grant you the skill.

Yikes, right? Some background:

The SM nerf was spot on by hitting Fear Shriek which was the primary identity of many SM players in BG's. By hitting it so hard, however, it meant that these players were no longer capable of competing at all, and only the excellent SM players could remain competitive. By going back on the nerf slightly, a hand is extended to the players who are useless without Fear Shriek, but the 2 min cooldown will still require better timing and awareness than the original cooldown.

Earth Transformation has been disabled as a temporary experiment to see whether or not it will improve the quality of Open World PvP (and FFA). If it appears that quality does not improve, or you, the players, are overly dissatisfied with the change, it will simply be reverted. But obviously, if it's for the better, it will stay.


Regards,
Harboe

Balance updates just keep getting better & better between Cleric buff, SM nerf and the removal of earth transformation. aaaaaaaah
Thank you! Too many players are reliant on earth transform, and as player who isn't, it's discouraging to see myself being ''outplayed'' by such a loser-esque skill.

If there was anything good about compassion of earth, it was the ability to allow your solo play more survivability thus more enjoyable and stretched.
