    Battle Adjustments (05/28/2008)

    Several adjustments to the battle system are scheduled for the upcoming version update.

    Merit Points Group 2: Maximum Raised for Ability Increases

    Adjustments to the Group 2 section of the merit point job categories will be implemented in the upcoming version update.
    The current total maximum ability increase of 6 and the individual maximum ability increase of 3 will be raised to match the Group 1 values of 10 and 5, respectively.

    New Job Abilities and Spells

    In conjunction with the scheduled job adjustments, the monk, paladin, and bard jobs will be receiving new abilities and spells.

    For monks, we will be adding a new job ability that allows them to restrict their attacks to kicks only. In exchange for a penalty to attack delay, the monk receives an increase to damage and attack power, as well as a bonus to the amount of TP gained per kick.

    Paladins will be receiving a new spell that increases the rate of shield blocks, as well as reflecting blocked damage back to an attacker. As with "Blaze Spikes" and "Dread Spikes," this spell will only affect the caster.

    Lastly, bards will gain a job ability that allows them to limit the area effect of a song to a single target.
    For example, if a bard casts "Mage's Ballad" after activating this new ability, only the selected target will receive the effect of the song.

    Urgh, I thought I was almost done with getting merits. but if i read that right, I can look forward to an extra 2 levels of Slow2 on my Rdm and 40 seconds longer Angons for my Drg. That is pretty win


    Also, Pld buff looks pretty hot. Pld is pulling further away from the pack as the premier tank by the looks of things. Will be nice to see how Monks fare while meleeing HNMs now

    Nice! This Paladin update will be great. Now I really need to quit slacking off on merits though, since I'm going to be jumping on the new Campaign items/missions when this update is added.

    The meriting part makes me sad inside. I have a feeling everything will now be scaled down so that the 3 cap will be the cap at 5 in the update. Not to mention we already had to do 3 4 and 5 to upgrade them and no we have to do it again for 4 and 5? :/

    Edit : Hmmmm they could easily give us more points and not uncap the abilities though Don't get too overexcited guys.


    PS : I am worried, they never said anything about DNC or SCH <_< But i'm sure they'll add them.

    If I recall correctly, when they added ToAU G2 Merits they did something similar.

    They said they were uncapping them, 3-5, with a 6-10 group raise.

    Hmmm, 5 minute Warrior's Charge? Can I get a hizzel yizzeah?

    Savagery sounds more interesting now, 40-50 TP during Warcry is an interesting proposition, shame my steel set was on a toon that got hacked recently.
