    About time. Don’t get why they picked that order for the characters though…

  • An Actual Chung Main says:

    You get an Andromeda!… YOU get an Andromeda!…AND YOU GET AN ANDROMEDA!!!

  • LazyLaze says:

    so regarding hybrid classes like CEs and hershey. Would kog decide if they’re physical or magical now? Or would it be based on dominant stat? CEs has real balance on matk/patk atm.

    • Gameboy224 says:

      I mean Herr is most definitely still predominantly a magical class with the vast majority of his stuff leaning that way. CEs is more mixed but given ST2 declared her physical, they’d probably go with that, especially considering both of Eve’s other 2 paths are completely magical so she kind of needs a physical path.

      • LazyLaze says:

        what/who is ST2?

        • Gameboy224 says:

          Skill Tree 2.
          One feature of it was every character had a dedicated passive for Physical or Magical Defense/Strength, Code Empress always fell into the physical group.

      • Mayoi says:

        but due to his very low physical attack stats
        those good physical skills like schmerz, gottver sense seems to waste with him (their dmg is even weaker than bohren vereisen)

      • JustcallmeNub says:

        Hold on they cant make CE Physical all of a sudden, most of her attacks magical, and they should know most of the playbase who Plays CE goes magical on Elrianode armor because of MeB and Tesla flare

        • Gameboy224 says:

          Welp, RIP Elrianode sets on CEs. Unless they choose to keep her as the hybrid exception of the game, they’re probably gonna shift her stuff to favor physical stats.

  • Just stop its fine says:

    Uh revamp after the whole scandal ya no just stop what your doing Kr it’s over

  • Coki91 says:

    Time has comed, time for Evacuation! to get Deleted
    MARK MY WORDS

  • I'm scared says:

    I got a feeling this revamps… Kog hinted that they where going to be working on it after laby’s release. but… with this timing… I’m scared they pushed it forward to appease people, and well, this is going to irritate people. And if it flops I can smell the chaos to come.

    • Anon says:

      The timing in relation to the scandal going around is likely a coincidence. They would have had to have been working on this for much longer than the scandal has been public and the timing lines up with what you would expect for a summer update.

    • Kerialstraz says:

      Considering the 2 months downtime of the season and the global tournament means that they already decided to release the character revamps during this timeframe.

  • Dan Yami says:

    They better keep Rune Master a magic class tho I didn’t bump up my magic damage for nothin

    • Flare Kyn says:

      Of course he’s gonna stay a magic class, that’s what the class itself is based on. Hell, the first job in the path is literally named MAGIC Knight.

  • BOB111 says:

    When its coming to NA?

  • M says:

    LETS GO IMMORTAL, A TOAST FOR OUR NEW INFINITY
    IMMORTAL MAINS RISE UP
    #Day1SheathKnight

  • Frost says:

    Finally… I imagine KoGs was working so hard on that revamp for half year, right? It’s better be something balanced and worth player’s waitings. Also – why do we still have different attack types (physical/magical)? Feels like it completely lost it’s purpose.

    • En. says:

      Because even if people say they want “balance” they actually don’ want a “completely balanced” game. A completely balanced game would be one were all the fighters have the same moveset, same damage, same hp, same everything, but just a different outfit.

      Having different stuff between each playable character, is what gives diversity and makes the game actually fun, (the problem lies in making those “special traits” of every character to still be counterable, having weakpoints and stuff) P/M Atk and Def are still a relevant point when PvPing even if they all share the same “base” stat, as I would like to remind you that you can modify said stats with your gear’s random effect and some other sources.

      • n3iger says:

        I meeeaaann…. they could still remove damage types AND keep playstyles diverse. Having magical/physical attacks would be redundant after the revamps because the diversity in damage is removed, especially for characters like Code empress who are Hybrid attack style

  • Poring says:

    so basically

    Damage Control of recent backlash,

    but we’re know this damage control will do additional damage to game balance

  • Buff Bluhen on Revamps pls @kogsnek says:

    BUFF BLUHEN :hedgejedi:

  • ICombo@Endgame says:

    Yo, lemme get a revamp on VP’s combos, pls KOG. It’s so unnsttabbllleeeee

  • Yoyo says:

    6) All characters that are rebooted will receive a skill that allows them to evade while being hit

    Finally! Now just give everyone a freaking block skill and then pvp will be less annoying

  • Shinaitsa says:

    1) Base character stats will be set to same across characters
    why?

    2) Base character HP will be set to same across characters
    why?

    3) Emphasis will be placed on increasing the stat that most represents the class’s attack

    E.g) Physical class will have less emphasis on magic attack and more emphasis on physical attack
    fair enough

    4) All classes will do skill damage that best represents the class

    E.g) All skills that physical class uses does physical damage
    fair enough

    5) Character’s commands and some effects of those commands are revamped
    remains to be seen

    6) All characters that are rebooted will receive a skill that allows them to evade while being hit.
    good

    7) All classes will have minimum 400 base MP through passives.
    good

    8) Some characters will receive new skills or their existing skills will either have their grades changed or have a change in usage.
    remains to be seen

    So, guess I’ll be cautiously optimistic?

    • Sariel says:

      I already commented this before, but guess what happened generally to the game whenever these sorts of “positive changes” were inflicted? They got nerfed again soon after. It’s the same bs they try on us EVERY.SINGLE.TIME

  • Majestrix says:

    I was suggest for 2 years, they listenend in low player time? Hilarious.

  • Katja Eclair says:

    “8) Some characters will receive new skills or their existing skills will either have their grades changed or have a change in usage. ”

    Ugh…I want to be cautiously optimistic, but knowing the times they’ve nerfed some clearing skills into the ground before… I just really hope they don’t kill a skill in PvE for the sake of PvP balance.

  • Ainverstanden says:

    I wonder if they gonna listen to the players this time

  • Sariel says:

    So funny to see this now after we demanded this sort of change for an eternity. Also I am really interested in those so-called “boots”. I mean Aisha’s been dead for how long?
    It’s more than possible to balance this game properly, even though we have too many classes in general and ONLY NOW it happens. I feel like they never planned on doing this “re-vamp” or “re-boot” at all! I call BS!

    Listen everybody, they will do this now and then? IN THE END THEY WILL NERF EVERY CHARACTER AGAIN ONCE ENOUGH PLAYERS RETURN TO THE GAME! They haven’t changed and they will NEVER change in that regard. NEVER!

    • Moe says:

      Okay, and that’s what they did with the 1st revamp. Besides they’ll ‘nerf’ to fix overall powered revamp skills which someone like you will probable be complaining about. Yall give them to much shit and this point how do they know what their doing is right or not if people like you just get mad at everything.

      • Sariel says:

        The thing is that my comment was driven by things that have been said (also more or less confirmed) by the Korean community regarding the whole issue at hand that inflicted this sort of “emergency” patch. KoG is blinded by what’s lucrative and what’s not, which was confirmed by TIFFANY (a former Elsword Youtuber that shared his experiences with KoG in his last Elsword live stream). You may argue that every company, enterprise and even individual is just like that, but if you milk the sh”’ out of your fanbase and often times ignore wishes and requests of any sort, but instead you create balance patches that are heavily influenced according to what a few PvP player said at a secret meeting that wasn’t transparent at all… Sorry, but I think I am not wrong with being upset.
        Also, I need to change my former statement. The state of the game currently is irreversible, because there are way too many characters, classes and skills, which is KoG’s fault too. They could have pulled back, concentrate on elevating the quality of dungeons and other game contents. Instead, they plan on making +14 a thing, elevating the current standard from +11 to +12, which requires people that play a F2P-game to do what? Throw money into KoG’s face AGAIN. See, I get what you mean and your point isn’t wrong at all, but until now they didn’t learn out of their mistakes. My issue is that requests such as revamping characters according to their own attributes, making stats of either magical or physical attack clearer… Those are basic things they have ignored this far, even though players have suggested such things decades ago. It makes me think that they take all the former suggestions, think about a way to get a lot of money out of them and in the end?
        Nobody will ever be happy 100%, but according to what you said, every character should be freaking weak. How come Raven has been the top tier so far but Metamorphy lost her only strong and signature move that got nerfed endlessly? How come Laby comes out and right before they nerf Herrscher like crazy? I just named two issues that both serve different purposes with the same goal: keeping the game alive, making people invest more in different characters/classes and thus making the money rolling. Everything leads to the issue of money-making and not particularly people-pleasing. I would be totally happy to shove my money into a company’s throat, if they truly consider not only Els KR players, but every consumer worldwide, if they didn’t cater to a little chunk of society that actually has lots of money to spend. And to top it off, if they didn’t end up in huge scandals that simply scream: “please, leave Elsword. Abandon the game already.”
        All I’m trying to say is the company is just crap and it’s sad that this game has to suffer from them. If you enjoy it, go ahead. It’s amazing that you find joy in it, but then at the same time, I wish that you can accept my frustration and disappointment that built up over the years. Both of your and my feelings are both valid.

        • Frost says:

          Sariel, don’t pay attention to him. At this point I wouldn’t even be surprised if KoGs hire “fanbots”, which fill forums/comments to protect their dirty reputation or hype/praise KoGs for anything they do. Btw, a lots of characters or skills is not hard to balance (And I wouldn’t say there more classes/skills then some other’s mmos have). And disbalance, p2w are not the main reasons why so many people quiting Elsword, dismantling gear etc. The main reason is that KoGs were caught on scamming around many different things.

          • Sariel says:

            I was thinking the exact same thing after I commented haha. The statement of that user was very superficial… didn’t really make any sense and I may sound weird, but whenever companies or people mess up in Korea, they say very similar things. It’s a very Korean thing that user said (I do understand some Korean, so xD).
            If this company, if these people were actually sorry, their apologies would be plastered everywhere. Look at their Twitter: Nothing of those sorts. They even delete comments there. Whatever it is, they try to hide and conceal it all instead of facing it.
            And believe me.. The main reason you proposed is only a big part of the picture. They messed up so many times over the years. This was the biggest f up of them all now and I truly wish that KoG gets stomped to the ground

  • Lebanese says:

    Let’s all just put the revamps on the prayer list and hope God just touch the minds of the Korenshield so the revamps are not stupid 😇😇😇

  • Rina says:

    Finalfuckingly

  • QWQ says:

    Sheat im late to the comments but im just gona say this even if you have big hopes for this revamps ..man i don’t trust this company dat they gona *fix* much after all those years

  • dddbuster says:

    REMOVE EVACUATION AND REPLACE IT WITH SOMETHING BETTER WHICH IS ANYTHING BUT EVAC

  • Solikin says:

    Hey, did KOG even read all of these comment? Wake up and stop crying

  • Human race says:

    Finally good changes. Now eliminate the sage stones and normalize the sage sockets stats (This one of the most problem in damage of elsword) to give a excelent balance.

  • X says:

    Anyone here gonna quit the game
    Or gonna accept KoG poison?

  • ifloppsy says:

    “Mega Cake Meeting canceled”

    so they were just gonna push out MORE FILLER for probably MONTHS until they got caught in some mess. i just know these reboots are going to be a mess because they probably wasn’t going to do this anytime soon and wasn’t gonna try to do anything to actually fix their game.

  • dddbuster says:

    Just give FB a teleport skill, he’s the slayer of time, he’s supposed to be so fast that light can’t reach him and he warps time, give him a teleport skill or make Flash AN ACTUAL FUCKING TELEPORT SKILL FOR MORE MOBILITY OPTION IN PVP AND NOT ANOTHER SHADOW STEP WITH IFRAMES

  • Stormquake says:

    What do these revamps entail, exactly? I keep hearing how everyone wants them, but I don’t even know what will happen.

    • Mujhaka says:

      So for garbo tier charactets on a f2p level these characters being Empire Sword and Comet Crusader this would provide a completely change the current meta and hopefully give them a chance to be viable in w.e fields they are lacking for the chars i commented that would be pve. Basically this can entail new passives or passive overhauls ,comannd attack changes, adjusted damage values, character scaling, removal of certain skills, new skolls, revival of old skills and so on

      • LastGlint says:

        Comet Crusader just needs a damage buff, he’s very tanky of course he’ll lack damage because of that. You sacrifice 1 stat for another is how the balance should work most of his skill lacks that to make up for his compensated tankiness, he has pretty good clearing kits. Or even better a Role system in raids in which we can really use right now. Also ignoring 100% of someone Def seems like something I would wish for.
        Empire Sword is nowhere near garbage, I don’t know what you’re smoking my friend.

        • Mujhaka says:

          You clearly dont play empire sword and the fact that i am forcibly made to sacrifice damage for a meta that doesnt exiat but am constantly nerfed is by far the dumbest thing ive heard today. Please stick to characters you actually play and mind your fucking buisness.

  • Malle says:

    Here’s my concern and correct me if I’m wrong.
    Of KoG decides that, let’s say Doombringer (which I believe is magical based attack) should be physical damage based cause his class is a pinched and they are putting “Emphasis will be placed on increasing the stat that most represents the class’s attack” then everyone with completed blue elrianode gear is about to dish out some major ED and time just to redo an entire endgame set.

    • Malle says:

      Instead of pinched I meant puncher* type class

    • Frost says:

      +5% from elrianode gear not such a big deal to rebuild the whole set imo. But if you was working hard maximising your weapon’s “magical attack up” – then it’s a lot of work thrown away for nothing.

      And to answer your question – yes, KoGs never care, if their actions ruins someone’s hard work on char.

  • Flow says:

    Why is Chung last to get the reboot…

  • Akio says:

    Well a char balance for the dev who let the top players do it for them, so they really can do it?

  • Xamy says:

    Aisha will be OP ^^.

  • im toxic says:

    this comment section is so toxic

  • Elbored says:

    All characters will have an escape skill?

    Give them homing easy catch skills also while they’re at it.

  • Vordran says:

    Well, let’s hope they cover force mods aswell. Devi for example has next to no useable force skill besides energy wave. Let’s hope they rework them a bit. Then again, this is KoG so I keep my hopes limited.
