    wow BM buff lets go!

  • Brancliff says:

    Do you guys remember that time when they said they were going to explain themselves when it comes to this sort of thing

    … Although, for what its worth, this is still far beyond what they’re willing to explain in Granola Chase – we can’t even get patch notes over there :/

  • TheLuiz says:

    They literally just swapped the Shadow Bolt numbers and called it a day.

    Also, no Nyx buff?

    • Veith says:

      The difference is shown when you think of clearing mobs stacked vertically – now the main damage source will be the spear itself, and not the explosion.
      Mainly it won’t affect your gameplay, but when it comes to enemies stacked vertically, it’s actually a good change.

      • Santiago says:

        not just good for mobs that are stacked vertically but the main reason why they swap the numbers is because in many cases shadow bolt don’t hit the enemies with the explosion missing the main damage of the skills because of Platform, for example bosses on 12-3 where they are flying if you cast a shadow bolt on them it wont do damage for the reason that shadow bolt will make the explosion the explosion on the bottom platform and in many cases on MR if Bosses are in the edge of a Platform the explosion wont connect

  • Raid says:

    Actually they should nerf EVERYTHING in PvP because as example Hypersonic is already a One Shot but they still are like ‘huh,.. Buff’

    • lolme says:

      they really need to make pvp last longer like old times

      • Dood with a M says:

        Absolutely second that. more fighting, more fun, more potential comebacks.

        it could feel lke S3 again. it’s possible. but. they got a dam long way to go. damn long way.

        May they get this right. I’ll be seeing what they’ll do.

  • Ritsu says:

    Meaningless patch.

  • Katja Eclair says:

    Nice change to Frenzy, but still no way for Crimson Rose/BM to reduce enemies’ wind resist (bleeding resist) from her own skills/passives.

  • Michele says:

    LET’S GO RICHTER MAINS

  • Nisha says:

    so they buffed RT who was already strong, but no NL buff again? typical KOG

    • Loy says:

      Compared to other dps classes RT falls behind greatly, so yea a buff was needed plus all he really got was 10% boss dmg

      • Nisha says:

        compared to other DPS NL don’t exist, and ppl don’t consider her as a buffer(some ppl don’t even know she can buff). sure, buff RT…

        • Alysea says:

          The worst is that some people tell me that “Nisha DPS is good an her buffs too”
          So if she her buffs are good why no one take her in raid ?

          • lolme says:

            nisha player exist?

          • Nisha says:

            in rosso may be her buff is good(still i don’t see parties with NL as a buffer every day, to say least) and her dmg is ok, not good, but fine. but in berthe… lets say if you don’t have friends/guild to take you in berthe, you should be very lucky to even clear it, not to mention farm…

          • Nisha says:

            know what’s worst? the worst is the fact that ppl used to say her dmg is good even before she got buffed. you know, she was so bad that even KOG noticed she need a buff, and we talking about developers who ignored HR and Rose for years…

          • CaYbeX says:

            And about aes?

        • Loy says:

          The thing you’re failing to realize is Nisha is a buffer, people might not consider her one but kog does. RT does nothing for the party damage wise, he doesn’t even have a debuff. He is pure dps and you’re complaining because a falling dps(some people dont even consider him a dps might i add) got a 10% boss damage increase when classes like Dayb and DB exist? Make it make sense.

    • HaHA says:

      Have you TRIED richter? Strong?! You’re funny. Support classes can out dps this mans. He gives nothing useful to the party. Not only that, since most of his damage comes from self buffs, he has insanely low CP compared to most other classes. Do you know his only reason for even doing a bit of damage? Literally just viert. VIERT SIMULATOR. Literally the only skill he uses for bossing is viert. Nothing else. Gott waffles on very very rare occations. Don’t say nothing if you don’t know about the class. Also go back and check the update history on elwiki and you’ll see the last time he got actual proper changes/buffs was when all classes got reworked which was years ago. When people think of richter they only remember him from his old days. Now he’s utter garbage, unless it’s trosh cuz spalsh damage.

  • lolme says:

    RT just spam weerfen spear

    • AinHR says:

      RT only rely on Viert – Werfeen Speer, if werfeen is cd, RT’s completely useless

      • Nisha says:

        the hell are you talking about? RT got a passive the decrease Werfen cooldown when he use projection attacks. Werfen can get ready in no time if you know what to use after. also Gottwaffe do good dmg as well, especially on big bosses.

        • Yazara says:

          Yes, good point – BIG BOSSES
          where skill on small targets? werfen alone is no more enough and passives to reduce cd are rng.
          RT is poor against small targets and bullsh*it rng with passive to reduce cd. 20%? rlly???

          • Nisha says:

            ok, look:

            gott waffe awerage dmg( to human size target) 15259% full dmg 31870%
            mod gott waffe 14137% average and 38361% full

            now look at mod fantasy 14953% its not size reliant, so there is no extra dmg to big bosses and that NL’s strongest skills, other braveries are 11-13k%(one bravery is even a summon, not a dmg skill)

            know what’s funny about all this? KOG released another giant boss. poor RT, he definitely needs a buff…

          • Ritsu says:

            not the person who couldn’t sub 2 henir for years

        • HaHA says:

          LOL. Do you know why no one uses gott? It’s cuz the cast time is around 2-3 seconds. You can’t simply look at numbers and call it a day. You really haven’t played this class enough. Idk why you’re singling out richter for the ONE change he’s gotten in literally years. Just stop. And it’s not like it’s a crazy change cuz he still needs a lot more changes than a 10% boss damage increase. That doesn’t solve that his gameplay is viert simulator.

          • Ritsu says:

            But… it’s actually used, speaking from experience of high gear Richters using it alongside Viert. Their damage results were excellent.
            Plus, on big bosses he can also use Sakrosankt, like every other Ain. Stop thinking that he’s weak. Just because one of his skills is insanely good, doesn’t mean the rest has to be.
            I’d love to see increased cast speed of Gott Waffe, but not damage buffs, since he’s got absolutely enough of it.

        • KaselKR says:

          Let´s be honest. NL just got buffed beacuse RaS mains wanted to do damage. NL was designed to be a very good dps on small bosses (where big bosisng chars don’t do anything) and she performed very good at that. As I said, Kog gave her buffs to make RaS mains change path if they wanted to do dmg while having party buffs. Now, NL is very strong and I don’t see your point about buffing her, maybe you just don’t know how to play her? . RT needed this for sure, his damage was the same as BL (if using only red eid) . The reason you don’t see NL players as supports is because NL IS NOT A SUPPORTIVE CHAR, yes, she has party buffs, but she’s still dps, not as Ras, Nyx , BL, CC. You’re not support just for having party buffs.

  • fal says:

    a normal patch as usual in the buff/nerf waves they focus in the same characters, the furious blade was a surprise, i just wonder if the 1.2x damage to the skill is better than then maxikization lose. for the shadow bolt i also think its a good change it kinda makes more sense too.
    for other character it seem they are buffing them to supply the support nerf we got before, and a small balance patch? are they actuslly following what they said? changing little by little but more often seems better than waiting a whole rework/reborn/remake/etc patch to fix some characters.

  • Earlygame says:

    Are the 4th paths gonna be released every 2 months? lol

  • dafuq says:

    Justice where
    Aether Sage: can’t deal damage even she has over 6M CP to maximize the aura buff, probably the worst class in this game
    Code Sariel: all other Eves have good supporting skill but she only gets a base job Aura.
    Devi: no one wants her if she can’t be DPS
    Diangelion and Nisha: ???????

    These classes are waiting for some nice revamp to revive, and you buff Richter

    • Soren says:

      Diangelion does not need any revamp or anything of the sorts, if anything they need a bit of nerfing…

    • HaHA says:

      Have you played richter in end game? NO ONE TAKES HIM IN RAIDS. I can endlessly go on about his problems which you clearly don’t know about. The last time he’s gotten any real changes was fucking revamps years ago. So stop hating. Literally all he got was a 10% boss damage increase, There’s many more issues with the class.

    • Yazara says:

      What? You was even playing RT on end game content? Maybe you should f’k count on one hand how many RT mains ARE RIGHT NOW?!
      You guys are blind or what? This class is in dead corner for long time. I can bet many players when see Richter in team ask self: this player is masochist to playing this class in nowadays?
      THIS IS WHAT THEY DID WITH THIS CLASS.
      Is useless in total this term. Let’s change Richter into one skill monster (when was reboot 2 YEARS AGO) and they leaving this class in this status.
      And this buff on Richter is pretty poor. 10% dmg more on boss? Yey, thank you. Ach wait I still stuck in moment WHEN PASSIVES TO REDUCE CD ARE NOT ACTIVATING BC OF LOW CHANCE?!?! DPS with rng? Srly? Passives to reduce cd are MAIN calculating his dmg. If passives will work (but not work, or work as (…) ) then will deal more dmg, if not then dmg is cuted x2 or x3 even.
      Ppl didn’t ask of what they giving. Of what ppl asking didn’t get and probably never get or devs will change mind or going check how Richter usefull (haha, rofl) is on end game dungeons.

      • Ritsu says:

        I honestly had a stroke reading this, both because this Latin America-alike English and how not true it is. Richter is a good dps class, it’s not only him not having anything for the party. That’s just the usual DPS character problem. How to solve it btw: job change to a support class

        • Yazara says:

          … I planned write smth else but nvm, is pointless. I’m tired to talk with ppl who think Richter is good and no need change.
          Just is like talking with tree.

          • CielXYZ says:

            I am glad that they’ve finally gave Richter some small buffs but what I do not understand is why salty people are crying about Richter’s small changes

        • Loy says:

          “RT is a good dps” is the most delusion i’ve heard in awhile. I’ve mained RT since release, and currently main a well built one. With that being said he isnt a good dps. Anyway can people stop talking about classes they dont play? RT hasnt got a actual damage buff in years and falls flat compared to all the other dps, but a 10% damage buff is the end of the world.

    • Loy says:

      Because Devi is a dps class? No dps class that cant dps yet andbdont provide anything for the party gets taken unless they’re fresh, plus devi is hella busted

    • Maybe because Devi’s main focus is DPS? Hmm….it’s not like she’s busted, let’s give her some more attention.

      Yeah no, she’s doing her job perfectly.

  • Samii says:

    As someone who just started trying Richter, this is pretty nice. BlM deserves a buff too

  • CaYbeX says:

    And about aes?

    • fal says:

      if you are sometime in the game you already know you dont have to expect anything good for those characters, specially for unpopular clases.
      maybe they will “buff” those jobs but with everyone else too after 6 months like they usually do. or just give another new equipment/system to make weak characters seem strong and strong ones seem a raid whale.
      they also tend to overnerf some characters just to make it seem fine later with “strong buffs”, just grind with the character you enjoy and hope one day your class will be noticed by korean sempais who give money/player influx to the game, and expect to not overshine or you will get the same problems like every new charafter except rose…. or just change your character to a good one if you care too much of your efficency.
      character change ticket when?

  • FerozRipper says:

    Ah yes i can finally style on ppl with air broken phatasam. No more having to line them up, now i can just air snipe. Hehehe.

    Is good to have this buff for RT now ppl wont just ask me to freeze in raids.

  • BOOTYCHEECKS says:

    WHERE IS 4TH PATH I DONT CARE ABOUT THIS PATCH GIVE ME 4TH PATHS

  • Yamo says:

    Let’s talk about Minerva then… ._. I really hope they’re gonna do something about all Roses with that 4th path update.

  • DanYami says:

    Rune Master buff when

  • Majestrix says:

    [Mod] Shockwave – Cutter damage 2,736%

    [Mod] Photon Flare damage 1,791.6%

    What is Balance Patch?

    • Ritsu says:

      Did you just take the PvP values or something? If anything, that’s quite normal percentages for PvP
      (Dungeon Mod Photon Flare is bad though, but not as bad as this implies)

  • Xamy says:

    buff aes pls :^)

  • Limmy says:

    sweet! RT buffs~ and BM was always a easy class. She even outdamages a CBS in earlygame. Even though CS doesn’t do damage.

  • ocsb says:

    RT needed that buff, because the initial dps of RT is bad, at this point HR is way better than RT

  • LemonCakes says:

    Fix AeS, pls :c especially in her passives
