    Playerbase: “Hee, guys, Minerva is useful in this raid!”

  • Naillic says:

    They nerf minerva, that’s totally fair and deserved

    I just see problems with other characters that have average buff/debuff and can’t dps (RaS/prophetess for example, there are many others), they’ll never get taken in these raids when you got characters that are just better in buff/dps
    they should buff their buff or let them have some dps

    And still CL, I think it is still not balanced, a character that gives 30% magical,buffs/debuffs/mp heal, basically everything you need and he can even carry like pure dps character
    I’m still waiting for them to choose to make him wether a buffer or a dps, there shouldn’t be something that can be perfect at both, it outshines everything else

    CL reminds me Mtm before they rebalanced her ( be honest almost all aisha were mtm because she was broken), she was both strongest physical buff and one of the strongest dps, after rebalance, she’s a strong buffer/debuffer but has less damage making her more legit i think than she was before

    Waiting for a real balance patch ….

  • James Norrington says:

    Bruh I wonder if there are more incompetent devs than KOG working in NA/INT. They screwed up the +10 FoJ event that many players were waiting for. They changed the weapon schedule at the last minute so that most of the players who have a life/work could not get the weapon. What was supposed to be for several hours ended up being for a few hours.

    And once again I was stupid to download this garbage game all over again believing that I would finally be able to have a decent alt to enjoy the game. I better delete this garbage game and get back to Monster Hunter.

    • Katja Eclair says:

      If it’s just about a decent alt, the FoJ isn’t going to do much for it, and a +10 definitely won’t get it into the endgame

      You’re just deluding yourself

      • Flare Kyn says:

        I ended up missing the event just due to not being able to stay up, but tbh, I feel like my amuleted Apo-Void would’ve been stronger than it anyway, even with Mystic Stones applied (then again, that may be because I avoid Polarize like the plague). In any case, I’ve managed to reach the CP requirement for Berthe Raid Story Mode using my Apo-Void, so I’m technically able to get the stronger VoS weapon without needing FoJ, even if it is gonna take me a while.

      • James Norrington says:

        I don’t give a shit about trash poorly planned endgame content since this is more for hardcore farmers or whales. I just wanted to make sure I had a weapon that is better than Void. When I changed my void +10 to FoJ +10 my CP increased absurdly and I planned to use this on my alt chara to at least make Rig dung farming more comfortable. I love how Elsword fanboys try to put the blame on the players even when KOG does shit. Here take this oil and use it to lubricate KOG () () every time they mess up the game and someone complains about it.

        • Flare Kyn says:

          “I love how Elsword fanboys try to put the blame on the players even when KOG does shit.” Um… what? I’m pretty sure neither of us did that. Dafuq are you talking about?

          • James Norrington says:

            ”You’re just deluding yourself” << Looking at that comment it makes look like it was my fault for supposedly thinking the free weapon was good for endgame (as if I give a shit about whale-endgame-content). He makes it look like it's my fault for supposedly thinking the weapon was good and not KOG's for doing poorly planned event. Now about you: I didn't mention you. I already know that you are one of those who love KOG regardless of whether it does shit or not. lol I always see your comments trying to soften the shit that KOG does when someone makes a criticism.

          • leedongshin says:

            kog is shit player that defend kog when kog making something is shit too..

            also flare isnt you alrd llaying this game for so long? why you still at berthe story lol

          • Flare Kyn says:

            @leedongshin Because I’m not a whale and I’m not on Elsword 24/7. And as I said earlier, I don’t like Polarize. I know it gives more CP and increases damage, but I DON’T like that it makes you take more damage as well.

            @James Norrington “I already know that you are one of those who love KOG regardless of whether it does shit or not. lol I always see your comments trying to soften the shit that KOG does when someone makes a criticism.” STUPID criticism. I’m not at all saying KoG’s blameless, in fact I actually agree that the schedule change was a dick move, but some people say stupid stuff that make things sound worse than they actually are!

          • Flare Kyn says:

            Wait, there’s another FoJ event this week?!

  • Whiite says:

    Minerva: *Do something*
    KoG: i’m gonna end this woman whole career

    • NoPainNoGain says:

      So tiring when they do these blanket nerfs for raid content and just ignore howit affects the character for every other content. I still feel bad for Aishas’ nerf’.

  • shanks dungs says:

    @Flare Kyn another foj event but this is +9 instead of +10 and you need to do some tasks instead of standing there waiting to receive. lmfao thanks els kusoge KOG
