[1] UPDATES

 

 

 

 

1. Machina Awakening

※ (Correction) Please note that the Costume Discount Coupon for completing Awakening Quests will ONLY BE RELEASED FOR MACHINA AFTER THE 15TH MAY UPDATE PATCH. The Costume Discount Coupon for completing Awakening Quests are not released for the other classes. 

 

 

◆ Awakening Quest

 

  •  [Lv. 90][Awakening] New Power Beckons
  •  Players who have completed their 2nd specialization but have not taken the 2nd specialization quest can still take this  Awakening quest.     (Classes without Awakening cannot take the quest.)
  •  Players who have not completed 2nd specialization yet will be able to see the exclamation mark above the NPC’s head but will not be able to take the quest.
  •  You can get the Awakening quest from Priestess of Darkness Mocha.
  •  When you accept the Awakening quest and complete all related quests, Awakening tab will become available in Skill window [K] and you can start using Awakened skills.

 

◆ [Ruina]

 

• Before Awakening, Ruina had the problem of skill combos being fixed and all her damage concentrated in the successive [Overcharge]. In order to solve this problem, [Overcharge] skill has been changed to a skill with cooldown that deals damage on its own instead of inheriting damage of the preceding skill. Now an additional control allows you to choose to attack without advancing forward.

• With the above changes in [Overcharge] which used to have a high damage weightage, damage of other skills have increased for the overall balance in skill damage.

• Also, with Awakening, Ruina is no longer bound by fixed skill combos. [Duck] skill will be revamped so that it can be used to cancel any main skills while they are in use to allow you to follow up with another skill. This allows various combo plays that suits your skill proficiency and preferences. To provide complete freedom in successive skills, increase in damage with [Gear Step] has been removed.

• Apart from that, you can now manage Steam more easily when attacking enemies, even without the pointless repeated usage of Duck, and various skill conveniences have improved, including Awakening skill.

 

Rock Fist (Active) : Slams the ground up to 4 times to create circular shockwaves nearby. Afterwards, Ruina pulls her fist from the ground and additionally attacks enemies with the shards that pop out of the ground. The more she slams the ground, the more shards to shoot. Can be used in the air.

 

Beast Rush (Active) : Dashes forward and hits enemies with a powerful shoulder attack and when the attack hits enemies accurately, a rampant combination of Ruina's skills is used. Ruina is invulnerable during the rampant attack and the attack can be cancelled any time with [Duck].

 

[Awakened Passive] Duck : When you are using [Flow Up], [Flow Through], [Flying Knee Kick], [Kidney Blow], or [Overhit], you can cancel it any time by using [Duck] and cooldown time of the cancelled skill will be reduced. Cooldown is reduced even when the skill is cancelled after it hits targets so you can use this to relay successive skills and make use of the cooldown reduction.

 

[Awakened Passive] Overclock : Deals additional damage when an attack hits enemies accurately with Critical while [Overclock] buff is active.   (Overclock skill has been changed to a normal buff skill. Please refer to [Machina Awakening Balance Changes] for more details)

 

[Awakened Passive] Steam Mastery : When you use [Flow Up], [Flow Through], [Flying Knee Kick], or [Kidney Blow], you will get 2 [Steam].

 

[Awakened Passive] Overcharge : [Overcharge]'s Attack Power increases and when you enter [Back Direction Key] during Level 2 charging, the character will not move forward but attack on the spot with a powerful punching action.

 

 

◆ [Defensio]

 

• With Awakening, changes have been made as a part of [Tanker and Healer revamp]. Most importantly, a shield that absorbs damage equal to a proportion of party member's HP can be given to party members with [Awakened Passive] Overclock skill. For more details, please refer to [Machina Awakening Balance Changes].

• Like Ruina, increase in damage for successive skill combo using [Gear Step] has been removed, but using [Current Mastery] Passive in skill combo creates [Recovery Current] which can be exploded using the Awakening skill [Reverse Order] to deal damage. Also, more skills can now be used in the air.

 

Reverse Order (Active) : Commands nearby [Recovery Currents] to immediately change into [Explosion Currents] to attack enemies. Also, if there are [Marks] on enemies created by [Taunting Blow], they will explode too.

Ruination (Active) : Descends rapidly from midair and hits the ground with a fist to lift the ground in front and create shockwaves that attack enemies.

[Awakened Passive] Air Shove : [Air Shove] is activated automatically at a fixed rate when you are attacked on the ground or in the air.

[Awakened Passive] Overclock : When [Overclock] buff is used, a shield that absorbs damage equal to a certain percentage of ally's HP protects nearby allies for a fixed duration.

[Awakened Passive] Taunting Blow : [Taunting Blow] can be used in the air and using it in the air will recover half the cooldown time. However, [Provoke] and [Mark] effects are not created when Taunting Blow is used in the air.

[Awakened Passive] Current Mastery : When [Step Up] is followed with [Beat Down] or [Leap Over], 1 [Recovery Current] will be created.
