The War’s Onset patch is live today on Skyforge

You know about the class balance changes. You know how to do war with Pantheon Wars. You’re ready to jump into the newest update to Skyforge with determination. Considering the fact that the update goes live today whether you’re necessarily ready for it or not, your being ready for it is probably a good thing.

In the event that you’re not ready for it, read that first paragraph again in a less hopeful fashion and possibly roll your eyes a few times. That’ll fix it up proper.

The full patch notes, as always, reveal the hard data on how class mechanics are being changed. There are also several quality-of-life improvements, like increased money from Battles and improved Might and Vitality increases from equipment upgrades. If you’re waiting for the game to patch right now, you have plenty of time to trawl through the full patch notes and watch the amusing Pantheon Wars trailer below.

Pashgan Then again, the DOT is perhaps needed to counteract the incessant DPS, in particular when dealing with ranged swam mobs.

It’s the dawn of the second day, and I’m still tweaking my Gunner. It’s really nice now, where the core change is that Missile Salvo has essentially gone from being useless compared to its right click AoE counterpart into being the class’s core burst damage strategy. The next best thing they did is add a talent that lets you not only continue to fire at full speed in machine gun mode when the meter fills, but also inflict the DoT that normally requires Fire Burst/Fire Sector. It still plows through crowds a little more slowly than seasoned Kinetics may be accustomed to seeing, but its boss killing potential is a welcome boost for the class.
As for Kinetic itself, I haven’t played it a whole lot, but what I saw wasn’t bad. Chain Gravitation is now much more costly to use, but the class has a few other slower acting AoEs it can use that still obliterate things just as easily. The Sledgehammer combo isn’t dead yet, as it still does plenty of damage if Mark of Death joins in on the fun, and now you have enough time to land ten all of your punches, probably for free, too. I’d guess that Kinetic has been downgraded to Berserker-tier, and Berserker is still a great class.
Not a whole lot else to talk about at this time. Alchemist is still as good as it was before (due to be preparing in advance with plenty of Discharge Recovery, Critical Chance, and Luck), I still need to see what they changed on Knight, Order Influence is nice I guess even though it’s another blatant cash sink (4000 argents to get 2000 points from a daily mission where the fourth out of eight provinces, for example, requires 3500 points, followed by 6000 points for the fifth… Eh, you do the math, it’s basically like upgrading a mid-rank Vector), and Invasion Power is now a thing, so maybe the Salad Avatar won’t be as much of a pain to deal with if everyone does their part in the invasion.

Pashgan digi_owl I suspect as much. but even with reduced dot, the bonus damage to other attacks and the potential to make mobs run off in panic makes for less hairy swarm fights.

Rozyn Pashgan Every Pantheon now got an Academy. You can just join one an get bonus rewards for yourself and the pantheon. I think it is a solid system to get more ppl into pantheons. 

We integrate all our academy members and treat them as full members as far as it is possible. But you only have a max. of 30 slots for it. We could fill up atleast 60 or more … :P

digi_owl Archer – or more like DoTs – will be nerfed soon (if devs didn’t do it yet). Witch does almost twice more damage even after nerf so if you like archer you should unlock either witch or gunner (gunner has less mobility though) to make your toon “nerf-proof”.

Well this was a surprise. Made good progress today as apparently right now is a “golden age” thanks to the defeat of a avatar. Thus everyone earns extra sparks. Also, archer is a right wrecking blow with wildfire. Why oh why did i unlock that class only now…

Vanblod Rozyn Pashgan Yeah it seemed to have the potential for some fun quick session play with friends, but at first it was too easy to outlevel each other and had really clunky social controls. I’m not even sure if I could convince my friends to re-try it if I wanted to.

Pashgan I dunno, they made the final boss of 501 damn easy to defeat and seem to have made the paladin less painful to play. now to check the changes to the rift adventure…

Rozyn Pashgan The limits are still there I would assume. This game leaves such a sour taste in my mouth whenever I see it =/ I actually had a cool group of dudes to play with but the utter incompetence on several aspects of the game just made me give it up.
