Skyforge goes on a nerfing-and-buffing spree with Cybernetic Alliance

    
14

As part of its upcoming Cybernetic Alliance update, Skyforge’s dev team is taking on the daunting task of rebalancing all of its classes, with the goal of creating “a much more diverse range of classes within a single group and, at the same time, make all DPS classes completely viable for PvE encounters.” Piece o’ cake, for sure.

A new dev blog today discusses a few of the ways some of the more underpowered or unloved characters are getting oblique buffs. For example, the Strength of Unity DPS buff is intended to encourage people to bring different damage classes (rather than just clumps of Gunners and Cryomancers). Archers and Witches are getting more direct ability buffs. And sorry Gunners — you’re due for a big ol’ nerf to bring you “slightly more in line with other classes.”

“Along with the classes mentioned above, players can expect additional changes of varying significance for the Monk, Alchemist, Berserker, Kinetic, Slayer, and Necromancer,” says Allods Team.

Jack Kerras I find their ass backwards mob design a bigger problem than the limits, as it makes every fight involving “trash” a DPS race.

Lord Zorvan Sadly the graphics look good, but perform like a beached whale.

Nordavind Seeing similar traffic on the games sub-reddit. There are some diehards hanging on, in particular one guy that seems to play the RU server and feeding back previews to the rest, but most of the traffic is a trickle of “is it worth downloading?” posts.
Rally sad, as the setting etc has potential. But the whole this is just covered in grind and weird, itchy, mechanics.

Archer, witch, and gunner are “unloved”? What kind of bizarro world have i entered.

Also, that a damn lot of might nodes for that new symbol. And  i am guessing they are 600 sparks or more pr node. Allod giveth, Allod taketh away…

Bored again, plotting number of comments per article and drawing graph as with Black Desert yesterday (http://massivelyop.com/2016/05/23/dont-hold-your-breath-for-black-deserts-class-awakening-system/)
Launch date at orange column. The outlier early on was P2W controversy, but removing that will not change the trend noticeably.
