    Epic 9.6 Class Balance Update

    Dear players,

    At the release of 9.6, there was a heavy rework of classes. Steering each class to either DD, tank or support and away from a “1-man dungeon party”. We picked a top class for each role and scaled other classes down from there:
    • DD: Void Mage
    • Tank: Templar
    • Support: Oracle

    These changes were never intended to be final, class balance was and will always be an on-going project and getting it correct first time would defy all odds. However, listening to your feedback, we will make some adjustments in the coming weeks and look for implementation on 16th April.

    Whilst we do still want classes to have certain roles to fill, we will raise the minimum and maximum bar. As you can imagine, the balancing project demands a lot of time from both Webzen and Gala and an adjustment for every class to happen on this date is unlikely to happen. Whilst we have the groundwork now set with 9.6, we shall prioritize the more popular played classes for the update in a few weeks’ time and roll out additional changes following this date.

    Thank you.

    Regards,
    Your Rappelz team

    This is such a simple problem to fix yet they are not admitting it or changing it quick smart. Such an easy issue to check and change, they are purposefully ruining Corr class for what reason who knows!! Such terrible management, advertise 0.4%, give us 0.04%, that is just stupid and to maintain it and not change it to what they promised is simply negligent. Honestly starting to wonder if those who are running this game care?

    WK was revamped, and it is really good aside from a few short comings. It doesn't have to be an AoE monster like VM, but combine Gravity Amp with Wide Windy Shackles and DD gets a whole lot easier for everyone.

    Corruptor Vampirism was advertised to be changed to 0.4% x Vampirism skill level, instead what we have is 0.04% NOT 0.4%, someone has put an extra decimal place, so you have made it 10x worse from what you have advertised, this is a really silly error and I am quite sure I am right here. This correction should not require testing and a lot of time because it is an obvious error.

    Well currently, Master Breeders are supposed to be, lore wise, staff magicians hanging back and using their pets, but their stats and builds are for 1h Mace and Shield, but Master class spells is geared for 2h Staff users with no Mace skills. There is a serious disconnect here between what is given and what actually gets used. Because MBs stats favor mace damage way over from a staff. Attack Spells thus serve only to kite, then its mace time.

    Somewhere along the way here, a disconnect occurred and over the years the disconnection has gotten wider and wider.

    But didnt they say they would listen to our suggestions when they opened the class balancing section in forums.

    I must not know how to read or something cause I missed the part where he said he did dd1,dd2,dd3 in an hour.

    What I did read is that he said he TESTED dd1,dd2 and left dd3 cause it was slow.

    I feel like you guys really did quite a number on Magus this patch. I played both VM and Magus.

    With the changes to bleak squall, the damage that was added into it's ratio (negligible difference really) doesn't take away from the fact that you could hit spam bleak at least 5 times with okay-ish cast speed in the time that you can now spam 1.

    Understanding that 0cd is a bit ridiculous for some classes, Magus needs a little love now. Personally, I see no reason to play it over VM now, Magus is less tanky, has lower single target damage, aoes are practically useless, and the 35 - 40% patk/matk bonus support of gust / focused gust gives doesn't make up for the seriously lost dps from more bleak spams.

    One of my primary issues though, is that there's no 'good' way to stack Enchant Weapon: Earth stacks now. Maybe there's something I can go about the way I'm playing, but unless you're attacking a single target for a long time, it's a wasted dot that doesn't stack quickly. Switching between casting abilities and auto attacking isn't seamless, there's a huge delay if you try to do both.

    Both my classes are geared decently well, but if Magus is being toned down in terms of fitting into the support class, it forces you to party with a DD, only to give THEM the damage boost and make you actually feel useful.

    Why don´t you make the other classes better as well?
    I am a War Kahuna player, I am used to see that my forgotten class never get a revamp. Make the underpowered classes better instead of just nerf those which are good as they are.

    PS: sorry i should have better say I am playing a forgotten race! Poor Gaia!
