[All Classes]

"I miss seeing the dependable Warrior with his Longsword and Shield, as well as Ranger's skillful arrows embroider the skies with green." This simple thought gave birth to "Succession."

We wanted to make combat only with Main Weapons feel as complete, cohesive, and fun as that with Awakening Weapons. We realized that to do that, we would need to make large changes to make Main Weapon combat comparable to Awakening Weapon combat. Thus, we prepared the Succession content with three key things in mind.

 

Firstly, we wanted Main Weapon skills to be a match for Awakening Weapon skills in combat. We especially tried to bring up Main Weapon performance to be on par with that of Awakening Weapons in PvE. We felt it was important that choosing Succession would not disadvantage you in character growth or PvE.

 

Secondly, we wanted to bring Main Weapon combat to the next level by revamping certain skills. Which skills we chose to depended per class. However, our goal was always to bring out the unique characteristics of each class.

 

Thirdly, we wanted Main Weapon skills to be simpler to use. Because there are many different skills for Main Weapons, they can be difficult to master. That is why we decided to have a similar number of new skills to the number of Awakening skills, which should be enough for there still to be some variety.
 

We hope that you have fun and feel powerful using these new and strategically upgraded Main Weapon skills. You can even supplement them with certain Absolute skills, just as you could with Awakening Weapon skills.

Apart for developing this new "Succession" content, we will also continue to improve upon existing content and balance classes. Therefore, we hope that you choose between Succession and Awakening not because you think one is stronger than the other, but because you enjoy one type of combat over the other. There should no wrong choice between Succession and Awakening.
