General Balance

Hallucination Set

  • 4 set effect changed:  Increases the critical hit rate by 15/18/20%. On Crit Hit, Hallucination's duration +1s. (Cooldown: 0.4s).
  • 6 set effect changed: If Hallucination lasts more than 9s, gain Reality for 90s 120s. Reality: Damage to foes +12/14/15%. Crit Rate +5/7/8%. On Crit Hit, Reality duration +1s. (Cooldown: 0.4s.)

Developer Comment

The Hallucination set has been already improved once in the past, but there are still unreasonable parts, so we decided to improve it further.
We reduced the difficulty to maintain the set effect and increased its duration.


Gunner

PvE

Increased the PvE Damage of all Skills except for basic attacks by 4.8%.

Developer Comment

Sharpshooter reached the demanded Identity Meter management based on the last balance adjustments. But the Damage in the current end content is still not at the required level, which is why it has been increased once more.

Developer Comment

Summoner has limited pools of Skills, Engravings and Tripods to choose from, if you want to deal high Damage. This results in a very static gameplay. We decided that this part needs a change even for adventurers who are trying to create a new Summoner. Therefore, the General Skills, Summoning Skills and Tripods that are difficult to use due to the long Casting time or lack of effectiveness, have been improved. Now you can pick your play style actively and utilizes the Summoning Skills in a more efficient way.


Martial Artist

PvE

Reduced the PvE Damage of all Shock Skills by 3.7%.

Developer Comment

Since the last balance patch, Scrapper has been showing high average Damage and excellent performance in the end content. The Damage of the Shock Training Scrapper has been slightly lowered, since it seems to be (one of) the highest Damage dealer in the current end content.

Warrior

Class Engraving

Berserker's Technique
  • Changed: During Burst, Crit Damage +35/50/70% Damage +16/24/32%. Negates Exhaustion after Burst ends.

Developer Comment

According to the endgame metrics, Mayhem Berserker is performing as intended. Berserker's Technique on the other hand still requires some additional improvements, even after the recent buff.
