General provisions

The damage of absolutely all skills has been changed. The mana requirements have also changed.

We have tried to reduce the difference in damage between the strongest and weakest skills, and also significantly reduced the damage of mass skills.

  • Sword
    Let's see what the sword with confusion will be like. Of course, we could give him control skills, but we would not want to copy existing classes.
    The new system of critical strikes, as well as the ability to ignore 25% of the resistance of the enemy should make this class even more relevant and even necessary to some extent. 
  • Blade
    Klass was good before, maybe even too much. Therefore, there were no significant changes. But even along with the strengthening of other classes, the blade will definitely not lose its relevance.
  • The Staff
    The Staff felt good before the upgrade. We just tightened up the weak points and diversified the set of skills.
  • Bow
    Many people have been asking for something to do with onions for a long time. The way it looks now, we really like it. Let's hope that after two years of unsuccessful attempts, true archers still prefer him as the main class.
  • Sun
    Removal of a vestige of wind protection gave life to a new skill that can further increase the damage of this class. We advise you to pay attention to the new Mysterious Power. The skill can now really help in combat. Moving half the duration of the Yang Protection effect to the 4th branch will protect the sun as a class from the status "only good as an additional one". 
  • Moon
    Three new skills with unique mechanics that we had to work hard for. Since PvP will last longer after changing the formulas for critical strikes, the ability of the moon warrior to deplete mana, and therefore increase the damage dealt, will give this class a second life. The warrior of the moon is like no other suitable for fighting at a long distance.
  • Healer
    It's now quite dangerous to buff a healer as a health regenerating class (due to the increased survivability). Therefore, we decided to increase his offensive performance. Chance to hit will make it possible to impose negative effects from skills, and the chance of a critical hit will not be far behind other classes in damage. 
  • Zither
    We mainly tried to strengthen the zither as a support class. It seems to have worked out.

Critical hit

One of the goals of this update is to reduce overall damage taken in PvPNot that this is a critical problem, but we would like to increase the duration of PvP, at least in order to fully reveal some classes, their skills and, in general, everything that could be used in a longer battle. But along with this, another problem was discovered - the inability to scale some very important characteristics, namely, probabilitystrength and ignoring a critical hitWith each subsequent update, we will add new content, including new ways to strengthen the character. But some characteristics have a quite limited range of possible values ​​(for example, 0-100%). This means that if the game already has a sufficient number of buffs of a certain characteristic, then it is no longer possible to add new ones, but if they do appear, then all the old ones will have to be weakened. And such a vicious circle does not bode well. And besides, with an overabundance of everything related to a critical hit, lethality and stability become irrelevant (why increase lethality if you can eat porridge, which in terms of efficiency will be equal to tens of thousands of some kind of lethality?). 

Here is our recipe for getting rid of this scourge:

All bonuses related to critical strike now have no % (except skill buffs). The higher the characteristic, the less effective it is. For example, increasing critical strike chance from 0 to 100 will give you an actual 15% critical strike chance, while increasing from 100 to 200 will only add 9-10%Here is an approximate ratio of the old and new probability of a critical (the same for ignoring a critical hit):

  • 10% before = 15% after
  • 20% before = 24% after
  • 30% before = 30% after
  • 40% before = 36% after
  • 60% before = 46% after
  • 80% before = 55% after
  • 100% before = 63% after

The situation is slightly different for Critical Strike Power (decreasing effectiveness is much slower). In general, it’s even good that at the beginning this indicator increases rapidly - for beginners this will be a definite plus:

  • 10% before = 19% after
  • 20% before 31% after
  • 30% before 40% after
  • 40% before 49% after
  • 60% before 63% after
  • 80% before 77% after
  • 100% before 89% after

For a better understanding, consider a real example. Let's say you have 800 critical strike chance (actual 55% ), and your opponent has 300 critical strike ignore (actual 30% ). If your lethality and resilience are equal, your total critical strike chance is 25%. If your lethality is more than 4 times higher, then the probability will be already 50%, and if vice versa, then 12.5%

Critical strike chance bonuses from skills remained at a percentage. If you attack with a skill with an additional 20% Critical Strike Chance, then your actual Critical Strike Chance will be 75% (example above). And already from this value, ignoring the critical strike of the enemy will be subtracted and, in general, the final result will decrease or increase, depending on the ratio of lethality and stability. Previously, skill bonuses were calculated after the chance of a critical strike was increased or decreased by the ratio of lethality and resilience. Now they will be multiplied by the coefficient of this same ratio, as well as the usual probability of a critical strike.

So what's the bottom line? Why is all this complexity necessary? We answer.
Lethality and resilience will become more relevant, Chance, Strength and Ignore Critical Strike won't one day become useless stats, and overall survivability in PvP will increase (should at least). In addition, such changes will have a positive effect on class features and, in general, some skills.

It is likely that the new formulas will need to be improved. But we will find out only after a few days.
