0

 

A major update for MXM, patch 1.3, went live on September 13th. This patch includes the new Master, Titus, and new PvE mode, Natium Defense Line, as well as overheat changes for all Masters, balance changes, and a game economy change.


First, Titus, a Support Master, will be added to MXM. Titus is a Master with several AoE skills that can heal and buff allies. This new Master can support allies with his high tanking ability, although he cannot deal much damage.


Titus can boost his allies’ abilities during teamfights, or hinder enemies. His Mending Palm and Purifying Edict skills will instantly heal a friendly target, and Nura’s Grace and Hallowed Ground can affect both allies and enemies within its AoE.


Notably, his ult, Divine Intervention, can revive dead allies within the area, which can turn a game around if used at the right moment.

 

▲ Titus, an entirely supportive Master.

 

Natium Defense Line, the new PvE mode, has been added to the server as well. Natium Defense Line is a ranked game content in PvE mode, so players must be over level 35 and have a minimum of 10 Masters. As it is ranked, a new season starts every month, and rankings and rewards are given out based on the scores players get in Natium Defense Line.


The main goal of Natium Defense Line mode is to defend the Natium core from 30 enemy waves. This mode can only be played with Nightmare difficulty, and players must defend the core using all the resources they can get while using different strategies for each unique enemy that comes swarming in.

 

▲ Players must find the most efficient method to eliminate monsters that come swarming from all directions.
▲ Playing Masters with AoE or Cc skills is highly recommended in this mode.

 

There is one major change on Master balance that is quite notable; the majority of Masters (exception to Poharan, Taejin, Vonak, and Lorraine) will have overheat removed from their basic attacks, and deal less damage with their weapon attacks. Overheat-related traits have been replaced with new ones for Weapon Upgrades, Nodes, etc.


There has been changes made to the game economy as well. As we were told before, the SOL needed to play the Nightmare difficulty for PvE modes has been changed to 3,000 golds. Also, the amount of free X-Coins that can be gained from missions and quests has been reduced. Not only that, the SOL needed to unlock the Masters has been increased, although Masters that need items from Time Space Distortion to be unlocked, like Poharan and Kromede, have their unlock conditions removed.


Aside from that, the patch includes another Master added to the free rotation, improvement on Master Yuri’s illustration and modeling, and the weekly events for September. Further details on the patch 1.3 can be found in the patch notes below.

 

▲ Most Masters got Overheat removed and a new trait added to their Weapon Augment.
▲ Yuri’s illustration and in-game modeling, as well as her VO, have been changed.
▲ Most Masters got their unlock conditions removed, instead, the price of SOL increased.
