▲ I get 14 failstacks and the weapon is destroyed.

Favorite function has been added to the Integrated Marketplace.

When purchasing/selling items in the Integrated Marketplace, you can pre-order items at the standard price.

The pre-order price cannot go over the maximum price and cannot go below the minimum price of the item.


[New Updates - Characters]

You can now use Black Spirit’s Rage to block enemy’s HP recovery.
  -  You can “wound” the opponent with Black Spirit’s Rage skills.
  -  A certain percentage of Black Spirit skill damage will be inflicted as a “wound”.
  -  The “wound” will decrease the maximum amount of HP that can be recovered.
  -  The “wound” will be recovered by 10 per 5 seconds.
  -  Damage over time and additional damage based on HP or MP % will not inflict Wound.
  -  Wound will be refreshed when the character dies.
  -  Would will not be healed when the character is not logged in. Would will start to heal from the moment character loading starts.

For example, if a Warrior uses Spinning Slash with 100% Black Spirit’s Rage to attack a Berserker with 5000 HP and the Berserker took 2000 damage, the Berserker will take 1000 Wound, which is 50% of the damage. The Berserker will be able to recover his HP up to 4000 using HP potions.

    why all the hate towards kuno? Do the devs of this game even play it? Its nowhere near as op as ninja but she gets the same nerfs.

    How do they decide on balance issues ? Clearly Na/Eu has no voice ,do the korean playerbase ask for kuno nerfs ?

    I'd like to see them buff other classes to balance instead of nerfing classes to uselessness . these devs could take some pointers from the ncsoft dev team they did much better at balancing classes in Aion.
