"Finally a real buff!" Details and KR Reactions on the new Absolute Skills for Kunoichi and Ninja

2

※ Translator’s Note: The term “Absolute” is a temporary translation and is subject to change when the associated update goes live in the NA/EU server. The Korean word is 진(pronounced as Jin), and can be translated to Truth, Absolute, or Nature. 

 

On Nov 2nd, the "Absolute" tier for main skills has been added for the Kunoichi and Ninja. Like the previous Absolute Skills, the skills have the same base mechanism but have higher damage percentage and/or max number of hits.


As the Kunoichi and Ninja are gender counterparts of each other, they have a lot of same Absolute Skills and the Absolute Skils that have the same name will have the same skill effects as well. Some Skills will have additional skill effects like increased Attack Speed or larger AoE in the Absolute rank.


Below are the details and KR players' reactions on the new Absolute Skills for the Kunoichi and Ninja, to give you a general idea on how the skills are working. KR players commented that combats using pre-awakening weapons have become significantly easy for the two characters, and the new skills will totally worth the skill points. 

 

◆ KR Players' comments on the new Absolute Skills 


[Kunoichi]

▷ Can deal massive damage. I might be exaggerating a bit here but I don't think I need Awakening Skills anymore.

▷These skills are crazy, and so are the skill points. The skills use too many skill points. 

▷Absolute: Tendon Cutter is okay, Absolute: Shadow Stomp and Absolute: Fox Claw are very good, and Absolute: Flash Slash is extremely powerful. 

▷ What a huge buff. I'm actually afraid these might get nerfed. 

▷ I tried grinding only with non-awakening skills. There's no HP recovery and the AoE is a bit small, but I'm overall satisfied with the grinding speed. 

▷ I tried grinding only with non-awakening skills too and it was so satisfying. It was even faster than the grinding speed with Sah Chakram, although grinding speed might vary according to the spot you are grinding at. 

▷ Using both Awakening and non-awakening skills will be a better choice, to avoid cooldown. But using only the Absolute Skills is good too.  

▷ Absolute: Tendon Cutter have a shorter cooldown. (1 sec) 

▷ Fast durability loss rate, but satisfying damage. 


[Ninja]

▷ Absolute: Shadow Stomp and Absolute: Blade Spin are amazing!

▷ I love the massive damage these skills deal! I really hope they don't get nerfed.

▷ Cheers, my Ninja mains. Hype!

▷ I'm seriously short on skill points, so I'm gonna say goodbye to Sudden Decapitation.

▷ Pre-awakening skills are used more than Awakening skills in PvE now. PvP is still the same though.

▷ I can't believe I'm actually hearing Ninja mains saying the Ninja is strong.

▷ The skills still lack Forward Guard, but I really like the speediness.

▷ I'll be using pre-awakening skills as my main skills in PvE from now on. I think I'm only going to use Serpent Ascension, Katana Shower, and Murderous Intent among Awakening Skills.

▷ The Ninja always needed more damage, but now the Absolute Skills have it. AoE is kind of small, but Awakening skills can take care of that.
