    Hi! Can You tell them (Devs PA) that Sura ChaoSpree (ninja awakening skill) needs full animation's duration block, cause the skill animation so long.
    They must rework Mach Explosion (ninja awakening skill) or buff skills damage, cause its not worth the risk being killed. The rework is: to make independent animation before explosion. I mean if ninja moves after sword swing animation, there will be no explosion. And because of that 99% players dont use this skill.
    PA devs nedds to buff Ghost Step and add 0,5 sec SA on this skill after use.
    They need to add frontal block to skill "Serpent Ascension".
    And of course buff skills damage in PvP.

      There is a magical tool in the world, called calculator.

      For example:

      Skill "Seamless":

      575% * 9 hits = 5211% damage total.

      Before this patch u had 200 Attack power, 200 AP * 5211% = 10422 total damage to enemy

      After patch u will have +21 AP, ((200+21) * 5211%) - 7,8% = 10617 Total damage.

      2% total boost to damage. But if u have 100 AP there will be 10% boost to damage in PvP.

      Less AP = More boost in PvP.
