You will also find a ton member and non-member Seasonal Items returning to earn while the Yokai New Year event lasts! Happy New Year!
Class Buffs: Chunin + Artifact Hunter
This week, we wrapped up our February birthday class buffs with Chunin and Artifact Hunter.
Chunin Changes: To increase its viability, we wanted to address two things that you all wanted to see change: its heal (or lack thereof) and the self-stun on Chi Blast.
New Auto Attack default Auto Attack is now a unique auto attack called Chi Strike (has a chance to apply a small heal over time effect + attacks two monsters)
Chi Blast Changes removed the self-stun effect and increased Chi Blastís damage
Monster Target Changes all of Chuninís skills now target only two monsters (to prevent drawing more aggro than you can manage)
When coupled with its already impressive damage mitigation, the Chi Strike auto attack gives Chunin the sustainability it needs to farm without taking rest breaks or relying on a healer. And by targeting two close range monsters, you further increase the amount of damage you can deal to both targets.
Because most Chunin users would almost never trade Chi Blast's high damage for its self-stun, we removed the self-stun effect, and to ensure itís on par with newer classes, its damage was buffed.
Artifact Hunter Changes: To address its mana issues, its second skill will now always result in a critical hit.
Last Chance for Nulgath Birthday Gear
We celebrated Nulgath the ArchFiendís birthday celebration last month, and it's almost time for his birthday shop to leave for the year. Find the Void Rebirth and Void Awakening sets in your game menu until next Friday, February 15th.
And don't miss your chance to get the color-custom version. Once the shop leaves, it will NEVER be available again!

New Doom Set: Yokai Senshi
Available in the Wheel of Doom and Merge shop!
The Wheel of Doom spins round and round... and this week, as we celebrate the new year in Yokai Isle (and China celebrates its lunar new year) we've got an all-new, party-ready set for you -- the Yokai Senshi!
New Gear from the Wheel of Doom!
We know a lot of you are raring to redeem your free spins... so we're adding a full new Epic rarity set for you, crafted by AQW Community Artist, Bido! Each of the Yokai Senshi set pieces will be available from the Wheel of Doom and from the Doom merge shop. This set will return each year during the event.
Pieces of the set include:
Yokai Senshi armor
Yokai Kabuto Mask
Yokai Kabuto Helmet
Senshi's Guard cape
Kogane no Yumi
Kogane no Yari
Kogane no Katana
Kogane no Ha
Dual Kogane no Ha
All our seasonal Winter Wheel of Doom gear - including the Yokai Senshi set - will leave leave Wednesday, March 20th, the first day of Spring. This gear will return next year during the Winter months.
Get your Free Spins
Everyone loves to get prizes... and that's why we brought back back free spins for the Wheel of Doom!
Members get one free spin a day while their upgrade is active
All players get one free spin a week.
See the Free Spins Design Notes for more details.
Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness
We've gotten a lot of really positive feedback after introducing the free spins... but also a lot of you who wanted 1) a way to make sure you got an Item of Donated Awesomeness and 2) kept spinning in a quest to get the Epic Item of Donated Awesomeness to drop from the Wheel... and then not didn't get it.
That's why, earlier this month, we introduced the Platinum Item of Donated Awesomeness. This item is available from the Doom Merge Shop, so even if you don't receive the EIoDA as a bonus prize, you can save up your Treasure Potions and get the PIoDA.
The PIoDA will be a Wheel of Doom merge shop exclusive.
Cost: 1,000 Treasure Potions.
You can get both the EIoDA (from the Wheel) and the PIoDA (from the merge shop)
The PIoDA currently stacks up to x5. We are looking at ways to increase this by popular demand.
At a cost of 1,000 Treasure Potions, that means a member who ONLY uses their one free spin per day/week will need to log in every day for about 2.5 years to get it... but they WILL get it eventually.
* Exceptions include staff personal items, custom weapon contest prizes, HeroMart items, etc
Here be the DNs for tonight's release~
