Is there a reason why you always include the very irrelevant and repetitive parts of the newsletters? The only interesting part of this week's newsletter is:

On a more related note, it's good to see that we're already getting more skills for Necromancer.

It's included to keep people informed as to what is happening in the game.

The Golden Giftboxes are relevant as they refer to the month of the Giftbox's releases and items within.

The 20K Z Token Package Bonus is still live which contains the Moglimus Decimus Light Booster Pet still as seen here: https://www.battleon.com/Coins

The Summer Season of Gifting Contest is ongoing until the 5th September also.


I can understand how they get repetitive but if someone is returning from a break for example or has missed last week's Newsletter it's a good way of keeping everyone informed, and the Newsletter would be more of a News paragraph if it only included one segment like the Necromancer Skills.

I really hope the use of charisma starts to contribute more than the fact you can call/summon some guests and a few of their togglable effects. Maybe it will kind of be a "Sol Neko" for undead control and make it be a must-have to optimize the class.

It kind of feels like it wants to go in some sort of direction like that, but hasn't really as of yet. It feels a bit more broad and not as focused.
Guests obviously you need charisma
A few things inflicted with charisma, but some others with INT..
Some guests SP, some MP.
End is nice to have for deathwalker
Most of the skills cost SP, and a few already cost "extra" SP. Seems counter to a "mage" build with far more SP usage than MP usage, until you get into deathwalker which is more about END stat and MP heal.

Perhaps the build it's optimized in is 250 INT/CHar/END, but we will see. Still too much SP usage for this build maybe. Essence orb usage just went way up!

But it's still only half done, and will hold judgement until it's finished..so as a result I am excited to see the finished result.

Pfft hahaha!


I am looking forward until all skills are released and then I will reset my necromancer skills, and go through the entire quest.
I did the exact same thing for the revamped paladin and I was pleasantly surprised at how great it turned out!

Is there something wrong with the daze boon? I went through 20-25 rounds for the necromancer class trying to trigger it against a boss

^If you're at max level then it's extremely unlikely you'll be able to inflict any of the Necromancer's status effects against anyone at your level, since status infliction rates scale with the armor level. Once the max-level advanced armors are released you should have a much higher chance

I can't seem to level the class armor beyond 10 for some reason. I've completed the quests through Level 13 but the new abilities don't seem to be showing up

Yikes. Currently testing this issue while passing it along to the team, please hang tight.

Edit: Skills should be working now! You may need to clear your cache.

spoiler:


Zombie Hands is back, now as Grasp Essence.

There's some nice basic combos you can do with Grasp Essence:

1. Looming/Searing/Primal Fear -> Consume Fear
2. Death Dog Bleed / Grevious Weave -> Unravel Blood.

Of course the more stacks of infliction you do the more damage the Zombies Hands will do.

Deathless Dracolich is plenty strong, and does even better damage with inflictions. Can seek between fire/dark and gives them a pretty strong burn status that stacks with itself.

Anima Atunement is our lean adjuster for this class. Curiously there's a Spellcaster lean that we cannot have for now but I remember that this was not a well-received form with Brihaldo forms so we'll have to see how that works this time around or if there will be any adjustments to make it worth using.

Mana Amplification. Not much I can say here. Pay SP for more powerful spells.

Haunting seems like its own menu of generic dark spells with Standard/Efficient/Overcharged flavors.

All in all these are some pretty nice skills. I don't really play with tons of effects but I'm sure the right players with the right equips and knowledge will best know how to utilize some of the interactions that are possible within and outside of necromancer. From Grasp Essence alone there's a ton of possible combos you can do that's already akin to a Fear/Bleed eater.

spoiler:

It also looks like Deathwalker has been updated so that you can assume Deathwalker form at will once you have enough charges, without needing to die first.


It seems that there's a minor syntax bug in the text for this, though. The SP and Charge values in the "info" popup are listed as $SP and $CHARGES, respectively.

Starting to see some potential. If the spellcaster lean is better than the implementation of others, it will really start to look nice.

Since it seems the class is optimal with END, if somewhere in the skills 16-20 if they added a backlash toggle....this is going to be EPIC.

And so we finally get some necromancer allies!

Granted, they're effectively nameless redshirts, but still...

It was very nice to get some lore behind at least one of our Deathless summons (and wow, we actually got an example of how evil necromancy could be beyond the cliched undead armies, which is pretty rare).

I also really liked some of the skill descriptions. Using the blood of your foes as a mana conduit and terrifying them to use unstable anima are both very specific and interesting applications. And Haunting empowers undead souls that already have a grudge against your target, which is a cool counterpart to Paladin magic.

Overall, a great release and I'm looking forward to the questline's finale!

Playing around with Necromancer more today.

Those who own a few Terror set items and a few bleed inflicting items, this armor is going to be extremely powerful.

Again, having a Luck-based beast mage is going to work VERY nice.

Bleed stacking can already become ridiculously powerful over 2-3 turns, and using the consume bleed skill for free to heal MP is nice. Taking advantage of gauranteed lucky strikes will make this *POWERFUL*

The same for consuming Fear and using it to heal your HP.

Now, the Lvl 17 Lean using some of the overcharged spells and using bleed and fear methods....this I can already tell will be a VERY good armor. I'm FAR more excited for the final product now.

The guests are nothing crazy special but I always love toggles for effects, so it's still a win. I prefer MP costing. And deathwalker form it looks like is like it gives you a second chance, and you'll have built-in NUkes to escape the battle. Undead assault is crazy powerful. You'll need to save SP in case you die. But we will see how the other two skills look.

Not related to any release in particular, but it seems that over the weekend there was a stealthy update to Mog Lightnaut in that its old text of "Going Away after July" is now gone, and still remains in the shop as of this post. I'm guessing this means that Mog is here to stay permanently.
