    Very nice.Also seems like test is releasing today:



    So the transformation system was indeed reworked.All the transformation points are refunded and you can rebuild from there:

    -New transformation skill that allows you to extand the transformation time
    -Another skill wich allows you to go over the attack cap limit while your in transformation mode

    It's like fighting a spaceship! I really like the atmosphere in Dullahan's fight but some of his animations are just funny.

    Well RIP, now that we're looking to invest in maxing out 90 stuff we get a new reason not to.
    I still would be incentive to get at least a+13 lev 90 for now.I play in random parties but i do like to solo as well sometimes and having 2k up the damage limit is pretty conveniant in that sense to shorter the runs.

    Also for the ones who can reach 30k Att/Matt throught lev 90 stuff you can still go over the new bosses cap by 2000 since they seem to be at 28K.I can't tell for sure,but i would assume the optimal crit rate would be *145*?

    Regardless,there still going to be a while before we get the content ourselves.

    It all comes down to your preferance,if you feel like saving your gold for the new content that's not necessarely a bad idea too.

    This is why the game is dying, no point making any kind of work/efforst as everyone is already complaining "muh 90 is dead" like, pick your 24-25k ATT and make Dullahan a challenge maybe. But no, people will work toward 28k ATT months before, then they can quit after a week of this new episode again !

    Smart.

    Real good episode and appreciating the new gear/stuff, the weapons are the best of s3 so far, love the icy models.

    Not sure if everybody takes breaks because they reached some fixed stats thoe.There is a lot more reasons to it,new content being largely spaced out,quality of events are some of the many reasons.Poeple could presently pull 15mins+ runs on S3 bosses with 19k attack and still need to take a break at some point.

    In term of conveniance the S3 material/seal shop update that we got recently was a great idea and with some other additions there and there,things will definitely improve.I actully don't even think they have that in Korea.

    The smartest decision is probably taking the best one for yourself,i don't see how one option or the other one should be ultimately better lol.

    Also reaching these new caps with lev 90 gear inevitabely requires to have a high enhanced weapon wich is pretty fun in term of speed and other features.All comes down to what you like doing.If for example you like doing nilf and after a while you want to do them quick,there is no reason to get higher attack,ect.

    Carved Stable Shard, min 37 bal
    Carved Keen Shard, min 24 bal 36 crit
    Carved Lightweight Shard, min 24 crit and 4 ats.

    New level 95 weapon are going to use those new Carved Shards, and you can see that both Carved Stable and Carved Keen have lower Bal than current ones (37 vs 41, and 24 vs 27) but Carved Keen and Carved Lightweight have more Crit (36 vs 28, and 24 vs 19). Guess this will help reaching crit cap a lot easier, meanwhile making scrolls with Bal more important instead of just a stat you can throw away for Fast. All the more reason to use those new r6 prefixes and donning new +bal accessories for your characters. Smart move?

    Just finished watching the raid on stream, do we know if there's more to chapter 2 yet or is this the end? I theorized that we'd be fighting Balor as the final boss of it because of the weird eye things that appear all over the dungeons, but this raid got intense like Cromm's fight towards the end! Went from laughing at the Gundam animations and basketball minigame to just being in awe at how cool it ended up being.

    That's exaclty what i was looking at.The new accessories seems to be giving 4 balance only and 1 crit.I'd still keep my lev 80 rings with The Dead in the beggining for sure.Maybe they will add good enchant for them as well who knows.

    Only thing i wished they kept is specific type of gear for specific type of characters.They definitely should spread the mats throught the different maps as well to give an incentive to farm an area over another.

    Will see how the scrolls developp but for the prefix displayed it seem pretty similar to Immoral so id rather sell it if i get one personally.

    If I could, I would try to put The Dead on those new jewelries. That would help the Bal issue tremendously, unless they have plan to release r6 ES with even more bal/speed/crit for them. We have to wait until they reveal the full line of r6 ES though.

    The new accessories have bal as a positive stat on them, so they will be easy to infuse like Eochaid earrings, kitty brooches, Erg Core Brooches, etc.

    Really not liking the direction this new director is taking. New accessories are fine because we are long overdue for them, but it's too early for new armor and weapons especially after only one year and at the 95 cap. He's practically making lv90 gear obsolete with these 105 crit resist 18k def bosses. Good luck hitting 155 crit (170 for Lanns) with lv90 gear and 28k att (really only possible with +15 90 and light/ cloth armor).

    The vanity changes are very nice though.

    Will have to gather all the information,new scrolls available ect.You can currently do very well in S3 even without 130 crit(personally have 113) as long as you have decent other stats to make up for it.Around 140 crit is definitely reachable as of right now and the armor and weapon rank 6 scrolls might bring more crit possibilty.You usually dont crit cap a new chapter on the 1st days anyway wich is fair.

    They will also drop rank 6 scrolls in Season 3 so you still can run these ect.

    Lann's crit cap is also relatively difficult to reach as of right now(145).


    In overall,im pretty sure that a well upgraded lev 90 weapon will still do it.I can only assume that the higher rolls of balance shards will be a little difficult to get at first and id rather have capped balance if i still want to run lower level content.
