Loriri’s comments = Pink. Tooru.Akira’s comments = Green.

Archer revamp – Skills

All damage values are without glyphs unless specified
↑Damage values aren’t included on the actual patch note. they are added so that you don’t have spend extra time checking the said values.

New skill [Pursuit] added

Travels short distance quickly (16m, 25s cooldown)

New skill [Foresight] added effect duration: 8s

The next hit will register from the back, regardless of position
Skill has like 1.2(?)s cast time
not confirmed, they say it’s retarded long
Many have wondered and asked me via various ways, using [Foresight] then [Rain of Arrows] only results in first hit of [Rain of Arrows] as Back hit while other hits count has front hit. So don’t do this on Ghillie. Use it on Thunderbolt or Radiant Arrow instead.

Increased base damage of Thunderbolt by 100% (5355 -> 10710) 26s BV with execute lmao

Changed skill animation effect
Added noctenium effect
Consumes 2 noctenium: increase damage by 9~13%

Changed skill animation effect

Increased base damage of Penetrating Arrow by 25%(3847 -> 4808)

Changed skill animation effect

Hitting position is determined by the first hit, all subsequent hits will register the same as the first
Changed skill animation effect

Backstep will be based on directional input
Breakaway Bolt will be based on directional input
Increased base damage of Rapid Fire

Increased base damage of first hit by 3x(406 -> 1218)

Total damage(2861 -> 3914), With glyph(4291 -> 5871) Goddamn that is broken
Each hit will stack “Arrow” buff by 1

Increased casting speed of Poison Arrow (it is now as fast as just shooting auto (Arrow))

Poison Arrow can stack 3 times

Changed number of hits from Ensnaring Trap from 1 to 2

Second hit applies when skill is activated again
Second hit puts 90% movement speed reduction debuff on targets
In PVP, this effect is reduced by half (it’s 20% movement speed reduction. not sure how that’s half.)
Second cast movement speed reduction duration is 3 seconds

Changed Sniper’s Eye effect

Before: Increase damage against boss monster by 5%
After: Increased damage against monsters by 5%

Removed Eagle’s Eye (Eagle’s Eye icon is used for new Arrow buff called [Focus Preparation])
Final Salvo is renamed to Successive Shot (might not change in NA so I’ll leave it as Final Salvo)

Changed number of hits from 5 to 1
Increased Base Damage by 40% more than total sum of 5 hits (1108 -> 1551)
Changed skill animation effect

Arrow buff revamp

Arrow buff stacked from skill Arrow is renamed to Focus Preparation
Focus Preparation activated when it stacks 10 times from Arrow, Rapid Fire, and Final Salvo, increasing charging speed of all charging skills.

Damage increases table

Added/Changed Glyph effects

Berserker

When casting [Fiery Rage], both [Fiery Rage] and [Flurry of Blows] buffs are received.

(Meaning, the skills are merged.) There are issues with this though. Flurry of Blows effect was 15 seconds but after this, it was reduced to 10 seconds.

Reduced Cooldown of [Evasive Roll] by 1 Second
Increased Cooldown of [Evasive Smash] by 2 Seconds
[Thunderstrike (passive)] is added which increases chance to crit on next thunderstrike if it fails to crit

This passive only applies to PvE
According to Forum reports, this barely does anything to TS crit rate.

Glyph Changes

Longstory short: This is actually more like a nerf than a buff for Zerks, which is why I called it tweaks instead of specifying buff or nerf.
Some people find this “”simplified”” gameplay but many see this as nerf

Reaper

Increase damage against elite monsters
Increase damage against BAMs

Gunner

Increase damage against elite monsters
Increase damage against BAMs
