Classes

Some classes skills have been changed here on LeikaRO. All buffs, nerfs, and changes will be listed underneath. Fixes will not be listed. If no change is listed then the skill should be assumed to be working as intended. Inquire and give your suggestions about changes on the forum and IRC.


All

  • Most of skill animations were reworked to look nice and not clog the client with visuals and sounds, area skills don't replicate their animation/sound for every target hit, white "bash" effect is removed for skills where it doesn't belong.
    Skills that had no animation, now have one.
  • Variable Cast Times of most first and second job skills were drastically reduced and Fixed Cast Time portions either removed entirely or greatly reduced to represent their usage pre-Renewal. Some of the skills affected by this are Arrow Vulcan, Sharp Shooting, Magnus Exorcismus and all Wizard AoEs. This does not include signature powerhouse skills like Acid Demonstration or Asura Strike and most support skills.
  • Renewal's Base Level damage scaling applies at the end of the formula, after all other possible modifiers, this means that some skills that didn't feel good before, now scale better.
  • ASPD formula was tweaked to resemble that of iRO but with buffs having a stronger effect. In practice this means that higher ASPD values are considerably easier to achieve if you invest into it.
  • Skills that affect the whole party, no longer make anyone except the caster perform their casting motion, shouting the skill's name. They instead simply show the visual animation and play the sound. This results in smoother party gameplay without constant position lagging. Those skills are: Angelus, Gloria, Magnificat, Clementia, Canto Candidus, Praefatio, Coluceo Heal, Lauda Agnus, Lauda Ramus, Adrenaline Rush, Full Adrenaline Rush, Weapon Perfection, Over Thrust and Wind Walk.
  • Vulture's Eye and Snake's Eye had their range increasing bonues normalized to match our vision and attack range settings, those skills now grant up to 5 cells increased range at level 10.
    Bows and guns have a base range of 9 cells instead of 5.
  • Plant monsters receive 1 damage from skills, statuses or reflect effects in all cases. Multihit effects like Double Attack and Fear Breeze as well as dual wielding, still apply separate hits.
  • Third Baby Jobs have a stat cap of 120 instead of 117.

Game Mechanics

  • Plant monsters take 1 damage per tick from any status effect that deals damage.

General Skill Mechanics

  • All knockback effects move the target straight away from the attacker and not to the West like it happens to some skills under official behavior.
  • For a consistent behavior, the only skills that hit through Hiding are either naturally of Earth property or those that do so on purpose, as specified in the description.
  • Skills that make one charge the target, such as Flying Side Kick, Charge Attack, Pinpoint Attack, Dark Illusion, Knuckle Arrow, Shadow Slash, Jyumonjikiri, Stahl Horn and Tinder Breaker, move next to the target instead of on top of it and also check for walkable path in GvG.
  • Skills that can critically hit, display the critical animation upon doing so.
  • All effects that break equipment, signal it with the /omg emotion.

Equipment Bonuses

  • A large amount of equipment (especially older gear) had its bonuses improved to accomodate the changes better.

Miscellaneous
