Combat System Changes Dossier Pt. 4

Greetings, Saviors! TOS dev team here. Today, in part 4 of our Dossier series about the ‘Plans for Combat System Changes’, we’re talking about what differences you can expect in items and hunting fields. 1. What will change about the stats of equipment items? First, here’s the chart showing how level, stats and weapons influence skill attack before and after the changes, in case you missed it. You can see from this chart that the importance of items increases by quite a bit after the changes. Now have another look at the new damage calculation formula: Your attack is going to depend on the defense of your enemy, and on your own attack-defense proportions. A character with attack 100 and defense 100, for example, deals 30 of damage (70% reduction); one with attack 200 and defense 100 will, in turn, deal 90 of damage, suffering a damage reduction of only 55%. This means that larger gaps between your attack and defense values will be more advantageous. Thinking of the two example characters above, the difference between 100 and 200 is only 2 times, but the actual damage (from 30 to 90) is 3 times different. < Regular attack damage according to attack and defense values > Your attack is composed of the following criteria: a) +0.5 per level b) +2 per STR/INT (+5 added every 10) c) Weapon attack (base stats, enhancement, transcendence, gems, options) Note that additional property damage isn’t counted in these criteria. If you consider that you can increase your attack by about 1000 through your level and STR/INT stats, the total percentage occupied by the attack of your weapon is more than 50%, reaching up to more than 70% when enhancement/transcendence/gem values are applied. This percentage can increase even more if you choose to invest in stats other than STR or INT. Skills, on the other hand, take into account the defense of your target to increase your attack only by a certain percentage, so they won’t have much effect on already-low attack values. This is especially true with high-defense enemies, which are unlikely to be visibly affected by even high attack factor skills. < Regular attack damage and skill damage on an enemy of defense 4000 > On the other hand, increasing your defense up to a higher degree can significantly improve how well you withstand regular attacks, and even skills with an attack factor of 1500% won’t make that much of a scratch. Along with the combat system changes, we’re also going to reduce the overall defense in monsters, so we expect it will be easier for players to deal decent amounts of damage not only in fields but in instanced dungeons and Earth Tower as well. After the changes, however, we do want to introduce new item-dropping field bosses with higher defense and attack, so having a certain amount of defense will continue to be important to players. 2. How will the dual stats of armor and blunt weapon items work? With the new changes, we decided to have blunt weapons offer both physical and magic attack, for the convenience of Cleric classes that require both. Enhancing, transcending or maintaining this type of weapons is going to increase both physical and magic attack values simultaneously. Armor items will also offer both physical and magic defense. Plate armor will focus on physical defense, while Cloth armor will provide higher magic defense. Leather armor will have lower physical and magic defense, instead including critical rate-increasing attributes. 3. How will item enhancement be affected by the changes? After the combat system changes, the biggest difference you can expect in terms of items is in the enhancement function, which many players currently feel doesn’t offer enough of a boost to justify its silver prices. To improve on this, we changed the price for each stage of enhancement, making it 20% to 30% lower than the current fees, and increased the efficacy of each increment. < Enhancement of a Lv. 315 rare weapon. Enhancing to stage 6, 11 or 16 are the most efficient options. > Starting from +6, the first stage at which the enhancement can fail, the increment increases, as it does every 5th stage after that (+11, +16, +21, and so on). Matching the enhancement of your item to these stages, then, becomes the most efficient option. We are also changing the maximum stage of “safe” enhancement of sub-weapons to +5, but other than that, the chances of success, potential consumption rules and anvil functions remain the same. One related difference in the field of transcendence, however, is that consuming the potential of an item will not affect the amount of Blessed Gems required in extraction penalties, so that will be one less thing for you to worry about. 4. What is going to change in the transcendence system? The overall percentage of increase you get from each stage of transcendence is going to be smaller, but with the new combat system formulas and skill factor calculations, the performance of transcendence in items is going to remain very much the same, and can even prove itself to be much more powerful than before depending on your skill combinations. One thing to keep in mind, however, is that after the changes, the higher the transcendence stage of an item, the pricier it will be to enhance it. The new transcendence system will also see the current three types of Goddess’ Blessed Gems unified into a single type of Blessed Gem, which can be returned at a rate of 90% of the corresponding successful transcendence stage, regardless of the remaining potential of the item. Blessed Gems lost in transcendence attempts failed from adding less than the required for guaranteed success will not be counted for the total of Blessed Gems returned. Here’s a sample case to help exemplify this rule: Stage 1: used 1/3 and succeeded -> 1 Blessed Gem saved Stage 2: used 2/4 and succeeded -> 2 Blessed Gems saved Stage 3: used 5/5 and succeeded -> 5 Blessed Gems saved Stage 4: used 2/6 and failed -> 0 Blessed Gems saved In the case above, the player saved a total of 8 Blessed Gems (all the Gems they used in successful attempts), so if they were to extract them, they should receive back 8 x 90% = 7.2 (rounded). That’s a total of 7 Blessed Gems, or 70 Blessed Shards. 5. What updates to expect in Hunting Grounds and Unidentified Items? If until now we were unable to introduce Lv. 270 and Lv. 315 weapons and equipment due to balance reasons, after the changes you can finally see these items dropped at the new Lv. 280-320 Hunting Grounds (entrance from Grynas Hills). These new equipment items may have relatively low numbers, but all the options you need (1 magic, 2 rare) are there. Other than these updates, playing in Hunting Grounds with a party of about 3 members is going to continue to be a good option, although solo play will be feasible as well. 6. Which items are changing to legend grade? Lolopanther (Lv. 270) and Solmiki (Lv. 330) equipment sets obtained from Earth Tower will have their current unique (red background) grade changed to legend grade (see images below). As legend items, these pieces of equipment are going to provide higher stats than the ones they currently offer. With these new combat system changes, specifically the new armor effects, we noticed more players wanting to switch their current armor for that of a different type, so we also plan to create a system that let you exchange your Lolopanther or Solmiki armor for the same items of a different type. We expect this system to allow players one single exchange per piece of armor, free of charge.

Combat System Changes Dossier Pt. 3

Greetings, Saviors! We're continuing our Dossier series about the ‘Plans for Combat System Changes’ with part 3 today. In this post, we would like to lay out some details regarding the changes that are coming to skills and the way they deal damage. 1. How will the attack factor of skills affect damage? We introduced this chart in our last Dossier post to explain how each factor affects skills before and after the combat system changes. Currently, the attack of a skill is calculated by adding the skill’s attack value to the level + stats + weapon. After the changes, however, this value is going to be calculated based on factors that increase the skill’s attack by a certain percentage. [Bash (Swordsman) Lv. 10 offers a factor of 245%.] The skill increase factor (highlighted below in red) contributes to the new damage calculation formula as such: damage = (% increase factor) x attack x min {1, log10 ((attack / (defense + 1))^0.8 + 1)} + (+ increase) Taking the Bash skill from the image above as an example, the damage provided would be the following (assuming a character of attack 1000, defense 800): Now let’s look at a case of multi-hit damage. [Multi Shot (Archer) Lv. 10 offers a factor of 81% over 10 hits.] Here’s what the damage would look like with this skill (again, assuming a build with attack 1000, defense 800): Multiple hit skills come with a lower attack factor compared to single-hit ones, but in a situation where every hit is accurate, the attack multiplying effect is higher. Boost that with some + additional damage and this type of skills can really prove themselves useful. 2. How will the attack factor vary from skill to skill? There are many types of attack skills in Tree of Savior, each with a different setting. Some skills consist of short, fast-paced hits, while others hit slowly over a longer period. Below are some of the aspects we’re considering in regards to how the different factors will be applied depending on the type of attack skill. The final factor is then determined based on the combination of the aspects above. The only exceptions that escape this rule would be tile skills, which are closely associated with their corresponding class, and skills which would end up nerfed excessively. In those cases, we adjusted the values a little so as to not make the changes too dramatic. 3. How will the attack factor apply in multi-hit skills? For many skills in Tree of Savior, their cooldown (or number of hits) and attack factor will develop simultaneously as the skill level is increased. In those skills, upping the attack factor by basing the sum in the accumulated damage would produce massive degrees of damage by Lv. 15. On the other hand, calculating the skill’s factor on a percentage based in the accumulated damage value would add up to ridiculously low factors at earlier levels. In order for these skills to develop at a more reasonable pace, we decided to either have a fixed cooldown (no. of hits or range) and let only the factor increase, or give them a set factor and allow for only the cooldown (no. of hits or range) to grow with the skill level. Multi Shot (Archer), Breaking Wheel (Inquisitor), Incineration (Plague Doctor) and Cyclone (Doppelsoeldner) are some of the skills that will be receiving this treatment, as well as any future class skills we consider worthy of it. 4. What will happen to skills with no cooldown? We have some pretty major changes planned for no-cooldown skills. The original purpose of no-cooldown skills is to allow your character to have an SP-consuming attack that is more effective that your regular attack. This works fine if the skill only offers an attack factor that is slightly higher (no need for a cooldown), but many no-cooldown skills also include added effects (bleeding, ricochet, debuffs, etc.), which according to the new factor rules leaves them with a much lower attack factor. Now, we don’t think it would be right for these skills to have an attack factor that is lower than regular attacks (100%), nor do we want to increase their SP consumption. To work around this problem, our plan is to give these skills a cooldown that is shorter than that of other 2-3 overheat attack skills, but a visibly higher attack factor than regular attacks. We believe that, in doing this, these low-cooldown skills can be used during the cooldown time of other major attack skills to create a better damage dealing cycle overall. 5. What other changes do you have planned for skills? While testing the new changes, we didn’t individually analyze the effects of every skill in every class build; instead, we simply adjusted the skill factors necessary for the changes along with the buffs and debuffs that most heavily affect them. This method, however, came with a few negative side effects. For example, having insufficient attack skills and skills where the attack/factor doesn’t match the character’s rank/circle continued to be a problem in magic attack Cleric classes (Krivis, Druid, Bokor, Sadhu, Taoist). Because of this, we decided to reduce the general degree of damage magnification obtained from combining skills. In the current version of the game, it’s not uncommon to achieve 2 or 3 times the attack of a skill; with the changes applied, however, you’ll be getting a smaller % of increase that rarely exceeds 2 times. The same will happen in cases where the skill combination can be maintained for longer durations. The main reason why we went for this approach is that, after the combat system changes, the amplification you get from the skill factors and item enhancement is much more noticeable than before. In order to maintain a more balanced environment in future updates and in the current PvP (including GvG) gameplay, we felt like we needed to be stricter about this aspect.
