Character classes

General

  • Specialties of all existing classes have been revised.
  • Already distributed Specialty or Ability points will be refunded to all existing characters.
  • All classes now have 5 Active and 5 Active Specialties. The Passives evolve over 20 levels while Active evolve over 10 levels. As a result, the costs and effects of all class Specialties have been revised in order to correspond with this new formula.

 

Cra

Active Specialties modified:

  • Disengage: Allows the Cra to escape from a tackle zone by pushing back its target and jumping backwards. This spell also gives one extra MP.
  • Bat’s Eye: Allows the Cra to reduce their enemy’s range and increase their Critical Failure rate.
  • Disturbing Arrow: The Cra fires a blunted arrow that doesn’t cause damage but instead decreases the target’s resistance (via Disturbed state).

 

Active Specialties modified:

  • Precision: Spell has been removed.
  • On Your Guard: Spell has been removed.
  • Mechanism: The Cra improves his knowledge of beacons. He can set more beacons at once, and the beacons are more resistant.
  • Improved Vision: Allows the Cra to increase spell range and chance of inflicting a Critical Hit.
  • Surprise arrow: A Cra’s arrows deal more damage if he goes unseen by his enemies at the beginning of his turn.
  • Powerful Shooting: The Cra inflicts greater damage when he is not in contact with an enemy.
  • The piercing arrow now rebounds on multi-cell monsters.
  • Cell signs where the Disengage spell can be cast on have been made clearer.

 

Ecaflip

Active Specialties modified:

  • Meowtbreak: Spell has been removed.
  • Double or Quits: The Ecaflip plays all or nothing! Either he doubles the last Earth damage he did, or heals his target. He can try again as long as he has inflicted damage.
  • Feline Leap: The Ecaflip utilizes his feline talents to jump on a nearby cell and move more easily. He is thus better prepared for the attack and wins an Air damage bonus.
  • Black Bow Meow: The Ecaflip calls his feline friends for help and summons a stubborn Black Bow Meow which in turn will attack both enemies and allies.
  • Rabies: Have you ever seen a rabid Bow Meow? The cost of the Ecaflip’s Air spells are reduced by 1 AP and Air damage is increased as well.
  • Cat Tree: The Ecaflip plays Bow Meow and mouse! He has a 50/50 chance of dodging attacks and healing himself, or doubling the damage he is about to suffer.

 

Active Specialties modified:

  • Sixth Sense: Spell has been removed.
  • Critical Hits Control: Better than a Wabbit’s paw, the Ecaflip sends up a few prayers to his god, improving his luck.
  • Flealine Army: The Ecaflip’s fleas are perfectly trained; they steal more HP and can be applied with Earth and Air spells.
  • Fleahopper: Now steals health points instead of inflicting damage.
  • Fleabag: Now steals health points instead of inflicting damage.
  • Fleeches: Now steals health points instead of inflicting damage.

 

Eniripsa

Active Specialties modified:

  • Transcendance: The Eniripsa manages to “de-phase,” which allows the Eniripsa to avoid being the target of a spell. He is also healed and benefits from a healing bonus for the rest of the turn.
  • Regeneration: This spell applies the Regeneration state, which gives life back to its target but goes away if he inflicts or suffers damage.
  • Eniraser: The Eniripsa removes all the target’s effects and states, and transfers part of his HP to them as well.

 

Active Specialties modified:

  • Absorption: The Eniripsa is able to transform part of the damage he suffers into heals. Any adjacent ally also benefits from this power.
  • Massacuring Mark (replaces Explosive Mark): The targeted monster will inflict damage on the enemies around him when he dies and will generate heals for the Eniripsa’s allies.
  • Heal Drain: When an ally or enemy is healed by an effect which is not cast by the Eniripsa, the latter receives a percentage of the health points that were given back.
  • Coney summon improved.
  • Invigorating Word correctly decreases a Sacrier’s Angrrr.

 

Iop

Active Specialties modified:

  • Bravery Standard

 

Active Specialties modified:

  • Show Off: For an Iop, a battle is also a show in which he is the star! He won’t just sit back and let you steal the limelight now…

 

Xelor

Active Specialties modified:

  • Sinistro: Spell has been removed.

 

Active Specialties modified:

  • Rollback: The timeline can sometimes curve under the effect of a Xelor’s spell. As a result, any energy spent will be returned to him as if nothing had ever happened.

 

Enutrof

  • Enutrof’s Blessing spell has been improved.
