    ArcheAge: Revelation Skill Patch Notes

    ArcheAge: Revelation Skill Changes & New Skills

    General Skill/Stat Changes
    • Increases and decreases to Critical Damage now display their real amounts. (Previously, this stat was displayed “as a percentage of the original 50% bonus damage.”)
    • The “Skill Cooldown” stat in your character sheet has been changed to “Attack Speed,” and its tooltip has been edited to better explain its functionality. In addition, this stat is now displayed as a total additive number, with the effective reduction shown in parenthesis next to it. (In much the same way that Defense and Magic Defense are currently displayed.)
    Battlerage

    Triple Slash
    • No longer has a chance to reset the cooldown on Charge and Behind Enemy Lines.
    • Increases threat generation +300% if used while under the effects of Toughen.
    • Shaken no longer reduces Healing Effectiveness. (This is a global change to the Shaken debuff in general.)
    Sunder Earth
    • Provokes affected enemies if used while under the effects of Toughen, forcing affected monsters and players to temporarily target the caster. (This is a global change to the way Provoke works. Players can immediately choose a new target after being Provoked, but it will forcibly change their current target to the caster when this debuff first takes effect.)
    • Earth Energy (the buff granted to allies within its AoE) now grants 30% damage reduction.
    Bondbreaker
    • Can only be used while under the effects of Snare, Slow, or Lassitude.
    • No longer breaks Bubble Trap effects.
    • No longer grants physical damage reduction.
    • Can be used during Global Cooldowns, and does not trigger a Global Cooldown.
    Frenzy
    • Effect now has a base duration of 20sec, but regains 20sec of duration each time you kill an enemy. (Max stacked duration at any given time: 30sec.)
    Tiger Strike
    • Can no longer be used while Snared.
    Behind Enemy Lines
    • Now breaks Telekinesis and Bubble Trap effects.
    • Can no longer be used while Snared.
    Attack Speed Training
    • Grants a stack of Delirium for each enemy hit by the 3<sup>rd</sup> attack of Whirlwind Slash. (Previously only granted one stack regardless of the number of enemies hit.)
    • Delirium now increases melee skill damage +2%. (No longer increases critical rate.)
    • Delirium duration increased from 5sec -> 9sec.
    Reckless Charge
    • Using Charge, Tiger Strike, or Behind Enemy lines grants the Reckless Charge buff for 4sec, decreasing received physical damage -15% and the duration of Shackle, Slow, Snare, and Impale -35%.
    • This buff no longer increases move speed.
    Archery

    Charged Bolt
    • Ranged Attack coefficient reduced from 220% -> 200%
    Piercing Shot
    • Ranged Attack coefficient reduced from 300% -> 270%
    Deadeye
    • This ability is now a 60sec buff. While the buff is active, the caster gains a flat bonus to their Ranged Attack (+80 Ranged Attack at Rank 4) when they stand still for 1 second or more. Moving cancels the attack bonus, but the Deadeye buff remains and can be activated any number of times throughout the 60sec duration.
    • No longer grants the Feral Mark buff by itself. (But can do so if augmented by the Sharpshooting passive.)
    Snare
    • New Combo: Snare gains a 30m casting range if used while under the effects of Float. (Note: The actual Snare effect is still a 5m radius AoE. It can just be cast anywhere in a 30m radius while floating.)
    Float
    • No longer grants the Feral Mark buff by itself. (But can do so if augmented by the Sharpshooting passive.)
    Boneyard
    • Interrupts the target. (Previously inflicted a very short duration Snare on the target. This change seems to resolve many of the issues where simply having a high enough move speed would allow a character to escape the Boneyard before it appeared.)
    Concussive Arrow
    • New Combo: This attack gains a 40% Defense Penetration bonus per rank of Bleeding on the target. (Note: that means +40% of your character sheet’s defense penetration per rank, up to +200% additional defense penetration.)
    Snipe
    • Snipe now requires a target to cast, inflicting its damage in an AoE line from you to that target. (Note: this resolves nearly all terrain/elevation problems with this skill, but means it can no longer be fired “blindly” through obstacles or at stealthed targets. Interestingly, it DOES allow the caster to shoot with perfect accuracy through walls and other obstacles as long as they still have their target selected.)
    • Combo changed: Snared targets are Tripped. (Previously Slept targets were Tripped.)
    Sharpshooting
    • Causes Deadeye and Float to grant Feral Mark whenever they are active. (Note: This means the entire duration of Float, but only when you are standing still during Deadeye.)
    • No longer increases the base duration of Feral Mark.
    Shadowplay

    Rapid Strike
    • Inflicts Shaken after 5 stacks. (Previously inflicted Distressed after 10 stacks.)
    • Shaken no longer reduces Healing Effectiveness. (This is a change to the Shaken debuff in general.)
    Stalker’s Mark
    • Reduces target’s Received Healing -60%. (previously -35%.)
    • Maximum stacks of Cumulative Damage increased to 1000.
    Toxic Shot
    • The Poison debuff’s coefficient with Magic Attack has been increased 100% -> 160%.
    Shadow Smite
    • Backstab damage decreased from 600% -> 400%
    • Combo changed: Inflicts 98% bonus damage if used while under the effects of stealth. (Previously dealt bonus damage to stunned targets.)
    • Combo changed: Resets Stealth cooldown if used while under the effects of Bloodthirst Explosion. (Previously reset Stealth cooldown if used while stealthed.)
    Shadow Step
    • No longer has a chance to reset cooldown on casting.
    • Cooldown reduced from 30sec -> 18sec.
    Throw Dagger
    • Added Combo: Increases range by +10m if used while under the effects of Drop Back.
    Witchcraft

    Lassitude
    • Lassitude’s pre-sleep slowing effect now properly counts as a Slow, comboing with skills like Charged Bolt and Whirlwind Slash.
    Enervate
    • Reduces target’s Healing Effectiveness -60%. (Previously -50%.)
    Bubble Trap
    • Enemies in Bubble Trap receive -50% magic damage. (RIP Bubble Meteor.)
    Play Dead
    • Now only restores health/mana if the caster is below 30% health when cast.
    • Causes enemies to temporarily lose targeting on the caster. (Enemies can still target you again after you use this ability, but they will forcibly lose targeting when you first cast it.)
    Purge
    • Grants +1600 Magic Defense at Rank 4. (Previously granted +25% Magic Defense.)
    Baleful Recharge
    • Successful attacks have a 2% chance to trigger the Baleful Recharge buff for 5sec, which restores a percentage of your maximum mana on each attack. This ability has a 12sec cooldown once triggered.
    • Each enemy you Fear using Insidious Whisper or Banshee’s Wail grants a stack of Exploitation.
    Exploitation (New stacking buff granted by Baleful Recharge)
    • Decreases the cooldown of Focal Concussion and Enervate -10% per stack.
    • Stacks up to 5 times.
    • Casting either spell consumes one stack of Exploitation.
    • While under the effects of Exploitation, both spells will deal 90% of their damage as Mana burn instead of normal damage, restoring an equal amount of mana to you.
    Sorcery

    Insulating Lens
    • Is now instant-cast. (Previous cast time: 1sec)
    • Now has a 40sec duration. (Previously unlimited duration.)

    • Combo changed: Inflicts an additional +101% damage on Cursed targets. (Previously inflicted bonus damage on Feared targets. Note: “Cursed” is the debuff enemies receive from Mirrorlight.)
    • Combo changed: Inflicts Weakness on targets under the effects of Fetter, increasing CC duration. (Previously inflicted Shaken on targets under the effects of Fetter.)
    Absorb Lifeforce
    • Cooldown reduced from 36sec -> 18sec.

    • Enemies affected by the Death’s Vengeance explosion will also explode if killed within 3sec.

    • Combo changed: Inflicts an additional +60% damage if used while under the effects of Toughen. (Previously worked with with Shrug It Off)
    • Inflicts Provoke, forcing affected monsters and players to temporarily target the caster. (This is a global change to the way Provoke works. Players can immediately choose a new target after being Provoked, but it will forcibly change their current target to the caster when this debuff first takes effect.)
    Revitalizing Cheer
    • Combo changed: Healing increases +25% if used while under the effects of Toughen. (Previously +50% if used while under the effects of Shrug It Off.)
    Redoubt
    • Removed combo with Liberation.

    Ursine Roar
    • Increases Continuous Health Regen by a small amount whenever damage is received while below 30% health. (This increase is based on your Stamina, and is subject to sharp diminishing returns.)

    Infuse
    • Restores 8-11% of max mana for up to 10 nearby allies.

    • Added combo: Consumes the Sacrifice buff to grant all affected allies Martyr’s Boon, an incredibly powerful insulating lens effect that lasts up to 5 seconds. (They’re not joking, here. It’s like 12,000-17,000 damage absorption for 5sec.)

    Abyssal Skills


    To unlock Abyssal skills

    • Scattershot: Fires a burst of shrapnel at nearby targets, hitting closer targets multiple times. Fires extra shrapnel at nearby Locked targets.
    • Bombardment: Fires a stream of fireballs at the target. Has a chance to interrupt on Critical Hits.

    • Iron Fist: Charges up to 20m towards a target and attacks them.
    • Uppercut: Launches the target into the air.
    • Leaps up to 12m and slams down on a target’s location, dealing damage in a small area. Stuns Locked targets.

    Soar

    Dive
    • Fly up to 40m towards a target, dealing damage to all enemies within a 6m radius on impact. Inflicts bonus damage on Launched enemies. Can only be used while Soaring.
    Adaptive Plating
    • Covers the ravager in blade-sharp scales, slowing move speed and reducing evasion, but also reducing received damage by -50%. Duration is doubled if cast while under 50% maximum health.
    • The caster can end this effect early by casting Scale Burst, which launches the scales forward and deals damage to all enemies in a straight line.
    Queen’s Blessing
    • Makes the ravage temporarily immortal, preventing lethal damage from killing it. But also increases received damage +25%. When Queen’s Blessing ends, you return to your normal form and are incapacitated for a short time.

    Tireless Predator
    • Queen’s Blessing significantly reduces the cooldown of Rupture and Soar.

    Received healing? It is for me. Do you mean "Live" or "PTS?"

    Am i messing something up?

    *edit* I apologize for spelling your name wrong!

    *edit2* Turns out i found the issue.. If you have a skill set saved and view those skills but don't actually activate it. It shows you rank 1 abilities. I guess stalkers mark decreases in effectiveness as it ranks up? (I learn something new everyday!)

    "Holy Bolt (Added!)
    30m ranged spell, deals Magic Damage based on Healing Power. (875 base damage, 90% coefficient, 1.5sec casting time.)
    Combo: Inflicts an additional +37% damage on Cursed Targets
    Combo: Heals allies Blessed by you (including you) as long as they are within 15m of the target when struck by Holy Bolt."

    It's called Crossroads or something I think? Frenzy has the wrong tooltip ingame. Need to add that to the bug report.

    Lol not that i can see. But it definitely raises some questions:

    http://i.imgur.com/RnFUq7Z.jpg

    I've also got a powerful curiosity about why you're showing a rank 1 stalker's mark tooltip on a rank 4 skill.

    Time to go bug QA, I suppose.

    *EDIT FROM YOUR EDIT* Oh, well that's interesting! Now all i have to do is track down whatever cell the skillsaver is calling and fix it. Thanks!

    (And no, Rank 1 is 20% on live and it goes up 5% per rank. Honestly not sure how this tooltip error was never caught, but it'll be fixed in 10 days anyway when the skill numbers change. Sorry about that!)

    I thought it would have been a little odd if it decreased effectiveness overtime. Glad it's being fixed though. Thanks!

    All forms of experience gain should increase Abyssal Skillsets. They level up just like any other skill tree =)

    Except, you know... for the questline you need to do to activate them. And the added costs to unlock certain levels. And the fact that they take no skill points to use.

    Okay they're MOSTLY like any other skill tree.

    I dunno why I bothered to look

    All I see here is mage is still the best open world pvp class and everyone will still be told to play mage.

    I also see that darkrunner is on it's way to becoming a non-viable skill tree like archery, woohoo for only 1 playable DPS class
