Just make a sura so you wont complain about suras being OP, then youll realize it takes good gears to be OP so youll do everything to cure all your weakness when using a sura, then later on, youll realize that its the same when you use a diffrent class, you will always do everything to get stronger and people will always complain that your character is OP, but no, the character is not the reason, the reason is YOU.

I have one and access to 2 150 suras (hence how I don't level mine)

The power difference between putting god items / mvp cards on a sura and then say... a GX don't even compare.

I challenge you to use a Wanderer with godly equips and compare it to a sura with no equips & tell me if it is truly the gears that make the class op and not the class itself ^^.

Look we all know sura needs to be nerfed one way of the other instead of giving out reasons why it has to be nerfed or not talk about what has to be nerfed and why
also let's try talk about that in here http://forums.warppo...ce-sura-in-woe/

I don't think that's a reason to just give up. General history is littered with examples of things that took a long time to change but they did eventually change simply because people didn't give up on the idea.

We should at least get some kind of update from the GM's about it. Leaving the general community in the dark literally means we all have to assume they are either giving up or not even going to caring about it.

The thing I find the funniest is how the community were silenced by a false sense of security that the GM's gave them regarding this balance patch.
"Everything was gonna be better once the balance patch was put in."
People paid their subscriptions for the next 6 months while the patch got delayed and delayed over and over, and then when It finally gets here.. its a disaster.


Honestly that was the last straw for me. Not the fact that the patch was a disappointment, but that management hyped it so much when they knew it was going to be terrible, purely to suck people in for a few more months of subscriptions.

That's why I can't believe any thing they say from now on, they will just sugar coat everything to suck a few more dollars out of the hanger-ons. (I'm still a hanger-on, because I love the potential of RO - but I'll watch from the sidelines until things get better)

That's why I hold so much distrust and animosity towards the staff, both here and overseas. After so much disappointment and repeated failures, I just can't give them the benefit of the doubt anymore. They've let me down too much for me to trust a word any of them say. Nowadays whenever they're promising us better gameplay I naturally assume they're just talking out of their asses.

Sure, a wanderer with godly equip agaisnt a no equip character? wanderer win

Cmon now, its not that easy to have godly equips and thats a fact,
sura is not only the main reason here, disadvantage and advantages will always be present.. do you want to take out all the jobs and have novice characters only?? That would be balance right? I mean, if you want to nerf sura then nerf every class equal to performers.
Instead of focusing on how to defeat your oponents you cry and complain(not literaly Riatuka) here on forums and ask to nerf this nerf that under your favor. Cmon, its like your co-worker telling smack stories about you to your boss(hate those kind of person -_-)

If you cant beat them, and your lazy to go around them, then just join them.

We don't want 90% Suras in WoE. But with kRO making RETARDED balance changes, it's heading that way. The game should be more about teamwork, not just having a 1-shot skill and determining who has the fastest reflexes..... That's the -_-tiest way to play an MMORPG.

There's something wrong when it takes more than 1 class to take down a certain class. There's also something wrong when a certain class has almost no useful roles at all. *cough* Wanderer


Does anyone have a good counter to Cursed Circle yet by the way?

Pretty sure it says Volunteer next to my name, not staff.

I'll make a note on Monday to find something out. Mainly all I've been hearing is security updates coming down the pipeline as its an overdue update. But thats only because they wanted our changes and updates to nospam and a few other enhancements we did.

Video or it did not happened! A wanderer can't beat a sura because nothing works on the sura. Not because the sura is overpowered. But because no wanderer skills actually WORK in the game. 2~3 gate of hell on the speed they are spammed and the wanderer is gone. Ghostring is not a god item after all. The wanderer can win if the sura is totally naked, but if the sura is using at least eden gear, he already can win, but it's more because of the role difference. Sura is made to kill, and wanderer is made to support/disable... or at least try. Same thing as wanting to send a Shadow Chaser to kill the sura. Without Shadow Formation.

As defeating does not mean only "killing on pvp". Sometimes a heavy disable is worse than killing [pre-balance manhole anyone?]

Let's see if kRO fixes the bugs first [like DSL reduction on int, GoH/DB/CC/SD's "ignore reduction" property] then we check if the game is balanced. For me there is no problem on the sura oneshotting, they have a decent cost to do it, both to gear and to fund, but except for Gate of Hell and Cursed Circle's extreme properties, most stuff is okay.

The problem is the other classes that need the double of the cost to get equal to the sura, or some even can't reach close. Maybe that's why people like pre-renewal so much. Even the level 60 dancer had some use, unlike now that even on 150, a wanderer is useless.

Magic classes are pretty balanced...TV one shots practically everything in WoE

and...

Rangers cannot 2 shot a sura rofl...most suras have +10 and up kvm's, upgraded immune shields, 45k hp etc..

My ranger even with possibly the best set you can think of without a thanatos or SS card can do MAX 15k on that same sura in WoE...oh and btw unless you forgot AS has like a 3 second cool down. More than enough to pop a ygg or spam some whites.


With regards to sura's...Yes a nerf needs to happen. There are just too many 150 sura's in WoE atm it's getting rediculous lol

Pretty sure that a wanderer with a brynhild, asprika, 2x brisingamen and a sleipnir will die to CC/fist or CC GOH from a non god itemed sura - just the same as a wanderer without.

I mean, what is the wanderer going to do? Hope DSL works before the sura instantly snaps and CCs? Cast rainstorm and pray the sura doesn't pot? God items do NOT secure a win for any class. Half the time, they actually make the character more vunerable.

I would also like to see battle sorcs but its nerf on nerf on nerf for them sadly


I actually play a battle sorc and even though it's fun, it's really disappointing when you compare to other classes. For scholars/sages, the renewal changes buffed battle builds a lot, but then you get to sorc and it's just...you can't compare. Psychic Wave won't do enough damage to 1-shot stuff in your level range, and the cast is really long compared to other 3rd class skills. Even with foresight it's still really long.
I don't PvP though, PvM only, so I have no idea how buffing sorcs would translate to WoE.

Yes but as Heim has said repeatedly, customers are satisfied, and they are making lots of money.

I have had TONS of feedback saying players are happier than before and the changes are doing great...


Why would they change the game if they honestly believe this?

Yes I always had converters on

lol I had a +12 bloody elven bow and arrows obviously
200 total dex with foods
+12 WW suit
+9 WW mant
+9 WW boots
+12 CEB of true Sight

and I couldn't kill anyone who actually mattered for WoE...

Sure Killing other Rangers and people who don't wear a shield is easy...but players who matter are laughing at ranger damage in WoE
