Hello, my name is Emp and this is my though about how to balance Crecentia.
1. We need to know what is Crecentia first. What so special about this class and why should a player choose this class instead of other classes?
- According to my knowledge, Crecentia is a Noel (No-elf) that use demonic power to curse their target with debuffs and bring down their foe with powerful dot skills.
- They are special because their passive called "Ignition" which double the physical atk & magic atk come from STR & INT => This lead to their OP pet damage/heal which made them become Pokemon Master at some point.
- They are special because players can choose to go full STR, full INT or hybird unlike other classes because their skill set interact with both physical & magical attack.
So it's clear about what is Crecentia and here come my suggestions. if you dont see a skill not mention below mean I think it dont need to be remake.

These bold lines are my suggestion, yep I tried to separate the STR build from the INT build but its still possible for anyone who want to go hybird build.
Some explanation :
STR build now focus on Stigma while INT build focus on dots
- Illusion Blade : This skill was useless even now so I want to make it become some kind of finish skill like Deadly Blow and Aura strike on 1 target.
- Curse Burst : Just like Illusion Blade, this skill become a finish skill for many targets at once.
- Evanesco : This skill is totally useless and it some how do not fit Crecentia's theme so I'd like to see it become a skill that work like fire bolt of Wizard for INT build.
- Bram Gush : Nothing much, just change it from magical power to physical power and make it attack around instead of front. Wave clear for STR build.
- Tempest : Decrease half damage but now become a gap-closer for STR build.
- Contigency : Now work as new ultimate skill for STR build instead of Tempest.
- Awake Darkness : Simplier and a bit stronger.
- Death Grip : Decrease damage and increase cooldown but no longer need Awake Darkness to active. Also inflict dot.
- Levicorpus : Sleep & decrease damage taken at the same time is waste of resource and kind of OP in pvp if you use it 1st on ur enemy so this is better I think!?
- I also lower some skill scale rate at lower level and increase it scale rate at higher level to avoid OP hybird build
So what you guys think?
