Well.... as we are now with this new update, the x-spam was heavely nerfed.. .is intended that our mage class must use all of their skill tree to play now.
But most of them don´t work in the way that they supose to be for example:
-The skill Fortress: is a magician skill that shot in a straight line and don´t have an Aoe damage the skill say that will hit in lvl 10 a total of 14 enemies but rarely hit like 2 or 5 even if they are in the lightning magnet .
-The Skill Rain of Fire: has almost the same issue as the fortress skill some hits do not connect properly .
-The skill Detection don´t do the magic reducction as its should be at lvl 5 100% of it .
-the skill Chain lightning: was super nerf as is considerated an X-spam skill but also monsters that they don´t are X resistance have full reducction too making the skill worthless .
there is also some others skills that don´t do what they supose to do for example:
-Staff Mastery: as only give base damage 35% of magic atack barely goes up 200 magic attack base (a joke actually) compared with others skill that gives Final magic/phys attack percentual % for example (Nation Fury) Summoner or (Claw Mastery) Jester those gives a very good amount also with this new feature enemies will still reduce damage by their new system.
-Blessing: same fate as Staff Mastery .
I hope the GM staff do something about it as they intended that we don´t rely on X-spam, they should give us that all skills work properly .
