‘Hayato’ and ‘Kanna’ images and details about the update!
Thanks to our really good friend, Uni of Silverbullet, we have been given a tip about an article detailing the classes with a bunch of screen shots of each class. You can find the original article here : http://www.onlinegamer.jp/news/201207100001/
I’m not sure exactly what to make of these classes, but these animations are really neat. Jump inside for more!
Summary of the article :
-The content was made in Korea and developed specifically for Japan.
-The Korean team studied a lot about Japanese history and drew from drama, anime and video games related to the Sengoku Era.
-The idea of the story of the Sengoku content is a “what-if” scenario of Oda Nobunaga being a Demon King and Uesugi Kenshin being a woman.
-We will be getting free character slots for each of the classes.
-Hayato will be a warrior class with fast attacks. It seems its main focus is being swift so it will have fast movement speed, fast attacking speed, critical rate boosts, and will have stun abilities.
-Hayato will have attacks with very huge range, meaning he will specialize in mobbing situations, but he will have to rely on dodging monster attacks to survive.
-Hayato will use a brand new weapon called “Katana,” using Battoujutsu, or the “art of sword drawing,” meaning he will have his sword sheathed during normal poses, but will draw his sword to attack monsters.
-Since Hayato will feature speed as his main selling point, he will have small HP and defense compared to other warriors, to keep game balance in check.
-Some Hayato’s skill names are :
五月雨刃 (Blade of a Five-Month Rain)
神速無双 (Swiftness Unmatched)
昇竜旋 (Rising Dragon Rotation)
旋風斬 (Whirlwind Kill)
飛燕 (Flying Swallow)
-Kanna will be a Magician type class.
-Kanna will fight alongside her fox companion.
-Instead of MP, Kanna will use Spiritual Power to attack.
-Kanna’s Spiritual Power will heal naturally, rather than by means of MP potions.
-As it stands, Magicians are a pretty unpopular class, since they’re weak at bosses, so due to disgruntled opinions from players, they’ve decided to make Kanna a more boss-oriented class.
-Some of Kanna’s attacks include :
紫扇白狐 (Purple Fan, White Fox)
鬼人召喚 (Summon Demons)
狛狛桜 (Komakoma Sakura)
妖絵巻 (Picture Scroll of Calamity)
退魔流星符 (Expel Demon Falling Star Charm)
反射符 (Reflection Charm)
-The “Great Battle of Sengoku” content is modeled after Star Craft’s “Aeon of Strife” custom map. You can cooperate with your friends, or you can hire AI to tag along with you on missions.
-There is a “Reputation” system being added alongside the Sengoku updates. There will be famous people from Japanese history from which you can get quests from under their family crests. After you’ve completed each of their quests, you can fight bosses to increase your ranking with Reputation. You can only gain rank by reward items given to you through these challenges.
-Character Decks and Part Time jobs will be released.
