Kanna information has been released!

Today, Nexon Japan’s teaser page for the Sengoku Era updates has been updated. It reveals some information about Kanna as well as information about her skills, including a few images showing how each skills are used. I shall detail them here.


 
 

綾小路・神那 (Ayanokouji・Kanna) is one of the “Children of the Five Stars” who carry the fate of defeating Oda Nobunaga. Kanna is an “Omyouji,” or a Diviner, who will use demons as puppets to attack her enemies, alongside her trusty companion, Haku, the fox demon. She will be a gender locked class and instead of Mana, Kanna will use a special source of power called 霊力, or “Spiritual Power.”
 
 
Official Kanna PV :

 
 
 
Some of her skills include :
 
 

Beginner

 
 
Gogyou no Kago : Kanna will receive the divine protection of Gogyou.
 
 
Yuen no Reisui : Kanna will use this to recover her spiritual power infinitely and allow her to excel in Diviner techniques.
 
 
Shisen Denju : Kanna’s damage will increase, using the power of Gogyou.
 
 
Shisen Byakko : Kanna will unleash all of Haku’s power to eliminate all visible targets.

 
 
Haku : This is Kanna’s trusty companion, Haku. Haku will always be by Kanna’s side throughout their adventures!
 
 
 

First Job Advancement

 
 
Shisen Gyouha : Kanna will attack enemies in front of her using the power of Shikigami. This attack does not use spiritual power.

 
 
Chikou Yore : Using the help of a young demon, Kanna will draw her enemies close to her.

 
 
Chimyaku Teni : Using this technique, Kanna can move in all directions instantaneously. In addition, when Kanna uses this skill near enemies, she will inflict damage and stun status on the targets.

 
 
Onmyoudou : Focusing the power of the body, Kanna will make her own body much stronger.
 
 
 

Second Job Advancement

 
 
Naho Chikou Yore : Using a bigger demon, Kanna can draw in enemies from a greater distance.

 
 
Shikigami Enbu : Kanna will move at great speeds using Omyoujutsu and will leave behind a paper Shikigami where she stood. The targets near the paper Shikigami will have their speed and accuracy reduced and the Shikigami will explode after 5 seconds.

 
 
Enhou Haku : For a time, Haku will morph into the shape of a Human and help out Kanna.
 
 
Kujaku Biraki : Using Spiritual Power, Kanna can increase her fan’s attacking speed by an increment of 2 for a duration of time.

 
 
Shisen Gyouha – En : Borrowing the power of the god of fire, Kagutsuchi, the strength of Shisen Gyouha will be upgraded and Shisen Gyouha will be imbued with the power of fire, engulfing the enemy with flames on the third hit.

 
 
Onmi Shoumetsu : When an enemy dies, its Spiritual Power will explode and cause damage to surrounding targets.

 
 
Youun Shoukan : Kanna will write out a Diviner charm to cause damage to enemies and an ominous cloud will form at the target’s location. The cloud will continue to deal damage to the enemy.
 
 
 

Third Job Advancement

 
 
Sou Tengu : The two Tengu twins will be summoned to attack targets to the left and right of Kanna.

 
 
Soko e Naore : With the help of a demon, Kanna can push many targets to one spot from both sides.

 
 
Shugyoku no Juin : Each time Kanna attacks, part of the enemy’s spirit will come out. When this skill is used, that amassed spirit will explode and cause damage to the enemy. This will hit up to 10 times on regular targets and up to 15 times against bosses.

 
 
Kishin Shoukan : Kanna will summon the earthbound spirits of Hana and Yuki. These earthbound spirits will trade orbs among each other, dealing damage to any monsters in their path. In addition, there will be gloom surrounding the map these spirits are summoned in and the rate at which monsters spawn will be increased.

 
 
Kekkai Sakura : Kanna will create a powerful Sakura barrier that will protect herself and her group members.

 
 
Shisen Gyouha – Rei : Borrowing the power of the water god, Takemi Nakata, Shisen Gyouha will be imbued with the power of water and the third attack will freeze Kanna’s targets.

 
 
Kyuusei Tenki : When an enemy dies, Kanna’s health will be recovered.
 
 
Futsuma Tenki : Kanna’s Magic Attack power as well as her Critical Rate will be permanently increased.
 
 
Sunakake Baba : Kanna will depend on a Sand Woman to rapidly attack targets within the area and the targets will all melt. During the period in which Kanna depends on the Sand Woman, only Kanna’s basic attacks can be used.
 
 
 

Fourth Job Advancement

 
 
Haja Rengekifu : Enemies in front of Kanna will be shot at with charms at a fast speed. When you hold down the skill key, the charms will be continuously fired at the enemy.

 
 
You Emaki Kanna will summon Orochi and will attack up to 15 monsters with powerful attacks.

 
 
Koma Koma Sakura : A sakura tree will be summoned on monsters in front of Kanna. The enemies near it will take massive damage and all party members will have their HP recovered.
 
 
Shoujou Kashu : When Kanna attacks targets, at a set rate, a heavy drinking demon will appear and throw wine barrels at the targets. All targets in the way of the wine barrel will receive damage. Kanna can receive additional experience when this skill is activated.

 
 
Taima Ryuuseifu : Enemies in front of Kanna, for a moment, will be caught under the control of a vengeful spirit and will not be able to squirm about.

 
 
Kekkai Kikyou : Kanna can create a Kikyou barrier that will increase the power of her and her party members at bosses.

 
 
Shisen Gyouha – Retsu : Borrowing the power of the god of lightning, Takemi Kazuchi, Kanna’s Shisen Gyouha attack will be imbued with the power of lightning, allowing the third attack to deal extra damage along with an added knock-back effect.

 
 
Kasen : Kanna’s weapon mastery over her fan will be increased, along with her magic attack power.
 
 
Gensei Haku : When Haku transforms into Human shape, its abilities will be greatly increased.
 
 
 
 

That’s it for now! This class seems pretty exciting! It seems like its attacking system will work like Demon Slayer, from what I can tell. I can’t wait to get my hands on this class. Kanna will be released on August 16th, next Thursday, along with the Ranmaru Expedition. Be sure to stop by and play if you can!
 
 

Thanks to Aim of Southperry.net for helping with the skill names.

    This probably the first Mage class i actually like. I assume 視線仰波。 烈 Is her bossing move?

      haja rengekifu seems like it’d be her bossing skill, depends on how fast it is I suppose.

    Spelled the name wrong, But yea.i:m still sad that You Emaki has 5 heads only.

  3. August 8, 2012 at 2:44 pm

    hmm….
    not sure if i like this mage….
    ill have to try it out to see…

    • August 8, 2012 at 2:46 pm

      she seems quite slow and i have a feeling she’ll be awkward to use,,,

  4. August 8, 2012 at 2:49 pm

    Looks so cool. I like how you can transform your pet thing Haku in a human and he will help you fiight. It’s like having a movable turret =D COOL!!!🙂
    I think that the skill where you summon 2 earthbound spirits that will throw orbs at each other and will increase the spawn rate will work like Mechanic’s shock thing, where you can assign 2 spots on the map and that is where they will spawn and throw orbs from.

    >great new class
    >same butthurt rage at it never being released in any other version

      It hasn’t even been released in JMS how do you know it wont ever be released in the other versions considering how original and unique these characters are unlike the so called “exclusive” classes in the other versions?

        If Perry the Commodore has taught us anything about Japan’s opinion of us western barbarians, it’s that their cooperation only comes after a vigorous ravaging of their country. In Japan, DEFEAT MEANS FRIENDSHIP! So before Nexon Japan allows other versions to enjoy their exclusive classes, other versions must first earn the right through trial by combat.

        We must place all our hopes upon the shoulders of Chuck Norris, so that he may grace us with victory and the spoils that go along with it.

    Some of the images for the Hayato preview were sped up tenfold, so you can’t really use this as a determinate on how fast/slow the class will be overall. Gonna have to wait for it to be released to know one way or the other.

    Something about purple skill animations always makes me sparkly eyed..
    Anyway, I wasn’t expecting a demon tamer. I’m interested to see how she’ll play in-game.

    This class looks like the first mage I’ll like. darn it, why can’t hayato and kanna come to gms. 😦 a few of its skills looks like hyper skills. Korea should make classes more like the japanese haha..theyr so good at making awesome attacks in all games..

    • mithi9
      August 9, 2012 at 6:31 am

      Ummmm Korea made these classes
      -____-
      Just not the same team that does kms’s stuff
      But Korea all the same

        I am pretty sure Japanese made these class cause if you say that Koreans made Japanese EXCLUSIVE then that means they also made the China EXCLUSIVE as well as America EXCLUSIVE. And the Japanese one is significantly different compared to both America and China. Also they only received one new class but Japan got two. Dragon Warrior, and Jett, is completely the same except for their animation but the JMS one is completely different.-________- Also if your right about Koreans making this class with groups wouldn’t there going to be similarities between the jett. Dragon Warrior, and Kanna, Hayato? Yeah Jett is like a copy of Dragon Warrior but Hayato and Kanna is a whole different thing. I believe that your just misunderstood. Well whatever,

        OT: Looks excellent class. Japanese people is so creative and knows what an exclusive needs to consist of!

  12. August 9, 2012 at 6:54 am

    This reminds me of Touhou, so much

    No, he’s right Nexon Korea researched about the Sengoku Period and made this class for them. Don’t you read up on these things?😛 I’m not sure about Jett, but I know in every other case all content for maplestory comes from Nexon Korea, albeit some tweaks and addtions (like Capture the Flag in GMS).

    They did but a DIFFERENT Nexon Korea team made the JMS exclusive content. All the development teams are based on Korea, however each version has it’s own Korean development team, it’s not the same guys who do KMS’s content.
