Hello friends,

An update brought to you by Senior Game Master - DORAEMON.

The update fix for ancient options is as follows:

BK / BM Ancient Sets
In connection with the issue of Obscure + Berserker combination being an overpowered mix which has 55% (Increase defensive skill when using shield weapons) combined, We came up with a solution to balance the value of all set that contains the said option, to avoid overpowered defense on all possible mixes in the future.
Adjusted only the value of indicated ancient options of the following Ancients Sets:
  • Warrior to Increase defensive skill when using shield weapons 15%
  • Obscure to Increase defensive skill when using shield weapons 20%
  • Hyperion to Increase defensive skill when using shield weapons 15%
  • Mist to Increase defensive skill when using shield weapons 10%
  • Eplete to Increase defensive skill when using shield weapons 15%
  • Berserker to Increase defensive skill when using shield weapons 10%
  • Garuda to Increase defensive skill when using shield weapons 10%
  • Cloud to Increase defensive skill when using shield weapons 15%
  • Kronos to Increase defensive skill when using shield weapons 10%
  • Saturn to Increase defensive skill when using shield weapons 10%


Results / Computation after Adjustments:
We adjusted only the Tier-1 Sets that has the (Increase Defensive Skill using shield weapons) based on the InfinityMU Wiki page.

Total Ignore Def: 55% (Overpowered)
Total Defensive Skill using Shielded Weapons: 30% (
Cloud 15%, Eplete 15%) + High Shield due to Eplete Shield
Solution Applied:
-Eplete now unlocks the ancient options by wearing 4 parts including IgnoreDef. (Helm, Armor, Shield, Pendant of Lightning )
-Hence, Since 4 parts Eplete cannot use Arthur Set and 2 Handed Weapons any more, We boosted up Eplete so it will not left behind with other T1 set.

Increases Critical Damage Rate 60%
Increases Excellent Damage Rate 60%

Double Damage Rate 80%
Decreases opponent’s defense rating +40%
Increases Skill Attacking Rate +375
Increase Wizardry Dmg +30%

Fixes Applied:

Solution applied:
Boosted
Rave Set for +15% Double Damage to make it 75% Double Damage in total while using Arthur + Kantata + Rave

Upcoming Updates:
1. Mist + Hyperion + Arthur + Ares/Sacred Set

Hi boss. Quick question 3 Berserker parts unlock full ancient opt right? I tried it just now and I checked Advance stats. Unfortunately DD shows 0%, Ign def rate 0%. But when I tried to wear Berserker 4 parts it unlocked all the options . So sadly I can't mix it up on 4 parts eplete.

You said "fix", means its broken.
What to fix for BD? 🤔
Kindly please elaborate the issues/problems you mean for BD, so we can address the issue you talking about.
the set has nothing of dmg I mean it is very difficult to kill with that set when previously it was one of the best sets it was occupied by many people served the semi set but now I see that neither semi nor uber are useful

I believe that this balance comes to repair problems that did not exist. I found the "system" of combinations fun. Now = pure skin ...? We will have to accept it and especially thank those who have been so interested in this. Thanks, I guess. You could also have raised the idea of making the number of useless sets they have in the system "playable": see how S4 sets, BlaAaAack editioOoOon sets, etc ... even if you are lucky to be able to win at least 1 time (+ 5% triple damage rate wft xd)

Ultimately
they limited the possibility of investing their money in possible combinations or alternatives. The way now is to buy 1 T2 and only that. I spent hours researching possible combinations to (as they would say) "Breaking the game" unlocking more stats and even spending my money with the malice of winning and being the best. XD
Now there are fewer things to do, the user has less chance of breaking his head.
I assumed they needed honest opinions,
I will also accept their moral criticism.
Congratulations on your balance and thank you from the bottom of my wallet.

the change was made to create fair pvp for everyone.
The fact that you could use these overpowerd mixes was fault in set design which took time to discover and fix, former game masters already dealt with some of the sets before and we are here continue thier work, so this isn't something new. We want to give players the most fair gameplay possible, therefore we canno't allow this to exist. Im sorry you had to spend hours to find them.

Hi Doraemon

Just want to ask regarding this one. Does it mean other T1 uber like Uber Hyon and Vic can play with Atlas? 25+25 vs 50vd / T1+T1 VS T2? are now balanced with each other?
because way way back before T1 is having hard time dealing with T2 uber set.

Thank you
