New Class Balance Updates
Class Updates, Potion Updates, and More
The AQWorlds Balance team has been hard at work reviewing your feedback and the in-game performance our live classes. Just released: another round of class balance updates!
This class was buffed to bring out its main traits and themes better, while preserving its main usages. Now, it classes as a mid-game to late-game solo class, and a viable high tier PvP class, with niche usages outside of it.
- Joust now has a 100% chance to stun your opponent, and also applies Off Balance, preventing stun for 12 seconds thereafter
- Thrust mana cost reduced to 10, no longer applies Off Balance
- Punctured changed to affect all damage on enemy
- Magnetized Precision cooldown reduced to 6 seconds, mana cost reduced to 10, skill now always hits and crits, damage reduced
- Auto Repair heal drastically increased, cooldown reduced to 20 seconds, mana cost reduced to 20, but now never crits
- Charge cooldown reduced to 15 seconds, mana cost reduced to 20, range increased to infinite, and now applies Prepared Strike to caster, guaranteeing your next two Jousts are critical hits
- Demoralized and Momentum duration increased to 15 seconds
- Stalwart END increase raised to 75%
- Deflection changed to -30% incoming damage
- Descriptions updated
