Lost Ark’s Wardancer recently received numerous skill changes, however, they have only been implemented on the Korean PTR servers.
Lost Ark has easy-to-learn features with unexpected depth and room for customization. Players can create and control a fictional hero to explore the vast open world of Arkesia.
During the character creation phase, you have to select a class, which will determine your abilities and skills.
Currently, there are 6 unique classes that you can choose from in Lost Ark, one of which is the Wardancer. Not merely masters of martial arts, Wardancers augment their lightning-quick fighting skills with elemental power.
As a Wardancer, you can store up elemental energy to unleash devastating attacks and gravity-defying maneuvers.
Since Lost Ark was initially released in South Korea, the game’s developers, Smilegate, regularly releases new content and updates on the Korean servers first.
Smilegate recently announced that some adjustments will be made to the Wardancer’s skill and ability set.
According to the announcement, the Seismic Strike skill will be removed from Lost Ark and replaced with a new skill, Whirlwind Yongryukak.
Furthermore, Esoteric Skill: Lightning Strike will be replaced with Supremacy Fist.
In addition to these changes, most of the Wardancer’s skills were updated. Sky Shattering Blow’s ascension Kick tripod changed to Weakness Exposure.
This skill was always able to send foes into the air with the 2nd strike, but it is now changed. The skill will now decrease enemy Crit Resistance to attacks by all party members by 10% when the enemy is attacked.
The Ready Attack Tripod has also been adjusted, but it can still increase your attack power.
The percentages by which it increases your attack power has increased. Instead of a 15% increase, you will now benefit from 20%.
Additional skill changes
In addition to the changes mentioned above, the following changes were made to the Wardancer:
|Flash Heat Fang||
|Moon Flash Kick||
|Sweeping Hidden Dragon||
|Roar of Courage||
Smilegate introduced Tripod changes for the Wardancer, which are:
|Sweeping Kick (Light of Justice Tripod changes)||
|Esoteric Skill: Spiral Impact ( Absorption Hit Tripod changes)||
|Esoteric Skill: Rising Fire Dragon (Tenacity Tripod changes)||
How to experience the adjustments
Because Smilegate releases new content and updates on the Korean servers before releasing the new content on the global servers, you need to play on the Korean servers in order to experience the Wardancer adjustments.
Keep in mind that these adjustments were only released on the PTR Korean servers though, which means that not all Lost Ark players can experience it. You have to log onto a PTR Korean server to experiment with these adjustments.
When will the adjustments be released globally?
The Wardancer adjustments were only released recently on the KR PTR server, which means that the developers are currently still testing how the Wardancer performs after the adjustments were made.
We believe that the developers will only release the adjustments on the Korean servers if they are happy with how the class performed on the PTR.
That being said, it may be a couple of months before Smilegate releases the adjustments to the global servers.
At the time of writing, it is unknown when the Wardancer adjustments will be implemented on the global servers.
