  3. My initial thouught was: "so finally I will see some New M.Mage subclass action".
    Then I read again and WTF? Creator? I can undestand Chaos because she can be balanced, but creator is allowed? New Creator meta is comming boys.

    Great convenience changes. This will also bring back the element of fair arena everybody loved. We should be very skeptical with balancing issues with chaos/creator, but any class new to the arena is inherently overpowered because nobody knows how to play them. Balance should come with time.

    Will the quest from Siziki's Dojo give 2 additional TP for PvE (for a total of 38)...will it apply in PvP?

    So free lv85 chars huh. Is the no merc/Explorer thing perma or only lasts as long as they are an arena only char and gets removed once converted to normal char?

    I'd assume the latter and hope it is but would like clarification

    From what i gather the dojo mode is quasi-PvP (more like PvAPC), not real PvP so it'd be acceptable to have such classes there.

    That'd get PvEers to touch the arena in some sense.

    So when are they allowing 60/70 and 2nd Awakening skills into PvP? Kinda boring using the same PvP builds since like 2013.
     
  10. So is there any way I can get Colosseum seals without having to interact with other people (on a normal char)? B/c DFOG PvP is aids but I need that War God Top.

    This has to be my favorite addition! I hope it doesn't eat normal character slots. All I really want to do in DFO is PvP, but it had the stigma of being forced to level through PvE which is incredibly boring and takes way too long for me to do even though I clear dungeons pretty fast in Scenario mode.

  16. I say we call the new skill Sun Bomb since Spirit Bomb and all DBZ references are automatically defaulted to EB.

    What difference does it make? News flash, she isn't the only class with bugs, probably didn't even have the most, and even then, it's not like she's unplayable, because of them. Part of the reason "Bug Mage" became a thing was because her issues were pushed aside, while everyone else's were mostly promptly patched out.

    In any case, most of any new bugs I've heard about were back during the test server of the big balance patch, and nothing, since. Haven't really seen anyone that plays kDNF BM around the forums to help divulge information on bug fixes, so I can't say for certain. My guess is they did a good job of cleaning things up, if things have been quiet for this long.
