Patch Notes – Quick Look

New Character – Eva

The Mystifying Telekinetic, Eva, has arrived!

Eva will cost 9,900 A-Coin for 2 weeks and she will be available in ranked matches starting from Monday, August 23rd 11:00 PM (PT).

Telekinesis(Passive)

Telekinesis: Starting at level 6, Eva can open boxes and air supplies, fish, collect, and recover downed allies from range. She can not interact with boxes from range during combat.

VF Bead: When Eva lands a skill or is hit by a basic attack, Eva expels a bead of concentrated VF energy towards the enemy, dealing 30/60/90(+Attack Power 35%) damage and slowing targets hit by 20/25/30% for 2 seconds. Landing a VF Bead on an enemy reduces its cooldown by 30% and grants 5 Vital Force. Eva gains 1 Vital Force every 1 second, 30 per kill, and 15 per assist. 

Vital Force is required when using VF Eruption (R). 

  • Cooldown : 6s 
  • VF Bead Effect Radius : Circular 1m

Light Triad (Q)

Eva casts an orb of light in the targeted direction, dealing 20/40/60/80/100(+Attack Power 25%) damage to enemies hit. When the orb reaches maximum range or the skill is reactivated, it explodes, dealing 75/115/145/185/225(+Attack Power 55%) damage. 

Hitting an enemy with Light Triad grants 10 Vital Force. 

  • SP Cost : 75/70/65/60/55 
  • Cooldown :  6/5.5/5/4.5/4s 
  • Range : 9m  
  • Orb Damage Radius : 1.2m

Phase Vortex (W)

Eva forms a Phase Vortex in the targeted location, dealing 50/90/130/170/210(+Attack Power 50%) damage. Enemies inside the vortex take 10/12/14/16/18% extra damage from Eva’s skills and are slowed by 40%. 

The vortex collapses after 2 seconds, dealing 50/90/130/170/210(+Attack Power 50%) damage and launching enemies in the middle airborne for 1 second. 

Hitting an enemy with Phase Vortex grants 10 Vital Force. 

  • SP Cost : 80 
  • Cooldown : 12 
  • Range : 8m 
  • Effect Radius : Circular 2m  
  • Center Radius : Circular 1m

Amethyst Flow (E)

Eva becomes unstoppable and dashes in the targeted direction, granting her vision of all enemies near her for 3 seconds. Her next basic attack silences her target for 0.1 seconds. Basic attacks immediately remove any extra vision granted from Amethyst Flow. 

If Eva lands a basic attack on a target that is affected by one of her crowd control effects, it applies Amethyst Duress, dealing a total of 50/90/130/170/210 over 3 seconds and granting Eva vision of them. 

  • SP Cost : 70/80/90/100/110 
  • Cooldown : 6/5.5/5/4.5/4s 
  • Movement range : 2.5m 
  • Travel Time : 0.3s

VF Eruption (R)

Eva releases her stored VF, dealing 20/30/40 true damage and applying a stack of VF Dissonance every 0.1 seconds to enemies in range. Upon reaching 5 stacks, Eva consumes the stacks, dealing 40/70/100(+Attack Power 30%) damage. 

A minimum of 15 Vital Force is required to use VF Eruption. VF Eruption consumes 4 Vital Force every 0.1 seconds while channeling. 

Using Amethyst Flow while channeling VF Eruption resets the cooldown of VF Eruption. 

  • Cooldown : 3s (Not affected by cooldown reduction) 
  • Area of Effect : Length 10m, Width 1.6m

New Skins

White Queen Adela will be available for purchase.

Dodgeball King Xiukai will be available for purchase on August 24th! (KST)

System

Player/Wild Animal Collision Check

Collision Checks are now applied to players and wild animals.

  • Players and wild animals will now move around each other when they overlap.
  • Collision checks may impact the overall feeling of the game, so we’re adjusting it to stop overlapping between players and wild animals.

  • Box: Box & Air Supply Info
  • Wild Animal: Wild Animal Respawn Timer

  • Future improvements are planned to prioritize weapon materials first.

Quick Cast/Normal Cast Separation

Usually assigning either Quick Cast/Normal Cast would disable the other option. You can now customize keys to assign them to another key.

  • Any changes made to default options before the update will be saved.

Team Modes LP Calculation Change

  • Squirrel Trap (W)
    • Attack Speed & Movement Speed Slow Duration: 2s → 1.5s
    • (NEW) Max Installation Limit: 4 Sets

    • Damage over time effects without ‘on-hit effects’ no longer trigger Reverse (Ex: Bleeds, Vital Force Disturbance [Wickeline Buff])
    • Damage over time effects with ‘on-hit effects’ will still trigger Reverse. (Ex: Chiara’s Plague(R), Adriana’s Pyromaniac(P)

Leon

Encouraging some skill combos for the surfer boi. Here comes the boy. Hello boy.

  • (NEW) A pool is made at the end of Surf’s Up (R).

  • Elbow Grease (W)
    • Reduces duration of CC by 8% → Reduces duration of Slows by 12%

Li Dailin

    • Second Attack Damage: Attack Power 40/60/80% → 40/50/60%
  • Spirited Kick (Q)
    • 1st, 2nd Cast

    • Slow: 20/27.5/35/42.5/50% → 20/25/30/35/40%

Shoichi

More of a delay after using Risky Business should give his opponents slightly more time to react to his burst.

  • Delay after Risky Business (E) 0.08s → 0.29s

  • Base Attack Speed 0.05 → 0.08

      → 150~300/225~450/300~600(+Attack Power 50~100%)

Emma

We’re improving Hat Trick (W) so that it feels better when casting.

  • When using Hat Trick (W) out of range, it will be cast at max range rather than having Emma move towards the location.

William sometimes struggles to finish kills, this should help – as well as help with his skill combos.

  • Signature Fireball (R)
    • Slow Duration 2s → 2.75s
    • Cooldown: 90/80/70s → 80/75/70s

  • Chainsaw Murderer (R)
    • Cooldown: 100/85/70s → 90/80/70s

Cathy

Mini rework incoming!

Cathy’s skill set has resulted in her having a somewhat dull play style, so we improved it!

Double Bypass(Q) is now a skill shot/dash, which gives the opponents room to respond, but enables Cathy to use it as an escape. Stacking Wounded becomes a bit more difficult, but using it well will return greater results.

  • Base Movement Speed 3.2 → 3.15 
  • Under the Knife(P)
    • Basic attacks do not apply Wounded. However, Double Bypass(Q)’s passive applies a stack of Wounded for her next basic attack after using a skill.
    • When Cathy damages enemies with a skill, she applies 1 stack of Wounded. Cathy can gain 2 stacks of Wounded when grounding enemies with Amputation(W) or stunning with Suture(E).

    • Post-op Shield : 100/125/150(+ Attack Power 25% → 35%)
  • Double Bypass (Q)
    • Passive(NEW) : After using a skill, Cathy’s next basic attack deals 26/65/104/143/182(+Attack Power 52%) skill damage. Damage is increased based on Critical Strike Damage Increase items.
    • Now a skill shot dash.
    • Passes through enemies. Does not move through obstacles. (Delay 0.13s)
    • Range : 3m → 4m
    • Width 1m
    • Cooldown : 16/15.5/15/14.5/14s → 16/15/14/13/12s 12/11.5/11/10.5/10s → 16/15/14/13/12s

    • Post-Skill Delay 0.2s → 0.13s
  • Suture(E)
    • After using the skill, the projectile can be ‘detached’ from Cathy’s arm and she will be able to perform other actions immediately.
    • Sutures can pass through the target and hit an extra enemy or wall. Sutures that hit a second target push the initial target towards the second target and stun them.
    • Base Damage : 30/40/50/60/70(+Attack Power 30%) → 30/40/50/60/70(+Attack Power 20%)
    • Extra Damage : 10/20/30/40/50(+Attack Power 35%) → 30/50/70/90/110(+Attack Power 50/70/90/110/130%)
    • Cooldown : 24/22/20/18/16s → 22/20/18/16/14s
  • Emergency Surgery(R)
    • Skill Width 3m → 2m
    • No longer recovers HP immediately, but creates a healing zone where Cathy dashes, recovering her and her allies HP by 5% per second over 3 seconds.
    • Post-Skill Delay 0.43s → 0.33s

Chiara

Mania damage lowered a touch.

  • Mania (E)
    • Hit Damage 40/60/80/100/120(+Attack Power 30%) → 20/40/60/80/100(+Attack Power 30%)

Hyejin

Hyejin currently relies too much on just one weapon. We’re nerfing Elemental Bow and her overall damage output but giving her more sustainability to open up more options.

  • Charm of Despair (Q)
    • Damage: 100/120/140/160/180(+Attack Power 30%) → 100/125/150/175/200(+Attack Power 30%)

Other

Isol and Barbara have high win rates in upper tiers, the changes to Pistol are set to impact Isol as a nerf. We’re currently keeping an eye out on Assault Rifle Isol and Barbara due to their low pick rates.

Pistol

Moving Reload (D)’s fixed cooldown reduction resulted in overly effective synergies with a selection of skills resulting in a number of characters relying too much on the weapon skill.

We’re changing the cooldown reduction from a fixed cooldown reduction to a percentage reduction and adjusting the pistol weapon type and pistol using characters.

  • Moving Reload(D)
    • 4s Cooldown Reduction → 45% of Remaining Cooldown reduced
      • (Ex: I have 6 seconds left on my 9 second cooldown skill, it will reduce 45% of the remaining 6 second cooldown)
