Today’s new content patch not only comes with a new hero named “Karok” but the much awaited Transformation Stage 2 for both Paladins and Dark Knights. This new patch balances the Pally/DK transformation by splitting up the talent tree into two stages.
Skill Patch 1 centres on Stage One, and Skill Path 2 centres on Stage Two transformation. Here are the summary of changes so you will not be surprised once you login to the game.
25% weaker than the pre-update version
Can be activated anytime once-per-hour, there is no need for 10 AP and full SP bar
Health Mastery skill now up to Skill Rank 3 only
Attack now up to Level 3 only
Revelation: Fatigue and Revelation: Potential now up to 3 levels only
As usual, limited to 2 minutes transformation only
50% stronger than the pre-update version
New look, new transformation animation
Requires 10 AP and 2 full SP bars to activate
Requires Stage One Transformation
Requires at least 10 Skill Points used in Stage One Skill Tree
New Paladin Skill: Convinction – an aura surrounds the Paladin, damaging enemies around him or her while absorbing damage done to the character
New Dark Knight Skill: Fissure – the Dark Knight summons a gigantic spike from the earth that strikes their enemies
Up to 1 minute only
If activated during the first minute of Stage One, the whole transformation will still last 1 full minute. Example: If Stage One still has 1 minute and 30 seconds left when Stage Two is activated, the whole transformation will only have 1 minute, not 1 minute and 26 seconds.
If activated during the last minute of Stage One, the whole transformation will only last whatever is remaining from Stage One’s 2 minutes. Example: Stage One only have 50 seconds left, once Stage Two is activated, there will be only 46 seconds left (Stage Two animation takes 4 secs).
