This one is the up coming expansion in ZX, Zhu Xian Prologue: The Birth of Regenesis. Or rather call it, Journey to the Wildlands. (I will translate that once I finish Zhu Xian, I will treat that story as "Zhu Xian-extra) Journey to the Wildlands is the prologue of Zhu Xian, which is about Tian Bolis, Cang Song, Vanti the Etherblade, Cheng Shu Chang, Shang Zheng Liang, and Surin together set out a mission to wipe out the Felkin heretics of the Wildlands. It is also the reason why Anan, Bilu, and Shaw Danon came together.
So far, there are two main details about this expansion. (Don't ask me about Elysium map)
-Two New Faction: Incense and one other Athen, perhaps Barbe.
Incense is a well balanced fire mage class. They have burn attack and also fire array defense. Have good survivability in battle. Probably not going to have as high damage as Rayan, but will still have quite strong Dps and defense.
Weapon is ring. Use it to summon sword to attack. The esper will be the Mystic Fire Seal. It probably won't summon a Wasteland Dragon out there and wipe out everyone...so don't get excited about that.
Barbe, or whatever that Athen is, is a fist fighter, kind of between Balo and Lupin. They will have good defense and damage like Incense, but more direct unlike the burn Incense has. Not so much info about that faction at the moment....
As for skill adjustment-
Modo: Improve bleed damage and also low tier skills so new players can lvl up faster.
Lupin: Reduce skill cooldown and increase damage.
Balo: Increase resistance, adjustment on Balo's skill distance.
Arden: Add remove negative status skill
Celan: Increase base stats, reduce skill sp cost
Skysong: Quicker channel speed for buff, improve some skill damage
Rayan: Second stealth skill, does not share the same cooldown with other stealth skill
Jadeon: Increase survivability, reduce channel time, increase single target damage attack
Vim: Speed buff has effect on mount, improved defense, crit, damage and reduce cooldown for some skills.
According to a Wanmei staff, the Athen is still in final decision on what change should be made, so not much detail about it.
- Faithful defender have 40% chance of absorbing damage. The total damage absorb equal to sum of caster's max hp+sp
- Seven Disasters increase extra damage, MS's damage equation adjusted.
- Embodiment Truth effect adjusted.
- Heaven's Howl effect increased.
- Windrunner increase speed by 75%, work on mount
- Reduce cooldown of Perpetual Loneliness, Clever Rebuttal, and few t3 skills.
- Profane Path give crit damage increase.
- Skyseeker's accuracy depend on the chroma lvl difference of caster and target.
- The benefit gain from form increased.
- Immeasurable Truth 2 sleep effect depend on the chroma lvl difference of caster and target.
- Some skills' heal amount change to percentage.
- The Four Elements can release all at once.
- Increased effect of Blessing of Spring and Positive Reinforcement.
- River Dweller crit damage increased.
- Added some control skills, but there is a bug in test server.
- Stealth will be weakened, clone stay the same, real Rayan will be stronger but lower evasion.
