Angelic Burster/Magnus/Hyper Skill Update Preview
Instead of a patch in Tespia, Nexon has released an update preview for the future patches of the Tempest update! This includes Angelic Burster, Magnus, and the Hyper Skills!
Angelic Burster, arriving like a comet, with her beauty aims to capture the love of all the Nova kind!
She uses the Soul Shooter as her weapon and the Soul Ring as her secondary weapon.
Angelic Burster uses the Soul Recharge system! Charge up powerful shots that go beyond the limit! Plus, no cooldown! She also has the Dress Up system, meet a fashonista, and dress up your transformation!
Kaiser’s rival, the traitor to the Nova race, and the Black Mage’s commander, Magnus, makes his appearance! He has borrowed power from Darmoa, in order to destroy the Nova. When fighting Magnus, you cannot use your regular boss fighting tactics.
One of the skills that Magnus will use when fighting with you. By the way, you should click on these images (including the one above) to get the animation.
Magnus uses the Bombardment and Zone Control systems. I don’t really know what this means… they don’t explain it. Maybe you’ll actually have to dodge his attacks and move around the map to fight him?
If you are able to defeat Magnus, you’ll gain some new items. He drops level 150 equipment! This includes a weapon, the Former Kaiser’s Great Sword.
There’s also the Superior items, consisting of a cape, shoes, and a belt.
Along with Magnus will come a new dungeon! Hopefully this place is for high levels! I believe this place is called Helisium, it does appear a couple of times in the Kaiser storyline.
There was also information on the new Hyper Skill system. First of all, after level 140, you’ll have access to the powerful Hyper Skills!
Hyper Skills consist of three types:
- A stat boosting passive skill
- 3rd/4th job skill effect enhancing skill
- New attacking active skill
Hyper Skills’ settings can be changed freely. However, the cost of changing them will be proportional to the number of times you have changed them. I’m not sure what this means…
In this update (Beginning of Evolution, Hyper Skills on August 23), only the Hero and Nova jobs will be receiving Hyper Skills. Other classes will receive theirs in a later update. This is lame… why wouldn’t they just release them all at the same time?
Here is Aran’s Hyper Skill. We’ve already seen it though, it consists of three different animations I guess. Sort of weird.
They also showed Kaiser‘s Hyper Skill (click for the animation). Full screen dragon killing strike?
