[By Class]

    • Skill Enhancement: The Stiffness effect will be applied on a successful 1st hit of the Radiant Storm, only in PVE.

    • Skill Enhancement: The Knockdown effect will be applied on a successful hit of the Deadly Explosion, only in PVE.

    • The Knockback effect will be applied on a successful hit of the Bolt of Radiance, only in PVE.

 

[Developer’s Comment]
We have been reviewing and testing Archer to make improvements to the class, while keeping Archer's unique characteristic as the longest ranged class. Many of Archer's ranged skills cause CC status effects, and we have concluded that this gives Archer too big of an advantage in PvP. Therefore, we have adjusted the CC status effect skills Archer have, with more of the changes to the effects in PvP and less to the effects in PvE. We will keep on working on Archer. We not only want to keep what is unique to Archer, but have the class fit harmoniously with the other classes of BDO.
