Change on the PTR of Lost Ark in Korea

In Korea, Smilegate just announced setting up the PTR (Test Server) for the game’s next major update. Patch notes accompany the latter, and the least we can say is that there are change. Nerfs classes considered “top-tier”, buffs others that are a bit overlooked. Reddit and the forums are a little on fire, but let’s try to understand the changes that are driving the web crazy. So we won’t talk about all the classes here, because some things will probably change.

The Berzerker: the end of the Chaos specialization?

On the side of Berserker, it must be recognized that big changes are underway on the PTR version. Some attacks become back attacks, which will improve their damage by placing you behind a boss, but also a change on the rune Piercing attack technical Assault Bladewhich goes from 37% defense ignored on hit by your attack, to ”’a debuff that improves damage taken by the opponent by 6% for 6 seconds…which is technically a buff, if this concerns your whole team.

But where things get more interesting is with the Berzerker class engravings. That of Berserker Technique is buffed, increasing crit damage from 30/40/50% to 35/50/70% when in fury mode. On the other hand, the engraving Chaos, she sees herself nerfed, and not just a little. The damage inflicted increases from 4/9/18% to +3/7/14%, and above all, ”’you will now only be able to receive 40% of the healing effects, which will clearly reduce the life of the latter .

It must be recognized that Chaos is being severely nerfed here, both in terms of damage and healing. We’ll have to see how things go, but according to the calculations, the Zerker loses 6% damage in Chaos level 3, and 3-4% in Mayhem 1. We can imagine that Smilegate would also like to highlight the other specialization here, namely Berserker Technique.

Bloodblade: Major nerf to the Surging Specialization

Here, it is the number of stacks of Surging Storm that undergoes a change: Previously, you could accumulate up to 20 stacks of the buff of the Surging Storm, knowing that one stack = 7.5% more damage on your Deferlante. With the PTR change, accumulating 20 stacks will only do 100% more damage. So that’s a 50% damage loss. It’s also a hell of a nerf.

However, be aware that the spec breaking wave is in a bit of a strange position on the Korean version of the game. To quickly summarize, this specialization was seen as nothing previously, which meant that almost all high-level content players played in specialization Residual energy. However, the specialization breaking wave has recently been improved. It was much more difficult to optimize, but was, on the other hand, theoretically one of the specs in the game that did the most damage. Was it still necessary not to crash during a fight.

But the players still stayed on the spec Residual energy for two reasons: The price of a change of specialization (to re-equip, to reoptimize, with the right runes etc… this has a huge cost, much more than for us on the global version currently), and the second reason is than the spec Residual energy punishes mistakes less in terms of DPS. It therefore remained the choice of simplicity. And let’s also add that the KR community also wanted to see if changes would not take place, so as not to respec for nothing… and they were obviously right to wait.

The Witch: Small nerf to the Ignitor specialization

As for the Witch, rest assured: A small nerf is announced, but it won’t change much. In specialization Ignitorduring your Magic Amplification, the improvement of the damage of your spells goes from 10 to 8%. Same thing during the Torrent of Arcane, or you will go from 20 to 16%. On the other hand, the scaling of your spells will be slightly improved during the Magic Amplification state, from 2.15 to 2.2. We are therefore on a real nerve of 2% ~. Everything is fine.

We are waiting to have a confirmed list for the release before listing all the changes, but if you wish, you can read them all here. Don’t forget, if some nerfs don’t make sense to you, that the equipment is much more advanced on this version, and that some optimizations don’t yet exist with us.

Good game everyone !
