Updates [Update] October 28 (Thu) Update Details
ShadowArena 2021-10-28 04:47 (UTC+0)




Here are the updates made to Shadow Arena during the maintenance on October 28 (Thu).  

Patch SizeApprox. 260.27 MB  

Check out the details below, and we will see you in the Arena 




■ Hero 


| All 

- Removed cooldown of Roll.   

- Increased stamina cost of Roll from 20 to 40.   

  > However, Ataraxia will use 35 Stamina when performing roll. 


| Sub Mastery 

- Changed the effect of [Nimble Maneuver] to the following: 

Before: Reduce roll cooldown by 0.5 sec, Movement Speed +5% 

After: Stamina +5, Movement Speed +10%

[Dev Note]
With the addition of Solo mode and a focus on 1v1 battles, we decided that a cooldown on the roll skill did not fit the current game environment, so it was removed. However, if the cost of stamina to use roll remained the same, considering the speed at which stamina is restored, roll could be used without restriction, which is why the cost of stamina was doubled. This change will also boost the value of stamina items, which were previously undervalued in comparison to other items. In this regard, the balance of stamina items was adjusted, as well as the sub-mastery effect. We anticipate that these changes will make battles more dynamic and exciting. 


| Dark Mark B (Q)

Fixed the issue where the projectile was occasionally not displayed from the inflicted player’s point of view 

Improved the launching location of the projectile to be more natural.  




Fixed the issue where the frowning facial expression was maintained after the skill was used.  

Changed so you could make a special projectile attack upon using basic attack after using skill.  

  > A projectile is created near Herawen after each skill is used. The projectile is then fired when performing a basic attack. 

  > Each projectile will not disappear when skills are used other than basic attacks.  

  > Each projectile can be stacked according to each skill. 

→ For example, if you use Seed of Ice (Q) then use Thunder Viper (E), both Movement Speed reduction and Knockback effects will be applied on the following attack. 

  > However, please note that basic attack enhancement effect of each skill is different and details are as follows.  
[Special attack effect of projectiles from each skill]  

① Light of Kamasylvia (RMB): DP Reduction - 50 for 3 sec   
② Ancient Dragon's Breath (RMB): Burn Damage – 390 for 3 sec   
③ Seed of Ice (Q): Movement Speed Reduction 10% for 3 sec  
④ Thunder Viper (E):  Knockback 1 sec    




| Heavenly Descent/Judgment of Light B (R) 

Fixed the issue where the hit sound effect did not play from the opponent’s point of view.  




| Thorns of Corruption (RMB) 

- Fixed the issue where Thorns of Corruption (RMB) skill was not applied to AI bots. 




- Changed so you cannot attack while moving diagonally.  


| Thaw Winter A (Q) 

Changed so stun effect is applied for 1 sec when you summon the boomerang for the first time. 

Adjusted the maximum damage to 720%.  

  > 300% damage is applied when you summon the boomerang for the first time and while summoned, it spins and deals 70% damage 6 times.   

- Increased cooldown from 11 sec to 13 sec. 

- Improved skill actions to be dynamic.  

- Adjusted the time boomerang is summoned.  

Before: Summon immediately after using a skill 

Now: Summon in jump motion after using a skill 

  > According to the changes applied, if you are hit before summoning the boomerang after using the skill, summoning may be canceled. 


| Thaw Winter B (Q) 

- Increased boomerang’s movement speed by approximately 2.8 times.  

- After using the skill, the boomerang explodes when moving a certain distance, and applies powerful damage and knockback effect to enemies nearby. 

  > However, the boomerang explodes immediately if you press Q again.  

- Adjusted maximum damage from 540% to 810.  


| Shining Light A (E) 
Changed so you cannot use skill while moving. 
- Decreased the time it takes for skill to hit enemy by approximately 35%.  


| Burning Hula Hoop B (R) 

- Changed the skill to the following. 

  > Durgeff mounts a burning boomerang and quickly dashes forwardEnemies hit by the boomerang are knocked up in mid-air and applied a powerful damage 

  > You can change directions while moving.  

  > After successfully targeting the skill, you can make a smooth transition from the tumbling motion to the Fire-rang skill.

[Dev Note]
The fun factor of playing Herawen and Durgeff Durkan were reduced as a result of applying the 

play style of Trio to Solo mode, so we are making overall adjustments to the two Heroes. Because these changes may have an impact on the balance, we'll keep a close eye on it after the update.
