Elves are FINALLY getting a perk/s?

Please for the love of god, fill me in? Do we have any information yet?

I seem to have missed the stream but the summary says "Elves will lock in for a volley of rapid attacks". Does this imply that the perks will be purely in terms of ranged attacks? Because there is a lot of glitches/lag with elf ranged attacks on our server. nonetheless, this is good news. Info?

    I remember when I used to be an elf for a long time before staying as a giant. Archery was actually my favorite talent. Just the horrible price for missing drove me away, and the insane AP costs for ranged attack. Archery isn't perfect but I like archery more as a human because of arrow relvover. (Which I feel should have been ELF only, not human only.)

    that's also a reason why i barely touch my FS skill, despite being grandmaster archer (still rank 9 FS)

    I really think that elf should be given AR as well. It doesn't make sense that it's human only. I would gladly share it with humans if elves got it, but elf only makes sense too. I mean, humans got FH for (swearing word) sake.

    Yeah I'd hardly call it a perk. The one case where it's even almost useful is magnum lockdown, but you're already gated more by server lag than aim speed.

    I disagree. I see AR as a humans ace-in-the-hole in archery, much like FH is for close combat. Giant Warriors/Elf Archers may outclass their human counterparts in general, but humans can pull these out and keep up.

    Or at least that's how it used to be. The game has changed a ton, and the perks of being an elf archer aren't nearly is great as they initially were. They went from having the fastest loading skills to having average-slow loading skills (elf ranged attack loaded at .3 seconds and magnum at .5, while human ranged attack loaded at .8, and AR loaded at 1 second at rank 1 AND elves aimed while ranged attack was loading), if elf ranged attack is buggy. And we all know that FH is OP (yet still boring) right now, although Bash is better in terms of pure single target DPS.

    Taking AR from humans would be dum (AR existed before elves). Giving it to elves wouldn't be too bad, but it's not an ideal solution either. Elves need their own thing, and I think they already have it in all of their existing advantages, but they need to be updated to match the new speed of the game. I think either giving elves increased initial aim% (like AR), or increased aim speed would be good, along with maybe getting rid of that delay between 99% and 100%, if only for elves.

    Isn't elf running speed 1.3x that of a human?

    See the thing I don't understand is that elves are the strongest class in this game for end game. Mag spam, is the single highest dps skill in the game, and Crystal Deer + Archery allows you to solo Phantasm so much easier then it should (Elves are now SOLOING it in sub 25 mins now in KR). Sure I get it, it takes an insane amount of money, gear, and reforges to even get close to that. I also get for a lot of other situations that aren't end game, they can't quite do as much. But for everyone complaining that Elf Archery is weak or under powered, just haven't hit that power spike to understand just how strong it is.

    snip

    Archery's relatively unreliable by design, and it's made worse by lag which many people cannot get around. It's hard to care how strong archery potentially is when it simply isn't working on the most basic level. With that said, I think the buff being given to it is a horrible way to try and fix a problem just like with final hit; simply throwing raw power at a mechanical problem isn't a great way to fix things.

    solo phantasm/mag spam = strongest race




    ok.

    I did phantasm solo without any mag reforge and 200 ping, does that make elves strongest race? no.

    What orkane said is also true.

    Everything is "relatively unreliable" compared to something that's of a higher certainty. The fact that you can miss your shots at high aim % doesn't make archery less competitive than any other skillets in endgame. This is somewhat compensated with the update that allowed you to aim up to 100%, and then further remedied with this upcoming buff, to elves only, which increases the aim speed. And of course this doesn't even take into account the increased aim speed from reforges.


    Everything is made worse by lag. If this lag isn't ping based (i.e. potato CPU), you really shouldn't factor this in.
