    Maybe the commnity's managed to confuse them. Those who asked for every race to be pretty much the same, sort of got what they wanted. Sort of.

    Or maybe it's a typo. Who knows. If it isn't, elves have one less reason to complain - stats should be much more even for hyrbid talents.

    ...I like the idea of a skill or buff that increases with level (either current or total), but if they're not made with any clear function in mind (one that works well with the rest of the game), they're kinda just meaningless power-creep.

    Why does devcat hate magic?

    because elves = faeries = magic folk = true OP race but they don't want to adhere to the roots/truth.

    Racial update is only showing how racist they are towards elves. It's essentially a second final shot skill, but u can 'run' and aim at the same time (which we can do without skills...) you can only do this once per day, to aim up to 100% while running and aiming. You'd think you can naturally do that as a grandmaster archer by now. You can hit targets with ninja/cylinder/gun/puppet (anything ranged that's not archery) while running and without any aiming.

    Pretty much elves are broke because aiming and archery.

    Also for people who are wondering why dev hates elves + magic?

    This sorta thing started to wry me when they started showing 'druid' giants with magic staves in their art, and they were really pushing for the elf + archery only image in the "renovation"

    It's official though. They don't see elves as the race for magic, they just want magic to be equally enjoyed by all races.

    Considering how useful FH is for teleport + target nearest enemy instant hit as opposed to loading skill + wait time for aim, FH already makes a human faster than an elf wtth FS to get the job done.

    "Elves: Improved Strength and Will bonuses, reduced Dexterity and Intelligence bonuses"

    ah seems these stats skill is just to cover what elf and giant weak at, basically, we got better stats and get more similar to each other race

    This is why a lot of the community dislikes elves, you know. Every once in a while, some elves start saying crazy stuff like this, and then we all know that most people who choose to be elves are thinking it. =T

    "INT is useless and STR is OP for hybrid talents come on give elves a buff"

    I know this isn't the kind of buff you had in mind (probably not what anyone had in mind), but it's still funny to see you react that way when they try to fix the problem you keep ranting about.

    I'm not saying you asked for this, but you asked for something similar, and they gave you this instead, and I find it amusing.

    It's like that common situation in cartoons, where someone gets to make a wish or three, and their wishes are all misconstrued to make them miserable.

    Pretty much I guess.

    This is just weird to me, I mean obviously I still can uncap the hardcap for INT but still.. gg DevCat

    its not a negative int modifier, idunno where that came from..its just less of a buff compared to strength and will..so no giants wont be stronger in magic compared to elves..on that same theory a level 190 elf would be just as strong as a giant.. :'D

    We are talking about uncapping hard cap; who can get more INT/STR.

    Giants have 200+ STR more than Elves
    Elves have 20+ more INT than giants.

    P.S INT is the easiest stat to cap for all races I believe (maybe str too for giants)

    Another thing, this is not how you "balance". Throwing the stats elves lack and giants lack won't balance ***

    Giants and humans can use ALL magic skills like elves, but elves can't use all combat skills like the 2 other races.

    Elves lack HP
    Giants lack MP

    Elves lack 200+ STR
    Giants lack 20+ INT

    Giants can use all magic skills
    Elves can't use all combat skills

    Giants get lil buffs (like 600% smash damage)
    Elves don't get insert curse for magic

    kay.

    So in the end, this update isn't worth it and I won't be coming back to Mabinogi any time soon.

    Unless servers merge & they add new lands to explore and fight through that high levels can be a part of without one-sidedly wrecking everything then the game isn't worth playing anymore. Also, the meager reward for every 10 levels from level 50 isn't worth it and a maximum of 15 minutes for one real day(?) is definitely just a joke and not worth it. I considered coming back but overall this game's still dead to me.

    I would rather go back to the days where Gachapons sucked and getting loot in dungeons with parties was worth the effort. Now it's just mediocre updates to game content and updates to gachapons to spend hard-earned cash.
