This post was made thinking about players between the levels of 12 - 20, but these changes would benefit players from every level. I think there are some problems while leveling up, so i'll talk about them and give my opinion about it. Talents No, there is nothing wrong with talents, the actual problem is how to get them. The first talent in the tree needs 1500 Knowledge points and 750 Gold to level up. The thing is: Knowledge is relatively easy to get (with the 11.0 update, characters get 10.000 points every 5 levels) and we only use it for developing talents anyway, so there are no problems with them requiring a lot of Knowledge. However, we use Gold for a lot of other things: Buying Expert Skills (which i'll talk about later in this post), buying, amplifying or repairing equipment, buying relics, and even in a single quest from Nadir-Sard. Besides that, there are Ship Graveyard talents too that also need gold to level up. It wouldn't be a problem, considering it is an endgame content, but... Class Talents also ended up being endgame content too. New players can't spend that much money in talents to get 0.75% of Penetration, they need to focus on other things which i listed above and i won't repeat. Suggestion: Make the class talents gold-free. It would make them a less pay-to-win content and open them to every player that is willing to farm Knowledge points by completing quests and dungeons. That change would also let the players control their gold better to use it with other things, like Expert Skills, better equipments or Ship Graveyard talents. To compensate for that, increase the Knowledge cost of every single class talent. It wouldn't be that bad, since as i said before, Knowledge is kinda easy to get. Expert Skills It was acceptable that expert skills costed 40.000 gold 8 years ago, in 2014, when it was an endgame content and there was only 1 available to each class (and there were only 12 classes at that time). Now it's 2022, we have 20 classes and each one has almost 10 expert skills. And they're definitely NOT endgame content. I'd say they are as basic as the 5 skills you start with. I know you can get a lot of gold with quests from Ayvondill, but what about a new player with its first character? Imagine reaching level 18 and needing more gold than you ever had just to buy a skill? Everybody knows the 1st expert skill of a character gives a power spike, but there are no ways to effectively farm gold before level 18-20. Suggestion: It is about time that expert skills got a cost reduction. Of course you would only need 3 or 4 of them, but that's still more than 100K gold. Maybe 30.000 for each one is already good enough. However, some people may not like it. As i said before, the 1st expert skill gives a power spike, and after lv 24-25, you can complete T3 and T4 quests to get a considerable amount of gold. So since you can buy them for miracle coins now, i'd make something like the 1st bag expansion of a character. The 1st expert skill of a character would cost 1 or even 0 miracle coins. Just give it for free, bro. New players need it. Conclusion With everything that was said, i hope you understand my point. Honestly, i don't think the cost of expert skills is a problem that big, but it still could be optimized. However, the cost of talents are a problem. You either focus on expert skills, talents or equipments, you cannot gather gold for more than 1 at a time (sometimes you can't afford neither of the three). I hope you understood my point of view, and if there is something you don't agree with, i would like to know.
The "Deathly Eye" + "Poison Spittle" combo needs to be changed, because it's both weak in the situation it's supposed to be strong and it is not something pleasant to use for some reasons; "Deathly Eye" has a very low cooldown, but the chance of affecting bosses is too low at all levels, so you're supposed to be spamming the skill at all times and it's just too much casting animation for a rare 15% max health decrease that most of the time doesn't matter, it's just an indicator that your party has low DPS. The biggest problem is "Poison Spittle" is balanced around the possibility of the combo, so it has a cooldown of 9 seconds and deal less damage than the Priest's "Harad's Tear" which has a 6 seconds cooldown and has the possibility of dealing damage to multiple targets. This is bad, because even if you aren't spending points on "Deathly Eye" - as you shouldn't - you still have to use it to get the full value of "Poison Spittle" this is why I think a quality of life change needs to be made. I suggest something like this: Poison Spittle Range: 5 yards Recharge: 6 seconds Effect: Deals increased magic damage to the target, if the enemy is affected by the skill "Deathly Eye" there's a chance of the enemy suffering poison damage based on their maximum amount of health Deathly Eye Range: 5 yards Recharge: 14 seconds Effect: reduce the enemies magical defense and critical chance for a duration, the effect and duration increases with skill level. 🤷♂️ Idk, something like this, I don't want it to be overpowered, I just think this combo needs to go. However if the devs dislike changing things too much as I know they do, I think that at least "Deathly Eye" should have increased chance of affecting bosses when you spend points on it, cause it really doesn't make sense.
First off let me make it clear that I understand this skill isn't comparable to other skills that summon servants in the game, it's a bunch of skeletons spawning off corpses and attacking enemies randomly apparently and that's why I think this is a bad skill and not very well thought-out. I don't know if other necromancers like this skill, but I dislike it for some reasons that I'm gonna list next. It's a totem Requires corpses In duration of the servants it stay in the middle of a swarm and a long lasting one The skeletons don't focus on the necromancer's targets being hit by or hitting him So to fix this problem I think it would be necessary a complete revamp of the skill, but this would never happen so what I think would be close to good is Make the first skeleton spawn without need of a corpse At least one skeleton at a time should focus the necromancer's target (I understand that making every skeleton attack one target would be too strong, even thought it can happen already) And that's it. I think the skill deals good damage at least in PvE, don't get me wrong, but the way it works ruins it, like when there's no possibility of a corpse, the skill is absolutely useless and the Necromancer already has too many extremely situational skills compared to other classes in my honest opinion.
