Skill Review

The long required and long anticipated skill review has begun.

Arcadia has an almost 20 year history of development and game refurbishment which has predominantly affected only dungeons and monsters. Because of this, some skills are no longer well positioned in the game environment and are poor performing or in some cases not at all useful.

This skill review will involve a process of checking for skill function, power and the overall class requirement. Since we have already delivered a package for Warriors skills, we do not anticipate big changes to the way their skills work, however there will be modifications which allow us to provide more balance, fun and enjoyment while preparing for future skills to be added.

Some skills may change more than once during this period as we take feedback from players.

Revelation – removed from drops
Teleport – removed from drops
TaoHalfMoon – removed from drops
Terror – removed from drops

Please note that the starter quests issued by Emily may now not be achievable due to missing skills. This will be addressed in future updates.

Some skills may show an unobtainable level 4. This is in anticipation for future updates.
