[Notice] Announcement regarding the adjustments made to Shakmeh’s skilll ‘Advent of Despair’(3rd Skill)

Greetings Raiders,

This is KING’s RAID Studio.

We sincerely apologize for the lack of explanation we have provided through our latest maintenance regarding the adjustments we have made to the DMG of Hero Shakmeh’s skilll ‘Advent of Despair’. We deeply regret about the measurements we have taken, and we’re terribly sorry for the disappointment this may have caused.

At first, in the process of preparing the new Hero Shakmeh, he was designed to have a high HP compared to other Knight Heroes which would allow him to withstand the DMG of the enemies in the front line. Also, he’s been designed to be a Tank Knight who can work out as a supporting role to the party.

Furthermore, Shakmeh can heal allies and attack enemies equal to a certain percentage of self’s Max HP, which allows to add more power to the team. He’s also a Hero that can cause considerable amount of DMG depending on his set of Gear.

However, we have noticed that Hero Shakmeh was causing too high levels of DMG which could affect the PVP contents. We have realized that on the first use of the skill ‘Advent of Despair (3rd Skill)’ when Shakmeh’s Unique Treasure ‘Scroll of Royalty’ is equipped, caused the other team to be defeated at a single strike. Also, when stacking [Dark Spirit] to the max, this could be of more danger to the balance of the team.

In addition, when using Shakmeh’s skill ‘Advent of Despair (3rd Skill)’ Shakmeh becomes immune to CC. In other words Shakmeh couldn’t be stopped by other Heroes’ CC ATKs.

Also, it was a skill that ignored defense so it was no use even if the opponents increased their DEF. As a result, we realized that this was not the Knight class we intended to create, and we knew this could be a threat to the current Arena contents. In the end, we decided to make adjustments to the skill in order to fix Shakmeh as a proper Tank Knight class character.

In the process of these adjustments, we were not able to listen or provide the necessary information, thus causing disappointment to Raiders who have cared for our game. We also feel responsible for not having prepared or tested enough during the development process.

We are aware that this has caused a huge disappointment to Raiders who have taken their time to build Shakmeh with all efforts and time. We know this might not make any changes to the disappointment we have given to all Raiders, but still we’d like to apologize by changing the rewards we were planning to distribute as compensation.

※ Please note that only Hero Shakmeh’s Unique Gear can be used as a medium in the Shakmeh’s Awakening Transfer Ticket.

Thank you.

From the KING’s RAID Studio.

  1. Also, we have encountered additional bugs with the issue in which [Tree of Sin] can’t be attacked when using Roi’s Blade Claw (3rd Skill).

    You mean the players encountered an additional bug that we didn’t notice?

    1. They already knew about this issue. I’m guessing that they meant they encountered additional bugs while trying to fix it

    2. Hello there. Yes, we have found additional bugs with this issue and we will be fixing it as soon as possible. We’re sorry for the inconvenience caused.

  2. Congratulations Vespa. You are listening and making the right decisions. Things like these happen in all games and will continue happening forever, and that’s fine. What makes the difference is the company’s ability to handle it swiftly and fairly. Please continue on this track.

  3. Dear Vespa Team,

    the Nerf was necessary, but game design-wise changing UT3 def igno to some other effect would be way smarter.

    The low dmg scaling on S3 will make UT3 obselete and has no place in any Content anymore.

    1. Exactly! and easier fix than what they did. and now the character’s shit because of what they did.

      probably because DLK users were crying cause they can’t win in arenas anymore with their BROKEN DLK!

      Maybe it’s time to build DLK,FFREY AND PANSI since they have nerf protection!

  4. It’s kinda weird that you guys can do this sort of adjustment right away and still refuse to nerf other bloated characters cause they’re famous enough to milk.
    You know that you can milk more if you actually fix your balance issue and actually communicate properly on those who play the game esp. those who are old users right?
    If you can listen to your marketing team or whoever the fuck decided to make costumes limited or those retarded packages that can literally make the player just spend and dont play the game at all then i’m assuming you can look at comments?

    Probably not i mean you guys went downhill already ever since UT release.
    Bluepay drama/ Hack drama / Gladi – Shea nerf drama. Idk lol you guys stupid asf

      1. Yeah just go ppl like u makes the game and community toxic. It is better without the likes of u.

    1. Well is the first time they doing this and by the look of tit sounds like alot of people is going to work extra time for it so…
      Maybe this can open the door for more re calls but debout it for now.

    2. It’s time to build DLK,FFREY and PANSIRONE so we won’t get NERFED

      Wasted 45k Rubies just to get NERFED

  5. We are fortunate the Japanese whales were unhappy as they are the only ones who Vespa listens to. All hail our Japanese overlords.

  6. Thank you vespa was really mad at start but you explaining your reason and giving this much love to ppl who spent on him as a compensation really helped to turn all rage and disappointment to something positive and hope that u do care about players and game health at the same time keep the good work vespa

  7. Hello GM. Do we need to send inquiries to get those reward (like the one you mentioned in previous post), or it will be sent to all raiders without exception? Thanks.

    1. “The rewards mentioned above need to be worked on through our dev team, so we will be sending these rewards to all Raiders from all server on February 23rd (Tue).”

      I believe it will be sent to everyone.

    2. Hello Kekbera. The rewards we mentioned above will be sent to all Raiders from all servers on February 23rd (Tue). Hope this has cleared up your question!

  8. Not that I mind the absurd compensation… but this really wasn’t necessary.

    Just bunch of crybabies sounding that wah alarm.

  9. Indeed it needed to take all your JP whales rioting for you to compensate us properly. All hail our JP whales.

    If only you used your brains and realised that the initial compensation was terrible, you would not need to make this long notice now.

    And it’s still quite laughable how Shakmeh gets nerfed meanwhile other heroes remain immune to nerfs (*looks at Pansirone and Dark Lord Kasel*). It’s just a “SELECTIVE no-nerf policy” if you ask me.

    Furthermore, I would also like to point your balancing. Testing changes BEFORE implement on live servers is substantially important and essential. To use your one player-base to do your testing for you is irresponsible and lazy. It never ends well (hence your backlash now)” regarding Shakmeh).

    Now I point you to your November balance patch which you have kept you silence stance on. Hopefully you DO have further plans to make amends and readjustments to the heroes you memed (Theo, Crow, Viska, Tanya, Viska etc + Dakaris from December). This time, actually WITH tests.

    Let’s not forget how you still have no response to your Magic vs Physical disparity and WB3 overtuned amp for nearly a year. No QOL changes for mobile (dispatch with events). Shakmeh being reduce to 60 tickets does not solve the issue.

    To conclude, you better make this global anniversary extremely good and release your plans which straighten out these issues if you wish to keep players playing because there are many games competing with you (and sadly, King’s Raid is falling behind).

    Communication is essential and vital, else many players will think you aren’t listening unless you are the one dropping ¥$€.

  10. I hope this won’t affect your plans for the anniversary
    this is actually my first anniversary (and I hope it’s not the last) I have high expectations for a rewarding events.
    so many unfortunate accidents occurred and it’s really sad that most of the comments recently are full of rage so let’s wish that the next events could make everyone happy enough to forget about everything and just enjoy KR 🙂

      1. Is it really that hard to imagine that ppl who are hoping for good events to come do exist…

      2. So Shak’s nerf gets compensated for, but laudia’s nerf is forgotten. Using terms such as “fixing what wasn’t intended” is just your way of trying to hide the fact that you’re nerfing things after saying you wouldn’t. First you come out with new op magic assassins that completely outshine Laudia. Then you sneak a nerf.

        Yes, she isn’t new. Doesn’t change that people have spent both money and saved resources to build her. If you don’t want to hand out transfer tickets, buff her. She can’t even dps through high stages shak tree. She deserves better.

  11. Vespa we appreciate your game, but I think it’s about time to be more realistic with your game.
    This nerf, whereas it may be “necessary”, brings to question other heroes which you just refuse to nerf (Pansi, Dkas, etc.).
    I don’t see how it is fair to enforce a “no-nerf” policy, when heroes have been nerfed in the past, and little to no compensation has been given to players.
    It isn’t fair to suddenly turn around and say you won’t nerf heroes anymore, when your game is in this state.
    There certain meta heroes, and certain heroes which quite literally do not meet the expectation bar for today’s PVE and PVP content.
    Unless you plan to “balance” every hero in the game, please revise your “no-nerf” policy.

    Great game though, keep it up. : )

  12. When will Seria got the adjust she deserves?

    It is insulting how roi & chase got good buff, meanwhlle seria got meme buff.

    And you were hoping player to buy new seria package with this meme buff??? Laughable.

  13. Will all raiders get this rewards?

    Shakmeh Unique Weapon Awakening Transfer Ticket x 1

    Shakmeh Unique Treasure Awakening Transfer Ticket x 4

    Shakmeh Soul Weapon Transfer Ticket x 1

    Unique Weapon Ticket (Shakmeh) x 1

    Unique Treasure Ticket (Shakmeh) x 1

    Soul Weapon Rearrange Ticket x 50

    100,000,000 Gold

    Reforge Tickets x 100

    5,000 Rubies

    I mean all raiders without Shakmeh ut and no purchase.

    1. Hi there, Ike Marth. Yes we will be sending these rewards to all Raiders from all servers!

  14. Change the game to Pansirone’s Raid already. the hero with the “no-nerf” policy!

    PANSIRONE, FALLEN FREY, DARK LORD KASEL HEROES WITH NERF PROTECTION!

    GOOD JOB! VESPA! GOOD JOB!

  15. Xanadus is dead again! Thanks to your constant physical team bias with OP powercreep physical heroes and WB3 overtuned physical amp for 11+ months.

    Horrifying how all physical support heroes and tanks benefit ONLY physical teams. Meanwhile magic support/tanks benefit both damage types??? Just biased.

    Then also meme buffs for magic heroes (Theo, Viska, Chrisha, Seria etc..). Instead physical heroes who don’t need buffs get buffed (Chase and Selene).

    And broken physical heroes become ‘nerf-immune’ like Pansirone, Dark Lord Kasel etc…

    Absolutely disgusting how you treat magic team user.
    All magic users are dead thanks your bias. Congratulations!
    Also you remain silent and have no words for this biased behaviour. How disgusting.

    Well done for alienate your magic team playerbase.
