Weaponskills

Unique and enhanced weaponskills with additional effects like en-spells, refresh and regen, and elemental debuffs on the target. We also unlock relic, mythic, empyrean, merit, and quested weaponskills as you level.

Unlocking Weapon Skills

Quested/WSNM Weapon Skills : All quested/NM-related weapon skills unlock when you reach skill level 230 or 250 (varies by weapon, based on the level you could acquire the quest).

Relic Weapon Skills : All relic weaponskills unlock when you reach skill level 280 of the appropriate weapon type and have the appropriate weapon equipped.

Empyrean Weapon Skills : All empyrean weapon skills unlock when you reach skill level 300 (because they’re cooler!) of the appropriate weapon type.

Merit Weapon Skills : All merit weapon skills unlock when you reach skill level 357 of the appropriate weapon type.

Mythic Weapon Skills : All mythic weaponskills unlock when you reach skill level 380 of the appropriate weapon type.

Merit Weaponskills Enhancements

This change is primarly due to the fact that players cannot assign merits into these weaponskills. If/when those merits become available, the merits will be added as a bonus to further enhance these weaponskills.

The biggest damage change players will notice with these is that most of them pass their fTP along to each hit (since almost all are multi-hit); for many weaponskills, this will be a damage improvement and increase the potency of fTP gear, such as elemental gorgets and belts.

All

  • Weaponskills that can pass fTP across all WS hits have had that parameter added.
  • All weaponskills now have the attribute WSC bonus equal to 55 merits.

Weaponskill Enhancements

Sword

Burning Blade / Red Lotus Blade

  • Adds a 10 second Burn effect to the target enemy.

Atonement

  • The base damage cap has been removed from the weaponskill (previously player level * 10 in retail).
  • Base damage formula is cumulative enmity + (volatile enmity * 3) + enmity modifier * 2.
  • Cumulative enmity multiplier has been adjusted and based loosely based on tp / 25000 (~0.04x for 1000 TP and 0.12x for 3000 TP) to prevent massive damage growth loops by reusing Atonement over and over while still providing more CE than normal weaponskills.
