Dark Knight

In today’s update, the PvE damage of the Succession and Awakening Dark Knight main skills were increased to improve her PvE performance.

Firstly, for the Dark Knight Succession, the duration of the Attack Speed Increase effect of “Unveiled Dagger” has been increased. This addressed the issue of her needing to renew the Attack Speed Increase effect too frequently. Additionally, the ability to combo with Blooming Black Rose has been improved. It was hard to combo due to its limited combo skills, so we expanded on the skills that can combo before and after Blooming Black Rose.

For the Dark Knight Awakening, the cooldown of the DP Decrease skill, “Spirit Legacy”, has been reduced, so that she can keep the DP Decrease effect up for longer.
