Jump to: navigation, search

On April 20th, 2011, Nexon released an overhaul of Staff Evie's controls and skills. Staff melee attacks were removed and Magic Arrow became Evie's basic attack. Focus was added to allow Evie to access her increasing repertoire of spells, which would have become inaccessible with the previous quick slot item system. There were also some defensive skills added to increases Evie's survivability and the Alchemy Box was added to help Evie manager her many Alchemy items, while preventing them from filling her quick slots.

Basic Attack (Left Click/A) - Magic Arrow[edit | edit source]

The regular attack button activates Magic Arrow. Although it is slightly weak, Magic Arrow now only required 5 stamina to cast and is somewhat faster. The range no longer increase with each casting and is instead affected by Evies stats. At rank 9 Magic Arrow fires three arrows as it used to do when the player used a Fine Magic Arrow Gem (which also required rank 9). This skill replaced staff Evie's melee attack.

Smash Attack (Right Click/D) - Focus[edit | edit source]

The smash attack button actives Focus which grants access to Staff Evie's other staff spells. As the smash button is held down the Focus gauge fills. The gauge has four levels at which varying spells may be cast using the movement keys.
