Cabal's New Transcender Skills

Today's update is all about the new skills, and I have included every level of every skill, not including the 4 new buff skills (If needed I can provide these as well, but I am fairly sure these 4 skills will either be on level 20 or not trained at all). So, as you might imagine, the blog update is a bit image-heavy and it might take a while to scroll all the way to the bottom. To compensate for that there will not be too much text - just for today, of course.

So, let us get started.

Cabal's New Upgrading System

Upgrading simply by clicking on a core, then clicking on the item you wish to upgrade, is now a thing of the past. Upgrading items via any Core Alchemist has likewise gone the way of the dinosaurs, visible only in the museum of old screenshots. (Well, I am not talking about force core upgrades, now - only the +8 to +12 item level upgrades can be done anywhere. To fill the item slot you still need to visit your friendly local Alchemist.) The upgrading process now has a completely new, separate interface, that is accessible either via right-clicking on a core, or by clicking on the small button on the lower left side of your personal inventory screen.

Aika Castle Siege

Castle Siege is a PvP (player versus player) feature unique to Aika where the guilds and guild alliances within a nation compete in a bloody campaign to secure the Lakian Fortress — the ultimate national seat of power. Every week, all five nations will each be host to a potential military revolution, where the Lord Marshal and his ruling regime must defend the Fortress against an onslaught of would-be usurper guilds and guild alliances. As the Fortress is very heavily fortified and the incumbent administration is given large status and damage bonuses, it is no simple task for the invaders to achieve victory within the designated time limit.

Aika Sniper Skill Guide

The rifleman is a long ranged class in Aika that has one of the higher defense rating, and hp amounts. This lets you take more damage than average, and lets you get out of some sticky situations. It also has remarkable range which is useful since it gets you outside AOE range for bosses, and lets you attack from farther range in PvP. The damage is also very respectable in single target fights. Personally I have not lost a single one on one fight as long as I kept my head on straight. The one time I did lose I tried to be cute and let a warrior in to close while at half health. That said your only real enemies are warriors. Everything else is a free kill one on one. Just get the first attack in on a warrior and you will always win.
