PWI Skills Balance Patch

Caveat :

THIS MIGHT NOT BE ACCURATE, BUT IT’S THE BEST I CAN DO. If I’m unsure on a translation, I’ll include a note =).

ALSO IF YOU’RE FROM TIDESWELL I’M BUYING R9 DAGGER MOLD ;___; do FWS and gimme a mold! PM HeartBleed in game or join my discord and @me. Kthx <3.

New Skills

Ok, so this is my attempt at translating >this picture<. From the WanMei forums. I’m just going down the list in order, I’m going to focus on translating the new skills first, so I’m leaving the skill nerf/buffs alone until I add all the new skills. I’m slowly filling in the blanks now.

Keep checking back, eventually all the field will be filled in. (Or I just get bored and forget about this whole thing, who knows?)

If you want to help with translations/corrections, >join my Discord<. Also looking for possible contributors to possibly make a new fansite with updated information? Idk.

I’m writing this one skill at a time (Last updated March 7, 2AM GMT -5), so it’ll literally be updated by the minute/hour over the next few days. This is not only this post, but the site in general (still need to iron out the theme and stuff).

Editor/Translator’s Notes

Quick thanks to everyone on Tideswell that answered my questions on WC!

Ignore the Ω/Ψ/Ф icons for now, I know they’re wrong on the table below, I don’t wanna mess with it yet. I’ll get to the proper Chinese/English translations for those later. My current theory is :

  • Ω – 神 – Primal Demon (yes it’s the same character for God/Divine)
  • Ф – 神 – Primal Sage (yes it’s the same character for God/Divine)
  • Σ – 神 – Primal 100 skill (you can kinda see how 神 gets confusing, no it doesn’t mean Primal, it means Divine)
  • Ψ – 至 – Neverfall (“Extreme” in the tables below), but I also see 神 used for Ψ skills too… so confused
  • – 创世 – “Creation”, think this refers to the subsiding dirt skill.

Ignore the wrong glyph names, I’ll replace Red with Sanguine later (as well the other colors)

I haven’t played in a while, so I’m not very familiar with the game after the rebirth patch, I’m just coming back. I could be very wrong about basic game knowledge, please submit any corrections if you see them!

Current Progress

Just doing the initial draft, will go back and fix all the grammar/icons.
Also need to find numeric values for the Glyph effects.

BM – Done
Mage – Done
Barb – Done
Veno – Done
Archer – Done
Cleric – Done

Extreme : ChargeNew SkillCombines [Wreckless Rush] with [Vacuous Palm]
Requires any melee weapon

Jump to an enemy within 20 meters, causes target to receive additional physical damage for 3 seconds, target is slowed for 8 seconds.
"Extreme" is basically the prefix like Ω/Ψ. I'm sure we'll get a new symbol.

Immediately recovers 50% of HP and continue to recover 100% of your health. Convert 80% of your physical attack to both physical defense and magical defense. Lasts 60 seconds.
金刚 translated to Sanskrit is "Vajra", a mythical weapon from Buddhism that resembles the western concept of "Thunderbolt". The two characters are also the prefix for the Chinese names of Diamond Sutra and Buddha's Guard.

Blades/Swords range is increased to 20 meters, deals an additional 100% of weapon damage, damage converted to metal damage.
I wish this was renamed to Rising Dragon Breaks the Sky, like in The King's Avatar.

Can't wait for season 2 ^___^

Also I could be translating TKA instead of translating PWI skills right now =(
Star SmitePoleblades/Pikes/Clubs have a 33% chance to stun for 5 seconds

*** This translation is most likely wrong, I need to reread the Chinese text again. I'll come back for this.

Also, the commas and periods are not going to match up, I'm breaking Chinese grammar to make this more English readable.

There’s a translation on the PWI General Discussions forums, it’s pretty much right.

    

Knight*

yeah I know you guys are calling it Paladin, BUT WE DON’T KNOW YET OKAY, LET ME BE.

So they’re balancing the new classes that we don’t have yet, I’ll leave this alone for now. I might just make another page about the new classes soon (never-ish).

    

Launcher*

AGAIN, I know you guys are all like oh it’s Gunner, but watch The King’s Avatar okay.
