Node Changes


To help build the AW Map and push it in a more driven RPG direction, we are now proud to say that we have come up with another lane that will replace the aging Power Control lane. We will revisit it in the future, but untill then, we got something crazy cooking on the stove. It’s the new and improved Skill Defender lane with many new nodes to support this vision.

The following buffs were made to support this vision.


Second Wind (Damage Reflection) - 3:
Whenever the Defender Purifies or Cleanses a Debuff, they gain an Damage Reflection Passive for 8 seconds dealing back 50% of the damage dealt by the Attacker.


Second Wind (Unblockable) - 3:
Whenever the Defender Purifies or Cleanses a Debuff, they gain an Unblockable Charge. If the Defender reaches 3 Unblockable Charges, they gain an Unblockable Passive for 8 seconds.


Power Creep - 3:
Each time the Defender Purifies or Cleanses a Debuff, they gain a Charge that permanently increases their Combat Power Rate by 7%. This goes up to a maximum of 20 Charges.


Winded - 3:
Each time the Defender is knocked down, the Defender suffers an Armor Break Debuff, decreasing their Armor Rating by 50 for 7 seconds.


Standing in Fear:
While close to the Defender, the Defender gains a Fatigue Debuff every 3 seconds, reducing their Critical Rating permanently. Staying far away from the Defender causes these Fatigue effects to gradually fall off.
