I am so in Aion.

New Cleric Uprising: Voice of Destruction

Saw this shot today. It’s basically system log of this 마티니 guy killing 15 guys at the same time with the Cleric DP skill [Voice of Destruction]. Apparently 3 more died after this shot was taken after trying to stay alive with pots.

[Voice of Destruction I] Lvl 40 Cleric DP Skill

Does single 753 fire damage to one target in 25m and up to 18 targets within 20m then 655 fire damage every 3 seconds for 57 seconds. Also reduces healing effect by 50%

Instant cast, 4,000 DP cost, 1 hr cooldown

That’s total of 13198 damage in 1 minute up to 19 people at the same time. A lvl 45 Templar has 5.5k hp. This is an insanely overpowered skill. As more and more clerics are hitting 40, this is becoming more and more obvious.

Well.. NCsoft loves healers.

  1. That’s an awesome skill. Note the 1hr cd. It’s going to be so fun to pop that in the middle of an abyss war. Still pretty balanced tbh.

  2. The DP cost is pretty HUGE. The instant cast is shit, though. What the fuck.

    But hey, it’s a Divine Power skill. Those are supposed to kick ass. They won’t get used all that often, probably.

  3. I was reading over this skill in a translated skill list for clerics, and praying to god that it was translated incorrectly. i guess it wasn’t. The initial 753 fire damage is ok, but the after damage is way too insane. 655 fire damage every 3 seconds for 57 seconds?! I don’t even want to calculate how much total damage that would be. So the message i’m getting is basically, if your’e within 25m of a cleric who uses this your screwed. Hope this is fixed.

  4. It has 4k req. DP and 1hr cd.

    Chanters have a same OP skill (from stigma) which can put to sleep a whole group for 20sec! 20sec!

    Each class have some kind of OP DP skill which could be nerfed, but then a lot of fun would die with them.
    It is annoying getting killed by this, the only problem here is with the amount of ppl it affects.

    What will people say when the last 3 AP ranked players appear with their incredible skills? Now those are extreme ones:))

  6. This skill is awefull >.>

    You dont even understand what happen, you start to see all your teammate dying around you xD
    and then its your turn :/

    I dont understand NCsoft to add a so overpowered skill for a healing class, even the mage DP is less powerfull…

  7. I really wonder what was going on when they implemented this skill, did they test this at all?

  8. That is just really disturbing news. I agree with Azania on this, it seems like they just let an employee decide: “hey which skill do you want in the game?”. Offcourse you’d suggest something like this.

    I can already see sieges, both sides engage into battle, cleric does VoD and bam you can say goodbye to your whole party ;).

  9. Even if this skill costs 4k DP points and has a 1h cooldown it’s still too overpowered (especially for a cleric lol o_0).

    The DoT effect has to be lowered so you can at least be able to escape it by pot-ing yourself. Or lower the damage overall. Or, since it’s obviously instant kill, make it hit only one target.

    Well .. I don’t really mind it .. but … you know … it’s a cleric..

  10. Let’s just think about it… even if there is an 1h cd… if one guild only consists of clerics… let’s say 60 or so. Then they could fire that skill EVERY MINUTE oO”
    WTF! That’s insane!

  12. Lol… 13k+ dmg overall, what the heck are those healers or dpsers? the 1 hour cooldown is a stupid way to balance a crazy OP skill. Will helaers heal or dps after this?

  13. i assume u ppl know that DP skill can be instantly charged to 2000 with food? clerics also have dmg spell that does 500-600dmg and a 1.8k crit spell. play the game before saying its all fine. i;m rolling one in NA if the classes are left where its at in Kr right now. the balance issue is fixed when its fixed.

  14. I don’t get it. Is it a ground targeted DoT or a DoT ailment on the players?
