The next major update for the Russian version of Action MMORPG Lost Ark will feature a new Soul Eater class. For this reason, the publishers decided to share details with players and also published a new gameplay trailer.
The Soul Eater is the fourth female class of the Assassin archetype, who fights in close combat with a scythe. She has three types of skills: “Medium”, “Scythe Master” and “Harbinger of Death”. By hitting enemies with them and with regular attacks, she fills up to three soul stones, which are spent on using the Harbinger of Death skills. In addition, by using all three types of skills, the Soul Eater fills the Incarnation gauge. At full scale, she can take on the form of the Death Avatar (Z), which greatly enhances her stats.
Death Avatar Skin increases attack speed by 10%, movement speed and critical strike chance by 20%, and also enhances the skills of the Harbinger of Death. In addition, enemies within a 7-meter radius are inflicted with the Curse of Swift Death for 10 seconds, increasing damage taken by 6%.
The following class engravings enhance the energy of the Soul Eater:
- Pale Moon — Chance to inflict a critical hit increases by 3/8/14%. When using a soul stone, the Incarnation scale is filled by 5%, which brings it closer to the appearance of the avatar of Death. By accepting it, the heroine restores all Harbinger of Death skills, increases their damage by 5/10/15% and reduces their cooldown by 50/60/75%.
- Bonds of fate — When using the skills of the “Harbinger of Death”, the Incarnation scale is replaced by the Obedience scale. When the Obedience gauge is filled, the skills of the “Harbinger of Death” become unavailable for 12 seconds, and the skills of the “Scythe Master” are strengthened. To use the Harbinger of Death skills after filling the Obedience gauge, you must spend all three soul stones. In this case, the Harbinger of Death’s skills will receive additional damage bonuses. Scythe Master and Death Harbinger’s damage bonus is 20/30/40%, and Death’s Harbinger’s supported skills have a 25/30/50% damage bonus.
The Soul Eater has two Awakening skills:
- The Last Judgment – Soul Eater and Death’s Shadow team up to unleash a series of four strikes. Finally, he delivers a powerful blow, knocking opponents down.
- Event Horizon — Creates a sphere of dark energy around itself that deals damage to enemies. The sphere gradually expands, attracting enemies and striking them seven times. It eventually explodes, dealing damage and knocking down opponents.
The update with the new Soul Eater class will be released on November 22, 2023.
