"We spent the most effort in revamping the combat system! We’ve re-examined almost every class’ skills and restructured their composition and effects.
-Players need to pick two stance skills out of six, as well as four general skills that will go well with their class. Using these skills in combos during combat will lead to extra effects (1. Select a stance, 2. Use your starting skill 3. Use a skill combo). -In combat, there is more action and it has gotten more difficult due to the new dynamic combo system. Depending on how good a player is at making combos, they can bring out the full potential of their class.
Restructuring Growth Mechanics
-We have rebuilt the mechanics behind both skill acquisition and skill leveling. In the Steam version, in addition to advancing your equipment, learning and leveling up skills are main parts of growing your character. -There is a variety of ways to obtain the gems that are used to level skills. As we aim to avoid P2W, the amount of money you spend on the game will not affect the amount of gems you can get.
Party Buffs Join a party for the full Bless experience!
-We believe that the best way to enjoy any MMORPG is by playing with others. As an incentive for players to play the game with a variety of people, we have decided to introduce party benefits! -Depending on the number of members, classes, and races of the party members, the party leader can choose one combat effect and one lifestyle (non-combat) effect from a selection to be applied to party members! With this feature we hope that not only those who enjoy combat, but also those who prefer the lifestyle (non-combat) aspects of MMORPGs can enjoy playing with other players!
User Friendly Monetization Everyone will love our in-game shops!
-Along with having no P2W in the Steam version, Bless Online’s monetization system will be user friendly. -Content token shop: We have designed it so that players can use content tokens (special in-game currency earned by just playing the game) to purchase functional items. -Lumena shop: Players can use Lumena (in-game currency purchased using real money) to buy a variety of convenience and cosmetic items. -Also, with the addition of the Lumena Exchange Center (name is WIP), players will be able to convert their content tokens into Lumena. This feature will allow even players who only buy the game (and nothing more!) the ability to use the Lumena shop to purchase convenience and cosmetic items. Find out more, for example how we upgraded the initial Bless experience when starting, later today on our Dev Blog #3"https://steamcommunity.com/app/681660/discussions/0/1696043806572253600/
This was posted on discord , and it seems we should find more info later today !
It was a very good read and it seems combat is much more "engaged" in the version of Steam , which is nice. Also, very glad to hear about the shop.
Looking forward for today's (more) News!
