    With the Sqi-Revamp approaching, I think it would be a great time to explore some interesting new attributes for the Ghostdancer Staff. Before making any suggestions myself however, I'd like to share my personal thoughts on the Soul Linker class. Its design, as a class, is fundamentally flawed for a couple of reasons, both of which stem from underwhelming party utility/benefit. Firstly, its party utility (Spirit Links) can be fulfilled before the party actually engages in combat, making the Soul Linker somewhat of a buffing npc that you leave in town. Additionally, a few of its links are fairly obsolete later on in the game, which isn't a problem necessarily, but this fact does support my point. Secondly, despite dealing high damage with Esma, it is still a single-target dps class with very little meaningful CC and versatility when comparing it with wizards/hunters. Yes, Estun has a chance to stun 1 target for 2 seconds, and yes Eswoo can shrink 1 target for at most 7 seconds, but these skills are still single target abilities that have little impact for your party and can even hinder party survivability if used poorly. One might think, "But Soul Linker is a support class, why should it compete or be compared to classes like Wizard or Hunters or any other DPS." The reality is that Soul Linker is neither a support or a dps class but an alt-tab character that applies a buff or two on your main before it goes on an adventure. This isn't to say that Soul Linker *can't* go on any adventures by itself. I understand that it can because I exclusively main Soul Linker and have gotten it far enough into the game where I can observe its viability in late game content. Now that I've gotten that baggage out of the way, we can have some fun conversations regarding new attributes! Since my goal for the class is to have it stray away from being the buff-bot that it currently is, I don't think buffing the Spirit Link bonuses is the right idea. Instead, I think that adding bonuses that either increase party-wide dps or just Soul Linker's dps is more beneficial and easier to achieve. Possible Attributes! Fighting Chant: increases both atk and matk based on how many party members are on the map. (exact same effect but also increases matk) Could you imagine an Esma doing 100% more dmg because there are 10 party mates on the map? Mmmmm, now that's therapeutic. Kaina: Effect of SP consumption mitigation amplified. Might be a lackluster bonus, but it would still increase Esma uptime because if you're fighting an MVP, or farming in general, Esma really burns through your SP, might also decrease the dependency on GEC shoes, so a new shoe slot can open up as a result from this bonus? Kaahi: Each time you're successfully attacked, your defense also increases based on the skill's level for a few seconds. (If there is a way that this can only work on a SL then that would be better, or else it's probs is OP) After each hit, having your def increase by a % amount (up to a certain cap) for a few seconds could make SLs viable tanks, very interesting! Kaupe: Effect lasts until two attacks are dodged. (Same effect except Kaupe lasts for two successful hits instead of one). (If there is a way that this can only work on a SL then that would be better, or else it's probs is OP) This would greatly improve SL survivability when dealing with large amounts of mobs or powerful enemies. Eswoo: Effect has full effect on boss monsters. Eswoo: Enables use of Esma for the next 3 seconds. Eske: Halves a monster's def and mdef while increasing its atk by 300%. Works on Boss and Miniboss monsters. (exact same effect but also halves mdef and makes it work on boss/miniboss monsters) This change will not only boost SL's dmg against high mdef targets, but could also allow for some new, funky magic dps comps! Eska: In addition to increasing monster mdef and def, it also reduces aspd and movement. (puts the monster fully into a Steel Body state) This change would make it much easier to tank and control MVP slaves. Estun: Stun works on MVPs for half the normal stun duration. Not sure if this is possible to code, but it sure would be interesting! Just throwing it out there. Esma: Increase skill damage by 50%. SL's usefulness drops off dramatically if it cannot kill a monster in 1-3 Esmas. Increasing Esma's skill damage will help combat the ASPD: Increase by 25%. SL's Esma damage is very good, but the class' DPS is extremely lacking. An Increase to ASPD should help mitigate this problem. Free Cast: Enables use of Max Lv Free Cast. Enabling the use of Free Cast would make SL gameplay more fluid and would increase their survivability against pulls of monsters while not directly increasing their offensive prowess. Dodge: Enables use of Max Lv Dodge. Enabling the use of Dodge should help SL avoid being flinch-locked, allowing a safe distance from monsters to be maintained. Mind Breaker: Enables use of Max Lv Mind Breaker. These suggestions are coming from a strictly PvE perspective. I have no experience in RO PvP. I encourage everyone to respond to this thread with their own suggestions and viewpoints on how to make Ghostdancer a better SQI weapon. Soul Linker is such a unique and interesting class and I hope to see more Soul Linker mains in the future! Cheers! ๐Ÿ•ท๏ธ Ahuzahr /\(Oo';;'oO)/\ ๐Ÿ•ท๏ธ

    Hello TalonRO! Tomorrow is going to be a special day for me. (Almost) 10 years ago I made my account on TalonRO and I realized I've never even introduced myself, so... Greetings! I'm Chris(tiaan) from The Netherlands, I'm a software tester by profession and I play a professor named "Akrab." Akrab & Rajah, art by Conscendo/Conporings Akrab of Morroc is a charismatic scholar who yearns to learn and feels compelled to teach. As a young student, he was blinded by a ricochet ice chip from one of his own backfiring spells. Determined to complete his scholarly training, he forced himself to cope with his handicap in unusual ways. Where being blind would be a grave disadvantage to most casters, Akrab had found a way to overcome his disability: by listening to audible cues given by his seeing-eye leopard โ€œRajah,โ€ he could again navigate the world around him. By physically touching his opponents he could once more guide his elemental magic. Despite losing the ability to see, he harbors an unmatched inner calmness, needed for a dance he had dubbed โ€œThe Flow of Wind and Flame.โ€ Akrab has made it his purpose in life to teach aspiring adventurers, spending most of his time and earnings to help others perfect their own techniques. My time spent on TalonRO wouldn't have been the same if not for the many wonderful people playing on this server. As a thank you for all the laughs and good times, I would like to give something back! Tomorrow (12th of November) at 10:00pm server time I will be hosting a small two-part "event" with some prizes to win! Anyone is welcome to join, the event will likely take up to an hour. You can find me at my favorite place in Rune Midgard: Clock Tower Floor 2 (blue highlighted area,) on November 12th at 10:00pm server time. Hope to see you there! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    Pallas and I spent some time at Kokomo Beach today. There were cute little seals and disgusting mobsters all over, it was like two completely opposite worlds colliding with one another, pretty fascinating. Utilizing the power of the butterfly wings as well as the Kafra's warp magic, we were able to traverse back and forth between here and Gonryun, so I was able to spend time with family as well as train. It's quite amazing, really. When I was younger my father told me of things like this, how magical objects and beings with powers were all over making life simpler, but it wasn't until I ventured out into the world myself that I would get to experience and understand any of it. I shouldn't act as if everything is normal though... A few weeks ago I spent some time in Glast Heim Prison. It's quite a a scary place, but I'd been there as a Hunter, so it wasn't too much to deal with that I hadn't already dealt with.. I did manage to get knocked out by a horde of zombie prisoners. Who knows how long I'd been out, and if it weren't for a Priestess coming along my unconscious body I'd surely be a goner by now.. That's not even the weird part though... While I was out I remember a dream... In that dream I couldn't move, and I heard the voice of a woman coming from what seemed to be the abyss that my body floated in. "This world... back then... the Holy War..." What she said is somewhere in my mind, but I definitely recall that much.. The Holy War... Is it something that happened... something that is going to happen..? It's all I'd been thinking about while hunting lately, and even while at Kokomo it was hard to keep my mind off of it. Hopefully I forget all about it soon enough, but knowing me, my curiosity will only draw me in deeper... Anyways, it's nightfall, Pallas and I have to be up early tomorrow morning. Our journey together has been great so far, and I won't let some strange memory of a dream ruin it. -BiLLy

    It finally happened... Ever since I left Gonryun, I've had one thing on my mind: To become stronger. I knew I'd come to see the day of standing face to face with a Valkyrie. I trembled in her presence, because what if she told me I truly wasn't good enough? What if it was her will to see me die right there in front of her? My journey would've been for naught, or maybe I'm wrong.. The journey itself was a blast! I met new friends, discovered new places, fought countless monsters, and even started my own guild after hours of proving myself worthy by hunting the Emperium stone! Yes, the journey of this former Hunter was amazing, but here he begins a new journey! After a long road, countless hardships, and days of grinding I've been granted the title of Sniper by the Gods themselves! My newly attained title comes with even greater power, and more responsibility. I have to help others just as others have helped me. Without people like DX, Tunnel, and Za Priestess among others, I would not be who I am today! So now, after resting in Gonryun for a few days, I've traveled back to my favorite training spot in Louyang to regain my footing, as well as practice my new skills, because I plan on using them to find the Dagger of Edda one day... When will that day come? Who knows? I've realized that it's all about the journey, not the destination, so I pray this road is as bumpy as the last, because that chaos will surely make me even stronger!
