**My comment**:

1. All skills have the requirement of lvl 79 culti (Aware of Vacuity). This just means that all skills are at least lvl 79.. Highly likely that most skills are lvl 95+ however..

2. I don't really like any of the psy's skills tbh.. They seem to be kind of more into PvP.. Some psy's skill I considered okay-ish to get:

*Veil of Shadow - Order of Luminance
Making squad member untargetable for 3.5 to 7.5 secs (Veil of Shadow) can be useful in tough situation.. This skill do have a weakness in terms of chi cost (299 chi = 2 sparks + 99 chi, which is my max chi available atm).. If I pull this out, I may save my party but I don't have psychic will to protect myself (psychic will cost 1 spark)..

*Spirit Phalanx - Order of Shroud
Making a target immune to all damage but unable to do anything? What is anything, can't attack, can't move? Totally sealed? or this could be just a copycat of Veno's lvl 79 skill.. Dev just add all hp recovered at the end of immunity.. High spark cost = 2 sparks which is a downside also..

*Summon - not gonna be out this patch
Summon a party member instantly next to you.. Door mule ftw? Might consider getting Spectral Haze on Psy so I don't have to fly everywhere on my Mystic and just summon her.. orrr I can summon Mel Mel too =)

3. Three of Mystic's skill that are absolutely good and I wanna get:

*Invigorate - Order of Corona
Increase damage by 20%, stack with other buffs.. This skill is totally desirable by aps squad.. It lasts for 30 mins which means they can just get a Mystic and kick him/her after buff -sadface-.. But this skill just makes Mystic more wanted in squad at least..

*Verdant Blessing - Order of Luminance
Basically party form of Empowered Vigor (psy's lvl 44 skill).. It's a nice skill to have.. Obviously when this skill is out, I'm not gonna use Vigor on psy anymore.. I definitely put away Vigor at lvl 1, no point to max Vigor when Mystic has a better form of the said skill..

*Mass Ressurection - not available in this patch
Party form of Res.. No more ressing party members one by one.. Exp loss is reduced by 95% (if Demon Mystic can have this, I might be going demon since sage res does the same thing but one by one cast)..

Okay-ish skill:
*Gaia's Blessing - not available in this patch
Recover hp of party member for 12 secs.. HP recovery is every 4 secs.. This skill is kind of bullcrap compared to Psy's Bubble of Life.. I'm not sure if it's even stack with Psy's Bubble.. Psy's Bubble heals for more hp, faster channeling, and doesn't require chi/spark.. This skill also require 1 spark to cast, which imo it's better used on Vital herb.. Vital Herb lasts longer and has shorter cooldown.. Vital also recover more hp on the tanker (barb)..

L> Mel Mel opinion on Barb, Veno, Cleric's new skills.. Archer and Sin Review is welcome too ^.^

Also, 10 person squads!

"The squad limit has been raised to 10 but not for old instances. The only real instance that supports 10 people is the new "Endless Universe".

You can also have 10 person squads in the world map, in shared maps like Lothranis and OHT, and in TW."


It took me 30mins to download patch on Chris's pc... 2hrs on my lappy... 4hrs on my old pc... and surprisingly 5hrs on my new one, but that's probably because I was playing music as I was reading and waiting for the patch to finish.

Just as that guy predicted on the patch notes, the facebook connect is down so you can't get Jones/O'Malley blessing. I hope it doesn't last long... I want to stock up some more. :x

Find out that the new Psy's skill is suck.. The free skill: Veil of Shadow (makes the user and the squad member untargetable for x seconds based on soulforce) only works in PvP.. Some Psy testing it out on mobs and the skill doesn't do anything.. Plus, the skill has 299 chi cost which makes it useless.. 2 sparking Red Tide is already useless; Dev keeps adding more useless skill..

Skill that is based on Soulforce:
DO NOTE:
Soulforce does nothing at lower level (yes, absolutely nothing useful).. The only thing that makes soulforce worthwhile is to refine the equips.. Depends on how the skill works, adding a little bit of soulforce also does nothing.. +2 on refinement means +8 soulforce.. +1 refinement does nothing to soulforce (people say it's +1 for +1 refine, but I tested it out and my soulforce doesn't change).. Don't rely on soulforce skills too much cause I personally don't.. I left out all soulforce based skills at lvl 1.. Only considering lvling it up once I got my refinement up and sage..

Re-thinking what I said earlier about Orders since some of the ones I want are tradeable, I can get them on a different character than the character intended to use them.

Archer - Luminance
Galvanic Charge - tradeable, veno or barb can get that for me.
Arrow Inferno - untradeable
Whisper Shot - unavailable for now =[
Leap left/right - Corona, I'm really unsure as to if this is helpful enough to get or not.

Assassin - Shroud
Share the Stealth - it stacks with sin stealth skill so I get 150 stealth levels and can stealth past ? mobs
Toxic Torrent - Unavailable for now =[
The other skills are either PVP oriented or soulforce based.

Cleric - Luminance/Shroud
Pious Blessing - Shroud - can save a target from a killing blow for 8 sec, recover 50% hp if successful
Ancestor's Blessing - Luminance - Don't lose exp upon dying
I will probably see how much it is to get the skills and do the cheapest one first, then switch as neither skill is tradeable.

Veno - Shroud
Natural Synergy - Shroud - Pet's attack speed and accuracy by 100% and you and pet immune to negative status for 10 seconds.
Blazing Barrier - Luminance - Reduces all damage dealt to you by 30%, and
reflects 100% of all melee damage back at the attacker for 15 seconds.
Natural Synergy is more of a priority because I already have a "save my ass" skill.

Barb - Luminance/Shroud
Stomp of the King - Unavailable for now =[
Blood Rush - Luminance - Each time you take damage, your Physical Attack will increase by
8% of weapon damage. Stacks up to 20 times and lasts for 60 seconds.
Berserker's Wrath - Unavailable for now
Cornered Beast - Shroud - Marks you with the strength of the beast for 150 seconds.
If you would take lethal damage during this time, the Mark is consumed, restoring 45% health, generating 2 Sparks, and removing all negative effects placed upon you.

It really seems like Corona has nothing that I want or just PVP or Soulforce skills.
I may or may not go Corona on archer to get the leap left/right, but only if I find evidence that it's useful in PvE and whether or not it can be used in dungeons.

I'll probably change my mind again by the time I get lv95, haha.

Haha, Barb friend go Corona and he quits from the Order already.. He only joins cause people say to him that Corona is good for Barb.. Oh well..

So far, I plan on Shroud on Psy and Luminance on Mystic as first Order..

Psychic
*Spirit Phalanx - Order of Shroud
basically like Expel (Genie skill) with the addition of hp recovery at the end of the buff, from what the description says..

other skills are sucks.. Veil of Shadow does not work in PvE and cost 3 sparks (ew?)

Mystic
*Mass Ressurection - Order of Luminance
basically SAGE Ressurection going squad.. Same effect as SAGE Res..

*Verdant Blessing - Order of Luminance
Increase the HP recovery from skills.. Not sure about charm cooldown and whatnot.. People say that this skill doesn't stack with Empowered Vigor (Psy's skill).. But I have yet to see if it's true or not..

*Invigoration - Order of Corona
Increase the damage dealing by squad by 20% more dmg.. Skill is stacked with other buffs.. This buff is a new kind of buff and it's pretty good so far..

Free lvl 80 skills (lol still cost 105k coins but w/e), while I am at it I'ma just buy on my Mystic:
*Veil of Shadow (Psy - Luminance)
*Transfusion (Myst - Luminance)

I would stay at Luminance for a bit on Mystic to get Mass Res and Verdant Blessing, then switch to Corona for Invigoration.. Switch back to Luminance to buy HP Gems.. Psy stays at Shroud since none of the other skills are good anyways.. Psy stays at Shroud to buy m attk gems also..

Why not going Corona first on Mystic? Thing is the skill is lvl 100 and it takes 7 weeks to get just 1 skill.. I wanna start daily quest from lvl 95 so by the time 14 weeks are over, I hopefully get to lvl 100 and can buy 2 skills.. If I do Corona first, it's kind of a BS to get to lvl 100 from lvl 95 in 7 weeks.. I end up having more prestige leftover and all I can buy is phys attk gem (lol?).. Plus, there are more skills in Order of Luminance for Mystic compared to Corona.. I just don't wanna waste my prestige by having leftover..
