Kinda nice one? I think... Cataphracts get their deserved buff, mages get their more or less deserved nerfs.

However something still bothers me. Like that monk got a major buff probably because this class being totally overhyped and popular thus getting way more complaints. If this is IMC's way of balancing my favorites aren't going to receive anything in ages ahead :hmm:

I wonder if Sabdu normal attack refers to attack from main body of the spirit...

Also resets for skills and stats appear relatively inexpensive. We don't know the price of iCoin, but if we compare this to respawn costs and new barrack costs, it looks fine. I really wish there was also a class progression reset, but this will likely never be available.

Ohhh... Barbarian got nerfed. Not surprising after so many complained. Wonder if IMCGames gave in to the pressure or they actually reviewed the skills and said "hey wait a minute... this is very strong."

The only reason I played Linker on CBT and was looking forward this class is because of the Joiny Penalty skill. I always thought it should link more because it has an annoying cooldown and damaging spells have even longer cooldowns, making things very slow to kill due to the high CD.

Now I don't think I will play Linker anymore.
