    Mystic looks really good but a lot of people seem to want to play it. Since I love to play several characters, I will definitely make a Mystic alt though! i also wonder if the secondary weapons will have any special purpose? And is the specialisation just something you can change in combat? I thought it was more like two more classes to spec into :(. Would have made for more variety.

    from what i have seen, it looks more like an item that may boost your powers or an item that grants you a special ability. but, i am not to sure. my knowledge of Korean is, how you say, really bad.

    It does look like a lot of people want to play it, but that might not last all the way till end game. Atm it is the smallest/cutest looking class so that might be a draw, but so very often I see people start off as a healer then decide to switch to a dps class because they either found healing trickier than they expected or not worth the extra effort just for the cuteness factor. :p

    Hi

    thought I would put a link here for completeness, the skill bar in the link below gives an interactive skill bar which clicking on a skill gives a translation of that skill. To change between healing and DPS stances click on the left hand side of the skill bar.

    https://www.ascendants.org/mystic2


    Interestingly in the Kr CBTs there were not that many Mystics around (a few, but not a load), the class has some nuances to play, such as having to build effects on mobs before activating the kill skill. The targeting system makes healing difficult which many people complained about, i.e. the soft lack system will very easy change your active target at the most unfortunate of times.

    The Different weapons contribute to the different stances and stats in a variety of ways. For those unclear of the system, all classes have two stances, which for the mystic are a healing and a DPS stance. The stances can be changed very easily by pressing "g" key even while in combat. Although of course this does not change your gear or rhinestone load out, so some builds will be better optimised for a specific stance.

    Well if they're not doing TERA style targeting then they need to just let people use tab targeting. Enough games have done the current method to know it's terrible. It's a hybrid system that will have targeting issues for anyone. Honestly it'll need to be changed or I guarantee nobody will heal and those who only heal will just skip this game entirely.

    But I have a question about that - in the comments of this article, the writer mentioned that other journalists were able to toggle a tab target mode. Is that not the case in KR right now? It sounds like we'd get both options here which would make it so the game has two modes like Bless and Revelation Online.

    Hi,
    Currently there are no CBTS running for AIR.

    Toggling targets with tab, i.e. to switching targets with TAB has not been possible in the demos/CBTs presented to date. Many articles have got the very basic mechanics quite incorrect, although the article you present does not say nor discuss combat in terms of TAB targeting. That discussion is only presented in the comments section. In fact under that article the author (lotrlore) does respond to one of the comments and states "I played I could not get tab targeting to work." He eludes to "other journos", but no response is present from anyone claiming to have used tan targeting.

    Below is the target selection methodology guide from this very site (which is a direct translation of the Bluehole guide)
    https://forum.airthegame.com/index.php?threads/preview-core-mechanics-controls.235/
    1. When you turn your camera toward enemies, the closest within 18 meters will be selected.
    2. Looking at other enemies will change the selected target.
    3. When viewing an empty area, selected targets are released after 2 seconds.
    This is a direct translation from the KR guide for players in the December CBT. And this is also from my own experience to how combat worked. TAB will LOCK the current target, pressing TAB again will release the current target, it does not select a second target. This methodology for combat was present at GSTAR and in both CBTs 1&2 during December.

    Although the game is under going redevelopment and could change quite drastically.

    Can I lock target on ally? Or tab can lock only enemy?

    Yes tab will lock the ally current target in the right stance, but locking was difficult in the CBT, I think because of lag. An issue would arise whrn trying to target say the melee tank, it was very easy to end up locking on one of the melee dps, if a dps cut across the field of view between healer and tank just before lock is achieved then the active target would switch to the DOS and lock on them.

    My feedback SEA OBT
    currently my roleplay is mystic so because of this my feedback will be more focused on the healer. In a general context, mystic has an excellent progression, a character that where I am (lvl 35) is almost completely independent, almost needing no help in even the strongest elite mobs. A really nice class to play. So I do not see many problems with the DPS instance. However I see some problems in the class while using the instance of healing.

    • Firstly I miss a target so the healer can focus his healing on a specific person, such as the tank, because in a GvG or raid, it will be very problematic to be able to heal a specific person in the middle of a sea of people. I believe that adding TAB TARGET to mystic would be a huge evolution for the class.

    • I have missed group control several times in the healing field. I recognize that it is cowardly of me to compare AIR with other games, however I need to do it. Ex. the Cleric of the AION that had an huge group control, gigantic range of healing abilities, or being more modest, BLESS mystic, that had great area healing abilities.

    • I miss instant healing single and AoE, because mystic have just 4 healing skill, 3 usable and 2 for self healing being them:
    Screenshot_16.png
    in my opinion, is a good healing skill, but isnt i properly a healing skill, but a life stabilizer, what I understand as a healing skill is that ability that heals a lot of life, which it does not do, it works like a HoT, and this ability is only for ally, being impossible to self heal with it.

    Screenshot_19.png
    this bird has a really good cure, it can cure from 50 to 80% of life, but there is a great variability in it, because we could say that it acts like a projectile, there is the skill time until reaching the target, and the variable is the target, because he has to be stopped to receive. if the target is moving, jumping, or whatever it is doing, the bird may not arrive or the ally will not receive the cure.
    Screenshot_20.png
    this ability is the primary healing ability, it has a very good cure (30 ~ 50% life), but its CD is relatively high and the healer needs to stop to use it, which to my knowledge, a healer under no circumstances must stand still, is a problem on the battlefield. And this is also one of two self healing skills (the bird is another).
    Screenshot_21.png
    this ability is extremely powerful, has a very strong cure, but will not use it at random. it has a very high CD, and costs 50% of energy (CP)

    I've been seeing healer in forums at the beginning (2017) and apparently mystic was a little more focused on healing than currently, would it be possible to turn it up a bit this current mystic to the next more ancient mystic?

    All in all, what I wanted to say is that tank is tank, DPS is DPS, but MYSTIC is not healer, but it looks like a healer sidekick these days.
