Just before Episode 10 and Kai the Archer (link) arrive at Mabinogi Heroes’ Korean server, Karok is getting updated with his new toy, I mean a new secondary weapon, the blaster. It is equipped in the right hand gauntlet slot, which will become a primary weapon as a whole.
As seen in the trailer above, this new weapon is focused on both ranged bombardment and heavy melee damage, dishing out huge damage with skills used from the rage meter gathered from attacks. The weaving dodge and weaving attacks seem pretty cool, reminding my of the Dempsey Roll (if anyone watches boxing).
While this is the major update, some tweaks were also added as with most Nexon games, including new security windows, new game pad control mode and new party functions. From what I know, players are really getting impatient for Episode 10. How can you blame them?
The image below pretty much sums up the new Blaster weapon. It is like adding icing on a cake with the additional explosive damage after landing a physical blow to targets. Awesome.
