When Legacy of the Hongmoon Clan arrives in Blade & Soul on March 13, it will introduce the new talent system — resulting in revamped class specialization. All eleven classes will be on the receiving end of a major overhaul, and NCSoft wanted to prepare players for what’s to come. So, they’ve provided information on changes to each of the classes in a series of blog posts.
The first post covers class specialization for three of the classes: Blade Master, Destroyer, and Summoner. The second addresses four more: Kung Fu Master, Assassin, Blade Dancer, and Warlock. Of course, this leaves seven more classes to go over, so players should expect to see information on those sometime soon.
Of course, you’ll want to check out both posts to get individual information on the changes to each of the classes, but there is some general information that applies to all of them. All the classes will need to hit level 55 — HM 7 and complete the quest “Legacy of the Hongmoon Clan” in order to gain access to the new talent system. Once they’ve done this, players can choose a specialization and select five talents within it to use on their character.
Of note is the fact that players will be able to swap between the two specializations or change talents whenever they’re not in combat. So, you don’t have to worry about being stuck doing something you hate — or just get bored with.
