BERSERKER
For the Succession Berserker, a broader range of combos has been introduced in PvE situations where Prime: Raging Thunder cannot be used due to instances such as the skill being on cooldown.

We’ve now made it so you can combo with Ultimate: Frenzied Destroyer, Prime: Devastation, or Prime: Ancient Wave along with Prime: Beastly Wind Slash and Prime: Fierce Strike in Beast Form, thus granting a larger arsenal of Down Attack skills in those monster zones.

  • Fixed the issue where your attack wouldn't deal damage when using the skill while holding ←/→ (A/D) keys.
 
LAHN
The Awakened Lahn relied heavily on her grab (Soul Raid) in PvP, and if she failed, she had to wait for the skill to come off cooldown as it was difficult to attack her opponent safely with any other skill. Also, even if she did succeed in grabbing her target, it was still difficult to deal meaningful damage unless she was facing off against a single enemy. Hence we increased the damage dealt with skills such as [Taunting Death], [Flow: Mangler], [Tailspin], and [Blood Moon Twist], and also made it possible to maintain a defensive effect with [Taunting Death] - [Flow: Mangler] while dealing damage. We also changed [Core: Eradication] to now grant Super Armor during the skill, thus granting another opportunity to strike Lahn's opponents without need of a grab.
