New Skills

With the Argon Queen update, warriors and lancers get new skills for their already-impressive arsenals. From Reaping Slash to Wallop, read on for how you’ll be even tougher and deadlier when The Argon Queen arrives.

Tanking evolves

New Resource: Resolve

Many of the new warrior and lancer skills spend a new resource: Resolve. Rather than spending MP for your defensive skills, you’ll spend Resolve instead—and have more MP for your offensive attacks.

Warrior: Now a stronger tank


Dodging around the battlefield is an effective way to avoid a boss monster’s damage, but now it’s not the only way. Many of the warrior’s new skills give you greater battlefield control by letting you tank in one place.

  • Cross Parry: Raise both swords to block an enemy’s attacks. Works only in defensive stance, and lasts as long as the skill is engaged. Drains Resolve while active.
  • Smoke Flanker: Summons a creature made of smoke at your location, then moves you behind your enemy as the smoke flanker takes over your aggro.
  • Reaping Slash: A spinning attack that deals extra damage when your Edge stack is more than three.

Lancer: More agile and aggressive


The lancer has always excelled at fighting whatever’s in front of them, but now we’ve added ways for them to deal with attacks from the sides and rear. We’ve also improved their efficiency in solo play.

  • Wallop: You jump forward and slam your shield against the ground, knocking down nearby enemies. Works even better after a Charging Lunge, Shield Barrage, Debilitate, Shield Counter, or Spring Attack.
  • Backstep: Leap backward to get away from an enemy...perhaps in preparation for a charge!
