● Fixed an issue where the skill description for the ‘Pirate’s Life For Me’ did not show the full skill effects.

Succession Corsair could remain protected with Invincibility effects by continually comboing her mermaid transforming mareca skills and deal tons of damage at the same time. Thanks to this combination of protection and damage, which gave her a rather huge advantage over other classes, we decided to adjust her accordingly. While she retains her powerful damage, her Invincibility window has been shortened so that Corsair will need to be more strategic with her skills.
