Skul Update 1.5.2 Patch Notes – June 15, 2022

Changes Made

Map and NPC

Through the recent update many new items were added in the game but the number of items users’ could obtain remained the same. This led to a problem that it became difficult for users to combine items as they wished.
Considering the characteristics of Skul which allows users to possess a limited number of items, the recent update caused the level of difficulty to increase.
Therefore by this patch we lowered the item price and the restock price of the Black Market Collector. We took this action for an immediate patch but we don’t think this is the best solution.
In the next update we are going to find a more fun way for users to obtain items considering the total number of items and the difficulty of gaining items.

  • For all stages, the price of items sold by the Collector will decrease
  • For all stages, the restock price of items sold by the Collector will decrease
  • When restocking repeatedly, restock price increase rate will decrease
  • Amount of gold required by the field NPC ‘Little Gust’ & ‘Lion’s Sword’ will decrease
  • Change in Physical Attack increase rate of Grace of Jealousy against the NPC Evil Druid of the Demon King’s Castle: 50% → 80%
  • The issue of the Poison Gas Trap in the event map ‘Dangerous Box’ applying higher damage from time to time is fixed

Skull

As we were preparing for the Major Overhaul for Skul’s Items, we focused a lot on the Frost Skull’s boss battle.

Stopping the boss with Freeze is certainly a cool thing but if Freeze is used too frequently, the boss can’t do anything and just gets defeated inside the ice.
When this happens too frequently, it might reduce the tension and excitement of the battle.

Before this patch, the new Freeze system was more than enough to neutralize the boss considering the Frost Skull’s skills.
The easiest way to solve this problem was to give probability for Frost Skul’s Freeze effect, however we did not want Status Effect skill to be probability based.
As a result we overestimated Frost Skull’s ability of neutralizing the boss and designed the Frost Skull weaker than we expected.

This patch boosted the ability of the Frost Skull to a suitable level but still, we do not think that too high value of Freeze and Stun effect in boss battles is the best scenario.

In order to solve this problem we will improve the Status Effect Resistance system of bosses as soon as possible.
In this patch we will take ‘alternative measures’ that boosted the ability of Frost skull and Status Effect like Freeze, Stun to a proper level considering the current Status Effect system.

However in the next update, we will figure out a way to make the boss battle much more exciting using the Status Effect system.

Items

We think Common items regarding Status Effect had a lower value than we thought. Instead of changing the probability of these items, we added abilities that could help clearing the early stages of the game.

Toxic Pendant

  • Added the effect: Physical Attack is increased by 20%.

Broken Dagger

  • Added the effect: Attack Speed is increased by 15%.

Mana Gauntlets

  • Additional damage is applied on Dash Attack as well

  • Screen Shake effect is added when additional damage is dealt

Inscriptions

We overestimated the Inscription’s combination flexibility and changed effect. In result the ceiling of growth got lower, and in the end stages inscriptions weren’t as effective as before. We looked into the overall value of Inscriptions and the difficulty of enemies, and boosted up the overall effects of Inscriptions.
By this measure, we made the upper-limit for growth similar to before.
