Hey blues! Got some tidbits for you about upcoming spells that we're currently looking into adding while under the effects of Unbridled Learning:
 
 • Absolute Terror 
 • Gates of Hades 
 • Pyric Bulwark


We'd consider the Pixie special abilities Spring Breeze, Summer Breeze, Autumn Breeze, and Winter Breeze, but they are too powerful, so they are pretty unlikely to be implemented.

We don't have any plans to allow spell Learning in areas that are related to missions and quests that players cannot repeat, so I’m sorry to say that Light Blade will not be added.

I imagine absolute terror would have absolutely terrible accuracy.

Gates of hades would just depend on how they program the spell for us. The way mobs use it doesn't really matter. Blazing bound is a completely different ability for us than it is for limules, for example.

Pyric bulwark I'd guess would be another phalanx type deal. Or migawari/scherzo/earthen armor, maybe.

I had a feeling they were going to substitute some thing else for Spike flail =/. I'm not really sure those three spells are really worth it imo either. The way UL works now, using one HNM spell every 5 min is lack laster, especially considering the spells themselves aren't super powered. If say hardened shell lasted longer then what one minute? Or if thunderbolt did substantially more damage (without boosting it from the use of atma) then I'd be more then all for these new HNM spells. To comment on the pixie spells being to powerful for us to use and even be not considered implemented is kind of silly to be honest. They could always tone them down like they have with other spells or make them cost 4-5 set points with a big MP cost.

I see what you did thar.

Gates of Hades... Ehhh, probably gonna aim for it being an actually useful AOE nuke for UL, with the idea being that they had to nerf thunderbolt because of the stun (And, let's face it, synergy with charged whisker atmawise). I was really hoping for Magma Hoplon from Cerberus, but oh well. At least Pyric Bulwark might be a bulky new stoneskin...

Really, I think everyone is more interested in what non-UL spells will be, given how disappointing UL is in general.
