Okay. Most of you have heard and read of the release of Dual Blade in MapleSEA and the Big Bang Patch which was released in KMS and also will be released in GMS (by Christmas 2010). You must also have heard that Dual Blades will be nerfed terribly.
You begin to wonder, is this true?
Are they nerfed that badly?
Should i spend a lot of money buying the equipments before they’re out?
Is it worth it?
Are you going to listen to other people without reading my post?
Well i’m here to aid you in your decision. The Dual Blade skills which are nerfed are mostly for 1st and 2nd job skills where as 3rd and 4th job skills have been mostly boosted.
