Dev Note #79: Party Raid & Servant BalanceDev Notes
About Party Raid "Party Raid reward is very underwhelming now." " I would rather have an entry limit on Party Raid and have more rewards." "Since there are 9 servants in a party of 3, I wish one player could place all 9 servants." "We need auto-repeat function." While Party Raid is not a content that can satisfy all Heirs, we believe that we have been trying hard to make the best choices to improve Party Raid. However, there were certain aspects of Party Raid that we wanted to maintain. We believe that such attitude prevented us from recognizing what Heirs truly want. We will continue to review the feedbacks about Party Raid. Please understand that it takes a significant amount of time to internally discuss Party Raid and make changes. Rather than rushing our decision, we will come back with another notice about Party Raid after thoroughly discussing Party Raid. Mildred / Lucrecia Balance Many Heirs have been constantly suggesting that there are issues with Mildred & Lucrecia balance. We want to thank all the Heirs investing their time providing screenshots & videos about Mildred & Lucrecia balance to emphasize the seriousness of the issue. Some Heirs expressed their concern of waiting for another 2~3 months for balance update when Mildred and Lucrecia are completely ruining the balance. We are taking Mildred and Lucrecia issue very seriously, even to the point that we are considering a nerf for the first time. The community has been constantly making suggestions about AoE damage, and we currently have Potential Patch regarding AoE damage planned on 3.6 Update as we have been promising. Mildred patch is scheduled after that, which is expected to arrive around 3.65/3.7 update. While the initial plan was to bring Mildred patch around 3.7/3.8 Update, we decided to bring earlier patch as we recognize the seriousness of the issue. Since Lucrecia is also hurting balance significantly, we will finalize Lucrecia change as soon as possible. Currently, we are aware of several issues including performance of Mildred's AoE ranged attack and Lucrecia's performance against Single Hit skill due to her Potential. Since strong performance against Range DPS servant is common among all AoE DPS servants, we do not see this as an issue for Mildred. However, currently, Mildred seems extremely strong not only because she is capable of wiping out even Healer / Support class servants under circumstances, but also because taking down enemy DPS servant usually leads to victory in current PvP meta where Lucrecia is very difficult to kill. We apologize about the balance issue. We will try our best to improve our balance.
