How is KFM after lvl 50 patch?

Recommended Posts


Mainly concerned with pvp but wouldn't mind insights on pve as well i.e. how good is kfm at soloing contents similar to mushin tower.

You just need to ani-cancel the *cricket* out of eveerything you encounter 

on a serious note KFM in KR is pretty solid right now -> PvP speaking
i dont have any info regarding the PvE might be not so different of what it is now

We already have all but the most recent balance change set, and when we get Silverfrost, we will have that patch as well. In terms of PvP, KFMs are OP in Korea and are OP here. HUGE number of KFMs everywhere now.


The ones who are likely to fall off are Summoners.

Once we get to the patch KR has now with the new mushin floors, infinite tower, etc, KFM shifts away from ani cancel reigning supreme. The balance changes we get make tiger strike (the far right path for 2, I'm fuzzy on names) and searing blow (far right on F) far better because on top of having roughly 90% uptime on searing palm, we get these buffs, I underlined the most ones that make the most impact.
