New Class Coming Soon in PWCN: 妖猴 ("Demon Monkey")

edited April 16 in General Discussion
With the most recent update on PWCN, it looks like they are making preparations for a new Untamed class. Its name in Chinese seems to be "妖猴" which directly translates to "Demon Monkey". I believe this is likely a Wukong class, but I don't want to make up a name for these guys haha - you guys can if you want.

Note that I'm still gathering information from various sources on this new class, but it doesn't seem like they've added a whole lot right now. I will try to update this thread as more stuff gets discovered.

Basic Information
The class appears to be LA, which is expected. In terms of its stats, it shares the same kind of stats as the Archer/Duskblade/Technician classes. I don't know what its primary damage stat is for the moment.

The icon for the new class:

No confirmation on whether this class is gender-locked or not.

Weapon
It appears that the weapon type is named "棍棒" which translates to "stick", which is further evidence that this may be a Wukong kinda class.

This appears to be what the weapon may look like in-game. Note that the class holding it is NOT the new class, but a venomancer. This (and other images) got sent to me so I don't know their source.

Here is an album of all the known weapon models so far (again, not my images): https://imgur.com/a/BRagUHL

Skills
There are some skills found in the client, but it looks like they're still a work-in-progress as they lack proper names and descriptions.

Below is a current pastebin of the skills found as of 4/13/2021. They have added more skills as well as descriptions, so there is more that can be translated. I did take a quick look at them and there's a transformation skill, a constant aoe, and homestead skill. Also...swimming mastery in case you were concerned this untamed class was gonna miss out.

    It would be weird if they don't add a second class, I'm guessing a HA tideborn? When this happened last time it took 9 months for the new classes to arrive in PWI from the time they were first detected in PWCN. Expect this stuff to come to PWI in Early / Mid 2022.

    West: Is this an out of season April fools joke?
    CN: Don't you guys not have credit cards and stimulus checks saved up?
  • I hope they fix this gender-locked untamed classes. It would be cool to see a male venomancer with different tail or a female barbarian.

    There's also this untamed transformation where you chose a wolf design on your barb and yet when you use your transform skill, it's either going to transform you to panda or tiger. Similar issue with venomancer, there are different types of designs such as dog, bunny, devil, etc. and yet you transform to fox.

    Looks like there's an updated version of the skills. They've added more skills and added descriptions, so there's a bit of stuff that can be actually translated. Again, it's likely these will change in the future but should give an idea of what kind of skills to expect from the new class.

    Here's the link to the pastebin: https://pastebin.com/raw/fRGmVcSK

    Where is the source for these? Is it on tieba or pwcn forums?

    Okay translated from that pastebin.

    Click here for a shorter version with only the descriptions, maybe it's a little easier to read

    Otherwise, this is the full translation; highlighted skills are monkey form, anything blank, the pastebin didn't include; ua means unarmed. I'll updated this over the next fill days to fill in more blanks, maybe guess some of the translated names.

    Slapping in some responses since I kept forgetting to do so earlier:

    It's strange that there only appears to be one class, I've seen other communities questioning this but I think it's just too early with how little information there is at the moment. There's always a possibility for them to develop a second class but no idea when we will know if it happens. I don't really recall how much info was initially found when the Tech/Edge classes were first discovered.

    As for the sources, I'm not too good at browsing the CN forums so I'm not sure if there's anything there. I'm pretty sure PWCN forums had nothing last I checked because they're pretty dead lol. I know that some of my sources came from the PWRU community (I was pointed in that direction by a friend initially). They have some extra info on there such as "male only" and "customizable tail" but a bunch have been rumors that I can't seem to find more information on. I even had a video sent to me that could have been animations for the ape form, but again couldn't find more information on it. Other information tends to be given to me by friends - being a wiki admin, a lot of people from different perfect world communities like to send me info about unreleased/upcoming stuff on PWCN.

    probably the unused Club weapon in PW

    fixed some typos, I also removed the blank column of English skill names, I'm not even going to guess what they're going to be called so it's useless.

    I would have like the next untamed class to be a flying creature.

    Class and new server will be released on June 9th. https://w2i.games.wanmei.com/news/gamenews/20210527/83714.shtml

    ''In human form, he is extremely mobile, and he can use his agile skills to get close to the enemy immediately, and accurately strike and control it. When encountering danger, you can cleverly use the avatar Jin Chan to escape, making it difficult for the enemy to accurately capture his whereabouts, and effectively guarantee his own survival. When [Monkey Monkey] transforms into a "white ape" form, its power increases sharply and becomes extremely powerful, which can cause great group damage to the surrounding area.''

    Are you going to show gameplay footage of the class once it comes out?
  • hokker#1570 hokker Posts: 173 Arc User
    @puangi I'm not sure, I don't have an pwcn account, the info I bring here I receive from a friend and from the chinese website

    If my friend record something I'll post it here

    I come with gifts (of resources relating to the new class). Of course, skill-related stuff is subject to change from the update as I imagine they'll do bug-fixes and balance changes.

    Here is the (slightly cleaned up) text of all skill changes and additions. Note that there's changes to bloodpaint and some other glyph skill in there, and then all the monkey skills and some other stuff: https://pastebin.com/raw/wPfUM6F9

    Here is the diff between the last skill file before the update (so it includes monkey skills already) vs the new skill file https://www.diffchecker.com/59wO4qNt

    Here's all the new loading screens (only 5 of them): https://imgur.com/a/AsJCoOH

    Here's all the new skill icons I guess, there's 320 of them: https://imgur.com/a/kKFPi3h

    While I do have access to PWCN, unfortunately trying out the new class is not my top priority since PWI has announced their expansion and I've got a ton of other stuff on my backlog to work through before I can look at an update we won't get until like next year.

    It seems like the monkey has a passive and a buff that absorb the damage caused by normal attacks(interval)
    this new attribute is called ''Block"
    The passive in the sage version blocks up to 3300 damage caused by normal attacks
    The AoE buff blocks up to 210 damage caused by normal attacks and lasts for 20 seconds
    Here some threads I read about this
    https://tieba.baidu.com/p/7396408357
    https://tieba.baidu.com/p/7396537333?pn=2

    Here's the skill description (lv. 1 I guess)
    unknown.png

    After transformation, Block your maximum Health 2+level * 0.2% plus 100 direct Damage, the total sum does not exceed the maximum
    3000 points .
