Decorated with amethysts and rubies, the golden Jackal Warrior’s Set is a shining beacon of the Death God’s protection on the battlefield!
This savage breastplate is lined with supernaturally empowered gems that feed on the souls of those slain by its wearer, infusing the wearer with unnatural strength as they serve the Death God of the Sandsea!

Ranger's big AOE spell often takes too long to apply its damage, giving targets more than enough time to move away. This should help Ranger's damage stay more consistent.
- Rain of Arrows
* Applies damage over 3 → 1.8 seconds
Though it may sound appropriate for a Ninja, we felt the class has too much "hidden power" lurking in its abilities. We're taking some of the more passive power away from a couple spells in order to make sure that skillful play is required to get the full benefit from Ninja.
- Tempered Blades
* Max stacks Attack +30% → +21%
* Removed bonus dodge chance
Ranged and support classes are currently underperforming in PvP, so we are using the class-specific buffs to make adjustments. Currently we have a Melee buff, and we're adding 2 more categories: Ranged and Support. Classes that cover multiple categories will receive the buffs from both. The only exception is Mage since the class is already doing quite well in PvP.
- Melee Buff
* +15% Max Health
* +10% Movement Speed
* Moglomancer now receives both portions of this buff instead of only the movement speed
* Received by Warrior, Rogue, Guardian, Dragonslayer, Paladin, Ninja, Berserker, and Moglomancer
- Ranged Buff
* +10% Damage
* Received by Healer, Ranger, Pirate, and Necromancer
- Support Buff
* +20% healing output
* Received by Healer, Paladin, and Moglomancer
We're overall pretty happy with the variety of PvP Spells in use, though we want to encourage more healing from support classes (from the PvP Buffs) while not increasing fight durations too much, so we're lowering the heal from Recover. We also want Swiftcast to have usage on more classes than just Mage, so we're adding some Auto-Attack speed to make it more attractive.
* Health recovery 15-30% → 10-20%
* Now increases Auto-Attack Speed by 30%
