Shanda is currently conducting a survey on the new job: Academic, regarding
the choice of chinese name and the type of events accompanying the introduction
of Academic in Dragon Nest China. Currently, it is widely speculated that
Academic will be released in September for DN CN.
Here is a video showing Academic is capable of soloing hell apocalypse.
Also Academic in Hell bishop nest.
The latest KR patch at 25th Aug has boosted the skills of Academic too.
According to 半糖 (the uploader of the video), academic has very strong party support abilities, among them:
Increase MOVING speed (wax), damage absorption shield (bubble bubble), damage reduction (damage transition), aggro drawing (alfredo's stomp)
Mobs gathering (gravity grenade), Faint (Faint grenade), Down (Wax), Bind (bubble bubble), shock (meccaduck's attack), slow (ice pump tower).
Reduce elemental resist (biohazard missile), Silence (meccaduck's ability), Remove target's buff (especially berserk status, meccaduck's ability), Food producing (vending machine), reduce target's attack (mechabomber after 25th aug patch)
High DPS (assuming all summon units are used).
High mobility (rocket jump), Long Range Attack, Large AOE attack.
BUG (already fixed at 25th aug):Break superarmor (Forceout : a 10sec CD skills which can break ANY NEST BOSS SUPERARMOR INSTANTLY)
Therefore, i believe that Academic will be a popular member in various nest parties.
However, the DPS of academic largely relies on the AI of the summoned units. The DPS for Academic on her own is not very good since she has limited attack skill which deal high damage.
Alfredo has the same stats as the Academic with 400% of her HP. However, the meccaducks and towers have low HP, and can be destroyed easily.
25th Aug Update:
Tower and vending machine become invincible in PVE. Meccaduck hp is boosted ( = 70% of the char HP) . AI of summoned units improved.
