Future of Cabal (2022H2-2023)

Posted by

The second half of 2022 is here, Cabal has quite a lot to offer you in 2022 with lots of marvelous contents such as the Myth Level, Mission War: Ingens Proelium โš”๏ธ, Force Wing Training Renewal ๐Ÿฆ‹ and even some revealed content for the Winter 2022 like: Force Wing Expansion to Level 400 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ, New Item Set Dragonium ๐Ÿ‰ and others.

But those are contents of 2022, how about 2023, the year that Cabal will turn 18 ๐ŸŽ‚. So, what might we expect for the Winter of 2022 as well as the year 2023 in Cabal. Let me be the tour guide accompanied with you for this trip.

Possibility: Confirmed
Expected Date for Cabal KR: Winter 2022

Force Wing was introduced back in 2018 as part of Episode 21; in Episode 24, they expanded the Force Wing with level 200 through the introduction of Wing Transcendence and Force Wing Dungeon: Holia Windmill. Later in Episode 27, we got the Force Wing Dungeon: Holia Keldrasil where you can get Essence of Wing (Unique), the special material that you need to transcend your Force Wing to level 300.

This winter 2022, Force Wing level 400 will be released for Cabal KR, a new Force Wing Dungeon will be released along with the ability of transcending Force Wing over 300, to reach Epic Grade with level 301 – 400.

Do you have any expectation for the new Force Wing Dungeon, and also the stats of new Force Wing Grade? Will it be again 1 HP / 1 Attack / 1 Defense or it will be something new?! In the most recent up – Episode 33: Ingens Proelium – we have seen the Force Wing has been received a huge revamp with the new Force Wing Advent Skill and Force Wing Training.

So I hope that the new Force Wing with “Epic Grade” can have some new stats per level or some more creative way for progressing.

Possibility: Confirmed

A whole new grade of item is emerging Nevareth continents, they said that the power of fiery dragons are held inside the Dragonium gears give an outstanding look for the owner.

One question that many players are raising is “What will be the stats of the new Dragonium items?”. I think it won’t be a huge leap, because it’s in the same grade of Ultimate, the stats gap would be something like between Archridium and Mithril or so. You can refer to the table of stats calculation below. Remember that, stats of Dragonium in the table are speculated based on the gaps of stats increase per item grade.

Well we have seen the same concept art for months, but only with the armour set, how about weapon? Will we also have weapon for the Dragonium grade? Yes yes yes! A new item grade could not skip the weapon; however, until now, we do not have any official artwork of the Dragonium weapon yet. But we can imagine, the Dragonium weapon would be similar to the gear with orangish-black theme and a bit of blazing fiery look.

Hmm, how about the new Bike? Will we have any chance to get a new bike along with the Dragonium set? My prediction is a big “NO”. Normally, per item grade we have only one bike, like Blue for Medium, RW3 for High, PW5 for Highest and recently we have QW7 for Ultimate. So, I think that we need to wait till they release the next grade of items to get the next bike ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Well, let’s wrap up for the Dragonium. but remember that, beside of the Gear, Weapon and Bike, we also have Epaulet, it will also play a big role in the set.

Possibility: Sooner or Later

This is kinda a biggest question for last 4 years, back in 2018 from the time they released the Demonite items along with Mirage Island ๐Ÿ๏ธ and Force Wing ๐Ÿฆ‹: “When can we have the Master’s and Craftsman’s for Demonite?”. Why do we have this issue? Is Demonite not enough powerful to pass the Craftsman’s or Master’s Palladium? ๐Ÿค”

Well, the answer is Yes โœ”๏ธ and No โŒ… With the in comparison with “Craftsman’s Palladium” then the normal Demonite can pass Palladium with the boost of additional stats. However, when we compare the Master’s Palladium with Demonite, well especially for the Suit ๐Ÿ‘• / Gloves ๐Ÿงค, then we can instantly see the disadvantages of Demonite as the special “epic option” is not available (Max Crit. Rate) ๐Ÿ’ฅ, that we didn’t even mention the shortage of good option scrolls for Ultimate grade.

So will we have the Master’s and Craftsman’s for Demonite? Answer is Yes. When? Not sure. Why do I said so? Because just in this Winter 2022 โ„๏ธโ˜ƒ๏ธ๐ŸŒจ๏ธ, they will introduce the new set of Dragonium. If they would introduce the Crafting for Demonite along with the Dragonium, for sure no one will go for Dragonium and stay with Craftsman’s or Master’s Demonite. From my personal point of view, they might release it not earlier than Summer 2023 ๐ŸŒž.

Anyways, it is worth for discussing the stats of the Demonite Crafting output? I made some calculation ๐Ÿค“ If you want to see the final result, then go for the big tables, for the detailed calculation, then you can go for the small tables. Remember that, the stats are just speculated based on some assumptions and calculations.

Season Pass system is going to be added to Cabal, by completing a set of mission, a certain Season Pass Experience will be gained, by gaining the Season Pass EXP, the Season Pass Rank will be increased and that grants your rewards accordingly.

Beside of the Rank-based rewards, there will be also the unique rewards that you can obtain only from the Event Pass.

This content has been added into Cabal Mobile KR, so the actual content that we get in Cabal PC would be almost similar. The content below I prepare based on Cabal Mobile KR patch notes.

Concepts:

  • Season Free Pass / Premium Pass:
    • Season Free Pass:
      • Earning Points by completing the missions daily during the Season.
      • This pass allow players to obtain step-by-step rewards according to the achieved cumulative Rank.
    • Season Premium Pass:
      • In addition to the general rewards from the Season, players can obtain additional rewards in parallel by activating the Premium Pass.
      • The Premium Pass can be purchased by Force Gem (in PC version, it could with Cash / eCoins / CC).
  • Season Progress:
    • Season Score and Rank will be reset at the start of every Season.
    • Season Duration: Around 8 weeks.
    • 10 missions will be generated randomly daily. Depends on the type of the Pass some features are different. Refer to the table below.
    • By consuming Force Gem, certain features can be done. Refer to the table below.

As I mentioned, the Event Pass has been launched in Cabal Mobile KR, so not only the mechanism, we also can take a look at the actual Game UI. The Season Pass UI in PC might have the similar layout like in in mobile with 02 main areas and 02 tabs:

  • Left: Summary of the Season Pass:
    • Season Rank
    • Season EXP
    • Duration of the Season
  • Right side consists 2 tabs, you can check the images below for more details.
    • Mission List
    • Reward List

For avoiding any kind of confusion, I won’t give any further details. Since the feature is confirmed for the Winter 2022 update โ˜ƒ๏ธ. Let’s wait for the details to be announced during the update in the incoming weeks in Cabal KR ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท.

Possibility: Medium
Expected Date for Cabal KR: N/A

Mercenary System got latest update back in Episode 15 with Senillinea. They introduced 4 mercenaries (Leedy, Aizhan, Elena and Skalid), those were developed based on game stats at that time. We all agree that the stats that those Mercenaries give are not bad, but it’s almost nothing if you compare with the current game stats. We are now at Episode 33: Ingens Proelium and in Winter 2022, we will have Episode 34. It’s 17 episodes already without a single update for the Mercenaries ๐Ÿ’ช

First two things I could imagine in my mind by now is the addition of new Rank for Mercenaries, like now those new Transcendence Mercenaries from Episode 15 have limit of 4 Ranks with 10 Levels per rank. We can expect that they would add few more ranks on top to increase the Mercenaries stats ๐Ÿ“ˆ. Beside that, we could also put our point of view a bit far into the future with an objective view, well, a new equipment system or something like that sounds really great!

What would be the BEST ๐Ÿคฉ way to introduce the new set Dragonium?! Let’s introduce in a new dungeon with fire and dragon ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ. Well, at least that is my own idea. But we never know, developers can even introduce the new set just in old dungeons.

But if there is a slight chance that developers would make a new dungeon, I bet it would be with fire and dragon combination. Who is with me ๐Ÿค” Imagine a new dungeon, Illusion Castle: Dragonium’s Lair ๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿฒ๐Ÿฒ. Time to time, I see that they decided to drop those tedious click-and-progress mechanism like back in Tower of the Dead B1F / B2F in 2005, we are now in 2020 era, dungeon must be straight forward to get players’ attention and dedication ๐ŸŽฏ Imagine a fiery castle with creepy atmosphere, every corner of the castle, some demonic creatures are lurking around, getting ready to snap your soul ๐Ÿ˜ˆ Sharpen your weapon, enhance your force, be ready to fight against them to get the new item Dragonium ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Beside the speculation for the fiery dungeon for introducing the Dragonium, we also need to think about the new Force Wing Dungeon ๐Ÿฆ‹. Until now, I could not give any speculation for the new Force Wing Dungeon yet, what we know till now are:

  • The new Force Wing Dungeon will require a certain combination of Grade / Level of Force Wing
  • It will be the source for new material “Essence Wing (Epic)”, this material item will be used for leveling up the Force Wing Level 301 to 400 (also know as Epic Grade).
  • The dungeon could have the similar theme with angelic / heaven creatures ๐Ÿ‘ผ and fantasy landscapes.

Possibility: Medium
Expected Date for Cabal KR: N/A

Well, this is not a new topic. Time to time, we discuss about this with different ideas like:

  • Introduce a NEW ๐Ÿ†• upgrade type (which is not Normal Upgrade, Extreme Upgrade, Chaos Upgrade, and Divine Upgrade)
  • Introduce Perfect Core for Extreme / Chaos / Divine Upgrade ๐Ÿ’ฏ
  • Revise old upgrade content ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’ญ.

Recently, we have some updates related to upgrade system that I can list down below:

  • Arcana Upgrade limit has been increased from +15 to +20 in Episode 31 (for Cabal PH, it is from Episode 27) ๐Ÿƒ.
  • Upgrade Success Rate reveals at Upgrade UI in Episode 27 ๐Ÿ”ฎ.
  • Ring / Epaulet Chaos Upgrade in Cabal Mobile ๐Ÿ’.

We can see that they focus a lot on Chaos Upgrade, but not the Divine or Extreme Upgrade. Basically the Divine was release back in Episode 18 and we got a new Divine Grade recently at Episode 22 for Ultimate items. But the Extreme Upgrade is quite old ๐Ÿง“๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿ‘ต and most of players have the feeling like untouchable upgrade system ๐Ÿ‘‹

I don’t say it would happen 100%, but still, I have a huge believe that we might get some changes for the Extreme Upgrade system soon โŒ›. What kind of change could we expect to get?

  • Stats Renewal: Stats of the Extreme Upgrade are quite UBER, but those are quite mainstream, it’s against the current trend of stats separation with PvE and PvP โš”๏ธ.
  • Extreme Upgrade Success Rate Reveal: From Episode 9 until now, all players keep wondering about the success rate of the Extreme Upgrade. We understand clearly that any “chance” in CABAL is just another “SCAM”, because even with 99% still we can “FAIL” for sure. But knowing some numbers will help players to understand their risk ๐ŸŽฑ.
  • Safeguard: The most sadness thing related to Extreme Upgrade is not having a “safety” mechanism ๐Ÿ›Ÿ๐Ÿฆบ. Building an Extreme +3 or +4 is quite a far dream ๐Ÿคž for many players, not even thinking about those +5 or +6, or the Ultimate +7 for Demonite items ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ.
  • New Extreme Core with Higher Level: Another approach to make the Extreme Upgrade being more friendly ๐Ÿ˜˜ with players is either increase the success rate ๐Ÿ“ˆ๐Ÿ€ or introducing a new higher level Extreme Core. From my point of view, a new higher level Extreme Core might be feasible.

It’s true that the crafting system in Cabal brings a lot of power to players. The Craftsman’s and Master’s items are now playing a HUGE and IRREPLACEABLE role in players’ build. But, those items also reduce the variations of building sets. All players always want to build set with Master’s and Amp. as main epic. There is no other variation!

Imagine a set with Master’s but main option is Penetration or Ignore Resist Crit. DMG? Those set will be a game-changer! Instead of using the same set for every single situation, players can use specialised set for certain situation; just like the same way you are switching between the resist set and the damage dealing set.

Beside of the set crafting, we have another branch of craft… (or not?!) Who are accessories crafters here ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ“ฟ? Instead of getting additions while they did the renewal in Episode 8, they cut a lot of potential for variations for building accessories. Based on data mining, we have some left over data in the client data files, including:

  • Astral Jewel (Lv. 1 – 7) ๐Ÿ’Ž.
  • Test Amulet 1~20 ๐Ÿ“ฟ.

Will we get those accessories a day in the future? Definitely a big “YES” from me! Like 2-3 episodes ago, I’ve found they added few test items into the test system, lots of test accessories. It’s clearly a silent move from the developer. We might expect in the near future some overhaul for the accessories.

So, what do you think about those incoming contents – ahmmm – also some speculations ๐Ÿ˜œ From my personal perspective, all of those are kinda sick ๐Ÿ˜ฑ! The Future of Cabal is bright and shiny with loads of exciting and promising contents. I’m looking forward to the Dragonium items and the manufacturing ability for Demonite items. The Force Wing ๐Ÿฆ‹ with Epic Grade will be helpful with stats boosting, but I’m expecting for some innovation in stats distribution, not with HP/DEF/Attack +1 each ๐Ÿ˜‘. For the item upgrade renewal – especially the Extreme Upgrade – I really want it to happen, but the chance of happening is quite narrow ๐Ÿ˜ญ. Which content are you looking forward to? Share your thoughts ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ’ญ.

Thanks for keep following my channels & contents ๐Ÿฅฐ
