Breathwork Works like Impact. Asobimo forgot to mention it

    Pretty much what you red in the title.
    Breathwork can halve the MP cost of next Skill. and Nothing in it's description mentions it.
    Funny enough, Annihilator says that after using it the next skill MP will be halved but nothing happens.

    Either asobimo put the wrong buff on the wrong skill, or they actually forgot to mention to us. would not be the first time.

    Have been using it to replace impact, got 23 points back from the Magic skill tree. and Slide can be used in place of Finale since it is almost instant.

    I want to believe it is a buff. If this isn't, I hope they *Keep it as a unintended buff.* Knuckles is just mediocre now and a nerf would Not make anyone happy.

    Breathwork alone doesn't halve the mp cost of the next skill, that's why the description is written under annihilator since it completes the condition.

    True, slide is a good skill, though it can give you trouble at times when you're left hanging while sliding. Accuracy+100 at max level.

    I tested it, Breathwork halves the next Skill MP cost *independent from annihilator being used before.* Hence why I use Breathwork>annihilator, because the MP halving comes from it.

    Annihilator describes it as "At lvl10 it halves the next skill cost" (or something), Nothing mentions this bonus belonging to Breathwork, you can safely assume it would be a buff to annihilator itself since it doesn't specify which skill will be buffed at Lvl10, and that's normally how Self-buffing skills are described...
    What it does say clearly that the skill will increase is Breathwork *Healing*. Not the Halving MP thing.

    But, Assuming the MP halving from Breathwork is a buff that actually belongs to Annihilator at lvl10, and since you can use such buff *Without using annihilator before*, In other words, a passive effect... Why is it not explained? Why is this passive not even mentioned?

    It is so poorly described that this discussion exists. And it shows how little to no care asobimo have for Knuckles.
    Or they actually did it in purpose so people can regret taking Impact and buy oblivion books.
    Would not surprise me after all their negligence toward this game (Rollback flashbacks)...

    Explaining that all in the description would take too much space and they would have to minimize the font just to accommodate it. Toram has always been this way, many skills with poor description and or practically leaving out something important and players already knew what to expect, thus they explore it. Like how you tested it, everybody does that after a new skills/tree has been introduce and is a plus on what makes it interesting. Recently, they gave 2 weeks and 2 sets of resets, and would be enough to undone certain mistakes you made on your build. ^_^

    tier 4 side trees at lv215, probably this week's maintenance right when the free resets end :p
    but they were given for the guard/evasion system and new skills were never a reason for resets.

    Well, the description equally sucks for every other skill tree, actually

    Then minimize it? There are longer skill descriptions than this and we had no problem. Hell some skills even have 1/3 of the description of Annihilator while having much more to explain (the 'Both hands' katana skill is a decent example).
    They could make the description window bigger, cut less important words, etc... They can make it better, options are here to be used and discovered, they just didn't try/didn't bother.

    And it is very... Fishy, that I needed to use Resets to *Discover* a mechanic was hiding this entire time. *Needing* resets to discover these things does not sound Ok.. they should be clear from the beginning. Sounds like dirty Marketing Shenanigans
