I'm sure i know the answer but want to make sure...with the Glory update is Cannoneer Link Skill becoming part of the Pirate Explorer Link Skill?

    I don't see why it wouldn't, but this is a great question and a chance for Nexon to show some transparency before they make changes like this.

    both Jett and Cannoneer are Explorer Pirates (special)...so will you only need 3 of the 4 (Buccaneer, Corsair, Cannoneer, and Jett) Explorer Pirates to 120+ for the max Link Skill level?

    Jett already has a class-specific link skill that, to my knowledge(and having read orangemushroom posts when kms got the glory updates) is not being changed.

    Cannoneer (Correct me if wrong) can transfer into the other two pirates, so there's a need to make the skill the same.
    Jett however is unique, so most likely will not have the link skill changed out.

    We don't even have the patch notes for this yet. At least given Nexon the chance to say that the change is coming before you scream from the rooftops.
    Not only that, but as Dnaman101 points out, 3 links are needed for the full effect. What are they supposed to do in this situation?

    i'm pretty sure you are right about that...also Cannoneer's Link Skill is pretty close to the Explorer Pirate Link

    The orangemushroom post(found here) just describes the link skill, it says nothing about jett(or zen for that matter) having their link changed
    Pirate Bless: The pirate’s distinct strength increases a variety of your stats and decreases damage taken. This skill can be stacked up to 3 times if you have 3 different Adventurer pirate classes in the same world. For Adventurer pirate classes, you can use this skill to swap the STR and DEX on your equipment by opening your equipment window, clicking the skill, clicking on the equipment you would like to swap stats for (except for weapon, secondary weapon, Arcane Symbols, and pet equipment) then click the skill again. If you reuse the skill or unequip the items, their stats will swap back. (max level: 6)
    Level 1: 20 STR/DEX/INT/LUK, 350 HP/MP, 5% damage absorption.
    Level 6: 70 STR/DEX/INT/LUK, 1225 HP/MP, 15% damage absorption.

    We'll have to wait and see, really.

    Orangemushroom wouldn't say anything about Jett or Zen, since they're not in KMS.

    I thought I've seen mentions of zen on there before. Guess I was mixed up.

    Still, that lends more credence to jett's link skill not being affected by this change.

    Patch notes still haven't dropped, this is a very small "issue". Not really worthy of being placed inside the memo.
    It's a change that everyone who follows the KMS patch notes should have seen coming. Still would be nice if Nexon is clear about it in patch notes.
    As for the other stuff, it's unrelated to this subject.

    And now that the notes are out, WONDERBREAD's incessant fearmongering has once again failed to come to fruition.

    I guess it's a cooldown on the 15% damage absorb? Not sure, seems kind of silly imo

    Random question here but if we all get link skills finally with explorers are they at least going to let us have more spaces to use them instead of just 12?
    That has always annoyed me. I have so many characters and so many amazing link skills but my main can only use a certain small number of them.
