    It's been over 3 months since I decided to do any updates for this guide... or well make that 2 months.

    Became quite busy with doing codes for the buff sets, then maxed out the Support Class, then grinded the Debuffer Class during April and May.

    Also became busy with the Black Market Guide as well and wanted to get the past black market dates done for the past months :P

    Now that I've had time to update this guide again, here's the next guide update. Some Buff Descriptions have been updated, the Benefit in Buff Sets description got updated for most buffs though, so expect quite a change to buff sets soon!
