Welcome to Friday Update #49!
We've mentioned it to you guys before, but here's a little follow up on Henge no Jutsu!
Henge no Jutsu has been in NNK since almost day one. It's always been a fun technique to use just to mix things up. The main benefit of Henge is used in Team settings when trying to throw off a pursuer or sneak up on an enemy.
When preforming Henge, you randomly switch into one of your opponents appearances disguising yourself from them. Using this technique puts you at a great advantage in being able to surprise your enemy but also puts you at a great disadvantage offensively. While in Henge form you are unable to use any attacks or techniques. To retain your form you must only utilize your movement keys. Any attempt at attacking or setting up a Jutsu will cause you to fall back into your regular appearance.
Additionally, we didn't want players just to run around disguised all the time as it would take the focus away from the intense action. Using Henge will continually drain your chakra until you drop back into regular form. It's very important to time your Henge as close to your opponent as possible so you don't waste any more chakra than necessary. Running across a map in Henge form is inadvisable as you'll find yourself defenseless by the time you reach your foe!
