    • [dev1004] Corsair’s Phantom Roll Ability
    We are considering changing the effect granted by the Phantom Roll ability when a player rolls a total of 11.

    We would love to get some feedback on this change from all you corsairs. If you have any great ideas, don’t hesitate to post them and discuss them. This feedback will be taken into account when we make our decision.

    For these requests, you don’t have to take the current effects of rolling 11 into account. We’d like your ideas on what you think would be cool when hitting that 11.
    Regarding Dynamis:
    Monster claim and item drops will work the same way as in regular fields and dungeons.
    3/10/2011

    In the meantime, here is what was discussed regarding the Black Belt specifically:

    "We currently have no plans of easing the way Black Belt is obtained. Due to the increased level cap, we believe that the ease has already been affected.

    We're actually looking into items that are more powerful than Black Belt for the future, and if they were to be introduced there may be a possibility that we re-visit adjustments for Black Belt acquisition."
    For the time being i'll just update the OP until something significant is posted by the dev tracker thing.

    Edit: Going to update OP soon with new info later tonight.

    Yeah, I think it's a good idea to have a topic like that to compile all the stuff they post.

    I was going to do the same for XIV, but none of the information has any real details, and its all rehashes of what was in the letter from yoshi-p, so I didn't bother.

    Dynamis changes are incredibly interesting, and I really did not even want to go back.

    (Also I hate the tarutaru RNG icon)

    Why do I fear this will be similar to the lack of reserving WoE zones?

    And be able to use all those useless seals you've hoarded to upgrade to +1.

    The forum needs the same kind of function like here that shows the last post made when on the main page. I feel kinda blind without it.

    Otherwise looks pretty good. I dunno if you should get all upset about the dyna changes before they announce what they're going to do with WoE. That system was getting some overhauls too, right? I could see the same happen to Dyna, then.

    If the dynamis changes include a party/ally only loot pool, respawning mobs that drop TEs and/or NM pop triggers, and potentially new NMs that drop new gear this could be totally win. If it's just free for all craptastic like WoE then ya lots of angry people.

    Mobs are supposed to give exp so I don't think they can make it work like WoE.

    This stuff makes me think that they want dynamis to be abyssea-like zones rather than woe.

    Cautiously optimistic about this. My last two trials will be cake if I don't finish them before this is implemented. Sounds like Dynamis could at least be more enjoyable now if you still do it.

    Being able to send gear and maybe seals to other characters on your account is interesting for peeps who share or peeps who have two chars levelled on the same account.

    Stacks and delivery box size sound fantastically sensible. Please let us have more outbox slots.

    Dynamis, I'm blown away by. If it involves evolith though... We'll see. Right now we dropped dynamis as a formal weekly thing and just do it once a month within our main shell. We might need to reconsider but only if there's a reason to go back. That reason would have to be new gear I think. Unless the xp is so much fun or it becomes easier to upgrade a relic. Interesting that it doesn't include CoP Dyna.

    Seals/Cards can only be win. Taking them away from highly contested NMs or at least providing other routes.. as long as they're not SUPER random is nothing but win.
