    Test Server Findings

    I know there's a thread in the information section, but I figure this would be a great spot for findings on the test servers. Soooo, post all relevant test server findings! Spell effects, new job ability effects etc.!

    Spontaneity [new RDM JA for Quick Magic] has a 10 minute cooldown, and can be used on other party members.
    Not sure for alliance.

    Can we move to and from the test server freely?

    The game makes a copy of your current character, and puts it on the test server. Sounds like youd have to sign out of ff back to pol, then resign in. Also, doesnt work with windower launcher

    Edited this out of my post in the other thread;
    Palisade (PLD Ability) is 5 minute recast and lasts for 1 minute, any suggestions what would be a good sample size and mob type for block rate testing?

    Found a Grounds Tome in Shrine of Ru'Avitau~
    Pages:
    Spoiler: show
    [1] 10 arcana-type creatures.
    [2] 6 members of the elemental family.
    [3] 7 Aura Pots.
    [4] 7 members of the doll family.
    [5] 7 members of the evil weapon family.
    [6] 7 members of the golem family.


    The main surprise for me though?
    "Set training regime to automatically repeat upon completion?"
    Which is exactly what you think it is, you only have to speak to the book once.
    After you complete the regime, you gain your rewards and the counter resets. No more running back-and-forth for GoV.

    I did Page 5 for a test, and got 2050 Exp. If it follows the same pattern, a full page chain will mean 4100 exp. Not very amazing, but eh.

    Good, they mentioned they will implement that, but we didn't have info when. Really nice.

    You apply to be a tester, and they copy your data over. [Applying took one click for me, it might be limited in the future?]
    After that, you download about 8 GB of files, make a "Test Client" folder, and you use this instead of your normal POL/FFXI install.
    Once transferred, you can't transfer again, you can't transfer another character, etc.

    You can't test everything, the NPCs mostly give you access to basic things.
    You can obtain anything you can store in a moogle slip, some random consumables and gear, etc.
    I wanted to, originally, hop on and play with a Terpsichore, but you'd actually be required to go get the usual accomplishments for it.

    Hey, is the test server a fully functioning server? This could be the Ballista Royale the handful of players that actually like to do ballista have been waiting years for

    Yeah, everything appears to be in-tact anyway.
    However, SE did say those who aren't showing interest in testing would get their tester status revoked, so not sure what to take that as. xD

    Blah >:/ Is the Triple Attack flourish as bullshit as it looks? If you can answer that question, I probably don't even need to bother downloading stuff.

    There are no new items yet at all, except for the chocobo wand.

    Includes abilities, magic info, status effects (either my script broke, or they didn't put descriptions in yet, can anyone confirm?), titles, key items, quests.

    I'm sure most of this info isn't that useful anymore, but meh. >_> The quest one might be useful-ish, at least?

    Well, of course these things need to be tested in ballista, so proper adjustments can be made

    Companion's Roll gave 5% Regain to my Pet with a Lucky Roll.
    6% with XI Roll.
    No idea on any other values, nor do I know the amount of Regen.

    It appears to be just a Triple Attack, on a 2 and a half minute timer.
    I'm going to call it garbage for now.
    My guess is that Relic +2 will enhance it and make it have some use, like Striking Flourish used to via +2 Body.

    [EDIT] Oops double post.

    New Weapon quests are added, appears to be ones present for Emp/Mythic/Relic (but unable to check, there are just the correct number of corresponding trials available for each weapon types number of weapons - moogle tells you he has amnesia etc)

    Spell list looks to be resorted, at least for BLM

    New "HNM" BLU spells seem pretty weak(Thunderbolt, Harden Shell), but the new spells are actually pretty nice. Due to awesome not being able to windower I forget the names, but White Wind cured for ~800HP, the new stun move lasts a fuckton of time (Sand Sweeper was stunned 10s), Mortal Ray, there's a Phalanx spell...uh...one of them was a Physical damage varies with TP that my Test Server BLU did 3k with so that may be a decent Voidwatch physical spell.

    Blizzaja was one-shotting groups of Bluffalo for 5800-6000 each with standard BLM atma and Aquilo's, which was 900 more than BlizzV for my character. ThunderV did ~700 less but I had Ice atmas on.

    There is no quest for it.

    Could op add my data mine link to op so people don't miss it? There's really no point in making a separate thread for dat mining results.
