    Geomancer: Findings and Mechanics *Needs More Handbells!*

    Geomancers
    http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxi/at...369542&thumb=1

    Geomancy
    "Geomancy" refers to magic that manipulates the lifestream.
    Geomancy spells cost MP in the same manner as other spells.

    * Offensive geomancy spells only affect targets for which the geomancer has enmity.
    * Geomancy spell effects stack with those provided by spells, songs, and phantom rolls.

     

    Two Types of Geomancy Spells
    Geomancy spells are divided into two categories, each of which has their own area of effect.
    Indicolure spells
    The Indi- family of spells creates fields of energy known as a "colure" centered on the caster. These fields provide a variety of effects.
    http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxi/at...369565&thumb=1
    Geocolure spells
    The Geo- family of spells creates a mystic conduit known as a "luopan" in a target area. The luopan emanates a colure centered on itself, providing a variety of effects.
    http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxi/at...369576&thumb=1
    *Geocolure spells may only be used if a player's main job is set to Geomancer.
    * Indicolure and geocolure spells causing the same effect do not stack.
    * Just as with sphere and tube spells, the effect is lost if a target leaves the area.

    Luopans
    Luopans possess their own pool of HP, which depletes over time.
    Luopans will disappear once their HP reaches 0.
    Luopans cannot be damaged by direct attacks, but area of effect abilities will still harm them.
    Luopans may not be moved after they have been placed.
    Luopans may not be healed or granted other abilities outside of a limited range of geomancer-specific abilities.

    Handbells
    Handbells may only be used by geomancers and are equipped in the ammo slot.
    If a geomancy spell is cast with a handbell equipped, the caster's handbell skill will increase in addition to his geomancy skill.

    The handbell is a critical weapon in a geomancer's arsenal, as the numerical effect of geomancy spells and the HP of the luopan are derived based on a total of the geomancer's geomancy and handbell skills.

    Geomancer Job Abilities
    * The Icon Type 2 scheme will display geomancer job ability icons in a future version update.

    Ability Level Acquired Effect
    Bolster 1 Enhances the effects of your geomancy spells.
    Full Circle 5 Causes your luopan to vanish.
    Lasting Emanation 25 Reduces the amount of HP your luopan consumes.
    Ecliptic Attrition 25 Enhances the effects of your luopan. Increases the rate at which your luopan consumes its HP.
    Collimated Fervor 40 Enhances the influence of your next Cardinal Chant cast.
    Life Cycle 50 Distributes one fourth of your HP to your luopan.
    Blaze of Glory 60 Increases the effects of your next applicable geomancy spell. Consumes half of that luopan's HP.
    Dematerialize 70 Prevents your luopan from receiving damage.
    Theurgic Focus 80 Increases the power of your next applicable elemental magic spell. Casting range and area of effect are reduced by half.
    Concentric Pulse 90 Causes your luopan to vanish and deals damage to enemies within area of effect.

      Geomancer Job Traits
    The levels listed below are the ones at which each trait is learned. These traits will become incrementally more potent depending on the player's level.

    Trait Level Acquired Effect
    Conserve MP Lv10 Occasionally reduces spells' MP cost.
    Cardinal Chant Lv25 Enhances the effect of your elemental magic spells. Effect differs depending on direction.*
    Elemental Celerity Lv55 Quickens elemental magic spellcasting.
    * The direction is determined by where the target is located relative to the caster and when the elemental magic spell actually lands on the target.

    Rolanberry
    Upper Delkfutt's

    Spell Range:
    1. Maximum could be 6.3' but to be safe 6' from Caster for Indi, or from Luopan.
    2. Buff effect - If Indi and Luopan existing in same range, you will get both buffs, providing they are different buffs.

    JA recast:
    Lasting Emanation & Ecliptic Attrition - Shared same timer, 5mins recast
    Full Circle - 10 sec recast, effect immediately remove existing Luopan.
    Life Circle - 10 mins recast.
    Collimated Fervor - 5mins recast.

    Ecliptic Attrition (Only works on Luopan)
    Tested (uncapped skilled, 125+ on both) Geo-CHR gives +7, after JA used, boosted to +8. (A bit dissapointed...)


    Notes:
    1. You need to learn the relevant Indi-Spell, and reached the correct level, before you can obtain the "free" spell from Reservoir. (already done testing)
    2. Unknown Bugged, even you passed the level and learn the relevant Indi-Spells, capped skill, you may not be able to learn it.

    I'm pretty sure these are all from vendors. If anyone is paying high prices it's his/her own fault.

    All COR spells were originally on vendors in aht urghan, so it's a reasonable bet, for the reason you say.

    Another reason is that Adoulin areas are all made for lvl 99s. Having low level scrolls only available from drops in the area would be quite stupid.

    Will GEO's Indicolure spells work like "Aura:" stats we've been seeing on Voidwatch bodies?
    If it does then they won't affect the GEO himself but only people around him.
    Sounds like SE's betatested that with the Aura stat for the past year

    For some reason I think they won't. Geo- spells are likely quite powerful at 99 with capped skills and through some JA usage.

    I'm curious how powerful the Refresh etc. of GEO will be. It's interesting none of the spells outside of thunder etc. get tiers, making all of them useful - similar to COR.

    Looks like geo-spells will be cast near melees whereas Indi-spells will be used for mages.

    They'll probably scale with Geomancy skill or level, or both, or something like that.

    I was expecting some more unique/original effect. Atm it's just AoE auras of effects already present in some other form, but stackable with them. Not bad, mind me, but I was expecting something more "unique" or hardly available from other sources.


    Did I miss something or are the GEO and RUN AFs missing from the new gear? I was expecting at least AF1 to be there since they showed it to us, but I guess it wasn't "ready".

    These were most likely the quests they weren't able to translate in time. Hopefully, they will be out relatively quickly.

    "Concentric Pulse 90 Causes your luopan to vanish and deals damage to enemies within area of effect." So first thing I thought when I saw this was running around dropping bombs like a Qiqirn lol

    Which is why I'm curious how potent they'll be at max lvl. Naturally they'll scale with geomancy skill and handbell skill (like BRD magic skills), hence why I'm wondering. Since all of them exists in one form or another, they'd have to be at least as potent as that from BRD or COR, or else it feels like GEO will be a pretty useless job.

    I wonder what the skill level will be?

    Handbell and Geomancy A+ or A-? Plus other skills they might get. They confirmed Elemental.. what about Enfeebling or Dark? Also Their club level and it was mentioned they can use shields?
