    As the great Paul Harvey once said....... Stand by for NEWS!

    Ok, those new weapons suck. What the hell was SE thinking when they came up with this load of maggot infested fecal matter?

    .... Um... wut? ._.

    BLM on polearms and stuff? What is this? Does not compute.

    Probably upgraded rune weapons.. Would explain why doctor status was talked about recently.

    .... Why can't the damn g.sword have the same massive job range as the others? I don't want to do Master Trials for aby procs. ;;

    Wonder what they changed in those H2H WS description. Anybody has the old and new descriptions to compare?
    Also wonder why they added a single new Raetic equipment in addition to that plethora of weapons.

    The old/new are listed. They replaced parrying skill with guarding skill. lol

    Raetic matches up w/ the old Rune items from Strange Apparatuses. Pretty sure the only Rune armor was Rune Bangles.

    There is only one Harvey, and it isn't Paul, and it didn't strike Texas.


    Yes the new armor and weapons sucks terribly. Just like the runeic level 75 weapons they are modeled off of sucked too (outside of chopper for DRK before the 80% delay cap).

    No I meant the Weapon Skills.
    SE said they changed the description in some of them: Shoulder Tackle / One Inch Punch / Backhand Blow / Howling Fist / Final Heaven / Ascetic’s Fury / Tornado Kick
    They also mention there currently is an error in the Dragon Kick description (says 8 hit while it's 2)

    Oh... makes sense I guess.
    Makes me wonder if the "Strange Apparatus" change they did a couple of patches ago was just for this patch, or if there's more to come about that all in the future.

    Probably has something to do with how they counted offhand hits or something before

    There was a text message error. Boost would say it wore off (when it didn't) if you used Steps with it active.

    They already mentioned multiple times in the JP forums that according to them Boost is perfectly fine and working as they intended it to work.
    There is no "bug" to fix, just the wrong text thing.

    The fact it's completely stupid is another story, but it's still "working as intended".
    I dunno, if you ask me I'd revert Boost, Focus and Dodge the way they were before honestly. The H2H Delay/damage and Footwork changes instead were okay.

    Fix?! Pft, they are done with MNK.

    They gave it a couple adjustments in separate updates. I am willing to bet they feel they did a good job and can come back later.

    That would be the third best thing from the update besides the shields, and the rusk descriptions, finally.

    My mistake. ^^;; No idea on what the changes might be. Could be something as silly as adding a comma somewhere tho tbh. Fun note, the Dragon Kick typo is NA client only, it's not listed in the JP patch notes.

    There has been a lot of complaints in the JP forums as well, which leads me to think they will have to come back to MNK sooner rather than later.
    Clearly they have other stuff in their schedule for now but I don't think we'll have to wait another year to see them do some more tweaks to MNK.

    (ok, call me an optimist!)

    Chicken Knife II looks like a stylized chocobo head. They showed off a bunch of homage weapons a while back, it's the giant yellow thing. When they showed it again in the FP, the JP players couldn't tell at first if it was a dagger or an axe. lol

    EDIT: Have a screenshot :3

    Like Dasva already said I'm pretty confident it's about the number of hits in the description.
    Previously all H2H WS used to account for the offhand hit inside the WS description. There was an exception to that, Tornado Kick (I think that's the one?).
    They probably decided to allign the description to the same format for all WS? I dunno.

    Tbh it makes sense that for H2H the WS description takes into account the offhand hit. It's not like you can "unequip" your offhand weapon, which is the case for jobs who dualwield.

    Tornado kick used to say 2 now it says 3. A bunch of those used to not say which meant 1 main hand 1 off hand now it specifies 2 fold
