    >-New methods of obtaining the spell "Raise III" are being considered.

    Bleh. I don't like this one. It's not like they got rid of raise3, nobody just wants to do the BCNMs for them anymore. Just like why nobody does Torque BCNMs anymore since you can dig up/harvest elemental ores now, causing Torque prices to rise.

    >-The white magic spell "Banish" will inflict more damage on undead monsters.
    -The spell "Banish III" will become available.

    Maybe banish will be somewhat useful now?


    >-A new job trait will be added.

    Can't think of anything new for whm... Resist Death? No idea what Sam would get.

    >There will be several additions made to each job category, providing new job-specific abilities. There are two conditions for obtaining and using these abilities: the job to which the ability pertains must be set as the main job, and the main job level must be 75. The limit for adjusting existing abilities will also be raised.

    Interesting.

    >In the current system, blocking an attack with a shield negates all damage. However, in the new system, shields will only reduce the amount of damage taken. In addition to the basic defense bonus, how often a shield is used and how much damage is reduced will depend on the type of shield equipped. Also, the frequency of shield usage in battle will increase substantially with this new system.

    Doesn't concern me much but seems interesting as well.

    how about giving us BRDs some Shield Skill, those bastards.

    New Job Trait for SAM, Resist Invites - randomly turns down party invites, is noticeably more effective than other existing Resist Traits.

The limit for adjusting existing abilities will also be raised.

    Changes to the Shield System

    In the current system, blocking an attack with a shield negates all damage. However, in the new system, shields will only reduce the amount of damage taken. In addition to the basic defense bonus, how often a shield is used and how much damage is reduced will depend on the type of shield equipped. Also, the frequency of shield usage in battle will increase substantially with this new system.

    White Mages

    -The white magic spell "Banish" will inflict more damage on undead monsters.
    -The spell "Banish III" will become available.
    -A new job trait will be added.
    -New methods of obtaining the spell "Raise III" are being considered.

    Samurai

    -The effect of the samurai job ability "Third Eye" will be adjusted. -A new job trait will be added.

    Red Mages

    -We hate you. Die.

    I love you SE, well not quite, but you are on my good side. I can't really remember any updates in the past that specifically helped whm, besides the dia II cost going down. Thank you for the raise III thing, I was going to feel bad raise II all those melee out there. I wonder how much the MP cost will be on this new banish spell, and if it will be worth using in exp party now.

    what i'd like to see for WHM either in the new JA or meripo:
    -critical heal (like a % chance of a double heal)
    -hate ignore ability (like hit it, 10 min or 30 min cooldown or something, and for 30 sec take no hate whatsoever)
    -paralyna, poisona, viruna or w/e status cures AE, ERASE ae omg :3
    -a 99% raise
    -ability to cast protectra on another group

    thats just off the top of my head, gotta go now

    I swear I will explode if Red Mages don't get any new useful traits or abilities.
    Wait, they won't give Red Mages anything useful because they want us to "Convert" and become Bards.

    BANG!!!
    EXPLODE!!!!!







    Please, give rdms something new square..I do believe we deserve it.

  12. #12

    rdm already have more than bards
    maybe ballad III should be released

    Excuse me, don't delude yourself...Bards are more effective than Rdms in most ways.
    They can enfeeble mobs in their own right and vastly enhance a party's abilities, not to mention their job specific songs that makes a ranger go :O
    O and reraise song that can help in a tight spot. O and a song that can increase movement speed. O and Haste for the party. O and INT+MND songs. In many ways..a rdm is completely just outdone by a bard. Only a pld would fully appreciate an rdm due to refresh, but in most relative terms brd overshadows us ; ;

    i havent seen a bard solo serket ><


    i dun like crit heals... balancing hate can be a science, and when ur on the edge, a random double cure would pwn u in the face.


    new JA's you can only get with merits? damn i wish you didnt lose merits when you remove them from categories... (stupid enhancing magic)

    Blazer is correct. Square painted RDM into a corner by making the job party support instead of the "jack of all trades" bullshit line that we were fed when we started the game.

    I have seen WARs, NINs, and THFs solo serket though. A lot of people can solo serket with a NIN sub or main...

    WHM should get AOE raise III or something... or better yet, a raise that costs no MP and no time to cast.

    Idk, i'm bored at school
