    DRG gets attention!

    In the next version update, major changes are scheduled for the dragoon two-hour ability.

    The development team does not consider the dragoon to be particularly weak when compared to other jobs, but we are aware that a large part of a dragoon's strength depends on the presence of his or her wyvern. After taking into account the wyvern's tendency to be quickly defeated in heated battles, and the dragoon's lack of a powerful special ability for use in missions and other critical situations, it was decided that improvements were necessary.

    Simply raising the wyvern's HP and defense to increase its survivability would cause balance issues in other parts of the game. However, it was judged that improving the dragoon's two-hour ability would have less of an impact on overall balance, and so the following changes have been planned for the upcoming version update:

    -New two-hour ability
    The dragoon will be imbued with the strength of his or her wyvern for a fixed length of time, increasing the dragoon's power and adding special effects to "Jump" abilities.

    -Call Wyvern
    The recast time for this ability will be reduced to twenty minutes. This ability will only be available when the main job is set to dragoon.

    -Wyvern
    Wyverns will now have the equivalent of the job trait "Subtle Blow," reducing the amount of TP gained by opponents from the wyvern's attacks.

    More details will be announced at the time of the version update.

    This change was necessary for the longest time. But I wonder what will happen to Spirit Link, since a lot of wyvrens live past 20 or so minutes (longer if the mobs don't spam AoE).

    The second sentence is as funny as it is counter-intuitive.

    I was wondering the same thing actually. I guess all the mobs will be adjusted as it would no longer be consistent with what SMN and BST mobs do (call their pet > use 2hr).

    Edit:
    Ix'Aern DRG and Absolute Virtue shoud be even more interesting with this too lol

    When you jump, you jump all the way back to jeuno and get kicked from the party.

    Oh yeah! Laugh it up! But when dragoons get changed, you'll be in your awesome rampage/mana/etc burn party and there will be a party full of paladins, dragoons, and theives just soaking up like... 3500 exp an hour and it'll be GREAT.

    It would be cool if they make the wyvern do the 2hr of the player's subjob when the player uses his 2hr. Like drg/war would make the wyvern use mighty strikes, drg/nin would make it explode or something like that. That and the jump enhancements.

    That's a good example of give a penny take a dollar.

    As in, if you give a penny, they'll take a dollar.
