    ToA Information

    This site I found has some information on all the stuff coming in the next expansion that we NA's didn't get but apparently the JP did. I Babelfished a rough translation and it seems to have detailed information on the new jobs and abilities they have. Can anyone who knows Japanese and has alot of free time, write up a translation of this page?

    Skimmed through it...

    Corsair Job Abilities:

    Phantom Roll - Gives a party member's job's traits(crit bonus from thf, mab from blm)
    Gamble - Blackjack-like ability where you can be penalized for busting.
    Quick Draw - One of 8 cards that does various things like debuffing.

    Puppetmaster:

    Talks about being a unique job because of the customization of the automoton.

    Blue Mage:

    Talks about learning new spells with blue mage points, blah blah..

    Aside from the different names of abilities, I don't see any new info I haven't seen somewhere else. It's rather long, is there any specific part you're curious about?

    Other than SA and TA, thf has no 'crit bonus' and isn't even the job that crits the most. So if they're going to say that's one of our traits...it's new?

    It's the only job in the game that has an ability that equates to an automated crit. Only reason NIN and MNK have a higher critrate is because they use the latent weapons. THF would have higher if they used all of their crit rate gear, (Dagger + AF2 body) and spammed SA as much as they could.

    - sorry, they wont tell us about the 2hr.
    - Main Ability is basically a dice roll (6 possible cards, numbered 1-6). different things happen depending on what the roll was.
    - that ability used again (looked like a 30 or 60 sec cooldown) will cause more (and better) things to happen to your party, or to the mob.
    - the sum of rolls causes something to happen, the best sum you can get is 11. if you hit 12, you "bust" like in blackjack, and when you bust there's a (probably slight) negative effect.
    - effects depend on party setup: if you have a war in your party you can give everyone double attack, if you have a BLM then you can give everyone MAB, if you have a THF then you can give everyone crit bonus.
    - job ability called "Card Shot" - use 1 of 8 different shots in your gun, and it's a magical attack. one example is strengthening debuffs that are currently on a mob (like dia).
    - one ability will be to lower recast time of spells for your party.
    That's the exact example used in that site, and that's what I meant... sorry if that was unclear.

    I wish RDM would give everyone in the party "Refresh Whore". I would feel vindicated.

    Actually... stealth aint bad. I've noticed a very significant difference when using it, helps pulling in dangerous areas... so its only 99% usless
    Subtle blow would rock as a party effect
