    Worst Screw Over in the History of FFXI?

    I'm bored at work and wanted something to entertain me. I don't know if this has been posted before but...

    What was the worst nerf/screw over SE has done to someone in the game?

    Was it the RNG nerf where distance/dmg is relative, DRG where every hit of penta thrust counted for TP gain, BST with the MPK patch, RMT with the Dbox maxing out at 1 mil gil, or was it something else?

    Toss up between the TP and RNG Nerf.

    Limed for the truth. There was an accidental charm nerf that reduced the range of charm that hurt pretty badly when xping BST. I'd have to say that the ranged nerf was the biggest nerf though in all seriousness, it took basically one of the top DD in any situation and made them average.

    oh sit, same here, that just made my day at work better

    Edit: on topic had to be Rng nerf, though close runner ups have to include the MPK patch, the TP nerf (/goodbye Asuran Fists spam, fuck penta, AF spams were the culprits), and the Fuidama nerf, anyone leveling thf should feel the pain of fucktard noobs who move around when you are trying to TA on them(you know about this if you played when game first came out to NAs, thf was easier to play then, lol).

    I think TP ala pentaspam nerf was the biggest.

    RNG nerf is meh compaired to it.

    MPK/BST nerf hurt, but it far from ruins the XP, in a lot of cases, that patch has made lvln easier, with switching up the lvls of charm and target mobs.

    Lets face it, DRG died with the TP nerf, RNG can still preform their job, doing RANGE attacks, they just cant melee anymore without hurting their range dmg. Is the dmg the distance that great, melee'n doesnt work? Ive never liked RNG, so i never played it passed SJ lvl. When I did level it, the sweet spot compaired to to melee and others was only 3~6 dmg diffrence.

    But, pentaspam is an unrivaled nerf o doom. Regardless it effected all the jobs, but DRG and SAM got hit the worse. imagine some of the sick shit SAM could be doing now with all this extra stuff on equip they have now >.x

    The biggest Nerf? It's when SE changed the way monsters move. Pre-Nerf monsters were limited the same way players are, that is the needed to find a path to get to you. Now most of them can climb vertical walls, and pass through doors and walls.

    Why does this matter?

    Before then Ranger was a solo job, a good ranger could pick a exp camp and snipe monsters knowing there was no way for the creature to ever reach him.

    Thankfully SE has reversed the change in select ToAu zones but I really miss the old logic of the code.

    Two that come to mind are the Ballad nerf and Last Resort nerf. I seem to remember reading somewhere that -ga3 got nerfed as well as it would hit all targets in range for the same amount of damage.

    Probably the most devastating nerf was the ranged damage patch. It singlehandedly reduced the number of rangers from ~130 to less than 30 on Bahamut. The seemingly random accuracy combined with -30% average damage has regulated ranger to just being another DD.

    One of the most pointless nerfs, though, was the elemental nerf, especially in light of ToAU. What was the point of nerfing elementals if melees would be doing the same thing - racking up insane chains - in ToAU six months later?

    sounds like the RNG nerf. the collective whine of hundreds of people im sure caused them to do this.

    I think worst was DRG.

    It surely sucks for Rangers, but people need to admit it: Rangers were overpowered. I can't say much about Dragoons, I just remember them being kickass but it's so long ago that I can't remember if it was overpowered or not.

    But still, Rangers are still a decent job, and Dragoons ... meh it all depends. But almost everyone will take a RNG over a DRG in an exp party, and that proobes it IMO.
