    Job Adjustments (12/01/2006)

    Paladin Adjustments

    With high defensive capabilities and enmity generation in mind, we will be adjusting the effect of the paladin job abilities Sentinel and Rampart.

    Sentinel
    The effect of Sentinel will be changed from an increase in defense to straight damage mitigation.
    Also, all actions taken while Sentinel is in effect will generate additional enmity, allowing the paladin to more easily gain and maintain an enemy's attention.

    Rampart
    In addition to the defense bonus granted to party members within the area of effect, Rampart will now also provide a "Magic Shield" that will absorb a certain amount of magic damage in the same manner as the spell "Stoneskin."

    Shield Mastery
    In addition to granting a TP bonus, the Shield Mastery job trait will also prevent interruption to spell casting when an enemy's attack is blocked with a shield.


    Dark Knight Adjustments

    The casting time for Absorb spells will be reduced from 4 seconds to 2 seconds to increase their utility in battle.


    Blue Mage Adjustments

    Changes will include more monsters available from which to learn blue magic, as well as additional spells, and adjustments to recast times.

    New Blue Magic
    In addition to spells attainable from the newly introduced soulflayers and the Poroggo, there will be new spells made available for mid-level players that have healing and dispelling effects.

    Existing Blue Magic
    The recast time for enfeebling blue magic spells such as "Chaotic Eye" and "Frightful Roar" will be reduced.


    Corsair Adjustments

    Corsair adjustments in the upcoming version update will mainly focus on the Quick Draw ability. Also, with the addition of the Rapid Shot job trait, ranged attacks will become a more viable combat tool for the Corsair.

    Quick Draw Accuracy
    A corsair's AGI will now affect the accuracy of Quick Draw. This will make it possible to improve the accuracy of Quick Draw by increasing the relevant attributes.

    Quick Draw Recast Time
    The recast time for Quick Draw will be reduced from 3 minutes to 1 minute.
    In accordance with this change, the Group 1 merit point ability Quick Draw Recast will now reduce recast time by 2 seconds instead of 6 seconds.

    Light Shot and Dark Shot
    Light Shot and Dark Shot will be changed to have the following enfeebling effects instead of inflicting damage:

    - Light Shot: Sleep
    - Dark Shot: Dispel

    *The Quick Draw additional effect of increasing the potency of enfeebling effects will remain unchanged.


    Puppetmaster Adjustments

    Several new automaton weapon skills will be introduced. High-level automatons will have new weapon skills available for use in various situations.

    - Melee Type
    Inflicts melee damage on a target and drains an amount of HP in proportion to the damage dealt.
    - Ranged Type
    Inflicts ranged damage on a target and occasionally has the additional effect of Stun.
    - Magic Type/Standard Type
    Inflicts melee damage on a target and occasionally has the additional effect of greatly reducing evasion for a brief period of time.

    * * *

    A new text command [/ignorepet] will also be introduced that will allow you to ignore the pets of others, including automatons, avatars, and charmed monsters.
    The text command can be used in the following way:

    /ignorepet: Displays current status when no subcommand is specified
    /ignorepet on: Ignore pet targets
    /ignorepet off: Allow pet targets

    *While using [/ignorepet on], you will be unable to target others' pets.
    *You will always be able to target monsters' pets, player character's pets in PvP, and Fellows regardless of the ignorepet command.

    I think they are trying to turn PUP into a melee brd almost. If the effects are frequent enough and the new WS's are good it may be a very good job. We will see.

    Yay new PUP weaponskills! Maybe they'll hit a lot harder too. Pretty excited for this, mainly because the new DRK adjustments are pretty shit, lol.

    Maybe if they made the RECAST time 2 seconds... >_>

    Light Shot and Dark Shot
    Light Shot and Dark Shot will be changed to have the following enfeebling effects instead of inflicting damage:

    - Light Shot: Sleep
    - Dark Shot: Dispel
    So it actually happened, COR get their own ghetto-dispel, this could be extremely interesting.

    All in all, this update looks to be made of a big ol sack of win. Can't wait :D

    Ok now that Ive calmed down from the initial excitement.

    I actually did email SE once about PLD. I explained to them, the fundamental flaw in pure blood tanking is the fact that PLDs are still bound to the same blood tanking rules as anything else in the game. This includes enmity lost while taking dmg. It always bothered me that a job specializing in holding hate and taking dmg, takes so much dmg and loses hate while doing so. In order to fix it they need to make PLDs specialized in dmg reduction by giving us better JTs that reduced physical dmg and eliminate the idea of losing so much hate when taking dmg.

    These modifications are a good step. They have some work to do still imo to make the overall PLD population more appealing to tanking, especially end game. Even though Im really fucking good at my job, I still see where overall other PLDs are just a humongous mp sink. This is more apparent when I get replaced in some situations XD. We go from doing ok, to struggling to keep the PLD alive.

    FYI: Sentinel is a 5min recast and 1 merit reduces it by 10 seconds. 1min 40sec can be reduced total. Ill have to wait to see how good this is before I give up my shield bash and cover merits.

    EDIT w/ comment:

    Shield Mastery
    In addition to granting a TP bonus, the Shield Mastery job trait will also prevent interruption to spell casting when an enemy's attack is blocked with a shield.
    PLD/NIN just became even more powerful. And I thought it was badass to see valor breeches and merits go off when casting ichi, sheild blocking, and still not getting interrupted.

    bow DoT fucking rox.

    on topic: it's not like paladin's need that much of a boost anyway, they're still one of the primary tanks for anything, and with the realization that /nin is far more efficient for almost all situations makes it so that damage mitigation isn't that much of an issue anymore.

    but, then again, these came from lolalla (I think), where the majority believe (and don't understand anything even remotely relating to endgame). also that even mentioning that PLD isn't the best option for all situations, and that in merits, they're best just subbing /nin and DD'ing is a carnal sin.

    Like I said, the top tier PLDs are loving this mindset of 90% of the PLD population that complains that PLDs suck. Keep complaing bitches, your ony making me even more powerful XD.
