    Changes/Additions to Chocobo Raising
    Related Information>>

    http://www.playonline.com/pcd/update...9WH3cX1/02.jpg

    Kamp Kweh -- A place where adventurers can bring their chocobos to interact with others, as well as view the conditions of the other participants’ animals is now open for business.

    The Chocobo Hot and Cold Game -- A new treasure-hunting activity for chocobos and their owners has been introduced.





    A new quest to obtain the new chocobo ability “treasure finder” has been introduced. This ability will increase a chocobo’s ability to locate treasure when playing the Chocobo Hot and Cold Game.

    Two new beneficial statuses “bursting with vitality” and “sparkling with intelligence” have been added. When a chocobo is affected by these, not only will training programs yield better results, but the chocobo will also be more receptive to physical and mental stimulation.

    Previously, a chocobo being in love would only negatively affect the success rate of its training. However, now this status will sometimes benefit the chocobo.

    When taking your chocobo for a walk, it may now find items for you.


    Changes to Besieged

    Players can now earn limit points by participating in Besieged.

    When players are transported out of Al Zahbi due to player number restrictions, all HP-draining status effects will be removed.

    An issue where, under rare circumstances, players who were KO’d during a siege of Al Zahbi lost experience points has been addressed.


    Mog Locker capacity has been increased to 70 items.


    Several new quests originating in the Treasures of Ah Urhgan area are now available.


    Players can now confirm the Ashu Talif quest offer status by speaking with the NPC who originally accepted the offer.


    The timing at which several Aht Urhgan mission events become available for viewing via the event replay feature has been adjusted.


    Transportation to Tu’Lia

    After meeting certain requirements, players will now be able to teleport to Tu’Lia from the Hall of Transference located within the spires of Holla, Dem, and Mea.


    [Battle-Related]
    Monster placement has been adjusted in the following areas: Bhaflau Thickets, Alzadaal Undersea Ruins, Caedarva Mire


    The following paladin abilities/traits have been adjusted:

    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.

    *The recast time and MP required for casting Frightful Roar has been reduced.


    Corsair Adjustments

    A new job trait "Rapid Shot" has been added.

    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.

    Category Term
    Game Terms Salvage
    Game Terms Mog Locker
    Text Commands /ignorepet


    Due to the extreme popularity of the kraken club and trouble arising as a result of a large number of players attempting to acquire the item, the monster that previously dropped the club (Lord of Onzozo) will do so no longer. A new method of obtaining the item is currently under consideration and will be implemented shortly. There are no plans on changing the drop rate of the item in question. However, the development team would like to grant players more opportunities to obtain it.

    Please check back here for further updates on this issue.


    SALVAGE
    [Objective]
    The main objective of Salvage missions is the exploration of the archaeological remains of four newly opened areas (Zhayolm Remnants, Arrapago Remnants, Bhaflau Remnants, Silver Sea Remnants) and the eradication the demonic beasts that rule their deepest depths. However, this will not be as easy as it sounds. A powerful force known only as the Pathos of Alzadaal limits the abilities of all who enter, making them easy prey for the hordes of fiends waiting in the shadows.
    To complete these missions, alliances must work as one, or the treasure that slumbers in the remnants’ bowels will remain lost for eternity.
    http://www.playonline.com/pcd/update...u7oSD2/S01.jpg

    [Participation]
    1. Though adventurers must have completed some of the Treasures of Aht Urhgan missions, there are no mercenary rank requirements.

    2. Adventurers must be level 65 or above, and be in a party/alliance of between 6 to 18 players.

    3. In addition to meeting the aforementioned criteria, adventurers also must possess a “remnants permit.” This key item can be obtained in exchange for Assault points (2000) and will grant entry to any one of the four remnants (free of charge). Please note that a permit can only be used once, and adventurers must wait at least 24 hours (Earth time) before they will be allowed to purchase another.
    http://www.playonline.com/pcd/update...u7oSD2/S02.jpg


    [Area Reservation]
    Unlike Dynamis or Limbus, Salvage uses a battle system similar to Assault, meaning that area reservations are not required.
    Also, Salvage mission time limits are all set at 100 minutes, and there are no items or monsters that can extend that limit.
    *After entering one of the four areas, you will not be able to leave or move to another area on foot until your alliance’s reservation period has expired. However, you can transport out of the area using magic or temporary items, or by returning to your home point after being KO’d.


    [The Pathos of Alzadaal]
    When adventurers begin a Salvage mission, they may have as many as 20 different limits hampering their abilities, equipment, attributes, and more. The only way to reach the guardian of the area and retrieve its treasure is to remove these limits. However, removing these limits requires the defeat of the other monsters roaming the remnants.

    http://www.playonline.com/pcd/update...oSD2/S03en.jpg

    *The encumbrance icon will not disappear until all equip slots have been reopened.


    (1) Obliviscence
    (2) Debilitation
    (3) Encumbrance

    http://www.playonline.com/pcd/update...oSD2/S04en.jpg

    [Imbued Items]
    The Pathos of Alzadaal can only be neutralized with special potions and medicines known as “imbued items.” Most of these items are pathos-specific and will only cure one ailment. They can be found on monsters roaming throughout the remains.
    One of the keys for success in the Salvage missions is determining in which order members of the alliance receive the imbued items.

    *Players must dispose of any imbued items they bring back from the remains before they will be allowed to enter again.

    http://www.playonline.com/pcd/update...oSD2/S04en.jpg


    [Steps for Salvage Success]
    Exploration
    There are several routes through the various remnants. However, once one route has been chosen, all others become locked. The moment any alliance member uses one of the teleportation devices, all members will be instantly warped to the next area. It is vital that an alliance talks over their plan of attack before delving into the uncharted depths.

    http://www.playonline.com/pcd/update...u7oSD2/S06.jpg

    Imbued Items
    Upon entry to the remnants, all alliance members will be greatly affected by the Pathos of Alzadaal. It is highly recommended that players do their best to find imbued items and remove as many restrictions as possible before moving on to the deeper parts of the dungeon. One way to approach this is by talking over which alliance members should receive which items and when, and decide on a simple lot system to reduce confusion.


    Temporary Items
    Treasure coffers filled with temporary items are located all about the remnants. These items will play an important role at the beginning of an alliance’s journey when many of its members are hampered by the Pathos of Alzadaal.
    *Temporary items cannot be traded, so players must decide beforehand who is to receive them.
    *Treasure coffers will not disappear until all the items in it have been taken out.

    Explain how getting limit points in Besieged, making K. Club more accessible, being able to teleport to sky, and having a larger mog locker is empty and disappointing.

    The thing about the kraken club is very interesting to me, as it is the item I've been saving up for for quite some time. Hope it gets much cheaper :D
