    Dynamis and Limbus Get a Makeover! (08/04/2008)

    http://www.thefortunehunters.net/lolcats/relic0.jpg

    The September version update just keeps getting bigger and better! We would like to take this opportunity to announce our intentions to implement some all-new features to both Dynamis and Limbus, as well as a few adjustments brought in by popular demand!

    Blue mage / Corsair / Puppetmaster Artifacts and Relics

    The wait is finally over!
    At long last, the highly anticipated relic gear sets of the blue mage, corsair, and puppetmaster jobs are here! Rounding out the standard 5-piece sets, the more recently added back and waist items will also be added to September's version update. Players with these jobs can now look forward to obtaining the ingredient items required to temper their artifact and relic gear with even greater enhancements!
    When considering how to best introduce this equipment, the development team weighed many options, including the possibility of entirely original methods. In the end, however, the decision was made that such means would be largely unfair by rendering only players with these jobs capable of accessing new game content. Therefore, all of the above items will be procured in the same way as their predecessors, namely via exploits in the Dynamis and Limbus areas.

    Drop Rates

    Great care has been put into assuring that current drop rates will see no negative impact from the introduction of the new blue mage, corsair, and puppetmaster gear sets. Players can rest easy knowing that any and all necessary adjustments to the drop rate ratios have been considered and implemented to maintain a fair and balanced game experience.
    Furthermore, the overall drop rates of select Dynamis areas, covering the relic gear of all jobs old and new, are set to be raised as well.

    Entry Fees

    In light of the additions and adjustments detailed above, the entry fees for both Dynamis and Limbus were also brought under careful reconsideration.
    Thanks in part to the ground being made by the Special Task Force in combating RMT-related activities, and subsequent normalization of the game economy, the following reduction in price to entry items will be implemented in the upcoming September version update.

    Timeless Hourglass: 1,000,000 gil -> 500,000 gil
    Cosmo-Cleanse: 30,000 gil -> 15,000 gil

    Holy shit this time they're actually raising the drop rate, instead of people saying it after every patch unfounded.

    Also: BLU af2 is fucking hot

    Is it me, or the only thing really different about the BLU AF is the body?

    The limbus price cut is a shocker, and totally unnecessary. But I can't complain about the half-price relics. Interesting how vague they were in their wording about the fact that toau af2 will be acquired via drops in dynamis, without completely convincing you that the actual armor itself will drop.

    Also, fuck the cor relic. Why oh why couldn't they use Luzaf's armor ; ;

    PS: They sneaked in an announcement that the update's in september.

    Corsair AF2 looks HORRID. Should have kept it inkeeping with the rest of the outfit and made it a worn-brown, like the hat, hands, legs AND Feet... Blue looks so out of place...

    Edit: Also, PLZGODLETTHEHATHAVE "Enhances 'Phantom Roll' Effect" PLZPLZPLZPLZPLZ... And why the hell didn't we get Luzaf's Purple and White outfit, that shit was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO hot...

    Nothing about instancing Dynamis/Limbus a la Salvage? That could turn out for the worse, I can see more people doing lowman Xarc/Beau Dynamis now since they basicly cut cost in half. Limbus probably won't be impacted that much since people already could solo their entry fees back. Nice that you only need 3 coins now to get your entry fee back, though Anc.Coins market has been pretty grim.

    PLEASE GOD MAKE DYNAMIS INSTANCED

    Seriously, if they don't instance it, the already bad situation with scheduling runs with other shells will become 10X worse

    idk how to take that really. Does this mean we'll be making our own af2 after we get ingredients off limbus/dynamis or does it mean regular af dropping from dynamis and we upgrade to+1 via limbus ;\

    I'm both excited and annoyed at this. AF+1? Hells yeah, I love limbus. But..Dynamis?! Ugh. If they had just told us that AF armor would be in dynamis, I would have started doing Dynamis long ago. Now I'm gonna have to try and join a shell, compete with others, blah blah blah. I hate dynamis. /complain
