After watching a Youtube video about Brain Crack (NSFW only due to him mentioning the Blue Nudity in Watchmen). I decided i want to unload my ideas for everyone to hear about how SE can improve the THF job.
1st: New JAs and Job Tweeks
Let me get the easy ones out of the way, Fix Perfect Dodge!! Make it so everyone in the party gets the evasion bonus. Or Infinate SA on the first hit of every attack for 30s, so we can accumulate enough hate to actually tank during our evasion bonus.
Give us a Reverse Accomplice/Collaborator, i made a thread about this a while back. But basically it would let us place our current hate on another player. 25% on a 1m timer or 50% on a 5m timer, both would be tied to Accomplice and Collaborator so that you cant spam them together.
Mug, 15m recast? what were they thinking. Put it at a 5m recast and add a "bash" effect on it to have us stun.
An Evasion bonus JA that effects the entire party. WAR gets Warcry for atk, PLD gets Sentinel for DEF, MNK gets Mantra for HP, so why cant THF have one for Evasion?
Some general ones for everyone, not just THF, Raise HP merits to 20HP per merit. a possible 160HP for a melee in the long run has the same impact as 80MP for a mage.
Raise the max total Stat mod cap to 10, STR +5 and DEX +5, Can i Has it?
Raise the Max total on "Others" to 12. In general, everyone lvls the same things. Melee get Crits, Tanks get Enmity up, Mages get enmity down. Thier 2nd Chioce depends on the job, like RNG or DRK would get Enmity down and crits. People might actually pick Enemy critical hits down or Spell interruption down if we had more merits.
Now for THF merits.
Flee: Lower recast, usless, What about Raise the Duration 5s for each merit? Capped at 5, we would get 1m Flee.
Hide: No comment, nothing i can think of can make this useful.
SA and TA: Again, lower delay honestly too small make it worth while, people only merit these normally if they have NOTHING TO SPEND MERITS ON. How about a Damage increase for each merit? 1 merit would be the same as 1 DEX or 1 AGI on each JA.
Only one thing came to mind for me and that was the WoG completion item. We already have 2 Rings (Ult/Rajas) And 3 Earrings (Suppa/Hollow/Brutal). So what item can they add that wont be better then current Expansion items? A Neck Piece? No, we have Love Torque(not everyone has it, but in the end they would have to make something STRONGER then Love Torque to get us to wear it, making it go the way Homam Body will after MW comes out).
That leaves our backpiece. Sure there's a decent amount of good Backpieces for THFs, but leave it to SE to think of a Unique one to give us at the end of WoG. Everyone used Snipers and Flame rings until CoP and ToA rings. Suppa was always there, but nothing else unique until Brutal and Hollow. So if SE was going to add anything at the end of WoG, a backpiece would be the best slot to use without having to make the item stronger then older unique quested items. a Backpiece with Acc/Atk and some random effect they tend to add would be ideal for me.
This topic is just to put ideas out there, i Dont think SE will do most/all of these. But at least i got them out there for everyone to hear. If you have any Brain Crack you want to get rid of, post it here.
