S-E just released a barrage of job ability adjustments scheduled in their next mini update and they included this snippet for thief.

Quote:

Thief

Effect range for the job abilities Accomplice and Collaborator will be expanded.


This is a really nice change since accompolater's effective range is only '10. I can't tell you how often I've been standing practically on top of a mage and unable to reach them with it, and it's especially problematic when I'm tanking and the mage is trying their darndest to keep the heck away from a mob's special attacks so every time I edge closer to get their hate they back up Smiley: frown.

I was always of the opinion that accompolater should have the same distance as maximum spellcasting/ranged attack distance because it's primary function is to take hate from squisheys, and often times those squisheys are standing as far from the tank as possible so if we're in melee range (or if our hate is capped from meleeng a NM with strong atmas) running back and forth can be a detriment.

This is actually a really nice change and I'm looking forward to it. S-E's been on a friggin roll. Maybe they can do something to make despoil actually useful while they're at it (it's possible....just do something like add a 100% activation (one time per mob only) treasure hunter proc and that would be nice). But that aside, this is going to be a really nice perk.

I love the word accompolator!

Yeah, I have just taken to periodically asking mages to come in range so I can use collaborator on them. I am generally tanking anyway, so its better than moving the mob on top of them, and I assure that they are in range to actaully lose the enmity that way. The extended range will be nice though.

I'm still frustrated that they aren't seperating the recast timers.

Use Accomplice and can't Collaborator for 5 minutes? Why?

Not even the top 5 in those updates, but compared to a STR/acc/haste ability now giving ghetto-DA, a worthless 2 hour becoming useful, etc, you can't expect tons. lol

This is very nice, now a BLM doesn't have to take one in the face when flee's down when he takes hate before collaborator goes off.


PS: What's accomplice again?
That's a joke, don't rage.
