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 .
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.
