This could be bad, really bad.

Other Adjustments
• VIT will play a role in calculating damage taken from critical hits.

This is a quote from the new update.

If this is player only, great.

But it never is... in the past, calculations for H2H/Dual Weild/Ja's etc, have also had effects on mobs.

This will imply that all Critical Hit WS's and Critical Hit's will be receiving a damage gimp. Considering most mobs do possess fairly high VIT, even if it ends up being a 10-15% Damage Decrease from Crit's it'll be big enough to notice. Especially outside of Abyssea.

:( not very happy right now.

Well look at it this way. It affects all DDs that rely on crit damage ws, which are basically all except WAR/DRK/SAM/RNG

Warriors without Ukon/Maschu use Raging Rush and Rangers with emp have Jishnu's Radiance, both of which are critical ws. So basically everyone but Sam/Drk will hurt if it affects mobs too.

Ranger has Jishnu's Radience but ranged critical hits are also a tiny damage boost compared to a melee critical hit so I'd lump RNG in there with DRK and SAM.

Has anyone tested if the agi=subtle blow change was just players? or mobs too. That would probably be our best bet to speculate on this.

Would be pretty simple to just get hit by a decent level thf mob or something a bunch and find out if mob agi effects how much tp it gives players.

It would be a start anyway.

As far as I know, it was just players. So I'm not really sure why people are Chicken Little-ing over this just yet.

I should also point out that AGI doesn't necessarily translate to Subtle Blow *exactly*; they're two separate calculations that contribute toward a similar effect. In other words, AGI continues to reduce enemy TP gain even after you've capped Subtle Blow. Everyone probably knows that already, but just had to say it anyway.

Confirmed: VIT change will only affect players
