SE has been sneaky once again and added a few more tweeks for SMN that were not listed in the previous teasers.

# The amount of MP required to sustain avatars has been decreased for summoners level 76 and above.

Hastega / Crimson Howl / Frost Armor / Rolling Thunder / Lightning Armor
# The following blood pacts have had their effect duration lengthened commensurate with summoning magic skill, regardless of whether or not the skill has been increased to its maximum:
Shining Ruby / Glittering Ruby / Hastega / Crimson Howl / Frost Armor / Rolling Thunder / Lightning Armor / Ecliptic Growl / Ecliptic Howl / Noctoshield / Dream Shroud
# The effect of the summoner ability "Avatar's Favor" has been increased proportionally to the caster's summoning magic skill.
# The maximum amount of MP drainable using the summoner ability "Elemental Siphon" has been increased.


It appears that Hastega and the Ifrit, Shiva and Ramuh wards are receiving two buffs to duration. One is with relation to summoning magic skill and then an increase to the base duration as well. Hastega could already reach 5 minutes. I wonder what the new cap will be.

Avatar's favor has also been buffed. I guess we will have to do some testing to figure out how the effects increase with skill.

I just summoned Garuda and Shiva at lv80 and it appears they simply removed the 2tick perp increase between 75-80. We'll have to see if they simply add it back by level 85.

Also, the -perp staffs have one additional trial (250 pet kills of X family) that increases the staffs to -6 perp cost for the respective avatar.

It seems that SE sneaked in another SMN only item that wasn't listed due to the change they implemented in the armor's encryption system and the focus over the AF3.

Diabolos's Rope Rare Exclusive
Waist
DEF:3 "Blood Boon"+3
Diabolos perpetuation cost -1
Lv83 SMN

The credit goes to BG's julian and the rest of the armor's data can be found at http://juliandev.com/september/outputarmor.txt

So, it seems that we got a -perp option for Diabolos...
Hopefully, it won't take years to obtain/find it.

Tried the "new" ward durations.

At "Zomg almost max +skill" 80, my hastega lasted 4 min 30 seconds. Ice spikes lasted 4 min. Not awesome, but at least we are closing in on durations that actually make them worth using.

Needless to say I didn't get my last crest until midnight so I haven't seen new BPs yet.
