You guys have probably seen these already, but they're so very tasty that I want to see some DNC specific comments on them

SE wrote:
# Example Adjustments

* Introducing an ability that consumes TP to imbue party members with the Regain effect.
* Adding an ability that allows for a triple attack.


First one kind of struck me as odd that they decided to let us give TP to others instead of ourselves, but at the same time this + haste samba will make us more desirable to parties again, especially if the Regain effect is pretty potent. Not to mention it said "Regain" meaning we can prebuff parties with TP during idle times. On the other hand, all my excitement dies with the thought of this being a samba....
Edit: almost forgot about the dat mine vid. @ 0:42 it looks like both JAs are flourishes so lets hope they stay that way.

Second one...another reason for THFs to hate us lol. No other way to slice it especially if the recast timer is 5 min or less (lowest recast for Assassin's charge). The balance to this is, this will more than likely be a Flourish category 3 meaning no super buffing a CF or SF WS.

I'm skeptical of how desirable these will make DNC for parties. Groups either don't want us because we don't bring procs/TH or don't mind having us along because we're reliably self-sufficient, do various party stuffs, and can tank pretty gewd.

Plus they're likely to be shared recast timer things. At this point, we reaallly don't need more flourishes.

It's going to be a worthless TA Tier 3 Flourish (compared to Climactic for those with Rudra's or Reverse for those without) and either Dancer Shikikoyo (hopefully with a shorter timer) or a Regain or TP drain Samba.

If it's a TP drain samba that actually reduces monster TP, it'd be brokenly awesome for solo. Really though, they're probably thinking along the lines of Shikikoyo, and I'd be unsurprised to find out that it'll be a Waltz.

Speaking of Waltzes, splitting Waltz timers was conspicuously absent from the note. I guess we're boned.

Not trying to read too much into it but the wording "consumes TP to imbue party members with the Regain effect." really looks like it will be either a totally new JA, or a really disappointing waltz since thats how waltzes work. The mention of TP use and the non mention of FMs strongly rules out it being a jig or a flourish.

And I'm not going to completely rule out split waltz timers. They have given us so many tweaks recently without really announcing them ahead of time so it still may be coming.

Oh well, time will tell...

depend if the regain give enough tp back to pay itself
as for TA, with some luck it could use 3 climatic charges for stacking with rudra... i guess not, but would be nice.

now, about the "vision" of the job...

i know DNC can solo a lot of things, but come on, for SE, DNC is THE solo job ? not BST, not SMN, but DNC ?
what's wrong with them ? XD

to finish, after july update, were we stole thf sneack attack and sam stole us wild flourish, next we steal thf assasin's charge and sam steal us building flourish... seriously SE, are you even trying ?

If it is a waltz, its main use will be for giving tp to the person that needs to proc in abyssea. we'll be a glorified TP battery, yay...

Hybriding the jobs is bound to happen.
They make the contents pretty low-man friendly nowadays. So within 2-6 member of party, each person demanded to be able to do as many task as possible. The less people you can bring to get the jobs done, the better for you, because you'll spend less time doing the same thing over and over again.

If this TP ability is a waltz, meaning if it cannot be used when in Saber Dance, then I'm going to smash my head into a brick wall.

If it's a waltz, hopefully it's at least an AoE waltz. But then I fear it's recast time would be so atrocious as to even discourage backup healing...
