Subjob BonusesFollow

I found this in one of the guides on the FFXI wiki site.

Many Player don't realize SCH gets a bonus for certain subs. So far confirmed are bonuses for BLM sub and WHM sub. With WHM sub, SCH has higher def and magic def, allowing them to better survive stealing hate. With BLM sub, SCH gets an additional bonus to black magic when in Dark Arts. this bonus appears to significantly increase both MACC and MATT. It should be noted that this is in addition to the MAB that /BLM gives to any job. This information was released at the Osaka Altana Festival and appears on the official Japanese FFXI website.

I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere else, though honestly I haven't searched too incredibly hard yet. Can anyone confirm or deny the above statement?

I am playing SCH as a DD during the lower levels in a duo. If not for this bonus I think I would switch to /WHM eventually for Stoneskin, but not if the sub would make a larger hit to my MACC and MATT than usual.

I doubt it, they seem to have taken that info from the poorly translated info from the Osaka event.

Also, from the discussion page of that "guide"

Based on testing conducted with a 75 scholar friend of mine, I think I can safely conclude that these bonuses are false. I believe that there was just a misinterpretation of the phrasing from the Osaka Festival. Black Mage as a sub gives Magic Atk. Bonus II, which is roughly 24% according to studies and info from the page. This, compared to a Red Mage sub, is only 4% higher. Also, the increases on INT on a Mithra Scholar was only 2 points. Thus, the average damage of spells (Aero III and Aero IV on Windsday + Wind weather on Spiders outside Aht Urghan) showed Black Mage sub doing more as predicted, but not enough that it would be hiding a specific bonus for Dark Arts.--Khellendros 17:16, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

So I guess not, though it would be nice if we got specific bonuses from certain subs.

BG caught that too, a little while ago. It was briefly debated and assumed that whoever put that blurb in the otherwiki was either miscalculating the mechanics or just stupid and not paying attention to the Job traits on Subjobs.
Before you ask a stupid crafting question, read this.

prolly just a misunderstanding of the abilities/traits you get from the subjobs in the first place..
