RNG: Possibly adding an ability that helps decrease enmity. Or an ability that offers double-powered attacks that consumes double the ammo.

Take half decade for them to realize that

Also.. incoming level 99... lol..

Through version updates the final level cap for FFXI will be… level 99! Going to be an interesting time in Vana’diel!

A “new type” of merit points, in addition to an increase in maximum upgrades, is being considered for players that reach level 99, too!

So, get to 99 and go solo Kirin, Vrtra, etc?

Yeah, I don't by it.

Innin:
Reduces enmity and impairs evasion. Grants a bonus to accuracy, critical hit rate, and ninjutsu damage when striking target from behind.

Going to be pretty **** for RNG/nin at 99, I bet...

Sounds nice, but I can see it again. On the day of update, the abilities will NOT be added. They did it once so I smell a repeat.

They showed a WHM using vert and a PUP using chi blast, so its more then possible. Plus this update looked a bit .. crazy, like someone gave the dev's a green light to just go nuts. That, the server consolidation and the recent tendency to give whacky over-the-top updates (WHM) lead me to think their not gonna hold back on this and don't care if they break things doing it.

IF SE follows completely through with this (level cap being lifted in segments, so they may stop any time), then welcome to WoW.

****, I'm gonna have my work cut out for me updating the Sticky. I imagine that's gonna be a big deal site wide.

So upon waking up this morning and opening Allakhazam up... my initial response was "HOLY @#$%ING ASSCRACKERS!!!"

Now that i've had a chance to compose myself...

For us /WAR users... Does aggressor affect RANGED accuracy as well?

EDIT Atm it feels like they're slapping us in the face. Velocity shot is no longer RNG exclusive, so there goes THAT perk. I know the COR/RNGs will be happy. Might see more SAM/RNGs than we used to. I'm getting ahead of myself though. with a new level cap obviously new job traits and abilities should come with them. perhaps we'll see something to revitalize our job.

Nope. Unless you're a WAR main and you have Aggessive Aim merits.

it seems like the only one of our subs getting a perk then is /NIN. for those interested, remember that all the benefits/penalties of innin/yonin diminish over time. i don't think anyone's actually done the math yet but i believe the general agreement in the ninja forums is everything starts at +30/-30 and diminishes to +5/-5 after about 2 minutes, with both abilities being linked to a 5 min recast timer. i can see pld/nins getting a perk outa yonin's enmity spike at least and war/nins and thf/nins going nuts with innin's crit bonus but i don't think it will be THAT great for us. i could be wrong though. hard to say. SE loves to nerf certain JA's when subbed

EDIT: TY Aryden. Last time i asked on the forums about it no one had really checked it out. shoulda wikied first. silly me.

I know they will have to carefully re-adjust a lot of things until lvl99 cap is arrived. It's just too much new stuff... something we didn't see it over the first 6-7 years of the game. Now they burst them out at once (well... about 1 year period of time, I suppose). The things they do will be that "break" or "make" kind of deal.

* Increases the damage of Mijin Gakure when behind the enemy, as if it were a ninjutsu spell, the increase seems to conform to +30%.





Basically, unless they add in some really incredible job abilities/traits for Rng, we're going to be pretty hosed. Sam/Rng or Cor/Rng with v.shot getting the 17% -delay and +17% ratt id going to hurt us pretty bad.

SAM/WAR with PLM does. Unless GKT gets an amazing new WS and SAM doesn't use PLM ever again.

This level cap adjustment makes me feel a bit bad for the relic wielders ><

Naa they already said they're going to have some new uber hard relic upgrade quest. Of course that may mean you get to grind your Yoichinoyumi for another 3 years or have it become an expensive piece of town gear.

I don't think a COR/RNG is going to switch from melee TP to shooting TP if they have a multihit weapon. Price of steel bullets alone would make it prohibitory. Unless a level 80 bullet comes into play that is far more cost effective to craft.

And a RNG still will be far superior in damage to a COR simply because of weapon options, ammo options, A skill and Acc. All the chaos/hunters rolls in the world won't close that gap.

If anything it'll further cement /WAR and add /NIN to the list of best COR subs.

I'll take Berserk and Aggressor over V.Shot for most things COR related any day, at least assuming Lv.99 enemies have the same amount of COR-melee potential as Lv.75 ones do. And Innin has potential as well.

Besides if anything take a look at RNG/COR. You'll be able to destroy COR in Quick Draw damage unless its gimped.

They aren't using a video for what was mentioned(vert/chi), they're using the official page. The image itself is here. The page it's from is here, and you need to select Level cap increase you'll see the picture at the bottom of "Level Cap Considerations".

Just wanted to point this out, won't affect many RNGs but:

KC RNG will most likely suck balls at 99. The reason is skill gap will get even wider between A+ and E, so unless we got another boatload of accuracy bonus traits, KC won't be able to connect with sh*t at 99. Perhaps one of the magean (or whatever it is) weapon augment quests will let us put Acc+30 on it though, who knows.
