Job Points Additions and Adjustments

 During the March version update of Final Fantasy XIV, a new job points system was implemented for players to further customize and power up their characters. In the upcoming May version update, this new system will see several additions and adjustments made. Two new categories of upgrades will be implemented per job, with more slated for later version updates.

 To help alleviate some of the difficulty of obtaining capacity points, a new chain bonus will be implemented to increase yields awarded to players with successive kills, as well as increasing the base yields of monsters above a certain level. Lastly, changes will be made to monster capacity point yields in the Cirdas Caverns [U], Rala Waterways [U], Yorcia Weald [U], and Ra'Kaznar [U] areas.
