New Special Job Abilities

 In a follow-up to a series of new job abilities being added to Final Fantasy XI, the abilities for Monk, Red Mage, Ninja, and Corsair have been added to the official Final Fantasy XI Test Server. Monk's new ability acts to significantly boost their maximum HP, Red Mage's offers an ability to improve the accuracy of their next enfeebling spell by drastic amounts, Ninja's increases auto-attacks based on the number of Utsusemi shadows they possess, and Corsair's functions to reduce recast times for the special job abilities of all party members in range!

Let us know what you think of these most recent changes on the ZAM forums!
