Battle Adjustments (08/23/2007)
, Aug 23, 07 5:10 AM.
August will see adjustments to two-handed weapon wielding and several jobs.
If you missed our description of grips and two-handed weapons, be sure to check it out. In this edition, we will be covering job enhancements.
The duration for which a beastmaster can maintain a pet invoked with the "Call Beast" ability will be extended. The new length of time, though varying depending on the type of pet brought forth, may be up to 90 minutes.
Additionally, when not engaged in combat, pet healing will be possible through use of the "Stay" ability. Finally, the experience penalty previously incurred by a beastmaster while using a charmed monster will be done away with.
After the version update, corsairs across Vana'diel will be the happy recipients of several job enhancements.
For starters, the effect of Phantom Roll will be augmented so that the effects can be felt even when neither a large nor Lucky Roll is made. To make a comparison, the efficacy of a corsair's roll will generally exceed that of a bard's song. Should a corsair roll an 11, the efficacy will, for the most part, exceed that of two bard's songs.
The length of immobility a corsair suffers during their rolls has also been shortened. In addition, the merit point-accessible ability "Fold" will function to reduce the likelihood of busting, as well as modifying the effect of rolls.
We will also be adding new gear that will further increase the range of Phantom Roll. When using the roll and this gear in tandem, even players engaged in combat at some distance from the corsair will fall within the area of effect. And as if that weren't enough, players can even expect new ammunition with rather enticing damage ratings.
The update also brings with it two all-new heads to supplement the puppetmaster's arsenal of automaton accoutrements.
The primary purpose of both heads is to grant magic bonuses: one for healing, and the other, elemental. For example, equipping the "healing" head will cause an automaton to undergo a healing magic power enhancement. As a result, subsequent cure spells will encompass all party members, rather than the puppetmaster alone.
Careful reconsideration has led us to raise the current skill limits for automatons as well. With these increases, puppetmasters can expect to see improved performance from their automata in such areas as attack power and accuracy, magic accuracy, and more!
Look forward to the release of even more details on the day of the update!

A little rougher than previous fights, but he still went down fairly easily.
Our 8th pair of Manopolas and our 4th Zucchetto dropped.
Congrats to Sendra and Morley
Dynamis has continued to be very good.
A very busy month

Over the last month we have tried some new things, but we haven't forgotten our old standby's.
Dynamis has been busy as usual and the drops have been fruitful.
Congrats to the following:
5/5 BST completed
Also congrats to Pieknakotka on Melee hose!
We tried our hand at Kurrea the last couple of Saturdays. There were no real issues to speak of. 6/6 on the drops.
Congrats to Tubesock, Colith, Finalevil, Fogoazul, Blakeyardburger, and Duriant on Galliard Trousers
Some of our newer members got their first chance to tangle with the Jailer of Hope and the Jailer of Justice. We didn't see any torques drop this time though.
Congrats to Blakeyardburger on Justice Sword.
Freebayes, Shadowtail, and Excedor each got a Hope Staff.
Finally we headed back up to play with the sky gods for the first time in a couple months. Congrats to Excedor on Byakko's Haidate, Seymoreaeons, Endol, and Hwaorang on Seiryu's Kote, and several others on various Abjurations.
One final note:
Temenos has been hell recently >.>

A second Omega this week yielded nearly the same results. This time we wound up with another pair of Manopolas and another Zucchetto.
Congrats to Beartooth and Magrayne.
