It depends on the abilities. A WHM with the ability to use their MP affectivly can be incredibly effective. On one hand, you have MP which can be tough if you don't know how to optimize it, but on the other hand, items can be just as bad. It'll kill already sparce inventory space, running out of healing items mid battle, "Oh dude! I left all my shit in my MH! Can we break so I can go back and get it?". I'm very curious what an item healing job would have in terms of traits, and abilities.

Yes, I am defending the mage. ;)


well, you can't really compare the 'ultimate-optimal mp using-knows what he's doing-ready to go' white mage to some doofus who forgets his shit in his mog house, hasn't done all the gobby bags, doesn't bring enough healing items. Thats just comparing a good player to a bad one.

I think if this theoretical chemist was as good a chemist as he/she can be, whm will get a run for it's money. and it's about time (like the game chrono trigger).

<satire>

This game causes so much drama!

It ruins lives, NO RLY i saw it happen, i have screenshots.

It's such a dinosaur!

People still play this? SE still offers support? Egads man!

</satire>

Maybe SE really will make this game live as long as EQ, heh. i didn't see another expansion coming, personally. Cool for the people still playing.

I'm finally ready to feel the sting of getting booted from an endgame party because the chemist needs an invite.

Of course it'll take two years after its release before any promised features become available. More useless jobs and other tedious garbage. I've given this game another go a few times already, but never again.


what are you smoking bluemage and corsair both own.


yep im still playing :o at least until psu expansion drops.

I'll believe it when I see it. Why don't you play PSU now so you'll be all leveled up for the expansion? It'll take forever to catch up to everyone else at 80 when it drops.

By the time it drops, you guys should have lv100, which isn't very far off for us on JP. She'll get up there lickety-split if you guys ever get Famitsu Cup (or whoever decides to sponsor it for US) where the missions have a 2.5x EXP modifier.

Looks kinda cool, but shouldn't they add more than just 1 job? spinning.gif

And doesn't this come out at EXACTLY the same time as PSU's expansion? I think I'll get the PSU one instead beigebigrazz.gif

WARNING New challenger approaching!!!!

A Scholar appears!





Also, the manliest character on FFXI:



QUOTE
Scholars have knowledge of both White and Black magic, as well their own exclusive set of spells. They are not exceptional mages, but rather combine abilities from various schools. Scholars also appear to have some use as a support job to other magic-using classes.

By the way, Scholars will not be hitting anything with books. Their basic abilities are “White Grimoire” and “Black Grimoire.” They function similar to a Samurai’s Hasso and Seigan, in that the Scholar chooses between wielding White Magic and Black Magic, but not both at once. There is no time limit on this ability, so technically you could remain on one set of magic forever.

“White Grimoire” lets one specialize in White Magic by lowering cast times and reducing MP cost. In addition, Healing, Divine, and Enhancing skills are all raised, and unique abilities are unlocked. Conversely, Black Magic spells have their MP cost increased and casting time lengthened. However, you are free to switch back and forth at any time.

With Scholar as a support job, using the Black Grimoire will boost those respective skills, perhaps allowing White Mages to net better results with Drain and Aspir, or land the oft-resisted Paralyze on an enemy.

Scholar brings with it a number of abilities to help one skillfully manipulate magic. There are a set of abilities that can only be used with either the White or Black Grimoire. Similar to a Summoner's Blood Pacts, these abilities are tied to the same recast timer. However, a Scholar has the ability to store up uses of these abilities. For example, say you have an ability with a recast timer of 4 minutes. Normally you would activate it and then have to wait 4 minutes to use it once again. However, a Scholar is able to store up these recasts to a maximum of 3 consecutive activations.

There are also various spells that come unique to Scholar. One allows you to change the designated weather for a target party member. Another causes a great amount of DoT damage. Weather changing magic may not seem like much, but it is great for accommodating preferred spells in battle. Not only does it enhance magic accuracy and damage, but can activate certain pieces of armor.

I think they plan to drop one more job, but in the meantime I do think the scholar is interesting. We'll see how it turns out when it hits.
