Battle Balance Adjustment: TP Gained through Use of a Weaponskill
Since increasing the level cap to 99, we have been making systematic adjustments to jobs, battles and various other parameters.
The reason being that since our original plan was to maintain the level cap at 75, it was necessary to make adjustments to allow continued growth up to level 99 and to be able to add other types of new content.
We plan on addressing the following three issues with the next round of adjustments.
- Resistance to Enfeebling Magic
We will be removing the instances of enfeebling magic not taking effect on monsters and HNMs that have resistance to specific elements. A very small number of special monsters will maintain the ability to completely resist enfeeblement, but it will become possible to cast enfeebling spells on most monsters that used to resist outright.
※Spells will not take effect every time and spells may still be resisted if your enfeebling skill is low. Monsters with high resistance will be enfeebled for a shorter amount of time.
- Cure Potency
Cure potency will be affected more significantly by healing magic skill. If a player has high healing magic skill, cure potency will be greatly increased, but low healing magic skill will have almost no effect on cure potency. The effect of skill level on cure potency will vary based on the type of cure, but cures lower than Cure V will be affected the most. Note that Curaga, Cura and Waltzes will not be affected.
*Cure I-IV: Up to 1.4 times the normal cure potency
*Cure V-VI: Almost no change
With this adjustment combined with the increase of cure potency mentioned earlier, we would like to increase opportunities for mages jobs other than white mage to serve as healers.
- TP Gained through Use of a Weaponskill
We will be adjusting the specs of save TP so that it serves as the minimum possible TP amount gained through using a weaponskill. In other words, the greater the amount of TP gained through the weaponskill and the save TP value itself will be the actual TP gained.
*Save TP value is 20, TP gained through the weaponskill is 25: 25TP
*Save TP value is 20, TP gained through the weaponskill is 15: 20TP
*Save TP value is 20, weaponskill misses: 20TP
The TP gained after using a weaponskill will be more stable, but there will be fewer instances where players gain a very large amount of TP through one weaponskill. Also, with the adjustments to save TP, samurai’s job ability Hagakure’s save TP effects will be increased.
We would like the discussion in this thread focus on “TP Gained through Use of a Weaponskill” exclusively.
