Is the movement speed issue only affecting SOME people and not ALL people? I have logged out and back in several times, and it does not fix the problem. Some people I've talked to in game have told me they are having the same problem yet others are telling me their speed is unchanged. When I try running alongside someone that is claiming to not have the problem, I do run at the same speed.
But I can definitely see/feel the movement speed decrease. I run about as fast as the pre-patch-engaged run speed. It is taking forever to get anywhere, and it's driving me nuts >.< Can some more people chime in and let us know if they are/are not having movement speed issues?
It seems to be affecting everyone, I'm yet to find anyone running faster than me. If you've ever tried to get a consensus on something like this before, in my experience, most people aren't observant enough to pick out somewhat subtle changes without a direct side-by-side comparison. Second Wind has also been nerfed as a sub skill and buffed as a main skill. Late 30's PUG's now heal for ~500 HP, other jobs subbed in the 40's now ~200 HP. This is not mentioned in the patch notes.

It's so blatantly slower though - I can't believe there are people that DON'T notice it.
I actually noticed that happening BEFORE the patch earlier this week. Specifically while leaving LL. The walk across the long bridge outta town seemed even longer. I told LS people, but they just figured I was sleepy. Now some of them are seeing it also. I did too, but right after logging in after patch and, coincidentally, leaving LL.
Now after playing for a while I'm not noticing it. Though I don't think anything changed, but my eyes got used to it perhaps. Similar to how much better the game is running, it felt strange(but awesome) and new at first, now it's just the way it is. Could simply be something like that? Differences in how people see things: Some can't help but notice it, others may never catch it. Edited, Nov 26th 2010 3:42pm by TwistedOwl
