I wrote this great artical on the official forums thought i would share guys.
There has been discussion amoungst some peers who play FFXIV with me about the potential loss of Physical levels. Some even think it should warrent a new poll regarding this issue alone taking into account the simple fix method this article proposes.
The Devs have outlined that physical levels points alotment as it stands will be changed to a integrated preset on a class by class basis. Potentially making it not possible to be as diverse as it currently can be as it works now pre patch.
We would like to keep the flexability.
Propose these changes then offer the choice of which method should be used and a different answer may be seen.
It is felt that simple changes to the current system might be best and a serious look at the question of weather it should be changed at all. Please take a look at this simple list of changes that might negate the need to substantually change the fundamentals of the game engine.
List of proposed changes:
•When you reasign points it should reassign all points instead of a anoyingly small amount.
•add some ui elements to alot points faster then currently possibly maybe a dropdown or number ticker like the ones used in the sell ui elements for bazaar pricing. including a option to used preset class recomended spec choices
•save assigned points and reload automatically on class change when you apply new weapons. for example you might need to alot points to DEX as a weaver but maybe you are a conjurer or thaumaturge and dont have DEX with current system it would take days to reallot to be optimal to make 1 item.
•save the actions assignments to make changing classes not need such a involved manual overhaul after every simple job/class change.
This simple list of changes to the current system would let us be as flexable as we need to be on the go.
What do you think?
