Matsui talked about getting skills etc sorted before the dungeons are released in 1.18.

Patch must be this first stage of the Battle changes.

Whoop whoop.

I think this will just be quests. Yoshi-p already has said this patch may be squeezed in to add quests that had been finished, and he said it wouldn't be very big. Still, more stuff is moar stuff!

Yoshi-P also mentioned that they were going to try and get some groundwork out before the mega-patch. This looks like it could be that. Now just have to wait for the patch notes:).

Yeah, don't expect too much for this patch. Any patch is nice, but this one will just implement a few small things, so don't get your expectations above the sky!

Still, expect people to complain. The main changes are coming next month, and not on Monday.

^ I will quote the above sentence on Monday when complaining threads arrive.

It's a letter patch so it'll be minor bug fixes and small changes (things like fixing Unknown Soldier on Palamecia who teleported out a fight 6 days ago and never returned).

I would agree that the initial skill changes will probably be part of this but in all seriousness I wouldn't expect too much apart from a laundry list of complaints once the patch notes are published.

Someone in my linkshell did say last night that with the introduction of Jobs they'd need to finish of the classes first (as the foundation), and wouldn't it be great it this patch gave us Archanist and Musketeer? I'd love that but it'll never happen. :p

We may be surprised to see less complaining this time around.
I must admit I was one of the complainers the first "letter" patch. Now that I'm used to it, there's a mixture of understanding and lingering embarrassment at not understanding it before!
Most everyone in my LS grasps the general concept of a "letter" patch as well. If that's any indicator as to the general poulations grasp of the patch flow, I think we'll see a lot less complaining.
