Doesn't make any sense to not update all jobs at the same time. Can you imagine if every battle job but THM and PUG got an update, but meanwhile those two jobs were left broken? That doesn't even make sense.
They said they're going to update CUL and ALC in patch 1.20, so stop complaining and be patient. They have their reasons of implementing stuff the way they do. Anyway I thought you weren't playing this game anymore because of the changes to the mage classes? Just go back to XI and stop crying.
I don't play mages anymore but I still liked cooking fishing and alchemy.
It is easy to say "oh stop crying" if you don't play the classes that are being impacted.
I would be upset too, but I would able to step back and understand that this game is a work in progress. Not everything I like is bound to stay in this game. I said stop crying not because I was trying to be mean, I was saying it because we don't know what they're doing with CUL and ALC and just because they didn't make changes to them now doesn't mean they're not going to get changes at all. The Devs taking out a bunch of CUL and ALC mats won't affect things much considering most people didn't bother buying items from those classes before this patch. If patch 1.20 comes and there aren't any changes to CUL and ALC feel free to complain.
EDIT: Also you complaining about stuff that people have known that is coming in patch 1.20 shows how often you keep up with the game. Edited, Sep 30th 2011 4:42pm by MutamixBubblypots
