So I don't know if some of you have read the Famitsu interview with Yoshi P but we have some things to talk about now!

Changes to other Jobs and Classes
What about black mage?

Yoshida: For black mage, there's a bug related to casting speed which has put its DPS ahead of other jobs. In patch 2.1, we'll be fixing this, which should put the overall DPS of a black mage on par with that of other DPS jobs.

As a general policy, do you plan to perform downgrades to individual jobs or upgrades to other jobs in the future?

Yoshida: We don't plan to make negative corrections like this frequently in the future.


This obviously occurred due to the flarex3 'exploit' (I'd call it just taking advantage of mechanics). However, this has the following implication:

blizzard 3 > fire 3 > fire 1 will no longer grant the spell speed buff to the fire 1 as a result of the above.

I don't know how you all feel about this, but I'm pretty bummed. This was one of the most fun aspects of BLM for me to toy around with and will completely kill my DPS come patch day. You can see that MNK is getting a lot of love and so are DRGs. DRGs needed it, yes, but MNKs already parse almost equal to me. So with a buff to them and a nerf to us...it's not looking good!

What do you all think?
