    Phantom Roll XI Adjustment 9-19-11

    Has anyone figured out what this is? By XI adjustment, I'm referring to this in the update notes:

    o The effect for rolling 11 with the corsairs' Phantom Rolls has been altered.
    I've tested a few things and thus far the following are what I have compiled:

    - We do not get a third Roll effect even when under 2 simultaneous XI effects
    - The Recast time of Phantom Roll is still (Base - 30 seconds) when an XI is active
    - We are still immune to Bust effects while an XI roll is active
    - There is no noticeable difference in the actual bonuses provided by rolls when hitting an XI
    Tested with Tactician's Roll and Chaos Roll, both producing expected pre-update results upon rolling an XI.


    Is there anything else anyone can think of that may have been altered? Anything that needs to be tested?

    Things I have not yet tested:
    - Range
    - Duration

    I'll update this as I go through the list

    .... Never mind. It's an animation and a sound effect. Serves me right for playing with no sound.

    Well, considering the XI buff is so powerful as is, I'm not really disappointed. Honestly, I was more worried they were going to nerf it.

    Well we've been asking for a new animation, so that's nice. Previously the party only knew if we busted. Now they know when we've hit the jackpot.

    Howdy!

    It’s been quite some time since we announced that we would be revamping corsair’s Phantom Roll effects, but I have some additional information about the planned changes.

    ※Currently these features are in-development and testing and are subject to change.

    • ※We are making adjustments to make the amounts larger for high numbers and lucky numbers.
      ※We are also planning on increasing the bonus associated with having a Roll's main job in the party.

    As long as there are no major development/testing problems, we are planning to introduce these changes on the test server middle or late January.

    As usual, please let us know your feedback!

    Thanks for the update Carnate. I think this is the first time I've ever seen SE give us the values for PR. ALways had to figure them out ourselves.

    One question about the new Gallant's roll. Are the values a flat amount of -DT (like phalanx) or a percentage (like -DT gear)?

    Otherwise my biggest comment is: why so much focus on rolls no one ever uses? It seems Evokers was the roll most needing a boost with BRD's and RDM's getting significant refresh boosts recently. Admittedly DNC's roll was pretty weak but even with the modest boost, its not likely to get used.

    In any event I can at least see Gallants and Healer's roll being used on a two tank party type setup. Combined with Scherzo and earthen armor that could really help tanks stay alive.

    Status on the 3rd roll slot? Was it canned or is it being kept for something in the future?

    These rolls will still see very little use after the buffs because Miser/Tactician is that good. Unless we're looking at a 3rd roll slot, I see these going back into obscurity within a few days.
