    Treasure Hunter Effect Amongst Jobs

    As an adjustment to the balance of Treasure Hunter at level 99, the below pets will have their Treasure Hunter effect changed to Treasure Hunter I.

    -Dipper Yuly
    -Faithful Falcorr
    ※These pets will have a base of Treasure Hunter I, but by using equipment that has “Pet: Treasure Hunter +” the effect will become stronger.

    Here is the premise regarding the hierarchy of the Treasure Hunter effect (from strongest to weakest).
    1. Thief
    2. Ranger
    3. Support job thief
    4. Other jobs
    ※As ranger received the new “Bounty Shot” as a support ability, it is now slightly more beneficial than a support job Treasure Hunter when effectively used.

    However, with the increase in the level cap from 75 to 99, this ordering has started to become ambiguous, so in order to clearly define the premise again, our current aim was to find adjustments appropriate to follow this.

    The prime example of changes to this hierarchy were with the increase in the Treasure Hunter effect for familiar pets due to the level cap increase and we would like to start by adjusting this area.

    The development team looked into routes to adjust this, such as changing the pet’s job, lowering the stats of the pets in exchange for not lowering the Treasure Hunter effect, revamping the pet’s special abilities, etc., but ultimately they made the decision to preserve their fighting capabilities and only reduce their Treasure Hunter effect. To go along with this adjustment, we will be easing up on the materials required to synthesize “Lucky Broth” which created with the basis of the Treasure Hunter effect in mind.
    ※The current focus of this adjustment is for familiar pets, but in the future if automatons and avatars are given Treasure Hunter, we will be adopting the same policy.


    To give a bit more insight, the development team looked into a completely different direction on this at first, exploring if they could establish proper balance to follow this idea by changing the drop rate table. However, if they were to change the drop rates, the obtainment rate for every single item would change and the effects would be too drastic, so they came to the conclusion that they would not be adjusting the drop rates.

    Rubbish is as rubbish does.

    Guarantee's three things.

    1. Goodbye FFXI
    2. Never going to join FFXIV
    3. SE needs to stick to making 1 player offline games and NEVER make another MMO.

    Also this is just Absorb TP and Saboteur again, real translation.

    gear, kupo!"


    EDIT:
    When does BLU get the nerf hammer, that jobs been OP for so long now.

    Blu is the last job that needs a nerf. Try SAM and their best friend Tachi: Shoha.

    OP: Hey SE, when you give a kid a toy he/she likes and then you take it away, what happens? They cry and are obviously dissatisfied.

    Here's a solution: Think before you implement abilities you deem "unbalanced." Think about the short-term and the long-term, evalute it, and then correct it based on those ideas. Throwing well-received abilities in the game then taking them away causes backlash. That should be a given.

    I was being more realistic. SAM is SE's fave that'll never be gimped with you know who back in charge.

    Oh hush, BLU has only properly come in to its own very recently. It's by no means overpowered and certainly hasn't been for "so long".

    This is pretty much guaranteed to change nothing unless SE goes out of their way to make BST TH gear ridiculously difficult to obtain, and even I'm not inclined to think them so malevolent. Perle BSTs gotta rock dat Perle though.

    Of course, and by Pet: it will be SMN PUP BST DRG most likely.

    That or they'd do it their weird way of including jobs that don't even get pets like RDM.

    Because weakening treasure hunter for two pets out of the many available pets BST can use totally ruins the job and makes it more unplayable now than it was before.

    /sarcasm.
