    I actually really f**king love the idea of this.

    Can make it a powerful Self Effect: I.E-

    Regen Effect: +5 HP/tic
    Refresh: +2MP/tic (1) - +4 MP/tic(2)
    Spikes: Spikes Damage +25% - Spikes Effect Rate +10%
    Enspell: Enspell Damage +25% - Enspell Accuracy +25%

    And, RDM Empyrean +2 Set could grant these Buffs to others at a smaller rate, based on how many pieces... Like say... With Refresh.

    2 Pieces - +1 MP/tic
    3 Pieces - +2MP/tic
    4/5 Pieces - +3MP/tic.

    This way, Its a Pretty decent self buff, and RDM Empyrean augments it to be a pretty nice Party/Member helping buff too. Since RDM+2 already passes on some effect onto (73%~ Duration bonus?) onto others, It would be the same with this adjustment!

    These are spitballed ideas, But i really like what you suggested. - All of my Likes.

    EDIT: Apologies for the necro bump but I felt the need to provide some feedback regarding this topic.

    That's fine. I'll be patiently waiting for this.

    Development Team, please reconsider this. Red Mage really needs to be more versatile with it's enfeebling spell selection. As masters of enfeebling magic it would make a lot of sense to add this spell to RDM's arsenal. I can see parties and alliances wanting RDM not only for Dia III, Slow II, Paralyze II but also for Plague! The Plague spell itself would kindle RDM's disintegrated flame.

    About DoT-related magic being Scholar's forte, --Well, Virus is an enfeebling effect so it falls under Red Mage's forte of inducing status ailments along with Dia, Bio and Poison. Plague has Red Mage written all over it.

    As mentioned previously, the Development Team is looking into adding new spells that will be quite different from the current list available.
    Okipuit, I must ask, are higher tiers of Dia, Bio and Poison not part of Red Mage's growth timeline? Or did the development team decide to place a cap on those spells even after Seeker's of Adoulin is released?

    Also, it has been six months since you wrote this response I'm replying to. May you shed some light on these new spells that are going to be added?

    Diaga II, Biora, Biora II, Silence II, Bind II, Dispel II (capable of dispelling 2 effects) Plague, Amnesia <-- RDM needs enfeebles that are wholly exclusive to them

    Poisonga, Paralyga, Blindga, Silencega, Slowga etc. would be great aswell, or even just an ability similar to Manifestation that makes the next enfeebling spell cast AoE in exchange for lower magic accuracy.

    New ability - Immunobreak - the next enfeebling spell you cast will fully immunobreak the enemy's resistance to that spell.

    Pssh, there's a zillion suggestions for new spells in this forum. Dunno if they ever even get looked at.

    A packaged ATK/DEF down combo spell that doesn't DoT the target.

    Ditto Slow + Paralyze + Silence, Blind + Gravity + Dispel. And a nastier version towards L99 that packs the L75 meritables into a single dose of pure nasty. RDM's are supposed to be the easiest to use and most powerful of doing in Enfeebling spells.

    Time matters to an RDM more than anyone else, simply because originally, Red Mages were designed to DO lots of things, even if not as well as one specialist does. If we can lob multiple enfeeblements in a single casting, that's a step in the right direction- especially since this also means we can JA-buff multiple status effects in a single dose as well.

    Rather than give RDM upgraded versions of existing spells, I think it should be made to stand on its own with a few unique things.

    REFLECT

    It could either be extremely useless or extremely broken. Maybe both! Reflect is self target only, and bounces all spells back at the caster. All spells cast on ones self fail while reflect is up, so you cannot be cured or buffed while it's enabled. Also, unlike most "buffs", it cannot be cancelled, so once you cast it, you commit to it, and it stays on until it wears off or you die.

    MINI

    This debuff reduces attack and defense, and shrinks the mob's character model.

    TOAD

    Well... does exactly what it says it does. It turns the target mob into a toad. Toad has similar properties to death, in that it has a low chance of succeeding, and bosses and NMs are immune to it.

    STOP
    Similar to Break, it totally stops the enemy, but they cannot take any damage while it is in effect.

    DEATH
    High MP cost, high recast, very low success rate.

    FOG
    Inflicts amnesia.

    Not to be that guy, but this is way past beating a dead horse.
    This is more like a hole in the ground where the horse use to be with a pile of broken bat's lying all around it. And where the ground is so pulverizer that even the rock's have been pounded into a fine dust. This is a hole where dreams die and SE comes by to pick up idea's for other job's. It's a sad place with a tombstone on it with every player's name on it that ever contributed to the ideal of making RDM a Master of his own job. And to grow like every other job in the game.

    I was thinking of that lately. BLM got his ultimate spell "Meteor", WHM got "Arise". I think RDM should have this ultimate spell and was thinking of "Stop" since RDM is near a Time Mage in FFXI. Not sure of the real effect though.

    Enspells against Adoulin Mobs that take extra magic damage is pretty nifty and Gravity II can be landed if you have a decent to good enfeeble set. RDM was considered when they were planning for Adoulin. They also include not 1 but 2 swords of proper standing in case we want to dual wield, which we do. I'm sad to see my Excalibur go, but I'm happy with the environment I was allowed to give it up in. It is very RDM friendly.

    Elemental magic being upgraded soon would be another plus.
