    New 2-hour Abilities

    Anyone down for some new 2-hour information on this fine Tuesday?

    We introduced two of them during VanaFest, but we just got a hold of the full list!

    Currently, we are making adjustments to the effects and running tests on all of these new abilities, and we are planning to implement them in the upcoming test server update. However, as the Development Team is still working on getting all the kinks out, some will not be available right away. They will be doing their best to get as many new 2-hour abilities onto the test server as possible in the next update.

    *The name and help text messages for each ability will be tentative when implemented to the test server. Also the effects and their values may be adjusted.

    JobEffects
    WARRegular attacks will become non-elemental and grants a drastic increase in accuracy.
    MNKGrants a 100% counter-rate against regular attacks from enemies. Also, the amount of enmity gained by this will increase drastically.

    Are the Devs going to fix BLU's broken spells to coincide with this amazing new 2hr?

    Some of these are truly awful. Take them back to the drawing board and try again.

    Just to clarify again, is the plan still to have these share the same timer 2 hour timer as the current abilities? Because that would be the determinate between these being useful-ish or almost completely useless.

    Dancer's looks better than Trance. It's not going to be super useful, but it's something.

    Climactic -> Evisceration -> NFR -> Reverse -> Rudra's -> New 2-hour -> Reverse -> Rudra's

    Yes!

    WAR
    Sounds good to me. Anyone who can't see the uses is plumb stupid.

    MNK
    a Defensive 2hour As opposed to their current, Offensive one. I l,ike it.

    WHM
    mmm, Sounds like a Watered down Perfect Defense... Maybe drawing board on this one.

    BLM
    Not super-de-dooper, But not bad. Enmity would need to be nearly non-existant.

    RDM
    IDK, This kinda feels like sh*t - I can't decide WTF SE Wants with RDM. Temper being single target/self only, then still shoving Enhancing magic buffs down their throat? Either make them a good enhancer or not... Almost every spell RDM gets enhancing wise, WHM gets in AoE Form.

    THF
    I hope "Massive Damage" Isn't the same as Coruscanti. Being said, I like how this sounds. I guess it didn't translate well, But I'm guessing "I kick ass while the guy tanking keeps hate".

    --- I have to go to work so i can't go through the rest, But honestly, I Kinda like how most of it sounds, and I think these are pretty decent!

    Thank you for the update CAMS

    DRG 2hr is meh. The problem with the Wyvern isnt keeping it alive anymore, its keeping US alive. When we die, the wyvern dies too which is inevitable eventually on any hard fight. The stat bonus to the wyvern had better be gigantic because on difficult fights like Legion or the new Odin fight, my Wyvern hits NMs for like 10-30 damage and breaths do like 80-100ish. Even if it was Deep Breathing potency for 2min, it wouldn't help much except on low level, weak content like Dynamis or level 75 content.
