    Possible Haste II, can we get some Qualitative Enhancing Buffs?

    http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxi/threads/28391-Buff-Other-Support-jobs?p=376102#post376102

    We might get Haste II. Maybe not. Looks like the Dev team might be trying to add to the spell lists, which means we might get new spells.

    I'm happy enough for now. I personally would like my 500+ Enhancing magic to go towards more potent buffs. Obviously, I'd like Haste II to be in some way based on Enhancing Skill. Makes it more fun for people that like to gear their mages well.

    Apoc with both Catastrophe and Entropy gives you crazy sustain of both HP and MP. With the Haste aftermath you can wear a ton of -PDT and solo almost any 75 content.
    Doing damage is for WAR's, DRK is about soloing 75 content yo.....

    Good idea, BAD casting times. Don't think you quite know how long 30s is (the recast is trivial to reduce).

    Honestly every spell in this game needs it's casting time halved, people are not paying money to stare at their character while watching a bar slowly crawl across the screen.

    Not bad ideas, though I agree that those casting times are too long. I feel like there should be a stronger focus on enfeebles. perhaps a spell that lowers magic resist?

    The point in the long cast times is so that it is not seen as over powered because RDM would be able to swap its focus to easily. Besides, taking into account a Fast Cast set, you can take that 30 seconds down to a small 6 seconds with correct gear. Only basic gear (AF Hat, Relic+2 Body) is needed to cut it in half. I wouldn't be opposed to it being shorter, but I think it seems somewhat fair given RDM's already very fast casting & the fact these spells would allow you to massively boost either your melee or your magic, this simply prevents swapping on the fly like a SCH does with Light/Dark Arts.

    Edit:Also the recast wouldn't matter much to be reduced either, unless you mean just for swapping between them, in which case thats all the more reason for the cast time to be so high. The 3 minute duration is easily enhanced via Composure & gear to put it at roughly 12~13 minutes or so.

    More likely to get these as a JA working similar to how Innin and Yonin work, sharing recast timer, but having a longer duration than recast, but slowly decaying.

    Long casting times make the spells effectively useless. Their effect isn't high enough to justify it.
