    Change to tp loss during shield swapping

    Is there any way the devs could look into changing shield swapping so that you don't lose tp when shield swapping? Shields should be treated much the same manner that instruments are treated.

    Also if they decide to implement this change can they make it so that shield swapping doesn't wipe aftermath?

    Nope, because old TP sets I made and used for BRD on my friend's character used the Haste +2% Harp for TPing and had no issues swapping between them to sing for the party while retaining their TP.

    Heh my BRD melee TP macro actually has the Angel's Lyre macro'd in, but I never found one on AH to buy it lol.

    But yeah, I swap through all sorts of instruments when soloing and it most certainly does NOT drop your TP

    It'd only lose you TP by changing instruments if you changed to something that isn't an instrument. (A ranged weapon because it has a different delay, or ammo because it's in a different slot.) Honestly changing your shield shouldn't lose you any TP unless you change it to a second sword, because your shield doesn't affect your delay or TP/swing.

    This isn't the case, at least for Geo. Can freely swap between bells and ammo items, but changing from either of those to a throwing weapon such as Aureole will make you lose TP.

    I believe that this is the case for BRD too. Almost certain that equipping a non-throwable ammo item won't lose your TP.

    PLD being able to swap shield would be totally broken, it doesn't happen atm because constantly losing TP would be a major hit to enmity generation, if you didn't lose TP anymore then an Ochain + Aegis PLD would be way too difficult to kill, sounds pretty stupid to me.
