    ilvl movement speed for mages

    Would it be possible to add an ilvl piece of movement speed gear that mage jobs can use? Some jobs like geo, rdm, and bard have this available while other jobs like blm, whm, and sch don't get any ilvl movement speed gear at all. Would it be possible to add something for those jobs?

    I'd like at least 1 ilevel movement option for every job - not including the ring. Even 12% would be fine (to leave the ring desirable)

    There are no plans to add item level gear that increases movement speed.

    Just get the Shneddick Ring from SoA missions. It has 18% (some sources say it's only 16% though) on it and you wont have to sacrifice an armor slot for the movement increase like you would with an ilvl piece.


    PS > (Now if the Dev team would allow us to pick 2 SoA rings instead of one I wouldn't complain either. Make them cost 1 million Bayld if you want. )

    All the 18% Movement gear is 16% and all the 8% is 6%. Only thing that seems to be right is 12% gear.

    I thought this had to do with the fact that all movement speed was increased from 100% to 125% a few updates ago? Also, Grekumah, you're breaking my heart here (but thanks for asking for us)!

    Item level movement speed for mages would be broken. We can already solo certain Delve bosses, Vagary bosses, higher-tier mission fights, and Escha NM's with just herald's and crier's. The amount of sustainability afforded by typical 119 M.EVA would be overpowered. The only balanced reason I could see SE implementing this for would be to discourage the use of movement-related hacking.

    The point of my original post is that there is already ilvl movement speed gear for some mages - nuking mages even. Most endgame content that I lowman for we don't worry about kiting - just facetank with regen5 up til dead. As is I don't bother with movement speed because gravity kiting in ilvl gear works well enough and I don't really have space in my macro sets for a movement speed specific gear set, however, it would certainly be nice if I could run at the same speed as the geomancer I play with without going out of ilvl gear.
