    PvP changes in Patch 4.41

    Hello everyone!

    We hope you’ve been enjoying Patch 4.4 so far, I know I have! I’m here to talk to you today about some of the recent changes implemented in 4.4 and what’s on the horizon in Patch 4.41. This is a recap of what was discussed in today's Adrenaline Rush TV, the Japanese community team's PvP show!

    The dev. team is interested in speeding up the overall tempo of the Feast, thus changes coming forward in Patch 4.4 focus on encouraging more kills to happen throughout a match.

    The FRC Semifinals shown a spotlight on the popularity on specific jobs, and the dev. team is interested in bringing more of a balance across the board as a result. You will see some more job adjustments in Patch 4.41 so please look forward to it!

    White Mage in particular has been under-utilized for a few seasons now. The dev. team added Tetragrammaton and removed Benediction in order to align White Mage with the current tempo of the game. They will be especially working on skills and abilities that benefit from the Lily system. Their goal with White Mage is to allow players to manage cooldowns efficiently, without feeling stress of their cooldown system.

    That being said, we are all excited to see the culmination of the FRC unfold across all three regions! We hope you tune in and cheer on all the teams that have fought hard to get to this point! We also encourage you all to continue providing feedback throughout the season and wish you the best of luck in season 10!

    Thanks for the update.

    Don't suppose there's any hope of news for Rival Wings?

    Thanks for the update as well. Is it possible to look into reducing the strength of some jobs in Frontlines? One GC in our server group makes parties of only bards, healers, and machinists. This combination is nigh on impossible to beat It really lowers the fun and morale when your opposition has an invincible team.

    Meta needs sorting badly. SMN has the potential to actually be in a reasonable spot without being a big pick, but the high mana costs of multi-dotting for the low amount of pressure and dot duration you get out of it means as it stands you will never have a reason to play one other than BRD. Yes it has good DRG pairing - but BRD has it even better. BRD can swap even without dots in an emergency - we can't even think about it as SMN. The issue is when the game's situation is currently get something to 100-0 after a 5 second cd or melee lb healer and snowball in mid culling, SMN is incredibly underwhelming. This is not withstanding the fact BRD can peel both melee and casters with blunt arrow and repelling shot.
