Job Adjustments and Additions Part II (07/09/2009)
As a follow up to last week's article on new ninja job abilities, it is with pleasure that we introduce other job-related additions and adjustments scheduled for the fast-approaching July version update.

Rate of Gain for Combat and Magic Skills
The introduction of in-game systems such as Level Sync and Fields of Valor, while expediting job level increases in the low and middle level ranges, has caused gains made in combat and magic skills to lag behind.

To address this issue, the rate at which combat and magic skills increase during low and middle job levels is set to be given a boost.

Circle-type Abilities
Up until now, the benefits granted by Circle-type abilities have been lackluster relative to their ability delay. The July version update will see these abilities imbued with additional effects for greatly enhanced usability.

The following abilities will benefit from the above adjustment:
Holy Circle / Arcane Circle / Warding Circle / Ancient Circle / Killer Instinct

Blue Magic
Two new blue magic spells are scheduled to be added in the coming version update.

I loved the idea of the circle abilities, but hated the fact that they never seemed to be of ANY help. The effect doesn't proc nearly enough for the short period it's in effect, and the delay is too long given that. I've maybe seen it proc on someone else twice when I used it, and I tended to at least try since it didn't cost anything to do so.

The SAM's circle has worked pretty well for me.

I was kinda hoping for more Sad Hopefully the two BLU spells will be at least good ones. I doubt I'll use the circle abilities anymore than I have in the past. And combat/magic skillups doesnt affect me much, I try to keep those up in XP parties anyways.

Of course, I didn't face many dragons to really need mine.

Yeah, you tend to run into a lot more Demons than Dragons in the game. Especially with Imps being in that family.
