The official page for the next series of updates is up here. This post is just gonna share information on the class cap bonuses and anything else I deem interesting.
For the unaware, getting a class to lv75 will make all characters on your account eligable for these bonuses. You won’t have to cap every class on all of your characters.
The bonuses are as follows:
- Hunter – +50 HP, +15 R-atk, +40 S-def
- Ranger – +20 R-atk, +15 T-atk, +40 R-def
- Force – +15 R-atk, +20 T-atk, +40 T-def
- Fighter – +2 PP, +50 S-atk, +15 T-atk, +10 T-def
- Gunner – +2 PP, +15 S-atk, +50 R-atk, +10 S-def
- Techer – +2 PP, +15 S-atk, +50 T-atk, +10 R-def
- Braver – +2 PP, +20 S-atk, +20 R-atk, +30 Dex
- Bouncer – +2 PP, +20 S-atk, +20 T-atk, +30 Dex
Totals for all classes capped on at least one character:
+50 HP, +10PP, +120 S-atk, +120 R-atk, +120 T-atk, +60 Dex, +50 S-def, +50 R-def, +50 T-def
Roughly the stats you might get from a selection of good all-round affixes on units. It’s not a bad boost overall. In order to claim your stat boost, you will need to collect it from the title counter upon reaching level 75. This rules out the danger of these bonuses stacking (as in getting multiple characters to say, lv75 Braver to stack the bonuses).
Challenge Quest: Mission: DECISION
The next challenge quest is set to arrive on the 26th of August and will feature Tundra, Tunnels and Skyscape areas, this was already known so there’s no need to go into detail here. What’s more interesting to me is how they’ve decided to handle a poential flaw in having multiple Challenge Quests.
Challenge Quests are best run by organised groups, but most people don’t have this option. Most of us are gonna have to run with randoms, and randoms will typically refuse to even attempt the quest if there are less than 12 people there. So having multiple Challenge Quests would be an issue, as it’d split the player-base and in theory make it more difficult to start the run you’d like to do. This is just my theory-crafting of course, there are other reasons this could be problematic; such as one quest being easier than the other causing the more difficult one to become a ghost town as everyone takes the path of least resistance.
Anyway their solution is to seemingly alternate a boost between the two quests on a weekly basis. The boosted quest will pay out more Miles, giving incentive to people to run it. Is this a good solution? It’ll probably prevent the player-base being split up at least.
Mission: Decision will be boosted between 26th Aug to 1st Sep.
Mission: Start will be boosted between 2nd Sep to 8th Sep.
These could of course be one offs or just done every so often.
Mission: Decision is incidentally not necessarily the name the patch team will go with. If they choose a different name I’ll edit this post to reflect it.
