Dynamis and Limbus get a Makeover!

From Playonline.com

The September version update just keeps getting bigger and better! We would like to take this opportunity to announce our intentions to implement some all-new features to both Dynamis and Limbus, as well as a few adjustments brought in by popular demand!

The September version update just keeps getting bigger and better! We would like to take this opportunity to announce our intentions to implement some all-new features to both Dynamis and Limbus, as well as a few adjustments brought in by popular demand!


Blue mage / Corsair / Puppetmaster Artifacts and Relics

The wait is finally over! At long last, the highly anticipated relic gear sets of the blue mage, corsair, and puppetmaster jobs are here! Rounding out the standard 5-piece sets, the more recently added back and waist items will also be added to September's version update. Players with these jobs can now look forward to obtaining the ingredient items required to temper their artifact and relic gear with even greater enhancements! When considering how to best introduce this equipment, the development team weighed many options, including the possibility of entirely original methods. In the end, however, the decision was made that such means would be largely unfair by rendering only players with these jobs capable of accessing new game content. Therefore, all of the above items will be procured in the same way as their predecessors, namely via exploits in the Dynamis and Limbus areas.

 

Drop Rates

Great care has been put into assuring that current drop rates will see no negative impact from the introduction of the new blue mage, corsair, and puppetmaster gear sets. Players can rest easy knowing that any and all necessary adjustments to the drop rate ratios have been considered and implemented to maintain a fair and balanced game experience. Furthermore, the overall drop rates of select Dynamis areas, covering the relic gear of all jobs old and new, are set to be raised as well.

 

Entry Fees

In light of the additions and adjustments detailed above, the entry fees for both Dynamis and Limbus were also brought under careful reconsideration. Thanks in part to the ground being made by the Special Task Force in combating RMT-related activities, and subsequent normalization of the game economy, the following reduction in price to entry items will be implemented in the upcoming September version update.

Timeless Hourglass: 1,000,000 gil -> 500,000 gil

Cosmo-Cleanse: 30,000 gil -> 15,000 gil

Maybe I'll get around to taking my BLU to 75 after all, the set looks even better on my tv screen. Oh well, 32 more levels to go.

I think what they mean by "gather ingrediants to enhance" maybe they are talking about af+1 or relic+1?

In before "To obtain your Immortal Keffiyeh you must trade your Magus Keffiyeh, Immortal gold Ingot, 12 Gold Threads, 32 Imperial Wootz Ingots, and 5000 Lungo-Nungo Jadeshells to Switchstix in Castle Zvahl Baileys."

Obtaining ingredients is more of a hint to the +1 AF and AFv2.

This might actually give me a reason to join a Dynamis ls now. So far I've had no interest since the only thing there I wanted was relic weapon for DRK (the gear stinks -.-). Maybe the PUP relic set will actually have useful stats for the job! ^^

Just a guess here, but keeping the drop rate fair and the fact that they prolly won't be adding new NMs in xarc means they'll prolly make the xarc NMs drop any job AF.

I don't know.. they are putting in efforts to change dynamis, so why not add a few new NMs? Payback for all those lolpup moments :) Those new NMs would have to be included in a new set of spawns, and their deaths required for the Prison of Souls unlock. And ofcourse a 15 minute time extention to cover the additional effort. (I so want to see linkshells wiping on a dynamis PUP NM...;)

They could also go cheap on us, and just add the new relic armor as a 2nd drop to all NMS... (MNK NM would still be limited to MNK relic, but might drop PUP or any TOAU relic as well, with the chance of dropping both being equal to the droprate of any 2 pre-toau relic pieces from any 2 NMs)

Before someone says anything about cheating:

Exploit:

An act or deed, especially a brilliant or heroic one. A Feat.
