The maximum number of merit points a player may use in each adjustable status category will be increased in the next version update! The maximum number of usable merit points will increase in all categories in the following manner. Combo total and sub-categories: HP/MP Attributes Combat skills Magic skills Others Combo total only: Individual job categories
With this adjustment, players may reach their maximum potential possible with the Chains of Promathia expansion disc.
Furthermore, the FINAL FANTASY XI development team is already working to expand the merit point system for "Treasures of Aht Urhgan." Adjustments to make new magic spells and abilities available through the use of merit points are planned for the new expansion disc.
More information will be released on the FINAL FANTASY XI main page as it is made available.
