Final Fantasy XI offers discounts and majorly redesigns Monk

Get some.

Players of the most punch-drunk class in Final Fantasy XI will be learning to play a wildly different job with the game’s August version update. Boost, for example, now has a 60-second cooldown and automatically affects your next autoattack or weaponskill. Chakra restores more health and has a three-minute cooldown instead of five minutes. Dodge and Focus have both had their recasts decreased significantly and their bonuses improved. It’s going to be a pretty significant set of changes for players to deal with, even without new Superior 2 equipment and the incoming Ambuscade changes.

But perhaps none of this means anything to you, as you’ve never actually played the game. Good news, then; the game is offering people a discount to get into the full game through most of August. From August 9th through August 31st, you can pick up the full collection for just $10, allowing you to see everything on offer in Vana’diel at a third of the usual price. That’s a pretty nice discount. Server transfers are also discounted, so players can jump servers to play together if they so desire.

They should cut the sub rate by half. I, and I bet a few 100K more, would play it for a while if they did.

fuck and yes: I can’t actually commit to this game enough to justify the full monthly price (not when I will be inactive most days out of the month) but I would would sub in the blink of an eye if it was just $5 or something.

Or bundle it with the FFXIV. One sub to cover both should get people to try the other game out.

A much younger me would have been salivating over my keyboard on seeing those notes about the monk changes. So its probably a good thing I am older and in control of my drooling issues or typing this would have been really messy.

As an old main monk player I would be interested to see what I could do with those but the FFXI ship sailed away for me a long time ago.
