Final Fantasy XI is bringing new Puppetmaster upgrades with its March patch

I am COMPELLED to SHOOT!

There are classically two schools of thought regarding Puppetmaster in Final Fantasy XI. One school of thought is that the job is not actually very good at anything, incapable of holding a spot in a party, and thus wholly unsuited to basically any task. The second school of thought is the same, but with the added rider that you get to have an automaton following you around, so who cares if it’s bad? It’s cool. Fortunately for fans in the second camp, the upcoming March version update is bringing in new improvements specifically for Puppetmaster.

Fans of the job will have access to new attachments to slap on their automatons, as well as adjustments to the existing attachments (presumably to make them more potent). This coincides with a new set of challenges of Ambuscade, along with new items and new crafting recipes. You know, recipes that could be creating new attachments for your Puppetmaster. Everything links together.

Puppetmaster can Tank Anything in the game, it is FAR from useless and tanks everything in our Vagary & Omen runs.

Well while you may be right, you should consider they definitely cant play ALL games out there but they are trying to provide us with news on everything – there are just too many games out there. I found major mistakes at times on other articles but I think its better to point them out on comments or on tips rather than be offensive/aggressive and/or annoyed about them

It’s likely he’s just remembering Puppetmaster when it launched.

I could be wrong but I seem to remember it being pretty bad when it first came out.

It’s funny because it makes me remember how much incorrect “tribal knowledge” there was in FFXI, especially in the early days. Viable Jobs could be left in the dust based off a rumor that managed to take hold in the community. “My friend’s cousin saw someone say in chat that they heard from their Linkshell that X Job is bad. Pass it on!”

It’s the only other P2P (aside from WOW) that has managed to retain the monthly fee without the need to go f2p.
