With the news of the level cap being raised to 99 it got me wondering about what crazy, as things are now, stuff we'll see being done in a few months from now because it's no longer difficult. There's things that I can't see being changed like the caps on Accuracy, Haste, Physical/Magic Damage Reduction, Magic Resist rates, etc.
Then there's others where changes are probably going to have to be made. People have pretty well figured out how Enmity and the "hate cap" works and been exploiting it to their advantage for several years now. I can't picture that scaling all the way to level 99. Higher HP, more powerful elemental spells, new JAs (maybe PLDs or WARs finally get Enrage?)...it's just not going to work.
So what will we be seeing in a few months from now? Most currently formidable things to a single adventurer like sky gods will probably be soloable, given an hour or two, by PLD/RDMs. Maybe NIN/RDM, THF/NIN, MNK/DNC, SAM/DNC, etc, too depending. Will the local has everything Aegis+Excalibur PLDs be in city Dynamis soloing to fund further relics? It's funny to imagine, but I think it's quite possible.
I, for one, am quite eager for the first time in a long while to see what happens. I guess we'll probably have to wait a month to get any more details out of Square-Enix though. /sigh
On a side note: I think I should probably level my Red Mage and White Mage subs to 49. Anyone want to form a 5xRDM+BRD Enspell burn party? I think the idea is fucking hilarious and I really don't want to solo Fields of Valor to 49 on a bunch of jobs. Then again, if I do pre-level subs to 49 I bet SE will come out and say "any level 37 sub will stay auto-capped for players above level 75" or something so it was a waste. LOL.
