Chocobo Raising Items
All the items listed here are likely used in the upcoming Chocobo Raising addition to FFXI. There are many types of chocobo feeding items, the chocobo eggs, and other related items.

Note that there are five different items called Chocobo Egg, that have similar descriptions except for 1-2 words describing how warm the egg is. Presumably these eggs will provide different types of chocobos, once the Chocobo Raising goes into the game. Some of these eggs are dropped in the new ISNMs; if you have info on those drops, please post in the ISNM Info discussion topic with specifics about which eggs drop in what fights.

Merit Point Additions
As detailed in the patch notes, the merit point system was expanded dramatically with this patch. The basic info is listed here, for all the new abilities, spells and job traits available via merits, for the 15 pre-ToAU jobs.

Note that all of these job traits/job abilities/spells are only available at level 75, when the character has allocated merit points in that job, to unlock them. These group 2 merit abilities cost 3 merit points to unlock, and then can be extended 2 more times (at a cost of 4 and then 5 merit points). Since these new group 2 merits can be raised a total of 6 times in total, that means that 2 of the new abilities can be capped in a specific job.

Warrior's Charge Ability Target: Self

Will double your next attack.

Extra Merits: Shorten recast time by 2 minutes 30 seconds.
-- -- 15 min.
Extra Warrior's Charge Info: This Job Ability does work with weaponskills; it can be used immediately before the WS to generate a double attack in the WS.
Tomahawk Ability Target: Enemy

Expends a throwing tomahawk to inflict a special defense down effect on an enemy.

Extra Merits: Increase duration of effect by 15 seconds.
-- -- 3 min.
Extra Tomahawk Info: This Job Ability uses a Throwing Tomahawk item; they must be equipped, and one is used up each time the JA is used. The effect lasts for 30 seconds by default, and can be raised to 1 minute duration with full merits. The "special defense down" effect by this JA seems to reduce (or possibly negate) the resistance that some mobs have to certain types of physical damage; with the effect on, an Elemental type of mob will not be as resistant to all physical damage, Skeletons will not be as resistant to Piercing weapons, etc.
Savagery Job Trait Adds TP bonus effect to Warcry.

Extra Merits: Increase weapon skill TP bonus by 10.
-- -- --
Extra Savagery Info: This Job Trait's description is somewhat confusing; it makes a weaponskill done when Warcry is active as powerful as if the character had 10 more TP. So if a WS is done with 150% TP, it will be as powerful as if it had 160% TP. If capped with merits, this is a +30 TP bonus. Note that this bonus extends to everyone affected by the party buff Warcry.
Aggressive Aim Job Trait Adds ranged accuracy bonus to Aggressor. -- -- --

Imperial Standing Notorious Monsters (ISNM)

A new type of battlefield fight was added with this patch, that provides for fights similar to BCNMs. These are activated by spending Imperial Standing credits (IS); so far they cost either 2000 or 3000 IS. The NPC Shajaf in Aht Urghan Whitegate gives the necessary keyitems, in exchange for Imperial Standing credits.

Every character who enters the ISNM must have the appropriate keyitem. These fights are found in the new battlefield areas, part of the ToAU zones. There are three battlefield zones used, with two fights in each battlefield, one with a level 60 cap and one uncapped. The ISNM fights are listed below.
