New Items

The items listed below were added into the data files, all of which are available immediately within FFXI. If you have extra info about these items that is not listed here, please let us know in the Feb 23. Patch: Item Info topic on the discussion board. Note that there are a number of new crafted items; the ones listed below that are marked "Crafted" have recipes in the database. Click on any of those items to see the crafting recipe for them.

Weapons

Along with various new crafted weapons, a set of new weapons were added that provide a TP Bonus. This bonus acts as +100 TP when the weapon is used for a weaponskill, increasing the power of the weaponskill. However, this will not make a weaponskill more powerful than it would be normally at 300 TP; a weaponskill used at or above 200 TP with these weapons equals 300 TP normally.

Shield Skill Revamp

The Shield skill was revamped with the Feb. 23 patch. The following points explain the new system.
  1. Instead of occasionally blocking a physical hit entirely, like Parry does, the Shield skill now blocks a percentage of the damage of the hit.
  2. All shields now have a size assigned to them. The rate at which the Shield skill activates, and the amount of damage blocked when the skill does activate, is largely based on the size of the shield. Larger shields tend to activate less than smaller shields; however, a larger shield blocks much more damage on a hit than a small shield does. For example, a size 1 shield (Buckler) blocks relatively often, but only reduces the damage taken by 30-40%. A size 3 shield (Kite) blocks less often, but reduces damage by 50-60% each time. Persumably the other shield sizes are on this same scale.
  3. Having a higher Shield skill improves the use of the skill. Also, the Shield skill raises somewhat faster now than in the old system; smaller shields tend to raise the skill faster, since they activate more often, and possibly just faster in general.
  4. So far there are four different sizes of shields, from smallest to largest: size 1, which is listed as 'Buckler' type on this site; size 2, listed as 'Round'; size 3, listed as 'Kite'; size 4, listed as 'Tower'.
The shield items in each of the four different shield sizes catagories are listed below:
