PLD specific:

  • Cover duration modified by VIT.
  • Cover now raises enmity for PLD; lowers enmity for person being covered.
  • Shield Bash now grants a damage bonus based on type of shield used.
  • Divine Emblem grants a bonus to Holy & Banish damage based on divine magic skill.

*VIT affecting Cover duration sounds about right.No argument here, but there is a question of how Cover+ equipment will function alongside this.

*Enmity transfer to the PLD really makes this JA much more useful depending on how much is transferred.

*I'd be really curious as to how much of a damage bonus is given. If nothing else, maybe it'll close the gap between ours and Valoredge's version.

*I'd settle for higher Magic Accuracy, but this is good. At least Divine Emblem will serve a more tangible purpose.

I was working on changing my T1 vnm pop to a T2 and tried this a cpl of times on the mobs. Avg damage from holy was 156. Casting with Divine Emblem avg was 526.

Get bent.

Yes I have noticed that Divine Emblem caused my Holy to do 4x damage. I was doing an AE burn so had MAB atmas on w/ Gales and was able to get a 1.6k Holy.

The cover duration for me didn't seem THAT long but was definitely eyeballing. What I did notice was that after cover was over I had hate back without a flash.

Decent stuff.
