11/3/2011 - Red Mage: Nerf the amount of Convert uses to equal 3 + Cha Mod and removed the improved versions of Convert. 5:1 is fine as it is. Dark/Holy Knights are no longer subsidiaries of the Knight class. They are now their own Base Class and to reflect such, each got a minor change. Monk's martial arts ability is now based on monk level and not at specific monk level (I know that doesn't make sense, just read it.) Now Monk PrCs gain the benefits of increased unarmed strike damage and critical hit threat range. Monk's Capstone ability changed for the better, gaining a +2 strength/dexterity/wisdom. Engineer's Automaton changed to reflect the changes in Animal Companions.

2/20/2012 - Minor change to Mastercrafted weapons. The bonus to weapons also ignores damage reduction.

2/22/2012 - Major changes to Bard and Summoner base classes. As well as slight changes to bard prestige classes (Dancer, Mediator, and Skald).

9/30/2012 - Major update: Bard got an overhaul as well as bard songs. Knight got a minor overhaul. Working on Black/White Mage next as well as spells. Finished with a minor overhaul on Black and White mage classes. Will have spells eventually done over the week.

Hey there,

The changes to the Holy/Dark Knight are not showing yet in the class descriptions. Also, the Divine/Fell PRCs are still showing.

Any ETA on when they will be updated?

Thanks!

Awesome!! Going to check 'em out! Smile

Ok, this is pretty good and closer to FF:Tactics holy knight.

However, Holy Techs at every 5 levels is IMO too far apart. You need to be at least level 5 before having the first one.

Why not remove stuff like White Mage casting, Blessing, Lay on hands and smite evil? In place of these, focus on Holy Sword Techs, granting them earlier (level 1 in fact if possible) and sooner couple of levels, making them multi target and do more damage? (again, this is not for want of powergaming or anything, just to make the class like Agrias Oaks and Delita)

The abilities removed can be collapsed into a new class, the Paladin which would be the class people who want to play Cecil type characters can play?

Another thing, the Holy Sword Techs were of varying power levels and thus had a variable difference in Job points to purchase them in Tactics. Would it be possible to represent that in this class, say maybe give more powerful techs a level requirement so they can't be purchased at lower level?

I've just looked at Hk, will look at DK tomorrow morning! (really late here, going to bed!)

Thanks again for an amazing conversion and regular updates and responsiveness! Big Grin

I can understand where your coming from Alpha as there's definitely some classes I'd like to see closer to a specific version of them from the franchise but the Holy Knight isn't supposed to just be the one from Tactics, or the Paladin from the other games. It's meant to represent a type of character from the Final Fantasy franchise as a whole. If you look you'll see that most of the FFd20 classes don't just use abilities from one version of them from the series but are amalgams of different versions of them. The Holy Knight and Dark Knight are no different. Now of course this is how I tend to look at these classes since this is supposed to be a universal FFd20 and not a direct conversion of a specific game.

There's definitely going to be more changes. Summoner and Chocobo Knight at the least. Just not sure when I'll get them finished.
