Magic Armour has been updated to boost WDEF by a % of MDEF, so it's much better now (though not so much for 1st Job). And bringing us back to the MP gain issue, MP Increase boosts MP by 120 x character level when maxed. I would assume that means that existing mages will still have more MP because they have this bonus in addition to however much they had before the update.
Remains similar for the most part, but everyone gets Magic Booster so it should be much faster. And all attack spells now hit 6 targets so...
Looks to be the same for everyone, except I/Ls which have the added benefit of getting Glacial Chain in 3rd Job post-RED. With high enough damage though, F/Ps can have Viral Slime solo a platform while they kill other mobs.
F/Ps have never been that good at training, and they still aren't post-RED. I/Ls are unchanged because they'll still be spamming CL, but if anyone was relying on Glacial Chain's damage before it's too bad because it's now a 3rd Job skill. Bishops got much better; they no longer have to rely on SR for AoE mobbing because they can spam Big Bang while Genesis is cooling.
