hinted at many exciting job abilities, but unfortunately, the language we were given was very vague
. That alone was enough to get players excited, but more details are welcomed, and the development team has happily obliged

Several of the new abilities granted boosts to existing abilities in previous unused aspects -- red mages can enhance their debuffing skills for a short time, while blue mages can gain extra TP when using physical magic.
