Next, Technomancer! Technomancer has received a number of adjustements aimed at defining its identity as a "mana berserker" while also discouraging losing MP by use of minimum WIS sets/swapping.

  • Drive Boost will now disable for 1 turn for every Level/10 WIS deviation beyond the allowed threshold (Level/5 WIS), rather than a fixed 3 turns.
    • The WIS deviation threshold for triggering Recalibration has been fixed to be Level/5 WIS, rather than Level/10 WIS. (18 WIS at 90, up from 9 WIS at 90)
    • If the player's WIS deviates by more than the Recalibration threshold, they will be given Recalibration for a number turns equal to each additional Level/10 WIS threshold crossed.
      • For example, at level 90, you will be able to increase or decrease WIS by 18 without triggering Recalibration.
      • However, a deviation of 19-27 WIS will trigger Recalibration for 2 turns, 28-36 WIS will trigger Recalibration for 3 turns, etc.
    • Triggering additional Recalibration effects while Recalibration is already active will add additional turns to the remaining Recalibration duration.
