Square Enix is currently testing a new enhancement system known as “Job Points,” which are expected to be implemented in either the upcoming mid-March or April Final Fantasy XI version update.
The system will seemingly serve as a new version of the merits system for level 99 players, in which it will augment certain skills and abilities. The only major difference being that players can only accrue “capacity points” needed for job points on the job they are currently on.
“Destroy monsters, gain EXP, earn job points. It’s that simple.”
