    I assumed it didn't, as below it in bullet point 2 (on the balance change thread), they gave the same TMAs to funding, yet showed how TMA from potions now have a greater effect on their damage relative to funding bracket. If this is the case, you can't add pots/echo to an already potted/echoed TMA..

    I had heard differently from someone else when I inquired, so was going off that. Good to get a confirmation at least, game is no longer calling me povo tier if I extrapolate out my TMA to 200

    I have a theory, correct me if I'm wrong please.
    For most players who earned billions of mesos from mages, considering they earned meso in a quite efficient way, they probably prefer to spent meso on classes that benefit from same invested gears more (spent mose efficiently).
    In addition, the main reason mesos generated from mages were not spenting on themselves because they can not deal decent single target dmg compare to other attackers with same valuing gears, which makes them not good choices for bossing.

    If answer your question without the context. No, mages who earned a lot mesos should not be considered poor at all.
    But with the context, I think rich = well funded mages, poor = naked undergeared mages, hence yes mages though may earned great fortune are still poor. Mages are sweaty players' mules for their main, and there are rare players planning end game main on mages before this patch. It's sad isn't it?

    if we are class agnostic and only care about damage output, wa/cost (account for gear only) and dpm/cost (additionally accounts for class) is what matters for what people eventually spend on. mages just happen to be the best farmers

    So wouldn't a more true statement be that this patch was a buff to well geared mages and a nerf to poorly geared mages?
    Why deal with the nuance when you can have a more correct statement?
