Cutting Cards (カットカード, Katto Kādo?, lit. Cut Card) is the Corsair SP2 ability learned at level 96 in Final Fantasy XI. It reduces the recast on party member's special job abilities by a percentage of their remaining time that depends on a die roll. The time cut can range from 5% if a one is rolled to 50% if a six is rolled. It can be recast every 1 hour.
Creation and development
Originally, the Corsair SP2 ability was intended to be Three For One (スリートゥワン, Surī tu Wan?, lit. Three to One), which would have allowed the player to stack three Phantom Rolls on members of their party instead of two (analogous to the Bard ability Clarion Call).
