As is generally known, Servitors will get in Freya the buffs their master has. While discussing a question raised by Smittie and BeckyBuilder it has turned out that this goes also for skills that trigger when the master him- or herself is engaged in a fight. When Warrior Ability - Haste triggers on the Phoenix Knight, the Phoenix Servitor also gets an increased Atk.Speed.
Especially Summoners who hit themselves and/or regularly get hit (Maestros, Hell Knights, Phoenix Knights, maybe also Arcana Lords) should take this into consideration when choosing their subclass skills.
Aweary is reporting from Russia that the price for Knight's Epaulettes has gone down almost by half, from 13,000 adena to 7,000 adena, since their servers updated to Freya. So, if you don't need them urgently, you might want to wait with buying Knight's Epaulettes.
The reason for this drop in price is a change in the quests "Awl under Foot" and "Light within the Darkness", where the Bosses now have also Knight's Epaulettes as regular drops, which effectively doubles the harvest.
