I recognize that this doesn't really merit its own topic, but I felt obligated to do it purely for the title. Anyway, it looks like SE didn't only change Spectral Jig duration. They also changed the way that duration enhancement works for our Jigs.
Code
No Gear: (North Gustaberg)
3:19 - Used
5:50 - First warning (10 and 20 seconds after for more warnings)
6:19 - Wears Off - 9 seconds after last warning
180 seconds duration

Etoile +2 pants: (North Gustaberg)
51:15 - Used
54:50 - First warning (10 seconds and 20 seconds after for more warnings)
55:17 - Wears off - 7 seconds after last warning
242 second duration (+89/256 Duration)

Maxixi +1 feet: (Palsborough)
24:57 - Used
28:48 - First warning (10 seconds and 20 seconds after for more warnings)
29:09 - Wears off - 1 second after last warning)
252 second duration (+40% Duration)

Etoile +2 pants and Maxixi +1 feet: (Palsborough)
16:26 - Used
20:28 - First Warning (10 and 20 seconds after for more warnings)
20:56 - Wears off - 8 seconds after last warning
270 second duration (+50% Duration)

Etoile +2 pants and Maxixi +1 feet: (Palsborough)
30:25 - Used
34:28 - First Warning (10 and 20 seconds after for more warnings)
34:55 - Wears off - 8 seconds after last warning
270 second duration (+50% Duration)


They increased the duration of Spectral Jig to always be 3 minutes, so the No Gear test works out exactly between when it was used and when it wears off. You'll notice two things if you scan down the list though:
1) There appears to be a +50% duration cap
2) The time between when you get your last warning and when it actually wears off is (as any mage could tell you) random. This is because SE seems to be sending "it's going to wear off soon" warnings on tocks. They're always 10 seconds apart and appear to be consistent within a zone. So any time you've gotten an "instant" wears off message -> wears off, you have SE to thank. They're too lazy to send packets when the warnings should occur and just push it into their outgoing tock packets, so you get either between 0 and 9 seconds after the last message or between 1 and 10 seconds.


And then I checked Chocobo Jig II:
Code
Etoile +2 legs: 43:25 to 46:06 (2 minutes and 41 seconds) +89/256
Maxixi +1 feet: 53:55 to 56:43 (2 minutes and 48 seconds) +40%
Full Gear: 39:38 to 42:38 (3 minutes)
No Gear: 49:27 to 51:27 (2 minutes, as expected)


So yeah, there's a +50% duration cap now and we almost cap with one piece of gear (but not quite). Thanks SE. Now do I carry around AF2+2 legs or not?

Just to corroborate your claim with a different variable:

Chocobo Jig II
Code
Etoile +2 legs + Dancer's shoes: 19:08 to 22:08 (3 minutes)


Spectral Jig
Code
Etoile +2 legs + Dancer's shoes: 
27:41 Used
31:50 First warning
32:12 Wears off 
4 minutes 31 seconds duration (can safely round to 4:30)


Conclusion: Lame.
