    Any class could in theory be considered support in some situation. When I'm on my bm, barbs and sins are support classes--they buff and debuff, but since I avoid doing things with high interval sins, I don't consider them really dd…
  • Yeah, I know. Was just trying to be amusing, given how many serious (and often admittedly inflammatory) posts I often make on here. Ehe.

    Technically those are Arabic Numerals. ?<.>?;
  • With the current state of the economy, the only thing that makes non-nv instances profitable at all is soloing. There's too much inflation and ability for gear to be gotten easily through csing to make the small profit margins of group instances pre…

    So, if I want to play a veno and don't want to melee things in fox form, I should just roll a mage too, right? Not every class is obliged to make full use of its potential abilities. How many bms are there who don't even max sword …

    Ah, fair enough. Sorry if I jumped to the defensive--I have something of a complex about being mocked, which made me jump to the conclusion that I was. That would be my mistake, and my apologies for the overly zealous defense that …

    No, ecatomb is just wrong. The actual book/skill description reads differently.

    Proofs.

    I'm perfectly willing to heal in emergencies, res buff the cleric, lay down plants for aoe pulls to assist bb or give the squad time to recover from its loss in GV, etc, but I will not be treated as a cleric substitute. There's a d…
  • He stated in the first post quite clearly not to suggest R8, so her violation of that came first. I admit I'm being rude in turn, but I see no reason not to respond in kind to that comment, particularly to a poster who has so blatantly been abusing …

    You could try not glitching the game to 105? Or maybe just not being rude. If you find the OP's politely stated restraints in a game that he's playing for fun so objectionable, it wouldn't be hard not to post. Personally if …

    Well, I wrote most things in the guide with PvE in mind, so I would suggest looking back at it and just ignoring places I specifically point out pvp utility. But the short answer is, lv Break in the Clouds, Nature's Vengeance…

    Yeah... It's annoying. I've purposefully downplayed the healing role in my guide for this reason--I don't want mystics themselves to feel this. I'm afraid than the generalized culture of it might be influencing the mystic's o…

    I'm entirely with you. I think people have the stupid idea that we can only heal because they can't seem to grasp that the class has no one set role or because they've given in to the attack speed culture and think of anythin…

    Well, I guess we just have different play styles. But yeah, I can't imagine I would wait, honestly, if there was a cleric in the squad... Though I suppose not everyone is familiar with cleric res of the same level saving more mp th…
  • For the record, my guide contains a detailed section on this subject, and though it's only a segment, it's comparable in length to this guide--actually, mine is more detailed, looking at it. Not trying to plug tooo shamelessly, but if this one is in…
  • Optimal squad range for exp is 10 lvs btween highest and lowest or less. Further, optimal range for exp from mobs is 10 lvs between mob lv and highest squad member level and mob level and lowest squad member level. Thus, a squad of {80, 88, 90, 94, …
  • A purely mechanical reason not to be an idiot and buy heads is because the spirit yield is pitifully low and you will not have any hope of keeping skills leveled, which is hard enough even with the normal 5/1 exp ratio. Don't believe me? Look…
  • Hah, glad to have been of help. Yeah, I know how annoying it can be to have people ignore what you say you expressly want and continue pushing the standard on you. I myself am using a sinrabansho on my veno despite having R8, and will be acct stashi…
  • If they died in tiger form, that might explain why. I don't know if it reses with half of max HP or half of current hp--if it was half of normal max and they died in tiger form, then they'd come back with half of regular. I'll make a study on this b…
  • This would be my suggestion. +5s aren't unreasonable, and lunar rings are only ~30m anymore, so it's not hugely expensive. Frankly, R7 isn't worth the extra coin at current rep prices, so if you really like that weapon, I'd say stick to R6. That mol…
  • Just a note on the chi.... As a sage veno, I understand the value of chi entirely. I routinely do as well as or better than +10 R9 venos just using my weak +7 sinrabansho because I keep my chi up to triple spark a lot more than my rivals. In that co…
  • 69 would most likely be undoable. No pet can tank polearm, period. 0 pdef/mdef. Then pet dies and he's likely to kill you before you have time to summon a new one, and salvation's shield won't prevent the debuff. This is far more dangerous than just…
  • Are you talking about 39 or 51? 51 wyvern is a considerably challenging boss due to its amping which pets have no way to purify, whilst a sin can triple spark it off. It can hurt quite a bit amped--on my veno, the outside clone (General Feng from ti…

    Although I've yet to learn it (have the book, but slow getting to 99), I'm fairly certain it's actually a 25% chance per thicket plant, which comes out to be a 69% chance if all mobs are hit by all four hits. So it is actually roug…
  • I understand the mp issue, but honestly I would never res buff someone I didn't have to, which generally means myself and the cleric in instances since I rarely if ever care to solo heal. And as far as solo pve goes, I would much rather have it maxe…
  • Remove or rebalance stealth so as to allow some chance for people to react before they get two sparked from stealth and die with no damage in log at all. <_<; And either enable veno reflects in pvp or deactivate psy ones there.
  • Doesn't appear to be affecting Lost City currently either, at least from what I can see. Tome lists/prices on AH seem normal and no low offers on WC. RT and HL are both east coast servers, aren't they? Any reports from Dreamweaver?

    Love: Up and Down can only be created using a Scroll of Tome. The highest level of tome able to be made through normal combination is Lv 6.
