What's the fastest method to get seals?
Should I get the game now or wait and see how 2.0 is?
wait till the new expansion in xi is out, if it sucks go to 2.0
So how does Marauder's Berserk work? Is it something that should be left on full time?
I don't understand the whole "effect resets" aspect to it.
When you hit something, your attack power goes up and your defense goes down. When you get hit, your attack and defense revert to their original values. Rinse, and repeat.Berserk: Increases your attack power and reduces your defense with each successful attack. Effect resets upon taking damage and fades upon reuse. Cannot be used simultaneously with Rampage.
If you re-use the ability, then the stance will go away and your attack and defense will revert to their original values.
I think most people just use Rampage instead of Berserk, but if you know you aren't tanking and aren't fighting something whose AOE could one-shot you, then sure you can keep it up full time.
Basically is it a cumulative sum effect, or if you land 3 hits and then take one hit does it revert to as if you've landed zero hits? Thats what I didn't get.
If you miss 3 times and get hit once or twice, is it a negative effect?
But I think Raldo explained it enough where I can grasp it. Just trying to gauge it's impact on the Marauder class or Warrior job i guess. I don't have rampage yet to compare.
I would assume that "effect resets" means that the effect goes back to zero after a single hit, regardless of how many times you stacked the berserk effect up by landing hits. I would also assume that the effect cannot go negative by getting hit with no berserk effect stacks.
That said, these are merely assumptions (as was my earlier explanation of the ability), and despite having MRD50 for a long time, I don't think I've ever used Berserk.
Honestly, I wish these stances worked like FFXI's DNC steps or Diablo 3's Nephalem Valor, where it put a little number in the corner of the buff icon so you could accurately gauge how many stacks of [effect] you have, when it caps, and when/how it fades.
Yes the effects of Berserk and Raging Strike really need to be made more clear.
Power Surge not only tells you the tier but the gains are displayed in the stat window, meanwhile we don't even know if those ^ abilities even increase the actual attack stat or if they give some kind of damage modifier.
Berserk is completely worthless solo (and it's usefulness in groups is still questionable) and they give it to you first when you're likely to still be lvling by yourself a lot while Rampage is perfect for soloing (helps offense, defense, and recovers HP).
edit: just checked and LNC gets Life Surge and Power Surge at the same levels MRD gets Zerk and Rampage but LNC gets them in the logical order
You'll almost never use Berserk unless you know for a fact that you're not tanking. To be honest though, the few times I actually went DPS WAR I actually liked it - minus the fact that I often had to hold back on damage cause I was hovering between solid/flashing red. We've got nothing to shed enmity with when we're not tanking. lol
So I have a few questions, I'm currently leveling BLM (34) and plan to level whm after. However I have been mainly grinding mobs to 20ish and then burning through leves. However I'm probably going to run out before 40, should I just find a spot with a bunch of mobs and grind them for exp when I run out of leves?
Also which gathering/crafting classes should I focus on if I'm planning to be blm/whm mainly? And is it better to stockpile leves to level gathering/crafting or just stockpile mats/gather shit? Also does any of the crafting make decent profit? The only gil I currently have is mainly from spamming leves (200kish I think right now).
You can start to join xp parties at your current lv as its pretty common for party shouts above 30+ and more common 40+.
Leves will always be the best form of xp for any battle class or crafting/gathering class. Due to their limited amount you have to use them wisely on what you want to lv. They are probably best used for gathering as you dont have to run around looking for nodes to work on. Crafting can just stockpile mats and go to town.
All crafts make money if your willing to make/gather/sell stuff. Goldsmith and Leather/Weaver probably profit the most as everyone buys armor/jewelery. Weapons are mostly a 1-time deal.
Is Gridanian Officer's Overcoat worth getting for any jobs?
servers go down for anyone else just now?
Unless I'm misunderstanding what you're suggesting, that would do absolutely nothing.
Berserk requires you to hit something first before it has any effect, so just popping it right before weaponskills would be entirely pointless.
Assuming there is an initial bonus I doubt it's very high and probably not high enough to warrant the time it takes to activate Berserk then re-activate Rampage after WS, also resetting any accumulated Rampage effect.
