    Sounds like it just came up and had to be fixed soon. Can't remember an actual maintenance taking that long. Updates sure. Then again I can't remember them saying they were doing server replacements before either

    I wonder......

    There's a couple of things in that post that make me raise an eyebrow. 1. "World Transfer Service unavailable 30 minutes before maintenance" and 2. "Server replacement maintenance"

    I'm wondering if there is going to be a few merged servers after this maintenance is completed? I'm also trying to recall if the "World Transfer Service" thing being unavailable is a standard procedure or not, because for whatever reason I keep thinking that it isn't always a standard practice. Of course though, please correct me if I am wrong.

    World Transfer Service is always disabled 30 minutes before a maintenance, likely so that there's no risk of character corruption due to servers shutting down during data being copied.

    That's something that would be loudly announced long before. It's probably them needing to replace some hardware and testing and getting that shit running again takes ages.

    I did have those problems, I want to say, on Friday. All I did was reset my modem and I've had no issues since then.

    It does specify Tier III spells, so it's highly likely that T1/T2's don't work. That's new info as far as I know.

    Yes but not as much as you might think. It says easier to do with T3 now. This somewhat implies it was already possible to do with T3 and doesn't really preclude t1/2. We also have no idea what parameters they are using when trying to use a Tier with dmg so for all we know their idea of making it easy with T3 could be buff/debufless as a drk making it so T1s are quite possible or they could just mean you can do it outside of MBing and so non pimp players without enough buffs/debuffs might actually need T4. And then there is how well was this translated and the verbiage was added and means little to nothing.

    I know we've been "proccing" WoC randomly spamming T1 spells rotating all 6 elements. Procs were really rare, REALLY, but then again the jobs rotating/spamming T1 spells had nothing else to do, so why not trying even if the chances are low? That was oru way of thinking at least.

    If the threshold here is a damage one though, and it was about T4-5 kind of threshold, then I have no bloody clue how a T1 could pass that threshold before this fix. Yet it happened, so well, huh?
    In my LS we thought it was not about damage, but about using the right element at the right time. Appearently it's somewhat related to damage instead, odd.



    I'm having a hard time believing JP people on the JP forums aren't asking our very same questions right now, unless this strategy for WoC is already present on the JP wiki. Can anybody fluent with japanese check either the JP boards or the JP wiki? Nyarlko maybe?

  12. #13732

    I'd lean toward a cumulative damage angle, myself. Basically, they could slap a sort of stoneskin-like buff on it where each nuke deducts from its pool, and once empty the proc triggers. Any nuke tier could get there, but higher ones should do it more quickly. I'd say anyone that does the fight in the future should log all outgoing damage to see if we could possibly discern a pattern or minimum.

    Then again, it could just be something dumb like the higher the nuke damage, the higher the probability of a trigger with no real memory of prior attacks.

    Could be even funner like nuke dmg within a short time period. Like say a time period as large as the cumulative magic dmg reduction is

    If the damage threshold were cumulative, then spamming T1s could eventually break it and allow for procs. My understanding of SE-ese is that it should be possible now for a group-buffed BLM to crack the threshold with a single T3. I'm betting it's something like "breaking the threshold unlocks the ability to proc, but proc chance is not 100%". I am curious as to whether or not elemental ws count at all towards these procs, or if it's only "Elemental Magic" that get counted...

    My understanding of written Japanese is middling at best, my kanji is pathetic, and I still have to rely on GTrans for base understanding (and then look at the original text to try to narrow down any obvious machine errors.) My spoken understanding is more passable and can handle general stuff like getting main points for the Freshly Picked broadcasts. I still throw up the Kincard flag myself if there is anything that I feel is important but can't pinpoint the details.

    Sounds like we'll be able to buy more than 12x analysis crystals at a time.

    April update notes are up.

    Ambuscade armor upgrade:

    Sounds to me like we're getting +2 versions, not just augs for +1s. They are adding something to storage moogle, which could be a cosmetic/event but I'm betting it includes the newly upgraded Ambuscade armor.

    Normal monthly stuff +:
    ・Decrease the amount of merit points required for exchanging trigger items needed for certain Battlefields < HTBs or Master Trials? I'm betting on Trials.
    ・Add new recipes (Synergy).. Probably another worthless cosmetic +1, but hey I can hope for actual changes. >.>

    That's 'bout it.
