    I like Ambuscade, I just dont like the amount of time one must put in to get the full +1 set at least. Its like I know they want to give us stuff to keep busy but Id like to accomplish other things too.

    Ambugrind is fun through the nq gear. I feel after that is when it really wears on me. More ways to get the seals would help out a lot too.

    although we doin just difficult my friend is on DNC and he just saves up to 3k before i kill the first Adds and he kills them within 10 seconds, so we only have to deal with first wave. Im not sure if its possible on VD I dont think we have even tried.

    I've broken 70k with Rudra's and can generally sneak two in (with skillchain) before Impact Barrier goes up. I've oneshotted the bird this way starting from 90% (but the add still spawns and you have to kill it). I've only done VD.

    I'm sure there's a million ways to do this fight, but I usually have a second thf with me. I TARudra my RDM/WHM, which spawns the first set of adds, kill those, then simultaneously SARudra the bird with the other THF as soon as the adds are down, and that instantly kills it. It's become pretty routine.

    I still need to drag the two good THFs in my shell into this together because I'm pretty sure we can all time Rudra together and kill it from 90% before it spawns any adds. Should be a sure thing with 3 THFs, possible but will require some luck with 2.

    Hell no it's not. IV gets a lot more new content for their monthly fee. XI has become offline game you pay for every month. That's fine if you RMT, not much other reason

    Heck, even some F2P get way more content. Guild wars 2 just got living season 3, new masteries, and new fractal/pvp/world zones. Then the ones you pay for new content, like the Witcher, add 30-40 quality hours in all new areas for roughly the cost of 1 month of ambu-grind (or 80 fucking inventory)

    Ill just get the dye with total HM next month lol, so next cape will be stat+28
    No biggie, ive only got 3 capes per char (nyn thf blu sam, keh sam thf geo, ver blm sch and rdm, i never use nyns sam, or kehs sam, or vermys rdm). I could get a pld cape for nyn, but its not worth it.

    WS when he uses a TP move and you have enough time to skillchain.if he readies the barrier move,an add will spawn though.

    For the record, they corrected the "Does direction / weekday / etc. have any effect on crafting?" question's answer to be "They do not."

    Mystery fucking solved forever.

    Requesting someone make the FFXI section banner some massively derogatory comment about how fucking stupid people have been for 13 fucking years.

    Any blend of insults and pictures will do. I just don't want anyone to be able to use this section as a reference in any way without bathing in the shame of their own ignorance and idiocy.

    Wait, what? They changed their answer? Really?
    I'm fine with the direction/day but did they include moon phase too? Because I was pretty told by multiple people moon phase DID have an effect instead.

    Goddamnit no, stop. Just stop.

    It was a far-fetched allakhazam thing that has gone on for far too long.

    Moon phase has no effect on crafting besides fishing.

    Going by this it doesn't include moon phase. There's an "etc" but I guess that goes down to personal interpretation wether that includes moon phase or not. I'd be [b[very[/b] glad if that were true.

    I have not much experience with crafting unlike others in here, personally I never really noticed any statistically relevant variable affecting crafting, and that includes moon phase too. People kept telling me moon phase worked for real blahblah, but honestly I always ignored it all. Fuck waiting or caring for moon phases, srsly.
    What I did personally notice is some sort of "streak", I'm not sure if this is meant to be or if it's a consequence of how naive their random number generator is, but very often I get HQs close to each other, it happened so often I doubt it's just a coincidence.
    But again, maybe it's not some hidden and intended-to-be mechanic, but just a side product of how their RNG works?

    I remember other people talking about something like this in the past but never found any solid evidence. Not like it's something you can "control" anyway, it was just out of pure curiosity.

    It's confirmation bias. People decide that new moon = HQs and then they only craft on new moon. Only crafting on new moon is one way to ensure you only HQ on new moon.

    That's very logical. Hope it's exactely like that, makes me feel less bad for always ignoring that stuff :D

    Instead did you ever experience this "HQ streak" thing yourself Byrth?

    Wow you really are full retard.

    Nevermind the 10+ years of HARD STATISTICAL EVIDENCE, you even want to clutch to superstition in the face of official statements.

    Woo boy. Science illiteracy is a helluva drug.
