    Holy crap! @[email protected] The augs are stupid. lol
    5x ranks, increase not limited to 1:1.
    Def caps at 50 for instance... Um... yeah. PDT/MDT-10, DT-5, etc. I like.

    The surprise spells getting added is a huge list of annoying quested stuff like Teleport:Yhoat and Warp II... Which is a big suprise. O.o

    Eh, the spells make sense. If someone was the sort that quested them solely to sell, they more or less lost access to them without creating a mule or rebuying. The latter, however, depends on others actually doing the same in today's depressed population environment. Which probably means next to never.

    Definitely. Would've expected an extra 0, personally.

    Like the other dude said, the main draw is to cover people that already completed the quests long ago and sold them, thinking they weren't going to level those jobs. The population on most servers is so low nowadays that it's probably pretty difficult to find anyone selling them, and it's pretty dumb to have to make a new character, grind out fame, etc. for a handful of spells in a dead game.

    Glad I had all my teleport and warp spells back when it was respectable.

    Can someone move the old Ambuscade info out of the main page please? ^^;;

    Since V1 is a repeat of Orcs and people are already doing it, I'll leave that alone for now and focus on V2.

    V2N stuff so far:
    * Starts vs 1x boss mob, treant, Splendid Sakura
    ** Has 20' plague aura
    *** Has dropped a couple times off the boss, but no idea what the trigger is. Did not appear to be directly connected to any JA/WS/Spell in the log.
    ** TP Moves:
    *** Pollenstorm: AoE damage + paralyze, centered on mob, wipes shadows
    *** Pinecone Bomb: AoE damage + sleep, centered on target, wipes shadows
    *** Drill Branch: Conal AOE damage, possible dispel, wipes shadows
    *** Chelate: Single target, no clue what it does since it has always "has no effect" so far regardless of the target. >_>? Anyone got a legit idea what a chem term might indicate for move function? lol

    ** At certain HP levels, it will spawn an add. Adds are treants, have significantly less HP than boss, have not seen any TP moves, but have different auras.
    *** @66% - Languishing Larch, 20' Amnesia aura
    *** @~50% - Hibernating Hickory, 20' Silence aura
    *** @~20% - Hibernating Hickory, 20' Silence aura
    (2nd/3rd adds are approximate since I knocked off too much HP w/ MBs to be exact. Auto-attacked my way down to 66%, so should be correct for 1st add.)
    All adds can all be up at the same time. This will reduce your party to nothing but occasionally auto-attacking when not paralyzed and/or slept. ._.;; (Hint: Don't ignore adds.)

    All mobs were highly resistant to Sleep and immune to Break family spells. Had no problems landing all other debuffs a BLM/RDM can crank out.

    Seems like it will be darn near impossible to solo except for specific jobs. I'm assuming there is some sort of gimmick involved, like elemental weaknesses, but adds died too fast on N to poke around properly. Single Blizz6 one-shotted them. lol The official theme this month is seasons/allergies btw... <,<;; Keep in mind that trusts will no longer attempt to -na aura effects away as of this update.

    V2VD: Adds were being crapped out like crazy. Roughly every 10%-15% of the bosses HP it seemed. Adds can in fact use TP moves, same moves as the boss. SCH > WHM for healing this, Silence auras neutered WHM trusts, but Regens would help hold out til adds get downed. Even on VD, adds have very low HP.. seemed to be ~30k.

    I need help spamming V2 at various difficulties. I couldn't tell if there is a set pattern or it's randomized as to which add you get at each HP point. Need to find another realboy crashtest dummy to do suicide marathons w/ me for this stuff. XD

    Crusader also has his elemental resistances mapped out. XD Is there an easy way to import the resist template into individual mob pages?

    I can toss the new template on there for you and you can type it in.


    EDIT: Did.

    not that it hugely matters but did you catch this in existing items changes?

    The issue wherein the icons for the following items were incorrect.
    Diamond Buckler / Diamond Buckler II

    Diamond Buckler/II had a generic mythril buckler icon before the update fixed it.
