    BLM Specific Merits

    Hey guys I was just surfing and I found this site http://www.koolaid-ffxi.org/linkshel...e/Merit+Points

    It's got all the exact values for each merit point.

    I was wondering what BLM would we be most valuable, since it's just potenency , which is probably just like MAB for that spell group only.

    My current idea was to up Ice and Lightning specific merits but I just wanted to hear what you guys think.

    thunder5 for sure imo
    ive seen some people do ice5 but ice does less damage and is less useful on most endgame mobs, compared to thunder

    i dunno if you just mean the job categories for merit, but i'd do ele skill before anything for blm

    Na I've got a plan to max INT, Elemental Magic, -enimity (I don't play tank jobs) and MP , but for just the BLM specific ones I didn't really have a clue. good input so far though ^^d

    only reason i could see doing ice instead of thunder is 2100+ bursts on buffalo, but that is the only thing. Thunder is best on everything else but Turtle except now Ouryu (&Y#%*% Earth Dragon)

    well if ur JP, ice is better for 2/3's the endgame.. (thunder for fafnir, ice for behemoth and aspi)

    thunder is hot tho ><.. anyone gone to POLUtilities and listened to thunder5 sound effects? sounds awesome lol.

    might as well put upgrades into aero damage for Kirin since NAs will never touch any of the ground HNMs.

    Not every server is JP dominated, on midgard NA controls 3 ground HNMs right now, JPs have barely even touched aspid and nidhogg the past 6 months.

    Idk.. I already have a taru in my LS that does about 2050 dmg on MB with thundraga3, everytime. He doesnt have merits yet either >< all from gear. I'd like to see him get +thunder potency and +int >< then I can see him die more =P

    fo sure


    i have one thunder so far, i was going to do part thunder part ice but said screw it in the end, idea being have a lil upgrades for both light and dark. i think if i really get into the merits thing more i'll do elemental skill first that seems rather useful, i'm not touch enmity ever i am undecided if i'll ever play tank of any kind, doubtful at best.
