    Try subbing war now. If you're smart about hate and know the right distance to stand, you can actually do slightly more dmg than before. I was in a deco pt w/ a 71 ranger, whos slugs got as high as 1500 yesterday. Its only a nerf if you don't change the way you play. On the plus side, its a good time to buy all ranger gear 90% off, so that when people realize the job is still good, you can cash out on it.

    oh, i'm sorry. i forgot forcing rangers into subbing warrior to do damage that still doesn't compare to what they used to do with ninja sub unless they stand a perfect 15.4 meters away from the monster actually made them a better job class!

    not to mention how easy it is to stand that perfect distance to a mob being kited around a room.

    I don't plan to ever play RNG hardcore again, but all the same, the reports of its demise are greatly exaggerated. Yes, its a horrible nerf. Now instead of doing high damage with no fear of dying, they have to control hate, woopdedo.

    Hmmm... Sounds like another job... Oh wait, Black Mages. (I guess they need to petition Square to give them Invincible as a 2 minute job ability.)

    We kinda have Invincible.

    Manafont + PLD Cover. Works wonders when something's gotta die and it's gotta die fast.

    I'm thinking that maybe, if you put your leading damage BLM in same party as PLD, and begin nuking something to death with him keeping hate, and the PLD covering, how much more damage would you do when trying to kill something off?

    Ideas, ideas... I'd like to see what happens with this for Wyrm 1% mode. Start the nukefest at like 3%, hit a Light SC then, toss 3 BLM in a pt with 3 PLD, put the BLM behind the PLD, Nuke until pull hate, Covers, nuke, nuke, nuke.

    lol ... probably wouldn't work, but would be fun as hell to watch.

    I would cure bomb the BLM. Often, it works.

    Save the Queen is for those situations. I am glad I got one when I saw it on the AH. I have it macro'ed in for my Cover. That 1 extra cover has given me just enough time to get voke back up, Flash up, or just save that person's life as the mob is about to die.

    But about the wrym, would that cause a Spike Flail? I never have fought against any of the wyrms.

    I see. Flail comes from a huge transfer in hate, or when the wyrm turns 180 degrees really quick? I'm curious, I hear people talk about flails, like one LS on Valefor wiped the pool area in Arey (about 60 people) because my friend said "They were stupid, and caused a flail" What conditions cause a "Spike Flail" to occur?
