    There's a bug where if a lumorian pot uses its DefUp+IceSpikes WS, even if you dispelled IceSpikes it wouldn't remove it. Wonder if they fixed it.

    My promathia static fought Ouryu last night, we were very confused why we couldn't dispel/finale his stoneskin. So we just ran over him stoneskin and all.

    Today I read the patch notes and start laughing...

    RNG is more powerful than ever. They just don't have that "we'll ignore the fact that this mob is 15 levels higher than you, you'll still do max damage" gift anymore.

    I hate rangers in xp parties now just because my favorite setup was NIN THF RNG.

    Not a very good trick partner when the RNG is by the mages.
