    Hi2u Trollbane

    So I was casually parsing a party, and I go to look at my stats and notice that the other ninja has a 25 (TWENTY FIVE) percent crit rate. All sorts of alarms went off in my head, wtf, this can't be right etc...it was very early in the merit party. But 2hr 30min later, she's still at 24.7% crit rate.

    We're in mamook right now doing puks/wyverns/mamools/crabs, my crit rate is 14% by comparison. I'm Senj/Fudo w/ +10 DEX (no haidate).

    The other ninja is TPing in Nin Chainmail +1, Nin Gloves +1, Haidate, Senj/Unji, Turban, Brutal/Suppa, Swift Belt etc...

    I will post the parse if anyone doubts/after the party ends.

    Silly ninja could be getting like 26-27% crit rate with Fudo in offhand.

    I thought Trollbane only worked in Halvung region though? I think I missed a few topics on it.

    I have full crit merits too btw, I would assume the other nin is fully merited.

    Really? So what regions do Lamiabane and Mamoolbane work in, then?

    24.something crit is fucking high. I was usually around 17% in old areas on +40dex.

    Although I had some strange Party fight Wamouras and my critical shot up to 25% - they have to have some -AGI or Crit+ or something. (No Bane or crit Body)

    Well... gogo myths about hidden crit+ on NIN chainmail+1!

    I've parsed a 2 hour party with a nin that hit 26% crit rate. Not saved as it was a while ago but they were at around double my crit rate so I remembered it...

    I thought +crit% on weapons only affected that weapon's swings. So fudo would be +1.5%...?
    Or is that what you were saying?

    I apologize but what is Trollbane, Mamookbane, etc. I don't mean to sound noobish but I am just not familiar, thanks.

    Ahh now I remember reading about that. Sucks that they don't work in Caederva or Bhaflau Thickets.

    Indeed, Caederva is my favorite solo/duo xp spot

    Speaking of crazy NINs, am I just a noob for never having seen a Jin like this, or what?

    http://pages.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/~birchc/ffxi/jin1605.jpg

    This was from a NIN in a Thickets merit party I was in the other day. He also hit a 1575 one, and another 1500+ over the course of the party. Previous to this, I don't think I had ever seen a Jin get much higher than 1300 or so. He also had a really high critical hit rate, and was definitely the closest I've ever had a NIN parse to my MNK in a merit party. Didn't check his gear, but visually it looked about the same as what Dezzimal listed in his post.

    Makes me kind of sad that a 3-hit WS can get so much higher than is even possible with my 8-hit one.

    3 hit can double attack. 8 hit can't. 3 hit means the hits are powered up to do good damage. 8 hit means the hits are toned down to do balanced damage. Sorry dude, but 3-5 hit WSes are best.

    3-5 hit WS are capable of Double Attacking, Critting, etc, on stronger hits. They can also miss a stronger hit. They have higher damage potential, but that's just it. It's potential.

    Asuran is consistant 1100ish damage. One miss during it won't matter as much as a missed hit from Rampage or Jin.
