    BLU in central limbus

    anyone tried BLU on omega/ultima yet? does stun land often? other spells damage?

    i imagine BLU stun will make blm job easier, if not he can still alternate between physical and magical spells on the two forms of omega or when ultima puts up shields

    wondering if i should have a blm go as BLU instead for our omega later tonight

    Well, in KS99 Horlais Peak, BLU was able to Stun meteor, so perhaps could prove quite useful(for everything except Buster, of course)

    I tried BLU for Ultima, stun landed often but not at a high percentage, more than enough for me to spam it. If you want to do damage you're forced to sub THF for cannonball/death scissors etc, the multi hit moves won't do shit.

    i've heard rumors to the effect that SA+Headbutt would stun normally unstunnable mobs...is this true? or was this done without SA?

    was BLU/NIN, so im guessing you don't need it, but it's always better safe than sorry

    Most mobs which are unstunnable are due to elemental properties. (Earth based mob like Aspid, Thunder type mob like KB.) Whereas Headbutt and most BLU spells are a physical stun, where they can work anywhere. So basically it really opens up what can be stunned and what cant. It's basically like having access to Flat Blade whenever you want it.

    My friend BTB has used Blue Mage on every Ultima since he got it to 75. I'll point him at this thread but it does seem pretty good.

    I know this may seem much smaller, but it's the same principle: Diabolos CoP fight, went back and did it for a friend, and we brought a BLU along. DRK now has reason to get even more emo since something else has a stun on a 10 second timer. =D Gold... or well, BLU.

    BLU will never replace reliable stunners. 90% success rate isn't so great an unlucky 10%. And this is coming from a BLU.

    How long is DRK Stun recast, assuming no haste gear? 30 seconds or something?

    BLU casting Head Butt three times in the span it takes for DRK stun to recast will have a damn good chance of landing. Neener.

    You don't get 3 chances in the cast time of one enemy spell/weapon skill, only 1, and it has to count.

    Wow... have you ever been in a stun order before? Ever seen one? It doesn't matter how long the recast time is, DRK stun > BLU stun all situations that magical stun work. LOL THINK OF A BETTER WAY TO MAKE FUN OF DRK.

    LOL OMG WHERE DID I PUT IN MY POST THAT I WAS MAKING FUN OF DRKS LOL.

    Calm the fuck down, motherfucker. I'm just posting the times, because he asked what the DRK stun time was, and since he's not a BLU, I put the BLU stun times down there as well. Now go sit in the corner with your lolblackmagic and lolscythe and cry and slit your wrists while the PUP takes your invite you gimpy son of a bitch.

    before the thread gets derailed too far, here's result from omega tonight...






    couldn't tell if stun landed because blms kept stun rotation and head butts landed after stun...... and then he died not too long into the fight because his deathscissers were doing 500~600s and 900ish on SATA lol

    Stun won't land through mana barrier, headbutt I think will. It lands through demon eye's magic shield and pot's magic barrier. When I went BLU in limbus I never had a Headbutt or Tailslap (part of Store TP ability so pretty common to have it memorized) resisted on normal mobs, but I think generally their level is pretty low because on RDM I rarely if ever have nukes resisted and RDM elemental skill is shit.

    Anyway, Headbutt/Tailslap aren't the only stuns BLU get. Jettaru and Temporal Shift seem to have very high land rate, and I can't recall ever seeing Blitzstrahl resisted, although I rarely use it for a few obvious reasons.
