    Drain TP o_o

    LoL looks like Dark Knights are the new samurai's or the only Melee you will need at HnMs now haha.

    Buko just drained tp on a Impossible to Guage mob for 102 tp >.<. The recast timer is 1 minute on tp drain too

    Start lvling up! DRKs

    Funny. A guy was just giving me a speech yesterday how DRK has always sucked, sucks, and always will suck.

    lol

    BTW also note this recast is affected by haste.

    Bubbly bernie is Impossible to Gauge.

    But drk + mnk = TP denial team maybe?

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    Which ITG mob? DRKs in my LS are draining about 50-60ish off EP-EM mobs.

    edit: I also here that it gets fully resisted on some stuff like ENM mobs.

    I was thinking more along the lines of a short fight situation, DS+Absorb TP, ES+Absorb TP then they can warp themselves.

    That's still like... awesome. All those emo DRKs can finally put down their razors.

    A question: is it an offensive spell in that if a mob is slept, Abs-TP will wake it?

    Yeah, I macroed in Chaos Burgeonet and Abyss Gauntlets for Drain-TP, and when I used it on the main mob for Sheep in Antlion's Clothing, I got:

    "Xanoxonax casts Absorb-TP on Tuchulcha, but the spell fails to take effect."

    I need to test it out some more, namely on merit mobs, etc. to see if this is even worth the time it takes to cast it.

    When I was testing it on EPs, 50 TP absorbed on Lesser Colibri with no Dark magic gear, 63 TP absorbed with Chaos Burgeonet and Abyss Gauntlets. Both of those times were with Black Cuisses though, so those might have added to the absorb amount.

    Zdenka casts Absorb-TP!

    55% Drained from the Flamingo.
    62% -> Groundskeeper
    38% ^
    37% ^
    Zdenka drains 97% TP from the Groundskeeper.


    about to fight faust, will update. The 38s were right after the fights started.

    -edit-
    Ppl killed Faust in the 20 mins it took us to pop/fight despot :/

    Oh, got AF2 hands, AF1 hat on... gonna buy dark earring and dark magic merits later oh, black cuisses too

    Ill post again if we can get any of the NMs ; ;/

    50% haste get this to 30s recast

    8 dark merits, get around 290-300 dark skill, DRK gonna replace SAM for HNMs if it lands well tbh.

    Once someone drains 50+ TP off a HNM consistantly, then and only then will I say drk has something useful.

    Btw, the kindred drks in ule have this spell :X

  14. #14

    I have Black Cuisses/Gadlings/Sollerets macroed in for Absorb TP, they seem to help, I was getting 50-90 TP on EXP monsters. It was a rather short party though, so I didn't get to really test it out.

  15. #15

    someone please test this on some HNMs.

    It seems its a hit-or-miss spell

    If it hits, it drains ALL the mobs TP or UP TO what your cap is. Cap prob determined my Dark Magic skill and Black gear.

    Dark Seal'd it, and got resisted on SteamC but it had that magic shield up :/

    If your toting the right haste gear, its a 30 second recast. So pretty fast recasts too.

    This definantly makes DRK a stronger EXP job, probably outparse dual axe WARs now on regular basis, even if NIN is subbed. (might need to for protection :/) If the DRK is decent, anyways

  17. #17

    Fought MG now, DarK Seal did 92% TP drain, and it resisted all 3 other times i tried "adfsdf, but the spell fails to take effect"

    275 Dark magic skill btw, anyone have a set up for max DRK Dark skill gear? and what it hits?

    My Dark skill is 265 so its not capped, 269? I beleive.

    279+ earring 3 + 16 merits is 298 right now, with AF1 head and AF2 hands and black cuisses. Need to try it with maxed out skill though really.

    keep in mind..

    Just because it says it "absorbs 50 tp" doesn't mean the mob loses 50..

    2 LS members were in ballista today, the DRK tp drained the war, it said drained 17 tp.. but the war only lost 6.

    The reverse is true many times on aspir... I get aspir casted on me, it says the monster drains 20MP but I lose 100. So sadly.. this may not have the effect on HNM's that all the melee desire of draining its TP to negate them being there.

    drk/blm + warp as suggest above ftw
