Recall- spells, do you use them?Follow

So, seeing as the recall spells are worth a decent amount, I was half tempted to quest and sell them. But after thinking about leveling WHM (again, for the 4th time) I realized, I might use the spells.

So I ask you, the WHM community of Allah, do you use any of the recall spells? If so, how often?

On previous accounts, I've never used the recalls, but I've had them.

Every so often. I'd imagine I'd use them more if I wasn't able to just swap to BLM and use Retrace.

Just get all your spells

Recall-Jugner and a 30 second walk to Campaign dude is a free Retrace.

Recall-Pashh and a 30 second walk to Maw is a quick way to Crawler's Nest for oh-so-entertaining Simurgh camping. Smiley: frown

Recall-Meriph is a quick way to Garlaige's back door maw if you don't have a Retrace.

All of them are also handy to have if you do SCNMs.

While it's true I rarely use them, they're incredibly nice to have when the need arises.

Haven't bothered doing the quest for Recall-Jugner yet (Jugner [S] needs to die in a fire anyway) but I use Recall-Meriph and Recall-Pashh on a semi-regular basis because MP recovers slightly faster than AN do.

EDIT: I plan on getting Recall-Jugner at some point in the future. I just need to get around to getting the telecrystal first, which is the part that's about sixty times more annoying.

They are incredibly handy if you ever do the WotG missions. I can't even imagine how long it would have taken without them.

I use Recall-Jugner alot to get to Sandoria [S], since I don't have Retrace handy; that's about the only one I use, unless it's a rare Recall-shout.

I use them a lot. As was mentioned, Recall-Jugner is my ghetto Retrace in the same way I've used Altep for years. Meriph and Passh come in handy for quests/mission in the past and we often do SCNMs.

Whenever i go to the past thats not from Whitegate (can get a retrace there easily) i'll Recall Jugner. Its a fash bobo ride to the NPC who will port you to your country.

I'll use Recal Merip if i want to get to Castlo O fast, just tele there, grab a boco, ride to the maw, and go through. Its the fastest way to Castle O.

I have not found a Similar use for Recall Pash yet, but thats just because i don't travel over there much.

I would say to get them, ya never know when you'll need them.

Agreeing with above that I use Recall-Meriph for getting to Castle O. Was nice for camping okotes and fumas for mnk, and just for generally slaughtering yagudos whenever i felt the need arise.

Only really used RM to get shellmates to the annoying Sandworm pop down where Waraxe Beak spawns in the present. Retrace pretty much handles most of my other get to the past needs.

Aside from getting to the past and present Beastmen strongholds, one of my major uses of Recall is to do the Deep Cover III campaign op. Around each crystal are beastmen sufficient high-level to complete the operation.

Since I've accumulated an extra stack of blank plates by keeping my leftovers from prior runs, it's very quick to Recall out, take a dozen pictures, and then warp back to spam trade-ins.

I have them on my main and rarely use them, quested them on my mule that doesn't have WHM levelled and sold them, and the mule I generally keep on WHM hasn't got them yet (but he's usually just raise3 machine).

I have my main 75BLM mule that I generally just retrace myself on though and recall staves so not exactly typical really.

I sometimes use them after LS parties if somebody wants to go do some Campaign. Nice to have the ability to do a favor for friends.
