I find that I generate a lot of enmity as it is.
Either you don't do any real endgame, or your tanks are terrible.
The same could be said of your experiences after dinging 75. If you think our JA's should get an emnity boost whilst under the effects of Perfect Dodge, then "Either you don't do any real endgame, or your tanks are terrible." Just sayin'.
I was thinking this at least would give it a use. Tank messed up and died to ixion? toss Thf in RNG party, steal ALL their hate, and kite/flee-kite.
As if "it" wasn't already useful as is. I do not see as many THFs complaining about PD as I do with say BLU's about Azure Lore, or RNG's about EES who's Sidewinders regularly do more DMG than their two hour. It is in my opinion that Perfect Dodge is incredibly useful. I just wish it was on a < 2 hr. timer. If your tank is "messing up" on Ixion enough to cause you concern, then perhaps he/she should come WHM as punishment.
Zerging Kirin/Bv2/KV/Etc? Stick Thf in Drk party, and 2hr half way through. If you run out of time on CS Stun (If you're using it) then at least your Drks wont die. For Shells attempting their first/first few zerg HNM fights, a dead Mkris drk can be a serious problem.
But that is just it. Zerg strats are risky. If you are willing to take the chance on Kirin Zerg, then sure go for it. You enter that zerg strat knowing full well though that if your Kclub/Mkris DRKs start falling to the way side while Kirin starts popping his friends, then you probably have failed your run and with it your seals.
That is rudimentary knowledge though. You learn of these risks way early on in this game. As early as Ronfaure. Take a level 2 thinking he is gong to take on a VT Orc. He/She has to make a choice. Will put a potential home point on the line for about 200xp or should I just stick with worms and rabbits and make the same XP over time? The risk your LS takes by zerging of an HNM is wasted Seals (time camping or Cloud Evoker) if they fail but the chance to end the fight quicker than killing mini's 1-by-1 and killing Kirin last.
At the moment it has no use in anything outside of messing up while solo or such.
Your version of an enhanced two hour would definately bring a appeal to THF coming to endgame not just because some lead wants TH. I'm not saying it's useless. Any buff to any JA is better than nothing. While your "If I was SE, I would..." idea is nice and all; I would hope that if you we're given FFXI to manage, fixing something else besides Perfect Dodge would be a priority. I can think of a couple of things if you want. Here's one:
"Why am I level 100 cooking (A veteran) but still capable of failing a synth at level 2; or even under level 50 for that matter? It's like Emiril Lagasse or Rachel Ray failing to make a bag of microwavable popcorn." Edited, Aug 14th 2009 4:33pm by Brockonunicorn
