New Despoil FindingsFollow

So since SE boosted the sh*t out of this, I'd thought I'd share some of my findings with you guys.

So far, Despoil has yet to take effect on a NM.

The debuffs seem to vary by mob family, or job. For instance, despoiling a bird in Abyssea - Misereaux will always yield slow or acc down (Slow being the most common it seems), never matt down, which is good.

Bones in ulegaund range (The mages) always yielded magic defense down, but probably has something else.

Demons in Ulegaund range always yielded attack or defense down, no exceptions, mage jobs and melee jobs alike. The attack down would also trigger after Amano's attack down, and vice versa.

This is beginning to look like a very predictable pattern, which I like.

I'll be doing more testing once I hit 85, but feel free to share your debuffs paired with mob area, job and type in this thread.

I would like to help but that would involve me actually using despoil.

I saw that, and replied as well. However I didn't know if you intended to parse and see if you could find a pattern or just wanted to tell your experience with it.

PS: The Karma system, while not as bad as some people want you to believe, is nowhere near infallible, I've seen someone who backed up their post with parses, math and was really congenial get rate down x10 and the guy who was all ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG U SUX got rated to good, so... Don't take it to heart.

Despoil seems to be tied to WHAT you steal off a mob. in abyssea atm doing lizards and everytime I steal egg it results in mag def down. Tail = acc down and skin = evasion down. Done it more than 5 times for each item and those have been the results every time.

I'll be sure to note that down and dig through my logs to see if it that was coincidence or you're onto something. (Not doubting just wanting to check)

I was using it in Abyssea - Tahrongi on mandies.

I was stealing 2 Leaf Mandragora Buds and Saruta Cotton.

I wasnt paying much attention to which debuff landed with each steal, but the 2 effects that were landing were Atk Down and Def Down.

Every time I stole a 2 leaf, I dropped it, so I was able to steal it a few times. I didnt do this every 5 min, but I did use it fairly often over the course of the run because those debuffs are handy (even if only for the 30 seconds the mob is alive).

I've been killing Ladybugs in between Goblintrap pops and I've noticed that Despoil is a **** of a lot more accurate than Steal is (w/ +9 in Steal gear and nothing to Despoil). Also gives Acc Down on em. I'm hesitant to say it, but I wouldn't count out Despoil yet, especially with the apparent hard-on SE has had for it lately, what with the AF3 pieces giving + and "enhances" to it.

I don't remember exactly what I stole, but a DNC wanted to duo with me one day against flies in Abyssea, I thought all flies were IT++ so I just pulled one. Ended up giving it accuracy down and evading almost the whole fight (until it wore off that is).
