Thf af3 set augFollow

#1 Jan 09 2011 at 4:39 PM Rating: Decent
Sorry i cant show an ss of this but i play on lolbox and havent figured out how to make ss of the log menu.

Anyway i was playing around in tahrongi canyon a few min ago and noticed something i havent before. A triple attack with all 3 attacks doing triple dmg.

Normal Crit hits were doing around 180 to 200 dmg while i got 672,618 and 510 on the triple attack ( all crit hits )

I tp in 4/5 thf af3 btw.

According to what i heard so far only the 2nd and 3rd hit are supposed to do triple dmg... If i missed something i will just delete this post later^^

I have also noticed triple dmg only kicking in on the 3rd hit a few weeks ago but ignored it.

The augment does in fact triple the damage on all hits. However, I have had one instance of only 2 hits with triple damage so there might be something wrong with it.

Tbh i have only seen it do triple dmg on all 3 hits twice so far... But i might have just missed it a few times.
I have seen it only proc on the 2nd and 3rd hit loads of times and i have also seen triple dmg on the 3rd hit only.

And 4/5 thf af3 +2 seem to give me about 5~% triple dmg augument and not the 15 to 20% i was expecting.

From the sounds of it, it is just % chance to proc on any individual hit on a triple proc. Not a 'all or none' thing where it would either proc for all 3 or zero. I keep meaning to pay attention to it, but since I only have head/legs+2, its really rare and doesnt ever happen when I am looking for it. Still havent actually seen it yet. Need to start parsing for the sake of parsing and catch this stuff.

I sadly cant parse anything since i play on lolbox...

But i havent noticed only 1/3 hits doing triple dmg since i got 4/5 af3. Maybe its not a % increase with each af3 piece u add but just lets all 3 hits do triple dmg rather then just the 2nd and/or 3rd hit.

I have my +2 hat legs and hands, but I don't incorporate the hands because I'm using a slightly altered tp setup for now that caps haste (hat +2, homam hands, twilight belt, legs +2, ballerines) and I added dual wield mirke with +10 attack. I'll probably wind up throwing Loki's Kaftan into the body soon and run with that since my sTP thread showed promise with larger yields of sTP and runw ith scorpion queen, razed ruins, and 3rd atma to be decided. The bonus appears to activate at a low rate (1% per upgrade) as has been noted with other sets (if I remember correctly, didn't Kirschy say that the dark artifact activated at like a 1% rate based on his testing and that it was REALLY freaking rare so it was crazy hard to notice? I think he said he was hoping more pieces would really raise it because it didn't happen much with just 2-3 pieces).

At any rate, I consider the thf af3 V2 bonus a nice "icing on the cake" deal. It's great when it kicks in, but it's so rare it doesn't have a noticeable impact on the big picture (not when you have atmas and abyssites anyway.... those are just ... wow!!!)

Least I won't have to worry too much about leaving off the feet for homam to have capped haste

Adjust the resolution of menus.
The main screen resolution for "FINAL FANTASY XI" is dependent on the "Overlay Graphics Resolution" setting.
If the Overlay Graphics Resolution is set higher than the Menu Resolution, menus will be automatically resized.


I thought of it first:
