The effect of the 1.25 multiplier at the end of WS damage for level 90 relics should lower the value of DEX or AGI further when stacked right? I'm saying this because the STR bonus is applied to all hits and doubles/triples/quadruples also receive the bonus of the 25% multiplier, right? I ask because I'm currently getting my wife a Mandau and trying to get her gear set sorted out for MS.

I am trying to remember if the bonus was an FTP bonus or a straight % bonus to the WS damage. If it is an FTP bonus, it will only apply to the 1st hit (and still be similar to what you are suggesting) then the WS(str mod) part will be bigger, (1st hit only though) and SATA will remain the same.

However, if it is just a % bonus to the WS number, I am not sure if it would include or exclude the SATA portion. If it is just a multiplier at the end (like piercing bonus) then it MIGHT apply to the whole thing as the WS damage is all batched together in the program before it gets spit out.

I am not really sure. I remember reading something when it first came out and I think it was figured to be an FTP bonus, but dont quote me on that.

It's a *1.25 multiplier at the end of the WS calculation not an fTP bonus.

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:
