Many of these topics are repeated topics that hopefully will be referenced and avoid having to repeat ourselves quite so much (yeah, right). Anyway...this thread is for you and ... (you, so if there are any suggestions, recommendations, criticism, insults that you'd like to post, please do so and all will be given proper attention (I'll let you figure out how much attention the insults will get :p).

That's actually one of the reasons I wanted to do this actually ;) I remember that thread and wished it was the main NIN/mage FAQ, but was never updated :)

Thanks!!

bump...

And if you folks feel this is worth of replacing the sticky at the top that isn't updated very often, please submit a request for it. They typically won't do that if the thread creator does it, so if you feel it'd be useful, please submit a request...

And please submit any threads you'd like to see up here :) Happy to add them :)

I have gone onto the forum and bumped it, come on ya'll..... the old one hasn't been updated since Sept!!!!

Unless we get it permanent with someone who is on the ball were just gonna have more and more repeat threads.

No offence to the original Thread maker...... but Sept????

Sorry for the delay getting back to you...

I've heard via Killing Ifrit's NIN board that you can no longer use the same strategy to solo the NIN Fomor. In a recent update they changed the placement of mobs in the Aqueducts, and in doing so they added another Fomor to the room you kite. Basically kills the ability to do this anymore :(

Hope you are able to get this thread to replace the old one, which I got too lazy and no time to update (sorry to all the other NIN's and readers out there, my apologies).

If a mod is to read this, I would like for them to take down the thread I started and have this one in place of it.

I'll see if I can find something that's written up well. I tried to go through each former thread and grab those useful ones, but it's very possible with so many that I missed a few.

Honestly, there's some stuff I wanted to add here anyways, so I'll do that soon :)

ENMs and the Frugal Ninja

Just a little thing I wrote about a way to save yourself money while leveling NIN. It's still very valid, however the original static I was a part of when I wrote the post has since disolved (did last nearly 9 months, however).

I think it's some useful advice, but then again, I would since it saved me so much :-)
