Migawari: Ichi NIN Lv.88
*Uses the ninja tool, "mokujin."

better be **** good since NIN got the shaft again with no new JA JTs


Migawari translates roughly to "substitute (for) or sacrifice (of)"

Probably lowers the target's accuracy(by making a substitute of yourself that the enemy focuses on). I think Mokujin is a straw or wooden training dummy, and if you've ever seen Ninja flicks of a ninja getting slashed and he's replaced by a log or a decoy, that's a mokujin I think. It's probably Accuracy Down, but it could be flash too.

I am hoping it is a stoneskin spell to counter any "aga" spells and other moves that ignore/wipe our shadows.

Also with the recent push for Ninjutsu, maybe we will gain three "sacrifice" counters to increase ninjutsu damage. Each counter would a use a certain amount of HP.

Accuracy down would be nice, essential an evasion boost. I am hoping for Stoneskin as well though. Someone on another thread predicted it will be like Sentinel's Scherzo, which would be pretty fail IMO. Either way I hope the duration is long. I don't want to have to put up Stoneskin every 2 minutes when it basically only gets eaten if I mess up shadows.

It couldn't be stoneskin because it's an Earth Elemental spell that targets enemies.

Earth>Thunder
Earth=Vitality, defense
Thunder=Dexterity, accuracy

Rasp= DEX Down
Sandspin=Accuracy Down

Therefore one must conclude the 'Accuracy Down' debuff is Earth based. So there's a pretty high chance it'll be an 'Accuracy Down' Ninjutsu, which should replace Kurayami. Since Kurayami is -30, then this new Ninjutsu must be super strong, perhaps an Earth Based Flash(would be ideal since NIN already have a Blind ninjutsu).


1)Flash(Mega accuracy down for a short period of time+high enmity)**Most likely

2)A more potent Kurayami(kind of redundant...because they could always just make Kurayami San, also Blind=Accuracy down, there's no other penalty that Blind provides as far as I know. Unless Blind= Accuracy/R.Acc down and Acc Down applies only to melee. I can't think of any other reason why there are two different statuses for the same effect.

If it's flash it better not be friggin' 4 second ichi casting time, that would be epic fail.

Appears to be an earth-based debuff, so not flash.

Knowin SE it'll probably be stun, flash (4sec cast time) or refresh. I really like the idea of stoneskin or some other form of -aga protection. PDT, petrify, silence, reflect or anything that would be remotely useful is a pipedream. SE has yet to address the 2hr issue for nin maybe its a reraise. not holdin my breath. i am however confident this will be another in a long line of /slaps to the face.


as for my wishlist, a clone to sit and take damage while simoutaneously teleporting me behind the mob for innin strikes would be hella fun.

I suspect it'll either be a DEX-down spell, (lower crit-rate and acc) or a short duration petrify (I wish). Most likely it'll be something meh, but on the other hand who expected MNK to get such a *potentially* significant boost as Impetus at this stage of the game...

I'd absolutely love it to be silence (silent like a training dummy... no...stop it) because as a soloist /DNC it would plug a big hole in my defensive ********

Technically blind can stop Grim Glower on peistes and accuracy down does not... But blind and accuracy down are similar to Box Step and Defense Down. Same effect pretty much, but they stack. It is kind of redundant but the fact that they stack is what makes it nice. Kind of like Quick Step and evasion down too... Delicious.
