I'm not commenting on anything else because I only solo NIN to break Trial weapons, skill up, or ... yea I can't think of anything else... [edit: I will comment, /DNC is superior if only for a way to Silena yourself] but I have to say:
Turning an 8 minute fight into a 10 minute fight adds up to real time lost, more tools used, less seals per hour, etc.
Why in gods name would you solo a seal mob? You can't proc ANYTHING. Wow, 3 possible NIN spells, 3 possible /WHM spells. You won't be getting any "seals per hour."
Besides that huge waste of time and stones,not only do you have a dismal chance to proc, but you are taking 8 to 10 to whatever minutes to kill the damn thing. Just find a friend WHM or RDM [or better yet a WHM/BRD, BLU, and BLM] and stop this nonsense. We killed an NM 5 times today, that a duo took the same amount of time to kill once. You are not helping anyone by soloing a mob and taking forever. You are wasting other people's time, as well as your own. Edited, Feb 11th 2011 5:46am by Palides
