Love the guide, very time intensive I imagine. lol

I am curious if anyone has ever found Carbonara as a viable food option? Think it wasnt regularly available on AH, and tended to be somewhat expensive.

Hello everyone.

I'm real sorry it has been a while since I last updated alot of this stuff. I'm actually surprised how many more people replied to the thread as well.

...Way to true.

I'll fix the Relic info, that someone posted here.

This weekend I am going to view the guide some more, and fix errors I find, and also I may add in some more links.

I need to possible re-word myself in some parts as well, as Rosser has mentioned.

Thank you all for the great feedback as well ^^

Did some minor updating today.

Fixed Relic info.
Added a Sam/Rng video.
Fixed some subjob information.
Re-worded some Race information.

Reconstructed a section. It is now Samurai Skillchain/Macro Techniques.

I added in some information there, and added some useful Macros for others to learn about.

Again, Thank you all for the great feedback.

A last shameful /Bump by me.

I only want to help others, so maybe it will being on the first page once again.

Honestly though... the Sticky, Samurai 101... was last updated in 2004. About 2 YEARS ago.

I just want to know if I should stop working completely on this Guide or not.

I would love to add your SC dmg Table to this Guide.

Due to the recent update on... 4/19?, The Store TP Chart will need some minor changes as well.

In the next few days, I will be most likely changing some of the setup, as well as adding some more stuff.

For the most part, a very good guide.

However your food section needs an overhaul. The suggested level ranges for food use are way off, considering the ATT caps on the food, and how much your att actually is at a certain level.
In fact, in some cases you'll get lower +att from using the next tier food, simply because the % increase is lower, and your base attack isn't high enough that it would in any way improve it.

And Sushi 30+? 45+ would be the earliest time sushi becomes a viable option over standard attack food or dumplings. The accuracy gear you get access to is more than enough to hit the mob. And mob def is more of an issue in those levels than mob evasion is.

Don't mean to sound like a jerk, but you should take a look at the math concerning those things =\

Ok Mach. The food section really could use some overhauling. Yea.... and for the cap stuff, and level ranges for them... I did it very quickly, and I apologize. I will be sure to work on it though.

I put Sushi then.... because it offers the "most accuracy" at the time. I simply put it there for completeness. Also note, theres Attack foods listed at the same levels also. I did this, with intentions of people using the foods part of the Guide, as more of a reference to stats and such.

You arent a jerk. We all have ideas and opinions. I am glad you replied to the thread. Now, I know what exactly I should work on. I thank you for the criticism.

Editing and additions to the Guide lately.... have been few, and I apologize. Finals are about 2 weeks away, and I have been extremely busy. I am trying to work on this Guide, and my Summoner Forum Sticky as well, and it just takes alot of time.

Please bare with me the next few weeks.... for my lack of free time for this. It will be worked on as soon as I have the time available.

Oh wow... people have been bumping my Guide?

If you guys really want it Stickied, then someone has to post in that Forum with all the Mods/Admins in it. Couple people chyme in I suppose, and BAM!, a new Sticky has been born.

Since you guys keep on bumping this thing, I suppose I really should try and work on small things in it, such as the Foods, and maybe some more Links I suppose.

Thanks guys

http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/forum.html?forum=3;mid=115536816812378330;num=0;page=1
I do this mainly because the old SAM 101 has not be updated recently, and the information here is more through and better formatted. Of course there is room for improvement in the guide, but it is a great start.

[Um...]

My galka is a lvl 24 sam/rng and he has Zanshin... And you have it listed as lvl 60.

I dont know if its from an update but Zanshin is a lvl 20 job trait.

Other than that, awsome guide!

Update: Fixed spelling cause i suck.

#87 Oct 24 2007 at 8:47 AM Rating: Decent
I came to this place to find out where all the samaurai that I have pt with are getting their information. I now see where.

This is a very good guide and very easy to read. However, it, like others, places emphasis on the warrior subjob.

I am a paladin, and have no desire really to level samurai, but post 60 it seems there will never be a party that does not have at least one in it. Especially since the update to two-handed weapons that has made samurai even more powerful than they already were.

What I would like to point out, is that a samurai spamming WS and berserk from the warrior sub, can and WILL take hate from even a paladin with every slot filled to the brim with enm+. I have over 30 points of added enm with all the gear that I farmed long and hard for, and yet I still find myself forced to cover a berserk-happy sam that can dish it, but of course can't take it.

This is multiplied even more when they wear the pieces of AF that give tp, but strangely enough, also give enm+.

The enm+ on a sam's AF leads me to conclude only that this class, though used as DD, was meant as tank. But since sams will rarely, if ever, be USED as tank, it's very important for a successful party that they do not take hate FROM the tank.

Upon reading this guide, though I see that you did mention that its important to take the party's needs into account, it still talks up warrior as a sub greatly, and thf as a sub not so much. Even that it is listed first makes me think that this is the decided sub of choice for a sam.

I like the sam class and I think that the damage that you do is magnificent. But a paladin, who has access to the most and best enm+ gear in the game, should NEVER have to cover a sam. It has gotten to the point where I seriously will not even join a party unless the sams in it sub thief. The best parties that I have been in were with sam/thf who would trick off me with a tachi:gekko and then sneak a few moments later with the same. Hate was never bounced, and they still were able to outparse everyone else in the party.

And I'm sure that's what all of you are mainly concerned with anyway.

There simply is not enough enm gear in the game available to keep hate from a sam using berserk post 60. And don't forget that berserk enhances attacks, but LOWERS defense as well. So when you take hate from me and my ninja cousins, you are in serious trouble. ESPECIALLY if you are pt with one of my ninja cousins, because they cannot cover you. There are classes in the game with NATURAL abilities that require a paladin's cover, such as our sisters in darkness who have Souleater. A paladin should never have to cover you because you are using an ability from a subjob.

So please, all of you sams out there who will not tank, cut your parties a break and level thf to 37. It make's everyone's xp much faster.



It's funny. When I first started paladin my biggest fear was 'will we have a good enough mage that I will live to see the next battle?"

Now, when I get a pt invite, my biggest fear and first question is, how many sam/WAR do you have? Because I am no longer the one in any danger of dying.

Red Values are NOT achievable, even with maxed merits/ALL Store TP gear/Food all on.
Thanks and credit to Shanock, for the Chart.

Due to the recent TP adjustment update, this Chart will undergo a few minor changes.


main:	Futsuno Mitama 		(8) 
range:	none?			(0) 
head:	Hachiman Hakama +1 	(4) 
neck:	chiv chain		(1) 
ear1:	brutal			(1)

5 store tp merits			(10) 
total: +68 store tp 
food: ambrosia			(7) 
total: 68+7 = 75+25 = 100 


this should give 26 tp per hit, and still not the most you can get

sam roll of 11 is +23 store tp = 123 total

28.99 tp per hit, still onry 4 hit build. but you could get a 5 hit build with any other delays (that you listed), and a 4 hit build for anything with 460+ delay, even without the 8 on Futsuno Mitama. or a 3 hit build with relic GK lol.


kinda pointless, but i was bored >:O

max COR SAM roll is +50sTP, so with a full sTP build, food, and COR you could theoretically reach any value on this chart except the 399 4hit, but you're still a few shy of being able to get a 3 with with anything but Ito (999 delay).
