Astral Flow Blood pact not activatingFollow

Not sure if this is a common thing or not, but it seems that when i activate astral flow and use the avatars 2hr ability, it will occasionally (25%) not activate but the blood pact timer will reset and i will lose one attack from astral flow. Am i doing something wrong to cause this? I have made sure that I stay still and stay next to the mob until the avatar successfully 2 hours. However, it still happens about 25% of the time.

You have to have MP equal to your level x2 in order to land the BP.

If you are level 10, you need 20MP by the time the BP is unleashed.

If you are level 75, you need 150MP.

With that in mind, if your BP targets a mob that dies between activation and execution, you'll also get the stall out error.

But most likely, you're not watching your MP levels.

If you're not getting a out of range error (which shouldn't be a big problem anymore, they fixed it so that OOR causes the BP timer to be reset right?), the most likely cause is not enough MP. Astral Flow BPs do not have a set MP cost (they actually consume all your MP no matter how much you have), but need MP equivalent to twice your level in order to be used, or else they will just fizzle out and not actually fire.

For instance, a level 11 SMN would need 22 MP to be able to fire an Astral BP.

Remember that even though perp cost drops to zero while Astral Flow is active, MP costs for actually summoning the avatar still apply.

The lack of MP is the issue. im 29 atm. Had been thinking only of when i did the mini-fights and only needed 40mp. So it makes sense now. Thanks.
