I'm trying to see if this will have any positive impact on a soloing SMN.
I guess it depends on if a weakened Diabolos > Carby for kiting, seeing how you can get MP back with Diabolos now.
Other than that, meh.
Sadly, it's not going to work how you may think it will work.
Although, I cant figure out how you think it will work.
Carby kiteing works not only because Carby is free. It works because you can run far enough away so that;
A. You dont get hit while trying to re-summon
B. When you re-summon (far enough away) you dont get any Enmity.
Trying to do this with Diabolos you would need to be standing next to him in order to get refresh. Which would leave you open to AoE attacks as well.
If Diabolos was a lot (significantly) stronger then Carbuncle it could work. Stand near him, hopefully right at the end of the 10' so you could avoid AoE. Then when Diabolos is 15~20% run as fast/far as you can so that you can Re-summon without hate and interuptions.
