Is Heavy Strike a critical hit or is it chance of crit with CA? Asking because if its just an incredibly strong single it attack, when you could stack it with SA for some really crazy damage. Basically a replacement for VC / BT. Otherwise its just ~ok~.
According to testing on FFXIAH, Heavy Strike is a guaranteed critical hit with a 2.25fTP and 75% str mod, basically making it a juiced up version of true strike. And has a Fragmentation SC property.
Also, Sudden Lunge has a longer recast, but apparently it has a stupidly long stun duration, with some people saying that at ~50% fast cast (6~7 second recast), they would get stuns that lasted longer than the recast of the spell. Also, it doesn't reduce your HP like it does for mobs.
Thunderbolt deals less damage than charged whisker, but also comes with it's usual absurdly long stun (10~12 sec). And it has a 3.5 sec cast time, so basically lol.
Harden Shell is a 90 second duration, so it's sort of like Cocoon on roids. Also you can diffusion it.
Barrier Tusk is currently -15% DT that applies separately after normal PDT/MDT, rather than actual phalanx.
White Wind heals an amount based on your MAX hp, and is not affected by mnd (cure potency still applies, though). I think the formula was (3(max HP)/5), but I'm not 100% on that
Mortal Ray is basically a new 1000 Needles; very low macc, 60 second doom clock, and it wears off if wander to far from what you cast it on
Water bomb's silence lasts ~60 seconds, but idr what the damage was listed as.
Dark Orb is just a generic single target dark elemental nuke.
I'd link to the thread where I read all this, but I can't remember which one it as and I cba to go find it. Basically though, blue got a bunch of fun new toys, as well as a @#%^ing bazooka (heavy strike hits hard
, but is totally unaffected by Sneak Attack).
Could someone tell us how many set points we get now. Did they give us anything extra or is it just the standard 5 points?
bonus +5 at 95, for a total of 60.
edit: I don't normally pay attention to him, but is that kimjongil guy really that stupid? if so, I need to read the blu forum more, because I haven't laughed so hard at someone on alla in a long time Edited, Aug 31st 2011 10:41pm by Jinte
