Is it just me or is it filled with trolls/nincompoops?
Other than those of course who post here as well.

Every time I go to the forum I feel like either all of us have been doing pup wrong all these years, and these abyssea burners are doing it right (joke), or I feel like these other PUP's don't want to learn to play the job right from those who know it best.

Official PUP<Insert any job> forum?


The official forums blow, regardless of job. Horrible design, horrible moderating, etc.; just not a good experience imo. Again imo, but its only saving grace is the fact that info from the devs hits there first and with surprising frequency. And really, SE could have just picked a Prem. site like Alla and worked out a bulletin board sub-forum or something to quickly disseminate news.

I read the official forums for 2 reasons:

1: they're ******* hysterical. They've got all of the drama of Alla's =10, BG, lolffxiah, and lolffxiwiki forums, and yet still maintain some semblance of intelligence (something very hard to come by on ah/wiki forums at all, and very difficult to find while maintaining delicious drama on alla/bg).

2: Doing damage control, to make sure the devs don't blindly listen to the rambling of retards (go read some of xioxen's posts. they're hilarious.) without someone pointing out the glaringly obvious flaws. Sadly, this second reason doesn't seem to be needed though, because the devs only read/care about the JP forums.

Some dude on the Pup forums said that Footwork was awesome. I was going to respond to it but then I suddenly got really tired and just kind of laid down for a while.

It's a whole bunch of random crap.

A lot of threads on different forums are just random broken suggestion after another. Maybe toss in one or two good suggestions, though they're kind of few. And then they get repeated about every other post (how many times have you seen give RDM and SCH Cure V?)

Although, I have to say that certain job forums (e.g. Thief) are just as whiny there as they are here...
I was reading the bully thread and I thought a bunch of people had their caps lock on and just kept typing the letter Q

Oh wow. I just read through that SS/RR/Apoc thread...

You guys oughta just stop talking to him. He's on some campaign of misinformation and hiding behind this lame shield tolerance with his "You have your opinion and I'm sorry you feel that way, try it yourself." Which'd hold water if not for the fact that he's actually disseminating his dullardry among people looking for help.

You need to talk around him, not to him, which is what he seems to be doing with a lot of what everyone is saying to him (selective reading/replying). It's the only way to help the person he's molesting with nonsense.

His entire argument seems to be "I can only say what I've seen, your math doesn't prove anything because it's not math because numbers are theoretical, I have practical eyeballs." Dustin said he was like a religious zealot but I think that's wrong. He's more like some Renaissance farmhand arguing for a geocentric model against Albert Einstein.

"THEORETICAL physics? Ain't can farm puhtaters with theory."

I do not, but i have tested them ALL on the test server.

Next question?

And unless it starts with "based on my findings, animator x does y differently compared to animator x+1" I really dont want to hear any of the useless garbage that comes out of your mouth.

"Omg you can tell the difference if you try it" doesn't cut it, and I am sick to my eyeballs with your bs posts with no accurate, testable, or verifiable information. If you want me to test something fine, let me know exactly what it is. I have tried on 8+ different occasions to get you to list anything even resembling proof and as of yet its been zipo.

Don't flatter yourself. It takes someone with a lot more intelligence, talent, and wit to even remotely annoy me. You're kind of like a little gnat, buzzing around my ear.

Edit:

By the way, I'm still waiting for your reply as to my request for information so that I can prove that my math is accurate within your strict guidelines of what is and is not "fudged formulas" or "assumptions".

You will never get it, he even hid his items sets on FFXIAH so you can no longer see his pup tp/ws sets. Which might be good because last time i saw it he was using ethereal earring and the DA magian weapon with no +2 head piece.

New equipment goals for me, since hes a career pup and I am not, must mean I am doing it wrong.

Also I like how according to ffxiah he didnt have Deluxe or animator +1 back when he was claiming there was a difference and you could tell it... So much troll, so little to feed it.

Yes, I use an ethereal earring, as well as a kemas...both are situational...in addition to the brutal... The DA magian weapon <yes, it is my weapon of choice>, +2 version with Dbl Attck +10... "No +2 head piece"? I use the Anwig for weapon skill, which gives +15 weapon skill accuracy... I currently do not have the AF3+2 head piece...

Yes, I am a career pup... Wouldn't spend so much time collecting and acquiring the necessary equipment items if I wasn't... I'm uncertain whether you are or are not and I'm not sure if you are "doing it wrong"... I think you'd know that better than me.

Well unlike some folks--I actually "do have all of the animators the game currently offers..."; I don't have to use the test server for that purpose... >.>


Edited, Sep 14th 2011 10:45am by Xiozen
Ignoring deluxe animator because I don't do Voidwatch, I have all the animators too. I've done your proposed "testing" with animator/turbo/+1. There's no @#%^ing difference. Also, not having animator +1 doesn't make someone a bad pup. It just means they don't do einherjar (an event that pup is not an ideal job for to begin with). Also, seriously, why did you waste your time getting the double attack magians? You could have easily gotten Verethragna or at least Revenant fists in the same time with the same effort, and you better not even attempt to argue that double attack fists are better than those.

edit: Since when is brutal ******* situational? The only job that melees for TP that can say brutal is "situational" is monk, because in situations where you're using Asuran fists as your primary WS, yes, brutal isn't worth using because you can't proc double attack on asuran fists. Brutal is hands down one of the best melee DD earrings in the game. I really hope I misread that statement. Oh, and there's no scenario where kemas won't beat ethereal for pup, when it comes to damage. Ethereal's no different offensively than a 10k coral earring. I'm not saying Ethereal's useless, I plan on getting one whenever I get around to doing AN, but it's not something you should wear for TP unless you're soloing something and need the evasion/mp conversion.

As far as earring combos go, Brutal+Moonshade (acc+4/regain) is #1, Either of those + Kemas is #2, Substitute Hollow Earring for Kemas and you get #2 1/2, because Kemas is better 90% of the time, but only by a negligible amount. Kemas+Hollow is #3, after that, Merman's Earrings (atk+6) or the like.

So lets get this striaght:
1) You use ethereal earring as a pup
2) You use DA magian (dbl atk +10)
3) You use Anwig for ws, and (+1 head for tp I assume?)

Personally that doesnt sound like a career pup at all to me...
1) A career pup would use burts, rev fists, or verethragna (maybe kenkonken if they are lucky), any of which will out DD that weapon. A career pup who chooses not to be the best dd they can be is an I'm a moron.

2) There are so many better earrings then etheral, so i am not sure why you are bragging about spending time to collect this. Moonshade is better (4 atk +1 regain) as an example. Its not bad for an eva piece, but not a full time/tp piece. If you have an animator +1 get an aesir earring or work on wings of the goddess and get moonshade.

3) +1 head? really. Go spend 1 hour and get the +2. You have the +2 for almost every other piece. The head adds acc, atk, and +base dmg (depending on h2h skill), as well as more haste (which i dont even know if your capped at based on what i remember of your tp set) and more double attack.

4) The point of the animators was this: You bragged for months about how you could tell the difference, and this was before you even had either... So again big fat phony. And grats on having +4 more dex than me in your range slot?

Dont brag about spending time collecting items when the ones you've collected aren't even that good or hard to get. Or worse, when you dont even have the items you said you've collected at the time.

So left up to you--everyone would have the same gear, use the same weapon and play the same way? Cookie-cutter much?

"Personally that doesnt sound like a career pup at all to me..."

Everyone's entitled to their opinion.

dustin, gear =/= career pup. Gear =/= career any job. You can have amazing gear and still no **** all about your job (ie: most members of heavy endgame shells). I've only got +1 head/hands/feet, +2 legs, and no burts/vereth/rev/ken/fire taipan (though that's because I always manage to log on right after firesday ends, or have to log off right before it starts. Always.)/etc. I'd like to see you try and justify that I'm not a career pup just because I don't have OMFGAMAZING gear Smiley: dubious

Ignoring deluxe animator because I don't do Voidwatch, I have all the animators too. I've done your proposed "testing" with animator/turbo/+1. There's no @#%^ing difference. Also, not having animator +1 doesn't make someone a bad pup. It just means they don't do einherjar (an event that pup is not an ideal job for to begin with). Also, seriously, why did you waste your time getting the double attack magians? You could have easily gotten Verethragna or at least Revenant fists in the same time with the same effort, and you better not even attempt to argue that double attack fists are better than those.

edit: Since when is brutal @#%^ing situational? The only job that melees for TP that can say brutal is "situational" is monk, because in situations where you're using Asuran fists as your primary WS, yes, brutal isn't worth using because you can't proc double attack on asuran fists. Brutal is hands down one of the best melee DD earrings in the game. I really hope I misread that statement. Oh, and there's no scenario where kemas won't beat ethereal for pup, when it comes to damage. Ethereal's no different offensively than a 10k coral earring. I'm not saying Ethereal's useless, I plan on getting one whenever I get around to doing AN, but it's not something you should wear for TP unless you're soloing something and need the evasion/mp conversion.

As far as earring combos go, Brutal+Moonshade (acc+4/regain) is #1, Either of those + Kemas is #2, Substitute Hollow Earring for Kemas and you get #2 1/2, because Kemas is better 90% of the time, but only by a negligible amount. Kemas+Hollow is #3, after that, Merman's Earrings (atk+6) or the like.

You're posting lies and fallacies and claiming them as truths in my home pup forum. Like **** I'm gonna stay quiet about that.

yea, I'm debating whether he's just a talented troll, or really, really stupid. I'm honestly leaning towards the former, which is why I've been bantering with him, but I'm not ruling out the chances of both.


Have I touched a nerve?

Don't flatter yourself. It takes someone with a lot more intelligence, talent, and wit to even remotely annoy me. You're kind of like a little gnat, buzzing around my ear.

Edit:

By the way, I'm still waiting for your reply as to my request for information so that I can prove that my math is accurate within your strict guidelines of what is and is not "fudged formulas" or "assumptions".

was directed at you and has yet to garner a response. I'm waiting.

Except if it were baby photos, it would be like looking at before and afters of Michael Jackson. Only instead of turning into a white guy, he changes into a chick!
