Does anybody know if it has the same affect in Ballista that a Warrior's provoke has?

Yes it does! Its probably my most used Flourish in 60 cap. Provoke really saves lives in PvP.

Provoke that WHM people are chasing down and no more cures.

See that DRK looking to one shot your taru blm? Voke him too! Stay out of his melee range and he'll be easy picking.


I could really just keep going about this Flourish...it truly is my favorite.

God I love animated flourish....


Edit:
Could you possibly tell me what strategies you use as DNC? Send it in a message if you're worried about people knowing it, I wouldn't mind sharing tactics. I don't see many DNC in ballista so I'm trying new things as it.

I would throw the usefulness of Desperate Flourish in there for Ballista too, to decrease the opponent's movement speed. Animated Flourish takes away 2 finishing moves while Desperate takes 1, so do Desperate first then Animated whenever. Smiley: grin

Obviously desperate flourish is great. I did speak about how important Gravity is in another thread =p

But so far Violent flourish is used more since I usually already have a mage Graving everyone.

How long does Animated Flourish's effect last in Ballista?

From what I've noticed it's random but no where near as long as a WAR provoke. I'm a bit too busy to really pay attention to HOW long it lasts but it lands as much as a WAR main provoke does.

i'm not a dnc, but i can attest to the usefulness of provoke. warrior provoke is awesome because its practically 100% accurate. when you /war and voke, it doesnt land as often, but when it does its very effective. if animated flourish had a 100% chance that it can land, then by far its most effective move a dnc can do... a well timed provoke can ruin lives ^^

i personally like when dnc use the 'stun' flourish (cant remember the name).. and gravity is ok also.
