So I am giving a look at my (future) wildfire gear as I am getting closer to completing the WOE gun for grinsies. The gear I pretty much have down at this point. The question I am pondering now which atmas to use for a wildfire build as Rng.

The ones that jump out at me are:

Smoldering Sky: Attack+ Minor, Magic Critical Hit Rate+ Major, Fire Attack + Major
Burning Effigy: STR+ Minor, FireWeapon Skill Damage+ Major, Gain full benefit of Firesday/fire weather bonuses
Lone Wolf: Attack+ Minor, Fire Magic Attack+ Major
Ultimate: MAB superior, MACC Superior, -25%mp
Gnarled Horn: Agi superior(50), Crit rate major(20%), counter

My biggest question is what does Burning effigy do exactly? I dont know how much damage 'Fire weapon skill damage+ Major' is. Does anyone know? Also how much is 'Fire attack major' anyway?

I am not sure which 3 would be the best. Cant decide between only 3 of Ultimate, Smoldering sky, Gnarled horn and Effigy.

Anyone know the actual potency values on Fire WS+ major and Fire attack major?

Burning Effigy won't do anything for Wildfire because it's not in the right part of the skillchain chart. Despite being fire elemental damage Wildfire is actually a Darkness based weaponskill for the purposes of skillchains and gorgets/belts.

Your best bet would probably be Ultimate + Smoldering + Wolf.

Adjust the resolution of menus.
The main screen resolution for "FINAL FANTASY XI" is dependent on the "Overlay Graphics Resolution" setting.
If the Overlay Graphics Resolution is set higher than the Menu Resolution, menus will be automatically resized.


I thought of it first:

Oh thats unintuitive. I figured it would be the damage type not the skillchain type. Odd. Well that narrows it down a lot. I dont actually have smoldering sky yet, if i dont have it before i get wildfire then theres not much choice for me with only 3 decent ones available. Thanks for clearing that up.
