i have a screenshot of an aura statue hitting me for 1dmg(breaking stoneskin) and interrupting my BLM, skill effecting interruption rate is a myth.
They're level 81-84 mobs. Stuff higher level than you is usually going to interrupt you period unless you either get lucky or are using a -102% interrupt build (or using Aquaveil, now), particularly if you were still just level 75 and they were still in IT range.
Skill does matter. Try fighting Easy Preys as WAR/NIN and try letting them hit you while you are casting Utsusemi, they will still interrupt you almost every time. Now try doing the same thing as NIN main (with updated skill to match). Not taking into account the fact that you're going to evade hits a lot better, interrupts when they DO hit you will still be much less frequent (but always still possible, unless you've got the -102% interrupt build or unless Aquaveil prevents it). You can see this same sort of thing using any other spellcasting sub and main (except for BRD); ninjutsu is just one of the more prominent examples. Edited, Sep 1st 2010 8:32pm by Fynlar
