Spell Interruption rate @100% w/o Aquaveil?Follow

#1 Aug 28 2010 at 9:26 PM Rating: Good
I'm not sure if this has to do with the Aquaveil buff but it seems that spell interruption rate now has a 100% proc rate. Seriously SE you need to address this problem. It's a severe hindrance in mage jobs when trying to cast spells (especially Blu.) I have died needlessly because a single hit that does miniscual damage has interrupted my spell casting.

That's what you get for sucking and not capping your blue magic skill then. Your skill in a spell affects your chances of interruption from mobs, along with their level. You won't get that many blocks to interruption if the mob cons T+ to you, but if its low EP or lower, your skill will be so high that they won't stop you that often.

So yeah, maybe learn to cap your magic skill? /shrug

I thought it used to be especially SMN. Considering a 30 damage hit used to interrupt my 300 skill 75 SMN.

Amount of damage you get hit for doesn't matter (unless it's zero, in which case it won't interrupt)

You see this reply as a tiny problem.. My blue magic skill is already capped retard. And I also have a merit in blue magic skill so your troll post is fail.

Maybe you should've mentioned it was capped in the first post then. The fact that you didn't suggests you don't even know how spell interrupt works, so I gave the advice that was most likely the problem. But seriously, interrupt rate has always been like that, even EP mobs will stop your casting quite a bit. The only thing it works well against is mobs that are too weak really, though it does occasionally kick in even on mobs up to T against you from my experiences with soloing my ninja sub. It can kick in even higher than that I think, but the chance for it to do so is quite minuscule. And even against too weak mobs, it's not 100% prevention. I've had my blu mage with 4 magic merits at 75 and capped skill get my spells interrupted constantly by a train of monsters in buburimu peninsula, simply because there were a crapload of monsters hitting me at the same time, so some of them would occasionally succeed in stopping my casting.

In fact, I even died because of this once, cause I was low on HP and magic fruit got stopped several times in a row, and I wasn't able to draw my sword out and circle blade them to death due to all the attack animations going off. orz

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.

Actually I believe it was stated by SE that it does lower interruption rate. (They just never said it would be randomly with 90% chance it will interrupt)

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.

Cast a spell with -101% interrupt, with 0 skill and see how often you get resisted. Repeat with 300 skill. You'd get interrupted probably around 50% of the time with 0 skill, and no more than 5% or so with 300 skill.
