Finally Got Dispel, Now For PhalanxFollow

In my quest to be the best RDM I can possibly be, I finally got my scroll of Dispel today. Got it for 90,000 gil in the Bastok AH. Only one they had too. Now it's back out there to farm more for the dreaded Phalanx scroll. Ungh...I hate doing this. I just want to progress more in the story. I hate having to stop to do things like this. It's so frustrating.

I'm debating whether or not I should tell you that Dispel sells from a vendor in Rabao or a vendor in Windurst for at most 75k, and as low as 68k or so depending on fame.

I'm thinking I probably shouldn't.

I feel your pain. XD

I just bought dispel a few weeks ago from the Jeuno AH for 69k. I got lucky, I know. I don't think I can complain too much though...I've heard the WHM spell Erase is MUCH more expensive...like 340k or so. As for phalanx, I figure since it is much more of a solo spell I will hold off for now.

Good luck with the farming and whatnot, though. Send me a /tell in game some time, I love talking to fellow RDM's, especially those that are around my level.

Sure, next time I'm on I'll send ya a tell. I feel pretty stupid now. I had no idea it was sold by a vendor. Ah well. It's too late now.

I plan on doing a lot of soloing when I get Phalanx. I gotta build up my enhancing skills first though.

Yeah, I can buy it in Rabao for ~65k. When I bought it, it was for 70 in Jeuno. I'm not worrying about Phalanx for a while, it's a late-blooming spell

Dispel? Good for u! U cant call urself rdm without that spell nor w/o Refresh
Phalanx, dont waste ur money . Stoneskin is way much better than Phalanx. The truth, Phalanx is just a spell so u can call urself a full-fledged RED MAGE. Trust me i occasionally use that spell and beside it wears off so fast.

And just in case ur wondering ... yes, im a rdm (Main).
but u wont see me as Lambchops.

I wouldn't worry too much about this. From what I hear, once a RDM gets into refresh levels, their enhancing skills will pretty much cap pretty easily.

Do yourself a favor and skip Phalanx until you have too much gil and nothing else to spend it on. It does help a bit w/ stoneskin but doesn't last long enough to be truely useful. Stoneskin is more than enough in most situations.

Later in the game, you might find yourself wanting this spell to solo NM's and skill ups, etc. Until then, save your gil and spend them it on something more useful.
