You know, it's something I always wanted to try but never got around to it. I'd love to get into a LS set up for Ballista. Maybe you could do a primer course for all the people who have never done it? Or, heck, post a link lol.

Same here, haven't done it yet but always wanted to try it. Just don't have the time to play since I spend most of my time farming, raising my alchemy or helping others. (Notice lvling wasn't in there...which is why I would only be able to do a 30). Next time I see a match for 30 I'll probally be going for ***** and giggles, don't know how to play but the only way to learn is to jump in and do it.

Ballista is a lot of fun, I highly suggest you find a group of friends and try it.

Personally though I'd rather play a small match of ballista than one that has too many people. As a mage I find as soon as I cast a spell on one person I'm being shot from behind, I don't like the chaos.

It's worth your time to organize a ballista match though. Ballista is like basketball, only you have to stab people to score, what could be more fun?

BOoooooo!!! Only like... 3 people like basketball... that's it, those people you see on tv are digitally created, there is no such thing as a basket ball fan!!!!111111oneomgwtfbbq...



All jokes aside, I still don't have my ballista license lol, I have been to sandoria and bastok MANY times, I have 0 clue of where I have to go to finish this **** quest, but then again, even if I had the license I still wouldn't have the time to play.

Yea me either, well im not gonna bother anymore on obtaining the license.


I know once i get it, its over for the other players, i dont want to take away the fun from other ppl..cuz we all know who will win ballista if im in it. :p nah im kidding.


But yea i still dont have my license, but i hear that matches are constantly being cancelled so why bother obtaining license if no one is gonna show.

I think everyone thinking like this is why they constantly get cancelled :)

There are people on siren who consistently do 60 cap. Often it's best to bring your own group for ballista because you never know if others will show, but isn't ballista more fun among friends?

That's interesting Montijin, I might be interested. I'd be wonering what levels you have for it though, because I myself mostly prefer 60 cap.

A friend of mine is in a LS that I believe is a ballista ls (he didn't make it real clear) called FivePRM, so I'm also looking into joining an ls.

Is it just me or do we need a ballista forum? That would be extremely helpful I think, especially for discussion of strategy, too often do I see my team mates baited and led to the slaughter.

Im from Titan, but I hope this may eventually help Ballista to become more successful on all servers.

BTW: On my server a couple of friends and myself commandeered the Ballista world on Titan by making a Ballista LS, BallistaUprising, and recruiting often in Jeuno, helping players get their license, and inviting everyone who participated in Ballista. We grew quickly into a decent size LS and no longer have problems with cancellations ^^ anyways, onto what I came to post about:

I just started a new site relating to all things FF. Although, it is mainly centered around Ballista. I'm hoping that this will become somewhat of a hub for Ballista participants of all servers. Right now only the Forum is working. Please register and make a post or two to help me get the site up and running. Thank you ^^

Site: http://www.Vang.cjb.net
Forums: either link from the site or direct link from http://www.Vangforums.cjb.net

Also, check out this thread which partains to recieving a license and some newbie guides:

Sorry for the long post ^^; Hope something here can help. Good luck!
