ok ok ok ... let me get this straight... 1 double attack is 2 swings per round right? So if AN attack could be 3 hits with a ridill AND you double attack does that open the possiblity of 6 swings in a round? and if that applies and you sub joy toy does that mean you could have 10 swings in a round? and if those apply and its not a joy but a krak could you get 22 swings in one round? What if you got a triple attack piece and its 33 swings in one round...

NOW. if you miss a round cuz yer still swinging from the prior round you end up not getten as many opportunities for the weapon to attack which in turn limits total attacks because you missed an round entirely. Wouldnt you rather have 2 attacks like joy toy so that you get fresh rounds on time with more opportunities to "Occassionally attack twice?" Is ridill better than kraken because of this?

Or is it all just about getten tp asap and unloading a SWORD or CLUB ws?? lol which means too weak in the first place doesnt it? im pretty sure a good war/thf with a Gaxe can deal out twice as much dmg as those ws in half the time. making them about the same. one being entirely possible for everyone and the other being VERY HARD for most to accomplish...

right ok its all clear now.



PS im not in school anymore and dont care about whats capitilized and where a period goes. so save yerself the replies... and while yer at it, save yer replys too cuz i wont be readin this again, just saw the crap on this item so far and had to add to it lol have a nice day

There is a cap on how many swing you can achieve per "round". I believe it is 14 max. Someone out there correct me if I am wrong on the exact number; but no, it is not possible for 22 swings/round.

The cap is 8. You will never swing more the 8 times in a round. And you cant get more then 3 hits in with a Ridill or 8 hits in with a KC. If you double attack with a Ridill or KC you will only attack twice. The double attack over rights the occassionlly attacks x amount of times.

Even if your still swinging when a new attack round starts, you still do the dmg and get the TP for the new attack round. you just dont see the anamation for it. trust me, i have a Ridill, i know how this stuff work. Gaxe war suck compared to Ridill wars only if the Ridill war knows how to make the Ridill do its job to its fullest posabilities.

Also, Vorpal Blade doesnt suck, I do 1k+ ws all the time with it, and trust me, you dont see gaxe wars doing 2k WS very often. If people tell you that, then they are lieing. I outparse Sams, and BB mnks pretty easy, and those jobs own Gaxe wars. so get your facts stright on how they work.

# Jun 15 2009 at 4:00 AM Rating: Decent
This may be necro bump but I felt it was a good time to elaborate on SE's decision on this. At the time Bluemage was released and enhanced SE was entrenched in an RMT war, added to this was the growing evidence (proof) that HNM shells were botting Fafhog and selling rare ex drops for profit or rmt purposes. SE felt that to limit rmt's hold on the game that bluemage be left off certain items dropped from HNM's choosing instead to equip Bluemage primarily through ToAU area's and quests. SE was unable to create an equal/better sword for fear of making HNM's which they felt were operating as intended though abused, into undesired content.

SE later unsuccessfully attempted to remedy their bumbling handling of that situation by adding Zeni NM's to the game, along with Einherjar. Neither of which has any items that surpass Ridill in ability or potential. Although these issues could clearly and easily be mopped up in one sweeping simple change SE chooses to ignore the problem not out of Sociopathia but out of the need to save face. They will not admit they are wrong until something becomes a public relations problem ie. the problem makes a major internet or real world publication and gains international attention.

Dude, look just above your post, it says it's dropped by Fafnir. Don't hold your breath though, I mean, no offence, but if you don't no where it comes from then you won't be getting one for a long time. Even myself, a MNK, knows the rarity of this item and the fierce competition for who gets the drop on the rare occurance you find it in the treasure pool. Well, good luck.

I was going over the weapons list, and realized just how overpowered this weapon is! So what kind of damage increase would this do for a WAR? 30%+ maybe? Something huge like that I would bet considering probably a doubled rate of WS's or so. You would think it would have signifigantly lower damag since it hits 2-3 damage (like kraken's club, and mercurial weapons) but it's 40 dmg is on par with other swords of equal level! SE usually balances everything out nicely, but I think Ridill is an exception.

Does it outparse relic weapons? Even with the massive crit damage capabilities of things like excalibur and guttler, I still think this would do better or at least on paper it sure looks that way (40 x 2-3 vs 50-55) O.O;

As you can tell i'm really jealous of you war/nin's that get this overpowered weapon, me being a mnk. I hear that nothing can beat a haste built ridill war's damage; i'd like to see one in action some day. Closest thing mnk gets to something like this would be faith baghnakhs, which are actually balanced - having a much lower base damage, only attacking up to 2x, and costing a crapload of virtue stones.

...Nerf Ridill! /flee

that would mean he gets 25 TP a hit. which even for samurai with all their store TP gear is impossible. unless you meant while using a ridill. in that case ur still an idiot because you cant dual wield a ridill and a scythe (2 handed weapon) and if you meant that they used ridill for TP gain then switched to scythe for WS your still an idiot because you lose TP switching weapons

Actually, he'd only have to get about 19% TP per hit, since his previous Guillotine would give him a full hit's worth of TP and 1% for each of the 3 addition hits in the WS (if they all connect). But yeah, even that amount of TP is probably impossible for a DRK (and probably a SAM too). 500 delay only gives about 13% TP, so with such a high delay weapon as a scythe you'd probably need more store TP gear than there is available in the game to get 19%. There's always the chance of double attacking, though.
