Your damage must suck as a melee RDM if you are wearing MP atmas, getting a BRD to give MP buffs and refresh gear. LOL. You are full of sh*t, I doubt you have even succeeded in soloing trash mobs for gold chests let alone anything of real value. Why don't you take the two useless points from slow II and put them in Bio III, and then tae 1 from dia and stick it there too. Wear DD atma's and have your BRD sing useful buffs.
Well obviously you know nothing about RDM melee solo. It's not about dealing damage, it's about outliving your opponent. I don't have MP atmaS
. Only one, the rest are usually defense related. With the proper haste build up, enspell, capped sword with full merits, you don't worry about attack, but defense to stay alive. Now, if the mob is so lol that dying is of really no concern, then by all means, go on the offense.
As I said, you're nothing but a troll.
FFXI is all about +1, so therefore those two merits for slow are not useless and the brd is not always casting ballad, mostly acc and atk. I merely stated that he can if there were a need for MP, just to show you that MP is not a problem.
Oh somebody getting upset. Although the same could easily be said about you. But then again one of us actually knows what they are talking about, and its not you.
Says the guy who told me to get DD atmas... LOL..
Wait, if you're wearing mage atmas in Abyssea then magic accuracy merits make even less sense. Meriting convert would at least make soloing NMs go faster with more liberal nuking capacity due to a better convert timer.
Read above. I AM NOT WEARING MP ATMAS
, I'm wearing ONE for refresh and I'm not soloing in Abyssea, only outside of Abyssea. Inside is duo with brd. I was never in need for convert nor would I ever convert tank/meleeing a mob. I know it can be done, because I have before and seen others do it, but it's just not worth the risk. If MP is starting to get low, I switch out to MP gear, get ballad and withold on spells like blind II until I'm back ready again.
No he's actually quite good at it, as he can turn it on and off, and focus it where he wants it; whereas you troll every single thread you post in with your alternate-reality FFXI advice whether it's your objective or not.
Also, he's proven himself capable of learning from others, something you seem unable to do; you'd rather just tell people they're 'full of trash' and gloat that you're 'ahead of the curve.'
Also, your merits suck, and if they're any indication of your playstyle, it explains much.
How is he good at it if he's arguing with the only person who agrees with him in a thread? He called me retarded for AGREEING WITH HIM.That's horrible trolling. On the other hand, I'm not trolling at all, I mainly just only partake in threads where I'm the opposition or else it isn't fun. The difference is, I'm not just making stuff up just to argue.
Gloating? I was told that I didn't know my information. I defended myself by demonstrating that the same thing was said about RDM melee and here we are today at a complete 180 on the opinion of RDM melee.
That's just ONE example.
My merits suck? The RDM merits in general suck. I shouldn't have to dump half of my merits into a spell just to make it "worthwhile" to cast. Blind II doesn't overwrite NIN (If I"m not mistaken). Phalanx is already available through other jobs. I mean the whole line up is crappy. So, for you to pretend that one set up is so much worse than another, while completely ignoring the difference in gameplay scenarios is just silly
Just because I chose not to be a cookie cutter RDM doesn't make me wrong. Just like how I wasn't afraid to be different about RDM melee in 2003, I'm not afraid or concerned about being different with these merits today.
