The Arcane Tome of DOOM™ (Link Compilation)Follow

#27 Jan 31 2005 at 1:27 PM Rating: Good
Added a new elemental Weakness table to section 1, courtesy of Progenitor. You may need to run it through Babel Fish to understand all of it. I provided a link to both it and Babel Fish. I was really impressed by this site, it took a lot of the guesswork out of the arguements that've been taking place recently.

While I'm happy this got stickied, I'm kind of sad that it replaced the BLM101. I appologize to BlastolaQuetz for usurping his spot, and I'll give his link special treatment because of it.

EDIT: It would seem someone out there REALLY doesn't like me, and rated every post I have in this thread down. Hope it wasn't because of my usurping ;.;

Big Ditto on that one. Since becoming a Blm within the last month, Sloppy Sue's posts have been an asset to me.

Big rate up for the Sloppiest Mage around from one of the Neatest Mages around! (Only cause I'm new, haven't been broken in yet. I've still got that new car smell too!)

Update: Added KudomaBooYah's excellent guide. Sorry that I missed it while digging the first time around...some of the things said about Burn and Shock havn't really been proven, so I'm sorry I had to add a disclaimer to it.

I also added OmegaManOne's levelling area guide. I thought it would be good to reference.

I changed Duracell's flavor text, to reflect the fact he updated it.

Also, I'm going to adding a marker to signify when a new thread has been added to the compilation...hopefully it'll give them more attention. The markers will be removed after two updates.

Added Cesium's equipment guide, to balance out Duracell's. Though written in slight spite of each other, they cover each other's weaknesses very well.

No problem at all. A lot of things pertaining to BLM have remained a mystery, or the truth is hidden amoung the made up stories. I still don't know about certain things with BLM and it ****** me off being 75 and not knowing for CERTAIN that things do what I think they do. =\

I do thank you for adding my guide though. /bow

I added the best FFXI flash game I've seen to the appendix. It's fun and addictive! If you want to know more about it, run it through babelfish with the link I supplied next to the elemental weakness chart. This has been floating around for a while, but only now did I realize I should put it in the compilation.

(General Note: You have to HOLD C in order to get your shields to work. Took me a few tries to figure that one out.)

Haha, that Galka game is great. Before I knew it I was getting <calls> from my party because the game pulled me in for a long time.

Since I've had to repeat it multiple times in one thread, I think Elemental Enfeebles Misconceptions? could be added to Section 5: Section Five: Black Mage Only spells, and their quirks.

I think more people should try to verify/disprove it.

I'm going to take you up on this Nivlakian, and add it to the compilation, mainly because it was a misconception that I helped propagate. Also, you're right, it has come up pretty often in recent threads, so it is more than justified here.

EDIT: A GENERAL NOTE ON MY STANDARDS FOR PSEUDO-STICKIES

Since I've had a few people PM me recently, asking for something they wrote to be linked here, I'll let you all know what I look for before stickying something.

I don't have very exacting standards, mainly because that would defeat the purpose of this thread. But what I usually look for first is that the thread is fairly well written, gets good remarks from other posters on these boards, or has hard information that is very progressive and factual.

I also try to shy away from threads that people will simply request I remove, and also try to only have one or two threads on the same subject, unless a new one would complement the information in the others (for example, Cesium's equipment guide).

I want this thread to above all contain factual and relevant info that everyone should know...and hopefully I've lived up to that so far.

It's been a while...but new update!

At OmegaManOne's request, I've added President's guide to manaburn parties in the first section. It both well-written and goes far enough in depth to earn a pseudo-sticky. I'm not sure why it was rated so low, so if you find it useful, please rate it up.

I've also added OmegaManOne's BLM psych profile to the appendix, people seemed to like it a lot, and its also the first thread I've seen that really fits into the appendix since I first wrote my compilation...

it's rated low due to its poor tactics, like his advice that the rdm pull with DiaII, then sleep the mob. The responses, like grandebob's, contain better information than the OP.

Added two new tips to Section 5: Black Mage only spells, and their quirks.

One of them I wrote, pardon the narcissism, and the other Duracell jocked my style with :P Learn from our stupidity!

EDIT: Theres that third star!
