Great work so far, but I had a suggestion on a sub group for stun. Teach these new drks when to stun. There are far more uses than just interrupting ancient magic and -ga III spells. There are a hand full of mob weapon skills that we can stun to make life easier for the entire party. Goblin bombs most people know. Goblin rush is one that most drks (that i've seen lately) ignore. No, you can't stop them from doing it, but you can give the ninja a break on trying to put shadows back up after. No matter the situation, goblin rush wipes 3 shadows. Please use stun after goblin rush, help out your ninja. Pecking flurry from Colibri's is another similar shadow clearing move. Stun after you see this. It makes a huge difference. Whirl of Rage from weapon type mobs is a good one to stun also. Or just stun even if you see ichi being interrupted. Or the tanks hps dip into the red. sometimes the healers need another second to cast. you have a spell, help out your party with it. There really isn't a bad time to stun; it's going to help pretty much any time you cast it. I'm sure there are a hand full i'm leaving out but this was just thought that hit me.

Lesser Colibri don't reflect. I've been stunning after every peckling flurry.




Ridill = death because theres a level of damage that makes you pull hate, then lose it, and then theres a level of hate that keeps the mob glued onto you no matter what you do and you're perma tank.


Ridill swings so much, and hits hard enough, that you never really get the mob to lose interest in you, whereas with 528 delay scythe the mob has a nice amount of time to forget you exist.

Also note, that the colibri dont actually "reflect"

To Reflect would mean that your spell doesn't ever touch the mob, but it does. If you cast stun on the Colibri, it will be stunned, it simply mimic's you. Whatever you cast on it, it will cast back on you.

This means that, for example, you can sleep them, but when it wakes up bet your *** it will cast sleep on you XD

Wow...I come back and I find that your still mentioning me in your posts?

Wow I am pretty Pro.

All that aside, you have the basics down, its your understanding of the game I deplore, and your inflexibility of the job and its uses I deplore.

But yea the fact that I'm still mentioned by "your highness" (snicker) is funny.

Anyway You still haven't come to my server yet to get your *** beat.

Thats Phoenix btw.

Until you come over here and put your money where your mouth is, shove it.

Oh yea, edit: I read some other parts, and well your overall egotistical and elite attitude is very annoying, **** I'm just racist against fictional races, your a complete @#%^ to your peers for branching out.

Dark Knight is not just spike damage, its the alter-ego of the red mage as well. You can make it a crazy spike damage (or wave) dealer, or you can make it the most versatile melee in the game. You neglect to mention those parts.

So I have something to say:

--FOR GOD SAKES TAKE ADVICE BUT LISTEN TO YOURSELVES YOUR OWN PATH IS THE BEST PATH---

Hay Sakaio, nice sig. :D It's funny how you try to insult me for not knowing how to spell your meaningless name, but you can't even figure out how to work the quote function in your sig. It's ok though, since it probably takes a third grade education to figure out, you'll get there some day.

I see your still looking up words in a dictionary to try to make your posts seem more intelligent, your sentence structure and use of those words are so awkward and misplaced I can barely force myself to read what your write. Good to have you back though. :D

Ooooooh, I see entertainment. Entertain me saikio, I need to get a good laugh. But seriously, your aspects of DRK are amastuer at best. You think you know everything and that because u have other things capped and other subs done it makes u better then average. Wrong my friend, being able to play the job itself to the best of its abilities is what makes u better then average. 95% of DRKs do not know how to play the job, therefore being better then the average DRK is jus knowing how to do the job correctly.

But hey Saikio, thank you for putting my name in your sig, and thank you for bumping my thread some more for others to see =). Me and Disifer appreciate your help in keeping out thread bumped up.


PS. Coming to your server? You expect me to go and level DRK over there? LMFAO........ Am i seriously gonna waste my time leveling a new character in your server jus to prove a 2-3min fight and then have a useless character on phoenix, or you plan on me to migrate and lose all my friends, ls, and stuff i got here? I wasted enough of my time in my life playing this game, and i wasted even more time acknowledging your existance by replying to your post.

Have a good day =).
Please reply saikio, keep bumping my thread up as it helps me out ^-^

Huh? :S

It isn't that often I meet a DRK who doesn't know how to play DRK. :s

Unless you want to get into incredible detail but that's going into things like God armour, Sea, Dynamis, Limbus etc. and not everybody has access to that, doesnt mean they don't know how to play DRK. :S

Not going off at you or anything Renz just confused. ^^;

I invited a DRK59/THF29 (don't ask me why they were doing...that...but no other DD was seeking) to my party, today. After he hit 60, and got all that fun scythe skill out of the way, I asked him to please Trick Attack Guillotine onto the PLD.

His response was, "What? Why?"

He then proceed to stand behind the monster the entire time, SATA Guillotining...onto no one. Just stood behind and SATA Guillotined. I stopped trying to tell him otherwise, after a while. I was having a hard enough time trying to get the Amazing Dancing PLD to hold still for THF SATA, and reminding the BRD that we can have two buffs up at once, and asking the WHM TO PLEASE COME UP CLOSER TO THE NORTH SO THAT THE POPPING PUKS BACK THERE DON'T EAT YOUR FACE OFF AND YOU DI-- Oh, too late.

Yeah, it was one of those parties. The Taru THF rocked hardcore, though. Still, I don't think I'll be inviting anymore DRKs for a while. A long while. Unless they're from my LS. The LS DRKs rock.

I played WoW, once...

Oh, wait, I'm sorry, that was just that one time I was trying to boil my eyeballs with my torch lighter, not me playing WoW. Phew, honest mistake.

Haha, I use to think the same thing about WoW until I tried it. Now I can't believe I ever played FFXI over it, everyone has their own opinion about things though.

I actually did try it for a couple of weeks. Wasn't my thing, so I bought FFXI instead.

My opinion may or may not change depending on whether or not what I'm told about the drama inherent in endgame is true or not. It's not that I'll quit FF, it's just that I have a low tolerance for ******** and I'll most likely be banned for an "unsociable attitude" if I encounter the type of **** I'm told about in Endgame LS horror stories.

Since this has devolved to a flame war, and I have an actual question, I'll ask it anyway on the hope of bringing it back to the OP.

I'm about to ding 60 after being in the 55-59 range for about a year (had to farm for gear, deal with price spikes, then quit and returned), and was wondering what would be best to sub in parties 60+. I've heard war/thf/sam, and I'm planning to level sam once I get guillotine (war/sam impressed me the other night in bibiki with it), but if I'm given a choice about what to sub (I usually ask the party which they'd prefer), which should I choose? If it matters, accuracy+40 from gear, don't know if that'll change anything.

Well at 60 it opens up a bit. WAR/SAM is great but depending on whether its a NIN tank or not could be a little deadly at that level; with a PLD tank you'd be better off, really until about 64 partying with Ninjas is a little dangerous unless its somebody who knows the job well which may or may not be the case; same goes for /WAR. /THF isn't practical till 65/66 and in all honesty isn't too practical at all anymore unless you're in a SC party, but again an SC party is better left /THF at 65/66. I don't see too many SC parties around these days but they do exist. Also, /DRG is great but seeing you didn't list that may not be an option, its something to be considered.
