Go here and fill this out and tell them they should make PPA and GMB have a latent effect of ranged attack activated by having Unlimited Shot active. :P


Edit: this is what i wrote in case anyone was wonderin what to write.

In light of the recent update modifying items such as Bomb Core not being able to be thrown. I would like to suggest you add the same thing to at least two more ammo items: Patriarch Protectors Arrow and Gold Muskateer's Bolt. Perhaps put on a latent effect that allows them to be fired when Unlimited Shot is active. This is the only reason these two pieces of ammo exist. Not to be thrown away.

With the addition of the new areas, it's a snail's pace to get more conquest points once you get a job past 65. If it weren't for these two things, i wouldn't be saying this, as I believe in the way the game works. But since those two things are now in play, I believe these pieces of ammo should be given another look.

Thank you for your consideration.
Question re DracontX Macros

In DracontX' macro #2 (and thank you DracontX!!), would it make sense to take out the /p and /echo, and instead put in 2 lines:

/equip ammo [nothing after ammo]
/wait 2

and then load the GMB. The same thing in the macro to re-equip other bolts.

With the "/equip ammo", it should clear the ammo slot, and provide extra protection that the GMB is actually equipped, and that it is actually unequipped when you want to load other bolts, and the /wait 2 would be a failsafe wait period if you are in a high lag situation. The actual wait is relatively unimportant, since after a Slugshot with GMB, Rng wants to lay off for a bit anyway.

Just a post out of general interest, never got my Rng over 43 in my playing days.

Just wanted to post this was listed on Rank7 CP NPC in bastok when I checked. I'm a citizen of San D'Oria

Lost it, But my macros were good.

My macros were flawless but I changed it while in a party for use in a Blast Shot weapon skill. I used it while away from the mob, (I forgot that you needed to be close for that weapon skill to work), and lost my TP. Since I was too far the macro didn't cycle all the way through and didn't equip my normal ammo. Under normal circumstances with my Slug Shots it worked perfectly.
Note: I just basically looked at everyone's macros on here and in the PPA forum and made it into what I feel is the best way to format it. It has bits from a few different people and isn't really my own creation. But here is what I've compiled...

Macro 1) GMB
/recast "Unlimited Shot"
/wait 1
/ja "Unlimited Shot" <me>
/wait 1
/equip ammo "Gold Musketeer's bolt"

Macro 2a) SLUGSHOT
/ws "Slug Shot" <stnpc>
/p Using (Slug Shot)!
/wait 2
/equip ammo
/wait 1
/equip ammo

Macro 2b) HEAVYSHO
/ws "Heavy Shot" <stnpc>
/p Using (Heavy Shot)!
/wait 2
/equip ammo
/wait 1
/equip ammo

Macro 3) TP
/p (Ranger) <tp>
/recast "Unlimited Shot"

Macro 4) Recast
/recast "Eagle Eye Shot"
/recast "Shadowbind"
/recast "Scavenge"
/recast "Sharpshot"
/recast "Barrage"
/recast "Unlimited Shot"

Macro 5) Darkstee
/equip ammo "Darksteel Bolt"
/wait 1
/recast "Unlimited Shot"

Those are all my important macros. Macro 1 and 2 are for when Unlimited Shot is ready and I have 100% TP. I do the first one which uses Unlimited Shot and equips my GMB, then the second one to shoot it and unequip the ammo. Notice the use of <stnpc> instead of <t>. It helps a lot for timing your weapon skill. I would tap my second macro right after I see my /echo message and just wait for the right time to use it so that I'm ready and I don't have to wait for my both macros to cycle through because it will fire immediately after.
Macro 3 is just your straight TP check and keeps you informed of the status of your Unlimited Shot. Macro 4 tells you all job abilities' status with the least imporant one's on the top and the most important on the bottom. If you don't want to spam your TP check you could use this one.
Macro 5 is for equipping darksteel bolts instead of your GMB when Unlimited Shot is not ready to use your weapon skill. It can also be used for equipping them for Barrages.

Edit: I tweaked them a bit and put in two "/equip ammo"s at the end of the weapon skills in order to unequip the ammo instead of changing it to a different ammo. I didn't know this was possible until CRJR pointed it out.
I've since gotten a new GMB and have been using this setup for a while now. Good luck to anyone who wishes to use this bolt!

First line: /ja "Unlimited Shot" <me>
Second line: /wait 2
Third line: /equip ammo "Gold Musketeer's Bolt"
Fourth line: /ws "Slug Shot"

note: This is VERY IMPORTANT that you wait a few seconds after your last ranged attack or your unlimited shot will not activate! I made that mistake and lost my bolt /cry ; ; there goes a crap load of cp wasted

also dont use in high lag ereas, i just lost my second bolt in dynamis windurst ><

oops i ment to post this as a reply not a new subject :/

If it is actauly 32k conquest points, it must be a rank 7 item. I have enough conquest points to purchase it and have my rank. The problem is it is never in stock!! I have NEVER seen it in all my rng career (67rng). I would realy like to get one to use it with my Obow but it just isin't there. Can anyone help me out with this?

Anybody with this bolt want to give us an extremely safe macro for it? I don't have unlimited shot so I don't know exactly how the ability works.

Would this be good?:

1.)/ja "Unlimited Shot" <me>
/recast "Unlimited Shot"
/equip ammo "Silver Bullet"
2.)/equip ammo "Gold Musketeer's Bolt"

Not as nice as having it all in one macro, but I think you'd have to do the shot seperately, right? After Unlimited Shot is activated, you equip the Bolt, and then Slugshot. Then you use the Unlimited Shot macro again to re-equip the regular ammo?

RE: Be careful
# Feb 17 2006 at 4:33 AM Rating: Excellent
I'm probably being OVERLY safe...but I REALLY don't want to shoot this thing by mistake...
So, what I did, was FIRST, when I was 55~ I started to practice my macro chain (which I'll put in the end)with Darksteel Bolts that I would just use for Weapon Skills, so there would be a damage increase from my Holy Bolts, and see SOMEWHAT what it'll be like....

Here's my Macro list.

/ja "Sharpshot" <me>

/ja "Unlimited Shot" <me>

/equip ammo "Gold Musketeer's bolt"

/p (Ranger) (Weapon Skill) =<<<====|><t> @3...
/wait 3
/ws "Slug Shot" <t>

/equip ammo "Holy Bolt"

It is a lot, but I don't wanna risk a macro lagging at some point and not unequiping the bolt, so I go through each step to make sure things are going as planned, as I SEE "equipment changed" and have a chance to fix/alter anything as is needed.
I don't have Sharpshot/Unlimited shot in the same macro in case I need one and not the other, so I've just drummed into myself Alt 4, Alt 5, Alt 6, Alt 7, alt 8. Just going down the line one macro at a time, and not to take my hand off the keyboard until I'm done with my weaponskill.
I'm not saying this is the best way...this is just my way. if anyone else knows any easier way to guarante a safer method, I'm more than interested. I just wanna make sure that if the bolt get's shot, it'll be MY fault, and not due to server lag or hickup or something like that.

And that's my rant. -_^

Is this item tradeable? I have a friend willing to spend some of his 69K conquest points to get this item for me, but I want to make sure that he can trade it. Does this item have a Rare or EX rating to it?

you obviously dont know what you're talking about, have you seen Slugshot with the Othinus' Bow, after inflicting the mob with DEF Down w/ an Acid Bolt? Using this Bolt with Slugshot after an Acid Bolt process would definitely be absolutely amazing damage. Actually I think RuKenshin showed a picture of this exact situation, with a bard singing Attack & R.Acc songs on him.

If you dont know exactly what you're talking about, shut your mouth.

atlevel60 i started using the heavy crossbow+1 and using this bolt for my slug shots

one comment... WOW, the damage is amazing

Why I like xbow: 1) if compared to musketeers gun+1 and silver bullets, the damage is same amount as heavy crossbow+1 with darksteel bolts, but the crossbow has more ranged atk. and it's there all the time....not just in nations under your control or not under you control (i forget which one)

2) The CP arrow: that extra 10 damage, extra 20 ranged atk, and extra 10 ranged acc. just make my slug shots amazing

3) Def down bolts: when the effect takes place everyone hits harder....this also boosts up the damage from my slug shot, as well as everything else

Only downfall of this bolt.... is i'm freaked out as $h*t that there will be chaos and i'll forget to switch back

but if that were to happen, I guarantee I'd spend another 32K points to get another

#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 30 2004 at 4:01 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) omg no its used with the ability of rng that makes that u dont use ammo... lol who would pay 32k CP for 1 bolt? these are like PP arrows...
# Aug 24 2004 at 12:04 AM Rating: Decent
Othinus bow (which is a crossbow) is the preffered weapon of choice for the majority of ranger 67+. Thus having a stronger and more accurate Slug Shot with this bolt every 3 mins is worth the 32k cp =p
somebody sort of got it right

I'm so sick of hearing this OVER and OVER and OVER again "this is sooo useless, who would pay for this item, you cna't even equip XX while using this, you only get to use it once it's not wirth XX gil."

How 'bout we all get something straight, these things (this item in particular, but all other exotic throwing items as well) were designed for two particular cases.

1) They simply sit in your throwing slot, never being used, and giving you stats. ex. Morion Tathlum for BLM gives +1 INT, the best thing for that slot (until 60 i think, when you can get a better Tathlum).

2) They are intended for RNG ONLY. Even though a lot of these things can be used by WAR or DRK or THF, really they might as well be RNG only. A high level RNG gets an ability called "Unlimited Shot" (i think that's what it's called). 5 minute ability, let's you take one shot without actaully using your ammo. So you set it as macros to use your ability, and then if it works, another macro switches to your special ammo, takes one shot, and then switches back to your normal stuff. To MANY rangers, getting one of these exotic ammo pieces is more than worth it.
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 07 2004 at 8:49 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It seems idiotic that someone would actually pay 32000 conquest points (or so) for ONE bolt.

it's supposed to be used with the level 51 ranger ability which lets you fire one shot without consuming ammo.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 30 2004 at 4:40 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ... you have to pay about 20k conquest points for one... Its only usefull if you use a boomrang as your ranged weapon, since you will only use it for show anyways. Getting 99 of these is IMPOSSIBLE for a single person to do.

Not quite. Purchased with Conquest Points, 32,000 for one, it is used by RNGs only, Unlimited Shot ability which means your NEXT ranged attack will not fire a projectile. So you use normal ammo for TP, when you have as much as you want, change to this bolt, hit unlimited shot, slug shot or whatever WS you like, then switch back.
EX item, UNtrade-able. Once you spend your CP on it, it's yours until you drop it.
