i bought this for 30k on Titan and it kicks *** but became slightly less useful when i got Stoneskin...but i still use it because Stoneskin lasts all of 20 seconds but Phalanx helps when stoneskin drops.

man this spell is almost worthless it was going for 150k on cerberus but all of a sudden the entire economy did a back flip alot of **** just crashed hard including this at least i got it for 10k the going price now here ^^

mainly phalanx works great at 501 enhancing and yes fascaat 18 is possible for rdm/ninja and so it 100% chance or double attack 10% per +1 or any reference gear saying enhancing double attack is same meaning diff terms although +1 mean 1% added to war trait per enhances set or + double att gears will be +10 % per enhances gear or 10%x whatever double attack gear on stacking fully boosted by 501 temper spell will not activate duel wielded sowrds more than quad attack both swords meaning never more than 8 hits per melee round. also on wskill double attack will aslo ahve chance of proc. rem war is 100% proc why se made it 10% lv 26 i belvieve adds only 1% per enhances double attack gears stacking +1% per # on gear ( x3 atheling mantle would be 3% +10 trait for war as example.) where as rdm wiht atheling mantle would be +30% but not 100% proc rate only chance of double attack so if kudzu body 99 = +30% / ahteling mantle +30% / and chimeric fleuret +40% full chance *and priocs main hand if sub weapon is chimeric fleuret as it would not if held in main proc sub weapon, basically +30 +30 +40% =100% chancve to double attack wich is best really rdm can get (could use brutal or whatver) but then missing diff gears needed) <- my opinion only. as rdm/ninj god o laksmi fascast max 19 enhANCING MAGIC 501 and eneeblemax 496. caped elemental all gears in game neeede +2 af32 +af2 + +_+ all damly +5 max +1 insta + leg crimson +4 mdb +3 (max 6) vit +5) 3-way legs blessing (max vit = 5 possible. a wonderfull char to play and a solo god aha. hope this clears up thing even i f posted in a forum porbnot about this ahhah.
damage reduction for me

I did not keep track of the exact numbers that it helped out (impossible to know what exactly may or may not have happened)

But since I solo everything (don't have time to party due to RL issus) I can tell when it is not up since the damage ratio is quite a bit different.

With it up, I have a lot less to heal at the end of the battle then in comparison to when it is not while facing the same critters.

It is one of the few spells that I make sure that I have marco'd for myself at all times. I have 3 spells up on me when I am soloing at all times when fighting. Protect II, Shell II, and Phalanx. I am currently a LVL 43 RDM and have solo'd all of the exp, and I, for one, am really happy to have Phalanx in my list of spells.

I would add an en spell, a spikes if you need it, and regen. I found these sap a bit more mp, but the exp/time situation was much much better.

Rdm is not just a clone of a blm/whm if it was there would be no point to the job you could just be a whm/blm or a blm/whm and of coarse square knows that RDM is the best and there gonna make them powerful and give them better spells RDM is the best and dont forget it.
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 14 2005 at 10:51 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i think ppl dont understand the power of phalanx, anyone who tested phalanx in ballista will understand, phalanx alone isnt that great, what is stupid with that spell is that added to stoneskin and phalanx its make your stoneskin kinda harder, i dont think SE had a good idea with this spell, i always thought rdm would be more of a fusion of whm and blm that can have spell from both job at a higher lvl, now you put dispell phalanx refresh who are rdm only.. now you got ppl that think they can solo vt, so now why doing something else then rdm? anyway i wont begin a big post against rdm but still i think they made a mistake to give phalanx to rdm cuz its just too strong, its like giving a magic shield to a warrior :/

well i just did the Holaris Peak BCNM 40. We had ta kill a crap load of worms ( i thin 18) and we only had 5 members (u can have 6)
Our pty was as follows :
Rdm/Whm (me)

We killed it with 4 mins to spare and did it about 7 times. Being a rdm i was able ta keep phalanx (our group shared the profit of everything so that all memebers benefited and no one was left with lol lousy beastcoins ^^) I think this is prolly the easiest bcnm 40 there is. we didnt even use food ~ *
# Oct 01 2004 at 9:33 AM Rating: Decent
OK this might sound sadistic but, I want to do a BCNM for it. Risky but why not? So I got the 40-60 seals, what do I do with them? Which BCNM that drop Phalanx is the eaisiest? How many people and what jobs should I get? Thanks.
Not worth the price

To tell you the truth, I'm a lvl 58 RDM on the Bahamut server and I hardly use this spell. I guess if you're out farming or facing easy prey, it may be helpful. It MAY be helpful. But when you're farming, Stoneskin and Blink are all that is needed really. I haven't seen a noticable improvement when I also have Phalanx on.

Also When you're in a party, this spell is completely useless. Take a tip from me, Don't shell out the money for this. It's not worth the price they are asking for at the Auction Houses now a days.

Dispel and Refresh are must haves for RDM. No question, hands down must have. All RDM need to have Dispel and Refresh. Phalanx is optional and not worth the price in my opinion.

I just got this spell 2x in a bcnm, I am not complaining, it is selling for 1/2 million. I agree with darth from what you are all saying it does not seem worthwhile (keep in mind, this is coming from a non-red mage). the best thing on what darth is saying about dispel and refresh is that dispel sells for 72k @ rabao which means it is immune to inflation. Refresh (which I also got from bcnm) was a modest 4k.

500k? Christ! It's 20k on Ragnarok and I still don't want to spend that much. I'm not MADE of gil. It was 3-5k before I hit 33, so now I don't feel like getting it anymore.

For those Red Mages that have never used this spell or think it's worthless you must not solo a lot. Red mage is one of THE ONLY jobs other than maybe some sort of Ninja combo or SMN that can actually solo Tough or even VT Mobs and win post 50. I am a level 67 Red Mage on the Bismarck Server and I have Solo'd the Ruby Quadav 10-12 times for my Red Mage Test. (only 1 drop so far). Either way, Phalanx acts as a Super-Protect Spell when used. It lasts for 3 minutes and it GREATLY increases the effectiveness of Stoneskin. There is never a time when I am soloing anything stronger than a EP mob at my level that I DON'T use Phalanx. Pre 50's ehhh.. it isn't really worth it. After that, it makes soloing mobs so much more fun.

Don't forget BLM. I've solo'd the Ruby Quadav twice as a 69BLM- Sleep/nuking is a powerful thing.

# Sep 07 2004 at 1:55 PM Rating: Decent
Is it just me, or is this spell pointless? At level 33 it'll only reduce, at most, 2 damage per hit. At level 75RDM/37BLM it'll reduce 24 per hit. At early levels the spell is completely useless.
# Aug 28 2007 at 6:24 PM Rating: Decent
Stack it behind stoneskin, put it on top of other rdm damage reducing attack. To damage a rdm/nin have to get past dodge, parry, shadows, stoneskin, phalanx and protect before actual damage is dealt. It's just one of the many things that helps keep a rdm alive.

Ouch, I bought this for 73,909 or something along those lines in Leviathan Jueno AH (all my money). The going price was 140-150k. I figured right away it was a mistake but no /tell for 5 minutes asking for it back or anything. I decide to use it since maybe they just felt generous. Bam, 1 minute later I get a /tell saying it was a mistake. I felt bad, but they cant do anything about it, their own mistake. If I had 60k more maybe I would pay it off, but it put me to 0 gil and I dont think he understood, he was JP. :(

This normally happens when somebody doesn't go over the proper number of times when setting the price. It may have been in there for 15k instead of 150k, who knows?

It's an easy thing to do in jeuno's lag, but he should have been more careful. If you were richer i'd say give part of the difference, but buying it put you at zero gil... so you don't really have anything else to give do you?

I'm on Garuda server and I never feel bad about paying below the cost for anything, bacuase its a risk they take for selling it at that low. With posting prices (the fees) varying in accordance to how much you're selling a specific item for and how fast things sell, I think some people pourposely set lower prices to avoid high fees and items lingering in AH for days. The funniest I've seen on my server is the Leaping boots...... I checked the prices because i was curious one day and saw the history or 200k-500k and then the one lone one that stood out, 1gil. LOL

Never feel bad about getting something at a low price.
If he put it up for the wrong price, he certainly could have taken it back down pretty quickly. It's not like these are selling as fast as earth or water crystals. He had time to realize his mistake. Too bad for him.
RE: Feel Bad
# Aug 29 2004 at 3:20 AM Rating: Decent
wait to see if it was a mistake??? WTF??!!! He probably put it at a low did to make sure his sold first. I would laugh for hours if someone sent me a tell basically saying they didnt like how little i paid for their item that was up for auction. Oh boy i would laugh for a long time. LOL

I just bought this for 200k on Midgardsormr in Jeuno, and I guess I'm just expecting more, but what does it really do? I'm taking the same amount of damage as I always have, so what is it doing that I'm not noticing? I'm disappointed in this spell, to be perfectly honest... 3 weeks worth the farming and questing for some boost that I don't even notice. lol, lovely. Any answer is welcome besides the "damage resistance" crap that I hear all of the time. Thank you.

In the RDM 101 FAQ written by Airspirit (http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/db/jobs.html?fjob=2&mid=1083715073930369133&num=391) it says that the dmg reduction is ([Enhancing Skill]/7.5)-10

Phalanx should be attainable through all three of the BCNM40, not just the two listed there currently. It should also be attainable through the BCNM60 locations of Cloister of Tides and Sacrificial Chamber (the non-standard locations).

This information was taken from Mysterytour. Click the BCNM Link on the Menu to the left for more details on BCNM drops.
