If you want to be sure of the information posted here check Wiki. Yes DNC can equip it.

I'm just wondering if a weaponskill like energy drain or energy steal would work for breaking the latent, I assumed it was any weaponskill but some of my friends say the weaponskill has to do damage so if anyone could clear this up I'd appreciate it.

Do you earn points for weapon skilling / skill chaining in Besieged or Campaign Battle?

Yes to besieged, no to campaign.

I haven't broken mine yet, so I can't speak from personal experience, but I researched it for a while because I had wanted to do a load of campaign. Since I found that out I haven't actually done a singe campaign =( I need to get back to that.
Dynamis WS Pts.

I don't see this mentioned here, but I just learned (since I needed 357 points to break it [and I got 57 points in Dynamis tonight]) that you cannot use your weapon and expect to gain points for it in Dynamis. They will not count sadly.

If you have 20 or less HP when the latent is broken, will you die?
# Apr 22 2007 at 8:41 AM Rating: Decent
Um... LMAO. Are you serious? Cuz that question is pretty... well, dumb.
# Oct 05 2006 at 4:46 AM Rating: Decent
stupid question.
As you should know hp+20 means your max hp increases by 20.
Therefore before latent breaks your hp can be 15/xxx it will be 15/xxx-20 after it breaks.

LOL.. I had to think about that for .05 seconds..
Can I get the WS points with another job?

Ok, back-story.
My NIN is 74, its dagger skill not high enough to attain the Evisceration quest.
My BRD just dinged 73, and I capped off my dagger, I can now flag the quest as BRD.
Because BRD is so slow, however, I want to know if I can get the WS points as my NIN? (Haste Build, Dual Wield IV, and high damage mitigation FTW)

I can also confirm this, I got WHM to 70 to get enough club skill to unlock quest, and did all my WS's to break latent as 71BLM who's skill is capped below requirement to unlock quest.

Yes it works. Friend of mine got it with RDM but used RNG to do the WSs. NIN doing it for BRD wouldn't be any different, since NIN can equip it.^^

WOW this sucks for bard, there is no way to break the latent easy because we get such ****** WS, and there's no time in PT to melee especially when we're in sky or doing KRT... i hate this quest
# Apr 22 2007 at 8:48 AM Rating: Decent
Well don't be a dumbass. You obviously have 75 RDM and 75 THF accroding to your signature... So why are you trying to break a latent with a job that doesn't even attack. Use your brain and either go RDM/NIN or THF/NIN and go duo with someone or party your THF... Am I the only one who thought that post was completely pointless...?
# May 02 2007 at 6:16 AM Rating: Decent
Check your dates is all I can say. It's possible to get those 2 jobs to 75 in a year.

Asked an exp pt if they minded if i used my dagger of trials, they said no prob. 60 light SCs later (about 3 hours or so) latent was off and i switched back to mi harpe :-D. I had a drg do wheeling thrust followed by my shark bite. So if your a thf id severly recomend setting up a light SC as it is worth 5 points, good luck :-)
Flame of Rancor
# May 02 2005 at 9:33 PM Rating: Decent
anyone know why the Chief wont give me this quest? She said something about having the "flame of rancor" on my hands and told me I have one day to pack my stuff and get out.

How do I erase this off me? Like for the Opo-opo quest?

Thx in advance..

hmm, she should give you the dagger quest even if u have another one open. cuz when i got my scythe quest i had another open with Novalmauge. So why would it be different? weird.

would raising your dagger skill through artificial means count to get the quest?

ie: could i equip a Dagger belt and sub /thf to get an easy dagger+5, which would bring skillcap @71BRD to 231?

i dont wanna wait 2 extra lvls ;_;
# Apr 22 2007 at 8:54 AM Rating: Decent
Um... NO. I'm pretty sure it says that one of the requirements are "BASE" Dagger Skill 230. That means 230 without enhancements or additional effects...

Just to clarify- 71 is the minimum level, but bards can't get this quest untill level 73 due to crappy weapon rank. Still, better than our ability to use Retribution only at level 75.

I HATE this quest...like 4 days doing lvl 1~3 SCs...

will you still get points if this dagger is in the offhand ?

No, you will not get any points while this is in the offhand. A friend of mine had to learn that one the hard way. >_<

You must equip it in your main hand.

The latent effect is active until you 'clear' the weapon. As soon as you have finished collecting points you will no longer get the latent effect bonuses.

This item is used to earn Evisceration WS.

Once you have lvl 71 and Dagger lvl 230+... talk to Jakoh Wahcondalo in Kazham.

You need to earn 300 points. You MUST use this dagger to earn the points. (This will remove the Latent Effect.)

1 pt = using a WS
2 pts = lvl 1 Skillchain
3 pts = lvl 2 Skillchain
5 pts = lvl 3 Skillchain.

After this... investigate the ??? @ I-8 (2nd map) in Gustav Tunnel to defeat an NM bat (Baronial Bat) and receive the Writing of Trial. Return to Jakoh Wahcondalo to receive your new WS.
