I wish they had more ammo pieces for monk. I agree this is pretty decent item to have for any job to fill up your ammo slot.
I hate him so much

this item has to have a hidden effect of critical up.

ever since i got it i've noticed an increase of the rates of critical hits.

i dont know if monsters level effects the rate of crits, but i was running through a low lvl zone killing low lvl stuff for fun, and about 10/15 hits were critical.

at any rate, i see a critical increase in exp partys as well

I'm pretty sure this item doesn't have a hidden effect of critical hit up.

I know this is more than a few months old... <.<
But if I remember correctly, Critical hit rate is based on your Dex and the monster's Agi. So low level monsters you should be getting more criticals on then say a tough mob.
end game item

No. Notice 'Rare' at the top right? That means you can only hold one.

Well im 8/20 on this thing and i've soloed it so far twice as rdm/nin. Thing is a pain cause of pollen and cure V. I try to keep it silenced at all all times and use Hornetneedle Dagger as my main and Joyeuse as my secondary. I mainly use dagger to drain it's mp so that it doesn't use Cure V. I've have also notice that the constant draining of MP the less it uses Pollen and when it does uses Pollen it not but a little over 1k hp recovery. Have dueled it most of the time but i'm happy to say I have soloed it twice now. Last time i soloed it i got drop. So I have one of my own, sold 3 of them, gave one away to a fellow member. The first time we got drop we my dule friend kept it. One was thrown at a magic pot in Sky and last one was given to another ls member as a gift.
Have seen a pt of 6 ppl not be able to take it down and just give up on it. Yet i've been able to solo it quite easily.

My Japanese friend says that the Tiphia Sting has a hidden critical hit% plus to it. Can anyone confirm this?

It's going for 2 million on my server and I dont want to shell the money out for it unless there is a hidden +critical hit rate to it. Else, I would stick to Bomb Core on my DRK.
Bailthorn Better 4 nin

13 kills, 2 drop. One Tipihia Sting thrown at an Aura Pot in sky... one still in use. LS is 4/16 on the drop or so, easily duoed if you know how, mutates after roughly 60 minutes.

MPKed, mob stolen, MPKed more, you name it, its happened over this. Meiho and the quangs are constently trying to MPK, and GMs are constantly jailing them, caution on CaitSith

So it says it's Ammo...

But which TYPE of Ammo is it?

It looks like some of the NIN Shurikens that aren't meant to be thrown, (Like that one with Enmity+ that I can't remember the name of.) but Allakhazam doesn't know yet. Do any of you guys know?

I guess it could be a bolt, too. Seems so-so for Unlimited Shot. But eh, I'm not a Ranger. What do I know.

ya...this isnt meant to be used incase you cant tell. its like the bomb core or morion tathlum...good to wear for stats not good to throw
RE: o.O?
# Aug 05 2005 at 7:21 AM Rating: Decent
The attack+ and accuracy+ don't apply to ranged attack so this and unlimited shot would suck seeing as this doesnt have that good damage.
Good stuff.
