One of DRKs more useful abilities. At least after the update a couple years back. If something can be stunned, it will be stunned using Weapon Bash. All the Weapon Bash + gear now just adds additional damage to the hit.

As it says on the ability, you can only use this move with a 2 handed weapon, so sorry but using a Sword on your rdm/drk will not work, lol you already have Chainspell + Stun is that not enough for you :P

Another note is that after the update to this move, im very happy with it, before you could do a weapon bash, and you barely realize that its worked, now you can do this on a MNK in dynamis and you see its as strong as the magic Stun, this is awesome as now DRK has effectively 2 stuns at will now, when fighting NMs like Hakutaku, or Animated Mobs in Xarcabard, this move is needed :)

Ok my thing is can I weapon bash as rdm/drk with a 1handed sword? I just wanna use /drk for being a stun **** ;-P but the added abilitys of Vorpal Blade and The absorb spells makes me Drool ;-Q......................... I could just imagine absorb-int (which I cant get) and then Stone III or something ;-Q...... but yea souleater last resort Vorpal blad is pretty nice especially since I get to keep Drain and Aspir. Any comments on Weapon Bash are welcome ^^ thanxz again

What are the chances (%) of this actually stunning the enemy. I have noticed as of late that it won't even stop a spell or gob bomb.

I was also wondering if anything affects its accuracy for stunning.

Someone back a ways said something about a lvl 50 ring. That would be worth a swap macro in my weapon bash. Also, for stunning, stun seems to work better on lightnings day and during lightning weather. Wow, I sound like Captain Obvious there >,>

This is best against NINJA's or ppl with utsusemi at ballista.. becauz this Goes thru Utsusemi(blink) and while they r stunned from its effect, u cast poisonaga to take off their shadows...and let loose GUILLOTINE.. ^^

*note i was talking in relation to 60 Cap ballista*

i did try a 283 xp for pt of 6.....by chain i think.....but if say 250 is maxium....think about when you r lv50+.....250 each it takes you days for a level man.....is a posible???
Weapon Bash is Great

I have been using it for a bit now and have started to understand when to use it. I have stopped a few gob bombs and some onions sleeps so far.
not useless
# Feb 18 2004 at 6:43 AM Rating: Decent
I've personally hit 296xp several times chaining the onion heads in Yhoater Jungle. We had an excellent Bard, WHM, BLM, PAL, WAR and me a DRK. The bard kept the party going non stop. I think I went from lvl 27-32 in one sitting. It was wonderful.

Also, Weapons bash seems to get more dependable as you level up. I've succesfully disrupted a mobs casting many times.
300 xp
# Jan 15 2004 at 1:37 PM Rating: Default
300 xp is not unheard of. With a good party you can take on high level caster mobs for great xp... just make sure you have a Red Mage in the party to Silence them. And a white mage to Curaga at the end of the fight after the goblin has done 100 daamge to everyone with his bomb.

I've done goblins at the tower in Quifim for 240+ xp (really solid group).. so 300 sounds quite possible. Oh and your mages make a BIG diffrence... most important thing, healer must not be an idiot... and next, a good Red mage really helps. They land enfeebles on IT mobs that no one else has a hope of. There's nothing more reliving when your HP is in the red and you think the next hit will kill you and then instead of getting hit you see "The Gobblin Leecher is paralyzed" :-)

And speaking of goblins, if your not saving your weapon bash to interupt those bombs, SHAME ON YOU. That is one of the major draws for partys taking us in... stop one goblin bomb and you stop the whole party from taking 100 damage each... You've just healed your party for 600hp :-)

I believe 250 is the maximum. I was in a party with someone two levels below me and we both got 250 after fighting an IT land worm in Korroloka Tunnel (he was lv15 and I was lv 17).

200 is the max you can get from ONE creature with no XP chain. With an XP chain you can get significantly higher.

300xp (exactly) would be rare. It means that you are chaining IT's (very tough ones at that), you are the highest level PT member, and you have chained 5 or more of them. At least if I'm reading
this site properly.

i got 260xp a couple days ago from a yuhtanga mandragora. highest lvl in the party was 25 and i believe we were on chain #3. highest you can normally get is 200 but ive gotten the following with xp chains:
chain 1= 240
chain 2= 250
chain 3= 260
i dont know the exact %rates of chain 4 and 5 but i would think at least 280 and maybe higher is POSSIBLE but extremely hard to get b/c of how fast you have to be to get chain 5.

in CN i have gotten chain 4 yeilding about 280.
key is as posted above you need a solid pt who knows what they are doing and you have to be quick, mages get mp ticks whenever they can and renkei are a must.

while i have never seen it, i have heard of high level "power leveling" where you have 6 damage dealers. and 2 or 3 whm healing like crazy. you are able to do massive dmg to the monsters and when you have no worries of mp you have no down time, and with this i have heard that if you get less than 250 exp you are starting an exp chain or you suck

180-300 xp? 300? Ummmm send screenshot of 300xp would love to see that..

What sucks is not only is this skill of limited use but at lvl 50 they have these rings that add a considerable amount to specific Job skills.

Thief gets +10 To steal. Summoner gets +10 to summons, Dark gets +10 to weapon bash! WOOO YEAH

Paladins get +10 to Shield bash but I dont know if its as good as weapon bash... it could be useful dunno.(Also I cant really remember what the other Jobs got so that info might be wrong however I DO KNOW that Weapon Bash and Shield Bash were the right skills raised for DRK and PLD).

the description says extra powerful attack, the attack is not extra powerful, at level 32 i do 10 damage with it. it is used for stunning a mob or disrupting his spell or bomb toss or anyting like that. the worst thing about it is it rarely ever disrupts them and you can only try it 1 time ever 5 min.
# Jan 02 2004 at 10:38 AM Rating: Default
If for example a Mr. Goblin wants to BOMB your ***, use it and he will be instantly raped.

Used to goblins smithey at khazam and got like 180-300 exp from them, with party of course (all LV29 in my case).
