Meikyo shisui

first of all, Meikyo Shisui meaning

Meikyo : Meiyo(Kanji) : Honor(english)
Shisui : seisui (Romaji) : Pure(english)

so Meikyo Shisui means a Pure Honor

Yep, that is one of the stronger 2 hours, using it gives you a great hate from the mob only if you hit, cause you know, samurai's ws miss several time. you can solo a 2 skill chain in a row and if you use Meditate while 2 hours, 3 SC possibly. Soboro(GK lvl 50) help you alot for building tp, having haste gear isnt a waste of money, like +10% haste gives you a 2 secondes shorter, Haste itself gives a +15%.
i use /drg for jumps abilities(like a direct hit who gives you the same amount of tp than a normal hit) and soloing Fusion with Gekko(silence effect) and Kasha(paralyse effect). Fusion in party gives you a great amount of hate, so be sure to have seigan + third eye ready to use
i still looking forward to solo Light without 2 hours, so, 2 light SC in a row is possible.

secret ability

Whenever I use this 2hr I noticed that my Tp damage would increase and when a WS would come, huge damage to the monster! This attack also dosen't generate as much hate to you as other 2hr attacks like "Eagle Eye Shot". Its sweet

At 100% TP, WS > Meikyo Shisui > WS > Meditate > WS > WS > Icarus Wing(100%TP) > WS > WS. Oh yeah, don't forget to take Meikyo Shisui off after you're down to 0%, because you cannot gain TP from regular melee hits when it is activated.

Meikyo shusui was a samurai? i thought it meant wise reflection . I could be wrong tho. I dont remember gilgamesh saying anything about that and i did that quest last week. Also, while using 2hr, your tp does not genereate while using WS during 2hr. im level 20 so i havent seen meditate yet but, it is possible to use 4 ws .And as far as the rumor of the 300% worth on each attack is wrong....I.e. pulling an IT snipper in dunes, gob popped so i had to solo the crab....i had a WS ready so this is how it worked Tachi:enpi for 70 dmage...2hr....tachi enpi (at 300%tp) for 125 damage...renkai distortion for 60 damage...tachi:enpi(200tp) for 82 damage....tachi enpi (100tp) for 51 damage ...renkai distortion for 21 damage...Note the damage decerase as the tp bar gets lower. Btw the crab did not use metalic body or any sort of defense or evasion increasing buf on itself...i used thrid eye before i started it missed me, missed again and hit me twice after that and I dropped it before it got a chance to hit me again...AND i had enough time to help the PT with tht gob :)
My way

If you do it my way you can make 5... Already have 100% + PT and use a WS - meditate and WS again, 2 hours and use 3 more WS.. makes for nice DMG esp when u got more then 1 SAM and one is using a PLM while one uses GKT
# Jul 02 2004 at 10:14 PM Rating: Decent
lotta fun doin this with another sam ^^
also, if you have your 240 skills and the other sam is using pl you can go back and forth doin lv3 skillchains - just do Tachi: Gekko <-> Impulse drive for darkness over and over - if each sam had 100tp to start with and meditate ready, you could get off 9 darkness skillchains - that'd be enough to take out an IT with just two sams easy - possibly take out mobs 10-15lv higher solo o_O
haha... time to take on kirin with a party of all sams ^^

You can actually do 5 if you have meditate and 100%TP when you set off 2hr:

100+% > Enpi > 2hr > Kagero > Meditate > Enpi > Kagero > Goten

Liqeufaction, scission, liqeufaction, fusion. =)

oooh and Fire2 and Banish2 MBs.. @_@;

Penta Chain
# Jan 14 2004 at 12:42 PM Rating: Default
OK so if your around lvl 50 sam. and you have Penta thrust, you can do Double>>Penta>>Double>>penta>>double>>.... until the 2hr wears off. and im sure you'll get a hit in there too if need be. Holy Cow thats mass dmg.

Someone mentioned that the SAM 2-hour does not let you build TP while it's active, except for certain situations.

Not much chance of me remembering what those situations are, or where I read this at all, but it might be true.

That's right, it's Meditate that still gives you TP.

N/A name update

This skill is actually called 'Meikyo Shisui'

It's named after a legendary samurai of Vana'diel Gilgamesh tells you about when he gives you the job.

hope this helps

they have just made an update that allows you to gain 300 % tp automatically when you use the 2-hour, reguardless what % tp you had previously. this allows a 3-way skillchain to happen every time (provided you have the skills), and it is a substantial change because if you find out you are losing a battle and have little tp because of a previously used weapon skill or whatever reason, the old version of the two-hour would be practically worthless and you'd probably die. With the updated version, this way, you are guaranteed to hit with 3 weapon skills, and it is rumored that all 3 will go off with the damage quantities as if it was at full power (300%), even if they are used when you have 200% or 100% left.

sorry, i meant to post that as a reply to yours, not a new topic.
How this works
# Dec 11 2003 at 11:53 AM Rating: Default
So this reduces TP costs to 100, right? Which means if you were to have 300% TP, you could use your 2-hour, then crank out 3 weapon skills and do a 1-man skillchain?
Seems like a very particular 2-hour, being useless if you have less than 200% TP. So is that really how it works?
RE: How this works
# Dec 26 2003 at 1:42 AM Rating: Default
4 weapon skills if you do it right.
Full TP before a battle. Crank out a 300 TP use, hit the JA and blow off 3 more.
RE: How this works
# Jan 13 2004 at 7:07 AM Rating: Decent
If you have 2 other players, you could do after a 4-man renkei with Meiko and full tp, you could use Meditate, and 2 others could use some WS that link and then you could do a 5th ws...

So you do 5 ws.. and its 2 7men renkei :P
