keep dreaming

SE wouldn't give a 20 minute ability that had a chance to reset a 2 hour ability. In the same aspect they would not give a 2 hour ability that could reset 2 hours as well as reset itself, so you can reset 2 hour abilities again... think like SE -_-

although a COR 2hr cant reset itself, when the number 6 is rolled on the cor's 2hr, "wild card", the parties 2hours will be reset

20 minute recast blows, but if you don't have any other practical use for timing it (like Convert, Activate-Call Wyvern-whatever), you can use it immediately after a busted roll to try and Phantom Roll again, 2nd chance style.

Of course, that only applies if Rnadom Deal resets Phantom Roll. And don't be too fast (i.E- 7 seconds)-- having Random Deal reset your "Double Up" ability will make you want to shoot yourself.
In the face.

Yeah... any chances to reset 2hr effect? It would be awesome. If yes,does COR's 2hr have the same effect?

The fact that my party's COR used random deal whenever possible, and that it took less than 2 hours for my 2hr to recharge, lends quite a deal of credibility in my book to this possibility.

Yes. It does reset 2-hour abilities, but it can also reset abilities that don't have any timer on them. So it might choose Divine Seal, which had a 0:00 timer on it, over Benediction which has a 1:45:30 timer left. Then again, there's a chance it will pick benediction. Still, every 20 minutes to get a chance to AoE reset job abilities is nice. SMNs really get a kick out of CORs, because of Astral Flow and Blood Pact. We had our SMNs Leviathan tank a Catoblepas in Bibiki after using two BPs in a row after Blood Pact got its timer reset. It was funny to see.

I don't believe this resets 2hrs, although Cor 2hr does have a chance to reset them
2 hours

So if this ability can reset other people's JA's, does it also have a chance of resetting someone's 2 hour?
