What is the maximum amount of merits u can put into Blade Bash? Like, how short can I make the recast time? Just thought I'd ask so I can decide whether I should get this ability...

This has shorter range than provoke from what I have tried, infact it was closer to mug range.

suppose its better than nothing and lets you go SAM/THF on a NM for flee but still, provoke has further range and I dont know how it would do against others.

EDIT: oops meant to reply to other one, nevermind....

Kinda long reuse time isnt it?
Stunningly Useless

From my experience, the stun rate on this has been under 10%. Furthermore, the Plague factor has been 100%. Conducted using it 50 times. Basing the Plague info on a message; "(Mob X) is no longer Plagued" This was a waste of 3 merit point, I highly reccomend spending them elsewhere.

from FFXIclopedia:

*Blade Bash is a ranged ability(further then provoke) also you do not need to be engaged to use this.
*Blade Bash does not deal damage and you will not gain TP by using it
*Stun and Plague activation rate are under 50% exact % unknown. However its most useful purpose is for claiming rather then its actual effects
*Each increase in lv lowers recast by 2:30. highest lv is 3 bringing recast to 10:00
leveling up blade bash

Does anyone know if leveling up Blade Bash increases your ability to stun or cause plague? Or, does it only decrease the timer? I learned this ability, and was a little disappointed that it doesn't "always" stun the opponent. Plus, I have no idea if i've caused plague or not. The few times I've used it, it hasn't caused any damage either- I was hoping to use it to gain a few extra TP every once in a while.

This looks like a +1 version of weapon bash... I love being a samurai but god I know we all can't wait untill we can get this stuff :D

what the hell is Plague? Is that like "disease"? The thing that prevents you from recovering hp/mp while healing? These new merit point abilities are awesome as hell.

Plague reduces TP (and mp too) over the time, not that useless.
