Final Fantasy XI (FFXI) Ballista

Ballista Commentary

So, I uploaded a Lakshmi vs Fenrir Diorama match with a commentary included.  Hopefully, it’ll be able to help some people out.  I don’t have much to say here, but now you can listen to my rants instead of only reading them.  I sound stoned, but, hell, maybe I was stoned at the time.  Even I don’t remember.  Anyway, if possible, let me know if it’s all right because I may decide to continue with commentating.  Constructive criticism is also welcomed.  Please and thanks.  Much appreciated.  Peace out.


• At 7:44, I meant to say that planning for a “skillchain”, not “weapon skill”, could be worse than using your weapons skills at the same time.

• It’s usually better to participate in the fights and help your teammates score instead of only focusing on yourself, trying to be a hero and score 5 petras in at once.  Assuming that your other three teammates have one petra each, they have a considerably higher chance of successfully scoring.  Even if one or two of them die, at least one of your teammates will most likely get his petra in.  After all, it’s much harder for the enemy to stop three people from scoring than stopping one.


I do apologize that I lose my train of thought and go off talking about something else.  There’s just so much happening at once that it’s easy to lose track of what I was originally saying, especially when I interrupt myself.  If there’s anything that needs further clarification, please let me know.  I’ll be more than happy to provide a clearer explanation.
