Final Fantasy XI (FFXI) Ballista

FFXI Ballista: Vocal Remarks

This is just a quick update, so yea.  Evv and I were having some conversations on Skype regarding Ballista.  Little did I know, that bastard recorded and uploaded parts of the conversations on Youtube.  After I threatened to sue him for recording me without my consent, we decided to work on a casual and improvised demonstration for ranger WS execution in Ballista, as it was one of the previous topics of discussion.  Links to the videos are provided below.  I realize that I sound stoned in the recordings, but as many of you may have suspected, I’m a full time stoner in real life.  Don’t be surprised.  Anyway, enjoy.

    I think there’s a lot more to be said in video format. Youtube seems to be a good way to relay information, so please let me know if you have any ideas, or would like to join in on the coversation.

      So basically, ranged delay is 50% faster. Ex: E.bow feels like lamian kaman’ish. Re-engaging after disengaging to quarry is almost instant, and protect is a lot more beefy, EX: protect 3 gives 100 defense instead of 50.

        Ranger got beefed even more so sadly.. but the re-engage delay and protect buff is pretty nice.

    me and jsp testing it now. (RNG with v-shot on)
    old aureole speed = new aureole speed (no noticeable difference)
    new leo crossbow+1 speed = old aureole speed (no joke)
    new lamian kaman+1 speed = about same as new leo+1, so same as old aureole
    new eurytos speed = old lamian (like you said evv)

    tested again (RNG with no v-shot)
    eurytos has longer shot time (as expected with no v-shot) but still no after-shot delay.
    no noticeable diff between v-shot leo+1 and non v-shot leo+1
    no noticeable diff between v-shot lamian+1 and non v-shot lamian+1
    aureole is pretty much the same as before, and the same speed as lamian and leo

    hell bolt/arrow spam inc. shit going to get expensive, buy while you can.

    RNG gonna be banned in hako if the JP have any sense at all. v-shot e-bow rng is just outrageous. OM gonna be full of them soon enough and some people aren’t gonna put up with it =/

      Did you guys do some tests on re-engaging? It felt pretty quick for me.

      Also, I agree, RNG has been far too powerful.. I can see OM’s being invaded sadly.

    yea re-engage after a shot will be faster since that delay is pretty much gone now.

    despite rng getting even stronger, the update helps war,drk become a bit more interesting. its a bit reminiscent of old siren, bolting is more of a threat.
