A little late to post about this though, my MNK is at 62 now. But anyways, it’s a strong job but simple playstyle. Most PTs I get into don’t do skillchains anymore. The skillchains I see are just coincidences. Thus, most of the PTs I’m in, I just DD and TP up, then use my WS near the end to avoid dying from grabbing hate.
With /WAR, it’s easy to grab hate even without using provoke or an WS. Even easier if the tank is a NIN. Or maybe I haven’t been with good tanks recently D: . With just a few double attack procs and normal hits at the start of the battle after the NIN vokes, I grabbed hate.
Then after hitting 60, I decided to try /THF. I don’t grab hate as easy as /WAR now with the lack of double attack and berserk. And I can trick attack + WS on the tank at the start of the battle.
On my last PT as MNK/THF, I had a really good PLD tank and an alert THF. After seeing him do Dancing Edge after my Howling Fist for a Distortion SC, I started hitting my “announce TP” macro and so did he. We did lots of skillchains that night.
We were fought colibris and I lost 10 pieces of sushi to it’s “snatch morsel” ability but I was content. It felt like the good old days.
The PLD, even though was doing a good job at holding hate, couldn’t tell that the THF and I were doing skillchain and the THF was SATA-ing on him after so many skillchains. So most of the time, he pulled back hate before the THF could finish his SATA, making the skillchain weaker. Oh well, at least I went 60 to 62 in that PT.
I’m going to reach a level where the Lesser Colibris would check as even match to me before I go skilling up guard again. That would probably be around 66~68.
My Nyzul assault has been pretty rocky. Probably due to bad luck. Out of 4 runs each week, we manage to succeed only 1 or 2 run. Most of us aren’t used to it yet I suppose. Anyway, at the Nyzul portal, there’s a lot of people during JP prime time. It’s starting to get a little irritating spending a lot of time spamming the portal trying to get in.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. Lots more standing behind, lol
That’s all for today. :)
