Note that unlike some Limbus mobs, these took normal damage, as shown by my 184 crit, which is on the low side.

Wow, you have a lot of artifacting on your screen, all that text in weird places, you should think about a new video card to clear that up. Wink

What was the saying that popped up around ToAU?

It was along the lines of:

"You cant spell skillchain without kill chain" or something, claiming that skillchains were detrimental to getting chain #9001.

ToAU brought about a damage sausage fest, mainly because your war/nin would want to rampage every 10 seconds, instead of using a skillchainable WS, which wouldn't allow him to do uber damage, not to mention the fear of losing your precious TP when pulling hate off of the tank with auto-attack while fighting birds.

And as nine said, since everyone and their momma was a TP spamming whore/nin, the fail spilled over into non-exp ventures, and skillchaining as we know it became taboo. Skillchains were Pretty much one of the few things that kept me in the game.

Screw you FFXI player base.

That's a bit shortsighted of you, Shef.

In Endgame activities, skillchaining is still very much alive, and in the merit parties where I am, skillchains are pretty common. Not everyone does it, but lots of people chain with me. And in LS meripos it's just normal to do so.

That _some_ people do things like you say is true, but it's not everyone anymore.

And I'm part of said player base, as are most people on this forum. Are you including us in your statement at the end there?

Really, what I'm trying to say is this: If you want to spout off and bitch and complain about FFXI sucking, please don't do it here. Most people here are still fans, still like to play and are quite happy with things.

If you feel different, that's fine, but please don't piss over us by expressing that so loudly on these forums. At least, that's how your post felt to me.

ooo doc i dont think that was his intentions, i think he ment just how ppl these days just disregard skillchaining at the AU regions all together and how he misses the classic exp pt gameplay, anywho yes shef skillchaining are alive and well , just TP burns finally have a better place to call home and popularity has grown because it causes faster imperial standing gain which then inturns to ISNMing which then gets us what we all need..... gil.... fasterish
