earth staff, cheviot cape, some defense gear in the slots that have heavy values(head body hands legs feet), whatevers around lv50+

buy cure3, cure5, protect or protectra4, regen3, status -nas, a tavnazian taco, and echo drops

easy easy win, you can manage with significantly less than that and 0 skills, but that setup was reliable enough for me to win 8x consecutively

Repose him and wait? You hardly even need gear anymore, do you?

Enter, run up to him, cast Repose. Repose has a huge MAcc bonus so it's almost certainly going to last 90 seconds. Buff yourself while you wait.

When it wears off, cast Repose. Buff yourself while you wait.

Repeat until the fight is over?

Today's 310.70 drivers from nVidia had this in their long list of bug fixes and performance enhancements:




Final Fantasy XIV Online: "DirectX device was lost" crash should no longer occur on GeForce GTX 680 systems




While it's obviously too late for XIV, might be worth seeing if they fix XI's issue as well. Odds are incredibly against that actually being the case, but it may have been a sweeping driver change rather than just for specific software.

How would I be able to get autoexec/spellcast to cause a whm mule to cast dia2 on the target I am attacking from my main character?

I know autoexec can recognize chat commands, so I am sure it is possible.

Dualsend used to be able to do that though I'm not sure if it works anymore but it's worth a look. It can be found here.

There's a program called Multisend aswell, seems to basicly do the same Dualsend does.
No idea where you can download it, but can PM me if you want it.

I've been meaning to try this after finding this thread earlier this year in the Windower forum.

* I should note I haven't tested this yet. *

Basically, you'll need spellcast and DualSend, and you'd use a trigger spell that would more or less
Code
<command>send MuleName dia2 %SpellTargetRaw;</command>

which would (I think) cast dia2 on whatever your main character is targeting. I'm yet to test this though.

Ty for the help, I actually had just put this into my autoexec file and it works.
Code
<register event="chat_tell_*_dia"   >input /assist <r>; wait 1; input /ma "Dia II" <t></register>

But I will poke around with what you mentioned and see how it works. Again thank you.

Can you still get healing magic skill up by curing non-aggressive mobs or was that patched? :/

Can Banish's special defense down be overwritten by itself or do you have to wait for the effect to wear off?
I don't play WHM or anything. Just curious about the answer.

Could also just copy your user folder, in fact I recommend doing so as it's nice to have a backup if your HDD crashes. It holds your settings such as aspect ratio, filters, chat color and all those other options that are so freaking annoying to reset.

Location: C:\Program Files (x86)\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\FINAL FANTASY XI\USER

Just remove the (x86) if you're using a 32 bit os.

Re: Banish's effect, it'd be an easy thing to test. If I have some time later today I can give it a shot.

Try and skill somewhere where you can at least also get loot to take your mind off the slow skillups. Skilling gs/scythe is truly terrible to cap out.

I liked skilling my drk on Aby konschtat saplings, farming dark rings (getting a -6pdt+mdt ring really makes up for the skillup pains). Team up with friends to build azure+amber quickly, then splitup and solo but stay partied to keep the time extensions flowing for everyone.

If you can get a healer/2box, targeting even match or higher monsters helps a lot for skillup rate in my experience as well (see more .2 and .3 skillups ) as long as your skill isnt so bad that you are whiffing constantly.

Looks like it overwrites itself.

My skill is currently 282 on GS (w/ 16 merits and the +3 from gloves...) and scythe is like 228.

I'll try that though, thanks!
