So not that it matters, but did FFXIAH decide to close out the Ranking Point System finally? As it no longer lists my rank or friends ranks, and seems to only list #1s in Achievements now?

It's broken again. There are only 9 people with active ranks in the entire game.

Has anyone done Kyou recently and noticed Bravado range being incorrect? Supposed to be 30' and we had to be within 15' of actual Kyou, not player it targets, to get hit by it tonight.

Hi.

Considering RNG and COR, what pieces of Oshosi+1 are considered BiS currently and for what set? Wondering if i should buy some but i didnt see many of them in the sets posted in both RNG and COR forums.

Thanks in advance.

Head+1: best in slot for both jobs while double or triple shot is active.

Body+1: Best in slot for preshot on both jobs without any form of flurry unless you are a gastra ranger. Also 2nd best TP piece for corsair with triple down, and 2nd best for both ranger and corsair with double/ triple up.

Hands: junk as i see em.

Legs and feet: +1 will be best in slot with double/ triple up.

Huh? Sets are posted on 1st page of cor guide. Besides eletta which doesn't exist on ah they are maintained and updated.

There is a section mentioned TS swaps, which tells you exactly which Oshosi is used.

For cor, if you are spamming wf self SCing, and doing very low white dmg with low pdif, hands may beat relic +3 because wf doesn't scale with tp, and 95% ts = ws self sc more often than 91% ts.

But yeah it's way too niche to justify the cost for majority of people who isnt super rich.

What i see from native buff timer is over 5 without nitro and over 10 with nitro.

Calculating, with carn and kali/legato in offhand, honor march should give 5.7s. Without carn but with double kali would be 4.8.

For normal songs gjallar would reduce 12s. Nitro doubles it and indeed with carn you can just sing with nitro.

Depends on the song. Each +1 to song gives +10% duration. Some songs get more "+1" than other type of songs.
Some songs get those "+1" from slot with no other duration options, some other songs get it in slot with concurrent but lower duration bonuses (feet, legs).

You can further extend the duration of songs by going /NIN or /DNC and offhanding a Kali (5% duration).


The longest duration you can reasonably achieve on a song it should be on Honor March (with Marsyas) or Etudes (with Horn).
Technically Etudes with Marsyas would be 10% longer but also weaker so *** that. (I'm also ignoring stuff like Scherzo, Mazurka, Hymnus etc)

This duration value corresponds to 805,6 seconds. That's 13 minutes and 25,6 seconds.

To achieve this of course you need all duration gear, all +song gear, Kali offhand, Clarion Call up, Soulvoice DOWN, Marcato up.
Granted that's not particularly realistic either.
I'd remove 20 seconds from the values I posted above and consider that your currently maximum song duration value, which applies only to Etude and Honor March as I mentioned. All other songs should last ~10% less.

Hope I didn't forget or miscalculate anything! Don't have my BRD lua with me atm.



Edit:
Oh I think Carols can reach the same duration values as Etude and Honor March actually.
Madrigals, March and Minuets ~10% less, Minne ~3% less, Mambo ~5% , Ballads ~7% less, most other songs ~20% less duration approx

Edit2:
Stuff I counted for the above calculation:
50% (Carnwenhan), 30% (HQ Neck), 12% (AF3+1 body), 17% (Inyanga+2 legs), 15% (AF1+3 feet), 5% (Gift), 5% (Kali), 40% (Ghorn) or 50% (Marsyas, only for HM).
Then Madrigals, Minuets, March get a +10% in non-concurrent slots to the gear above, whereas Etudes and Carols get a +20%
Minne/Mambo get +20% but in a slot with 17% and 15% existing duration respectively.
Ballad get 10% in a slot with 17%.

The formula for duration is something like:
(((BaseDuration * BonusDuration) + ClarionCall bonus) * 2 ) + MarcatoBonus

ClarionCall bonus is 40 seconds at capped JPs.
The *2 is of course from NiTro.
Marcato Bonus doesn't get multiplied by NiTro but added after, and it doesn't apply if SoulVoice is active.

hen Madrigals, Minuets, March get a +10%
Mads gets +20 also... back piece + emp

Carols, Etudes and Mads get +9 in gear. Honor March pretty much does too because you get the extra +10% for Mars vs Ghorn for the rest of songs.

Is there a Windower addon that allows you to quickly create timers on the fly?
I've been doing that through the third (custom) window of Timers, through LUA, but I was looking for something simpler/quicker.

Something for when I'm online, I want to create a very quick timer that will play a sound or a chime or a tell when the timer is over.

Something like

//timer 10m

And it creates an on screen 10 minutes timer.
I seem to recall there was something like this, as a plugin, long time ago...

Code
//timers c FillBar 60 up

or
Code
//timers c CountDown 60 down


I believe the "60" is time in seconds.

fillbar/countdown is the text displayed

edit: this does not play a sound though -- you could probably use a wait then chatmon to accomplish it though.

i.e.
Code
alias 60sDing timers c CountDown 60 down ; wait 60 ; chatmon play ding.wav

-> //60sDing

store your wav files in "Windower4\plugins" folder where chatmon.dll is located.

So that's basically still a custom timer with the Timers plugin.
Hmmm...

I guess that works for me though, it's simple enough. Thanks!

Using paypal to purchase crysta is the only thing i can think it will work.

Error 401 isnt anything new and never fixed. Prob you cant use same cc before 1 month. Insisting just will worse the situation

I'm trying to BLU Cleave key items for Orthrus in Abyssea - Altepa. Capped amber. I've gotten around 50 Key Item chests but every single one of them has been either a Resplendent Roc Feather or a Bloodied Dragon ear. Not a single one has been Steaming Cerberus Tongue. I'm literally halfway to making a Rhongomiant at this point.

There's only 3 KIs in this zone and I'm starting to go crazy. Is there something I'm missing?

I should have said "I'm halfway to making a Rhongomiant that I haven't started"

because I got so many dragua scales

Did square enix ever go into detail about the investigation pertaining to the mog Bonanza? The POL info said that it was being suspended. Another said they were investigating but it didn't say what was being investigated.
