Haven't seen anything posted about this in a while so I'm sorry if this topic is already about.

Last night two friends of mine and I went to Stagger Blue!! and brew Shinryu last night. Turned out to be Staff weapon skills which I have them all. Everything was going fine until I finished a solid 6 rotation sets. My two friends and I will swear up and down that all rotations were clean. Mighty Guard was NOT up, he took regular damage during the WS, and he was neither casting, moving or doing a melee attack. I try to spend more time waiting for an open shot than anything.

I'm not sure but it REALLY feels like it's glitched or I apparently forgot how to stagger Shinryu. I find this odd considering before the recent update I staggered him 4 times.

Anyone else have a 0 stagger issue on this guy or have any advice? GM's are being... well, GM's aka useless peons.

I guess it wasn't clean. (It's not glitched)

Wouldn't know what the Stagger weapon type was by chance do you? At this point I'm trying to build a consensus as to what the he** I did wrong.

Delay/Lag/Latency. The timing is sometimes really weird. I usually have to start my WS at the end of his swipe animation so that the effect gets applied 'clean.' If you're starting when he's sitting there idle you may be too late. I've had runs where he's just been a total see you next tuesday and after swearing up and down my rotation was clean and randomly I get the proc.

Not sure, they just mentioned it off-hand. I know they did a ton of runs, though, and never mentioned anything seeming off.

I have a bit of crour saved up so we'll try it again later tonight. While on that note, will paralyzing Shinryu hurt the stagger process? Not sure but one of my friends dual boxed a RDM and Paralyze II stuck like crazy.

Sorry to necro, but I figured it is better than making a new thread.

I am spamming shinryu for a twilight cloak for a mule and am having a terrible time hitting blue !!. I haven't hit it once and have been trying off and on for a few days. I know the that his melee hits count as TP moves, so I always time my WS's until he WS's/casts and then gets in one more melee hit. I generally count to 1 (tried 2 as well) then WS. I am getting them in in a timely fashion and not causing him to regen during open-wing phase. Still can't get it.

Anyone have a tip that helped them when they were trying for blue !! on shin? I've got plenty of experience with him, but this particular run on him has me super frustrated.

Thanks in advance for any tips/suggestions.

Hit the button to WS towards the end of his melee hit. When he's half a second from returning to his idle position, you can proc then.
