10 years ago when maximum nuke was like 8k it was a blip.

Now its the difference between first and last in a parse.
It's still the same percentage, and when the difference between first and last in a parse is 1%, it's not a big deal

up to 30%, not 1%, actually up to 50%

Nuke on watersday with rainstorm and a fire nuke, you're losing a -ton- of damage.
Um you're gunna have to show the math on this

Double weather day + 30%
Neutral 0%
Wrong day double weather -30%

No math required.
First off if you miss a game day change that's on you. 2nd earth day cones after fire so that's double on you for missing an entire hour. No game day change outside of light/dark will switch you from strong to weak. 3rd you'll have to show me the zone that more often then once a Gabriel decade goes straight from double one weather to double an opposite element

Ok guys everyone who want to continue QQ about SMN I created a topic for you ( https://www.ffxiah.com/forum/topic/51947/stop-offtopic-elsewhere-and-qq-about-smn-here-ty/1/#3324731 ). Go there please and keep it going if you want. Lets clean this topic to Ambuscade related things only.

Simon said it .. but no one does it. /giveuponthread. I'll check back in later .. around page 7 when the derail has ended (perhaps).

It's not a matter of whether -you- can and are willing to pay attention.

The majority cannot, will not, and won't ever.

The topic was whether it was possible for anyone to do it, not that it was possible for the greater player base to do it.

So, tried this with the SCH+RNG+BLM Fusion > TF > MB, DMG is fine (On easy anyway) The only thing i can see for the huge AoE is it works like Pain Sync, when it reads he is boiling over, we stopped dmg, until he used the AoE, dmg was minimal, when he was boiling over and we done SC+MB he AoEd for 54k, it didn't hit past 20.1 though, continue. leave Ixion alive, kill at end. Don't have time to try on D right now but if someone wants to test the Pain Sync theory on D+, that would be great.

One person can make a billion dollars overnight. Is that a viable solution for everyone?

No, but that's irrelevant if the topic being discussed is "is it possible for a person to make a billion dollars overnight".

I came here looking to see how people are doing with the new Ambuscade, but I have to wade through all the crap to find anything related to the topic.

Has anyone figured out a working strat yet? And yes, I don't care if it does, or doesn't require summoners .. I just want to know so I can get my group together for some fun tonight.

It's been posted already, *** mechanics and use SMN.

Few Notes that needs confirmation from others:
*RUN is great on this.

Retributionist [Endark,Stun,Aspir,Soul Eater]

-Nether Castigiation [After Boil Over Message][Safe 20']
-Eisenschneider [After Miasma Message][30'?]
-Atramentous Libations [AoE dispel for multiple random buffs, re-apply buffs after it][Also Hate reset]

Takes 50% less damage from all sides? When "Charger" Is alive and possibly 90% from front.
Do NOT cast any enfeebling magic on it at all or else it starts charging.
--------------------------------
Ranger Setup works but focus on white damage only.
MB setup works too but we did it without a GEO and it was slow.
The amount of WS's done seems to trigger messages that gives it access to its AoE.
So possibly just mele zerg with activated AM3 Empy on "Charger" will be enough to down it.
--------------------------------
Charger has [Enlight][High Double Attack Rate and Forced Criticals]

-Atramentous Oblation
-Scintillant Lance [Conal High Damage] [Foil,Scherzo works]
-Ramparnt Stance [Stun,AoE Magical?damage]
-Damsel Memento [HP restore]
-Grace of Hera [Full Erase, and absorbs damage during this move]
The Key to kill it as fast as possible is to keep it locked in [Grace of Hera] Mode by spamming enfeebling magic, just dont ws while its doing TP.

Thank you! I was struggling to come up with some strategy how to complete the 500+ damage RoE. This looks legit!

Wrong thread...

Makes his own thread, can't be bothered to use it and stay on topic after bitching about offtopic

If you cant even do it who will we look to for guidance.

If you want to instantly get killed, you can.

Idk most of KO mechanics usually seems to only work in E-VD. Anyone tried to do VE with straight melee zerg?

EDIT: I tho pony isnt even there on very easy, so there is no Lance to hit me for 8k.

Dullahans have VERY high block rate, intimidation, very strong AoE

It may be possible to do VE I feel like it would take an unreasonable amount of time (if there is no unicorn)

No, but with sufficient attention, skill, and preparation, you can get VERY close (with a few exceptions, like having quick magic in pre-cast but not mid-cast).

Asura.Geriond said: »
No, but that's irrelevant if the topic being discussed is "is it possible for a person to make a billion dollars overnight".

You are suggesting that if it is possible to make very close to a billion dollars in one night-ish then that is as good as having a billion dollars, guaranteed, every night, automatically.
It isn't equivalent. If it isn't equivalent it isn't the same. And no amount of attention, skill or preparation will make one as fast or reliable as Windower. Which is why people use Windower.

No pony on VE, so damage from Lance is irrelevant.
