Eh, MP becomes less and less of an issue, club does have MP restoral too, just not as much, but it has AoE and if the whole group has it, maybe it's good enough.

From a casting perspective, sure. But Maxentius has pretty nice melee ability with substantially more DMG (200 versus 150 on Daybreak), 22 more skill, and Acc+40. Plus the Black Halo damage +50%.

If I remember correctly one single croc rdm can parse 30% dmg of entire pt and cor war brd SC dmg do the rest 70%.

RDM has been able to do 30+% of the dmg long before Croc came on the scene in a large variety of content.

Is that you, Snore???

It has to be just the two weaponskills and the qutrub delay display error. I've done some Easy mode runs in a Blu + THF duo with trusts and got Ear, chapeau and gloves after maintenance.

I don't know who Snore is or if it's a joke or a reference to something else.

I'm Torzak from Carbuncle. Being an advocate of all things RDM isn't some secret. I'm probably the first video'd RDM tanking Sky Gods and I maintained a RDM/WAR thread on Allakhazam for some time. In fact, my avatar is of me tanking Suzaku at 75 cap and it was the image I used to sign my TZ Calculator. One of the first extensive damage calculators ever written for this game that included TP per hit based on Store TP & DW, included SA, TA boosts on WS dmg, included Soul Eater boosts on WS dmg, included Enspell dmg as part of DPS and literally on and on. It was very detailed. And while I've never maintained a public copy pretty much since 2007/2008? shortly after I had made it public, I do still maintain my copy. I had 1778 posts on Allakhazam across RDM (probably 95% of my posts), MNK, and THF forums, before I quit posting there. Mind you, some of my content was on Google Video and FileFront. Both died. There's no attempt to deceive anyone for who I am.

The only angle by which *some* people have thought there was a cover up for who I was is as follows:

A RL friend of mine moved to Asura some few years back and wanted me to move to Asura with him. I was "Carbuncle for life" back then. And then later, just over 2 years ago, Carbuncle's population fairly quickly and suddenly and in droves made moves elsewhere, many of them to Asura. So two years ago I moved to Asura. Pretty much a large majority of an LS did. When I moved to Asura I was met with a forced name change. I existed on Asura for some time as Kazrot (Torzak spelled backwards). The RL friend came back to playing close to a year after I moved to Asura and I was pretty confident it was him with a mule. In fact, I had already been telling people that I was sure that was the case, but I lost [personal forms of] contact with this friend since I got out of the Marine Corps in '06 and so I had no way to talk with him or ask him to come back to the game. Anyway, he came back to the game on his own, I asked him about it, and I was correct. Now we're friends on FB lol

So in an effort to get my name back, I created an alt character named Kazrot on Carbuncle, moved my main back to Carbuncle forcing a name change where I got the name Torzak back. Then my friend deleted his mule the night I was moving back to Asura (which he never even used this mule or did anything with).

I've had a few people either message me or emphasize "Kazrot" in a party chat as if they were exposing me for who I really was. It's like, "Dude, I was Torzak long before I was Kazrot... <insert giant explanation)".

I'll include this link as some evidense to support who I am, and my reputation.

I’ve never had a reason to doubt your identity before. But given your response to what was obviously an offhand joke, I’m starting to think you aren’t actually the OG Torzak from Carbuncle.

Snore? Was an obvious offhand joke? It was above my head lol. I don't get it. And why would you doubt my identity because a joke went over my head? That doesn't even make sense.

Here's more attempt to showcase who I am. Some time earlier this year, I think, I edited my signature on Allakhazam to reflect that I had moved to Asura. You can see that in this post on the general forums. This is actually the post/drama for why I quit posting there, tbh.

It's actually funny, because the mod down ranked my posts on that thread into oblivion and the folks who were reading along voted my posts back up out of oblivion. Still, the mod's temp ban was uncalled for and I just quit posting there.

His point was that you're trying really hard to say you're who you are, when the comment was just a reference to someone else that favors DPS rdm and not actually intending to call your identity into question.

The severity with which you're defending it raises more questions than it answers. Regardless, nobody considers Torzak important enough to think you're actually pretending to be them.

Dude. He wrote an Allakhazam guide on RDM/WAR. That is legendary status.

In today's game and even in reality, it's actually fairly meaningless. In the game of yesteryear, it was exciting and fun and it was fun to share the video and see the responses. My real point for mentioning it is because it's my avatar and probably always will be for anything I post in forums. I was using it as an attempt to solidify who I was.

I don't really care if people think tanking Sky Gods as a rdm/war at 75 cap was impressive or not today. Nobody really cares about 2005/2006 era gaming. We're in 2019.

Well, like I already said in a previous post:

Not knowing that it's a players name, a joke intending to indicate that I was boring to read, or a reference to something else, is exactly why I made it a point to try to solidify that I am who I am. Thanks for the clarification that it was another player's name, though.

Snore is more of an inside joke since he always brings melee rdm to everything, then brag about it when he won parses. Appearantly people miss him too much that's why he was mentioned.

I'd just ignore certain post above who were just putting more fuels in the fire. Intentionally or not.

The light elemental damage+50 also works while its on the off hand for say Seraph Blade.

Ahaha, i was that friend who took his name. I came back to the game, and moved to Asura. No major reason other than i missed the game, and a quick google of FFXi population showed Carbuncle was dead, for the most part, and Asura was a big NA server.

I made a Torzak mule, and a Lokian alt (Still use Lokian actually). we were all playing at the same time, and RL friends in the USMC.
Is that the real Torzak? Yep.
Want proof? /tell him in game and ask him ffxi numbers....
I still joke to this day he is a GM, and in parts, part of the Dev team!

Hmm, identity confirmation from an account with only 3 posts whose last post is blank and from almost a year ago? Suspicious, I say, very suspicious!

Ladies and gentlemen, I think we may have a Torzak impostor on our hands! Bring forth the pitchforks! Release the Kraken (Club)!
