It's been a while since I had a look here! Let's go one by one...
Not sure if this is covered or not but after reading the ws/sc addition, I think it's also important to note that on nasomi, closing a skillchain gives the added skillchain damage to the person who used the closing ws. I'm unsure if the emnity from that damage is tricked onto a trick attack target or not, but as a pld closing with a hefty swift to make darkness will give you emnity for the 400 swift blade and again for the 400 darkness skillchain damage. Just #nasthings enjoying the read keep up the good work^^
Thanks for the comments! I read them a while ago and I was able to fool around with it a bit. I haven't done exhaustive testing, but it definitely seems to be the case! I would still advocate for full on accuracy when closing a SC, if anything just to ensure the MBs can actually happen.
Please list the items in each set. I can't discern just by looking at them yet.
And TY, I've gone from knowing nothing about PLD/NIN to well on my way.
Glad it helped
You have all the items listed at the start of the original post, under "Resources". You also have them individually linked under "Equipsets and Macros".
Very nice guide. Thank you. I never played PLD on retail but wanted to give it a try here. Learned so much about the job. I have a question though. Is taru PLD as some people say, not that great? I always wanted to level a taru PLD but hearing people say it's pretty crappy is kind of discouraging.
Taru PLDs are just as viable as any others. Sure the HP pool is lower, but that will only be a problem during XP (Pecking Flurry is going to suck). In endgame, you won't be taking enough damage that will one-shot you, aside of the couple extreme events posted in the guide itself - and that's why you have a specific gearset for those! If anything, Tarus excel over other races at gaining initial hate, as you can spam C4 and C3 at the start of a fight without it affecting your mana pool as much as Galka or Dhalmels like myself. After the first couple of rounds of C4s, though, max MP won't matter much - at which point you can macro in Cassie Earring if you feel you might take a beating.
Hope this helps!
