    I hope people still see this forum. >_>

    Anyway, yesterday I mentioned seeing a thread about PUP on JoL, and Magos mentioned I should post it so people could check it out. So, here it is. It's a description of 2 JoL fights by one PUP.

    Quick summary: BLM puppet on adds did a bit lower damage than an actual BLM, but still put out respectable numbers. Melee puppet did better damage than the other melee on JoL, and it interrupted JoL's spells very often (2 puppets caused it to almost never cast successfully).

    Another article I bumped into was on Proto-Ultima, but it doesn't have nearly as much detail. I'm including it in case people find it interesting. Summary: puppet melee damage was comparable to other melee; /drk for stuns or /whm for raise, etc. may be more useful than /war trying to do damage.

    Spell interrupting is a big thing, it's how most melee burns work. Makes me wonder what a pair of PUPs would do to kirin, hmmmm....

    Amazingly, and even better if he's kited. Pets actually follow a kited mob's path perfectly, so its not out of range ever, unlike a melee, who actually follows kited mob + latency's path.

    Guess I should put a higher priority on recapping my puppet's skills and putting some merits into pup.... >_>

    I had a conference call this morning, so had to be up early for it. I'll have another on Thursday, but thankfully this happens only once every 6 weeks. ^_^
