Creates a designated area in which party members will only suffer 90% of all damage inflicted.


Just say it's a 10% f***ing damage decrease. Why all the excess wording?
You think that's bad?
Check Lucid Dreaming's additional effect.
No explanation as to what "Refresh" is/does for newbies.

lol ya, coming from ffxi, it is just second nature to know refresh = mp recovery per x amount of seconds. They take it for granted every one has some kind of experience in gaming. As I said in a different thread I have met people in ffxiv that was new to gaming as a whole so the def exist.

i started playing this when it came out, it is at the time not friendly to people whose first MMO is this game. When i started playing as a lol drg, i had no idea why people were yelling at me to not go ahead, i had never heard of a "tank" before or what aggro/enmity is. It assumed that you already know.
Had to google a lot of stuff to understand wtf the game meant.

It's the same thing with the Ninjitsu, Suiton. Suiton deals water damage and grants the caster the status effect of Suiton. Suiton = ????

Apparently it's too hard to say Suiton deals water damage and grants the caster the ability to use Sneak Attack without being hidden.

I still see Ninjas in the 60+ level rous and 70 dungeons not ever using suiton and trick attack.
