I added the ".5" to 12%, which many people make a misconception about. To back it up, I just boosted 4 times. Base attack was 190, post boost attack was 285. a difference of 50% base, or 12.5% multiplied by 4.
Did they changed Boost to Level 6??? I continued my MNK (he already was level 5) but I didn't have Boost in my Abilities List, nor could I use it through my macro... Subtle Blow (also level 5) was there. After some monsters I hit level 6 and then I got Boost. Did they changed it, or was this more some kind of server-delay... mentioning that Sublte Blow was already there. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Haitani (talk • contribs).
If you saw Subtle Blow on the list you were looking at, then you were looking at the wrong list. Subtle Blow is a Job Trait; Boost is a Job Ability. --FFXI-Setesh 08:08, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
I have long believed and been told Boost lowers accuracy for your next melee round. My question is concerning using boost prior to Asuran Fists and in turn landing less hits. Has anyone tested this? I am currently recording all my ws results (boost used and tp return vrs no boost and tp returns). I will post back once my sample size is 1,000+. --Boner 07:26, 26 September 2010 (UTC)
