    Welcome to Forum: In-Game Bugs!

    The purpose of this forum is to collect reports on issues that users have experienced in the game. To make FINAL FANTASY XI a better game, we would like to ask for your cooperation.

    Development and operation teams will regularly monitor this forum and will give feedback on reported issues after they confirm the details. The thread will be locked once feedback has been made on the reported issue. In case there is insufficient detail included in the report, we may make a response asking for more details to be added.

    Please carefully read and adhere to the following rules and FINAL FANTASY XI Forum Guidelines(North America/UK) before posting.

    Example:
    Thread Title: While under the effect of Slow , Backhand Blow will not initiate

    Platform: Windows
    ISP: Optimum Online
    Type of Internet Connection: CATV
    Internet Connection Speed: 15Mbps
    Date & Time: Feb. 6, 2011 21:42 EST
    Frequency: Once (did not reproduce)
    Character Name: Ffximike
    Race: ElvaanM
    World: Alexander
    Main Job: Monk, Lv.80
    Support Job: Ninja
    Area and Coordinates: Pashhow Marshlands [S], J-9
    Party or Solo: Party with 4 members
    NPC Name: None
    Monster Name: Croque-mitaine
    Steps:
    1. We were camping in Pashhow Marshlands [S], waiting for the NM Croque-mitaine to spawn. At around 20:30 EST, it spawned.
    2. About 8 minutes into the battle, the NM used the weapon skill “Blow” and my character received the effect of Slow.
    3. About a minute later, the TP gauge of my character became 100% and I attempted to initiate “Backhand Blow” by using the macro(/ws < Backhand Blow > < t >).
    4. However, the effect of Backhand Blow didn’t appear and wasn’t displayed in the log and the TP gauge remained the same.
    5. Attempted to initiate Backhand Blow again by selecting it manually from the battle menu but the result was still the same.
    6. We finished off the NM with Garuda’s “Predator Claws” that our Summoner has summoned.
    7. I fought the same NM at around 19:20 EST on Feb. 1st, 2011 but at that time, I was able to initiate “Backhand Blow” even when “Slow” was in effect.

    *Please note that this is an EXAMPLE only and is not an actual bug report.
