    Anyone at lvl 70 can help us to test reprisal usefulness? Because i don't see a use in that skill.

    Question about awareness: does awareness nullify enemy direct hits? Are enemies even capable of this?

    Yeah they do, big mobs on Zurvan can crit for ludicrous ammounts and could almost instakill a tank if both mobs decided to crit at the same time. Awareness helped a lot by avoiding those unwanted situations, at least for 20 seconds

    Thanks for the help. I knew enemies crit before (i.e. T9, diabolos hollow, Zurvan, etc) but I wasn't sure if direct hit applied to the enemies. If the enemy's crits have been made to hit harder on account of direct hit, then I think awareness is a must.

    On DRK, in dungeons, I use: Provoke, Reprisal, Anticipation, Rampart, Low Blow.

    On DRK, in endgame, I use: Provoke, Reprisal, Anticipation, Rampart, Shirk.

    I think it's pretty safe to say that you will ALWAYS want: Provoke and Rampart. The remaining three are interchanged depending upon what you'll be fighting.

    To me the first three are required. The fourth is job related and fifth is situational.

    (-needed, +job use, *situational)

    -Provoke
    -Rampart
    -Low Blow
    +Reprisal (for Dark Job)
    *Convalescense, Awareness, Shirk, Anticipation, Ultimatum, Interject

    Now lets say Warrior

    -Provoke
    -Low Blow
    -Rampart
    +Awareness (for Raw Intuition)
    * Ultimatum, convalescence, Shirk, Anticipation (redundant), Reprisal

    Paladin However has Shield Bash so Low blow becomes situational and can be replaced with Convalescence.

    -Provoke
    -Rampart
    -Convalescence (does it apply to Clemency?)
    + Anticipation (extra damage reduction)
    * Awareness, Ultimatum, Interject, Shirk, Reprisal, Low Blow

    Rampart and Provoke are the two must-haves in my opinion.

    From there Reprisal and Convalescence are applicable in basically any encounter.

    Finally, I switch between Anticipation for Dungeons and Shirk for 8-man content.

    If an encounter requires a Stun or Silence, I'd check if I can replace Anticipation or Shirk, otherwise I would likely replace Convalescence with them. If there is an auto-crit phase like Diablos in Dun Scaith, I'd throw likely swap Convalescence with Awareness if I need Shirk; otherwise, I'd run it as my fifth Role Action.
