    Hydro Pull and Hydro Push reversed?

    The first boss of the Drowned City of Skalla seems to have his attacked names mixed up:

    "Hydro Pull" pushed us away while
    "Hydro Push" pulled us in.

    Have they been accidentally switched?

    Yeah it's weird....I've chalked it up to bad translations, similar to the second boss of The Temple of the Fist.

    Kelpie clearly needs to be taught a lesson in physics.

    On the serious, I think we can safely call it an oops in the EN entries.

    Compared to the other languages, it is reversed. This is an ENG localization mistake.

    http://xivdb.com/action/9809/hydro+push (other three languages says contract or suction or pull)
    http://xivdb.com/action/9810/hydro+pull (other three languages say push or thrust)

    EDIT: Ironically, I reversed the links lol. Fixed now.

    The second boss in the temple of the fist is actually correct. The names indicate where he will attack (which areas you don't want to stand)

    I know it's correct, but it's still a bad translation. Other languages simply use front / side and English gets screwed over.

    That's true but sometimes English names are easier. For instance, in A6/A8, the debuffs names are Low / High arithmetiks when in the other 3 languages their names are the equivalent of Arithmetiks 1 / 2.

    Yeah they got the translation mixed.
    I play on JP client, and my guildies plays on EN client.
    I was wondering why they were going to the opposite way until we figured out that they got the EN side wrong lol
    They need to fix this. Haha.

    Going to be honest, this is an embarrassing error. Did they even proofread, let alone playtest?

    I actually ended up thinking this was intentional as a "LEL YOU THOUGHT".
