I've been wanting to dive back into it while waiting for ARR. I missed that game. I need to get at least one job out of the 30's.

donating to the salvation army is a better investment

if you need something productive to do, go clean your toilet bowl instead.

Proccing...depends on which event talking about really. It mainly started in Abyssea related NMs. Certain elemental weaponskills if used on a NM when they are not casting magic or using a TP move will proc a red !! in front of the NM. It will also stun them for 30 seconds. Blue !! is from physical WS and yellow !! is from magic casted on the NM. Red will %100 you get the atma it can drop. Blue yields higher drop rate on exclusive gear the NM can drop. Yellow increases chance of more Artifact armor tier 3 items dropping for +1 and +2 pieces. Also, voidwatch does stagger procs but it's a pretty different system. All in all the very earliest you should worry about anything proc-related is lvl 80. Which can be quite quick to earn if you nab a spot in an abyssea party anytime after lvl 30...

Thank you for this, Maxo.

Although some of my LS mates gave me a brief explanation, understanding just what the ever-loving hell "procing" is has been bugging me for years now.

Granted, I've not done this content yet, but when I'm listening to old, post WotG episodes of LBR (Limit Break Radio), and they constantly say "proc this", or "proc that", I get lost.

I still have so much to learn about XI...lovin' every minute though!
