Smithy Tries A New Job

A few days ago, I was a little bored, so I decided to try out another job during my spare time.

I was going to try Beastmaster, but then I thought of Pathfinder and realized the flag quest must involve severe head trauma.

Then, I decided on Ninja.

I mean, who the hell is cooler than a Ninja?

Okay... All of you pirates can just shut the hell up right now. Go swab your decks or something, you frilly shirted morons.

Anyway, I soloed my way through the first few levels until I finally got an interesting new spell.

GoblinSmithy>> What's Utsusemi?
GoblinShaman>> Oh, that.
GoblinShaman>> It creates shadows to keep you from taking damage.
GoblinSmithy>> Wait...
GoblinSmithy>> So, they won't be able to hit me?
GoblinShaman>> Nope.
GoblinSmithy>> No one?
GoblinShaman>> No. Nobody.
GoblinSmithy>> You're sure no one will be able to hit me.?
GoblinShaman>> Why do you ask?

And that's when I stabbed him in the face.

Now, those of you who don't know Shaman, I'll give you a little insight.

*whisper* He doesn't like getting stabbed in the face. *whisper*

So, he's standing there holding the bloody ruin that was his face and he took a swing at me.

1 of GoblinSmithy's shadows absorbs the damage and disappears.

GoblinSmithy>> Holy Promathia!
GoblinSmithy>> It really worked!
GoblinShaman>> I'm going to freakin' kill you!
GoblinSmithy>> C'mon, bitch!
GoblinSmithy>> BRING IT!

He took another swing and missed again.

And then again.

I cast Utsusemi again and suddenly, I've got three more shadows.

I was invincible.

He just kept swinging and swinging, and just kept missing and missing.

It was like watching a blind person trying to fight.

Or a mentally handicapped person.

Or a Dark Knight.

I stood there laughing at his pathetic attempts. I was so far beyond him now, he couldn't even comprehend it.

I had just finished casting a new set of shadows, when I see a message.

GoblinShaman starts casting Firaga on GoblinSmithy.

Who was he trying to kid?

GoblinSmithy>> Tsk, tsk.
GoblinSmithy>> Getting desperate are we?

His spell hits and suddenly, all of my shadows were gone.

I was defenseless.

And he was starting to cast another spell.

GoblinSmithy>> HAHA, Loser!
GoblinSmithy>> I'll just make more shadows.
GoblinSmithy>> Utsusemi GO!

Unable to cast spells at this time.

Oh crap.

GoblinSmithy>> C'mon.
GoblinSmithy>> This isn't funny.

Unable to cast spells at this time.

GoblinSmithy>> Ohdamnohdamnohdamn!

Unable to cast spells at this time.
Unable to cast spells at this time.
Unable to cast spells at this time.

GoblinSmithy>> Can't we talk this over?

Apparently, the recast on Utsusemi is 40 seconds.

Unfortunately, an angry, bleeding Black Mage can do a lot in 40 seconds.

If you'll need me, I'll be out getting some skin grafts done.

Oof. Well, unfortunately, can't say you didn't walk into that one. Still, I imagine it must've been fun while it lasted. =P

You might want to look into getting one of those Colibri or whatnot as a pet, at the rate things seem to be going.

lmao! honestly, i think the colibri idea is funny... reflect ftw!! (wow that just sounded completely retarded!! allright!! <.< ) may i suggest the next time you get bored, instead of a new job, try some rank up missions? bring pathfinder n shaman to kill the windy 2-3 dragon!!!

I wouldn't consider the ability Colibri to be called Reflect. Actual Reflect would not let the target be affected by spell.
Colibri are affected by spell which would make the actual ability to be Mimic.
