The page says alligned to breeze gorget, but its only SC property is Scission... shouldn't that read "Alligned to Soil Gorget" then? Orenwald 19:57, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

This weapon skill cannot be used by all jobs with sufficient skill. Upon reaching COR81 I had 290 skill from 4 merits and did not have the ability to use it. Unless this is some error on my end only certain jobs have access. --Fetaru 02:40, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

An update to what I posted above, this weapon skill indeed cannot be used by all jobs with sufficient skill. As COR 85/NIN I had access to it, but not as /WHM or similar jobs with no dagger prowess. I tested and found that I had access to it while subbing all the same jobs that give access to Cyclone, being THF RDM BRD NIN RNG DNC. In a similar test I found that THF/COR and THF/RNG can use Numbing Shot. --Fetaru 23:59, October 2, 2010 (UTC)

Skill level

As THF75 with 8 Dagger merits (285 skill), Aeolian Edge does not appear in WS list. If I equip Love Torque (292 skill), it shows up. Soily 05:10, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

How's damage looking on this? --Nicknick 20:00, June 26, 2010 (UTC)


I was using this on EM-T Eft's in Bibiki Bay, at 100%ish TP it would put out a fairly consistent 260-280 damage, 300%TP it did about 370. --Lukaryu 20:25, June 26, 2010 (UTC)

I tried this WS using main hand Blau Dolch(DMG33) and lolPeeler(DMG24), and they both yield the above stated consistent 260-280 damage. --FFXI-Qubic 19:53, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Yup, it's garbage. May as well have given THF a another Shadowstitch or Energy Drain/Steal... I had hoped this would be something nice like an updated and beefed up Viper Bite (really the only good weaponskill for THF until Dancing Edge), instead it's just Gust Slash with flashier animation, yet the same uselessness. --Dijidl 21:40, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, it's like a beefed up Cyclone, since it's AOE. As such it's particularly useful for either mass farming, or a select few assaults/missions (like the WoTG one where the beastmen are plenty and they're all weak to magic... this will 1-shot a crowd^^)-- Babekeke 16:50, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

It also has uses in Abyssea. When you land kill shot with magical WSs in Abyssea, you get Amber glow, which increases the frequency of gold chest drops, and gives said gold chests better loot. Additionally, NMs in Abyssea have random, always-changing weaknesses, and one such possible weakness is magical WSs. When their weakness is exploited, they sometimes have additional drops, such as the key item that lets you hold 4 traverser stones. --Kyrie 18:50, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, but we already had Cyclone, which does... exactly the same thing as Aeolian Edge. Well maybe Aeolian Edge damage is a bit higher, but it's still low unless maybe you want to carry a MAB set just for this... (I didn't do much testing but I had some fun the other day using Gust Slash/Cyclone/Aeolian Edge against Jailer of Fortitude, and I think Aeolian Edge did a bit more damage. Maybe I had more TP though, since I was receiving Shikikoyo from a couple of SAM's) --Soily 13:02, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

Anyone have damage numbers when you spec out for INT and MAB? I don't really expect THFs to have these sorts of equips, but 80 RDM (275 skill) with 8 dagger merits (+16 skill) should be able to use this, and they're more likely to have that sort of equipment. Most weapon skills will do pretty crap damage when you don't use the right gear. --Chrisjander t/ c 16:27, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

RDM80/BLM40 With 28 MAB, and 76+29 INT did 990 damage to 4 Bees in Salvage, at 300% TP. Without nuking gear, the average was around 400~. With gear brought it up to ~600. At 100% give or take. All of these tests were done fully unlocked in Salvage against bees. Don't know how useful this info is, but it's something?--Aiyana-Bahamut 07:25, August 24, 2010 (UTC)

Range testing

I tried Aeolian Edge out at range (Under 15') to see if would be like Gust Slash or Cyclone, I lost my TP each time I tried so Aeolian Edge is not ranged. --Evagelo 17:10, September 10, 2010 (UTC)
