I have merited this and use it well in conjunction with Warcry merits to bring the recast down. Basically from what I have seen the TP effect is similar to a Martial Weapon and only viable during a WS. I know for a fact that no additional TP is earned nor lost with this ability. --Rieul 17:52, 17 June 2008 (UTC)
Does this Job Trait kick in when your effected by someone elses Warcry? -- Illivatur 01:27, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
The effect is applied to the Warcry itself, as it were. If you have this merited, you'll only get the boost to your own Warcry, and another Warrior's Warcry will give you half the TP effect of their Savagery. --Taeria 02:45, 7 August 2008 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. Another question, let's say you used Warcry right, than 20 seconds later a SAM/WAR uses Warcry. Now do you get the full benefit of your Savagery? Or does the SAMs Warcry reduce your Savagery? -- Illivatur 15:04, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
This one is somewhat trickier to answer... I haven't actually experienced this. It might end up being like Protectra V where higher-merited ones overwrite lower ones, or it may be like Bar-spells where strength is of no importance.
If it reads...
Samurai uses Warcry. Samurai gains the effect of Warcry. Warrior gains the effect of Warcry.
Then he replaced your TP-granting Warcry with his non-TP version.
If it reads...
Samurai uses Warcry. No effect on Samurai. No effect on Warrior.
Then your TP-granting Warcry is still in effect, abliet lower remaining duration than his.
Either way, this issue can be solved with some good old communication. If you explain to this hypothetical Samurai the merits of Savagery-powered Warcries, he may be more willing to time them. --Taeria 19:54, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Unless it's been changed by a version update since, as I discovered a few years ago, any Warcry will overwrite the one prior, regardless of character level or whether war is main or sub job. So if you have war subbed, try not to use warcry when it could overwrite that of a war main, as you will cut the attack bonus down, wasting the war's warcry, and removing his savagery buff. --Jakk Frost 17:09, October 30, 2009 (UTC)
