Try repairing your weapon?

I was having a problem in which I would start attacking, and then I would hit once and not be able to attack again. So I would have to wait.. and wait.. and finally i could attack again after the mob hit me 3 or 4 times. It's very odd.

First make sure you are in active mode before attacking the enemy. Second, their is a minor bug that can cause you to be stuck on a different ability. Try to disengage, go to passive mode, and re-engage. If that doesn't work try un-equipping your weapon and re-equipping. Thirdly try logging out then back in.

I think it's a bug they need to update.

I had something sorta similiar happen to me yesterday.

I was harvesting and then all of a sudden i could do anything. i was standing there, hunched over while standing. My weapon(scythe for harvesting) was on my back. i couldnt do anything except talk and run around. I couldnt bring up main menu, i couldnt logout with /logout, i couldnt emote, attack anything. So I Alt-F4d and logged back in. Same thing! I tried to more times, ran around the city and couldnt walk through any doors. Finally 4th time I log in I hit F to go to passive mode ( after I already had my weapon on my back ) boom. My character stood up straight and everything was fine.. Weird.

On another note, I have been constantly playing with ffxi config because I was crashing like crazy. Finally I found (for my computer) 1920x1050 was the most stable. I have to crash anymore and FPS is the steadiest.

My wife had the same problem with Pug. When we looked at the chat log, she actually was "attacking" but it said that her attack didn't connect, but was really worded weirdly, and the text was blue, like that of You can't perform this action at this time... And it was happening about 90% of the time for her, she couldn't level at all.

On a side note, not sure what the crazy symbol is to the left of your first ability, but if you hit that, your attack is disabled for about 10 seconds, and greyed out. Then it takes forever once it comes back before you can attack again (I kept clicking attach and nothing would happen, if I wasn't partied, I would have died).

I played with that for a while, and never found a use for it... We assumed it would cause your next attack to be stronger, but no, it was actually weaker each time... go fig.

I could be wrong, but I think that has something to do with the Battle Regimen system.

Add me to the list, safe to assume its a bug. Probably caused by server lag of some sort...
