Decided to play around a bit today and a group I was in wanted to do battle regimens. We tried many times and re-read the instructions over and over and still couldn't get them to go off properly. Has anyone had any success at all with them?
I have a feeling that even if they did work, the time wasted would far outweigh the the benefit. As your trying to fight the lag and set up the regimen just right, the mob is more than happy to eat your HP without resistance. It would have to be a pretty major debuff to just break even, especially when there are easier ways to get similar affects with spells like slow, dia, etc.
So what are your opinions and experiences with this mechanic? Do you think it will go mostly unused much like 2-hours and skill-chains in FFXI? Or is there something I'm just missing and it is actually very simple and will give groups a major advantage against mobs?
