ekk, you guys relly like this race? it would be so much better if you could choose Moogles instead!

07-13-2003, 06:39 PM
I heard one reason people choose this race is due to them being short so you get some interesting camera angles when (nearly) underneath certain other female characters :p

07-13-2003, 06:48 PM
Perverts indeed. That's why you play a elvaan and go near the bottom of hills and zoom. A lot less noticeable....errrrr I mean.....ZOINK! *runs away*

Yes... I mean... NO! You sick pervert who would do such a thing!

Don't we all just love the UCS? *grins*

Well, people ALSO choose Tarutarus because they are the best when it comes to any form of magic. So if you're going to be a mage of any sort, (except maybe Red Mages which work for most races) Tarutarus would be the first choice for compatibility.

The camera angles are just a perk.

Actually Tarutaru's only have a higher magic stat then the other races and magic stats only apply more so to black magic. Spirit applies to white magic so tarutaru aren't the best white mages as everyone thinks, Elvaan make the best starting white mage. Tarutaru make better black mages to start.

Actually people choose Tarutarus if they want to master magic. Tarutarus due to their size rely on magic power to help them fight battles. Althought I seen tough little tarutarus as warriors kicking monster butt on livecam from time to time.

07-24-2003, 02:58 AM
Elvaan make the best starting white mage

Yea, but I think they have very little MP in comparison to a Tantaru. I need to take a look at that stat calculator again..

07-24-2003, 03:18 AM
True they do have less MP compared to Tarutaru but their white magic related stat (I beleive it's Mind) is higher then a Tarutaru so their white magic will have more of a effect.

08-04-2003, 05:47 PM
I personally intend to create a character with high strength toughness and magic defence just so I can charge around pointing at Tarutaru and yelling "DIE RABBITS" while cutting them down. If they had been more like dwarves or goblins or such then they would be quite a good race, but small pointy eared children? I'm a teenager, I hate children.

I wouldn't even take a Taru to look up skirts, my heart is still with Nuvy Ronso RAWR!

08-05-2003, 02:13 AM
Well from my stand point i have more MP and the effect isnt important to me since its pretty much of a high effect as it is. The Spirit is also high but even though its not as high its high enough to be good. Plus WHM need ALOT MP, its their lifeline.

09-01-2003, 11:41 PM
I never really realized how much of an advantage the tarutaru had in their small size..... such wonderful views...

*drools and tosses away other character designs*

...I suppose their magic abilities are a plus too.....umm....right.

09-01-2003, 11:47 PM
Well MP is the life of a mage, so Elvaans dont work well as mages with little MP and the effect is easily boosted with a necklace in Windurst(easy quest) for +3MND. More MP is more better than effect.

*agrees with Lionx*
As a 25 whm, it is way more important to have the extra MP... people look down on WHM's of any race aside form Taru. Saw a Mithra WHM that was 3 levels higher than me, and had 60 mp less! Thats 3 rounds of cure2 and a Paralyze that I'd have over her! and thats at a much lower level! By the time I caught up to the same level, I had close to 100 mp more and that was with Warrior as a sub... if I had BLM as a sub it would be closer to 130 more... that is a MAJOR difference.

*goes back to leveling*

Some people in this room have some maturing to do. Anyway based on the experience of those who have played the game, what are effective job class combinations for the tarutaru? I'm thinking about being a white mage as primary with black mage as secondary. Will that work well?

09-03-2003, 07:48 AM
Well, you'd probably be best to start off with Black Mage for your job, but you can really do whatever you like. Remember there's no "best" job, it's how you use it that counts. I'd like to go melee Tarutaru, just for a challenge.

09-03-2003, 08:17 AM
White, Red, and Black mages are the Taru's best classes. But with the proper training any job can be fine tuned for their race, its just not as popular with parties thats all but a WAR taru can provoke right and do similar dmg as an Elvaan one.

09-03-2003, 09:19 AM
Well I personally would love to see a melee based taru. Wouldn't neccessarily want to be one, but the sight of it would be so cool!!

Especially something like a taru dragoon....

Would it really be possible for those legs to jump like that?

And by "cool" I mean rediculous...:D But I would still like to see one.

I'm going for Taru Paladin, so I'll send a pic

09-03-2003, 09:47 PM
That would be cool.

What's it's sub job gonna be? Are you getting the paladin for the extra defence as a mage?

If so, you'll have to let me know how that works out.

Tarutaru's are just the ho's of Vana'diel *nods* Just look at the attached picture to see the truth of it all =O

Powerpoint is a microsoft program... it allows you to make a slideshow, and if done correctly you can make an animation.

It's good for presentations too as you can present your info in an easy to see form to many people at once.

I hope this cleared it up for you... lol

And yeah... that's funny :D
