I blame California. And Oklahoma.
I blame all the drugs in northeast Ohio.
I'm pretty sure the majority of our rain water is a straight mix between heroin and fentanyl around here.

Question about Vinipata.
When he pops, which stance is he on?
I've heard people saying different things like:

1) He's always in Raksha stance on pop
2) He's randomly on Raksha or Yaksha stance on pop
3) He's in a "special" stance with properties of both stances (50% PDT, 50% MDT) until he uses his "xxx: Stance" the first time, then swaps to that specific stance

Who am I to trust?

Honestly, I never worried about it. If you want him in magic damage, just spam enfeebles, he'll switch. If you want melee damage, don't do more than 2-3 enfeebles from all sources- this includes bard debuffs, elemental enfeebles, anything.

Impact is useful if you quickly want him in magic mode.

Edit- based on observations of our past 3, which were all melee, I can't recall damage being less at the beginning than once he uses an official stance. I'd wager he starts in melee damage mode.

He "starts" in neither. He only has a mode when a stance is used.

His AI periodically checks environment conditions and then decides to do a mode change or not.

If target has three or more dispellable buffs -> Mode Change -50% MDT
If self has three or more erasable debuffs -> Mode Change -50% PDT

If he's already in one mode and the conditions for the other mode are present then he'll change to that mode. Essentially it's not possible to "lock" him in -PDT mode by piling debuffs as his trigger for MDT is the target (tank) having three or more dispellable buffs. Instead your tanks need to have less then three dispellable buffs. For ranged / melee strategies, just don't have more then three erasable debuffs on him (flash counts) and he'll never use that mode.

2) He's randomly in either raksha or yaksha stance after pop.

Also, a burt PLD can survive fine with only food and cureskin(just cancel sent/rampart/etc immediately after using them and use them during a tp move). The AI doesn't check environmental conditions constantly from what I can tell, the conditions are just checked when using a TP move and he won't select stances if they are not met.

So if using a magic strat, just wait for the first tp move, if its a raksha WS spam debuffs, otherwise bolster and drop it.

Yeah that's what I've seen tank him the most, Burtang + Aegis with DT/HP gear and the PLD is pretty much invincible.

My actual stance (swear no pun intended, its late) that it starts is melee mode is based purely on the observations of a RDM who doesn't filter damage- yes I see the numbers, but take it with a grain of salt- I'm not up there dealing damage with only mine in view where a change from opening to an "official" stance would be clearer. In addition, if #2 is the answer, its entirely possible in my limited example of 3 runs we just got "lucky" per se.
