Gilgamesh: Enough expository banter!
This talk page is used for discussing improvements to the page "Maelstrom (ability)". It is not the place for general discussion or sharing stories about the topic of this article.

of all the abilities merged into Tornado, Maelstrom probably has the best case to have its own page, as it is sometimes Water elemental. feel free to revert if you agree.

unlike Cyclone (Spell), maelstrom--->tornado doesnt having any link issues. --Adonzo 13:29, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

consensus is that sometimes dealing water damage does not justify a page of its own --Adonzo 07:57, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

That's interesting. ミールストーム == ... meal storm? 00:13, May 8, 2016 (UTC)


I was gonna say it's not "Mill Storm" because mill would likely be ミル. But then IX calls it ミルストーム -- but that's the exception. I don't know why "Mill Storm" would make any more sense. "Mealstorm" is a misreading or purposeful bastardisation of "Maelstrom". The letters are just switched in two places.

Regardless, most of the Japanese internet just seems to say it says "Maelstrom". "ミールストーム" actually shows up on the ja.WP page for Maelstrom as an alternate writing, although I'm sure that alternate writing originated from the FF series.

FFXI: メイルシュトロム.

XIV has an enemy called メイルシュトローム, Waterspout in English. An ability called ミールストーム, Charybdis in English. An ability called 吸引, Charybdis in English. A grand company called 黒渦/黒渦団, Maelstrom in English. A place called 黒渦闘技場, Maelstrom in English. And an ability called 黒渦斬, Maelstrike in English. So compwicated.
