This belt doesn't even feel like relic gear, it's so disappointing. I mean, penitent's blows this belt's primary stat boosts away (not so much with the additional int/mnd but the enmity down). As for the other stats, obvoiusly no RDM is going to care about HHP since 99.9% of the time you would only rest long enough to get the MP to cure yourself. Once you realize that, this belt essentially has the following stats:
HMP +4

That's it. That's what we get on our Dreamlands-only 32 person work your butt off Dynamis relic drop. :(
Add in the fact the most of the time (with merited converts and sanction's refresh), I don't even rest anymore and for me this extremely hard to get item has the following stats:
Storage - 1

I'm going to petition SE to please, please, please fix this to be useful in some way (solo or party, I don't care). That, or leave this as weak as it is and add in a +1 version that actually does Something. :/

Sorry, wasn't trying to be a downer.

only thing i can see this belt being good for is maybe tarutaru rdm and humes given the RSE belts add much more MP and INT. only thing i see it being useful for is the hmp. i'm elvaan i use Forest Rope gives me 60mp and +4 INT.

Well I plan on getting pent. rope and hierarch belt, but if I just happen to get this belt when I start doing dynamis(very unlikly I know)then I'd sell pent and hierarch for the couple mil they're worth and just used this, look at it this way, 1 less int, and mnd. BUT +2 more hMP and hHP and score a couple mil to spend on somthing more useful like say getting someone to craft you Snow/Aqua ring or a vishnu's vest, or being a sponser in your Dynamis LS for a better chance of getting relic armor(even thoughif you have this you'll most likely have full relic. Just a thought.

This belt is perfect for focusing on a overall scale on responsibilities of a RDM. resting and casting. People are famous on all servers for swapping equip during battles. There are some people that just use what they got on. if that is the case. I would recomend using this belt.

This drops from Dynamis so obtaining this is not a walk in the park. I already saw a RDM take ginger cookies, dark staff, errant body, Duelist belt and some rare/ex earring that give +1 while resting to obtain maximum regen of MP while for resting. THATS A TOTAL of 25MP extra while resting. (Thats Adds up.)

LOL funny thing is this is the same RDM thAt macros all of it off when he is casting, or fighting, soloing, and exping.

Good luck to anyone who obtains it.
I give it 2 thumbs up.

This this would be it most useful in a resting macro. Espesially if u big on the Nuke Sleep solo Method. all the MP regen u can get is the way to go, also if u /whm and heal.... Mp regen is your biggest help. with all the normal stuff is like +23hmp (Errant, Staff, Cookie, Barron slops, Hierarch) that is really nice but 2hmp more isnt alot but over 3-4 tick can make a diff when soloing on that last nuke or just enough MP to sleep him. Not that im gonna drive for it but would be very nice to have. :)

Not a bad belt by itself, but it's junk compared to a penitent's rope/hierarch belt swap macro.

Personally, I would keep the Duelist's Belt and get rid of the Hierarch Belt. The +48 MP on the Hierarch Belt is (obviously) nice, but the only time your max MP matters is when resting to full. Even then, the +MP only matters when the first spell you cast doesn't swap out another belt. From my experience, when MP actually matters, it's pretty rare for me to get the chance to rest to full, it's usually just for a tick or two, and the +hHP and +hMP would be far more useful for that. I put a higher value on +hMP than on +max MP in general.

The only thing I could see Hierarch Belt being consistently useful for would be optimizing your convert ratio.

Converts yes, would definitely keep the Hierarch.

Hell yeah, you're right.
I'm an RDM 72 and I rarely have full MP.
IMO Hierarch belt kinda pales in comparison against this.
The +MP can be easily be made up with electrums, astrals... Serket.... or do I dare say Vivian's ring.
+MP is not bad pre-41, after that, it's mostly good for converting.
Make your first cure a bit cheaper if not free.

at least you get +2 magic accuracy/attack and magic defence/resistance.
I'd trade in the 1 INT and MND from Penitents for the extra HP and MP a tick.

Maybe my only concern would be the enmity decrease loss. But then again, who would you rather have beaten up, the RDM or the WHM?
I'd rather take a hit or 2 instead of the WHM.
We last a bit longer then them. ^^
