It's the dual-wielded swords that make it work so well... What is that the Joyeuse and Enhancing sword...? lol. Regardless this is a very pimp screen shot for the one and only "pimp hat"!

I got mine tonight, along with two other rdm LS members. :)

It was easy!! We just had the three rdms, one whm (all level 60 and under) - and one 75 NIN.

The 75 NIN soloed Miser Murphy and the Guardian Statue with absolutely NO trouble at all. We were there to heal and basically just watch him. It was awesome. :)

Easily one of the most viable peices of our Armor, with the enhanced fast cast and higher Elemental magic.

Man all you people bringing a whole milita to the poor old doll....

All i brought was my 75 NIN friend Carlosx and a 61 WAR bored out of his mind running around killing Borer beetles... the bored do not do logical things i guess.

Well no one got into the Red, could have easily taken it with just Carlosx and me.

I am now a happy owner of a shiny new Warlocks Chapeau. All thanks to Carlosx. and the bored WAR named umm.... Pandy. this is all on Hades

Hi, I'm a 58 RDM/BLM and would really LOVE to get this hat before I hit 60 so that I can wear it first thing =D Are there a few people on the Bahamut server that would be free to help me sometime with this quest? I don't have an LS that would be able to help with this since it requires pretty high lvls, but would appreciate it very much if there were other people willing to help. Thanks in advance!

Did this yesterday, was easy as a walk in the park.

Setup was:
RNG75/NIN37
SMN75/WHM37
WHM75/BLM37 (me)
DRG72/WAR36
MNK72/WAR36
PLD65/WAR32 (Galka, tanked both easily with 1.3k HP)
RDM60/BLM30
RDM59/NIN29 (Me also)

Murphy was nothing out of the ordinary, took about 3 minutes to take down. The doll though with it's AoE was nasty, did not take long to kill but most of the people there went into red HP several times because of it. As odd as it may seem, the second doll fight was much easier than the first, noone went into red and only two people went yellow HP once.

I'd say SMN could solo Miser Murphy but the doll would require more.

Atleast now two RDM's on Cerberus has this pimp hat, including myself woot.

When I first put it on in Gustav Tunnel, I immediately noticed how much faster my casting became. It was like a glitch or something...kinda like those modded turbo Street Fighter II machines from the mid 90's. Before, I was able to cast every enfeeb in the book, haste a melee, refresh X4 and MB every SC, and never run out of mp. Now I have more time to get back even more mp...my job feels a whole lot easier. And I look like a pimpette...especially with my RSE2.

I did this quest exactly a week ago... afer reading all the forms here, i decided to skip looking for an allience and hire mercenaries!! (*'-')b

snaged in a lv. 73 nihon-jin NIN and she/he took out both NMs with no problems. Miser Murphy was a push over, even after seeing him nearly defeat a 73PLD and 75 DRG which kinda puzzles me to date, but then again i guess eva. is the key factor for that battle.

The doll wasnt hard either, 10 minute battle, of course i couldnt just goof off like i did with miser murphy lol so i had to haste and heal, nothing big though. Except that AoE was really annoying, kept knocking out stone skin and i eventually decided to forget about it lol.

total cost was 106k... +6k becuase the teleport. my advice is get some gil, shout out a price around 50k, then negociate if you can find a nin or rdm/nin. beats shouting / spamming jeuno for days or a week.

NIN is the way to go. The reason a PLD would/almost die is because of Blood Weapon and Ancient Magic. Utsusemi takes care of both of these problems.

My little story

36 posts
Damn just got me hat tonight and boy I tell you it was a long trip. All I can say is….make friends, make friends, make friends. Here is my story.

Part 1 Miser Murphy:

This ghost is a pain in the a@#. I went there with a full alliance (levels 59-63). We went there for both Redmage AF and White mage AF. This damn thing was all over the place. And its drain spell = >.<. All and all we beat this think like 5-6 times. (Word of advice), make sure you know the Redmage’s your doing this with. There was a Redmage in the party who had not activated the quest, lotted on the coin, and won. Since his quest was not activated. Miser Murphy stopped popping so one Redmage got left out >.<

Part 2 Guardian Statue

Don’t believe the hype. This thing is a push over. Went there with a PT of 4. 75 Ninja, 55 Monk, 59 Redmage, and me 63 Redmage. I was in Jeuno shouting for a level 70+ DD (you can have this), 100k for about 30 mins. The Ninja BIT$&…. Slapped this thing around no prob. Could have done this with just him and me. (Word of advice), rent yourself a Ninja for this part of the quest and just keep him hasted and cured.

G-Luck

I did this quest today, let's see, I had about a level 65 RDM (Dehlila), 75 PLD (Macer), 70 WHM (Hikiri) and a 68 RDM (Quasi) [Thank you guys!!] anyways, we were traveling into Fei'yin and then we saw Miser Murphy. Of course, we tried to make him run around the place chasing the PLD, as we nuked him while he had gravity on...the shocking thing was I had to use Dispel on him about 5 times to take off his ice spikes...we got fed up and took him head on, big mistake, we died, waited a while for raises and went at him again, this time with a thief, we defeated him, ran to the other place, killed him and then the cut-scene...it's very sad how it all went down-- but who cares!? I got my hat! woo! Tough-tacos to all that do not have it yet~! (j/k) :P

Hello all. 59 rdm here from Shiva. Just got my hat. But the thing is, I another rdm 60 in my party also got it. We tried doing stoneskin and refresh at the same time after he put it on and it seems to be the same casting time. I thought it was going to reduce it by half or something. whats going on? It doesnt seems to enhance fast cast at all? any info on this?
Thanks

The fast cast effect is very subtle. When casting a spell the cast length is decreased as well as the time between casts. A lot of information can be found here: http://ffxi.allakhazam.com/db/spell.html?ffspell=421

Quoted from Lobrau on the attached link:

"Fast cast takes of exactly 1 second off the re-cast time of a spell regardless of it's cast time, so a cure saves 0.2 in the actual casting and 1 second in the re-cast time of 5 for a total saving of 1.2 and a total cast time of 8 (roughly 15%)
Blink also saves 1 second on the recast time of 10 seconds and 0.7 seconds in the cast time of 7 seconds for a total of 1.7 saved on a cast time of 17, roughly 10%"

Also stated are the "completion speeds" which can be quite interesting to both noobs and veterains just as an interesting factoid, and maybe put it to some good use. RDMs relative to each other will not boast a huge difference, but stack Fast Cast III with a Pimp Hat, and you will be envied by all other casters.

By definition, a Warlock and a Duelist are both pimpness personified. And when you look at the stats on the respective gear sets, it breaks my heart when I sit down a realize that a Red Mage is nothing more than a Refresh/Dispel whore by the time the level to equip these goodies comes about.

Also note that the Duelist's Chapeau is the single most uber piece of headgear any mage can enjoy, beyond that fact that it looks too sweet for words. This is apparent for a few reasons. First and foremost, it gives that constant Refresh at 1mp per tick. Also, it adds 14 MP and +15 to the Red Mage's already A+ Debuffing skill. It also adds +10 to wind defense, which adds to defense against Silence. However, all of this comes at a very steep price. This piece of digital art can only be worn by a level 75 Red Mage, and must be won in Dynamis-Xarcabard. No easy task by any stretch of the imagination.

Another heartbreaking fact in the saga of the Red Mage is the fact that we can equip the cursed Crimson/Blood Armor set. With all the incredible stat boosts these armor pieces have, it kills me that they can only be obtained by taking on the God HNMs in Tu'Lia and various other HMNs around Vana'diel and uncursing them. The most sought after piece of Crimson Armor is no doubt the Crimson Cuisess. The reasoning behind this is because they work like Strider Boots in that they add 12% to movement speed. Also, as with all the other parts of the Crimson/Blood set, they have high armor defense, add monumental increases to various elemental defenses, and add to the player's HP and MP without detriment. As opposed to some armors that convert XXHP into YYMP.

A Red Mage is NOT just a Dispel and Refresh whore. With the proper equipment can do some ok to good Melee damage as well as Elemental magic damage. I myself will not join parties that have more than a total of four magic users; my preference is two or three. A RDM is probably the best all around job in the game, and the most difficult to do correctly.

I agree... Red Mages get parties for refresh and dispel, but, there's still MUCH more that we're capable of, even though not as well as other jobs. We don't do 55434353632 with a weapon skill, but we don't do 0 (if you use dispel at the right time...) and though our nukes don't exactly one-shot anything, they do more than 5 damage.

We're less than DD's, but more than mages.



... I want my pimp hat. ; ;

It really depends on the party you have. If you get the random, pld/dd/dd/rdm/whm/blm party, then yea it can be reduced to refresh/dispel. But even then I disagree. I feel I add more than that to a group. I can mb with the best of em, do 20-40 points of damage a hit which isn't great, but it adds up, debuff, backup heal, throw in a decent number of nukes which do some good damage, etc. I'm good for emergency 2hr + escape if need be or elemental seal + sleep 2... ect.

I'm sorry and I understand your view, but I really dislike seeing people say that's all a rdm is good for in parties. I suggest finding a static with a bard and/or nin tank. If you only have 2-3 people to refresh instead of 4-5 it helps a ton.

I actually had a LV75 NIN solo both the NMs for this piece of AF for me. He was so godly. o_o; Worship Leopold on the Fairy server if you see him. Was very kind of him to do it for me and I was shocked!

I dunno why people say they look like a pimp in RDM AF, it looks more like a pilgrim costume to me.
