Don't ever wear it outside of tanking gear wear you are kiting or in town gear. Never EVER wear this in party exp or I will hurt you.

I'm a War. I find it harder to hold the hate at these higher levels. Without Ni its a real drag. To say a War can't tank is not completely true, but we are not the best tanks. The highest i have succesfully tanked a mob was maybe at lvl 45 in Quicksands tanking beetles...but that was a really good day for me. I set up my War as a DD now, and when i get invites to tank I simply say Tank? [no thanks] Its really not worth it. Nin and Pld can tank so much better. If there is 2 Wars you can roll voke, but then again the hate dosn't roll perfect because sometimes one war gets more hate and then you can't peel the hate off. Lol, but for the record I could tank any mob in the Dunes as War/Mnk...
War's a cool job.

SE should redo this AF, take some Enmity off. War AF should not have more Enmity than Pld AF... that makes no sense.
I dont know what your talking about.

I am only a brd. Keep this in mind. I have never seen a warrior past Crawler's nest tank(hold hate no pealz). I have seent hem try and the result is downtime even with refresher(me). As merit pts go.. I never make a pt with only a war tanking. Of course 5wars and a brd was my favorite set up ever but none of them can hold hate off eachother. Mnks rngs and blm own wars after crawlers maybe even before if you have some decent members in your pt. im sorry i cant say that i know personally about tanking as war, but i have plenty of time sitting casting ballads over and over for mages with no mp to see that wars are no tanks.

war/nin CAN tank. but they are not as well equipped as a nin or pld. pld better for faster mobs and nin for slower. nin without a thf in pt is rough. nin is whms best friend as pld is blms best friend. if war tankin he better bring some **** good gear and plenty of food. dd is easy to set up as war/nin. DOT is pretty good and rampage is great if you have the right set-up. if you are gonna tank at the lev of this gear.....get this gear. you gonna need it unless you refuse to put dd's in pt. so far it seems that rng is your worst enemy as a war tank. rng tp useable means hate is gone and quick. drk and mnk will steal hate as well. i love war. as stated in earlier posts war is the most versatile job in the game. you are best suited as dd/back-up or sata tank though. war is great bc you can use most weapons, gear, and accessories. thats my 2 cents

I'll start by saying that outside of the dunes and the jungles.... Warriors generally don't make real good tanks. Paladin's and Ninja's are the ideal tanks, but that doesn't mean a Warrior can't do it.... and do it effectively too. Warrior are best as DD, whether it's war/nin with Axes or war/thf, /sam, even /drg with a Great Axe. But a war/nin can tank effectively, especially if there's another war/nin in the party to share the work load. As far as tanking solo goes, it takes a skilled player and a good group of skilled players working together to make it happen. Stun is your best friend when tanking solo, but it does you no good if your stunner can't time his casting properly. I've tanked solo as WAR/NIN and it can be either a piece of cake or a complete disaster. Basically you need a mob no higher than VT that doesn't double attack, and preferably doesn't have an ability that can wipe out all your shadows at once. A mob that attacks too fast is also a bad idea, but in the right area against the right mob you can chain xp just as easily as if you had a paladin or ninja tank. Enmity is also very important, without it your other DD in the party will be doing the tanking. Unfortunately a warrior is very limited in the number of abilities it has to grab hate and keep it. We're pretty much limited to Provoke, Warcry (which has a very long timer and is really just an emergency hate generator when tanking), and the damage we inflict. Without enmity+ gear.... solo tanking as warrior just can't be done. This is where the AF comes into play... a total of enmity +15 (i think that's right anyway) if you're wearing all of it, which isn't entirely necessary. A solo warrior tank is not something you see everyday... and again it's not the best option as tank, but it can be done with fantastic results if played properly with the proper support. Warriors are best suited as DD, and that's what i perfer to do.... i guess i just get tired of hearing people say that it can't be done when i've done it myself on more than one occasion. And if you're a warrior and you can't at the very least back-up tank in an emergency situation... then do us all a favor and pick a new job.

You can say whatever you want. Warrior can tank and honestly the more merit parties i find myself in, the more i find myself peeling the hate off most ninja and paladin i party with. So say what you want. I never said warrior is the supreme tank.... i just said that it's possible. As far as the typing goes, who cares... it's just a friggin forum.

Who ever says WAR's cant tank is a **** I tanked Soldier Crawlers in CN as WAR/NIN and with 2 other pt's to contend with we we're droppin crawlers faster than the other pt's I nvr got below yellow and we only had to stop once for MP when our DRG died cause he wanted to try and to be first voke for SATA >.< (that didn't go far since even after he voked my dmg pulled hate right off him) so yes we can tank as WAR/NIN if you know what your doin.

First of all, you're talking about a mid lvl 30 party, and this is a lvl 60 piece of gear. I have NEVER seen a lvl 60+ warrior solo tank, solo tank meaning that you're not bouncing hate. You WERE bouncing Hate with a thf doing SATA, AND you were gettign fast kills because of a skilled thf USING SATA properly. A MONKEY could support bouncing hate if you have a skilled thief doing SATA regularly and properly! TANKING involves HOLDING hate, straight up, and ALONE, not bouncing between others, and not for every short periods of time through fast kills and SATA. And if you have done that... VIDEO, can I have it?! I just get so sick of lvl 30 noob wars like you INSISTING war makes a great tank, when you have neither SEEN nor DONE....
Hmm
# May 06 2006 at 1:10 AM Rating: Decent
I wouldn't say a Haubergeon is directly better. Think about, +5 Str & +5 Dex is great. and so is +10 Acc & +10 Att. But how often does a Warror take hate without his AF anyway? A lot. And how many times to War's die when a tank can't get hate back? -5 Agi and -10 Eva do them no favours in that situation, which is why with +5 Vit +HP, better Def and +10 Fire resistance actually help a Warrior out. If you have decent other gear you wont miss the +10 Acc to be honest, and Str can be got off just about anything aswell.

Coupled with the huge factor that a Haubergeon is roughly 4mil on Ifrit, usually more and the Lorica is free, i know what i'll be wearing when my Warrior hits 60.

Haubergeon is very optional with /MNK. You have focus during the recast of aggressor. you can make dodge and aggressor go off together to counter the evasion penalty. this and eating meat do make the lorica waaaay more useful than hauby(and easier on mage's MP) in a general exp setup. Shadows is a stupid retort to this because they do not last forever, and with hauby, recasting will be a **** and you'll go down like a ton of bricks.

How many War's do you see actually go /Mnk? 0, thought so. If you want the evasion down dropped from Hauby when you get hate just swap in Lorica, omg its not that hard. War/Nin still FTW (Thank you.)

Drg Af = Resembles the armor of Kain in FFIV (II US) and possibly someone elses in an earlier FF if there was a drg earlier. But Kain's armor was purple-ish. I think, been awhile since I've played that one, lol.

War back up tank
# Nov 03 2005 at 2:50 PM Rating: Decent

I am a 73mnk/37war so i have had a few parties with just about every job out there save bst(few bcnm's or quests is it) and i have noticed something. Since level 60 i have never seen a war/anything successfully tank, ever, even back up tank. I have literally been in this party Pld/war, war/nin, mnk/war(me duh), whm/blm, blm/rdm, rdm/blm, and when that pld went down guess who tanked. Your first guess would be the war/nin considering we were level 72-73 but no it was me. Reasons, even with the +enmity most wars,(preparing for flame) nay most jobs frontline melee cannot deal out the amount of damage or hate gaining skills to keep hate off a mnk with great gear(SH peacock charm snipersx2 CC's etc.). Now of course this is after the update i know but all that tells me is that a) the war had no tanking equips or b) that they are just not suited. Now on the defense of wars everywhere i have not met a nin/war that can keep hate from me since that update either. I just think its sad that the original tank in the game can't keep hate off a mnk at level 73 and that a mnk has to tank a Hobgoblin Angler because the War/nin would get eaten. Ok now on to the af i am sorry war but your af is not that cool...it almost looks like galka rse in the low 30's but red. Now mnk af is nothing to **** over but i still think they coulda made it look a lil bet better. Most of the AF's are supposed to be based off of chars from old games Mainly FFT(Final Fantasy Tactics) and older FF games. I am not sure about this, case in point is DRG af. Whos hairbrained idea was it to make them purple...looks like Barney on crack...but if you look at the drg in FFT they wear light blue armor and a red sash or whatever that thing is. No place do you see purple. I am merely making a point. We can't all be as lucky as the SAM and get cool looking af. Back to tanking the FACT is that anyone with nin/ or /nin can't keep hate off a good dd or else that dd becomes the main tank. No DD likes turning around and getting hit in the back just so that the nin or war/nin can regain hate. Also in case someone gets smart about it nin/war with thf sata doesn't work either cuz the fact of the matter is mnk with berserk focus and dodge on hits for about 40-60 per hit (roughly been a while) and the nin trying to keep hate with defender for that odd hit that he takes only hits for about 10 add it up i am gonna get it eventually and the only way to keep it on him is to steal it and let the sata go off and then i take it back and have to wait for sata to reset. Also war can be used in MANY more ways than war/nin. I have seen a war/thf do 2200 damage with his 2hr sata aggressor berserk warcry and whatever. So think about this ppl, this job is very versitile where as most are very narrow. Use it to your best have thf mnk nin and whatever else leveled to 37 in case you find that certain parties may need you as one more than another. And then there is the "But war/nin rocks in ballista!" i have heard time and again that at level 70+ unless you are a ballista only player no frontline dd can stand against a monk. If you really wanna be that good at ballista purely go thru the **** that it is to be a mnk from 50-60 and then you can say you rock. Sorry but the simple fact is that Raging Fists rules Utsusemi Ichi and Asuran Fists rules Utsusemi Ni. So no more excuses and BS reasons.

I don't know who or what warrior you play with but We Warriors can 'back-up' tank. Every since getting my full AF gear, I can't help but pull hate off Pals. If I didn't 'Provoke', it was my critical hits that made it turn my way, or my WS skills from about any weapon I use.(G.Axe,Axe,Etc.) and I pull hate. And If I were to tank(Lets hope not) All I have to do is grab my Gear and eat some food for tanking.(I know a warrior can't tank like a pal, but better than a mnk I can tell you.) I'm proof of that. I have 3 sets of Gears, -DEF-,-ATK-, and-AF-. With my DEF gear, and food, I carry about 400DEF with 13VIT.(Still experimenting on raising it.) and My -ATK-gear is +25STR and 372ATK. Yes Gear and food is mainly involved, but my point is, We can back up tank, and a lot more.

By your talk, your a PAL. I love PAL, and mean no disrespect, but remember 1 thing: (Read my Motto)

Hmm to start with in your motto you spelled Paladin wrong. I am a 65PLD and have been in a few parties that have WARs since 60 and have never even seen this armor. As for WAR being a better back up tank then MNK I can't say I agree with that because from what I have seen in the parties I have been in the MNK could last longer tanking than a WAR could even with /NIN. I'm not hating on WAR I really love that job. As for leveling my WAR I have never used /NIN I used /MNK until 30 then i started using /THF because I love SA + Sturmwind.

I'm only a lvl 55 Taru warrior. But i've tanked many times all the way up to 55. In order for me to tank successfully i need full cooperation of the party. Usually my tanking party set up includes 2 blms or a blm and a drk who knows when to STUN at the right time. I make my own parties 95% of the time and if there isn't a tank around or another war/nin around to share the dmg taken I just make sure the pt understands to slow, paralyze, blind asap and haste me and stun the mob when i'm casting. Usually it works out pretty well if you and blm times casting proper.

i like war cause it can dish out a beating and take a beating also, unlike pld which can't hit for jack or drk which crumbles in a few hits. so in that balance we find a great power unfortunatly most people see that balance as the greatest weakness. because we don't fit into one role, dd or tank, we aren't given as much love as the others and are called average. sad really :(

a war can out damage a drk if you get the right EQ and sub job... however no way in **** are you gonna out tank a paladin... my recomendation... go all out DD and forget about tanking as war at later levels (unless you are bored stiff and really need a pt and all people want is for you to tank, but make **** sure they have good healers >.<)

I'm still **** because of the fact that this piece of armor (and pretty much MANY other pieces of AF from many jobs) becomes obselete before we even get it. I think SE really messed up by making armor better that is better than AF. Hauby armor is now the thing to have and pretty much makes this armor (and the **** we go thru to get it) worthless. I say SE should make an AF upgrade quest to be the best for the job at the level.

I think many people forget that up until the Rise of the Zilart expansion(yes, RotZ is an expansion, it isnt part of the original) that WAR was the only viable tanking job, that would explain the reason for the Enmity + and the tank-based gear.

So can WAR tank? Yes, I myself have been main tank in most of my parties, thats from 1-45 (45 levels of tanking thus far) and I don't see it stopping anytime soon, I have been building my own PTs and sometimes there just isnt a Tank looking.

Also I see some people talking about Utsusemi; The fact is that WAR was paired as WAR/MNK for tanking and WAR/THF for damage originally, so Shadows didn't even come into the equation and they could still tank.

Then WAR/NIN came along and now we aren't viable tanks? The fact that shadows 1) Lure attacks away from you (meaning makes you lose hate) and 2) Help you take less damage is both a strength and a weakness; But any good DDing WAR can keep hate with the recasting of Shadows. Shaky hate? Not me.

You are mistaken on this one. If you are a strictly DD warrior, then you are not a warrior at all. You are a **** mnk (mnk martial arts beats out /nin DW) or a **** drk (DRK w/ GS will beat out WAR w/ GA). A warrior is meant to be both.

This is probably the single best piece of tanking equipment available. The only other thing might be the aegis helm off of fafnir. Enmity+8?! Vit+5, HP+20? For tanking this is amazing and you'll use it for tanking/kiting any gods. The only thing that I can see replacing this would be Dusk body (maybe?) but I'd personally rather use this instead. Kirin's osode is also good if you're equipping a cassie (str+1,vit+1 and HP+30 converted over).

Too many warriors are DD only, its really a sad thing seeing how endgame they are the best tanks. Don't get me wrong, WARs make amazing DDs also (parse as high as RNGs endgame on dec. weapons), but its the mix that is amazing.

The best thing about warrior is when you dish out the damage like crazy, then a tank drops... who steps up? Not the drk, not the mnk - their paper defense would gear torn through - the warrior steps up switches to tanking gear and shows his true colors. Best thing ever.

I'll agree with you to a point, and please this is my experience so let me explain.

Most wars are war/nin now. and Honestly warrior is only a tank til 37, but We can tank past it, expample, Utesumi: Ichi for war/nin has 3 shadows, double hitting mobs rips them before Casting is backup, there is a way for a war to solo tank w/ a backup voker. White Mage Main and Thief for SATA. WHy sata? Becuase we hold loose hate, thats why our af has so much enmity. Paladins and Ninjas are the best tank to a point. each has their own defenses and abilities, Pallys can heal while Ninja's can have utesumi: ni. Thats my other point on warrior, Effectiveness increases hugely at 74 when you have utuesumi: ni.

But now you are right, Warriors are tanks to a point and damage dealers to a point. You need to be able to do both as warrior main. However Ive noticed that players make war/nin tank becuase they think shadows are indestructable and it can recast fast. My only concern is, why would you make a war/nin tank when that nin/war or pld/war can take damage more? simple question, people stereotype jobs in this game and its disgusting. I wouldnt invite a paladin to damage deal.

I am Warrior 75, infact thats me in that picture. I promise you. Just because you get ni doesnt make you anywhere close to a viable tank. to properly tank War/Nin @74. You get 6 shadows. 3 every 30 sec, 3 every 45. Warrior cannot viably tank even with this piece of armor. Trust me ive tride. I can however emergency tank as said. Pld gets hit by something nasty and goes down, or ninja takes a WS to the face when blinks are down. I can tank. I persoanlly dont like tanking. My job is DD, ive chosen this because I cant viably tank anything T or higher without some other tank period. its a simple fact

I can however swap in my hauberk and pimp out my str and accuracy and spank a monster. Quitely simply if you expect a war to tank you better be ready to have a backup plan.

I also am Like you and I hate tanking, why? becuase my field is in DDing. But I've noticed that a warriors subjob can affect its "role" but all in all i think all wars 40+ are deifnatly NOT tanks. Flame me if you will people, IDC, Zac is absolutly right on every point and fact he's made. Paladin's can withstand damage better then a warrior, and if i tank and utesumi goes down and it can't get it up wtihin 30 seconds, its my fault that i'm a lousty tank becuase i cannot do what the timer wont let me, i mean think about it people..... use your heads :D

and Zacosham your right, inviting a warrior? better have a plan B incase things go awry~

I completely agree with this entire topic-type thing. I am a main War, level 44 now, coming up to 50 soon so now I'm thinking about my AF as more than just something nifty to wear. I was looking through our equip and was majorly disappointed.

Our AF concentrates on Enmity + and Vitality over Dex and Acc and Enmity -. Seriously, I'd hate to pop a Sturmwind with the +8 enmity this offers and definately not the +12 i think it is, that the entire set offers, the Pld's AF only gives him +6 enmity. I can understand that this armor was designed when War was the ONLY tank, but that doesnt mean you can't design PLD's AF to be more tank worthy or even change the WAR's existing AF stats.

I might wear this around Jeuno or when helping my friends for kicks, but I could never wear this during an EXP party because I would be dead before our PLD could even think of pulling an invincible.

On a side note, I really don't like War/Nin, I feel its folly, people trying to be what they think will work better. The delay between 2 axes at 40 and 1 GA at 40 makes it so that 1 GA is faster than 2 axes. There are plenty of other problems, ive seen many mentioned. What happened to the good old days of warring?

I think that leveling Warrior is a great challenge, the first and the main job for every newbie around vanadiel.
This armor is a good reward for the big effort

Amen to that brother.....why is it that war af is the queerest looking of them all?? You would have thought that the game designers would have tryed alittle harder to make the warrior look cool in his af gear.....but hey what more shame is there than gettin beat down by a guy dressed in **** gear.....
GO TEAM!

Look at the AF gear, then look at the jobs original 8-bit sprites (If applicable). Notice anything?... For the most part they are the sprites incarnate. It wasn't just randomly generated. ^^;

To Each their own. Mithra's look **** dead **** in it :p besides, honestly I think it has a better design in the AF Set 2 Warrior's range, but over all Decent stats, specially helps hold hate when you get put in a **** pt as war/nin and theirs no pally seeking you end up as main tank and the **** drk thinks its funny to use souleater and steal your fuggin hate /rant okay so i had a bad day in the nest :P

over all its not that its hard, just that its good to have some friends with you, my entire LS is lined up when i hit 50 to go after it.

The reason Warrior AF has so much enmity is... well, have you ever seen a Warrior try to tank with a heavy damage dealer in the party? ^^; It just doesn't work anywhere near as well as with a Paladin. They're given so much enmity because as far as keeping hate, they fail in comparison with a Paladin's ability to keep hate. Slug Shot = Ranger Tank. Don't get my wrong though, I'm not trying to insult the War class, I love it. :D

Seeing as the original post was
"Posted @ Mon, Dec 29th 11:20 PM 2003"
and you're posting about a year and a half later... I think it's safe to assume that said information might not have been on the site at the time of his post. Just my 2 gil, but you made yourself look like the dip wad. /clap
