I have to say, of all the earrings for pld no matter the race Pidgeon earrings are the best you can never have too much HP... i personally use Pidgeon/Merc earring setup i wanted a lil more Vit instead of an extra 20 HPonce i hit 50 i quickly learned drone earrings suck lol turns out paryying isnt for pld you WANT to take dmg so these earrings really do help out for hate.. more dmg you take the more you gotta cure, tell the whm to give no higher than regen 1 (II if mob is hittin pretty good) and not to cure u till ur outta mp (pr u start takin heavy hits over and over) ull have good hate i encourage plds to get these if u can afford them.

Edit:I'm 55 Pld, love these couldnt tank without mine 220-250k on Fairy (i paid 250 just giving a range dunno what they are)

I did my war somewhat late in the game, to play thf/war for voke when solo farming against hard competition. Borrowed one of these from LS pld buddy and used for 4 levels. It does help a Taru, having the extra hp. Other than that, though, not sure it's worth it at all until your war or pld is up against a HNM or god.

Incredible level 70+ I use them in all HNM fights, sometimes in exp, because with capped shield skill, throwing on extra AGI doesn't really help too much.

You wonder why these cost so much?
Coming from a goldsmither...Platinum ingot 1.6 mil/stack. Pigeonblood ruby 250k...
That means this is ~520k synth.
2x platinum ingot for an earring
1x pigeonblood ruby
Don't whine. Goldsmithers take a loss on these unless they happen to HQ one.

BTW, these are very good for HNM. The +hp items add and are not meant to give 200hp each. That's why people have 10 pieces of different equipment with +hp...it adds up. If you take into consideration that you DO NOT have the -50MP/+50HP conversion as a PLD from a cassie earring (remember it cost 46 mp to cast a cure III that gives back ~200 hp AND it helps a PLD keep hate by curing themselves) this is one of the ideal earrings if you want pure HP without any MP loss.

Why their useful

To the guy who says these earrings suck, your wrong buddy. Against gods or HNM, the extra vit or agi wont help you survive their awsome AoE attack, but the extra HP will. Thats why so many high levels use these types of equipment.

i concede the point that they will be useful for HNM/ Gods etc, and yes, +HP does build up over several items.

I know why the earring is overpriced, but thanks for pointing it out for others too.

My initial rant was aimed at more of the lower lvls who think this will be really useful. Well i don't think it will. Again, i concede that i could well be useful for gods/hnm.

But for most tanks @33, they should be putting their hard earned gil on other Equip/food. +hp is never a bad things, but taking up a slot that could be put to use in a much better way is bad, especially at such a price. At the lvl at which you initially wear it, you don't fight anything that will do such outrageous dmg as to warrant wearing this thing.

So save your money and buy something better. If you are in Gods/HNM, then you are probably loaded and the price will make no odds, and Good luck, cos you'll need it! ;-)

I really just wanted to point out the common mistake by newer people, who think:

"Oooh, that's expensive, it must be really really good!"

This earring sucks!
Q: What is the point of the extra HP,who would use it?
A: Tanks

Why does a tank @ lvl 33+ need 20 more HP when they already have over 600 hp? they don't not for the price you have to pay, when you can get a Merc Earing for extra VIT and/or wing/Drone earrings for which will serve you much better and cheaper too. Alternatively buy food! Regen drinks and or HP boosters, they will do the same and more and cheaper.

20 HP will make no difference to a tank if your pt is good enough and can keep you healed, or NINs that can stay clear of attacks and layer shadows etc.

If your tank doesn't suck, you shouldn't need the extra hp if ur a DD/mage etc, so it can be better used for something else.

Of course things go wrong, but if something is going wrong, then it is not all that often you will survive with only 20 extra hp.

The only use is if you are soling and it may come in useful, but again i think you could put the slot to better use with a different item, or use the extra cash for some better armour or food!

Still just the opinion of one man, but i am right, this earring is far overrated and far far overpriced.

200k on Fairy. Having 2 as a very self destructive Dark Knight (such as myself) has helped immensely.

I think of all the times I've been beaten down to 50 hp and under while having these equipped, and that makes me think of how many times I'd have been dead, and exp loss is to be avoided at all costs when your a Drk and its this bloody hard to get a party invite.

and thats my twisted logic.

Are these better than Drone Earrings for Paladin? I heard both sides of the story but not sure if these are actually worth it for a Lv. 62 paladin.

For Mithra, Taru, and even Hume these are great earrings. If you are Elvaan or Galka, stick with Drone.
