hmm maybe this goes well with DRK/WAR who use Lv71 Plastron - set armors? As Plaston set armors increase dmg recevied by +40s (Damn) and tends to enchance 'drain' and 'souleater'. This can save DRK's life. Once DRK used the souleater+WS, he/she got hate and hit for 3-4 sec. This 3-4 sec can get him killed as his/her HP should be yellow or red right after using souleater+WS. In short, this ring can allow mages 3-4 sec to cure DRk/War ..which is critial sometimes. If Drk/War equip Plastron, he/she should have this equip as well.

Aside from Maat fight and soloing. If your in a party that's getting **** near decimated and you have to pull out all the stops, this earring along with say all yer boosters and 2hr and maybe a Carapace quick equip changeout, you may be the one that saves the day, or at least the mages and Pld. I'm just speculating though. I'm only level 65.

Latent triggers by red HP

A guy tested the latent effect using the soldier's earring which gives def +20% (the war earring is the only one that can be verified by checking your stats).

He found out that the latent only activates when HP is red and you have less than 100% TP.

Useful for those times when you know things will get ugly.

This might be used for the Level Breaker 5 Maat fight.

Hm... it's level 70...

Now, what's so important about soloing something that does a lot of damage and has a good chance of killing you at level 70?

Nope, can't think of a thing

earring theory

My dark knight is only level 33, so this is kind of speculative, but I think this earring would be very useful at high levels.

An explantion:

Clearly, as a dark knight, your job in the party is to deal damage. With soul eater, berserk, or last resort on, your ATK can get up really high, and if it's high enough above your enemy's DEF, you'll hit him like he has no armor on at all.

But, when you deal a lot of damage, you draw hate. Try it sometime: if you've got 2 or 3 dark knight/warrior job abilities activated, you'll do a ton of damage, and it'll be really hard for anybody to get aggro off you.

Unlike rangers and black mages, who can also deal a lot of damage when they need to, dark knights have good VIT and good HP. So, unlike rangers or black mages, ***dark knights can safely deal enough damage to pull a monster onto themselves***. If a ranger or a black mage is dealing enough damage to hold aggro, they don't have half the chance of surviving it that a dark knight does.

That's where this earring comes into play. You're NOT a main tank. But, when you really need something dead, this earring gives you a better chance to survive while you beat the **** out of it. Your buffs and your other gear are going to help you deal damage and maybe get you to that critical level where the monster leaves the tank and starts attacking you; this earring is just going to help you survive while you play out your offensive buffs.

20% less damage? Yeah, sounds pretty nice.

PS: What activates the latent effect?

I am a 59 (soon to be 60) Galka DRK. This guy could be basing his observations on a Galka (My str is 70 and vit is 67. They are only 3 points off eachother) where as you could be basing it on a Elvan or Human where their vit is below average s a DRK.

This earring is for DRK/WAR who don't need attack and do need to reduce damage they take if their tank sucks and can't hold hate. If your DRK is doing poor damage it's not cause of this earring, it's cause he sucks like 99.9% of DRKs.

If i had a Drk in my PT taht was

Just a Theory: maybe the latent effect is triggered by equiping the BCNM50 ring by the same name?
