Speaking from a RDM that has a Dalmatica, it is very useful:

+ great for roaming parties
+ great for fighting wryms, because you dont always have time to /rest.
+ it's a benefit to have, of course AF body > Dalamtica when debuffing, but I always macro it in right after
+ it's an eye catcher
+ I believe it's intended more for RDM's than other mage class.
(WHM = Nobles)
(BLK = AF2/Black Cloak)
(SMN = YingYang Robe)
(BRD = Sha'ir Manteel)
(RDM = ??? what body piece ??? = Dalmatica/Crimson)

Any RDM would love to have this, it's one of our best endgame pieces. Dalmatica ~&~ Crimson Body / Mage ~&~ Meleeing = sounds like a RDM to me.

Does anyone know if they refresh on this piece stacks with the refresh from the AF2 Hat from Dynamis? If so then having both plus the regular RDM refresh is like a WHM with SMN sub and Nobles w/ RDM refresh. 5mp/tic if im correct? Would make for a steady flow of MP in an EXP party. definately good for +hrs HNM fights like Tiamat, Jorm & Vrtra

I don't see why its so great for RDM. It offers no benefits besides MP, and RDM shouldn't need it due to Convert. Once that 50mp is gone (pretty much a single Refresh cast) all thats left is the Auto-Refresh at 1mp/tick. For many casts there is the Errants Body for an extra 10 INT and MND, for enfeebling there is AF body. No RDM should really need a weak refresh ability, and they don't come much weaker than 20mp per minute.

Not saying its a bad equip, just that there are much better equips, even for roaming parties. As a Red Mage we shouldn't be playing main healer in large battles, and that MP pool of ours should easily last the 10 min Convert recast unless you're spamming nukes. I'm speaking as a WHM with Nobles. That MP refresh is really pathetic, and doesn't justify keeping an equip. Dalmatica does offer other benefits, just not many for RDMs.

I can tell you now from first hand experience...

AFv2 hat and dalmy stacks up... becomes a habit to hit those idle macs to swap in that gear and that's 2mp/tick more than you would have if you didn't. I can't imagine playing w/o them now xD it's sad.

LOLOLOL. Wow are you on crack? Let me ask you something, say you and a MNK are competing for highest % dmg done on a parser and you see in the logs hes hitting for 1 damage higher then you every time, and you think, Oh its nothing. When you look at the parser and he outdamages you by 500 dmg you think "Woah!". Thats what its like for this piece. Refresh is basically 3 Refresh equipment stacking on, this is one of them, Duelist Chapeau is the other, so you'll be 2/3 for equipment. 5MP/Tick Rapes, and in Aht Urgan Areas, 6MP/Tick, beat that.

Believe it or not, RDM do run out of MP. If we're main healing in a party, it can get ugly. I would really like Dalmatica because unlike Vermy Cloak, it allows for the wearing of AFv2 hat as well, an extra 1 mp/tick Refresh. We can't wear any other Refresh gear but Vermy and Dalmatica/AFv2 hat is the most efficient Refresh for us.

I believe that this is good for each job that can equipt it, but it is better for some jobs than others. But, I also think that certain jobs should have a priority for lotting it. Here is my oppinions for what the priority should be and why:
WHM: 2 because all the stats apply to WHM, but it is better for a RDM and BRD than WHM.
BLM: 3 because a BLM doesn't need the stats this gives, and if they wanted it, they could buy better armor. This is just show armor for a BLM.
RDM: 1 because it is one of the best RDM bodys.
BRD: 1 because it helps with MP problems BRDs have.
SMN: 3 because the Yinyang Robe is much better for a SMN than this.

You don't have to agree with me on this at all, but this is just what i think. If you have a different oppinion, please reply. I am not trying to ofend anyone with my oppinions, so please do not flame...

This actually sucks for RDM. It offers nothing besides a weak refresh and MP boost for the job. You should not be getting hit enough to need the magical defense. Warlocks tabard gives +15 enfeebling magic skill and Duelists gives Fast Cast. You can also get +10 MND and INT with Errants. This should not be a priority for RDMs.

White Mage's might find the MP quite useful, but its more of a macroed equip rather than a static piece. Noble's grants the same fresh but adds 10% cure potency on top and relic Briault gives bonuses to Regen spells.

All in all, Dalmatica is very much a situational piece of armor. Useful if you need the extra MP but it doesn't really offer much besides. I do agree with it being a useful equip for bards, but again there are better armors available out there which enhance the job.

I don't think it's a 3 for BLM; the Refresh is pretty nice, without losing the head slot with black/vermillion/royal cloak.

I personaly believe that that is a good combo, i would want to have that if i had a RDM lv 75, but the Relic Hat + Crimson Scale Mail is good also, and probably better for a RDM than a Dalmatica.

Meh. Dalmatica is lame for RDM IMO. It's like crimson scale (AF2 body is better for soloing as /nin because of +fast cast and +agi, Crimson Scale is really only useful when soloing as /blm and macroing it in for +40 mp on convert), real pretty to look at, but not all that useful when you come right down to it.

It's sitational, I suppose. For main healing, yeah. It's more geared towards SMN and BRD as backup healer. RDM have convert/refresh and with refresh + ballad + convert and if you are lucky enough to get AF2 hat, that 1mp/tick doesn't make much of a difference. I VERY rarely run out of MP during EXP or HNM fights on RDM.

same as vermillion cloak. you need aquarian abjuration body and a cursed Dalmatica. cursed dalmatica is Lv100 clothcraft with 60leather sub. you trade the abjuration(dropped by aspidochelone, king behemoth, & nidhogg)and the cursed dalmatica to a npc, he then uncursed it for you. Creating Rare/EX Dalamtica.

The entire Zenith armor set gives you a whopping conversion of 250 HP to MP. This can make for a supremely insane-powerful BLM, WHM, or a god-like (mp-wise) SMN. I personally want this for my RDM. He'll have 1100+ HP at level 75, and this can give him a surprisingly high amount of MP.

(+1 Versions give you 275 HP to MP conversion, but good luck buying the -1 versions :/ )

Is the cursed Dalmatica (the thing you need 100 clothcraft for) also rare/ex, or can you find it on the AH?

Plus, do you need any particular skill to uncurse it, besides the reagent off Fafnir?

By the way, here's the recipe for the Cursed Dalmatica, (your cloth skill must be at level 100):
Earth Crystal
Gold Chain
Siren's Macrame
Velvet Cloth x2
Behemoth Leather
Gold Thread
Rainbow Cloth
