Level 30 Subjob Items

Level 30 Subjob Items

There are level 30 Earrings, Shields, Belts and Mantles that all trigger on Latent Effects. These all correspond with a job.
All of them activate via Subjob. Nothing else will trigger these to activate, NOT main job, ONLY subjob.
The newest jobs (Blu, Cor, Pup) do not have these items (as of 7/27/06).
Subjob: Bard        - Singer's    (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Song Belt) 
Subjob: Beastmaster - Trimmer's   (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Pick Belt) 
Subjob: Black Mage  - Wizard's    (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Staff Belt) 
Subjob: Dark Knight - Killer      (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Scythe Belt) 
Subjob: Dragoon     - Wyvern      (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Lance Belt) 
Subjob: Monk        - Wrestler's  (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Cestus Belt) 
Subjob: Ninja       - Genin       (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Sarashi) 
Subjob: Paladin     - Esquire's   (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Shield Belt) 
Subjob: Ranger      - Beater's    (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Gun Belt) 
Subjob: Red Mage    - Warlock's   (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Rapier Belt) 
Subjob: Samurai     - Ashigaru    (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Katana Obi) 
Subjob: Summoner    - Magician's  (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Avatar Belt) 
Subjob: Thief       - Pilferer's  (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Dagger Belt) 
Subjob: Warrior     - Mercenary's (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Axe Belt) 
Subjob: White Mage  - Healer's    (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Mace Belt)

There are other Latent effect items that trigger at different things such as Low HP, <100% tp, a bard song on you, This is NOT one of those items.
The only thing that activates these items is your subjob.

Great earring! Though I do keep my second Drone on me depending on the circumstances. Normally goes for about 150k on Ramuh...just happened to be one of those lucky low bid days for me...got it for 10k!

Yes...WAR sub activates it.

The VIT+2 isn't showing up in the profile, not a big deal, just wanted to bring it to attention.

EDIT: Just to be clear, I'm talking about the Alla profile, not in game. It works fine in game.

Just my opinion but I think this would be better for a Hume, Mithra, or Taru PLD since they get higher AGI due to their race. Drones would be better for an Elven or Galka PLD since they get a higher VIT and lower AGI from their race. Again this is just my opinion.

well the vit +2 will definitly help you keep dmg to a minamal, but the agi+ you get from drones will help you perry, sheild block, and eva more, so it's arguable that with the drones you will take less dmg per battle.

I just purchased this on Cerbeus for 60k.

I'm a lvl 40 PLD.

Should come in use. Went from +12 Vit to +14 Vit.

Can't wait to go fight with it on.

BCNM 30s are'nt very popular in carbuncle, so they go for about 100k here. it is'nt cheap, but imo they're way worth it.

with the merc earring + kamp set + war belt plus 1 + 2 stamina rings + fishkabobs i was only taking 7-12 dmg from mandys in the kazham jungle. imagine that, taking single digit dmg! i was like "yep...this is awesome"

I got this as soon as I was lvl 30 with my PLD, but I was told it wouldn't work unless PLD was my subjob. See the thing was... IT WAS ONLY 10K! Now I realize that I could put this to use with war sub, and it's 80k! I hate myself and I want to die.

Actually, you're not dumb, just gullible, Mercenary's Latent Effect is activated by having a WAR sub. I believe it is Squire's Equip that is PLD sub.

Correction: Just looked it up, Latent Effect Earring for PLD sub is Esquire's Earring.

Let's just pretend you never post this ok? But since you did...

The Stamina Earring contrary to the Stamina Ring does not give any Vitality. So there you go, you have your answer.
Uh oh

I have WAR sub, but I didnt get VIT+2 when I equipped this (friggin' expensive) item. What gives??

EDIT: Figured it out. When I first checked my VIT it waas +14. Then I bought and equipped this And my VIT still said +14. Turns out I had food on me the first time I checked that was giving me VIT+2. In other words, I went from VIT+14 with food to VIT+14 regularly and didnt notice the food wAas even a factor the first time I looked.



P.S. They seem to be going for 80-90k on Ramuh
