Shadow Mantle

I was honored to be 1st PLD in my dyna ls to recieve the mantle. I belong to dyna ls DynaFFS and we wear the title "Lifter of Shadows". We have beat Dark Lord twice in 3 weeks now, got mantle both times and ring once. If on Fairy server can also find the mantle on fellow PLD Killua and the ring on our main assist Marien.
As far as % of 0's is all speculation, would put more in 10% - 12% range though. Agree that may be many hits between 0's but never more than 12 although at times it may seem like 50 ^^ have also had 6/7 zero's and wearing it in 2nd DL battle took no damage. Also the use of Sentinal seems to greatly increase the %.

Proc Rate
# Dec 18 2006 at 8:27 AM Rating: Decent
I'd place it around 6 or 7%. I've seen it proc around 10% a few times fighting Tiamat over the course of 90 mins. However, just like many things in this game, it can be very sporadic and spotty. You might go 50 hits without a proc. Or might go 3 in a row.

Personally, I've never taken off my shadow mantle on PLD since I got it. I could see /NIN not using it. However, I can't tell you the number of times the mantle proc-ed while casting Ichi. But, if you are PLD/NIN to a lot of things, there are better options, especially now since shield blocks with this new patch today "should" allow PLD to be uninterrupted when casting shadows.

The real nice thing about a shadow mantle is that it is an extra line of defense. After your evasion/parry/shadows/shield block checks, you get a free 5% (or whatever it might be) chance to nullify it. No other piece of gear can do that.
Proc rate sucks?

Can't wait to see one drop for my LS. Over the course of over half a year, starting the LS from the ground up, we've managed to finally tackle Dynamis Lord twice over the past few months, falling him to 70% then 50%. Crappy luck we must have, because the 2nd run we had over 40 people, and he decides to do multiple back to back knockback AOE, causing some melee WS to be nulled.

All in all, this is an item of LS teamwork and cohesiveness. Saying this only benefits YOU is very self-centered and narrowminded to say the least.

Can a ninja or paladin solo ash dragon, bune, etc?
They cant. Even paladin cant solo some normal NMs. :p

Only rdm with great gears can, and this mantle makes us works even better.


I would expect to hear something like this from a noob, not someone with so many lvl 75 jobs but I guess common sense doesn't have anything to do with what level you are. Is it a good piece of equip for multiple jobs? Yes. but thinking that it would benefit a rdm more overall than a pld is a little much for me. Rdms can solo a lot but what about most end game mobs that you want a nin/pld/war to tank for you? I personally would rather have a tank in my LS have this to benefit everyone that a rdm who wants to solo all the time. Btw, I'm sure you didn't solo rdm the whole way to 75 so please give some of us tanks a break.

As much as I want to be: "ZOMFG RDM FTW, we pwn j00!" I have to say that I would pass on this mantle until ALL LS tanks have it... Sure, it would help me out if I'm going to try to go Avesta style and solo HNMS... but that doesn't help the whole LS much. Having a Pld wearing this is infinitely more useful to the LS. You have to think about people other than yourself (I know that's hard for a lot of rdms).

I wish I saw this orginal post somewhere. If RDM can solo all that stuff then they don't need it. Can't believe he said pld can't solo normal nms. I think a lvl 75 PLD has a good chance of soloing leaping lizzie (yeah I'm being stupid).

I've never met a rdm that can solo any hnm. Bune and Ash Dragon don't dragons have a dispelga tp move.

I hate all people that think this job is awesome others job suck and everyone playing them should quit or play this job whether it's nin rdm mnk sam or whatever.

Hmm, interesting opinion from a 75 PLD..only PLD can use effectively? uhh dont mean to be an **** but id have to disagree, the shadow nullify damage would be great for any job that regularly takes dmg or tanks, not just pld. and considering that the +20VIT is only good for ONE day of the vanadiel week i think that saying this item is only good for PLD would be quite stupid...no offense Nephew
and if ur LS can kill Dynamis Lord and ur a PLD and dont have first drop dibs and u leave i think ur an idiot...ive only killed him once and we didnt get drop, but leaving a great LS for being spoiled i think thats "noobish"

Ppl like you make LS fall into piece because your so gready. Like I said think about the LS not your **** i n g self. This mantle on a PLD which always tank will help your LS more then on a **** i n g NIN that uses it for 1/10 of its capacity.

If your LS leader is stupid enough to let everyone lot on this item, then yes I would quit the LS. Since, I'm not the main tank in our LS, I wouldn't mind passing on the first mantle so our main tank can have it, but I wouldn't want a **** NIN to get it before me since I do lots of tanking in dynamis. Even if NIN wants to tank in dynamis, they have too many problems at keeping hate.

And the VIT on darksday is the last thing good about this mantle, I would take it any day without that stats. You fail.

If your LS gives this to anyone other then your main PLD tank first, you should quit that LS while your at it. Only the ppl going into dynamis all the time as PLD should have lots on this item. What good is this mantle gonna be on anything else for your LS? NINs can't take full avantage of the mantle since it won't proc when shadows are up. And NINs rarely tank in dynamis anyway. But if you give this to your main PLD tank, then its going to make your dynamis LS that much more powerfull. And will make DL that much easier to kill, thus getting more mantles. You got to think about the priority of the LS and not of the leader or yourself.

I understand that this would be great for PLD during any occasion, Dynamis included, but EVERYBODY who partook in taking DL down should get lot on this. It's just one of those "So cool a great LS like this can have fun taking down mobs like this and having people get really good equips".

No, because the procrate on it isn't enough for people who get hit "occasionally".

This belongs on a PLD, hands down.

If you give this to some DD or Mage because he/she took part in the DL kill, you give him/her an item that he will almost never equip because it does not help him doing his job at all. (Imagine a WHM (mage) or a SAM (DD) wearing this in Exp, HNM, Sky, Dynamis, etc etc...)
Now think about PLDs in the same situations...
[Same goes for the Shadow Ring~ even more since it can stop Magic damages, whom PLDs are weak to]

My linkshell leader has this, they killed Dynamis Lord this week, first NA kill on Siren. Unfortunately it doesn't activate anything like the Joyeuse. It's roughly 5-10% of the time, something like that. Still an awesome back piece when you figure that's minus 5-10% damage taken.

Ying and Yang are summoned by the Dynamis Lord, but that's it. No they're not on repop timers. In fact, I'm not really aware of ANYTHING in Dynamis being on a repop TIMER. Now, there's plenty of mobs that pop/repop on a trigger, ie killing a specific other key mob, but that's it as far as I know.

we get to DL with about 30 minutes left on the timer and the fight takes about 60 seconds if done right, Ying and Yang spawned and we still won. 10 minute repop timer would make it easy to kill him. it looks to me like its maybe a certain time into battle with the big guy. 10 minutes would have never had them pop on us.

eh... nothing but Firaga III, THundaga III, Blizzaga III, Stonega III, Waterga III... you get the picture.

Get paralyzed by Hakutaku and can't get ur blinks back up when he casts Firaga III... guess what?
Be wishing maybe you had the Ring instead...

Still pretty cool item.

Dynamis is an alternate realm where if the beastmen had won the war, that is how the wolr of Van'diel would look like.

The Dynamis lord is the alternate version of the Shadow lord of the normal world.

Dynamis Lord

This is said to drop from the mega boss of Dynamis-Xarcabard, the Dynamis Lord. Forget Kirin, this is the toughest mob in the game. He is somewhat larger than the Shadow Lord, but looks much like him. He summons 2 unsleepable dragons Yin and Yang into battle with him and has a penchant for instantly killing alliances with one move, to say nothing of any 2hr ability he may have.

As far as I know only one person on Ifrit has this cape. A recent patch 'fixed' a problem where 'certain mobs' in Dynamis were prevented from using their special abilities. Speculation abounds that it was the Dynamis Lord that they fixed, and as such nobody has gotten his cape since.

Dynamis Lord is cake compared to Vrtra. Vrtra is a HNM in the very depths of King Ranperre's Tomb. Only 2 or 3 servers have killed it as of yet. It is level 95, and summons lvl 80 mobs to its aid. Take a look for yourself if you'd like.

yea i've heard that pretty much the only way to beat it is for the people to take a huge xp cut, such as dying like 18 times in a row and have a brd constantly casting goddess hymnus(reraise) on everyone

Yeah, I've been trying to find an LS that will go to fight this mob, but as of now, no one has the shadow ring/mantle on fairy (that I know of). There have been 5-10 really good tries by some Ls's, but the other atempts I heard of were pretty bad. =/

Well, judging from other "Occasionally.." items, such as Kraken Club, i'd say pretty regularly

Occasionally annulls damage from physical attacks
On Darksdays: VIT+20

Its a super good back armor for PLDs (and any job that wants to tank really...). Gained from Dynamis-Xarcabard and it is Rare/Ex
