Good item

Everyone who says this sucks, your wrong. its an item with a specific purpose. its for RNG's pretty much only who have good gear. Rangers have VERY LITTLE RATT gear, and since no stats boost RATT for crossbows the only solution for more damage is RATT gear. If you got Hawkers knife/pea charm/sniper or caprice rings then sacrificing the Racc from a Nomads +1 is definatly worth it. the simple fact is there is no better cape for rng 1-50 IF you got good gear

It's cheap, your not getting a better attack bonus on your back at lvl 50 for such a low price...

I got all excited when I saw this on a guys bazaar in upper jeuno. So I whipped out my credit card and paid 300k + 30k (tax) O_o !!

Well, after the initial elation wore off I started thinking about what this thing was actually worth. I liked the Ranged Attack, but the regular Attack is useless to me. Considering I would be swaping it out for a Nomads +1 this is what I would be doing: I gain +1 Ranged Attack and I lose +1 Ranged Accuracy and +3 Evasion. Hmmmm.... probably should stick with the Nomads +1.

Anyway, there are none ever sold on our server AH. So I listed it for 400k just for fun. It got returned to me. I think this mantle would sell for about 100k at the AH, but instead of losing over 200k I think ill just keep it and use it on mobs that are easy to hit.

ok i think its definitly a Synth Item, because on the fenrir server there are 2 sold, and they were both sold yesterday (or within the last week im not sure). They were sold by the same person, so that leads me to believe that it is definitly a new synthable item, probably leathercraft in my opinion because of the word Mantle, its probably made out of some kind of skin. Anyway hope that helps, go start talkin to all the guild people and see if they give you the recipe :-)

I'm going to take a shot in the dark (hehe pun intended) and say this might be a drop from one of the new BCNMs that will be introduced in the Dec. 9 patch.
If so, I wouldn't mind getting it for my Sam/rng

this isn't on the ah and it doesn't appear to be rare/ex, does this really exist or is this a fake item? If it is indeed real how does one go about obtaining one?

It isnt a fake item. It was found by the auto-collection thing during recent updates, the collecter finds new item-files added to the game.
How to get this, well noone know yet =P

this is a cool piece of armor, and decent alt. to nomads mantle for rangers. although most would argue that nomads would still be better, because of the agi+

but i would buy this just to have it. and ill be looking for it on the Ah in case its cheap and before inflation gets to it.
