Rune Axe + BST + Gaudy Harness
# Sep 02 2006 at 2:58 PM Rating: Decent
As Bst/Nin with 2 Rune Axes and Gaudy Harness equiped you can get back 10hp per 3mp spent. All you need is a piece of equipment with atleast +3mp to it.

I dunno if it was changed in an update but I just tested it (19 aug 2007) as blm/nin with 2 axes. It drained 6 mp per tick for 10 hp back. So- charged once for each axe.

Just to make it clear the latent effect of this axe is a 5hp/tick regen effect converting MP into HP. Once your MP is gone regen goes off. Like a reverse auto-convert effect. Only real use I can see for this is like a DRK, or someone with a main or sub who has MP but not the ability to cure. ie. WAR,BST,BRD,RNG sub BLM,DRK; BLM/melee, DRK/melee, SMN/BLM,DRK. Mabey it'd be good if u had mp and did'nt want or had time to cast regen, or if your job could'nt use a regen spell. Just some possible pratical uses for this.

I use one to farm as War/Thf, combo'd with Hercules ring and an MP earing.
When my HP goes below 50% I get Regen and Refresh from Herc ring, and this axe turns that mp into more Regen. Never have to rest for HP ^_^

Bascially get: 3hp, 1mp > 8hp > 3hp, 1mp > etc.

Just wondering, Has anyone possesed 2 of these? It would be awsome to have A -MP- Equipment(1 piece), and 2 of these in a exp party. Carring some drinks to 'Refreash', A WHM or Healer won't have to worry too much about a meely like me.

this just really ****** me off. . . blms and smns can use ALL the rune weapons, but whms can only use the rod and staff, normal weapons... load of BS if you ask me! since latent effect activates when weapon is draw and if you have mp (drains 1mp/tick i heard), blms and smns are made for these, even though they dont have the skills (oh well), HELLO SQUARE ENIX whms and rdms are mages too!! (yes im fighting for rdms -.-) we have mp as well, let us use these **** weapons, just plain not fair that blms and smns get to use stuff whms cant. . . and rdms i suppose. . . but i mean, wtf this is BS ><
anyone know where i can complain? lol, i wanna use these weapons o.O just not fair us whms cant -.- though, after whm ill prolly lv blm or something just to use these. . . >< damnit SE t(>.<t)

It is pretty dumb that WHM's and RDM's get the cold shoulder on these weapons, but then at the same time, if you look at it, RDM' sget the chance to use a variety of weapons already, and WHM armor is EVERYWHERE! As a Summoner, I'm really angry to see that there's a huge lack of SMN specific armors, when practically every other job has them. Austre robe makes us look like drunken slobs, YinYang looks like NIN gear -.- and really (in my opinion) SMN artifact armor is the only good looking useful armor we have ; ;

Where's OUR Weskit looking cool-as-**** stuff huh!


/endrant

I guess what my point is.. is all jobs will be left ut on certain equip at some point, so just be happy with what you've got. Besides, with the - MP effect these kinda suck anyways :(

P.S. WHERE THE **** IS THE Rune Great Sword HUH!? I want a GS damnot!!!! /sigh

gaudy harness

wearing the gaudy harness and wielding this axe will give a constant regen effect. so if you sub whm you will technically get +2 hp per tick.

fyi, the latent effect drains your mp and adds to your hp while the weapon is drawn, gaudy harness gives refresh when you fall below 50 mp so this makes for a nice farming combo.

Actually, it's even better than that. The Regen from Rune Axe is 5hp/tick, not just one. But once you use up your MP buffer, it ends up being 5hp per 2 ticks; at 0 mp the axe effect is off, and the Gaudy Harness regenerates 1 mp. The next tick, the axe effect is on, and uses up your 1 mp. And so on, with your mp alternating between 0 and 1.

It's still awesome for BST/THF farming, or for BST/NIN solo. This plus the Presidential Hairpin and Muscle Belt make for a whole lot of Regen while farming.

Bless you Melbolt!
This is exactly what I was wondering, came here to investigate how much the -refresh was, and you'd already answered it beautifully! Thanks!

BST/THF farming will now become so much nicer.

i use this combo myself, the only draw back i see is that even if your hp is full the axe continues to drain mp once drawn and the harness only begins refresh once mp goes below 50 and will only ever refresh upto 49mp.

I believe you're thinking about relic weapons which you need to upgrade to make them better since when they start out, they are DMG:1 and Delay:999 I believe.

Latent effects are NOT always random, they always have specific triggers. Problem is that they don't say on the item. This has a specific trigger, you just don't know it.

i thought for rune weapons the latent effect is triggered by:
1) In Battle
2) Having MP

and it drains your MP as long as latent effect is on
