This is for Capped areas. And PLD helping out a friend with CoP 4.3 that has this already is a beast. The +HP and Enmity make CoP 50 cap so incredibly easy to tank. I'd rather have Enmity > +VIT any day. Cause all the VIT in the world won't help if you don't take hits cause you don't have hate. :P

Is there any evidence to back this up? (i.e. has someone worn one in Promyvion-Vahzl? That's the only place you would fight Empty type creatures at level 50.) Someone else also claimed the same thing in a thread in the PLD forum, but gave no concrete evidence.

JSE for PLD/WAR

I just got this peice and I say that those who think this is useless are all fools.My PLD is only 46 right now,so it's not able to use it.HOW EVER my WAR is 52 and is able to wear it.Granted that the less defense isnt exactly a turn on,it still gives PLD's and WAR's an edge.Especially when you have those nukers who like to chain cast in your party.It also helps you to keep hate better when a RNG decides to let go with split shot or side winder.Hey what about when a THF misses SATA huh or someone gets in the way and accidently get SATA done on them.It is very difficult to tear hate from that guy when they just had that happen.Any gear that gives +enmity is well worth having.Besides,as long as you have a healer,be it WHM or RDM or SMN,that knows what they're doing,than these stats aren't an issue.And besides,my Mithra looks sooooo sexeh in this golden armor.In closing I'd just like to say,if you don't like the stats,then dont get it.Quit **** about it.Just one more thing,is there another peices of parade gear? I would like to have a complete set.

You have to finish the Promyvions to gain access to the Aqueducts. Its probably a good idea to have killed the Minotaur as well by then (second CoP mission).

lotsa people complaining that they'd rather have vit + gear on.

how bout this? macro this to be equipped in your provoke macro, macro this to be equipped in your healing macro, flash macro, etc. after the action is performed switch back to your vit.

i'm not sure that this is how emnity works but i believe that there is a value slot in memory, when an action is performed it increases this value which is your hate, if you have emnity gear on at the time of that action you get an extra specific percentage tacked onto that value, couldn't hurt.

i feel that this is how hate was implemented, i do not feel that changing equipment would decrease the emnity you gained from your last provoke while wearing this, think about it, if a blm casted flare and then instantly changed to - emnity gear, it would not make the mob hate him any less. same theory.

If you have +enmity on, then anything from provoke to every hit you land will henerate more than average hate, depending on how much you have. If you are, or have ever payed attention to a smaro/skilled thf, you will notice they also tend to macro in those enmity earing before a SATA, and yes, its very efefctive. I've seen in many cases it making an elvaan thf stack hate as good as a mithra. While the damage might be lower from natural base dex, the hate is still there. Enmity+ gear is such a wonderful thing XD

I got this piece for my pld, which I retired at 50 but definately im bringing it back now that I got this piece of armor, emmity for pld is always great especially if you cant afford that new emmity+ ribbon or a mermaid ring, and if you can its a great addition to ur emmity collection. its great def, HP+ is always a good thing especially seeing that spiders in Boyahda tree use sickle slash alot and sickle slash hurts big time. You could ask any skilled pld level 60+ and they will definately tell you that its a very uber piece of armor for it being level 50.

With several hundred def, as a lvl 50 pal, I don't think 2 points is going to matter. Losing vit always sycks though.

you all forget.

VIT=nothing

If you can't hold hate :/

now there are plenty of VIT+ items

Verve+1's...Vigors...merc earring...etc

& if you have crazy DD's like I do, (Sidewinder + Raging fist is a tad crazy if used to early) The Enmity+ is nice & in a addition the armor looks cool.

Although good, u won't miss a couple vit points for being able to tank any & everything your party throws at you. But that's to say u have enuff skill already. One article of equipment does not make you great.

Ok this item **** me off. First off mostly every job gets there own item, or at least an ability for their job but Warriors get stuck with pld's?!

I know a warrior CAN tank but I see warrior also as a DD, I already hate the fact that AF gear has all that enmity on it that I have to have even if i'm just trying to be a DD. Now this item gives +2 enmity and +28 hp? That useless to the warrior who is trying to be a DD. It kinda makes the warrior into a tank for these bcnm's >_<.

Acctually Gaudy Harness is BRD/BST. The Cotehardie is BLM/SMN the Nimbus Doublet is WHM/SMN and Cerise Doublet is RDM/BRD I beleive.

Question.

In the end-game, *~knowing~* full well that most melee jobs can go days and weeks without ever finding a single party (much less a good one- and don't you DARE say 'make your own', because, hey, sometimes there just isn't a PLD looking, or a NIN, or a WAR that's willing to tank, or a RDM, or a BLM...), since melee DDs apparantly are the most plentiful and least needed job around, why would you even *WANT* to be one, when your job of choice is PERFECTLY well suited for tanking, something that *every* party needs, but can never seem to find enough of?... Ok. So, now that your job is doing great at DDing, SE also gives you a little something to help you do something else, too. And you're complaining?...

<.< >.> Sorry; just a little annoyed at all the PLDs, and WARs, and NINs, and RDMs, and BLMs, etc, that are shooting past me in level while I'm farming, hoping for an invite... >.<

Also, just so you know, other JSE are dual-use, like the SMN/WHM item.

I have to agree with Kyizen, at least this item is useful in those rare circumstances where you decide it would be more valuable to your party for you to tank, than to just DD. Look what smn got, light spirit upkeep -1? Let me just save my pennies for that one. I've been saying that summoners needed spirit cost -X for a while now, but -1 to a spirit that is virtually useless to begin with (let alone cost prohibitive, 150k+ on Ragnarok) seems wasteful. And yes, I could buy Austere gear if I had a lot more gil than I do since summoners can't farm without draining all their MP away on mobs half their level. I'm level 55 and still can't kill a Gigas in Qufim without Carbuncle or at least 80 MP in cures/regen.

Square designed warriors to be the ultimate balance in the traditional melee. You can go from Berserk + Great Axe to Axe + Shield and Defender in a matter of seconds if the paladin dies, then tank the mob until the party can kill it. That was clearly Square's intent with the warriors, however, warriors have fallen behind paladins and ninjas as tanks since they can't hold hate like a pld and they can't blink tank like a nin. This is helping to turn them into a viable tank again. I say go Square!

Your right but at the same time it doesn't exactly work like that. First off I love my warrior as my main job because of the versatility that job provides. I can be a good DD or I can be a good tank, I can also pull well and be good trick buddy or back up tank.

And yes when i'm seeking people now this, a drk can be seeking and so is a drg, sam and war the same lvl but if the party needs someone to tank they can grab the warrior and the drk, sam and drg are left seeking. Yet at the same time warriors aren't the best tanks especially end game as you mention and people know this. So when SE gives gear to warriors which puts the focus of tank on them it is kinda annoying, because as we level we tank less and less but they keep making gear which focus us as tanks more and more I.E. making it useless. Yes and I know there are other JSE that is dual based but those help both jobs if this one was maybe +2 enm and +4 str that would be good. I mean the pld won't need the +4 str but would be happy to get the +2 enm and the war wouldn't want the +2 enm really but would love the +4 str. I mean +28 hp?... look at the other JSE and tell me how good is the +28 hp they giving warriors.

Um... Kyizen.. News Flash WAR is a premiere tank at end game, and if you don't know that you are truly a fool. With all the enmity plus gear and the damage out put of a WAR you can easily hold hate, plus the fact that at endgame you have access to both of the Ninja Cicada shells Utsu 1 and 2. So you can
1. Blink tank just as good as NIN
2. Have all the enmity + that PLD has
3. Do assloads more damage than PLD so you don't need flash
4. Even though it doesn't help much later on, you still have voke

So, in conclusion I have to say WAR goes from Tank to DD and then back to Tank/DD as the game progresses. And if you can't see that you are a wonderful useful tank late in the game you shouldn't be playing as a WAR...that is all.

You want to know why? It's because WARRIOR IS THE ONLY JOB WITH PROVOKE. No other job learns this ability only if they sub WAR. So don't complain about adding alil enimity especialy if you have an emergency situation where you need the hate you need that added hate. Just for the fact if your NIN or PLD die. WAR is still a tank people just look at it as a DD because of the heavy damage from Great Axe or Dual Axes.

First off use periods please. ^^
Welcome to the game btw, and yes it is only RARE/EX whihc means you cannot sell this in AH or if I am correct even a store, but who would want to :p
And if my math is correct, the way people interperate the different stats of armor like this one with enmity plus for WAR and PLD and the HP plus will make people put this up for like 800,000 since people are crazy some times. Look at the price for Raise III, it saves YOU experience, and lots of it, and you put it for 1 million on most servers. Thanks. This armor can be something that might be able to help you live and you'll put it for alot of gil. Off topic though.

It is. And it so messes with my current set up.

IM head and legs. Gallant boots. Rush gloves (picture level 7 leather gloves). And gold armor. Could I be any MORE random?

Still, I like it. I don't like that I gave up 2def and 1vit for +2 eminity and +28hp, but beh. Can't have it all.
