No additional MP Boost past 27 no matter the job.

...I noticed there were still a few questions about the mp per level.

Going through and reading the posts here has boosted my confidence alot. I managed to buy a trump crown from the Jeuno AH for 4,000 gil on Ifrit. Needless to say I am exceedingly happy.

I sit here and read posts and laugh that people would pay millions on unproven beliefs of ungodly hidden abilities on items.

If I had millions of gil I would using it to make more millions of gil not to buy rumors.

Besides who cares if you can get a bunch of rare/ex drops better? It's not worth the price. And the increase in HP/MP? I will stick with other options that don't hurt my wallet.

And btw...it's 350k on my server (Pandemonium) I wonder why the price would be so low if this item was all everyone said it was. Next time get some undenyable proof and post that. Don't talk about what you wish it did.

Also when I am in dunes I get the subjob item drops very often. This doesn't surprise me 'cause I already have my subjob. Oh and FYI true TH doesn't affect the drop rate of Rare/Ex items. (Or so everyone has said.) Then again most of you would believe anything, so you make up your own mind.

yeah...that blows for you guys lol... it only cost me 400k in Gilgamesh...but im not sure how the incrament system works...does it increase the hp/mp raised by wearing the crown or does it increase base hp/mp of the job itself?

this caps at 27 hp/mp not sure if one goes up faster than the other does it matter no. i think it's good for bst brd and pld to a lvl. but by lvl 75 it's meh turbin is better.

go to ffxiepodia for info. I was stupid and bought it to see for myselk hope some one buys it so i didn't waste **** loads of gil and just waste half a **** load.

I'm a level 45 bst and trump crown only gives me +18 hp/mp so far. Thankfully it was pretty cheap (surprisingly cheaper and easier to find/obtain than the Kosshin I used to use (back when Trump Crown was quite literally priceless for some mysterious reason).

I was completely shocked and did a big **eyeroll** when I see all the "omg 1t haz teh 1337nezz TH I swearz" on Alla and almost no real information on the effects of the item... For shame, Alla users!

Anyway if anyone has solid info on the MP/HP increase increments, it would be appreciated. And fyi to those who insist on continuing to lie: the amount of HP and MP + it gives will always be equal.

Oh and although I'm a skeptic of the hidden effect: TH thing, I killed an Ochu today and got 2 Malboro Vines, which I didn't think was possible without TH. It was the first time in 10 levels of using the crown that I noticed any unusual drops though.

this is like 1 million gil on titan i'm a galka and want to do a few mage jobs was wondering is this best or should i just upgrade hairpins instead.

Fairal hairpin is 1.5 million so kinda just wondering.

Is the increase based on job and race or just job? If race comes into play might be worth getting.

Even if you dont believe in the TH effect (which I don't) it's still a very nice piece of gear for several jobs at that level. I used it on PLD, BLU and BRD and for mp challenged races it would be nice for BST too.

I've equipped this into BCNMs and I didn't get ****. The Treasure hunter rumor is ridiculous. At the level you can use this it can certainly be one of the best equipments available but when you get to a higher level, you can unequip it for other things.

At lvl 45 you get 18 HP/MP and the cap is 27 MP from what we have discovered from testing. Don't fall for this kind of stuff as posted on this page:

Got the crown a few days ago after months of putting it aside cause I had other gear to buy. I didn't think it would give TH but equipping it to my lvl 20 Bst I went to lvl in the Dunes. I killed 4 Ghouls and got 4 skulls. Killed 8 Flys got 6 Worms. Maybe just luck but it seems odd to get so many so often.

I'm wearing this crown now and I'm not getting that at all.

yes I'm a little late to say this, like 2yrs late :3

Treasure Hunter does not affect chests. This is primarily the reason why ppl don't pick up THF for BCNM/ENM/KSNM runs unless they are required for hate or evasion to tank (which is never, I believe).

This crown does not seem to be that rare at all on Kujata. I counted at least 10 sold in 1 months time, and price dropped from 8 mil to 2.8 (for which i bought) from march to april. The question i have is to those who have noticed major increases in drops, could you detail the conditions in which this crown seems to work more? Ive heard a little about being more effective for mages, some say more effective while solo, some say more effective for NM drops only, some say more effective for rare and rare/exclusive drops only. Does anyone have data or opinions on how i can get the most out of my crown?

Jp's players are swearing to me up and down this thing just gives "Empty Killer" trait like the shade gear and ive been using this crown from lvl 23 or 24 on smn till now at lvl 60 and still continue to use it due to the hp/mp buffs and honestly using it this long theres no difference in drops on anything if i were to take it off and farm with it off, but im still not going to say no but after using it for about 7 months now i dont think theres anything more special then what meets the eye even farming in the promy's i dont notice any difference with memorys etc, also while melee'ing i have yet to see anything lead me to believe it has teh shade killer effect as well oh well though i wont say if it does or doesnt have hidden stats/effects but i have yet to notice them using the crown as long as i have. Anyways if your a thf out there dont waste the money on it unless you feel like testing it yourself and are pretty sure you can sell it back, ive tried it on my 41thf as well no difference in drops with it on, i still find more stuff with thf @ 41 with normal TH then i do on my mage with the Trump Crown. Though imo i think its one of the best smns head pieces to equip if you arent comfortable not being able to use head gear with a vermy cloak. Good luck with testing or whatnot ^^

well the price on my server for the crown is still going up and these things are rare as can be. there have only been like 8-9 sold total and the last three prices go up 2-4 mil each. If any of you doubt the effectiveness of this thing, check your servers ah in jeuno and look at the names of the ppl purchasing the crown. On my server they are all notorious thfs, that have made alot of money off of nm hunts. the word on the crown is creepin out too, ive been getting random /tells from time to time asking if i have it still(**** yea), and if i will sell it(**** no!)!

I let a blm friend of mine use this to parse and it seems that this crowns TH kicks in more-so for mages than while i used it as thf, however my drop rates were improved as well. Also it seems the TH boost kicks in more on NMs rather than just all drops. Yesterday my hnmls killed 3 nms ( lucky day) and we got all 3 drops (only one was a high money drop).

HP for my Thief

Hi guys.

I have recently gotten my hands on Trump Crown. I am currently raising Bard, my BST is 75, and have a Thief 66, so I have many uses for it. I personally didn't believe the TH+1, so I wanted to test it out myself, even if I don't come to a soilid conclusion.

While heading out to test my Trump Crown with my Thief, I checked my HP/MP to see how much I have gained. I was shocked to find out that my Thief 66 had gained 39 HP to be exact; MP 25.

Also, while wearing this on my Bard during experience points party without Thief, I have seen semi-rare drops quite often; HQ Crab shells in Boyada, keys, Lucky Egg, etc.

There is definitely some mysterious effects on this Crown.

I saw some people's posts on the "Treasure hunter" and not being able to get a pt myself to do the ksnm, I bought one on AH... I really like the thing, and I really really really wanted to see if it did in-fact have TH. <.< so needless to say I was only 2nd person to buy on AH XD **** person had it up for 10 mil. orz~ but I didn't know if I'd ever find one again, so anyway *poof* there goes 10 mil and I start my tests. I tried it as thf55 main /thf and no TH at all, one thing i'm convinced of after 2 months is that yes, this thing does have its own TH!!! so here i am starting to camp NM's ect. now <.< started my VE camping... killed him 3x and got hairpin 2x >< freaking got outlotted tho /sigh oh well. Killed LL 2x but no drop been taking out my frustration on leech and got 3 ruby's in 20 kills. Farmed 24 silk thread in less than an hour (holy ****!) meh, anyway there's more stuff I've tested it out on but this is long enough for me, hope you guy's get to test it out too ^^/ gl on getting the drop from that ksnm tho if you can't find one of these... after I bought mine people started putting up on ah for 3 mil. on Carbuncle.

trump1 ( P ) Pronunciation Key (trmp)
A suit in card games that outranks all other suits for the duration of a hand. Often used in the plural.
A card of such a suit.
A trump card.
A key resource to be used at an opportune moment.
Informal. A reliable or admirable person.

I recently finally completed the pursuit to get the "Trump Crown". My close friend's I started the game with (Drk/Thf-Thf/Nin-Rng/Nin-Rng/Nin-Brd/whm-Nin/war) tried out this KS30 battle a few months ago, did it off and on, and about two weeks ago finally got it!
Not alot of information was found on it, sadly. It took all of our 210+ KS's to get it finally!
I couldn't help but read the posts on here, and wanted to put my input on this!

Rumors originally started that a certain "~" Provided a +1 MP and HP after every level after 20. This isn't true, I believe its 2 MP and HP after every 10 levels, then at 75 it adds another two.
*A Blm put it on and only recieved 27. hp/mp
*A Rng put it on and only recieved 27. hp/mp
*A Whm put it on and only recieved 27. hp/mp
*A Smn put it on and only recieved 40. hp/mp
*A Thf put it on and only recieved 27. hp/mp
*A Brd put it on and only reiceved 27. hp/mp
I haven't tried it on any other classes then just that.

I have noticed somethings though that maybe other people have noticed, my drop rate while solo-ing has increased suffiently...in EXP parties I got beastmen seals and kindred seals about every few battle, maybe I didn't notice it before though so i'm going to exclude that.
I believe that this is what this is in a unique but different perspective.
We gathered together and we fought Simurgh and got Strider Boots Reraise +1, Vile Elixer, and a fancy fire crystal. This was about a week ago. After seeing the drop's.
A Few other ground NM's also got drops after max 4 times of camping them, 5 would be pushing it. I wish there's a way to do snap shot's on the PS2 with the Log or Treasure menu open to host some snap shots. Anyone who obtains this, don't get rid of it I really believe this is something you keep until you retire from game! If you ever find it for sale, try to get it because the KS30 battle is very annoying and takes too much work. Please post feed back! I'd like to try it on a blackmage sometime and see if it add's or subtracts anmity or magic attack bonus.
Something's up with this crown for sure.

75 PLD/WAR gets +27 HP and +27 MP.

Bought one to test it in case it gave 40 HP like with SMN, that would make it the best HP headpiece in the game for Spirits Within - anyhow, Kaiser Schaller/Koenig Schaller remain the best with +32/30 HP.

Yea, this does not give +27 i keep forgetting to update this **** thing when i posted awhile ago, apparently from what i have found out this does not give TH people are just making it out that way to sell it BUT several JP players have swore up and down that this is just like the Shade gear it adds that empty killer stuff or whatever, on my 60 smn it gives me just a little more then 30hp i cant quite remember ill check when i get home tonight as for mp its somewhere in the 20's again i havent played smn in almosst 3 or 4 months, but sadly no TH from all the jp players instead the hidden effect is the empty killer effect, but the mp and hp balance are not the same on my smn indeed one is higher then the other and it is HP it tends to put me right at 30 i believe and mp is at about 24, ill follow up tomorrow when i come back to work.

ok lets clear up everything about this crown since I now own it.

I am a lvl 70 whm atm and yes all the rumors about it are true however.... at lvl 70 whm it only gives me 10 more MP than the noble's crown.
I then was curious and let a 75 smn friend try it on and at lvl 75 it only gives +40HP +40MP with of course the +2 chr

however with my 51 blm it gives 10MP less than the gold hairpin

So as with all equipment in the game it is your own discression as to which is better:

AF/AF2 headpieces since mnd & int is on a few of them as well as spell interupt down, haste and other random stuff (enfeeb magic etc.etc.)

Zenith crown/+1 - 10 more MP than the trump but at the cost of -50 HP, however there is wayyyyy more def on the zenith crown

fairie hairpin

or the lvl 20 trump crown compare the notes and discuss.

However this **** thing has only sold off the ah 3 times on Ifrit and I'm not getting rid of it period because I like it and I worked my taru *** off to pay for it!!!

It seems that nobody on any servers have even seen this item in AH history, does it even exist in the game yet? or is it just another one of those "hidden" items found inside the game's code, like the lvl 90 weapons etc...

If this item increases by atleast one MP every level, it would give more MP thain a Zenith crown at lvl 75... AND it gives HP...
I think its like +69HP/MP at lvl 75

God forbid you do the BC yourself and buy the crown minus your cut if it drops.

He's only a 52 bst.. he wouldn't last 2 seconds in an uncapped bcnm.

I'm in the same situation on Asura - level 52 bard and so far no one has put this thing up on AH. I'm still crossing my fingers though ^.^

Garrisons are lvl 20 capped BCNM-style battles where you fight waves of certain mobs while defending NPCs (called recruits) from those same mobs. The number of mobs you fight and the number of recruits you protect are based on how many people go into the garrison fight. Once you defeat the first wave of mobs, and if your recruits are still standing, the next wave comes. The last wave is an NM, though I'm unsure of the level. These fights are done at the various outposts around Vana'diel. To activate the battle you need a certain rare/ex item associated to that region, and you must be a citizen of the nation currently in control of that region. I.e. You need to be from San D'Oria to turn in the red cryptex in Ronfaure to being the Garrison fight there. Only the person that hands in that item needs to meet the requirements. It doesn't apply to the rest of the party and/or alliance members.

The items/regions I've come across are as follows:
Ronfaure / Red Cryptex
Gustaberg / Darksteel Engraving
Beadeaux / Silver Engraving
Altepa / Dhalmel Leather Missive
Xarcabard / Bahemoth Missive

I've only done these battles twice in Gustaberg, and it was mostly the lag that got us killed. Also, the Garrison gear you see at the AH are drops from these battles. Good luck.

Actually, the cap for Garrisons varies by region. The only three with a level 20 cap are Gustaberg, Sarutabaruta, and Ronfaure. I do the Saru garrison all the time in my LS on Gilgamesh. If you have a core group of skilled people and take the time to farm several starting items for the battle, they can be quite the profitable event, especially for people in their level 20s.

Can anyone with this item confirm the ~ actually means it scales upwards?
Garrison 40 has variable gear drops, which have this effect as well. Except there it means the stats vary with day and moon phase.

unfortunately for those of us hoping to get one out of the AH, it is quite doubtful that these will ever sell.... due to the fact that this lvl20 piece of gear drops from an UNCAPPED BCNM vs 1x King + 2x Queen >_< add to this that there does not seem to be any useful drops other than this out of that BCNM (oh joy! i got a "King of Coins" card... O_o what the heck is this good for?) and that it is a "Kindred Seal" BCNM and you can see why this will be so rare >_<

Actually the cards have excellent value.

When carrying one of the cards, that paticular type of Caridgan will not aggro you.

I.E. Carry the King of Cups cards will keep any Kings of Cups Cardigan from attack you.

So if going to an area of the Ruins that is Tough for you, you can carry the cards for the mobs there, and walk right on thru with no issues.

That's already been proven completely 100% false. They will still aggro you anyway.

That, or you could cast Sneak and prevent all of the Cardians from aggroing you. And how often does anyone go to that part of the ruins who isn't on a Windurst mission?

Cards agro magic users and have very strong linking power. I level in these towers all the time, and i just throw the cards away or sell them at the outposts. the cardians drop light crystals and is a easy way to get exp. My question is, if you have a card of say 2 of whatever, will that mob not link with the others. i am going to try this. if this is successfull then you could easy get exp in here. It sucks unless low level near zone do to the linking issues. and would everyone in the party need the card or would one party members card be enough to control mob? if one person needed the card and you had a party of 4 each collecting a card of each type. the whole party could go well past level 40 off just cards 2-10. hmmm.

The BCNM also drops Trainer's gloves (BST AF2) so theres another reason it'd be worth it.

Um... no this doesn't drop BST AF2 gloves, BST AF2 set is called Monster not Trainer, and AF2 is RARE/EX its not tradeable or sellable on AH as the Trainer's Gloves are

It's high level JSE specifically for BST, so it's similar to AF2; kinda like the Sha'ir set for BRD or Igquira (sp?) set for BLM. Not exactly a horrible mistake. : P

I believe (though have been unable to test it) that this crown will gain ever larger amounts of HP and MP as you gain level.

The actual stats read like this

Def: 10 HP: 14~ MP: 14~ CHR: 2

The tilde, in my experience, in FFXI signifies a numerical upward scaling.

For example, in Expeditionary Force anyone 20~ can join the Zulkheim EF. That specifically translates to "20 or higher."

This crown may very well be like those high level items in old EQ, where you could equip them at low level, but didn't gain their full effect until higher level.
