Contagion Transfer

Contagion Transfer is used by the cockatrices in the Moa Constrictors KSNM - It swaps the target's buffs with the user's debuffs. So, let's say you're Gravitied and the mob casts Stoneskin, you use the shield - now you have Stoneskin and the mob is gravitied.

Hey Starfire, still have that shield? Can I buy it off ya? <.<

Use it?

I believe it means that when using this shield and you shield block, you drain the dmg much like DRK 2-hour ability or Poison/Curse the mob hitting you.... based off what the dictionary tells me....

Someone surely must have used the sheild by now; any solid answers?

Contagion means to transfer a disease or a virus... Not that that means anything. The translation may not be right...

Comes from a bcnm in balgais dias. Heres the link : http://ffxi.cannotlinkto/itemdb/6194

Going for 4-500k on bismarck and just appeared for the first time at ah 9-29.

Looks like a very interesting piece of equipment but not worth 500k IMO.

Incase you haven't noticed FFXI doesn't have necromacer.

Just a follow up.

This shield is obtained from the KS30 Atropus Orb in Balga Dais, called Boa (something) which involves killing 2 Cockatrices.

Both can be slept. Therefore, Ele-seal sleepII one of them and <full attack> on the other.

Does standard **** moves, and ALSO Contagion Transfer!!!

Idea is NOT to give status effect on the *****.

What it does is, TRANSFER all good buffs that you have (Blink, Aquaveil, Stoneskin, Shell, Protect, Haste, Regen, Refresh etc..) to himself!!! .... AND transfer all his BAD buffs which you casted on him earlier, TO everyone in the party.

We wiped the first time coz all of us were:-

1) Paralyzed
2) Slowed
3) Silenced
4) Choked
5) Gravitied
6) Bioed
7) Requimed
8) Elegied

We were hitting it for 0 coz it had our stoneskin on, and our BLM's spells were hitting for 1/4 dmg coz Shell4! He had RegenIII on from our tank, etc... dangggg

2nd time we won... Didn't buff ourselves and went it, and didn't enfeeble it apart from Paralyze and slow.

Did contagion transfer, and I (whm) easily paralyna our ninja tank.

Dropped **** skin, this shield, gold ore, Morgenstern (WHM CLUB)!!!, etc..

Good luck, and btw, we hold our record on pandy! weeeeee
seems to me

It seems to me that this shield would be used to exchange status with an enemy. Maybe if enemy casts protect/shell on itself and slow/paralyze on you, you can use this enchantment to swap statuses. I believe there is a promyvion boss that does something similar?

If i'm right, this would be useful to have against malboro enemy^^

I think this shield will share the buff of the user with the entire party (within range).

Share the crack. Whm have auto regen at lvl 25 (lvl 70ish party) and get poisona even earlier. If i died from poison at lvl 70ish id probably quit (but then again i know how to play) As a Whm I usually end up dead first in most cases and usually followed by party members if mob is too tough, I hope your desire to kill your healer finds you next on the list.
BTW when you tell people to use a dictonary try to use words in the dictionary like "I'd" or "I would" or "poison".

... this shield will absorbs poison ect from party members to thyself. It does have a wait after use and only 20 charges. It does have a VIT and Hp bonus which would help the user if the shield does bahave in such a manner. Curious to know if it "absorbs" from user party single party target of single target. another guess would be the absorbtion of the poison ect to the shield thus removing status from the user. This crafted, quested, dropped? I see a picture but little info submitted as to how it was acquired. Also is this item a 30 second recast time of 1 hour? I assume the 30 seconds is the wait time til effect is usable after equipping and the 1:00:00 is the actual recast time.

Contagion transfer might mean it transfers a poison effect into something along the lines of a regen. Transforming poison to cure, but thats was just my first idea.
Clouds don't worry about falling into the sea because they cant a)fall or b)drown.
But they are free to believe they can, and they may fear if they wish.

It sounds like, if you are infected by a debuff, you can transfer it back to it's sender, but that's only a guess.

If i recall contagion transfer was the move of a mammet 19 epsilon in the CoP Riverne A bc, it allowed the mammet to absorb any dmg it would take and turn it into health instead (like drain). I could be wrong tho its been a long time since i did that bc

Yeah, I think you can prolly transfer your status effects to either a different party member or a mob... lets hope for the latter

I looked it up at dictionary.com...

con·ta·gion ( P ) Pronunciation Key (kn-tjn)

Disease transmission by direct or indirect contact.
A disease that is or may be transmitted by direct or indirect contact; a contagious disease.
The direct cause, such as a bacterium or virus, of a communicable disease.
Psychology. The spread of a behavior pattern, attitude, or emotion from person to person or group to group through suggestion, propaganda, rumor, or imitation.
A harmful, corrupting influence: feared that violence on television was a contagion affecting young viewers.
The tendency to spread, as of a doctrine, influence, or emotional state.

Maybe it allows you to send a status effect to another person?

LOL... imagine a mob that charms, and you have this equiped. It could then move the charm around to other random PT members...

But ya. I have no idea what it does :/

it couldn't move charm around, in order to move the effect around, you'd have to "use" the shield, and you cant do anything while charmed

Since I had no clue what "Contagion" meant, I looked it up. How this defination will apply to the game I have no clue. Here's what I got from Webster online:

Main Entry: con·ta·gion
Pronunciation: k&n-'tA-j&n
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French & Latin; Middle French, from Latin contagion-, contagio, from contingere to have contact with, pollute
1 a : a contagious disease b : the transmission of a disease by direct or indirect contact c : a disease-producing agent (as a virus)
2 a : POISON b : contagious influence, quality, or nature c : corrupting influence or contact
3 a : rapid communication of an influence (as a doctrine or emotional state) b : an influence that spreads rapidly.

Could it be that when Contagion Transfer is activated and you are hit by a Mob, and your shield is used, you would get a HP drain effect? That was my first thought on the "Absorbing" Shield. I guess only time will tell and someone else before me will have the answer. I am far from 71, currently 46 RDM.
