No, this would not be good for White Mage in that aspect. While it's possible that it might help slightly, the amount of MP you give a party member back always seems to be capped. Now Devotion takes some of my HP and gives it to a party member in MP. For me, Devotion NEVER gives more than 220 MP back to someone, whether I have 400 HP or my usual 880 HP.

So I can't see this being very helpful for a White Mage. UNLESS however, the amount of HP the WHM loses is percentage based, but even in that sense, 80 HP wouldn't dramatically increase that small percentage of your HP anyway.

Actually Devotion and Martyr are both based on 25% of your max HP. The higher your HP the more you'll be able to restore to other party members. As a Tarutaru i'm only restoring around 180mp with my Devotion so this would definately help increase the potency of those abilities.
New whm ablities

With devotion and martyr based on whm HP, I could see this being some exclent gear for a whm to macro in with those abilites.
Yeah

Prices jolted from 12mil+ now down to 4-5mil on Remora. Prime piece for a PLD or any job with low HP and already had good gear for that matter.

Ive been wanting this for some time.
No particular reason.
I guess ill prolly buy it on impulse, and i usually do.
But i tend to solo ALOT as BRD/NIN and i like my HP ;)

Over 10 mil on leviathan, I'm gonna try to cook up some LS members to help me out with this thing. BTW : Which is easier / better drop rates, unless they are equal?

an easy fight to attain this mantle

ENM75 Bearclaw Pinnacle - Battle "Holy Cow".

This ENM has yeilded 2 gigant mantles for our party now in about 12 attempts. This is w/o a doubt an item that all 75 PLDs want. Sold both of the mantles we got for 5.5mil each on Garuda.

Just take 4 - 6 ppl lv 75. Kite the cow around with gravity on it.. piece of cake.

Remember tho.. you can only do this fight once every 5 earth days, and sometimes the drops will suck.

yet again SE adds in a bit more flexability for your back armor instead of everyone having the same old cape or mantle

wow, as if there weren't enough good capes in this game (indeed, there is not ^^). Guess the 80 hp would be most useful to plds, tarutarus and mithra especially.

At least this is an item you can't really GET until you can use it; unlike some OTHER things which shall remain nameless >_< (scorpion harness ring a bell?)

EDIT: just looked at the history, 5 sold, last one for 8 million -_-;

OK, This is the BEST mantle for End game PLD period. HP is king in end game. I am a hume PLD and with my HNM tanking gear i have 1650 HP with out food. This is awesome for me. I do have this mantle, but it is no cheap on Titan this goes for around 8 million. There have been 2 sold on AH for 8mil. I have seen some JP HNM LS PLDs with this but i have seen only 1 other NA PLD with this on Titan. Well these are hard to come by on Titan so if you want this Super mantle u better start saving. Well good luck and have fun with your adventures

Sry Mate. but WRONG.
Valor Cape > Gigant Mantle. free too.
Shadow Mantle > Gigant Mantle. also free.

Most of the time, Rare/Ex gear will always be better than the crap gear you buy off the AH.

Wanna know why it's so expensive? (besides being a pain in the *** to get)
Cause silly people look at this as their final end game armor. And it's AH'able! WOW what a good stroke of fortune!....

Right. As if anything worthwhile in this game was AH'able.
Sattva Ring, Valor cape/armor, even Koenig stuffs.

Sorry if I seem a lil agitated with this post, but I'm tired of every PLD and their grandmothers being cookie cutter PLD who waste their gil on overrated, NOT final endgame gear.

EDIT: Original post you are shooting down existed before there was such a thing as Dynamis-Valkurm (where valor cape comes from). And in april 2005 how many people did you know.. or even see wearing a shadow mantle.. zero, thats right u don't have to reply cause we know the answer ^^.

Sry Mate. but your WRONG too.

time is money - in the time u spend to get your hands on either valor cape or the insanely rare shadow mantle you coulda farmed enough gil to buy yourself many gigant mantles or defeated the ENM several times until it dropped the mantle. items are only "free" to someone without perspective and no appreciation for the alliances of people who help you get rare/ex gear (collectivly you and friends/LS pay alot more in man hours for rare/ex)! however i will agree that both back pieces u mention are superior to gigant.

Most of the time? or Always? make up your mind!

simply a retarded statement. first of all shouldn't have appologized.. should've erased whole post. second, i guess people should spend their gil on food and fireworks in your opinion. third, even you indicate its the 3rd best back gear PLD can wear and the only one you can buy on AH... lol 3 options out there for pld end-game back slot, i guess no matter what you do your gonna be cut by that same cookie cutter it seems ^^. fool

I'd like to add Boxer's Mantle to the list next to Valor Cape or Shadow Mantle as one PLDs may want to consider over this if they have an LS that does regular Limbus runs. It pained me to think of selling my Gigant, which was my only back piece for a very long time since it was introduced into the game and I sold my precious Behemoth Mantle; but I don't use it for sword and shield tanking, and if I need to kite I can turn to one of the great values in the auction house: High Breath Mantle; 5 DEF, Enchantment: +38HP, and +5 enmity with an enchantment that lasts 30 minutes (you can't unequip it while effect is active, but the recast is also 30 minutes).

People will choose what works for their situation; my character is Hume and I've merited HP, so I'm ok with not using this mantle anymore. It's still a very nice piece of gear with a huge stat boost.
