Wonder why this isn't able to be used by RDM's.



Meh, oh well.

You know, I think this might be one of the better options for WHMs soloing. Sure it's not quite the +10 accuracy and +10 evasion of an Optical, but the +10 Ranged Accuracy on an Optical in largely wasted on WHM. Plus, +2 attack and 18 DEF certainly never hurt while soloing.

And certainly seems to be easier to get to boot, which is good when you're only using the hat for soloing really.

you're missing the secret use for this item. It's really here to make it LOOK like you're wearing optical hat =p

This has been on AH on Unicorn server for quite some time. I am actually surprised it is listed here as a "New Item". As far as price i think it goes roughly 15-20k which isnt that bad if u can use it and don't want to stop leveling just to get Optical which can take quite some time. Took me 4-5 seperate attempts just to get enough people willing to help. Even then we had to offer a reward for the one white mage that went with us. Each time we would spend several hours among the 3-4 of us that wanted a hat asking friends and LSes for help. Some people are just greedy self-centered bastards.

Notice Post Dates. This was listed back when he posted as a "New Item".

But back to the point at hand- Allakhazam usually doesn't focus on every item, as there are a -lot- of them. They usually take up their time with new items, items in demand or have experienced popularity. Plus, perhaps your server was one of the first to find/craft/quest this hat, while other servers may still not have even heard of it.

As for the item itself, I can see it being used as a 'sympathy item' to try and convince a Linkshell to help the wearer. I know that in my Linkshell, we've got two or three amazing Dark Knights, one of which does not have the Optical Hat despite being level 71. He does everything he can to try and guilt the other high levels in the Linkshell to help him, and this hat could very well persuade them in his favor.

But other than that, it's good for people who don't get much help from their Linkshell. Although for Dark Knights, the Celata is much better (and stylish, in my opinion).

Ummm.... no. I won't have 17+ friends over 70 by the time I reach 75, but I'd be very interested to know what resource you're using to come up with that figure... I play in a perma party with 5 other friends. We don't play outside of the perma. The rest of you all scare us.

Hah! That has to be one of the funniest posts I've ever read :-) Thank you, cthonian, you just made my day.

You also made my mind up. I am not having too much accuracy problems now, and I have been thinking that the O.Hat would just be for show for me (for now, that +10 Evasion will really help once I get Ninja this high). I could scrounge up an alliance of 70+ people to help, my biggest problem is I run my Clan/LS, and I invariably wind up having to help others instead of myself. I tend to be behind in missions and quests simply because I spend so much time repeating the same ones over and over again to help those in my clan.

Long story short, I rarely get help from those that I've helped (sad, but true. Think I'm exaggerating? Read this).

So, because I don't really need the O.Hat now, I'll just get this lesser cousin and hold off until someone else in my group needs one and I can gather up enough folks to do the run twice :-)
Herms...

This is fairly weak compared to Optical Hat, which I don't have, but still isn't too bad. Not a lot of each bonus but it all adds up. A little here, a little there, still...there are many other items that add more but do they add as much defense?

This would be a decent substitution for you "until" you get your O-hat when those /tells beg you to join your party. This has even happened to me, a Thief, so hey...you never know!

Ummmm... yes. For those of us who don't care to be involved in a huge linkshell that demands more time and input than a full time job or marriage, abuse NM camps, buy gil, and/or pay high levels to do it for us. Then there are people who can't get an optical hat for other reasons... occasionally they like to see the sky, go fishing, work on cars, date real live human beings, eat at restaurants, see movies, travel, and otherwise leave the house once in a while. Take your condescending attitude elsewhere. No one likes you.
