/equip egg sing first song
/equip instrument to play second song
/equip egg again for the boosts

this way your first song gets +skill and then you get the bonus of latent

your second song won't wear off when you remove your instrument, but you need an instrument to sing the second song.

You start with cure as a WHM, you don't need to buy it.

Unless, of course, you start as a job other than WHM.

I believe the corsair roll effect also triggers the attributes of the Orphic egg
Uses for the Egg

I ran up to a random rabbit and threw it at it killing it. Was a great use for a shiny egg, Maby someone can have the honner of throwing it at a NM or somthing or the Shadow Lord just for the BS braging rights of "YEAH! I through a shiny egg at the shadow lord!" etc etc
Nice for melee jobs.

um... BRD songs makes the Latent effects activate so you would be able to use the Latent Effect maybe once or twice... Happy Egg or a Ranged Weapon would be better used there

Ok . . . duh . . .
But if you get a party with a bard, and you have the egg. . . then it would still be nice to use. . .
activating latent

to activate the Latent effect u have to have a song buff, any song buff works.

Looks like a good item if you're a Bard, but I dunno if this prevents you from having anything in the range slot (like wind instruments). The latent is activated by having a song on you.

It does, but you could put in an /equip macro after the song is played and it would give the effect.
