lovely piece

I must say it's a lovely piece of armor. I swapped my Federation Tekko's for this. I am going to miss the Acc. +3, but the attack bonus on the Kote is really, really nice. Had a noticable increase in damage against enemies, and with food and Berserk on, my damage gets up there. Love them and worth every penny.
630k :(

I must be one of the luckiest ppl. I decided to camp for my kote and only waited 5 minutes and Mee spawned right in front of me and I got the drop. I was a 43 monk/thf and I had a 41 war/thf friend w/ me. We literally camped him for 5 minutes. We thought our luck was so good that we went for Fumas and the 2 people we had beaten to the Kote called in there LS to help them. Quu never even spawned while I was there. But it was all good cuz i got the Kote!
1/1 Mee Deggi

Holeeee shiiit. I started campin this guy today. First time i was up against 2 monks. Pwned. But then an hour later, I was up against a SAM and a BLM. An Oracle spawned out of reach and the BLM pulled it. Looked like the BLM was havin a little trouble, so he took a while, then the 2nd spawn(2 spawn every 12 min) was Mee, popped on the SAM. THE SAM WAS AFK! So I get the pull. I GOT THE DROP! First NM drop in my life. Then I ran to Quu Domi, he popped on me, I beat out a 74PLD in adamant armor, and a blm and a mnk. No drop tho. I was also a DRK/WAR, no THF sub.

1/2 Now =(.

Later on in the day(around 5PM) I have JP competition. Yes, It popped purple =(.

BTW, I have had him pop 1:03 after death, 1:45 after death, and like 2:00 after death. Every time there has been people there to kill placeholders.

BTW, a tip, 2 Yags spawn on the platform every 12 minutes(never less, but usally more) after they die. So you don't have to concentrate very often, just for like 5 min every ten min =D
Something to it...

I just wanted to share that I think there is something to the rumor that the chance/rate of rare drop off NMs is in part determined by the level difference between yourself and the NM, and the number of people in your party and their level differences as well.

I'm a 39 WHM/THF on Asura. To fulfill a debt for a rabbit charm a friend gave me, I've been camping the kote on and off for 2 months with no luck. Last night my husband brought his 40 war/nin to help me. Obviously, as a mage, my fastest pull spell can't compete with an instant provoke. Over those 2 months, I didn't get to fight Mee once. Last night, my husband voked Mee out from under 5 other campers. He used his 2hour (as did Mee) and the fight went really well. The icing on the cake was that the kote dropped for us.

So I was able to repay my debt after only fighting Mee once...

Anyways, just wanted to share. ^^

Congrats to whoever said they got their Kote!

To be honest...500k on Fairy these days for Kote....its retarded. Half a million for gear that can only be used by three jobs, and is usually replaced by AF time. No thanks, this is one mob I'll camp if I want it that bad. Not to mention the mob is only 35-36. Jujitsu Gi drops off a 40ish mob and only sells for 150k. Man that +20 attack must be nice...

Yes, they ARE nice, about 10-20 more damage per swing from what I've seen so far, this being on east prey or DC mobs.

Instead of camping the Punisher, I just got 2 Lizzy drops. Much easier, no camp bots, and no **** waiting for it.

As for the people who switch, I can understand why. +20 ATK isn't that big later on when your ATK is in the hundreds, and the +STR on the AF gloves helps raise overall damage. Plus, bonus to Boost helps balance out the missing +ATK.

Then again, Temple Gloves are level 54 items, and these are 34. I'll be happy using mine until I can actually use my AF gloves, and might sell em then.

Remember, for how much you spend on these, you'll get about the same back when you sell them later on, that's the only reason I did it.

20 ATK = about 40 STR (and I haven't seen any gloves with +40 STR yet)
These gloves are better than any other gloves if you are damage dealer. You see 75's using them all the time.

Uh, no. When people say stuff like that it infuriates me. 40 STR. Are you CRAZY? So wearing these things effectively doubles your strength, huh? Oh wait, no. Because that's NOT HOW IT WORKS.

Example: 2 VIT = 1 def. But you still see Paladins of all levels wearing the applicable +VIT rings instead of Phalanx rings or what have you. Why? Because the stats do more than their visible "+to X" bonuses. +20 ATK is not +40 STR in any way shape or form.

As soon as I get back into the game, I'm going to start saving up for this. Won't be too much longer before I can use it.

Saving up 500k gil isn't as hard as you might think =/ it's frustrating and no one wants to do it, but if you farm the right stuff, or mine (like I did), you can get these in 2-4 weeks of hard work (I slacked off for more than half the month I went mining...). It's worth it too. The kote make a noticeable difference ^_^ if you wanna make good money, farm in Pashhow Marshlands or Delkfutt's Tower, whichever your level allows, and for mining, Palborough or Gusgen (Gusgen requires Sneak to get around safely). Good luck~

Learn how to spell (and make sense -- none of that IDIOT SPEAK) and maybe someone will answer you.

You're kidding right? I mean, you're not actually begging someone to either spend 4-500K or many hours camping just so they can give it to you, are you?

Today I was camping Mee. I'm level 54 and I still don't have a pair of Ochiudo's, so I figured I'd give it a shot. I'll probably be getting my gloves eventually, so I figure I'll just wear them until I do and then sell them for the gil.

Anyway, I'd been camping for a few hours, with no luck. Usually about 3-6 people camping with me. This one JP, Bridges, was the only one that has been camping with me the whole time - he'd not gotten a shot at Mee either.

So just now, this whm comes walking up to the platform around spawn time and claims Mee when he spawns. He fights for a while and I'm trying to communicate with Bridges - I don't know Japanese, but I just thought I'd try anyway.. misery loves company and all that I guess.

Hopo disconnects. Bridges vokes Mee. So I cheer him on for a bit then Hopo reconnects. What's Bridges do? He disengages and lets Hopo have Mee while it beats on him.

I just thought I'd share that with you guys. While you camp this or another NM.. ask yourself, would you do the same?
RE: Bridges
# Apr 19 2005 at 9:05 AM Rating: Decent
Bridges - honestly, no i probably would not have done the same. i would have considered myself fortunate Deggi's name popped free to /eng and just prayed i got the drop. the previous combatant D/C's.. their misfortune, not yours/mine. i will, however, say that it was a mighty honorable and generous thing Bridges did. /kneel <Bridges>

i had posted in this string back in November about wanting a pair of O Kote. taking another look at that post made me nearly spew my coffee.. i'd forgotten how 'cheap' they used to be priced -in Nov they were 500k on Cerberus. i have since attained a pair back in January via the AH for a 975k steal, the average was 1mil+ in P Hist. it was a joyous occasion, to be sure. i felt like i had finally attained REAL Samurai status. actually i managed to get a bunch of sam gear at 50th that made me feel kinda leet. ^^

yes, 50th.. no Kote for me until then. spent about 2mil reequiping from gear i'd used since the early 30's. felt real swank too, actually got props from a Drk on the damage i was putting out.

i certainly dont make gil hand over fist. didnt then, dont now. since i REFUSE to fall into the Gilbuyer category, i did the only thing i could manage to make a huge profit in a 'short' time. i went NM hunting in January. January 12th, 2005, best day of my FFxi life to date. jobbed Sam/Thf, i actually managed to get Emp Hairpin, Night Cape, and Leaping Boots drops in an astonishing 8 hours total time. voila!, sold drops and reequiped.

55th Sam now (yeah, only 5 levels since January. lol) and the O Kote are becoming less and less a useful tool to me. i'm finding i need to gear more towards Dex and Acc. i will probably end up selling them when i can get around to wearing the Haubergeon. with price ratio's between the two, selling the Kote should net me half the gil i'd need for the Haubergeon. yay... that only leaves me 1.5mil to acquire. >.<

did i mention i am a Craftless twit? ^^!

On Kujata, I started saving for these when they were going for 340-350k. Today, they are going for 500k. That's quite an increase. Makes a Sam cry.
