This sword belonged to Queen Mariline d'Oraguille's bodyguard, whose loyalty to his queen is legendary.

it's the second most beautiful sword in the game after sanguine sword
The best part of Final Fantasy XI is its rich storyline. It separates this game from other MMORPGs. I chose to give my character a storyline that goes along with the game's storyline. I find that this is a more fun way to play the game. Playing the game just to fight in the endgame and collect elite equipment is very boring and is totally missing the main objective of the game, which is to guide your character through the storyline which is to save the world.
Macahuitl +1 versus Save the Queen
# Jul 25 2007 at 7:52 AM Rating: Decent
Macuahuitl +1
[Main] All Races
DPS: 978 DMG:37 Delay:227 Accuracy-4 Attack+11 Enmity+4

Save The Queen
[Main] All Races
DPS: 1000 DMG:40 Delay:240 "Cover"+1 Latent effect: Accuracy+20

Obviously, the Attack +11 and the Enmity +4 on Macahuitl +1 is like *drewlz* to a PLD, when attacking normally... But using Save the Queen during a Vorpal Blade would be effing sweet... But unequipping and re-equipping a weapon kills all your TP...

*sobs into her Gallant Gauntlets* WHAT DO I DO?!?!?!?
think outside the box

so many people have problems thinking outside the box.
I just recently purchased this sword for 90k on unicorn.
from my understanding its said the latent effect is during cover.
If that is true, why not 'keep the sword equipped'
cover's cool down is very short. build tp to 100+ use an equip macro
for acc/str/mnd gear. then cover someone before you WS? O_o
seeings how both vorpal blade and swift blade are multiple hits, i see
this sword eliminating spirits within and bringing in more hate with a
300-450dmg hit per every 100tp as opposed to 500-700dmg every 300tp.
the cover+1 effect would also make this easier to do.

Moreover, The nin sub is a good idea for some situations, but in exp party i stick to the ways pld was meant to tank. war sub also offers an str boost and berserk, much more suitable for the modifiers. =)

when to cover and ws (example: before your first voke in battle)
after all, i don't know about other plds but I personally gain atleast 100tp
per battle as is. =) (65PLD/32WAR)

This sword isnt useless. I can see it used in macro for cover, or something along thos line's. But I know there are some better weapons out there that probably would be more useful for PLD.

However I hear a lot of people bashing Cover when they should'nt. Cover is an useful tool if the PLD uses it, and uses it corectly, at the right time. If I ever heared a PLD say that Cover is an useless abbility, I would have left that PT the moment I heared it, cus I can't tell you how meny time's its saved mine (main WHM) or the BLM's ***, and if a PLD cant see the use of Cover, then that PLD does not know how to use his job properly.
what are the conditions?

lots of posts here.

ok there are 2 conditions here im not sure of for the latent
obviously cover must be active, so here are my questions

1: do you need to be in front of the person your covering for the latent

and 2: does the other person need to have hate for the latent

#1 doesnt bother me too much cause i usually have someone behind me. if you dont need the #2 condition to be met, this sword would be excellent for vorpal blade. +20 ACC means i can take out some acc and add more str to my vorpals.

Oh! So they did accept it. ^^ That's me, Eufrasi of Kujata server. I must say that this sword was worth the 150k I payed for it, even if I only used it for a single level before I upgraded to an Espadon.

Kinda annoying Save the Queen is 200k on AH, while Enhancing Sword is 9 million...
Considering both are 40/240 with a latent active during a buff...

this swords rly that great at all 20+ acc would be great but latent effects dont rly work when u want them and a good pld doesnt need cover+1 u should be able to keep hate no matter what
# Sep 19 2006 at 6:52 PM Rating: Decent
Also fyi (just in case nobody said this) this item's latent effect activates when you use cover. A very fitting name to the latent effect's trigger. Although a more accurate name would b "Save the Black/White mage" or somethin along those lines lol.

No offense, but you have obviously never played a tank job, or if you have, have been unfortunate to do so with very underpar DD's.

Hate managment is the entire PT's responsibility, and noone can keep hate if someone decides that they absolutely want it right then.

Please do yourself a favor, and read some of the posts on Hate control, before making broad (and incorrect) statements on a public forum.

Does anyone know what the duration increase is for cover? I figure if anything you could Dual Wield 2 of these subbing Ninja during an HNM fight when you aren't the main tank. Put up your shadows then run in and cover occasionally to give the main tank a breather. Once your shadows run out or cover duration is over, move out of the way again.

And I'll say it again, the vast majority of the community firmly believes that +20 Accuracy is only in effect when Cover is active. They're probably correct :/

It is a long sword, and it does improve Acc, by a good noticeable amount. It certainly is not a peice of crap, it has its uses just like any other weapon... as they say, one mans junk is another mans treasure. I am a 75 pld and I've used this sword from 65, alternating with Durandal when I need the def boost.

This sword sucks, it doesn't provide any use for pld, it could work if you macros to equip it when cover is active, but kind of worthless in my opinion.

I disagree, I think that although the sword is only good when covor is active, it's a great sword to use in EXPing while switching Company Sword in for the times you are not planning on using covor, or the times you don't.

let's see... Beatrix had this sword in FFIX and Quitis in FFVIII had a whip named Save the Queen. I also think that you can make this sword in FFX... but whatever, this is a great sword :)

how is this really expensive!? lol its like somewhere around 150-250k on siren... not really very expensive...
# Feb 12 2005 at 12:26 PM Rating: Decent
Carbuncle PLDs are Gluttony happy until they can equip the Durandal which i think is around 3-5million (not too sure)... I got my Save the Queen for 70k :/

Too bad duel wielding is basicly imposible to do under a regualr party setup/ex party.

It would be like! 40 ACC and +2 Cover..

Solowing PLD/NIN with these 2x would be bad too.... [Thas too bad]

NOw wouldn't you do a PLD/NIN with this just like you said, but then add + enmity gear so you get hate more. YOu would hit harder getting for hate that way and then there are the + enmity gera you could have as well. I would like to see PLD without the WAR sub more often, but then again you could just not be tank. . .

apperantly, a friend of mine went to an exp party as pld53/whm26 (forgot to change sub) and was able to control hate without difficulty, and was actually complimented on his tanking by other party members.

not that most people would ever try that, just saying that it's possible to NOT sub warrior and do well. therefore, the possible uses of this weapon increases, yes?

Cover enhanced comes in handy with high damage people in party. RNGs will love this sword !
Latent trigger
# Nov 01 2004 at 10:44 AM Rating: Default
From my experience, the latent trigger is indeed yellow hp. I came to this conclusion by comparing hit rates with Gluttony Sword, Espadon and Save the Queen. I kept a "steep" DEX penalty on, so that the effect of Accuracy+20 would be more noticeable. Simply put, staying around yellow HP and fighting VT->IT mobs, the Save the Queen had a higher hit rate by about 15% over the course of an hour vs. an hour each for the other two swords. Cover was never used.

The Save the Queen's hit rate should be higher than Gluttony, because of the DEX penalty (albeit only DEX-1). However, the Espadon and Save the Queen both have no DEX penalty. And the hit rate for the Save the Queen was still better.

I pack the Save the Queen with me myself and am grateful that I bought it cheap from a PLD that thought it was a piece of crap.

it is triggered for the duration of cover
# Sep 17 2004 at 11:45 PM Rating: Decent
how much that Sword ???
What's the hype about?
# Aug 03 2004 at 9:41 AM Rating: Decent
I prefer Gluttony anyday over Save the Queen, latent effect is close if not already worthless, especially for a PLD that has to have HP up in case of an special attack that might kill when life is on yellow.

Welcome to equipment swap macros =P. Swap in this sword for when you have to cover otherwise use your regular sword.
RE: What's the hype about?
# Apr 04 2005 at 6:10 PM Rating: Decent
an equipment swap macro might not be a good idea, unless you dont mind losing all your tp.

Yeah this sword is my dream sword, its worth 500k in Midgardsormr in Jeuno. This Sword is off of, FF9 (Beatrix) FF8 (Qustis) FFT (Med, and her family carry it)
