For those of you who are bothered by the fact that this can only be equipped by whm - think about it. 50 defense is higher than ANY jobs body equipment for nearly 20 levels. If tanking jobs could wear this, it would unbalance the game horribly. It's like saying "I wish my WHM could equip greatswords..."

It's perfect for solo work, the best solo body equipment a whm will get. And arguably, it's better than the Bishop's Robe. 2 mind? Useful, but it depends on the situation. If I have a Paladin tank, I will wear my Bishop's Robe with no fears of taking any damage. With some Ninja tanks, I may not feel as comfortable, and choose to have some extra defense. It's made differences for me, this is for sure.

The same applies to hammers. You don't get as much boost as you do from Wands, but if you need to attack for whatever reason (solo, mainly), then it's nice to have one ready.

By no means is it any ultimate equipment for a whm, but it's great to have on standby in case you need it.

Bloody expensive though. Seen it at 2 million on Asura ;_;

Not to over lok the fact that it looks great. As a whm im so tired of wearing tunic.
never find

i'm never going to find this at ah i've decided
I want this....
# Jul 01 2005 at 7:53 AM Rating: Decent
Sure would like to have this..
but since it can only be crafted as an HQ.. and I can't craft... I'm dependant on the AH.. and it's not sold there very often..

sidenote: I've noticed alot more people shouting their sales in Jeuno as opposed to posting in the AH. If this trend continues, it's going to be difficult to just "run" to jeuno and pick up a much needed item or piece of equipment.
I don't know many people that just sit in Jeuno to wait for someone to "/sh" that they're selling their item..

This armor is for letting you fight monsters easier so your not such a punk against easy prey:p with this armor you can lv up your combat skills on too easy's until your up to par with the easy prey again. then you can keep it up until your able to take on decents like you could back in the beginning, this is my theory at least:p essentially its a solo piece of equipment but the experienced player will learn to incorporate it into their pt play as well.

bloody friggin hell! these things somehow jumped from 400k to 1 mil on gilgamesh! ><
50 def is GODLY considering youre a mage that has damn near no def as it is! and you look at the armor in its lv catagory and a little further on, and its still got them beat as far as def! and you dont have to wear the thing all the time.. you can switch it out with stat raising gear until, say, you attract a lot of hate, or youre running for your life. youll be glad you have that def. its really nice for PL'ing too.
i just wish the price hadnt climbed to an outrageous amount! GRRRR!!!!
bishop's robe

Bishop's Robe is so much better then this. WHMs need +MND. If you want to solo then this Divine Breastplate is better.

DEF for the WHM

A lot of people say this is useless to a WHM because it only adds to defense. Look at the other body pieces though. +1 MND here and there. Maybe +8 MP. An elemental resistance. Nothing major, really.

Since level 30, I've had my Seer's Tunic, of course. When I hit 40, I got my Holy Breastplate, and quickly replaced it with a Divine Breastplate, which I got for about 400K on Kujata.

I wear my Seer's Tunic for resting, and after I've used the 8 MP that it gives me, I switch to my breastplate. Of course, I try not to get too much hate, but when I'm forced to spam cures, it's really nice for reducing the damage I take.

Also great for soloing. Almost essential, I'd say. WHM's aren't really geared towards soloing, if you hadn't realized. Our damage spells are a waste of MP most of the time, and our melee isn't the greatest. A breastplate will help us last a lot longer and conserve a lot of MP otherwise used for healing.

In my opinion, this breastplate is totally worth the 400K I spent on it, and every WHM should at least get the Holy Breastplate.

If you got it for 40K, I think you're talking about the Holy Breastplate, bud. ;)
yes whm.......
# Dec 22 2004 at 1:42 AM Rating: Decent
There are many people that have landblasted this and the holy breastplate for being usless to WHM. I don't agree. This armor, while adding no enhansments to any thing other than def, provide where we whm suffer the most. It is sad when a whm can survive a thunder IV due to the magic def bonus but is killed by a random ws. This would also help with soloing and transit. It is sad that easy prey offten leads to a long hard battle with the chanceof needing a 2-hour. While i will not refute the advantages of a robe or cloak this armor is not useless compaired to them. And to the PLD's out there......... we love the work you guys and the work you do but your def is high engough as it is =P......

the reason Whms get this, is because its something cool for them to have
# Sep 29 2004 at 5:07 AM Rating: Decent
i think it stupid to sell this armor at million+ the def is good but no stats plus holy breastplate sell at 40k on shiva server why not sell at 300k max! Just look at the sells history only 5 every sold over a year ago and I seen at less 5 trys to sell it. I try buying it at 700k and still no go it not worth that much! So to the people out there trying to sell them on shiva LOWER THE PRICE and you might make some good gil!

It really is no fair
# Sep 12 2004 at 3:39 PM Rating: Decent
Its absolutely unfathomable to me that a WHM who never tanks, gets this armor. If anything this should be WHM and PLD only. Why is it that a WHM gets armor at level 40, that has better Defense than any Plate until 70....

Can someone explain this to me? Any good tank won't let the WHM get hit more than once and a good WHM would have blink, stoneskin and re-raise up. As a WHM and a BLM I think its ludicrous that a PLD can't use this... A WHM has alot of perks we really don't need armor that has an obscene def, especially at this level.

ok frist off this armor is one(other then the holy/divine sheild) thing whm's have that is very very good and is about the only thing also, most others armor weps(other then the hammers)and spells can be used by red mages as far as spells go. wep's your looking at most other jobs like dragoon and monk red mage pld. Next there is the fact that whm will get hit in parties and 99.9% of the time the party will pull with out letting the time needed to cast stoneskin blink and reraise, for being in a mad rush for exp and not thing of if something gos wrong. There is no need for other jobs to being useing whm armor, if other jobs could use the divine sheild they would when there is no need for it, if any thing SE should redues the jobs that can use other job's armor. What about that one scythe that balck mage's can use? I don't try to cut down on that.

Everyone PLD wishes they could use this and I can see why. However it is really strange to me that so few people can grasp the concept that some armor is made to further specialize in a job's strengths and some is designed to reinforce it's weaknesses.

The armor has such ridiculous DEF because it is designed to allow a WHM to have a reasonable amount of DEF even though the rest of his/her armor is not super impressive in DEF.

Besides- SE has designed a good, balanced game... if PLDs could equip armor with lvl 70 equivalent DEF at lvl 40 then SE would just raise mobs ATT proportionally.

PS- Maybe if PLDs would repent of their greed and envy over this Breastplate issue they'd be pure hearted enough to wear this.

actually BCNMs can't drop that, the only way to get it is to craft it.

I think he/she means that it is handy to keep around for BCNMs and level-capped areas.

So when wearing this does it look any different from the holy breastplate?

Looks the same as the holy breastplate.
Give me this armor now
# Feb 20 2004 at 7:13 PM Rating: Default
Good question... Im interested
dropped by...
# Feb 20 2004 at 12:47 PM Rating: Default
you can totally get it from an uber-moogle in Dynamis. You can only fight him if you sneak attack him to start the battle, so make sure you have a THF with you. He drops it 17.284% of the time, so it might take you a while to get it...

trust me, i know cuz my best friend's older brother's uncle's trippy dog did it the other night.

People get so repetative So for a last time.

This item is crafted. It is HQ of holy Breastplate

It can be Purchased at an auction house. If you have the money VERY ExPENSIVE on some servers.

Or you can find a crafter and Pay an arm and a leg to have them make you one. This can be doable sometimes as they typicaly will cut you a deal if you farm some of the harder to get material.

More resently you might consider checking the bazzars in juno. Near the auction houses. Lots of players are leaving mules with High Quality Crafted goods like this for sale there as it saves them the auction fees
