I'm sorry, but if this is all you can afford, a 5k earring, thats just...sad. I Managed(as a poor blackmage) to camp up a storm to get my TWO wisdom rings (300k each) and one cunning earring(130k) and a solid wand. If your so bored/cruddy to get a better earring, why bother getting that nice new armor, or that nice new spell.

Please, +5mp +5hp is...nothing. What can you do with this? Survive poison another tick? Cast blind or poison on someone else? Isn't poisona 6 mp? This is just...sad, get +evasion if you can't think of a good earring.

Correct me if im wrong, but i belive this has something to do with the Enhanceing Sword, just a though you know?

There is a post down below saying something about a Hidden Effect, Not sure if I can prove that, but my Enspells seemed to last a tiny bit longer. I could very well be crazy though.

This is the best earring for me as a level 40 BRD/WHM, aside from the Earrings that increase the string/singing/wind skill, but those are too expensive (especially wind).

i have to say most whms have this earring cus they just spent an enormious amount of money on erase or some other spell.So they get what they can afford for equipment so they can keep lvling! I should know i just spent 500k on erase!

Just did my first successful BCNM40 last night, and this earring dropped. I thought to myself, "Well, that's not worth much." Warped back to Jeuno, and the thing is selling for 10-12k! I just don't understand.

So I thought, "Perhaps this is used in some ultra-nifty crafting." And, to investigate, I sent some /tells to recent buyers. Everyone's sticking them in their ears!

Absolutely fascinating phenomenon. I can't sell it yet because my AH is full (and selling Phalanx is slightly more important), so I guess I'll equip it. But then I'm getting rid of it, 'cause I don't see the point.

wtf are u talkin about why would 12k for this be alot are you one of those noobs who gos around with half there spells and a lvl 15 equip? if i came back and saw it goin for 300k then id wonder but 10-12k thats just pathetic id at least expect this thing to go for 50k bein its only second to geist and morions earing witch on most secers are 150-600k for those ones
could it be
# Mar 18 2005 at 11:43 AM Rating: Default
could it be that maybe the whm's who wear these don't have enough money for something better. Maybe they spent all their money on other gear. Anyway as long as the whm can do his job what does it matter.

Morion Earrings do 4 mp, 1 int. That's very good a WHM, BLM, or RDM. However, for your typical BRD/WHM this earring is very nice. The Emnity -1 from the Healer's Earring is all that useful since BRDs don't get much aggro. Combine it with a Black Earring (or Black Earring +1) and you've got yourself 9-10 more mp. Very nice to use until the Melody Earrings.

I use this earring on my WHM because I would rather have MP+5 instead of MP+4 INT+1 from Morion earring, why would WHM need INT+1 anyways? I have 2 Morion earring for my BLM, I just use this one on WHM because I think its better if you need MP.

I would imagine that a lot of people have this earring due to the fact that it is MUCH cheaper than the Morion earring. Just a guess though.
the rare/ex question

now, I was under the impression that if something was rare, you could have more than one. but if something was rare/ex then you could only have one.

Another thing, I spend ALOT of money on my gear, and I wear one of these earrings, this is in response to the dude who says only gimped out mages wear it.
of course, if I had a high lvl blm in my LS who wore this earring i'd think he was gimped out too bc there is better gear for higher lvls.

Rare means you can only have one. Ex means you can't sell it on the AH or trade it to other players.

I'd be willing to say about 50% or a little less, of the times ive done BCNM40 it seems to drop about every other time.

There HAS to be a hidden attribute to this earring. Today on a Davoi coffer key hunt, I had equipped this earring because it was just sitting my inventory from BCNM40. I noticed that when I invis'd, it would last DRASTICALLY longer with it equipped then without. And that isn't coincidence... it would constantly be longer with the earring equipped than without.

I assume the earring has as hidden Enhancing Magic +15 effect on it? I don't know, must be.

is it just me?
# Aug 16 2004 at 11:45 PM Rating: Decent
This seems like the quintessential "crappy mage" ring. Every high-level gimp mage I see wears this. There's a BLM66 in my LS that no one likes but we don't feel like kicking, has no dark staff, has Erase but not Drain or Aspir, has mostly +mp gear, hardly any INT, that wears this. I don't understand why he doesn't just play WHM or something.

You can only equip one of the level 30 earing depending on your sub job.

It is an alternative to a morion earing for a taru RDM mage. A morion+1 is better buts its very expensive.

A better alternative for a high level BLM or RDM is the moldavite earing:


The problem is its ex/rare. You are either level 70 and get it solo or you need a small party to get it.

why why why?
i've seen 75% of mages in my LS wearing this thing.
i don't get it. is there some kind of hidden effect? for nearly all mage jobs, the lvl 30 latent effect earring is much better IMHO.
-1 enmity? yes, please.
+1 mp regen while healing? Sure!
+5 elemental attack? Alright!
+30 mp? Woohaa!
heck, even +4 agi for those whm/nins is better ^^

bah, ranting from a thf/war >.>

they drop like candy from bcnm40's.
and they only AH for ~5k.

sure, a moldy is great... if you can get the claim AND the drop.
sure, a moron is great... if you have the money (and if you can find the damn things anymore).
sure, a wizard is great... if you have the money, and find one for sale.

i noticed a trend along time ago about the earrings, either they suck and are dirt cheap, or are really great and really expensive.

the magician's earring, which has the latent +30mp bonus, depends on the sub. for the latent to kick in, apparently you need smn subbed...otherwise nada

I wondered the very same thing. I'll "examine" some level 70+ mage and there it is. It perplexes me that someone at that level couldn't find anything else to put in that slot that had way better stats, unless, as you suggested, there's something more interesting about the earring that's not evident in the posted stats, which are modest, at best.
how can ya get it?

Anything "Rare" means you can only have one in your possession at a time, including Inventory, Mog Safe and Storage space.
