Not really.
the Enmity, stat/skill boosts, and +HP blow this armor out of the water.

That and to activate the latent requires u be low on HP. Who in the right mind keeps their tank below 1/2 HP or so?

I've used and thoroughly tested the carapace set:

Gloves: 75%hp or less
Helm: 50%hp or less
Body: less than 25%hp

The stats on carapace armor are nice, but whoa... when you wear this, you really look like a crustacean. >_> it's got spikey things on it just like what you see on crab shells (which makes sense since that's what it's made from). See carapace breastplate listing for a pic.

I've been wearing the carapace helm and body for a long while now when soloing with my DRG, and I just now noticed in a skillup with my friend that the HELM activates around half (orange) HP.. but the body doesn't? I assume the body activates upon red HP, but the helm's latent definitely seems triggered when you hit orange HP. Odd.

Edit: I think it's really somewhere around 40-45%.. But close enough to half.

Hello, I bought this with the intention of macroing it in when I have yellow hp for the +attk on my WAR and I'm sorry to say that being in the yellow doesn't raise my attack it all when checking my equipment page. Does anyone out there no what the REAL trigger is? thank you. I'm a 61WAR on Phoenix... just noticed how out of date sig is; ;

Just a note for those on Shiva I am currently making this set of armor. If you would like one crafted let me know. As I am low on gil and needing skill right now, I will do this if you will provide the materials and all I ask as payment is 6k or 2 HQ crab shells.

Hey, it has come to my attention that i have been missing people who need things crafted...If you'd like just click on my name to the left and send me a PM this way I can work out a time to meet you online. Hope to see you online!

Its not expensive on Pandy at all. Once I reach the level requirment. I'm going to carry this with me for those times my HP does drop into the yellow. Then set a macro to change equipment. Sorta like a Transformation from Dragon Ball Z! >=D

I just bought this and the Scorpion Helm from a high level crafter (wont use his name) for 8k each. I didn't know if it was a good deal or not but seeing as the Scorpion adds Refresh I said what the heck. I'll see how well they work on my RDM.

Just to confirm, the latent effect is triggered by low HP, not rain or subjob or any other silly trigger.
# Oct 20 2004 at 11:34 PM Rating: Decent
maybe... if its raining or wet u get the effect?

it seems pretty weird... i'd like to know about it myself

low hp, so if you have a full set and are in yello-red you will have nearly x2 def ^^ and a reasonable amount of extra attack, nice for farming.

anyone know what activates the latent effect on this item?
# Jul 31 2004 at 1:54 PM Rating: Decent
Someone make this more clear please???

it says 12 def...

the +1 version gives 24def + latent effect...

So what is the correct stats??

If its only +12 def, then thats pretty low
Halfway there
# Mar 24 2004 at 12:35 AM Rating: Default
Still says DEF 12 right now. Latent Effect Defense 23 is correct though.
Update Please
# Feb 12 2004 at 3:14 PM Rating: Decent
The graphic shows the helm having defense 23 and required level 61. This should be updated.
