I use this belt for my Hume PLD. Alot of people say it is a poor choice for the lowered INT, which they believe effects my 'Flash'. I have not seen any evidence to support this.

My 'Flash' still draws alot of agro, and it still only lasts a few moments. As a paladin, I am concerned mostly with taking hits and keeping hate(obviously). So i figured a DEF, HP, and DEX belt would be a wise choice. (the STR never hurts either ^.~)

But for those PLD's who lust after VIT, stick with a Warrior's Belt +1.
This isnt much of a DRK belt, considering the -5 INT, unless you are a DRK who doesn't use magic (o.O)
The belt i reccomend for most melee jobs is the Life Belt though. +10 ACC = More Hits. More Hits = More DMG&TP. More DMG&TP = One Dead Monster.

The same can be said for PLD too, More Accuracy = More Hate. However, I have never had a problem holding agro. Just keep vokin, flashin, and curin and you shouldnt have a problem.

Sorry for my long and rambling post, and sorry for sounding like Captain Obvious. Just thought i would put my perspective on this fine piece of equipment on here ^_^

Oh and it is 100k+ on Cerberus Sever

I would suggest you dont worry about the -INT for flash reasons. Flash is a White magic skill, and is affected by MND, not INT.

The -INT will slightly up the damage you recieve from black magic attacks and lower your resistance to black magic enfeebs. The effect of this will be VERY small however. Like 5 damage or so...

Personally, I'm not really convinced that INT has anything to do with the effectiveness of Flash. It always seems to hit/stick with the same degree of effectiveness, with or without this belt equipped.

That being said, I *have* seen mobs resist Flash ( Wandering Ghost NM for MNK AF1, for example ). The blindness effect did not stick...however, it did draw the normal amount of hate. I flashed three times during the fight, and he resisted it every time.

Anyway, I have one of these, a Warrior's Belt +1, and a Life Belt, and I switch between them whenever the situation calls for it. I use the Ocean Belt for solo'ing mostly, farming and such. The Ocean Belt sells for between 140-200k on Sylph as of September '05.
Next belt?

Hey Prod. See you all the time on Diabolos. I am still using this belt and have since lvl 50. I really don't know what my next belt will be. I am lvl 63 now. Any suggestions?
Cool item

I have it equipped on my Paladin at the moment. Good item for SAMs or Ninjas who dont need INT. I bought it back in the day for 30K. I have now seen it go for 50K-80K!!!!

Not a bad belt. Like most items the price has probably stabilized since the last update so you could hold off on gettin this without worrying about price hikes.
