I've had my cluster for ages! If there is anyone out there on Cerberus that is going to be getting this or needs it please tell me! I have about 6-10 people that I could get to go if need be.

took a whopping 23 hours to get this hat. LS did it with like 10 people wanting one. only reason i got it is cuase someone gave up their roll and let me spawn it.

I don't see why you guys care about looks in this game over funtion. Who cares if you look retarded while using this hat acc/r.acc/eva is good for any dd/tank job -pld.
I got it yummy!!!!

I got this beauty :D IS the Best hat for An DRk!
or DRG or RNG or Any job that need Accuracy /cheer <(^^<)
best hat?
# May 20 2006 at 7:40 PM Rating: Decent
For a lvl 75 drg would this be considered the best hat? or is the wrym armet and/or wyvern helm/+1 better? I really think this hat look ugly and if anyone knows of any other hat plz tell

Depends on the set. If your wearing a Full Acc+ Set, then yes, this is the best hat.

If your going for Str+, then Wyvern Helm+1 is best (although, I'd prefer Wyrm Armet).

If your going for a Acc+Haste set, then you can pick between the Wahalra Turban and Homam Hat thing.

And of course, you can always mix and match, but yes, this is a stellar piece of equip for Drgs.

I managed to farm all the eyes, but not the Wooden one from Den of Rancor (bought it, luckily), had synth the cluster by myself lvl 84+ Alchemy, and was nervous to synth it as i heard that if you failed YOU WILL LOSE EVERYTHING, but oh well i need the hat badly for my Nin, so i ran to the AH and bought Light Crystal, i had fiend blood already in my MH. Asked a friend to say a prayer for me ( ^^ ), start synth...... keeping my fingers crossed and wow, SUCCESS!!! Now, im waiting for someone to shout O-hat Run in Ramuh server. So please if you're one of those who also wants this hat, please let me know. Oh by the way, i will not charge you to synth the Cluster, not much ^^.

I just got to say, THIS HAT ROCKS. Now i just got to get to level 70 to equip...lol.
Way to go SE...

This has to be the worst idea SE had when they made this game. Make an item with godly statistics look worse than anything else in the game so people have to run around Jeuno looking at everyone wearing this stupid thing.

/clap -.-

Well, I'm not going to disagree with you on that one. It could look a lot cooler I suppose, however, things to remember, it's wearable by ALL classes. So you need something that doesn't look like it belongs to one class over the other. It's fairly neutral in that respect.

I've also had the eye cluster in my posession for SO long (not wanting to risk losing it in a crummy pick up group) that I've actually come to associate it's aesthetic with the power that it grants. So whenever I see a high level (particularily DRKs for some reason...Must be the dark coloured Haub.) I'm awstruck. But yeah...would be neat if there were...some other design. or even if you could select from a list of a dozzen models or something. oh well. Best well rounded hat in the game none the less.

How about a usefull comment. @_@ Can anyone direct me to an Ohat guide? As in hey, this is where this mob spawns that drops this eye and these are the tactics you should use on the NM.

I finally got this hat. I went to a few ohat runs but never got around to doing mine. So I decided to make my own run.

I went second, and they CFH'd on my cluster. >< The guy who did gave me his cluster so I was lucky enough to get it.

Also if you're organizing the runs, it's a good idea not to talk anymore than 5 or 6 people who need hats. Anymore than that, and it's too much.

one, who gives a flaming f*&k what this hat looks like, if you could buy it it would be 30mil by now. DID YOU LOOK AT THE STATS! Acc+10 alone is awesome, almost essential for melee. Its like a peacock charm and emperor's hairpin rolled into one hat. PS i think this hat looks badass paired with a LOT of 70+ gear.

well first off, the "af2" or relic head piece isnt exactly a walk in the park to get, theres such a slim chance of winning the lot for the item if one even drops, in some cases relic equipment isnt so hot to begin with, i would gladly wear the O Hat over my Abyss burgeonet, with the 10 ACC on it i could dump my snipers for 2 flames rings

and second, you dont know what youre talking about "it doesent look good on a sam, drk, drg, war anyways"... pfft.. drk and war look awesome with the thick set and the O Hat
RE: who cares

Haha whatever i like to call this the "***** hat" its worse than whm af hat (a.k.a the "condom hat") haha..... but the stats are still good for it being such pain to get
RE: who cares
# Dec 07 2005 at 11:59 AM Rating: Excellent
I disagree.

Coming from a whm... the condom hat is much uglier. MUCH uglier.

Ever seen the SMN AF piece?

Of course not and there is an extremely good reason why you don't.

It turns any SMN into a d i c k h e a d, literally.

I was just reading, and i thought id comment on one thing.

AF2 head pieces for most melee jobs blow huge nuts.

Does anyone know of an LS or people that do runs on CaitSith? I'll be hitting 69 tonight and want to get it soon, I already got the cluster. Theres very few higher lvls in my LS and I don't have any "connection". ;/

Well my group spent about 10 hours there last night. We had to get like 14 hats. We had 2 whipes out of the 10 we had. On our second whipe we decided to call it quits, and I was next in line lol. Oh well, always another day to go get it I suppose. Fight wasn't bad we just had to stun and watch for adds. all I did was boost and Chi Blast.
Wait a second...
