true, nice stats... but god it's ugly @[email protected]
# Nov 19 2006 at 8:59 AM Rating: Good
YOUR RIGHT!!! We should ignore It's VIT+15 and HP+50 cause It looks so ugly and not that a MNK or SAM (and yes PLD needs this but can't have it XP) would need it...BUT you shouldn't have this cause its ugly right???? and it is a good god piece...but its ugly so i shouldn't get it thanks for your help bye!

Shura Kabuto 5STR 5ACC
or this? VIT15 HP+50

anyone test this w/ asuran fists etc
does it effect it greatly?
# Aug 26 2006 at 10:41 PM Rating: Decent
yeah, his would modify better w/ asuran fists w/ +15 Vit

(assuming you're 8/8 hits)

I sometimes use this fooling around when soloing . It sure does help if /NIN subbed and shadows drop while soloing or geting aggro . I wouldn't recommend using this in an exp PT or fighting HNMs , but as a soloing piece , its rocks .

IMO PLD should be able to wear this . I can see some instances when fighting certain sky NMs and HNMs where the +15 Vit could make a difference over koenig .

I don't think allowing PLDs to wear this would be too smart from the stand point that it would make the Koenig head piece useless. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure PLDs everywhere are drooling over this, but I think that's ur reason as to why they cannont. They have a dedicated set for VIT boost. Probably used for, as mentioned, farming, NINs tanking for that odd time they're caught with their shadows (pants) down, this will provide a bit of an HP sink and soften the blow a little until they can get back on their feet. Also good for WARs for macroing in for Steel Cyclone as it can be enhanced by VIT.

So then why is Koenig War/Pld.....This should be War/Pld as well...and your forgeting the +chr on Koenig, so yes in some cases this would be better but in some Koenig would be better.
RE: RNG and Kabuto
# Jan 05 2007 at 8:21 PM Rating: Decent
cause koenig has -STR
hey lvl 75 again
# Oct 25 2005 at 11:09 AM Rating: Default
Now my war is 75 (my 2nd job as 75), I'm looking for a good linkshell to do those "gods" fights and get gears to my poor war. ^^

Can you believe? Still nobody can help me to get Decimation! (NM fight)

about how much HP this adds?
i know that it's 50 +15vit which adds some HP as well... how much?
# Nov 19 2006 at 6:21 PM Rating: Decent
how retarded can one be? it says hp+50 so that means you get 50 hp and thats it

Umm... VIT doesn't add HP. Only HP adds HP. XD VIT affects defense.
# Mar 17 2005 at 9:24 PM Rating: Decent
the last war gaxe WS has to due with srt and vit in its damage multipliers if im not wrong so thisll boost it quites a bit :)
+10 now?
# Feb 26 2005 at 7:43 PM Rating: Decent
i heard that w/ the new patch genbu's kabuto now has +10 vit! is this true? i haven't seen anyone w/ the kabuto since the patch so i can't confirm it myself, can someone else confirm it?
RE: +10 now?
# Mar 05 2005 at 8:47 AM Rating: Decent
yes, this still has 15 VIT, saw it yesterday on a very hot SAM...
# Jan 22 2005 at 10:17 AM Rating: Good
ppl always talk about how useful this is for monks/wars as it pertains to tanking, and yes, it obviously does. it is a crime that plds cant equip this.
on a side note, rng can equip all god drops, and anyone on valefor who has ever watched sakura fight behemoth knows that brian(rng) tanks better than william(pld) lol.

You want even more Irony....The god that drops this is himself a PLD. Why is he carrying around something that he can't equip?
RE: tanks
# Feb 07 2005 at 12:24 PM Rating: Decent
pld cant equip because it'd make them too godly, and for a note
koeing(cursed) is better for pld than this due to +chr

Not only can PLD's not equip it, but BRDs can. That, right there, is irony.

# Jul 13 2006 at 12:41 AM Rating: Decent
please learn the meaning of irony.

It is when the meaning is different to the word.

"the old me, which was ironically, the young me."

And a MNK can? wtf?

15 vit for monk = ~30hp more when they use Chakra

More importantly, many Monk weaponskills (and WAR) have VIT modifiers. Better Chakra is great, but the fact that it will boost WS damage is the real reason a monk would want this.
# Jan 17 2005 at 6:44 PM Rating: Good
35 def...... second best in the gaem, second only to koenig

If I ever get to 75, I'd much rater have this over the melee crown, a MNK's "true" Relic Gear as far as I know. And for the reason stated...more VIT = more Chakra. And there's more defense. And I assume HP gain MIGHT be slightly more with 5%, but I'm not sure. STR of 5 isnt that big of a deal so late in the game...and Subtle Blow is pretty good, but not worth NOT being able to wear a turtle shell on my head ^^

Good for that chakra affect !!!!! helps it heal more!!!

Every 2 vitality adds to defense, but vitality and defense have different purposes. Read about it here: http://ffxi.crgaming.com/interviews/viewinterview.asp?Id=209

Well I'm aware it's insanely good but doesn't 15 Vit translate to only about 7-8 def?

# Mar 22 2004 at 12:11 AM Rating: Decent
but it's level 75 lol...your tank won't be able to wear it for a while if you're still not at AF level yet...but it's nice to see the VIT and HP boost whoa...and that NM...

If you're a paladin you wont even be able to wear this.

At least Nins, War, And Monk Could. Which could be potential tanks
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 15 2004 at 1:22 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Wouldn't a paladin subbing one of those still be able to equip it? Looks like something good to me.

no, you can't equip gear if your main job cannot.
RE: vit
# Feb 05 2005 at 6:56 PM Rating: Default
Every 2 VIT is equal to 1 def AND 1 less damage taken. I generally consider VIT to be like Def+1. Strength is the same thing, except every 2 is 1 atk and 1 more damage dealt.
