Its a very inexpensive piece of armor (20k or so on siren) which gives moderately useful stats. Most people can afford better now, but if you want a cheap piece to use when soloing lesser colibri, its not bad

call me a noob, but i dont see any point in this lil piece of equip



Seriously though, this is a nice piece for RDM when they melee at 74+ My friend Thantos also wears one of these when he tanks as War/Nin. Basically, it's a piece that you would wear to have some offense, while still keeping defense. I'll probably get one eventually as well ^^b

AHHH its Rell! What's up man, long time no see.

About the Vest... takes 3x Narasimha's Hides to make the leather... have fun camping the thing for them >< <Labyrinth of Onzozo> = the suck.

BRD/NIN for the win!

I bought it mainly for the +accuracy for skillups. Turns out that for Bard, it's pretty much the best melee armor our there for ease of getting it and reasonable price. I solo skill up with weapons quite a bit, and this comes in VERY handy both for the +evasion and +VIT.

call me a noob, but i dont see any point in this lil piece of equip, besides the accuracy for dragoon it doesnt come close to haub for melee that would seek to use it. (war sam thf drk.. agian excluding drg)the only reason it would go for so high is the materials taken to make it, however i may stand corrected and if i'm wrong please feel free to correct me im just saying it looks pretty sloppy for the cost of it (NQ and HQ on unicorn >.<)

For dragoon the Assault Jerkin is really a better piece of armor for xp parties than this. I use this vest for soloing. It is among the best soloing body armor dragoon has access to.

i know the HQ post up top is months old just wanted to clarrify, the HQ wouldnt be 800-1m it would be more along the lines of 4m+ because the cap of this synth is 99 and is very hard to HQ, the stats are amazing and i, being a leathercrafter and knowing my server (lakshmi) have seen -one- ever made and sold and esp now with inflation, the HQ vishnu's vest would probaly sell for 6m on my server.. ppl are crazy.

Narashima, a giant lion-man, is the fourth incarnation of Vishnu. It was said that king Hiranyakashipu, Hiranyaksha's elder brother, obtained a boon by Brahma: to not die either by man or beast, by day or by night, indoors or outdoors, on earth or in the sky. The asura, being aware of own immortality, conquerd heaven and earth, and there were no limits to Hiranyakashipu's impudence; he subjected his son Prahlada, Vishnu's fervent worshipper, to a long and cruel persecution. At last one day, when the asura was going to slay Prahlada, Vishnu emerged from a pillar in the form of Narashima (man-lion) to protect his devotee. When Narashima (neither man nor beast) seized the asura, it was the twlight (neither day nor night), he carried the him under the arch of the doorway (neither indoors nor outdoors), where he threw the asura on his thighs (neither on earth nor in the sky), and killed him with his claws.

How much does this cost in the AH?
# Jun 02 2004 at 5:11 PM Rating: Decent
I thought that was a bit. Fishy


#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 27 2004 at 3:48 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Wait a minute...you can make this at lvl 0 leather? or is that a mistake?

Remember, that number represents the skill cap, or what level you stop gaining expierence by making the item. So either they don't know when you stop gaining expierence, or you flat out don't gain expierence from making this item.
RE: Hmmm..

I'd hazard a guess that since one of the items it's crafted from caps at 94, this can probably take your skill up to 99.

No, the 0 means they don't know what level you need.
