Becuse there are a number of blu spells that use ranged acc to hit, ie. feather storm.

any rng can put this to good use they can use it to kite just equip the egg throw up unlimited shot and sharpshot throw it then start running additional effect provoke and the 99 base dmg should help you keep hate while your kiting it
# Jan 24 2007 at 11:44 AM Rating: Decent
its very easy to break 99 dmg with bow+arrow or gun+bullet.

bow dmg + ammo dmg = shot dmg.
are you all stupid?
# Oct 24 2006 at 6:24 PM Rating: Decent
this is swap gear for RNG. Remove all ur ranged acc and add in all the ranged attack you can find for unlimited shot

Yes this is great for BST BRD and PLD. It works real well for BST b/c of the +3 CHR in the ammo slot which DOES improve killer effects, hence why it would be good for PLD as well. As far as DRG go, I know nothing about them so I cant comment.

Its funny how people keep making note of this Items additional "Provoke" Effect. This Item currently costs over 750k just to get the items to make one ( Kujata- Oct 12 2006) If someone were to bet on using this for that option...Wow, big spender. Now for a no-nonsense based deduction of its use:

The Ranged Acc 99... In light of long had rumors regarding DRG's "Jump" acc being Agi/Ranged Accuracy controlled, i had always made an effort of testing what i could. I tried many +Agi Items. For DRG, there are not many items that give +Ranged Acc ( snipers, Orichalum (sp) Lance,Optical Hat etc etc) so it was always rather hard to test WITH extra RAcc. So..Sushi vs meat was often an aid. With Meat ( before ToAU i used Meat Chiefs, Hedghog pies, with ToAU, Sis Kebabi) my Jumps would often miss. I would take off ALL items with Racc and sub in Normal Acc only. My Hit % for Jumps alone dropped drastically, very poor for TPing up (which, proper use of jumps can result in amazingly fast TP gain). Sushi, my jump % would drop only a little in comparison with the Racc gear removed. This piece, is amazing potentially for DRGs. We do not suffer any true loss over using Ammo Slot for this. Angon can be subbed in using Macro.

In Short, DRG makes a very good use of this item. even if only Macro'd in for the jumps. Its an expensive tool. but an incredible asset to any DRG who is willing to give it a shot. Thank you.

You level up Polearm when you do a melee strike, you level up Polearm when you jump, you do not level up pole arm when throw Angon. For every weapon skill level in the game, it's either Ranged or Melee. (There are no melee strikes for Crossbow skill, for example. And no Ranged Attacks for Dagger.)

Therefore, seeing as /attack is melee, Angon is range, and you only level up polearm from /attack, I use that to assume that since you level up polearm from jumps that jump is calculated as a melee strike. I think the reason why you see a difference is because sushi, and just about every other +Acc thing Drg can use, also has +R.Acc.

i thimk this might be good for a rng kinda if u unlimited shot this u do good damage and get voke effect, but im no rng so i cant (and wouldnt spend gil on it) to test this out
# Dec 05 2005 at 6:28 PM Rating: Decent
this thing is only useful to brds or bsts
the only thing that you can use is the chr+3 and the hp recovered while healing +3
the racc+99 does nothing, unless ur planning on throwing this thing at a mob
this would be a very very very very very good thing to have though in an xp pt with a pld/nin tank, so they still got the voke.
RE: -.-
# Apr 09 2006 at 8:24 PM Rating: Decent
Comes in handy for a pld for more then just nin sub. 3Chr helps with intimidating for dragon killer tanks.

Also, and pld/nin rich enough to be able to toss one of these just because they need to voke, needs to lend me some money.

I think the cap on this is higher than 100...I've never broken one of the lvl 100 rings out of 25+ tries but I broke this synth trying it twice in a row...on firesday...with adv. imagery...facing NW...all the right conditions...SO...I think the cap is 103-106 actually and NOT 100. I am not going to try this again until I hit at least lvl 97 or better and have my fool's gold furninshing. Losing orichalcum ingots makes me wanna /cry.

For those wondering how it can be lvl 106...

100+6= Adv. imagery (+3) + all three guild +1 items (+3)
I use this
# Nov 11 2005 at 10:09 AM Rating: Default
This really isn't bard made i use it for the CHR and healing hp. But the provoke can bring me down but im good as long as i don't throw it when i am in BCNM's and quest and missions this egg really does help my chr and healing.

A PLD should use this for hate and healing faster. pld/nin could use this so the pld still can keep some hate with flash and the engage. Hit and Provoke whenever the effect goes off and hate made by the pld is stronger. Also like KieronCP said "spam the Ninjustu Ni for more hate". This way we can keep us bards and whm's and blms and redmages LOL and summoners safe. And thats true though u need to throw for it to work.

for pld/nin?
# Oct 16 2005 at 8:14 PM Rating: Default
I would think that this would be used by pld/nin so the pld still can keep a minimal amount of hate with flash, and the engage.. hit and "Provoke" whenever the effect goes off so that the hate generated by the pld is better..

now, this would most definatly work if a thf and drg are in the pt.. Drg vokes.. Thf SaTa's behind pld.. drg high jumps.. but thats just a bias of mine..

Besides @ lv 75.. the pld can spam the other elemental Ni spells for the extra hate..

but honestly I dont know, I am only 58.. I just saw a pld in my ls want this egg when he hits 75.. and got intrigued by what it does..
RE: for pld/nin?
# Nov 01 2005 at 1:43 AM Rating: Decent
Additional effect "provoke" only works if you throw it. The only way I could see that being useful is by using unlimited shot with rng or /rng to pull temp. hate with provoke (but 999 delay >.< and RNG taking hate NO Thanks)...so yeah...this thing is a nice showpiece for anyone but BST... not worth much unless a BST wants the +3 CHR boost macroed in the jug pet slot on charms and the +3 HPH (bard cannot use it because it takes the instrument slot)...honestly a PLD would be better off with fenrir's stone or rosenbogen or some other throwin item. I don't know if CHR+3 would be better than +30hp (day)/+10 eva. (night) from fenrir's stone for PLD.

Yeah pretty much only good for BST...however most BST are rich and can afford them anyways. This is a nice item for us goldsmithers to make...

platinum ingot=105-110k
Pigeon blood ruby=150k
orichalcum ingot=1 mil (790k if you make it from the ori. ores 250k each x3 + platinum ore 40k)
Gold ingot=110-120k
bird egg=500gil lol

Total cost to a goldsmither= ~1.8 million gil to make (not to mention a chance at skillup, but if you break one...orz)...last sold for 3.something million on carbuncle server in July (which means it's worth ~4.5 million now lol). Pigeon Blood is a pain to get a hold of because no one camps Masan much and people snatch them up quick for pigeon earrings...but it is a profitable synth not to mention most BST can afford it. I don't know why more of these are not made. I'm gonna give it a shot and see how fast it sells.

yes the HHP is ok for PLD for them, thats about it, only reasons i see are showing off when healing, bsts, (macroing other items) and rng with US, still nice piece of equip for the above though

Okay I want this egg for my bst at 75. I think the added +3 chr into the ammo slot could free up another slot for something like str, attack, or even acc. I can see how when I'm exping to cap out exp and do merits how this would be useful. The faster healing and the chr bonuses would be awesome for bst. I think that's the main reason for this item. The "provoke" and ranged acc is for the most part useless. I mean it's very unlikely that you would want to toss this item with the price it carries. Now as far as tossing this with unlimited shot yeah that would work, but why? Why would you want to Provoke as a rng. Rangers spend a great deal of their time trying to do tons of damage without taking all the hate away from the tank. If a Rng wanted hate they wouldn't need a egg that vokes to get it. It's really just like the Morion or Phantom Tathlum, but for bst. If you look at those Tathums they have stats ups and they have effects on them like MP drain if you tossed it at the mob. Just the same though you wouldn't want to do that. Well unless you like tossing away tons of gil. You just put them in the ammo slot for the Stat bonus they give you. Bards would probably not use this item due to the fact that their instruments and this cannot be used at same time. As far as bst food or jug items go, it's not hard to macro in the items for when you need them.

Now if I can just find someone with a 100 goldsmithing on Garuda Server to make one for me. They seem to never be on the AH.

I believe Unlimited Shot is a JA. U can use it with throwing ammo. So it doesn't matter whether u equip a bow or not. Please correct me, if i'm wrong.

the item is meant for PLDs specifically..

the RAcc is crap, since it will never be thrown away.
ditto the Added Effect: Provoke.

but the HHP +3 and the Chr +3 is godly.

i dunno if it outweighs the Vit +3/4 you could attach to this slot though...

Only job that should use this: Ranger.

Why?: Unlimited Shot.

What is Unlimited Shot, since im too lazy to look?: The next ranged attack you perform consumes NO ammo.

What is consume?: Stop playing ffxi right now, and go read a freaking book!

All other jobs..... well..... only if you cant find anything better. Which you almost certainly can.
RE: Hmmm.
# Aug 19 2005 at 2:32 PM Rating: Decent
Um, lol i don't think a RNG would ever use this, when instead they could use Arctic Wind, Antarctic Wind, East Wind, which has much more attack (250) and alot less delay (276) and only lvl 72, sur they don't have ranged acc up, but thats what sharpshot is for.
RE: Hmmm.
# Aug 15 2005 at 8:38 AM Rating: Decent
guys this isnt one of those items MEANT to throw!!! you just equip it for the HP + while healing and the CHR, rng could use it with unlimited shot, but itd suck because it gives provoke. idk why it has such good stats, maybe its so if you throw it on accident, it at least hits for high dmg for ur 500k (idk exactly) that u paid for it

why would a ranger use this? answer: they wouldnt. its a throwning piece, they couldnt equipd a ranged weapon and have this equiped. something like nin could equipd this item and sub thf, or mnk, or some other job, and still have provoke. and even that is a stretch.

I have a HQ egg of this in Diabolos Server, I bought @ 3.5m from a guy... Too bad it cancel off my instrument. I wanna sell it off @ 3m at least, anyone interested?

For extra info, this ingredient in my server cost 900k for each craft. It has a low chance of HQ from goldsmithing skill 100. No one is willing to craft this anymore as sure making a loss for every craft. Currently in my server there is only less than 10 HQ egg in here... so if you are interested, /tell Junjie or post a msg in here...

Additional Effect
# Jan 21 2005 at 5:24 AM Rating: Decent
no, read down.
this item uses the 'Additional Effect' effect.
this effect only kicks in randomly. Usually this means every 2-14 swings, you'll get that effect.
Much like flame sword, gust sword, or any spark-wind weapon.

However, PAL/RNG might find a use for this. Unlimited Shot plus throwing this does a lot of DMG to keep hate with. Just a thought. =)
