Level 30 Subjob Items

There are level 30 Earrings, Shields, Belts and Mantles that all trigger on Latent Effects. These all correspond with a job.
All of them activate via Subjob. Nothing else will trigger these to activate, NOT main job, ONLY subjob.
The newest jobs (Blu, Cor, Pup) do not have these items (as of 7/27/06).
Subjob: Bard        - Singer's    (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Song Belt) 
Subjob: Beastmaster - Trimmer's   (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Pick Belt) 
Subjob: Black Mage  - Wizard's    (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Staff Belt) 
Subjob: Dark Knight - Killer      (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Scythe Belt) 
Subjob: Dragoon     - Wyvern      (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Lance Belt) 
Subjob: Monk        - Wrestler's  (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Cestus Belt) 
Subjob: Ninja       - Genin       (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Sarashi) 
Subjob: Paladin     - Esquire's   (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Shield Belt) 
Subjob: Ranger      - Beater's    (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Gun Belt) 
Subjob: Red Mage    - Warlock's   (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Rapier Belt) 
Subjob: Samurai     - Ashigaru    (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Katana Obi) 
Subjob: Summoner    - Magician's  (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Avatar Belt) 
Subjob: Thief       - Pilferer's  (Earring, Mantle,  Aspis, Dagger Belt) 
Subjob: Warrior     - Mercenary's (Earring, Mantle,  Targe, Axe Belt) 
Subjob: White Mage  - Healer's    (Earring, Mantle, Shield, Mace Belt)

There are other Latent effect items that trigger at different things such as Low HP, <100% tp, a bard song on you, This is NOT one of those items.
The only thing that activates these items is your subjob.

It should really tell you how to use the latent effect, I bought it last night for my THF/WAR for 10k... but it's ok because I plan on lvling NIN to 37, so it won't be a complete waste. Maybe, I'll just sub THF instead of WAR... cause I really don't want to be a tank.

ive considered this earring because at lvl 30DRK im subbing thf no question, however, right now i have 2 beetle earrings+1 and i was just wondering whether to give up the attack for this dex(im elvaan so the answer should seem obvious, however,
it always seems like my dmg doesnt live up to its potential) anyway, ill prolly get this earring anyway but i'd appreciate any input, thanks

Just bought one on Siren for 18k. Seems that the price has fallen a bit. Added 2 dex when I subbed thf.

Heh, just resold mine. I bought it originally thinking I'd go drk/thf and the extra DEX would help my sneak attacks. That was before I realized that DEX doesn't factor into sneak attacks when thief is subbed.

Now I don't even play drk/thf, and by the time I will (lvl 60+) there will be better earrings out there.

Oh well.
This earring...

I had Dex: X + 10 before I put this on, and had DEX: X + 10 after I put it on as a THF/NIN. I feel cheated. ^_^

Subjob: Thief

Latent Effect: DEX: 2

For this earring, Latent Effect is activated when you have Thief as your Sub Job.

the sarashi belt has a lantent effect too, i really want to know what tiggers that before i go through hell to get it, please.
THF main

Just tried this last night. ONLY a THF SUBJOB can get the effect. THF as a main job does NOT get the effect. What a ripoff.
Main too ?

Someone says that you HAVE to have /thf (sub) for the latent, but someone says its ok if you have it either subbed or as main.

So my question is; Can a THF/Sub use this ?
It works

I have thief subbed and it does indeed add two dexterity with my hit points full.

FYI you do not need low hp to trigger the effect, the only requirement for the +2 DEX is /THF

Final Fantasy XI 12-14-11 Update wrote:
Adjust the resolution of menus.
The main screen resolution for "FINAL FANTASY XI" is dependent on the "Overlay Graphics Resolution" setting.
If the Overlay Graphics Resolution is set higher than the Menu Resolution, menus will be automatically resized.

I thought of it first:

only when subbed

The new earings only work if your subjob pertains to that earing, so you would have tro sub thief to this.

This was posted in another thread somewhere, and has yet to be verified personally. However it seems reasonable, and I would assume applies to all other of these earrings as well (logical reasoning required, of course.) Pilfer is a thief word, thus:

The Latent Effect: +2 Dex is accessed when the character is either a THF main or subbed.
