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.

Subjob: Bard

Latent Effect: Evasion: 5

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

Isn't it activated when you have a song active on you? Or something like that? Maybe I'm hallucinating. >_>

No, you are thinking of the Melody Earrings. These are part of the level 30 subjob activated LE earrings.

While you may enjoy feeling superior to others, Do your homework before showing your ignorance off in public
Just about every level 30 newbie on the server knows that many of the new earrings and belts latent effects are activated by sub jobs.

Latent effect has NOTHING to do with SJ.
its based solely on the percentage of hit points the player has.
Some kick in at 1/4 whilst others may require less HP before kicking in like 1/5.

I am sorry, but you are mistaken. These are part of the group of level 30 subjob activated latent effect earrings.

"Latent Effect" simply means there are conditions which must be true in order to gain the effect mentioned. Three different Latent Effects are (and by no means the only 3 LE's in FFXI - just 3 better known LE's):

Level 30 LE Earrings: Subjob Activated
Level 50 LE Rings: Health in yellow or below and less than 100% TP
Melody Earring: When you have any song on you.

Melody Earring does in fact activate (+5 Evasion) when any song is on the wearer. Each of these Latent Effects has a different activator and so does every latent effect in the game have a different activator.

So thats how you got them mistaken. If you see anything I post and think I am wrong, please look it up yourself (not just asking your buddies, because they will most likely be incorrect) and then post my mistake. I will concede if you show me testing to the contrary.
