well, as a 74 RNG who doesnt have this piece of AF2 yet, i think that it is useless nowadays since everyone have optical hat which gives RACC+10 ACC+10 and Eva+10 ....let's see. you get hate while you have evasion+10 (rather than other eva+ equips) plus utsusemi ni/ichi .. whats better? of course Evasion+RACC is way much better than the scout's beret ... and for the recycle part.. if u are 73 RNG( which is the beret's lvl) wouldn't you have enough gil to spend on bullets / bolts and other thingz? and for your information, this is for ARROWS only.. and at high lvls arrows go to hell ... bullets and bolts ONRY .. so its a totally loser.. my 2 cents only...

Ironically, seeing that this piece seems the be the most common piece of af2 for Rangers, it is the only piece I haven't gotten yet. I've seen it drop twice each time not getting high lot in the last 9months. But this coming from the ranger who has gotten Scout's Jerkin > Scout's Socks > Scout's Bracers > Scout's Braccae and in that order. I should feel lucky. But I hope to pick this up for, if nothing better, novelty value. I wonder how much longer this piece is going to hold out on me.
what the f*** is wrong with you ppl!

look people if you read this just listen they make the final hats useful for your job same with the other parts of it if you don't mind me saying i would rather wear whm af2 than anyother equip saves gil and don't have to give it up. but if you think this sucks then go ahead i have all jobs but only job i have over them all is whm 41 but my suggestion is that if you hate the hat switch your job if you like the hate keep the job now sit the f*** down and shut up cause this whining of af2 hats sucking while af1 rocks is bullshiet. thats all and maybe if you guys should not rat out on equips we all can be a lil happier in here.
i love this hat

I have to say that I have this hat and I love it for farming. I tested it out alot to see how much ammo it saves. On average I save about 30% ammo. The af1 hat isn't better at the least when farming r.att doesn't mean squat, come to think of it at my lvl it doesn't mean anything for lvling either. I am sure alot of rangers have **** loads of gil from either leginimate ways or gil buying, but I am always needing gil so this helps alot.
You're right

It's not a great piece of equip, Optical Hat remains the best RNG headpiece in the game.

I'd rather focus all my MND in one piece of gear, like the Sune-tae.

Optical hat isn't as great later on. Once you start to merit archery or marksmanship or east sushi, this or wyvern helm are a better choice. People used to rely soley on accuracy stuff, but merits and sushi make it so you can deck out in hitting power and not miss as much.

I had this hat for a while now, it's just taking up dust in my Mog house.

I find Wyvern or Opti hat better for ranger anyways, the STR or Racc boost.

For "Recycle", who cares if I save 1 bolt/bullet/arrow in 1-10 shots.. Not like ammo is very expensive anyways..

I think I will go throw it away now, since i find it pretty useless.

Stats could be better

The stats on this hat are pretty average, nothing jaw dropping. I'd be nice if it had "Enhances the Effect of Barrage", but I guess that would make us RNGs too powerful >:)

ok, MND may seem useless to rangers, especially an amount so small, but it can be good. this is true because with a MND boost of any amount, you're taking slightly less magic damage (hardly noticeable, but just something that MND does that i wanted to bring up), and it's also good if you have a crossbow with holy bolts (quite a common thing). you may or may not have known that MND increases the damage on the additional effect: light damage.

recycle is good because according to another 75 rng i know called Vegito (i think that's his name. anyway, he has this), it kicks in roughly 1 in every 3 or 4 hits. but, according to Cheesdog, for him it kicks in approx. 1 in every 10 hits, so i can say from these two opinions that it's pretty random. nonetheless, you'll be saving 10%-30% of your gil on ammo that you won't be shooting at enemies because of this ^_^

just my two cents...

*EDIT* also, optical hat is so popular because of its ranged acc+10, and i'm sure a lot of rangers will be crying over an amount of ranged acc like this lost, and i understand this. i've come to this conclusion for myself personally: i would only get scout's beret and wear it on a constant basis if i had other uber ranged acc boosts (e.g. peacock charm, trailer's kukri, behemoth rings, and dusk trousers).

It means, it will randomly cause any shot that would have used ammo to not use it that attack.

You can have this activate, fire an arrow, and have it still be in your stack. This does not use the ability Unlimited Shot, you can still use that for your rank 7 bolt, but this is a good way to save money. Enmity -3 is also very nice to any DD.

I see this thing has Recycling on it, and I see someone said is random activation of Unlimited Shot. Is this correct? I just want to make sure this is what it does cuz if so, that's bad-***. Oh, and if it does randomly activate Unlimited Shot, does it make it unusable to you? I would hate to have it activate right before I used Sidewinder with a PPA and not be able to use Unlimited Shot ><

Why does the JSE head gear always suck?


HAHAHA that has to be the STUPIDEST thing ive seen, do you know how helpfull Recycle is? Not bad to have arrows not get wasted, and if you think that isnt great, go lvl rng. Also, enmity -3 is great, and once again, if you find that non-helpfull, go lvl rng

This does suck. Ranger AF1 Beret is better than this. I have the Scout's Beret and farm with it on for Recycle. Let me tell you it only kicks in 1/10 shots if that. No R.acc bonus, no r.att bonus, no agi, no str, no evasion, emnity -3 doesn't help with 1000dmg slug shots.

1. Optical Hat
2. War beret
3. Hunter's Beret
4. Emperor's Hairpin
5. Scout's Beret

Hahaha, Mr. Plaguekitty, not very nice to laugh at someone when you don't know all the facts. Also, most Rangers don't use "arrows" at the level to wear this - bolts or bullets only.
Now, tell me to go level Ranger.

-Funny I got rated down for stating the facts. I have all the hats listed above. Do any of you even have the Scout's Beret? I do. Enough said.

Maybe you get rated down because you sound like a know-it-all jerk who is trying to be high-and-mighty with his "I have this, do you?!?!" attitude than someone who is actually trying to offer some constructive and helpful advice. Just because you have something worthwhile to say doesn't mean you need to be a total ****** about it.

Why does the JSE head gear always suck? MND+4 SWEET!!

Nevermind, I take that back. This may be usefull to keep in one's inventory in case of emergency. And by "emergency," I mean what happens every 5 minutes. Not that barrage gets enough hate on it's own, it also puts TP over 100... That's when you put on your "magic hat" and the monster leaves you alone, yay.

Then you take it off cause it sucks, and put on your normal hat to make the enemy think you are a BLM or something.

Now, I don't want to go off on a rant, but, why couldn't we have "Optical Sunglasses?" Wouldn't that be way cooler!? S-E is messing with my mind, I know it.

I hate this game. Why do I play it?

Doesn't mind affect weapon skills? If so that's probably why it has the +4 mind.
