Even though we had NO AF DROPS AT ALL I want to forward some props to Kimera, Hirokei and the others who made this a very clean and organized effort in Dynamis. I will get the Saotome Kote someday, I can wait. Meanwhile, thanks for the practice that is how Dyanmis is done - organized and clean.

more invites to Dynamis-Bastok prease ^^

Edit: I owe my Saotome Kotes, with goldeneye styling to Laeral a brilliant player who organized a North American Dynamis run on Fridays. Finally got these ultra-rare drops!! {Found It!}

tips for noobs

get a puller that knows what they are doing, especially a puller that understands the meaning of "sacrifice pull" which, sorry to say, is an all important skill in the expert Dynamis areas. Say, for example the puller messes up and links like the entire zone of mobs and can see it... in this case DO NOT BRING THEM BACK TO CAMP. Bringing the mobs back to camp means a complete wipe so just SACRIFICE pull instead of ruining everyone's chance in Dynamis.

for some reason sam has emnity on both af and relic armor.. ..?? why is that?
RE: Emnity....
# Sep 02 2005 at 1:39 PM Rating: Decent
As stated in another forum thread... Enmity+ for a SAM is good because if the tank loses hate, rather than heading after a mage, a monster would more likely turn towards the SAM and hit him instead... this would allow the tank to regain hate (i.e. Flash, Provoke, etc.). And since SAM have high HP and (typically) somewhat higher equipment DEF than other melee jobs (aside from WAR) as well as parrying, they can typically take a few more hits than other melee jobs. ^^

i'm not positive, but i think the +enmity is good for transfering on a sata.

You are correct.
RE: Emnity....
# Jul 23 2005 at 4:35 PM Rating: Default

SAM Enmity is for Tp Gain as well.
RE: Emnity....
# Dec 02 2008 at 5:38 PM Rating: Decent
Actually it was written in an interview I read once that SE did actually intend for SAM to be a tank.

(Dont take my word for it until I find that link. Just have to dig it out of the million pages of forums I read.)

Holy ****... as if sam wasn`t powerful enough.... "Enhances MEDITATE" o.o man... i`d hate to be in an uncapped ballista going against any sam wearing these...
dropped 1230am est!
# Jan 26 2005 at 2:30 AM Rating: Decent
got these gloves tonight they are a sams wetdream in exp ! 300% after 2 meditates /moan!
RE: dropped 1230am est!
# Jun 11 2005 at 2:10 PM Rating: Decent
imagen if you will these plus the af1 helm *drool* thats 2 more increasments which for those of you not to good with math is 140% per meditate:D you can ws and then end up will 53%(your ws gives you at least 13%) thats awsome
RE: dropped 1230am est!
# Jan 30 2006 at 2:21 PM Rating: Decent
Myochin Kabuto gives you 120-140% TP Per meditate already. Wearing these would boost it another 20-40%. So, at best, you would get 180% TP Per meditate if you macro'd these in with your Myochin Kabuto. Very nice, indeed. Typically, depending on the situation, I'll Meditate at 40% TP and use my WS at 100%, as I'm getting in a few hits here and there, I'm usually left with about 75% TP after the fact. Usually, I like using Meditate when I'm at about 60% TP, get 100, use a WS, gain 100%, WS again or wait for another Skillchain. I'd like to receive these, though I've only been on one Dynamis (Dynamis-Jeuno) After our first wipe, we re-raised and everyone got their heads on straight. I don't think most of the group were prepared on what they were about to face. I had a lot of fun. I'm considering funding my own. But, we'll see.

you just macro them in, for instance this is my meditate macro if i had them

1: /p (meditate) <call21>
2: /equip head "Myochin Kabuto"
3: /equip hands "Saotome Kote"
4: /ja "meditate" <me>

then you could either macro in your jse gloves or whatever your using in maybe your acc or str set up, id do it in acc set up so i could quip my optical hat back as well. also, seeing as how if you arent subbing thf by lvl 60 you are a noob, +1 enmity isnt all that bad really, does wonders for TA,

Or you can just be subbing war because for initial provoke. Thf sub is pretty good actually for WS and hate transfer. Of course you pretty much lose provoke especially if your whm is in trouble and your tank is dead. Whos the noob there?
