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.

This thing is so rare, it doesn't even have a listing on Bismarck's Jeuno AH....

For a while I thought it didn't even exist...

I've been leveling WHM (with /RDM sub), and this shield would be nice for 30-39...
good ite,

this is very good for bards, if you are one of the few that sub rdm. bards can only use the level 30 latent shields, Elegant Shield at level 40 and the Genbu's Shield at level 74. i think this is one of the best items for bard at this level.
So its only useful to sub?

The latent effect means a certain condition must be met before it is triggered. Most latent effects are HP related - these trigger for these shields is sub-job.
This isn't...

I think the lvl 30 shields' latent effects are triggered like the lvl 30 earrings' ones, so...

Latent Effect Trigger: Must have RDM as sub-job

One of the more useful lvl 30 LE sheilds. Some mages sub RDM for the additional INT or MND (based on their main job). I've also seen DRK/RDMs (probably for En-spells), BRD/RDM (for curing), and even THF/RDM (not really sure why).

BRD/RDM (for curing)

BRD/RDM mainly for Fast Cast, actually. (Yes, it works on Songs.) The RDM SSE ("Subjob-Specific Equipment") that Bards crave is probably the Warlock's Mantle, which improves Fast Cast.

When it comes to shields, most BRDs will probably prefer the Elegant Shield, which gives CHR. The Warlock's Shield isn't bad, though. It has more DEF, for starters.

This is probably one of the possible winnings from one of the new BCNM 30 battles available after the last update. I'm sorry, I wish I could be more exact about which ones, but there's your start.

Also, the Latent Effect is very likely triggered by your Subjob, in this case RDM.
Anyone with more info on this?
