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.

Aha... finally found it. The Pilferer's Aspis can be found through the BCNM 30 Toadal Recall.

What happens when you equip these shields to the jobs that can't normally equip them, like RNG? Is the skill capped at F, or does it not even work at all?

I know most everyone goes Rng/Nin which of course allows you to dual wield, but since I play as a Rng/Thf my secondary slot has been empty until now. This shield is perfect for my Rng/Thf. Now I have extra defense and I actually make use of the Thf shield skill.

I recommend this to anyone who decides to go Rng/Thf instead of Rng/Nin
sub jod thf

you guys sure that you have thf a sub only and it cant be thf main too? id make a lot more sense to half these shields and if i remeber correctly this whole "latant effect means it depends on your sub" is pretty new.....anyways im sure if you just have thf main or sub this will work.

This is actually one of the more useful latent effect shields.

Use this shield to skill up your shield skill. Very nice addition.

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

Latent Effect Trigger: Must have THF as sub-job

Perhaps for WAR/THF tanks in exping.

Any job subbing THF for farming could benefit from this shield (even if you main job doesn't have a shield skill, the THF sub takes care of that).

Perhaps one of the most useful lvl 30 LE shields.

They define them as "Latent Effects" and not "Subjob Effects" simply because there are a variety of effects that can trigger them (Latent = Hidden and revealed by a trigger). In the case of the lv 30 earrings (and probably these shields since they have the same descriptive name), the trigger is subjob.

However, in some cases, like the lv 70 earrings, the LE is triggered by low HP. There are likely other activation costs as well for other Latent Effect items.

Remember the Pilferer's Earing and all the other lvl 30 BCNM earings that have a latent. (They also have the same names as these shields) so I'm guessing that like them your Sub Job triggers the Latent effect.
That's just a guess but I'm 90% sure it's right.
It might be your main job that triggers it but i don't think so..

Nope, it's never been like that. Latent effects are triggered by a specific subjob, for example the latent effect on a Pilferer's Earring will only activate if -Thief- is your subjob. It will not activate in any other circumstances.

-_-" There ARE low hp latent effects as well as various other circumstance effects. Latent effects are not only limited to subjob triggers.
