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.

A ranger subbing warrior could really use this because of thier unability to hold shields, just some extra defence and the occasional blocked attack.

Edit: The "Killer" shield only has 4 defense with latent effect HP +5 and CHR +2

Black Mages could equip this, just because they can...they still use wands at this level, and they have the open slot (Faerie Shield is really horrible and overpriced). So 6 DEF won't be bad for them.

This shield is pointless.

Nope. Ive seen War/Nin not dual wield, because of delay, just exploiting Utsusemi
# Nov 10 2004 at 8:48 AM Rating: Default
Of course that still doesnt explain why someone would want this Sheild, but think about a tank with Utsusemi AND Shield skill, and if you are going to use a shield you might as well use one that adds attack.

After your previous statements adding this only implies that you think you can equip a two handed weapon and this shield to add to your ATT rating.
Ludicrous. This shield is pointless. And may god have mercy on your soul for thinking otherwise. PS: It is nin subjob to use.

Jabed, WAR has the same rating in 1 handed axes as 2 handed ones. High level WAR/NIN tanks sometimes use a 1 handed axe and a Tatami Shield (or other shield) and reap the benefits of Utsusemi and a shield. There is no law that says you have to weild 2 weapons just because you are /NIN.

Um, no. WAR has an A in 1-Handed Axes and an A+ in Greataxes. Sure, only a 6 point difference in skills, but the ratings are different nonetheless. Not to mention that Greataxe is the only weapon Warriors own with WSs that only they can use. No offense, but please be sure to straighten up on your facts next time. ^^;

Call it pointless if you'd like, it'll help keep the AH prices low. I'll take the 6 defense points for my Smn/Whm, and to hell with the latent effect. Nothing else in the slot otherwise. Healer's Shield is only 2 Def, and I don't really need +2 Dex as a Smn.

Genin means "low-rank person, menial" in Japanese, so I doubt it's for Samurai. Most likely, a lowly 'soldier', ie Warrior.

A Warrior is a "lowly soldier"? K, sure, yeah, lemme just outdamage you hit for hit and protect you from harm, k?

Lol, Galka WAR thinks he can outdamage Mithra THF.. You can outdamage for a minute, but then you're blown the hell outta the water.
RE: not SAM
# Nov 14 2004 at 1:06 PM Rating: Decent
sorry dude but a galka war can outdmg mithra thf, at 37 galka war can hit for almost 100 dmg a hit with berserk and do sturmwinds for up to 400 dmg with sneak attack. I beleive that outdmges there 10-20 dmg a hit and 250 dmg sneak trick and 500 dmg viper bites. Thfs only have good dmg once a minute, its nice for skill chains and holding hate but wars do more overall dmg. Wars also outdmg darkknight until up into the 60's. drk weapon skills suck till than, and they have to choose between sneak attack and berserk while war can get both.

The main reason to sub NIN is dual wield, so why on earth would anyone equip a shield when subbing ninja?
Final Fantasy XI 12-14-11 Update wrote:
Adjust the resolution of menus.
The main screen resolution for "FINAL FANTASY XI" is dependent on the "Overlay Graphics Resolution" setting.
If the Overlay Graphics Resolution is set higher than the Menu Resolution, menus will be automatically resized.

I thought of it first:

i believe this one is in fact triggered off of /nin sub.. sorry ^^;;

just because they are keeping things balanced with a shield for each job, doesn't mean they have to be useful XD

I think these lvl 30 shields' latent effects are triggered like the lvl 30 earrings - so ...

Latent Effect Trigger: Must have NIN as sub-job
ninja shield?

well, it doesnt have to be useful, but they are keeping it fair with one for each job, so at least its real.. if not useful for the job it's intended for ^^

think of it like this: your 30whm/15blm gets a nifty 6def shield ^^
not getting this one

These shields from this update probably have their latent effect activated if you have a certain subjob. If I understand correctly what a genin is, this one is for ninja (and why would anyone subbing ninja be using a shield?)
RE: not getting this one
# Jul 09 2004 at 11:22 PM Rating: Decent
ummmm....yeah.....warriors sub ninja all the time.....especially if they are doing the "blink tank" combo...
RE: not getting this one
# Jul 10 2004 at 12:00 AM Rating: Default
But NIN sub gives dual wield...

Thus all the 2 axe WARs...

This shield is odd.

It must be for a different subjob then, maybe samurai...
