As u very well know, u need Riverne Site #A01 to get to these guys, anywyz it is very true that u can wear a emp pin for more eva and dex+3 but being lvl39, u can use this for future quests and missions in the CoP series and as a nin, tanking, well u know that we get poisoned like crazy, to be able to resist it helps, specially when solo'ing, since nin dont have anything like bloody bolts for hp except a katana and pots. Being that emp pin is 5.5mil now in midgard, and VE is being camped more than before now, i'd say... this bandanna owns. Best alternative to emp pin in game until ohat and luckily its a guaranteed drop too.

Ranger's Cheap Emp Pin

Dobson Bandanna - Lv.39 All Jobs All Races [Head] AGI+3 Evasion+5 Enhances "Resist Poison" effect. Resist Poison is a Ranger Job Trait. Good for broke rangers who cant afford the Emperor's Hairpin.
(It's Currently 1.2million on Asura b/c of a Gilfarmer bot named Blunda who has camped it 24/7 for a good 3+ months now. - AND gets it 60% of the time. Someone ban the chick, I feel like getting a WHM w/ AF1 quest and shadowbinding the NM on her.)
The drawbacks; no DEX for melee attacks - RNG doesn't need melee attacks all that much, good ones are out of AoE range half the time anyway. Also, it's 5 less evasion than the Emp Pin. I gess you could refute this problem by saying Utsusemi will absorb attacks, if you get hate, long enough for the tank to regain control. And lastly, it has no DEF - yes, DEF:0 - none. You could have the same argument as evasion here, but I dont like feeling like too much as a piece of paper.
More on the NM(s) in the NM's posts.

Just as a side note, I know I personally prefer my Emp Pin as a Thief, but Emp Pin has no defense, either, and HP -15

Yeah RNG has Resist Poison but all armor that enhances a job trait gives the trait to you even if you don't have it. Emperor's Hairpin is much better than this but if you can't get one, THF and NIN could benefit a lot from this too.

Its spelled Dobson BandanNa, 2 Ns for some reason.

because that's how you spell "bandanna"

According to dictionary.com:

2 entries found for bandanna.
ban·dan·na or ban·dan·a ( P ) Pronunciation Key (bn-dn)
A large handkerchief usually figured and brightly colored.

So there you have it, both are correct. But I should say I still think it looks better with only 1 n. And by the way, this is the only Bandana in the game spelled with 2 n's, the other 8 existing in the game have only 1, see for yourself:

Yet to be decided, looks like it goes in the Head slot.
