My two gil on the magic condom

Although I hate this thing to high hell, I have to give it props. I brought this yesterday and decided to give this thing a go. I have the hat, body and pants of the JSE (NQ). This combo comes up to about +12 to magic acc. This is the basic setup I have when i pt

Ammo: Phantom Tathlum
Back: Rainbow Cape
Body: Chasuble/Errant/Warlock's Tabard
Ear: Phantom Earring
Feet: Duelist's Boots
Fingers: Ether Ring/ Diamond Ring
Hands: Duelist's Gloves
Head: Warlock's Chapeau/Elite Beret/Wise Cap
Legs: Wise Braconi/Errant Slops
Neck: Spider Torque
Waist: Penitent's Rope
Weapon: All NQ staves

Now, before i brought this magic condom cover, i could land all my enfeebles with no pretty much little or no resist. However, i recently joined a sky ls and did a couple of Optical Hat runs.

Kirin: Everyone knows how much Magic evasion these dam gods have, so i wasn't expecting much to land here anyhow. so with my normal setup of the JSE I had at the time and my beret, i thought i would be able to land something.

Result of Kirin fight: Only reliable thing that landing on him was ES gravity, which i knew it was. Most of my magic from there on was pretty much resisted. I decided to change my JSE body for my AF body. It only resulted in a 4 second gravity land. Some ppl might call that good, but I've always like my enfeebles to stick. I will be fighting Kirin again this weekend to see what this magic condom can do

Hakutaku: This guy is a pain in the ***. He's got massive HP and if you lose, ur basically either out of 2mil+ or alot of farming time. So having a good pt setup is paramount. I fought this guy on two ocassions.

Hakutaku #1 Result: This was with the beret and JSE body and legs. The only enfeeble that would randomly land was slow and paralyze. I didn't see paralyze active more than maybe once. Gravity was impossible to land. I was thinking maybe because i was rdm/drk so i didn't think much of it until...

Hakutaku #2 Result: This time i was wearing the almighty condom hat with the JSE legs and body. At first, my enfeebles were doing the same thing...not hitting thier mark. Then, after some cursing and agressive retrys, they finally started to land. Gravity, slow, and paralyze all landed after being casted in a row. I was really shocked when I landed gravity due to the hard time i was having during the other run. Gravity seemed to last longer as well as all the other enfeebles I casted. I didn't clock how long it was, but each time i recasted gravity, it would land and stick for a time. (my guess would about 12-19 secs). Slows are para stuck well enough to were when i started recasted the last one i casted was still on.

Conclusion: Although this hat may be ugly as sin, from what i've done and seen, it's worth buying due to it's stats. I'd be damned if i was caught walking around jeuno or whitegate with this PoS on, but during a fight when rdms are blinking tornados, just try it on for yourself and prays no one sees u with it on. Maybe someone will come up with the same results I did.

ok i know for a fact that that Chausable SUX compaired to the AF body for enfeebs but I have a theory about MAG ACC that, so far, have held true versus all NMs ive faced...

My theory is that each isolated stat, (Accuracy, Atk, Evasion etc.) except for physical atk is worth 2 related skill when pertaining to the exact stat; like if you get +2 ACC your going to hit as tho you had +4 Sword skill (i chose sword for the example) no harder mind you, just more accurate.

That said, I believe that the Wise Cap is the equal +10 Enfeebling Skill when trying to land a debuff. As bac up me and four other RDMs on my server have been testing we're not 100% satisfied (I like the sliek black cap vs the ***** cap in the looks department) as to drop our elite berrets but it seems to be true. The only things that ever resist me are gods (Gods hav UBER HIGH Magick Evasion they resist often even if you had 343 skill) but all other NMs and HNMs are fairly easy to enfeeb. at any rate thats my theory if any Hard Core RDMs out there wanna help us test this out post your results here so every one can see when they check on wise cap^^

and I never wanna see someone use a Chaus over the AF body for enfeebs lol i already tested that and I sear to you, the Chaus SUX vs the AF body when enfeebling I dont know if my theory is flawed or not, but i know the AF beat the Chaus each time. Hell I got resisted VS Aura Statues afew times with it lol but I do hav to admit it looks pretty cool (Alot better than the ***** Cap >.<)

Oh if your curious, My enfeeb is 320 (Real Skill) + 8 Mag Acc to make up 336

i *THINK* im right but lets see what you guys find. And yes, this is strickly for HNM stuff you shuld be fine if you just wanna be your average RDM and PT and have fun an what not ^^ cus the wise stuff is pretty goofey looking lol

Most of this gear is only good for solo, I'd stick with your AF hat if it was me, it's not worth the gil, but if you have a HNMLS that is willing to fork over the cash for these, I wouldn't say no :3 Even the Errants hat is better then this as far as EXP and Gods. INT + helps enfeebs stick as well as accuracy of spells. +5 is good, but like I said before NOT worth the gil, use better food, cheapskate.

I was in a PT with a RDM with this hat on and my Elemental Magic was outdamaging theirs, and I am lvl 70 and they are 75 D: ~ Food for thought. PS: I had AF and a SH on.

My opinion.

lol sry about last hit enter too early. Well magic acc. is exactly what the name implicates.. the acc of your spell. This is a must for many HNM's and Gods, I've heard ppl buy it solely for 'kirin' aswell. If your going to get this set of JSE rdms, buy the pants and body first, they are great for exp pt's and such. And actually beat out errant armor during mb's usually, considering you sacrifice some damage for the chance to land your spell at full dmg. This is a great set, i recommend it for any rdm whos serious about his enf's.
My opinion.

The stats on this hat seem to be extremely useful, and since it's only one Eltoro leather instead of two, it makes the hat a better deal than the JSE Body piece (Chasuble). They both have magic accuracy +5.
The downside to this hat is that it lacks the ability to enhance Fastcast like the regular Chapeau does ; ;
Come on, Red Mages are known for their pimp hat. This thing is ugly as sin.

magic accuracy is basicly Elemental seal, but this is ES in spades
Magic acc

My take on Magic Acc is the chance of the spell being resisted or not. Such as enfeeb magic, i assume this would make rdm's alot more powerful in that area of debuff's (paralyze, slow, gravity, blind, etc) too bad its looks like a head condom ;; ~ nice stats tho

I think it's the ability to stick your enfeebles and make your elementals not get resisted.

The description for Elemental Seal says "Improve the accuracy of your next spell". So it should work like a mini version of elemental seal, which would be excellent for RDM since they are main enfeebler and their elementals often get resisted.
Magic Accuracy?

What exactly is Magic Accuracy? This JSE seems to be the only set of items with it.
