I'll admit that I certainly like the way the gauntlets look, but I'd rather use and DO use Alkyoneus Bracelets. It has 16 def, and may nothave any atk +, but it doesn't have any dmg + either and instead of +4 STR Alky's have + ELEVEN STR. Whcih imo far outdoes the gadlings. If I get these it will be purely for fashion sense.

absorb enhancement/+%dmg taken

a little late :P

but the enhancing absorb effect according to my results, increase duration by 10 seconds per piece (tested using 3 pieces, 1 then 2 then 3; total of 30second increase for a max time of 2minutes). in the case of wearing all 4 pieces that grant absorb enhancement, i would guess it extends absorb duration by 40 seconds.

as for the +% damage taken effect, that really only affects you if the monster hits for 100 or more damage per hit. only in that case would you notice the significant increase in damage taken. but for monsters that hit for 50 and under, the increase shouldn't be of much concern imo.

This armour set works best with DRK/NIN for obvious reasons, IMHO its THE set for TP burn pts. Sadly I can only afford the leg piece right now, but one day soon...

Happy hunting
Looking to buy this.

I dont play DRK im working on the quest right now but couldnt you use Absorb VIT to compensate for the extra damage?

Thats possible, assuming your only using the hands when farming. A full set might be a drag since more dmg more down time, even though we can drain and aspir. I'm not against this JSE set, its just that all that add dmg% acts as a means of balancing the whole set, which w/o it would be monstrous.

Well, from a farming/soloing standpoint, the Damage Taken +6% is pretty trivial since most of the time a mob will be doing probably around 20-30 damage max. Cutting off 1-3 damage wont really hurt. However, the STR+4 and ATK+8 is very nice.

I'm also curious as to how the Enhanced Absorb spells work. Does their duration last longer? My gues is probably that they give better results with higher stats given to you / taken away from the mob.

Really nice armor if not a bit suicidal when farming or soloing.
