You all fail to see one major point on this piece.. It's the only body piece WHM can use with haste+ on it. xD Nothing great for exping, but a WHM/NIN with..

Blessed mitts (+5%)
Blessed pants (+3%)
Blessed boots (+2%)
Swift Belt (+4%)
Walahra Turban (+5%)
and Nashira Manteel (+3%)
PLUS hasting him/herself (+12.5% I believe)
=34.5% haste
=Nice utsusemi recast times ;o
{Can I have it?}

I think it'd be pretty nice, though Noble's or Reverend Mail would be better in a lot of cases. It's really too bad the Blessed set has so much enmity- on it.. Tanking as WHM/NIN is fun, and Blessed helps a lot, but hurts your hate-holding ability. :(

Gear haste cap is 25%, with march and hastes you can get up to 50% haste on recasts and 70 or 80% on melee attacks.

His gear haste adds up to 22% which is fine. Most melee are in this range with a good haste set.

Haidate, swift, turban, fuma sune-ate, dusk gloves. 20%

Black belt, turban, haidate. 22%

Swift, turban, dusk gloves, unicorn feet, haidate. 20%

Dusk/homam gloves, homam legs, homam feet, turban, swift, raparee harness. 22%

Add in the normal Victory March + Haste (11% and 12ish%) for merit parties and you have:

NIN 43%, MNK 45%, WAR 43%, THF 45%. Which is fine for recasts. Hell NIN/DRK's usually aim for something like this setup to drop Stun recast to 25ish sec.

you forgot fuma for 25 percent haste on mnk
Chasuble has some advantages over this

It really depends on how you play RDM. Chasuble +1 has +25 mp that this doesnt have and +1 Magic Accuracy. On my server people pay 9 million for a astral earring with 25 mp so having the Chasuble +1 with 25 mp can be pretty good.
Tabard all the way.

This piece is all about the magic accuracy and dark magic skill. Perfect for stun. Duelist's Tabard is for a tiny increase in speed but I want to make sure my Stuns last

The Duelist Tabard is for the recast time. For the most part, if you're RDM/DRK, you have to have stun prepared for the major fights, and stun often. Nashira is good if you cant get all the duelist's or other gear that may be expensive.

5 dark magic is pretty much neglible on Stun. Chasuble/Chasuble+1 is arguably as good or slightly less effective, but much easier to obtain.

29 Sec Recast w/ Haste+Chapeau
24 Sec Recast w/ Haste+Tabard+Chapeau.

The only thing RDM is good for when on Stun duty is Chainspell+Stun. If you're in a stun order the shorter recast time doesn't help all that much. In Chainspell it definetely has no merit. Plus you are neglecting magical accuracy on chasuble and magical accuracy and dark magic skill with using nashira.

Duelist's is great in certain situations but in most times when you are being pointed to chainspell+stun something. I'd rather have it not resist and throw a TP move on me mid chainspell than use something that's not doing anything but looking pretty as Chainspell neglects casting and recast time.

5 dark magic skill might seem neglible to you but combined with other armor seeing as we as RDM have an E rating in Dark Magic, every bit together is useful. Nashira Manteel, Crimson Finger Gauntlets, Abyssal Earring, Dark Earring and Dark Torque lays out to...

INT+2, +30 Dark Magic Skill, & +5 Magic Accuracy.

I'd say the manteel owns it's worth on adding to that alone. Those few seconds more you can add to your stun is worth more than you think.

they really never let you stun without chainspell? sad ._.

How sarcastic... I still Stun outside of chainspell and given it's short casting time already, it's not worth lessening that much more. I'd rather have it stick for more duration than lower it by a few fractions of a second.

i have a feeling that this is gonna become a sought after piece for RDM^^

This piece really isn't as exciting as the other ones for RDM at least, especially considering its the body piece. Duelist Tabard (fast cast > 3% haste for spells and healing magic + 15) and Chasuble (magic accuracy + 5) are superior and equal to this. Having this would just allow you to sell the Chasuble so no item slot would be saved. I know Im tossing around a Duelist Tabard like its nothing and easy to get for all RDMs, but Im sure THIS is much harder to obtain.

In comparison, the legs for instance, give magic accuracy + 3 and enfeeblig magic + 5, that is Wise Braconi + 1 and a spider torque wrapped into one! Plus it has haste!! That is much more exciting than dark magic + 5 for me at least. So I think this is the least desirable piece for RDM :/

This is 100% better than Chausuble. The best feature of Chausuble is 5 magic acc...which this has. Not to mention it has 3% haste as well as 5 healing and 5 dark magic. That can mean stronger and faster cures and drains/aspirs/stuns.

Which this is great for helping with. Not only because of the magical accuracy but the dark magic skill will help me land longer stuns. Which is a huge role endgame.

I'm excited to get this myself.

Proto-Ultima drops some items which you can trade to an NPC in Mhaura to get this set.

pretty sure it has to do with Limbus. Similar to the AF+1 and armor upgrades
