Ok, i own one of only a few of these on Bismarck, they are very rare and seldom used. It will be perfect for my PLD at 30 (now 21) for tight spots and pts with RNGs and BLMs or DRKs.

I got mine for 1gil from windy AH, yes, 1. Going rate when you can find them (good luck to you) is 30k so not a huge amount, just a hassle to find.

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.

Enmity: Enmity has many uses in the game.

Look at Paladin and Warrior Artifact Armor. Both of them have +Enmity, yes? +Enmity is great for tanking jobs. Enmity will cause a mob to "Hate" you more. Provoking with +Enmity gear will pretty much increase the effect of provoke, which is a big help.

Enmity is also on Samurai Artifact Armor. why? If a 60+ Samurai subs Thf, he can use SATA to transfer a good amount of hate over to the tank, another instance of where +Enmity is good.

But, Enmity isn't always good to have. Take Black Mage and Ranger. Both deal large ammounts of damage throughout a battle, yes? +Enmity would be awful for them, but -Enmity would be great. Well, Both Black Mage, and Ranger Artifact Armor have -Enmity! With -Enmity, they could hit as often, if not more than they did with no + or - Enmity, and they will not pull hate as often (May still pull hate sometimes).

Hope this post has helped ^_^

This is the subjob /war effect mantle no? I assume it's dropped from BCNM like the others?
