Life Saver

This move is a life saver for pld.

Chivalry is awesome, I would advise any pld to get this and cap it (more merits in = less cool down time)

I pretty much always have TP when tanking I have no idea why people say pld never gets TP?!

Anyway after SE gifted up with Repraisal *spelling* there is no longer need to store 300TP all the time. I personally keep an eye on MP and when its about to go (always save /panic Cure IV) throw up Repraisal and watch my TP climb.

I find Chivalry especially useful in Limbus and Sky etc where you either dont have time to rest or your in a long fight.
In Dyna I dont use it to much stuff dies before I get to do anything more than Flash and Voke anyway.

Happy tanking
First thing a PLD should merit

you gain tp from taking hits and shield blocks. i can say that I gain 300tp per every 3-6 battles 'when tanking'. i think this ability would be more useful then actually using a ws. i mean after all whats a measely little 500-700dmg per every 3-6 mobs that are pulled. crappy. the mp would be much more useful to keep hate from those that can cut loose for that dmg or more every battle. the 20min wait time is kind of an upset. but with the way PLDs get mp these days i'm sure I'll be able to cope with that. =) very much looking forward to this ability.

This skill is pretty awesome. Some of the arguments below say that PLD gains TP too slowly to make use of this. How wrong they are.

Shield block alone is crazy good TP. At level 75, you shouldn't be fighting IT mobs anyways, so you should definitely be hitting T to VT pretty good, even if you are geared for defense.

If after all else you aren't getting enough TP......get yourself a Joyeuse. My last merit party, I was the main SC partner with the SAM. Our WAR and THF did a great job, but they couldn't keep up with the TP of the SAM.

Also, a 20 minute recast isn't horrible either. Like most other PLD (i hope) I never really run out of MP. But bad things occasionally happen, so its good to know that if the poo does hit the fan, I can just spam out all my MP on the form of Cure IVs, then within 60 seconds have enough TP to completely replenish my MP. And you definitely shouldn't have to do that every 20 minutes, or else you've got bigger problems.

This also pwns while soloing tougher mobs. :)

TP->MP ratio
# Aug 14 2006 at 11:41 AM Rating: Decent
according to FFXIclopedia:

MP recovered = current TP * 1.45

so 100%TP= 145MP 200%TP = 290MP and 300%TP = 435MP

nice ability imo
pld too weak

Well, dex does effect accuracy. The koenig armor you are wearing is typically best worn only for HNM's or when you're really getting stomped. Have something else other than Koenig. Also, meriting sword will help you connect more hits. Don't forget our shield mastery trait either. +Shield will help you with that if you are doing an HNM.

im assuming since you have +67vit, you have koenig..... str- and dex- doesn't help with tp ;p. For plds without koenig, we can gain tp at a decent pace... but our ws's dmg tends to suck (Vs ITs Red lotusblade, and spirits within are our best ws's... vorpal blade if you're skilling).
So just because an ability seems useless to you, doesn't make it useless to others :)

Sure we miss alot, but consider that we are getting tp when we get hit as well as extra from shield blocking. Plus with the recast I think we can get 300 TP in 20mins. 300 MP is alot to just be given, think of how much extra cure spamming for hate that can happen.

(STR has nothing to do with acc btw >_<)
tp gain

the tp>mp ratio is more than 1:1... id say closer to 1tp > 1.3/1.4mp

recast time is 20 minutes though, meritable down to 15 minutes

good for regular built xp party setup, should be up by the end of every chain#5 and give the pld that extra boost he needs to keep going

note: this trait is alot more useful for the bigger mp pool races. Its kinda wasted on elvaan and especially galka (like me) since with 300tp you can get over 400mp back... and your tp goes to 0 when you use this no matter how much mp you needed

as a galka 75pld, my max mp is 143 plus gear, and i rarely wear any mp+ gear while exp'ing, and with about 1600hp a spirits within at 300tp sounds like a lot better investment (700+ damage)

best use for elvaan and galka is to wait till you used SW, get about 100 tp and pop Chivalry so you dont waste 200+ tp
Paladin boost

Seriously. :P Paladin got /way/ boosted with this update.
Chivalry + Auto-Refresh = Near unending MP.
Think about it...
More hits = more TP = more MP = more Cures = more hate.
Guardian + Sentinel + Iron Will = less damage + better Enmity + more curing = more hate.
Let them take damage and cast til either MP or HP or both is low, throw out an Invincible, then transfer TP to MP to HP, and continue. They may not even need to swing a weapon. Just have a Blm Poison the mob and sit back and watch. ~.^
