I'm currently 0/11 on getting Resilient Mantle from MKE final fight. For anyone that doesn't know, this is a whm melee back piece that can be better than Belicose Mantle. Current max stats on it (as listed on wiki) are
-acc+3
-atk+14
-str+3
-subtle blow+1
-eva-3

Of course, odds of getting the cape were low enough, and odds of getting the right stats, and near the maximums were low too. It's also hard to find people who want to redo the fight over and over with you.

* Certain key items necessary to progress through the add-on scenarios are now available for purchase from the NPC Squintrox Dryeyes (Port Jeuno, G-8).
*These items will only be available to players for whom the following mission names are visible in the mission log for the corresponding scenario(s).
A Crystalline Prophecy -> A Crystalline Prophecy (Fin.)
A Moogle Kupo d'Etat -> A Moogle Kupo d'Etat (Fin.)
A Shantotto Ascension -> A Shantotto Ascension (Fin.)
* The maximum attribute values, as well as the chance of receiving high-attribute augments have been increased. The chances of receiving augmented items as a reward have also been raised.

-No need to redo mini-games every time!
-Better chance of getting good items!

I know there's at least a couple people who'll be as excited as me over this. lol >.>

Oh, and for the good WHM's, you can also get a HMP+2 (maybe more now) Cortege Cape from the fight. Would be nice, but Bellicose Mantle needs replaced badly!

Yeah, I just use Umbra Cape, because if there's any time my WHM is actually meleeing anything, I'm probably solo and therefore tanking too. >_>

Oh god yes, when I saw this update, that was my first thought. I've beaten that blasted moogle about 35-40 times now, and the best Resilient Mantle I've gotten so far is STR+1 Acc+1 Subtle Blow+2 (got the max on Subtle Blow woot!)

Can't wait to get a real nice one! ACP7 earrings too! Acc+3 earring {You can have this}

I don't think I'd use an acc+3 earring for anything if I'm /nin, which I am 99% of the time I have a club out.

Other mini-expansion item I really want is Aptus Earring with interrupt-3% to complete interrupt-102% set without using weapon/sub slots:

Head: Nashira Turban - interrupt-10% Haste+2%
Body: Goliard Saio - Haste+4%
Hands: Blessed+1 - Haste+6%
Legs: ASA Legs - Haste+3%
Feet: AF+1 - interrupt-25%
Neck: Willpower Torque - interrupt-5%
Waist: Druid's Rope - interrupt-10%
Back: Solitaire Cape - interrupt-8%
Ear1: Ethereal Earring - interrupt-8%
Ear2: Aptus Earring - interrupt-3%
Merits - interrupt-8%
Aquaveil - interrupt-25%

Totals: interrupt-102% haste+15% for Utsusemi: Ichi casts. I use 99% now and you'd be suprised how much of a difference that last 3% makes (yes, you actually need 102% for 100%)

Hmm, didn't realize you could get an interruption earring from that key, thanks for pointing it out. I'd like to try WHM tanking someday now that I have Yagrush, so that will certainly help! Still need a Nashira Turban, though... which sucks considering how many of those I passed back in the day.

I want to see Trial of the Magians add damage taken-10% to mythics. That+Genbu's = Earth staff+shield+crazy hate tool. Would be nice not having to swap back and forth while tanking and keep all the benefits of anything and more. xD

Did MKE final fight last night. First off, buying the key item is dumb because it costs not only 2k gil, but also 20 beastmen's seals... So after redoing minigames again and doing the fight, 1 person logged, one was only there to help. The other 4 of us all got capes! I was used to seeing 0-2 people out of 6 getting capes before. Our results were:

Cortege Cape: Resist-Paralyze+1 HMP+2 (mine, only good one)
Resilient Mantle: STR+2
Rugged Mantle: INT+2 Conserve-MP+2
Rugged Mantle: INT+2 Enmity-2

At least odds of getting a cape seem to have increased drastically!

I did it last night also and got a cape as well. Altius Mantle with Resist Silence +2, Pet:MAB+1. NPC'd it, but was glad to finally see a half-decent cape for the first time in over 20 runs. I'd say things are definitely looking up! Thank you SE!

I'm a PUP, so I've been in the same boat as melee WHMs for some time. Our only options better than Bellicose were Relic (Pantin Cape) and a Resilient Mantle with good augments. I spammed MKE final fight quite a bit, still have never received a Resilient Mantle.

Don't forget the other big back piece added in the March update - Aesir Mantle (reward from winning Odin Prime fight). It's all jobs, Atk+8 DA+1% (DA+2% on Darksday). It's better than Bellicose. It's way easier to get than hoping for lucky random reward and good augments on a Resilient Mantle.

I'll keep going to the MKE final fight any time I can (and I always keep a key item on me so I can join any random /sh groups I might see). But I've been doing that for a long time and no cool Atk+ mantle to show for it. I had the Aesir Mantle with fairly minimal effort within a week of the update.
