Wiki told me where you can find the new spells. Protect V and Shell V are available in Rabao, for about 100k a piece. Ouch. I'm gonna get buffer tomorrow (I just dinged 76 and used them), then farm my tail off.
As for tests. Mind, I have no real way of testing the MAB on shell V!
If someone has a way to do that, I'm very interested, as I have full merits in shellra V. Also merit wise; I only put in enough merits to UNLOCK protectra V, so you have a reference. (If Square made it so everyone gets full merited shell V without working for it, I'm prolly gonna be a little bit mad...)
How this was done; I basically just stood in windy, no buffs on. (Was subbing /blm at the time, that's my screw around/run around sub anyway. If I want to do serious stuff, it's usually /sch at this time, but I do have /rdm leveled since I also have 75 blm, if that turns out better I may not just use it on blm. got all my sub leveling done very early so I'm cool.) Checked defense via looking at my own gear, then cast prot V on me, checked gear again and noted the defense number, then canceled it (just to make sure it was clean). Then I cast Protectra V from the menu and checked again. I'll double check my alla profile, I think that's current gear. If not, check my FFXI AH profile
, tho it's missing my teiwaz. If you see SMN gear on the FFXI AH profile, blame the fact that they are slow to update and be patient. (I used smn to get the darned blasted last merit point to break the cap. So I've been summoner most of the day, either chasing bombs or trying to FoV (that was a bust) or teaming with a crazy friend in sea to finally bust it and get my level)
Base defense on me(normal standing gear): Def 240
With Prot V: 300
With Protectra V:300
I hope that helps. If people wish to see screens (Well, it's a simple test) I'll redo this.
[Edit] Ok, corrected my Alla profile that I have linked in my sig; it's correct except for the missing Teiwaz. Pretend you see one there; I'm taking a screen and will submit it. Edited, Jun 22nd 2010 11:45pm by maryadavies Edited, Jun 22nd 2010 11:54pm by maryadavies
