Thanks Meridus, hope to see you around Cerberus also!

Added DD Grips to DD section, and Wivre Shield/+1 to XP 10-60 and Endgame Tanking.

Possibly adding Greatswords if this update today doesn't completely diminish it's usefullness.

Only thing I didn't see, is the food I use on end game events. HP keeps you alive on those hard hits.

Carbonara
HP +14% (Cap: 175 @ 1249 Base HP)
MP +10
Strength +4
Vitality +2
Intelligence -3
Attack +18% (Cap: 65 @ 361 Base Attack)
Store TP +6

As far as neck pc. if its mobs that does magic damage, I use Jewelled necklace. Other wise RR Gorget or Parade. I hope to have the defending ring one day, then my ear/rings will be compleate.

Very nice guide, congrats.......

Hey, Fur!!! I've been working out of this guide for the past week without realizing you were responsible for it. =P It's the most comprehensive guide I've seen on any FFXI job ever, by the way; thanks for all your hard work. Right now, bringing up my baby PLD for a voyager sallet run and just finished the cache-nez quest. ^^

Best,
Rowan

Also left off the damage -% list:

Palmerin Shield
kite shield def 20
damage taken -2% (this is magical and physical, like defending ring)


Granted by that level there are enmity shields and such... Still I think this item is very underrated.


And from the haste/fast cast list:

Warlock's Mantle
latent effect: enhances fast cast (same value as loquacious)
(/RDM to activate latent, comes from a BCNM 30)

Well I would like to thank Coda for doing up the guide.

I would also like thank everyone else for the other guides as well.

Honor Sword.
Viking Shield.
Happy Egg.
Valkries(sp) mask.
Medevil collar.
Drone/ Buckler earrings.
Brigadine (sp).
Elders gloves.
Woodsman/ Verner ring. I have electrum rings as well if i want the extra mp.
High breath mantel.
Tilt belt.
Kampf legs.
Elders sandles.

Food I am using the Tavsian(sp)Tacos.

Thanks for the great guide.

I am returning to FFXI after about a year and a couple months, and have decided to stick to one job this time on a new toon. I'm going PLD and my g/f is going RDM. This will help a lot as I level up.

Any tips for levelling or particular stats to focus on, and the reason why, with a static RDM?

As long as I'm still awake and thinking about it...

Sentinel Shield RareEx
[Sub] All Races
DEF:10 STR+3 Haste+1% Besieged: Haste+2%
LV 50 WAR RDM PLD BST SAM

Not a bad option for a DD shield, if you're looking to squeeze out every last drop of precious Haste, though if you're lucky the Besieged latent won't often be used...

Tariqah +1
[Sub] All Races
DEF:19 Accuracy+5 Evasion+5
LV 73 WAR WHM RDM THF PLD BST SAM

Another good option for a DD shield (don't -think- I saw it up there... >.>;;) especially if you -really- want to eat meat and you're struggling for acc.


Iron Ram Dastanas RareEx
[Hands] All Races
DEF:22 HP+20 Enmity+4 "Magic Def. Bonus"+2
Set: Increases all elemental resistances
LV 68 WAR PLD DRK

Iron Ram Sallet RareEx
[Head] All Races
DEF:29 HP+20 Enmity+5 "Magic Def. Bonus"+3
Set: Increases all elemental resistances
LV 68 WAR PLD DRK

Iron Ram Lance Rare
[Main] All Races
DPS: 11.51 DMG:70 Delay:365 HP+10 MP+10
Enhances "Resist Silence" effect
Damage taken -10%
LV 71 WAR PLD SAM DRG

The Iron Ram set pieces that have been released so far impress me to say the least. From what I've heard we can expect at least two more pieces to be released amid the last 3 ranks, at least. If they in any way reflect the pieces already out it will quite a significant addition. Hopefully the last pieces will share the Set bonus, which would put the elemental def of the set around 20, combined already with lots of Enmity and MDB and HP (albeit lower def than some contemporary endgame pieces, you can't have it all).

Hey NCCoda,

Figured you probably want to add the two new Iron Ram pieces to the Magic Defense Bonus gear. The items and levels are:

68: Iron Ram Hose (MDB +4)
68: Iron Ram Greaves (MDB +3)

Also, both pieces will add an additional +10 resist to all elements when worn with the other two Iron Ram pieces (Sallet and Dastanas).

In addition, all the pieces are great for enmity and kiting gear, so consider adding them both to the endgame tanking gear and 60-75 tanking gear.

Cheers!

Well I just want to Thank NCCODA for doing this.

I have now all my Tanking gear for 73 that I can obtain, at this point without having CoP open and other areas.

I am close to having my DD gear but I see I should have the Sipahi stuff for WS, so I will have to work on that, and some other items as well.

And finally Hmp and +HP gear I still need to work on to cut down on kneeling time and for a kick *** Spirits Within (currently before 73 my top end was 721 with AF and Iron Ram Sallet and Dastana's and Insomina Earring)

I am also close to having Max Enmity as well, just need Harmonia's Torque and Mermaids ring to top it off. (Wivre shield still to come but but that is much later for now)

I still need to get a bunch of AGI gear for skill-ups that I am lacking, but I am thinking that the Sipahi gear will help in that matter, will have to check to see what else is out there.

Also I think I am close to the Max VIT can someone let me know, my current gear has me sitting at 101 VIT, I have heard that having 110 in VIT is the mark to hit.

Again thank you NCCODA for the time and effort you put into this.

/salute

Thanks for the kind replies.

I've added Aurum and Iron Ram gear, and a couple random weapons.
I also deleted a few items that are incredibly outdated and have very easy to obtain/cheap to buy upgrades, making them completely obsolete.

I still need to add in some Einherjar drops and some more Zeni/Sandworm items.

If anyone has a list compiled of the Zeni/WOTG gear, toss me the link please.
I'll try to get everything updated in the next few weeks.

I'll also put up specific Fire Earth and Ice setups, since those are the most commonly used.

lving 58-59 on Puks in Wajoram Woodlands i was using Wivre shield and i think i lost hate... twice, with our THF constantly SATAing whoever was standing behind the mob(Not me, i was never the SATA target). But before the THF showed up i was using R.K. Army shield better stats. I had +15-16 ENMity with most AF pieces(no body), High breath mantle, and wivre.

Only necissary if you feel you need to let the THF SATA whoever, or you suck at holding hate and are rich as ****. Anyone who says you are gimp without it is a fcktard.

I think only Elvaan\Galka would have to worry about using smaller shields for skillups @ this level, most everything that would, stays capped when you get here(swrd, eva, shld, divine) although my healing magic is about 60 under cap right now, i need to get my PL on >.>

17,400 TNL woohoo!

Absolutely, I'd highly recommend full DD setup for a Greater merit PT.
I know that some PLDs have done more traditional tanking against them, personally I never had a problem in a DD setup.

looks like a great guide will definitely use it to check my gear against it but just one thing I can think of is missing Raja Ring for DD sattva ring is great when buffing HP or Vit but for DD raja is better

Ok, I'm not about to get into the debate of turtle vs. DD-build.
Didn't want to make a new thread either, and this seems the most appropriate place to ask.

I'm just looking for some recommendations for what to pick up as I grind to 75.
Currently 56PLD, have full AF.

Wearing:
Wise Wizard's Anelace/Tac. Mag. Espadon, RK Shield. Fortune Egg
Fourth Armet, Cuirass, Cuisses, AF boots+gloves.
Spike Earrings, Woodsman/Jaeger, Swift/Life/Warrior+1 Belt
High Breath/Gaia Mantle, Spike Neck/Parade Gorget

Have:
Haubergeon, IR Shield, Chiv. Chain. Joytoy already.

Questions:
Is Gluttony really -that- important until Mac.+1?
What AF pieces should I glue to my body until 75, other than boots?
RK Chain or Fourth Cuirass?
