Phew, managed to avoid a question mark in the title. Too bad I managed to fill this post with 6 of them ._.
Hello again Paladin forums, been a while since I came to you for advice.
I've been doing well, thanks for asking! My Paladin is really starting to beco-
Oh yeah, the questions. Ahem.
On what worth would you place this mantle? I've recently found myself sitting at a healthy 1mil and the most beneficial items I can purchase seem to be Cerberus Mantle (800k), Arhats Gi-pachi+1 (900k) or save for PCC (2mil) or Hauby+1 (2.5m).
Now, I don't have Valor Cape and can't see myself obtaining one... ever, so 3 ENM in a slot with currently no enmity is tempting, and will also benefit my ninja - as well as having some healthy DD stats to sidegrade boring old Amemet+1 - and an extra dose of fire resistance thrown in.
But then again, it is only 3enm, and only is a sidegrade to good old Amemet+1. So I don't know. Skip it until later? My friend is telling me that Settler's would be better for idling in anyway when Atonement tanking. Opinions on Settler's cape? Is the -att too much?
Already anticipating the "save for Haub+1". Unfortunately I make gil at such a slow rate, I won't be there for a long time ; ;.
Next question, while tanking Sky god's is it fine to go with the standard Atonement build, or will I not have a hope-in-hades of hitting Byakko? And how much HP should I aim to be having, I've never actually tanked or heard anybody talk about tanking these guys since 2005, where Byakko seemed to be the most ridiculously 1-shotting fiend around. Should I be worried?
The hardest thing I've tanked has been Proto-Ultima, and in hindsight that sounds like it should be a lot more difficult than sky god's but I don't really have much idea. I guess I'm just looking for an idea of how difficult they are to tank.
This is my gear by the way that I'm currently looking at for tanking them in:
Joyeuse, Koenig Shield, Lamia Kaman, Tiphia Sting
Wal. Turban, Parade Gorget/Chivalrous Chain, Suppa, Brutal
Haubergeon, Homam, Rajas, Blood Ring
Amemet mantle +1, Swift Belt, Homam, Homam
Thanks for the advice in advance, and sorry for the great big messy, probably uninteresting, questions.
