Been looking all over wiki and can't find them for the life of me, but I'm certain I saw someone with a pair of earrings in whitegate. They both had 4 +ele stats and together gave 8AGI set bonus...

Anyone know what they're called or where they can be found?

Those would be

http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Wilhelm's_Earring

and

http://wiki.ffxiclopedia.org/wiki/Altdorf%27s_Earring


Just a heads up. These earrings have an awful drop rate and multiple people camping them.

They aren't really an improvement over dual str earrings for archery as far as max damage goes. They're better for marks, but personally not enough for me to go kill each NM three dozen times to get them.

Fantastic, thanks.

Sure they may be the same/worse than two triumphs, but I can honestly say there is no way I'm spending the best part of 2mil on them.

The droprate is beyond bad, I spend the better part of the past Saturday logging in the claim every Goaftrap pop from 8am to midnight, went 0/11 with and without TH3/4. Overall between the two I'm easily 0/30+.

Depending on your ability to make money I'd reconsider that statement. It certainly is possible to make 2mil way before these things drop.

Ya, they're basically similar to Lava's and Kusha's rings having horrible drop rates and only being a sidegrade to a 7 accuracy ring.

If you use a bow it definitely doesn't seem worth the effort.

If you were balls to the walls about marks then maybe.

Ya, drop rates are comparable to the kusha/lava. I went 1 for 9 on one, 1 for 31 on the other (TH2+1) which is right about what the drop rate is. Those are just the number of times I got the claim, it does not include all the times the NM popped and someone else claimed it.

So if you want to spend time to get 40ish claims on the two mobs (on average what it will take) rather than spend 2M, I won't dissuade you but you should definitely realize what you're getting yourself into. :)

You can also get lucky--talked to a guy last night who went 1 for 3 on both of them....and I talked to someone the week before that was 1 for 39 and 1 for 53. ><

As it happens I'm probably gonna stick with my gimpy suppa+novia as Rng hardly comes out to play if the drop rate is really that bad. Or maybe novia/brutal after I get rose strap for 6hit with fay bow.

I am really starting to wonder if your current job has an effect on the drop rates, due to several friends and myself camping these and Kusha/lava. combined something like 120+ kills on all 4 NM's and only 1 drop, however, a bst friend in my shell has helped 3 people get both kusha and lava and gotten them to drop within 3 kills each.

I know how its supposed to work out with drops rates, but this definately makes me curious because he has gotten almost all of the new rings/earrings while out as bst, and most people i know camping them with Th2/3/4 arent getting them.

I like these earrings, and the droprate wasn't so bad. 1/1 on the first, 1/20 on the second.

My ranger has yet to hit 75 (73 atm), and most of my gil is invested in THF; 2x triumph might be better but the money just isn't there for now.

I know the math behind it, and 8 AGI + 1 racc 1 rtk beats out my Suppa/Hollow combo that was originally in use, and prevents me from having to buy 2x triumph

(leaving the door open to buy other things, like, oh, ammo. I don't know how you guys do it, btw. I have to use the best, and I cant help but see $$$ every time i fire ;) maybe it's the thf in me)

In conclusion, these earrings will not replace 2x triumph if you have them, but worth the time if you're looking for a great, powerful alternative.
