This is quite possibly one of the best early game pieces for PLD that absolutely no one seems to have ever heard of and lasts for a really long time. Enmity+2 isn't the most ever, but it DOES help, and this is a really early piece. The NM's a piece of cake, as well--if you can ever find him up. --Alydra 09:01, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
This is a good piece for PLD period. Its the fact that the NM spawn's like an HNM that people don't have it. The 21 hour timer can make it difficult to find him up. The NM also isn't that easy if you have tonberry hate, so remember to not underestimate him. I took 400 damage from everyones grudge with prot, phalanx, and stoneskin up as Pld/Rdm (Buff's were fresh). Meaning it would have done close to 700 damage to me with out them, so just be wary.
This cape isn't as useful as it looks. High Breath Mantle is dirt cheap and gives a HP boost and Enmity+5. Unless you're in a situation where you can benefit from the magic damage -5%, High Breath Mantle wins hands down. --Darkguru 22:41, May 13, 2010 (UTC)
Magic Damage Taken
Does the Magic Damage Taken -5% work in abyssea? --Chaosprime 08:51, February 2, 2011 (UTC)
With the "in areas outside own nation's control" wording being like some of the 3 original nation's Conquest Points items, I'm guessing the "magic damage taken" aspect only works in areas subject to Conquest Points.--Snorglepuss (talk) 13:54, August 7, 2017 (UTC)
