    Paladin and damage reduction

    I haven't found any concrete evidence for or against a full damage reduction set up. Bassically all the darksteel set, earth and jelly. If you get all +1 its -38%. Anyone try this? I dont think anyone on my server basically b/c the darksteel set is hard to find especially the +1.

    Tx in advance.

    Btw taru pld, so I think I can hold hate w/ mp. Currenlty lvl 51.

    I would say AF til you get cursed and adaman gear. And always carry a earth or terra staff with. taru plds should be more concerned with getting HP high. so cassie earring/pegion earring/phiscal earrings are a good idea. BBQ ring is a much, except when fighting fire based mobs. Also if you can afford it make sure you get the creek gear @ 62. just my "2cents"

    Get a sand mantle and tank lizards with it. :Q

    MNK can get something like -62% total physical damage if you don't care about other stats.

    I think Bard can get like -82% in yellow HP or something

    There's a elvaan BRD in our ls that almost takes the same damage as I do, it's ridiculous. Took about 7 hits from Fafnir before he died. In ballista I meleed him for like 20.

    lmao... our BRD's get shanked constantly on Faf/Nid. one curaga2 after spamming elegy/threnrodies from someone with +900 CHR seems to get it's attention.

    Yes I know CHR supposedly doesn't affect it, so maybe it's the lack of -enmity a WHM may have.

    Ballad I + II, Prelude, 2 Etudes, Random Cures builds up hate quicker than most people thing. Then you throw in Elegy and Threnody. And hasn't it be said that CHR is the rate at which you lose hate? BRDs don't need really any equipment at level 75 to debuff Fafnir, Nidhogg is another matter which you need a little bit of extra CHR. Usually after a Wing Spam where the BRD if you have a Melee PT with Melee with no /whm /rdm sub, and tossing a Curaga I or II will pull hate with ease seeing how their existing hate is constant.

    I'm sorry, but this "CHR = HATE" is fucking bullshit.

    Why would SE give thf's such a pitiful CHR stat when their role is HATE MANAGEMENT ??

    CHR also effects rate at which hate is lost. Eat a Jack-o-lantern(-10CHR), use a couple vokes, and let someonecure you wil you get hit. You'll lose hate much faster when you get hit due to the -CHR10. When I PT with a NIN that uses Jacks, I constantly get hate when they lose shadows.
