    Herald Gaiters What jobs priority?

    We are about to setup a lot order for the herald gaiters, its not easy...
    What jobs priority for you or your LS?

    WHM>SMN>BLM>MNK for me because :

    1. BLM: Kite (only after big nuke, kite 15% of the time) low HP more risk to die
    2. MNK: Kite (only after Chi, kite 15% of the time) High HP less risk to die
    3. SMN: stay in range of Kiter for Aerial Armor (so SMN in Tank Pt only) (90% of the time)
    4. WHM: stay in range of Kiter for Cure, Erase ect, Aerial Armor (90% of the time)

    PLD's Crimson Cuisses > Movement Speed +12% please check it ; ;

    thx for help

    imo none of them /really/ need a speed boost for their job to be done right.

    just let all the jobs there lot it. shrug.

    My LS give equal priority to WHM and BLM (for similar reasons as the ones you listed) followed by MNK and SMN with equal priority (considered not to be as useful to them)

    WHM or BLM > MNK or SMN

    Edit: We never have SMNs running around to Aerial Armor anyone. Our kiters/tanks are NINs and/or WAR/NINs so they can blink themselves.

    It's novelty, everyone who can equip this item wants it, but it's not really important at all to any job, since everyone has a better peice, but if you want to imagine for a moment that it was useful, I'd say :

    WHM on mobs like King Behe, or Chlevnik BCNM(tEeheeHEHeh), or Kirin(Kite style), could use this to catch up to crimson legging PLD. Or even for Dynamis, if the whm needs a boost to catch up to the THF.

    BLM You should be nuking when the Kited mob comes round your way, or you should be moving into it's future pathing, or resting. I dont see this Beneficial whatsoever unless it's for soloing / crafting.

    SMN i can see it useful if they're acting main healer, otherwise I see it as useful as BLM, the SMN who are BP'ing usually stand in one corner on kited mobs, when mob is there it's stunned/stopped so SMN can BP on, then they're resting.

    MNK, hmm I know Chi Blast has a big range, so it's not like they'll need to quickly run into range, but I guess for soloing or something, Im not too sure on how a monk can use this. The evasion is good for soloing as mnk/nin, dont see the speed beneficial outside pulling from trains in dynamis Unless they are made as a Kiter on mnk/war, then I guess it's beneficial.

    These shoes were most likley made for Soloing/Kiting

    Like I said, novelty Items, it's fun, but not "usefull", IMO let the people who earn it lot it.

    The problem is when the BLM takes hate in a kited battle (which is relatively easy against KB or his KS99 counterpart) it makes kiting/running away easier.

    strictly for HNMs: Whm

    Helpful on KB, KS99, Kirin, Vrtra, Jailers



    If Blm or Mnk pulls hate, they gonna die anyway, why bother prolonging there life. Smn Meh~

    They won't die if someone else nukes, provokes, or whatever and switches hate.

    Hmm I was thinking about that, but if you do sucessfully run away, you're still gonna have the hate, and many times the NM just comes right back after you the moment you do the slightest thing. But yes you do have a point there.

    If he comes back, you run away again

    Edit: But the point is, someone should get hate off of you eventually and wearing these makes it easier to continue to kite until that happens.

    I have them for WHM. They're nice for kited fights, but with cutting corners and such it's not all that hard to keep up with tanks. They probably enable me to land 1 extra cure out of 10 without seeing that damn 'out of range' message, especially with the nin hax boots tanks.

    I liken it to a Ridill. Not incredibly useful in most HNM set-ups but everyone wants one to play with. But, I do agree with some posters above, for HNMs WHM would get the best use out of them.

    Shutup kuno, everyone needs to run like hell if they're gonna die. Let ppl who would get hate and die first have priority:

    whm-blm: taru>mithra>hume>elvaan>galka

    Rdm I talk to that have crimson legs still complain that blm are hard to refresh/cure when they're running like crazy. And that's with them having movement+ and us without.

    I used to intentionally flash kirin to get hate sometimes since I couldn't get it any other way. I don't see how WHM get that much hate, I'll pop a benediction and nothing. Only way I see a WHM getting too much hate is if you have all the tanks die during something like kirin and whm is the only one left.
