    Save The Queen "Cover"+1

    Alright, so I got Valor Surcoat and this gave me motivation to cover people more often. So I got my AF1 Head Gear, AF2 Body, some merits and I came across Save the Queen on AH. I bought it and can't really figure out what "Cover"+1 does...Doesnt lower recast timer and doesnt increase duration(unless my timing is off by 1 second and im not catching it). Anybody know exactly what this effect does?

    I'm no pld, but I noticed when I get covered, it only lasts a certain amount of hits, unless that's just coincidence.

    Well, the original duration without merits is 15 seconds. A mob can only usually get 3 normal attacks off in that span of time. Thats why it seems like it only lasts a certain amount of hits I think.

    Doesn't STQ just give a temporary accuracy bonus?

    With StQ, AF1 Head, and no Cover Merits; my Cover lasts for aprox. 17 seconds, depending on the mob, about 4 hits. I have had my StQ since I was 65 and macro'd it in with my AF1 Head, to me it was the best 100K I ever spent. It gave me that couple extra seconds for voke/flash to come back up.

    Also I heard that the Valor Surcoat turns the damage you take into HP and MP gained. Is this true?

    AF2 Body converts 25% of the damage you take to MP.(You still take full damage)

    Was doing Kirin after I got it. Covered a Great Whirlwind, took 1200 damage, and full MP. Its really useful for HNM imo.

    Oh also with Save The Queen latten effect active (During Cover), PLD can get the most ACC. Bonus in the game, I think. (Not counting Relic Weapons)

    Sucks that it only lasts for about 15~20 seconds though lol

    I don't think I've had to actually Cover someone since my exp pt that got me level 75.....lol.

    I don't have Valor Surcoat yet either though, and I know it's nice for the MP because some of our PLDs would cover the other PLDs in PT to get MP back.

    The Cover is extended by 10/15 seconds
    Acc is only active for the duration of Cover

    Dont know how the AF2 comes into play but with the Sword you get cover for a good 30 seconds or so
