Hey all! Looooong time no see. Haven't been on any sort of forum for almost a year... FFXI and work are mostly to blame.

Anyways, just a quick question for you FFXI'ers out there. I was wondering if any of you knew of either a good site or book that explains some of the hidden abilities of +1 items. For example, I've heard that the 'millionaire desk' gives +2 treasure hunter, and that worker gear has hidden effects that field gear doesn't. I used to think there wasn't a big deal until I started talking to several lvl 75s about it... and I guess it would make sense why, for example, a normal item might sell for 20-30k and it's +1 sells for 1 mil. I doubt people really need that extra +1 def or dmg that badly... only makes sense that there's something more to it.

Any thoughts or ideas?

It would make sense that +1 items would automatically have enhanced special effects, but the claims have been debunked taru be mostly just rumours. Although their database ish known not taru be the most accurate, you could go to Allakhazam (http://ffxi.allakhazam.com) and do an item lookup for the things you're curious about. Elemental staves (Wind Staff, Thunder Staff, Earth Staff etc.) are known taru have a hidden effect of +10% damage to spells of the same emelent, whereas their +1 versions give +15% additional damage.

Typo has heard about the millionaire desk, but I've also heard alot of people saying they've noticed no difference in TH effectiveness at all. "TH+1" and "Steal +1" are said to actually mean TH+1% and Steal +1% respectively, making them pretty much useless. I dunno. ":3
