From FFXI Wiki
- This ability allows you to take damage for a party member who currently has hate, as long as you are standing between them and the enemy.
- Cover cannot intercept AoE attacks or spells. Both the PLD and covered player will be hit.
- While cover can intercept ranged attacks and spells(occasionally), the cover target must be within melee range of the monster for attacks to be intercepted.
- Duration is based on dSTAT between user and target. The formula is something like:
- 15 + min(max(floor((user VIT + user MND - target VIT*2)/4),0),15)
- Duration is determined on use. Gear can then be removed.
- Duration can be further modified by PLD Job Points, up to +20 seconds.
- When a hit is intercepted the PLD gains a static +200 Cumulative Enmity, and the covered player's Cumulative Enmity is reduced by 10%.
- The hit must land. 0 dmg hits count. Misses don't count. Shadows/Anticipates/Parries untested.
- Volatile Enmity is untested.
- JA activation does not trigger this effect.
