I looked before asking here, but I cannot find the answer unless I misread something. I was told to hold my keys to open gobbie chest because of an increase of good items, but can't find when it started/will start.

Don't save them. SP Key items do not change, only the daily special dial gets increased to key-like drops during most special dial campaigns.

The old wiki (not BG) has some solid info in the 'guides' section. BG forums have a TON of useful information, but it's strewn across 200+ pages.

Basically voucher 7 can spawn a bunch of different NM's, dependent on what runes you set. A specific set-up should result in the NM that has the sash in the loot pool, you just have to figure out which one and set it up.

I've been getting all the vouchers and runes and dickin' around with them lately. the only useful information I can give you that the above resources can't is, with Ilvl119 gear the best set-up (that I've found) for marble farming is voucher 9. they were super tough NMs back in the day, but you can whoop em' solo now and get 250 marbles a run with 6 CC points.

that's all I can tell ya.

you have an increased chance for equipment drop from the SP dial when the adoulin dial is present. so people aren't saying BETTER items, just a higher chance at equipment instead of a food item or a lizard skin. actually, your chances at a money drop (dyna D shards) would be lower during this campaign, but it all depends on what a guy is after.

not real accurate.
You only have increased rates on the SP dial when there is a campaign that says so. Sometimes that comes with Adoulin dial. Sometimes it comes with other free spins. It will literally say in the campaign when it does or wont when it doesn't.

No idea where it is right now since it's been like a year since I looked it up but SE has themselves put out that keys already have the equipment rate up built in

I'm having a problem with the Monthly Objectives for this month, my HTBF objective is still telling me Return to Delkfutt's Tower, (even though I did it last month), and when I go to clear it, I get no credit.

I thought I read elsewhere that Avatar fights are supposed to be this month, so I went and cleared one of those, and still got no credit.

Anyone else have this problem?

Yeah searching old dev notes aint the easiest since dev tracker only goes back so far. Luckily jp side has a super long thread that's literally just directly asking the devs questions which has most non update/FP related stuff in it to look thru since they actually answer over there

Ok so basically I was right, but only on the dial pull, whereas the keys are ALWAYS under the 'enhanced chance for equipment'. that is good to know, thanks.

Been away from the game along time. What job would you suggest focusing on?
(Quick details all jobs 90+ except Geo and Rune, RDM is currently most geared, would like to be able to gear myself in that sweet 119 gear solo as much as possible)

SCH will get you pretty much where you need to be. If you want to solo stuff.

And while it's not the BEST strat you can setup sch skillchains for almost anything that you can't solo.

Or you can just be another GEO/BARD/RUN and get everything the boring way.

I'm not for the boring way. Even though those are the 3 jobs I have the least previous experience with.
Smn seems fun not sure on the viability.
Beast seems like it always has solo but capable.
WHM seems to be lacking in the solo portion.
Sch might be a good option!

Right so I've done 30-35 voidwatch fights for 5 crystal petrifacts, all with cells but no staggers. Does staggering help with that, or am I going to have to do 1000+ fights to unlock voidwatcher goodness 2?

Yes your percentages will certainly effect your drop count and rates. Did mine during campaign so didn't have to stagger and yeah a couple of times I got 5 from a single fight since they drop really well then

Only takes 1 good muru run to get 36 honors. Douchegallu still casts death though. Totally ruined one run.
