So in order to upgrade reforged relic to +2, you just need to ENTER the associated Dyna D zone. To upgrade to the +3, you need to beat the mid-boss, not the final boss, correct? Example, Sandy, you only need to beat Overlord's Tombstone and you can upgrade to +3?

Correct

Correct. It does need to be done per slot, per job, rather than once and done like Vagary bosses and Empyrean +1. Just in case you hadn't caught that part.

Missed this. This is good info too. I actually just beat the head vagary boss a couple days ago, so it's funny you said that.

Am I missing something about Maze Monger NM drops, or am I just unlucky? I've got the Lost and Found rune and as many monster strengthening runes active as I can fit, but I'm about 0/50 on Kerwen (with a bunch with multiple CC points for the 2nd chest) when most reports from back in the day seem to say NM drop rate is around 1/10 or so.

I'm wondering if I should switch to one of the other NMs that drop the Lycopodium Sash.

drop rates suck, but not usually that bad. I’d try 10-15 without L&F. full CC points help more than anything in my experience.

I saw videos of this guy on Pup letting his Automaton solo things. He always seems to summon Brygid. Is there a reason?

Brygid gives a little of Def, CHR and MDB and doesn't require you to engage. Is a small additional defense layer for the master.
That's all there is to it, afaik.

Trusts don't increase Geas Fete NMs' HP. If it's just you, they'll have the same HP as if there's 3 ppl; which is the minimum.

Regular mobs have static HP.

I was never 100% sure on that one, so I just took 2 brand new characters in to make sure.

Both got a rev team, both entered as a party on character 1's maze. We'll see if/which ones get points in an hour.

*update* Character 1 has 1 C.C Character 2 has 0 C.C.
to get points on a character, that character has to lead (any) maze

Trying to scheme up a good way to 3-box Kyou.

Main - Access to all DDs, tanks, GEO
Tiered in terms of their gear
Alt1 - Decked BRD, WHM, PUP, COR
Alt2 - Idris GEO, BRD, PUP, WHM, COR

Trusts get rekt, so my initial thought was PUP, BRD, DRG and sac the puppet. Using High Jump and Super Jump can force hate to be on it even if it died shortly before.

Biggest problem has been when getting to ~10% and the party keeps getting hammered with Meteors. Had best success when I went PUP, GEO, DRG, and mostly using Fade, but it was a scramble at 9% when repopping puppet and getting Meteored.

Anyone have a viable 3 box strat for it?


Does Migawari block it? If so I'd probably go NIN, WHM, BRD and just steamroll it.

Miga doesn't block the special move. It hits up to 14', though, so you can inch in without having to be on top of the mob. With the positioning down and an accession cure4 for cureskin, you can probably soak it with mages, luopan, and trust then use a setup like MNK GEO WHM.

edit: can't have accession and /smn, boo

Not sure I could manage keeping smn pet alive with all the Meteors anyway. I probably just need better control of my alts if I can get it to 10%. My GEO needs to be helping debuff it with paralyze to hopefully block a meteor. Admittedly I'm not the best at managing multiple characters in a chaos situation like if puppet dies. I have little to no faith in trusts staying alive. They're just such garbage without a campaign for them active.

Actually I wonder if I geared my PUP better, I could use ventriloquy to make sure it took the blast and that would free up two chars for buffing and healing. Time to check if PUP is on malignance lol

You summon the trusts on a mage, so they're only being hit by meteors and bravado. I'm sure PUP is possible, but needing a dedicated tank is kind of a detriment with only 3 chars.

Yeah, not thinking puppet tank, would plan on tanking it mostly as PUP master then doing a ventriloquy to dump all my hate before the big boom. Probably just use a RDM or WHM puppet. But summoning on my alt is a good idea too. Bringing WHM would help in keeping them alive better when the Meteors go off.

Two PUP can duo with SP last 10%. I know it’s down on the list of your best geared alt jobs but if you can gear them up with some pet DT Taeon quick with Ohtas I’m sure adding your main as GEO would offset any damage.

Played around with some PUP Master DD macros and gave it another go as PUP main DD, GEO and BRD. Used WHM puppet and ventriloquy'd when within 2% of its next Bravado. Killed with 20 mins left on the clock. Completely forgot about its en-effect on melee attacks but wasn't so bad with WHM puppet, trusts, and alts to remove them. Couple of annoying moments but nothing crazy.

How long will it take items like this to drop in price?
https://www.ffxiah.com/item/22298/aurgelmir-orb-1

Once everyone has the accessories they want I assume people will start getting the sellable items, but when is it likely that people will have the 4-5 items they want already?

13 days per item, call it 6 items to be sure before they want money

2 and a half months. Also consider that the effort isn't there. 14 days of dragon hunting for 18m (which will drop considerably by then) people aren't going to keep doing dragons for an hour a day, every day for a measly million gil per day.

I'm not doing dragons at all, even though it's worth 12 wyrm ash every 2 weeks. Simply not worth bothering.

(*)also consider that in those 3 months, more random ***might get added to wyrm ash crafts. wyrm ash could be used to get UNM+2... anything could happen. price could triple. price could half. Interest could skyrocket with more new craftables. totally no way to know.

When the game becomes overly involved with doing your dailies you're selling your soul though. This was an MMO, not a loot box and daily bonus mobile game, once.

Looks like they are undeliverable.
