At this point in the game, I don't really have much to do. So I figure, why not make a hunt system kind of like FF12s to get people to try out random stuff and win some cool prizes. The challenges vary from D-tier to S-tier, and their rewards increase as such. They can vary from anything like "bring me x item" to "own these x, y, z item" or "kill x monster."

/tell Ramzus or Rawinput (both are me) to let me know you've finished a challenge and we can arrange a meeting. Please be patient if I'm in the middle of doing something.

Rules:

1. Only one winner per challenge

2. One person can win multiple challenges

3. First person to show me proof in game wins. If I'm not on/afk at the time you message me, I'll contact you when I'm back. If you're not online at the time I respond to you, I'll go to the next person on the list (assuming multiple completions.)

4. If a challenge expires, I may be willing to offer a fraction of the reward prize if you submit a late completion depending on the nature of the challenge (see: 50/50 salvage armor).

5. Challenge expiration is dependent on the difficulty, the easier it is, the faster it expires.

6. Once a challenge is completed, a new one will appear in its place after a certain period of time, which is as follows:

D, C Tier: Immediately
B: 3 days later
A: 1 week later
S: 3 weeks later

Regarding Kill challenges

NM kills will follow the following format:
Restrictions - Certain restrictions will be placed here, i.e. no temps/no meds/no certain job/sub job

Time Limit - pretty self-explanatory, there will either be a certain time limit to kill the monster, or you'll have all the time in the world (don't expect that to happen often)

Formal Attempts - Max # of attempts you can try it with me watching the fight. This means you can dry run as many as you want in your free time, it won't affect the challenge. But, if you blow it on the formal attempt, sux2bu lol!!

Other rules: Absolutely no outside buffs before an attempt, I will be in a party with you prior to fighting it to make sure you don't self buff, this includes anything from protect to bard songs. Also, if someone outside cures you during the attempt, you're disqualified, so you better use /blockaid. Oh yeah, and don't flee hack/pos, ***.

I kind of doubt anyone on Fenrir has 50/50, most of the hardcore players quit unfortunately.

~New Challenge~ (get it it's like RoE)

Challenge 4 (Feb 25th): 3 Sky Gem/Stone NM Weapons (e.g. Indra Katars)
Reward: 2,000,000G
Expires: March 3rd, 11:59 PM PST

also I added some rules/information since it wasn't really descriptive before.

Edit: Challenge 4 done, lol. Grats Thizzlethetaru. I'll post up a new challenge in a bit.

Edit 2:

Challenge 5 (Feb 25th): Obtain 5 old school low level R/E drops (e.g. Ochimusha Kote, Bounding Boots)
Reward: 5,000,000G
Expires: March 4th, 11:59PM PST

No Acey, I'm doing them because they're boring.

Bladen won challenge 5, he's kicking ***.
Items given: Bounding Boots, Vali's Bow, Trotter Boots, Empress Hairpin, Peacock Amulet

Challenge 6 (Feb 25th): Obtain all 3 SCNM helmets (e.g. Gnadbhod's Helm) and Nocturnus Mail + Nocturnus Helm
Reward: 12,000,000G
Expires: March 8th, 11:59PM PST

By the way, I'm open to feedback so feel free to let me know what i'm doing wrong or right. Sometimes I don't really remember how annoying something is to get so the effort:reward ratio may be more disproportionate than it should be (it's in the spirit of old ffxi anyway!)

Could also maybe do something along lines of Abysea Challenge, since Vtra, Tiamat etc are a time spawn getting the claim can be a pain in *** to begin with which could make the reward not worth it plus ramz may not be available during the time it pops to over see the battle. So abysea could be faster, less camping and more to the point of attempting the endurance challenge for Fights solo.
Challenge's: Solo x,y,z w/o Atma/Cruor buffs, brew or temps.

Pet jobs & pld restricted.

Since its force pop, Do a decent reward but..you may only attempt it once.
NMs of value Could be X amount of the 6 Cat's. 9 ZBs or Iron clads, and any misc *** NMs like Alfard, Apademik, Pantoraktor or even Shinryu.

Unsure how easy/tough these would be with iLV gear. (Its been long time since i abysea) I do know some where a pain in *** to begin with so gona say it will be a *** w/o abysea benefits that not everyone is capable of completing.

Restrictions could be say:
Apademik: job Restrictions (pld run smn bst pup)
Iron clad: job restrictions (smn bst pup blm sch rdm)

Another idea could be VW Nms. Atma temps varies depending on difficulty (no displacers allowed)

This idea may not be a good choice of challenge as it would involve ramz sitting in Aby or VW area watching a line of people attempt a challenge. Unless there was a application period to sign up and only X amount of people may sign up and qualify during the time/date.

So he would only have to go out with say 3 or 5 people max out of say 10 that applied. Could be 1st come 1st serve or make a /random out of so many people for who gets to attempt it and top 3 are accepted for the challenge.

I can tell you that S-tier is definitely going to involve grinding. I don't think killing a monster will ever be put in there unless I put some serious restrictions because everything is too easy with ilvl. I can really only think a few things I could put there.

Some things i could think of in this type of challenge. Level sync 75 solo Bune or Unger. Something like this was a challenge back in the day i can say as i use to do it on rdm and it could be hell at times even tho it was lolkiting. Or could create a aby challenge and make specific armor/weapon restrictions.

Ya I know, the endurance challenge of solo sounds good but it's really more of a pain Vs. Obtain X item which doesn't involve you over seeing people or any kind of sign up and these can be completed by anyone to retrieve the item 1st.
