Information Last Edited: 10/4/2019; 10:17pm EST
(Added group discount info)

ATTENTION: I Will NOT be adding 'clear time', as the majority of groups do not have it listed. Please do individual research on such matters, or ask the Group leaders.

Instead of searching for who has the cheapest Aeonics for sale, I gathered them from ffxiah sources.

*Disclaimer - I have no association with any of these organizations; I am not receiving subsides from any of them; participate at your own expense and do individual research please.

*I will update this guide as prices change and/or more information is discovered.
-Please inform me if this occurs and I do not notice via PM.

*I am not including currently discontinued Aeonic mercing groups in this list; only seemingly Active ones.

*If your group is active, but not listed, PM me and I will include it.

*I will update this guide/prices/information on at least a monthly basis in order to maintain correct information.

*Information in sorted in a way that is easy for a consumer to compare prices at; this means that some groups might offer individual deals that are not included, but maybe better than listed prices. Do your own Research before buying please.

*If a group only offers some variant of an 'All Drops Price' (ADP), and no 'no drops price', I will put the ADP as their rank/price.

*I will include disclaimers if an 'ADP' fails to include certain drops, such as Ores, Pulse Weapons, Bodies, etc.
-It is possible that a group might change this information at a later date, so please review their official page to confirm information before you purchase a clear.

(Work in Progress) *In terms of 'period of time discounts':
This will only be applied to Rank System 1 and official ranking will be unaffected. However I will add the discount to your slot marked clearly as a temporary discount and the new rank associated with the temporary discount.
Example) Normal Price: 150m; ///Discount Price: 40m, February 2019 ONLY/// (Bold) Temporary Rank With Discount: 1.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
-> Legend for info:
{Group Discount Offered = GDO}

[Unknown Information = UI]

(ALL Drops included [with clears] Price = ADP)

Period of Time Discounts = ///Discount Price: Price, Duration///
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Rank System 1:
Ranked Most Expensive -> Cheapest [Rank 1] by 'Full Clear' Price:
*If only one price is offered for Full Clear; that will be official rank.

Dreadnaught has an on-going 50% off Valentine's sale. This makes Dreadnaught the least expensive Aeonic merc listed @90m for a full clear at the moment. I believe All Drops Full Clear Price (ADP) lotted amongst the buyers from the last time I did an Aeonics run with them. Check with the leader, Shozokui.

Thank you for the information, I have contacted the seller and am awaiting confirmation before updating the guide.

Price isn't the only factor that matters when comparing groups, I'd definitely pay 125m to have a top tier group clear it in 3 hours over 100m for a group that takes multiple meets and 6+ hours.

(Castingshadows is advertising 7-8 hours over 2-3 nights, and Soiree has had people attesting to 3 or 4 hour clear in a recent thread.)

Not that I'm buying or selling them anyway, just throwing that out there.

I'm aware that 'quality of clears' is an issue. When I was looking through the pages it seems as though quite a few groups do not list such information, so I opted not to include it. But I might add it at a later time.

This current guide is just a foundation, and I will be adding more information to it as I get time to fill it in. In a perfect world, I would have multiple lists for: Claimed Time of completion, specific zone clear prices (Reisenjima, Woc, Kirin, etc), variables relating to feedback from previous buyers (satisfaction rating of sorts), etc.

After speaking to Shozokui, there is a miscommunication. The offer is: Buy an Aeonic, get 50% off on Dyna-D Clear.

I'm honestly surprised no one has thought to do this before. It makes it easier for buyers to know what they're getting, and for sellers to see their competition.

Yeah it dawned on me yesterday evening that It would be difficult to maintain specific zone information / that stuffy haha. I was attempting to find a way to quantify 'satisfaction', but I realized that since I was not first-hand reviewing the groups myself; then the results would be biased and inconclusive. I want the guide to remain as nonpartisan possible, so i'm thinking I will just keep it as is.

Didn't read the work mercing when I clicked on thread,
Maybe make another thread of clear comparisons.
Would be a fun read and insightful to others.

Just to note since we were posted, I have since moved to 72hr weeks at work and we have cut back on a lot of things, but aeonic clears are still good. Pretty much I would say about a majority of a day for a full run, but it's becoming much and much easier to complete. 3rd wave will be starting in about 2-3 weeks.

Also our server is empty, so camps are always free to do stuff. :D

Good post Senaki, good to see the differences in prices. We have yet to have an unhappy customer on Odin and to be honest we didn't even know what to charge when we started. We took over the job from some friends that left the server and that's what they were charging.

We charge 100mil for full run (not including drops) and have had zero complaints. Most people will buy a 3rd Grio or a Telos ear or a 2nd Val body, which we don't charge a whole lot for. We keep it this way cause it gives us the chance to also get a 2nd/3rd Val body when we need it.

I should change my OP cause it says we do it over 2-3 days, we haven't had one yet go to 3 sessions. It's typically 4-5 hrs for the first session then 2 hrs for the last. We have a lot of fun and always invite our customers into discord with us so they don't die from boredom lol.

GL to all the other merc's out there,

"As long as there is man, there will be violence."
"As long as there is violence, there will be war."
"And as long as there is war... we will always have a job."

Some of y'all stealthily changed info without bumping or nothin'; added changed info / new rank order above.

Edit:
Please do NOT refer to the comments of the 'guide' for prices, as some sellers have already adjusted the costs of services.

It will be interesting to see how far they go down as more people acquire them and/or other alternatives became available.

Are there any aeonic LS' on Phoenix? Not every server has an active aeonic shell. It is possible I missed them though. Could you please PM me / link their info?
