Did a run with a couple friends. Full cleared the first few maps, and the only regular NM we got to spawn was a porxie. Barely saw any chests and only got the temporary items from them, no neck boxes.

Thanks for the info hya, I guess the other theory that was floating is that there are hidden objectives, might have to pay more attention in the future myself to make sure what kills the mob that drops the treasure coffer. Could be some vagary-lite shenanigans of "kill with some skillchain" or whatever.

Haven't seen anyone post about this. Got this notification after killing an Ice Elemental with a 27k Leaden Salute. A chest spawned at the same time this message appeared, and it contained the B Shard.

Edit: A bit later we were fighting Ice/Water Elementals, and got two more messages, increasing to 3/7. Two chests spawned, one contained the B Metal. It looked like the other just contained 100 gallmaufirtrty.

Cleared all of A, got the blue box from south trash for an old case for everyone, red box from leech NM that was up from the start for 500 random BS currency #19023930284, and the brown box from opening the door. 3/7 0/1 at the end. We had to backtrack to kill 2 mobs, unsure if respawns or if they fell off running to group up.

Never received the plate or the shard for A despite killing all the mobs there. Towards the end we started trying the bs procs /objectives from vagary to see if that might be a thing but the mobs died very fast and we weren't set up for it really.

I can attest that there are no timed respawns. We ended up running back to the very beginning after clearing everything up to the locked Gate B, and none of the mobs that we killed within the first 5mins were back. Based on the sheer number of mobs and the different variety of Elementals, I'd be willing to wager there is some sort of similar proc system to Vagary, especially given that someone above claims to have proc'd Leshonn.

We got into the M/N 6/7 area which had a bunch of elementals
Diaphanous Gadget #B was in the N-1 nook.

I can confirm mobs lose hate if you run far away enough, I mistakenly got 2 umbril aggro while solo drg with 3 dead trusts due to doom, legged as far as I could and they just deaggrod similar to ody segs runs.

One thing I can say about this event, and I'm very pleased with it. It looks like black mage will be very relevant again. The mechanics appear to be similar enough to vagary that I dubbed the event Vagary 2.0 with my friends. I'm pretty sure we'll end up with a lot of magic burst strategies, and there are so many elemental and mobs that just don't take physical damage well. It felt like blm would be as good in this event as it was in the original vagary.

Did you have the plate thing? also noticed any blue proc when doing the skillchain as someone mentioned a blue proc?

Yeah had a plate, I didn't notice any procs or anything. It didn't do anything threatening at all, strongest thing it hit me with did like 400dmg (Tearing Gust).

Also it dropped a sapphire

I don't see us bringing blm - Brd doing A.Edge, War cataclysm, 99k leadens, Nin was busting up some HELP I AM TRAPPED IN 2006 PLEASE SEND A TIME MACHINE numbers as well with hybrid WS. Wild fire was 2 shotting dark eles with skillchain.

Unless a boss needs it I.e ongo or something, It's safe to say other jobs just do a better job than blm here.

Just wanted to confirm that you get either a Case or a Sapphire from a Gate NM.

Good news - finally managed to log back in after almost 12 hours

Bad news - lost all my Gallimaufry, the earring and the sapphire I had picked up

My original entry KI was restored to Shiny so it just looks like I was never in the zone

If anyone's interested wiki has the updated page for earrings, https://www.bg-wiki.com/ffxi/Category:Sortie_Rewards if you have info to add on the ranges feel free, as I understand it's not likely to be grabbed in other ways but manually as Chiaia was explaining it's not something we can obtain easily.

Just noticed when my alt casted refresh on herself, the coffer status report 4/7 notification popped up, and a brown chest popped on top of her. Did not kill anything, so there is some kind of objective being completed, most likely buffs x numbers of time

Anyone that might be able to verify or noticed if the bosses have the mechanic of using to many of same WS? I didn't see any mentions but I had my damage just go to basically nothing. This was on Leshon. Went from 40k down gradually to almost 5k.

Earrings can be sold to NPCs apparently. In Mhaura it is showing for 3878. Could be good if don't have space/job/duplicate since it is only for 1 ear.

Went in to test objective conditions on some alts and managed to get 5/7 zone A objectives.



The 5 events that gave me objective completions were:
1) Fire Magic Burst kill on an Acuex (3rd magic burst kill until I got this objective).
2) Killed Leach NM (Obdella).
3) Opened the first A1 gate.
4) Another Fire Magic Burst kill on an Acuex (this was probably the 12th or higher magic burst kill that gave this objective).
5) Killed the last trash mob in zone A. Note, this was also a magic burst kill, so this data point is tainted as far as which one awarded the objective.

It's also worth noting that I did kill the zone A boss (Ghatjot), which did not award objective progress.

This seems the highest amount of objectives completed so far ty for sharing, I've only seen 3/7 as the highest up to now from various discords/forums/places. Seems maybe it's like vagary stacked towards magic again? I definitely only got 3/7 by full clearing the first map on drg so melee + sc only

Got a blue proc on boss B too, not sure what does it.

My guess is there's omen type objectives, but we can't see them , intended or not.

Solo guys prob have easier time doing it vs a grope.

Tried doing a bunch of magic burst, did nada.
