Is there any particular campaign when you should use up your SP Gobbie Keys? I swear I remember at least one campaign where the gobbie keys would have a better chance of spitting out equipment. That can be a thing, right?

No, SP keys are always the same. You're probably thinking of the campaigns that make the 50 point box give the same quality as SP keys.

What's the best route for Ancient Beastcoins? IIRC, it was either Western Temenos or NW Apollyon.

I always remember doing NW Apollyon.

NW and NE apollyon are both pretty quick and provide generous amount of beastcoins, i wouldn't count on any temenos beating them (though the metal chip one might, if you get the chip for free from another run)

NW was popular at 75 because you could solo/duo it easily, but I believe NE gives slightly more coins and is trivial nowadays

Eastern Temenos is ~75 coins per 10 minute run (trade in the scarlet chip for another 5). No need to take any time chests anymore, so it is pretty good.

On the topic of trusts, I was chatting with some people about Naja UC the other day and how to try and make use of her unique weaponskills Peacebreaker (Reverb/Distortion) and Justicebreaker (Grav/Darkness), both with additional effect of -50% def and -50% mdef

On the plus side, Naja will only use one weaponskill depending on what she's equipped with when summoned, so she can be cycled out until you've locked in the one you want. On the down side, the main thing holding her back is the accuracy of the additional effect from the weaponskills landing

So we were trying to brainstorm a bit to think of all the ways to try and make it more reliable:

- summon her in a party of 5 so she's at level 124 with more macc
- make sure she's haste capped and SAM roll to WS frequently (she has a base of 200 TP/hit)
- Frazzle III, Langour, Focus, appropriate threnody (This thread from 2017 has a post referencing BLUs Enervation spell which "is dark resist but the mdb down is thunder and the def down is wind." No clue how accurate that is but could be relevant?)
- Marine stewpot

I'm not really sure which of these things would work, but I do know that anyone with a hybrid WS would love that -50% def and mdef. Not sure how it stacks with / overwrites other def down effects, for that matter. But if it were possible to get her to like a 50% or even 33% land rate, I feel like she'd be contributing more than a lot of people I've played with lol

Is there any way to stop avatars from attacking mobs when summoned when the summoner has hate? Super annoying during Odyssey NM when pets wake up slept adds.

Adoulin dial gives a better chance at equipment from SP dial, and keys are just a cost free roll of the SP dial aren't they? They count for the deeds objective.

Normal:
SP Dial = Normal Pool
SP Keys = Good Pool

During Campaign:
SP Dial = Good Pool
SP Keys = Good Pool

When Monberaux does Mix: Samson's Strength or a SMN does Fenrir's Ecliptic Growl, either all those buff icons going up or down at the same time lags the crap out of me to the point I think my game is going to freeze.

The acuex in Sortie also have that TP move that gives you all the buffs down, has the same lag effect.

Is it possible to remedy this at all? I know others who say this happens to them as well.

I see this happen too, if I put on a pile of buffs and level sync, the game totally freezes (0 fps) for a second while it updates those icons.

The only kind of thing I can think of is lowering the demand on the hardware/upgrading? dgvoodoo? generic icons instead of xiview?

Maybe I’ll try testing with the old icons and see if it still happens. I’ve upgraded many parts on my pc over the last few years and this continuously happens. (I can’t imagine it’s hardware related and I don’t play on a laptop)

No. It's completely the same, you just sleep the locus.

More effort.

Or maybe round them up with a second invulnerable pld and hold them the entire time.

It's not completely the same. You kill much less Apex and need to hold Locus. You can also in theory have people be angry at you for holding Locus and not killing them (possibly report you?), unless you will agree they can just take them off you and kill them on your spot, but it might be a problem if there is a language barrier.

I'm looking for one of those interviews with FFXI team with the question about something related to someone paying them millions of money to remake the game. If I remember correctly, they said they would gladly do that. Does anyone have that source?

Is there a chat filter that will allow me to see when other player's enemy targetted debuffs drop?

things like paralysis wearing off on an enemy that was originally cast by another player
