    Ah, I fell into that trap too myself when I first arrived there - the only way I managed to escape was by shouting out in Lower Jeuno for someone to tele me back to Tahrongi Canyon (and offering gil in return). Usually if you shout requesting a tele a WHM will usually quickly respond and help you out.

    There is another, cheaper way however - if you have at least 50 tabs saved up, simply visit one of the training manuals at the entrance to Jeuno in one of the surrounding zones (Sauromuge Champaign/Rolanberry Fields/Batallia Downs), select 'training support, and 'Repertration'. For 50 tabs, this is an instant warp back to your home nation in your case, Port Windurst, making it a lot easier (when I first started Fields of Valor didn't exist so I had to do it the hard way above ).

    However, it is probably worth your while to stick at the chocobo quest. I know it is very time consuming, but don't despair, it is easier than it appears. All you have to do is attempt to feed the chocobo four times before it will finally eat (and you can only attempt to feed it once a Vana'diel day - one hour of real time). On the fourth attempt, it will finally eat. Then feed it another three times (it will eat each time) in order to complete the quest. At the end of it, Brutus the owner of the Chocobo stable will give you your chocobo license, which allows you to rent a chocobo from any stable or handler, making travel much easier.

    As for where to solo at level 20, I'd suggest sticking with either Valkurm Dunes or Buburimu Peninsula to about level 28ish, and then you could try the bats in the Qufim tunnel (don't forget to purchase support options like Reraise if you have tabs, as they help a lot).

    Ahhh thank you, that's a relief. Qufim was scary as I couldn't even hit any mobs!

    I got my chocobo license and am now back in Buburimu Peninsula where I feel more at home

    At work at the moment but will be online when I get home around 5 AEST while kicking back with a beer or three

    Okay so looks like the Maze of Shakhrami is going to give me more grief than I thought. I got lost in there and the mobs (other than the goblins and bats are "seem tough".

    May need assistance or an escort whenever you have the time.

    I'm so sorry I haven't been online at all the past few days Purr - real life has kind of interrupted my in game schedule. I should be able to help you now though if you still need mission help.

    Thanks. I really hope everything's ok, and as I explained to Death's Head there's no rush in getting the missions done.

    I joined another Linkshell last night with a friend I've made and have been leveling with him almost every night. He assisted me in getting the keys for the quest to gain access to Kazham, so need to finish that in Jeuno today. Also completed the first Chains of Promathia mission and the cut scenes were awesome!

    Currently 34 MNK / 12 WAR. Given up on leveling my warrior because I am STILL waiting for my copy of Wings of the Goddess to arrive so I can level DNC... Seems to be taking forever, damn you Amazon.

    Hope to see you ingame soon. ^^

    You'll need to level WAR though, if you intend to keep leveling MNK until you get Wings of the Goddess and unlock DNC (FTR, SAM/DNC is a killer combo. You can solo so much with just that job combo there.) Remember, you do need to level your subjob to 50, to keep it up to date with your main job.

    MNK/WAR is more or less the standard combo, as you get extra STR from WAR as well as access to some Job Abilities WAR have. Another good combo is MNK/THF (one I use myself), which can deal out some substantial punishment.

    Congratulations getting past the first Chains of Promathia Mission. CoP is considerably easier now that SE has raised the level cap in former level restricted areas. The Promyvion runs, once nightmarish, now are quite easy to do. If you ever need any help, drop me a /tell if I'm ingame and I'll see if I can come assist with others.

    Congratulations, now need to go camp this guy (well you don't need to, but it is recommended):


    to get these:
    .

    For Monks, Samurai and Ninja, these are invaluable at low levels and even some continue to wear them in higher levels (Mainly Monks as there are slightly better gloves for Samurai and Ninja (via consuming food for their different effects)). The drop rate though is quite low, something like 4.8%, so it may take a few campings, but hopefully you'll get them quicker than I did (1 drop out of 92 campings). You'll need to get some higher levels to assist though, as he is a level 36 Notorious Monster.

    You may also want to consider camping this NM as well:


    for:
    .

    Another MNK/SAM/NIN only piece of gear, but also is worth while having, if only for the haste bonus.

    The spawning conditions for Mee Deggi the Punisher:

    * Spawns around (H-8),(I-8) on Map 7 of Castle Oztroja anywhere on the ground floor. (The North courtyard)
    * Spawn window opens up after 50 minutes, but has taken up to about 6 hours to spawn.
    * The placeholder is either a Yagudo Drummer or Yagudo Interrogator.
    * Mee Deggi the Punisher can pop at any time before the 12 minute cooldown for the Placeholder is up. See: Quu Domi the Gallant
    * With the above being said. It is believed that Mee Deggi the Punisher can pop in 1 minute intervals after the death of his placeholder. (IE: PH ToD: 3:00:00PM. Pop time: 3:01:00; 3:02:00... ect) all the way up to the 12 minute respawn.
    * Uses Hundred Fists.
    * Will either drop Impact Knuckles or Ochimusha Kote, but not both. Because of this, it is possible Treasure Hunter has no effect.

    For Quu Domi the Gallant:

    * Lottery spawn at (H-7) and (H-8) in the courtyard, on map 6 (South Courtyard) from the Yagudo Herald and Yagudo Oracle, every 60+ minutes however because it is a lottery spawn, it can take significantly longer.

    * Placeholder is either a Yagudo Herald or a Yagudo Oracle.
    * Placeholder can be found by pulling every Yagudo Herald and Yagudo Oracle to the top of the Center platform, and using Hide. The one that does not despawn is the current placeholder. Yagudo's Elemental will not be fooled by Hide, and must be killed prior to activating the Job Ability for this method to work.
    * After the placeholder's death, a window opens where Quu Domi the Gallant can spawn anywhere in the room, including the center platform until the 12 minute cool-down is up. However he can spawn when the placeholder was due to (12 minutes exactly).

    * When using Wide Scan, the order of the list is:

    * Cutter
    * Cutter
    * Cutter
    * Cutter
    * Cutter
    * Yagudo Drummer
    * Yagudo Interrogator
    * Yagudo Herald/Yagudo Oracle
    * Quu Domi the Gallant
    * Yagudo Conquistador

    * The Yagudo Herald/Yagudo Oracle is the placeholder, and it can spawn anywhere in the room.
    * Note the placeholder will spawn as either the Yagudo Herald OR the Yagudo Oracle. Both cannot spawn simutaniously.
    * Will drop either a Strider Sword or Sarutobi Kyahan, though many players claim Treasure Hunter does not affect the drop rate, there is no evidence to support this claim.
    * Uses Mijin Gakure, however if whoever was fighting Quu Domi the Gallant is defeated, he will not use it again for at-least another 2 hours (Earth Time).
    * Soloable by most jobs level 50, by many significantly earlier.

    Thanks for the help DH, you are a legend. I wish to see you in game more often too!

    Also I cannot thank you and Ericca enough for helping me unlock SAM. All these side quests are really secretive and without an external FAQ or the help of the Linkshell, I'd be completely lost.

    I'm not at home at the moment, but I have tomorrow off and will definitely get the SAM sword from South Gustaberg as my sword DEFINITELY needs an upgrade and I really don't have the gil to be spending at the Auction House in Jeuno. And I should be able to solo the NM with my monk easily, which is good news.

    In regards to the above post; doesn't look like I'll be able to solo them, and I also have NO idea how to get to Castle Oztroja, but will try and find out from people once I'm in game.

    See you in Vana'Diel soon!

    Also CC hurry up and get in game...! We're on Quetzacoatl server and you can message me and I'll give you a hand with anything you need (and what I know), as I'm sure Death's Head and Enkidoh will also be happy to help, as they have with me. ^^


    Also...my copy of {Wings of the Goddess} STILL hasn't arrived. I am furious. It was meant to come mid October....Damn you Australia Post! >:

    Keep that sword Gilgamesh gave you, as you'll need it for your Artifact Weapon quest, when you hit 40 SAM.

    Carnero will be easy to kill for your MNK, as it's a NM in a starting area, and they are usually around level 10-15 or so. That Great Katana it drops IS worth it trust me.

    When you get to Rank 4, you need to head to Castle Oztroja for part of it. It's located in Meriphataud Mountains, so next time you're ingame I can show you it's location

    Don't trust Australia Post. I've lost many packages due to the ineptitude of their workers.

    I cannot get to Rank 4 currently because of that blasted Three Kingdoms quest. Really need to organise a group for that.

    We'll try to get a group together to do that mission run for you this weekend. A BLM to sleep one of the monsters while we focus on the other, kill it, then move on to the other. A SAM to deal with the Ahriman monster (It's a demon, and SAM's have attack bonuses for killing demon) and a DRG to take on the Dragon (DRG's, like SAM, have a bonus or attacking Dragons). Fortunately, I know a BLM and a DRG I can ask (I'll be there as SAM) to come along to help.

    Okay I'm really sorry to the players of Jing Zen, but I have decided to stop playing. Several reasons behind this include: Grind based gameplay, not having the time the game demands, like to be able to solo easily.

    Don't get me wrong I enjoyed it and I may return. But for now, I simply couldn't bring myself to continue the grind.

    Sorry to see you leave so soon Purrr. I can understand your reasons though, as I've felt like that myself at times. Hope you do come back at a later date though.

    With Cataclysm boring me to tears lately, I've been thinking a lot about FFXI. ;-;

    Come back to Vana'diel Purr! We miss you!

    Incidentally, if you do come back, DH and I could probably get you a pearl for another ls, as JingZen is sadly pretty much defunct now (this new one has tons of members).

    Aw thanks Enki! This makes me smile.

    Yeah the WoW guild I'm in isn't really going anywhere in regards to endgame progression at the moment and I feel like I've already done the 80-85 Cataclysm content to death.

    I have been spending a lot of time thinking about coming back to FFXI, only if I did I would buy the US version of the Ultimate Collection. And as much as I adored being Ericca's 'football' I would roll a Hume, and possibly start in Bastok. And I would make it past level 36....as I really want to see all the great content FFXI has to offer!

    It's quite expensive to get your old Content ID reactivated, so I would be starting from scratch. And I really do miss you guys, and all the help you gave me. I also made a few friends outside of JingZen that I met on my travels and I miss them too. FFXI's community is SO much better than WoW's (excluding the RL friends I play WoW with, of course).

    Hmm, let me think about it some more. I also need to take into consideration that I still have WoW time until 23rd of February....so it would be wise to at least make the most of that.

    Update:

    Gave in and just purchased The Ultimate Collection which is downloading as I type this. Considering the sluggish download speed, the installation, registration and patching process I probably won't be able to play until later tomorrow.

    When I finally get online I will send a friend request to Enkidoh and DH (Ariellyanna from memory?) ...hope to see you guys on Quetzalcoatl again soon!

    See you in Vana'diel then!

    Okay, after a monumental install and PlayOnline registration I am finally patching.

    My PlayOnline name is Purrr. Please send me a friend request as I tried searching for you but to no avail.

    Hmmm, that's odd.

    I don't know why a Friend Request to me would bounce - my PoL status is set for Online (when I'm logged in). Unless, it's because my PlayOnline account is linked with a Square Enix Account (that I created to play FFXIV but never used - I linked them together to register a Security Token that came with my copy of FFXIV, because doing so allows you to use something called a 'Mog Satchel' in FFXI that greatly increases item storage space), and the SE account's own Friend List (which is empty for me) might be somehow 'invalidating' any PoL friend requests sent to me.

    I'll try sending you one instead in PoL Purrr - I'm really sorry that it didn't work for you. The only other thing I could suggest is wait til you get in game and create your character, and try sending me the Friend Request in FFXI instead - that usually works for me.

    Not sure what happened but I searched PoL 'Enkidoh' and 'Arielyanna' and it came up 'no match found'.

    It will still be a very long time until I'm in game because apparently I still have 5 hours of patching to go...

    EDIT: am thinking of going BLM / RDM

    Update: Spent most of today learning where things are in Bastok (So used to Windy)...

    Am leveling my sub first so level 10 RDM, and will head to Konstacht tomorrow.

    Night night ^^


    Edit: it's so hard to find a decent weapon. Bastok AH is crap, gil is hard to come by, and the vendor doesn't have any decent RDM items at all....

    Update
    Am 14 RDM, not long to go for my sub job quest.
    Haven't seen Enki or DH online yet, so feeling a little lonely. Already can't wait to get started on BLM

    I'm sorry Purrr - I've been in game a bit lately but probably at the wrong times when you're not on. Ah well.

    As for low-level RDM equip, lately the AH has been pretty dead for low level stuff for some reason, so I'd suggest trying the NPC shops instead (there's weapon and armour stores on the street south west of the AH in Bastok Markets, which I think sell low level swords and I think there's also a weapon shop in Bastok Mines as well).

    Armour wise, if you're soloing it would be better to use heavier armour than robes for RDM, as the extra defense will make the difference - the most up to date set (and easiest to aquire at that point) for level 14 RDM would be the Bone Harness set, which I'm pretty sure is sold at the aforementioned armour shop.

    Additionally, once you've done a few easy quests and have some fame behind you, find a guy by the name of Elki (that's Elki not 'Enki' ) in the Inn in Bastok Mines - he'll give you two reasonably easy quests - the second one will reward you with a Small Sword, which is equippable by RDM at level 18, so it's worth doing.

    No worries yeah it must be a case of our times online not coinciding. I think you're 3 hours behind my time from memory, I could be wrong though.

    Also thanks for the advice regarding RDM weapons. I am finding my RDM to be a lot weaker than my taru MNK because I'm level 14 and only starting Konstacht now. This will hopefully be made easier once I do the sub job quest and eventually go BLM / RDM
