    Neo Nyzul Isle (Will FFXI continue? Find out on the next FFXI XP Pack!)

    Apart from this, the update was kind of lacking. Here is a brief summary of what we know so far:
    * The format is essentially the same as level 75 Nyzul Isle with updated levels, except that you progress through it differently.
    ** Same monster types
    ** Same floor objectives
    ** Same temp items/prices
    ** Bosses still show up on Floors 20, 40, 60, 80, and 100.
    ** 30 minute time limit

    Climbing:
    At the end of each floor, you are given the option to ascend ??? floors or to advance to the next floor. The idea is that you will blitz along taking ??? floor (+2~9 ) options until you are within striking distance of a boss, and then you will advance single floors to get to the boss.

    If it is an even distribution between 2 and 9, you would expect to travel 5.5 on average each time. This means that you would have to successfully complete ~18 floors on average to get to floor 100, and get lucky enough to have your final ??? floor land you on it. There must be a gimmick, because this is nearly impossible.

    Alexandrite:
    Alexandrite can drop off normal outside-NMs that you find in Nyzul Isle in single pieces. It can drop off the floor 20/40/etc bosses in Cotton pouches for certain. Treasure Hunter does seem to matter.

    What to put in this thread:
    1) What outside-NM did you encounter, and what floor did you encounter them on?
    2) What are the floor bosses names and characteristics?
    3) What is the gimmick that will let us kill bosses other than floor 20 and 40?
    4) Did you get a Linen pouch? Where?
    5) How many tokens did you get?

    Notorious Monsters:
    Much like Nyzul Isle Investigation, it appears Uncharted Territories has outside NMs distributed in 20-level blocks. These NMs can drop single Alexandrites (max 1, not 100%) and their ??? item, which will appraise into the finest bone earring that you've ever seen. Here are my guesses based on the dat list Septimus gave me. Please tell me if you find some that violate the list. I have bolded the ones that are the known limits in the .dats:

    Fafnir, Behemoth, etc. have been sighted in the 50s. There is something more mysterious about this than the above list makes out.

    Honest question: Are all 100 floors being implemented today?

    Question from a nub (me):

    Never did Nyzul back in the day, but I was wondering if this may be a good place to start? From what I read I shouldn't expect the weapons to drop on "??? Floors" but I'm thinking it may be great for a crash course. Anyone try it yet? Any tips? Also what should I expect from this sort of event?

    I'm on Carbuncle (username on here is IGN).

    Must be time extensions or something. Like up to 60min. Then it would be perfectly doable...

    ...so 20/40/60/80/100 dropping HQ pieces is probably true. Kinda fucking retarded.

    That's... idiotic. That makes the NQ drops complete junk rather than something you get and then progress on.

    Also, in before arguments about someone with the +2 lotting over someone without anything when you get the +3 because it's better, but then they have to toss the +2 that's already useable.

    20 = NQ
    40 = +1
    60 = +2
    80 = +3
    100 = HQ

    As was posted in the other thread, would be how it would likely go. This is pretty retarded, even for SE. Not only is it completely random if you even get to reach higher floors, but the gear drops would be completely fucking random too, out of a pool of all of the possible gear pieces with bodies/heads probably being far more rare than the rest. The event isn't even worth doing with those odds.

    So just wanna see if I'm reading this right, you do have the option to advance in a linear fashion, or you can jump around and hop to get closer to a boss floor skipping ones before it?

    You start at floor one, and on completion of a floor you get the choice to advance 1 floor or ???.

    We were doing ??? ones till we got close to a NM floor (aiming for 20), only someone in our party hit ??? rather than +1 on floor 19 sending us to 26.

    Has anyone tried doing a run without using any ??? floors? Maybe you can save progress on your disk if you do it that way, and then start from that?

    I mean, even assuming you got a jump of 8 every time, that's *still* 11 cleared floors + a boss in a single run, which was by no means a sure thing on the old Nyzul with mobs for 75....

    And that's after winning the RNG lottery.

    If there's no way to start higher than 1, or to get more than 30 minutes, fuck you SE.

    Our Disc was recorded to 20, has anyone been able to do a 2nd run and see if you can actually start from 20?

    Once you complete floor 100, can you just pick a floor like regular nyzul in increments of 5? If so would it be best to do the 3-8 option most of the time just to get a full clear then go back and farm?

    Think they already specified that you cannot save progress to your disc, but if you can that would alleviate things a great deal.

    You could not on the test server and it gave the same text (actually, it said your disc was recorded to 100).

    If you already have floor 100 cleared...can you simply start at floor 96, advance to ??? floor, end up on floor 100 and spam the boss or does the new Nyzul force you to start at floor 1?

    Prolly a null point right now since I doubt anyone has done it but do you get a new key item for doing floor 1-100 the new way?
