    Yellow Scrips: Haven't looked; I'm wasting my scrips on gear because I can't be bothered to meld my gear.

    Red Scrips: I definitely advise getting any folklore books and/or recipe books, but if you're like me and done with all that, I suggest desynthesis.

    Obviously desynthesis won't work for everyone (either due to the crafts selected, or because they don't have it leveled), but for red scrips, I buy tons of Rowena's Token (Blue Scrip) and then buy stuff in Idyllshire to desynthesize (~Lv180 skill level). The Field Demi 3s are generally floating in the 40k~50k range on my server, so it's decent enough. I generally buy pants because they cost 3 tokens and can turn into 2 Field Demi 3s for a single pair of pants. I could desynth the accessories for 2 tokens each, but I think they cap out at a single field demi 3, though I haven't done the math to see which is better. I also get a bunch of Glass Fibers (I should start selling those, though I doubt the demand is high), and on very rare occasions an Astral Silk. My last round was 198 tokens (at 3 tokens per, that's 66 pants) and I left with 1 Astral Silk (~100k), ~20 Field Demi 3s (~800k), and 20~30 Glass Fibers. The rest was all crap (Chimerical Felt / Hallowed Ramie Cloth or Amphiptere Leather / Dragon Leather, depending on which desynth skill you're using). I think they might've removed the ability to get Clear Demi 3s from these things? I didn't get a single one last time, and after 66 pants, I think that's a solid no.

    Side note: These things are Unique (well, the accessories aren't, if you go that route), so it takes fucking forever if you do it in bulk like I do. Spend a few tokens, blow those up, rinse, repeat. The menus are atrocious. Select the item you want, "You can't equip that, are you sure you want to buy it?", click yes, right-click the tokens to put them in the trade window, click yes, repeat ad nauseum. Then every desynth gives you the "This is unique/untradeable, are you sure you want to destroy this?" alert.

    only thing I can see for yellow is bait, which has hit rock bottom on my server so meh. red I'm like... idk, hi-cordials?
    I just stopped bothering, been too into Star Ocean HD that came out a couple weeks back. Trying to keep up on the quests in that game bleeds out a lot of time, lol. Lately I just log in to cap creation and get my upgrade item from Rabanastre, than I'm done for the week, unless my FC has an extra spot for Savage that week. I feel weird doing it with pick up groups.

    I appreciate the desynth suggestion but the only one I have (though it's almost maxed, so that's nice) is CUL desynth :/ but even just desynthing fish is better than nothing so that might be the route I go. all the bait and such is literally like, 100 gil or less o


    @Classik I just want the titles, and it takes about half a year of doing the maximum 6 deliveries per week (150 deliveries total) might as well use the scrips while I'm doing that, y'know?

    You could stockpile the specialist job change items. That's the only thing I can think of to junk my red scrips on atm.

    Hoard materia too for future melds/selling. Never hurts.

    I get the Gyr Thingie Vials from yellow crafting scrips and stockpile T5 materia for when they release accessories next tier, the lady grabs some of the bait I think so she can fish up for aetherial breakdown sands as crafting ingredient, some to gear alts to have all specialties, some for shineys.

    Well, all the stuff we have to do as crafters this update, at least we don't have to get the new augmented gear.... just compared it to my Ala Mhigan gear. Not even the weapon is worth getting. with the melds I'm using, I have the same Control, 4 less craftsmanship, and 5 more CP. Has anyone seen any crafted accessories yet?

    Whenever you rank up with a beast tribe and that unlock offers more quests then you get more.

    AFAIK with SB and HW when you hit rank 6>7 and 7>8 you don't get new beast tribes. If you've been doing them since before reset on patch day you should've done 6 sets of quests.

    How often and how many do Custom Deliveries Allowances regenerate?

    Thanks. Any benefit outside of the yellow/red scripts to doing it every week after you are at 5 hearts?

    titles after 150 deliveries for each client. other than that, no


    (and yes that is 25 weeks of deliveries... worth it imo )

    Its worth it for the free Vs and VI materia you can snag anyway.

    Or if you want the i330 script gear so you can get to level80 crafts with little to no pain.

    Personally I'm doing some insane melds on my i340 omni gear right now. VIs in every first overmeld (Except Pants/Boots because its a 2 Control or 3 Craftsman difference) kill me.

    (But it is the cheapest/fastest way to get scripts and I wholly recommend if for the gear alone.)

    I think you mean 12 every week, but you can only spend 6 per NPC.

    Might be moot point if all your crafts/gathering are capped, but it's also a good exp source.

    molybdenum alembics are pretty good for yellows. cheap and easy to make, worth over a kingcraft each. for reds i usually do whatever is on bonus that doesn't use leather or cloth.
