    Was wondering why I was getting 3 seals at once!

    Any idea what gets dropped in the bc fights? I guess this was a previous event that I wasn't playing when it happened. Also, which ones are simple to win?

    Seals battlefield event

    For reference in case the "seals battlefield event" is the same shit as last month (will edit if I see any differences) (Edit: so far seems to be the same shit although I only did KCNM 30)

    Direct treasure pool from "boss" NMs (not armory crate) for these seems to be like this (8 items possible):
    • 1 golden seed pouch or 1 jar of monarch beetle saliva (uncommon substitution: event items like Nomad Moogle Rod, Chocobo Wand, Redeyes)
    • 1 Mog Bonanza Kupon S (uncommon: Mog Bonanza Kupon L - this is for jailer torques and sea capes)
    • 1 Scroll (uncommon: Arise and Meteor)
    • 1 Scroll
    • 1 synthesis item (uncommon: VW/Legion drops like Serica Cloth, Scarletite Ingot)
    • 0-1 additional synthesis item
    • 1 of Empyrean upgrade item (AF3+2) typically. Can be substituted (uncommonly) by the following depending on orb type (specific battlefield in parentheses)
      • Phobos Orb (30 KC) (WoE currency sacks/pouches... haven't gotten single currency yet. Also don't know if the type of sack/pouch is specific for battlefield):
        • Dragon Driftwood tincture (see: https://www.bg-wiki.com/bg/Rienne) (The V Formation)... FYI MAB bonus appeared to be only +15 (for 40,000 bayld... ok)
        • Frayed sack of liminality (got x2 from a single run of The Palborough Project)
        • Frayed pouch of ruin (The Palborough Project)
        • Frayed pouch of advancement (Kindergarten Cap)
      • Deimos Orb (50 KC):
        • corvine abjurations (Last Orc-Shunned Hero)
        • supernal abjurations (Shell Shocked)
        • transitory abjurations (Avian Apostates)
        • lenitive abjurations (Whom Wilt Thou Call)
        • foreboding abjurations (Dragon Scales)
      • Zelos Orb (30 HKC):
        • Skirmish simulacrum segments such as tier III visage (Taurassic Park)
        • Mog Bonanza Kupon P (Pandemonium Warden items) or Mog Bonanza Kupon A (Absolute Virtue items) (Antagonistic Ambuscade)
      • Bia Orb (50 HKC):
        • R/M/E currency such alexandrite, Dynamis currency (including 100s), heavy metal plates (???) (The Mobline Comedy)
        • NQ and HQ hexed equipment (Nest of Nightmares)
      • 0-1 additional Empyrean upgrade item, etc. (see above)

    Note: each "boss" NM (e.g. The Mobline Comedy bugbears are the two bosses while all the tauri in Taurassic Park are "bosses") has its own direct treasure pool. But if the battlefield has more than one "boss" NM then you get only 1 synthesis item slot and 1 empyrean upgrade item slot (so six items max) for each boss NM that dies (so 6 total drops instead of 8). Also the "additional" (0-1) slots are NOT 100% for battlefields with only one NM though.

    Protip: Manifestation + Kaustra all mobs to save time if you soloing as SCH. Apparently this simultaneously tags all mobs with a kind of "claim" status (regardless of red name status). As long as you DO NOT perform any other direct actions on a single mob (leave them alone after AoE Kaustra... go kite a bit) you will get all direct treasure pool items from all boss NMs. I've done this several times without any issues.

    List of KCNMs, HKCNMs:

    I wonder if just the Party member amount counts or if they have to actually be in the zone with you? Could just do 6 man PT and everyone sit in some med-high drop zone... but 1 poor guy or mule.

    Curry (and curry bun) party bonuses require party members to be in the same area (as I recall... been a while), so I figure for crest farming it's the same deal

    What the fuck is the point of the double synth rate only at certain times?

    I get home from work at 5, and I go to sleep at 10, fuck you SE.

    You need to get two shirts to synth the HQ shirt so it makes it so you only have to buy 1 from the login event.

    Right, but every time before they've geared these things so you had to spend the majority of your points on the costume item if you wanted it. This time it seems like they don't even care.

    for the adjusted crest drop rate, it seems that they're still limited to the 5 minute window (-TH adjustment), and if one is slated to drop, everyone in the party seems to get a roll on it.

    Party of 3
    12:00 kill mob, 3 seals drop
    no seals will drop till ~12:05
    12:05 kill mob, 1 seal drops
    no seals will drop till ~12:10, regardless if only one dropped
    12:10 kill mob, 2 seals drop
    etc etc

    thats how I notice it going in the past hour or so.


    If you're not zoning, go into an ally if possible. If you're zoning, stick to a party. I havent fully tested the ally theory though, as I only have 3 characters to work with. But in the first 10 min or so I've gotten one seal off one mob, then another within 2 min from a kill in other ally.

    Eh, well they also have those pants and feet this time so you'll end up spending a lot if you want them all anyway. Either way its nice to have the shirt as a "whee 11/11" reward or something.

    lol seems SE responding to the complaining you did. Seals dropping like rain, should have np getting seals now for these bcnm. Have gotten 4 in one pool, not sure if 6 gives chance for 6 in one mob since people have tried farming as 6 and haven't reported 6 seals.
