    Are there campaigns that increase the rate of heavy metal plates?

    Ya. Couldn't figure out which filter would let me see. Tried damn near all but it never did. Thanks. Got no idea what that is, but I'll look it up.

    I have been going over all this shit I've made or messed with on the wiki for years, to try and update it. It feels like an impossible task.

    Was working on updating the 1-119 guide today, and while I added some solid info. It just seems like I can't catch up.

    I returned a week ago and have been using wiki for most of it. There are some little details here and there that could be expanded upon, but with the sheer amount of content in this game, good luck.

    I'm in the process of editing up some videos for a visual guide since most of what's on YouTube right now is garbage and/or outdated.

    If you'd like to incorporate some links in the wiki to help you and everyone else out lmk. That way instead of having to go into detail about moving from point A to B, you can just refer to the vid.

    Anything come directly to mind to expand on?

    These would go under the Gameplay Guides page as video guides, similar to the way the Job Guides page handles them. I would just make a new template to accommodate such in a quick minute or two if that is the case.

    It always will. Ultimate Weapons aren't really that special. So you get to go through the grind.

    Fastest way to obtain beads? I'm doing DI which is spammable but can anything give you beads in bigger chunks? Need the 50k to start Aeonic.

    If you are getting the 1k beads from DI, then that is going to probably be your best bet.

    Sort of depends.

    The other primary way of accumulating beads is to kill Geas Fete NMs, especially now that the Blessings are basically always up. The higher tier you can manage, and faster you can kill them (counting reacquiring KIs to pop), the more likely you are to overtake DI. I think the common targets here are either Zi'Tah T3 (Behemoth in particular) or Reisen T1s. The more actual players you have to hold pops the faster it can be, since swapping party/alliance lead is faster than running back to the NPC. I want to say those are something like 190 and 100ish beads per, for the ones mentioned?

    You may also just choose to build beads this way because of added benefits - (low) chance of a Pulse weapon for Zi'Tah T3, or stones for Oseem from Reisen. Or you could choose to target things that drop Eschite ore or whatever as well. Essentially, even if your bead farming ends up being slower, it could still be a better overall use of time, given that DI point farming is capped.


    That said, if you've got a good DI rotation happening - enough people showing up that the pop time is minimal, but you're still hitting ~1k per... I'm not sure you can readily top that.

    Something I didnt know til recently but youre best off NOT weaponskilling and just auto-attacking in max crit hit rate gear when it comes to bead farming.

    This sums it all up.

    Correct, but since the changes of the not too distant past. I am just fighting and spamming WSs and capping beads in quick fights on Asura. At the onset of DI that wasn't the case and you'd get almost no beads if you didn't just auto-attack as a DW job.

    What does the not WSing thing have to do with getting (more) beads from DI?

    Critical Hits evaluation is how most people cap. Summon Lilisette II and you'll cap with no issues either way though.
