    I would not do 50 trade ins unless I had like 500 to do. But so far I've gotten pretty good rolls.

    [14:39]50 Anemos crystals exchanged for 153 protean crystals.
    [14:39]50 Anemos crystals exchanged for 161 protean crystals.
    [14:39]50 Anemos crystals exchanged for 243 protean crystals.
    [14:39]50 Anemos crystals exchanged for 225 protean crystals.

    5/7 have been above the the 50% average rate.

    the latter would be far better, and the extra computing cost is so small it's not worth mentioning. but I bet they did it the former way
    If that were the case I wouldn't have gotten a fscking 243 (Like holy shit that's good). Its likely very, very simple.

    You turn in one for 2-5
    You turn in ten for 20-50
    You turn in fifty for 100-250

    yeah it's definitely the latter. I got 100 on one of my turn-ins... >.>

    was really disappointed after turning in 800 until I was like "this is bullshit. I should have a whole extra stack of protean laying around from all those exchanges." and then I looked and I missed a stack, so yeah it works out lol

    I'm a little anxious about the next step though. doing all six mage weapons was really easy this time... I don't know that I'll be able to continue. I get the feeling this was a nice, gentle introduction to the grind and Yoshi P won't be so kind next phase.


    unrelated: my current glam is scorpion harness, strider boots, emperor hairpin, and I am so happy that this is possible lol

    As per usual the bullshit of relics will be incorporated in the next batch lol. It won't (shouldn't) require anemos crystals because those are plentiful and we won't be in anemos, but it will require an asinine step for the sake of it, similar to getting lights or forcing reruns of older content. So it will not surprise me if monsters that currently pop no NMs in anemos atm will suddenly be needed for an item the FATE drops.

    ^ that's what I'm thinking. I'll probably drop most of my relics after the next phase depending

    I could see them requiring Anemos for further steps in addition to crystals for the new zone to keep Anemos relevant.

    I don't think so. More than likely they'll retune the amount of amenos crystal turn ins required

    or Daily and/or weekly quests.

    Not to mention further level increases will make even boss monsters like Pazuzu a faster kill.

    I do think future crystals will be able to be converted into protean.

    I'm a filthy level 2 noob who's not ventured pass the shell/sea mobs outside of the camp

    What's the best way for me to get the Rare/Ex glamour? Join NM train and cruise along/dodge all mobs along the way?

    Yeah but you won't have a chance to roll at it until you're one level less than the NM is designed for.

    Which isn't to say you need to be max level per se, but until around 12-13... you'll be standing around doing a lot of nothing getting mostly just exp, so be a class that can raise. After that those levels you start to be able to matter and do things to monsters and start getting more rewards, and 15+ You can be DPS/tank and actually do things on 90% of the NM.

    The easiest way to level right now is to just do that fate train, join as a class that can rez, possibly heal, and just keep your head down and do that.

    The fate train overall quality has dropped drasticaly now, so better get on with it while people still have a working half brain, it seems recording and following accurate timer is becoming too hard for most..

    Not only that, people help each others a lot less when going from A to B, don't bother with lower level fates, dropping right after Pazuzu goes down (zones gone half-dead) etc. I have an alt I wanted to get through that stuff, and it's a lot more gruelling the 2nd time around, and not just because I don't enjoy Eureka.

    To be fair, hopping for Pazuzu happened like..after the 5th day lol. It's more apparent now because the leeches are all level 19/20 now. So yeah the quality has dropped significantly (as usual, ESPECIALLY on aether if you play during the wrong times) and the amount of leeching has grown significantly.

    That's why I cracked out and completed everything within the first week because I knew what would happen when the 'leftovers' as people call them hop onto it. It happens with Primals lol. Also, trolls are trying to take over the NM tracker when someone (with a brain) has to leave, and causes all sorts of chaos.

    So you can partially blame SE for making the content the way it is and not actually looking at FFXI outside of the leveling experience, but also blame the fact there's virtually nothing to do in Eureka BUT fate train for efficiency. Low level fates are sadly worthless in every sense to people at level 20 (seems to be more of an NA thing, only seen low level NMs not killed once or twice in past week on JP datacenters) since the high level ones give most anemos/mendacity. So at this point if you're not done/gearing out EVERYTHING, you're storing anemos to convert to protean for the next round in 4.35 and most efficient is high level NMs/instance hop pazuzu.
