    Some sea questions~

    Some of these have been asked before but I want some clarification, and the ones that have been asked are split into like 8 threads anyway so I find this kinda useful to ask now >.>

    So I got Sea tonight, been messing around killing some stuff with my girlfriend, all is well. We see a UFO and decide to pull it cause well we can take some VTs so we think we could do okay. It was an NM UFO ; ; This leads me to the first question:
    How can you tell the difference between the NM and normal UFOs, or between one tier of mobs and the higher tier?

    And next is about the gorgets...if a effect (i.e. Fusion) is found on 2, which is the better to get?

    And also, about the Obis, how exactly do they work? I've heard like 3 different things so I figure seasoned veterans like the people on this board should know for sure <.<

    All jellyfish are NMs, the gorgets suck, and the obis work just like they say they do on the description of it. And its a 10% boost per weather effect/elemental day, with a max of +30%.

    Weird, somepage says there's a type that isn't.

    And yes I did Zigma and most of it is hard to go through and about the Jailers and whatnot. I figure some concrete stuff might be nice.

    And about the Obi, does it work on all days? I.e. will the lightsday obi make cure +10% stronger every day if you're wearing it?

    As Sekkite said, all the Yovra mobs are NMs. I can't speak of the gorgets first hand, but the obis work as he just stated.

    In Al'Taieu, Ul' mobs are lower lvl (typically EP - Tough) mobs and Om' are higher level (typically Tough - VT)

    If I'm not mistaken, there are 6 Yovras in Al'Taieu. The 2 closest to the Auroral Updraft (to Sealion's Den) in the east and the west (1 of each) are Ul. The 4 farthest away (toward the towers where you fight the Aern NMs) are Om'... 2 east and 2 west. Om'Yovra as far as I know have a 100% drop rate on their organs while the Ul version are not guaranteed to drop.

    They work only if that icon is present (in the form of the day or weather).

    Examples:
    Lightningsday and no weather w/ Rairin Obi = +10% Thunder dmg
    Lightningsday and one lightning weather w/ Rairin Obi = +20% Thunder dmg
    Lightningsday and two lightning weather w/ Rairin Obi = +30% Thunder dmg
    Other day and one lightning weather w/ Rairin Obi = +10% Thunder dmg
    Other day and two lightning weather w/ Rairin Obi = +20% Thunder dmg
    Other day and no weather w/ Rairin Obi = +0% Thunder dmg

    Edit:
    No weather could just be any non-lightning weather in the example above.

    1/3 on UL'Ufos. 5/5 on the OM'Ufo drops. Cant say for sure the OMs are 100% but drop rate is good. We had 1 TH2 the whole time.

    Are you serious? I've had like 2 full stacks of phuabo organs just from the first patch sea was out (before NMs existed). They have an insane drop rate compared to all the other organs.
