    Homam / Nashira armor possible source

    This is something I posted to Alla, but cross-posting here for visibility. The more I think about this the more I think it's correct.

    I have a strong theory on how these two armor sets are obtained:

    First off, it involvs Limbus. We did Limbus the other day and after clearing it, a regular Rare/Ex item dropped called "Ivory Chip". The description said something about indentations, can't remember exactly. Anyway, near the entrance to Limbus, there is a message when you click something that says something like "There are multiple six-sided indentations here."

    2+2=4 right?

    What I think is that you gather some combination of these chips, trade it to that target, and boom, something happens.

    But what happens?

    Well, consider this:

    There are 2 Limbus areas, Temenos and Apollyon
    There are hints in the DAT files of battles against 2 boss type monsters, Ultima and Omega.
    There are 2 sets of mysterious armor, Nashira and Homam

    There are 5 pieces of Homam armor.
    There are 5 pieces of Nashira armor.
    There are 5 items in the DAT files related to "tissue from Ultima".
    There are 5 items in the DAT files related to "tissue from Omega"

    There is an NPC in the middle of Al'Taieu named "Esha'ntarl" with no known way of getting to him.
    There is a zone in the DAT files in the Lumoria region called "The Last Stand" (fitting name if that's the where the real boss of Limbus is, eh?)
    There is text in the DAT files for "The Last Stand" that has references of "fighting", and text for menus like "Do you want to give up?"

    So put 2 and 2 together, and I think you see what I'm getting at.

    00000572 Enter which part of Apollyon?≺NewLine≻≺Selection Dialog≻None.≺NewLine≻SW Apollyon.≺NewLine≻NW Apollyon.≺NewLine≻SE Apollyon.≺NewLine≻NE Apollyon.≺NewLine≻Central Apollyon.≺NewLine≻≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻

    So far we can enter only NW, SW, NE, and NW. Central Apollyon must open up after you complete the four sub-areas?

    Tyche <3's the edit button. Not an excuse, but we've never had a BST in our LS, so i'll use that to excuse my stupidity.

    00000572 You have entered ≺Multiple Choice (Parameter 1)≻[Temenos - Northern Tower/Temenos - Eastern Tower/Temenos - Western Tower/Central Temenos - 4th Floor/Central Temenos - 3rd Floor/Central Temenos - 2nd Floor/Central Temenos - 1st Floor].
    Central Temenos, no one's been there yet.

    00000403 You insert the ≺Marker: 1A01≻ polished with ≺Marker: 1A00≻ into the slot!≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
    00000404 The light in the ≺Marker: 7F8101≻≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Item Parameter 0≻ has grown dim.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
    00000405 The ≺Marker: 7F8101≻≺Marker: 7F8201≻≺Item Parameter 0≻ is not responding.≺Marker: 7F3100≻≺NewLine≻
    Some text that may relate to the chips.

    edit:
    The Last Stand is in the Rise of Zilart .dat folder, so it probably isn't related to Limbus.

    So you collect 4 chips to enter Central Apollyon and 3 Chips to enter Central Temenos? 3 Chips are left unused.

    lol, yea, that looks pretty bad i guess. I actually never read that final response until just now cuz I couldn't find the thread again, once i learned of the chips and the message I started trying to piece together my own idea of what happens, which is why mine ties in with Esha'ntarl in the middle and the others tie in with Central Apollyon, which I didn't even know about. The Ultima & Omega ideas were also my own, and so was the armor trading for their body parts, but I imagine it doesn't look that way after reading other posts in that thread Anyway, w/e life sucks i'll get over it.

    Almost everyone who checked .dat made the same theories Not a good idea to start arguing about who find out first.



    For Esha'something, it just means she is in a cs. It might as well be a cs after both mega then before. Or maybe there is a completely independant quest that will be implemented later with her.
