    And the point was...?

    Anyone else who does the cookbook quest in Sacrarium every week will know just how shitty the above picture is. So it's not the end of the world having to wait an extra minute for a true sight IT Tarus to move at each junction but did they really need to do this? Try focusing on fixing the damn game instead of making a quick and easy way to obtain 1k exp just that bit harder

    I quested it on Monday after the patch (partly to see if they moved the stegs around) but got it on the 2nd room, so didn't get to the junction.

    If they really wanted to force you to deal with a steg, they should have just moved one to the south hallway at the entrance. Then again you could just train it to zone and re-enter real fast after it depopped from being out of its normal roaming area

    PS. 1396 xp this week from that scroll :D

    I didnt know a quest like this existed, so I have no sympathy for people saying its too hard cause they didn't tell me about it.

    - Speak to Jonette underneath where the Moogles are in Safehold.
    - Go in Sacararium and check the four outer rooms for a ???
    - Go back and get your exp lol. That's it, stupidly easy.

    The ??? moves every 4 hours 15 minutes ingame time between the order of F6>H11>F11>H6 before starting over again at F6 (it never pops in the two central rooms on either side). It's, like, around the corner on the bookshelves to your left/right as you enter each room.

    It took a month, I level slow.

    Seriously though, you're in the military, no? Could you arrange to have Spain bombed for me?

    Escort quest (Bastok/Crawler's Nest is easist)
    + Spice Gals
    + Uninvited Guests
    + Secrets of Ovens Lost
    = 4 x 500-1500XP scrolls/conquest tally. Useable at level 20.

    Uninvited Guests you generally want to do in pairs, basically a NIN or WAR + mage pair, and you need 1 scale to get through Riverneb01 (easy to solo farm for ninja or red mage), and you aren't gaurenteed scroll, but you CAN get cloud evoker.

    Escort quest can take a bit of time, theres 1 for each of the starting cities so you have some choice of which to do.

    The Spice Gals "???" is right in front of Monarch Linn so you do that one on your way to doing Uninvited Guests.

    Secrets of Ovens Lost is the easist and you just run through Sacrarium with sneak. NIN can solo the Taurus if you really want to fight them, you can get Fomor Codex from them. Anyone sub BLM can seal + sleep, run past and log out the agro of Taurus. Anyone with a bit of skill can just walk past them if you know how agro works when a mob moves... I'll leave you to figure that one out on your own, lol.

    No one? ok. Guess I'll just explore sometime this week and find out for myself.

    i didn't know that was repeatable either.

    than again i'm too lazy to do Escort every week, so probably too lazy to these as well.

    How can you not do an escort a week? It is such easy XP to keep up your buffer.

    The new ones I noticed were at the two dead ends on opposite sides of the maze, and in the intersections leading to Keremet's room. The ones on the way to Keremet are to increase the mission's difficulty I'd guess, the ones in the maze are just minor annoyances.

    If you do one exp party a week for the same length of time it takes to do 3 of those quests, you'll get 2-3x the exp.

    However, escorts are great to use on jobs to get them through the dunes/Qufim

    Exactly. 4k XP on a 75 job isn't a lot. I'll go solo an ENM for that or something. Actually I get 9k XP, basically a free merit, with an ENM static most weeks. The XP scrolls I use on support jobs. Got my WAR from 32ish to 37 that way. I usually skip the escort quest though. Doing the other 3 doesn't take a lot of time and it's a shot at a cloud evoker.
