    Installing to another machine

    I want to install FFXI to another PC for my girlfriend. Can I do the basic CD installs, copy my FFXI folder over the top, run a file check and avoid the filthy 2hr download of the update that just fucking crashed?

    yes you just need to do the file check and once it's done you're ready to go

    Yes, you can (mostly). It will still check all of the files, so that will take a while, but it won't have to download anything so you avoid the download process.

    Awesome, thanks guys. Bastard update failed at 98% and I'd rather not wait around that long. It's bad enough that I'll have to go farm her a coffer key so she can get to Aht Urgan -.-

    Also make sure to copy your macros over as well from the User folder. Good idea to back these up anyways, in case you ever need to do a fresh OS installation or POL mysteriously erases your macros (happens occasionally).

    Between the drop rate on coffer keys and testimonies Davoi is pound for pound the best place to get through the Al Zhabi boarding pass quest. If I ever wanted to get my mules access, that is where I would go.

    go kill that wanna be dark nm in monastic cavern or whatever its called. THe warlord or something. Drops every time I think. At least thats how I got mine and a friends in 2 kills.

    I dunno what game you guys are playing.. Davoi key rate has to be the worst in the game -_-

    That said, the testimonies drop fast enough there anyway

  12. #12

    Davoi is pretty "bleh" key-wise from my own experience. But I've shite luck in general. No clue on Testi drops there.

    If your GF has Sky the Pots practically throw RDM Testi at you.

    We farmed about 8 of them when the expansion came out in like 30min.

    davoi's not so great for me. The only place that I've found to get keys/testimonies within moments is Quicksand Caves. Seriously if you dont get a testimony within 5 kills , something's going wrong

    I killed a Goblin White mage in Cape terrigan, testimony on first kill, for my ToAU pass. I think there is some gobs in Gustav tunnel with similarly high drop rate of tests.

    Thanks for the input, luckily she had a QSC coffer key in her inventory from xp there.
