    New ToAU NMs (Now with 100% more Pandemonium!) pg77

    The NPCs (Ryo and Sanraku) are located in Whitegate, in Balrahn's way along the north wall on the bottom level (basically under where you get ISNM offers, just west of the PUP performance NPC).

    So basically:

    1) Speak to Sanraku and then Ryo


    2) Get a soultrapper and plates (soultrapper 2000 works, as do high speed plates):

    Soultrapper (2 jettons in the colliseum), Soul Plate x12 (2 jettons), Soultrapper 2000 (500 jettons), High Speed soul plate x12 (500 jettons).
    Exchange rate: imperial bronze piece = 1 jetton, imperial silver piece = 10 jettons, imperial mythril piece = 30 jettons, imperial gold piece = 200 jettons, you can also win jettons from matches.


    3) Ryo will have 2 different options to find out what Sanraku is looking for, "Recommended fauna" and "Sanraku's interest". For me, "Recommended fauna" was khimaira, "Sanraku's interest" is diremites. This seems to be the same for all players on the server, and does not change with the vanadiel day.

    **note: "Sanraku's interest" images apparently have a quota, and once he's reached this quote from trades from all adventurers he will change his interests to something else (sometimes in the same vanadiel day). You can still trade your already-taken pictures, you just wont get as many points. It's still unclear if "recommended fauna" has a quota.


    4) Take a picture of the monster and bring it to Ryo, she'll tell you if it's a 'good shot' that's well framed etc and estimate it's worth. I received 50, 54, and 54 zeni appraisal for the 3 diremite pictures I traded in. Confirmed that lower monster health = more points, I got 72-73 points from a diremite at 10% health and similar things have been reported. Recommended fauna are thought to give significantly more points than "sanraku's interest".

    5) Give the picture to Sanraku to add "zeni" to your account. Doing so for the first time will open up the following options:
    **There is a limit of 10 plates traded per vanadiel day, regardless of which category they come from.

    Locating unique fauna:

    Here's a visio of the NMs and their drops/key items/tiers. Credit goes to Lisander on this, great work:

    **note: current theory is that the tier 3 monsters, in addition to their trophies, can drop 0-2 of their unique weapons, 0-2 of the enkidu/aurum/oracles set pieces (excluding body and probably head), and 0-2 elemental grips. May be limited in number of drops.

    Tier 4 offers - cost currently unknown
    **note: current theory is that all 3 tier 3 seals for a particular area/track are required to access that area's corresponding tier 4 offer. Since each tier 3 yields a different color seal, and tier1 and tier2 have the same color seal, it's likely the path to tier 4 is as follows: 3x tier1 -> 3x tier2 -> all 3 tier3s -> tier4 for that track.

    Tinnin (Hydra) - Spawned by trading Monkey Wine to the ??? on the islet warped to from H-13 in Wajaom Woodlands
    Requires: Charcoal Grey seal, Deep Purple seal, and Chestnut-colored seal key items (may require salt for entry)
    Drops: Tinnin's Fang (not 100%), when traded gives the Lilac-colored Seal key item
    Alkalurops, Shusui, Oracle's Cap, Enkidu's Cap, Enkidu's Harness, Hachiryu Sune-Ate, Hydra Meat, Hydra Scale, Hydra Fang

    Sarameya (Cerberus) - Spawned by trading Buffalo Corpse to the ??? on the islet warped to from I-10 in Mt. Zhayolm
    Requires: Purplish-grey Seal, Gold-colored Seal, and Copper-colored Seal key items (may require salt for entry)
    Drops: Sarameya’s Hide (not 100%), when traded gives the Bright Blue Seal key item
    Foolkiller, Pachipachio, Oracle's Cap, Oracle's Robe, Aurum Armet, Hachiryu Haidate, Cerberus Claw, Cerberus Meat, Cerberus Hide

    Tyger (Khimaira) - Spawned by trading Singed Buffalo to the ??? on the islet warped to from H-6 in Caedarva Mire, on the Hediva Isle Map
    Requires: Fallow-colored seal, Taupe-colored seal, and Sienna-colored Seal key items (may require salt for entry)
    Drops: Tyger’s Tail (not 100%), when traded gives the Lavender-colored Seal key item
    Antares, Aurum Armet, Aurum Cuirass, Oracle's Cap, Enkidu's Cap, Hachiryu Kote, Khimaira Mane, Khimaira Tail, Khimaira Horn
    Tier 5 offers
    It is speculated there is a 5th tier beyond this, consisting of Pandemonium (Pandemonium Key). Current speculation is that the seals from trading all 3 of the tier 4 trophies in will open up this offer. Most likely requires the Lilac-colored Seal, Bright Blue Seal, and Lavender-colored Seal key items for entry. Is probably a Dvergr-type monster.

    7) If you speak to Ryo again about "gaining access to inlets", she will mention the 3 engraved tablets in caedarva/wajaom/zhayolm.

    Islet locations:
    Wajaom Woodlands H-13
    Mt. Zhayolm I-10
    Caedarva Mire (Hediva Isle, where you fight khim) H-6

    Speak to Sanraku again to open up the dialogue option regarding inlets. He will offer to tell you about a specific islet for 500 zeni. He will give you a key item that allows you to warp to an instanced island mentioned above (ala ouryu), every participant in the battle/instance needs their own salt which is consumed upon entry.

    **note: It's assumed that although you need 1 salt per person you only need 1 offer per person. The current theory is that the islands are only used for the 3 ToAU HNM copies (hydra/khim/cerb), with ???s for the other ZNMs located elsewhere in ToAU areas.

    ---

    That's it for now. Currently unknown things:
    1) How do you access tier 4 offers?
    2) Where you fight the NMs?
    3) What determines what makes a "good shot" and nets more zeni? Direction, distance, etc?
    4) What do they drop? Is it 100? Is there a trade-in drop system like limbus/sea? Do the mobs drop their standard mob drops (cerb hides, soulflayer staves, etc)?
    5) Is there a quota for "Recommended fauna" plates before Ryo begins saying Sanraku wants something else?
    6) Are seals expended when selecting a higher tier offer?

    ill try to keep this post updated with more info as people post it. Thanks to all who have been helping find out stuff about this.

    Mod edit : Changed title to reflect recent discussion.

    I find it absolutely hilarious that they found a way to shoehorn the otherwise totally worthless pankration into the new NM system. I'm not complaining or anything; I just think it's damned funny.

    Have you tried to say no, and see if you get different options, or say yes, and cancel it and get something else?

    there's no yes/no option, she just mentions what picture Ryo would like to see and then exits you to the menu of stuff you can talk about. I'll try talking to her again now that the vanadiel day has changed (and I've zoned) and see if she says something different.

    i'm sure if it tells you that it wants a picture from a specific place, wouldnt that mean only that place would work lol? Any person taking photos at any event when they should be paying attention is asking to get grilled from a leader lol

    pretty sure Sanraku is the girl you deal with and Ryo is the dude who you eventually gives you the offer, but ill check again when I go look to see about getting a different mob

    edit: I got them mixed up, you were right. I'll fix my original post, thanks
