    [dev1000] Dynamis Reborn!

    Remember the days Gil Farms would not buy expansions because they were too expensive. Now they can buy expansions and abyssea for 10-20 bucks for the lot.
    now they can create level 90 jobs in just a day.

    I have a feeling that they will come back in force with this update and farm Dynamis to the point where they will control the currency market as they did with the crafting markets for a few years.

    I understand that FFXI is taking a more "WoW" approach to appeal to the teens with A.D.D who need everything quickly and with ease, but being able to not hit that lump like paying 500k per dynamis will allow Gil Farms to jump on a bandwagon and ease on in.

    I'm on a server now where you can see new players buying gil left and right. People who you know just registered in the game and already buying items that are in the hundreds of thousands. It's nice that the game has cut the throat of a lot of gil farms and made gil pretty useless at some point, but i just have a bad feeling about taking the speed bump out of Dynamis events.

    just an opinion,

    • Monster claim and item drops will work the same way as in regular fields and dungeons.
    Sorry for the earlier confusion and I hope this clears things up!


    [dev1000] Dynamis Reborn!

    Adjustments:

    Reservations will no longer be required to enter the above areas.
    New key items will replace the "Timeless Hourglass" and "Perpetual Hourglass" items needed for entry.

    The key items need only be obtained once.
    It will be made available at an affordable price via the Goblin NPCs presently dealing in hourglasses.

    Time restriction for entry will be changed to once per Earth day.
    Trigger items will be introduced as a new spawn condition for certain notorious monsters (NMs).
    Monster distribution will receive drastic revisions.
    Monsters will yield experience points (excluding certain NMs).

    I respectfully disagree with your opinion.

    RMT don't really care enough about this game anymore to cause the damage you've described.

    Considering the present state of both of Square-Enix' MMO's, are you particularly surprised at this development?

    As for the adjustments, I get the feeling that this is really going to screw up Dynamis for legitimate players.

    If you think about, it's more of the 'first kid on the block to have the new toy...' -- Rank 10 used to mean something back when the game first came out. Some philosophy.

    Yeah I found out the hard way about that. I returned after 22 months and made a party and started snagging people with proper rank. Boy was I wrong, the people were clueless and never been to the zones I was taken them to level.

    I disbanded and ran away crying

    Another side note onto this.

    I was reading another post and if any old joe can jump into dynamis while a group is in there they can sit back ( ie a BST ) and pick off mobs and basically steal mobs from that alliance.

    All it takes is a quick finger for a BST to take a NM in there because @ 90 a BST can solo the NM there. I farm in there as is solo as BST.

    Please tell me, upon rereading, that this is not going to go like what I am beginning to fear it will. We might as well just make the mobs soloable and let the players run roughshod like it were Abyssea.

    Please it let not be this way.

    I have the same feeling about it, even thinking to quit the game now, same for many of my friend. I loved the challenge SE gave to us, and really thanks them for it. Just wish SE review that update.
