    Like this post if you think today's Let's Go Vana'diel event is underwhelming

    I'm anticipating many likes.

    Here are the details if you haven't read them.

    XD There are no details in the official post! I get that they want it to be part of the fun to figure out what is going on, but maybe at the 12hr mark, they should post a detailed post to make sure that we don't miss anything.

    And yeah.... splattering Wild Rabbits for a consumable costume item isn't really that fun or exciting to me. :/

    Last month on the 15th (Let's Go Vana'diel Day) we got UNM Dial on boxes, mega-power boost to Special Dial treasures, maxed CAP bonuses, and a few other bonuses too I think.

    I am quite a fan of the Special Dial, and last month on the 15th the loot was really good for me, just crazy loopy Lootopia. I'm not sure if the bonus is active again today, so I may just hang on to my Special Keys.

    I notice there's no UNM Dial or other new dial today, so that probably means we are back to Onion Knives and insect wings on the Special Dial. I'm not willing to part with my Special Keys under these vague and unclear circumstances!

    They should have made it so that the large monsters give EXP and CP for the duration, that way it would have been kind of nostalgic running around the likes of West Ronfaure killing rabbits.

    you do know the special KEYS always have the same gear and items right? only the special DIAL changes during certain campaigns. allegedly. (The keys always has access to the better stuff where the dial has to be during a campaign it has the special or better chance for good stuff.)

    SP Keys give exactly whatever the dial is scheduled to give at the time you use it. No campaign = normal loot, whether you use a key or tally. All that a SP key does is give you a free spin of the SP dial.

    I am pretty sure the devs said the keys give better loot in the past always and dials only during campaign but im bout to hit the sack so not going to look now.

    even bgwiki seems to think so, granted there is a verification flag on it.

    "Tends to" does not equal "does". The verification flag on bgwiki is there since there's not enough evidence to prove either way, but I know I've gotten Distilled Water from using a key, so I say it falls under wishful thinking unless someone can dig up a devpost that states otherwise.

    I traded keys a lot during normal "no special events" times, and also a lot during the official POL announcements when they say "special dial will yield equipment more often" times.

    My conclusion is that I do get better loot more often during the special events.

    I can get amazing totally OMG outstanding loot during the "no bonus events" times too. But that is a much more rare occurrence. I have obtained two of the glowy Meebles weapons using special keys, during "no special events" times. But that is among thousands of keys, most of which were junk.

    By contrast, the special events tend to throw out some really nice gear, with a much higher frequency.

    I know what verification tag means that is why i mentioned it. the fact is there are 119 armors you can always get with the key, meanwhile the dial only nets those during the campaigns. the key doesnt negate shit drops in anyway, it doesnt promise awesome gear. So yes you can still get distilled waters and pebbles even during campaigns. I will spend a short time lookin for a dev post but I dont hold hope.
