    Apparently something that has been recently implemented has resulted in a huge amount of Frosted Glass Lenses flooding the market. I assume it's something readily available & beneficial but those who know seem to be reluctant to help others out (great community spirit) by saying what it is. Anyone got any ideas? I know the old items that gave them but this must be either an increase in their availability (Diadem?) or something new altogether.

    Just look at what requires frosted glass lenses to make and you'll know what to pull apart.

    I did, but they're all things that have been in game quite some time, hence why I wondered if some new way to get them had been implemented. A fortnight ago there'd be single expensive lenses on the market but now they're cheap & in stacks of 99. Unless XIVdb & GarlandTools have yet to be updated with the new recipes.

    I'm assuming its the Wall Lantern you can buy from your estate maidservant/butler now (along with many many many many other old furnishings that you used to have to craft). 3000 gil and easily desynthed with BSM. Still I don't see who would buy literally thousands (tens of thousands?) of these in order to flood the market with stacks upon stacks of Frosted Glass Lenses. They're good, but they're not THAT good, and the lantern will long since be useless for desynth leveling before you even get a couple stacks of Frosted Glass Lenses. It's still baffling to see that many frosted glass lenses from one person no matter what the method of acquisition. Nobody wants 99 Frosted Glass Lenses.

    I used them to go from d240 to d250 easily in a few days. They're selling, in pretty large quantities, for 50k-80k on my server, the smallest server. They'd probably be a lot cheaper by now if I hadn't kept buying them up and keeping the price around 80k, lol. I imagine they are significantly cheaper on other servers. 50k is super cheap for this high level of desynth and you only need about 10 to level up once at the lower end and 30-40 to level up even at d249. This is as close to fodder as you're going to get for CUL, so take advantage of it now before diadem dies again.

    If 500k-1mil per level is too expensive for you, you can go catch them yourself for free. I typically got 3-4 Peteinosaurs just fishing for a little bit after mission objectives, so if you focused on fishing the entire time, you could probably get 10 or more per diadem run.

    Also, After desynthing hundreds of them I can say they do not desynth into their leather. Wind III and IV materia, Gold piece, Grey Pigment, Fine Sand, and Wind/Water Clusters. That's it. (of course, looking back the Wind IV materia will probably sell for as much as a Peteinosaur, with the rush on Elemental IV materia for crystal sand going on right now :P)

    If you have GSM desynth, trading in for the artisan's spectables in mor dhona has been my go to. the turn in item is an HQ rose gold cog, very cheap to make.

    GSM desynthsis 176. Been doing Griffin Talon Needles iL150 from Azys Lla. Down to .03 skillups and the PvP iL180 is still at 60% with tinker's bacon.

    Is there any bridge desynthissis between the two other than the iL170 crafting and gathering accessories? Even something for scrip?

    If your desynthsis skill is high enough I got a BUNCH of FC III from those Griffin Talon Needles, 1 - 3 when they fell. I think I ended with almost as many FCIIIs as desynths I did.
