Extra notes


- Relic Weapons and their weaponskills have all been given minor boosts. - Please do not install Light Luggage or Plastic Surgeon plugins. They can/will cause problems and crashes, both client and serve-rside.
- Please use /pcmd leave to leave an alliance. If you use the party menu/dissolve alliance options, it often crashes the server.
- Steam Cleaner spawns on his own and not from a detector.
- Some craft recipes will 'cap' at one level below what online guides say they will. It is best not to use synthesis support when leveling a craft.
- Beastmaster quest requires the chocobo quest to be completed to unlock.
- Sewer Syrup's location is not where listed on the wiki, he's in the hallway at I-8/I-9.
- You can only do one relic weapon quest at a time, even though it will allow you to start another (you will lose the weapons).
- Relic Weapon wait time stages can be found here (they do NOT match current Retail wait times).
- Argus and Leech King are now like retail.
- When unlocking Corsair, there is no need for the Lamia Key. The gate is always unlocked.
- All 10 Knight crabs must be spawned in, before killing them all to spawn King Arthro, or he will not pop.
- Brigandish Blade NM does not need a Buccaneer's knife in order to be killed.
- Sozu Rogberry does not require a flickering lantern, it's a lottery pop: Placeholders are the Tonberry Stabber mobs located directly adjacent to his 'room' on the third map of The Temple
- You need the Prelate Key in order to get through the door in Uggalepih to get to the Crimson-toothed Pawberry spawn point.
- Eastern Shadow in Fei'Yin is a lottery pop of the RNG spectre in that general area, with a 16-32 hour window after ToD.
- Job Testimony items can only be used once, and must be dropped from inventory after a Maat loss before a new on can be obtained.
- AF does not need to be quested and can be bought from a shop at level 60 by using the command @af job, eg @af war
- All wait times that refer to midnight are Eastern time, not Japan time.
- When using FFXIclopedia, hover over the arrow next to the "Edit" button and select "History" - then, choose a page version created in 2007-2008. Generally, these are more accurate to Hokutens than the current FFXIclopedia pages.
