- Argus and Leech King are now like retail.
- When unlocking Corsair, there is no need for the Lamia Key. The gate is always unlocked.

- 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.

- 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.
