==Blanked Pages==
I hope I'm leaving this message in the proper place. I complained about blanked pages and you asked which pages have been blanked. It appears I was mistaken. Several pages I've gone to lately appear as blanked but will later load in full. I'm not sure what the problem is but it is apparently NOT a problem on your end. Thanks for getting back to me, though. This is still my preferred reference site for FFXI. I try to update it whenever I have pertinent information to add. Thanks again. ~[ Zazhi], sylph

Moa Constrictors

If you still have the data, I'd be interested in seeing what items drop on each of the runs you did, preferably in the order that they appeared in the pool if you know. You can post it on my talk page or on the talk page for Moa Constrictors. Thanks ^^. Jawat 17:04, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Tango or not to Tango

Heh, that's OK, I think. It will be solved eventually, or if not, well then be it! Thanks for the message! ^^ « The Noob Unlimited » 02:10, October 18, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry for the belated reply, haven't been playing much lately and thus, haven't been around here either. Also, it seems I didn't notice your message in the talk page until now though looking at the date, it was before my reply above, which was to the private'ish message, perhaps due to the new wikia and some things being disabled confusion...

Anyhoo, I can't remember for certain when I first got the quest, or even tried to, but I would guess I did take it after the Mhaura scene, but can't be sure... If my brother starts playing again and we do these missions for him, or if I help someone else with it, then I can look into it more but as it is now, I really can't remember. I do think you got it pretty well down, though, and indeed mentioning your findings on the talk page will surely inspire other players to find our more about it!

As a conclusion, I can only say, keep up the good work! ^^ « The Noob Unlimited » 22:47, November 7, 2010 (UTC)

User Rights

I increased your privileges on the wiki, you should now be able to move / delete / protect pages. If you need any information about this, you can ask. Tahngarthortalk-contribs 22:54, June 18, 2013 (UTC)

Much appreciated.--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 00:28, June 19, 2013 (UTC)

Thank you. I just found myself going 3 pages in to find out any more about the item. Take Care.


You, sir, have saved the flotsam page from becoming utter chaos. Thanks :)
---Fuz (talk) 01:36, July 20, 2013 (UTC)


What was the point of deleting the images I posted? They were fine for however many years they have been on this site.

The main reason was that they were not in use on the site. I found them by searching the Wiki for unused images. The pages for the Iga Garb Set and Creed Armor Set already have images. A second reason was that the PNG images you uploaded were transparent PNGs: that is to say, there wasn't actually a white background. The image background was actually transparent so that the image could seamlessly be pasted on top of another image without pasting any background for the image. On certain web browsers, if you mouse over these types of PNG files, you can see a checkered grid of white and blue squares indicating that the image is transparent, and the white background is only a placeholder. These types of images aren't preferred for the wiki, so if an alternative is available, then that image will be used.--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 08:09, July 21, 2013 (UTC)


Understood,thanks.I just got the email recently and thought it was odd the images were taken down after so long.I got them from the official site and no one had seen the full sets at the time so I uploaded them for people curious as to what the sets looked like.I wasn't even aware the background was transparent as I snagged the images and uploaded them as soon as they were up.

Nice to see people are still adding to and editing the wiki.

Hi, Blue Donkey Kong - my husband was researching the items needed for the Gobbiebag question. He was following the item links from to Wikia. He was looking up Oil-Soaked Cloth and when he followed the link from to Wikia he discovered that the page had been deleted by you as a duplicate (url

He had to do a manual search for the information that he needed. It was my understanding that FFXIAH and Wikia were supposed to sort of work hand an hand together - I used to do a lot of contributions on the Answers side of Wikia, so I know there is an Undo/restore. Is there a way for you to Undo/restore that deletion so that the link between and Wikia is not corrupt or have linked to the new Wikia page for Oil-Soaked Cloth?

Thanks in advance


Hello Barb,

I took care of it by making Square of Oil-soaked Cloth redirect to Oil-Soaked Cloth. The reason the page was deleted was because it was a copy of Oil-Soaked Cloth, but under a second name. According to Naming Conventions on this wiki, items are named according to their inventory names, rather than their text description names, so that's why the proper page for the item is Oil-Soaked Cloth. --06:12, July 28, 2013 (UTC)


Thanks so much for the quick response and linking them back together. I find that FFXIclopedia to be the most complete and detailed MMORPG database I've encountered in all the MMO's that I've played - and I know it takes a lot of hard work to keep it that way too. Thanks again!!

Rare template

Should I be using "File:trans-rare.gif" or "Rare2"? I saw my mistake, in that using "Rare" causes the page to show up on the Rare items list. Korvana (talk) 08:46, July 30, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, you should use one of those instead of Template:Rare unless it's an item page that you want categorized as Rare. As for which you use, it can be either one: they're exactly the same, because all that Template:Rare2 does is insert Trans-rare. I'm actually going to start using {{Rare2}} just because it's a lot easier to type. I couldn't recall which template inserted the image without the category, so I was just typing the image's filename.--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 18:23, July 30, 2013 (UTC)

Rune Fencer AF quest

Hello Blue Donkey, so your good at this stuff I wrote out the Rune fencer Sword quest Forging Bonds under the talk section of Endeavoring to Awaken not sure how to start a new page or if I even can but I know your able to thought I would throw this your way if your so interested thanx for your time --Holytank (talk) 05:30, August 6, 2013 (UTC)

Hello Fashnek, Is the issue a wiki-related issue, or hardware-related (for example, PS2 player, or full-screen PC player)? If it's wiki-related, I can help you out.--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 09:35, August 13, 2013 (UTC)

Fixed! I'm extremely grateful you know how to unlock adamantoise--it's been on my mind. Here's a shell of a page for you to create the adamantoise page: Adamantoise (MON)

--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 12:25, August 15, 2013 (UTC)

omg thx allots I was so scared I did something rong omg I feel so good now. I will send you more info on the lizard species now I am adamantoise 67 I will bring to 99

wen you get all 60 monsters like I say and be able to use the adamantoise the quest start to get a adamantoise egg if you bring the egg you get a second adamantoise but small and he can go in other area to level to 99.

lizard>bugard>wivre lvl60 = adamantoise BIG adamantoise egg = adamantoise SMALL plus new area unlock to level adamantoise.

the adamantoise is paladin he got the same ability and all thing the paladin have and magic. all ability and magic open at same level of a regular paladin.

Thanks for the help! Is the smaller adamantoise still named Adamantoise or does it get a new name? --Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 13:43, August 15, 2013 (UTC)

No is same name for the Adamantoise (MON) big and small. the monster traits is the same of the paladin. and the monster skill for Adamantoise (MON) is Head Butt (Adamantoise) Tortoise Stomp Harden Shell Earth Breath Tortoise Song Aqua Breath

The level we got it I don't remember sorry. Now am level 71 Adamantoise (MON).

hello for the Adamantoise blue we need more thing to get it because I am lvl 75 and I trade the 5 scraps and nothing happen.. mabe we need to open raptor at level 50?-60?

hello blue donkey kong you did a post on Blue Adamantoise (MON) . Can you ask the player who did it what level monster he got in lizard monstrosity. Because level 50 Adamantoise (MON) I have no quest open for this and I am 75. the only quest I have is wen I got Adamantoise (MON) at level 1 the npc give me the quest for the Adamantoise Egg he never give me quest to get Genbu Scrap. please can you look it up and send me a tell on this my friend thank you.

I am leveling Raptor (MON) to 50 now. I will try to see if I can unlock the Blue Adamantoise (MON) like this. because Bugard (MON) Lizard (MON) Wivre (MON) and Adamantoise (MON) are past 60 lvl, and I still not got the Blue Adamantoise (MON) quest from Suibhne.

And I forgot to say I try to leave message talk on page Blue Adamantoise (MON) and Adamantoise (MON) and I cant. can you look it up thank you.

I just find out how to get it right the Blue Adamantoise (MON) Level 50 Adamantoise (MON) but you need to be in big form Adamantoise (MON) to get the quest from Suibhne. If you are in small form you well not get the quest from Suibhne.

Sorry for the delay; I was busy today. So it seems the only issue was that you have the be the full size adamantoise then? I added that to Blue Adamantoise (MON)'s page.--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 06:54, August 17, 2013 (UTC)

Hybrid Elementals

Each of the elementals (Byrgen, Gefyrst, Baelfyr, and Ungeweder) have their own subspecies. They are as follows:

My jp is a little rusty but those are the basic translations as best I could do.--Hakrev (talk) 07:57, August 17, 2013 (UTC)

I don't know a lot about Japanese, but those look like nothing more than Japanese versions of the English names. So, I'm guessing that SE doesn't lump them together like we have with the Hybrid Elementals category, and that's been my suspicion for a while: that each of those dual-elementals should be a separate category. BG and ZAM lump them with normal elementals, while GE gives each hybrid elemental type its own category. Considering how Seekers of Adoulin has named them things like Speleothem Ungeweder and Treefrost Gefyrst, I think it would be most appropriate if we split Hybrid Elemental into 4 categories, and turn Hybrid Elemental into a disambiguation page. This would align with what you say about them being separate, and I think keeping them apart from traditional Elementals is useful from an organizational perspective. I'm going to propose a split on Category:Hybrid Elementals now.--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 08:26, August 17, 2013 (UTC)

Here you go, check this page out: That should give you all the subspecies info you need ^^. They have access to a lot more official subspecies then we do as they are released through various magazines, so most of what they say should be correct. The correct classifications break down exactly like this:

       Elemental Ecosystem>>Elementals (original species (normal elementals))
                               >>Birugen (subspecies)
                                    >>Brygen (monster)
                               >>Gefirusuto (subspecies)
                                    >>Gefyrst (monster)
                               >>Beilufia (subspecies)
                                    >>Baelfyr (monster)
                               >>Ungeueda (subspecies)
                                    >>Ungeweder (monster)

--Hakrev (talk) 09:00, August 17, 2013 (UTC)

I was right: if you click those subspecies, you'll see there's a / and then the English name. For example, えらすもす/Elasmoth for the black version of behemoths. For this species, it's, for example, びるげん (Birugen)/Byrgen. So those are just the Japanese versions of the names. So, we have some subspecies classified separately (Snolls/Clusters/Djinn are separate from bomb; Moblin and Bugbear are separate from Goblin on our wiki, for example). So really, they belong in Category:Elementals unless we decide they're significant enough to give the subspecies their own pages, like we did for the four types of Bombs. However, keeping the Hybrid Elementals category, which is not recognized by Square-Enix (or any other FFXI site), shouldn't be an option. So it's either split or merge for the hybrid elementals. What do you think, Hakrev?--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 09:21, August 17, 2013 (UTC)

Oh I think I see it now, good grief they make this stuff confusing, it's laid out better on this page: yep that's the jp names alright. BUT it still means that the brygen, baelfyr, ungeweder, and gefyrst are subspecies of elementals so at least we got something out of it.

I'd say lets merge it with the elemental page to keep it nice and simple. --Hakrev (talk) 09:45, August 17, 2013 (UTC)

cool thx allots yes need to be in big form to get the quest. Now I am Adamantoise (MON) 96 close to 99 best place I find to level to 99 is in Fei'Yin on Sentient Carafe they are pass 99lvl and give me 750-800 on EXP Chain. I will send you post at 99 to tell you what happen. thx bro. --Babedora (talk) 01:25, August 24, 2013 (UTC)

hello is me I finish Adamantoise (MON) lvl 99. nothing happen at 99. ; ; --Babedora (talk) 01:25, August 24, 2013 (UTC)

Don't worry, I bet you'll need 99 Adamantoise to get the HNM Ferromantoise after next update ;) --Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 10:05, August 21, 2013 (UTC)

Hello Blue Donkey Kong I work on Peiste (MON) now and I find a glitch on the Peiste (MON). The monster skills of the Peiste (MON) Calcifying Mist is to strong. I can pull multiple enemy monsters Incredibly Tough and stone them and kill them 1 by 1 whit out get 1 hit. This is bad no challenge nothing. And the skill glue for 5 minutes more so like I say no fun at all. If we can use this skill in arena pvp Peiste (MON) will be the strongest monster. SE have to fix this skill --Babedora (talk) 01:25, August 24, 2013 (UTC).

They probably will fix it if it's that good. They've announced on the official forums that they intend to rebalance MONs for PvP, so that's a guaranteed change in my opinion. By the way, remember to type --~~~~ after your post on a talk page to sign your name. :) --Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 01:02, August 24, 2013 (UTC)

Ive leveled all mobs that can be unlocked at level 30 to level 30 so its not just speculation on what can be done in those areas.

Be sure to let everyone know that the guide continuously gets updated as Im always experimenting! =)

Thanks! ^^


Thank you for correction of Parradamo Tor climbing way. :)

Geomancy Navbox

I just wanted to ask you if something can be done, if it's in you power, about the Spell(Infobox) template, cause it seems that it don't recognised Geomancy as magic type all because is not a category:Geomancy Magic. I'm not so sure the full details on how this template works, just that geomnacey goes red and "page does not exist.

--Wolffeberhard (talk) 23:10, September 17, 2013 (UTC)

I noticed this issue too. Instead, copy and paste what's in the following box when editing a Geomancy article.

{{Infobox Geomancy
| Image = 
| Description = 
| MP = 
| Element = 
| Geomancer level = 
| Casting Time = 
| Recast Time = 
| Resale Price = 
| Notes = 

This template fixes the issue; it automatically enters the job as Geomancer and the spell type as Geomancy, and automatically categorizes the page in both Category:Magic and Category:Geomancy. The only category that needs to be added manually is Category:Scrolls if it's an "Indi-" spell. Currently, only Indi-Languor utilizes the template, but it should be applied to all Geomancy spells, because many of those pages are a mess. --Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 05:18, September 18, 2013 (UTC)

  • Yeah planing to go through them to correct them all as it has been nagging me for a while now. but didn't know how. Now with this i can fix them. thanks for the help.--Wolffeberhard (talk) 11:18, September 18, 2013 (UTC)

Geomancer quest flow issues

Why did you change the Previous Quest & Next Quest info for Elementary, My Dear Sylvie to show For Whom the Bell Tolls?!?! This information couldn't be more wrong. For whom the Bell Tolls pretends to GEO AF and not genkai like Elementary, My Dear Sylvie is. They are two different paths that branches out from Dances with Luopans for the simple fact that one can not move on to the subsequent genkai quests without doing Elementary, My Dear Sylvie if GEO is your 1st job to level all the way to 99. In fact, if GEO is your 1st job to 99, then that means you wouldn't be able to trigger For Whom the Bell Tolls because your job would be still capped by the genkais.

Then we have Previous Quest info for For Whom the Bell Tolls. That is wrong too because this quest doesn't need Elementary, My Dear Sylvie quest to trigger. Even though is not apparent at 1st, due to the fact that Elementary, My Dear Sylvie(@ GEO70 - Genkai) triggers 1st than For Whom the Bell Tolls(@ GEO99 - AF), one can move on into doing For Whom the Bell Tolls without ever doing Elementary, My Dear Sylvie at all. It just gets flagged but doesn't need to be finished for the AF one to start.

In conclusion, the right information as far as Previous Quest & Next Quest info goes for the following quest should be:

Please note that I could have made the changes but I would like you to agree with me before any changes are made about this.--Wolffeberhard (talk) 16:00, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

I appreciate that you didn't make the changes first. The limit break quest is in fact required for GEOs to complete AF. You can still flag limit break quests after completing limit break with another job, and Elementary, My Dear Sylvie takes precedence over For Whom the Bell Tolls. Also, a key character dies in For Whom the Bell Tolls, but he's alive and active in Elementary, My Dear Sylvie, so the game makes sure you complete Elementary, My Dear Sylvie before allowing you to flag For Whom the Bell Tolls. More info on your talk page.--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 22:41, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

Sorry to bother you, but do you know if you have to have the quest flagged or done in order to assist someone with the Deranged Ameretat fight for GEO's AF or can one just help them out even if you haven't done For Whom the Bell Tolls?--Wolffeberhard (talk) 23:24, October 17, 2013 (UTC)

Anyone with access to Morimar Basalt Fields is able to help. :) --Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 15:00, October 18, 2013 (UTC)

In response to your question about Meteor in Monstrosity:

Thank you ^^

Hi Blue I noticed you added info to the tables I made concerning the amount of Obstacles in colonization reives, can you confirm the information you added is correct for every zone because I seem to remember that there are 2 Knotted Roots in Sih Gates not 3 and I'm not sure about the other areas, If your not sure can you either confirm or remove, and I will go back and recheck myself and add that information. Thanks Skyfawn (talk) 04:57, November 20, 2013 (UTC)

  • Edit* Just finished adding a table for Moh Gates and it seems the amount of obstacles are not consistent, 1 reive had 3 and the other had 1 so if you have no objections I am going to remove that info from the tables.

BGWiki copying

Hello, you seem to be the only active administrator on this wiki, so I am approaching you with this matter. There are a few pages on this wiki that have been obviously copy and pasted from original work contributed to bgwiki. Can you please erase these or at least modify them into an original format because proper credit was not given on the pages. If you view the edit history, it is obvious that they are copies.

Obvious copy/pasted pages:

Funkworkz (talk) 21:16, January 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hello, thanks for the message.

The following actions will be taken (long post; hoping to finalize the issue now):

1. Both FFXI wikis (and all wikis under their parent foundations, Wikia and Mediawiki) expressly permit copying and pasting [1] [2] as long as credit is given. FFXIcyclopedia did not give credit. I am adding credit to all of the above pages to fix this issue.

2. Although the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike license does permit exact copying between wikis, I intend to reformat the Coalition pages while retaining credit to BG. Pioneers' Coalition has been remodeled. The others are on my to-do list. This is not necessary according to either Wiki's copyright license; however, the information contained within the coalition pages contained sentences composed by BG editors. Even though this is not necessary because credit has now been given, I feel that BG's users should have their words on their wiki, and we should have our words on our wiki.

3. The Artifact armor pages contain charts copied from BG Wiki. These charts, unlike the information from the coalition pages, contain no user-generated information or phrasing whatsoever; the charts are barebones and inflexible representations of the information within the game. Therefore, reformatting the charts would be frivolous. This is a case in which the allowance of copying/pasting within the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike license is beneficial for disseminating information in a timely fashion.

4. Lastly, I have no desire to see entire articles copied between wikis, even though the licenses allow it. That is why I intend to remodel the coalition pages.

--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 05:41, January 9, 2014 (UTC)

I appreciate your reply.

1. Thank you for adding source links.

2. The pages should be formatted as you are doing so the design matches your layout. The design we had did not look very good here, and was pretty much just a slap in the face to our authors. The new layout you made looks good, and I appreciate you keeping source links on the bottom.

3. I agree, but the format and the work to obtain the data was original to bgwiki. Source links are sufficient if you keep the same design.

4. I completely agree that original works and articles should be unique.

Thank you for understanding and cooperating with us. If you find the same problem on bgwiki, please let me know on my talk page.

Default Wiki Skin

I just looked into making changes to the default skin and the news isn't great. Here's what I found:

  • It's against Wikia's Terms of Use to reduce the size of the borders because they use the background as advertisement space.
  • Wikia has made it impossible to change the default skin to anything other than the "Wikia" skin. You can change it in your preferences, but not site-wide.

I'm beginning to see the logic behind the move to Gamer Escape... ~ Karuberu (talk) 19:39, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

I don't think the majority of the community embraced Gamer Escape, unfortunately.

However, there is a bright light: the monobook format. It's possible set the wiki display to "monobook" in user settings. This essentially makes this wiki's layout look identical to BGWiki: not flashy, but very practical, and it utilizes the full screen. If the community embraces the idea, we could look into having the Wiki default to monobook, even when users aren't logged in. I don't know if this is possible, but it would completely eliminate the width issue. If it is possible, we should hold a vote. --Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 23:49, January 26, 2014 (UTC)

Unfortunately, changing the default to monobook seems to be disabled/prohibited for Wikia-hosted sites (like FFXIclopedia), at least according to what I've read (Tahngarthor could tell you for certain). So it's looking like we're just stuck with what we've got. ~ Karuberu (talk) 00:37, January 27, 2014 (UTC)

Wildstar Online Opportunity?

Hey Blue Donkey Kong,

I'm contacting folks I think could be interested in an opportunity with Carbine studios, the creators of the upcoming Wildstar Online MMO. You can check out their official site if you're curious to learn more about the game:

To give some background, this is one of the occasional Wikia partnership opportunities where we connect users directly with developers in hopes of forging an ongoing relationship. Participants will be about to check out the game early, provide feedback, get some swag, and participate in various events around the game. More importantly, it's a cool opportunity to get a more hands-on relationship with the game creators.

Later this month, we'll be hosting an chat, perhaps with some Carbine folk, to chat about Wildstar Online and brief folks on the opportunity. This is just a first round of outreach, but I always like to reach out to folks we're familiar with first. That being said, if you know any MMO fans out there would might find this interesting, please feel free to put them in touch with me.

If you're interested, let me know via email ( and I'll get you more details as soon as I can!

All the best,

Jorge @fandom(profile)•(talk) 21:39, February 19, 2014 (UTC)

Hello Jorge,

Unfortunately, I have plenty on my plate already with a new job that's triple what I earned before (and that much more work) in addition to my FFXI passion, so I don't have the spare time to adopt a new MMO. I don't even try new game series anymore for fear of being hooked, and that was before my new job.

However, I invite any wiki user on this site with an interest to email jorge ( to let him know if you're interested in taking part in this opportunity!

To Kill Mocking Birds

To Kill Mocking Birds Were you able to get the quest 188? b/c I was not able to get at 198, forgot to check at 200, busy doing quests, so was able to check again at 202 and got quest active then. Just curious is all. --FASHNEK talk/ c

Yes, I actually currently have 188 objectives complete, and I accepted the quest a while back, meaning I may have had fewer objectives at that time. Did you complete Petals of Recollection? Also, a note of interest: I received no message suggesting that I talk to Nantoto when I entered Lower Jeuno, which is what happens for Shifty Shades of Prey, but when I talked to her, I got To Kill Mocking Birds.--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 15:23, April 13, 2014 (UTC)

I had completed everything when I check with her at 198 (Completed) so not sure why it was so late for me then, interesting. Do you know if any more "RoE" quest are/will be available? Currently at 238 and she just tells me "Listen, we've all decided-wided to go to "Insert area here", then tells a phrase about said area. First was Konschtat Highlands and about floating flowers, now Lufaise Meadows and humongous dragon. Just wanting to know if I'm wasting my time going to these said areas. Because I find no ??? or even get a cutscene when I went to Konschtat. --FASHNEK talk/ c

Same mob?

Can someone please verify if Pachypodium (MON) and Enlightened Mandragora (MON) are the same thing? --FASHNEK talk/ c 09:11, April 16, 2014 (UTC)

They're not; DAT mining has revealed them to be separate menu items, but it's possible that Enlightened Mandragora is completely unobtainable at the current time. We don't know for sure. I'm guessing that Enlighted Mandragora is based on the Seed Mandragora, but it's probably just a placeholder in the menu for now. --Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 00:43, April 20, 2014 (UTC)

Wikia is creating an exciting Key Moments of MMO History video that will showcase several amazing games of the genre. We're looking for admins of MMO wikis who would be interested in submitting a short vocal narration about their game of choice.

We want to ask you the question What is the most important moment in Final Fantasy XI's History?

If you're interested, please record an MP3 voice narration of your answer, a few sentences to a small paragraph is fine. If you have no recording software and are still interested, we can schedule a Skype call to record! Please send the finished recording to and you'll be featured in the video to represent your community! Thank you, happy editing, and have a good one!

Dark Spark key item

On Template:Boghertz Quest, it says you have to click the same torch to get the key item. I did a bunch of quests and you get the key item no matter what torch you click after killing Dark Spark. The page is protected, so I'm just pointing this out so you can edit it accordingly. EtherealMutation (talk) 18:46, May 5, 2014 (UTC)

  • Not to nitpick, but you left a typo on the page. It says "Touch the one of the torches again to receive the Shadow Flames.", where it should say "Touch one of the torches again to receive the Shadow Flames." EtherealMutation (talk) 06:16, May 6, 2014 (UTC)
    • Thanks! I'm glad you pointed that out.--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 21:51, May 6, 2014 (UTC)


I noticed that you asked for a verification on Alter Egos's use in Beyond infinity. I have added a post to the talk page regarding my recent experiences.

I found your official forum thread. The fact that no one has testified to being able to use Trust NPCs there is verification enough in my eyes. Thanks for the information!--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 22:03, May 8, 2014 (UTC)

Hey, I'm the dude thats been working on the quest/trial of magians section of this site as of the past few months. It's pretty much all cleaned up and accurate. I believe you are the only moderator, need your help with one thing. On the page Quest Template, can you please remove the quest category from the page. It technically is not a quest; and once this is done, the quest total will match what's available in-game (1079). I'll keep the page updated w/ new quests, and I'll make tweaks here and there, but for the most part, I think it is all accurate to date. Thanks!

Did my reply answer all your questions?

Did my reply answer all your questions about the bond level for Picture Perfect? If not, I'd be happy to discuss it, as I only want valid information in the for not only myself, but everyone. Thank you. --IBHalliwell (talk) 03:26, May 22, 2014 (UTC)

Yes, thanks! I realized: I wonder if you only needed bond because this is the one fellow quest not activated in Jeuno? SE's wording makes it seem that simply entering Upper Jeuno is enough to flag Luto's quests, but maybe not the Selbina one. Keep an eye out going forward.--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 04:05, May 23, 2014 (UTC)

Hello and thank you for your reply! :-) I'll do as you request and keep an eye out for how and when things occur. BTW, do you have any suggestions on a better way for me to present the information I'm gathering on raising my NPC. Maybe just updating the talk:Adventuring Fellow is enough with the updates. --IBHalliwell (talk) 12:25, May 24, 2014 (UTC)

Is a monster level location article/form possible?

Hello, I'm wondering if it would be possible to have a monster leveling form or whatever one might call or implement it. Specifically, what I'm trying to do is locate monsters of a specific level and say in specific area or areas.

When I level it isn't just job level, but also skills and now capacity and job points. An example is finding the monsters who give capacity points in the "original" (base, Zilart, and Chains of Promathia) areas on a consistent basis. Thus far the only place I know to find monsters fitting this bill are in The Boyahda Tree and only three are in a page. The other areas (e.g. Crawlers' Nest) have monsters level range starting below 96.

At one time I used the now dead monsters website. It would be wonderful if FFXIclopedia had a similar ability either as an article or (best) a form. Maybe this isn't possible, but it would be wonderful for users to be able to use it for skilling and/or job leveling up. --IBHalliwell (talk) 04:00, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

I removed the link from your post about FFXI Atlas: more than dead, it eventually became overrun with ads that if accidentally clicked, installed spyware on your PC to steal your account.

But I think you have a good idea again. Currently, Grounds Tome actually has some of the information you want: in addition to The Boyahda Tree, there's also Fei'Yin, Bostaunieux Oubliette, Toraimarai Canal, Kuftal Tunnel, Labyrinth of Onzozo, and Gustav Tunnel.

I still think it would be great to have a guide specifically dedicated to monster level ranges, because not every zone has a Grounds Tome, and because of that, I don't know if the monsters added to AU and WotG areas fit the level requirement, for example. I mainly dedicate my time to quest and mission walkthroughs, Monstrosity content, monster pages, and monster images, as well as formatting, clean-up, and updating information, and I still don't have enough time for all that, so making guides for other content isn't something that I personally do, but if you want to get that page started, go for it. In the meantime, I'm going to add the list of usable old zones for CP to the Job Points page.

Also, the unsigned comment left above by another user was referring to Arkitanx's Monstrosity Level Guide. --Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 05:03, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Request for list of the new Adventuring Fellow topic articles (or whatever you call them).


I wanted to thank you for the reorganization you've been doing on the Adventuring Fellow article and breaking it into specialized articles (e.g. faces, equipment, etc). I'd like to request you provide a list of those articles in the main article or in the talk page. A list would be a lot more help to those looking for and contributing information about our fellows than having to look for these individual files using an hunt and peck approach, while reading the main article. Thank you. --IBHalliwell (talk) 03:36, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Hi, IB,

I think you have a great idea; I'm very busy with my real-life job for the next two weeks, but you are very welcome to implement exactly what you'd like to put in that article. If not, I can add it during the second week of June (possibly sooner).--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 04:47, May 29, 2014 (UTC)

Final Fantasy XI Auction House NOT finding this item, but it is there as "4Lf. Korrin Bud"


I also mentioned this on the talk page for the "Four Leaf Korrin Bud" article. The button / link to the Final Fantasy XI Auction House is NOT working, as it go to an item that does not exist. FFXIAH lists this item as "4Lf. Korrin Bud" and not as Four-Leaf Korringan Bud. So, ah, I'm wondering how do we get it to work properly and still follow the naming methods used here?

Thank you: :-) --IBHalliwell (talk) 01:20, June 8, 2014 (UTC)

Fixed; it seems the item originally had an in-game typo in the name that has been fixed, but we hadn't fixed it here.

The page is now Four-leaf Korrigan Bud and it links to FFXIAH properly. --Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 16:31, June 8, 2014 (UTC)

New Editor

Is this how you do messages on here? if so just wanted to say great working with you and hope I did alright with those pages, first time I have really contributed. -Tetsuji

Yeah, you're pretty exceptional for a new editor. Great job getting us started on the new Alter Egos! Your screenshots for Trust: Lhu Mhakaracca and Trust: Elivira do need to be replaced, because the NPC names aren't displayed. You can retake them if you like, or someone else will eventually. Also, when you leave a message on a talk page, sign it by typing ~~~~ so we know who contributed to a discussion and when.

Thanks for the contributions, and I hope you continue to edit!--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 20:35, June 30, 2014 (UTC)

Alright put up new pictures for both Trust: Lhu Mhakaracca and Trust: Elivira. Thanks again. Tetsuji (talk) 21:05, June 30, 2014 (UTC)

Hi I noticed you renamed the page I created yesterday from H-P Bayled to High Purity Bayld, I just thought you might like to know my thinking behind using the name that shows in when it is in an inventory rather than on the description I went with H-P Bayld because the link to FFXIAH matches whereas High Purity Bayld is a dead link. I figure with your experience with the wiki you might know how to fix this, could you let me know please because I have come across items before that have mis-matched links to FFXIAH and it would be handy to know how to fix this. Skyfawn (talk) 18:40, July 5, 2014 (UTC)

Issue fixed. According to wiki Naming Conventions, the page name should be High-purity Bayld, so that was the reason for the move. Whenever this issue occurs, follow this template:


If it's not in the AH at all, just bazaars, use this:


Thanks for pointing out the issue!--Blue Donkey Kong (talk) 21:45, July 5, 2014 (UTC)

Thank you for reverting it kept not showing the most recent page for myself and a few others so I undid the previous edit which brought it back. The reversion you put up is now showing so it is good and current.

Blanked Pages

I hope I'm leaving this message in the proper place. I complained about blanked pages and you asked which pages have been blanked. It appears I was mistaken. Several pages I've gone to lately appear as blanked but will later load in full. I'm not sure what the problem is but it is apparently NOT a problem on your end. Thanks for getting back to me, though. This is still my preferred reference site for FFXI. I try to update it whenever I have pertinent information to add. Thanks again. ~Zazhi, sylph
