Notes (Valkurm Dunes)

  • Average spawn time is approximately 1-4 hours.
  • The true placeholder that appears on Widescan is the top Damselfly in the group of four between the Snippers and Thread Leeches.
  • Placeholder respawn time is exactly 5 minutes (2 hours and 7 minutes Vana'diel time).
  • Wide Scan II can reach all possible spawn points for both the placeholders and Valkurm Emperor if used by the palm trees in the lower-left corner of (F-8). Use either level 1 Ranger or level 20 Beastmaster as your Support Job.
  • Will link with other flies in the area, and the flies will link with Valkurm Emperor.
  • Valkurm Emperor itself appears as the last listing before the Thread Leeches on the Widescan list in the same set of four as the placeholder.
  • Soloable by all jobs at level 35 and by most jobs at level 30, with some difficulty; Duoable by Beastmaster at level 25. (see testimonials)
