Requesting Info - Even Match MobsFollow

#1 Feb 20 2011 at 9:23 PM Rating: Excellent

I am trying to get an accurate accounting of what monsters throughout Eorzea are actually ranked. In order to accurately update the Database, here's what we need:

* Your rank.
* Zone you're in - (if possible be specific like Eastern Thanalan rather than just Thanalan)
* What the monster cons to you. Please only post if they con green, yellow (preferably yellow!) or orange. No blues or reds, please.

We need as much input from you guys as possible! Even if the mob in question already has a listed rank range.
* Must be solo when you con them.
* Must not be a guildleve mob.
* Must not be a behest mob.
* Again, please don't post blue or red con.

Please leave comments in the NPC / MOB Database at that mobs appropriate page. If you con a monster and that mob does not have a zone attatched to it in it's DB page, or does not have the zone you found it in, leave that in your note too. Smiley: cool Also, please be aware that yellow = even match. It did not used to be this way, but SE ninja edited their con system a while ago.

Rate-ups to those who contribute usable information!

I will start in Thanalan and try to provide as much information as possible. I am very interested in getting -at least- this information accurate.

Excellent idea Osarion. Will you add this to the monster database somehow?

I'll try and contribute to the list soon.

EDIT: I see! Post directly to the mob's page.

Yep! When people post comments in NPC / Mob, Item, Recipe, Quest, Wiki and Guildleve pages, we're able to see them (and can filter/mark as read as Admins) via the New Comments Page. So all the info that people post will be right at hand when we look at the new comments.

So it seems that there are multiple ranks of Yellow Con. Going to Mistbeard Cove at R35, I was killing Orobon -all of which conned yellow to me, but gave 4 different SP gains between about 20 mobs I killed-. Has anyone found any info or done any extensive testing on this? One would think that Yellow, being Even Match should be your rank only. But it doesn't seem to be.

Also, please keep the info coming regarding the OP! Thanks to those who've contributed so far!

I'd consider reading this if I were you. It's the link from the Party SP thread. It shows through testing that colors definitely have ranges.
