Description

A perfect minature reconstruction of Ghelsba Outpost created by the great mage Abdhaljs hidden on an island somewhere in the Tavnazian Archipelago. The Diorama was created by Abdhaljs for Conflict so that players could enjoy private matches of Ballista. Anyone wishing to use the Diorama is shrunk down to a fraction of their normal size by the forbidden magic "Mini" and transported there.

Points of Interest

  • Ballista matches can be fought here. See page for further information on that activity.

Ok so here's the scoop. went and got 100 ballista points and rented this field... ok so this was a whitebook edition... but i was MC so i set the matches and stuff ok cool. So we go ahead and run a match it goes well enough. I decide to run and change my job (which is free if the matches are set up propperly) Ne who so my one friend gets a bad case of ADD and decides to take over the role as MC... would have been ok if he would have told me first, and would have been even better if the f'n thing didn't jew me by not letting me get my rightfull MC job back. I mean come on i payed the Ballista points.. it was complete BS. So i got ****** threw away my book and logged out... actual i might even decided to go to my friends if he ever does one and jew him... It so rediculous. If found 5 glitches in the past 2 days, SE can lick my *** crack. Don't believe me go do a run with a pladin in BCNM 20 Wings of fury, have him 2 hr and watch him die immediatly. Or what about the AH error? Gold arrowheads can only be sold singlely in jueno and in only in stacks in sandy... I'm about ready to quite for good!

Enter the Reserve Ballista at Diorama Abdhaljs.

I actually learned alot here playing Ballista with fellow LS then the normal 3 ballista zones. This is great for new people to ballista.

But I learned being a rdm makes you enemy #1. Ninja and rng don't like me now.

I <3 this. XD


Eh, I'm too lazy to get up and walk down the steps of the Grand Duke's Palace and talk to the NPC, but their name is Tillecoe and at (I-8), I think. You talk to them to reserve a time slot. I don't know the details on that, because it was a friend of mine who did it. ^^;

As for participating, though... You have to be given a page by the MC[Master of Ceremonies... being the person who reserved the area]. It's the MC who sets the conditions for the matches[ie: level cap, items, etc].

After the MC has given you a page from the book, you trade it to the NPC who'll send you to this area. When there, you then trade the page to the Herald to get started.

From there, it's just a normal match...

So long as a person has a page for the specific time slot, they can join at any time. [I happened to join during the second hour, mid-way through the match.]

Upon entry of your first time there, you receive the map in your key items. ^^

>.< I hope I cleared up some stuff for anyone who wants to know. I like this because it's kinda like... ballista at your fingertips. ...kinda.


Edit:
So anyway, I reserved my own match... I have more details that I feel don't belong on this page... but I'm putting them here anyway.

You go to the NPC and you can choose to reserve a two-hour slot two days in advance, or the current two-hour slot.. I chose the current.

So... It costs 200 Ballista points to reserve a slot. You, the MC, are given the rules book [whitebook o_O thing] and you can go to it from your items list and hit "Use" to create pages. You give those pages to the people you want to enter your match. Also, the people who have pages can go to "Use" and create more pages.

You trade the book to the NPC and they take you to the area. Trade the book to the Herald there and you can proceed to set up the match settings and whatnot. Then you may begin the entry period... and when you choose to begin the game.



Yay for me typing too much.

The key item for the Map of Diorama Abdhaljs - Ghelsba Outpost is part of the gamedata now, so receiving the map should be possible now.
Additionally, new items: the Ballista Redbook, and the Ballista Whitebook, have been added, which were "transcribed by the great Abdhaljs." There are also two other items, Redbook Page, and Whitebook Page, which suggests that activating the new Ballista in Diorama Abdhaljs requires retrieving at least one of these books and retrieving the pages missing from the book. I haven't flagged any quest yet from Excenmille or any Persuviants I've talked to so far, but maybe YOU can...

I have believed this ever since I saw the map, but to those who disbelieve, start believing. Look at this:

Special ballista. I'm going to assume it's another dimension, (or maybe just a replica of ghelspa^^) where you get to arrange the time of match and level cap. You may also have to invite people for them to be able to join, or set it to anybody welcome.

Private area for Ballista?

well, I just went to the Final Fantasy XI page to look for any new info regarding the update, and lo and behold! special ballista areas, and the picture reminds me of ghelsba outpost. with an orc hut and banners, et al.
So, i believe this area, Diorama abdhaljs-Ghelsba, to be a special Ballista only field, with no Mobs. another hint is the fact that the describtion on the FFXI page says you need CoP to access this field, and we all know that the diorama area intrigue started with CoP.
Anyway, that's my two cents, take it as you will ^.^

diorama (d&#299;'&#601;-r&#259;m'&#601;, -r'm&#601;)

1. A three-dimensional miniature or life-size scene in which figures, stuffed wildlife, or other objects are arranged in a naturalistic setting against a painted background.

2. A scene reproduced on cloth transparencies with various lights shining through the cloths to produce changes in effect, intended for viewing at a distance through an aperture.

This will not be 'A Dynamis', if/when implemented, for the sheer reason that there's a map of it (that I would assume someone nabbed from a .dat somewhere). Dynamises have no map, and you are always at <pos> (?-?). There are also no maps for the current Dynamises, even yanked from .dats. They just so happen to have the exaxt same layout as the zones they take place in, so easy to follow. The pic of the map here is listed as Diorama, so... idunno.

What I am *hoping* these end up being, is like a private dungeon for a PT/Alliance/Group to wander, like a dynamis... only for EXP, instead of praying for AFv2 drops and dying repeatedly ^^;
Between the possibility of these zones and {sea} there will probably be a lot of new places to go over the next many patches, likely at many different level ranges. ****, we just got ENM which is good loot/gil and EXP (if you do them a lot), and that was almost a last-minute add to the patch we hadn't known about.

It seems that this will be in relation to Chains of Promathia... I bet it'll be like mini-dynamis, which I'm excited abuot... Go in as a lvl 10 LOL! Well, if that's the case, I hope it's higher than 10! I hope it's more like 40-50...

There might be trail markings somewhere in Ghelsba.

Could somebody try trading a perpetual hourglass to the goblin footprint? That might being you here...

Or maybe something like sky access to wierd new dynamis areas...

It may be so, but I'm gonna guess that Dyanamis - San d'Oria, etc. have the same map as their cities. When I first clicked this, I expected there just to be a map of Ghelsba... But at the top it says:

Diorama Abdhaljs

~Ghelsba Outpost~

So that can almost prove that it does or will exist.

I am curious as to waht enemies there are here. Probably the smae low level Orcs we have come to know and loathe. But then again this is a new area so it's probably got Uber stuff like level 99 Orcish Gods called Gork and Mork

level 10 war zones to gheslba
level 10 war finds the zone to diorama abdhaljs
level 10 war finds an orcish brawler
level 10 war dies to the orcish brawler

wouldn't that be weird if they threw a dynamis-esqe ghlesba in there....
