Just wanted to let everyone know there is hope for dunes parties in the future. Once Dancer hits 15, you can use 2 as effective front line healers (just like SE says). Combined with a Ninja main tank, the combination is unbeatable.

Funnest party I ever had yesterday, me (DNC), DNC, SAM, PUP, BLU, and NIN. First roaming PT I've ever had, and there was no downtime at all, even when three gobs in a row decided to drop three bombs in a row, at the beginning of each fight. XD

My favorite strategy when trying to lvl here around lvl 9-13 is to seek party in La Theine Plateau or Konschtat Highlands. It helps kill time while waiting on a party, and you gain xp while waiting.

Also when in a party with a PL, if you are a WHM, you should spend your time spamming Banish for skill-ups, because its very hard to skill it up at my lvl (44WHM). Just trying to keep hate balanced if you do this method, especially if a WHM Taru with low hp.
Useful & Cheap Equipment for the Dunes
# Jan 11 2007 at 4:42 PM Rating: Decent
If you're going to party at the Dunes, you're probably going to be working mostly on Snippers and Pugils. That being the case, it would be useful to have gear that gives you Water protection.

The Silver Name Tag is usually used to finish the Bastok quest Fallen Comrades. However, it is a piece of Neck Armor that gives Water+5 protection. You can usually pick up one of these in Bastok or Jeuno for around 500 to 800 gil.

The Shell Earring is a low level crafted item in Bonecrafting. Not only does it provide Water+2 protection but Fire+2 as well. You can buy these from the Bonecrafting Guild in Windurst for around 550 to 850 gil (depending on your fame).

Putting these together gives you a Water+9 level of protection (+5 for the Name Tag and +4 for 2 Shell Earrings) for less than 2,000 gil. This protection will help you alot when fighting Snippers and Pugils when they light up with their AOE.

One added bonus is that once you make level 20, you're probably going to Qufim Island next. When you get there, you're probably going to spend most of your time fighting Clippers and Pugils so you still get the water protection benefit and you didn't have to spend another gil!

I hope this is helpful. Good luck and good hunting.

The dunes.. ****. Yes.. This is the worst of the worst.

Lvs. It is possible to get in to partys here at 10. I dont recomend that you do this. Unless your a blm or tfh. Why. Cause thouse jobs are very hard to solo at 10.

For all other Jobs.at lv 11 i would recomend to continue to solo till 12-14. You will get better xp in dem or holla @ solo. Or if possible. Duo. it kon. highlands. Sheep are very good xp duo till 13.

Here are the mobs to fight and what lv its best to kill and where good camps are.

lv 10~ M-10. around this area is your only option. Kill lizzys. Stay away from every thing else.

Lv 11~ M-10 Same as above.. Some weak Gobs are ok.

LV 12~ M-10 More gobs are good. Star Bats are an option.

LV 13~ M-10 Same as 12. But lizzys are really not good. Ok to be on lower end of clippers

LV 14~ J-9 I-7{aka oasis} I-10 (First Beach-Siren Sands) Basicly is snippers. Yeah they suck. A blm is really really nice.

LV 15~ Same areas Still need a blm . Mabey a few damselflys and a few weaker gobs.

LV 16~ G-7 (The outpost)Flys and Gobs. thats about it here.

LV 17 ~ D-5 or D-6. (Gob HIll) Its all good here. This is the easyest few lvs in the dunes. Unless you had a blm for clippers.

LV 18 ~ Gob Hill. Milk this ****.

LV 19 ~ Siren or white bone. Secret Beach. For pug's. (Fish) These really suck. I would recomend at 19 to go early to jeuno. Worms is qufim are much much better. and at 20 fish.. are not worth the efort. and at 19 its the same.

Other Lving options. The dunes does have alternatives that i feal are better at alot of lvs.

10-11 Maze of sharkari (spelling) Maze makers. Worms.. Worms are best xp in this game.
12-13 bubu Penisula. On the windy side of things. Mandys (selvester) really are very very good xp..
14-16 Korokal Tunnle. Out side of bastock. More morms. More worms.
17-18 Bettle Camp in Sau. Champane. Just behind the weapon camp, Only 4 bettles here. But i think that gobs are better in the dunes at this lv. but that camp can only support 2-3 partys.
19 Qufim Island .. WORMS.

Other Info.

The ??? on whitebone os a spawnewd NM for Merciful Kris. A ok tfh weapon that is really good or not all that if you ask around. Its not tfh exculsive, but rdm can't use at end game so i rate it down. mostly cause tfh has other possible better options.

The swiling vort. After you finish The prommy missions for the cop expansion. It is the entrance to lufuasa meddows. Its the way to a town called Tavanse (Spelling) Its the city in the intro cutsceen

NM . theres 2 nm here. One is valk. Emp. everyone is there to kill this. Drops thge best head item for lv 24-50 ish depending on the job. prob best head item till ohat. thats like lv 70.
And gold bat.. drops night cape. its ok. theres better though.

What else is there. The map. Buy it in selbena. The secret beach is of the map. its past the gob camp. Also there is a zone there to gustave tunnle.. lots of rmt there, and a ok spot to lv like 50 ish some where in there.

the song runes.. are for the bard adv job. need to be 30+ for this. start in jeuno. there guides on this. and the ??? on secret beach. Is for whm af1 some lv 41 club .

anything else just ask

75 BRD 75 RDM 75 THF 75 SMN 75 BLM
65 WHM 60 RNG

ok someone help me out with this one. i am sitting in the dunes camping VE. and i see this NM's name on wide scan. i can remember the full the name but it start with HUU the ****** ********. something like that. it was a very long name. and when i got there there were 3 high lvl JP players standing next to a dead mob that looked like a "Sea Monk" and there was an open chest there too.
this NM does not come up on this site or on killingifrit. anyone know what this thing is? just curious.

PL PTs in VD

Is it me, or is it darn near impossible to get in a pt in the Dunes that does not have a PL? Or is it eveywhere (I'm a lv16 WHM/BLM at the moment)?

It seems all too acceptable (and even expected) to pt with a PL. Am I wrong or does this really suck? As a WHM, I end up pretty much just sitting there, not needing to really pay attention, hitting sporadic Cure I's on the guy the PL forgot about for a minute, hoping to sneak it in there before the PL throws him a Cure II and restores him to full HP only to see my little "baby-Cure" heal for 1 or 2 HP, etc.

Last night (on Titan server - and, believe me, this has been frustrating for weeks for me, not just last night) I finally get in a PT that has no PL. I had actually checked with the ldr before I joined, adding "I'd rather not join a PL pt" or something to that effect. I had also turned down like 3 invites due to PL already. Anyway, about 500 legit XP into the pt and BOOM, A PL shows up. So we're getting 20-50 more XP per kill (somethimes not even that). Yippee. Everyone else in the pt seemed to love it. I didn't. The PL basically took my job, using Cure III's(!), even Protectra...

Is it that people just don't want to learn how to play? Has a new way of "playing" evolved? Because it's certainly a drastically different game with and w/o a PL. Anyone with positive or negative thoughts on PLs? To me, PL also stands for pretty lame...sorry this kind of turned into a rant...oh well.
Everybody in this room, have motive for killing Mr. Taylor. But Mr. Taylor only have one killer, and the name of that killer is...

I know this reply is a little late, but feel it should be put out there anyway

I had the same problem leveling whm in Valkurm Dunes, but I came up with a good solution... I fell back on my subjob, which is RDM, tho this should apply to any sub for whm. I just sat and debuffed/occasionally Banished till the fight was over. was I doing my job as whm? no, the pl was doing my job. but I *WAS* pulling my weight, and I know from the fights where I was tapped that my spells were making a huge diff. know your strengths and weaknesses, and if on strength is taken away due to a PL or too many whm in pt or whatever, just fall back into another role. No job is so specialized that they can be made totally useless, specially when you have a sub.

Just my 2 cents on that one ;)

A good sub job for a THF is Monk and Warrior.There both good for a THF.I would go with the Warrior if I was you becase a WAR can do more
damage.But the MNK has better Defence and more HP.Also you
should be levels 10-20 in valcrum dunes.

as for anyone seeing lvl 1 thf's running into selbina.....i can almost garuntee its for the "only the best" quest or whtevr its called, ive been doing it for the past two days now and i have HP set at outpost and i go to windurst buy cabagges or millioncorn and go die as a lvl 1 thf which brings me to my HP then i go trade everything in and get fame. ppl only use thfs cuz if they get aggro on the way back they can use perfect dodge and hope it doesn't wear off. its pretty helpful for the warp scroll quest which is the main reason im doing all this.

if you need a lvl 17 BLM message dirtbiker cuz im gunna be lvling up soon

Out in Whitebone Beach there is a new ???. If you check this question mark, you are told about sea travellers who died in Valkrum Dunes and if you return a "vestage of the dead" to the sea something good might happen.

I noticed this new ??? while leveling BRD there and on 3 seperate occasions I saw people go up to that ??? and a Barnicled Chest appeared. These people would open the chest and then go on their merry way.

Just some heads up... S-E added something new there.

I've always gone to the dunes around LvL 10 and fought Rabbits and Lizzies. But yeah i do agree that no one should be out here befor 10. And certain jobs shouldnt even be out there then, such as most mages. I always start as a tanking job, such as a War, and recently a NiN, and i got a PT within seconds of being in the konschtat highlands.

Oh and sorry about the Edit. I had originally pressed enter befor i had actually posted a body. ^.^

if you ever need a PT send me a tell

Some people are honestly idiots on Midgardsormr. recently i have seen a LOT of lower levels in the dunes. like level 9 and below and even a level 1 theif..who i followed suprisingly all the way to Selbina! Its fun to watch these people try to get parties. Personally i agree with EzraOfSylph best to get to like level 13ish first u get parties easier.

I used to hate this palce. Mainly, because I was a low level war and nobody would invite me. Well I came back at lv 13 and wow the amount of suers on the beta server have skyrocketed. I did a search and found almsot 500 users there. Anyways nowadays as a lv 16 war I can easily find a party, infact soemtiems I log on and ahve an invite. I really never felt weak, I feel as though the game is good with parties.

That is used by trading a map obtained from the "Indside the Belly" Quest. it will cap your level to 20 and you will fight 3 NM Pugils. One known drop is Mercurial Kris.

Now here is my question: Has anyone figured out the use for the Hieroglyphs behind a rock which is located behind the outpost by the goblin hunting camp?
Natural to the Universe is Oblivion, which is in itself the Universe. Through the art of Nothingness, one may harness the power of destruction, and rebirth. In the shadows... it waits.

i just happened to be reading past this and saw the swirling vortex questions so here goes...

after getting chains of promathia you have to complete promyvion mea, holla and dem which are capped at lvl 30 after that is done you may use the swirling vortex to access lufaise meadows from the dunes or qufim island

Hope that helps

Also after entering lufaise meadows your lvl will be capped to 40

I have made my 4th trip to the DUne recently. I am starting to hink it has redeeming characteristics. I am in Qufim now, but my time in DUnes was fun and exciting. =)

your certianly right, the dunes is one of those places that makes you realize how weak your character is, but yet how fast you can become great (again?).

In the dunes, i'm sure you're all aware of, there are 3 zones inside/hidden in caves. One of these zones is on the secret beach, one on siren sands, and there's a vortex on whitebone sands. where does this take you? if someone could give me some info before my newbish side gets the better of me and takes me wandering and raped by some lvl 95 mobs.

I’m bored, so I’ve decided too make a guide for both Valkrum and Qufim^^

Bobvob’s Guide to Valkrum:
Levels: you go here from levels 11ish-20 for most jobs

Info: first real parting zone, most people wont have a clue what there doing at first, lol so get ready to see whm/war and war/blm

Nicknames: The Dunes, Valkrum, D00ns (my favorite), N00b land, **** (lol)

Konshcat zone: place near the konshcat zone, away from every thing else, tunnel divides this from everywhere else
Beaches: Siren Sands and White bone sands
Cliff: I-8-ish
Outpost: the outpost, wow
Secret Beach: go to the top left of the map, you see a cave, go through the cave with at least 2 other ppl to kill the bats
Oasis: place with trees in the middle of nowhere

Levels 11-13: Konshcat zone, lizzys, goblins
-to get through the cave you have to get past SAND BATS, these agro: my trick to getting past them... let another n00b walk right in front of them!! (Mean, yes, but it works, no joke, its called social Darwinism, lol j/k)

Lvl 14-15ish: Cliff, Beach, fight snips, bring a blm

Lvl 15-17: Oasis- crabs, flies, flies are nasty, bring lots of healers

Lvl 17-18: go around D-7 and kill goblins

Lvl 18-20 Pugils, be ready to die, set HP in Selbina at all costs!!!

Subjobs: you get Subs at 18.
Client: old elvaan guy called Issaco
Items: Damselfly worms, monster: Damselfly’s
Crab apron, monster: Snipers (crabs)
Magicked Skull monster: Ghoul (dead
skeleton things)
Subjobs Description:
A subjob allows you to enhance your main job with abbilities and spells of another job...
What subjobs to use in the early levels:
Warrior should sub Monk
Monk should sub Warrior
Whitemage should sub Blackmage
Blackmage (see above)
Redmage can sub White or Black mage
Thief should sub warrior, mabye mnk... but warrior is better

T3h Bogy’s... they will kill you!!! No matter how many people you have and no matter what Level you are!!
You know what a bogy is because they look loke giant baloon ghost thingys...

AFTER VALKRUM: at level 20 you head North to Alask.. um... i mean Qufim, and better yet, JEUNO!!! chocobo license and all!
(go to dangruf wadi and kill rabits for a certain type of plant if your cheap, the plants for the chocobo quest were 600 at the AH when i did it, now there 2000!

Edit for spelling:
Edit for content:

Well, i guess thats about all for Valkrum... now to work on Qufim some more... tell me if you see any mispelling (which there will be alot of) or additional info... Thank you

Actually, I prefer to party at Buburimu peninsula than in Valkurm Dunes. When I was with my set pt, we use to go to Buburimu, the lvl is similar but less people and we did it better than in Valkurm. Just and opinion...

You may be referring to the WHM AF1, but it's been so long I can't remember what that does. In any event you likely can't do anything about it until you level up a ton.
Pls send theya (on Asura) a tell calling her one of the following... ^^ ty for your support.

Valkurm Glitch?

Am I the only one who knows about this!?!? I can't be, but know ever knows how I do it. You can go under the water in the dunes and walk way down the map where your not supposed to. You can even walk around the back of Selbina! Someone showed it to me one day and i havn't seen anyone do it since, and there are no posts about it. For those who do not know how to do it, here is a hint. You have to do it from Whitebone, not Siren sands.

I called a GM about it and he told me that "this is not good" and "we cant let that happen" so i haven't any idea if they are going to do something about this glitch... futhermore, he asked me if there was "anyone in the water" at the time... i said "no" so he did nothing... but did thank me for letting them know and to make a formal submission to the Glitch department on PlayOnline...

Aw, come on. Glitches are fun, why did you tell a GM. That sucks.
You may be laughing now, but will you be laughing when I come out from under your bed?

Reporting glitches to the GMs: Makes you look good, and possibly rewarded.

Knowingly using glitches and not reporting them: Bad.

Exploiting glitches and not reporting them: Very bad.

Games have banned people for exploiting glitches and not reporting them. (Trust me. I've been on the admin team in one. Disclaimer: I an not an employee or volunteer GM for SEI.)

Noob Question

Question from a noob -> In the south-east corner of this map (K-9) there is a 'break' from the mainland of the Dunes and an apparent entrance to Konschtat Highlands. Being a noob (and only visiting this place once before) I was wondering if it is possible to get directly across to Konschtat Highlands from here or if that's another entrance altogether.

I had been wondering the same thing. ^-^;
But yesterday I went through those two areas, and the break in the map is simply a tunnel, so yes, you can get through right from Valkrum toward the entrance to Konschtat.

I've seen two posts asking what the swirling vortex does or where it leads, and neither were answered. I'm also wondering where it leads and how you use it, if someone could be kind enough to answer this i would be greatful.

When i Graduated from Valkrum, I wanted to do two things.

1. Explore Valkrum Dunes
2. Help people.

I have done both.

The Vortex are for Missions and or quests, that take you to some where. Thats all I know. A hint was had in Jeuno by talking to some guard NPCs, that the land was going to **** in a hand basket and the vortexs were a symtom of that.
swirling vortex??
