I went 4 time against this monster. first time i got rapped by links, as a 35 whm.. I went today and decided that i needed that drop, went as 49whm/1rng...
so I waited for it to pop the first time... no drop.... waited 1 hr and came back for the spawn..... no drop..... came back for the third time about an hr later, and saw some blm's lvling and walked away for a bit and came back.. they were ko'd, I started casting raise on them and I see VE on my widescan... lol right as i set tracker i see the person i was raising say thank you. and at that moment I say sorry ill brb and that the VE popped.. went back after getting the drop ^^ and saw that they got raised... but that part doesnt matter. all i know is that i got the drop finally ^^b
Yesterday will never come again

To curb the RMT campers from certain items (This one, Leaping Boots, Sniper Ring, and Peacock Charm), they replaced these drops with identical items named differently that are rare/ex (Empress Hairpin, Bounding Boots, Shakiree Ring (sp?), and Peacock Amulet --- respectivly). These new items give the same stats as the old ones. Additionally, the old ones are now available as drops through BCNM fights to give everyone a fair chance at the drops.

Unfortunatly, camping doesnt seem to have changed except for the camper names. Gilsellers have been replaced by hungry players wanting the items. Still lots of competition, but at least you know the drops are getting used by the campers now!

Personally, I treasure myBounding Boots, because noone can say I paid for them. They are mine through hours of killing PH, NM claiming, pleading, praying, crying, and cursing! LOL

Yeah, I know theyre expensive. What I would like to know is if one would be able to obtain an Emperor's Hairpin if they just recently(2 hours ago) obtained an Empress' Hairpin? Can you have both in your possession? If so, im gonna go dominate that Valk Emp again so I can actually make some gil instead of looking cool :)

Side info: -Was a WAR35/THF17.
-Was 1/2 on drop.
-Was eating alotta Goldfish while I camped.

Thanks in advance for answering.

Wow, that sucks man, in Unicorn its half the price of yours, makes me thankful, but what realy sucks is the patch SE made on Lizzy and Emperor, it seems inflation have gotten worse since then. Don't get me wrong, I like that they made it rare/ex, until i figured out that gil sellers would up prices on other NM drops. its hard to lvl up my nin when I can't afford this new overly priced crap, along w/ having to spnd gil on tools, I basicly blame the Inflation on SE a little, and gil seller/buyers ALOT. Something need to be done soon and fast, or SE will lose alot of FFXI players.
Squire Enix said a couple months after the Valkurm Emperor, and Leaping Lizzy patch.."Let's make the drop rate suck even more so they'll spend weeks at these NMs and STILL not get a drop, that way they're taking thier time w/ the game and we're racking up thier money. Not only that, It'll help the Inflation get even worse! Lets start doing this, immediatly!"

As much as I despise the gilsellers (primarily for the 24/7 camping on mobs that have drops that players need), you can't blame the inflation on them -- it's primarily the structure of the FFXI economic system. You have a million people farming, gardening, logging, mining (etc.) all of which brings new value into the system, and there are very limited means to remove the excess value (AH tax, sales by NPCs, turning in guild items being the main ones available). So, it's built into the system, unfortunately. The only way to cure inflation is to take more money out of the system; like IRL, the central banks adjust the interest rates up, add various taxes, etc., and very little of this sort of activity is possible in the game. How would the players react, for example, if the Jeuno AH tax were moved to 40% from 10%, and the city AHs had a 10% tax instead of the current minimal charge? In fact, I suspect (much to my dislike) that the gilsellers perform a positive economic role in making articles available, since they often are the most efficient "producers" of the articles in question and bring more to the AH than otherwise would be the case. Meh, just rambling thoughts in response to "gilsellers cause inflation" ideas -- gilsellers actually cause frustration, not inflation.

One of the simpleist things se can do to cut the rate of inflation wiould be to expand the list of past ah sales to 25 or 50. Most importantly it would interfere (sp?) with people who price jack, i.e. people who buy/sell something through a group pf friends to raise prices. Mainly because people wouldn't pay such cost increases if they could see how prices had progressed and how the prices were just a day or two ago.
