In-Game Text


In Port Jeuno start at the left covered stairway, as you are heading towards the docks, is a npc(dont remember name) standing in the corner there.

He will explain about monsters being trapped inside orbs that have eaten treaure. He explains on how to summon the creature, he tells you that if you take one of these orbs to a burning circle in either giddeus, ghelsba or palborough mines, and trade it to the burning circle, you will summon the creature within. He will give you a different orb for the amounts of 40, 50 and 60 beastman seals that you trade him. After you have traded him for one of the orbs, it may seem as if it cant be done again, but just trade him more seals and he will give you one of the other orbs. I dont think that you can get the same orb again.

The caption included with each orb is about the level cap for the creature within the orb. The level cap is the same thing as how many seals you give them for the orb.

I.E. 40 seals= Lvl 40 cap for creature.

Orbs are called Star Orb, Moon Orb and Comet Orb.

Does everyone with you have to have an orb or just one orb for a run?

Pretty much everything drops the seals. I was fighting a DC rabbit in Battalia Downs and it dropped one. Just as long as it's a EP or higher.

you do know that there is an orb with level cap 20 right? didn't see a single post mention this... for instance i know the one in Ghelsba is a group of **** whoopin bats called furries. And the pt size is limited to 3 players. (almost beat those bloody bats with me whm/blm, a smn/whm, and a thf/war.... if only the thf had taken a job that coulda kept the hate better.... one more blood pact and we woulda won >.<)

Most people seem to overlook the fact that there are BCNM's below 40, since the general opinion is that the treasure won from 20 and 30 isn't worth the fight. *shrug* Personally, I wasn't as concerned about the winnings from those fights as much as I was with just having the personal satisfaction of knowing that I'd won the fights. Smiley: smile But yeah, you do have a point..there is BCNM life below lvl 40. Smiley: grin

Did the lvl 40 BCNM in grotto 6 times last night. Very easy fight. Everyone in group brought their own star orb and whoever turned in hte orb for that turn got all the loot from that time. We had a whm,blm, and 4 beastmasters. ONe of the beastmasters makes a pet, then BLM does elemental seal and sleepga. The 8 cottontail will go to sleep and just the boss will stay awake. The 1 beastmaster that has a pet puts it onto the main mob, and the other beastermasters charm the sleeping cottontails and attack the boss with them. The the beastmaster with the summoned pet releases it and charms another cottontail. The four cottontails will kill the boss and then they can put them onto the other 4 cottontails. BLM only job is to use sleepga over and voer again on any rabbits that wake up. WHM with blm sub helps with sleeps and heals if anyone gets in trouble. This worked 6 times in a row last night with no deaths. I got the erase scroll,ice spikes scroll, oak log, thunder mantle, and druid's belt during my round.

You keep the orb, but it is not useable again. The only indication of this is that when you go back and trade the orb to the Burning Circle, you get a message that says that the orb is cracked. If you want to save the trouble of having to head back up to the Burning Circle when your orb won't work, you should just Drop the orb as soon as you lose after trading it. Just remember that the only orb that cracks is the one that was traded to the Burning Circle.

Ok, these conflicting posts have me confused about a few things...

1) If I lose in a BCNM fight, do I still have the orb?

2) If I use the Comet Orb in Giddeus and pick the wrong box, do I still keep the orb?

3) If my party wins a BCNM fight, how is the loot distributed? The usual lotting?

4) How many items do you get for winning? Do I get the same number of items if I do the Comet Orb in Giddeus as I would with a full party doing a different one?

so, you could get a star orb, then go to a circle and use it for a guess at the three treasure chests. If you miss the first try, you could still come back again to the same circle and try once more?
Interesting, very interesting...
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 11 2004 at 4:05 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Choose your party members carefully. For BCNM40 be sure to be lvl 40+ with some exp buffer because usually first timers will die.

I did the comet orb one, picked the wrong box, died. And now I can't use my orb anymore, can't try again as I thought I'd be able to. I died with my blm, died with my whm, spent about 2000+ gil to get to durst, and now I can't try again, really makes me want to quit this game. As if 50 seals isn't already hard enough to aquire, they have to ***** you....

I tryed this out today with a group from my ls and god its hard. we tryed bcnm with lvl 40 cap the one near sandoria not sure of the area name but anywa it was a hole bunch of rabbits. proboly 6+ small ones and 1 white large rabbit. we attacked the white one to get it out of the way everyone using 2hours and such and got it down 1/4th the way down then were killed by the rest of the rabbits in matter of seconds after they woke up from sleepga. got any hints on pt's or how to win these?
RE: bcnm
# Feb 15 2004 at 6:56 PM Rating: Default
I got a few hints, first off
Don't try to kill the strongest one first... kill the weak ones, because they hit about 1/2 as hard as the big one, and they are much much easier to kill. So sleepga everything, clean up all the small ones, and than kill the big one, otherwise you try to kill the big one and have all these little ones nabbing at you, slowly killing you while yet you haven't even stopped the damage flow to your party. Kill from weakest to strongest

Take a Red Mage and Bard with you. The RDM will have Refresh to keep the mages with constant mp, and the Bard will have Horde Lullaby to keep the minions napping while you hammer away at the main guy. What you were doing sounds good, just should have had the BLM keep casting sleepaga as soon as he can to keep the bunnies sleeping.

Red mage won't have refresh. It is level 41. The cap is 40.

But the bard, if he's any good, will have mage's ballad, which is a mini-refresh. BRD is better than a rdm at this level as far as buffing.

You need to use a Comet Orb for the boxes, NOT a Moon Orb. That's why you got the orcs

Since you get a one in 3 chance of not fighting why not take the orb as a lvl 1 then it dont matter if you die??

Take your Comet Orb to the circle in Giddeus, use it and you will be presented with a choice of 3 boxes...Small, Medium, or Large...choose the right box and u win...choose wrong and you will die unless you have a full party or some serious badasses with you. This is the only way to solo an orb.

i did this today with a naked lv32 blm. my first time through, i picked the right size (it was small btw) and i received 1000+ gil, lv50 mnk ring, and a gold ore. all together i can sell for 20k. not bad for 30 min of chocobo and walking.

(WHAT LUCK! Im only lvl 26 i would have had my *** creamed to the floor) i opened it to get Raise II, Sorcerer's Ring, 1836 Gil

# Dec 30 2003 at 12:11 PM Rating: Default
Don't even begin to consider trying to kill one of these NM's unless you've got a full party right at the cap. Party configurations should be seriously considered based on the NM that spawns (one of them, for instance, is this nifty bomb-type where you'll actually want a party of 5 RDM/SMN's and yourself to take it down).

Loot is all high-quality, super-rare, and quite desirable. Each orb can be used at all 3 locations, though the monster that you call is different for each location (eg, Giddeus and Ghelsba have different lv40 BCNM's). Loot varies based on orb and location.

You obviously think you know a lot more about these than you actually do.

There are several BCNMs (specifically the lev 20 ones) that can easily be soloed by a Summoner.

Star Orb
# Dec 23 2003 at 2:55 PM Rating: Default
I just tried this one last night. LVL 30whm/15blm. Star Orb. Kicked the crap out of me. A Rare Monster called Flayer Franz and about thirteen other flesh eaters cast a whole lot of earth-element spells on me before I got into battle mode. Rasp, Slow, Stone II and Stonega II. SO--I wouldn't try this unless you're lvl 40 and have a full party (of lvl 40's). Good thing tho is if you do die, you still have your Star Orb. Also, it seems that all the mobs there are all one element, and you only have to have one orb for the whole party. If you're not afraid of dying, go find out. Nothing to lose but XP.

At Last! Now I know what to do with those crazy Beastman Seals I have been saving for god-knows-what purpose.

The NPC in Port Jeuno is named Shami, he stands slightly behind the awning over the stairs leadind down in (H-8). He's close to the San D'Oria Airship Port.

He'll give you a run down of how many seals to turn in for various Orbs, and tell you the places you can use them. When you receive your orb, it will warn you that in order to participate in that Orb's level of monster, your level will be capped to the appropriate level, much like the Mission for Rank 3 dragon.

I haven't gone to try it out yet, but when I do, I'll try to give an example of what sort of treasure dropped.

You may hand in 30 Kindred Seals for a different type of Orb, cannot recall the name. These orbs have a lvl cap of lvl 70. In these battles you may attain your Job Rings or RSE Belts.

I don't have any information on the NM that you will be fighting, and if he has minions with him or not.

They're Rare EX, so you can't have two at once, but I know from talking to Japanese players that you can do the same BCNM several times. You have to be able to, to get all the drops yourself.

The min level is probably related to the monster spawned, as a LV 40 (capped) monster would still kick the crap out of a lv 21 PC. Just a guess tho.
