This was my first dynamis experience
# Feb 04 2009 at 10:56 AM Rating: Decent
Just got dyna ls last week and this was the first one I got to do. It was incredible. We had two full alliances only a few people dead at a time and I only died once...mismacro at start of a fight and weapon skilled right away so my fault. I got a raise 3 so it was no biggy. So far loving dyna did windy yesterday and it wasnt bad either didnt even loose a full 1k exp. I lucked out with a great shell.

GOONPLATTONSTFU IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST LS I HAVE EVER BEEN IN! They kicked me out after I did 6 ^%$$#%#sky runs because apparently I 'fell asleep while in the mission'. The truth is,I had to change the batteries in my xbox controller and was afk for 4-5 minutes. Then they kicked me.

Used Hourglass in Bazaar for 1 gil
# Sep 26 2008 at 5:27 AM Rating: Decent

If you see somebody with an hourglass advertised for 1 gil in bazaar, don't buy it, it's used. You might mention it to the person as he/she may have forgotten to take out of the bazaar. Why do people do this?

Standard practice in Dynamis: once you use the hourglass to enter Dynamis, you immediately put your hourglass in bazaar for 1 gil. This applies to everyone entering Dynamis in the alliance.

Rationale: Recall that if your hourglass is removed from your person while in Dynamis, you are kicked out. As a result, at the end of an hour plus of tough play, there inevitably will be people that go AFK, and unfortunately this happens too often just as time is winding down and lots have not dropped because the AFK person has not bid/passed on items.

Resolution of problem: Dynamis leader spends 1 gil and buys hourglass from person that has not bid/passed, kicks them out of Dynamis, and voila! Items now drop to bidder, hopefully before time expires.

Now you know...

Tips for Noobs
# Sep 19 2005 at 1:05 PM Rating: Decent
I have noticed a LOT of new players in the free (sponsored) Dynamis pool, so here are some tips for you on your run into Dynamis (copied from my post on Saotome Kote):

Tips for noobs

So you want some Artifact - First of all, whoever is the sponsor owes it to themselves not to be noobs. What does that mean? That means if you want your moneys worth, only go into Dynamis on a good moon phase, ideally near 100% ~ The AF in Dynamis is exactly like farming a testimony outside of Dynamis ~ The better the moon phase, the better the drops. Only noobs sponsor Dynamis on a 23% and dwindling moon phase (also has influence on your money drops too) - Sponsoring a Dynamis run on a worthless Moon Phase is like throwing your money away.

White Mage Bloopers - Another thing is WHITE MAGES PLEASE WATCH WHAT SPELL YOU ARE CASTING!!! My dynamis the other day was sunk completely because of the idiotic White Mage that Teleported (yes, you heard me right TELEPORTED) an entire party (including the main PLD tank) mid-Dynamis to freaking Altepa Desert. Needless to say, I think that white mage got flamed to hell and back in-game. Please watch what spell you are casting, hell, go ahead and macro it (without party text that would cause more lag).

Pulls - please get a puller that knows what they are doing, especially a puller that understands the meaning of "sacrifice pull" which, sorry to say, is an all important skill in the expert Dynamis areas. Say, for example, the puller messes up and links like the entire zone of mobs and can see it... in this case DO NOT BRING THEM BACK TO CAMP. Bringing the mobs back to camp means a complete wipe so just SACRIFICE pull instead of ruining everyone's chance in Dynamis.

Black Mage saves the day - A Dynamis run without a lot of Black Mages WILL FAIL. If you are in a group that is heading into Dynamis without Black Mages, ditch them. Yes, you heard me right, ditch them to the curb because they are gonna KO and wipe and lose EXP. The real key to winning in Dynamis has to do with Sleepga and sending Nukes onto the evil Statues. Melee ABSOLUTELY cannot be allowed to hit a statue. Why? Because if a Statue gains Tactical Points to 100% its going to knock you on yer @$$ in seconds flat with the worlds worst AOE attack ever invented. ONLY Black Mages and Red Mages can attack the statue mobs with magic. A wave of continuous Sleepgas should be followed with a heavy nuke on statue type mobs.

Let Sleeping Dogs Alone - One last rule of Dynamis is NEVER EVER EVER EVER WAKE UP A SLEPT MOB. After the Black Mages Sleep them hard into Slumberland with their Magic, never go up to them and wake them up. Never. Ever. Never ever wake them up. The key to making sure you never wake them up on accident? Use a very rarely known command which is /assist ~ used like this-

/assist yourtanksnamehere

no quotes or anything used in this. spam this command like crazy so you dont wake up a slept mob. Your tank (Paladin or Ninja) will select which mob to fight. ONLY let them decide the mob to fight. Otherwise... guess what... yup... you will wake the sleeping death monsters. Sleepga is essential in these areas.

Melee take it easy for once - Finally, all Melee jobs (Samurai, Dragoon, Dark Knight, Warrior etc) stay back. Stay all the way back. Take it easy for once. Let the mages Sleep and Nuke away and let your Tank bring the non-Statue mobs back to you. This is especially important in Dynamis-Bastok because of the scorpion type mobs which have a move called "Breakga" which turns everyone to stone in the area of effect. It is important for Melee to stay out of Breakga range so that not everyone will be turned to stone. Keep it organized and just plain let the tank bring back the mob to you. Then pounce on the mob and spam Weapon Skills, defeat the mob, then wait patiently for the next mob to be brought back via the tank.

And that's about it, really. It's not impossible, it just takes a supreme effort of teamwork and excellence. If any one person screws up here, it could mean everyone has to suffer. Everyone must be at the top of their game. Good Luck!!

Moon phase does not always affect drops, I've gone on all types of moon phase and drops will always vary. We've gone on new moon and gotten 14 af2's and 2 100's, we've gone on full and gotten nothing D:<. Most of our af drops seem to come on waxing or waning moons, not full or new.

Dynamis Music?
# Sep 15 2005 at 8:55 PM Rating: Default
258 posts
My highest job level is currently 50, so I can't go to Dynamis yet. Anybody know what the name of the song played in Dynamis is? If you have iTunes, just search for "Final Fantasy XI" and you'll get all three soundtracks, and the Dynamis music should be there. However, it's not called "Dynamis" or anything like that so I don't know. Can anyone help figure out which song it is?
RE: Dynamis Music?
# Nov 23 2005 at 10:59 AM Rating: Default
It is the same music that is played durring the CS when you enter the throne room for mission 5-2
# Aug 02 2005 at 3:08 PM Rating: Decent
So we got a person who is bring Gilsellers into Dynamis on Cait sith named Ryudo. They are trying to sell currency for 50k per single unit and 5mil per 100 unit. Well I guess Relic weapons will become harder to get if you plan on buying currency from these FOOLS.

by the way...


Considering if your going to sell them for that much why buy it when EVERY ONE ELSE sells for 15k??????????????????? Really its pretty stupid

Jump on the band wagon if your on cait sith!


chances are they are being sold by gilseller mules and/or Ryudo's henchmen.

Map 1: http://dca.eleventeenth.com/assets/images/0/20050108215624076_86_13.jpg

Blue number: Time extension in minutes (incomplete)
Red s: Statue (incomplete)
Purple s: MP-refill green-eye statue (incomplete)
Red line: General path

Boss appearance:
3 trigger NMs Gi'Pha Manameister, Ko'Dho Cannonball, and Ze'Vho Fallsplitter must be defeated for the boss Gu'Dha Effigy to appear.

Medicine required:
Nothing special

BST pet attack:
Breakga (Area petrify)

Statue TP attack:
Area stun + damage
Frontal damage + gravity

Clear the chocobo stable, which has many BST. The scorpion pets use breakga, so silence and sleep them.

The closest statue east of the auction house should be cleared.

Clear the front and inside of the auction house.

The south Gustaberg exit monsters should be ignored.

West of the auction house will be a mass link of statues.

Clear to G-6 and fight your way through the alley. The monsters above the alley can be ignored.

The time extension is in the part of the alleyway normally blocked from access outside of Dynamis.

All three triggers can be pulled without sacrifices.

Clear the way to the Zeruhn Mines trigger NM, because there is a time extension somewhere in there. Some monsters on the north side may be ignored.

Clear the F-5 trigger nm.

Sacrifice pull

The boss will be sacrifice pulled to F-5. The sacrifice puller should train monsters towards the start point after aggroing it and all of its potential links. The sacrifice puller will need to run into the monsters that were ignored and the monsters that spawned after all trigger NMs were defeated.

After the boss dies, there are repops in the auction house and the start point. Make sure the sacrifice puller gets a raise and to at least G-7 before killing the boss. It looks safe to clear all remaining monsters for drops except for the south Gustaberg exit and the start point.

Just did this today, we had about 60 ppl of averaging in the 70-75's. Whoa, did we ever get wasted. When one of the NM mobs poped up wit about 15 other mobs. BANG, there goes about 40 ppl. BTW, Decipline and Organization is the key to winning as well

The HourGlass costs 1 million Gil and this is for to participate in the Dynasmis Event.

RE: perpet hourglass
# May 13 2005 at 5:37 AM Rating: Decent
You buy it from the Goblins you see at the beginning of those dungeon zones, Beadeaux, Castle Oztroja, and Davoi. Also, you need to be 65+ for the game to even let you in. I'm 68, and going on my first Dynamis tonight. 68 is the minimum on my linkshell, Obsidian. I'm sure it'll be great fun, gotta clear out some room for screenshots! ^^

Chances are it was, dynamis is brutal. You will always appear near the Mog House after you get booted out. If you get cleared out towards the end you will have sometimes 30-50 people or more dead in the MH entrance.
# Aug 24 2004 at 4:41 PM Rating: Default
you buy the hourglass from an npc, cost like 1 mil gil, but you have as many ppl come as you want so it would end up being about 75k each
