As many people know, only TH4 effects Rare/Ex drops. These seals are EX, so TH3 or lower will not effect it. You need Thief 75 with the right gear to get these drops faster. Unless you are already (or know someone who is) Thief with TH4 then it is not really worth it, in the time it takes to get TH4 you can just farm seals to make up for it.

For anyone new, dont drop these, try to save em up, you'll probably be wanting them. And be careful not to drop any if theyre in youre inventory (I just lost 50+ the other day on accident).

Beastmen's Seals
# Jul 02 2006 at 2:07 PM Rating: Decent
These are used for various BCNM (Burning Circle Notorious Monster) Fights. Most BCNMs have a number attached to them. ie: BCNM 20, BCNM 30, etc. The number after the BCNM indicates the level cap that the fight is placed at as well as the number of beastmen's seals that you need in order to enter. In order to use your beastmen's seals though, you have to trade a certain number to Shami, an NPC in Port Jeuno (H-8). You trade a certain number of them equal to whatever BCNM you want to do. (BCNM 20, you trade 20 seals to him) He will give you an orb based on however many orbs you traded him. You then go to the corresponding place in Vanadiel where that BCNM is and trade that orb to a burning circle that is there. Upon doing so, you and your party members will enter an area where you fight anywhere from one to several mobs. (note: on some BCNMs there is a limit to the number of people that are allowed to enter.) Once/if all the mobs are defeated, you will et a chest. Opening the chest yields a random assortment of items based on whatever BCNM you did. Many people use BCNMs to make money, and according to your luck at the drops it can be very profitable. For more information on BCNMs, their locations, drops, etc, you can go to http://ffxi.cannotlinkto/bcnm/ . I've found this page to be very helpful.

One little Problem with your statment. Many EX items can be sold in bazaars. Take the Orcish axe for example. it was the best way to make money from levels 4-10 for my character because it sold for around 150gil.

Actually, I think you are thinking of selling to a NPC for that amount. No EX item can be sold in a bazaar, but some can be sold to NPCs.

Okay, so I've learned something about storage almost. If I buy certain furniture I can stack these in storage? Just what furniture do I buy? And of course I want the cheepest thing. I'm started woodcrafting and I made a workbench and put it in my mog but that doesn't let me use the storage option. Note, I'm a logger and every ounce of space counts. I ran out of room in my mog storage (and yes I sort continually) ages ago and I'm only a lvl 13 WAR. Don't advice me to synth my logs. The crystal pops and the log is lost more than it is worth. I synth what the NPC tells me to so my crystal wont pop.

You need to layout your furniture before you can store stuff.

Also in regards to which is the cheapest/best furniture I'm sorry thats not really easy to answer.

Each element offers a mog-enhancment of sometype and each piece of furniture has a storage space amount - I suggest looking at Auction house and making the judgement yourself.

Also you should note that you can only have 1 mog enhancement type - so take this into account.
RE: bs
# Jan 26 2006 at 9:21 AM Rating: Decent
OK the Furnishing go into Mog safe, and then must be placed before the number of Storage slots open, (you can have a max of 80 storage) the cheapest way to get maximun storage is buying water jugs from raboa (40 will fill room and give you water enhancement) more than 80 storage slots is just a waste.
As far as what kind of furnishing any will work, but take a few note, items in storage can ONLY be modified while in HOME NATION mog house, Beastman seals stack and drop from everything (that offers exp) and with that it mind it is easier to carry the partial stack on you and leave the log in the house. Furnishing and qty (elemental strength) will affect your Moghancement.
Dont expect to be using all of the logs you have collected and fell free to sell them to buy the stuff appropriate for your level.
Dont expect the NPC to have recipes that do not go pop. The NPC will mearly give you any of multiple random recipes some are harder and more expensive and others some are super cheap. Fact is the NPC guy can give you recipe 1 over your level or 11 level higher (under conditions) and being told the recipe from NPC does not garuntee the crystal will work, that is based on your skill gear and many other factors. Even as a lvl 100+ crafter you will have numerous times where you have breaks even on recipes that are well below your skill.

Let me begin that maybe most ppl DO drop them...Why!?I dunno...They're so invaluable;Lil' pieces of clay Tablets they call Beastmen seals
are the key to Hidden Treasures....Why camp NMs for countless hours with fierce competition while you could be doin BCNMs...a Lot more of a controlled environment,and not as easy to get the real goods like the "Peacock Charm,Leaping Boots,Emperor Hairpin..." but damn sure it's alot of fun!Keep stacking them and trade them to Shami in Lower Jeuno by one of the Stairways to the AH;get your desired Orbs and Master those BCNMs!I do recommend you read about the BCNM battles in the Allakhazam Links though,get to know what you up against...but if you're tired of camping NMs with great Disappointment,try the
Beastmen Seals Route instead....use a lower job to get them!Happy Huntingand GL to all those who Battle BCNMs for Fortune...it's there for a reason,let's use it up!(~^)

Promies are by far the best place to get Beastmen's Seals. Just go to the bottom level of any of the promies with a lvl30+ job. Everything will rate EP so they're quick kills and good drop rate on seals. I discovered this when we were farming Recollections in Promyvion-Holla. Happy hunting. ^^

Ugh, it WOULD have to be someplace in CoP, wouldn't it?

Got any suggestions for a guy who didn't feel like blowing 20+ bucks on that?

Yeah, uh... I'd like to see you try to get to the higher levels without CoP. No one ever wants to level anywhere other than Bibiki Bay anymore these days, it seems. <.<

I have two suggestions for you.

1) buy CoP, if you are paying 13 bucks or so a month for online play, that means you are paying a monthly fee for internet connection also, which also means that you can afford CoP.

2) If you wish to continue to be a lazy (insert word here) and do not wish to buy CoP. Level Beastmaster. Majority of Beastmaster play is spent solo, and you fight alot of mobs and all drops go to you, not spread amongst 6 people in your party. You will accumulate hundreds of beastmen seals just levelling Bst to ~30-40.

Hmmm... I was thinking about getting a buddy or 2 (rng perhaps?) and try farming beastmen seals in promyvion areas, because the mobs at the beginning of easier promys, like dem are pretty weak and don't drop anything except memory remenants and beastmen seals.
# Jan 18 2005 at 11:43 AM Rating: Decent
Does thf's Treasure Hunter ability help these drop faster or is it the same drop rate?
# Jan 10 2005 at 3:11 AM Rating: Decent
LOL, I feel alot better now. I have been playin for over a year. For the first, I dont know, 2 months, I must have had 40 or 50 seals. I came to the conclusion that, they were useless to me. So I chucked them all, :( . But I have done some BCNM's and now I am addicted to them, big time money in relatively short time. may take a couple hours depending on how many battles you do. I recommend doin BCNM 40 Balga's Dais in giddeus, for 1 you can make over 700k per fight, probably more like 400k but still great, and 2 the fight is really simple as long as you have a bard.

how do you stack things in your Moog safe; i have trouble
RE: stacking Moog safe
# Dec 01 2004 at 2:22 AM Rating: Decent

If you are on PS2 when in your safe, press the Triangle button and select Auto-sort. These seal stack to 99 then starts a new stack. PC CMD? I don't know the controls >.>
RE: stacking Moog safe
# Mar 06 2005 at 10:23 PM Rating: Decent
PC Method.

Open the main option with the minus "-" with arrow buttons select Items. See upper right the system tell you the option. In Items press "+" they system ask you if you to re-sort manually or auto with the arrow botton select yes...you done. Do the same thing went you re-arrange the magics. Also you can arrange manually. In the safe is the same think.

Seals also drop from easy prey as well. I find it nice and easy to get a decent amount seals by... getting a Rng/??? and find some EP worms, couple arrows with a fast delay bow & arrow should be quick to just run and shoot. although just my opinion.

Pretty much every monster you face pre-level 50 drops these suckers.

Just me, or do they seem to drop when you don't have signet?

I dont think a signet has anything to do with these droping. I think it is simply a matter of what you are fighting. If you get exp, then you can get beastmen seals. If you dont get exp from the kill, then you dont get a seal.

The signet has 2 purposes...
1. Conquest
Conquest points & Region Control
2. Crystals
Elementals drop clusters and crystals. but
they only drop crystals if you get exp from
them. they drop clusters almost all the
time whether or not you get exp.

I enjoy having a signet on all the time, so I may be blowing smoke out my ***, but last I heard, signets didnt affect beasty seals

I have one theory.......

SE regulates the drops to a degree, assuming they use a master random calculation refining it with variable limits. Believing this i charted my results concerning Signet.

With Signet - Mostly crystals some others and few beastseals

W/out Signet - obviously no crystals same rate for the other stuff and a few more beastseals.

Im guessing they determine the true value of the drop before the drop items are considered.

If that is the case then all ppl will recieve the value of thier efforts in two different ways equaly. This sounds like something SE would encourage.

Basically odds are its gotta drop something every so often, and if it cant be a crystal its more likely something else, thus slightly increasing the chance of recieving a beastseal.

An idea like this could really effect the crystal market.

You just had a bad luck probably. I's getting seals with and without signet in regions controlled by a nation as well as in regions controlled by beasmens. And after I started to work on my TH I get them often.

The easiest way to get these is to equip a low lvl job and solo around your home nation to whichever area you solo in around lvl 10(Konshtact Highlands, La thiene, etc) Goblins seem to drop these more than any other monsters....in my own experience, im not saying they really do, its just what ive seen...

when you get enuf of these orbs you can trade them to an NPC in port jeuno for BCNM orbs, which lead to battles with monsters that drop very rare (and expensive) items.
