Yes, in the BCNM Steamed Sprouts it is almost 100% required to have a DRK, the Boss Mandy Casts Flood, and u need a DRK to stun it when it casts. You cant substitute a BLM instead either, because they are unable to use this spell because of the level restriction.

I'm looking to start using up these accursed seals; I've horded them for 172 combined levels, and I'd like to start seeing some returns. XD

I'm thinking that I'll do the Undying Promise with the LS for a round, taking advantage of my Monkliness; we have more than a few excellent players with the perfect jobs for it. Barring that, I'll probably hop onto a Steamed Sprouts run when they need an extra person. ^^

My group set the record on this BCNM40 last night on Titan, NIN/WAR, MNK/WAR and RDM/BLM. Drops for my orb included Phalanx, Elegant Shield, Jennet Shield, Mahogany Log and 2 Bone Chips. Other than having my shadows -gaed away by the BLM form it was fun and not too tough. Keep it paralyzed, Jubaku rocks :D

Edit: Referring in this post to the battle "Undying Promise," the skeleton with 5 forms, not the other available BC40 here. Also, we meant to take RDM with WHM sub but our friend didn't have it leveled. We worked it out fine with the party described above anyway. No Erase dropped though...

Undying promise

You should add BCNM 40 in Fei'Yin (Qu'Bia Arena), "Undying Promise" (u fight a ghoul that regenarates himself 5 times, first 3 times he's DRK, then he turns to BLM, it's a piece of cake if u follow the tips i'll give u: all u need is a PLD, a MNK (galka MNK is a good choice) and a WHM +3 hi-potions(hi-ethers for the whm) per fight +2 refresh drinks per fight for the PLD and WHM + food !), (u can do this BCNM with 3 ppl instead of 6, in that way u make more money ;-) ), i've done this 5 times using the star orb and i got very nice drops (for example: scroll of phalanx) ^_____^;. If u try to do this, GL and HF! Thank you :)

If you're not sure if your orb is cracked or not, you can trade it to Shami who will inspect it. If it's cracked, he will tell you so and take it back.

So there is no way of telling if it is chipped or not unless you try to use it?

Situation: did a bcnm40, i traded my orb, but i think that someone may have traded there orb first? is this possable?

Any Use when chipped?

I went with a party do to BCNM 40 and when it came my turn to put in the orb, we lost and my orb broke...

... 2 questions:

1. Is there any use for a chipped orb?
2. Does your orb chip if you are victorious?

I read in the forums here that if you trade the orb back to the person you got it from you get conquest points. Never tried it but I thought I would suggest it at least :)

Good luck.

Is the chipped orb a different item? I used my orb and we ended up losing the battle. I still have a Star Orb, and it still says it is "solid-looking."

I don't want to show up at future 40BC with a nonworking orb, but I'd hate to toss it and waste 40 seals if it is, in fact, still good.

Cracked orbs look exactly the same as regular orbs except when you try to use them it says they're cracked. The only thing I know of that you can do with it is to throw it away. If you put in your orb, it tells you its cracked. But if you don't actually enter the battle field it won't crack a good one.

ok i had a Cracked Orb... and traded it back to the guy i recieved it from ..... i looked at Conquest points/Gil/exp...he said "O look a litle crack well its worthless now. but i do have more avalable." notthing changed when i traded it back... so its save to say after it gets used.... throw it away. usless they change this in a future patch or update. i sugjest just throwing it away.
i hope this helps out :o)
